First visit to celebrate our upcoming wedding. We ate mostly from the salad bar, as the meats weren't very tasty. Our 6 year old had no meat (didn't like it), and we still paid $40.00 for her meal. Will continue to attend boleros instead, for steak house dining.

This is the second time i write a bad review, and for the same reason. I was hoping to give Pampa another chance, but this is it. I’m not coming here anymore. Out of the 14 cuts of meat, there were probably 3 that were cooked right. They are always overcooked, or the cut isn’t good. Like my last review, we came to a common consensus everyone at the table, and this was the verdict. This is my last time here

The service was great.

We have dined at Gaucho’s a number of times and we found that Gaucho’s meat choices and flavours were superior. At Pampa’s the meat was dry, inconsistent in the cuts and not well seasoned.

If I was asked, I would recommend Gaucho’s over Pampa’s for sure.

The service was excellent. It was attentive but not bothering. The salad bar had everything we liked and the meat just kept coming! The tastes were great and the value was justified. We will be returning again and again and....

We were asked if we were able to get enough of everything and we mentioned we wanted a bit more of the bacon wrapped chicken and the shrimp. Minutes later both arrived. One at our dinner table requested the garlic beef to be well done, within 15 minutes well done garlic beef arrived.

We felt well taken care of I recommend Pampa’s to dining guests who like great service, great food and a great dining overall experience.

Great restaurant. We were the last diners for the day and though they cleaned up around us, they made certain that we were well fed and didn’t miss out of the offerings of the night. We really enjoyed the chicken wrapped in bacon. Simply divine!!!!!

We have been here multiple times, while the table service was good with drinks always being filled etc the meat was VERY slow! I mean like a good 10 minutes between each variation even after commenting to a couple of the meat servers and our table server that we weren't being looked after. It was busy and we were in a corner in the far end so when they did start working their way towards us they would run out of meat or would have to go back tp sear more of the outside to cook it.

The food is fantastic and there was nothing we did not like. It wasn't overly busy (Tues early evening) so the service was very good. Drinks and wine prices are on the pricey side. Great place for that special occasion and make sure you're hungry!

Great downtown location, nice clean contemporary atmosphere. It really is all about the BBQ though, thats why people come, for the great grilled meats and pineapple, oh and the cheese buns. Good refreshing selections at the salad bar. Drinks are quite expensive but service is always great.

Went for Sunday brunch. Great salad bar selection as well at meat selections. The pork belly was our favourite. Unfortunately it seemed like our server was too busy and we had to flag him down for most requests including additional water and removal of plates. We were super full after the meal and definitely worth the costs.

My husband and I tried the Sunday brunch and enjoyed the experience overall. Friendly service and atmosphere and tasty eats. For me it was perhaps too much meat for 11am and if i did it again would schedule a later brunch. Worth trying for sure.

Food was great, our first round of meat you could tell it wasn't quite as fresh but the rest was served right off the grill and was very flavourful. It was clear that there was only one waitress on, we waited quite a bit of time for our first round of drinks and service. I am to assume this is because Stampede was on and it was a Sunday. Overall we were pretty impressed and will be back. Oh, and the salad bar and cheese buns are amazing.

We enjoyed the salad bar and the seasonal specials, especially the roasted cinnamon pineapples and the beef ribs. The bacon wrapped chicken was also very good, the rump steak was tasty, and the lamb and shrimps were acceptable. However, the cheese rolls were cold, the parmesan pork was dry, the tri-tip was overcooked and tough, and the cream of potato soup was way too salty. Moreover, they no longer make exceptions for big groups to use more than one Groupon per table.

I have local restaurants that I frequent once a week on average, that are of much better value. $8.00 at Pampa for a bottle of domestic beer is a bit greedy. My tab was $120 for two, with 1 beer and 1 glass of wine. My local restaurant's tab averages half that. I'd return to Pampa if the value was there. The reason we tried Pampa was $100 worth of gift cards my wife was given.

The food was decent, enjoyed the salad bar and the roasted pineapple. Our waiter and the staff who brought the skewers of meat were all extremely attentive band was always bringing over the cuts of meat that we liked. The reason for a 3 star rating of their service is because the person who was at the front was downright abrupt and rude. Upon arrival, I indicated my name and time of reservation (we were on time). His tone was nothing but disdain, as he curtly informed me that since I made my reservation online very last minute (about 30 minutes before my arrival), that I would not be allowed to use any groupons- I did not even have any groupons nor did I mention it so I am confused as to why he was so confrontational about it. No “hi, welcome to Pampas”. Far from a friendly greeting one would expect. Not sure what the problem is with booking online last minute. The restaurant was not even half full and if the restaurant could not accommodate us last minute, they should have taken their booking system offline that day. The initial encounter had left me with a bad taste in my mouth for the rest of the meal that was only remedied by their roasted pineapple.
