    Had heard good things about this place and the menu looked good. This place did not disappoint. The service was top notch, the ambiance was warm especially during a rainy night. The Brussels sprouts were delicious. Great accompaniment to some drinks. The cornbread is soft, crispy, and creamy and the butter just elevates it. Tried the rock cod for the entree which was delicate, flaky and perfectly cooked. The s’mores dessert was the perfect end!

    We chose to sit outside on the patio since it is quieter and the heaters kept us warm. For our group of 5 we started with the oysters, the cornbread with herb butter, burrata and crispy Brussels sprouts. All of them were so so good! Entrees were the charcoal stained spaghetti with crab ( delicious!) the crusted cod, the cheeseburger and the fried rice, along with a side order of their homemade bread. It is so rare to eat at a restaurant and have everyone think their food was amazing, but that is what we all felt last night. Our waitress was incredible as well. Thank you Camper for a special evening!

    The squash pasta was outstanding, but the chickpea pansisse was dry and not very interesting. The Bulli cocktail is great for those who love a "spirit forward" drink. Very good service.

    My friends and I met at Camper to celebrate three birthdays and the holiday. We wanted to take this opportunity to let your family of servers, chefs and team know that we had a great time! The drinks, starters, appetizers, pastas/entrees were so delicious! Most notably, the Honeynut Squash Agnolotti and Sesame Crusted Rock Cod were amazing that we wanted personally meet the chefs! Victor was such a wonderful waiter who took care of our special dinner! Thank you thank you - we will be coming back soon. Have a lovely Holiday to your team.

    One cannot help but being a Happy Camper here on weekend mornings, especially if you love bacon! The brunch menu guarantees happiness whether you are intent on carb loading, green building or protein packing. Love the eggs Benedict with slightly spicy and lemony Hollandaise on biscuit toast! Our server told us to order the French toast next time.

    We had a wonderful meal here. All three of us enjoyed our entrees: Vera Cruz fish, smoked chicken, and the tritip. Our starters were excellent too: Brussels sprouts and the market pickles. Desserts were good but not spectacular. Service was excellent. We had a wonderful meal and dining experience.

    This restaurant is a great find. We went with very little information and had a great meal here. The only thing, if you can call it a thing, is that the hard surfaces mean it was a little noisy but just a bit more than we prefer.

    CAMPERResponded on December 2, 2022Hi Neighbor!! Thank you for taking a shot in the dark on us, we are very glad to hear you enjoyed yourself!! We hear you (no pun intended) on the interior volume at night these days, we are looking forward again to opening our windows and lowering the density in our dining room when the weather allows (it makes for a more pleasant experience but is unfortunately hampered for a few months a year). Have a Happy Holidays, from your new friends @ Camper

    I was looking so forward to this.. our last two times had been excellent and so tasty. This time though it seemed off. Hardly anyone there at 5:30, had to flag down a waiter to ask for a cocktail, and twice for boxes..The menu had changed. Our favorites gone. The Petaluma chicken just ok. The steak very small. (I know meat prices are through the roof)..and it was freezing! The back door was open for the outside diners. need to fix that . Really not fun eating in a overcoat.. not sure we will be back. Maybe give it a try again in Spring. would we recommend.. Maybe..I hate that they give us a yes or no!!!

    Excellent food and cocktails that you won't find anywhere else. Tons of infrared heaters that keep the outside space super comfortable. I've been several times with large and small groups and everyone is always happy they went.

    CAMPERResponded on November 14, 2022Hi Kathy! Thank you for joining us last weekend. Yes! We do things a little differently here but we think it's the kind of special gestures that make this place a destination and worthy of a special night out (or even a meeting place for colleagues and co-workers). We hope we get to keep setting the bar higher and satisfying you and your friends! Cheers ~~ Team Camper

    It’s like Camper is trying too hard. The menu is limited with few options for anyone desiring a simple, safe go-to. Even the cheeseburger has sauces that didn’t appeal to the one person in our party who ordered it. Only one of the four in our party thought their entree was special. The service was friendly, but slow and the noise made it almost impossible to hear across the table. All in all our experience was OK, but with the array of dining choices nearby, Camper will not be high on our list.
