Diner Reviews
  • "Quaint neighborhood restaurant with amazing beer selection. Portions are sizable if you're Barbie. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "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."

  • "For a pub, I don't usually have a high expectation for food. This place definitely is an exception to that!! Waitress was very helpful and friendly in recommending beer and food. I've shared photos of this place with a couple of friends. Definitely will be coming back, and sooooooooon!"

  • "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."

  • "This place is outstanding - I am not much of a beer drinker, so I go with the recommendations - plenty of interesting micro brews and food is always top notch... the only bad thing - is trying to get a table on short notice. Don't hesitate - its worth the wait and the prices are fairly reasonable - definitely not a romantic date night kind of place but if you want great food/beer and service... its hard to miss."

  • "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"

  • "The food was delicious, and the beer menu was fun to explore. We were there for my husband's birthday."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "Two of us ordered dinner at Liquid Bread and had wonderful cooking that keeps the standards high in the Bay Area. Seascape Cheddar Cheese is mild and flavorful, pate very luxurious and satisfying. Chicken and waffles is a generous-sized serving of a moist, flavorful, tender chicken breast - more than the average person can eat in one sitting. The burger is still the star of the menu for me, served with tender fingerling potatos. The burger has wonderful layers of flavor and is shamelessly juicy and moist - so indulgent. The bechamel sauce, cheese, fresh bun all pull it together to make for an outstanding example of the American classic."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "The food was very good. Great mixtures of flavors and textures. However, it was very crowded seating and noisy. The service was just OK. Tab for four with 2 beers and ice tea was $240 with tip."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "My dining companion and I shared the scallops, pork belly and the bavette steak. Each of the entrees were excellent choices, well prepared and very tasty. I'm looking forward to visiting again to try more dishes. Our waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu offerings, she checked back with us often and even engaged in light conversation. I did not have any of their beers but they appear to have a decent selection. I instead had their raspberry cider which I liked very much. Liquid Bread Gastropub is an ideal location if your looking for a casual place where you can have great food and hold dinner conversation without having to compete with a boistrous social scene or music."

  • "The mushroom appetizer, and the hamburger and chicken/waffles for main course were each perfect. And the beer's recommended by Colleen were perfect. Worth the visit, for sure!!!"

  • "I had booked for our anniversary. It was a Friday and traffic sucked getting home. I was late and we rang to tell them and got there. They still got us in and so worth it. Service was outstanding. Had the sweetest most earnest waitress who made sure I knew the portion size, way fish would be cooked. The beers are outstanding and the food is even better. The chefs bring a love to the food that can be tasted in every amazing morsel. Some dishes are better than others true but it changes menu up frequently so always fun trying latest. My only area I would say is they need a mini platter dessert as it all looked good. Wish this place every success. There's a lot of love and passion in their food and beers and it shows."

  • "Great group dinner at Liquid Bread. We sat near the kitchen which was cool because we could see all the food that was being served. Being in a bigger group was even better because we ordered a lot of different items and shared. Loved the beer sampler. We all enjoyed this cool spot to eat."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "this place was so-so. a lot of hype associated with it. my wife and I like diners, big portions and fast service (think Black Bear), but this was more high end, high prices and a teeny tiny bit of food. We spent $90 between the two of us. I had ONE beer, she had ONE glass of sparkling wine, we shared an appetizer (a small plate of three pieces of pork belly that were each half the size of a business card), I had the fish and she had a seafood & chorizo stew. $90 AMERICAN DOLLARS. A hip place for hip hipsters. Elegant, clean and good beer, but won't be coming back."

  • "Dined there last weekend and the food is absolutely amazing! My friend and I shared both the pork belly (the best I think I've ever had!), and their signature burger, which was truly decadent. The bun perfectly toasted, the burger cooked to perfection, and the bearnaise sauce addition made what was already a good burger, a great burger! If you go, you HAVE to get the burger. You won't find anything like it anywhere else. Our server was very nice and helpful on choosing a beer from the vast menu of options. Definitely need to make a reservation. The place is pretty small."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Every time we come here for a bite and a drink we end up having a three course meal. The menu seems simple but the flavors are very fresh and creative. My favorite part of dinning here is to experience the science of textures with every single bite. After five times of coming here I finally tried the burger and I must say, it is all that they praise about and then some. Oh! And they have beers, good beers, lots of good beers... Need to say more?"

  • "Little tough to find in the pouring rain, this place is worth the effort. 4 of us dined, and almost everything we had was stellar. Our waiter allowed a couple of small tastes to the unsure, and this resulted in 3 great beers and a very nice glass of wine. The Kale salads were great, but the pork belly was DIVINE. (Guess which one I ordered!) The hamburger lived up to it's billing, the Chef's garden was a delicious as our server promised, the chicken and waffles were good (the chicken EXCELLENT) and the scallops wonderful. Great food all around, we were stuffed. We should have stopped there. Our dessert was the pumpkin 2 ways, and it was a bit disappointing. the pastry was tough and difficult to chew, and the pudding relatively bland."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Great beers on tap and in bottles. Good food, had the braised ribs. Service could be better, gap between drinks was too much. Had to ask for more drinks or refills"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Tall tables in a small-ish space. Great food with an good beer list instead of a wide wine list (though they still have wine options). Octopus mussels chorizo dish was amazing. About 20 beers on table, wait staff happy to offer a taste if you're not sure what you want. Bottle list too, and bottles to go."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "We went for the food, not being serious beer drinkers, and ended up loving both the food and beer. Server Corey did a great job with beer recommendations..wow! Do not miss the pork belly and the mussels! This place is great for a fun, friendly night out with amazing food and beer!!!!!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Beer selection is really good, so many to choose from. Food was superb but their service could be improved. Once we recd our meals, no one checked up on us to see how were doing. It was a busy night, but still. Great place however and would go again"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "And the beer selection is outstanding. The room is a bit cramped and loud but that won't deter me from going back."

  • "With items like squid ink spaghetti, pork belly, and the most amazing burger you can sink your teeth into, its really hard not to enjoy your time at Liquid Bread. Downtown Campbell's food scene is really starting to step its game up and players like Liquid Bread really raise the bar on what to serve sophisticated pallets. I for one am so ecstatic that these talented guys decided to set up shop in my backyard because they satisfy what I felt was a big void in the south bay's food culture. No fuss, casual dining serving gorgeous, sophisticated, delicious dishes. I really hope they are here to stay!"

  • "Most importantly, from the Starters all the way through the desert, each dish was prepared perfectly. The kitchen crew works magic with food. The atmosphere is casual and a great place to hang out for a good conversation over a leisurely meal. The staff was very attentive and smoothly handled any tag team coverage that may be needed. This was a very positive dining experience."

  • "Everything was right on. Food, beer, service, ambience, price. Perfect. That Gearbox Red Ale is good. Also the Celery Root soup was delicious."

  • "If you have looked at the reviews, this one cannot add much more. Very good food (Burger, Goat Pasta, Scallop small plate) and a staff that knows the beers and can help with the pairings. A very nice evening."

  • "we've been to Liquid Bread a couple times and it is always delicious. they regularly change out the beers they serve and offer a good selection. I love doing flights to sample some new brews. Only "complaint" is that there are very few options for vegetarians. i think i've ended up ordering the same thing a couple times because its my only choice unless i want a salad. that said, the food is delicious."

  • "It is clear from the first words on the menu the folks here are passionate and excited about Liquid Bread. And it is obvious from the first bite they have succeeded in delivering interesting and excellent "mastications." We had the grilled kale and pomegranate salad and the warm chef's garden vegetable salad as starters. Very different but both really good. And we followed that with the mussles "stew" and the bavette steak. Great flavors and just the right portion sizes. Often when we go out we end up agreeing we would have been better off eating at home - my boyfriend is an excellent cook - but Liquid Bread stood out as one of the better restaurants we've been to in months. We will definitely be back."

  • "Chef John Burke makes the most of the opportunity to offer appetizing, well-executed dishes to accompany guests' libations. Delicious chicken and waffles, juicy, flavorful burger served with a luxurious Bernaise sauce, well-caramelized scallops, divine pork belly, fresh Yellowtail, satisfying pate and lovely cheeses. Brownie is served warm with whipped cream and has bits of candied coffee beans to add interest to its flavor and texture. Beer ice cream float served in a mason jar glass is the ultimate way to enjoy the best of both ingredients. Service is very friendly and helpful."

  • "Run don't walk here. Get as quickly as you can. Only reason I didn't lick the appetizer plate chicken pate was we were in a restaurant. Husband's chicken and waffles was best tasting juices running chicken ever. Tasted like chicken was making love than being a meal. My scallops were melt in mouth and sweet potatoes mash perfect accomplished. Beer list is outstanding. Had a honey mead with cloves orange rind and blackberry. My only lack here is the desserts. Nothing sounds or tastes as good as the main meals or entrees but you are nicely full by the time you hit the sweets so don't feel bad for leaving it."
