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 Moresophistication, 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.

  • Rating: 1.0 out of 5"by Katia N. at Yelp User Review4/6/2014Food was so gross. Salad bar had very limited options and the meat itself wasn't worth the money at all. I've heard Espetus is way better. One star for the restaurant decor. Food was definitely zero stars. More
