Exclusive aspects of The Camden House include private wine club, private screening room, another screen that comes out of the ceiling in the main room, committee-based membership that controls access to the most desirable areas and times of the lounge, ambience, live music, dancing and a certain je ne sais quoi especially appealing for entertainment industry power lunches as much as evening rendezvous.

The much awaited opening of The Camden House is expected to attract influential artists, guests and L.A. luminaries.

The bar and the restaurant looks great, the meals and the room both have a flair for success. The drink selection at Camden House is also something to be sipped. The bar menu was designed with signature drinks such as the Long Island Ice Tea and Martinis, along with a well-thought out wine list to accompany any meal.
Appetizer Platter 
We started with a great selection of Camden East Appetizer suggested by our waitress; Crispy Baby Calamary, was tendear, crispy and delicious; Baked Lobster on Fried Tofu, great as well, Iced Shrimp cocktail, the tasty Seared Maine Scallop, and the delicious Baked Unagi “Feuille De Brick” Egg Roll; this one is a must try, I will go for another again again…
Endive and Walnut Salad                                   Squash Soup          

Our choice of salad was the endive salad with walnuts, on a delicious vinaigrette dressing, and the soup that we choose was an excellent choice of squash soup, that was perfect for the cold evening. Creamy and deliciously
prepared by the chef Olivier Russell.
Pan Roasted Halibut with Lentils
We also had a nice salad to start our seconds; I dipped my fork into a fabulous entrée of Pan-Roasted Halibut with Lemon-Caper Beurre “Noisette” accompanied by puys Lentils and Pancetta Casserole, it was truly amazing. 
Filet Mignon Tournedos with Porcini Polenta
We also sampled the Grilled Filet Mignon Tournedos, with Porcini Polenta, Braised Rapini on Marsala sauce.

The main entrees were all cleverly designed as mini-art portraits
worthy of a camera click.
Mango Sorbet with Fresh Berries                       Bar and Lounge Area        
We finished our meal with a refreshing dessert of Mango Sorbet with fresh berries, it was delicious!

If you want to relax, Camden House offers a comfortable bar area complete with relaxing couches, a candlelit outdoor patio dining area facing the street, which offers diner's the perfect after-dinner hideaway for some nightcaps. In fact, the entire restaurant flows in a consoling fashion, it's not too pretentious yet absolutely not mundane.

Bar and Lounge Area
The décor is inviting and exactly what many of us look for after a long day of cellular phones and lap tops. I opted to dine indoors because there's a direct view of the bar from most tables and I always seize an opportunity to watch beautiful people dining.
