Had an outside reservation and the weather wasn’t cooperating. Manager went above and beyond to arrange an indoor table for us, saving my wife’s Mother’s Day celebration. We visit the area three or four times a year and Pamplona will definitely be our go-to place. Food was excellent and the Sangria is outstanding.

Went for brunch! For the little time you have for your reservation I thought the service would’ve been better. It took 30 minutes to get my first food item out and all the other guests at my table had already been served twice. Also the waitress rarely came to check on your table after 45 minutes we had to get other people to help.

My husband and I came here for brunch. Overall the food was really good and we ate a great variety of dishes. The place seemed more low key than we would have liked with serving plastic cups. The mimosas were flowing and we had a good time.

We ordered the Pan con Tomate, Mac and cheese , the duck paella and the vegetable paella. The pan and the Mac and cheese were pretty good. The paellas were alright. Our server was excellent. There was a table next to us that was pretty noise but overall the ambiance was very nice.

I went to Pamplona with 3 friends. We all ordered the Taste of Spain. Tapas dishes came out quickly and staff seemed to work together to make sure food was delivered and cleared promptly. Two of my friends ordered Passion Fruit Mojitos (which I don't think is on the regular menu but the bartender figured it out for them). We were there on a Saturday night, and enjoyed the dance party song mash up.

My family and I enjoyed a delicious brunch here. The mimosas were awesome, my husband really enjoyed the fried chicken waffle and my daughter inhaled the apple French toast. We will definitely recommend Pamplona to others and would love to return.

Great food great atmosphere and they really pay attention to every little detail about your experience. Even amidst a pandemic they’re making sure they follow all guidelines and are taking care of all guest requests as best possible. I made sure that I booked in advance a private booth to celebrate my mothers birthday which went with great success and is an experience she won’t forget anytime in the future. We had the chicken pallea out which was incredible scrumptious and delicious. The amount of spiciness tenderness and overall flavors within the rice and the chicken themselves make this amazing . Nobility to get a cheeseboard with Spanish chorizo and Spanish ham is something everybody should have. If you’re into lunchable‘s this is going to be amazing charcuterie board to wet your appetite. The atmosphere itself is filled with music openness and if you’re there with great weather it’s a great scene to be at. Overall this has high marks for cost taste experience and value you’ll deafly want to come here multiple times over especially during the summer

We felt completely neglected. It took almost 30 minutes before we had our food order. 15 minutes later after our first round of food came out, we were told it was last call for food. They kept saying they didn’t have any pitchers is why we never had drinks on our table. I’ve been for dinner in the past and it was fabulous. Brunch however... I would not recommend and makes me not want to go back for dinner.

Had the bottomless brunch here for a group of 19. They were very accommodating in regards to seating / arranging our large group. The reason why I’m only giving it 2 stars is because I was very disappointed in their slow service! Between our two tables everyone only received 2 (maybe 3 at most) of the orders placed. For a place that offers bottomless brunch at a hefty price of $40 this is unacceptable. I spoke with our server (who was very pleasant throughout the experience) but nothing changed in terms of getting more food out. Would not recommend this place for a party larger than 5

The best deal is a taste of Spain which allows you a one-time charge of $38 for as many small plate topas as you would like. that is a per person cost. The food was good the best now. but good. The meatballs were mediocre the shrimp was tasty the pork belly and vegetables was delicious they didn't have decaf coffee to go with the dessert which was my favorite part of the whole meal it was a churros Sunday
