4% Health & Safety Tax?! Unacceptable. I did my part in coming and patronizing their restaurant. I shouldn't be then expected to pay a premium. Spoke to the server, and the two hosts my displeasure, none of them offered to take it off. Deal breaker, won't go back.

SIDE NOTE: first review ever for any restaurant!

I treated my sister and her boyfriend out to dinner because my sister just turned 21. I chose this place because the menu had a lot of different options to choose from between seafood and chicken since she really only eats seafood/chicken. We ordered three different large plates and and two different sides. I ordered the "Pasta Rossa," my sister ordered the "Shelter Island Chicken Sandwich," and her boyfriend ordered the "Shrimp Tacos" and fries. We also ordered a side of "Roasted Brussel Sprouts."

The "Pasta Rossa" was very good and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. I got to try my sister's chicken sandwich, and I would say that this should be HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I was honestly debating whether to order one to take home. As for the Brussel sprouts, I personally don't prefer it. It was not bad at all, but it was a little too sweet for my personal taste. My sister's boyfriend said he did like them though, so it's just personal preference.

Besides the food, we also ordered 3 cocktails which were the "I Gliterally Can't", "Big Boats and I Cannot Lie," and "Oh, Ship." I had the "I Gliterally Can't" and I was expecting it to be a bit more fruity. I would drink it again if it was given to me, but I personally wouldn't order it again. I guess it's just based on preference, so I have nothing against it. Side note: We all did try a bit of each cocktail and we all agreed that the "Big Boats and I Cannot Lie" was the best tasting cocktail.

Overall, we loved the overall experience, ESPECIALLY THE FOOD (specifically the chicken sandwich and pasta rossa). I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is interested. It is on the more expensive side, but it's worth it if the food is amazing. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!

The weekend brunch is worth checking out. A singer/guitarist provided background music to fantastic craft cocktails and excellent seafood.
My server was incredibly attentive and all staff members followed all COVID protocols.
I will definitely return.

Hampton Social is a great place to have a fancy dinner and take lots of pictures. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very relaxing and reminds me of an beach side view mixed with glam.

Unfortunately, the Lemon Chicken was sold out once again. This was my first time at the Skokie location, but I've also tried to order the chicken at the downtown location.

Make sure to be camera ready, and order the Smash Burger or Shrimp Tacos!
With a side of Froze.

Not the friendliest management when we requested a heat lamp. Food was great but the music was too loud inside. In the Covid days extra restaurant noise should be kept to a minimum to keep people from having to scream at each other and potentially spreading germs further

Everything was amazing and I'm absolutely in love with this place. With most people wanting to sit outside, it would've been helpful if all of the heat lamps were working appropriately, as ours wouldn't stay on and it was getting a little chilly outside. Otherwise everything was PERFECTTTT

Temp taken at your wrist upon arrival.
Tables and booths spaced appropriately.
Food was great.
We have the roasted brussels sprouts as our appetizer. My friend had steak Frites which was done perfectly. I asked for my salmon to be cooked medium well and it was. Drinks were excellent.
Extremely pleasant and efficient server, Chloe.

We loved our experience here! I took my boyfriend here since I used to love the city location and we recently moved to the burbs. He had never been to Hampton Social in Chicago, but was wowed by the ambiance of this place. The food was excellent - I had the lobster roll (Maine style) which was delicious with fresh parsley in a sinfully good buttered brioche and he had the burger with the parmesan fries which were also excellent. Our waitress was attentive and swift. My favorite part was the small detail of the compostable straw complete with a "bee" decal on it to serve my drink "Bees are Back" - so good! It was a bit pricey but we would still return for a special occasion.
