It was just ok. That's the long and short of it. The place was empty. We ordered drinks and they arrived quickly. I ordered Sin Zin(nice wine).The bread arrived and was boring bland white bread. My friend suggested the bread should be heated and/or a garlic spread. The server poured an olive oil/basalmic dip for the bread. We ordered the... More

W My daughter and I went for lunch . . . Just walking by and noticed and open table. We both ordered a pesto dish and a fettuccine Alfredo. The pesto was amazing. I added chicken to the Alfredo. The chick peas great. The Alfredo was nothing spectacular. Great atmosphere and good service. Would definitely come again!

I read other reviews that say this place has bad service... but I've been there 3 times and have always experienced good service. I love going to this place on the weekend, just so I can get fresh scones... yum! I've had a few of their breakfast dishes and have never been disappointed.

I've lived in Eagle Rock since 1973 and have been going to Camilo's since it opened. I travel a lot and I always review hotels and restaurants. Came home from a trip this Sunday and went straight to Camilo's and realized I need to write a well deserved review. I love the ambiance no matter what time of day I... More

Camilo’s California Bistro is hands down the best restaurant in Eagle Rock. I have been dining here since they opened (15 years ago?) and have never had a bad meal. Recently, I met a friend for lunch and we were seated by the owner. He’s very gracious and wants his customers to feel comfortable and at home. I ordered the... More

A great place to enjoy breakfast, brunch, and dinner. I enjoy the eggs benedict and my friends all order the bread pudding/french toast entree. Service is attentive, atmosphere is great, I can always depend on this place to deliver, so I know I can bring picky relatives and they will leave happy.

I eat here a few times a year when i am in town. The hot vegetation sandwich is wonderful and I can heartily recommend the tuna dill cold sandwich. All the salads are good. The desserts are killer and should be reserved for a special occasion. I have always had attentive service.
