Campfire is always a go too for any special occasion, really enjoyed how the whole campfire team works together to give the best service to all the customers. Broccoli is always a must to order!

Very nice casual restaurant in Carlsbad. Loved the charred broccoli and the porridge bread. Some very cool drinks on the menu.

Delicious food, uniquely prepared, left us talking about it for days. Our favs were the roasted broccoli, grilled half chicken and s'mores. The venue was fun and relaxed. We had a great time and appreciated the attentive service.

Wow. Campfire hit it out of the park. I’ve heard about this place from so many people and finally had a chance to go. The food was insanely flavortown and the drinks were out of this world. I’m not even sure I know the words to describe! We brought my dog and not only were they so sweet to accommodate him but the brought him a bed and water bowl 😍

Went for brunch. We reserved in advance and had asked for a shady table. When we arrived, we reiterated that we needed to be in the shade. The hostess seemed annoyed with us and showed to a table that was only partially shaded. Our server and the buser were great but they seemed to have too many tables to handle. It took awhile for the server to return to our table. Although we wanted a leisurely brunch, we had to wait too long to order. The food was very good, but brunch menu is very limited.

Great atmosphere, manager Matt is great. They seasonally change the menu and the roasted broccoli was so amazing. We ordered everything on the menu, standouts to me were green bean salad, tomato salad and the steak. They do team service, which is good and bad-who are we talking to? When you ask everyone is accommodating but getting our entree order took a long time and kept us out a bit later than desired. I personally am not a s’mores fan, but Campfire’s take was delicious and a memorable experience, homemade chocolate ganache(?) square and wonderful ginger snap cookies make a worthy splurge.

The food is delicious, full of flavors found only at Campfire. The roasted broccoli and the seabass included exotic ingredients like chermoula, fregola and Chinese sausage.

There is new sidewalk dining with a nice ambience. We will be back.

I absolutely love Campfire. My server Ethan was impeccable. Even the food runner John was super friendly and knowledgeable. My favorite thing to do at Camp is give my server/ bartender a type of alcohol and give them creative liberties with the drink. They always turn out incredible. I had an amazing rum drink- wish I remembered what it was so they could make it again! I did want a table outside and even requested it in the reservation, however the table they had planned for us was being hogged by some middle age moms on a COVID GNO so I can't blame them. We loved the inside and the food was delicious as always.

As with a lot of places, the menu is limited and our family's two favorite (the tomahawk style steak and the pork chop) are both off the menu as well as the salad we all love. The broccoli is still on the menu and it's delicious. We also tried the appetizer of what I think was wontons in a beef broth. Both the wontons and the beef broth were outstanding. There's only three entree choices and we tried all three in our party of six. The chicken was really tender and good; the steak and the seabass were just okay. I can't wait for the full menu to return as we love this restaurant.

Menu is only 3 entrees now, no vegetarian/vegan option, and then 1 of the 3 entrees (Seabass) was sold out. For the amount of money you are spending it would be nice to have more than two options for your dinner. In the past ive loved campfire been many times unfortunately the menu was disappointing besides the broccoli of course.
We had the two entree options which were chicken and Waygu. The chicken was very good. The waygu was very disappointing, it was the correct Temperatur but the char on the outside was really all you could taste.
I hope they revamp the menu to more similar to how it was before Covid.
Cocktails were great. And all very well balanced.

Will be coming back here as often as I possibly can.

I was there to celebrate my niece’s 18 th birthday. Our server Rebecca was amazing!!! She took the time to explain the menu (which can be intimidating) and convinced us to try the tasting menu..I was so happy she did as everything she suggested was
Delicious!
Rebecca was extremely professional and kind. I would say that she made our evening one to remember!

We had a great experience at Campfire! The mixed drinks were spot on and we allowed the watress to choose our menu plates for the "Campfire Feast' for six people. The food was outstanding and Chef did an excellent display of delicious plates!

Campfire is the best restaurant in Carlsbad in my humble opinion!

Thanks, Steve
