    The portions have been getting smaller, but the prices have been going up. My steak salad looked to have been missing half the salad. Service was very friendly, but the check-ins were so quick, didn’t have time to make requests.

    I only gave 4 stars because the service was a little on the slower side this time. While it was busy, it was not excessively busy. That said, The Hamilton is consistently a 5-star restaurant. Quality service and food.

    My husband and I eat at The Hamilton several times a year. We have always been pleased with our experience, but last night it was disappointing. We waited for our drink order to arrive for 20 minutes, and when the waiter appeared with them, he did not apologize for the delay. (Our food did come in a timely fashion.) Not sure if our waiter was negligent, or whether the restaurant was understaffed.

    Our waitress was very pleasant and interacted with us sociably. My daughters steak came out cold and had to be remade while I continued to eat my meal. They brought her a new steak which was nice. The steaks were not seasoned at all. I understand they offered sauce toppings and would not normally season as it might compete with the sauce, but we chose no sauce and the person cooked the steaks should have seasoned them. My only real complaint is that no one pre-bussed our table. We were full, had set our silverware together on our plates and even moved our plates to the edge of the table, to no avail. Our waitress even looked at the table and I thought she was dropping something and then headed over. But, alas, no. We did not see her for over 15 mins. We saw other waitstaff come by and even a host and there was one gentleman cleaning and setting other tables for the restaurant but apparently he was only allowed to clean and set for new arrivals. Our waitress finally came by to ask if we would like dessert. (No, of course). We asked for the check and she did at that point pick up the used plates and side dishes. I have waited tables for years and if I was at a casual, diner or restaurant, I get that. And if she had been busy I would have understood that. However, this is a very popular, dressy/casual restaurant that required reservations, so I expected much better. We started off strong but ultimately, it was just okay.

    We always go to the Hamilton during our annual trips to DC, and the food is always excellent. We sat outside this time, and were very disappointed with what seemed to be “street vendors” banging drums loudly with echoes bouncing in multiple directions. We actually had difficulty communicating at our table for over 45 minutes. No more outside for us. I only hope your management can take appropriate action to avoid future complaints. Thank you

    Food was wonderful - the milkshakes were incredible! Service however, was not great. They said didn’t have our reservation, but we received an email from OpenTable saying we had been checked in after we were finally seated. Restaurant was far from busy, but it took almost an hour to finally get our food, and it was half an hour from the time we ordered dessert to the time we received it.

    Rough night. Service struggled, food came out cold and incorrect, and they couldn't keep up with drinks. They did credit a couple dishes but management definitely was not on top of things. We have been there before and it was great, so we will try again.

    Service took way too long. We were there 20 minutes before the server asked if we wanted anything other than water. We told the server that we had an appt and waited another 20 minutes before we got our check. Actually had to flag down someone else to get our server. Food was good. Restaurant was nice and clean. But the service could be better.

    The Hamilton boasts an ambitious menu including sushi. The yellowtail carpaccio was very good; I would consider it sashimi as it was thick slices with a light citrus sauce. Our server was pleasant and helpful. The bread is good. Our entrees, steak, were ok. I think there are better options in DC.

    The Hamilton is my go-to spot when I have visitors from out of town for three main reasons. One: The food is consistently delicious and there is something on the menu for all types of cravings. Two: The location is fun for exploring before or after you dine! Three: The ambience inside the restaurant is lively, yet stately!

    We had just gone to Old Ebbitt Grill the night before so we decided to get sushi at The Hamilton for lunch. Umm so glad we did! The sea salt edamame was delicious, and all 3 sushi rolls we tried had great flavor combinations. We planned to come back during sushi happy hour, but we ran out of time. We will definitely be back during our next visit, though!
