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.
Another trip here and another wonderful experience. We were able to sit outside on a hot evening. Food was wonderful! My ribeye was a little late coming and the great manager gave me a heads up and comped me a salad while I waited.
We sat outside which is self service
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.
Our waitress and manager were awesome! The took care of every detail and question. The manager even gave us dessert! They seemed genuinely happy that we were there. The food was excellent. Looking forward to returning.
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.
Sent back the steak. Very chewy.
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.
Everything was great, just steak was over cocked. But they are usually very good so I will go there again. Food is amazing anyway.
Hello, We appreciate you joining us and apologize for your overcooked steak. If the next time you dine with us and anything isn't right with your meal please ask your Server to have the Manager to by so we can address the dish and make things right. Andre'
My first visit here was good, but this time it seemed like they were very short staffed.
Hi LisaK, Thank You for joining us. We are definitely challenged by the lack of available staff. We look forward to being better staffed on your next visit so we can create w better experience for you and your Family. Andre'
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.
Swankie, Thank You for taking the time to give us a review. We're really glad you liked the service. If you dine with us in the future and you are any of your guests do not like their dishes please ask for a Manager to come to the table so we can address their dish and ensure that they leave having a wonderful experience. Thank You Andre'
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. :)
Hi MichelleZ, Thank You for your kind review! We;re really glad you and your Family were able to Celebrate with us. The ext time you dine with us please ask for me so I can stop by and Thank You in person. Have A Great Day Andre'
Fantastic service. Quality food.
We had the chili (amazing!) and Tom Ka soup. A light meal with a beer but plan to return for a burger and tail fries soon… they smelled amazing.
Manager is so friendly and knowledgeable.
Hey Courster2020, We Thank You for joining us and appreciate you enjoyed our food and service. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Have A Great Day Andre'
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!
We’re so happy to have Bel Campo back as our go to place. Congratulations on the reopening! It was good to see Andre and staff again and to enjoy the patio and the delicious food and cocktails.
Andre, the manager took great care of us. Our only complaint was that there was a broken stall in the restroom. Other than that, the food was delicious and the service was excellent.
Birthday - excellent service!
Really love their salads and animal fries. I wish more people were visiting. Their service is top notch. Great drinks.
Hi RosanneF, We're really glad you enjoyed our drinks and service and appreciate you giving us a review. We look forward to the next time you're able to dine with us. Andre'
I made the reservation but when we got there it was closed!!! WTH!!! Unacceptable!!!
This restaurant is CLOSED, but Open Table allowed me to make a reservation and when we got there nobody was there! Terrible. It was my son’s birthday so we had to scramble to find a new place to eat. We ended up at Pinstripes next door, thank goodness they had a table open for dinner.
The restaurant was closed even though open table let me make a reservation. Made a fun first day with someone when the place was closed.
The place is closed and OpenTable let me book a b'day party at the location!! OpenTable needs to do a better job of keeping their information up to date.
The place was closed even though we were able to make reservations through open table.
Closed! Had a reservation and the place is closed.
Staff was very attentive and friendly. Food came quickly
Conway, Thank You for dining with us, we look forward to seeing you next time. Andre'
Great service and great atmosphere! would recommend for lunch!
bubblesz123, We really appreciate you joining us and can't wait to see you in for dinner next time. Stay safe and enjoy the holidays. Andre'
Great job adopting the Covid precautions. We especially enjoy eating on the patio, and have been back many times. The way the patio is setup gives you a feeling of normalcy during the pandemic. Excellent food (great burgers!) and fancy space heaters.
Dr. Lainey, Thank You for supporting our restaurant. We can't wait to take care of you on the patio once these Covid restrictions are lifted. Stay safe and have a wonderful Holiday Season. Andre'
We love this place and especially its manager Andre! Great food, great service and a safe environment outdoors :-)
Hi Kendall, Thanks for the Shout Out! We look forward to seeing you again soon. Have A Safe Holiday Season Andre'
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.
Once again, Bel Campo provided an exceptionally delicious dining experience with outstanding service.
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.
Had the belcampo burger. Absolutely delicious! Best tasting burger I've had in along time. The portion size is on the smaller side which I prefer and the in is brioche. Fries alittle disappointing. Not hot or crispy enough but since the burger was so good I forgave
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!
Hi Victoria, Please tell your son our Team sends our Congratulations on graduating from Nursing School. I'm really glad you enjoyed your experience and look forward to taking care of your family again. Thank You For Supporting Us Andre'
This was my first in restaurant dining experience here. What a treat it was. I highly recommend the bone broth. So flavorful and the accompaning sauces add additional vibrancy. The deviled eggs were so full of flavor as well. I enjoyed the cobb salad with chicken. You can tell that every aspect of this menu and the items included are presented thoughtfully. Won't be the last time we come.
SIW713, Thank You for bringing in your friends & family to dine with us. We can't wait for you to join us for another experience. Have Fun & Stay Safe Andre'
The food at Bel Campo is beyond compare. The quality of the meats, the freshness of the salads, and the food ideas with new additions to the menu and cocktails keeps it fun and exciting. Check out the new charcuterie platter! Andre the manager and his wait staff are personable, making you feel at home as if you're dining with friends. They care about the food AND the experience of dining with them. I'm so thrilled they're in San Mateo now.
GoGoGirl, It was such a pleasure taking care of you. Thank You for supporting us! The next time you come in please ask for me to stop by as I'd like to send you one of the 'Butcher's Bites' that everyone may not know about. We Look Forward To Seeing You Again Andre'
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.
Hello, On behalf of our entire Team I'd like to apologize that you received slow service. If you decide to visit again, and something is not up to the standards they should be, please let the manager on duty know so they can address the situation prior to you leaving. This way we can ensure you have the best experience possible. Have A Wonderful Day Andre'
Great food. Great seating options. Great staff!!!!
LoveFood, Thank You for enjoying your experience with us. We look forward to seeing you in the future. Best Regards Andre'
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.
GADinator, I really appreciate your thoughts on the ambiance and quality of our Grass Fed & Finished Steaks. Your feedback is invaluable as we grow our restaurant. Thank You Supporting Belcampo Andre'
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.
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.
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.
Hello, I really appreciate you allowing us to take care of you after we dropped the ball and ignored you and your guest once you were seated. Thank You for taking the time to share feedback of your experience. I'm really glad you enjoyed your service on our patio and wanted to let you know we've finally added appetizers on the menu. The next time you join us I'd definitely try our Charcuterie Board or Braised Beef Tacos as they are both phenomenal. We Look Forward To Seeing You Again Andre'
