    It was a really nice experience other than the table that was extremely loud. I didn’t see any one try to talk to them about bringing the noise level down. That was the only disappointing part.

    The food was delicious. I had the Steak Frites and the shallot sauce was amazing. The service was a bit slow and we had to wait nearly 20 minutes for change from our bill.

    Rough night. Service struggled, food came out cold and incorrect, and they couldn't keep up with drinks. They did credit a couple dishes but management definitely was not on top of things. We have been there before and it was great, so we will try again.

    Service took way too long. We were there 20 minutes before the server asked if we wanted anything other than water. We told the server that we had an appt and waited another 20 minutes before we got our check. Actually had to flag down someone else to get our server. Food was good. Restaurant was nice and clean. But the service could be better.

    The Hamilton boasts an ambitious menu including sushi. The yellowtail carpaccio was very good; I would consider it sashimi as it was thick slices with a light citrus sauce. Our server was pleasant and helpful. The bread is good. Our entrees, steak, were ok. I think there are better options in DC.

    The Hamilton is my go-to spot when I have visitors from out of town for three main reasons. One: The food is consistently delicious and there is something on the menu for all types of cravings. Two: The location is fun for exploring before or after you dine! Three: The ambience inside the restaurant is lively, yet stately!

    We had just gone to Old Ebbitt Grill the night before so we decided to get sushi at The Hamilton for lunch. Umm so glad we did! The sea salt edamame was delicious, and all 3 sushi rolls we tried had great flavor combinations. We planned to come back during sushi happy hour, but we ran out of time. We will definitely be back during our next visit, though!

    Received dirty glass after dirty glass. When me and my partner sat down at our table we were greeted by two very dirty glasses. In addition both of the bourbons I ordered came in glasses with sticky spots. In addition my partner was given a dirty napkin with a large sauce stain on the underside did not appear to have been laundered.

    The Hamilton is more about experience than food in my opinion. It's a massive restaurant, so that may be why I felt the food was just ok for what we paid. There wasn't anything wrong with it, but it was just average tasting. I think it's probably a good option if you are going to a play and need something convenient, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go back just to eat there. The 4 of us had the potato wrapped flounder, shrimp and grits, filet, and steak and frites. Everything was just ok and our bill was $300 each had one cocktail and one app.

    Friendly service, but VERY, VERY slow; waited almost 30 min for main course and then 30 min for dessert. Server stopped by once to check on us, but was never around to refill soft drinks or water bottle, so glasses were often empty, especially since the iced tea glasses were very small. We had to ask multiple servers to find our server and send her over.

    It was supposed to be a celebration of two birthdays with our daughter and son-in-law visiting from Scottsdale Arizona. We sat at our table for an eternity before the wait staff brought water and a bit longer for the gentleman to take a drink water. Then it was a good bit longer before the drinks appeared. We ordered promptly, and three of the orders came out correctly. One did not, and had to go back to the kitchen to be remanufactured. It just wasn’t the best experience. Which was disappointing, because we had had dinner there the night before and it was quite good with a brilliantly attentive server. The food at the Hamilton is nothing special, which is too bad because other restaurants in this group are special. They need to pull up their socks and go for some consistent good food and proper attention paid to the diner.

    Everything about the experience was wonderful! In town for a short visit. Our server, Ziti,was PHENOMENAL. She made sure we were able to be seated outdoors, had a command and was fully knowledgeable of the menu making great recommendations for both food and drink. Every restaurant should have a Ziti.

    If you go, I’d recommend the gooey cake and the Hamilton burger. We also had the chipotle bean burger and fried calamari, which were subpar. The fries also tasted stale and were nothing to write home about. But overall positive experience because of the delicious Hamilton burger and gooey cake!
