Overall, we liked it. Family of 4, kids 9 and 11. The ambiance felt a bit old school power lunch vibe, but the kids found it fun. Portions are huge. Overall, DC expensive but for what we got, not bad. Service was friendly, a bit chaotic as there were a number of greeters and servers. Overall, I’d recommend and dine again.

My girlfriend and I were planning a romantic dinner, but I would say the ambiance of the place doesn’t provide that. There were too many other things going on around us that made it distracting. The food was good. Calamari was awesome and wine was great, but the steak we ordered was burnt on the outside. Gooey Chocolate cake was great too. Overall experience was pretty good, but not a date-type place.

Excellent food in a terrific ambiance, marred only by the significant noise level. Beef stroganoff (a difficult dish for many restaurants, it seems) was fresh and tasty; beet/grapefruit salad likewise. Service was topnotch - attentive without hovering. Overall a great time; will be visiting again!

One of our favorite downtown restaurants. Great for pre or post meal at nearby theaters or just stopping by when in the area. Always excellent food at reasonable prices. Good selection of wines. Even when the place is very busy (usually), the kitchen produces excellent dishes in a timely manner.

Vegan burger was mushy, like mashed potatoes. I was disappointed in this but the fries and the mushrooms and spinach was great. Wine was great, however. Restaurant itself was very cute.

We had a late dinner time but the food was freshly prepared and delicious. We had crab, filet mignon, and blackened catfish, and no doggie bags were needed. The only disappointment was dessert because, being Valentine's Day, they ran out of chocolate covered strawberries. Our server brought us complimentary cookies instead with our coffee. This was our first time at the Hamilton, and it set a high standard for the many times to follow.

While the experience ended up being okay due to being taken care of by a manager, I would not recommend going here. This was not the first time I have had bad service at this restaurant. I always want to give it another try due to the convenience and regret it every time. The hostess station was rude and dismissive and then gave attitude once we were being helped by management.

The Hamilton is one of our favorite restaurants. I have been here at least 10 times with small and large parties and never had any problems with the food, service or quality. I recommended it to my friend that was coming in town for work and we met up for dinner. We had a reservation and were seated right away. We were seated, and I had no silverware. Then we waited a while for our server. Then she came by and gave us menus but no wine list. We waited 15 minutes for her to come back to get the wine list. We ordered our appetizers and the macaroni and cheese was a bit cold. It also was not served with serving spoons and spoons were left out in our silverware. The mains were delicious. We were finished our mains before our server came back to see how the food was. Then we asked for a dessert menu. She forgot about us and came back about 20 minutes later and we asked again for a dessert menu. She provided one then and we chose the apple pie. Very good on the dessert as well. We got our tab, and paid. Our server was very nice but it seemed like she had too many tables and service was not what I expected at The Hamilton.

The Hamilton was a great place to grab a bite to eat before seeing a show at the National Theater. There were plenty of options for me and my friend (who is vegetarian). Their sushi happy hour is a great deal and I will be back for that deal in the future.

I picked the Hamilton because it has GF options and was something open downtown on a weekend. I found it a bit pricey for what it offered, but also that there were many more GF choices to the menu than I thought there would be. Our server was knowledgeable and asked right at the top if we had any allergies or dietary restrictions. I ended up getting an order of eggs Benedict, which I have never eaten due to being GF. They put it on a hamburger bun, which was weird, but OK, and they didn't upcharge me. There also was a delicious GF cake-like thing called Salvadorian Sweetbread that was very good. I don't think I would go back, but it was an enjoyable experience.

Second time at the Hamilton and the second time with subpar service. This time, not only was the service bad, but some of the food was cold. The waiter could not be bothered to come to our table and find out how everything was. There are many places to go in DC for brunch, and this will no longer be one of them for me.

Made a reservations to meet friends on a Saturday night. Arrived 15 minutes early and was asked if I wanted to be seated or wait. I waited but then was seated. While we were seated and waiting for our friends to arrive the server did not greet us until about 10-15 minutes after we sat down. The server did give us water and bread. After that we did order drinks and the server was a little bit more attentive. Once the rest of our party arrived the server was good. The server did not suggest any dishes to us. The server just took our orders. The server did check on us periodically. The food was delicious as usual. Served nice and hot. Overall we had a good night at The Hamilton and will come back again.

Servers and bartenders had attitude. Yes, it’s busy, but that’s the job you signed up for. Be pleasant to your customers, do not treat them like they’re ignorant, especially if they can’t hear you over the din of happy hour.

Dinner side dishes had been sitting under the lamp for a while before they were served. They were like warm and sitting in grease. Filet was meh. I can do better on my own grill at home. Overall service was slow.

Food was good. Definitely reasonably priced. Service however was terrible. We waited 15 minutes to be greeted received drinks ordered and waited another 15 minutes to receive our check. Server stopped by once after we received drinks. Would not return just based on the service level effecting my overall experience 10 fold. If I could be guaranteed good service I would return.

This was admittedly a Saturday night when both the wait staff and kitchen would be crushed with orders, but that doesn't excuse a one hour period between the order and the arrival of food for 3 people. My "medium" steak came out well-done, and the accompanying potatoes had obviously been frozen and hastily thrown in the fryer shortly before serving.

I didn't raise the objections immediately because I didn't want to wait another 40 minutes for a replacement to come out. We told the server after the meal was done and she became very defensive. To her credit, she took the steak off the bill, but it ended up being a rather disappointing evening.

We loved the look of the place, immediately. Love the wood and vintage feel. The place was packed Saturday night and we could carry on a conversation in a normal tone of voice. There were children at some tables and we never heard them. The service was outstanding and the food was flavorful and delicious. The drinks and selection of wine was great. We will definitely recommend The Hamilton and are planning to revisit very soon.
