Good time, don’t sit in middle, draft from heater blew on us the whole meal. We did not ask to change seating ... based on the service, I’m sure they would have accommodated us if we did.

32 oz porterhouse for two was exactly how we ordered it. Garlic mashed potatoes and flash fried brussel sprouts were excellent sides.
I found the overall experience to very good.

Cozy (small) rustic restaurant, we were excited to finally get a reservation to celebrate a birthday. The drinks were good, salad was great, but the steaks were comparable to our own. They do offer additional sauces for the steak for an additional charge which may make them more unique. The veggies were good, but only one per entree is offered.

We were satisfied with our dinner? yes, but it did not meet our expectations.

2nd time we have been there. We took some very good friends and neighbors who eat out a lot and all seven people at the table had an absolutely wonderful experience and are already planning on going back with others. These people are savvy diners and everyone had nothing but positives for HUS & BB.
You will not be disappointed if you choose to dine there. They also welcome people that would like to bring their own wine. They do charge $20/bottle but compared to some other places that isn't over the top. Do wish HUS & BB would consider the charge differently if the bill is over a certain amount but understand.

This was my 2nd trip to Hamilton’s Urban Steakhouse and I was once again, wow’d! The food is sooooooo unbelievably good!!!!! From appetizers to entrees, drinks and desserts, everything hits the mark and is all so delicious. We love the cauliflower fritters, the filet melts in your mouth and the brussel sprouts are done perfectly! This has officially become our new favorite spot!

I gave a two star rating for two reasons. First, the pasta dish looked old and tasted of nothing. In general, I would recommend eating steak or salmon at this restaurant (based on our party's feedback). Second, the table (I had a reservation) was really weird. They found a way to fit a round table into a square seating arrangement. Well, not really. It's very uncomfortable. The server let us know ahead of time that this table required some "adjustments." If that's the case, why not spend a few hundred dollars and replace the table/benches?

Just a thought, what is with the bacon candle on the charcuterie board? I don't dip things in the grease after I make bacon so I don't understand why I would in this context. Maybe that's more popular than I understand but just a thought for the restaurant.

It's also worth pointing out that this restaurant is cheap compared to other steak houses. So if they improved their non-steak/salmon selections and seating it would go a long ways.

If I were making a reservation again I would (1) request not to have the circle table and (2) eat only steak or salmon.

Our waitress Zoe was great. Unfortunately the food was not excellent which was a surprise and a disappointment. I got the seafood pasta which claimed I have a spicy lobster sauce. Not only was it not spicy it was flavorless with a nasty consistency.

We will not go back

Hamilton's was excellent from start to finish. The bartender was engaging and was obviously a very good mixologist. We got our drinks and moved to our table. The server was attentive, but not overly so, she was knowledgeable about the food and menu was helpful in answering questions. The food came out in a timely way, and it was excellent! We shared desserts which were wonderful as well. This was our first time to Hamilton's and we will definitely be going back!

Our fourth trip to this fine steak house, and they continue to excel. Large salads to begin, followed with wonderful steak and seafood. Desserts are large and sharable. Complement that with a skilled bartender and you have all he ingredients for a great evening. Very consistent and highly recommended.

The food was delicious as always from owners Paul and Wendy. They know how to pick a good chef and I love their menu options. The menu is small, as it should be. It’s fine dining! But if you love steak, there is plenty to choose from. The service and ambiance was amazing for a group or even date night. I can’t wait to go back.

I’ve had some good steaks, but this one ranked right up there with the best, cooked to perfection, flavoring/seasoning was spot on. Service was impeccable. It was our first time there and Griffin our server could not have been better with his recommendations and his service. Will definitely be going back in the near future.

Really great place. This was my first visit for a date night, and it impressed. Service was on point, very attentive staff in a small place (not cramped..just not a large bustling restaurant.) Food was excellent. I had the KC strip. Prices include sides, which was a nice surprise (used to a la carte style). Would definitely recommend for an intimate dinner.
