The Hampton Social - River North
Very disappointed with the food, which had been rated highly in the reviews. The lobster roll was so poor we didn’t eat it.The salads were mediocre. The one bright spot was the Keylime pie which was excellent.
The ambiance and decor was wonderful (a little noisy because an event and music playing though). The service was pretty good but had to wait quite a while for the waitress to reappear now and then. I feel this was because it was so busy and there was not enough staff for the tables. The food (dinner) was good for the most part, but definitely not worth the price.
Loved the atmosphere, food was amazing and drinks were great!
I have always wanted to go to The Hampton Social because of the infamous Rosé wall. This wall however is located in a corner cut off from the rest of the restaurant, so it's unlikely you'll be seated in front of it. The brunch was really good. We had to wait a few times for our waitress but our overall experience was good. They had really great live music, but it was too loud. I could barely hear the person sitting next to me. The interior is very nautical and not what I expected but still very nice.
We loved Hampton Social’s atmosphere and style! Specially our host/waitress Jenny (?) was supernice. Music was too loud, maybe beacause of St Patrick’s day?
Me and my children loved king crab, ceviche and cheese cake!
This restaurant is not good for a friends’ get-together if they would like to have a conversation and catch up. The music is way too loud. We sat in a side section away from the main room with booming music and still had to shout at each other. The food was fine but was not outstanding. We all had the lobster roll—The butter version rather than the traditional one with mayo. It was good, but I may have liked the one with mayo better, which would add a tangy pop to the sandwich. The wine selection was adequate. The restaurant was quite crowded on the Saturday night that we visited and seemed quite popular with 20-35 year olds.
Waitress wasn’t attentive. Had to request the same thing several times.
The cuteness of the ambiance didn't do enough to compensate for the cold meal, undercooked cheeseburger, overall loudness, or overly touchy waitress.
The bus person reached to grab my plate but I wasn’t finished eating. He put his hands in my pancakes, I couldnt finish my food. My waitress didn’t seem like she wanted to be bothered. Food and drinks were great but service could have been much better.
Service was great from the hostess, to the bartender finally our server! Food and drinks were always coming out quickly. Food was fresh, perfect portions and great price point- felt like we found a gem.
thank you Hampton Social for kicking our night off right! We had a great time!
Awesome ambience! We went back twice for the lobster roll!!
Absolutely loved it. The atmosphere was great with live music and sea-side decor. The drink we got was served in a giant seashell bowl. It was huge and very refreshing! The food was great.
Loved the place! It was very unique and cute! Great brunch area and would definitely go back!!
Best food ever. If you go for brunch get hashbrowns on the side.
Amazing service. Very attentive staff!
The Hampton Social delights with great food in a smart casual albeit happening atmosphere. We were a group of girls and everyone had a great time and food. The service men looked a bit grumpy but that did not spoil our mood. The location is great and if you are looking for an all rounder for that friends get together or pre-going-out-dinner: this is a great choice.
Great service, food & atmosphere and prices for Chicago!
Had a great experience here. Will definitely be back. The service was great. Highly recommend the King Crab jar! So delicious! The Chowder soup was the best I’ve ever had. I also really enjoyed the Coastal Salad without the capers and cilantro. Ordered a Frose’ and that was good also.
Brunch food was very good. There were 6 of us and we had a nice booth. Several of us had the avocado toast and it was the best I ever had- served with egg and crab meat. Delicious. (Also came with a layer of olives which frankly does not sound good and too salty so we deleted. ) The parmesan fries were killer good. Tasty breakfast burrito. Frose drink was delicious. The best part was our waitress- delightful. Friendly and professional.
The food was excellent but tracking down our server was extremely difficult. There would he periods of 45 munuteswhere
Amazing. Hands down my new favorite spot.
Service was slow. It was a late lunch and without the energy of a crowd, we felt like we had to seek out our server too frequently
I love the space here. I came for brunch. The drinks are good and they have a good variety of options for brunch! It always popping so I recommend a reservation!
Going to return- soon!
We went for brunch to celebrate birthdays. The place is adorable!! The tables are a little too close together and the service was poor. The busser did more for our table than the server.
I love the fun atmosphere, live music and food. The there is something for everyone on the menu.
The music was a great selection, but just a tad loud so its hard to have a conversation over dinner without yelling.
Possibly the best food I’ve had in my life!
It was way too hot we were all uncomfortable, food and service were amazing we just didn’t want to stay long because of how hot we were
The food was delicious and the staff was kind. We had a snowy brunch while we were Inc chicago & it was a great time! I ordered the breakfast burrito (they modified it to vegetarian)! It was a total delight x
Such a great space, decor, and the food was phenomenal. And the service was top notch. Definitely coming back again when visiting Chicago. Great first time visit to Chicago. Thanks Raul for the amazing drink suggestions!
Definitely a place for the "ambiance" and not so much the food. If you're looking to take pretty pictures of your cocktails/dishes, you'll be all set. But, food was totally average. Waiters were good, though, and it was pretty crowded, so also a good atmosphere for the most part.
Nothing special about the food, but the drinks were awesome! It’s more about the ambiance and the location, right in the middle of Rivernorth action. Great place for a date or girls night.
I have always wanted to go here just based on ambience alone. I ordered an ahi tuna steak burger and that alone would keep me coming back! The service was excellent.
me and my Valentine had a nice dinner here. We sat in the back room that is tucked away on the side of the restaurant so it was easy to have a conversation, although I would not have minded sitting near the live music (what a nice surprise). Affordable, friendly staff and tasty meals. We will definitely go again.
We were treated like royalty for Galentines Day! Thanks again for the bottle of whispering angel Mike!
I love the atmosphere of this place! The food was good and our server was excellent
Always a fun spot in the city. Deviled eggs with ahi tuna are so good. You can’t go wrong with Frose or a Bloody Mary. Loved the breakfast burrito and the Eggs Benedict!
The hostess was very rude and waiter was not very attentive
The food was great and the manager/waitress were very accommodating!
