I deliberately arrived at LAX a bit earlier before my last flight flight in order to test out Campanile, a new Priority Pass restaurant in Terminal 4.
There was no wait for a table and since time was limited, I flagged down a waitress and ordered right away. Here’s the full lunch menu:
Your Priority Pass card grants you $28 in food/drink credit (and an additional $28 per guest). Note the fine print surrounding this particular Priority Pass restaurant. You are only permitted one “complimentary” guest, even if your Priority Pass membership includes unlimited guests.
I chose a flat iron steak. It cost $23.99 meaning I was under the $28 limit and could have walked away without opening my wallet.
The steak was cooked medium-rare, exactly as I specified, and included fried potatoes drizzled in chipotle sauce and mushrooms. I enjoyed the meal very much.
The Priority Pass credit cannot be applied toward gratuity, so I did ask the waitress to charge $5 on my credit card. Please do tip your waitress: it’s the right thing to do considering tipping culture in the USA and how many likely depend on tips to make ends meet.
After eating, I returned to Terminal 7 on the secure side using the underground tunnels which links terminals 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.
Although I had access to the Air Canada, Alaska, and United lounges, this proved to be a far better option. I enjoyed a nice steak lunch and only had to tip. The menu at Campanile is nice: this is a far better restaurant than Barney’s Beanery. I look forward to returning, though I will try P.F. Chang’s next time in the Tom Bradley International Terminal.
