Pretty restaurant, but we're still eating outdoors when we can! Our server was lovely, and as requested, she got us out of there in just a little over an hour to catch our night-time monument tour nearby.

This is a must. We always end up going even though their are tons of other places in the area. It’s guaranteed to be good. Service is professional. The atmosphere is lively. Tons of open seating and huge bar space. We try something new every...time. Haven’t been disappointed yetMore

This was our first visit to The Hamilton. It was recommended by a friend. This place is popular so reservations are recommended. I was lucky to get same-day reservations online, early in the day. The massive warm wood paneled interior is impressive. Our server, Nelson,...was very friendly and attentive. He made sure everything was to our liking. The food was very good! We started with sushi rolls. The pan-seared salmon was outstanding! Oh, and don't skip dessert, try the cheesecake with orange caramel sauce! There is even a kids menu! This restaurant is within easy walking distance of many downtown hotels.More

Great decor and ambiance. We called to make reservation after walking around DC. Recommended by a friend. They said reservation were booked for the evening and will see space availability for walk-ins. Your whole party will need to be together before seating. Lady host at...entrance that does the reservation needs an attitude adjustment. Rude and ignorant. If you don’t like to serve guests, why work there?? Our server made the dining experience better, thank god! Sushi specials decent and great. Drinks are on the pricey end, typical for downtown area.More

Stopped here for lunch and was delighted. Our server, Karxan, was exceptional. Very friendly and knew the menu and wine list very well. Went with the Reuben, which I had read previous reviews, and it did not disappoint! It was perfect. The dining room is...spectacular and filled with art and beautiful woodwork. Take the time to stroll around and enjoy the restaurant. Can't wait to come back some day. Best lunch in town.More

Very nice place on the 14th includes restaurant and a Bar. Spend couple of hours in the bar section. Food is OK and barman was friendly and could make a cocktail to meet our taste. Prices looks similar to other places around but my feeling...it that the portions are smaller.More

The only good thing about this restaurant is the atmosphere. The food is average at best. Not one of the four meals we ordered was anything special. Desert was good.

Yes there is room to stand, but not much and there was a dance floor in front of the band. Have fun!
