About

Welcome to Pampas Argentinas, authentic Argentine steakhouse and restaurant. From the province of Córdoba, Argentina's heartland, we bring you the culinary delights of the renowned Argentinean Pampas, one of the richest grazing regions in the world and the home of the legendary Gaucho. Argentinean cooking celebrates the richness of the Pampas lands and the simplicity and pureness of the Gaucho, while drawing influences from its largest immigration waves of Italians, Spaniards, and other Europeans. Combined with its fine wines and the Argentinean appetite for all things tasty, we invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy the authentic taste of our homeland.

Everything was superb except that I had requested 2 desserts with candles to sing Happy Birthday because it was 2 of my guest birthday and only got one , I understand the part that only one dessert was ordered by one of the Birthday people but it would have been a nice by the waiter to bring a courtesy cupcake or any type for the other person to blow the candle after all tip isn't pre charged.

Everything we ordered was amazing. I had the best Paella I've ever tasted, and I've eaten a lot of Paella in my lifetime. The ribeye was so tender, cooked to perfection, and seasoned perfectly. We also had an asparagus w/prosciutto and cheese appetizer that was delicious. The service is wonderful, and we really enjoy the atmosphere and music.

I know it was Valentine's Day but they seemed super overwhelmed. We barely saw any waiters and ours was "busy fixing the computer system" or something. They brought out our food but couldn't figure out which table it belonged to so it sat for a few minutes until they figured it out. Once it got to us it was luke-warm at best. After trying to get a waiters attention for 5 minutes we finally got the dessert menu but worried how long it would take to get it so we didn't bother.

They are also listed as having Valet parking but they haven't had valet in 2 years.

Had dinner here with an old friend. Thank you to this restaurant for making our reunion even more fantastic. The staff was friendly and the food was superb. My branzino was fresh and so, so tasty and my friend's steak was juicy and delicious. The dessert flambeed at the table was yummy and made for some great pictures. And of course we washed it all down with some great sangrias. What more can anyone ask for???

Love Pampas and was very excited by the new items on the menu. They still have all of the classic dishes from Argentina like empandas and parilla, but also have some new appetizers and main dishes. We tried the mussels with Spanish chorizo which was awesome and then got our favorite steaks: the Peppered Filet Mignon and the mixed grill.

This isn't like a typical Manhattan steakhouse that gives you a sliver of filet mignon; at Pampas you get huge portions and a ton of side dishes too.

Bonus: they have a new cocktail menu too. I like the Diego, which is a great fernet drink, but the best is The Special, which is really a dessert with ice cream, Kahlua, dulce de leche and whipped cream. Great end to another wonderful meal.

Unfortunately we did not have a good experience at this restaurant. The service was extremely slow. It took over 1 hour to get our meal. There was no bread brought to the table after the first serving. And no apologies were made for the slow service. Additionally the price was excessive for both the portion and the quality of food that was served. Maybe it was a bad night. However would not go back again.

Some of the appetizers were good...these were mostly salads. Soup delivered stone cold and was returned. Came back hot in few minutes but probably reheated in a microwave. Grilled chicken was un-eatable, way too salty. Filet Mignon Champignon was ok but it came in two slices?
Desserts were very good.

The service was IMPECCABLE. Tended to our every need and couldn't ask for anything different.

Drinks were strong and well worth the price. Also lived how well seasoned the meat was.

Definitely worth a revisit.

The decor of the place is very nice. I had the rib eye which was quite good. My wife had the peppered filet mignon. The sauce they put on it is divine. My garlic mashed potatoes could be a meal by themselves.

Michael was our server. He was absolutely awesome. His recommendations were perfect. I had to laugh when he told my wife that he wouldn't let her have her filet well done, I had to laugh. He then explained why and all was right. When he brought our drinks out, he stayed and watched to make sure we were happy with them. He made them himself. Thank you, Mike!!!!

We're both looking forward to going back. We had a lot of fun over dinner. It was a wonderful dinner experience. Highly recommend!

Short Ribs were more like Flanken than Short Ribs. They were also very tough, hard to cut, and full of fat and grizzle. The restaurant is very noisy and difficult to have a conversation. The glass of white wine was tiny and not worth the price. All in all, not a good experience.

My husband and I loved the food. He had the skirt steak which he said was very good. I had the fish special, Branzino which was amazing! So although the food was excellent, service was not so good. That's because it seemed like a long time for our entree to come out. And the waiter just didn't seem as attentive as he should be. But the ambiance is nice, and my husband got to watch the Copa America Centenario on their bar TV. Would definitely go back if we're in the mood for steak and good Argentinian cuisine.

We always enjoy our dinners at Pampas.
The staff is courteous and attentive.
The lay out and atmosphere is serene and peaceful.
The food is phenomenal. (Filet Mignon, empanadas, Steak Milanese, Fresh Seafood with Pasta, Flan, Buffalo tomato and mozzarella, etc.....)
...and on this particular night, 60s and 70s classic rock was playing in the background. We always enjoy the South American music we hear, but, this set on this night topped off a great dining experience.
We'll be back...again and again....
