An amazing restaurant in San Diego! Parking can be. But if a pain, but the experience is worth it! Amazing food, service, and ambiance. Also the rooftop is really pretty.

I enjoyed a wonderful dinner tonight at Campfire with my late wife’s older daughter and husband visiting from Japan, one year after we all enjoyed a similar dinner at the sister restaurant June et Jolie, both in Carlsbad. The signature broccoli and peanut side order was actually the highlight of a meal that was so inventive in mixing exciting and creative tastes from start to finish. Service was outstanding, ambiance was a busy modern spacious setting. We understand the executive chef plans to open two more restaurants in Carlsbad as well.

The staff was phenomenal, the food and drinks above average in freshness and offerings. The only thing to note was the upstairs was quite warm and loud before the crowd left for the evening Padres game so maybe sit downstairs if conversation is important. Definitely a great Gaslamp venue!

Ok, I lost the bet - Warriors vs Celtics. Not too bad a loss though since the winner chose lunch at The Grill. Again we return for friendly service, outstanding views, and perfect weather. This time I chose the heirloom tomato and peach salad with grilled salmon. The salmon was cooked perfectly. Wow! Highly recommend The Grill at The Lodge at TP.

Started with wonderful hors d"oeuvres of smoked salmon, sushi rolls, and shrimp. The calamari salad was most interesting - very colorful and tasty. Star of the dinner was the lamb which was perfectly cooked. Also, another beautiful and delicious dessert highlighting stone fruit. Best wine of the dinner was the sauvignon blanc.

This place does not disappoint. Great selections prepared professionally and always tasty. Loved the crab cakes, prawn martini, clam chowder and Caesar salad! Dave our water was attentive and friendly. Oh…. The oceanfront dining has to be mentioned, the view is like being on a cruise ship!!! We will return.
