Food was good but not great as previous visits, I like the new menu (Cinnamon Grilled Pineapple was a favourite on our table and the new Garlic Sausage is really good!).

The Picanha (my favourite) was hit and miss, with one round being great and another being so bad that the server could not cut it out of the skewer. The Lamb was tough, I am not sure if it was overcooked or a bad cut. All in all, it didn't mar the experience but in a rodizio, consistency is key!

Thumbs down for the new knifes, which are not serrated and can't cut anything. I was unable to cut through the skin of the pork belly and some of the though Picanha and Lamb. Please replace ASAP.

We were celebrating Graduation, so the special cake was a really nice touch. Thank You!

This was a very disappointing experience. The food wasn’t great and it was overpriced. Most of the meats were pretty tough and lacked flavor. Out of the eight cuts that were offered, only a couple were worth it. The salad bar was also a lacking in interesting dishes. I have been to other Brazilian barbecue places that were much better than this one.
This service however was attentive and friendly, but for dinner and wine, it was not worth the $100 dollar price tag per person.

The food is okay but certainly not incredible or noteworthy. The salad bar was acceptable however servers are quite nice. The deterrent is the COST! Many other higher quality restaurants that serve excellent food and charge the same or LESS. Save your money, this restaurant is not worth it.

I really love this restaurant and we’ve been the upwards of 20+ times. Great service. This time we found the meats were coming out at inconsistent levels of being cooked. We were served 2 cuts of beef that were blue and one that was well done. We spoke to the manager just to bring it to his attention as we had never experienced this before at Pampas. He was great and followed up with the kitchen and ourselves, and we will definitely be back again.

We celebrated our son's 30th birthday and he was thrilled with the entire experience. The food and service were very good. We did order a dessert for our son and we were surprised that it was added to our bill. We thought that considering the cost of the meal and his significant birthday, the dessert would have been complimentary.
Also, I'm not sure how careful you are with gluten - free items. I thought I had stayed away from anything with gluten, but the next day I broke out with exema as I do when I eat gluten, so I'm not sure if there was something that was contaminated.
Overall, it was a lovely evening and our son is looking forward to our return.

This was the first time I have been to Pampas. The food was outstanding although the service was very poor. Some of my friends had drinks already and others hadn't even been asked. Couple times she had forgot she had took a drink order and re asked what we would like. I had noticed she didn't have a notepad for taking drink and desert orders. This caused a really long wait for our bill at the end of our meal.

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.
