Came here for brunch on a girls shopping trip to Chicago. Restaurant was very cute, nautical theme, and had live acoustic music. Lobster roll was amazing! Our eggs Benedict was over cooked and the orange juice was not good- tasted funny. A little on the pricey side, especially when we were ordering bottles of champagne, but overall we had a great time and the food was pretty good!

Some of the food was good and some was just ok. The salmon was under cooked. The temperature in the restaurant was very warm.

Celebrated my birthday here. We had drinks, appetizers, dinner, and dessert. They allowed us to bring in balloons to make the dinner more special. The drinks were delicious and the food was yummy.

This experience was not what I expected. The server was friendly but completely lacking in knowledge regarding menu items. The trout is breaded and bland. The flourless chocolate cake is too small. The lights were turned down way too much after 7pm (you couldn’t appreciate the beach decor). The music was too loud and inappropriate for dinner setting (more like a gym/club). I would not recommend this restaurant for dinner, perhaps just lunch.

Great place. We were celebrating a birthday and then going to the theater. We wanted to find something different then your usual theater dining experience. We found a gem with Hampton Social. The service was excellent...thank you Raul, and the food was great!

My boyfriend and I have been to the Hampton Social in Streeterville, which we loved, so we figured the W. Hubbard location would be the same experience. Unfortunately, it was very loud, we were seated 20 minutes after our reservation, and our server only came by our table sparingly. Great food and aesthetics but wish it was more similar to the location in Streeterville.

Everything was great other than having to wait almost 30 minutes from our reservation time to get seated but we did have a larger party which I know is hard to accommodate so I still gave 4 stars

The service was awful. The server never checked on us once and got my order wrong. Someone also called to confirm my Monday lunch reservation on Sunday morning at 9am! Ridiculous. When I asked to speak to a manager about the low quality of service, the manager never appeared. I will not be returning.

We had a great time for Sunday brunch. They had live music and it was great. We sat at the bar instead of a table and had a very nice time there. Would definitely come by again and recommend to friends. They should consider a bottomless mimosa option for the weekends.

So I made this reservation for my birthday dinner. We had a great time, but I have two things that I didn’t love. First, our waitress was very rude and would avoid coming to our table. Dinner started at 7:30 pm and we couldn’t get a hold of her for our checks until 10 pm. Also, a house DJ set started near us without warning. This is fine, however it was so loud many of us couldn’t hear each other speak.

The food is amazing. I'm not an avocado toast fanatic, but I'd like to be buried face down in theirs when I die. It is so good. The deviled eggs were awesome (apparently deviled eggs are making a comeback) and the crab in a jar? Wow.

We normally just split a whole bunch of apps when we go, so I couldn't comment on their entrees. However, I'd suggest skipping dessert. It seemed subpar when compared to the rest of the meal.

Thanks so much for the review. You picked some great appetizers and we're glad that they all hit the spot. We appreciate the feedback on dessert (even though our Berries Crisp is a fan-favorite). We hope you'll come back again soon.

The first round of drinks were rather bold and not quite to most of our likings. We rotated a few and made it work though. New round was much better. Food was all delicious. We always come for the lobster roll! So good! Server was friendly and attentive!
