This place was recommended by a local and it exceeded every possible expectation. The food was flat-out yummy, and our server, Chris, was excellent. He served us with a smile and always made sure my Diet Coke glass was full. We will definitely eat there again when we return to D.C. A++++

I have heard wonderful things about The Hamilton. I enjoyed my meal but it wasn't that exciting. I had the vegetable soup and the Steak Salad. The soup was great but the salad was pretty blah. Just had higher expectations after all I had heard.

This hotel was a real gem. It's beautiful and clean. The staff are professional, friendly, and really helpful. First day ice-rain, and I had a 7-block walk to conference. Before I even looked around to ask, the concierge brought a big umbrella over to me to use for the day! Apples, oranges, and fruit-infused water are available 24/7 in the... More

This was our second choice restaurant for the evening, after finding that the first had over an hour wait for a party of two. At the Hamilton we were seated immediately and had a very enjoyable meal. I had the short rib pasta, which I was happy to see had the option of a smaller portion, so I did not... More

Arrived in Washington to attend the Caps game with time to spare. We decided The Hamilton was the place to start and had lunch at the back bar with Jake (there are two wonderful bars). The food was great and even though the bar was packed, we were treated as if we were the only customers he had. We had... More

Excellent -- Casey, our server -- FANTASTIC -- everything delish -- several bars, sushi, extensive wine selection. I was thrilled with the vegetarian options, and my children were happy with a burger.

RAW-I've never posted a negative review of a restaurant on YELP before but after tonight's experience at Hamilton I was so angry here we are. My wife ordered the "Hamilton Burger" medium rare. It arrived raw, literally the burger was raw, so raw, that the meat stuck to the knife when she cut it. The waiter acknowledged the burger was... More

My wife and I ate at The Hamilton because it was close to our hotel. It ended up being a good decision. My wife ordered the sushi (it was sushi happy hour from 3-6) and I ordered the half-chicken. It took about 15 minutes for our orders to arrive. While waiting for our food the server brought out bread and... More
