Hampton Street Vineyard Ratings and Reviews
The food at Hampton Street is always amazing. Our waiter this time didn't seem to have his whole heart into being at work. After pouring our white wine he put it on the table and didn't bother to put it in the chiller that was adjacent to our table nor did he bother to refill our glasses throughout the evening.
Creative menu in a cozy restaurant downtown
We're in town for the hurrivac, and what a great way to forget Irma for a short time. We both had the tomatillo-corn-jalapeno gazpacho: refreshing, spicy but not too much, moderated by the sweetness of fresh corn kernals. I ordered the seared ahi tuna with edamame. The tuna was incredibly tender and the dots of ginger-soy were a perfect complement to the fish. My husband had a special, grilled swordfish over mushroom risotto. A lovely swordfish steak, perfectly cooked; the risotto was delicious. Service was pleasant, friendly, and the atmosphere is fun. The small space at a level a few steps down from street has a European feel, and the French posters add to that atmosphere. We will definitely return, just hope it's not because of a hurricane.
Our meal was tastefully prepared and presented. We were well attended and served. The wine list is exceptional.
The hard walls, ceiling, and floor accentuate noise, and ventilation is not adequate, which caused food smells to permeate our clothing.
Would suggest a table near the entrance. The private room is likely a better place to dine.
In the top three of restaurants on Main Street.
Great food and service! Wine list is fantastic and extensive, biggest I've seen. My only complaint was the noise, way too loud. They need to figure out how to dampen it. We had a very large group next to our table, plus the bar was full. Everyone was trying to talk over each other. I felt like I had to yell at my wife so she could hear me. If you're looking for a quiet, romantic dinner you should look somewhere else.
This meal (second only to the total solar eclipse) was the highlight of our trip. The oysters were spectacular and the ravioli special was one of the best I've ever tasted. Not every restaurant can cook swordfish right, but this place did it exceptionally well. Lovely wine selection. Their location right across from the Marriott in the downtown area was an added bonus.
We stumbled onto HSV because we were in town for family and the eclipse and found a reservation on Open Table when previously there hadn't been any available options except for one restaurant I wasn't interested in. The availability occurred apparently because HSV decided to open on Sunday to serve folks coming to witness the eclipse. We were delighted. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable making good recommendations. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The wines were reasonably priced and to our liking. This was our first time at HSV but I hope to have many more!
Lovely restaurant with delicious food. Seared Diver scallops with blue corn grits superb. Would return. The only negative is a very noisy dining room which would be hard for conversation. Alodia's has an open dining room similar to Hampton Street Vineyard but noise level much lower (Hampton Street should check to see how they dampen the noise). However, we were able to eat outside on a quiet street and balmy night. Delightful!
Hadn't been in a long time. Love the location and the food and the decor. But - like most restaurants these days, the noise level is way too high.
If I go back, it will be right when they open/slow time.
Hope they will consider working on that, like most of the places around town.
Gentle murmur is one things, but most places way surpass that :/
Food was good but didn't live up to the reputation. Server went to check in availability of fish special and confirmed it was available. About 10 minutes later she came back to apologize because the (larger) table next to us got the last special. Surprising given they sat after she took our order.
Great service by Will. Had a delightful meal and service was impeccable. We ordered drinks and wine then Appetizer-flash fried oysters. .served both hot and crispy. Nicely spaced out meal. Diver scallops, BlackSea Bass, and Buffalo. Each of our plates were beautiful and tasty. Even with desserts, the winner was the fried Apalachicola oysters. This was our second time eating here.
Food was absolutely delicious! Had the macaroni appetizer (best most gourmet Mac I've ever had) and the fish special (swordfish) as my entree. It was cooked to perfection! The service was outstanding and me and my mom have a new place to visit when she's in town!
I selected this restaurant for a business lunch since it was within walking distance of two of the four people in our group. We were seated quickly, and I was even able to request and receive use of the private "wine room" for our lunch, which included a business discussion. However, due to us being in the private room, our waiter didn't have us in the front of his mind during our time there, and, after waiting for a considerable amount of time, we had to find him to ask him to take our order and, later, to bring us our bill. Our waiter was very nice and took care of our needs when he was with us, but it seemed as if he forgot about us as he became busy with the lunch crowd in the rest of the establishment.
Hampton Street Vineyard is a gem in downtown Columbia, both for a cozy dining atmosphere and food. It has an exceptional wine list and is small enough to be intimate yet large enough to offer a diverse menu. My partner and I dined on a summer Saturday evening. In celebration of Bastile Day, I ordered the duck confit macaroni and cheese to start . Simply fabulous. My companion chose the cheese plate as he had ordered it previously and enjoyed the selections. He selected their Sancerre by the glass. Our server was informative without being pushy, prompt with hot bread, and apologetic that I had to wait a moment before bringing my hot appetizer after serving the cheese board. For the entree my choice of the water buffalo ribeye was deliciously flavorful, but more muscular than say, a beef ribeye steak. The side vegetables were tender and fresh, and not overcooked. The sea bass was equally enjoyed by my partner. Dessert was ice cream-basil ricotta, and our second time of having it there. Request that they leave off the shaved chocolate; it's perfect unadulterated. HSV has old world charm and should be a happy dining destination for locals as well as out of towners. The Marriott is located directly across the street. It may be tucked below street level-but it's top drawer dining.
Hampton Street Vineyard is a small restaurant that doesn't get a lot of press but has and excellent wine selection and the best food in Columbia. Very fresh and innovative with a changing menu depending on what they can get locally. Fresh made pasta and sauces are to die for... The staff is knowledgeable about the food and the wines. Must go for date nite.
i selected Hampton Street Vineyard because of the positive reviews and the comments so many made about being able to enjoy conversation in the environment. It was a lovely, quaint restaurant tucked below street level with an impressive ambiance but a very loud group at a nearby table made it very difficult to hear my table mates when we tried to talk. That wasn't the restaurant's fault but affected our enjoyment. Would definitely like to dine there again.
Chose Hampton St to celebrate an early Mothers Day dinner for a dear friend I wouldn't be able to see on the actual day of. They didn't disappoint! I had the duck and it was presented well and cooked to perfection. She had the crab cakes and said they were delicious. Since I have seafood allergies our server was very attentive to those as well. We chose a nice bottle of wine to go with our meal. It had been years since I'd eaten there (I live out of town), but I won't wait that long again! Thank you Hampton St for helping me make Mothers Day special for a very special person!
We had dinner in celebration of my daughters graduation from university. The ambiance was beautiful, service was great, wine was very good with a wide selection, food was very tasty and everone enjoyed their meal. They could stand a wider food menu selection. My 16 year old son (somewhat picky eater) wanted the ceasar salad on the menu but wanted to add chicken; at first they were not sure the chef would do that, but when dinner was served, they brought out a wonderful ceasar with grilled chicken. My daughter needed gluten free options which they did not have on the menu but they worked to accommodate her needs and she was able to have a very tasty steak and veges. They put the sauce on top of the steak which they should have either asked her or put it on the side if not sure. Overall, it was a perfect dinner celebration and we'd definitely recommend to our friends and family
