The Hamilton is a lovely restaurant with plenty of seating and an extensive menu. The food was good and the service was even better! Erica was such a wonderful server I plan to go back again and again. She is a true testament to the fact that they know what they're doing over there! The portion sizes were good, the... More

Great service and very tasty food! Didn't have to wait long for food and drinks at all and our waiter (casey) was very nice.

The Hamilton was just what we were looking for during a business trip. Good food, great service, and good prices to match.

Besides - the Hamilton Mule as a great cocktail to start the night out, the crab cake sandwich and soup was great. Good service, lovely ambiance, reasonable prices!

I went to this restaurant for dinner on Friday so it was super crowded and noisy. Service was very good but i will not go back as it was way too busy and the waiting at the front desk was not so organized well. Food was fine though.

After a great turkey dinner and leftovers twice, I needed a good piece of beef! Love the atmosphere, big but cozy feeling restaurant and a very diverse menu! I ordered the dry aged ribeye and it was delicious and cooked to medium perfectly. They have an extensive sushi menu too. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for... More

We were looking for a restaurant that would serve scallops and the Hamilton came up. It turned out to be one of the best meals I've had in years. We had the pork belly and the burrata appetizers, and the pork chop and the scallops for main courses. Dessert was the gingerbread cake. We also had two cappuccinos and a... More

This place screams Washington. Had a few burgers for lunch, and they were solid. Fries good too. Service pretty poor overall.

Visited with a large business group for dinner. The server was great - she handled the table of twenty with good humor and quick service. She did not mind breaking up the bill into twenty separate checks, and managed quite well to keep track of us as we moved to different seats during the meal. Honestly, I don't know how... More
