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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
