    It took approximately 45-55 minutes to receive our food. The truffle fries were barely warm & the chicken sandwich was over cooked. Our server was good and the other portion of the order was also good. We will give The Hamilton anther try…

    The Hamilton is a very interesting restaurant, with richly paneled walls and high ceilings. It has multiple bars and dining areas. It's a very energetic place, and tends to be rather noisy. We have dined here on previous occasions and returned because of the ambiance and the good location. This time, the food was somewhat disappointing. I had their eggplant Parmesan, which was mediocre at best. It was overcooked and dried out, with little flavor. My dining companions had a pasta dish and a crab cake dinner. The crab cake was excellent, but the pasta dish was just OK. Our server was charming, but may have been assigned to too many tables, as service was slower and less attentive than might be expected. Although this experience was not great, I probably will give the place another try, chalking this up to an off night.

    It was birthday celebration. It took a while to be waited on. The eggs Benedict was over cooked and English muffin was rubbery. The stuffed French toast was not very good. And the yogurt was over priced.

    First time visiting the restaurant. Ambiance was very good. Liked the late night hours. Server was attentive, table request honored. Was not too impressed with the food. Food was dry and not hot. Maybe will take another visit and order something else on the menu. Overall experience was satisfactory.

    When we waited 30 minutes for our reservation we were casually told “oh we were calling you”- when we’d been told we’d be texted and we said we’d be standing outside. Then the response was “oh our service is spotty and the text didn’t go through”— unfortunately for you all, lying makes me CRAZY and because of the is I won’t be back. Tell the front of the house to apologize and NEVER NEVER lie. Our appetizer arrived after our salad but the food was good and the servers were pleasant.

    Food (crab cakes and pasta dish) was disappointing. Crab cakes were dry. Pasta was too salty and uninspired. Service was friendly and mostly attentive. Dining room is beautiful. Lots of potential, but kitchen needs some work.

    Shrimp Tempura Bento and Miso Soup we're both ok. Highly recommend ordering the warm bread with butter as a side starter though. It's not on the menu but was very good and helped round out the appetizers we ordered. One of my coworkers ordered the Caesar Salad which he enjoyed but thought it was a bit small. Good for size for a side salad but not enough for main entree. My other coworker ordered the Potato Gnocchi and also the Shrimp Toast. I'd say everything across the board was ok but nothing was exceptional or unique here that left us wanting more.

    Our 2nd visit to The Hamilton. Enjoyed the 1st so decided to go back for our 57th anniversary. Lovely setting, great service, and super food. Cocktails, miso soup (a little too salty for me), grilled oysters (spicy!), and halibut (perfectly seasoned and cooked), jerk chicken (very tasty). Desserts--layer cake and mint chocolate shake with creme de cacao--both wonderful. Our lovely server, Allison, took our pic with the decorated plate with the cake. To our complete shock, another patron (anonymous) saw all of this. . .and covered our tab. It would have been a perfect evening even without this generosity. We'll be back just for the fun of a lovely evening.
