The food was amazing and our party of five included three past servers. We all commented on the excellent level of care and knowledge we received. We were there in a Thursday at 9:00 pm and it was busy but not overwhelmingly crowed. I took our servers recommendations for my app and dinner and they were great. My husband and our friend got the sushi while I had the ny strip and my girlfriends had seafood. We passed everything around and they were all winners. Can’t go wrong.

Always a solid choice for lunch. This time we were lucky enough to snag in if the booths with doors (so helpful to have a private conversation). Only issue was it took a really long time for us to first get waited on. It got better as it went along. We will definitely be back.

It was truly an amazing dining experience. I went there for the Half-price sushi, which was phenomenal compared to a lot of places in DC. Definitely a top place for sushi in the District.

The service was great and helpful in giving us space, but also being attentive. Would definitely go back again!

We absolutely loved Hamilton!! Our server, Darian, was personal, professional and helpful in guiding our menu selections. The food was quite flavorful and fresh. The atmosphere was fun and we had a fantastic time. I can’t wait to return to DC for an encore eating experience. The only annoying thing is parking. We had to park it in a garage a couple of blocks away. Parking was validated for partial garage cost.

The food was amazing and so was dessert. It was a bit crowded, maybe because it was President’s Day weekend, but the service was great. Our waitress Kelsey was awesome!

The food was good and I really enjoyed the ambiance, but our service was very poor. Our waitress looked very stressed and was forgetting to bring us things we asked for, like my sister's drink. If she did bring us something it took her a while to get back around to us.

We visited during the sushi happy hour and ordered 8 rolls, which all fit perfectly on a large square plate. They were all delicious (try the Firecracker signature roll)! The service was good, but our waitress didn't come by to check on us often. It may have been because the restaurant was busy (not even close to packed) but we needed a water refill which wasn't offered. Other than that everything was great!

Good food, great donuts, bread, appetizers. Sunday brunch very slow and loud. Ordered at 12:15, received food at 1:30pm. Overworked staff forgot to put in our order. Not worth the hassle of driving into the District and hunting for parking or paying White House adjacent parking premium.

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!).

I've come here several times before but I had an awesome experience coming here for my bday last week. The dining area is intimate and wasn't too noisy for me and my guest. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive, she was always open to answering any questions we had about the menu. She even made an effort to see if certain ingredients could be switched out. What I like most about this restaurant is the variety of food options they offer and the option to check out live music on the ground level.

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.
