It is a nice place with good food. Our visit revealed a problem as we ended up waiting 40 minutes for food. We had to ask when we would get it. To their credit they offered dessert gratis.

The perfect place for a pre-theater dinner downtown. Lots of tables, plenty of space between them, well-trainer staff moves your order along without rushing you. And the food is terrific. I had short ribs and polenta on a very cold night — the perfect antidote.
Jazz is often live in one of several dining rooms, or piped in; either way, it too is terrific.

Unusual menu--something for everyone. Great find for half-off sushi until 6pm. Good wine list. HUGE restaurant, with different separate rooms big enough to be their own separate restaurant. Understandable, since this used to be a chain bookstore (Borders?) back in the day. They validate parking 2 blocks away, always a good thing downtown.

Staff seemed inexperienced. I went alone on a Sunday night. The room where I was taken was 3/4 empty, but I was seated at a table (for four). I asked if I could instead sit at a more comfortable banquette, and was told nothing was available. I asked to speak to the greeter again and pointed out that the place was mostly empty, and in any case they had sent me an a table for four, so it wouldn’t make a difference. They eventually sat me had a banquette. (The person who I originally asked didn’t know what a banquette was.) The poutine appetizer was tasty. Ordered Hanger Steak for main course: Small piece of beef sitting alone, ungarnished, in a plate. Odd presentation. Had a beer. It was flat. Overall, the food was OK, but with tax and tip I spent about $70 for one cocktail, one beer, one appetizer, and main course, and would have expected higher-quality, at that price.

My second time in 1 month during 2 separate visits. Food and ambiance were great. Service during first visit was spectacular (it was later in the eve, around 10:30 on a Monday). Service during second visit was not as good (8:30 pm on a Saturday night).

Restaurant with great ambiance. However it feels like there's a disconnect between the menu and the scene. I went for my girlfriend's birthday, and it was nice, but the food was not anything too special. It gives off the vibe of a classy American restaurant, yet there's sushi and other random food. Good restaurant that is worth trying at least once.

We were seated shortly after our reservation time. They did not have the one item on the menu I wanted - the halibut, but the filet mignon was great. The Brussie side dish is fantastic. The server split my side salad for some reason - I hadn't asked her to, and it was confusing why my salad showed up on two plates and one presented to my husband who hadn't asked for and didn't want a salad. They did replace the broccolini my husband ordered - turned out it was too spicy for him - without question. We were just a little rushed - next time we need to make sure we make a 6:00 reservation for the 8:00 show, though there were none available by the Tuesday before. Now I know to make the reservation at least a week in advanced! In general, the food was great, and the service was excellent. Caveat - it is a rather noisy environment. Sitting at a table instead of a booth seemed to help.

experienced hiccups not normal for a Clyde's establishment.....was seated and waited more than 5 minutes before any one appeared to acknowledge. After inquiry an unapologetic server said there was a mix up on table assignments......?....later I was served my sushi without and soy sauce which took a while to ask and receive. First time I have ever had a problem at this or any Clyde's. i hope you can share this with Clyde's management.

I like to visit The Hamilton for their great lunch options and late night menu. I especially enjoy 1/2 price sushi between 3 pm - 6 pm and after 11 pm. The lunch size portions of the pasta dishes are perfect and reasonably priced. Win-win!

Great place for your Washington DC power lunch. While the Old Ebbit Grill around the corner gets all the attention, the Hamilton next door is a stellar performer as well. Great concert venue in the evening but the food is excellent during the day and the seating and service are exceptional as well. Very good for those special events.

Hamilton never disappoints. A good option for dining after a day of sightseeing and museums. It was easy to get a table for an early dinner. Happy that they were able to accommodate an additional to our party. There was something for every taste. I don't eat sushi, but the visitors in my party were very pleased with the sushi options and the quality.

We love the variety of food at The Hamilton! My husband is a comfort food guy & thought the mushroom stroganoff was outstanding as an appetizer & enjoyed the meat loaf as his main course, and the best bread pudding ever for dessert! . I like to try new combinations & totally enjoyed the blackened scallops over grits with kale. The brussel sprouts with pomegranate seeds was an outstanding side dish. The sushi selections are also excellent! Service was also impeccable.

Perfect location, one block from the White House! After a morning spent sight seeing (and walking 5 miles) it was an absolute delight to walk into The Hamilton. We were early for our reservation but were shown straight to our table. Staff were friendly and polite without being over enthusiastic. Great choice of food on the menu and also a great drinks menu too. Our server was knowledgeable and was able to make recommendations. Food arrived promptly and was delicious. My only 'very' minor issue, was that the main courses were brought before we had finished the starters. I would highly recommend The Hamilton, the service, staff and food are all well worth the money
