Gaucho's For an Evening!

After not eating here for more than one year we decided to go back to Pampas Argentinas because we had grown tired of our regular haunts. We dined her two nights in a row a Friday and then Saturday evening. What we experienced on the Friday was confirmed on the Saturday visit. The service was warm... read more

The first time that my husband and I went to Pampa was two months ago. Yet we still remember the place thanks to the excellent food and friendly staff. Our waiter Carlos was very attentive and friendly, thumbs up for him. Def a place that worth visit

Brunch Menu is rather limited....BUT the meat for their Black Angus burgers is ground when it is ordered AND NOT BEFORE! The texture is unbelievable and so so moist

Food: delicious! Everything from the appetizer through to dessert was REALLY good. I had the avocado and shrimp salad, red snapper with mashed potatoes and veggies and the deluxe flan. Sangria was great as well, I got a good nights sleep ha Service: Friendly and very attentive. Michael was our waiter, cool guy :) Atmosphere: small intimate space, dimly lit... More

I just spent $65 for a meal that was tasteless. I've been to Argentine restaurants many of times. My friend and I decided to try this one. My skirt steak was tough in some spots and rubbery in others.The chimmichurri was not made right. You could not taste hardly anything in it--it was so bland. The potato salad (salad russa)... More

We had a family lunch here on Christmas Day and everyone loved the food. There were 11 of us and there was something for everyone, even the kids. Our favorites were the morcilla appetizers, the fresh grilled fish, pasta Alfredo and chorizo. It's a small restaurant and on the day we were there it was full of families. Nice service,... More

Based on previous reviews, my husband and I decided to try this place and we were disappointed. Really I would give the place a 2 1/2. The meat empanada was okay. The calamari seemed like it was bought frozen and very chewy. The skirt steak was okay but the shellfish paella was not at all seasoned and had way too... More

We stopped by tonight without a reservation. They were very busy, but made room for us. We ordered from the list of specials. For appetizers we ordered the aparagus special and the clams and mussels special . Both were excellent. For dinner, we shared a whole branzino with paprika and rosemary, superb. One of the best meals we've had in... More
