    Food is not bad but not great. Portions are on the small side. The design of the room is such that it doesn’t take a lot of people in there for it to get loud and you have to strain to hear your date

    Lamb shank was unreal - I really appreciated that the cook brought our plates to us. That is true pride in one's work. The young man was so nice too. Our server was always accommodating and checked in often. She wasn't too pushy and didn't give off the "I'm being extra nice for a nice tip" impression. Already recommended this place to people. I heard of your restaurant via word of mouth from a local.

    I got the chicken Cesar salad. Chicken was a bit dry but overall, it was good. Service was good, but sometimes we were left unattended for long periods. The restaurant was VERY loud which made for a fun vibe but it was hard to hear my friends. But Hemmingways is always good value and a great time. I definitely will be back!

    Our server, Lulay, was terrific! The food was okay - the Chicken Souvlaki was tasty, but the salad was awash in oily dressing that didn't have any flavour. I had asked for a bit more salad since I wasn't having rice and there wasn't any more salad than usual.

    The food was bleh but, the ambience was good. The grilled salmon salad had 2 microscopic bits of mango and about half a strawberry on it. The 4 bites of salmon were bland and dry. The wraps/fries/more traditional pub fare was good. Staff was pleasant but had to be waved down to get service. Would go back for drinks.

    The waiter (a tall man) was in something else, not aware of the table. Rude and unprepared, luckily the girl around the area helped us to bring us the cutlery to eat, we even end paying more than we have to because we don’t like to argue, but definitely we are not coming back

    I highly don’t recommend going here. The food was so overcooked with no flavor at all. We had the sirloin bites, calamari and chicken curry. The bacon wrapped sirloin bites were way over cooked with no flavor at all, it took forever for me to chew through just one. The calamari was chewy and not cooked properly, the chicken curry was so spicy, not a good flavorful spicy just grossly hot. It was extremely loud in Hemingway. They play the music so loudly my partner and I practically had to yell across the table. Definitely not a good experience for us. :/

    Very disappointing. So much so that my friends and I didn’t actually stay. We had lunch elsewhere. Quite frankly I don’t want to be having lunch on plastic chairs - in Yorkville. Too “pub-y” for my tastes. Hemmingway’s has got to step it up a few notches!

    Food was great. A bit noisy but that’s a busy restaurant. The service was pretty poor and when I had to find a server to get my bill, I discovered all of the servers drying silverware! Can’t Hemingways hire someone to do this? How can servers be expected to serve on a busy Xmas dinner when they’re doing some else?

    Horrible service. Extremely racist. If you are brown / asian stay away from this place. Even after reserving a table, they made us sit out on patio. The patio is heated but not covered entirely and was really cold. Who wants to eat with their jackets on? And guess what people sitting on patio were all asian / brown people. surprise?
