The Hampton Social - Skokie
We ordered house rose server did not tell us how much the wine cost. It was soooo over priced
We were there for a birthday dinner and the food was amazing!! We also got a delicious birthday dessert too! Our waitress was wonderful and very helpful and attentive.
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.
Annaroszak, I thank you for the honest feedback. It is greatly appreciated. As a new restaurant, we are working diligently to provide consistently good food to our guests. If that didn't happen during your last visit, I apologize. We will be sure pass this critique, along with the one regarding your wait time, on to our chef and management team to address them.
The food and atmosphere we're good. The service was really bad. The noise level was way to loud. It was expensive for what is was.
very good food and service but I was really surprised by the amount it costs.
RichardB., thank you for the review. We appreciate the feedback on your meal's value, as we want our guests to feel as though their money is well-spent. We will definitely take it into consideration.
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.
Shelley, we appreciate the review and the feedback. I'm sorry that your meal disappointed and failed to meet expectations. We pride ourselves on our seafood, in particular, and any failure to meet our high standards will be addressed with the chef. We hope you'll give us another chance in the future to make a better impression.
Food quality was poor. Ordered toast with egg breakfast and was almost finished before they arrived. Very noisy. Poor value
The decor is gorgeous! The food is really good and unique. Can’t wait to go back to try items off the dinner menu.
Jennifer, thank you for the awesome review! We look forward to seeing you soon, hopefully up on the roof top!
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.
Birthday. Service was terrible. Waiter was inattentive to say the least. Food was fair at best. Rose was good and loved the ambience and vibe of restaurant. I would try again but service must be significantly improved.
Did not like the menu, the food was overpriced for the portions you received.
The avocado toast and the fish and chips were quite good, as was the service of Johnny B. However, it was extremely noisy at times, and things are a bit overpriced.
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.
The food was exceptional. A bit noisy! Will definitely go again.
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.
Bandol, I'm sorry to hear that both of your visits were not equally satisfactory and enjoyable. As a new restaurant, we are actively working to iron out any wrinkles in service that prevent our guests from enjoying their visit and to improve our consistency. We hope that you'll give us another opportunity in the future to make the impression we made during your first visit.
Went for Happy Hour - like that the pizza was half off but honestly it was nothing outstanding
Food was mediocre at best and extremely overpriced. Had to send back an entree because it didn’t have the main thing it stated on the menu and got the same item back with the cold undercooked Brussels thrown in. Slow and inattentive service.
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!!
MarianneT, thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback on the acoustical challenges encountered during your visit. We are aware of them and are working to address them.
Food was good. Atmosphere is fun. Service was really bad. Waiter took forever to bring drinks, food, etc. brunch took more than two hours. Would need to be convinced to go back.
Waiter took over 1/2 hour to get drinks, 3 wines, 1 beer and 2 vodkas. Poor service. Loved the look of the restaurant and would have liked to be able to enjoy the vibe but couldn’t.
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.
AngieD, thank you for your review. Glad you enjoy the menu. We look forward to having you dine with us during whatever time of day is most appealing to you.
Excell we not food, nice ambience, high noise levels
Great new spot in Old Orchard. Live music, nice menu. Good seafood options as well as gluten free.
ColleenR, thank you for the nice review. Glad you enjoyed your meal and the ambiance. We hope to see you again in the future.
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.
Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback. As a new restaurant, we are actively working to learn our clientele and provide them both a dynamic menu coupled with an engaging environment. We hope you'll give us another opportunity in the future to make a better impression.
Nice bright open restaurant with a great menu that has a lot of variety and tastes great. Can't wait for the rooftop and outdoor patio to open this summer.
JimM., thank you for the great review. Glad you enjoyed your visit. We're really excited for the rooftop as well. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
Great place for a teen birthday dinner! Lovely decor and delicious food at a reasonable price point.
TraceyM., thank you for choosing to celebrate your teen's special day with us and for the review. Glad you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to seeing you in the future.
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.
Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We appreciate your feedback as we always want our guests to feel their money and time have been well spent. We will definitely take it under advisement.
Very slow service. Waitress was nice though.
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!!
Thank you for the feedback, we appreciate it. Glad you enjoyed your meal. Hope you come and see us again in the future.
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 ...
A bit overpriced. Liquor selection very limited and very pricey. Very noisy. But food was excellent, so I would recommend it to a friend, with an advance warning.
Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We appreciate your feedback on the aspects of your visit that disappointed. Glad you enjoyed your meal. We hope to see you again in the future.
Great food and service, best place to take cute pictures!
The service at this restaurant was completely awful. It took 2 hours for us to have brunch. And it wasn’t even busy.
Our server just pranced around doing everything but serving us.
Great food and the shell drink lemonade was delicious
Fish & chips were not up to par - have had better at other places. Batter/coating was to gummy & gooey - need to find a different batter mix. Also need to make sure all bourbons are well stocked as advertised.
JamesG, I'm sorry to hear that your visit disappointed. We are striving to provide our guests exceptional food and drink and if that didn't happen during your most recent visit, I apologize. We hope that you'll give us another opportunity in the future to impress.
Nice menu. Good drinks.
