How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
My husband and I had a lovely time at Pampas Argentine Grill on March 27, 2009. The restaurant's location amidst an industrial park setting did not deter from the warmth and hospitality that was extended to us from the owner (Marco Hidalgo)the moment we walked in. The restaurant's unpretentious Argentinian decor provides for a comfortable and relaxed ambiance. The dinner show was performed by a talented couple who walked us through the history of the Tango from the 40's to present. They danced to about six songs and changed attire at least three times. It was not a stellar performance, but it was tastefully choreographed. Unfortunately, the audio system is poor and it took away from the performance. Regarding the food, we had the Parrilla. It was a nice and generous selection of Argentinian meats served with fries and a salad. The entire meal, which included an appetizer and dessert was an exceptional value. The wait staff was great. Andree was our waiter and did an exceptional job in waiting us, but most importantly, in making us feel welcomed and part of the "restaurant family". We will definetely return and try the chicken empanadas again as well as other dishes from their regular menu.
