Brunch is busy, server missed a few things (no drink refills without explicit requests, wrong eggs Benedict brought to table). Menu however is great, and prices are reasonable. Also appreciate the size of Hamilton which can accommodate a lot of people (a plus when it's hard to find a brunch spot on the weekends in DC!).

We've been going to the Hamilton for years now, but the past few times we've stopped by, the service has been sub-par from start to finish. When we checked in for our reservation, the hostess seated several parties who came in after us before I had to follow up with her to get my party seated. Our server was wonderful, but her section was either oversat or the restaurant was short-staffed, because she wasn't able to check in on us frequently enough. The food took a long time to arrive (we got our appetizer promptly, but waited a good 45 minutes between finishing it and our entrees arriving) and our glasses would be empty for long stretches before our server would be able to get back to see about refills. I don't know if there's been a change in management, or we've just had really bad luck the last few times we've gone, but I don't think we'll be going back to find out.

The hostess continued to seat people before us. We had to remind her that we were there first and had a reservation. The waiter took 35 minutes to come take our order and about 20 minutes to bring boxes and the check.

I met a friend for lunch. The food was awesome, but it took 45 minutes before we were served our food. And it wasn’t that crowded so we weren’t sure why it took so long. This caused me to be late going back to work. We thought that lunch would not take so long. Other than that everything was fine.

Came in with reservations on a busy Saturday night. The hostesses seemed overwhelmed to say the least. While polite, they both looked as if it was their first nights, were too soft spoken and had a backlog of 20 people who were all trying to understand the check in process. It took us almost 30 minutes to be seated. We were among the only patrons with children and it was 'cramped' and 'chaotic' to say the least. We finally were lead to the main dining room and the meal was fantastic. I was about to walk out and go elsewhere because of the wait. Glad we didn't, but this is definitely not a restaurant to bring children.

The waiter, Daniel ( I think that was his name ) was very personable , on point and efficient.
The food was average but I was a little put off by the staff roaming around the tables looking for empties. No sooner had I put my fork down than someone cleared the table. Gave me whiplash

My family and I went to the Hamilton for dinner after enjoying a nice day out in DC. It was a Saturday, so we made reservations. We arrived approximately 30 minutes early and one of the managers was nice enough to seat us early. Upon sitting, we were immediately greeted by our waitress and given bread and water. The waitress was very nice and took our drink orders, which came out in a very timely manner for how busy the restaurant was. For an appetizer, my wife and I got the wings, which were tasty, meaty and affordable. For entrees, everybody at our table got something different and we all enjoyed our very tasty well cooked meals. I got the Hamilton Burger and it was delicious. The fries that came with the burger were awesome and on point! We saved some room for dessert and my wife and I got the lemon cheesecake. This was a great decision, as this was one of the best cheesecakes we've had in a long time. I have to give credit to the great service, from the waitress, to the lady cleaning tables, to the manager. This was one of the first restaurants I've seen where the manager was constantly on the move and helping his employees with everything from clearing plates to giving people more water. Overall, I have nothing but good stuff to say about the Hamilton and will defiantly be going back!
