The noise level in the restaurant was unbelievable. The people and the live music made it incredibly difficult to hear and talk to the wait staff with our masks on. We had to scream to hear each other at our table.
This place was very energetic ! The food was amazing!!! The drinks are great!! The staff there is great as well!!
Nautical decor. Really cute. Masks and social distancing done. Felt safe. Unique cocktails for brunch. Good food. Clean.
Went for my sister birthday. We had a blast! Food, atmosphere, drinks and service was great!
The hostess was extremely rude and gave so much attitude coming in. Not helpful with any request. Upon finally speaking to manager we got a better table and the experience was great. A hostess should be inviting and she definitely wasn’t that. The waitress was great and the food was amazing. But that’s why I gave a low review because of the hostess.
It was such a wonderful experience with my best friend. First time there!! I celebrated my birthday at this location for the first time.
Very nice, Thank you!
Our waiter was exceptional!!
I attended two small birthday dinners on this night. On waiter in particular refused to wait on use. Kerry took over our table, for both events because the other waiter completely dismissed us!! The manger Seth, was made aware of this. He made sure that we received everything that we needed. What began as a horrible experience, turned out great at the end. Thank you Kerry and Seth for all of your efforts
TaneshaH, thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I want to apologize for the poor service you initially received when you sat down. We want and train every server to treat our cherished guests the way they would treat people who they've invited to dine with them in their homes. We're happy that the manager and your subsequent server course-corrected and we will be sure to address the missteps in service with our team to improve for the future.
We were expecting a little more choice's on your dinner menu.
ThomasD, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We know that our limited menu is not what our guests are accustomed to but the pandemic has caused issues in the supply chain which affects what we are able to offer. We are actively working to address these issues and we hope that, by the next time you stop in to dine with us, we will have resumed our full menu. Thank you for the recommendation and we hope to see you again.
Rude management. Asked for a window to be closed very politely & management was very Condescending & rude
I will never come back to this restaurant. Food and service were good but the live music was horrendous. It was so loud we were all screaming at each other across the table. I asked the manager to turn down the speakers and his response was “that’s how the CEO wants it”. Absolutely awful. If I wanted to listen to a live musician where I can’t hear anyone else, I would go to a concert or a club - not to a nice Sunday brunch. Don’t waste your time or money on this place.
Came for my girlfriend’s birthday. Great service, very nice and friendly waitress who was patient enough to take a few pictures of us. Food was great too!
Manager was rude when trying to seat us. Server kept forgetting to come to the table. We had a party of 5, so her gratuity was already included so she purposely slacked off. The place wasn’t even busy enough for her to keep forgetting drink AND food orders. We couldn’t even get straws! Food was good but good food is everywhere. Definitely won’t be returning.
Service was extremely sub-par today. Very disappointed in the staff/service at the restaurant today. We asked for things 3-4 times before we would receive them and also ordered drinks and never received them. May have been an off-day.
I was in Chicago for 4 days and visited the restaurant twice in a day! Love the food and live music!
JenniferC, this review is awesome! We hope you had a nice visit in the city and we really appreciate your patronage during your time here! Thank you for the recommendation and we hope you'll stop in again the next time that you're in Chicago.
Wait time was a little long
Chill spot with good food and an nice atmosphere.
The music was loud and it was hard to hear our server with mask on. Our order was wrong, and the server didn’t come over right away after the food was delivered.
Great food and good vibes!
We stayed at the bar and the lady bartender took care of us. She was really nice! The service was fast, the shrimp tacos were really tasty !! 🥂
LaviniaH, thanks so much for this awesome review! Sometimes it is nice to switch it up and dine at the bar, so we're very pleased to hear that the service from your bartender was on point and that you enjoyed your meal. We appreciate the recommendation and hope you'll stop in again.
great indoor space with big windows and fun decor.
Hana, thanks so much for this 5-star review! We're glad you had a good visit and that the ambiance and environment made such favorable impressions. We appreciate the recommendations and we hope to see you again.
The lobster roll wasn’t that great. There wasn’t any flavor and the chips were not seasoned
AyannaS, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm sorry to hear that your meal left you unimpressed. We appreciate the feedback and we will be sure to share it with our chef to improve for the future.
Hampton Social has amazing Manhattan style lobster rolls and it’s my favorite thing on the menu. Would highly recommend.
JayEvans, thanks so much for this great review! The Lobster Roll is one of our most popular items and the Manhattan preparation is my favorite too! We are glad you enjoyed your visit, we appreciate the recommendation and we hope to see you again.
I love this place good food good drinks plus nice employees
Thank so much for this great review! We pride ourselves on providing all the things you listed so we're happy to hear that is what you get when you stop in to dine with us. We hope you'll stop in again.
We felt as though we were abandoned by any service once we ordered. Had to call a manager over to get a second drink, which our glasses were set at the edge of the table for quite sometime to signal our desire for another. We were quite responsible to wear masks as any person came close to our table. Just disappointed, we want to tip large at this time, but require basic attention and service to do so. Food was delicious!
Brett, thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We strive for our service to be just as exceptional as our cuisine and cocktails and it sounds as though that failed to be the case during your visit and for that, I apologize. We understand that we have to do our part during these pandemic times to warrant our guests' money so we will discuss your review as a management team to improve for the future.
Great ambiance and vibe. Friendly staff and good brunch.
AllisaF, thanks so much for this nice review! We're glad you stopped in for brunch and had a good experience. We appreciate the recommendation and we look forward to seeing you in the future.
great live music!
Really enjoyed my time at the Hampton social. The ambiance is great! Especially for lunch! I had the pasta and it was amazing! Server was great too! My only issue was that I tried to ask another server, Ashley, a question because i couldn't find my server Lola and she was completely rude and just looked at me and walked away. She didn't even go grab my server for me. (They were not busy at this time). Other than that, I'd definitely eat here again- that server honestly just put a bad taste in my mouth.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience. We want every aspect of your service to be top-shelf, from your meal, to the ambiance, to your service and when one component is off, we appreciate knowing so that we can improve for the future. We will discuss this as a management team to make sure we continue to teach the steps of service and we look forward to seeing you again.
We waiting over 20 mins before someone check on us to take our order. The food was terrible and very few people were following regulations, we left after appetizers as our time was better spent at home
The food and staff were great. They did a good job with the covid-19 precautions, making us feel comfortable and safe while still having a great dining experience.
Just casual lunch with friends. Food was better at Skokie location.
HawkeyeRob, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm sorry to hear that your visit to our location did not measure up to that of the Skokie location. We strive to have our menu be consistently good, regardless of the location you visit so if that failed to be the case for you, I apologize. We hope you'll give us another opportunity in the future to make a better culinary impression.
The ambiance was great, it was pretty, wish we could’ve taken pictures inside but unfortunately we couldn’t. The food was okay, I would say the salads are a go to. As far as the drinks I recommend getting something from the bar you are used to drinking because their specialty drinks were horrible and I tried two different drinks.
Fans above each table blowing on high we’re uncomfortable during this period of Covid.
ScottW, thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate the feedback but please be assured that the Chicago Dept. of Public Health has inspected the space and, with our windows remain open, authorize the use of the fans. We're glad to know you enjoyed your meal and service.
The manager was a little stand-offish so our first impression wasn't the best but our server and the food made up for it. The food truly was amazing. Our server was way more pleasant than his boss and the prices are comparable to other trendy restaurants in the area.
Kate, thanks so much for nice review! We're glad to hear that your initial interaction did not spoil your visit and that your server's hospitality made up for any shortcomings. We appreciate the recommendation and we hope you'll come back again.
The food wasn’t that great and the drinks wasn’t valuable for the price 🤷🏽♀️
It’s was my birthday some of the drinks didn’t come out right but the new ones did
Thanks for the 4-star review and for choosing to celebrate your birthday at The Hampton Social! We're happy to hear that we corrected the cocktail missteps and we hope to see you again.
My friends and I had a great experience here! The food was great as well! However, I would suggest that the Brussel sprouts Caesar salad actually includes Brussel sprouts. One of my friends order the side salad and they’re weren’t any in there.
