    One of the nicest seafood restaurants in New England. We came from Boston but it is worth a drive from anywhere. Impeccable waitstaff and hosts. From parking to to dessert, they don't miss a beat. Kathy & Tom

    Hemenway's is located next to the river and adjacent to the Providence Greenway and Memorial Park. We always ask for a table next to the park, as it offers deep shade on hot days. It's a beautiful spot to dine, and a reasonable distance from the road noise, well from most road noise, except the dolts who blast their stereos at full volume to announce they have arrived in the neighborhood! Our excellent waitress quickly provided ice water and took our order. Very tasty warm rolls and butter were brought to us just before our lunches were served. We selected the following entrees: * Caesar Salad with Shrimp $28: Romaine, focaccia croutons, shaved parmesan, Caesar dressing. * Yellowfin Tuna $36: Sesame crusted, crispy sushi rice, pickled cucumber, radish & cabbage salad, fresh chilis, sliced avocado, poke sauce. And an Iced Tea for $4. We try to select cold dishes on hot days. The sesame tuna was nicely rare and quite tender, and the pickled vegetable were perfect accompaniments. The salad and shrimp were crisp and fresh. We've ordered these dishes before and would be happy to do so again. Lunch with tip cost $87, so it's higher end fare, but worth it considering the quality, service and venue provided.

    The service was excellent, everyone was friendly and I for the most part, enjoyed my experience. Regarding the food, I was expecting better quality and presentation given the price.

    Not sure if it was an off night but wasn’t the quality we are accustomed to at Hemenways. Meal hd bones in it, bottle of wine was not placed in chill bucket, very slow service and wrapped up with wrong bill charged to us and now we have pending funds that are incorrect on our account.
