asked for a quiet table on my reservation and was seated next to two loud parties, important that the people in charge take not when special requests are made.....

Went here for lunch and really enjoyed it. The food was very good (get the crab in a jar! So good) and the service was great. Also really nice decor. I recommend it.

We had a great experience! The food and drinks were excellent. We had both lobster rolls as well as the crab and avocado toast and they were so good! Our server was Caitlin and she was extremely attentive and friendly. Thank you for making our daughter’s 21st birthday brunch a fun day.

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.

Keilah, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm sorry to hear that the service did not measure up during your visit. We always want to demonstrate to our guests how much we value their patronage so if that was not conveyed on Thursday, I apologize. We appreciate the feedback and we hope to see you again.

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!

The food and atmosphere was not for me. The windows were all open on a hot, muggy, humid, rainy night. I was sweating while I was eating. And the food was good. Not great. Server was very nice and hard working. I think they need more training.

We had a great dinner at the Hampton Social. We tried a couple of the cocktails on the menu and both were good. We really liked the shrimp taco and trout entrees. Everything tasted great, but it was really loud, so diners should be aware in case it matters.

Reconnected with my college roommate after 50 years and had a great time. Restaurant ambience was perfect for the 2 couples to have a nice meal and catch up on what our lives turned out to be. Great service!

We enjoyed our meals but it was very warm in the restaurant. We asked to be moved to an area where there were overhead fans because we were uncomfortable. Do you have air conditioning??

Denise, I'm sorry to hear your meal was consumed in an uncomfortable environment. We are aware of the temperature challenges at our River North location and will be addressing them this fall. I promise that, by next summer, sweating at The Hampton Social River North will be a thing of the past. Thank you for the feedback.

First time at Hampton Social. Heard a lot of great things about the food. Apparently it’s an “open air concept”. That didn’t bode well for our group. It was too warm in the restaurant and we couldn’t enjoy ourselves. We had a drink and happy hour pizza and left.

I’ll go back in the winter. Hopefully it will be closed air and comfortable.

We had an incredible experience. We were placed in a private room, and we were overlooked. However, upon realizing this, everyone was extremely apologetic. We received free drinks and incredible treatment. They more than made up for the oversight.

Hampton Social is perfect for a brunch date or brunch with friends. The moderate noise level is more on the quiet side, so you're able to have a conversation. During the summer it is nice to have all of the windows open too! Highly recommend.

Checked in with hostess and was told my table wasn’t ready but I would be seated soon. Thirty minutes pass still not seated and two parties who arrived after me were seated, I asked when our table would be ready. The hostess asked for my name again and she said she forgot who I was, but my table was ready. I am not sure why she couldn’t have called my name or asked all the people who were waiting.

Despite that, the food was great and I loved the atmosphere.

Food was good, but service was okay. We asked to be seated by the windows but the hostess said they were all reserved even though there was clearly a table getting up to leave. We were stuck in the back and it got really hot since the air flow is minimal. Our server kept trying to push ordering the shell drink which was a turn off and our drinks tasted off. Instead of offering something different the server tried to explain why we were wrong in feeling the drinks were off. Not the best experience.
