I visit the Hamilton frequently, it is my "go to" place for out of town guests given its location is great. But the food is great, too. I've never been disappointed. The sushi is good, and great if you can get there for happy hour...More

Beautiful and elegant restaurant close to the Hite house. We just stopped in for lunch and the meal was delicious. The waitress was also very attentive. She anticipated our needs before we even asked.

We came here because it was right across the street from our hotel and we wish we hadn't waited until our last day in DC to try it! We sat at the bar, had a burger, rigatoni and fisherman's soup. All were delicious. The burger...More
