The service was a bit slow, and some of the dishes arrived cold. We could tell some of our food was just sitting before it was served. We were very disappointed with our experience. The manager apologized and told us that she talked to the kitchen about it. Obviously, that didn’t really salvage the experience.

The portion sizes were spectacular along with the service. The kitchen staff prepared a great and flavorful sauce. The menu selection was narrow enough to know the restaurant focused on a few dishes but also varied enough to be inviting to all palate types.

I surprisingly impressed with the food at the Hamilton. Delicious steaks and Asian food. I was especially surprised by the service, I haven’t found too many restaurants in DC with servers that actually care about their job.

Noise levels at The Hamilton are beyond deafening... the food is overpriced, and several of the dishes ordered were bizarrely prepared: over cooked dried out creamed spinach, a steak with enough bernaise for only several bites. Potato gratin that was covered in a sickly sweet sauce without a trace of cheese or browning. A gooey cake that was a plate of syrupy goo and nothing more, and an apple pie that didn’t resemble anything that any chef would call a pie... The service was excessively interfering but ok, but PLEASE don’t take away plates while others are still eating. Finally, every dish was overpriced. No problem... NOT coming back...

A mixture of amazing food (wedge salad, wings, steaks) and not so great (potatoes au gratin). Beautiful decor, but very crowded. Ask if you want a quiet table, otherwise won’t be able to hear anything.

The worst dining experience I've had in a long time. I would have given it a 1 star but my wife's crab cake and another diners rigatoni sausage ragu was good. I had the beef tartare and it was the most disgusting beef tartare that I've ever eaten. Tartare is suppose to be small cubes of steak with capers, shallots, dijon mustard, pickled onions, cherry peppers or jalapenos and egg with toast. Instead, I received a raw meatball with no flavor, no egg with pita chips. It was disgusting!

All I can say is that I won't eat here again. We were tourists looking for a good local spot for the family. This is not a family friendly restaurant despite being told otherwise. We were seated in a tight space on the other side of the bar where all families with children are obviously seated as not to intrude on the others dining. Unfortunately the space was tight and loud. I ordered two crab cakes for my meal. They came out lukewarm at best and were w/o flavor. I've had great crab cakes before and these were just blah. The accompanying chutney etc. was good though. I do have to state that my husband and children enjoyed their meals. They weren't anything special but weren't "bad". The service was good and the manager did offer to bring another crab cake (I ordered two and they brought a new second one). They did so, but even being hot, the flavor was not there. The crab didn't have a the usual distinct sweetness. It was flavorless. So I can only give this spot 3 stars at best.

I have been to The Hamilton a few times before an have always had a good time in the past. However, this time it was a very rough experience. The evening started great with my husband and I getting seated right away and our server stopped by maybe 5 minutes later, though he did seem a bit frazzled. We placed our drink order and my husband ordered a cup of chili. Everything went downhill from there. We waited 25 minutes to get our drinks and they served us one of the soups instead of the chili we ordered. Our waiter never came by our table so we had to grab another server to note the mistake. After correcting the chili order, our waiter didn't ask if we wanted to order dinner and we had to ask him if we could order food. At this point we had been there for 40 minutes and were pressed to make the show we were seeing. When our food finally came out, the portion on the large pasta was incredibly small for the value and it was very plain. The organic chicken was good until I tried to cut into the second piece, which would have required a steak knife to cut through because it was so overdone and dry. Fortunately we asked for the check as soon as our meal was served or we would have been very late to the show. It will be a long time before I consider eating at The Hamilton again and I won't be recommending it anytime soon.

Hamilton for brunch is always a great go-to! The deviled eggs are always a treat, and the pumpkin french toast is delicious. Top it off with the perfect Bloody Mary, and I'm a happy guy!

The Hamilton has been one of my favorite restaurant in D.C. since it's doors opened a few years ago. I made reservations for a friend's birthday brunch before we headed to the Warner Theatre for a show. The service was amazing, food was delicious and they managed to give us a semi-private dining space which was absolutely ideal for our brunch. The Hamilton never disappoints and with the Holiday decor up, the restaurant looked even more beautiful than usual. A great place that I highly recommend to anyone looking for a consistent and enjoyable dining experience in the heart of downtown D.C.

Disappointing. Until now... Every year we go to dinner at Hamilton's the night before the National Christmas Tree lighting when we get to DC. This time around the service was very poor, slow and not a "great" friendly customer experience. The food definitely not up to what we were use to and our overall mood when we left was disappointed.

Terrible experience there. It was a Tuesday with a moderate crowd. I ordered a Mac and cheese and orange juice for my son with our appetizers. We ate the appetizers and ordered entrees, still no mac and cheese and juice. The entrees came, still no mac and cheese. We asked about it and were told it's coming now...... Still no mac and cheese and juice. I then started to eat my crab cake entree I ordered without bacon. You guessed it! Bacon was all over the salad. Sigh. They had to do over my meal. That took about ten minutes. By the way, still no mac and cheese and orange juice at this point. My fixed meal came.. Still no mac and cheese and orange juice. We asked another server and they went to the kitchen to start it. Our original server said it slipped his mind as he's training someone else and doing other stuff. He walked to the bar and immediately brought back the orange juice. Halfway through my meal the mac and cheese finally came... 45 minutes after being ordered. That is totally totally totally unacceptable for a restaurant of that stature. Staff needs to be trained better. You guys are training people and you need training yourselves. What a mess.

We were a party of 6, ranging in age from 14 to 80. Everybody found something they wanted - the lobster roll was an especially big hit. The kitchen was accommodating for a gluten allergy -- they used a gluten free fryer for the fries. Only the steak was a bit tough for my brother-in-law. But overall, we were very happy with the after-theatre experience at the Hamilton.
