The food is very good and the setting is lovely. I felt that the staff tries to “upsell” more than necessary without stating prices. When one is entertaining, it is helpful that when the staff tries to sell an extra glass of Champagne (@ $80/glass) or truffle nan (@ $80 for four,) that the prices are announced to the guests as the “specials” are recited. The present tactic is generally used by restaurants to intimidate guests into spending more than necessary. I was made to feel cheap in front of my guests for asking prices of the server when my total bill for four was already over $1200. Not nice, Taj hotels! You need to re-train your staff and be honest with your clientele. Your present policy is unacceptable.

Amazing food. Loved the concept of Indian spice and influence on California ingredients. We got the Spice Route menu. The Black Cod was our favorite dish (the cod was melt-in-your-mouth perfection). Scallop dosa was very interesting and tasty -- I was concerned the dosa and spices would overwhelm the scallops but it didn't. Lobster curry was delicious.

While the beginning of the meal started out slowly (took time for the menus to come out) and have the drink cart come to our table, everything else about our meal was well-paced. We enjoyed the food and the amount of variety that was available to choose from for each course. Our experience may have been slightly different because we went for a birthday - but the birthday treat was also great and did not taste like a "throwaway" dish that some other places may present.

Overall, we had an amazing experience and would love to dine here again.

Overall a fabulous experience. Highlights were the great service, the numerous super tasty & interesting amuse-bouche, and the wonderful food. Like many of the best restaurants in SF we found it quite expensive but we were more than happy to pay the bill at the end of what was a lovely evening

One of the best dining experiences we have had in San Francisco, or elsewhere, in some time. Great attention to detail. Service was flawless, shining from the first amuse bouche to the last chocolate. Visually appealing, dishes were complex but not fussy with the influence of Indian spices and ingredients. Simply put, everything was delicious. This is an exceptional restaurant.

A luxurious experience. The staff of actively insuring that everything is just right without being a bother. The brunch prices are not out of line with sit-down lunch in SOMA, and a good value for a fancy meal

Good food and service. Some dishes excessively spicy overbearing other flavours. One of the shellfish dishes (lobster) came with remaining pieces of shell. Overall, good food, rich flavours but not sure at par with other 2* michelins.

The ambiance was lack luster, it was empty. The waitstaff did not seem to have a great knowledge or connection to the dishes. The dishes were not spectacular or noteworthy. For the price tag of the dinner we were expecting more.

We did the four-course menu, which was *stunning*. The presentation was excellent, and taste was even better. They served several amuse-bouches too, which were all excellent.

We were a little disappointed with the wine pairing, though. The 2005 Spätlese Riesling was astonishing - certainly the highlight of the night - but the other pairings were less memorable. The French syrah had a lovely, rich aroma, but tasted hollow, not at all what we expected to be paired with lamb. The rioja and the Grüner Veltliner were good but not particularly memorable.

We would definitely come back for the food, but probably not for the wine pairing.

Truly a remarkable experience. Campton Place is extraordinary in every way. From the friendly & professional staff to the exquisite cuisine, we enjoyed every moment at Campton Place. In addition to a beautiful & delicious meal, there were many delightful surprises along the way. We were celebrating a special occasion, and everything about the experience felt special. I highly recommend Campton Place.

Excellent experience. My wife and I went to Mourad and Spruce during this trip and although the food was excellent at both restaurants they both had flaws that showed why Campton Place has two stars and they have one.
Great execution, perfect service and attention to details by all serve staff working together and completely focused.
The food is inventive, marrying Indian spices and techniques with new world cuisine and takes on traditional Indian dishes. Every dish was ambrosial effort bringing joy to my wife and I.
Highly recommended.
Cheers.

We have been to Campton Place several times in the past. We booked for New Year's Eve and from the moment we arrived a feeling of confusion and frustration seemed to fill the air. We had no issues with the table. We were greeted after sitting there for approximately 10 minutes by the sommelier with champagne, which we chose to order. Approximately 5 minutes later our waiter appeared. He appeared stressed and we immediately felt a feeling of 'rushed'. We were advised on how the menu was designed and what to expect. At that time, we requested a wine list. The wine list did not arrive until the final 'hors d'oeurvres' arrived (several bites later). That was because we flagged our waiter down and asked for it again. It appeared as though the kitchen was trying to serve everyone the same thing at approximately the same time. That did not happen for us. Perhaps it was the placement of our table. Overall, we were extremely disappointed with our thousand dollar dinner. We did not feel the quality of the evening deserved the bill.

The restaurant has a loud low rumble sound that was quite distracting. The food and service were very good. The wine pairing was not memorable. We recognize having to pay a premium for dining on Christmas Eve. The meal cost more than we could get a better meal elsewhere on another night. In the end it was worth it.
