The Hampton Social - South Barrington
We were there to celebrate my birthday and it is the third time that we have visited this month. Everything we have ordered was always delicious! I would highly recommend the brussels sprout appetizer and the avocado toast!
Way too loud! Food was excellent but do not go if you want to talk!
Great food & service in a fun and relaxed atmosphere! Rose all day forever!
Drinks are overpriced, food was ok , service at the bar was great. Our waitress was very nice but did not bring back the right amount of change from bill . I was shorted 5.00
We went on a Friday night. Had asked for a quiet area and was told there were no quiet areas. Wanted to like the food. I had shrimp tacos. The shrimp was rubbery- obviously overcooked and the taco shells were dried out and leathery. A disappointment for $17.50. My husband ordered trout. He said the fish had no flavor. Don’t think we will be coming back.
It was a great venue to try but overall the food and drinks were expensive for the size of portion you get, there was not a TON of options on the menu either. I would probably not go back if I had a choice in venues in the area.
Food was great. Service was excellent. The noise level was deafening. Should have brought my ear plugs. Yikes!!
Great menu and drink options
We are lunch at off hour and still service very slow. Entrees came at least 30 min after appetizers. Don’t need that much gap at lunch.
Water and iced tea both had funny taste- something definitely wrong their tap.
Beautiful venue- mediocre food.
Can believe they charged us $3.00 for a slice of bread ?!?
Love this place! You feel like you’re on vacation when inside! Great food and drinks!
DanielleW., thanks for the awesome review! We appreciate the recommendation and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
A little bit pricey but food was good. Glass of wine $10. Had crab cakes. They were yummy. My son had the chicken pasta & peas dish. also yummy. Portions aren’t big. Atmosphere great! Little loud but it’s ok. Can’t wait to sit outside when it gets warmer next year. They should figure how to warm up the outside areas for colder weather dining. It’s so open and fresh. Bathrooms are a big tell tale of if the restaurant I clean. Yup clean! Keep it up guys. We will be back to try other dishes.
This restaurant's focus on flipping tables was eye-popping. We'll not return.
Great service and ambient settings from start to finish of our meal
Prs9500, thanks for the great review. Glad the atmosphere left such a positive impression and we look forward to seeing you in the future.
Great place to enjoy an evening with friends. Great food - service a bit slow. We were early By 15 min but made to wait until 10 min after our reservation time. They had plenty of tables empty - so did not understand why they made us wait so long - we are repeat customers - wish we received a positive treatment
DaveK, thank you for the review and your feedback. As a new restaurant, it is important for us to hear how our guests perceive all aspects of their visit. If we had you wait unnecessarily for your reservation, I apologize. We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again in the future.
The food was surprisingly great!!
JenniferH, glad we pleasantly surprised you! Thanks for the awesome review. Hope to see you again in the future.
The food is yummy the waiters are friendly and the atmosphere is gorgeous I loved the decor
Conversation difficult because of noise level.
BrendaB., thank you for the feedback. We will take it into consideration and we appreciate your patronage.
I love the ambiance of Hampton Social!!
The restaurant has a lot of pretty spot for those that like to take photos. Food were mediocre and pricey. I only like the cocktail drinks.
MamaBear, I'm sorry that your visit left something to be desired. We want our food to elicit as good a reaction as our environment and our cocktails. We hope you'll give us another opportunity in the future to make a better impression.
While the avocado toast was the best ever and my lobster roll delicious, it was so loud in there, I don’t see us coming back. A good idea would be to spray some insulation on the ceilings to absorb some of the noise. Also, and we didn’t sit at the bar but the stools need to have backs on them to put your (winter) coat on! I always put my coat against the back and lean on it so I can feel if somebody tries to take it. I was shocked to see strawberry ice cream melting all over my key lime pie.
rare, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate the feedback on the acoustics and will take it into consideration as we move forward and look for solutions. We hope you'll give us another opportunity in the future to impress.
Our experience at The Hampton Social, South Barrington was good. It was our first time being there and the service we got was good and the food was excellent. We went early so things were pretty quiet, but as we finished it was crowded and got very noisy. We will be back and next time we will be bringing other people with us.
Perfect for date night and even girls night! The atmosphere is so cool and from the appetizers to the drinks even to our entrées everything was delicious!
I love the ambiance. It’s the perfect place to meet your girlfriends for lunch on a Saturday. Bonus on the live music that was playing.
Amazing food and always great service
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 enjoyed the crab, pasta and pizza. Everything tasted outstanding ,we enjoyed the atmosphere. Our server, Maxine was excellent, very efficient and responsive. The food hot and amazing! I highly recommend this restaurant. Will definitely be going back! Thank you so much!
JaneM, what an awesome review! You tried some good menu items during your visit! We appreciate your patronage and we hope you'll come back again. We'll be sure to pass the kind words along to Maxine.
I thought the chairs were extremely uncomfortable. Getting a drink was very slow. Very loud too. My husband had the fish and chips. Said it was not good at all, no taste and soggy. Cute place and waitress was nice. I don’t think I’d go again. Sorry
Clam chowder and crab cakes were warm not hot
Sent the crab cakes back
Chef needs to be reminded - we want got food
Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. While I'm glad to hear that the service and environment measured up, you are correct in indicating that our guests do deserve hot, now warm food. We appreciate the feedback and will do better in the future.
Kristina was a great aerver
The best shrimp tacos. Usually, fish restaurants are expensive. I thought the menu was reasonably priced. We will go again.
Thanks for the awesome review! Glad you enjoyed your visit and that the shrimp tacos made a lasting impression. We hope to see you again in the future.
Everyone loved their order! Very friendly staff will definitely return. Very different inside. Fun place
Delicious food and great ambiance!
Meh. This kind of someone who has never been to the coast ideals what dining one the coast is like. Do you even have a wine list?
TomC., sorry to hear that your visit left something to be desired. Hopefully you'll give us another opportunity in the future to impress you with the extensive wine list that we do, indeed, have.
Service was great. Food very good. Roof was leaking. Surprising because building is new. Enjoyed lunch more than supper.
We enjoyed a very nice evening at The Hampton Social. Food was very good. Our server, Maxine, was excellent. My only complaint would be the noise level. Very loud! It’s not enough to keep us away - just an irritant.
KarenT, thank you so much for the review. We'll be sure to pass the kind words along to Maxine and we will take your feedback about the acoustics into consideration. We hope to see you again soon.
Very load and energetic environment. Server was very good. Food was great. Little pricey but not over the top. Over all very nice.
DougZ., thank you so much for the review. Glad to hear that both the service and your meal were exemplary. We appreciate the feedback on the acoustics and will definitely take it into consideration. We hope that you decide to dine with us again in the future.
I’m not one to typically write a review but I felt really compelled to do so. So the evening started off great the drinks were great at the atmosphere was pretty nice. A little louder than I would have hoped. The thing that really threw me off was the food. We are the Brussel sprouts appetizer and it came to our table in under 2 minutes. At first I was very surprised and thought wow they can make that fast but it was lukewarm. When my wife and I order our entree they also were delivered in 5 minutes or less. The food came out lukewarm and didn’t seem well cooked. It made me feel as if the food was sitting under a hot lamp waiting for people to order. We were in an out in under 30 minutes. When you go to a place like that you expect an experience when your spending $100+ on a meal. It just felt like I was at a red ribbon or fast causal restaurant. The whole dinner was very off putting.
I'm sorry that your meal disappointed. We are always striving to provide our guests with an exceptional meal, hot from the grill while being respectful of their time. If we failed to meet that goal, I apologize. I hope that you'll give us another opportunity in the future to make a better impression.
Fun, lively atmosphere and delicious food! We will be back!
First time here and it was a huge disappointment. There was a bug in my drink, the food was just mediocre and the service was SLOW! Very $$$ too. So many better choices.
Great restaurant and very tasty food ! Wine prices high. Service was good . Restaurant very clean.
