It is a very convenient place! I always went there at hours where you can't really find anything good open in DC... There is a lot of choice, you can go with something more on the american side or with sushis or both, andthe food is pretty good, but not amazing either! The service is okay but a little slow...

Hamilton, along with a few others, were recommended to me by locals. Hamilton was huge, crowded and LOUD but the staff was nice and the food very good. The wine was also good and I was able to get a table off, by myself, which was a bit quieter. The location is good but if you are looking for a... More

Fab lunch spot. Great food and service. I recommend the fish tacos. Try to get a booth at the front if you can!

Four of us (two couples) decided to try The Hamilton for a pre-theater dinner. We had no notion of what to expect, except that the restaurant was part of the Clyde's chain - a well-known and respected group of venues in DC that include Clyde's, Old Ebbitt Grill, 1789 and The Tombs. Though it was early (5:30 PM), The Hamilton... More

Food to make my mother, myself, and two young boys very happy. The pasta dishes were perfectly proportioned, appetizers tasty, and sushi well-balanced. Family friendly with several kid menu options. And the elegant dining areas are enhanced by gorgeous Audubon prints and artwork. Thanks!

There was a 45 minute wait for a table, but we were asked if we'd like to sit in some upper level bar room. I had my 11 year old daughter and asked if it would be appropriate for her, and they said yes. It was fine indeed. Not the ambiance of the main dinning, but great for what we... More

In town to do the tourist thing and staying around the corner at the JW Marriott. The clerk recommended this restaurant. Service was superb -- waiter went out of his way to determine gluten content of items. Food was delicious -- well prepared and served in an appealing way. We were in town five nights and ate here three times.... More

We had a great time at the Hamilton. We really enjoyed our food and the atmosphere was excellent. Service was outstanding. Those in my group had dishes that included both steak and seafood. No complaints from anyone that evening. The desserts were also excellent.

The Hamilton has wonderfully prepared and tasty sushi and sashimi. Sushi menu is half-off from 3 pm to 6 pm daily. Definitely ask for the crusty bread to start off. Staff is very attentive and ambiance is cool. Live music (but we came at other hours).
