I've loved Camaje since it opened. The food is always superb, and the service is excellent, plus it's inexpensive. And during brunch, they've got a wonderful guitar player. It's never rushed, cozy and fresh, innovative food.

cozy village spot, just south
cozy village spot, just south of the more chaotic part of Macdougal. GREAT service with a personal friendly feel. tasty apps and entrees with a really solid middle-of-the-road price point.

intimate but casual
Camaje is a small restaurant with a very friendly feel. There were two groups of 6-8 people each celebrating birthdays as we (two friends) had a meal along with one or two other tables of couples.
Tasty and inventive food but with no fussiness. A great place to go with good friends to start a night out.

Just a nice place to dine on a late Sunday afternoon. Down to earth and good food. The blue cheese soup was yummy!

a special place
We got a last-minute reservation for a party of five to celebrate my mom's 68th birthday. We were seated at a nice circular table and it was quiet enough that my hard-of-hearing dad could participate in the entire conversation - a big win! The atmosphere is intimate, super friendly and casual not stuffy. The food is excellent - especially the hangar steak, the duck, and the desserts. I'm intrigued by the cooking classes and the sensory meals they offer, and I will recommend it to everyone. The owner told us they've been in business for 17 years, and it's the kind of place you hope will stay in business forever.

Unpretentious and awesome
Had a great meal here almost 10 years ago, and for various reasons never made it back until last weekend. Now I wish we'd tried harder; it was even better than I remembered. Warm friendly atmosphere, not at all fussy, and really good food. Which for a miracle was not over-salty! (My current hobby horse - salt is a crucial taste component, but I find a lot of otherwise superb restaurants are overplaying it lately.) Ernest was great, good banter and while he was rushing, never made us feel rushed.
The crostini to start were good but not mind-blowing. But the fish was delicate, perfectly toothy in the crust and delicate in the middle - perfect. My wife had a lamb tagine that was also excellent, savoury and a little sweet.
