Laughable portions. Unimaginative food. Spotty service. Should have believed the other reviewers. Won’t be back.
Great food and service with friendly atmosphere, perfect for a group of friends and family.
Overrated. The food was just ok for the prices. (Even keeping in mind that you don't tip the servers presumably because they are paid a living wage.)
Went for valentines eve. No special greeting or decor. Not a flower in the room. Cold atmosphere despite big nice chandeliers. Seats old church pews and chairs - uncomfortable. Simple bordering on austere. Flavors very light - more like perfumes. Grassy, fresh, slightly bitter. Portions small. Food ... good, but nothing spectacular. Service and experience hard edged. Drove from across town for a special evening with my husband. Fine, but disappointing. Would not bother going back.
Made the reservations for Valentine’s Day . The ambiance was great. The food was ok ... definitely wasn’t good enough to justify the price. The community style seating let us know that we weren’t alone in our feelings on the dining experience .
The food is excellent. The ambiance is very nice, though it can be a little loud. Service is very attentive when they're present, but don't expect to be smothered; it can be a while between visits if they're busy. Wine selection by the glass is very decent, and the cocktails are tasty.
Had the family together from LA & NY and we had a very nice Sunday Supper. Several orders of the Duck and whole Rock Cod. Could not have been nicer. Thank you all for your gracious hospitality. Hope to hit a Crab Monday soon. Brian
We ordered three of the appetizers, all the sides, two entrees, cocktails, and a bottle of wine. The food was well-prepared and the ingredients impeccable, with some interesting dishes that reflected the season beautifully. I found the "message" of the food disjointed, however, with elements clashing both within each dish and between them. But the service -- or lack of it -- really disrupted the experience, to the extent that the timing of the food coming to the table was off and parts of the dishes were cold.
I really appreciate Camino's no-tipping policy; I believe in paying all the staff a fair wage. But the staff seemed both untrained and uninterested in serving customers. We had looooooong waits for our drinks, our wine, and between courses (even though the restaurant was at most 2/3 full), with too much food coming at once. It was nearly impossible to flag our server down, and we had to notify other passing servers of our needs, which didn't feel right to me.
I would not return to Camino without assurance that the menu had been made more assertive and cohesive, and the service had improved -- a disappointment, if not on all counts.
The reason I did not give a better rating was due to the couples next to us. We sat at a long table with other people which I don't mind but the two gentlemen sitting across next to my husband were so loud that at the end of an hour and a half I had heard nothing but them all night.
The food was not that great for the price and the portions were too small.
Caminos is prompt in having the table available at the time of the reservation. It's amazing that they can do that in 15 minute increments.
I enjoyed the beet salad. The duck was delicious.
An enjoyable time
Top notch as always. Crab was all time.
My husband and I took an out-of-town friend to Camino for dinner. We really enjoyed the experience of eating there and loved the ambiance of the restaurant. However at the end of the meal, when we were thinking about favorite dishes, we realized that none of us thought any of the dishes really stood out. Overall, good experience, good concept, but less memorable food than I would have expected.
Amazing food, delicious cocktails. Quality and effort put into food is top notch!
Russell's food is always remarkable, in both ingredients and cooking; his simple is never simple.
