The food was interesting but the quantity was very small for the pricing. Found a living bug in the peach/potato salad.

The menu look slightly confusing but the server explain it beautifully and while the items looked like a random assortment of ingredients…. They all blended together perfectly. Highly suggest the “peaches” with the “flat iron”

I was excited because I heard so many great things about the restaurant. We were seated right away, but despite making (birthday celebration) reservations a month in advance, we were seated at a noisy/busy table close to the kitchen entrance and in the middle of the route to the bathrooms. Drink orders were taken quickly but took around 12 minutes to be delivered - so much time that all of us were searching for our waitress (who couldn't be spotted). They must have been under staffed. When the drinks finally arrived, we put in our dinner order and requested everything be brought all at once. The food also took a long time to come out so we requested the check and didn't order desert. Everyone loved their meal, but the entire dinner took 90 minutes (for 4 us -no appetizers or deserts ordered). Too long, as we were late to our next engagement.

The food was amazing and beautiful. Service was also quite terrific. My only negative May be that they don’t have a vegetarian entree, just several appetizers / sides that are vegetarian. That said I will definitely return.

Beautiful space, great service, but the food didn’t quite match up to the surroundings. The chicken and fish were much too smokey. The pistachio dip was much too salty. S’mores were delightful though :)

Great concept incorporating excellent ingredients and creative combinations. The fire cooked menu’s variety has something for everyone. The broccoli and heirloom beans could stand on their own as a meal but adding seafood appetizers and protein entrees nearly complete the experience. The craft cocktails and s’mores dessert are the bookends to a wonderful dining experience.?

In a word this dining experience is fun! our waitress was attentive and did not rush us through the meal. The drink menu was innovative and tasty. The mixologist is to be commended. The menu was also unique and the grilling was perfect. The sear on the skin of the corvina was perfect. The pork chop was a great blend of smokey and sweet flavors. The s’mores desert with a mini charcoal pot and a homemade marshmallow to toast was a great finish to the meal. Campfire is highly recommended!

Incredible food that somehow made you feel you were at the most bougie camping trip. There was subtle campfire flavors in the food and it was amazing. Service was impeccable and i think they can really try to get SD’s second Michelin star.

Had a family dinner with my husband and 4 y.o
daughter. It's a fun setting and kid friendly - also covid friendly with lots of open air flow even indoors. Kids meal was fabulous and well rounded. My meal (pork chop) was excellent with a well paired class of wine. It would have been a 5 star experience all around except that my husband's steak came out rare when he requested medium and our waitress was nonchalant to the point of rudeness. Everyone else was quick to help but she didn't even apologize. Poor form.

From the moment we walked in, I knew this was going to be an awesome experience. I can’t get over how friendly the staff is. Every single person we interacted with was so informative about the dishes, helpful with any questions, but most importantly the genuineness you could feel from each person was just amazing. Now as for the food-W O W. We were completely blown away by everything. There are no words to describe the flavors that burst from within. Each bite had me throwing myself back into my seat as I was just in awe by the each plate. The Star of the night was the lamb belly and I’m pretty sure I had dreams of eating it that night. Campfire thank you for an incredible & definitely unforgettable dining experience. I can’t wait to share this special place with so many more people!

Staff was very nice. Acknowledged our anniversary when we first checked in, had a card hand-signed by employees on our table & server also acknowledged anniversary. Ordered lambs head but did not expect the actual head/eyeball/brains of the lamb. Felt that server should have pointed that out since she knew new were 1st timers. Food was very tasty & attractively presented but, except for the outstanding broccoli (best I've ever had), portions were small for the price.
Restaurant was very loud and felt that tables were too close considering we are still in a pandemic.
