My friend and I came here for dinner earlier this evening. It was easily said, a wonderful experience through and through. The host staff at the door were prompt and good to us. The wait staff were friendly, lively, and on point the whole evening. Our waitress was kind, had positive energy and did an excellent job. Compliments to the chefs and kitchen staff. Our food came out reasonably quick and all was delicious. We started with the fried calamari. Bread was served. Our main course was great. I looked at my friend and said, "now this is a medium cooked steak!" I had the petite sirloin salad. He had a sushi entree. All so tasty! The ambiance was fantastic. I enjoyed the bird theme in the room we had been seated at. The sound level was on the louder side but totally understandable in a well put together and seemingly popular establishment on a Saturday evening. Highly recommend and hope to return again soon. Thank you to all staff for a great experience. Enjoy your weekend.

The Hamilton is much of a muchness, menu is fine and the food is tasty it is though nothing out of the ordinary. It is good for Saturday lunch with friends if one is looking for somewhere central and reasonably priced. Service is fine and the atmosphere is busy and noisy but it does say “friendly”.

My sisters and I have been coming to the Hamilton for the past five years for special celebrations or just catch up time. The atmosphere is always great, the food impeccable, and the service spectacular. This time was no different. Our server was attentive and patient and the food was so flavorful, simply delicious. I look forward to returning for many more special occasions. Thanks!

This is our go to place when we have an event downtown. Reservations are definitely needed in advance. Especially if you want to be out at a certain. Time for a show. If you let your waiter know they will move things along. Fun sushi happy hour and wide range of food choices from sandwiches to steaks. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the sushi options and recommended a great bottle of wine to compliment. The place is large and can be loud but you can carry on a conversation with the rest of the table. You can’t go wrong here or at any of the Clyde’s restaurants.

Terrible food. Had to return my salad because they served it on a hot plate and was completely wilted. Main course not hot! Noise level off the chart. I won’t be back.

This is a go-to when I have family in town. The food and service always knock it out of the park, plus there's a little bit of everything on the menu, making it ideal for both the adventurous and conventional eaters.

Service was fantastic--everyone did what they could to make sure we made our showtime at a nearby theater. We had the pork tenderloin and mac and cheese--both were delicious.

The menu is varied enough to please everyone. When you are on the go in DC, The Hamilton's comfortable seating, efficiency and choices give a traveler a welcoming happy place to be. The noise and crowds when you enter in the bar area belie the comfort you can have once seated.

Brunch food tasted good but was cold. The deviled eggs were extremely salty. No manager checked how our dining experience was despite mentioning the comments to our waitress on the food.

Delicious benedict and a made from scratch Hollandaise that is so light it floats. Their brunch drinks were good. I want to go try their lunch, I hear their catfish is fantastic.

We arrived early for a 7:00pm reservation on. Friday night and immediately enjoyed the vibe. We were seated by 7:00pm in one of the many rooms and the service was exemplary! Enjoyed shrimp & grits and a Maryland crab cake platter.. Never had better! Hope to return!

Some of the best food we had on our trip. Everywhere in this area is busy, so make reservations in advance. Highly recommend the meatloaf. Our waitress was fantastic, can't remember her name but she was from Colorado Springs.

We had a great time at The Hamilton. It was my first time there. We each had chili (the soup of the day), the market salad, and dessert. What a lovely lunch! I will be back!

HUGE restaurant - very noisy in first few rooms. Try to sit in back room. Good value for the money. I told the waitstaff my husband can’t eat spicy food, even pepper. The mixed seafood pasta he ordered had red pepper flakes sprinkled on top! They offered to make a new one but we just exchanged plates-someone wasn’t listening. Also, entrees served a few minute following the presentation of the appetizer - too rushed. Best coleslaw ever!!

Great as always. Love watching DC walk by at the end of the day while sipping a cocktail. Love the cross-section of residents and visitors that occupy the tables around us enjoying the excellent food and service. We didn’t feel rushed even though the place was full. Planning a return soon.
