“used to be a trendy spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

when Hamilton house openned, it used to be a trendy spot that attracted quite few Shanghai cool crowd. The menu always very simple to choose, but if u been few times there are nothing new.
Unfortunately the last two years the quality of food has drop and now quite difficult with such a compeitive market in Shanghai.It was disapointed my last visit!

Good place for larger group arrangements. Fun toilet, watch out... The food is average - good, but nothing special.

“Absolute waste of time and money. Is this a restaurant training school?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

Service - terrible - slow and few unattentive staff
Food - presentation was non-existent
Taste - The french would be ashamed. Canned sauce, cold snails, over cooked lemon tart, rubber chicken.

I do not see how this restaurant gets good reviews unless it is for the decor. Save your money and if you are that desparate for 'western' food I suggest just go to the Blue Frogg chain.
