noisy. pricy food but very good. wait staff very good.
Thank you Jade.
Only disappointed that the wine list had no vintage years. Very strange...
Everything else was great!
Hello Deanna. My name is Gina and I am the Gm of Belcampo. I am glad to hear that your visit was a positive one. The choice to not put the vintages on the menu is indeed different. The servers know the vintages are are happy to share upon request. Last minute vintage changes from the supplier can create incorrect menu information which we are trying to avoid. This way, the server always has the most recent and correct vintage for every bottle on the shelf. Thank you for your feedback!
Food quality & flavor is excellent, servers were very attentive, but for some reason two burgers took about half an hour to come out during lunch when the dining room was only about half full (?)
Hello David, and thank you for your feedback. My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. I am sorry your food took over a half hour, that is indeed longer than we like. I am however glad to hear that your overall visit was a good one. I appreciate your review and will speak to my chef about increasing speed.
We loved the vibe here. We arrived and requested to be seated outside. It was chilly but the day was sunny and enjoyable. The server was attentive. The meal was delish. Atmosphere on the inside was equally fun. We will be back.
Thank you Diane! My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. The patio is great on a nice day. Im glad you were able to enjoy even though it was a bit chilly. We do have heaters-you can always request to be near one. Please let me know next time you come as I would love to say hello.
Fantastic experience overall. Great ambiance, excellent service and delicious food.
Lived up to expectations. Tasty, juicy NY strip & a glass of wine are all that’s needed.
Everything was good except the potato chips that came with the chorizo and cheese. They were extremely stale. The server replaced them with chips a little less stale. Please make them fresh daily!
Thank you for your review! My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. I do appreciate your feedback. We were saving the chips for only one day but I see that is too long as they become stale. We now make them fresh every morning. Thank you again.
It was a lovely day so we ate outside on the patio. I had chick sand very good FF could have been crispier. My friend ordered the cob kind of Blah, egg was much to soft for her. We asked for bread & we got it toasted but no olive oil or butter and it cost extra!Service was very slow although our server was friendly and attentive just the bar and kitchen was slow.
Order(salad) was wrong. Server didn’t check on us to see how the order was so it took a while to get her attention. Replacement took 15-20 minutes and the rest of the party was already done eating by the time it showed up. Asked for parking validation and eventually gave up due to the wait. Not a great experience.
Hello Anthony. My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. I am so sorry to hear that your visit was less than great. I think from your feedback you dined this past Monday during lunch? This will help me narrow down who the server was that waited on you. Regardless we need o do a better job, and we are certainly capable of it. Anthony, I would like to invite you back if you would give us another shot. I will send you a private note with details. Thank you so much for your feedback.
I think they lost our order...we had to wait some time for our food to arrive.
Hello Kathryn. My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. Thank you so much for your feedback. I am sorry we did a less than wonderful job on your most recent visit. I see from your post that you dined with us on Sunday last? Was that for brunch or for dinner? The more info I get helps me make the necessary adjustments. I really do appreciate feedback and suggestions. Kathryn, if you would be so kind to allow us another shot I would like to invite you back. I will PM you with details.
It was Easter! Getting food took 40 minutes! Food was great-
Service was what I will return for
Brooch bread served charcuterie was poor
Charcuterie was Mediocre
Hello Kier. My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. I am so sorry to hear that the charcuterie was less than wonderful on the day of your visit. I appreciate your feedback. I hope you let a manager know so that they could replace it. If not, please do join us again so I can buy you one. On your next visit please do let me know so that I can say hello and buy you a lovely charcuterie platter. Gina
Unfortunately this time dinner at belcampo was hugely disappointing. Service was lethargic but friendly and the menu did not accurately reflect what was available.
While some food was quite good, other meals were just bad.
Hello Melissa, and thank you for your feedback. My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. I am sorry to hear that your most recent visit was not wonderful. Service should be fun and friendly. We are indeed making some changes to the menu and our current printing does not reflect the most recent update. I apologize for that. We will have a lovely new menu very soon. I would love to hear in more detail which dishes were not good so we can address them immediately. Thank you again.
I’ve been to Bellcampo many times.
Food was great, service kept missing .
No steak knives until we asked, drinks were empty for extended periods of time, and one drink completely forgotten.
Hello JohnW! My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. Thank you so much for your feedback. I truly appreciate it as it helps us make changes and learn. I am glad to here the food was enjoyable, sad to hear the service was not. I have some new servers that I am working hard to polish and shine. Those little misses do add up and will make or break a dining experience. John, when you visit us again please ask for me as I would love to meet and make sure you are taken care of.
A great first experience. Staff and food were top notch. Will return.
Hello CaseyD! Thank you for your feedback. My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. I am so glad to hear that your most recent visit was a good one. On your next visit please ask for me as I would love to say hello and meet you.
You have to try the lamb burger! It is amazing and the meat market is the best
Thank you catherinec! My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. I appreciate your feedback. Indeed the lamb burger is one of my favorites as well. Glad you like it. And the meat counter is wonderful. Our meat quality is really spectacular. Makes for a wonderful meal at home as well. Please do look me up on your next visit catherine, I would love to meet you.
The food here is SO good. Unfortunately they forgot one of our drinks - and managed to come to our table three additional times with other drinks but without that one before finally realizing. Still. We love it. Location is amazing
Hello! I am so glad to hear you enjoyed yourself! My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. I sincerely hope your correct drinks were delivered. Please let me know next time you come in as I would love to buy you a drink and get it right the first time. Cheers!
Best restaurant I've been to in years! If you love protein, you will LOVE Belcampo.
Thank you Brandon!
Lovely location; great meat; friendly helpful staff.
Absolutely horrible, the wait on food was ridiculous, the food it self was either under seasoned or over seasoned (the godess salad had no salt whatsoever, the Mac and cheese was so salty almost inedible) Its funny had a great lunch there a month ago, never going back
Hello Tracy! My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. I am so sorry your second visit was not a great one. We are ALWAYS more than happy to remake food if it is not to your liking. Seasoning should be spot on of course and food should be consistent. Please allow me to make it up to you. I will reach out in a private message. Thank you so much for your feedback, it truly helps us move forward and make changes when needed.
Food and service were excellent. We had an enjoyable evening.
Thank you Eric!
The location and ambiance is excellent! The food was good but the portions were pretty small for the price.
Fantastic Meal and very nice server!
They only serve pasture raised & finished beef and it is outstanding. Portions are generous with out being huge. Hamburgers are really great & location is perfect on the waterfront at Jack London Square.
Thank you Mary!
Ambiance was top-notch. Service staff was friendly, helpful, courteous, and very accommodating. You notice the quality of their food when you take the first bite. Everything about Belcampo was so w h o l e s o m e and I will be recommending it to all my friends and family!
Thank you LizM! So glad to hear you had a great experience. My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. Indeed our quality meat inspires everything we do. From the way we farm to the way we treat our guests. Thank you for your feedback, and please let me know next time you come in so I can say hello.
We had several items from the lunch menu...all were very good except that two lamb burgers were not cooked to order (medium rare). They were more like medium well in terms of color, but were still juicy. When that was brought to the attention of the wait staff they offered to replace the burgers. We said thanks, but no. They ended up comping a side order and provided a Cookies and Milk dessert for free. We appreciated that and it was an appropriate response. We will go back because the food is compelling. The beef burger order was medium rare as ordered and awesome.
Hello JerryB! Thank you for your feedback. My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. I am sorry to hear the lamb was overdone. (That lamb burger is my favorite thing on the menu). I am however very glad to hear that you brought it to our attention and my staff replied appropriately: offering to remake the burgers. Always makes sure to let us know when something is not exactly as you want it, we are happy to redo. And please let me know next time you visit us as I would love to say hello.
This is my second lunch here and it didn't disappoint any of us. Cobb salad delicious, steak salad also delicious as was the Belcampo burger. Will return again to try either dinner or weekend brunch.
Hello BonnieW! My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. Thank you for your feedback. I'm very glad to hear that both of your visits were good. To be honest the lunch menu is my favorite. Brunch is pretty great too! Do let me know when you would like to come for brunch as I would like to say hello.
Always a great experience! One of our ‘go to’ restaurants.
Great spot for outdoor dining with friends. Farmers market and other events are often happening at Jack London. It has become quite the happening spot
Thank you BillB! My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. The Farmers Market indeed fills ours Sunday brunch with a lively vibe. Thank you for the positive feedback. We appreciate it.
The room was much cooler than the pictures on line. The food was fantastic and the service was great. Will definitely go again
My family enjoyed the experience. First time for several of them.
On our daughter's last evening at home from spring break, we waited 15 minutes for our waitress to take our order; 10 minutes for our drinks; another 15 for our appetizer/salads. Our portable heater did not work and we were not offered to move tables until we decided to move on our own after we notify the waiter. After 1.5 hour after we sat down, we still did not get our four entrees. We were starving and had no explanations for the delay. 3 tables of patrons who were seated after us had eaten and left, we still had not received our food. We told the manager we want to just leave and were so frustrated. We were not offered any explanations for our slow service. They were completely under-staffed and were incompetent in customer service.
Hello. My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. I am so sorry your experience on Friday 3/15 was so bad. it sounds like from start to finish we failed you. We strive for (and are very capable) much, much better than that. Please accept my apologies. I realize this does little to fix the situation as you wasted a precious last night with your daughter. Allow me to make it up to you. I will reach out to talk details.
This is a meat-lover's paradise, although there are other things on the menu... Food is generally quite good, although obviously meat-centric dishes shine more than, say, salads. The "big chop salad" is really a sad effort - especially at $16. That said, the service is friendly and efficient, the space itself is quite beautiful, and it's a great option for a low-key, high-quality meal in Oakland. And the burger (I tried my daughter's) was out of this world.
Thank you Jennifer for your feedback. My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. I am glad to hear that service and meat were a hit, but sad that the Chop Salad missed the mark. I love our salads, esp the Cobb. I will pass along to my chefs and take another look at the Chop. It should be big and inviting for sure. Thank you again!
Burger was good but way overpriced
Hello Eddie. Thank you for the feedback. My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. I am sorry you found the burger overpriced. We do have an exceptional product and feel our prices are in line with the meat we produce. Im glad to hear it was tasty.
We have been coming to Belcampo for almost year and half once a week in. Larksburg. Lamb burger and Brussel sprouts are the best. I took my girlfriend for my birthday to the one in Oakland and also good food pleasant modern look! The service was wonderful and their water is delicious😀 (comparing to Larksburg chlorine water)
HI! Thank you Moniagf for your feedback. So g lad to hear that your gf's bday was a success. And our water is pretty tasty too :)
Phenomenal! Best service, food, and atmosphere around. I love Belcampo
Thank you SaraK! My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. Im so glad to hear that service and food were on point. Please let me know when you would like to return as I would love to say hello.
Belcampo is always lovely, and it was nice to visit again.
Thank you NathanW!
Super yummy but it’s pricey!
Thank you DanaW! My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. Our food is yummy and that is due to our exceptional quality of meat. I am aware that this translates into a higher cost as we do invest quite a bit of time and effort (and care) into thoughtfully raising our cattle and foul. My favorite thing on the menu is actually one the least expensive, the Double Fast Burger. Its available at lunch/brunch (no dinner) for $14. Its so good that LA Times ranked it better than Shake Shack!
I love going to this restaurant...the food is great, nice happy hour if you arrive early and always easy to have a table conversation sitting inside or out.
Thank you Dawn! My name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo. I appreciate your feedback. The patio is indeed an easy place to sit and relax (cant wait for summer!) and HH is great. Half off a Belcampo burger is a deal. Let me know next time you stop by as I would love to say hello. Gina
