I was not impress with the taste of the food, the New York strip was blah, and the linguini was tasteless the only bright spot was our waitress!

We were seated quickly. Placed our order and received our food in reasonable amount of time. My corn beef sandwich was good but could not get sweet potato fries since they were out of those. My wife got salmon salad, in which the salad was very tasty but salmon was vastly undercooked. We could not tell the waitress since she did not check on us until giving us the bill. We told her why the salmon was not eaten but really didn’t care, and wasn’t friendly overall, maybe just had a bad day.

With a huge caveat... this is not necessarily the place you go for a standout brunch - except for the service, which was excellent- but it’ll do.

When we arrived, I check in with the hostess. She said it would be a few minutes while she checked for our table. We stepped to the side to let others check in. 20 mins passed (I heard people check in that had reservations and some that did not- who were seated before us, but I continued to wait) finally she looked at me and said, what was the name again and how many? It was my daughters 17th birthday and we had show tickets to Fords Theater- so we ended up being a bit rushed at the end. Our server did bring out a goo cake for her. The food was good, the wine was overpriced. I looked up the bottle we ordered and it costs around $24 - the restaurant charged $60... I would think $44-50 would have been more reasonable upcharge.

Based on the reviews we’d read, we expected food that was better prepared. The Cesar salad was tasteless, the tempura shrimp was heavy and greasy. The menu was limited and the food was not prepared well. Our waitress, however, was delightful!

I've been here once before and very much enjoyed my pre-theatre entree and cocktail. On this visit I was underwhelmed with the food (3 sushi rolls during 1/2 price 3p-6p special) which was good, but nothing special, and my martini, while pretty good, only filled half the glass. I think it's ridiculous to pay $13.50 for basically a shot, and the waiter didn't think there was anything wrong with this. Additionally, we made a reservation and still waited 10mins to be seated.

Used to view The Hamilton as a backup if I couldn’t get a reservation at The Old Ebbitt. But it’s now become a destination restaurant all its own. Great food, drinks, service. Held a booth for me on a crowded evening; would go back just out of gratitude for that.

Food was good but probably the worst service I have had in DC. I think the server would have rather been anywhere than where she was. Ruined our first experience dining here. We will not go back
