I attended this event with 3 friends, and we had a terriffic time! It was definitely worth the Goldstar price. The dancers were great and very friendly too. The 'show' was a bit different than I expected... it consisted of several small numbers that lasted a few minutes at a time. The dancers would change costumes in between numbers, as the audience dined. The dancers were terriffic and overall the food was very good. I have rated this event a 3 star, but would have rated it a '4 star' except for a few things to note....
1) One friend needed to have her meal returned at least 3 times to try and get the steak cooked to her liking
2) The service was slow... but they were understaffed in the kitchen that night
3) The dance floor was very small, which somewhat limited the 'show' but the dancers made up for it by using more of the room and getting the audience involved.
I do want to state that the restaurant staff was extremely accomodating and very courteous. Without any complaint from us regarding the slow service, the host came to our table to explain the short staffing and offered us a complimentary pitcher of sangria to make up for the wait... we gratefully accepted and it was very good! Also, the staff did bring out a fresh side plate for the friend who had her steak re-cooked a few times. And they invited us to stay for the second show, since our meal was late... and we enjoyed the second show even more. It seems the second audience was more lively and everyone got more into the show, with much more audience participation in the dancing.
All the food we tried was quite delicious.... we had 2 surf and turfs, 2 ribeyes, garlic mashed potatoes, argentine fries (loved these!), beef empanadas, flan, chocolate cake, and the dulce de leche cheesecake. Everything was terriffic and the ribeye steak was a very generous size (try it with the chimichurri mixture on top... tasty!!).
I would definitely return to this restaurant. The exceptions noted above were a very small part of the evening and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves thanks to the delicous food, friendly and accomodating staff, and the very talented entertainment! In fact, I plan to return with some family members for a future show!
Pampas Argentine Grill presents Camille and Michael, founders of Positive Energy Dance. After years of practice, these dancers display a true connection to the rhythm as they ignite the dance floor with their hot salsa and merengue moves. Come and enjoy dinner, perhaps even a Cuban Mojito, as you are engulfed by this sexy and melodic rhythm.
