I got scallops for appetizer, shrimp for main course, and flan for dessert and ohh myy goodness was the whole thing good. The food is not very filling which makes it great because their Flan is to die for! I have to say the best part of their entree is the "side dish". When i got the shrimp it came with a salad like thing composed of corn, squash, snow peas, some kind of sweet potato.. and pieces of mango. I have to say that made the entree. My friend however didn't enjoy the meal as much because his chicken was too dry and his soup was too sweet but he said it was all worth it for the dessert. The flan definitely made it ALL worth it. And the prices are not bad. Those of you complaining about pricing are def. not native manhattanites!!!

We ordered the special lunch menu, and it was a great deal. The food and service were great. If you like spicy food, you will love their food. It was close to 90 degrees outside, and that's why we chose indoor, but the place was little too warm, and flies were everywhere. I don't exept it's always like that though. I would love to try the place for drinks soon.

I have never eaten such amazing dishes as swordfish dip, soft shell carb, and whole red snapper with cactus salad. Service was incredible attentive. yes, it is not cheap, but is definitely worth it.

My boss took me and some co-workers to this joint and we had a great time. The waiter was a cutie and the food (while the portions were small) was very good. Well made and the presentation was lovely. The drinks were small, but tasty too. The decor is reminicent of an old colonial Caribbean house with fans turning slowly and white pained shutters everywhere...the lighting is flattering to all. Final word: If someone else is paying, this place is great!

Went here for Valentines Day. It was a mistake. The total for 2 people was around 250 bucks. Pampano should not be able to command these kinds of prices. The service was poor, they brought out the wrong dish twice. The steak came to the table rare to medium rare so I had to send it back. The baby red snapper on the other hand was dry and over cooked. They did not ask us what we wanted for dessert. Not recommended.

I have been to Pampano several times. I was there last week for a leisurely lunch with my siblings. Everything we ordered was excellent. The smoked swordfish appetizer was fantastic. Portions are on the small side. Otherwise, this meal cemented my previous positive experiences at this restaurant.

This is an absolutely fabulous find - do not miss it. The Prix Frixe lunch menu is a bargain and the marqueritas are innovative and potent! We had the cerviche mahi; avocado soup, shrimp quesidillas and nothing could be improve upon. Our server was attentive without being intrusive and very accommodating. Do not miss it!
