Just great. Best food in South Carolina. Simply Awesome. Our first time was perfect. Our second trip was even better than our one trip. Best Crab Cakes in the USA.
Had a wonderful dinner with my husband and daughter. We tried most of the small plates and shared so that we could taste a lot of the menu. Everything was fantastic. The corn ravioli with lobster was my favorite. My daughter loved her braised short rib and my husband was raving about the scallops. We ordered too much and left too full, but next time we’ll save room for dessert. Service was great and cocktails were tasty. Will definitely return!
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner! Service was on point and the food was remarkable. The experience was top notch and I would put it up against any Restaurant in Charleston. Keep up the dining gem that you are before the secret is out. Will definitely be back and will share with all friends.
Food was outstanding as usual. Had corn ravioli which have never rven heard about before. Was great and not so much food just great what you get.
We had a great night.
The food was excellent and the upstairs bar was outstanding. However the restaurant service was horrible. We had to ask for bread!! It took 20 minutes to get a bottle of wine! Needs lots of improvement.
Food was pretty good - not 'great'. Salad 'weak', entree (veggie ravioli) a bit disappointing and definitely too expensive for what it was. Service was exceptional.
Outstanding food and service we had our daughters in town and wanted them to experience Hamptons new venue. They were very impressed.
Wonderful addition to Sumter. My families favorite place (other than Rafters and The Sidebar).
Absolutely fantastic! My wife and I celebrated our 34th Anniversary and they made it special. The pork chop was very good and the steak was delicious! We travel a lot and have been to many great steak houses, but the Ribeye at Hamptons was the best I have had in a very long time! Kudos to the chef! The wait staff was excellent!
This is our favorite place to eat in Sumter. Very friendly, great food. Sunday was very slow, and it was the kitchen not the waitress.
Wow we are so impressed with the food and atmosphere at Hamptons.
Drinks, appetizers, entrees and desserts superb as always.
Fabulous as always!
We are amazed at the creative cuisine! To think someone has the gift of combining such varied foods and seasonings and it blends so deliciously! The grilled octopus and melon salad appetizers were delicious. The Rack of Lamb and Grilled Ribeye were cooked to perfection. The combinations of setups made the meal so enjoyable we hated to see it end. We look forward to the next time!
A wonderful find on Open Table! Excellent food, service and ambiance. Much thought, effort and expense went into turning this fine old downtown building into a restaurant. Huge kitchen (I peeked) tastefully decorated, vibrant bar, outside seating on the balcony. Very good wine list, a glass "wine cellar" upstairs that you have to see. Started with a Whiskey Sours, which took just a little bit longer due to a very busy bar, but was worth the wait. Beautifully made with the egg white whipped up perfectly. The crab cake was the best I have ever had and I have had them on all 3 U.S. coasts. An inch thick with just enough filler to hold it together. Shrimp and veggie angel hair was outstanding. Fresh local squash and zuke firm but tender with generous tomato chunks. Squeezed in a very nice Bourdeaux at a reasonable price. Altogether an outstanding experience. A destination restaurant.
Absolutely loved the whole experience! From the moment we were greeted, to the server answering all of our questions about the unique menu, the staff was amazing. The food was fresh, creative and flavorful. Can’t wait to be back and dine again! Found a gem in the heart of Sumter!
Hostess was incredibley kind but not trained properly. She told me there wasnt a scotch list, which i later found on the wine list. The table in front of us was filled with 7-8 10 year olds all yelling and screaming across the table and occassionally across the room to their parents. The food service was very slow, once we did receive it however, it was very good but the rack of lamb was not worth $42 based on the environment you receive this meal in. The lights were way too bright for a dinner crowd. This restaurant has potential but needs a more thoroughly trained staff, and more help in the kitchen.
Our dining experience was wonderful. We both had an excellent entrée for our anniversary. The Sea Bass was out of this world and my husband had the ribeye. It was amazing and cooked to perfection. Highly recommend! We will be back soon.
AMAZING food!!. Chef is an artist and very talented. Nothing over the top. Hostess somewhat prickly - clearly a reservation was a must even with lots of empty tables at 7:45. Made reservations while speaking with her and still waited an extra 25 min. A lesson I suppose... Chef made the experience worth it!
TOO MUCH SWEETS ADDED TO MOST ALL ORDERS.....EXTREME, NOISE , TOO LOUD , NOT A GOOD ENVIROMENT FOR AN EVENING MEAL, ....I DON,T MIND PAYING 3,4, 5OO.OO FOR A GOOD DESIRBLE MEAL WHERE ONE CAN HAVE A DECENT CONVERTION WITH YOUR PARTY....SO MY
FAMILY & 4 OTHER FAMILIES WE DINE WITH ON OCCASION......WILL NOT BE BACK.TO SUMTER
We had a fantastic evening at Hampton's. The new location is certainly on par with the Food now!! The new Bar Rafters certainly brings a Metropolitan feel to Sumter SC.
Always a nice evening & Raffaele, the Chef, continues to produce fabulous food!
Truly Sumter's finest! Delicious food and excellent service!
We found a gem in downtown Sumter! The food was excellent, as was the service! We will be back!
Four of us dined at Hampton Friday night and we had Striped Bass, Grilled Pork Chop, Rib Eye and Tenderloin. Presentation is amazing, food was absolutely perfect. We all loved what we ordered. Two of us had dessert, Mixed Berry Cobbler with Lemon Ice Cream and Creme Brulee topped with fresh fruit...perfect ending to a perfect meal. Wait staff was great!!!!!!! Highly recommend for any occasion or just to have a great dinner. I have also been there for lunch and it is great also!
Love this place. Food and ambience are excellent. Can't wait until the outside terrace opens.
A true five star restaurant the food was the food was very well presented and very tasty.
Delicious dining and beautiful decor!
As always the food was excellent. The new location is beautiful. Looking forward to a return visit. Hope to do brunch there very soon.
We came here for Father’s Day. We really enjoyed the new location, which opened in March. The food and service were excellent. We’ll be back.
Our family enjoyed dinner in the beautiful new location. The atmosphere in the dining room is very comfortable, fun and perfect for any occasion. Food was excellent, scallops, grouper and ribeye, as well as the service! We also enjoyed an after dinner drink at Rafters, the rooftop bar. An enjoyable evening, we look forward to coming back!
Hampton's is a beautiful, upscale restaurant in downtown Sumter. We spent our anniversary staying at the Hyatt and strolling downtown before dining at Hampton's. Definitely a tremendous addition to our community. Kudos to the Thompson's for all they have done for Sumter!
Nothing outstanding. Wait staff either poorly trained or incapable of learning proper nominal service. Comparable to Southern Bistro with better decor. Good prices. 3 star.
Great new location and the bar upstairs is beautiful. The food is consistently delicious. While the waitstaff is always very nice, the service we experienced during our last two visits hasn’t achieved the same level of quality as the food or the ambiance. Hopefully that turns around!
Everything was excellent as always. Quiet nice setting. Food outstanding. Service great. Nothing to complain about.
The new location is very nice and comfortable. The service was unusually poor. Server brought the wrong bottle of wine to the table, food delivery was slow and the bill was wrong. This is not the typical Service provided by Hampton’s.
Good and service great. A little more noise than optimal but not too bad. This was our first visit since they moved and will be back.
We visited the Hamptons for a family dinner after graduation at the University of South Carolina. The hostess was incredibly accommodating as I changed the reservation time several times as the ceremony dragged on. Once we arrived, we were seated immediately. We were given a great table in the center of the restaurant and menus were personalized, congratulating my son on his graduation. What a lovely and surprisingly thoughtful touch! The restaurant itself is gorgeous. The tables are spaced far apart, the lighting is flattering and the sound system was unobtrusive. The artwork is stunning.
Once we were seated, things went downhill. There seemed to be a problem with the servers. Someone stopped by several times promising bread soon but it took an hour to arrive. And when it did it was two baguette slices hand delivered to our bread plates. You might think they were doling out gold bars. Our orders were taken and another server stopped by 10 minutes later to take our orders. The restaurant was less than half full so I did not understand the source of confusion. We had been seated for an hour and a half by the time our dinners arrived. By this point, it had been a very long day and I was no longer hungry. I ordered the scallops appetizer as an entree, as did my mother. They were perfectly cooked and delicious. The graduate has the bass, which he loved, my husband had a shrimp and pasta dish and my other son had the chicken. Everyone enjoyed their meal but the service was uneven.
The Chef is an amazing talent. The GM led an attentive and pleasant staff. A 5 star experience!
