Great food, had crab cakes and scallops. Great price for DC, and excellent, speedy service. We were here before going to the Kennedy center, and our waiter got us in and out quickly.

Dinner included complimentary bread and butter, and the coffee was french press. Will definitely be back!

Good service and acceptable food. I would have liked white meat chicken with the eggs and sausage gravy and my husband would have liked white meat and a bit more sausage gravy. Decent meal for a decent price. The bathrooms were very clean and all personnel friendly.

The Hamilton was lovely. The food and service were both excellent. The restaurant was a little noisy, but that was just because of the soccer fans watching the FIFA match that was on during our meal. I would definitely recommend.

We arrived for a late night date after a Hamilton performance at the Kennedy Center. I wasn’t informed upon making the reservation that they discontinue their full menu after 11pm and only offered a handful of options at this time of night. Even with the lower numbers of diners and menu options, both due to time of night, the service was slow though our server was very cordial. Unfortunately not all staff was as professional; my wife passed two employees in the hallway who were using very loud profanity.

I like the restaurant and have been here at least 3 times in the past. This time however, my steak which was supposed to be medium was rare and while the flavor was good and I did eat it... I could have done without the encrusted salt. Also, I had to ask for a steak knife which should have been brought right away with my steak. Bread was served with no bread plates and the tablecloth had stains on it. Don’t get me wrong...these were not fresh stains but stains that apparently were set in after numerous washings. I pointed the stains out to the girl that was setting up the table next to mine and she said the ‘tablecloth is fine’ and did not offer to change the cloth. Perhaps I’m making too much of it, but when I’m spending over $100 for dinner for two, I prefer not to look at food stains from someone’s previous dining experience. When stains cannot be washed out...perhaps it’s time to retire the tablecloth. In any case, it doesn’t look good.

We had a great time at the Hamilton on the Fourth of July. The only issue was the service. It seemed like first the hostess and then the waitress was overwhelmed by the amount of people they were responsible for. This made it difficult to get prompt service. The manager even stepped in at one point. I would still recommend it as I think this was more due to a staffing issue than the quality of the restaurant.

We have dined at The Hamilton several times based primarily on it’s convenient location and varied menu. We have consistently had poor service, however, and our most recent visit was the worst yet. Our waiter was slow to even bring us water. We advised him that we were pressed for time to attend an event but he made no effort to expedite his service. After we placed our order, we waited an unreasonably long time during which no food or drinks were derived and he made no effort to check on us. We finally had to get up and ask another server to find him. When he finally showed up, after another employee brought our food, he made no effort to apologize. We asked for our check and again had to wait so long that we had to track him down again just to get our check. He was indifferent and seemed overwhelmed even though the restaurant was not excessively crowded. Nice atmosphere but avoid unless you plan to bunker in for a long meal.
