Food was especially delicious. We’ve gone here for years and this was one of the best dinners we’ve had—all 4 of us loved what we ordered.
The missing ingredient at this otherwise great destination restaurant is the quality of the food. It has been hit or miss the last three or four visits that we made. I think it may be a combination of lowering the quality of the ingredients and lack of attention to detail. I hope the new owner can turn the food quality around. Everything else is just fine as is!
Father’s Day with family.
Hamilton's Grill has a new owner and chef. Not to worry! We were told it was even better than before and it is. The meal was super and given the perfect night for open air dinning along the canal, it couldn't be better.
The restaurant is on the pricey side, but BYOB made the cost not unreasonable
Great meal and service! Happy to see Brian taking over this great spot!
Apparently their succulent lamb chops must be a big seller, 'cause we didn't dine too late, and they were already almost out of them ! Yes indeed, they were good .
We've been going to Hamilton's since it opened. We especially enjoy the lovely outdoor dining next to the fountain. Although the food and service were good I was annoyed by the reservation policy. When I made the reservation I asked for outdoor seating. When I called to confirm the reservation they noted I had asked for outdoor seating. When we arrived, although there were open tables outside, the hostess told us she couldn't seat us outside and that they don't reserve those seats but that it was first come first served. When I pointed out that there were a couple of tables for two open, one of which had a "reserved" sign on it, I was told that this was for a "shareholder". After I persisted in my request to be seated outside my wife and I were placed at an open outside table. Within 10 minutes of our being seated I saw that two other couples were seated outside at 2 tables originally set for 4. Not sure therefore what exactly their "policy" is. Having to go through this initial hassle marred what was otherwise a nice night.
we love the food at Hamilton's Grill....fresh, flavorful and seasonal. It never fails to please!
The good, service and ambience are
always top shelf here!
Second visit since Brian took over as chef. Scallops first time Lamb second time. Both excellent. Noise level varies by room. The garden room is pleasant even though the entrance passes through this room.
A BYOB tucked off the main streets of Lambertville that has great food, a limited menu but good variety with good service. It is expensive but worth it.
The shrimp were raw and were sent back. They promptly cooked them, but they tasted like iodine. The sweetbreads were tasteless. The blueberry pie was good. The price was exorbitant considering the poor quality and lack of taste of the food.
Food was excellent but slow to come.. service or kitchen?
Timeless space. The new menu is DELICIOUS!! Stephanie’s service was perfection as always.
Very nice evening. I actually thought the food was better than usual. The service was attentive and friendly without being intrusive, the ambiance is always delightful and the location is so pleasant. A lovely evening indeed.
Delicious meal. Appetizer was a bit challenging .. shrimp was fully shelled.
excellent new chef / owner at the helm, Brian Held!
Excellent food, perfunctory service.
New chief/part owner Brian has refreshed the menu selections while retaining the ambience.
The food was very good - a nice menu selection and presentation. Service was a bit slow and we needed to ask more than once for items requested. We learned that the restaurant is under new management, so hope they can work the kinks out. Like in the past, hope that they will offer outside dining once the weather improves.
3rd time here and the food is as good as ever. Unfortunately the service has been declining and has made it tough to return. The wait staff is understaffed and overwhelmed and hopefully will get it straightened out ASAP.
We had Mother's Day lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed. Was a bit surprised to arrive & see the Prix fixed menu, but overall it worked out. The food was delicious! They accommodated my daughter, who is a vegan, with a beautiful platter of veggies. The rest of us enjoyed the crab cheesecake as an appetizer (she had the house salad) and the scallops as the main course. My husband & I enjoyed the pignoli tart and the "kids" had the fresh fruit. The service was great, our waitress was friendly and professional. We enjoyed our lunch tremendously. We'll be back!
To start with the positive, the atmosphere is charming and the desserts were delicious. The rest was a bit disappointing. We went for Mother’s Day brunch. The brunch menu was never posted online, despite a message saying it was imminent, so we were unhappily surprised by the prix fixe menu being entirely lunch items, with no vegetarian option even upon request. They were self-admittedly understaffed for Mother’s Day, and the service - while very friendly - was not only slow but disorganized (wrong dishes, dropped items, clearing plates while people were still eating, etc.) Mostly the food was good, despite an underwhelming Niçoise salad and some extremely gritty scallops, but definitely not worth $45 a pop. I honestly don’t think we will eat there again. Perhaps a different day with a different menu and sufficient staff would have been much better.
This was our 4th or 5th time at the restaurant and it was a special occasion for our youngest daughter’s College Graduation. As always, the atmosphere and service were very good and the food was excellent.
Very good service, down to earth classy atmosphere. A little pricey, but would return for special occasions.
Our dinner was 5 stars! Cream of mussel soup and sweetbreads with wild mushroom risotto. Would definitely go back. The only thing that would have made the experience even better was NOT to be seated in the room with the grill. There are bar stools around the grill and it gets VERY noisy.
Can't wait for outside dining when the weather finally gets and stays nice.
My husband and I have been dining at Hamilton’s for years, some great meals some not so great. NOW great is the operative word. The food is simply wonderful and the service is beyond reproach. The restaurant feel so much more comfortable now . What a lovely place to spend an evening!
This is an unparalleled dining experience, with arguably the best food in the area.
We met friends for dinner at Hamilton's last weekend, and we were seated in the porch area, overlooking the canal. The waiter was very good and professional, and the food was interesting and delicious. I had a duck ravioli appetizer, and my husband had mussel soup. Both were excellent, The colossal shrimp were colossal and had a delicious anchovy sauce good for dipping. Entrees are on the pricey side, but you can share or stick with appetizers, which are very appealing. It is a BYOB restaurant, so no cocktails, and we didn't try dessert, which looked fairly ordinary.
We've eaten here before and the food has always been good. This time it was exceptionally good and our server, Chanel, was wonderful. We talked about how delicious our food was for the past two days!
The salmon and halibut melted in your mouth. Veg & potatoes cooked to perfection. Very good wait staff. Confused that open table did not show any tables open prior to 8:45; we arrived at 8:15 and there were 5-7 open tables. We we seated immediately, but would have appreciated an earlier choice via open table.
Our food was fantastic the service was poor. We have been patrons for years but we were extremely disappointed, in fact, we got up without having dessert because we could bare more of a wait. The manager had her back to us when we left. Not the same aura when Mr Hamilton was alive!
The best in this area. Food and service outstanding. We even like BYOB
The Hamilton Grill Room has great ambience and the fact that it's a BYO is wonderful. The food was very good too. However, there were some avoidable missteps that brought down the overall quality of the meal. White table clothes and candles, great! But don't then cheapen it by putting white butcher paper on top of the linens. The stuffed gnocchi was a fun idea, but its size made it difficult to keep the dough from being dense. My lamb with morel sauce was delicious, but it sat under the heat lamp too long and my chef-recommended medium-rare meat was medium-well by the time it came to the table. That's a pretty significant misstep for a $38 plate. All that said, with a little more attention to detail, this restaurant has all of the pieces it needs to be something exceptional.
Wonderful evening at Hamiltons Grill Room. The new menu is wonderful! Cannot wait to go back.
Gnocchi appetizer special was delicious and the two fish dishes we had were top notch.
The flavors were amazing!
Delicious food . Lovely staff. Staff must be very careful when they guaranteed allergen free meals. My companion had to send two dishes back when they came with butter after telling the staff that there was a daily allergy involved.
Usually a very nice dinner, but tonight there was a table of 4 with a very load woman who was fond of hearing her voice. Unfortunately, she was so load that it actually interfered with our conversation.
The wait staff was completely unconcerned, even after my wife mentioned it.
Reliably wonderful and beautiful restaurant with great service.
