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!

Our waitress was great. Service was fast and the food was amazing. The food is a bit pricey, but worth it! The atmosphere at the restaurant is like being at the beach and very relaxing!

Fun place to eat and drink with friends. They were very accommodating to my 14 year old daughter and her 3 friends so they could eat off the kid's menu. It was pretty loud and hard to have a conversation across the booth.

Never again! This place is way overpriced and the service was awful. Took 30 min to get a drink at our table. Food was cold. They also only have two bathroom stalls and their was a line out the door. Worst place I’ve been to in Chicago?

Over all everything was good, prices are a bit high on drinks. Service was ok once we got some since there was only 1 waiter for one while side of the place. My friend has a salad with steak (steak was chewy) they took that off the bill sincecshe couldn’t eat it, but made up for it with a few dessert.

I believe the servers were very kind, just the food was a bit expensive. I would have wished to try a whole variety of foods but instead my party of 2 only ordered 3 things from the menu and our bill totaled about $95. I would love the opportunity to try more things, it was just a little pricy... that’s it.

Brunch was outstanding. I recommend the Eggs Benedict. Perfect poached egg - firm white, runny yoke! Tangy hollandaise sauce. Crispy buttery muffin. Hash brown potatoes were a creamy casserole of sorts. Couldn’t finish it all, and it was delicious. Frosé was fun and a light peachy taste.

Live music was a welcomed surprise & far enough away that we could enjoy while still catching up. Overall atmosphere was a little lack luster, food was alright but again we were underwhelmed with the whole experience. We mostly watched as people took pictures in front of the Rose Wall. My husbands meal came out incorrect the first time & took a minute before it came out correct again. This place would be better suited for a quick drink/app vs. a date night.

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.

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 server could not even pronounce the names of well known rosé. If you want to watch a bunch of 20 year olds taking selfies for hours then this place is for you.

The cuteness of the ambiance didn't do enough to compensate for the cold meal, undercooked cheeseburger, overall loudness, or overly touchy waitress.
