Food was bland. Not sure they even sprinkled salt on any one piece of meat. Service was okay but the new server just said no instead of asking if they had the things we were asking for. Prices did not match the quality.

Felt impersonal w/all App ordering system. A bit like take out at a restaurant. A bit disappointing for first timers. Food was ok but formula felt detached. Auto service charge for what? Lots of work on our part. Difficult to get any questions answered.

I love the food but service was lousy. The only reason I keep coming back is because of the food. Not sure why, hardly anyone in restaurant.

It was a very nice restaurant. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The food was tasteful and cooked as requested. The price was a little high for the portions but it was a nice experience. I’ll likely return at a future date.

While we don't like to give negative reviews, unfortunately, here is why this restaurant deserves one: 1) ambiance and decor made us feel we were entering some type of walkup deli. Very sterile. That set the mood. 2) Our server was great, no complaints there but we got the impression very few people darken the restaurant's doorstep, and person was compensating for this factor. 3) The prime steak entrees just come with the tasteless beef on a plate. The meat (medium rare) was exceptionally tough for a ribeye. All the other "side dishes" are a la carte. I'm surprised we didn't have a line item charge for water served. The side dishes were unimaginative and also tasteless. Personally, I'm sorry that this newly established restaurant (other locations exist beside Hillsdale) is taking a space at the reimagined Hillsdale Mall. BTW, the menu is very limited which gives pause to why those few menu items are not exemplary.

Food was excellent, bar service was a little slow but all servers were friendly and helpful. Servers check in with us a number of times to make sure everything was okay. It would have been nice to know there was no accompaniment with our order, everything is a la carte so the plate was pretty empty. We will go back.

We waited over a half hour for our food. Our waitress ignored us So we asked another server to help us and he said” he’s going to be our waiter now. We ordered New york steak to be split. it came sliced like roast beef. The animal fat fries were good. Ordered the baby lettuce salad and i kid you not, it was from a bag and completely wilted . I’m shocked they would serve that! We skipped desert. Then we had to track down a waiter to pay our bill. The bartender had no one at the bar and she accommodated us. I am not one to complain but I had to… This is the worst experience I’ve had in a restaurant. Go to pinstripes next-door much better food and service.

My boyfriend and I have eaten here a few times with family and by ourselves. We really love Belcampo! I have a nut allergy and they are always so accommodating and knowledgeable about the menu. I feel safe eating here, unlike many restaurants. I believe it’s their manager, who comes and greets and goes over the menu after I mention my allergies. I really appreciate their commitment to their customers. The food is great and so is the staff.

Food was quite good, but our server indicated that the food was all out when we were still missing fries. Then we discovered a sandwich was lacking the ordered bacon. They brought it out and indicated they make it right. I wasn’t sure what the later part meant. If you sit outside, you pay before the food comes. I am not sure if they adjusted the bill or just meant that they would get us the ordered bacon. Charred tomatoes on the breakfast bowl were raw (the person who ordered it only eats cooked tomatoes and could taste the raw tomatoes on the cauliflower rice even after removing the tomatoes). Burgers were cooked perfectly, which was very nice. Perhaps the kitchen is still a work in progress.

Having to order on a phone was difficult for older people and you don't have a waiter to answer any questions you have and you pay before you get your food and are charged a tip even though there you receive no service from staff. Drinks were small and weak. Hamburgers were dry and tasteless. Might as well order from Door Dash and save yourself the aggravation.

We had lunch on a hot Friday afternoon. It was not crowded as we sat outside. I had the keto burger and my companions had the Superman salad and lamb schwerma. Everyone thought her food was delicious and healthy. I did not love my keto bun, but that’s because it is a keto bun. The meat was very good though. Because it was a hot day, I really appreciated the staff refilling our waters and lemonades. I thought the service staff was friendly and attentive, which is a nice in these difficult times of staff shortages. The fries were also very good! I would definitely come back.

Ordered via the app for delivery countless times but first time eating in the restaurant itself. Modern and spacious indoor space with a lot of room for people with young children. Food was great/fresh. Service very friendly and attentive. Great addition to the "new" portion of the mall.

Solid alfresco dining, however, the QR code menu ordering system was a bit challenging as the menu is rather large. If you had not prepped beforehand, it is a lot of scrolling ;(

An older senior couple next to us, we noticed, were struggling, and eventually left. Super unfortunate.

Okay, well, I read up on the reviews and was also prepared for a less than stellar visit, however, with such low expectations, ended up satisfied;)

We both had dogs (beagles), so we ate on the dog friendly patio after I made reservations for Sunday Brunch (15Aug21) via OpenTable.

Saving grace that this restaurant is located AWAY from all the main big ones across the driveway (Shake Shack, Palette Tea House, Pinstripes, and the entrance to the food court). Quiet and cool with tons of shade provided by West Elm, whew. I know 78° is considered cool in some places, however, with all the concrete at Hillsdale Mall, it was a tad warm.

We ordered the:
Belcampo Burger $18.00: 1/2 LB Grass-Fed & Finished 28 Day Dry-Aged Belcampo Beef, White Cheddar, Caramelized Onion, Butter Lettuce, House Sauce. Served on a Brioche Bun. With Bacon $3 - Deeelicious and

Chicken Satay Salad $20.00: Grilled and Marinated Belcampo Pasture Raised Chicken, Roasted Peanuts, Carrots, Cucumbers, Cherry Tomatoes, Gem Lettuce, Shaved Cabbage, Peanut Dressing - perfectly dressed and generous portion.

Great service as the cute and friendly hostess happily gushed over the pair of our well-behaved beagles bringing out a large bowl of water for them to share ;) Thank you so much!

It is a bit pricey, however, the setting was delightful and food tasted well-made. Looking forward to coming back and trying other items on the menu.

The management could not have been nicer or more accommodating, but every single dish we had (among the three of us) was wrong, some more than others. For instance, someone ordered a scrambled egg and got a fried egg. Someone ordered a burger with no bun, and got a burger with a bun but no lettuce as requested. The kicker was that WE WERE THE ONLY PEOPLE IN THE RESTAURANT ON THIS SATURDAY LATE MORNING. I really want to like this place, but there were so many errors.

While the food was OK (good steak frites and passable shawarma), the service was execrable, culminating with the main courses arriving at 10-20 minutes interval and with 2 mistakes (wrong sauce and steak well done instead of rare).
At no point did the staff seem to understand the issue.

There was only one server for the whole restaurant. We had to wait 20 minutes when. We asked for more bread. I asked for my burger well done and it was not cooked. My husband ordered steak and frites and they brought him a burger and cold undercooked fries. My daughters chicken sandwich had no seasoning. The waitress was very understanding. I do feel bad for her having to work under those conditions. We were celebrating Father’s Day. We had a bad experience

Food is spectacular. Such an amazing inventive menu with a lot of great options for those who are making healthy dietary choices and those who want to indulge in great quality food as well. We started with tacos, deviled eggs, cornbread with smoked blackberry jam, and bone broth. You seriously can't go wrong with any one of them. Tacos change we had short rib the day we went in and they are delicious. Eggs are rich and creamy, and the cornbread is something I am still dreaming of. I do highly recommend the bone broth flavor is amazing and it's very good for you. If you love creamy mashed potatoes don't sleep on the potatoe puree highly indulgent but you won't be upset that you did after one bite. We had the keto brownie which was a perfect ending to an amazing dinner with friends.

We had an excellent time at Belcampo. My husband is a burger fan and he is picky about his burgers. He could not stop raving about how juicy and tasty the burger was. My chicken satay salad was a perfect mix of protein and greens. Very tasty dressing. Service was excellent, nice ambiance. They even have a little store where you can pick up a few things on the way home. We will be visiting again for sure.

We arrived on time for our reservation & the manager waved to us to sit wherever there were settings on a table. We got menus & ordered drinks, asked a few questions about the menu selections. The server took our order, helped us with what we wanted. After 15 minutes or so, we got the women's 2 orders. They were both barely warm but the men at the table said to go ahead & eat. After another 10 minutes, one order for a lamb burger came (on a bare plate but we knew that would happen). Another 15 minutes went by, the 4th person who hadn't been served waved over the manager who said the steak he ordered would be right out. Then another 10 minutes went by & finally the steak came out & it was on a bare plate. The 4th person was irate & had words with the manager who said the steak had been over cooked so they started all over. He could see diner #4 wasn't happy so he said he would comp the whole table. We walked out.

Food was good but spendy…. 4 deviled egg halves were $12 which was a little ridiculous. Entree meats come with nothing, no sides, absolutely nothing, like an old fashioned steakhouse but without the class, so value is definately sucky. Burgers are a bit better deal.

The Keto burger wasn't very good. The bun was tasteless and dry. The meat was was packed tight and no flavor.
The satay chicken salad greens were good--had to ask for more dressing to get more flavor--not worth the money.
