Despite their limited staff the service was great and the food continues to be abovr par.
We chose Campfire for our New Years Day dinner with friends. So glad we did! The staff was very friendly snd efficient. The food was great. The ambiance was very pleasant.
Our waitress - Kristie was brand new and her service was not the best. She said that she was in the food service industry for 20 years, must have been “behind the scenes’ .
Service was poor and she had an excuse for everything.
At the end - we asked for our check and she provided no pen to sign the check.
Overall - it was good meal but having Kristie as our waitress dampened our total experience to offer a fair assessment.
Decent food, poor service
The drinks, ambience, waitstaff, and location are all superb. However, the food was disappointing.
We began with two cocktails and appetizers, the Mood Ring and Sangria and the Poutine and Chips. The Mood Ring was spectacular, with just the right amount of habanero zing in every sip. The poutine and chips were exactly what you'd expect, yummy comfort food.
Each of our entrees were disappointing, however. They appeared to have been prepared by a "heavy hand", with too much sauce on the salmon and pasta and burgers that were literally charred on the outside.
I would go back for drinks, but not stay for dinner in the future.
Nice place to have dinner after a day of skiing. Nice quiet ambiance and good service. Kids roasted s’mores at the table for dessert which was quirky treat.
Great experience overall. Only complaint was not being told the specials for the evening and then overhearing them being told to another table. We would have ordered them had we known. Our orders were delicious, and recommend the stores board for dessert!
We had a great time at the Campfire Grill. Chooch was the best maitre d’ I’ve met in a very long time. He made us feel at home and like part of a family. He gave us tips and was extremely attentive as we’re all of our servers. The chicken roulade was juicy and cooked to perfection. The burger with the bacon jam was amazing and the steak was very well prepared and tasted great too. We will definitely return.
Campfire Adirondack Grill was the perfect place for mu husband and I to have Christmas dinner. The staff was very welcoming, food was great and the atmosphere was very comfortable. We will return again when in Upstate NY.
Good spot to have a meal. Nicely designed. The food started out excellent, both soup of the day and a special, but then went downhill. The xmas dessert was dry and bland. The highlight of the evening was restaurant's host Chuch. He made our visit unforgettable.
Robert was amazing. So friendly and attentive. Food was excellent--you must try the corn bread! 5 stars all around. Thank you for a great evening!
This place is wonderful! Super chic and cozy decor. Excellent menu and drinks. Attentive service. The food was delicious, but my kids absolutely adored the DIY s’mores brought to the table. Such a gem of a restaurant. We can’t wait to go back.
Cocktails, food and service were all very good! We will be back soon.
Wonderful experience with a large party, live band and top service from the servers and management. Very special time with the family. 💗🏔
We had a great family dinner, the waiter who take care of us was an absolute darling and professional even if we arrived relatively late. The food was very good and I was impressed by the well curated wine list, as I am a wine pro myself, you don’t come across those types of wine selection very often when your outside big cities. Bravo and we’ll definitely come back when we’ll be ont area!
We had our Thanksgiving dinner. It was really nice. Food was good quality and service was wonderful
Food was outstanding as was the service. Prices a little high as nothing was included, but I would definitely go there again.
Great service, food and drinks. Highly recommend their autumn sangria and burger!
The menu and wine selection is not large but the choices are very well done and excellent. Five of us each had different entrees and drinks. It was a very pleasant two hour dinner.
Excellent service, waitress was knowledgeable and very attentive. Food was very good. Will definitely be back.
Good food, drinks and service. Will definitely be back.
Attractive, modern space in the beautiful Hotel Saranac. The food was mostly very good with a couple of disappointments. The cornbread that appeared on our table was superior, the pear salad was large and delicious, the burger was described as "the best I've ever had", the chicken with polenta was tender and tasty. Unfortunately, the venison was a very small portion, and while it tasted good, was not worth the high price. The bread pudding was more like burned toast vs traditional bread puddings.
Service as efficient, but not particularly friendly.
It was a Thursday night, not very crowded. I would definitely go back and dine, probably at the bar.
Really nice atmosphere. Cute “camp” decor. Staff is excellent. Menu is small but the food was delicious.
Imagine my surprise when we were seated by a wall when there were several window tables available! I requested to sit by the window, but was told because I booked thru Open Table there were only certain tables available; the ones by the windows were not available for Open Table diners! I have never before been penalized this way for using Open Table to make reservations. Is this common practice?!
Hi there; we are very sorry to hear of this unfortunate mishap. Our normal standard of operation is to give those who make reservations through OpenTable priority with our more desirable seating. Although it is not always a guarantee, we sincerely believe their was some confusion from the staff member you interacted with and can assure you it would not happen again. This will be promptly addressed to ensure that everyone is aware of our practices. Thank you for being an OpenTable user!
We enjoyed the whole experience as an unusual menu and approach. Had a great bottle of wine and liked the camp fire twist in food prep and presentation. Enjoyed meeting the chef and our server Robert was knowledgeable and fun.
We are so glad to hear that you enjoy our concept and service. Our whole team absolutely enjoyed having you for dinner and we sincerely hope to see you again.
Great food and drinks. Fantastic service!
Thank you so much for dining with us! We hope to see you again some time.
One of the best burgers we’ve ever had. Perfectly seasoned with a good char and executed both a medium rare and a medium well perfectly. Great bartender Nicole!
So glad to hear you enjoyed your burger and service! Hopefully we will see you again. :)
I usually don’t write bad reviews and usually have only good things to say. Unfortunately, this restaurant does not hit the mark. Aside from the friendly waiter the food quality did not meet expectations at all. Went as a party of 4. All meals had little to no flavor. Over priced for quality of food. Polenta came out cold, chicken was dry, the bolognese had no flavor. We had mentioned the cold polenta with no accommodations. We were originally going to get dessert but after the dinner quality we passed.
Really cool decor inside a historic hotel. Service was quick & friendly. Food was just meh - I had what they were calling a Spanish potato omelette, but it was really a frittata & it didn’t have much potatoes. Instead, it had a lot more of a sausage I didn’t care for. Hubby’s meal was good, hard to mess up bacon & eggs, but again side of potatoes was minuscule - like a scant 1/4 cup - which given the price, was unfortunate. Especially since we can’t eat the toast since we are gluten free.
We went for our Anniversary Dinner and it met all of our expectations. The drinks were great, the service was also top notch. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and his recommendations were on point. The food was also very sophisticated and delicious. I highly recommend this place!
Love the location and decor. We ordered cocktails that were ok. Wish the menu had a little more choice. Ordered the burger and fries were soggy and burger was way over salted. Waitress was hurried. The bright spot was the hostess who continued to check on us and was smiling. Cornbread was great.
Hi there; thank you so much for your thoughts and concerns, and we will make sure to pass on your compliments to our hostess. Otherwise, it does not sound like your experience was up to our usual standards. We are addressing the issues and hope that you will give us a try again in the future.
Yeah, the menu is on the expensive side, but it’s entirely worth every penny. I have not had a more delicious meal out at a restaurant in a very long time. Our server was friendly, the drinks were wonderful, and the food was no joke. I’m already planning our next dinner here.
This was our first time at Camp Fire Grill. Our server, Taylor, was excellent! She knew the menu well, was attentive to our pace, and very personable. The food was excellent - highly recommend the tempura shrimp - wow! We will definitely be back and look forward to it!
This is such a lovely restaurant with delicious food and a cozy atmosphere!
The red snapper was absolutely amazing! Service was superior. Had to give it four stars instead of five because my wife was a little disappointed with the roasted chicken as it was a little dry and the noise level was slightly higher than we enjoy. Otherwise, we would highly recommend.
Steak was inedible…extremely tough. Had to ask twice to get entire meal deducted from bill
We are terribly sorry about the unsatisfactory experience you had while dining with us this past week. Please understand that the quality of the steak you received is far below our standards and unacceptable in our eyes. Thank you for readdressing the issue with your server so that management could properly compensate for the error. Hopefully we will see you again for a proper, locally sourced steak in the future.
My experience has always been wonderful! The bar service is excellent the staff are knowledgeable and the food from the kitchen is creative and farm to table fresh! I look forward to my next visit. A must when I’m in the area!
Ambivalent experience. My filet was tasty but carelessly plated . It needed some greens or veggies. The potatoes serving was minimal. Our friend said his steak was delicious. My wife’s burger was ok. Overall not the experience we expected.
Need more staff. Reflected in service and food.
Hi there, We are very aware that your dinner with us was less than satisfactory, and wish we could have provided a more complete and fulfilling experience. We also look forward to a time when we are fully staffed, and regret that we couldn't perform better for you at this time. Our team is trying our best to remedy these unprecedented circumstances and look forward to the chance to deliver a better meal to you in the future. Best, the entire Campfire team
We showed up for our reservation excited to return since we had such good food previously. We were seated promptly. The waitress was friendly and took our drink order. When we looked at the menu there were 6 options.
(Covid ) The waitress came over to take our order and let us know that 2/6 options were no longer available. We placed our order and then the waitress returns to notify us that there was one more option they were out of leaving a total of 3 things to choose from all being meat. To say that we were disappointed is an understatement the food was mediocre and not what we originally wanted so it made it feel worse. I would not recommend this restaurant nor will i return.
We apologize for the shortcomings during your meal with us. We understand that must have been disappointing and aim to produce a better experience than the one you received. We appreciate your understanding with the many limitations Covid has created, including regular food supply-chain shortages. It is our job to overcome this and regret that your meal was not up to par. Hopefully you will give us a chance again in the future and we will take your concerns into deep consideration.
