Great menu with wonderful flavors. Only concern was that the appetizer (bacon bruschetta) was sub par. It should have been on small bread but was served on a large piece of Italian bread with a tough and chewy thick piece of undercooked bacon. It was more like fat back than bacon. We told our server that the appetizer was not good, ate very little of it but were still charged $15 for it.
Everything was delicious !

This is my favorite restaurant in Columbia. I eat here every time I am in town which is at least once per month. The staff is courteous, fun and friendly and I always make a new friend at the bar. Great food and wine.
Not worth the trip
Wife and I went for dinner, hoping to find a new place to regularly visit. She had crab cakes (on menu) and a pasta dish (special.) I had a BLT board (on special) and the duck (on menu.) Crab cakes were pretty decent, nothing special. The sauce was (a chutney) actually quite good, if a bit stronger than I'd like to see paired with something as delicate as crab. The BLT board left me wondering 'where's the foie' and wishing whoever designed it had some familiarity with the idea of balancing a dish. It was sweet on sweet on fatty on sweet. The bacon could have been smokey and salty, and the tomatoes bright and acidic; instead the bacon was sweet, the tomatoes were a jam (and an overly sweet one at that.) The whole dish was one dimensional and rather disappointing, though palatable and likely the best thing we had all night. Pasta was tough, and doughy. Very clearly over worked, by quite a bit. Was nearly sauce-less as well, a shame as the sauce had good flavor. The duck prosciutto, rather than being cut to lardons was in large slices, making it difficult to eat, and poorly distributed. Duck breast was skinless . What's the point? It was also breaded, and seemingly deep fried. Gnocchi was initially mistaken for polenta. It appeared to have been cooked in a sheet tray, and cubed rather than formed as gnocchis and boiled. It was a glutenous mess, I'd guess more than half flour, and again grossly overworked. The wine menu was extensive, and the front of house staff was good; however a good restaurant has to be based on food worth eating. If you come here at all: make it for a couple of drinks, then go elsewhere for dinner.
While our waiter was a little confused, the kitchen staff went above and beyond accommodating vegan dishes. I will definitely recommend this restaurant for a vegan meetup and to anyone who likes good food and wine!
I was looking to try a different restaurant to celebrate my birthday and while doing some research, I found the Hampton Street Vineyard. They had good reviews, so I thought to give it a chance. My family and I really enjoyed the food. Everything was delicious and even though we didn't order any wine, they had a variety to choose from. It was a pleasant experience and I would definitely recommend it going.
Outstand food prepared by knowledgeable chef
Great fine dining in Columbia, SC. The food pairing is excellent for a full flavored dish. The wine list is also great.
My husband's birthday. Romantic.
Loved the atmosphere. The food was amazing. We're planning on going back soon. Big variety of wines.
Quiet Saturday night
We had a party of 5 and all ate a different main course. Four approved of their meal (one being me who found the fish special very good) and one thought the duck was a poor alternative with a thin sauce. The ceasar salad had way too much pepper corn in what was otherwise a great salad. Server was very attentive.

Thoughtful Staff and Awesome Birthday Experience
We brought a friend for her birthday and the staff really just took care of us from beginning to end - whether it was the hostess, bartender or our waiter - they were just all awesome. Great meal, great drinks, great dessert. Go here and you will get taken care of.
We really enjoyed our first time at HSV. Food was super yummy and service was good. Only disappointment. ....we made a reservation via open table and received a confirmation. When we got to the restaurant , they didn't have record of our reservation. They were not busy at all that night, so it worked out. Not sure if it was the fault of opentable.com or the restaurants that they didn't have our reservation! ?
Another nice meal
This was the third time I have eaten there and they have been consistently good. Unfortunately they are not vegetarian friendly. Their sesame tuna was tasty and my date enjoyed her scallops. We enjoyed the deconstructed smore.
Great food and service
This was the second Valentine's Day my boyfriend and I went to Hampton Street Vineyard, and we were just as impressed this year as we were last year. The service was outstanding as usual, and the food was absolutely delicious. We love the cozy atmosphere and creative dishes, and the server was very considerate about our special diet restrictions. I will certainly be back.
Great meal as always
We had a great meal at Hampton Street last weekend, I had the lamb shank with a delicious demi glaze and my wife had the monk fish. We've never had anything bad here!

The restaurant was very loud. To the point where it was difficult to hold a conversation. They offered an extensive wine list of various prices, some affordable some not so much. The food was good. I saw several things I was interested in ordering.

Napa Valley in Columbia, SC
Followed up on a recommendation by a friend and decided to dine at Hampton Street Vineyard for the celebration of a special person's birthday. The restaurant was cozily located a few steps below the level of Hampton Street across the street from the Columbia Marriott. Upon arrival, my party was immediately greeted by the hostess and seated at a comfortable in the small dining room. Our server was very attentive and immediately introduced himself and ran down the specials and then proceeded to bring us water and bread. The menu was very diverse and the daily specials added to these diversities. The Hampton Street Vineyard also had a very expansive wine menu with bottles that ranged in a price from $40 to $500, with a very good selection of fine wines at the all price levels. Selected dishes included a seafood dish (scallops) and a pork dish. Both were very tasty and their presentation was superb. The desert menu had some interesting items, including the cheesecake lollipops, which were excellent. I will definitely return to the Hampton Street Vineyard to sample another great wine and entrée.

Extremely good entrees. I had scallop/pork belly ensemble. They played off each other quite well. The waitress was friendly yet professional.

I made a request on my OpenTable reservation for a quite table or something special for my girlfriends birthday. The gentleman that seated us had no clue and put us in the middle of the dining area. I asked for the manager and he wasn't very concerned and offered us a free drink. They had three days notice and simply had no clue or plan to accommodate my request. Very disappointing.

We went on a Monday night and the service was good and the food was good to. For columbia it's considered fine dining, but in reality it's just not. Great atmosphere and huge wine list this is definitely a good place for a nice dinner. Paid around 120 for appetizers, wine, entree and tip. food is good for the price. Not outstanding but it's good.
New Year's Eve Dinner
The restaurant was filled with the smoke and smell from the kitchen. On the ride home both my wife and myself could smell the kitchen smoke in our cloths. We were seated close to the open kitchen. This may not have been as much of a problem if seated further away.
Wonderful experience for my anniversary.
My wife and I loved this experience. Nice romantic atmosphere. Definitely going back.

The food is wonderful. My only objection to HSV is that it is so horribly loud that it is impossible to talk without shouting.
Great food - Poor service
We had a reservation for 8pm and arrived at 755pm. We were greeted and seated at 810pm. In any normal situation this would be considered expectable. However, the restaurant is small (maybe 20 tables) and the host walked past us at least three times without greeting. Once we were seated, it took an additional 10 minutes for the server to greet us and offer a glass of water. The server delivered the wrong bottle of wine claiming the vineyard changed their name (clearly not the case). The food was excellent and the wine selection was vast. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this restaurant to my friends as there are other locations in the area comparable with better service.

One of my favs
This has become one of my go to restaurants when I am in Columbia. The service is always good and the food is excellent. Never had a bad meal. We ordered the fried oysters and mussels for apps. I had the salmon. We were a party of 5 and we were all pleased with our dinner. The wine list is amazing. The only bad thing is the parking but I think it's like that in any city restaurants.

The food at Hampton Street Vineyard was delicious. We really loved the short ribs and the eggplant oscar and our waiter Todd was great.
One of our favorite Columbia restaurants
Great food, top-notch service, and a terrific wine list! The menu features locally-produced products and is a blend of regional dishes and classic cuisine; all prepared and presented artfully. Portions are large; I don't think we've ever made it to dessert. The wine list is extensive; it has won an award from Wine Spectator and they obviously take pride in their offerings. There is a small side dining room that also doubles as their wine library - I always assumed it was for private parties but I was told on my last visit that you can request to dine there when making a reservation and they'll seat you there if it isn't otherwise taken - I'll have to try it next time. Service is knowledgeable, prompt and professional. The dining room can be noisy when full; the room is open and the surfaces are hard, which may contribute to sounds reflecting around. I'm usually put off by noisy restaurants but I don't care when it comes to the Hampton Street Vineyard; it's that good. Just raise your voice a little more; you'll be fine.
Always a pleasure!
The staff is always kind, low key and accommodating. The food is no surprises, but stellar. Always, the veggies are fresh and the meats and sauces beautifully paired and delicious!

It was the best dining experience I have ever received. Our waiter Zach Made the whole experience fun and recommended great dishes. I plan on coming back because of it.
Great food, wine, and staff!
My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary. I surprised her with this dinner and some roses waiting at the restaurant. Food was amazing, very large wine selection, and the staff was the best!!
Well worth your time. Excellent menu and the dishes met our expectations. Very pleasant staff, attentive but not hovering. Just a bit noisy, but not intolerable.
A new found gem
A great romantic place. You will enjoy the hospitality. Go now!
