Had the 100 day dry aged burger. It was really good but pricey.

Very delicious meal & a great friendly restaurant environment. Only complaint & its a minor one - took my boyfriend here for his birthday, got him the butcher's dinner but the steak was under-cooked from what he requested. Again minor, but didn't end up 100% blown away because of it. Also a bit too much garlic on the bone marrow, but still extremely tasty and fair priced :)

The meat menu was expansive and the meat was outstanding as it sounded. Our service was a bit bumpy. Not really sure of why. Our meal was actually delivered before our wine. We all had variations of steak and it was perfectly cooked and outstanding. The brussel sprouts were awesome.

I am so happy to have found a GREAT place for brunch in the area! The Bloody Mary was delicious - nice and peppery. Fresh squeezed grapefruit mimosas, refreshing! Loved the tartness of the tomato hollondaise on the Benedict. Sausages and bacon cannot be beat! Also excellent beef tartare. We will definitely be back!

There worst ever! Went at 10 am for brunch, someone drop me some water in my table, then the “so called server” came and stare at me like super bored, she ask ready to order?. While I was I heard other servers coming very polite to other tables explaining the concept of “Belcampo”. The food look burned but somehow cold. They took forever for my eggs and steak.... that tasted like cardboard.
Will never go back again.
Farm to table!? Really? The wine list is ALL THIS MASS PRODUCED , HIGH PRICED WINE! The WORST WINE LIST I EVER SAW... PREACH THAT YOU BELIEVE ANNIA!
ALL THE WINE ARE MADE WITH BUNCH OF CHEMICALS!!!! Which one pairs with your sanctuary meat?

We were seated next to two large parties (one of whom had two dogs!) and next to a kids' play area. Generally, I'm pretty easy going about such things, but it was off-putting paying $200+ for celebratory meal and seeing chihuahuas on laps right next to our table.
The large size of the parties split our server's attention, so it took a while to get our orders in and get the dessert menu. She seemed a little overwhelmed and on her own.

It seems like the space, which is still fairly new has some kinks to iron out in on the service end.
Other than these minor gripes, the food was fantastic and the ambience was okay (baffling on the ceiling helped, but it's still a giant concrete space, so it did get noisy).

Prices were expected considering the quality of the food. The only disappointment were the deviled eggs, which were a bit too tangy and cold for my tastes. The carpaccio was amazing, as were the entrees.

I'd definitely come back, but I'd request a seat closer to the front windows rather than the noisy party/child-friendly section.

Food is good. Best to stick to Steak (w sauce on side - too strong of flavor in bernaise type sauce) or Burger. Korean shortrib has very strong flavor that gets tiresome after few bites.

Service is very nice but totally incompetant. Takes awhile before they come to ur table. never check up on u. don't give share plates or share utensils. give bill without asking if interested in dessert or coffee. make u box ur own leftovers, etc.. on previous visit had both dirty plate and dirty wine glass.

Whoever runs front of house - if there is such a person - should drive over the bridge and see how every restaurant in this price range and slightly lower operates. When servers have down time they polish wine glasses - silverware and check for grime. And rarely have the issues that this place should have addressed by now.
they have several prior locations. looking through past reviews these problems have been apparent for many months.
Will be back for steak since thats a highlight and is close to were i live.

Please put price tags on ALL packaged foods in butcher area. asking what each stock and chili etc cost is annoying!

Positive - Love the option of selecting a piece of meat and they cook to order. I had a cowboy steak that was awesome. All staff from hostess to waiter to butchers were very friendly and knowledgeable.
Negative - My girlfriend had a Korean short rib. Very tough texture, not much of a flavor. The only potato option they have is a purée. I’m not a 6 month old, my stomach can take a baked potato. To me, no steak dinner is complete without a potato option. There are several tables that are within 5 feet of a cabinet that holds place settings. During our entire dinner there was a constant sound of plates and silverware clanking in back round.

It’s been a while since I’ve ordered a lamb burger but I’m pretty sure this was the best one I’ve ever had!

This is a great spot to eat outdoors overlooking the harbor on a sunny day — vitamin D and a lamb burger. How could I go wrong.

Gina, the general manager, served our party of 4, as one of the servers had called in sick. I believe this was our third visit since December of last year. Everything was great, as on our previous visits. No complaints.

Very good quality meat. However, they now have TV screens with sports on a Saturday night, visible throughout the dining room, so unsuitable for a date or special occasions. The vegetable accompaniments were overcooked.

Had heard good things about this place and were excited to try it out. We had reservations for XMas eve, and it turned out that they were only serving the lunch menu, which meant no fish or veggie option for one of our party who is a vegan. They could have let us know ahead of time, we'd have made other arrangements. They suggested we have the steak salad without the steak, no price discount on the $21 salad so we paid for the steak anyway. My husband and I got hamburgers, and it took them an hour to bring them to the table, mine was overcooked but I didn't want to lose another hour sending it back. Wine list is okay but not over the top, very few options for bottles under $40. Our two hamburgers, a salad and a bottle of the least expensive zinfandel set us back $130. Understand that they may have been short staffed from the holiday, but we paid a lot of money for some not that memorable hamburgers. Not worth it in any way, won't be back.

Upscale place to meet with others and keep kids entertained with toys and stuffed animals. Came for Christmas Eve lunch and had the steak frites. Requested my meat to be cooked medium and the steak was quite tough. Also unfortunate that they do not offer parking validation for the Jack London Square Lot.

The drinks were fine. I ordered a baby lettuce salad which was just a pile of greens with a lemon/olive oil vinaigrette for $8.00. We asked for bread and all we got was 4 slices of not so fresh bread with no butter or olive oil, come on Belcampo, you can do better than that. The hanger steaks were very good snd perfectly cooked. My fries were excellent.
