    Old Ebbitt Grill offers a timeless dining experience. The historic charm and classic decor create an inviting atmosphere, making it a top pick for history enthusiasts like me visiting DC. The menu features American cuisine, with particularly outstanding seafood. We ordered many fresh oysters, which were perfect and highly recommended. The attentive and kind staff enhanced our overall experience. We visited for a casual lunch as tourists and thoroughly enjoyed it. Making a reservation is advisable, as it likely contributed to our seamless dining experience. Highly recommended!

    We were greeted with warmth and hospitality. We were about 15 minutes early, and they were able to seat us. Our waiter, David, was attentive and charming. Every staff member greeted us with a smile and a warm hello. The food was delicious, the presentation lovely, and the drinks were awesome. Thank you to The Hamilton for making our anniversary special.

    We had a lovely table for our special occasion lunch right by the big window. The six of us ordered multiple dishes from the hot and cold mezze and enjoyed every single one. My son said the chicken kabob was “the best chicken I have ever eaten in my life.” The zucchini pancakes, roasted Brussels sprouts and Labneh with zaatar were standouts for us, and the hot puffy bread of course. The pides had good flavor but just a tad too much cheese on top for us. Service was very friendly and efficient. Thank you for making our lunch memorable.
