Not the worst service but pretty close. It wasn’t busy, or short staffed. Food made up for the shortcomings.
Interesting menu choices. The restaurant now seems to cater to Japanese cuisine but the menu offers some French and American options. The restaurant is also decorated like an American restaurant. Food was ok.
Service seemed off. Food was great.
We are at The Hamilton 2 times in 3 days. Once in the bar and once in the dining room. Excellent food, ambience and service, Zachary in particular, our waitperson in the dining room. DC is full of good to great restaurants but we would head straight to The Hamilton if we were to visit again.
Great menu. From traditional American fare to sushi. The food and service were outstanding. Same owner as Old Ebbit Grill and you could tell. Same standard of excellence.
They put us in horribly small seat. We asked to be moved. The waitress said she would have to check with front desk. She never did. We got up and asked the front desk to move us which they did. The food was marginal at best. It was reasonably priced. The place was beautiful.
Everything was good except our waitress was not as good as she should have been. Our drinks came after our entrees and appetizers and we kept having to ask for water. It was the middle of the afternoon and not busy so it shouldn’t have happened
Awesome service and awesome food for a great price. I had the chicken and it was amazing. I know what you’re thinking. Chicken? Yes. Most flavorful I’ve ever had. Highly recommend!
Excellent food and service!
Great atmosphere, great staff.
Amazing as ALWAYS!!! Great food, great service and great atmosphere!!!
Chose The Hamilton For A Birthday Celebration And Had A Wonderful Time With Our Server Courtney.
With The Exception Of The Shrimp Cake Containing Seasoning Beyond The Birthday Participant’s Taste, The Food, Drinks, Atmosphere, Service, And Experience Were Grand, Amazingly Welcoming, And Just What Was Desired For This Evening.
Wonderful venue to meet and thank a dear colleague.
Varied menu. Me and my companion found many items to tempt us. And the food we chose was great. Good service in a very welcoming setting.
First trip back to DC post-Covid and was so happy to see The Hamilton is still awesome!
Amazing loved it
Food selection was smaller than expected. Lot of Japanese sushi rolls. Good but not sure if worth return trip.
Ordered burgers and took 90 minutes to get food. Food was cold when it arrived. Hamilton used to be a staple. We were disappointed in this experience, particularly given the competition nearby.
First, let me start by saying our server “Emalyn or Emilynn” was absolutely amazing!! Whenever I have another brunch, I will be requesting to be seated in her section. She was extremely pleasant and courteous. The ambiance was amazing and loved our booth seating. Just a regular Sunday brunch with the girls and it was nothing short of amazing. The food was great and the staff were all very lovely!
Our waitperson Meredith was fantastic... Food was great especially the sushi. One of my go-to spots in Washington DC
Food was good. Service was slooooow. Enjoyed the atmosphere though.
It was a busy night, and the staffing was a bit strained but they did a good job and we had an enjoyable meal. Loved the tomato melon gazpacho soup - delicious and different. The calamari app was also a hit and the shrimp and grits were great.
Efficient but perfunctory service. Good food and environment. Service seemed off. No smile. We filled up our own glasses instead of having the water be poured out of the bottle by the server, not the correct utensils, wait staff tried to clear our plates while our forks were still in our mouths. Dessert was fantastic. Blackberry shortcake and lemon raspberry bread pudding. Salmon was decent, not great.
I always love coming here, the ambiance is great and service is amazing. I tried the shrimp and grits but didn’t like it very much because there was too much sauce and not enough grits. However, the sautéed mushrooms and onions were perfect.
Great service! It was so busy I expected a long wait for someone to come to the table to greet us but we waited no more than 2-3 minutes. Drinks were refreshing and food was prompt, warm and fabulous!!
Celebrated my daughter’s birthday. Everyone working there was helpful, courteous and attentive! Our waiter was superb! Parking was a huge disappointment, but all else went well! Food was delicious!
Amazing place to eat, the food was delicious. The staff where great, they even asked about dietary restrictions.
Such good food and atmosphere. Would definitely go again just to keep trying stuff on the menu
Excellent service and delicious food!!
It was delicious!!
It was a great place to eat after a long hot day of walking. Our waitress Courtney was amazing!
The food was excellent and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. The service was a little slow and that is why it wasn't all five stars.
Wonderful location, price point, service and food.
The boozy milkshakes were a major draw and did not disappoint. Food was delicious. Location is excellent. I keep coming back.
Everything was delicious: wings, sushi, calamari, filet and dessert. Would definitely recommend and return!
Great food, beautiful restaurant. The food at our table: shrimp tacos, sushi, and lamb rigatoni. All very good. Our server, Michael was very attentive and sweet, just a little slow. We waited a while for our check, and he had a head waitress with him.
Everything was amazing. The server Nelson took good care of us. The food and drinks were worth every penny. We would definitely return.
The staff were fantastic. The food tasted amazing. The atmosphere for brunch was great.
We celebrated my Birthday at the Hamilton and liked the Ambiente. The Menue is not too big but reasonably priced for DC. We had Sushi and liked the food, but the Service was mediocre to say the best. The place was not too busy but we had to wait 15 minutes to place our order, they did not check back to reorder drinks or refill water and placed a cart with glasses right next to the table so that we were boxed in. I have much better memories of this restaurant and hope the bad Service is only temporarily due to COVID turnover of the wait staff.
