I've been going to Campton Place for breakfast for years. I would say probably 25 years. Yikes! I just went yesterday and have got to say, while the prices are high, the service is unbelievably great! They will treat you like royalty!

A refined and beautiful dining room in the Union Square area. Very expensive and has at times been listed in USA top ten lists. From the foie gras to the champagne cart, Everything is high class.

The Campton Place Restaurant is truly THE San Francisco treat (sorry Rice a Roni). The food is superb, although some menu items are for the culinarily adventurous only. This is a great place to go for a special occasion - the elegance of the hotel and its dining room will make you feel that you've stepped back in time. And PS, wearing a jacket for men is "suggested"

I give it 3/5 stars because of the portion size and price.

I went to Campton because of the reviews on this site.

I ordered a suckling pig entree a soup and a desert.

The suckling pig entree was TINY !!!

At first i thought it was a sample apettizer on the house or something like that.

The suckling pig entree itself was not that great actually - what little there was. My wife had some poularde entree. That too was rediculously small.

The desert was actually the best part of the meal - it was good.

The wine was also good.

The final bill for 2 was $220 (includng tax + tip).

That was a record for me !!

Never had I paid so much for a meal and recieved so little food !!

I was actually hungry after that meal and had to down a protien shake later.

Even Kate Moss would starve on that diet !!

So to summarize,

* Desert was great
* Entree portion was rediculously small
* Wine was good
* $75 for a 3 course meal per person is too exepensive for what you get.

The date of this review is 31 August 2007 in case it doesn't say.

Pros: Great deserts, great wine, great service

Cons: Insane prices, microscopic portions

A week after eating here, we're still talking about it. A 3.5 hour meal where we felt like royalty. They don't miss a step. Quietly, discretely, like high class hotel dining used to be. SUPERB food that you could NEVER make at home. Double oyster soup? I'll have another bowl, please. Guinea hen so tender you can cut it with a fork? Yes, please. No room for dessert? You best find it, because they will NOT let you leave without trying something. We spent more than we did at any two restaurants combined, and it was worth it. GO

Pros: WINE WINE WINE SERVICE SERVICE SERVICE

The service was good and so was the food. The portion sizes are on the smaller side so I would recommend either 4 courses or the tasting menu. Dessert was outstanding--if you like chocolate, order the Soft Chocolate Savarin. You won't be sorry!

My Wall. St. friend visited SF and took me out to dinner because one of my stock analysis made him about $2million bucks (AMKR rec: buy) in March. So we decided to try out Campton Place...

Well, between the two of us, we spent about $300... and the food was only so so. I've paid a lot less money for better food. The quantity was small, the presentation was typical, and the taste was about the same as you would get at Le Charm Bistro or Tangerine (which would've cost only about $100 for 2 people).

If you're below 40, eaten all over the world, you'll find the ROI on this restaurant to be less than satisfactory.

head to Campton Place. My husband made reservations to celebrate my birthday--it was a surprise. We were greeted by name. We ordered the six course chef's tasting menu ("put yourself in the chef's hands," our pleasant waitress said) and the wine pairing too. Our hestitation, beyond price, was inclusion of sweetbreads in one course. Our waitiress asked if there were something we might want to substitute, our response was the lamb! She consulted with the chef and returned from the kitchen with a thumbs up! She even changed the wine pairing to complement the lamb. That was one of our favorites, but all six were fabulous. The restaurant had only a few other patrons--that could be a turn-off to some, but to us it was a blessed alternative to yelling at each other across the table as we have at so many wonderful yet overcrowded venues.

Simply put, the best 4 star dining experience I've had. No wonder Daniel Humm is being touted as one of the hottest chefs in America. We only had time for the four course option. With all the amuse bouches(4), it seemed like 7 or 9 courses anywhere else. Started with a plate with 5 little tasters. Delightful. Other highlights: the big eye tuna carpaccio with the foie gras, terrine of pulled pork, parsnip cappuccino w/sweetbreads, Maine lobster w/passion fruit. Even the palate cleansing vanilla ice cream w/balsamic was excellent. Not only got 5 dessert amuse bouches but 4 more to take with us. Service was great and the timing was impeccable. We got there at 6 and needed to be out of there by 7:30 and our waitress Melissa timed everything perfectly. Not only will I be back but cant wait to try the 10 course tasting menu.

Ive been lucky to experience many extraordinary moments at Campton Place over the past two years. My most recent visit confirmed my view that Daniel Humm is a master chef and Campton Place is the finest restaurant in San Francisco. At my recent visit I indulged the tasting menu with wine pairings. Fifteen courses, eleven wines and three and half hours later I left speechless. I still dream about the sea urchin mouse, the trio of tartare with sake, grilled watermelon with pistachios, foie gras creme brulee, dory with saffron sauce, squab with truffle sauce and a sweet corn sabayon with bacon brittle. I was amazed. I have always found the service to be flawless.

One of the best meals I have had in San Francisco. This should be on the short list of top restaurants in the city. The Chef was just on the cover of Food & Wine magazine for being named one of the best 10 new chefs in America!

The food was perfect. The service was prompt, polite, and helpful. The chef came out to thank us for dining ther when we should have been thanking him for the amazing cuisine. They are very proud of their restaurant and it shows.

Simply put. Best meal I've ever had. Not a single misstep. Outstanding wine list with appropriate recommendation from sommelier. Absolutely love the foam emphasis. Fish prepared to perfection. Can't wait for another chance to travel to SF.

As I was eating here, I knew that it was too good for me, but I enjoyed it anyway.

The food was lovely, tasty, the presentation beautiful, the setting very elegant and yet comfortable and the service flawless.

This is definitely a special occasion place if you have some money to blow, and somebody who is worthy.

Chef Daniel Humm's gift to San Francisco: Stellar! Three-Course menu @ $58, a true bargain with three selections from appetizers, entrees or desserts augmented with multi amuse-gueules courtesy of the chef featuring a spectacular lobster cappuccino ON THE HOUSE! Half way through the meal giddy with delight you'll truly savour each and every course and palate cleanser. Foie gras tasting flight alone a uniquely fabulous dish. Unimaginable. Unbelievable. Brilliant service. Spectacular dining experience.

The new Campton Place restaurant is probably one of the most thrilling culinary expierences I've had in a long time. Under the direction of executive chef Daniel Humm magic things are cooking in the kitchen of Campton. From the champagne to foie gras to perfectly cooked steak the clean tastes and crisp presentation are just spectacular.

Any chef who walks into the Campton Place kitchen must contend with history---Birnbaum to Ogden, Manrique to Humm. Change has come again with chef Srijith Gopinathan, part of the Taj Hotels regime. Brown leather now dresses the dining…
