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.

I really like the Hamilton but they are pricey. The best value is their sushi happy hours when they take off 5 bucks from each roll. Normally the lowest roll is 11 bucks :O

The guys and I wanted to go out to treat ourselves this Labor Day weekend and without a doubt had the best experience we could imagine. From great recommendations from our server Nelson to the amazing food cooked and prepared by their talented chefs we couldn’t have been happier. We had a bottle of the Nautilus Shell followed by the Imperia Roll, and as a main course the Catch of the Day: a fantastic halibut. Lastly we finished the night off with some peach cobbler and cheesecake to share. The Hamilton you did not disappoint.

I came here for my anniversary and had an amazing time! We arrived almost an hour early for our reservation but they were able to get us seated right away in a private booth. The food was amazing, and while a little pricey, they give you a large enough portion for it to be worth it. The service was great and we were checked on the perfect amount of times. And at the end of our meal, they brought us a free dessert for the occasion, and we were wished a happy anniversary by multiple staff members throughout the night. Overall a great experience!

Menu has drastically changed and all my favorites are gone. They used to have one of the best charcuterie selections in DC, now the remaining appetizers are all fried foods and the entrees are mediocre. Service is still good.

Great service, terrific food. We mistakenly thought that they offered happy hour on the weekend. Management corrected our mistake but still gave us happy hour discount on sushi. Will be going back.

I’m so happy I kept my receipt to tell you that the server Edom A was amazing and extremely accommodating while still following covid standards. I also appreciate the manager working that day that assisted us. My table was there between 1:30pm-3pm and we ate outside. I’m glad we tried again as the day before our reservation was canceled by the restaurant due to randomly having an early closing. That wasn’t a good experience seeing as we were from out of town and it was restaurant week. A lot of places were pretty much booked and there was no accommodating us for the day.

Reservations are absolutely necessary during busy weeks such as this one (March on Washington). Cleanliness, room temp, music, volume of music, service, knowledge of server, time it took for meal to arrive, meal temp., and taste of meal were all very good.

We ordered salmon sashimi, salmon dinner plate, sausage rigatoni, peach cobbler, and champagne.

Sashimi was very fresh; so tasty. The salmon dinner has a hint of spice (less than level 1) but it nicely complimented the dish. The salmon was perhaps medium-well (I would have preferred medium), but never/the less great dish. My daughter seems to have enjoyed her sausage rigatoni & peach cobbler as she even had the crumbs!

Great experience.

We had been to The Hamilton before and wanted to go back again since it was such a great experience. It did not let down this time either!! We had a new guest accompanying us and he was thoroughly impressed. We will be back!

The food was good. Our waitress was not. The service was very slow and we constantly had to ask for the same things multiple times. When we finally ordered, it took more than an hour to get our food.
