Mask Usage
We know it is no fun to wear a mask while enjoying a night out, but our staff's safety is no laughing matter.
We require all guests to wear a mask while moving about the restaurant, and when speaking to Clyde's employees.
Masks have been a hot topic, with passionate views on all sides. With our team and their families' health at stake, we must err on the side of caution. We hope you will understand and look forward to the day, hopefully soon, when we can all throw our masks in the trash.

Great meal. Nervous about sitting inside but this restaurant is taking every precaution. You MUST wear a mask at all times except when eating/drinking. We basically did not see any other patrons as we were tucked away in an awesome little booth with its own wooden doors! So cool. Food was good. Service was great (thanks Alex!).

Really bad experience. Drinks came out after food, food was incorrect, and I ate my entire meal before my wife’s meal came out. Finally once her meal came out her stake was terrible. The manager comped the drinks, and was very polite, but certainly won’t be going back. Way better restaurants in DC, if you’re a tourist— sure, if you live here — avoid at all costs.

As usual, everything was great. They definitely instituted intentional and sensible measures for COVID procedures and we were very satisfied.

We were able to sit outside and the weather was perfect. The appetizers were delicious, and the entrees were even more delicious. It was nice to get out during this pandemic and the Hamilton was the perfect place to do so

We went out to brunch yesterday but were not sure how wise it was with the Coronavirus worries. However, we were reassured by the restaurant's obvious concern for high standards of hygiene, the fact that we were place in a booth well away from other diners, and the very high level of concern shown by our waiter. The food is wonderful and we wanted to enjoy it one more time before leaving town.

Server never refilled drinks, never checked on the food order, and after dropping dessert menu he did not come back for 15 minutes. We were planning to order some, but due to his poor service all night we did not feel like spending anymore time in this restaurant.

Could have been a great experience with a different server. Disappointing and the first bad review I have ever left after on open table. As a past server I am typically understanding of slow service, but our experience here was bad on a new level!

The service and ambiance was fine, however something didn’t sit right with me from the sushi as I became ill soon after consumption.

My wife and I have been to DC twice, but we’ve probably eaten at The Hamilton 6 times. It’s that good! The beer and wine selection is great, and the quality and variety of food is great. If that wasn’t enough, they have concerts several nights a week. If you haven’t tried The Hamilton, do yourself a favor and try it out.

Hard to beat the value here. The food is as good as can be, but not overpriced like some places in the area. Excellent service as well.

My husband had the chicken bowl and he loved it. I had the sausage ragu which I didn't have high expectations for, but it ended up being delicious! We had the apple crumb pie for breakfast, which was okay, but nothing to get excited about. I would definitely come back here.

The Hamilton team - from reception to bartender to wait staff - were all top notch. So were the crab cakes and scallops! A great way to celebrate a big birthday.

This was our first time having brunch at The Hamilton and our Shrimp & Grits and Norwegian "Bennie" were very well-prepared. Our waitperson was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We could have used a little more legroom in the booth as one of our party is quite tall but otherwise the seating was very comfortable. We will definitely return!
