Campo - Mammoth Ratings and Reviews
There aren't many good choices in Mammoth Village. Campo is adequate. Some of the food (gluten-free bee sting pizza, in particular) is really good, but their spaghetti and other items we had were not worth eating. Drinks were just ok. Most of the wait staff (not the bartenders) were really nice with good service, which is why they get the "good" rating. The food and drinks are overpriced but average for the Village. The date night dinner isn't worth it except for the half price wine. Overall, it wasn't terrible, as long as you don't have high expectations.
The food was outstanding. We had the brussel sprout starter as well as the cauliflower starter. They were both mouth watering good. Then for the main we had the pesto pizza. The server let us taste a few wines before making our selection. The food was served fast and hot. Atmosphere was great. Would totally go back.
We had dinner there on our last trip to Mammoth. It's in a great location in the Village and the decor speaks both Italian and rustic mountain. The food is very good but far from excellent. We were able to make reservations for 6pm the same day but the place was packed by 7pm and it wasn't over a holiday. Reservations are a must. Our waiter wasn't the friendliest but the hostess was great. Will definitely go back.
Although we had reservation at 6:15p, we had to wait 20 mins. to be seated. The place was packed due to a snow storm. Several guest stayed at The Village Lodge & extended their stay because their flights were cancelled. We finally got seated & our waiter Tyler was very attentive. He took our order right away since we had young children with us. After skiing all day, our kids were exhausted & hungry. When our food came, my husband's pasta was salty & my risotto had cheese. I had asked for no cheese due to allergies. The manager Matt came by & asked us if everything was ok. My husband told him what happened, he offered to re-do our food but we declined cuz our kids wanted to go back to the room to sleep which is unheard of. Skiing from 8a-4p definitely took a lot out of them! Surprisingly Matt went ahead, place another pasta order for my husband & even comp both of our meals!!! He totally & completely shocked us for going out of his way to make it right. Now that is service!!! Because both Matt & Tyler went above & beyond with service, we'll always remember. When we come back to Mammoth for the 3rd time skiing we'll always go to Campo! Thank you for exceptional service!!!
My husband and two children (8 & 5) went here for my birthday dinner. Our waiter, Tyler, was attentive, personable, and good with the kids. The food was wonderful! We both ordered the filet and side of mushrooms...and our children ordered the chicken and pizza with sides of fruit. What an enjoyable experience!
The food was amazing, the Chef's certainly know what they are doing especially when it comes to pasta and dessert. The service from Moustache Dave was second to none as he made the night even more enjoyable for us. With a little information from us he knew what food to recommend and he was spot on. A family of 3 happy Australians!
Campo surprised me. Went for Valentines Dinner and the Prix Fixe menu was delicious and beautiful presentation. IMO Usually Val meals are tedious. Waiter was pleasant and interesting but also attentive. Corkage Fee very reasonable and no push back. Very happy with Campo especially for Mammoth.
I've been here 5 or 6 times in the past 3 years and the food is always great. We had to wait for our table, not a big deal but 25 mins past resie time. Drinks took 26 mins to get after order .... not great service there.
Food wait was even longer than that our waiter made good on the delay.
Our waiter was terrific and the food was excellent. The only things that we found lacking, was the service was slow to come out of the kitchen and it took a very long time to get our bill. We will go back because our servers were excellent and the food was delicious.
We love Campo! It is one of our favorite restaurants in Mammoth. My husband and I sat at the bar and had a couple of cocktails (I had a lovely Negroni and my husband had a New York Sour which was so fun and yummy. The bartender nailed both!) We shared our favorite Kale salad with the poached egg, Beesting pizza (just the perfect mix of spicy, sweet, crust - YUM!). We ended with a salted caramel budino pudding. This place is just special! So special that it is almost impossible to get in lately without a reservation. Glad that the Mammoth restaurant business is doing so well. Buen Provecho!
Food was subpar. It was MLK weekend but that shouldn't have mattered. Food was very average. Not worth the money really. Thank goodness we had reservations or we would not have gotten in. Even though we probably would have gotten to eat somewhere better if we didn't have the reservation. Food took a long time to come out.
Overpriced place that nickel and dimes you. Host was arrogant and rude, waiter was cool. Environment in Sunday during "kids eat free" is full kids, obviously.. so it was loud but not that big of deal. The food, however, was a joke. $20 for a pizza and still hungry for more. Spaghetti with no sauce and then charged $2 for more marinara sauce. I highly recommend you DO NOT go here unless you are good with a dud host and way overpriced food that is mediocre at best.. except for the pizza crust, that was pretty great... but still not worth the outrageous price.
Service started out great. Waiter was very cordial and orders were placed. After that, things went downhill. Follow up during the waiting-for-the-meal process and after meal was served was not that great. Had to ask for things like salt & pepper and cheese and red peppers or "how is your dinner".
Our server was excellent. Unfortunately, we can not say the same for the food. Our pasta dishes arrived within 5 minutes of ordering them, which was a huge warming sign that the pasta had been pre-cooked and was sitting out, cold, gummy and starchy. The sauces were also very watery leaving much to be desired. Our two oldest and youngest children liked the pizza, but our 4 year old knew right away that his pizza was covered in something other than pepperoni. Really? Trying to get fancy on a kids menu with the meats? Kids want pepperoni. He called you out on your failure right away. Luckily, we had frozen pizzas in our condo - Celeste, $99! He loved it! Our kids usually devour the bread at restaurants but all four refused to eat it. After trying it ourselves, my husband and I understood why. Flavorless, dry and hard. We were looking forward to a great meal....unfortunately, we didn't find it here.
After reading a number of the recent negative reviews, my expectations were pretty low for this dinner. I was however pleasantly surprised that our experience was not consistent with some of the bad reviews I read from other diners.
We had an outstanding server. She made excellent suggestions and was very attentive even though the restaurant was packed. We ordered the cauliflower appetizer which was "ok", the daily special pizza and the warm spinach salad and really enjoyed both of them. Our friend ordered the fish entree and through it was delicious. We ordered the tiramisu and caramel budino for dessert. The tiramisu was "ok" but the budino was amazing!!!
Waiter was awful. Left us sitting forever- took 15 min when we were seated and then another 15 min to come back and get our order. Always had someone else deliver food or drinks. Never checked on us. Just left us sitting forever and when he would show up would try WAY too hard by being overly friendly because he knew he was messing up.
I had read some disappointing reviews of Campo so I was not expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised by our delicious meal. We sampled the polenta appetizer with Burrata cheese and truffles, roasted garlic cauliflower and the pork belly appetizer that was paired nicely with honey, fennel and strawberries. We also ordered pizza, lentil soup and a simple pasta dish. Everything was seasoned nicely and we left full and happy. Our server was great and the whole family left happy with full bellies.
