Hampton Street Vineyard Ratings and Reviews

We came based upon the many reviews. They were wrong. We had a meal with tasteless courses that were presented very sloppily. And, the dining room was filled with kithen exhaust leaving us smelling of fried foods. Our crabcakes were burned outside and cold inside with little flavor, bland crab? Our goat cheese was also burned and tasted as such. The elk chop was burned and charred with the center cold and mysteriously mushy. This chop was tossed atop a sloppy mixed mess of once individual foods. The NY Strip was not rare but a charred dry chunk of cardboard. However, our server was very nice and our cocktails excellent. Should we return it will only be for cocktails and then a real dinner elsewhere.

We really enjoyed our evening at The Hampton Street Vineyard. The wait staff and kitchen were particularly attentive to my wife's dietary restrictions and worked hard to be sure we had what we needed. The Lamb Shank was absolutely amazing... by far the best I've ever had. As the evening drew to a close, the owners invited us to hang out with them and some of their friends at a community table toward the front of the restaurant and we got to know them, learn about their passion for the business and get a private tour of their wine room. Great night, great people, awesome food. Highly, highly recommend.

We celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary and it was a nice experience. Very quiet like we wanted. Our server Steve was very nice and knowledgeable about the food and drink choices. The food portion was adequate and the food itself was tasty.

The food was creative, but not especially tasty. Venison Osso Buco was dry and tough; caramel bacon apple cheddar pie tasted like apple pie -- good, but no bacon. Not as good as I thought it would be. Maybe my expectations were too high.

So convenient to the art museum and Township Auditorium. Zack always makes us feel at home. His timing is impeccable. We never feel rushed and he makes sure we are on time for an event or concert. Tuna and Salmon are our favorites.

This was my fourth or fifth visit to the Hampton Street Vineyard. Their base menu has superb diversity that is always enhanced by their specials. This visit was no exception. The wahoo special was very delicious.
The HSV wine list and cellar is one of the best in COLA and has selections at all price points.
Plan on continuing to visit and enjoy the HSV in the future.

Hampton Vineyards is always a dependable choice for a good meal. Saturday night was no exception. The duck was well prepared and the addition of figs and corn made it a special treat. Wish the wine by the glass choices were a bit more robust but HV remains a favorite.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Hampton Street Vineyard recently. We requested a quiet table for 3, and they put us in the wine cellar, a small quiet room lined with wine bottles. The fried oysters were delicious, and we all enjoyed our entrees. I had a special, swordfish fillet with pesto topping and pomegranate garnish, and the other two diners had the short ribs and crispy skin duck, respectively. All were as described and a treat to eat. I recommend this restaurant enthusiastically.

Food, service, and wine list make Hampton Street Vineyard an always reliable choice for a great experience. My only caution is that noise level is very loud making conversation for groups larger than four very difficult.

Poor experience. Understaffed, uninspired menu, cold/old food served, live plant hanging on the wall attracted fruit flies that were buzzing around our head for majority of meal. We never complain but they were missing on all fronts so we shared our experience. Manager/owner did not charge us for the meal but seemed more annoyed that apologetic. Will not go back.

Slow service. Meal not cooked properly (steak over done, potatoes not cooked through, and veggies soggy). Few vegetarian options and chef unwilling to accommodate (even after we called ahead and was assured that dishes could be made vegetarian). I will not return.

We were in Columbia for the Fightin' Texas Aggie and South Carolina fb game and found this gem due to its location right next to the Marriott where we stayed. My wife and I ate there Thursday night and were so impressed took our out of town friends and daughter back Friday. The owner talked to us both nights, our server Zach was awesome, and even the lady at the front desk took a personal interest in us. Food was great and the wine list was spectacular and reasonable for the quality level. I could eat here every night. Felt like home. Heartily recommend.

Noise level - the main dining room was so loud that it was virtually impossible to carry on a conversation with tablemates. The restaurant has a lengthy wine list and is proud of its "Award of Excellence" from Wine Spectator. We selected a bottle of a vineyard-designate pinot noir and were presented a wine from a different vineyard, but the waiter didn't notice or recognize the difference. This was the only wine from that winery the restaurant had in stock. That's not consistent with Wine Spectator's award. Food has declined over the years from creative to "Hmm, that's different, let's try it and see what happens." Also, my entrée was cold. When the bill came, we had been overcharged for an after-dinner cognac. The waiter said, "Just take it out of my tip, it was my mistake." Overall, the experience was Fair, but there are better places in town to spend $100 per person on dinner.

I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday and made a reservation at Hampton St Vineyard and everything was excellent. Our waitress made wonderful menu recommendations, she didn't hover over us during our meal and she surprised my boyfriend with a candle in his dessert. Overall we had a wonderful dining experience and will be back.
