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.

Private Dining

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.

This was one of the best dining experiences in DC, and my family dines out often. The service was notably competent and friendly, as good service is difficult to come by in DC nowadays. The waiters explained each dish, and made very relevant recommendations.

The small plates and ceviche dishes were wonderfully prepared and very tasty. The highlight was Spicy Tuna Ceviche and the Del Campo Empanadas.

The Tomahawk RibEye was certainly worth the wait and I can see why everyone raves about it as their favorite shareable dish here. Simply the best steak experience in DC, and we are talking all the traditional steakhouses here.

The crowd was laid back and unpretentious, which is quite different from most of the Power steakhouses in the city. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food with my family and we will certainly be back for another meal here.

This restaurant is by far one of my top picks when it comes to cuisine. I do have to note that their service is more relaxed and, on the occasions that I have dined, have been more spaced out to allow for casual conversation and enjoyment of your food.

We went here for my daughter's birthday, service was prompt, food was amazing! And they were kind enough to provide some alfajores and a candle with our desserts.

For the price of brunch there was not many options sadly... I expected more since taco bamba is amazing. Hopefully they will add more to the brunch menu. Carne and churros were my top choices...

We had not been to Del Campo for years and I will not be going back. The food was not especially good.... although not bad. Our 2 halibut entrees were not hot. The staff reacted well by saying they would remake the 2 orders. But they took quite a long time to be brought back to the table. We were actually finished with the rest of the meal. And unfortunately we were seated next to 2 couples who very loud and oblivious to the fact! I guess this is not really the restaurants problem but it made it very difficult to talk at our table and therefore effected our enjoyment.

Super Peruvian restaurant with great menu, including fantastic steaks. Try the Ceviche. Robust wine list - great support from Sommelier - to help bridge the ceviche to the steaks. Good service. Reasonably priced.

The first time I went to Del Campo I was totally surprised how wonderful it was. We were lucky to be seated since reservations are a must. Service and food were exceptional. We returned and liked it even more. Highly recomend it. We have tried the ceviche, veal sweetbread, duck, lamb grill, empandas and grilled calamari...outstanding and luckily we have a great selection left to try.

This was my third time at Del Campo and the food was as good as always. I was happy to get a window table since I requested one ahead of time. The only complaint was the lack of attention from our waiter. We snagged the floor manager who is always circulating to explain about our waiter and that we wanted to order more drinks. He was very helpful, apologized, and encouraged us to order dessert as his treat.

We booked a reservation close to kitchen-closing (9:45PM) but, the staff was continuously friendly throughout the evening. We ordered a fair amount of food and most everything was quite delicious. The flavors were very bold. Even dessert was available after closing and we were not rushed at all that evening - we left close to 11Pm. The drinks were great too! I would definitely visit again.

We loved it! We can't wait to go back. The food was fantastic. The waiter was knowledgeable but didn't come around too often. We found ourselves waiting awhile to ask for something. When he did stop by he was very responsive. It was kind of loud which doesn't bother us.

Has a good vibe, nice location and fun cocktails. The service was great and our starter was delicious. The issue we had is they cook their steak with a cherry smoke and that flavor took over everything. Overall, it was fine but probably wouldn't go back again.

Loved the decor and ambiance of the dining room. The service was good and our waiter was happy to discuss the menu with us. We decided to try 3 dishes to share and enjoyed all 3! We got the "Chinatown" Chirashi Ceviche, Lobster and Shrimp Empanadas, and the Smoked Crab. The Ceviche was my favorite, but the other 2 were no disappointment. Very enjoyable location for a night out!

Service was unfortunately slow, beverages took sometime, to the point we had to ask if they forgot. We were unsure exactly who was our waiter, as waiters were scattered around, when we needed to re order drinks and our main course we had to flag someone down. More attention in this area would have seen a better review! Food was great when it came.

Main dishes are very good, well prepared but totally bare. To supplement them you need to order one or two side dishes. Empanadas are very good. There is no cheese order available. Deserts are acceptable, nothing to write home about it.

Food was good although the pork mix was a little too pink for me. Evening was ruined by the people I was seated next to who clearly thought the restaurant was their personal dining room. tables are too close together to make for an enjoyable dining experience. Again, good food, good service but just not what I want to go through again.
