    This was my second time at this restaurant, but in a completely different seating area, by a wall of toucans. Luis was our server this evening and made the experience memorable. He was very attentive and offered wonderful recommendations for drinks, apps, and entrees. I had a delightful rose paired with a rich, buttery Japanese Hamachi for my entree. The calamari for the apps had a wonderful crunch, with a chewy inside, without being too greasy! Dessert was heavenly with a boozy cookies and cream milkshake. Will definitely be coming back!

    From start to finish, our experience at The Hamilton was top notch! Every employee that we encountered was incredibly welcoming and kind. Our server was knowledgeable and quick to check in with us. The food was DELICIOUS. We enjoyed the French toast as an appetizer to fulfill our sweet tooth needs. Then, my husband had the chicken and biscuit plate while I had the spring market salad with salmon. We cleared our plates! Cannot say enough about our experience.

    Good and service was decent without any major complaints. However, the ambience was spoilt by excessively noisy neighbouring tables. I felt that this was somewhat mitigated by an alert & pleasant waiting staff. Happy to return but I hope for a better ambience.

    It had been a while since my last visit to The Hamilton restaurant, and overall it did not disappoint. The only subtractions in my rating were noise level, cocktail prices (very high for small-ish and pretty unremarkable libations), and the size of the booth seats (so narrow!) But the food and service were great.

    My family and I did not have a good experience. The food was overcooked and it did not have flavor. Towards the end of our dinner the waiter ended up ignoring us and he was rude. This used to be one of my favorite restaurants in DC and I would recommend family and friends but not anymore. The prices and portions size were not good either. I will not be back nor will I be recommending this restaurant. I even filled out a comment and no one has reached out to me.

    Horrible greeting by a very rude hostess. I can’t believe someone would speak so obnoxiously to customers. From the time we were seated to getting our first drink and water took 22 minutes! Our waiter Daniel was horrible! I also mentioned to staff that we were not being served, they just walked away and did nothing, unbelievable. Our food was fresh and hot, no issues there. They really need to work on service.

    I have been to The Hamilton several times and generally like it but this time the food was not that great. I was quite disappointed. I had to send back the crab soup which was extremely salty, the hamburger was not cooked thoroughly, the trout dip was like a brick versus being softer so that it could spread easily and the wings were overcooked. The bill had a charge for blue cheese dressing for the wings even though the server told that there would be no additional cost for the dressing. I am sorry to be so negative but it was really a negative experience this time.

    What a great place! They seated us in a beautiful wood paneled room. Our waiter was Miles and he did a great job taking care of us! My wife had Ragu Americana Rigatoni, she said it was really good. I had the lamb chops, one was perfect and the other was undercooked. The manager addressed the issue immediately. The other three members of our party had all sorts of fine looking Sushi and said it was tasty! We finished our meal with Peanut Butter pie and Cherry Pannacotta, both delicious!!We had an excellent meal with an outstanding service!

    1) After accepting the manager's inviation to be seated by window, I ended up in dingy room. When I asked about the location, I was told there were no bad seats. 2) Unlike most fancy restaurants, the Hamilton did not provide a small fork for eating the mussels. Given that he server did not separate the underplate for the shells, I had to do so myself -- fortunately the plate was not hot. The plate full of shells remained on the table for a long time, until the manager came by and I asked him to remove it. 3) While the lamb was cooked to the proper temperature, it was hard to separate the chops from the bone. The server recommended the shallot-dijon cream sauce. Given my not being partial to mustard, I asked for the it on the side. If it did not agree with me, she woud bring the chimichurri. By the time she checked, I was almost done. 4) Instead of being sweeter than broccoli, the brocolinni was bitter. By the time the server returned so I could ask for another side, I was almost done with my meal. 5) After I finished the appetizer, I went to the bathroom for no about ten minutes. Notwithstanding that there was a water pitcher, and several glasses of ice, as well as a full cocktail on the table, the busser cleared the table. Therefore, the bare table had to be recovered with a tablecloth, and all of the drinks had to be replaced. 6) The cold brew almond halzelnut ice cream dessert was tasty but mushy. The cappucino was warm not hot. 7) There was a woman sitting nearby, and unavoidably within my field of vision. She had a bottle of Pepsi and package of Dorito's sitting on the table. After being joined by a male companion, they were making out like two kids at a high school party. 8) Though the manager had wished me a happy birthday upon my entering the restaurant, there was no acknolwedgment of the occasion with a special dessert, a candle on the mundane dessert, or even verbally by the server -- and I was alone.

    On my reservation I stated that we would be celebrating our engagement as I had just proposed that morning. No special efforts were made towards us even after telling our server that we just got engaged that day and were celebrating. Food took forever to come (even our starter bread) and none of it was worth the wait.
