About Del Campo
The lifestyle and food culture celebrated on an estancia, a large South American vineyard estate, is the inspiration for Victor Albisu’s flagship restaurant in the Chinatown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The airy, 174-seat agrarian space is home to a meat-driven, wine-centric menu that is a product of Albisu’s Latin American roots and travels throughout Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Uruguay.

Del Campo's extensive selection of steaks and various slow-roasted meats served with vibrant herb sauces, such as chimichurris and fresh salsas, is the backbone of the menu. Chef Victor Albisu’s Peruvian heritage shows itself in the form of a Latin raw bar of ceviches, tiraditos and crudos.
Del Campo Ratings and Reviews
Our dining experience was excellent. We were celebrating our 2 year anniversary. We had an excellent time and will definitely be back. The manger greeted us and gave us both a glass of champagne. So unexpected and we were so surprised. The food was excellent my wife’s steak a little on the fatty side. The atmosphere was excellent we felt so comfortable there. Thank you again
Food was great. We had a small hiccup in that we heard one of the specials being "pork belly" but when it came, it was pork tenderloin. The 2 guests who received this mixed up dish were disappointed, but then the manager came by and replaced both with other entree's of their choosing. One selected Hanger Steak and the other a sirloin steak. The 2 other guests had steaks as well. All 4 steaks were grilled perfectly in terms of color and temperature. Also, the steaks were very flavorful and tender, which can be an issue with Hanger Steak if it is even slightly overdone. And to top it all off, the manager bought us a bottle of wine for the trouble of mixing up the order. He didn't have to do that since he already replaced both items quickly and with no trouble. The restaurant had a leaning to using smoke in everything from some cocktails, to the grilled steaks, to the "burnt" greens. All in all, it was a terrific evening and we will continue to bring friends and family here.
My wife and I had a wonder experience; I took her there for her birthday. Service was great as everyone was attentive and made great suggestions.
My wife ordered the Wagyu Sirloin which was cooked to her liking and very tender. I had the Jumbo Prawns which were beyond “jumbo” and flavorful. I would definitely recommend this place and of course the Asado cocktail that ones with with two cubes of hanger steak.
The wagyu bavette sirloin was one of the best steaks I’ve ever eaten, and for a good price considering this is a fancy steakhouse! The presentation was fantastic as well. My boyfriend got the prime dry aged ribeye (also delicious), and both the steaks were brought out together on a hot grill topped with bone marrow and sides of very fresh chimichurri and salsa.
The cocktails were also fantastic! The smoked cherry old fashion was made tableside (yes, that includes igniting wood chips to create the smoke!), and the pisco sour was light and refreshing. Also yummy - the complimentary bread with olive oil and smoked sea salt!
Went for Restaurant Week, and the portions were good. We both enjoyed our opening courses - I had the burnt ends/brisket empanadas (excellent) and my wife had the salad with burrata. We were, unfortunately, both underwhelmed by our main course, the short rib. Needed some seasoning and it was too fatty to truly enjoy. The dessert, grilled carrot cake, was also very good.
Looked at the regular menu, as well, and for many it's well out of reach price-wise. I know it is for us, hence the Restaurant Week visit. I would return, however, to try something different.
When we arrived, we were promptly seated. Our waiter went over the menu with us and we ordered the smoked old fashioned which the presentation was special and the cocktail was also good. Our first course was beef empanadas and our main entree was the 18 oz rib eye and the prawns. Great recommendation by waiter. Highly Recommend a visit!!
Walked in and was greeted by a friendly hostess. The restaurant is beautiful. Unfortunately, that is where anything positive I have to say ends. While our server was nice, the service was incredibly slow. Two of the things we ordered we were informed were not available. The food that we were able to order came out (after what seemed like an hour) and was almost inedible due to the amount of spice. We are from Texas, so trust we know how to handle spicy food, but this was different. This was an unnecessary amount of char and red pepper flakes on everything. We didn't even want to look at the dessert menu after we ate as much of dinner as we could. 1 - because we didn't know how much longer we would have to wait for that to come out and 2 - we weren't sure if that too would be coated in red pepper flakes. I wish we hadn't wasted our last dinner in DC at this restaurant.
Ceviches are perfect for sharing with plantain chips that complement the fish flavors. Empanada crust light and not overbearing on the fillings. Cod stew reminds you of a great Spanish paella. The nearby bar is a little noisy so try to get a table deeper in the restaurant.
Service - Superb
Pisco Punch - Good
Sausage - Excellent
Wagyu Bavette Steak - Superb
Chimichurri - Superb
Smoked Potatoes - Superb
Brussels Sprouts - Mediocre (too sweet - would have preferred more char in the flavor)
Pot de Creme - Superb
Mint Ice Cream - Excellent
Best smoke cherry old fashioned bourbon drink I’ve ever had!!! We started with the Del Campo Empanadas—excellent and tasty! Two ribeye steaks w/bone marrow compliments of the chef—excellent!! Smoked greens and roasted potatoes-excellent!!! This is one of my top 3 restaurants in the DMV!!! Happy New Year!!!
First, best Pisco Sour we have had since visiting Buenos Aires (by far). This is an all-meat place but not in the traditional steak house way. It is South American focused from the wine to much of the menu. The sweetbreads were very good as was the rolled skirt steak. The sommelier was extremely helpful and found us a unique and very good Argentinian wine in our price range. Plus, Del Campo is fun and welcoming.
