Mask Usage
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.

We used to eat at The Hamilton frequently but hadn't been since the start of the pandemic. We we quite surprised to discover The Hamilton no longer serves bomboloni. Everyone in our party was looking forward to having some.

Love the Hamilton for a casual lunch. Great server. Food is pretty basic but our order was accurate and I asked for a lot of exceptions. Felt safe w/social distancing measures. Had to request a booth but got one with doors. Overall very good as long as you’re not after something fancy schmancy.

The cream of crab soup was disappointing as it contained no lump crab. The salmon was overdone and dry. I was disappointed.

This time the beef was late and overcooked. The portions were small in comparison to other occasions. Although the waiter’s service was good, my guests were disappointed. I’m afraid to repeat.

The food was great and so was the atmosphere. The service could have been better. The server was nice but slow. The man at the front desk was unfriendly and rude.

I have allergies, and the waitstaff was very dedicated to ensuring my meal was allergen-free. Also, the business dress code is "smart casual," but they didn't turn us away even though two people in my party did not understand what that meant. Thank you!

Food to a long time to be served, waited 20 minutes for a sushi Bento box and a steak salad. Restaurant was almost empty inside with maybe 5 tables outside in use.

The overall experience of the Hamilton was excellent. I ordered the 8oz. NY strip Mid-Rate and it was cooked perfectly. By far the best steak I’ve had in over a year. I would recommend this place to anyone in DC, especially if you’re staying at The Willard.

The staff was great ... kudos to our waiter, Zack, who did an awesome job. The brick chicken was delicious. There were only a couple of hiccups ... the veggies were plated too early and were quite cool on the plate and a hair was found in the food. Management went above and beyond to make it right. Overall it was a good experience and the food was good enough that we would return.

Great time all around. Admittedly, we were those last guests with a 10:30pm reservation; but manager Evan and bartender Robert were super hospitable and took care of us. Sushi was great!! First time back for late night sushi happy hour since before the pandemic and we’ll definitely be back again.

Our server was amazing! Very attentive and helpful. Our food was not good at all...Very bland. I had the pasta bolognese, and requested to have it subbed for the salmon dish. The pasta was very bland without much flavor. The salmon dish was rather small.

My boyfriend ordered shrimp and grits and his portion was small, and very bland as well.

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.
