The Hampton Social - River North
Book your next event with us
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!
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.
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!
(Fairly) Authentic lobster roll in the Midwest.
I don’t usually write reviews, but we went last night and it was like we were invisible. Server came to our table maybe twice after we flagged her down and the food took 40+ minutes without it being crazy busy. The service took so long that the busboy started waiting on us. Server didn’t even recognize or apologize, I just didn’t understand what was going on.
First time eating at a table. Was great as I hoped it would be.
Unfortunately, not overly impressed. Made reservations a month in advance and was very excited for dinner here. Our server wasn’t very friendly, didn’t make any suggestions, and never asked about my drink that I only took a few sips of and left (not very good). The water we were given was warm and there was no ice offered. I honestly don’t even know how long the wager had been sitting to get as warm as it was. We were seated directly next to another table full of people and literally had about 6 inches between us and them even though there were tons of open tables! Not as delightful as I had planned. Won’t be going back.
The staff was very friendly in accommodating last minute changes to the head count. This place is great for big groups looking to reserve a big table in advance. The food was great, the service was a little slow but understandable for a Saturday. The noise level was moderate, although we had to talk a little louder than normal conversation volume. Otherwise, I would recommend to a friend or to anyone looking for somewhere to have a bridal or bachelorette brunch.
Staff friendly and courteous. Design of restaurant very unique. Very, very noisy.
Food was mediocre. Service was fair.
loved the open air feeling of the restaurant. Food was great and the service was good too! We had 8 in our party for lunch and everyone loved what they ordered. It was a little pricey for lunch but we will definitely be back!
I have been to Hampton Social several times and I usually enjoy it because of the atmosphere and the food. I recommended this restaurant for a corporate team lunch and we had a large group of 11 people. Because we were on lunch we only had so much time before heading back to the office. I wanted to order something to drink after the waitress had already taken everyone's order and I tried to get her attention and she ignored me. She never came back to our table until our food was brought out. Everyone received their meal except for me and I ordered the same thing that several others at my table ordered. I asked the waitress about this several times and she kept saying they would bring it out. It took 15-20 minutes before it was brought out. About half of the table ordered entrees with French fries and all of the fries were cold, in addition to my colleague who ordered shrimp tacos that were brought out cold. We did receive a discount for the all the trouble, however the waitress basically ignored our table once we complained about this and we had to flag her down several times to ask about the status of our food. I understand that things happen in the kitchen but I thought it was in very bad taste for the waitress to ignore us several times. My company was looking forward to our lunch outing, and I can confidently say that this will not be a place we are going to return to.
A fun place in the warm weather especially as I love the way the open up the storefront to the outside.
Took my daughter and some friends here for her birthday. I had requested to sit by patio/outside (didn’t know they only have windows), however we were seated as far away as we could get which was a bit disappointing. Our waitress was great. I had been to Streeterville location prior to River North. I would go to Streeterville location again; don’t know that I would visit this location again. Just me. Streeterville is newer, cleaner, better outdoor vibe.
Really horrible service. All of our appetizers/entrees were served together as well. Would take 20+ minutes to get a drink. Weren’t given napkins and when we asked for silverware/napkins we were given about 100 cocktail napkins???
Nice and summer-y with the windows all open so it feels like sitting outside but with the ease of being inside. Though they weren't running the A/C so it was slightly warm. Nautical/beach-y vibe. The food was nice (avocado toast w/ burrata, brussels sprouts with goat cheese) and the frose is fun. Casual and cool. Good for girls or maybe a date. Not sure I could see a group of guys going there.
My steak salad was very salty. Fries were the best.
The food all looked amazing. I wanted to go back for lunch to try out more options. The decor and food are very photo worthy. The service is amazing and the staff there are used to people going around and taking pics so they will help. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Beautiful day for an exceptional meal! Light and breezy, young and friendly atmosphere! Food was outstanding! Service was prompt and professional! Definitely will return!
I took friends advice and ordered small plates, handhelds and pizzas to share and we were not disappointed! Nice atmosphere and great service. We will be back!
Everything was wonderful including the food, drinks, and service. We ordered the wings, lobster roll, and the cheeseburger with Parmesan fries instead of the chips. All divine! For drinks we had a frosé which was delicious and a seashell flamingo-jito. Both drinks you could taste the alcohol and were tasty.
The water in the men’s bathroom was not working so they put a bottle of sanitizer in there. I cringed at the thought of that. Also they bring you a warm bottle of water to the table but will bring you ice upon request.
I would definitely return despite the minor issues. I’m sure the first one will be resolved soon.
such a beautiful place and the food was delicious.
It was nice! Great environment and decent food. The drinks were the best!
We waited 15 minutes beyond our reservation time and then they seated us directly in the sun. I asked to be moved and we sat at a table at the end of the bar. It was noisy and not what I expected for a special occasion dinner.
BEAUTIFUL atmosphere, great food, great experience! I would definitely recommend!
Went for the 4 year anniversary special. Great food and great drinks.
