We had a great time during our double date. The food was tasty and the service was awesome. Sarah, our server, was very attentive and pleasant. She exchanged my rice bowl for another dish. The rice bowl was very bland. The grilled cheese cornbread with apple butter was a winner. My husband enjoyed the St. Louis gooey cake. We loved the ambiance of the venue. We definitely plan on returning one day soon.

The atmosphere is very nice; however, the noise level was deafening at times. My group of four said that the food was very tasty but we all complained that some portion of each dish was cold or just warm. We will give the restaurant another try at a later date.

We had a good time at The Hamilton. Food for good. Service was good however the server never introduced him or talked about the menu to us and our drinks did take a little longer than normal to come out. We were there for an engagement dinner and I had specified that in my reservation but it must have been over looked. Overall a good experience though. Would go back for the food.

Another case of stick with what they do well. Get meat at a steak house, swordfish in Seafood joint. I had walked past the sushi bar in this massive restaurant and found myself ordering a Poki Bowl. The fish was fresh and components just fine but at $22, value was not there. DC Poki or Poki Papa gives much more for much less. Still a big fan of Hamilton and all the venues run by this local food group, just stick to the main menu. If you do order the Poki Bowl, note in advance that you want wasabi and ginger.

we were visiting DC from North Carolina and the bus tour guide said we needed to try Hamilton's. So we did and he was correct, it was amazing. We went for Sunday brunch and it was so good. We have told all of our friends to visit when they are in town. Thanks again for a great experience.

The food was really good but the service was horrible. I’ve been before and had bad service but thought I would give it another try. We sat down and our waiter didn’t come for 10 minutes. When he finally came he said he would bring us water and never came back. The manager then came over and took our drink orders. When he came back and it was clear our waiter would not be back to check on us, we just ordered with the manager. The waiter came over after we had both food and drinks to see if everything was ok. Too little too late.

Excellent meal -- delish mezze plate and figs with burrata for appetizers, and I had an outstanding entree of grits with seared scallops and kale ribbons.

My drink was also superb -- a craft bourbon cocktail with ginger and other mixables.

Big shoutout on service, too -- two of our party were delayed thanks to heavy traffic and a failed Lyft call -- but the two of us who were there first got seated with no problems (unusual in this town), and our waiter was good enough to pause in his rushing about to take a couple of pix of the group. Bravo on all levels.

I’ve only ever been here for breakfast but it’s a good spot to get breakfast with people in town visiting and then you can all walk a short walk to the mall. Service was very good and the place is beautiful. Would recommend to anyone visiting.

The cowboy ribeye was only almost okay. Ordered med-well, the center was well done, dry, and not very tasty. Don't go there on a Friday night (1030p) unless you have 2.5 hours to spare. The servers are ridiculously busy. Dinner conversation is out, you just shout your way through because it is very loud, even outside of the bar area The brussel sprouts were burned. The drinks were the best, at $158. 🤨

Recommended as a must try when in DC and I’m glad we did. My husband and I went for dinner after a day of sight seeing. Atmosphere was energetic and business casual. Live music downstairs. Service was fast and friendly even though they were slammed. The food was wonderful especially the mashed potatoes. We both had the meatloaf and it was delicious. I don’t often order meatloaf at a restaurant but heard this was the place to have meatloaf. They were right. We finished with the gooey chocolate fudge cake and were not disappointed. Will be back next time we visit DC.

The first 5 bottles of wine we ordered were out of stock! FIVE! manager on duty came over finally with some suggestions. Never apologized just “explained” that they were transitioning to a new distributor. Dirty dishes sat on our table between courses. No one checked on us for long periods. Had to bother a bus boy for ice. Never even offered us a complimentary coffee for all of our inconveniences. However the food was delicious.
