The Hampton Social - River North
Book your next event with us
Cool place. Neat vibe and the food is always fresh and tasty
Nice restaurant -- A bit above average. Nothing really special, but decent menu and nice atmosphere.
The staff and food were great.
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.
KatieD., thank you for the review. Sorry to hear that it took a misstep in service to act as the catalyst for our hospitality. Glad we made up for the initial oversight and we hope to see you again in the future.
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.
Great spot for seafood. Modern aesthetic and great food
Slow service in the beginning, got better once server noticed us. Hostess not good. Many gnats coming in through windows or elsewhere once food arrived.
The Hampton Social has amazing drinks and brunch items on their menu. I loved the laid back vibe of this restaurant. I would definitely go back.
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.
Best seafood in the city. Great oysters and rosé
Food was amazing!! Drink were good but a little watered down
5 star EVERYTHING!!!
Thanks for the awesome review. We hope you come back to dine with us again soon.
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.
We made reservations for 6 for dinner. We all had a wonderful experience...from the ambiance, food, hosts and staff. It's perfect for dinner or brunch. It has an energetic feel and when you walk in you feel whisked away to a beachtown or somewhere warm. Will definitely be back and will try brunch.
The food and service was outstanding. It being my first time I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Also, the flexibility of your staff to have moved our original table to a table next to a window was greatly appreciated. Will definitely be going back! Thank you so much !!!
A great spot for drinks and dining! It can get a little loud for intimate conversation, especially on a Friday night, but really enjoyed the atmosphere. Calamari is a must in my opinion, the swordfish was perfectly prepared and a chocolate martini to end the evening was just the thing!
Came here for lunch. I didn't think the food was anything special, I was expecting more. but what they lack in dining they make up for in decor and ambiance.
We picked Hampton Social because it fit the occasion of a bridal shower and the menu is suitable for groups. We left disappointed by the lack of service, particularly to a big group paying a hefty bill. We had to continuously ask for the staff to take the piles of plates and empty glasses away. The waitress was often missing and the busing staff was wandering around the restaurant avoiding us. I would return with a much smaller group but would not recommend for large groups unless service improves.
The service, cocktails and food were all fantastic. We rally feel like we got our money’s worth. It was a nice evening with the windows open, and everyone truly enjoyed themselves. We will be back
Great service and live music.
Whenever we're in town this is the go to lunch spot. Great location, very accommodating for gluten allergies, excellent food at a great value, interesting interior. We will be back, thank you!
Eric, Thanks for the awesome review and for your continued patronage. We look forward to seeing you the next time you're in town.
The food was great but our server was terrible. She took about 15 minutes to even come to the table, and it was slow. Then it took another 15 to get our drinks. We ordered soup appetizers and while it was really good it also took forever BUT THEN our main meals came out less than 2 minutes after. So they got cold. We also ordered shots and she brought back terrible cocktails. Never offered a dessert menu and I had to get someone else to close the window behind me since i asked her 3 times and it never happened. Bad service really ruined our date night. I was really looking forward to it too.
We arrived and had to wait in line at the reservation desk. After 10 minutes we checked in with the hostess and she showed us to a high top table next to the waiting area. We asked for a table outside because the restaurant is not air conditioned and
They took us upstairs to an inside table looking at the outside tables so we left and went to another restaurant. If you’re looking for an indoor picnic this is the place for you.
Cute decor, lively but not too loud (was an early dinner though, 530pm). Service was excellent. The food was, eh. Would not go back to eat, mayyyyybe just drinks.
Hostess read and followed thru with request on seating us at a nice table for a birthday celebration. Food was tasty. Very cool place to go. It was a warm and humid day, therefore it was warm and muggy inside as to be expected when the large windows are open. So it was kind of uncomfortable. We will return.
The service was amazing. Myself and my friend was able to relax and not feel rushed to enjoy our monthly bestie date.
Too hot - fans should have been on
Server didn’t know the menu
Need to get real ice cubes for an old fashioned if you charge 12 dollars by block ice !
Great atmosphere with a good menu to choose from. Food quality is good.
Great location, fun environment!!! Food is good but some came out cold. Server quickly took care of that but something to watch for.
It was way too loud at first but as the crowds tapered off, it improved. But the food and wine list were good. Great service with nice recommendations from the menu.
Great place for happy hour. Very loud, but cool cocktails and nice vibe
The lobster roll was delicious! I love the open air feel to this place. Will be back!!
Excellent server, amazing food, attentive staff, beautiful place!
Poor and slow service!
Was a little loud but other than that no complaints. Food was very good and nice service. Would eat here again for sure!
(Fairly) Authentic lobster roll in the Midwest.
