    Been once before and enjoyed the food and overall vibe. This time our visit was because of Seattle Restaurant Week. Nice to have a good, comfortable place in the neighborhood.

    The vibe and the drinks were fantastic. Super fun and good service. Unfortunately the food was subpar. My quinoa chickpea salad was the highlight of the night. My boyfriend’s salmon dip was broken and very soupy, my chicken dish with carrots and potatoes was just bland, and my boyfriend’s gnocchi was decent but again, a little bland. If we go back it will be for the ambience and cocktails, don’t think we’ll be getting food there again.

    Our group of five really enjoyed our dinner at Camp West. Fun atmosphere, friendly staff, and the food was delicious. Vegetarian options were great. They have a decent selection of beer and wine, and the bartenders have some excellent drinks. The decor is "campy" but in a good way!

    We requested a window table at the restaurant, and when they found out it was our anniversary - they went out of their way to give us outstanding service. Our experience there has always been great, but it was fun to have our anniversary there as well.

    The food was good and has improved since opening. The service is lacking in areas. We asked for more water on multiple occasions and never got any. One of our desserts was also forgotten, but that did come quickly once we reminded the server we had ordered it. We do wish we had had more time between appetizers being served and mains. There was an incident with a man in a seemingly mental crisis yelling at people inside the restaurant and the staff all handled that situation really well.

    We’re asked to keep these reviews short, simple and specific. The food was delicious We shared the mushroom cassoulet and whatever the biggest burger is. I can’t remember the name and I apologize for the non specificity. The service was great. Friendly, attentive but not overly so. The ambiance is campy but hey, it’s in the name. I could have done without what looks like a dead man in a hammock but it’s not a deal breaker. I look forward to my return.

    Great atmosphere, nice staff, great service, delicious cocktails. Food was decent but soooo salty we couldn’t get through the whole meal. The chicken sandwich was a good concept but needed a much more substantial bun. It totally disintegrated and I had to eat it with a fork. The fried cauliflower was delicious despite being overly salty. I wish they had a gluten free dessert option. Overall I’d recommend, it’s a really cute little place and they 100% nailed the camping theme.

    Made a last minute reservation on a whim and was very pleasantly surprised! Seemed like I was lucky to snag the reservation as well. I saw more than one couple turned away because the place was full and booked up, so checking for a reservation is a smart idea. The staff was all very attentive and helpful. The bar was kept at a comfortably dim level, overall noise level was not bad, it was possible to hold a quiet conversation. The seating was well spaced out, didn't feel overcrowded. I ordered the crispy chicken sandwich and loved it. The breading was super crisp and the sauce had a small kick to it. Tater tots were perfectly crisp and the homemade ranch was very thick. Also got a One Eyed Squirrel which was delightful. I'll definitely be making a trip back, with company next time.

    Wow! This unassuming restaurant is a must try! I made a reservation for 4, but needed to change it to 5 last minute--the staff was very accommodating. The cocktails were delicious and the short rib was AMAZING! My only complaint is that the portion size wasn't bigger--I wanted more. I was concerned that the camping vibe would feel cheesy or cheap, but I was pleasantly surprised. You couldn't ignore the camping details, but the space still gave off a sophisticated vibe. I brought several work colleagues for a casual dinner. 10/10 recommended!

    This was a great experience. Sonja our server was attentive but not smothering. She presented the snackle box with great detail and was quick to answer when asked what she recommended. The food was excellent and not one person had anything negative to say but very positive. The vibe in the room is outstanding and refreshing.

    Camp West is such a great addition to the West Seattle Junction! My husband and I loved West 5 and now we love Camp West just as much! The food is excellent and there are always tasty beers on tap. And the reservation tool on their website is awesome since this place is super popular, and for a just reason :) We'll be back soon!

    We really liked the Mac and Cheese, and the Musk of Sasquatch cocktail and the Sweaty Lumberjack cocktail! But the servers did not seem interested in being there and we had to flag them down multiple times with only 10 total people in the whole place. The Buena Vista club sandwich was disappointingly bland. The ambience was nice at the front, but sparse in the back where we were seated (not in the tent), if you’re looking for the camping vibe.
