Excellent traditional thanksgiving meal and drinks. The room was open so it was a bit noisy, but kept the environment feeling alive. Would definitely recommend.

Server was nice when ordering. Promised bread but never delivered. I ordered my steak medium rare. Came out medium well. Server never came to check. Did not provide steak knife or butter for potato. Potato was warm, but edible but not great. Flagged down manager to send steak back. My wife reports that the duck was excellent. When steak was provided, it was good. This is my third time there. Pretty disappointed. Server MIA and slow most of the night. We expected much better service and would have expected the food to have been better for the price.

My son and I were attending s show at National Theatre and wanted a pleasant place to dine before. We had made a reservation but had to call because we were stuck in traffic. They were kind enough to save our table even when we were 45 mins late for res. Food was good; I highly recommend the District wings w/mambo sauce 😊

Great time and great environment. Drinks were the best Part. The booths and ambiance overall: super cool! Enjoyed ourselves overall. VERY close to national theatre where we were seeing Mean Girls so good Location. Just typical too cool for school dc attitudes amongst service staff but worth it overall. Would go back.

The food was excellent and the service attentive when the staff was actually at the table. The time between a basic request to the staff (side of mayo or our dessert order) and the completion of the request was extremely long. We had 40 minutes before the start of a show (2 blocks away)and ordered 2 chocolate shakes. By the time they arrived we had to request to go cups or waste the shakes. Our reservations was at 5:15 and the show at 7 and we still had to hurry in the end.

Plan for a longer dinning experience

The food was wonderful but the service was lacking... we were sitting at our table for 3 hours & never even ordered desert. We got the impression that there wasn't enough wait staff. Our waitress couldn't cover all of the tables that was assigned to her. She was trying but was definitely overworked. Hopefully next time we'll have better service.

From start to finish, our brunch experience at The Hamilton was great. We had the deviled eggs, shrimp and grits and the chicken and biscuits. Everything came out in a timely manner and out every request was fulfilled- including remaking our pitcher of sangria because they included ice the first time (incorrectly). I'd love to go back for the musical brunch!

Had reservations for 6:30 and we were not seated until after 7pm. The check in process was very chaotic and unorganized. We checked with the host and he said it would be a few more minutes. It was so crowded and loud in the lobby area, everyone was having trouble hearing them when they called names. No pagers, no texting when table is ready. I have no idea how they were keeping track of anything, as there were dozens and dozens of people waiting. It was extremely loud and you could barely hear the person next to you. Food was OK, but nothing spectacular. Definitely not worth the prices.

NO stars for this place. Wouldn't honor reservation; rude staff; no manager in charge; no apologies; told to wait for at least 30 minutes to an hour and they'd "call our name"--impossible to hear/find space with at least 50+people crowding the entrance; laughed at when asked if they could text when the table was ready (had theater tickets and thus limit to how long we could wait). Gave up after a wait and ate elsewhere. NEVER again for this place!

Couldn't get seated earlier than our 6:30 reservation, and when we were, it was in a table that was right behind the main bar - so noisy and crowded, we didn't feel like we were in a nice restaurant, but in a sports bar! And the food was just a notch above pub fare. Overall - not impressed. There are better choices.

The food was excellent and the staff were just wonderful, very personable and offered helpful tips about the menu. Had a great time and am going again next week with other friends. The noise level in the bar area was really high and it was also a little hard to casually talk in the dining room due to noise level, but it did not affect the overall experience in a bad way. I recommend The Hamilton.

Nice restaurant, service was poor. Toward the end, waitress seemed a bit better. We were celebrating a special event and poor service almost destroyed the evening. The restaurant decor was good. The Hamilton Burger was great, fries were over cooked. We asked for another order which came once we had already finished eating. Nice desserts. The restaurant was busy but both hosts were polite, professional, and helpful. When you are celebrating a birthday good restaurants generally provide the birthday girl/boy with a free dessert with a candle etc. This wasn't the case here. The bathrooms were nice and clean.

The Hamilton has a great kitchen. They deal with hundreds of customers at the same time but never lose the quality of the food. It is not great for business negotiations but it is the best choice when you don't know the preferences of your guest, because they offer an extensive choice of foods, from sushi to beef, from pasta to seafood to vegetarian, and always good. I strongly recommend it for family, friends or business celebrations, when you are not in a rush to grab a bite and have enough time to enjoy the moment and seize the day.
