I love the ambiance here. The server did an excellent job. We were sitting Next to the open windows and at the end of the night, he snuck outside to creep up behind my friend who was the birthday girl to surprise her with a piece of chocolate cake. ( which had a candle sticking out of it). The cake was delicious.

We were promised delicious eggs benedicts and an easygoing girls brunch. Instead, we were met with hardboiled eggs on top of mediocre english muffins and a wait for our check almost as long as the time it took to eat our meal. The food was salty and one the restaurant got busier, our waitress never came to the table. The place sure is trendy but not worth it.

We enjoyed the guacamole and the drinks, and the service and atmosphere is great. But for a restaurant that specializes in fish, our fish entrees were poor. The fish was clearly not fresh, as we could tell by the taste and the gray color on the underside of the trout. We won’t be back.

My tequila was a $24 drink and was a very short pour.
Same drink at Le Colonial on Oak Street was $16.

The restaurant is in Skokie, not NY.
I told the manager and he really didn’t seem to be very interested. Bad customer service.

I really hated this place and will never go back. We were made to wait in the bar for 10 minutes before being seated, even though it was 5:45 and the restaurant was maybe 10% full. Much of the food is really, really spicy, even though it's not advertised as such on the menu. The whole Hampton shtick (our waitress said we will feeling like we're dining on someone's yacht - don't think so!) is lame. Maybe we just don't fit the demographic they're going for.

After 25 min we had to ask if someone could take our drink order. Lots of confusion as to who should wait on our table. Noticed another table get up and leave as no one was helping them. Ordered a cocktail with smoked salt and they ran out. So we sent the drinks back and asked for regular salt. Over all very slow.

I first visited the Hampton Social for a late lunch. The decor is beautiful. It has a beachy, summery feel with lots of greenery around and windows that open to the outside and a nice selection of rose wines. My ideal spot. The food selection is large with something to suit almost any taste.

I had a delightful, relaxed lunch with great service. However, I did think that some of the items were on the pricey side.

I went back for dinner recently and had a different experience. Unlike at my lunch, the restaurant was quite busy for dinner (6:45PM) and the experience was quite different in two ways. First was the noise level. At dinner it was very, very loud to the point that conversation at a 4 top table was almost impossible. The second issue was the service. The wait staff appeared to be sufficient in number but were frequently nowhere to be found. Getting our order for drinks was a 10 minute wait. The beverages were delivered by a runner and it was another 15 minutes before the server came back for the food order. The food order was delivered but missing a few items and it took a long time to get the server’s attention to correct this.

The delightful lunch experience was negated by my dinner travails.

Love the ambiance, food, and wait staff was good, but the noise level was not acceptable. The music was too loud and the acoustics are poor. From an Audiologist’s perspective they need to work on this for those with hearing loss!!

I think the Hampton social would be a great spot to stop for lunch while shopping at Old Orchard./ It has great decor and a delicious menu. I wouldn't come back for a Saturday night out -- being that is it located in a mall and extremely noisy and hard to have a conversation.

It’s a little loud and over run by a younger crowd of kids who have minimal manners. The food wasn’t anything special and quite bland-We ordered the following items:
Deviled eggs, calamari, shrimp tacos, and ceviche. Ceviche was okay. Calamari was over cooked and rubbery. The deviled eggs had no flavor and 3 pebble sized pieces of ahi tuna on each halved egg...lol.
Definitely not coming back, I couldn’t even hear the person across the table from me.

Disappointing. Overpriced food in what should have been a nice setting in a Sunday evening except for the horrible and not melodious singing guitar player in the bar, audible throughout the dining area, who sounded like a reject from Potbelly’s. Everything was tasty but priced about 20% too high for food in a shopping mall chain restaurant.

Got there earlier than our reservation. The first thing we noticed was the noise level... Very loud!! We loved the decor though. They seated is about 5 minutes after the reservation time. The water glasses were too small; however, the waiters were prompt with water refills. The menu was varied. The food was a bit pricey. The food was VERY good! I wouldn't rush to go back but it was good food!!

We could not wait to try this restaurant. It was so loud we could barely hear one another. Our 4 dinners were expensive and portions were so small. We can appreciate too much food and your taking food home, but our meals were almost appetizer size. The chairs are very uncomfortable and a large party next to us, the man’s chair broke and he fell on the floor right next to us. You can imagine how frightening this was. My girlfriend and I had vodka/ cranberry up in a martini class, the drinks were small and not rasy to drink out of. My husband doesn’t drink, he ordered a non alcohol beer, you didn’t have any?? We are sorry to write so many not good things but our special evening wasn’t so great, other than our friendship of 40yrs.
Thank you ...
