Everything was good but grilled oysters, charred broccoli, crudo, brisket, and of course the s’mores were outstanding . Great service. Our waitress was training but she and the rest of the waitstaff provided exceptional service. The mock tail with passion fruit juice and Tajin on the rim was really good too if your looking for something non alcoholic.

We had a reservation for 5:15pm and they were not able to accommodate a better table for us, so we could not enjoy much of the ambience. Although the food was good, the menu was pretty limited.

Perfect dining experience - again! We had high expectations after having our first date here 2 years ago. We finally made it back and it was well worth the wait. The broccoli is sublime and we will always order it. What a beautiful meal and night at Campfire!

The food and service were both exceptional. Staff called to confirm the reservation earlier in the day. The table was ready 10 minutes early. Natalia, the manager, was personable, knowledgeable, and made everyone at the table feel comfortable. The wait staff from our waitress to the food runners were also fabulous. A lot of times the “highest rated” restaurant isn’t the best. However, in this case Campfire earns both titles.

Service is awesome. Inside it’s pretty loud so it’s hard to have a conversation. Tables are still pretty close so if you’re not comfortable dining out that’s something to consider. Food was delicious but the portions are pretty small on the appetizers so the value isn’t great. The veggies and the mains were fabulous.

We absolutely LOVED our dinner at Campfire. I had been wanting to visit for the longest time as soon as they opened, and finally got reservations for a special occassion, my fiance and my two year anniversary and my parents visiting from out of state. The experience from start to finish was top-notch. I wasn't expecting the level of service and food quality that we experienced - WOW! We were seated right away at our reservation time, and had multiple servers serving us. Each time they brought something, they would explain what was included so professionally. It didn't feel pretentious at all, like you normally see at restaurants that have this fanciness-level, but instead very comfortable. The decor was beautiful, the food was insane, and my parents loved it. They even had a happy anniversary card for my fiance and I, signed by a bunch of their staff. Wow - just wow! Will be back!!

The food was outstanding. Best meal in the area and great service and friendly. We were celebrating a birthday and everyone wished 'happy birthday' with kindness (and not dramatic singing). It was so wonderful. Had the brisket which was great. Tender and tasty, well presented.

The whole entire staff was SO friendly and quick! It was my first time at Campfire and it did not disappoint. The waiter explained every dish as he brought it out, and was super attentive to our needs. Not to mention the ambience of the restaurant is so cozy and makes you feel like you're luxury camping. Will definitely return!

Our experience was fantastic! This was our anniversary and first time away from our new baby. The staff was very welcoming and all knew it was our anniversary. Our server was helpful and attentive but still gave us space as well.
The food was amazing as well as the restaurant.
We will be coming back and recommending to others.

We love Campfire! Great service and exceptional food and drink. We ordered the Brisket, Barramundi, and Chicken entrees. They were all amazing! Perfectly cooked and melt in the mouth! The cocktails are amazingly inventive too!

Love that their menu is seasonal and always different when we visit. The cocktails are all super unique and delicious! Every dish we tried was delicious, with the smokey flame flavor and the accompanying veggies adding the perfect touch of acidity. The apple butter panna cotta was the best ending to an amazing dinner!

The food and cocktails were amazing!! I had the oysters, fish market and the s'mores! The server was kind and knowledgeable about the food and cocktails. I was looking for a refreshing cocktail and she had a great suggestion that wasn't on their seasonal cocktail list. I was dining alone but between the atmosphere and the service I had a great time. They even half the price of the s'mores dessert (meant for two) because I only wanted/needed only one s'mores! Will definitely be coming back here when visiting San Diego again!

My experience at campfire was excellent. The atmosphere that they’ve created is warm and inviting. The food was incredible. Perfectly salted butter, incredibly creamy carrots, and impossibly tender brisket- it was some of the best food I’ve had. Keep up the great work!

Food and cocktails were amazing! We got the broccoli and eggplant as sides and they were both so yummy, but the broc was our favorite. Pork chops were so flavorful and cooked to perfection. The brisket was tender and delicious. Would love to come back here with friends to share food.

The restaurant is pretty dimly lit - if you have trouble seeing bring glasses or use your phone light! Service was great, a little slow but very conscious of guests’ dietary needs and everything was served in order. Recommend getting a few vegetables and sharing; the oysters were also fantastic. S’mores are a must!

I thought it was fun and the food was great, the only thing was that they sat us as close to the pre kitchen windows as possible and there were huge strong bright lights in our faces the entire time. Every other table seemed lit nice and moody though, so just be sure to stay away from that table.

Second dinner here. The first time was disappointing so we came back, as we’ve heard great things. The highlight: craft cocktails. The lowlight: long waits for food and drinks—as before. Very expensive; we’d expect better. Friendly, knowledgeable table service. Quite a mixed experience both times. We won’t be back.

We were a party of 7, including 2 kids. We had special dietary restrictions and the staff was more than accommodating, frequently checking in, and answered all questions with courtesy and a smile. The food is stellar, every dish was a new burst of flavor leaving us wanting for more. We basically ordered the entire menu just to try it all and it didn’t disappoint! The rustic porch ambience was perfect for the kids as we were next to a fire and they enjoyed eating on a picnic bench. I also didn’t have to worry about the noise level in this case. Thank you for being the highlight of our trip! We look forward to eating there again.

There was no shortage of food. All of it was delicious. Most of us couldn’t eat our entree when it came. The s’mores at the end were an experience to remember. We all were so happy with our choice!
We would highly recommend the group experience!
