Hamilton is a great spot to grab lunch or dinner near the White House. Given the crazy prices for food these days in DC, this is a value. It is a large, somewhat noisy place, but my friend and I were able to have a nice conversation. I had the Atlantic Salmon which was delicious, but I wish I would have asked for it medium rare rather than the chef's medium-well. The beer list seemed decent, but I can't vouch to it's depth and breadth because I honed in on the Bell's Two-Hearted Ale as soon as it was offered. Overall, it's similar to Old Ebbitt Grill , but a step-up food-wise.

A friend and I were going to the theater and she suggested we eat nearby and she chose The Hamilton. We asked for a booth once we were seated as there were several empty. No one ever got back to us regarding our request so we stayed were we were originally seated as we were limited on time. We ordered wine, which took forever to get as we were told the carafes were being washed. Our waitress finally came back and took our glasses to the bar to have them filled. We ordered shrimp as an appetizer and were brought calamari and I ordered a second glass of wine and was brought the wrong drink. My crab cake was dry and sparse for the price. Giving you two stars is being really generous!

The Hamilton is good food for a good price. We ate here twice during our week in DC. The first time it was excellent. This time both the food and service were not as good. But still worth a visit.

The food was amazing - they have a huge selection of foods plus a sushi bar. The booth we sat in had old torn leather and 'crumbs' from the previous patrons. We had to ask for it to be cleaned.
Our waitress started out enthusiastic and then something must've happened because she lost her smile- she never came back to the table after we ordered. We had to flag down the manager for another drink and again for some condiments and again for the check. Overall the food was good and the location was close to our hotel. But the service was sooo slow and unfriendly. The setting is deceiving from the outside and very outdated on the inside.

Nice atmosphere. Vibrant. Still very crowded @ 10 pm Saturday night. Seemed to affect service which was slowish. Waiter took our order for appetizers, salad/soup and entrees all at once. Appetizers were served then both salad/soup came together with the entrees. Not good as entrees sat while salad/soup eaten and not enough space on table for everything.

Food was good, in particular the sushi. However this is the second time I've been there recently and both times the service has been lacking. Both times waiters didn't put orders in correctly, left off various drinks and appetizers and generally we're inattentive. Tried to chalk up the first time as a one time thing but twice in a row has me less than enthusiastic and I won't be returning because of the poor service.

On a busy Saturday night it took our food 45 minutes to come, unapologetically I should say. Drink refills were far and few between and the food is average at best. I wo t return for dinner in a busy night again. I won’t return for dinner actually. The bar scene looks vibrant and I e had Sunday brunch with was just above average for the price. Our server was nice but clearly in the weeds.

The old world ambiance was beautiful from the wood detail to the large windows streaming in the afternoon sun. It was both stately and welcoming.

It was very busy, but after just a few minutes we were quickly seated by a very pleasant hostess to a booth by the window.

First we had a special cherry blossom drink that was not too sweet and finished with a maraschino cherry at the bottom.

We had the chicken with biscuits and gravy and eggs over easy on top. The chicken was very moist and tender and the gravy had chunks of a wonderful sausage. The eggs were done to perfection and the biscuit was large and fluffy. The portion was enough for both my husband and I.

We also had the firecracker roll and it was very good as well.

We left fully satisfied and will definitely come back if we are in the DC area again.

I have been to Hamiltons several times and as always it was great. I recommend it to people who are in town for a go to spot. The service was not as good this time she just seemed preoccupied with other things going on at the time. My party had a hamburger (great) meatloaf (great) and beef stroganoff (she said one of the best she ever had). Drinks were good and a good value for lunch.

We got our appetizer after our entrees. I also have celiacs (and told the waitress upon being seated). I ordered the gluten free beer and was instead given National Bohemian (luckily brought to the table still in the can!). Our waitress was very attentive though and provided excellent service despite the mix up from the bar and slowness in the kitchen.

Food at brunch was underwhelming. I went with 6 friends and all of them were not impressed. But it does have a good vibe, so that is nice. I do like their live music and concerts, but maybe the food isn't something worth trekking over for.

We were there for brunch after the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile and the service and staff were excellent in spite of the crowd. I’m so glad we had reservations and I can see why this place was so popular that morning. Good food and lovely atmosphere. Perfect!

I went with friends/family after the Cherry Blossom race. The doors open at 10am and we had a 10am reservation. We weren't even able to get to the hostess to check in until 10:20am because there was a line out the door. We also were not seated until 10:50am. The reservation was for 7 and we added one more when we got there. The hostess literally threw the menu's on the table and huffed away to get another chair. The waiter was visibly annoyed throughout the entire meal.

I have worked in the service industry and understand that it may have been frustrating. There was also a huge crowd. But the restaurant is less than 4 blocks from the finish line of a race with thousands of participants, they should have anticipated a huge crowd and been prepared for that crowd. Regardless, there is certainly no excuse for throwing down menu's on the table.

All of that being said, the food was wonderful. I had fried chicken and biscuits, delicious!
