Very interesting, well-prepared food. Unfortunately, service was very poor—service was slower than it should have been even under the current circumstances, and server behaved rudely (huffing and eye-rolling) when asked for an item that had been requested once already. Not a pleasant dining experience.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The oven roasted brussel sprouts was amazing and the crab cake. Everyone loved the atmosphere. Service was well-timed and friendly.

We’re from Miami , Florida and this restaurant made our whole trip. Our server was the greatest, he really connected with us although we were tourists. He suggested great plates and not by just offering the most expensive one. He took the time to ask us what we liked and everything, he definitely cared about making us happy and boy did he!

Drinks: 1-5 scale
Cider-5 (Whiskey based. Spiked apple juice. Soooooo good! It’s a mixed drink where you can taste all the elements)
Hamilton Mule-5 (Vodka based. LOVED the smoky flavor this drink brings.)
Blood Sangria- 5 (Tequila and Red Sangria mixed. At first we were hesitant but oh may goodnesss! The tequila was definitely present in the drink but not so strong. It has a nice balance)

Food: 1-5 scale
Summer Roll - 5 (Appetizer- very fresh to start the meal. Pure veggies kinda like a veggie roll but not a spring roll. The peanut sauce is to die for!!!)
Beef Stroganoff-5 (SO creamy but nothing over powering. It all comes together VERY well. The meat is SO tender)
Rigatoni-5 (
Grilled Salmon-5 (OMG where do I start. It’s a good piece of salmon for a hungry gal. The salmon was so juicy and yet so crispy on top giving you two different textures to experience with such amazing flavors)

Dessert:
Gooey Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream-4 (Something we have never heard about and wanted to try it. We ended up enjoying it more than we thought. I am giving it a 4 only because it tastes VERY similar to the little chocolate chip muffins you eat as a kid. Just throw some vanilla ice cream and you’re good)


We went for dinner and the environment was great. For everything we ordered we paid $150 with a well earned tip in which we were able to choose ourselves. If we were staying closer to that area… we would definitely eat there once every day.

I went to The Hamilton for my birthday! But it’s also a go-to spot for me. They brought me out a cake with a candle, which was sweet. And they made sure my drinks were made REALLY well. Can’t say enough good about this place.

Booth was very comfortable and private. Our server, however, did not stop by the table for at least 10 minutes, and service was slow for the rest of the evening, with managers and other waiters frequently filling in. Food was good overall. Stingy with the bread on the charcuterie boards (2 small pieces of bread each!) but the items on the boards were excellent. Harvest salad and mushroom pasta were excellent. Fries with the steak frites were mediocre, although the steak was good. Shrimp & grits was good but stingy on the grits. Overall, a good meal. A bit overpriced for what you get, but most DC restaurants are these days.

We loved our anniversary dinner here! We were running late because of traffic and being new to navigating downtown DC and they still serviced us and made sure to congratulate us on our anniversary. It's a large and beautiful place! Loved it!

Had dinner here while on a long weekend family getaway to DC. Definitely make reservations even though this place is huge. The place is vibrant and well located for once you get done visiting the museums and other landmarks. The drinks selection is vast and their menu has something for everyone, even picky kids. Our server, Nelson, was polite and attentive. Glad we stopped here and look forward to coming again!

Got the Hamilton sushi platter and rosemary truffle fries.
The sushi delicious but a bit pricey for what you get. I suggest just ordering two rolls separately. The California roll and seaweed hand wrap was not worth the extra cost.
It came with soy sauce and was optionally offered Spicy Mayo and eel sauce.
The fries were average, but could definitely taste the hint of rosemary and truffle.

I noticed another table getting bread so I asked the waiter and she added in an order of (free) bread. I wish they just provided, or asked it to all tables in the beginning. The butter was nice and whipped which was smooth and delicious.

The ambiance was really cool and buzzing with people on a tues evening!
