I made reservation for 6:00 . So we could make the show to national theater by 7:30. We sat down and informed waitress of that fact. We ordered a bottle of wine that 10 minutes later she stated was no longer available. So we chose another. After some time she brought empty wine glasses without our second choice . She finally came with a bottle . We immediately ordered appetizer of charcuterie as well as ordered a pastrami sandwich to split. The platter delicious and sandwich never came . Table next to us got appetizers and meals before us. We waited until we could not anymore. We had to get to show. Told waitress we had to leave and comp us for what we didn’t get. As she was checking us out . Meal turned up. We stated to late ... He took it away. We received check. 112.00 check.... she gave us a wine of 90 dollars when we chose a wine completely different. Our fault we didn’t notice beforehand. Basically it was supposed to be a wonderful diner before theatre with my beloved. Ended not so much... After the performance we went back to “Hamilton “ another glass of wine before heading home. Went to bar and were told to step away and go to table so waitress could deliver. Here is the thing. Both me and my boyfriend have been tremendous clients of so many Clydes restaurants and bars. Some of our closest friends are employed by Clydes companies. Never been to Hamilton before. Assumed it would be just like we have always known of goodness. I know nor recommend anyone To Hamilton

I like the Hamilton and have been here many times. This visit did not meet my expectations mostly due to service. The server was not attentive (never got refills on drinks) and did not check back with us to see if we needed anything. We had let her know we had theater tickets and the food did come out fairly quickly. But by the time she came back to see if we needed anything (more than 10 minutes after we had finished our food) it was too late to order coffee or dessert. I will go back but will hope for better service.

Dined at the Hamilton following a performance at The National Theater. It was perfect - delicious food, great location, lively atmosphere, great ambiance, and reasonable prices. The wait staff was particularly attentive to our elderly parents who were with us. I would definitely recommend and can't believe I have never been here before!

Food was fresh and yummy. I am doing keto and had the french dip without the bread. It was delicious. Service was slow. It took a while to get my club soda/ sparkling water. Food came fairly quickly. Server was pretty absent but service was picked up by rest of the team

Met with colleague for dinner on a Friday night.
Food was very good: she has the miso salmon and I had the steak salad. Asked for bread but it came after the bread. Was disappointed that shrimp and grits weren’t on menu although scallops and grits were.

I have been to Hamilton's several times in the past and even recommended it to several people. I was there in the afternoon this week and it was not crowded. There were in fact an abundance of staff there. The service was horrible by the server for numerous reasons and the food order took way too long. I believe the server forgot to put in my order.

The server was excellent, professional, and friendly and accommodated our need to eat quickly to get to a show. She didn't miss a beat! I appreciated the wide food options and loved everything we had: cornbread grilled cheese, triple salmon sushi roll, the mushroom stroganoff pasta (*amazing* - I keep thinking about it!), and brussels sprouts. I wish I'd had room for dessert or a milkshake.

Of all the establishments that the Clyde's Group operates - The Hamilton gets it just right with their great menu and super service - work in their Music Calendar (or any other event in downtown D.C.) and you cannot not have a great time. The Hamilton is always a recommended favorite.

Maybe a bad night? Our first time there and left disappointed. Wait staff seemed overwhelmed and mistakes to our order took a while to get corrected. My wife and I ate our meals separately due to this. Should have had them redo both. Did enjoy the Sausage Ragu as an appetizer. Meals were not good.

We ate dinner at the Hamilton restaurant before a late show at the Hamilton Live, the venue downstairs. The meal was fantastic - good food, great service in an energetic environment - and the setting was perfect for a special dinner with family before heading downstairs for the performance. Excellent cocktails, too!

Noise levels are simply too high for seniors to be able to enjoy the meal. We sat at a booth that was so tight that even our slimmest diners had a hard time getting in and out. Go off peak hours and ask for a table if you are in your elder years

This was my first time at the Hamilton and it was great! I met some friends for dinner after work and we were seated right at our reservation time. The cocktails were great (I had the Hamilton’s Cosmo—yummy!) and though we didn’t try any starters the main courses were delicious. My hanger steak (with fingerling potatoes and brandy-peppercorn sauce) was cooked perfectly. Next time I definitely want to try the pear and burrata appetizer and one of their boozy milkshakes! The atmosphere was lovely, the service was excellent. I bet the music is great too, though we didn’t have the opportunity to stay for it.
