Small nice restaurant. Bartender seemed distracted and attire disheveled...he was “okay” ...our waitress was inattentive, gave perfunctory responses when questioned hostess very cordial and waiter Will checked on our table very graciously and charmingly...
Mixed bag experience. Food and ambience sit on

One of our favorites in Columbia; we dine there whenever we are in town. They have been consistently top notch over the years. Easy step down from street level; there is a pleasant intimacy in the dining - there is also another dining room that lends itself to groups. Nice wine list and well-stocked bar but what sets them apart is the food - a creative menu, artfully preparsd and presented dishes and terrific service.

Service was wonderful and quick (we were on a business lunch so this was a plus) and the food was delicious and there were tons of options without it being overwhelming. This was great as I had to plan this lunch for a group that I wasn't really sure of allergies/preferences. Highly recommend.

My husband had the buffalo and I had the swordfish. He said the buffalo was a little tough but that was expected (and made note of by our waitress.) The flavor was great, however. The swordfish was very good.
There was a USC football game that night, so the restaurant was very quiet which was nice.

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.

Great Meal. Flash fried Oyster starter was outstanding. Entree special, Swordfish with mussels and lobster bisque was excellent. Only minor negative was sitting in the smallish "Wine Cooler" area that was quite noisy.

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.

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.
