    Always fabulous. Victor usually looks after us but tonight we had a new server, Juan. He was so warm and happy to find out anything he wasn’t sure of (like if my cocktail could be served up). Victor even stopped by to say hello. We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful place nearby. The menu is updated seasonally so there’s always something new to try as well as old faves.

    Hi Neighbor, When we tell you that the secret in the sauce at Camper are the people, we mean it. We could go on and on about fancy olive oil, local corn, day-boat fish and the finest cuts of beef from all of the bougiest local suppliers (yes, we do that too) but Camper is truly a reflection of the dozens of committed professionals who hone their craft and take great pride in looking over all of our community. As the dust settles here on 6 years of operations here we can truly say none of it meant as much as having great people come and do the leg work in service of other great people. Thank you so much for your note and we hope we get to serve you again, soon~ish ;-) With our best, Team Camper

    Hi Neighbor, Thank you so much for joining us a few days ago and leaving us this very heartwarming feedback. We are incredibly grateful for your support. While we have eschewed many of the traditional forms of marketing and media we have gratefully and humbly embraced our core community and relied deeply on word of mouth endorsement. It sounds so simple but at this very nucleus is a main street, small, indy, family run operation and we are so so fortunate to serve such generous and supportive neighborhood. We can't wait to see you again soon, have a great week and stay cool!! Team Camper

    The service that was provided by CAMPER was amazing. Our waitress was attentive and when we asked for recommendations, she was very knowledgeable. The food, however, was very bland and we had to ask for hot sauce and to make up for the lack of flavor. For the price, we felt that it wasn't worth it. Would give CAMPER another try but not in the near future.

    We’ve been coming here for years, with small kids too. Camper has delicious high quality food, esp the corn agnolotti, and is one of the few places that both delights foodies and also is casual enough for toddlers and young kids.

    Hi Neighbor, This is a big friendly hug from your friends @ Camper, thanking you for taking the trip down Santa Cruz Avenue to visit us recently and swing back to the old Opentable Review page and leave us this most generous score. We appreciate it and hope we get the opportunity to serve you and your family again soon. With our best, Team Camper :-)

    Eaten at Camper several times and I have always been satisfied with the quality of food, service and price. This last visit REALLY disappointed on the food. Halibut Filet was anything but a filet - and whatever the accompanying greens / sides were, equally disappointing. Will have to skip this restaurant for awhile, which means I take my business dinners elsewhere.

    Hello Lonnyo, We're truly sorry to hear that your recent dining experience at CAMPER didn't meet your expectations. We strive to provide our guests with high-quality food and service, and it's disappointing to hear that we fell short this time. We appreciate your feedback regarding the Halibut Filet and the Caramelized Kohlrabi, Carrot Puree, Parsley, Brown Butter Sauce. We will endeavor to do better. We hope you'll give us another chance in the future to provide the quality experience you've come to expect from us. Best, The Management Team Reach out directly to us via email (our email address should you choose to make a reservation in the future, I would love to set things right. -Martin

    Hi Neighbor, Thank you for joining us on the 24th. The absolute cherry on top of this most generous review score was your note. We work truly TIRELESSLY to try to build this warm welcoming space to anchor to this community. It is a heavy lift, done with many hands and truly a round the clock proposition but we absolutely LOVE Menlo Park. We hope we get many more opportunities to serve you again. With our appreciation and gratitude, Team Camper
