Our server was spread thin and slow to take our orders, deliver good. Main meals came out luke warm and things like extra bread and second drinks were forgotten. All in all the food was “ok” found the meats to be very fatty and tepid. Salad lacked spark and was served with meals not before. Definitely not good for a birthday celebration. Would not recommend.

My husband is a meat eater and said that the tallow NY was the best steak he had ever eaten. Service was good and food was outstanding. Parmesean Chicken was tender and very tasty. Bac MacN Cheese was delicious. Definitely a place to revisit.

We had a birthday dinner outside on the patio Sunday. The meal was delicious & if my husband hadn’t picked out the most expensive steak from the butcher shop, the bill would have been more reasonable. We got what we paid for & had a lovely night. (Next time we’ll try happy hour, when the burger is 1/2 price, just to offset Sunday’s expenditure.) Our waitstaff was attentive & friendly. Great location & they validate garage parking. Will definitely gladly go again.

I have eaten at Belcampo in Larkspur quite a few times and was excited when they opened in Jack London Square in Oakland. I have now eaten at the Oakland location a few times and have brought numerous friends there. It is a great space in a great location. I like that there's a good butcher shop right on Jack London Square. The food is generally good. Good salads, burgers, breakfast entres, and the duck confit poutine is a favorite. For these reasons, I will continue to refer others to try this restaurant.
On my most recent visit, I had friends visiting from out of town meet me there because they requested a steak dinner. We ordered the Butcher's Dinner. Selected our cut of meet and asked that it be prepared medium. The restaurant was not busy but it took an eternity for our food to arrive, even our salads! When the meat arrived, it was charred black on the outside and cooked almost well done. We were disappointed that the preparation had spoiled a great cut of meat for which we paid a premium plus the per person fee. It also was not a night of great service from their wait staff. I understand that anyone can have an off day, but we waited forever for drinks. When we finally received our food bus staff started coming by to ask if they could remove our plates and other staff were bustling around us preparing to close the restaurant. We arrived between 7:30 and 8. Though it took awhile to order and a long time to get our food. So, it was a pricey, unsatisfying experience. We left convinced not to return for awhile and feeling that Belcampo would not be a good choice for steak.

Hello OutofTowners, my name is Gina and I am the GM of Belcampo in Oakland. I am sorry to hear that your most recent experience was not a great one. Butcher dinner should be spectacular, and cooked exactly as you request. If not we will of course redo it to your liking, but honestly it should come out right the first time. Again please accept my apologies. I would love to invite you back if you would be so kind. I will send you a note with details. Thank you so much for the feedback. Gina

Brunch was great. The service was wonderful, both the staff that took the orders and those that brought it out. I took one star because the drip coffee was overpriced- it was delicious, just overpriced. The entrees and dessert are fairly priced. I had the steak and eggs- totally worth the price. I had them remove the Hollandaise sauce because I do not like Hollandaise, but I sampled my wife's and it is a very good Hollandaise.

Really good food, cocktails, and service, and the prices are on par with Bay Area restaurants (a bit high). But beware of the desserts. A small scoop of homemade ice cream and a cookie is almost $10. They’ll try to ask you if you want to add this to any other desserts, so keep in mind you’re basically paying for another dessert. The desserts themselves are just OK.

Specifically chose this place for brunch because my friends follow a keto diet. Once they read the menu and saw pictures on Yelp, one ordered a cheeseburger WITH bun and the other ordered french toast. Neither had regrets...

Complete waste of money!!! Black Angus has better steak and food. Very disappointed in the quality of the steaks (ordered a rib-eye ordered both to be cooked medium but they were medium well to well-done... and they were served already sliced up in slim strips on the plates so the cook should have been able to see that they were cooked improperly. Definitely won't be back.

The bar and wait staff were perfect! The burger was ordered well done and came rare. Sent it back and the re-cooked the patty and put it back on the same plate. When it was returned all the veg was soggy as was the bun and the burger was still rare. The chicken cutlets were flavorless. How about some mustard sauce or gravy...salt pepper? The waitress tried hard but the kitchen failed big time! Hope she keeps all the tip! Everything else was fine.

Good place to take meat lovers. Others will likely not be impressed. The meat sourced from their own 23,000 acre farm at foot of mt Shasta. Ask the meat cutters for their current favorite cuts of beef, pork, lamb, chicken and charcuterie.

We ordered the a couple of steaks - medium rare. They were about $40 each. They were not played very nice at all. It was just a steak on top of a side (in my case it was carrots) drowning in some sort of sauce. It just didn't look very professional at all. Definitely not something I should be paying $40 for. They steak need more seasoning. But it was cooked right. Definitely a good cut of meat though. I wouldn't say it's worth it to get their steaks.

Go during happy hour and get a burger and beer. Those burgers are great and half off between 4-6.

I had the 100 day aged burger and the beef tallow fat fries. I will never be able to eat meat raised and prepared by typical commercial methods or fry my food any other way.

I was lucky enough to meet Anya Fernald and hear her story awhile back. I have her cookbook. The mortadella sandwiches are nothing short of a delicacy, yet simple to prepare. For convenience I have tried to substitute Belcampo Mortadella with that from other shops, but the flavor of the Belcampo Mortadella leaves no comparison. The sandwich recipe is on their website.

And then we have the fries. Everyone should be cooking with real fat. Both the beef and the duck fat fries are equally indescribable. They'll have you wanting to render your own fat at home. Not your's literally - duck, beef, etc.

I highly, highly recommend the Belcampo experience.

Bocanova, Belcampo’s predecessor restaurant was my absolute Oakland favorite, so I was predisposed to be critical. Unfortunately I was right to be. The food was just ok, and pricey. I tried the lamb meatballs starter, which I had heard good things about... meh. Then I had the St. Louis ribs, not something I usually order. Hard to cut the meat off the bones, but the collard greens and cornbread were yummy.The noise level inside was annoying too. Love the location, so maybe I’ll be back and try a different entre. Definitely going to sit in the patio though.

Poor service on a slowish evening. They never removed appetizer plates before the main courses were left. Steak knives brought over as an afterthought as we moved around our dishes to make space for dinner plates and waited around.

Marrow was good, but the steaks could have been better given the expectations of high quality meat... just drenching the meat in butter is not enough. Other sides ok, asparagus over cooked.

The waitress was trying but didn’t seem to have the appropriate support in terms of well trained staff.

From the ease of making reservation to how promptly we were seated as requested (outside), everything was excellent; our server was attentive but not overbearing and very attuned to the pace of our lunch. Drink and food recommendations were on point. We enjoyed the milk punch, and loved the lamb burger and 100 day aged burger. Both were cooked perfectly. Duck fries didn’t taste any different from the regular fries however. Overall very happy and will return.

Our team had a great time with each other. Service on the slow side - took an hour to get our burgers (we were a group of six. It was about $40 a piece for burger and duck fat fries and water. If we were willing to spend more the steak may have been a better option. One of us got the Parmesan chicken with celery salad - a little bland. But overall we had a great time.

We decided to try Belcampo for the first time to celebrate both my husband's and my brother-in-law's birthdays. My mother likes to take them every year and try a new (to us) restaurant, and the guys love meat. We were seated promptly upon arrival and drink orders taken soon after. Drinks seemed to take a little longer than they should have, not a huge deal. One member of our party went up to the meat counter and selected his steak for dinner, and we then ordered dinner as the drinks arrived. Soon after, a gentleman who worked for the restaurant but was not our server, came over to clarify the meat counter order, as there seemed to be confusion (at the meat counter) regarding what was ordered, even though they print out very specific information on a piece of paper that was given to our server. Waited a full hour after being seated until any food arrived. And despite being told by our server that they would bring our salads out first, it all arrived at once, which was fine since we were famished by that point! However, it did not ALL arrive, as they forgot to bring one salad and one side dish. We quickly realized about the salad and they promptly brought that to the table. We did not realize about the side dish until later and decided it wasn't worth it. During our meal, one member of our party decided she wanted some bread, and soon after our server delivered four unevenly grilled/blackened pieces of dry bread unappetizingly arranged on a plate. Wrapping up our meal, we decided to try the chocolate torte for dessert. Don't bother, it was dry, overdone and flew off the plate when one tried to cut into it with a spoon. Not worth the calories!

There is such a lack of attention to detail that they forgot to charge us our corkage and for the salad that had been forgotten. It was a nice night with family despite the terrible service and just OK food, but we won't be returning.

Great experience. Food and cocktails excellent, with great service at the bar. But what impressed most was the pride all the staff had in the Belcampo concept of raising their own grass fed and finished livestock. Everybody cared. That’s nifty.
