Amazing food in a quiet atmosphere. They added four amuse Busch beyond the regular tasting menu. Only dish that didn’t stand out was the black cod. I highly recommend this place.

Very good food and service. But still overpriced. They aggressively promote their $50/$90 glass of wine if they see you with a women.

Overall the experience was an excellent place for any occasion. Restaurant itself was a really nice place. Even though this is my first time at this restaurant and have eaten Indian food somewhere else. This chef has given me the taste of his southern Indian food taste at a whole different palate. I love the presentations and the food was very yummy. I’m sure to go back with my date... maybe valentines or something. It’s a place to go back. :) Great for dates, special occasions, hang out with friends, in general elegant family dinner.

Creative and delicious. Not at all traditional Indian dishes - rather Indian inspired using varied ingredients. Nothing too heavy or spicy, but flavors were interesting and fun.

Special occasion treat to my in-laws. They had never experienced a tasting menu before and were visiting from India. It was their anniversary. They had a blast being pampered by the top-notch accommodating service and seeing the beautiful presentations with various flavors in the food, while still balancing the "Indian". The Cal-Indian was very much appreciated. Farm-to-table fresh and unique, but Indian flavors, without being an Indian meal.

The in-laws both did the veg spice route tasting menu, with 6 courses, which ended up being like 10 (with all the in-between dishes) and LOVED it. My husband and I took the Spice Route (regular, including non-veg- which happened to be focused on seafood and poultry during this visit, just the way I like it!) We both also loved our meals. I did get the impression the veg tasting menu was marginally "heavier" than the non-veg, especially because ours contained bass and scallops vs. jackfruit kabobs and cashew coconut curries etc.

We were also wowed by the desserts. It continues to amaze me that Campton does not have a separate pastry chef but churns out premiere desserts and chocolates. Having been to other Michelin star restaurants and tried other tasting menus, those hold their place, in this, holds its own. Definitely worth at least one visit despite the pricey side. Treat yourself. Cheers.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful our experience was! The food was inspired and delectable! We had the yoghurt croquettes, naan rolls, shishito peppers, string hopper and one other dish that was lovely. We could not get a dinner reservation, so we had lunch, which was divine. I have to add that we had dinner the night before, at a three star Michelin restaurant, and this lunch blew the doors off of that dinner!

A bit overpriced, but the food was excellent. Small portions, so you also need to make sure you get plenty of courses. The service was also very slow even though the restaurant wasn't busy. That being said, I would come here again.

Our dinner there was happenstance because we were staying at the Hyatt across the street and we managed to snag a reservation at 9 pm. What luck and what a meal. The Indian inspired flavors were incredible. Such a delicate, interesting, lovely use of spices. Try the spice pot and the lamb. I will remember them forever.

One of the best dining experiences we’ve had. A fantastic variety of tastes with portions small enough not to overstuff, but in a number enough to keep one satisfied and excited with anticipation as to what will come next.

We had the 6course spice route, liked the food and presentation - it was very good; wine pairing though was underwhelming, imo didn’t do that much to enhance the experience; in general imo it’s difficult to do good wine pairings for Indian and specially South Indian food... still was worth trying but Not worth spending $300+ on it... for that lazy bear is my favorite!

The chef has such a unique and exciting approach to food. The mixture of flavors and textures, it was a different experience with each dish. The green apple, avocado, and arugula mousse was unforgettable. Everything was a delight and the staff was very pleasant and attentive.

I really wanted to like this place. We went there for a special anniversary and it was good but not outstanding. For the amount we paid $$$$$$$ it should have 5 stars. It is completely over priced. I couldn't even eat the desert because it didn't taste great. Very disappointing.

We just finished having dinner here tonight! This place surpassed my expectations on all levels. Ambiance, hospitality, service, food quality and cocktails were all A+. We did the 4 coarse prefixed menu where we get to choose each course. We enjoyed the poached lobster, halibut, and absolutely loved the Spice Pot and Truffle Naan! They surprised us w a couple of different bite-sized starters that were so flavorful and creatively made. Ian, our waiter was great and took really good care of us. I ordered the duck and didn’t like it and they immediately offered to bring out something else in its place. I instead ordered the lamb which was prepared just right. The dessert did not disappoint either. Highly recommend this place!!

For your special evening this is a must do, expensive yes but worth every cent.
The food was outstanding, the Service exemplary and the attention to detail in how each course was plated and served was wonderful.
We ordered from the four course menu but with the extra tasting items provided we had a substantial meal and left Campton Place well satisfied.

Many thanks to both the Kitchen and Front of House staff for a wonderful evening.
