Really enjoyed the dinner. This is about the only bar I've been to (except my house) that carries Tanqueray Rangpur. How refreshing! I found the short-rib tasty, but VERY skimpy. On the one bone, there may have been an ounce of meat. But overall I enjoyed the restaurant and will come back.
Good food, but it was so loud! I had the oysters yum and my friend the water buffalo. Yep water buffalo. It was really a pot roast. The oysters were great. The wine list impressive. But the noise really loud.
Wonderful service and outstanding food
The place was filled with smoke from the kitchen - maybe the fans were broken — and the wine was lukewarm (two words: cellar temperature— that’s what the markup is for!)
The food was excellent and the service was attentive
The menu is very unique. A lot of original entrees. The food was very good and the service was terrific. Absolutely no wait with a reservation on a Friday night.
Excellent service. The water buffalo and cheesecake were great!
Wonderful as always. Classic date night spot with great wine list and outstanding food. Short ribs are wonderful.
We had a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner at Hampton Vineyard. The restaurant is one our favorites whether having appetizers at the bar, lunch, or a more elaborate dinner. Food and service are always first rate. Would highly recommend to locals or those visiting Columbia.
Enjoyed the cuisine. Fried Oysters were the best. Good menu selection.
We had a great Valentine's Day dinner. The food was excellent. We both tried the lobster ravioli and it was delicious. Topped with big chunks of lobster.
Leigh and his staff are amazing and the food never disappoints. Will is our favorite and we would go back for his hospitality any time! Always a great experience!
Probably the best lunch dish I've had in Columbia in years. All three were delicious -- no disappointments at all. I take my two daughters to a Valentines lunch every year (this was our 20th) and I could not have been happier with the experience.
I decided to celebrate Valentine's Day one evening earlier due to my busy schedule. Hampton Street Vineyard was hopping with customers. The staff was doing a great job of serving each course with appropriate timing and servicing beverages as needed and requested. The bar, although small, is always a great place for conversation and appetizers. The wine list is very very good and priced affordably. Michelle does an expert job mixing cocktails with high quality and top shelf liquors. The menu was very appealing for all pallets. I had swordfish, which was a thick loin cut allowing for great flavor while staying moist. We also had a very nice lobster appetizer with roasted fennel and a light tarragon sauce. The lobster was on a very nice polenta cake, and just the right amount to balance all of the flavors and set us up for the entree.
I highly recommend Hampton Street Vineyard for any occasion calling for fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere.
The meatloaf was out of this world, it was moist with great flavor. would definitely recommend it.
The food was extraordinary. Wine list best around. It is our new favorite for special occasions. Our server was attentive and friendly. Unfortunately, I went to collect the car in the rain and my wife miscalculated the tip. I'm going back first chance downtown and give him another 15%. She tipped well but not nearly enough. Get there early to find a place to park. Have cash if you go in a garage. The check out machine spit out my credit card under my car. Fortunately, I had a five in my wallet. It would be great if they had valet parking. Even with the parking aggravation, we're going back soon.

Always love Hampton Street Vineyard. The specials are always spectacular. The salmon special is always a hit and when they have it paired with Gumbo, you cannot pass up.
Everything was great, from the service to the atmospheres, to the food!
Seemingly traditional dishes done very well. Excellent house made pasta. Attentive service.
Best meal I have had in Columbia in a long time! Excellent.
