I would highly recommend this restaurant as not too expensive but very inventive with the dishes. Everything from sushi to burgers to the best rib eye the hubby has had in quite a while. I loved the app of burrata with beets. YUMMY!! Will dine here again and again!

Had a business lunch here that was fantastic. Great food and service and the location is great for downtown business. The place is huge so plenty of seating options.

We had planned to visit The Hamilton in hopes of having the Best Sushi in DC. The Sushi was average, but the brunch was great. Everyone at our table enjoyed their food.

I'm rating this place as 'average' due to the sad state of the restrooms. The food was great, the service was amazing and friendly but the restrooms were atrocious. Totally out of sync with the rest of the place. I was in early on a Sunday for brunch so I don't see how they got so bad so quickly unless... More

We had a great meal. The atmosphere was excellent. Unfortunately, we just got a bad waiter. We had to share a knife because he never checked on us after our dinner was served. Zero personality and absent. Bummed on that but the ribeye and donuts were excellent!!

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast here today. The wait staff was very attentive, food was delicious and the prices for downtown DC were excellent. Very lovely interior design. The milkshakes were wonderful, along with the crab quiche special, omelettes, steak and eggs, chicken and biscuits and bananas foster french toast. Great prices and great food! Highly recommend!

The restaurant is very large and looks to hold a lot of guests. My friend and I stumbled upon this location while walking to the White House and thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed. Service was great and the food was delicious. Atmosphere overall was great and we are glad we stopped.

So went here for first time on a Sunday night. I would definitely come back, but not get the crab cake which was very disappointing. It just tastes like oily crustaceans, no seasoning! And this is the Chesapeake Bay Area... still, the appetizers (burratta with beets, and potato-filled tots) were great, as was the boozy milkshake (you can't go wrong... More

Stopped in for breakfast on a early Sunday morning in February. It was about 0930 and pretty quite but the place is huge. Have been here for dinner and quite the difference with activity and noise level, very quite for breakfast. Also expensive but then if you want a relaxing slow paced breakfast with good food then this is the... More
