Went there last Saturday evening, it was the most disappointing dining experience we ever had. Took 40 minutes to get a drink, over two hours to get our meal, only after threatening to leave, of which we saw at least three tables get up and left. Waiter disappeared, my wife, even went to the Bar to get another drink as the waiter never came back.

Ordered apps. The chorizo had more fat than my mother in law. Ordered dinner and after an hour and 10 minutes we had to leave. Our server kept apologizing but not once did a manager come over. Got our check and left - late for an 8:00 show. This evening was a disaster and we will not be going back.

Our meals weren’t served in abundance. Just the right amount of serving. Personally I don’t like to bring left overs home. Sangria was good. The serradura cream was too dense. Will not order that again. Service was pleasant and attentive.

The services was very slow but our waiter was really nice. My filet Mignon I requested well done and butterfly, it was still red inside it wasn’t butterfly and I didn’t enjoy my meal since it was all fat on the filet mignon.

We arrived on time for a 7pm reservation, the restaurant was half occupied and waited about 10 minutes to be seated. Some of the tables near us had not been cleared from other diners (and remained that way the for the entire time that we were there). No one from the wait staff came over, no water & no bread nor anyone to greet us and take our order for a while. Eventually our order was taken and one of our diners asked for bread which never arrived. One diner also ordered a soda, did not arrive so he asked again, still did not arrive. We were charged for two sodas, apparently the order was entered, just not delivered. The meals arrived and the food was good, but their service was not good. No one checked on us, not a good dining experience.

disappointed with quality of food and service. seafood was overcooked, steak was so-so and waiter barely spoke english. when we place our order for entries he told us that it includes a salad and then ended up charging us for that. i will not recommend it, actually stay away from it.

Great place for any occasion. Main dining room is open plan. Ability to choose live seafood and fresh cuts of meat. Friendly, knowledgeable Sommelier. Excellent Chef able to prepare rare and well done meats without either being tough or flavorless. Vegetarian options available.

Our reservation was at 6pm, and we arrived a little early. The place was just starting to fill, so we had no problems getting seated. Initially, the service was nice. The reading of the specials was helpful, and we got our drinks quickly. The apps were really pretty good. The octopus salad and flambe chorizo was a nice combination. A little on the salty side, but that's a matter of taste.

Then it went downhill. Our food took quite some time (Filet and the grouper special). The food first went to another table, then back to the kitchen, then finally to us. The steak was very, very rare. Raw. And our servers never once checked on us. We wanted another round of drinks, but they were nowhere to be found. Never even got a water refill.

When we flagged someone down so we could get our check, the host/manager apologized and half-heartedly offered a free desert. Overall, not worth the time with so many other options in the area.

Clams were overcooked... the cilantro garlic sauce was great though. The shrimp cocktail and crab stuffed mushrooms were also very good. I couldn't tell why I was seeing great food go by, like the charcuterie plate, but it was not on the menu. The tapas menu was on a promo table stand we didn't have. So disappointed I didn't get to try the other goodness there.

We picked this restaurant for its location not far from the airport. We have been here several times but not for Sat. lunch. The food was good, the service very good. The restaurant was empty at 2:00 on a Sat. so we had alot of attention.

The food is very good here, but what is notable is the service, which was friendly and attentive (but not overly so). My daughter is a vegetarian, so I liked that there were a couple vegetarian options, which were tough to find when I looked at the menus of other local Portuguese restaurants.

We have come to Campino to celebrate special occasions at other times. We have always found the food to be delicious. I ordered the WILD salmon which is hard to find in restaurants now a days. I found it to be very good along with the vegetables and sweet potatoes. I was not disappointed. I did find the desert and cappuccino to be a bit too much on the sweet side. I don't put sugar in my cappuccino and this one seemed to come sweeten. The service was good and the shrimp and garlic appetizer was delicious. I am sure I will go again.

Campino is a very nice space inside - nice bar and big showcase of the fish and meat they are cooking. Huge menu of nice Portugese dishes with a good selection of daily specials. Good drinks and decent wine list. Very casual place and everyone very friendly. A pleasure to see people just having a good time eating good Portugese food. Nice area outside too next to Parking lot.

I would comment that our waiter provided poor service, however, after spending 2+ hours at the restaurant I was not sure who my waiter was! We ordered a sandwich, two salads and an entree - It took about 1 hour to come to the table after waiting 40 minutes to order.
The maitre d was friendly and pleasant but despite our speaking with him and others there seemed to be no ability to rectify whatever the problems were there that night. Proceed with caution - unless you have a lot of time and you do not mind that there was no consistency in what tables are served first..

Good food, reasonable prices. We went before a ahow at the prudential center. Not walking distance so factor in an uber. Looked like a lot of regulars and special occasions. We had appetizers and salads all VG but the meat and fish are the stars and we will be back for the tomohawk steak.
