    Food was okay. I was excited to try the homemade rigatoni. However my rigatoni pasta dish that I ordered came with penne. I wish the waitress would have told me they were out of the homemade noodles because that would have changed my order. Place was decent but honestly nothing special. I wouldn’t go back next time I’m in town.

    I had high hopes for the experience at The Hamilton but we arrived and had to wait 10 minutes to be seated with a reservation. We got sitting at what looked like a nice table but it was next to the the dish cleaning area and it was loud with plates coming from all directions and got elbowed by waiters multiple times as they are bringing dishes - horrible experience. The food was average at best for the value. I would not recommend The Hamilton as there are many other better restaurants around. I hope the review serves as a learning to focus on guest experience.

    Hamilton does deliver good food and decent service most times. This time though the service seemed rushed and the drinks were not great. Hamilton used to be my go to but not sure anymore.

    I received the wrong entree and had to wait 20 minutes for the correct entree while my spouse had his meal. To buy time I ordered a few glasses of wine. I would have expected a thank you complimentary glass for the error. The atmosphere in the front room seemed to be for families which is where we were assigned, two adults, yet the back room which is more quiet and geared towards adults was available. This was the most disappointing dining experience we have had in years.

    I booked our reservation with friends as a pre-show dinner before going to the National Theatre. Our reservation was for 6pm, giving us ~75 minutes to dine before we’d have to walk around the corner for our show. I made note of our plans in the OpenTable reservation to make sure the restaurant knew our timeline. We arrived on time and had to wait a few minutes to be checked in by the host; we were then told we had to wait a few more minutes because they “had other parties to seat first.” Once seated, we waited some more before our server (who was very kind and capable) came to take our drink orders. Our dinner order (one entree per person, nothing fancy/complicated) wasn’t taken until after our drinks arrived, so at this point we only had about 45 minutes before we needed to leave… still plenty of time. As 7pm neared, the waiter stopped by and said he’d check on our entrees. Several other tables near us had received their food already, even those who had been seated at the same time or after us. At this point I pointed out our schedule and asked for the check to be brought out with our meal. One of us also ordered another cocktail which never appeared (fortunately we were not charged for it). Our food finally arrived at ~7:10pm. We wolfed it down quickly and paid so that we could get to the theatre on time. While our server was apologetic, at no point did management come to check on us or remedy the situation, let alone explain the reason for the delay. No compensation was given on our check. I almost couldn’t leave this review because the Hamilton cancelled the reservation AFTER we checked in. I received a confirmation of seating email from OpenTable at 6:11pm. At 6:13pm I received a second email stating that the restaurant had cancelled our reservation. It’s unclear why this happened but it’s not surprising given how many elements of the restaurant seem to be dysfunctional. I can’t say I’d consider returning.

    This was my first time dining at The Hamilton and I wasn't overly impressed. The service was somewhat slow (although they might be understaffed like a lot of restaurants right now), and the food was just average. I was expecting much more. I had the brisket sandwich and the meat was very fatty. The French fries were extremely salty. My friend had to send her chow chow back because it was cold. The restaurant itself is nice and spacious.

    For some reason most of the food we ordered was not hot and had to be sent back to the kitchen to be warmed, soup and entrees. My catfish dish, which was delicious, had to be sent back because it wasn't hot. Unfortunately, they warmed the slaw as well as the fish, which altered the taste negatively. We returned later for dessert, which were ordinary and overpriced. The peach crepes were canned peaches, tasteless and served cold. The milkshake was small for the price.

    I went with work colleagues who had flown in from across the country. We were in two groups and arrived around 5 and were pleasantly surprised that they were able to seat us together. The group varied wildly in taste and the menu accommodated everyone. I am vegetarian and found enough vegetarian and vegan options to be able to have several choices. The food was AMAZING. I had the gnocchi with black truffle and Gorgonzola and a Caesar side salad. The gnocchi melted in my mouth and was excellent. My colleague and I shared the summer rolls with peanut sauce and they were well done and extremely fresh. Several colleagues had the crab cakes and said they were the best crab cakes they’d had. Overall it was a wonderful experience.

    Everything was very good. I had to add salt and pepper to my ribeye, because I think they forgot to season it. Everything else was delicious. We had an early dinner and the service was prompt. As it got more crowded, the service declined somewhat. Cool place to dine before you go see Hamilton at the Kennedy Center.

    The Hamilton is a great olde Washington restaurant. The atmosphere is very cool and historic, and the food is very good. We started with the Burrata which was delicious. My wife had the rigatoni bolognese which she enjoyed, and I had the Potato Gnocchi Gorgonzola which was great! A couple French Press coffees capped the evening. We had a little mix-up with the wrong food being delivered to the table, but our waiter was very diligent in taking care of the situation and having our orders remade. Overall, a very nice experience for my wife's birthday!

    Came for the name, came back for the food. While on vacation, we came to the Hamilton originally for the name, but we liked the food so much we decided come back again. The sushi happy hour really got us. My kids love sushi and I'd say it's one of the best places we've had sushi. I know we will be coming back whenever we're in DC again. Not only is the food good, but the service and ambience are top notch.

    We decided to try the Hamilton, in large part because of the name. My kids are obsessed with Alexander Hamilton (thank you Lin-Manuel Miranda). The menu also had plenty of options for my family's eclectic tastes and need for gluten-free options. My one son had a cheeseburger (with gluten-free bun) and my other son had sushi. We all really enjoyed our meals and our server was on top of it. He made small talk with the kids and was right there whenever we needed something.
