Matthew greeted us, took us to our table and engaged in beyond your standard chit chat. He and our waiter took time to introduce us to the menu - not standard and full of question marks. But who cares when the everything you order is exceptional. The space is aesthetically pleasing. My wife loved her Black Aloe cocktail. And the broccoli is expertly and unusually cooked. The flavors of sauces and spices are beautifully balanced. And, since this was our first meal out since March 13, we felt the staff had our experience and health front of mind. Even down to the touchless payment process. Why didn’t we do this years ago?

Great food, ambiance, drinks and staff make this a terrific restaurant. The “campfire feast” was a great hit for the six of us.

Can’t wait for them to be open normally again but until then this is our “go-to” favorite. Happy Trails and don’t burn yourself on those s’more coals.😉

Typically stop here on the way to San Diego, because the restaurants are fantastic in Carlsbad. This is a second visit to Campfire and it was better than the last time. The hostess was kind and welcoming, the smell of campfire was in the air, the waiter was attentive and knowledgeable and the food and drinks were fantastic. They pared down the menu due to COVID, and are using hyper local produce- The end result was a unique and inspired menu - very well done. The only negative, I wish this was closer to home!

Everything from the service, the cleanliness, the polite staff, always having a full water glass, and fantastic herbs, spices, seasonings in the food, and the unique dishes, make this the place to be! We have eaten there at least once a week for 56 weeks excluding the time it was shut down during Covid!!! BOOM!

So glad to help support this restaurant. The food/menu NEVER disappoints, chefs are always tweaking the menu. The food is delicious and unique, you won’t be making it at home! It’s what eating out should be, craft cocktails through dessert (S’mores).

Great meal, so inventive and creative. The portion sizes were perfect, and my meal was cooked to perfection. My friend’s beef was a bit too rare for her and our server didn’t come back for a while so she skipped eating it. If the server paid a bit more attention to us, it would have been a five star rating all around - you need to check in after each course is served. They had us seated away from others so there wasn’t even a way to flag someone down. The food is outstanding here- so glad we tried it.

Campfire never disappoints. Food is so unique and delicious. They have amazing chefs and bartenders as well. The service is great too. I forgot the name of our server but he had curly black hair. He was so hospitable and knowledgeable. Thank you to everyone at campfire for delivering a wonderful experience even during a pandemic.

it has been my best meal I have had this year so far. All my dishes have no lack of flavoring and you could tell the passion and the effort they put into each single dish. The servers were very knowledgeable of every thing on the menu and very polite.

No doubt will be back to wood fire restaurant, even though we drove all the way from Temecula.

We were treated to a beautiful birthday dinner celebration while visiting from out-of-town. The food was incredible - elevated, Michelin-level, excellent preparation and presentation, great flavor profiles. The service was impeccable - warm, friendly, professional, and prompt. The atmosphere was awesome - hip, fashionable, trendy, accommodating, and social. We brought the family Golden Retriever, who was given a bowl of water and even a dog bed to lay on while we dined! The reason we chose Campfire was for the s'mores - great way to end an exceptional meal with an interactive experience and handmade treats! Would recommend Campfire to anyone in North County looking for an elevated dining experience.

Food was delicious and so fresh tasting. We loved the chicken and fish and had a great green bean starter. The server was really sweet and everyone was attentive and wearing masks. We were very far away from other diners (and obviously outdoors) so our first dining out experience in months felt really safe. Highly recommend for a romantic dinner!

If we are going to go on a date night or to celebrate something, this is our go to restaurant! Get a sitter and make it a date night if you have kids. Service, quality of food, ambience, ect. Is always on point! Even during covid with only the patio open due to state regulations the experience was still great! Get the burnt broccoli and try their cocktails! I’m usually a wine girl and my husband mostly straight whiskey or beer... but when we go there we get cocktails bc they are sooo good. I’m currently pregnant and the mocktail was even amazing. I got the mojito or rather no-jito they called it.

Unbelievable service by our waiter Elias, I think was his name. Food was good. The s’more desert was unprecedented served with real hot coals to roast our marshmallow on! That was amazing. Food was very good. Pricey, but good. Love the atmosphere of the outdoor dining experience!
