The food was very good, restaurant is clean, quiet , wonderful staff.
For the price , should be more selections of meat , too much beef.
Is a great place for a special occasion, not for a normal night out,is too expensive.

After all the good I had heard they didn’t live up to my expectations. The food was ok, the servers where ok. The Gouchos didn’t come around as often as we are used to at other Brazilian BBQs. We had to ask for some of the meats to come to the table as they never brought it around. I wouldn’t make a special trip downtown to go again.

Service was slow with large gaps between gauchos. Lamb was room temperature when served. $50 per person is a bit steep for a salad bar, a few warm sides that looked a bit worse for wear and intermittent meat delivery.

Wonderful food. Great service. Nice ambiance.

My literal only complaint is the restaurant is so narrow that while we were there traffic jams of people happened more than once, it’s easy to run into others and get run into yourself. The restaurant wasn’t packed or anything, either.

It was a great night out! The service was really great. I’d still consider it a bit pricey but overall it was worth it for a treat. I did miss the pineapple that you can get at some other Brazilian BBQ joints in town. I think I would still chose Bollero as my first choice of Brazilian BBQ

The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly. Once we turned our discs to green, the meat servers came immediately. The only issue was that they came very close together and we felt a bit rushed. I suppose that was our fault for not pacing ourselves. We felt if we said "no" to something that looked really good it might not be served again!
This was an expensive meal and we probably would not do it without the Groupon discount. But overall a pleasant experience.

When we arrived they found out that we made a reservation on a wrong location online, the guy in front asked us to make another reservation online, which was easy, I just wish that he just accommodate us on the spot because he said it's not busy anyway but other than that the service was great, the food selections was excellent, overall experienced was completely satisfied. For sure will reccomend it to our friends and coming back.

Ive been to several Brazilian steakhouses and this is one of my favs. Its not as commerical as some of the others ive been too and the sides are authentic enough to be unique but not too unique where the flavors may not be liked by all.

The service was really slow, we were celebrating our kids (twins) birthday and after the meals we wanted to order desserts for them and some drinks for us, we waited 15 minutes and the server never went to our table, not even to clean the table as we finished long time ago. Usually we give 20% tip when the service is good, and I do not think the tip should be included in the bill, when we were just 4 people and we did not have good service.

We tried Pampa for our first time but not our first Brazilian steak house. The salad bar was fine with decent selection and was reasonably fresh. The meat service was good although the sausage made it around most often and we did not see all 14 meat selections offered when we were seated. The portions were conservative and overall meat quality was ok but not fantastic. This brazilian steak house is average. Afterwards my wife did get a hige headache which is typical after she has MSG to eat. We didn’t expect this from here. Overall service was ok. The wait staff was attentive bit did not go the extra mile. Overall atmosphere in the restaurant was typical in a large setting so is not overly quaint if you are visiting for a special occasion.
