My business associates could not believe that they had one of their best meals ever in Sumter. The restaurant and the upstairs bar were both beautiful. I also enjoyed the extensive wine list.

We love to dine here for we never have a disappointment. The food is always fresh and flavorful. The service is always above and beyond. Aimee was spot on on her menu suggestions as to what would make our dinner even more special. We can't say enough about how exquisite the restaurant is. If you have not been to Hamptons to dine, what are you waiting for? Definitely a spot to check out and you will not be disappointed!

Horrible Noisy, cold and poor service. Have loved it for years so this was unexpected. Maybe chef was out as my meal was not at all like it had been before, would have sent it back but don’t think it was fixable

Been to old Hamptons 10 - 15 times... 1st on Main St... Looked great. Wish we had gotten their earlier to check out the bar upstairs... Reservation were at 7:15... Left at 9:05... Food was great, but I thought service was terrible.. Drinks were slow to the table, and I thought main course took too long.. Music was too loud.. I like The Rolling Stones, but not in the restaurant, upstairs would have been fine.. Too loud.. Too many speakers I guess.. Had to get person at front to take my credit card.. I will come back , but hopefully noise is down and service is better.. Too fine of a restaurant for that type and loudness of music.. Thanks

Crab cake appetizer was incredible. We wish we had ordered the meal portion. For the meal the short ribs were also very good. The halibut was a bit dry and not as flavorful. All in all worth the 45 minute drive.

We had a very pleasant meal. The only critique I have is the music choice and lighting. For it being such a nice restaurant the ambiance is tainted by the top 40 radio playing and the bright lights.

The food is outstanding, not what you’d expect in a small town!! If the pan roasted lobster with corn ravioli is on the menu, GET IT, it’s amazing. Desserts were simply decadent. The service was slow, but I think they had a sparse crew that night due to an event across the street at their sister restaurant Sidebar. We plan to try Sidebar for lunch on our way thru Sumter next time. Don’t miss this place it’s just 15 minutes off Route 95.

It took an hour to get our food and we had 3 different servers come to our table. The first server took our drink order and then never came back to get our food order. It took 15 minutes to get a drink refill each time. Finally, Christian came to our table and took our food order and took care of us. She was excellent. The food was excellent but the overall service was not very good considering we waited so long for drink refills and food. We had 3 different servers ask about drink refills but never the same person come back to the table. We almost left before our dinner was ever served.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!
