    Food was ok for the price .. I couldn’t believe that I paid $30 for rice and my husbands bourbon was an embarrassing pour .. the waitress rushed us out of there.. didn’t even sit down and she was already asking g for drinks appetizer and dinner all in one breath.. then gave us the bill and we thought we tipped and the owner came out and said was there something we said no and then he asked why didn’t we tip.. I have never had that happened. If there wasn’t so many things o probably would think they had an off night but for $350 I expected more .. not going back

    Hi Neighbor, My name is Greg and I co-own Camper. First and foremost, we are bummed to hear about your experience last night. We apologize for the shortcomings in our service and hospitality. We will speak with our team regarding your experience and promise to have these issues buttoned up on your next visit. Regarding tipping, I was not on the floor last evening and we would never impose upon you to tip; it is at your discretion and while it is welcome it is not expected. We truly apologize if there was any mix up originating from our end and hope you can chalk it up to an error of ours. With our respect and gratitude, we remain at your service. Sincerely Greg Carmel + Team Camper

    A lovely meal. The chef is super creative in the use of vegetables and original sauces. Nice selection of wines by the glass, which our server was happy to let me taste before ordering. Highly recommend the cauliflower starter and the chickpea risotto, which were quite exceptional. The baked cod however was a bit too salty. And we needed to order some bread to cleanse our palate afterwards. They did offer to remake the fish which was thoughtful, but it would have interrupted the flow of our dinner at that stage. That said, it was a great experience overall. And don’t skip the s’mores desert!

    Everything was SO delicious: the scallop crudo with peas, the tortelloni , the spaghetti w/Dungeness crab, the waygu hamburger and fries and the apple tart tatin. I think one cannot go wrong with dining at Camper and I look forward to trying the pizza on my next trip :)

    Hi Neighbor! Thank you for this sweet review. We are always changing and always working on new tasty and welcoming things here in this space; be it new dishes, seasonal updates on our cocktails, continuing to build out our patio(s) or the like. We hope we do get to show you more of our magic here again soon. Pizza is currently on hiatus @ the restaurant but we are toying with the idea of bringing it in once a week (Sundays) as sort of a popup with in our shop. It has always been well received but it is quite laborious so we only do it for special occasions right now. With our love, your friends @ Camper

    Really underwhelmed by this restaurant. Service was terrible, food was unremarkable, under-seasoned and overpriced. Not a whole lot of accommodation for dietary restrictions, no salads with protein and the only option to add was chicken. Some guests didnt get place settings for the duration of the meal. Drinks were never refilled. Took a very long time to get food.

    The reason it’s not 5 stars is that we waited quite a while after Checkin for our table. Ambience is nice & cozy. Our server greeted us with a big warm smile & the recommendations were good as it was our first time and we had out of town guests. Cornbread was excellent & the two pasta dishes were delicious. Dessert recommended to us was outstanding. Perfect dinner!!!

    Hi Anita, Thank you for dining with us on Saturday. We apologize for the wait for your table. The compounding challenges of the weather, an already busy evening and a large private event in the restaurant created a "perfect storm" of challenges and we are truly sorry that it created challenges in your time with us. We hope on a future visit you will find us better positioned to receive you and your guests and deliver on our hospitality. With our very best, Team Camper

    Camper continues to be one of my fave places to dine on the Peninsula! Seasonal vegetables and grass fed local meats perfectly prepared win every time. Greg's Steak (MR) alongside the 12-hour Rigatoni with Pork Ragu and Sourdough Breadcrumbs is my absolute fave combo here. DELISH. I look forward to trying the Charcoal-Stained Spaghetti with Dungeness Crab next time. Started with the Cast Iron Cornbread, which came with a delicious herb-honey butter...would've like the cornbread a little warmer, so the butter would melt. But yummy, nonetheless. Next time, I'll try the Sourdough Bread with the Homemade Ricotta. The Bourbon-heavy bar made it a MUST to order a Penicillin, with a Lagavulin float. The Japanese Old Fashioned with Akashi Japanese + Ume Whiskey and Yuzu Bitters was TOP NOTCH. Ended our meal with two desserts vs one...An oozy caramel sauce drizzled over a crunchy Canele cake topped with Vanilla ice cream AND the Smoked Smores with Burnet Meringue....Say no more! Lastly, the impeccable service (from the host to the bartender) along with the restaurant's rustic outdoorsy ambiance is 10 out of 10!!

    The food was just okay. I would say there wasn't much depth of flavor on the dishes. The dish the bothered me the most was the cornbread with compound butter. The butter was undersalted and we couldn't taste any flavor from it other than just butter. This seems like such an easy dish to get right that this was surprising. Overall, everything else was nice (service, ambience, decor), and it was easy to have a conversation (the restaurant wasn't too loud), but I would not come back given how expensive the food was when I thought it was just mediocre. I don't mind paying the amount I did here for other restaurants where I feel the dishes actually deliver.

    Hi Anne, This is Greg, chef/co-owner @ Camper. Thank you for taking the time to dine with us the other night. We are bummed to hear your feedback and are always striving to improve in the various sectors that we believe our little place has a duty of trying to perfect our craft in. We will take your feedback and taste back through with our team, obviously, seasoning is a subjective matter but I hope it goes without saying that my team would never settle for mediocrity. We work nearly around the clock to try to build a product and restaurant that feeds many, and hopefully satisfies. To that end, we'll always be here tinkering and trying to get better, and if you do decide to take another trip to Camper, we hope we stick more of our landings. Until then, safe travels!

    Food was good (ordered cornbread, fries, rigatoni and black spaghetti with crab, s'mores and the dessert with dulce la leche). The food was piping hot, tasty and the portions were quite big. The wait staff was attentive. Our water glasses were never below halfway--they kept filling them. We were celebrating my birthday and they gave us a free dessert! We never felt rushed and enjoyed our dinner immensely. We will be back!! Thank you for making my birthday dinner special!

    It’s so unfortunate to have to write a negative review. We discovered this restaurant close to a year ago and loved it. But we’ve been back a few times since and our experience just gets worse and worse. This was our last dinner at Camper. As far as the food, the salad was well dressed but not washed properly and the grit and sand made it inedible. My date’s pasta was fine but the sauce tasted like pure salt. As for the service .. what service? The host barely looked at us, the busboy slammed water glasses down on the table as we sat down and the waiter acted like he’d rather be anywhere else than serving. He wasn’t familiar with the menu, couldn’t be bothered to ask if enjoyed our meal, had zero interest in us all together At $300 for two, we could have enjoyed a fabulous meal at Bar Zola or Ettan in Palo Alto. Menlo Park could really use a nice restaurant- unfortunately, Camper isn’t it.

    Hi Neighbor, Thank you for dining with us this weekend and circling back to leave us this very generous feedback/review. These things move the needle for us significantly and give us a great opportunity to continue our efforts to grow and sculpt this little restaurant. In the New Year we will be retooling our dining areas and further, hopefully, cultivating a casual, cosy and relaxed space (and hopefully tuning down the "boisterousness" a bit). We hope we get to show you the fruits of those efforts soon :-) Until then, we bid you Happy Holidays ~~ Team Canteen

    Hi Mark, Thank you for joining us a few nights ago. We appreciate your support and business!! RE: pricing, we wanted to share that we have made every effort possible to strike balance between our value proposition as a restaurant and continuing to use high quality ingredients, paying our staff a competitive/survivable living wage, keep our space clean/heated/cooled/maintained/etc all while reeling from the impacts of continued, record price increases across every single one of our expense categories. While we know that dining with us is not the most inexpensive way to spend an evening we hope that the experience overall was satisfactory and positive for you and your guests. We hope we can continue to be here growing for the forseeable future!! With our best, Team Camper

    The experience at Camper was mixed. We were the first to arrive and they sat us at a table by the back door which seemed odd. But we were greeted by the waiter immediately and he took our order for drinks and appetizers. The cocktail menu had some great offerings but I thought the starters were unusual; they would be either complementary or sides at other restaurants (olives, bread, roasted cauliflower). We got the drinks and starters quickly and everything was very good. We ordered our main courses, but those took a very long time to come out. We were going to a concert so, unfortunately, we didn't have time to enjoy the full meal. My husband and I split the half chicken, and our friends ordered the fish. The chicken was excellent but it should be for $42 for a half roasted chicken!!! Our friends felt that the fish was OK. All in all, we will go back and give it another try. I liked the ambiance and there were definitely some good aspects, but they need to hit on all cylinders especially at those prices.

    Hi Neighbor, Thank you for dining with us last week. We appreciate your feedback and hope you will chalk our timing issues up to us traversing a very busy Holiday season. We work every day to hopefully prepare and execute a meal experience that is satisfying and satiating in addition to being welcoming and friendly. None of these are one-sized-fits-all tasks but we do hope that on a future visit we are able to connect more dots than it sounds we did on this evening. We wish you our best and send you our best wishes for a Happy Holiday season. We remain at your service. Sincerely, Team Camper

    Really good experience with a large group. We had a big table to ourselves at the front of the restaurant. Food and service were both great.

    Hi Neighbor!! We are so so so happy to hear you enjoyed yourselves at our communal table (a gorgeous Pistache Parsons table made by Luke Bartels of the Woodshop in San Francisco, in case you were wondering). We spent a solid three years during the pandemic hoping we would get the opportunity to be face to face again and we are so grateful for the opportunity to return to some modicum of "normalcy". We hope in the future, when the need for a special evening arises, we will get the opportunity to host you and your guests once again!! With our best, Team Camper

    A staple in our Downtown Menlo cuisine, and a cocktail menu that saves me a trip into the city.

    Camper is amazing and we have always enjoyed the dinner and beverages there. The seasonal menu highlights the incredible foods of Northern California and unique cocktails makes for a lovely evening. We will definitely be back

    The food and service are excellent here. The biggest problem is the noise level. It’s very hard to have a conversation and hear without speaking very loudly, and even then the noise level is deafening! My husband and I will not be coming here with friends anymore. We will only dine by ourselves until the weather is warm enough to sit outside.

    Hi Neighbor, Thank you for taking the time to join us a few days ago. We are sincerely grateful for your business and take your feedback very much to heart. We have tried several sound dampening measures but the fact remains that a busy, crowded, convivial space can get loud and we are only sorry we havent had more luck on the control of that. We do look forward to getting to dine again outside (we actually do set our patio nightly with high power propane and electric heaters). Regardless, we look forward to cooking for you again very soon. Sincerely, Team Camper!!

    We had a great experience. We sat outside under the covered patio which was cozy since it rained on and off but we were completely dry. They had cute bistro lights strung up and space heaters on. The drinks and food were delicious. Especially the autumn sangria and the pastas.

    Recommended. Great food and delicious cocktails that were a bit unique. Very friendly service. Sat outside. A bit of street noise, but still easy to converse. Warm heating lamps kept us comfortable. Inside looked fun, but seemed a bit noisier.
