Beautiful interior, great service, small quantities of mediocre food, and overpriced food & drinks. If you’re ordering from the bar, go with a beer so you’re not disappointed.

I had been to Hampton Social before and enjoyed the food, drinks, and atmosphere. I decided to take my boyfriend there for a birthday celebration. Just as before, the food, drinks, and service was excellent. We’ll be back again, either by ourselves but hopefully with additional friends to also enjoy the experience.

I usually LOVE Hampton social, like go on a weekly basis kind of love. But this time for the food was extremely burnt and had an off taste. Definitely could’ve just been a one time thing though so I highly recommend still!!

Food & service was great. The issue we had was that the tables were so close together we were frequently getting bumped by the patrons at the table behind us.

We had a great time at Hampton Social. The service was fantastic. We had 8 people and our waiter was attentive throughout our entire time there. The food tasted great and the beverages were flowing. We would definitely go back again. The ambiance is fresh and modern too. I couldn't be happier with our experience. Thanks, Hampton Social.

We were seated properly when we arrived on time. We’re giving waters and menus quickly. Appetizers arrived quickly. The brussel sprouts appetizer was very good. The clam chowder on the other hand was OK at best. I had Ahi - tuna bowl which was good and the flourless chocolate cake was very tasty. Plan on spending between $100-$150 here for date night.

Snobbish cold hostess, wouldn't sit me where I asked. The waitress might want to clear off the tables waiting for the busboys to clear the table, while you look at dirty dishes is not a good practice. hmmm, get things that u ask for (spoons, sugar, your order). Adding an unordered extra side dish to the menu is also a bad thing. The food is good. I will not go back to this location. I have been to the other location and it is great, not here!!!!!!!!!

Hampton Social consistently provides the freshest well prepared seafood served by a friendly and professional staff. I always recommend HS and I am never disappointed. With lots of white and light, HS is very popular with the Instagram crowd.

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!

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.

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.

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.
