The Hamilton Ratings and Reviews
Hamilton never disappoints. Once you get past the people who have not made reservations, the meal is tasty and the service is timely. Came when they were serving brunch and was able to order crab cakes which were not on the menu. Wonderful. We also visited during the sushi happy hour, so I had to try one of the Hamilton signature rolls - The Blitz. Yum! We also have a milk shake each time we visit. Overall a nice meal!
My boyfriend and I decided to eat here between seeing an art exhibit and going to the loft upstairs to see some live music. We were satisfied with just about everything but the actual food. The beef tartare was very good, as was the mac and cheese, but the miso soup was incredibly salty. I ordered the scallops, which also seemed excessively salty, but the sides were almost nonexistent. My boyfriend ordered the braised lamb with polenta and the entire dish was just bland. The service, drinks, noise level and ambiance were all good and I would be willing to go again but maybe stick to appetizers and lighter fare.
Our meals were delicious. Unfortunately, the service was terrible. This is a reflection of our particular server and not of The Hamilton as a whole. She never checked on us, it took forever for us to get our orders in, food served, etc. We had a 5:15 reservation and 7:30 theater plans. Due to our server, we did not have enough time to order coffee/dessert at the end of the meal, which was disappointing. We also noticed several occasions where she was rude to other servers and even a manager, which made us uncomfortable.
Very large venue in a space formerly occupied by Garfinckel's Department Store. Service was great; we were "catching up" with each other and our waitress graciously came back three times before we were ready to order. Nice ambience, good food, central downtown location.
We were looking for a historic restaurant to take friends visiting from Italy and Australia and The Hamilton fit the bill perfectly. The Hamilton is part of the Clyde’s Restaurant Group, and it is very close to the White House. We were blown away with the stunning décor – high ceilings – Audubon bird theme throughout - lots of mahogany woodwork – art nouveau chandeliers - several bars – dining rooms – even private booths with doors. They also offer a live music area downstairs. We were there on Sunday, so we had the Brunch Menu to choose from – the prices were very reasonable. Tameeka, our server, was friendly and attentive. We were seated in the rear dining room and were surprised at how quiet it was for as large as the room was. We were able to have good conversations. We enjoyed Pecan Scones, Beef Chili, Salmon Chowder, Classic Eggs Benedict, Mezze Platter, Oyster Po Boy, and a Cheeseburger. The six of us were thrilled with our choices – the food was freshly prepared and beautifully presented. Reservations are a must here.
The food was excellent at the Hamilton and the waitress in the dining room downstairs was pretty good and fairly attentive. The calamari was probably the best I've ever tasted. Unfortunately, The Loft is another story. The band (Fast Eddie and the Slow Pokes) was outstanding but the service was terrible. The waitress was surly through the entire first set so we left in the middle of the second set. It ruined what could have been a very memorable evening.
The chicken wings were so good! They were crispy outside and tender inside. There were nine people in our party and everyone raved about their entree. We originally made the reservation for 6 and 9 people showed up. The restaurant accommodated us with seating in a quiet room. The ambiance was beautiful and I have not seen a bathroom that has little papers to open the door so that you don't have to touch a germ invested door immediately after you was your hands.
The Hamilton has become a cornerstone of my DC dining due to its comfort, quality, value and service. I've grown to know that when I dine at The Hamilton, I am going to be serviced by one of the most professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive staffs in the city.
However on this particular night, our service was so poor that we left our table mid meal to finish at the bar after our waitress went missing for 40 minutes after taking our appetizer orders, which were delivered by a server. She only returned after she was alerted by another staff member that we had ordered drinks from the bar, due to lack of table service.
As usual the staff at the bar excellent, but this entire scenario was very disruptive to our dinner.
The Hamilton has a great location, wonderful ambiance and an excellent menu. Service is always top shelf, as is the food. I've had dinner there 4 times and on a couple of occasions just met friends for drinks at the bar. Each visit was completely satisfying.
Wanted chili and small side salad. Told that wasn’t possible, that I’d have to order a full salad. So I ordered a hamburger. Was told lettuce and pickle were extra and it came with no sides. At least the pre-meal bread was tasty! However , overall, felt the options were too constrained for a full-service restaurant.
Everything was great except for timing. Food was awesome, the service was great once it started. Unfortunately, it was 15 minutes + before a server came by and it was 20 minutes before we got anything on the table other than water.
Aside from the delay, everything was great.
Not sure what was happening in the kitchen WRT plating, but my meal - for which I had substituted a side - and my husband's - which was lacking the normal condiments for sushi - were not accurate and mine had to be sent back to get the right side. Otherwise, the food was good as was the service. Surprisingly busy for an early Sunday dinnertime.
Huge. Loud. Understaffed. Over-valued. Food is ok—neither great nor awful. HOWEVER, consider skipping the restaurant and heading to Hamilton Live—the downstairs live music venue with full bar, pizza, and handhelds. Their food is surprisingly good—especially the sushi. Or, consider The Loft upstairs—an intimate live music and bar spot. They are both fantastic.
