Mask Usage
We know it is no fun to wear a mask while enjoying a night out, but our staff's safety is no laughing matter.
We require all guests to wear a mask while moving about the restaurant, and when speaking to Clyde's employees.
Masks have been a hot topic, with passionate views on all sides. With our team and their families' health at stake, we must err on the side of caution. We hope you will understand and look forward to the day, hopefully soon, when we can all throw our masks in the trash.

Support The Hamilton during COVID-19

We booked our reservations at 8:30pm but had to be out of the restaurant by 9:20pm. If we knew they were closing earlier we would have never booked this time. The expensive was too rushed and by far my worst at experience at the Hamilton. The server came to the table too many times and almost felt like he was the gatekeeper. I recommend they stop taking reservations at 7:30pm so the experience is more enjoyable. I will not return until after Covid-19.

A great place to have Sunday brunch! It's too bad that the pandemic has limited business for The Hamilton and other fine restaurants. The food and drinks were excellent. The service attentive. Most of all, the staff was very mindful of social distancing regulations and made us feel safe while we were dining. I hope they can sustain themselves financially.

I was happy to be able to eat indoors (during COVID) but disappointed with the food. My filet was ordered medium rare as is customary for that cut of meat. But it came overcooked and barely warm. The compound butter on top barely melted. The other problem we had was with our drinks. We ordered a non-alcoholic drink they had on their menu, a no-no Negroni. They served a real Negroni. If someone orders a non-alcoholic drink it’s for a reason! Very careless and such a lack of attention to detail but both the kitchen and bartender.

P.S. I did not send my filet back to the kitchen to have it properly prepared because having worked in restaurants myself, I don’t trust kitchens/servers not to tamper with my food. That’s not to say it would happen at this restaurant.

My friends and I frequently go to the Hamilton. Normally for happy hours a few times a month. I also have been going there for my birthday for the last three years and I was ecstatic that I got to go there again this year. Their staff is amazing and all COVID procedures/practices were very on point. Highly recommend!

The Hamilton is one of my new favorite restaurants. I literally have nothing bad to say about this place except for that lamp on our table had to go lol. From beginning to end I enjoyed my brunch experience. The calamari and firecracker shrimp appetizers were oh so appetizing. The cocktails gave me a good buzz and the Chicken Biscuit with Eggs and Gravy. I could eat for breakfast every other day.
Thank you for a great experience Hamilton.

Great meal. Nervous about sitting inside but this restaurant is taking every precaution. You MUST wear a mask at all times except when eating/drinking. We basically did not see any other patrons as we were tucked away in an awesome little booth with its own wooden doors! So cool. Food was good. Service was great (thanks Alex!).

Really bad experience. Drinks came out after food, food was incorrect, and I ate my entire meal before my wife’s meal came out. Finally once her meal came out her stake was terrible. The manager comped the drinks, and was very polite, but certainly won’t be going back. Way better restaurants in DC, if you’re a tourist— sure, if you live here — avoid at all costs.

We went out to brunch yesterday but were not sure how wise it was with the Coronavirus worries. However, we were reassured by the restaurant's obvious concern for high standards of hygiene, the fact that we were place in a booth well away from other diners, and the very high level of concern shown by our waiter. The food is wonderful and we wanted to enjoy it one more time before leaving town.

Server never refilled drinks, never checked on the food order, and after dropping dessert menu he did not come back for 15 minutes. We were planning to order some, but due to his poor service all night we did not feel like spending anymore time in this restaurant.

Could have been a great experience with a different server. Disappointing and the first bad review I have ever left after on open table. As a past server I am typically understanding of slow service, but our experience here was bad on a new level!

My wife and I have been to DC twice, but we’ve probably eaten at The Hamilton 6 times. It’s that good! The beer and wine selection is great, and the quality and variety of food is great. If that wasn’t enough, they have concerts several nights a week. If you haven’t tried The Hamilton, do yourself a favor and try it out.

My husband had the chicken bowl and he loved it. I had the sausage ragu which I didn't have high expectations for, but it ended up being delicious! We had the apple crumb pie for breakfast, which was okay, but nothing to get excited about. I would definitely come back here.
