OpenTable Diner (San Francisco)
4.0  Dined on February 14, 2016

Our server was super friendly and was more than happy to give recommendations or explain menu items. The service was pretty quick, and the food itself was great. I highly recommend the the goat curry pasta they have. My girlfriend had the "Mussels" which was was served with udon noodles, crispy octopus, and an awesome broth. Both main courses were great.

The warm belgium endive, which we had for an appetizer, was the only plate that I wasn't crazy about. We both felt like the endive overpowered the chorizo and other flavors on the plate. While it was still decent, it didn't match the other items we tried.

The ambiance was nice too. I would give them an A+ for music, and the interior is pleasant to look at. The music and background noise volume of the venue overall wasn't to loud, and I could still hold conversations pretty easily.

Would definitely go back :)

The burger with bearnaise and the oxtail with polenta were each amazing, but the little plates, like the pickled egg or crostini, were all special too

It was ok, but nothing special. Service was slow and it was not busy. I am sure there are better choices, but I'm not local.

My husband and I ordered steak bites, scallops, sole, and squash bisque. Every dish was fabulous! I especially recommend the steak and bisque. Our friends ordered the chicken & waffles and the burger, and said they were amazing.

It was exciting to arrive at Liquid Bread. This was clearly a gem in town and all the food looked amazing. I wasn't there for dinner, so can only speak to some appetizers and drinks. Food was great. We had fried peppers, apple salad and cheese plate. Nothing amazing, but decent enough grub to nibble on. What I really appreciated was the old fashion they made. SO GOOD! Perfectly crafted. Beer list is also epic.

I had to deduct stars for the incredibly SLOW service. The waiter took about 20 minutes to deliver a drink and another 20 when promising to give us the desert list. My friends and I were very happy chatting away with each other, but when the restaurant is literally 500 sq ft, and most patrons have already left... there should be NO REASON why the drinks took so long. If you're lucky enough to get another waiter who is on their game, I'm sure you'll love the experience.

Our server on Friday night was very knowledgeable of both the menu and the beer list. She recommended the scallops and burger as well as two different beers. She was very attentive and made our dining experience a blast. I also want to thank the hostess for accommodating me for being a few minutes late to my reservation! I called to give a heads up we were running behind (Campbell parking ugh) and she made me feel very welcomed and assured me not to worry about losing my table.

Can't wait to come back!

Any place that has Chicken and Waffles, Alligator and Oxtail on the menu is indeed quite cool. I love this place.

Seated two feet from another couple in 75% empty restaurant on a weeknight. Asked to be moved, ended up right next to the kitchen. Horrible menu no variety grossly over priced across the board. Ordered two salads 20$ burgers one drink each - 100$ with tip. Complete travesty on value. Dark unimaginative decor, highly depressing. Wouldn't go back if you gave me $1000. Huge disappointment is an understatement . No redeeming points, in summary horrible.

Interesting bar offerings. Not the usual big name brands. Mostly small batch organic spirits.
The food is excellent. Very eclectic menu. The Mussels with Crispy Octopus over noodles is amazing! Great salads and sous too. This is a casual little place with some very sophisticated dishes.

Was here last week, and this week had a friend from Ireland in town, and we could not resist coming back to LB to showcase the great drink, food and vibe of one of Silicon Valley's best neighborhood restaurants. As always, we had a great time. The chicken and waffles and the burger did not disappoint. The craft cocktails were perfect, as were the various beers we sampled. The 'donut' bread pudding is not to be missed. One of the best bread puddings ever.

We regularly go to LB. The atmosphere and food/drink are always perfect. This time we ate outside, and had perfectly prepared martinis, margaritas and old fashioneds. We shared the fig appetizer, and had mussels and the newer dish with sole. For dessert we had the bread pudding, which is also newer on the menu. As always, the meal was perfect. Friendly service rounded out another great evening at this Bay Area gem.

Great place for a good beer, and the best burger, made with a béarnaise sauce. Outside dining is great for watching the Campbell weekend crowd.

Limited wine list which was a little pricey but great beer list. Food menu also limited but everything we had (4 of us) was excellent. Unique, creative and fabulous. Definitely worth a return trip!

Don't be afraid to try something new, we have never been disappointed, from kale salad, mussels and chorizo over udon noodles to baked red beans. The chef is a champ. Oh did I mention the beer list? Well the beer list is insane. I think I like the G Pub.

Far cry from typical 'bar food'. The chef strives to be creative yet comforting at he same time. Bold flavors and some unique proteins. The drink menu is insane and constantly rotates. Best part is they give you a discount on any bottles you want to take home if you dine in :)

I booked it for my husband and his friends and they enjoyed it a lot, great place for a few guys to get together and enjoy a beer or two.

While they have good service and menu, their price and value point is off. $20 for a burger is kinda overpriced and when I wanted to swap veggies for fries, an extra $5. Either way, will still probably get it again.

We went pretty early on a Sunday so the restaurant wasn't full however the ambience is nice and it's cool to have a view of the kitchen. The food was tasty, although a little salty for me and the addition of healthily prepared vegetables, maybe salads, would be nice.

We've been eating here for years. The food is always very good, the beer selection is very adventurous. When we come for dinner we know that we will most likely be getting the mussels because they are unique and delicious. The beer choice is always the adventure and the servers are very knowledgeable about each beer even though the available beers change every month.
This particular visit the restaurant was very busy and are server took while to get to us. I could see she was serving a lot of tables and was trying her best but it is not fun to have to wait 10 minutes to put in our beer order.

The steak was very tasty, and cooked perfectly. The sunchoke and celery root puree complemented the meat very well. I would definitely go back.

Although the server was very kind to us, allowing us to wait a long time for one member of our party to arrive, the food cost a lot more than the taste would justify. Consequently, I can't recommend this place, unless your primary attraction is the extensive list of beers on tap and in bottles.

Wife and I eat at Liquid Bread on a periodic basis; but, this trip was due to it being Silicon Valley Beer Week. LB had an assortment of Bay Area craft beers on tap. The chicken and waffles is always a winner. The Mahi Mahi was outstanding as well. We got to LB enough where I'm now wishing they would add more to the menu as we've just about eaten everything on the menu.

We had a reservation and were seated promptly at our table, which was at the back of the room across from the kitchen and not ideal. Heirloom tomatoes were great but other items, specially the herbed chicken and white corn soup were too sweet and not to our liking.

Great service as our table stayed many hours! Wonderful selection of beers, but the food was really just ok. For a neighborhood littered with incredible restaurants, and based on previous reviews I felt it was rather underwhelming. I had the mussels and the Udon noodles were a bit overcooked and there weren't enough mussels for me to feel satisfied. My dinner companion ordered the bavette steak - plenty of meat, but really, it's just a flank steak!

We've eaten here often. We love it every time. If you love beer, you'll be in heaven with the ever-changing and extensive list of on-tap beers. If you merely like beer (like me), you'll love the great advice of the friendly staff who can help you find the beer that you'll really enjoy. The food is always superb. Don't overlook the specials (especially the appetizers which are frequently changed and are always a real treat). And finally, the service is always great. The staff is friendly, really knowledgeable about the food and beer, and helpful.

This place isn't fancy in appearance. The seats are mainly tall tables which could be a little uncomfortable for some and impossible for people with some disabilities. There's one "regular" table inside and several outside though - so you can often secure those if you plan ahead with reservations. It can be a little noisy.

The pros far outweigh the cons at this place, so I strongly encourage you to visit.

Everything is delicious. Service is great. I've been having conversations about several menu items with friends for the past week ! Also a amazing selection of beers!

This is the second time I've dined at Liquid Bread and I am impressed that Campbell has attracted restaurants of this caliber. I'd recommend eating family style as the flavors are inventive combinations and fun to try. Standouts for us were the duck and pork belly dishes. The signature burger — which is a crowd-pleaser we were told — was also quite tasty. The waitstaff is helpful, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Good for a dinner with friends or a casual date. Very enjoyable.
