Food was fantastic but pricier than expected. Wine is overpriced both by the glass and bottle. Service was great and the overall experience was pleasant.

I was really looking forward to trying Pampa, as I had tried the Brazilian Steak house in Canmore. However, I was really disappointed. I made a reservation for 10 people and not one of us was happy about our dinner. Meal should be in the area of 30.00 per person, not 50.00.
Buffet was smaller than what we thought. The buffet menu items were empty most of the time, they barely put out any bread. Very small selection for the hot buffet. Meat portions came out too fast, wine was over priced.
I would not recommend this restaurant unless there was a price change.....definitely not worth the price.

Our first visit to Pampa was absolutely amazing. We ended up being early for our reservation so we were accommodated at the bar. The bar tender was friendly and jovial, and made great drink recommendations. The general manager was also behind the bar and shared with us about the smoked bourbon drink that on his recommendation we had to try! It did not disappoint. He also recommended us an amazing Rose wine that accompanied our dinner. Our server Susan, was a ray of sunshine. She was prompt, attentive and read the energy of the room magnificently. She explained to us how the Pampa service worked, made us laugh, and brought us an amazing caramel cheesecake to top off our dinner. She was professional, courteous, but most of all FUN!

Between the staff, the food, the atmosphere, and the drinks at Pampa, we can confidently say it was the BEST dining experience we've ever had. Thank you Susan and Peter for such an incredible evening of dining and delight! We hope to see you again soon!

The quality seems to have gone down, with more prepared (ex. sausages) meats being served. We were also very surprised when they charged our kids as adults. At least they refunded the difference when I called in the next day to complain. The dinner remains good, but I am starting to seriously question the value.

The service is always amazing. The food is on point. Never a sub par experience.

I think the only improvement I can think of is, to somehow show how you prefer beef, (well done, rare) just too add another level of excellence. And it's always a travesty when there's no cheddar bread puffs, they're one of my favorite things!

The atmosphere was a bit intimidating since we don’t often go to high end restaurants but the experience was well worth it. The food was amazing and there was quite a lot.
The service was good but it took some time to get our server. We needed to speak to some of the waiters and workers so we could get one. Understandably it was very busy so it’s hard to keep track of everything. Will definitely be coming back.

UPDATE: management reached out to me immediately after this review to follow up with my customer experience. WONDERFUL customer service which was handled promptly and professionally. This left no doubt in my mind that we would be soon returning to dine at Pampa.
Was there with my partner for a celebratory dinner on March 17, 2019 for Edmonton Downtown Dining Week. The server was helpful in explaining how everything worked as it was my first time. The buffet and soup selection was impressive. The meat options were all good but the rump roast, garlic steak and Parmesan pork were especially impressive. The only low point was once my partner ordered a decafe coffee. It tasted burnt and old neither of us wanted to spoil our enjoyment of the meal with a ‘bad taste left in our mouths’. When the server asked if everything was okay with the coffee and we explained that it really tasted off and didn’t want a new one, I was surprised that the $5.00 drip coffee with two sips out of it was not taken off the bill. We both had glasses of wine, so our meal bill was substantial enough that removing the crummy coffee would not have hurt the bottom line. Other than that, great option for a special occasion.

This is our first time to this location, as we've been to another Pampa location in the past. Our friends agreed that meat quality can change from different locations from time to time. The meat was much more tender during this visit than our other one.

Service has always been great. Our server was Amy, she asked if there was any particular meats we wanted, and she ensured they came by. Everyone was very helpful as well.

The regular price is a bit too expensive for us, especially since dessert isn't included and it's another $10 on top of it. We would consider coming back if there's a deal, such as Downtown Dining Week, which is why we visited.

I found Pampa to be way overpriced. The noise was so loud it was hard to carry a conversation with anyone. The meat was good what I did try. It was hard to get the servers to come around with the meat i did like. The steak and lamb was so rare and cold that it was basically cold. It was a nice place for a special occasion, but I will not go back.

We tried the downtown dining option of 1 meat with salad bar. My friend selected pork and watched us clear our plates and reload before pork came around and we asked twice. She should've been allowed to have beef or chicken if the pork wasn't ready. Some beef I had was really undercooked and I like medium rare, and it was chewy at times. Other than that, the salad bar is mostly cold items that arent that great.

We went in for downtown dining week and decided to pay the extra to get the full menu experience. Our server forgot to give us the little black card to indicate that that was what we wanted so, by the time we figured it out and asked about the items we hadn't tried we were already so full. They did bring them out to us which was nice but some of our party passed because they had no more room to eat. So that was a little disappointing, but the meal itself was very tasty and the salad bar was beautiful- as was dessert. It was an experience for sure and I would recommend everyone try it at least once.
I would suggest a menu card though so that diners are able to check off the different meats they have tried so that they know better which ones they like, dislike or would like to try again.
