    Love that you can get a three beer flight and sample a few of the beers on tap. Food is always good. This trip we had the Fig and Lettuce wrap, the quail, and the seared tuna. All were great!

    We gad a party of 4 celebrating a birthday. We started with drinks, this us primarily a beer place but they have some decent wines. We split between beer and rosé. Two of us ordered Rose as it pairs we'll with many foods. The beer list is comprehensive and you should ask for help if your not sure. Appitizers we're amazing, our group shared 3 apps and that was perfect. Next we ordered 3 main courses, again amazing and delisious. Service was attentive. We'll done

    My friend and I tried sweetbreads for the first time and they were delicious. The menu is creative and the food is delicious. Some gastropubs come off as pretentious, but not this one. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. I will definitely come here again.

    Campbell has grown into a very nice downtown for local dinners and Liquid Bread is a brilliant addition. The eclectic fair the quality of the ingredients and the touch of Burke genius make this foodie pleasantly willing to revisit time after time. I am health oriented so eat very little meat but on recommendation had the burger (quite the decision actually) and I will say it was the best piece of meat the ole tastebuds have encountered, perhaps ever. The wine and beer list offers such a good blending of offerings for any request and represents a world wide palate. Cheers and Cheers

    Yet another perfect evening at this great restaurant: kale salad, sweetbreads, corn/crab chowder, chicken/waffles and mussels. Our server, Jeannette, made perfect recommendations for beer and helped make the evening special. There is a reason we keep coming back here: it never fails to impress.

    The combination of foods, tastes and flavors is amazing what the chefs come up with at Liquid Bread. It never ceases to amaze me what new dishes they come up with such as their halibut cheeks over a bean puree. But several dishes that have survived for awhile I hope stick around for a long spell such as their warm garden salad. Beer and wine list is extensive and so fun to see in such a small space.

    Came for my third visit (loved the 1st two) and saw the new menu. Looked excellent so we tried 4 different dishes. Kale was ok (is Kale every excellent?) but the special oysters we're hands down the best I've ever had. The odon bowl with fish - out of this world and who would of thunk my burger was better than any other burger with a 20 mile radius. This new menu is really good. Thanks LBG.

    Heard great things and finally got to try it out. Did NOT disappoint. The beer list is arguably the best I've seen in the South Bay. And the food was incredible. Melon salad and chicken and waffles still have me drooling. I wish I could remember our servers name because he paced out food perfectly. I don't have a bad thing to say.

    The beer list is just amazing. So many interesting ones to try! The food is really a cut above. The negative: it has the look and vibe of a brewpub, yet the menu and prices of a specialty restaurant. They would do better offering small plates and more appetizers to go with their beer selection. The burger should be offered as sliders, etc. The steak bites were great, the fingerling potatoes should be on the appetizer menu! They were amazing!! The restaurant has the potential of being a fun go-to place with a touch of class and really flavorful food!

    This was my second visit in a week after a first excellent meal on the front patio. I'd hesitated to go before now due to mixed reviews. The food is very tasty and the drinks are good. Service was slow this visit. I think we had to wait 20 minutes for our beers with no explanation. Food came out faster but then later our waiter was not around again so we didn't order anything more. It got pretty loud inside as our meal wound up. I'd go back again.

    This was not our first visit to Liquid Bread - we've been fairly regular customers since it first opened. I cannot speak highly enough of this place. From the impeccable rotating beer selection with the best microbrews from around the country and beyond, to the perfectly executed cuisine, Liquid Bread never disappoints. The owners are really nice and very involved and the servers are well-versed in the both food and drink and always incredibly helpful. Their piece de resistance as far as food goes is the mussels dish - this is one of their constants on the menu for good reason! I've never had anything that comes close to this. Pure umami.

    Liquid Bread provides a diverse set of craft beers for the beer aficionado and some very unique entrees that you won't find in many eateries. They have a set of patio tables which provide a really nice setting for hanging out and watching the people go by, and were kind enough to accommodate my dog. I entertained 2 colleagues coming in from both Japan and South Korea and they loved it.

    The service was incredibly good. My 38 Northchicken was PERFECTLY prepared. My husband raved over the corn soup with huge chunks of crab meat & his scallops appetizer. I loved the flavor combination of kale, cherries, onion emulsion, jicama and goat cheese. However, kale stalks are way too chewy, even grilled. I didn't finish the kale because of that. Suggest that the leaves be stripped from the stalk and the dish be made with only the leafy part. But the flavor profile was wonderful. Nearly all of the dishes were made with seeds/nuts, which I can not eat, including berries. That's common today but it makes dining out difficult at fusion restaurants. Still, this was a winner.

Beer, starters and main courses were all great, and served in a professional and very friendly way by Corey. This place does not disappoint.

    There are lots of good places in Campbell. While the food is good, it seems like they have lost something in their kitchen and what was once awesome, was now an overpriced decent Burger and the service is horrid! This was the first time in years that it was a struggle to justify even a 10% tip (I almost left none). I feel bad since my previous experience was so good and I have even referred a number of people there. Oh Well!

    Opening caveats, we only tried a few dishes so please take that into account. The rating is also based on the Pub. Wanted to rate this higher going in. Menu reads very well. Wait staff were extremely knowledgeable about the beers they were pouring as well as the menu itself. Friendly, efficient, professional. Kudos on this. Beer selection is very good. Not as big as some Gastro-pubs but bigger doesn't always mean better. A good variety. The option for a mini tasting is available. Food was good but somehow unmemorable. But this could partially be due to the beers we were drinking. More thought on my part would have changed the outcome.

    I've been to liquid bread several times now, and the experience is consistently excellent. The food is outstanding, and the beer selection is hard to top. The combination of flavors in the pork belly appetizer is incomparable- savory, citrusy and the crunch of the jicama, so good! The service was a bit slow, but not unforgivably so. It tends to be quite noisy, especially with a sports game on the tv. But I cannot recommend liquid bread enough- one of my favorite spots in Campbell!

    This place has an eclectic beer selection that my dad really enjoyed exploring on his birthday. Thankfully the server was totally informed on how the beers were made and could keep up in the discussion with my dad. The appetizers are small plates so we tried a few, and shared entres. Appetizers musts: Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, pork belly Entree musts: their spin on chicken & waffle was really really good, and the burger was amazing Skip: mussels entree, and the scallops appetizer

    We wanted to try Liquid Bread for a while now but it has been crowded when we walked by in downtown Campbell. We finally made reservations for this small but always crowded restaurant and we were glad that we did. The list of draft beers was about a page long. We found a beer we liked from past trips to New Orleans. The bar is at the front facing the street with the dining area inside and small area outside. The noise level was moderate. The food was very good. The menu is full of unique combinations of ingredients that really work well together. We tried tasting each other’s dishes and everything was very good. We want to return to try different menu items and different beers.

    If I am going to spend a lot of money for food and drink then I think there should at least be some atmosphere to go along with it. Every one in the place wore plaid and jeans, yet the least expensive glass of wine was $15. The food was intricate and good but the atmosphere was lacking.

    We've been to Liquid Bread a number of times and the go to dishes for us are the Chicken and Waffles and the Rabbit Meatballs with Okra. This time we tried the Braised Goat Pasta and the Donuts with Purple Yam purée. The Braised Goat Pasta was abit on the spicy side so you may was to ask for abit more goat cheese to help cool things off. The Donuts with Purple Yam Purée was outstanding. Still thinking about it. And it goes without saying that one of the main reasons for heading to Liquid Bread are the beers.
