    Much better than the previous visit, which was during restaurant week. Service was better and the food well presented. Ordered Chorizo Fritters and an Arugula Salad as starters between 4 of us, and then 3 orders of the Hangar Steak and one of the Tagliatelle. One order of Strawberry Shortcake, and a Crepe went down well. The cocktails are a little strange, and not something we would order again, except for the Caipirinha, which was very nice.

    Good not great dinner food. I went with the Restaurant Week selection. Limited menu swayed me that direction. Our waiter was flat - very little emotions and a bit slow. I might go back to check out brunch but I doubt I will return for dinner.

    I was pleased to not only be seated quickly but also see oysterson the menu. Yum! I began with the Massachusetts oysters, licked the plate clean on the striped bass and then enjoyed every sip of incredible decaf French Press. It's a bit noisy for normal, In-depth conversation but the food was tasty and the staff was friendly and helpful.

    The place was so attractive. Excellent ambiance and wonderful background music was so nice It could have even been louder . The service was outstanding. The food was good. We went for restaurant week and there were only two choices for each entree, where as most other places had three to five, and some course had nothing that really appealed to me. But everything was well prepared

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/18/2012
    Maybe it's my fault for always having higher expectations for restaurants in the Bishop Arts District area, but CampO Modern really fell short. The ambiance is great... it's in a historic house with very West Elm meets Anthropologie decor. The only problem is that the restaurant is tiny, which caused it to be extremely noisy the whole time we were eating. I could have easily overlooked the noise factor if the food was incredbile... but it was probably one of the worst meals I have had in that price range. The gaszpacho was the best thing of my entire meal and even that fell extremely flat. Nothing was seasoned very well, the spinach was extremely overcooked and bitter, and the bass I got tasted like dirt. I will not be visiting again.

    greeted and sat quickly approached by server and immediately offered appetizer. received appetizer same time as beverages. server struggled with specials description. restaurant became busy towards end of reservation. chorizo fritters real doughy and lacked any chorizo kick let alone flavor. chicken dish with fig risotto very good. duo of beef was a 5 oz hanger steak with lack of any flavor other than char. and the bone marrow was a total of maybe a 1/4 teaspoon. we maybe made the mistake of taking home the beignets (4 nickel size) so cant complain that they were awful.

    Disclaimer: we went during restaurant week on a Wednesday evening. We went for restaurant week, but ordered dishes from their regular menu. To start we ordered three appetizers, two of which were salads and had to wait 45 minutes to get them. During this time we watched other diners around us get served their appetizers and entrees. We finally asked how long it would be before we were served our appetizers and then they came right out, so I'm not sure if the order got lost or what. Our main complaint was that we were ignored during the long wait and there was no apology or attempts to make it right. Our entrees didn't take too long, but by that point we were irritated. The food was good though.

    We went during restaurant week so I am not sure if this was a typical evening. The melon soup was okay, just couldn't quite be sweet or savory. The pork was pretty good although a bit fatty. Dessert was chocolate beignets that were heavy. Service was okay, we waited too long for our wine pairings. Not sure if we will be back or not. Hit or miss, I would say. I had expected much more from the reviews!

    My first experience at Campo was very good. Nothing was bad. This was when it first opened. So for Restaurant week I decided to take my dad there. The food was not bad but not outstanding. I would say it was good but nothing out of the ordinary. Our favorite thing was the bread. He said it was some of the best he had in his life! So I have to say I was disappointed since I was really blown out of the water the first time I went there.

    The menu was small, the portions were smaller, and it was necessary to order a lot of different things to even come up with a filling meal. Everything we got was tasty but there were some very odd combinations of food and most things did not compliment other things. It was ok but doubtful we will go back.

    CampO has become my go-to spot whenever I visit Dallas. The food is imaginative and delicious and I've never had better service. On my most recent visit, my companions and I shared the amazing charcuterie board as an appetizer: amazing meats, homemade whole grain mustard, jams, and chewy, yummy bread. I had the grilled sea bass on a bed of plate-licking-good grains. My friend's fresh pasta with rock shrimp was light, fresh, and perfectly balanced, and the other friend's pork chop and fresh sausage link were flavorful and perfectly cooked. Then there is the amazing dark chocolate and hazelnut tart, accompanied by house-made coffee ice cream - a jolt of expresso in cold, creamy form. More than worth the drive from anywhere in Dallas.

    CampO is a great little gem just south of the Trinity River in North Oak Cliff, an easy drive over the new Margaret Hunt Hill bridge if you live in North Dallas and convenient to all other neighborhoods if you don't. Worth the trip: Interesting and varied, if small, menu; very creative cuisine with local ingredients; lovely setting in a restored cottage; inventive cocktails and good wines; knowledgeable, friendly, and very welcoming staff. Do go!

    I feel more people should know about this cool spot! We had a great time at our brunch last Sunday at CampO. The service was super friendly, the food was awesome - yummy and interesting (I had a yellow tomatoes and cheese Frittata and my guy had the brunch's savory tart). The drinks were refreshing (fresh squeezed OJ and a brilliant Bloody Mary w/ a garnish of pickle and a sausage stick! Also they serve a great French press coffee). We loved it and said to ourselves - it's like being in NYC in the middle of The Big D... Can't wait to go back to CampO and check the dinner menu!

    The food was always interesting. Flavors very strong; if I were to guess, I'd say that the intensification of flavors is a kitchen principle here. Our waiter, Kevin, was very professional, helpful, and both personable and attentive without being obtrusively so. Air conditioner was out, so they gave us a surprise discount, which was entirely nice. I also really like the aesthetic of the place. It was quite noisy, but I'm not sure that's really a complaint, since I want people to know and support this place.

    Dined on 7/12/2012
    The food at Campo is not for those looking for the traditional American style Italian food. It is very avant grade without being so out of touch with what it is they are preparing. The portions are just perfect; and good for sharing so you can sample more dishes. Don't normally have a cocktail but their offerings were so intriguing that it was inane not to try one. They are very good. Like the dinner portions, the drinks aren't so alcohol heavy that you can't enjoy the rest of the evening. The menu changes constantly which is good. I'm looking forward to going back soon. The wait staff is most knowledgable and very patient. My friend had LOTS of questions and each one was answered in detail.

    We loved CampO Modern. Interior is light and airy with simple minimalist / artsy touches. Example - menus are one piece of paper held in place on corrugated cardboard with rubber bands - wooden tables are white washed on top, but sides are unfinished. Wine and food was delicious. I had one of the specials of the day (grilled shrimp over a risotto) and it was incredible and reasonably priced. The bread is fantastic. Some reviews say the menu is "thin" but everything our table of four had was great and we had a hard time choosing, it all sounded so good. Can't wait to go back. Oh, and no problem with noise - but it was a Sunday night.

    Unexpectedly wonderful find close to Dallas Methodist Medical Center! Eclectic menu, beautifully executed food, very attentive, helpful service. I ate there twice during my 10-day stay and if I lived in Dallas, I would be a regular. Pan roasted sweetbreads were the best I've had in the US, France, or Argentina. Salmon was perfectly cooked. Also had the roasted chicken with ratatouille - delicious. It's worth a drive across Dallas to dine at CampO!
