The restaurant was a lovely place and very well appointed. The service was great and the waitress was quite attentive. The menu was varied and offered some wonderful selections. We thought the prices were surprisingly reasonable.
The meals were well prepared and very tasty. My wife and I had a chicken dish with broccolini and linguine and our son had a salad with grilled salmon. He said it was one of the best salmon meals he ever had!

Wanted to try it out... it was ok. Not horrible, not great... just ok. Portions were large - but subpar... ordered a steak on a bed of gnocchi. Gnocchi was mushy...

Waitress was very pleasant and provided good service. Food was lacking in spice/flavor. Looks like a nice place to get a drink but not so much for the food

Enjoyed our time at the Hamilton. My husband and I didn't love our entrees this time, but they were good. The dining room offers plenty of room for social distancing between customers. Service was very good as well.

I ordered the lobster bisque and I had multiple shells in multiple bites. It was also lacking in flavor and barely hot. It was warm. Overall the soup was horrible.

Quality of food was less then we expected and over priced. Drinks were not served as advertised and really nothing special for the occasion ( Valentines Day) . The singer was amazing .

When we arrived and asked for a table outside the hostess said they were fully booked. And yet there wasn't an option available online to specify an outdoor preference? In COVID times they should figure that out as everyone's comfort level is different.

We went there Friday, 9/4, to enjoy the happy hour music. The problem was the entertainer was so loud, we couldn’t enjoy each other’s conversation! No reason to be that loud. This type of music is meant to be enjoyed as a back drop. We didn’t specifically go to see him! Background music is what you want at happy hour!

First time there. Really enjoyed it. Limited menu. Looking forward to returning when the full menu is available. Service was excellent. Big indoor seating area, so plenty of distance between parties.

Great atmosphere, the only item that was not fabulous was the sound level of the dj that made it hard to hear our table conversation out of doors. However, the DJ was fun, good mix of music, the dinner crowd was involved with it and there was a guest singer who joined in and was very talented too.
The Waitress and Waiter working the patio dining area were very friendly & constantly moving, and always, along with the seating hostess, appearing pleasant and focused.

Great food, outdoor seating and social distancing observed. The tables are spread out and the servers wear masks. There’s a limited menu but still options to eat and drinks. I will definitely be going back.

Our server, Austin, was perfect. He was attentive but not hovering. He was engaging and very good at his job checking on our orders to ensure our dinners arrived timely. He checked back with us occasionally to see if we needed anything and when we did he ensured it was taken care of promptly
