The meat tastes good - It’s flavourful and tender. If you are only there for the meat, it’s pretty great and at 50$ a person I’d rather come here then go to a steakhouse where I get one steak from one kind of animal. Just make sure to not get a table next to a large group - too often they’d go to them first with a vibrant, fresh skewer and then they’d come with the leftovers to our table trying to auction off the middle chunk of what was a roast or only enough for one of us but not both.

Having been to a few restaurants coined Brazilian steakhouses, Mina’s, Bolero’s and Gaucho, I must say the “50 plus item” and “one of a kind salad bar” was not all it was pumped up to be. Other restaurants have stews and salads and charcuterie and Brazilian inspired unique-eats, whereas Pampa’s (yes) has some soup like container, but the limp lettuce and spinach salad bar was inadequate for what you’re paying.

Maybe they take better care of it on busy weekends but we went on a Tuesday and I wouldn’t go back based on that sadly. When other restaurants have more stacked food bars and a larger list of meats and other skewers (like glazed pineapple and roasted veggies and 20+ meat options at boleros) Pampa’s meat might taste slightly better but at the cost I’d hope for more.

We have been going to pampa since they opened and this is the first time we have ever been upset about the food we love our steak medium rare and 7 times we requested medium rare and not once did they bring medium rare everytime it was medium well to well done. We finally asked the server if he could get us medium rare and it still came out as well done. We are not ones to complain and we have been long time
Loyal pampa customers and overall were very upset and surprised by the quality of meat when we were there and the fact that the people bringing the meat around look at us as if they had no idea what we meant when asking
For medium rare. This last experience will unfortunately make us think twice About the next time we are going to go spend the money that we do here for dinner.

I've been here a few times and it's been great in the past,however, this time the servcice was too slow.
It took about 10 minutes without any meat coming. Probably because we are seated at the back end of the restaurant.

Amazing food and service. The kitchen staff was great with my 11 year old nephew. Kept coming to the table asking if he wanted more and they would bring his favourite meat out for him. So much selection on the salad bar and tasted delicious.

I went to Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse for lunch Friday March 22 2019,
The restaurant was clean and inviting.
The salads bar was very nicely setup and choices are very balanced for all tastes.
But I didn’t come for salad 😀 the Radizio was very nicely mixed the protein choices were great, sausage was the only thing which was t my personal taste but very good food and service.

Good food and restaurant. Service fine, but it would have been nice to have a salad bar explanation, in the sense of the sauces for meats, etc. The rest of the salad bar is somewhat explanatory, but we totally missed this aspect of the food experience.

The Goucho's are so friendly and attentive to your interests that you rarely have to look for them, they appear when you are ready for more. Rare to well done they make it right! We have been to all lunch, brunch and dinner and all have been excellent. You get more than you expect so bring your heartiest appetite.

We’ve been there multiple times and it’s always excellent. Last night we seemed to wait longer than usual for a Pampa to come over. Our cards were on green, we had our drinks and had been to the salad bar and eaten our sides without seeing a Pampa. My husband had made a second trip to the salad bar before the first one came over. We realized after 30 minutes and only 2 meats that there was actually only one of them that was coming to our table. My husband mentioned this to him, he apologized and said he’d be sure to get us the offering. He was excellent, cheerful, attentive and even asked if there was anything specific we liked. Unfortunately this morning I realized that we were not offered the feature rib steak, which I would have loved to try.

Overall the night was nice, the waiter was quick to great us and get our refills. The one Pampa was excellent and another finally came at the very end of our meal. It wasn’t our best experience there but we back.

This was my first time here and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The meat was tender and wasn’t overly salty. It was also hot when it was delivered to our table. The buffet had a huge selection and had the best Caesar dressing I have had in a long time. I will be back for sure!
