Really nice place for having a dinner. We lived in JW Marriott, it’s in a great location (near the hotel and the White House). The district wings are amazing, you have to try it! The gooey cake is really nice for dessert too.

We have been to the Hamilton a few times for concerts/performances but this was our first time just for food and drinks. The food was nothing to rave about, my fish and chips were average and so was my partner’s burger and nothing exceptional. The cornbread grilled cheese was flavorful but over rated, it is something you might expect to find in a roadside cafe with a milk shake. It was a crowded Friday evening and service overall was friendly but spotty and missed the mark on many occasions—had to remind the server thrice about the dessert/shakes menu and wait almost 20 mins for it (skipped over ordering the shake since i was looking to have it as an appetizer and by the time the menu arrived, it was time for our main course); for some strange reason the bread basket arrived at all tables except ours—when the table next to ours was cleaned and taken by new folks for whom the bread basket arrived, sheepishly the server asked us if “we wanted some”, this was when we’d finished our appetizers and digging into our main course. Will we visit again? Maybe for a business meal or a concert since it is a convenient meeting point in the heart of the city but definitely mot for a date or a special occasion.

Food was yummy! I had the crab cake for dinner & lemon cheesecake for dessert.
Decent variety on kid's menu.
We had a 5:15pm reservation and the place was packed (resturant and bar)and LOUD by the time we left with a bevy of people waiting for tablez.
I wouldn't even try going at prime eating time without a reservation, especially if you have kids... you will be waiting for a table!

My wife and I decided to go to The Hamilton based on recommendations of friends primarily of the District Wings appetizer. I was not impressed, although the Mumbo sauce was very tasty. I could not see returning as the food was just average.

Good food and good price.. steak came out perfectly medium rare and crusty chewy warm bread was ❤️❤️❤️ but service was slowest I have ever experienced before.
Can’t find our waitress .. empty glasses for good 30 min frustrating.
Had to asked for second basket of bread but took another 15 min after we waited 30 min to find our waitress.
Food took 1 hr to come out.
Extremely dissatisfied with service.

Third visit to this establishment on my trips to the capital so that says it all. Pretty space with a good vibe. Good cocktail menu and a lively bar scene. Hamilton's Mule was very good. Maybe a touch sweet so probably one is good for an aperitif. Had the spicy tuna roll for a starter and it was excellent. All in our party were pleased with their entrees. Had the rice bowl and I was not disappointed. An unusual mix that worked very well. Will be back next time in DC.

I will always rave about the Hamilton. I visit here for lunch dates with my sister when I get to see her. We love the sushi but have had other items on the menu. The manager was beyond pleasant and accommodating this past visit and I can’t be grateful enough because it’s not something you see often nowadays.

I chose the Hamilton as part of a themed evening which culminated in seeing the Broadway Tour company of Hamilton at the Kennedy Center. I was absolutely blown away by the experience at the Hamilton restaurant!

The staff was extremely friendly and prompt with providing knowledgeable service. I don’t think our water glasses were ever empty for more than a couple seconds before someone would pop by and refill them for us even though the bottle was there for us to do so if we choose to as well.

Our waitress was very adept at the explaining the specials in a manner that wasn’t overwhelming. The bread and butter plate for the table was delicious, especially considering it’s the simplest thing you’ll receive.

I personally ordered the crab cake dinner which was beyond delectable. It was perfectly cooked and paired well with the fingerling potatoes and corn sides.

My family members ordered a seasonal blackberries & peach salad with chicken, fish & chips, and the rice bowl. All three ate everything provided and reported it was equally as scrumptious as my meal.

The location was fantastic and has ample parking garage options for those driving into the city. It was also an easy drive from there to the Kennedy Center. My husband and I walked from our hotel (remember I mentioned the Hamilton theme? We stayed at the Hamilton hotel about three blocks away) and it was an easy, not crazy walk despite there being plenty of other people around.

Oh, and the venue is actually quite large! I hadn’t realized it encompasses several large rooms and has ample space for even the largest of group dinners.

Overall, I highly recommend the Hamilton to everyone looking to have a fantastic meal in a friendly establishment.

I always make it a point to have dinner at the Hamilton when I’m in DC. The food is off the charts; last night I had the catfish jambalaya and the St. Louis gooey cake and thoroughly enjoyed both. We were very disappointed with our service last night unfortunately. Maybe a staffing issue, maybe an inexperienced server, either way the girl clearly needed a hand and our evening suffered for it.

This has been our favorite place in DC. The waitress was amazing, friendly and had great recommendations. The thing I LOVE about this restaurant was their kids menu— they actually had real items, not just chicken fingers and bad pizza. Their regular menu was amazing too— I can’t wait to come back and try something else.

We'd been to the bar a long while ago, and this visit was our first dinner there. Had a great experience, very much in line with all the other wonderful restaurants in the same group. We each enjoyed different starters, entrees and desserts. Food was creative without being fussy (but still some great standards on the menu too), fresh and delicious. Menu had a wide variety which pleased everyone in the group. Will definitely return again.

A gem, catty corner from the Old Ebbitt and across the street from the Willard Hotel. Stands up well to those established competitors, with a menu that ranges from burger/comfort food to sushi. Relatively new, but feels like it has been there forever. Suits tourists and native Washingtonians alike.
