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.

Very good service but terrible food. Chicken in Cobb Salad was ice cold and the salad was over salted — whole thing was inedible! I asked why I got frozen chicken salad and that is way they serve it.
Not a showcase for their meats?
My friend ordered Philly Cheese steak and it was super tough and unadorned except for cheese. No pepper or onion and very small.
Sad because it is a pretty spot.

I just got a new job and so my family and I went out to celebrate by having dinner at the Hillsdale location in San Mateo on Friday, May 14 at 6pm. I know that the pandemic has turned so much upside down for restaurants. I know that staffing is a challenge. The good news the Hillsdale restaurant was packed. The bad news the house team was not staffed for such a busy night. The absolutely great news. The Belcampo house team handled it spectacularly! We watched as your managers hosted and bartended while your single bus boy and server managed all of the tables. And they did it all with grace and smiles. Yes, it took a bit longer than expected, but that's ok, they were doing their absolute best. Our food was delicious and the service was fantastic albeit delayed for very understandable reasons. When our server told us that she was the only server, I wanted to get up and help her because the restaurant was packed. A big huge shout out to the team who was working BelCampo at Hillsdale last night! We will be back. :)

Strange assortment of entrees, concept of farm to table does not translate with the current menu. Price point is to high for salads and entrees. They need to improve with proper entree, appetizers and combo plates if they are to succeed in this competitive industry. Work in progress!

Staff members - hostess + bartender + manager were sitting at the bar drinking and eating (with napkin in shirt as a bib) when we checked in. Food was sub par. My friend and I split the chicken avocado sandwich which was all bread, 2 small slices of avocado and no chicken. The fries were good. Decor was confused with the menu. Overpriced meets farmhouse.

We ordered burgers and the lamb burger was good, really enjoyed the flavors. But the other 2 burgers were just ok and nothing special. If you want to try something other than a beef burger, this is your place. Service was excellent, friendly, attentive and professional—not overbearing. Shared Dessert—chocolate chip cookie and 2 scoops of ice cream—nice choice. Good ambience, tables spaced out well.

We had just recently dined at this restaurant and could not wait to return. The staff is top notch and the food is culinarily amazing. You can never go wrong with the bone broth as a starter, accompaniment or main course. It is so rich and flavorful. Such clean flavors. Also a must try is the lamb burger. Well seasoned and simply dressed. It's like the perfect little black dress we girls need in our closet. Highly recommend.

The Manager and our Server at Belcampo went out to their way to accommodate our group, consisting of two households celebrating a family graduation, with two dogs, outside on their lovely, warm patio. We were cancelled with only 3 hours notice by the restaurant across the street, Paul Martin, and had to scramble in order to have our socially distanced celebration. Belcampo took very good care of us, we had plenty of time and space to celebrate, the steaks were fantastic and the drinks menu very complete; even a special menu for our pups! We highly recommend them!

We were seated 20 min after our reservation. Our food took much too long to arrive (particularly during a workday lunch) and the manager was terse and short Tempered, offering no apology for the slow service. To top it off, the $20 burgers were soggy and very disappointing. We ended up throwing most of the meal away—will definitely not return. We’ve dined several times in Marin and we were excited for this outpost but they are understaffed and if they can’t keep up now, I can’t imagine how poor the experience will be during “normal” times.

After a couple of takeout dinners from here (with mixed results), finally got to dine in and see if the food lives up to the hype.

The atmosphere is very utilitarian and noise echos a lot off the hard walls and floor. Service was attentive and timely.

We had the Steak Frites and a Prime NY steak with the whipped potatoes with grass fed butter. The Steak Frites was good but the NY was tough (even tho cooked to a perfect medium rare. The star of the night was the whipped potatoes which were AWESOME.

At $30-50 per plate, it’s not worth it. I can get a better steak, with 2 sides, for $10 less at an restaurant with a better ambiance down “Town” in San Carlos or in Downtown San Mateo. And if I’m craving a burger, the burger and shake shack across the plaza is where I’ll go.

We made reservations for 2 @ 6:30pm and arrived 5 mins early. We requested an inside table because it was a little cold outside. We were seated immediately. Hostess took us to the back (see pics). We were the only table there. No one came to take our drinks or food order. No one came by to say hello. At one point I raised my hand but still nothing. After 20 minutes, we walked back up to the hostess and asked if we could sit outside with everyone else since we hadn't been helped. She apologized and again seated us immediately. From there, everything was fine.

Our menu didn't have appetizers but there was a sides section.

Food
Steak frites with carrots
Belcampo burger with animal fat fries

Steak and carrots were cooked perfectly. Highly recommend. Burger was a bit bland but the fries were delish.

Drinks
Moscow Mule
Pilsner beer

Manager comp our drinks because of the mixup. He also gave us a broth tasting. Both broth were delicious but the chicken broth was phenomenal.

The ambiance was perfect for a cool crisp night.

Loved everything but the mishap at the beginning. Don't be the only table inside is our recommendation. I don't think the server knew we were there because the servers outside were fabulous.
