Why we love it

Executive chef: Eric Bost

  • Award icon

    MICHELIN Plate

    2022

This massive open-flame restaurant charmed diners with fire pits, a wall decorated with camping gear, and warm communal vibes when it opened in 2016. It still has powerhouse status thanks to an excellent craft cocktail program and seasonal wood-fired masterpieces, which could include fire-roasted octopus with green harissa or smoked coffee-rubbed brisket.

    Atmosphere is nice and friendly. Food was well cooked but the combination of flavors was somewhat complex and didnt do much for me. If you go, plan to be there for quite some time. Probably a better suited location for a relaxed night out with drinks rather than solely there for a meal. Just my opinion.....

    Didn’t like our table we were outside by ourselves. Food was just ok. $8 for one shrimp. Cocktails were just ok. My second time here and I liked it much better the first time.

    We were greeted warmly as we arrived and it kept getting better from there. Cynthia and Jaiden went out of their way to make it a memorable experience. Everything was spectacular; the decor, attention to details, flavors of food, and warm kind service. The food was so delicious! Signature broccoli didn’t disappoint. Crudo and Halibut also off the charts good.

    My girlfriend and I had such a wonderful night. We came for our anniversary and everyone was so sweet and went above and beyond. Not to mention the food was absolutely incredible. We will definitely be going back!

    We really wanted this dining experience to be great. The ambiance had a great vibe and the wait person, Sarah, was superb. But, sadly it was not a positive culinary experience. This is one of those menus that does not give the diner information beyond ingredients. "Broccoli" was tasty but who knew it was an entire head of Broccoli, enough for 4 persons. "Buratta" was barely lukewarm with uninspired vegetables. The smoked chicken was definitely undercooked rubbery consistency, basically inedible. The staff responded well to us and couldn't have been more pleasant. Maybe it was an off night but based on our experience we could not recommend Campfire
