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.

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.

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.
