    First time I came here was 8 years ago, and I knew I was going to come back. One of my favorite restaurants ever! And it didn't disappoint when I came back (2 times) this trip!

    Old Ebbitt doesn't disappoint for service and ambience - old DC politico haunt but mostly full of tourist families now. The food was good but not outstanding. My fresh oysters were plump and fresh and briny. My companions steak was cooked to order, rare. My trout was over-crusted with a heavy coating, leaving not much room for the fish itself to shine - and the fish was just this side of overcooked. Given the history of the place it's worth a stop. Just not good enough to warrant 5 stars.

    Every dish we had was absolutely delicious. The ingredients are so fresh and the spices are so tasty that you really appreciate how their food is made. The ambience is very fun and beautiful. The noise level started out OK and then got a little bit loud about an hour after we were there. But we are extra sensitive to noise. I would highly recommend this restaurant for the quality of food, the kindness of the wait staff & the host and the ambience.

    From start to finish, our experience at The Hamilton was top notch! Every employee that we encountered was incredibly welcoming and kind. Our server was knowledgeable and quick to check in with us. The food was DELICIOUS. We enjoyed the French toast as an appetizer to fulfill our sweet tooth needs. Then, my husband had the chicken and biscuit plate while I had the spring market salad with salmon. We cleared our plates! Cannot say enough about our experience.

    I always dine at Filomena’s when in DC. It is one of my favorite restaurants. I had the Funghi di Spinaci appetizer with gin martinis to start. For dinner I ordered the Agnolotti Alla Carbonara. The waiter provided a white wine to pair. I also very much enjoy the warm ambiance. The entire experience was entirely enjoyable, as usual. I wholeheartedly recommend Filomena’s.
