Campton Place Ratings and Reviews
We had high expectations having gone to many Michelin starred restaurants around the world so my comments are from that perspective. The Campton is way over priced compared to others with more interesting creative foods, better ambiance, and better overall experience. As for service, we sat for 35 min before ANY food arrived and since it was New Years eve had a glass of champagne costing $75. On a positive note, spite of being a pre-fixe dinner they were able to accommodate our deadline for getting to the symphony.
my first time in this restaurant.campton place has always had a good reputation for lovely dining. we were seated promptly in a nice booth.the sommelier presented us with 3 champagne options per glass ...mid $30 and $75 .really? the indian inspired menu would have to live up to a very high degree for me and my guest.very reasonable for $29/2course and $39 /3 plus a 5 course chefs for $95.
amuse bouche was a cold strawberry tomato with basil seeds and veg. very savory.the next course of crab puff and lamb kebob naan took a very long time to arrive. i had opted for a cheese plate of 2 small pieces of california goat and cow...one soft one hard.served with crackers(ugh)and nut fruit bread(yum) with radish ,candied hazelnut and jam was tasty .
crab puff was mushy and could have used some chutney or a fruit . the lamb kebob was the best thing on the menu that i ate. very lovely naan with many kebobs .we both had the chicken tikka which was too spicy without benefit of raita or chutney and the rice was mucky.we opted out of dessert but ended with coffee.
service started out bright but no refills of water or iced tea and requests for them went unheeded until the end.
Wow! We have been to so many top-name restaurants here in the Bay Area and around the world, many with Michelin stars, and we're frankly tired of the same seemingly formulaic predictable cuisine. Too often we leave feeling like it was not special, and not worth the money. So when we celebrated a family birthday we looked for something top quality but unique and we certainly found it here. Indeed, this meal was truly outstanding in all ways, easily living up to its two Michelin stars. All four of us chose the Chef's five-course tasting menu, and each course was exemplary, borrowing with subtle but unmistakable elegance and complexity the essence of Indian flavor. The chef is a master of his craft and our mouths were often agape after our first bites, and we remarked at the lingering after-tastes on our palates. After dessert and coffee we noticed we did not feel heavy or bloated, despite six total courses (including a complimentary first one). Portion size was ideal. And none of the dishes were too spicy, which was initially a concern. We're pretty jaded by current haute cuisine, so to write these words means a lot. Service was excellent. The kitchen was a little slow during the first couple of courses and they apologized for the delay, but the atmosphere was pleasant, even with the spacious dining room open on one end to an adjacent lounge area. This was an expensive meal, particularly when we included a bottle of champagne, but we unanimously felt this experience was - finally - well worth the money. We'll definitely be back, and have already been telling others in the meantime.
This is still a great place but unfortunately I did not enjoy my meal. It was a black Bass dish over very plain coconut rice. it just was not good. I only eat fish and it was the only fish item on the menu. The appetizer I had, yogurt croquettes was as terrific as in previous visits. Nothing of the dessert menu appeale to me which is pretty shocking since I'm a dessert a Holic. Not sure if I would go back.
Went for late Sunday Brunch before going to SF Ballet. It was very family friendly, comfortable and good service. The food was good. It’s very expensive. I took my 14 yr old daughter. Over $200 for the 2 of us. I fully expected the price but was also hoping for something super memorable about the food. They did ask about allergies and replaced the 1st course because it had an ingredient I couldn’t eat. It was likely the best part of the meal and I really appreciated how it was handled.
The server handed us a short list of champagne choices when we sat down - all expensive. We have to ask for a wine list to get some better value bottles to order. We ordered the 2-course menu and the food is innovative and good. The appetizer course was big as a main course, so when the main course came most of us were already filled. The kitchen should have a better sense of portion size.
Perhaps because we were a party of 6 people there was a 20% gratuity automatically added to the bill, yet it was not pointed out to us. We added another 20% to the final bill! Fortunately one of us discovered at the last minute and we scratched out the added amount.
The chef is talented but the overall management and philosophy needs big improvement.
The food was absolute amazing .. Chef Shrijit does an excellent job NOT compromising on the taste of the traditional Indian dishes along with the Californian spin .. the flavors are spot on .. takes you on the spice route as mentioned .. plus the wine pairing was perfection !
What a pleasant surprise for my wife and I. The three course prix fix lunch we had was spectacular. We each ordered different items so we could share and try a greater variety of items. Our favorites were the lamb dosa appetizer, chicken main course and the roasted pineapple desert. The food was flavorful, exotic and interesting. We highly recommend this restaurant.
For a highly rated, expensive restaurant the starters were a disappointment ( lamb kebab naan and crab pillows), especially following after the excellent chef's amuse bouche. The entrees: tandoori chicken and shrimp hoppers were excellent. The waiters need to go to" charm school" and also be trained in what is expected at an upper level establishment. Cocktails should be served with enough time to savor them before all the other courses which were pushed at rapid pace. The waiters should add to the diners pleasure rather than taking charge and hovering for a quick order of food and forcing a rapid table use, especially as the place was not busy. Could be good, but wasn't.
My first visit to Campton Place. Unfortunately, they did not wow me as I had hoped. The amuse bouche was a cold soup and quite delicious. The appetizer was lobster and it was fantastic. For my main was a sandwich with naan and lamb. It had a lot of grease on it and cheese inside and was very difficult to eat. It was not high end at all - a disappointment. The waiter we had was very cold and did not seem to be enjoying his job. The rest of the service staff was quite good. The dessert was not memorable. What is with the cheap furniture and tacky place mat? Where are the white tablecloths? I get why they have lost a star.
Of all the restaurants I've visited in the world, this is the very best. My all-time favorite. 14 courses of the most interesting and varied foods, with surprising flavors and textures, amazing presentations and incredible imagination. The service is stellar. Plan on about 3 hours for dinner. You will not be sorry.
The food was everything we had hoped for and more - chef Sri’s take on various traditional dishes and new inventions were delicious and took us on a wondrous and very enjoyable culinary journey that will be worth remembering for a long time; the service was top notch and caring and attentive though the explanations could have have been enunciated more clearly and with better diction (ie diction that comports well with respective Indic languages that are the sources for the names of various ingredients and dishes); and finally, the overall ambiance could have been far better than it really was - we were either left listening to the loud cries of a child throwing tantrums for the better part of three hours or the loud noises of the same child’s video game (super Mario brothers, I think). These noises weren’t just affecting us - clearly the whole restaurant was affected and the staff were unable or unwilling to work with the parents of the misbehaving child to make things better for other patrons. We were just glad that we were seated far away from the said child.
This is our second time at Campton Place for Thanksgiving dinner. It is fabulous. The food is unique and well prepared. For example, one course was a choice between fig and endive and lobster with a fabulous sauce. You still get a turkey course, but it is not your main course. Plus, the service is the best of any restaurant I have been to. This is becoming a tradition for us.
Awesome 3 course lunch with wife to celebrate our anniversary. They greeted us with the typical Taj welcome. Overtly courteous staff and the chef complimentary soup and the anniversary cake just nailed it. A michelin star restaurant with perfect Indian mix of spices and experimental touch of puffed rice on some of the dishes added to the beauty. The royal champagne collection was nothing to complain about. Totally enjoyed the portion size. Would definitely come back again.
Not the standard of a michelin 2 stars. 1 dish was good, the rest of the tasting menu was disappointing: tomato salad really? Apart from the food, the rest is really not a michelin star standard: poor table setting with plastic table set, poor service with noone helding the chair for you, a lot of traffic as the kitchen is also used for other restaurant of the hotel..
The food was truly special. The chef not only provides wonderful layers of flavors but adds many textural elements to add to the experience. The vegetarian offerings were the best I’ve seen. The buttermilk fried mushrooms were the fav !! But everything was great.
