Not much to say they only served 7 meat from the menu, for the all you can eat. the menu said 15 types of meats, disappointed meal
My friend, an 82 year old doctor, got her wallet stolen - as per the Police assessment, while we stood at the bar before dinner. She got a text telling her of fraudulent use of her credit card for $2,000 within 30 minutes of our arrival.
Re. the service, we got the wrong dessert (which was then replaced).
I would not recommend this place. However, the food was good, and perhaps you could go and keep an eye on your belongings.
Interesting, well-prepared meats (rodizio) and side bar. Complimentary starters were a treat! Happy hour offerings were plentiful and tasty. Great service!
It was not worth the amount spent. Didn’t like the layout or salad bar being self serve.
International Women’s Day with my family..
Lots of Great food, my recommendation, sample everything. A unique service experience. European style meal, you could graze for hours. Would not recommend for a quick lunch location. We went on a weeknight and the main floor was a little noisy especially later in the evening.
I have been to many Brazilian style restaurants, and I can say that Pampas' rodizio (meat) was not very good. The picanha was served overcooked and very dry, as well as the other meats were not up to my standards for a Brazilian restaurant for the $55/person price. Salad bar was good.
Great service; as much tasty meat as we could eat; added yummy scallops; so full did not have room for desserts
great service, excellent and tasty food. Best brazilian steakhouses I've been to.
We were a big group and enjoyed the dinner service and nice wine list.
Slow service food was ok
Great salad bar and meat carvings. Fun atmosphere. No desserts but several places nearby
A nice, but fairly typical, Brazilian churrascaria. Very nice service. Very good wine list.
Had a great dinner with co-workers. Great atmosphere and food, would recommend for any occasion where you are looking to have a great meal with great friends.
Always a favorite of mine when in need of steak and more of it. Staff are always friendly and the food keeps coming until you say uncle.
Amazing food like always!
We received EXCELLENT service from our waiter, Luis! He was very attentive and explained all of our questions with patience and details. We had a wonderful time tonight. Thank you so much, Luis!
Went with high hopes after reading positive reviews on Yelp. The setting is very nice. The salad bar is excellent. Unforunately, the meats were not very good. The filet mignon had a very unpleasant taste like nothing I have ever had before. Unlike other Brazilian Steakhouses I have been to, the meat servers were very scarce. The ones most plentiful were their cheapest offerings. Finally had to ask about some of the offerings on the menu if they were even available. Many times the servers came around with not even enough meat on their spit for our table of 4. Than they never came back with that offering. The one I went to in Vegas had the meat servers on the floor continuously to the point you almost had to fend them off. Will not return.
Valentine's dinner went great. We arrived early for our reservation and were seated promptly. Our server was a pleasant woman. The food was delicious, all the meats were well seasoned and the sides were good too. . It's just a little pricey, but good for our special night.
Meat took forever to come around and stopped for 20 minutes halfway through. Restaurant packed with extra tables for Valentines. Mediocre service and majority of meat was subpar. Major ripoff.
Great for Valentines Day!
Valentines celebration, the food was delicious and the service excellent!
Was seated immediately. Our server Jorge was great. Food was excellent. Can’t really complain about anything.
The food is delicious and the service attentive. Only downside is the high price.
We always love Pampas. Our kids love the fact meat comes around on swords. And side bar is great, and meat is very tasty. Our kids always ask us to take them to Pampas for special occasions.
We were charged for an extra meal ($55) and when we called the next day they said they could not refund our money-only give us a gift card. Or server also charged us for the"free" birthday dessert ($9). Not the most money in the world, but why were we charged?
We ordered the fish (Halibut) of the day, but it turned out to be quite dissappointing as it was rather small in portion and overdone on the stove, with too much salt in the sauce.
Food was delicious! The ambiance was better than Santana Row, the dinning place it is more private less crowded. Perfect for a date night.
Been coming here for years to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. Best value on the Peninsula! Food is delish, wine is delish, service is great, and we leave full and happy every time!
Food looked so healthy and well prepared
Overall mood was so nice
Employees provided perfect service
Although there is red/geeen notification for wait staff to bring the meat selections, we had to ask for the waiters to bring out the food several times.
When we got the food it was good but the wait between the selections was way too long long. I was very disappointed and will probably not return.
Charcuterie is not my thing, but my companion was very impressed. Nice salad bar. I really appreciated the "well-done" plate; i'm on cancer meds and can't have raw meat. Attentive waiters.
We went there for dinner me and my husband but Unfortunately the service was very bad poor quality of meats poor salad buffet Very noisy We couldn’t finish our dinner we love Brazilian Steakhouse but this place was the worst restaurant that I have ever had don’t waste your time and your money
Love this Pampas, great service and food is delicious.
Pampasbis is an excellent place to go! We loved it.
the waitress is so impatient here. Overall food is great.
Excellent - Pampas is not to be missed! Service and ambiance was great. Food was plentiful and fantastic. We have dined at many, many restaurants around the globe and this was highly memorable and recommended!
Meats are good but price is way off the charts expensive and I don't think we'll be returning. I'd rather go to a nice restaurant and get my own meal and not worry about choosing meats as they come to the table. The wait staff and meat servers are wonderful, we were there when the place was empty so we were able to get everything we wanted at a good pace. I can never eat enough of the food bar AND the meats to warrant spending all that money. I'd almost just order the food bar separately and skip the meats, as there are so many really really good dishes and salads on the bar that I didn't scoop up because I knew I'd be too full to enjoy the meats and get my money's worth of them. The tenderloins (adobo pork, and parmesan and garlic and herb beef) are the absolute best, the chicken (mild and spicy) are terrific, and the bacon-wrapped turkey is decadent. If you have a huge stomach, go for it. But it's painful if you try not to overstuff yourself. I wish I could just order the pork tenderloin or the filet alone, and like my son said, just have one salad instead of the whole "food bar".
Go here hungry! Pampas is great for a meat eater with a big appetite. We had 15 different meats being served the night we went and had them all! The salad bar is huge and full of lots of variety to complement the meat dishes. I learned from my first time, not to eat a salad before, but get sides to accompany the meat. I get small tastes of them all. Lots of fun and very tasty! We ate early so the noise level was moderate and the service was excellent!
We loved the creative drinks in the bar. The Diablo cocktail is an interesting and exotic tasting!
The restaurant's decor is beautiful and roomy with soft features to dampen the sounds. The service was wonderful and we loved the amazing array of foods in the salad bar. The meats were wonderful to taste and we enjoyed how they were presented and carved at our table.
A very fun evening and loved the experience!
