About Dia de Campo
A blend of old school and new school Mexican meets West Coast fish house and raw bar.
Día de Campo owners Chef Tin Vuong and Jed Sanford’s vision for a Mexican and seafood restaurant set in the South Bay of Los Angeles. Located in Hermosa Beach, just a block off the sand and strand, Día de Campo is a modern surf lodge, of sorts, catering to those who want to disconnect, leave the day behind and gather with friends and strangers over flavorful food and drinks. The menu has Chef Tin paying homage to the array of Mexican and Latino food he’s enjoyed growing up in LA, mostly coming out of cocinas east of the LA River, while also taking inspiration from the fish houses, oyster bars and surf shacks along the coasts of California, Mexico, Hawaii and wherever the Pacific meets the sand.

Dia de Campo Ratings and Reviews
This is a great option in the South Bay. Great cocktails and food with the sort of attention to detail and quality ingredients you usually don't see outside of Venice, DTLA, WeHo, etc. Atmosphere is very cool and you can hang out for drinks or stay for a great meal. Pro Tip: Don't put their napkins on your lap - they use bar towels for napkins and they get white fuzz all over you. (Just a minor hazard...)
while this is definitely a place i like to go. they were not prepared for cinco de mayo crowds at all. we had to wait for 45 minutes for our reserved table. then they tried to sit our 5 at a 4 top. the manager made up for it by discounting our bill, but only after asked, they didnt see what they could do to accommodate us, and trust me i made my disappointment known from the start.
Waitress was not very friendly from the start. We ordered a "pitcher" of margaritas for four of us only to learn that they've cut the size dramatically to a small carafe. When it didn't fill four glasses, the waitress said it was because they didn't put enough ice in the glasses.... Thankfully, the bartender stepped up to try to make it right, as opposed to her unconcerned attitude. Maybe she just didn't want to be there that day.
We like to come here for brunch and bottomless Mimosas. Great place to ride your bike to. Very close to the Hermosa bike path....handy with those bottomless mimosa! Pricing is good for the quality of food and drink...Sometimes you can find discounts on Travel Zoo. Don't expect your regular brunch food. This place has heavy, delicious Mexican/southwest dishes...you wont find eggs and bacon. Atmosphere is great...hip decor and design. Can't wait to go back.
Dia de Campo had a good vibe and the service was good, but the food was unimaginative and VERY expensive for small Mexican portions. The Chorizo & Shrimp enchilada was just blah at $18, but the empanadas and salmon tostada were good. Dinner was $90 with a drink and tip, not a memorable meal for the price.
The food and service was great. I was a little disappointed that I made a reservation and was sat in the bar area. I was very grossed out by the bathrooms though. They are dark with very dim lights and there was no toilet seat covers. The seats were all wet. Disgusting. Those need to be maintained. The food was great and the drinks were amazing. Despite the bathroom situation I would definitely recommend. I will return however, won't use the bathroom and will be more specific on where I would like to sit.
The service here is pretty awful. We waited 40 minutes to be seated for our reservation and then once we were sat we waited another 20 minutes to be greeted and given water glasses - with no apologies (this was after finally saying something to the hostess) They were out of a lot of the items on the menu. Bathrooms were in bad shape.
This place is trendy and well decorated but the food is overrated and service is really bad. Needs better management.
Come for the margaritas and go somewhere else for dinner.
Service at a restaurant really can make or break an experience. The food's gotta be good, and it was. But we had the worst service I had experienced in a long while. Like downright rude while we were being very kind to the waitress. We never tip low for poor service. They have to support a family, too. It's non-negotiable. This woman was either angry about a previous table or was just having a bad day. We had waited about 20 minutes between the appetizers and the main meal and we just asked, nicely, if it's coming. She zipped by the table, went to the kitchen, brought the food out and - I'm not exaggerating - threw the plate which slid from one end of the table to the other. She didn't stop, didn't fix it, just kept walking. I can't say that I've had an experience like that anytime in recent memory. Left a bad taste in our mouth. The food is good but there are plenty of other good food in the South Bay. I will avoid that restaurant at any cost not to ever be served by that woman again.
We had a Travelzoo voucher for brunch. The food was excellent - portions just right and I especially love the bottomless mimosas when they just put the bottles of champagne and oj on the table for self service. Even though it was busy the waitress was very pleasant and attentive. We were waited on and received our order in a very reasonable amount of time and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Due to the high ceilings, the noise level gets pretty high but otherwise, it was a great brunch.
My boyfriend and I were here for Vday dinner. and 3 tacos each... We had a conversation that include our next 3 years together because that's how long it took for our food to arrive!! Waitress was really nice and they gave us a discount and a free dessert at the end, tacos were really good and the churros tasted awesome!!!
Food was creative and the wait staff was great... Cadillac Margaritas were yummy!
BUT.. The female seater ( definately not a maitre d') was snippy. When I asked for an open table in tha back, away from the door she said no.. Another larger party has reserved it.
About halfway through dinner another couple was seated at the table we had requested.. NOT a larger party. When I asked her about it she barely said I'm sorry before she jetted away!
Really spoiled a nice night because of her insincere attitude.
It was so loud! We got the burrito of the day which ended up feeling like leftovers put in a tortilla. It had no brightness other than the gleam from the tin foil it was served in. It really made us question why we thought we liked this place on previous visits. I made a reservation, we still had to wait 15 minutes to be seated, and we only saw our waitress when we ordered and when we paid.
I ordered the shrimp enchiladas and they were tasty. My companion ordered the flank steak fajitas. The meat was very tough and not easy to eat in a taco. The octopus appetizer was stingy on the octopus. For the price of the appetizer we thought there should be at least 2 pieces not one.
I also found the music to be too loud to have a conversation without having to raise your voice.
Great! awesome, refreshing cucumber vodka drink. Food was FANTASTIC! veggie and chicken (yellow mole?) tacos - delish. the mole had an interesting blend of flavors. loved everything - though i wouldn't order the oysters again (may as well get the tacos for same price. one oyster was the size of a dime.) i'll be back w/ a bigger group. can't wait to try more things including the fish!! Chef does a great job! Healthy and bursting w/ yummy flavors!
It was for a birthday celebration. They will not do anything for any occasions. Hostess stated we can order churros and they will put a candle on it and stated she would advise the waitress regarding the occasion. We have eaten here before. The portion size has shrunk. Both the steak fajita and the pork chili verde had very few meat. Fajita was filled with bell peppers and onions. Pork chili verde was filled with chili verde with very little small pieces of pork. The waitress never acknowledge the occasion. I don' think the hostess mentioned it to the waitress. They do have good margaritas. The food was too expensive for what we got.
