Excellent meal -- delish mezze plate and figs with burrata for appetizers, and I had an outstanding entree of grits with seared scallops and kale ribbons.

My drink was also superb -- a craft bourbon cocktail with ginger and other mixables.

Big shoutout on service, too -- two of our party were delayed thanks to heavy traffic and a failed Lyft call -- but the two of us who were there first got seated with no problems (unusual in this town), and our waiter was good enough to pause in his rushing about to take a couple of pix of the group. Bravo on all levels.

I’ve only ever been here for breakfast but it’s a good spot to get breakfast with people in town visiting and then you can all walk a short walk to the mall. Service was very good and the place is beautiful. Would recommend to anyone visiting.

The cowboy ribeye was only almost okay. Ordered med-well, the center was well done, dry, and not very tasty. Don't go there on a Friday night (1030p) unless you have 2.5 hours to spare. The servers are ridiculously busy. Dinner conversation is out, you just shout your way through because it is very loud, even outside of the bar area The brussel sprouts were burned. The drinks were the best, at $158. 🤨

Recommended as a must try when in DC and I’m glad we did. My husband and I went for dinner after a day of sight seeing. Atmosphere was energetic and business casual. Live music downstairs. Service was fast and friendly even though they were slammed. The food was wonderful especially the mashed potatoes. We both had the meatloaf and it was delicious. I don’t often order meatloaf at a restaurant but heard this was the place to have meatloaf. They were right. We finished with the gooey chocolate fudge cake and were not disappointed. Will be back next time we visit DC.

The service was just ok. Our waitress started our very attentive and the food came quickly but we waited a long time after our plates were cleared for her to returns and when she did she brought our check with no offer of dessert or coffee or more drinks. That was a big disappointment.

The first 5 bottles of wine we ordered were out of stock! FIVE! manager on duty came over finally with some suggestions. Never apologized just “explained” that they were transitioning to a new distributor. Dirty dishes sat on our table between courses. No one checked on us for long periods. Had to bother a bus boy for ice. Never even offered us a complimentary coffee for all of our inconveniences. However the food was delicious.

We were seated for Sunday Brunch and waited 15 minutes and our server never came to the table. We were on tight time due to flying out that afternoon and we could no longer wait. I’m not sure the staff wouldn’t even notice that we were gone!

Server was rude, twice. All the food was barely warm and the Mac and cheese was cold. By the time we finished eating our food we inquired about the Mac and cheese and she gave us an attitude like, it coming and I can’t control that. It did come and it was good but... basically a 3 star experience.

So on the course of our 2 week vacation we dined at the Hamilton 3 separate times. The 2 times we dined during lunch (once for the sushi happy hour, once without) they were excellent. The time we dined for dinner it was quite loud, even while seated in a booth. They did have a live band playing downstairs in another area but it was still very loud in the dining areas. The food was delicious on all 3 occasions and the service was still great. I highly recommend having cocktails (at any hour), sushi happy hour and a boozy milkshake as a dessert, drink or if you just like that sort of thing.

Service was well below average. Water was served on the warm side and did not get refilled until close to the end of our dinner. We also got somenone else's check and had to chase our server to get the correct one... Hard to recommend given the food was just OK but pricey.

The food here was excellent, and the overall ambiance was very nice - it's a great spot for if you want a nice sit down dinner in a great location in DC, but don't want to break the bank. My only complaint was that the service was very slow - our waiter didn't even come over until we had been sitting for 30 minutes. But someone else (a manager I believe), came over and apologized and took our order himself so that made up for it some - overall still a nice experience

Ive been to Hamilton several times and have never been more disappointed. The food was decent (my avocado toast was terrible - in taste & presentation, but everyone else’s was good - thus the 3 stars), but the service was pretty bad. Our server took forever to take our order (we sat for 40 minutes before she came to take our order) and then was very slow throughout our time there. We’ve never experienced this before at the Hamilton, so I’m hestitate in giving it a lower rating (hoping it’s a one time thing), but it will be quite some time before we go back, if ever.

Overall we enjoyed our experience. The shrimp tempura appetizer was delicious. The salmon bento box was large and filing. My party was pleased with their meals. I was excited they had adult milk shakes but we decided to share a couple of desserts instead. The lemon cheesecake was light but a little too light on the lemon. The bread pudding was outstanding!

My husband ordered the New York strip steak and usually when we have had steak at other restaurants there is a char on it and unfortunately this did not. Our waitress was ok. We brought our own wine she poured it once when she opened it and throughout dinner we poured it ourselves. The filet was good as well as the octopus. I did ordered an after dinner drink a Sauterne and unfortunately it was not available. My husband and I do not intend to come back to this restaurant
