Went there for a birthday. Told them and put it on my reservation. Nothing special done. We had the steak dinner for two, asked for it medium rare... brought it rare. Asked them to cook more, brought it back medium. Brought wrong cocktail once, asked for right one, brought back proper one but only half full. Had been there a half dozen times before and all was good, but this time it was very poor.

One of the tastiest and juiciest pork chops we’ve ever had. We also love the Shepard’s pie with delicious bread and salad.

We had a lovely meal. We could hear each other when talking, a plus for me. It is a bit on the expensive side, even with a voucher. The wait staff is great.

Third time is not the charm. We’ve eaten here two other times and enjoyed our food.
Not this time. The filet is off the menu. The burger was raw, not medium. So she takes it back.
20 minutes later my well done burger arrives sans the arugula. Fries on all four plates were
Lukewarm. The other meat dishes were chewy and had too much sauce
Def my going back

Very disappointed. The steaks ($50+), which they are known for, first were delivered cold. They sent us back 3 new steaks, all were tough and not very good. Enjoyed the ambiance and the appetizers, but the steaks were the non-negotiable for me to come back. Stick with the Hillstones, Banderas, and Baltaires, and don't risk it on this $56 dollar NY Strip.

It had been a pretty brutal week or two, and we needed a dinner that didn't so closely resemble the lunch-ier dinners we've been downing. Belcampo was conveniently located and had seating so we grabbed a reservation and went for our first time. Its a bit confusing to find the entrance but the door opens into a surprisingly large, warmly-lit space. Shortly after sitting, our server - Anthony - stopped by with a warm greeting and took a moment to talk us thru the cocktail specials. No high pressure, just friendly suggestions. After bringing the drinks and learning of our "rookie" status, he patiently and enthusiastically walked us thru the menu. His descriptions were vivid and recommendations appealing, so we took him up on his suggestions. And glad we did - the food was perfect. But as good as the food was, it was Anthony's service that made the evening so pleasant. Thank you Belcampo for that.

The decor and ambience is very nice. The cocktail selection is huge and very good. Our service was leisurely- we got our drinks very quickly but then waited a long time to order. Once we did, our food came out at a nice pace. The appetizers were delicious and the quality of the steaks were great!

Bel Campo has consistently delicious food, mostly sourced from their own farm in Southern Oregon. The meat, chicken, lamb, and sides are all deliciously prepared and the service is always very friendly and helpful.The ambiance is wonderful, and cocktails are inventive. My one complaint is with the choices of wines by the glass. My husband and I are consistently disappointed by the selections of wines by the glass. I am not sure whether the bottles are kept open too long, or they are not taking advantage of the many California wines available from more boutique wineries that we love at other restaurants in the area.

We will continue to go to Belcampo. The food, service and ambience is fantastic. I had the kale salad and chicken this time. Loved both tremendously as did my wife loved her steak and fries. Also, the bread pudding was up there with the best we've ever had.

First visit was a great experience. However, our 2nd visit completely ruined the original experience. We were never served by the same person, leading us to not know who to ask for to get extra drinks or dessert . Our check was brought out before we even had the chance to ask for either. Food was still good and it’s unfortunate the service ruined it.

My fiance and I went here for Valentines Day and we had a really lovely time. I think the restaurant could do a few things to improve the overall service and food. I can't quite put my finger on it, but for some reason, something was missing. The staff were all friendly, nice, hospitable, etc. and the food is organic and local, which is amazing. The portions are so-so for the price, but I am glad the portions aren't too big. I would recommend this for a more casual lunch or dinner.

This is my 'go to' choice when I am craving steak. High quality, comfy atmosphere, good service, excellent mixologists. Easy to get to location in Santa Monica. Great for us Westside-ers. :-)

For a place attached to a good butcher shop, you'd expect the steak/meat to be really good. It was average. I can literally cook a better steak at home. Also, the fries were luke warm and dry tasting. The service was extremely slow. It took more than 30 minutes for our main courses to come out after the salad. The wine list is minimal, but the bartender had no idea what the bottle of red we asked about tasted like. Also, the restaurant was fairly empty and we had a reservation, but the hostess sat us in a tiny two person table facing directly into the kitchen door. All in all, just confirmation that this place is not worth it.

Got a reservation on a Saturday night for 8:00 15 minutes before. Restaurant was pretty empty. Had a urge for a cheeseburger and fries. Delicious! My husband had two glasses of wine and I had a root beer. Just what we both wanted. Very satisfying. The ambiance is not great. Missing windows. It’s hidden away but worth the visit if you can find the door.

The food is always high quality and the service is excellent. This was a good choice for a lunch when it was important to hear one another speak, as it's not crowded mid-day.
Unfortunately some of the items that should have been hot arrived less than, but this was the first time I've ever experienced anything short of excellence. The price was a little steep for what we had; after the 20% tip I left we closed out at $90 for 2 non-alcoholic drinks, 2 apps, 1 shared salad, 1 shared veg side dish, 2 coffees. But I'd still recommend the place and return myself.
