Appetizer and dessert were superb however the main courses were a disappointment. They weren’t very interesting, the vegetables were limp and my filleted bronzino was still full of bones. The waiters arm crossed full of me (which should never happen) and our napkins were plucked out of our water glasses and dropped unceremoniously on the table to make room for the water. Nice evening but I paid for a very nice one and didn’t get it. You also should Espresso.

We have stayed away on New Year's Eve for several years cause we felt the meal and value was sub par compared to dining here on other occasions. Tonight the fOod and service were quite good. However, it was very slow. It seemed as though there was not enough personnel to manage the evening. Certainly the experience was better than previous New Years eves, but they need to work on pacing.

Christmas Eve Perfection! Hamilton's Grill Room was the perfect choice this year for our family Christmas Eve tradition. We loved sitting in the Garden Room with all the lights -- so perfect for the holidays. The special menu had so many wonderful choices that accommodated all of our tastes and desires. Everyone was so happy with their choices -- cooked to perfection, innovative and delicious. The service was perfection -- attentive, friendly and knowledgable about the food offerings. One of of favorite top area restaurants and always highly recommend! Buon Appetito!

Disappointed with the quality of the steak. I couldn’t eat my piece because it was so tough. My daughter had same entree and hers was much better.

Nice place to eat, a little difficult to find since it is tucked back in an alley way. More directional signage would be great. Food was good, not too much and not to little in amounts. Remember it is a BYOB.

Once upon a time this place was great. Sadly, no longer. The food was mediocre at best. I had the lobster - which was dried out, and it came with fries - also dried out. Others had steak which was 50% grizzle. The service was abysmal. Left for 20 minutes at a time with dry water glasses. There was a 45 minute weight between when they picked up our appetizer plates until our entrees came, which sat in front of us untouched for 5 minutes because the waitress had cleared our silverware after the appetizers and never replaced them - then vanished. I was embarrassed after raving about the place I used to go to frequently when I was local and then have this be the result after an hour drive. Never again.

Food was overpriced and nice but forgettable. I ordered the duck, which was literally 4 medium sized bites. My friend had the same and received a similarly miniscule portion. The other two people in our party had normal sized entrees. Mysterious. It was like they didn't have enough duck and divided the last portion in half to make enough for 2 orders. The food did not live up to the 20+ and 30+ prices on the menu. Hamilton Grill is not what it used to be. Still, it has a nice location and cozy interior. Centrally located for those who want to spend the day in Lambertville.

My girlfriend and I went here tonight for her birthday. Everything about the experience was great. Our server Kristin was so attentive and did an amazing job! I had the flash grilled lobster and it was the best meal I’ve ever had. My girlfriend had the rack of lamb and it was phenomenal as well! To finish off my meal I had a cup of coffee and it beat every coffee shops coffee i’ve had. I don’t understand how some can give such poor ratings as my girlfriend and I have never been disappointed, it’s an easy 5 stars. looking forward to coming again.

My friend ordered a well done strip steak without the sauce. It arrived underdone, and with sauce. She had to send it back twice, had and had to get up to find the waitress in order to do that. Each time it was brought back she neglected to bring her cutlery, and once again, had to get up to find the waitress to get the necessary utensils. It's not like the restaurant was crowded, we were one of two tables with customers. Now I understand why. This used to be one of my favorite restaurants, not anymore.

We had an early reservation-6:00- and yet they were already out of items in the menu. It was my daughter's thirtieth birthday and she was really looking forward to the rack of lamb. We were very disappointed to learn they had run out. We ordered the clam chowder soup which was tasty but was mostly broth. We were to find out that they subsequently ran out of that also. It seems we must had gotten the last little bit. My husband had the flat iron steak which was tough. My daughter and I both got the NY strip. It was fine but uninspired. We were also seated by the door which proved to be very chilly. Overall it was a disappointing dinner.

Thanksgiving meal was awful. Food was badly prepared. Menu was strange. Crab appetizer was first and o.k.... Next, mushroom soup (button mushrooms in broth)...no flavor at all. Then a mayonnaisey Waldorf salad with cayenne and cinnamon??... very hot (spicy)...entrees we ordered : Turkey no gravy (tough and dry), dressing (drier) and with cranberry sauce poured on top (SO SOUR) served with beets (?)...Entree 2: Roast Beef that could not be hacked with a steak knife! Both were uneatable. Dessert: Pumpkin pie was under cooked and tasted like pure sugar. To cap off the night we ordered coffee (no espresso there). Delicious coffee...no cream, no milk...We were served Blue John (skim). The owner or manager asked how the meal was and I asked for real milk. ...she returned with whole milk and told me she had to go all the way to the pantry for me (I did not tell her the food was horrible)! Adding to this insult the restaurant gives us a bill that automatically includes 20% for the server. We like to tip well and the service was fine (excepting the manager) but let the buyer decide what the service is worth...? They even suggest you add a tip on top of their take. SICKENING.

The restaurant was nice enough as was the staff but I am giving it a lackluster review because of SMALL portions (the prices are high enough) and I have allergies and I was so limited to what I could it it was TRULY DISAPPOINTING. I am allergic to garlic and onion and, I have to say, most good restaurants are able to work around that, most chefs are willing to. Last night we ate at Karla's and they were able to give me exactly what I wanted working around my allergies. But here I was stuck having steak for an entree (not a huge fan of steak) and the one appetizer I could have (shrimp with anchovy sauce) was delicious but the portion was paltry. My husband also felt his appetizer portion (crab cake) was pretty paltry. We won't visit again.

We have eaten here several times and each time we have not been disappointed. There were 7 of us this time and Hamilton’s Grill Room Was very accommodating. Their front room is decorated stunningly with perfect level lighting. My crab cake was luscious and the butterscotch custard for dessert was heavenly.

An early Sunday. A walk by the canal path. Drinks at the Boat House. Dinner at Hamilton’s. We normally sit at the grill and enjoy the show. This time we sat in the front room with the view of the canal. Shrimp in anchovy sauce to start. This is a menu item that is uniquely wonderful, extraordinary sauce. Next scallops and steak au poivre. Both prepared perfectly, scallops gently grilled (or pan fried) with parsnip ‘mash’ and the peppercorn encrusted Delmonico was excellent. The quiet room, gentle tiny white lights above, attentive service- all made for a very enjoyable evening.

Hostess seated us at a nice table but near the door to entrance when we arrived, we asked to be moved and were seated in main dining room.

We had heard from a knowledgeable source that Hamilton's Grill Room might not be what it once was...the source proved correct...two out of four entrees - the bronzino and the duck - were essentially inedible...the salmon - the other two entrees - was decent...the oyster appetizer (on deviled eggs??) was about the worst example of a fried oyster app I've had...our dessert for the table...i can't even remember what type of baked good it was supposed to be...but our waitress offered that it had been on the menu forever...was also inedible...the coffee was so insipid and tasteless that we sent it back...which we did with the dessert...and should have done with two of the entrees...the table next to us included several diners that were so loud and obnoxious that we finally had to have the manager come over and quiet them down...the other diners in the room kept on giving them dirty looks...why management did nothing on their own for almost a half hour is beyond me...i must say that our waitress and the rest of the staff were very cordial...and i have nothing but good thoughts for them...the food...not so much...and that really is why you're there in the first place...
