The service was good, a bit too pricey and they keep on missing us even though our puck says Green.
Normally an outstanding experience. Tonight was average. We like eating late. Initially gaucho servers pushed for you to be ready to eat meat. I don't like to rush. Then when we were ready they were no where in sight. Our waiter didn't go out of his way.
This was our first time at Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse. It was incredible. There was an amazing selection of delicious meats never mind the outstanding salad bar. The majority of options were gluten free which was a huge bonus. The service was outstanding. Never once were we left waiting. There is absolutely something for everyone and I would highly recommend for any occasion.
The food was outstanding as usual. The eight of us try to get together here a few times a year. The new items on hand were very delicious, and our server Karen was top shelf. The restawas very lively that night and everyone was having a great time. Karen was so knowledgeable and helpful, couldn't ask for a better waitress. We plan on keeping up our visits for years to come. Great job by everyone there.
Excellent service, amazing meats and a great buffet. We really enjoyed the Brazilian experience!
Great food, great staff, overall a good experience.
This was my second time and they did not disappoint. Our server Matt was awesome and food was great.
Awesome evening, our server was great, food was good, atmosphere relaxed..
Nice place to go if you like meat
Overall pleasant good food good value
I really enjoyed the salad bar, the hot buffet selection and all of the different BBQ meat selections
Great service, a bit loud in the restaurant, wonderful buffet options, didn’t get all of the meat options at our table, some of the meat was over cooked. Overall a great experience
The service was out of chart, and for meat lover best place for a get together place.
Excellent experience. The food was amazing, the seasonal meats were delicious. The waiter was good. Dennis, a meat carver, was extraordinary! Not only was he super nice, he asked super attentive questions. He treated all the tables like he would if it were a regular restaurant and made sure that we were still doing great when he came by with his next meat to carve. Amazing job on hiring this guy!
We go there often . This time the service was not great and we didn’t get all the cuts of meat. I think we only had 5 cuts. That being said they were my favourite and preferred cuts .
Went for our 1 year anniversary dinner. Service was great and friendly. Tons of gluten free options and half price wine on wednesdays.
It was a bit loud during the rush but totally worth it. We will be back!
Unreal food and service. Will definitely be going back soon. Maybe this weekend
I am so pleased with my visit I feel compelled to tell you about it. Toni was our server and she was very informative and nice. All the other team members were also great but in particular Tobias. He was really pleasant and his service was great! Of course the food was also great and the Dulce de Leche coffee was to die for. Thank you Pampa team for being so good at what you do!
First time here. Went with my son to celebrate our belated birthdays. A lot of good quality food during Downtown Dining Week.
Will be back!
The service was very good. Ambiance maybe lacking- didn’t feel warm. Some of the meat was too well done and some of the beef was tough.Pork was delicious. Salad selection was good, but a bit disappointing in taste.
First time at Pampa and wasn’t disappointed. Great web site that explains the experience. Interesting concept for a restaurant. Basically a buffet that comes to you (meat options anyways). Meat was served hot and most everything else is served cold... this is the Brazilian way and that is fine. Meats included beef, pork, chicken, lamb and a variety of sausages all served roasted or barbecued and carved off the skewer at your table. The “SALAD” bar is definitely unique and worth a visit or two. Staff were very friendly and open to questions.
Easy to book with internet capabilities. Had e-mail and phone reminders which was appreciated. The off-downtown/government ambience was great. Easy to find parking within easy walking distance.
The food was terrific. Loved the salad-bar. My wife wondered if there was a special price for just using the salad-bar. The waiter was excellent in conversation and ideas on selections.
Loved that you could have small portions of meat or several pieces if you preferred.
The desert selection ample and what we chose was excellent. My wife and I shared the passion fruit desert. We were able to converse easily with friends. The ambience was terrific. I appreciated that the manager shared with us that even though we had a 2 hour limit, the anticipated arrival of guests allowed us an extended time frame. We did use this time to have a good conversation with our friends. An excellent night out for all four of us. Thank-you so much.
Very friendly staff who came around with very tasty skewers of meat. Excellent selections of food. We had a good time.
I enjoyed my experience. It was my first time at Pampa's and I went during DT dining week so there was a lunch deal going on. The food was good, especially the steak cut. The pork however was slightly dry and the chicken was only average. They have Brazilian cheese buns and they are amazing. I had 3-4 buns and I don't usually eat that many.
Went to Pampas's for their dining week $18 lunch. Good value, good service. Everything was good except the Parmesan pork was too heavily seasoned.
awesome place, great experience. the staff go out of their way to please. the food is great. Come prepared to eat alot of meat as they keep bringing it to your table.
I was impressed the experience was so authentic to Brazil.
Be prepared to spend a bit extra but it was well worth it
Absolutely love Pampa! Have been a few times and love it every time. Service is great, food is great, and although it's a bit pricey, you can eat as much as what you want.
Food was great, they really aren't F**king around with the red/green card system. The "Gauchos" just won't leave you alone if you got a green means go on your table. Awesome for people with an appetite. I have NEVER had service like that, I actually never had to try to get my hosts attention either. Matthews was right on point with drinks and hospitality and Ashley was quick to find us great seating. Thank you to both of you and to the gentleman who drew the blinds and gave my wife and I a great view of downtown I really appreciated knowing about the restaurant, it's history and generally being a standup dude. If you go with an appetite the price is well worth it. If you just want a snack i wouldn't bother.
Also. Free underground parking after 6p.m. and you'll never need to set foot outside if you don't feel like it.
It was a great experience. The staff were absolutely fabulous!!
Excellent food! Excellent service! Will definitely be back.
Excellent dinning experience and service. We booked a reservation for my husband's birthday as he had never been there and he truly enjoyed every aspect of the experience!
The food was delicious and the staff very pleasant. We had a wonderful family meal!
We went here on a Friday night - was busy but no line at the door. The salad bar had a good selection, but no sign of the fabled cheese buns. Service was attentive. For the price (70 for two drinks and dinner for one) I think the value isn't great. We tried most of the meats. Garlic steak was lovely, a bit chewy but perfectly cooked and nicely flavored. The bacon wrapped chicken was excellent, as was the pork belly. We found a couple others a bit dry (they're not working with expensive cuts at this all-you-can-eat establishment). Overall it was tasty, but unless someone else is footing the bill I'm unlikely to be back.
The restaurant is meat heavy and service is attentive. It is relatively expensive. The suggested tip amounts at the bottom of the bill (15%, 18%, etc.) are based on price of food, drink and include GST. The tip should be calculated on food and drink only.
I have been to this location as well as other in the world. I enjoyed the experience. This is a great place to catch up with old friends and fill yourself up with tasty meat
A person can only ingest so much food and not all palates like the same thing. This is a lovely idea but way too overpriced.
Perfect place for the meat lovers
We went for family supper on a Sunday night. The food was plentiful and delicious. The servers were all pleasant and enthusiastic. There are many choices. Something for everyone.
Overall we were disappointed in this meal. Beef - most cuts- was dry and tough. Sausage was dry. The only good serving we had was the bacon wrapped chicken which was tender and very flavourful. Desert was creme brûlée that was soft around the edges and cold, although the custard tasted good. The wait staff did a great job and were very attentive. For someone looking for volume this might be a good choice, but if you are looking for quality I would not recommend this restaurant.
Love it here! Went for our 10 year anniversary, get food and service was great! I will be going back again!
