We really enjoyed the food (great desserts) and the service. The decor is lovely. It was also quiet, which I liked, but there is apparently live music and performances here too at times, so I can't confirm it is always like this. They were doing a great job with COVID mitigation. And very nice - they were fantastically careful about allergens (we had two people allergic to different nuts).

The staff are friendly, hard working, and professional. Our food came out relatively quickly but we never felt rushed to turn the table over. The brunch menu has anything you could want and som me fun new things to try! All of which is delicious.

I went for my birthday dinner. I arrived about 10-15 minutes later than my reservation. Although it was very busy, I was seated fairly quickly. Not to mention, I was treated like a princess the entire night. & the food was delicious! I’ll definitely be returning.

Overall food was ok, pasta was overcooked
It is really not the best health safety practice as servers not covering nose with face mask
We won’t go back and don’t recommend to anyone due to not following safety guidelines and poor management in this case

Waitress was nice. She did recommend some good drinks. But towards the end we felt a bit rushed. We went for the sushi since it was recommended by several people. The sushi was on the better side. Good food for the money. The tomato salad was perfect. One one the diners thought the burrata was too stiff. Overall a nice experience.

They had a mouse! We did not stay for our meal. That was disgusting to see and we hope that they get better pest control. We will never go back.

It was quite good. Sydney was a great guide with perfect recommendations.

Beet salad was more than a meal by itself. Very fresh and tasty. Linguine was perfect, I’ll have the remaining portion later.

Enjoyable experience.

Sunday afternoon early dinner was quiet. We were seated in a private booth and received EXCELLENT service. Our waitress paid attention to our orders to ensure they came out as desired, manager checked in on our experience, and food and drinks were incredible. Highly recommend The Hamilton!

Hamilton is an “old fancy” kind of place that my husband and I love! The service is great, and the food is delicious. They have great gluten free options, which I appreciate as someone with Celiac Disease. The ambience is outstanding as well!

Our server Zach did a great job! He was attentive and professional with our party. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food and the ambience is really nice. However management and the hostess staff always find creative ways to say “NO”! “NO” to certain size reservations! “NO” to reasonable patron request! And most importantly “NO” to making decisions on the fly and being proactive! One of the managers, Tyler came to our tables to try and resolve and issue with seating our lager party of ultimately twenty, which should not have been an issue to begin with, if the hostess staff would have listen and executed, but all I heard was excuses and disingenuous apologies. The management team and the hostess staff does not do well with strategy, logistics and overall hospitality. That to me, is the downside of the Hamilton. Good food, good servers, good ambiance, but poor management and hostesses in regards to meeting and/or exceeding patron expectation. I refrained from dining the night of our party, because they ruined the mood with the issues, but I stayed to celebrate my mother’s eighty-first birthday. I will not be dining there any longer unless they rectify their issues. I have dined at the Hamilton multiple times, with no improvement. This was the proverbial, last straw.
