After working at Chez Panisse for over 20 years, Russell Moore opened this warm and rustic restaurant in the Grand Lake area of Oakland. Inspired by traditional home cooking in France, Italy and Spain most of the dishes served at the restaurant are cooked at the restaurant’s prominent fireplace or wood burning oven. A small, decisive, daily changing menu reflects the seasons, the region and the restaurant’s commitment to small farms. Camino offers a specialized cocktail menu using the same carefully sourced ingredients as the kitchen.

Delicious meal, flavorful cocktails and great service. Still prefer a private table to communal seating, but did not deter from the overall experience.

With a menu that small (3 entree choices) you really expect perfection in each dish, while the food was really good, it fell a little short. The whole rockfish was prepared really well and the presentation was great, the small plate of boiled potatoes it was served with was kind of sad.

Another small issue was the seating. We are not picky about seating at all and even sometimes enjoy getting a “different perspective” of the restaurant, but if you seat someone next to a computer terminal then servers should probably take the extra step to not bump or brush into the back of your seat (or head...) every time they use the machine.

Extremely noisy! At the end of the night, I felt my voice getting hoarse from having to shout across the table to talk to my dinner companion. However, for those duck lovers who missed Bay Wolf, this is your spot.

Camino is usually great, but this was an overpriced, undercooked and too-tiny meal. I don't know what is happening at Camino. We ordered plenty of food, but left hungry and grumpy about the meal. Our waiter was great, and we were able to stay at the table for longer than usual because they weren't full. Sadly, I am crossing it off my faves list.

Great for a date night or special occasion. Really delicious food and amazing cocktails. It seems a bit pricey but they pay their staff well & do not accept tips as a result. Do it for a nice night out!

We've eaten at Camino many times. The food is excellent and the restaurant is very attractive. The only criticism I have is that if you order a cocktail, it takes a really long time for it to be served. The restaurant wasn't crowded at all and yet we waited about 20 minutes for our cocktails after ordering them - there are other times where we've waited 30 minutes for them. The cocktails showed up at about the same time as our first course. It happens every time we eat there. It's not a big deal. The food is always really good and the restaurant is very attractive.

I brought a friend here for his birthday and were given a quiet table as requested, so conversation was easy. The half crab was really flavorful and I had the trumpet mushroom packet, which was divine, and enough to take some home for breakfast. Our dessert arrived with a candle, as also requested when I made my Open Table reservation. It was a perfect, low key, delicious celebration. Thanks to the great wait staff for pitch perfect service.

I liked this place. I liked the menu options. The vegetarian main course was fantastic. The chicken was a little dry but good. The hostes was not very welcoming, my husband and I were all giggly enjoying our date night, to find this very serious person at the reception. The waitress was great though. Fun to order the half crab. But I think those will be only as the season lasts. Great new cocktails and house made sodas.
