Had the air conditioner on which was unnecessary since it was 45 degrees out. Could do without the afternoon entertainment.

The noise level was loud.

Food was very good as was the service.

Went during brunch time, around noon, there was no wait and we were seated right away. They take the wrist temperature at the front desk. The food was amazing and the restaurant is impeccable clean. Felt very safe dining there.

Nice place but didn't really feel safe there. Way too many people, tables were too close together and people in the bathroom without mask and lots of kids running around. I requested outside and did not get it. Probably won't return. They need to take this virus seriously.

LAJEMA, thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We're sorry to hear that you didn't feel safe during your visit. Please be assured that we adhere to the state of Illinois' requirements for table spacing. We take temperatures at the door and require masks whenever guests are away from the table. We post signs in the washrooms asking guests to wear their masks but we cannot police adults in these spaces. There is personal responsibility required.

My first time at Hampton Social....decided to try it since they offer a brunch menu on Saturdays. Food was GREAT! Service was excellent. I LOVE that they have lots of rose' offerings. My only complaint is that the noise level was quite high (even at 50% capacity) and I had to speak loudly for my partner to he me across our small, two-person table. Definitely going back there again.

My wife did not care for the lobster roll. She said it tasted fishy. My steak frites was pretty good but small portion. The avocado toast was excellent. The food came out very quickly, which was surprising because the restaurant was very busy. The waiter was very nice but never asked if we wanted drink refilled. The bill was $80 without the tip. A bit high for what was served, but it is south Barrington so that's to be expected.

It was horrible.
We had a birthday party there and our waiter was a small little polish lady who did not know how to serve us at all. She forgot our drinks. The bar tender had to come over and say the second round of drinks is on me I am so sorry.
My family had to go up to the bar and get the drinks all by them selves from the bar.
The waiter took my soup away when I was not even done with it.
This was a brunch on Sunday afternoon.
Horrible experience.

The service was horrible. We sat for 10-15 minutes before I finally flagged someone over to get us water. We were seated without menus, only to find out we needed to scan the bar on the table to see it. Wish the hostess would have told us that. Food was way overpricrled for what it was. I found no reason to ever go back. Plenty of other proven good restaurants near by to go to.
