Excellent food
The translation from guest to waiter to kitchen back to guest was an adventure.
A number plates came back different due to misunderstanding
Good news is that it was all excellent and they recognized it and corrected it with a smile

My husband and I came here for valentines dinner and after I had convince my husband the restaurant was a good choice of restaurant because I had been here many times before and booked company events and bday dinners.
Unfortunately, our dining experience was not good at all. We first ordered the seafood tower and we were told that would take about 45 mins to come out which we found odd being that it's a cold dish.
So, we decided not to order it and we ordered clams in garlic sauce which was extremely salty.
As for our entrees my husband ordered steak and requested medium rare, it was overcooked and super dry and I order grilled octopus and that was breaded with tons off olive oil underneath the octopus, all I could taste was the olive oil, we could not finish up our dinner so we decided to ask for the check and leave to another restaurant. We were extremely disappointed, and were not sure if we would come back or recommend this restaurant.

I looked a restaurant close to Newark Airport (only 7 minutes away) for a quick dinner with a friend arriving from a long flight. Found Campino, and it was amazing. We both had fish. Absolutely delish! I will definitely come back should we be in the area.

We LOVE it here!!! We are from another state but when we travel, we typically stay in Newark the night before our flight. We make our reservations for Campino every single time and THAT is how we start vacation! The food, service, cocktails and atmosphere never disappoints. I can’t wait until my next vacation just so I can eat dinner here!

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.

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.
