Our server was rude, cold and pushy. I fully understand it’s hard times, and can be more tense now due to COVID. However, I don’t think that’s an excuse to roll your eyes at a customer, walk away when they are handing you a card to run, and not get an order correct/offer an opportunity to fix it. The food was amazing, ambiance was wonderful, but our server was awful and projected her terrible mood/energy onto us. A server can make or break an experience, I won’t be returning for in dining.

The food was really good. Didn’t like the forced gratuity. We had two reservations but because we asked to be close together, each table was hit with the 18% gratuity and then we were asked to leave after a certain amount of time expired.

Responded on October 26, 2020

Tracyj, thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We do advertise the gratuity for parties of 6 and greater as well as the time limits we must place on tables due to our diminished occupancy requirements. We're glad you enjoyed your meal but we're sorry that those stipulations rubbed you wrong.

Covid breeding ground. People were packed in here a foot apart. I get it was a Saturday and the brunch crowd was still out, but 3pm was ridiculously loud. I had to shout to my wife to hear anything. The food was great though.

Food and drinks were delicious for a fair price. This is my second visit. The waitress was not very attentive to our table and seemed to be rushing us to order, barely came back to check on us. If not fir this, rating would have been all stars.

While the seating and drinks were pretty good, the food was not good at all. I had the shrimp tacos which had absolutely no flavor and only one or two pieces of little shrimp in it. The taco shells themselves were chewy and felt like they had been sitting around for days. Would not go back.

I had a great experience at the Streeterville location, so I tried the River North location. I had the same fantastic experience. The food was amazing. I ordered the kale salad (again) with fried chicken cut up over it. I also tried the creamy, yummy mac and cheese. I’m actually hooked on Hampton Social and plan to be back very soon.

The hostess was extremely rude and gave so much attitude coming in. Not helpful with any request. Upon finally speaking to manager we got a better table and the experience was great. A hostess should be inviting and she definitely wasn’t that. The waitress was great and the food was amazing. But that’s why I gave a low review because of the hostess.

I attended two small birthday dinners on this night. On waiter in particular refused to wait on use. Kerry took over our table, for both events because the other waiter completely dismissed us!! The manger Seth, was made aware of this. He made sure that we received everything that we needed. What began as a horrible experience, turned out great at the end. Thank you Kerry and Seth for all of your efforts
