Pampas Palo Alto

The spirit of Brazil meets luxury and extravagance at Pampas in the heart of downtown Palo Alto. Here, the authenticity of the Brazilian churrasco comes to a modern dining emporium where impromptu gatherings, romantic rendezvous’ and large corporate events feel at home. On the plate, smoke meets spice, rusticity finds sophistication, tradition is re-imagined. Simply prepared meats are spit roasted to juicy perfection and sliced tableside without limit. Sample the array alongside one of our mixologist’s freshly muddled seasonal cocktails or a choice vintage selected by our sommelier. Take in the side bar, brimming with seasonal vegetables, fresh salads and artisan cheese; and watch our servers round the room with simply prepared meats, spit roasted to juicy perfection and sliced tableside without limit. At Pampas, we invite you to sit back, indulge and watch. Every meal is a show.

"The restaurant was very nice as well as most of the employees. However, my husband and I went for our Wedding Anniversary (which I noted in my online reservation) and expected an area where 2 people can sit if they want a more quiet, romantic setting. However, we got the exact opposite. We were placed in a very bright and open area at a table with 4 seats, across from a large group of people. We had to sit next to each other facing forward just to be able to have a conversation. If you are looking to have a nice romantic dinner, you may not want to come here. The food was flavorful and the prices aren't bad but our seating was not right for the occasion and to top it off the person cutting our meat on skewers wasn't very friend, never smiled. Overall I don't know if I'll be back."

"The waitress, waiters, and busboys were very friendly and helpful. However, the hostess, actually both of them were not friendly at all. They never even smiled. In a service industry, that is the minimum of what I would expect employees when greeting the customers. The hostesses provide the first impression in any given restaurant. It is hard to understand why a high-end restaurant would have hostesses described above representing them. They need to be re-trained or replaced."

"Pampas is a great option for carnivores looking to try a few different cuts. They do have a regular menu for those that can't or won't go for the rodizio.
The rodizio comes with a full salad / food bar with over 40 items. I was well-behaved and stuck mostly to the green stuff. However I couldn't pass up the chance to try the cheese rolls and fried bananas they bring to the table to start with.
My favorite rodizio items were the NY steak, the top sirloin, the spicy chicken wings, and the chicken hearts. Our waiter was very attentive and made sure to ask if there were any specific meats that we wanted to try.
Did try some cocktails (the pisco sour was excellent) but had to skip dessert (our dessert was extra chicken hearts!). Pampas has great food and ambiance and it's a good choice for a special occassion"

"My family and I had a wonderful experience at Pampas again. We had young children as well and it was perfect for them too. The service was on point and no flaw at all. The side bar was good but could be better as some of the offerings were not in season which made it bland. The meat was consistent and the grilled pineapple is always a favorite. Thank you for having interesting non-alcoholic options."

"Last year, I had the chance to visit one of better Sao Paulo churrascaria and it definitely was a highlight of my trip, so I when I learned this restaurant existed in the Peninsula, I was very excited to go and see how it compared. From a food quality, selection, and quantity perspective, this place definitely was definitely comparable. Both from the perspective of the meats and the salad bar, so from a food perspective it definitely was great. and highly recommended.
What was disappointing was the service, in Brazil I can say there was a continuous flow of all the different types of meats and the servers were all very good at explain how they were prepaid. Here, I will say not only did I have to wait multiple times for food, but also had to request specific dishes to be delivered and the servers in general only mentions the cut of meat they were delivering and not how it was prepared. Now if you asked for things they were very politte and responsive, so I don't want to call it bad service. But I think for a premium restaurant, it is reasonable to expect better.
Personally, I think this place is a little overpriced because this is not the place to for the best quality of meat, but rather for getting a nice selection of meats that are well prepared and seasoned. For example, the best dishes for me was the chicken legs, turkey wrapped in bacon, and skirt steak. But since this is a buffet where you could only eat tenderloin and they definitely don't skimp on providing you the tenderloin cuts, I do think the pricing is not unreasonable either for what you get."

"We took our 20 year old son and 4 of his friends for his birthday knowing this group of guys loved steak. We frequently requested them to bring food by but it was slow and infrequent. Perhaps because we were seated downstairs? Not sure. Everything was tasty and we had fun."

"I haven't been to Pampas for a few years, but when family requested "meat" of good quality for our post-Christmas meal, we opted for dinner here.
Very pleased with:
-a made a note for a conveniently located table as I had a senior citizen w limited mobility- we had a great spot
-lamb was my favorite and there was PLENTY
-sirloin was my brother's favorite - delicious, moist, flavorful
-Malbec was lovely
-grilled pineapple was great
-lobster tail entree for our sole non meat eating diner was delicious
-buffet, I usually loathe buffets but the quality and variety of the side offerings were excellent!
Felt like a great value and everyone enjoyed our visit very much. Will be back.
