I went to the Hampton for celebrating birthday with my friend and we really enjoyed!! Foods were so yummy, I requested to change a table to have more nice view and they gladly moved our table. Also they served Chocolate Cake with Ice cream after our meal. It made me feel more happy! ! Thank YOU for everything!

Beautiful weather so the windows were open and the sun was shining. Loved the live music. Waitresses were super friendly and the appetizers were delicious. My fav was the Brussels sprouts and French fries. I love their rosé and the whole ambiance is awesome.

We made a reservation for 8:30PM for 3 on a Saturday evening. We arrived a couple of minutes early, around 8:25PM, and the hostess said it would be a couple of minutes. At 8:36PM, I approached the hostess to ask how much longer we would have to wait for our table, and her response was a flippant "I don't know." I asked if she had an estimate and she continued to say "I don't know. As you can see, it is rather busy tonight." I was taken aback at her flippant manner. I realize Saturdays are busy, but that is why I planned ahead and made a reservation. We got seated around 8:45PM. I am fine waiting a little bit, but it was the manner that the hostess blew me off that had me taken aback. Once we were seated, service was quite slow - for example, we had to wait ~5 mins for our waitress to even come say hi. we were able to get drinks and our meals within 2 hours.

Very trendy spot. Live music was great. Food was ok, and took a long time to be served. Dessert came out after 15 minutes and the ice cream was already melted. The server spilled it on our table and wiped it up, but didnt think to get us ice cream that wasnt melted.

We had brunch on Saturday. Beautiful day sat at a window with the shutters open. Bloody Mary’s & morning mimosas to start. Tuna avocado bowl, tuna avocado sandwich and Wildberry French toast. All were outstanding. Hands down the best bacon we have ever had. Service was excellent. Definitely a great way to start out our day in downtown Chicago.

My wife and I visited on a Friday night. I had a reservation and showed up early, but we had to wait until about 30 minutes after our reservation to be seated. The bar was nice to help us pass the time. The food was mediocre for the area. This restaurant seems like more of a happy hour spot than a good place to dine. Noise level was pretty high for dining as well.

Went to Hampton Social recently to celebrate my birthday. Reserved a table for 8 but only 7 could attend. They were very accommodating and didn't mind the change. Our table was in a private room that made the evening more intimate. Our server was attentive but didn't rush us. She even brought out a complimentary slice of cake and scoop of ice cream after overhearing it was my birthday! I greatly enjoyed my visit and I'm glad I chose Hampton Social for the occasion.

Went here for a graduation celebration. Place is very lively and a lot of fun. The graduates got a giant clamshell drink with multiple straws. The Frose was delicious too! The food selections have a CapeCod flare and the lobster roll was delicious. The only drawback was the noise level which was very high. But I guess that is to be expected in a place that people go after work to be seen. It quieted down later after happy hour was over. All in a a very fun upbeat place.

Almost all of the wines on the menu were not available. Though we were able to find one we thought was "okay", it was disappointing. The food was great, our server was wonderful, but this kept me from giving HS a 5 star rating.

We introduced a new drink menu on April 30th, which may explain why several of your choices were unavailable as we had to prepare for our new summer offerings. We hope you'll stop in again to try our fully stocked wine cabinet!

I started my birthday with a 1st time visit! I loved everything I experienced. I was greeted and seated immediately. I tried their “Rose of the Day” and a glass of Prosecco. The claw chowder is a MUST! The taste & consistency is perfect, plenty of clams! I also had the Coastal Salad. Fabulous. My friend has the Yellowtail Ceviche with Passionfruit. It was tasty as well! This was a great pick on a nice Spring day. I will return to try the Sunday Brunch!

Beautiful restaurant with friendly staff and tasty dishes. But the service is really slow (lunch took nearly 2 hours) and the prices are a little too high for what you get. A nice spot for dinner with friends as long as you realize that it'll be about 30% more expensive than you think it will be.

We had a very pleasant experience today (Easter) for my two friends and I. (I’m from out of town). At first I wasn’t impressed with the lack of energy from our waitress, then she got much better and enjoyable. I ordered the grilled cheese with tomato bisque minus pesto and a huge bowl of tomato bisque minus pesto came out before my meal, which was confusing but I just figured that was how it’s done there, no biggie. When I got my sandwich, another bowl of soup was with it. I never got a chance to mention this to her until we got our bill, which we weren’t ready for but she basically didn’t give us a choice. So on our bill there was the added bowl of soup, which when I asked her why I had two bowls, she told me it was because that what was I asked for. Which I clearly didn’t, and I didn’t enjoy her telling me that the issue was MY mistake and not hers. I have no idea why she would think I needed 2 bowls of soup, one with pesto and one without. She did take it off of the bill, but it was after the small argument/misunderstanding. All in all we had a good experience, loved the atmosphere and a great guy was singing for awhile. Because I was from out of town, we had intended on staying for awhile but was pushed to get our bill before we were ready. I understand we were taking up a table, but I work in hospitality and was going to tip accordingly for taking up her table for longer than usual. Everyone has bad days, but that was a little unacceptable.

Definitely make a reservation here. I’ve been wanting to try this place for a while and I’m so happy I did! The whole place is adorable with decorations - you will still get a nice photo op even if you don’t sit by the coveted all day rosé sign. I had a frosé, which was good but not worth $13. I would get a different drink next time. I didn’t think the food would be anything special but it was phenomenal. My mom hasn’t stopped talking about the fried chicken sandwich, and my avocado grilled cheese was great! It is pretty pricey, but definitely worth a visit!
