We know it is no fun to wear a mask while enjoying a night out, but our staff's safety is no laughing matter.
We require all guests to wear a mask while moving about the restaurant, and when speaking to Clyde's employees.
Masks have been a hot topic, with passionate views on all sides. With our team and their families' health at stake, we must err on the side of caution. We hope you will understand and look forward to the day, hopefully soon, when we can all throw our masks in the trash.

I’ve been coming to the Hamilton for years and after moving to NY, I missed the whole experience. Recently traveled back to DC with my girlfriend for a weekend trip and knew I had to take her here. The Hamilton is by far one of my favorite restaurants in DC, it’s massive which allows for multiple different reason to visit. From grabbing a beer with coworkers after work in the front bar, bringing clients for a business lunch in the private booths or just grabbing dinner with friends and family in the large dinning room, you’ll never be disappointed. Food is outstanding and the variation is great, there is always something for everyone. Drinks are also very good, was original skeptical of the espresso martini but glad we ordered them. Will always come back here.
Service and ambiance were excellent. Food and drinks were very tasty overall. But the pasta dishes were super-salty and the fluke was pretty bland. Burger, bento box, crab soup and sushi were excellent.
The food was excellent, our server was friendly and attentive, and the decor was really cool.
The Hamilton was a convenient meeting place. The drink menu and food were good. The bread pudding was exceptional. Service was just ok. I'd go back if I was in the area but it wouldn't be a destination for me.
There was a bug in my food and the staff didn't even acknowledge that anything was wrong, they just took the plate away and didn't offer anything. It was all very nonchalant and I that it was strange. I'm not normally one to complain, but a bug in my food is not okay. Clearly the kitchen is dirty.
Seemed short staffed. Took a while to get table cleared and seated despite having reservation. Waiter was great but appeared to have too many tables assigned. He was courteous and great, though the timeliness of the food was not great. Only negative on food quality was dessert - ordered the confetti cake option. It was quite stale as if the cake had been sitting for a few days.
While in DC for a day before heading to NYC, we stumbled upon The Hamilton and decided to give it a try. We were NOT disappointed. The service was amazing, the food delicious, and the atmosphere relaxing. It’s a MUST when in the area.
This was my first dining experience at the Hamilton. Met with a couple of colleagues for a business meal and planning session. The wait staff (Troy) was impeccable, very personable, and timely with all orders coming from our table. I will definitely be eating there again soon.
Food was pretty good and well-priced for DC, social distancing was excellent, waiter was attentive, dining room was beautiful, clean, and comfortable
Fantastic all around, except the funfettie cake. It was old and dry.
Lincoln’s first trip to DC
Good ambiance, service was slower than expected, food was good but average.
I was a little hesitant about booking this restaurant as the menu has a lot going on. Sometimes it’s hard for restaurants to give their 100% when there’s so many different options on the menu... but i’m SO glad I gave this place a chance. It definitely didn’t disappoint. We went for Easter brunch and it was lovely weather, we got to sit outside and enjoy some sunshine with delicious food. Our waitress was amazing and took care of us without asking how we were doing every two seconds. A little on the pricey side so I personally would go for more special occasions instead of just casual dining. Bathrooms were nice and clean as well, always a plus!
The food and service were impeccable. We had Easter brunch and I would definitely return
The service could not have been better!
This was our first time dining at The Hamilton, I must say it was amazing! Roman was our server & super phenomenal. We’ll be back again!
Service was great. Good was ok. I would come back.
Great service, food prepared as expected, central location.
Exceptional service with amazing food. The quality of the ingredients made the meals outstanding.
Service was incredible. Drinks were okay. Salmon was outstanding!
Really great place to eat highly recommend this place
Going to The Hamilton is a tradition when we visit DC. This time we were able to take our daughters.
Food was good. Our server was helpful by providing information on the different food and drinks. I appreciate how the restaurant practiced CoVid health/safety guidelines: took our temperatures, wearing masks, physically distanced from other groups dining inside.
Rooms are vaulted and wooden, with booths or tables well spaced. We got a booth. Food was quite good but not great. We had burgers and a crab cake sandwich. All the meats were good and buns very fresh. However, the service was slow, indifferent and sloppy: spilt water on our plates (and did nothing) and, horror of horrors, poured a beer from an upside down can into a glass = 1/4 beer 3/4 froth. Not a standard you would expect at this price point.
Great food at a great price. I really enjoyed the ambiance and the service was good as well.
I live in the area and have been going to the Hamilton regularly for a few years now. The Hamilton routinely delivers incredible food (including their bomb sushi!), excellent service, and a classy ambiance with their traditional old DC style. I recommend Hamilton to all my friends, they have something for every palette!
The Hamilton never disappoints.t The food and service is always 1st class. I look forward to returning soon!
Food was great (Crab Cakes, Bolognese, Shrimp and Grits, Calamari and Fried Wings). Nelson, our waiter was great too. I highly recommend...
My waiter was more than nice. The food was very good. I have no complaints. Oh i didnt see meatloaf on the menu. Lol
My husband and I love coming to Hamilton, especially for brunch! The food is always delicious. The drinks are always fun and tasty. Servers here are also attentive, but they don’t interrupt too much. Overall, Hamilton is one of our go to restaurants for dates or for meals with visitors.
Abby was excellent and attentive. Her service was impeccable.
If you’re a sushi fan I recommend the Dynamite Roll for an appetizer. Nelson was also a great server! He was efficient and well versed in the menu for a recommendation. I had the Blackened Catfish Etouffee for my main course and it was delicious
So great!! Food was delicious, waitstaff was super attentive. Will definitely be returning!!
Server was poor. Not many diners-took forever to bring drinks. Was asked 3 different times to bring something and “forgot”.
Great, friendly waitstaff. Wonderful food!!
Some of the best sushi I ever had the waiter was very knowledgably I enjoyed my dinner here a lot
My favorite restaurant in DC, of course, did not disappoint. My first visit to The Hamilton since the beginning of the pandemic had me feeling very safe (25% capacity had us seated far away, >12 ft, from any other diners, in the most spacious high-ceiling dining room). Drinks, food, service, and artwork as brilliant as ever.
Everything was great as always I was taken back by the price of the sushi!! They went up on all their prices, but it’s always good so I’m not really complaining.
