How is Campton Place doing?

How come no one talks about Campton Place anymore whenever the subject of high-end restaurants comes up? It's always Gary Danko, La Folie, Fifth Floor, Aqua, Aquerello, Masa and The Dining Room. (Am I missing anyone?)

Campton Place used to be always mentioned together with the above. Then they had a renovation and "vanished." Last time I ate there about two years ago, it definitely would stand up to any of the above (both in quality and prices). The service was a bit formal, I recall, but not intolerable. The wine steward did an excellent job, I remember.

I also had breakfast there shortly before that and that was quite memorable. Again, the service was a bit restrained (like they wanted to give some privacy which is understandable in a dining room of a fancy hotel) but everything was first-rate. Coffee, teas, breads, jams and pastries were excellent.
