Diner Reviews
  • "My friend & I had dinner here recently for the 1st time. We had no expectations but had heard that it was good. We had a wonderful evening. The wine was good, the food delicious & the wait staff were all very friendly, helpful & provided excellent service. When we arrived, we entered through the bar & it was full of people having a good time. Looks like a fun place, not sure if they have happy hour specials. We will definitely return with family & friends & have already told several people about our great experience here & recommended that they try it."

  • "We all enjoyed our food. The appetizers in particular were great. Not too many vegetarian options, but they are accommodating. The waiters were overly friendly for our tastes. Lots of touching of shoulders and the like. It's a bit out of the way for us, so I don't know how often we will return, but it was nice for the evening."

  • "Great restaurant for a town that isn't known for many good places to eat. Awesome food and service. The pork belly flatbread is to die for!"

  • "We have been to Bellamy's many times and have never been disappointed. Everything is consistently superb! The wait staff is attentive and the food is a notch above any other restaurant. Don't miss a chance to enjoy this special jewel in Escondido. We can't wait to return!"

  • "This restaurant gives new hope for Escondido's return to a place enjoy and return to again and again. A short walk from the California Center for the Arts, Bellamy's is an excellent start or finish to an evening of arts and entertainment. It is a good fit for foodies or bar flies; romance or birthdays. It sets a standard that makes it worthy competition for other restaurants more well known."

  • "We saw an article in San Diego Home and Garden about this place and decided to check it out. Our expectations were not high but we were blown away - the experience was awesome. The food, the service and variety of wines offered were all excellent. Yes, it's a bit loud but not uncomfortably loud. The butternut squash soup was amazing. We had the scallops and the bacon wrapped monkfish and both were very good. The Tempranillo wine was a real find and not common on many wine lists. This is now on the lists of our favorite places!"

  • "Had a client dinner here and we were provided with the back room -- nice and private where we could talk freely. None of us had eaten here before and without exception, loved everything from the seafood main courses, Jidori chicken, unique handmade chocolates dessert and the wonderful roasted brussel sprouts appetizer (we ordered more). Friendly and attentive servers. Have nothing but good things to report and we will return again."

  • "Our first time there, the service was excellent , very attentive. I had the lamb shank the best I ever had, it was so tender. The presentation was very good and very eye appealing. I want to try all their dishes they all look so good. The noise level wasn't to bad most small places are very noisy.I am a hairstylist and my husband is a realtor we live in the area and We will definitely recommend this place it is a jewel."

  • "We decided to try Bellamy's with another couple since Bellamy's is in the Passport Unlimited restaurant group. The food is delicious with great presentation. The service is superb. I had the white bean soup and the pork cheeks dinner. My wife had a salad and the scallop dinner. We were amazed. Prices are steep, charging $14 for my wife's salad and $12 for my bean soup, and $25 and up for dinners, but we received one $27 dinner for free with the Passport Unlimited card. We will definitely return for a special night out."

  • "Called spur of the moment and wanted a nice dinner. Food was great! Beet salad and beet sorbet were quality, ink squid with risotto was fine, shaved veggie salad was great. Sea bass and scallops were the two entrees and both were perfectly cooked and delicious. Spent time with Trevor the manager for a wine pairing and the selections were perfectly matched with the various foods. Service was quite good. A very pleasant experience overall. Yes, I would go again."

  • "We went for Valentine's Day and the cauliflower puree topped with salmon tartare was one of the best things I've ever had in a shot glass and that is saying a lot. Xavier and Beau were attentive and the night was a success. We'll definitely be back."

  • "Food, wine list, service, and ambiance exemplary. Worth the scenic drive from Rancho Santa Fe. The staff go to extra effort to see that you are happy with everything. Feels very special."

  • "This was the second time we visited Bellamy's. I'm happy to say the first time wasn't a fluke! The food was inspired and excellent. The artichoke soup was outstanding. Both fish dishes were flavorful and well presented. Service was attentive. We will return again and again to see what the chef has cooked up. GO!"

  • "We were a party of 3 and each of us had one of the weekend specials...they were all 3 amazing. My husband had the beef short ribs which were rich, robust and beautifully presented. Our guest had the tableside sole which she loved. I had the most perfectly cooked lamb chop with white beans that was just as wonderful as my favorite...cassoulet. It was a lovely surprise. No one can beat Xavier as a server and the entire Bellamy's staff is absolutly top of the line. It is so nice to be greeted and served as a real guest and not a customer....I wish more places were like that."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We had a new waitress that was a little nervous however she was very friendly and we are not picky at all. Overall the food was very good. I ordered one of the specials of the night (Braised Short Ribs) and the sauce was incredible. As I got into the meal, the meat was very cold in the center however the waiter promptly took care of it and comp'ed us desert. I don't want to detract from the restaurant as their service more than saved the experience. Everyone was extremely friendly and courteous."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Perhaps it was Sat of Valentine's weekend, but the combination of essentially a full house, tables way too close to each other, and a couple boisterous groups made for a noise level throughout that was typical of a sports bar on Fri. night at happy hour. Too bad, the service was great, and the food memorable, but the noise so badly detracted from the experience that I doubt if we will be willing to risk ruining another fine dining experience."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I give this evening an Outstanding experience because of the food. Five stars to the chef ( who we loved when he was at El Bizcocho at the RB Inn ). Our service was just okay. This is not our first time at Bellamy's, but there is one waiter who is very good ( goatee, looks Hawaiian). Overall, it was a 5."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Incredible food find with unsurpassed service. Comfortable and not at all stuffy. The food changes with seasons and is always fresh and locally sourced. We've been here numerous times and its really starting to become the hot ticket in SD."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Valentines Day is the hardest day of the year to excel in the restaurant business. The experienced kitchen staff did a superb job with a full house and 3 seating's. My wife had an excellent sea bass and I had a fine rendition of rack of lamb. My tuna tartar appetizer was wonderful. My wife's mushroom ravioli was tasty but a bit heavy. They made a romantic holiday even better handing out roses to all the female guests. The service was well trained and attentive. We can't wait to go back and try the place on a quieter night."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Whether for dinner after a concert or for a special occasion Bellamy's Restaurant is a treat! For a relaxed dinner suggest back room. Our server was great, wait staff helpful but not intrusive and wine pairings outstanding. Good choice in Escondido."

  • "We have been coming to Bellamy's since they first opened. They continue to delight us with the menu and service! We feel like welcomed family. They know our namkes, drink and wine preferences, it's like coming home! The food is always amazing! Chef is very creative and the quality is superb! We definitely recommend this gem to everyone!"

  • "Came in with 2 out of town seniors who, at my suggestion the night before, dined at Vintana's. Having been in the car business before, they were blown away with the entire "experience"....both visual and culinary. Bellamy's chefs, in my opinion, can do cart-wheels around Vintana's Debra Scott...and they did so for all 4 of us. The entree presentations were incredible & the flavor & creativenss of the dishes matched. Bravo! The Sea Bass special was wonderful. The flavor & presentation of the pork cheeks almost made me wish I had ordered it....and the Salmon portion, preparationa & presentation was rewarded with empty plates. Only thing missing in the dining room is "personality". Decor is drab and "blah" and needs a decorator's touch."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Food was great, house wines were very good. We ordered the Cab & the Pinot Noir, Service was a bit slow but it was Saturday night. We were sitting in the front & the door kept getting stuck open. It was cold night so a bit uncomfortable."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We live no where near Escondido, yet Bellamy's is well worth the drive. Our group of four shared every dish so that we could get a broad swipe of their solid menu. For starters we enjoyed the brussels sprouts, but loved the mushroom ravioli as we as the mushroom flatbread. We ordered two flavorful soups and an exceptional endive salad. The chicken and rock fish special were standouts, yet we agreed we would try something different than the lamb shank. We splurged and ordered four desserts that were exceptional. Bellamy's is a find. The décor in the back room where we dined was pedestrian, but the bar area (featuring a live piano) was a great spot for us to enjoy our dessert. We will return."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "The Service at Bellamy's is absolutely 1st class. The servers could not be more helpful or pleasant. The food is really good, fresh and from a kitchen that knows what they're doing. I think perhaps the menu could be a little more extensive. But what's there is great. Ambience is lacking and they need parking, but it's a wonderful dinner house."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "My husband and I really enjoy Bellam's and dine there often....especially when we like the weekend specials. For a beef/steak lover however, the weekend specials really don't augment the lack of beef selection on the regular menu which only has ribeye to offer.My husband asked if there was anything else in the kitchen a lovely, perfectly cooked fillet was provided. However, I thought the$50 entree only price (we had ordered appetizers separately) was a bit steep, especially since the rib eye on the regular menu was priced at $44. Other than that minor quibble all was great...you absolutely can NOT beat the service and genuine warmth of the atmosphere and Jim the pianist is well worth an adjournment to the lounge after dinner."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "We decided to try Bellamy's for my wife's birthday. It was perfect for a special occasion. The food was exceptional; delicious, sophisticated, and unique. We particularly enjoyed the duck, cod, and beignets. Only knock on Bellamys is that it is fairly pricey. We are very interested in trying their bar menu though which isn't as expensive."

  • "We treated a couple of friends for dinner at Bellamy's and dinner was great, service very attentive and non intrusive. Exec chef came to inquire about how satisfied we were, a nice touch . The food preparation and presentation is definitely above average, much better than what you'd find in any if the nouveau trendy restaurants offering boring me-too stuff. I definitely recommend Bellamy if you want extraordinary French style cuisine!"

  • "First, the mixed drinks were prepared perfectly and served in appropriate glasses/mugs. Beer tap list was not long, but good representatives of each type listed. For first course, try the mushroom ravioli...exceptionally hearty sauce and filling in delicate pasta. Entries had interesting variety of vegetable accompanyments. There are pleasant surprises everywhere, such as grapefruit sections on the creme brule. Excellent, attentive, wait staff. Noise level was relatively high, so I had to be very attentive to follow table conversation."

  • "While the food was fine, two of us found our food to be over salted. Steak was a little tough but overall fine."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "This place is definitely out to impress, but there is a fatal flaw amongst their impressive plates. However first I must compliment them on their starters. The beet salad and cauliflower soup were absolutely perfect. We had the iron steak and salmon. The steak itself and the risotto (in the salmon plate) were both well over seasoned (too salty). The rest of the plate's items were honestly delicious. I mean to come back if it's still too salty I intend to let them know, but in the meantime this place is definitely worth a drive."
