Went there for dinner with my wife and two friends. I must say the food was terrific but the service was lacking to say the least. 3 plus hours for dinner took away from the ambiance and the terrific food. I had a flat iron steak with blue cheese butter cream sauce. It melted in your mouth. My wife had... More

Absolutely terrible experience! Food was not good. Have gotten much better pieces of steak cuts from walmart. Oysters from the raw bar were also not very good either, lots of shell in them. Food was brought out cold and returned to kitchen to just be brought out still cold. Food was forgotten from meal. Waitress was awful. The kicker was... More

The $48.00 steak was Not, I repeat Not Edible. If the so called "master chef" spent less time swirling and drinking his wine and a little more time paying attention to detail I would have had a much better experience. To be fair, the salad and vegetables were very good and the service ok.

On the positive side, we were seated on time and all the workers were pleasant. Our reservation time was 8:30 and we were very surprised to be informed that several of the menu items were unavailable. Even after ordering, it was necessary to make changes because the kitchen had run out of creamed spinach and one of the meat sauces.... More

We came here with about 30 people after wedding rehearsal. It is a BYOB/W so thank god the bride's family owns a liquor store! They brought 7 big bottles of Duckhorn and ordered another case of something tasty when we ripped thru those! The food was phenomenal, very delicious. Service was good.

While the food was good, the service was slow. We were however, having an enjoyable time until right after our coffee was finally served. A very rude woman, apparently a manager, came up to our table while we were still drinking our coffee and stated " you must finish and leave right away." Our reservation was for 5:30, it was...

We went to Hamilton's for our anniversary, and it was everything we could have ever wanted! We don't go out to eat very often, so we wanted this experience to be worth our while and our wallet. It was both! The service was outstanding! Our server had a very balanced approach; not too over the top, but when we asked... More

Four of us celebrated our daughter's anniversary in this wonderfully quaint cozy setting. Down a dead end street, next to the canal is this little piece of wonder hidden. It is pricey but a wonderful place. They had oysters on the 1/2 shell and I asked if the chef could cook them on the open grill with lemon and garlic..he... More

Read the "Jersey Shore" review below. ..that is how it always is here. It's been years, but decided to give it another try. They were not busy; the back room was a ghost town and the large party, with table set outside, had not arrived yet. The food is quite flavourful, and it's nice to see a slightly different menu...
