Great place for pub grub!

We enjoyed going to Hemingway's for a light dinner after a performance. The venue is well located in Yorkville, but the prices are less than you would expect for a Yorkville spot. Great fish and chips (very generous).

Very reasonably priced, fun place! Food menu is huge, tough to choose, but everything is very well made, this was my second time here and was quite happy both times. Service was a little bit slow, but servers were cheerful and nice. We shall be back again:-)

Great Brunch spot. They have a covered & heated patio (it's November). Love their house potato

This restaurant was very crowded and extremely loud, so if you want to have a conversation during dinner, it's next to impossible. The servers are extremely busy so this translate to poor service. My husband's soup and entrée were brought to him at the same time even though they did not fit on the table (which are very tiny). I couldn't wait to finish my meal and leave as soon as possible. Would not recommend to anyone.

Had a great night at Hemingway’s. Food, service, drinks was spot on!!! It was really loud and close to the tables next to us which made it hard to hear it other at times. However it was a Friday night so or be expected.

Too loud with the conversation around us. Food was fine but not worth going back for.

We always wanted to eat a traditional Thanksgiving meal, and we finally got to do so at Hemingway's! The portion size was fantastic and totally value for money. The pumpkin pie was delicious!

While at one time I would have recommended Hemingway's for food, after this lunch experience I will think twice on it. The food was average. The restaurant/bar is a great place for drinks and that is what I would recommend it for.

Worst service, worst food ever. We had a reservation. There for four of us. Our food was delivered separately so we did not eat together. The food was awful. While we sit outside, that was the only thing we liked. The salt and pepper and ketchup was all gross smothered in goo so when you picked them up you thought they were so gross. We had to wait for cutlery EACH time they brought food. Disgusting. Considering this is in Yorkville, I thought it would be a great place ! Not !

My food came with a hair in it. Disgusting. But the wait staff apologized and replaced my order and took it off the bill. Still I found it difficult to enjoy my meal after that

A good affordable patio in downtown Toronto. The views aren't great but the ambiance more than makes up for it. The menu is vast, so it's perfect for a group with different taste buds. The food itself is good, nothing amazing. I'd come here again to hang out with friends who all want to eat something different.

We opted for the this venue as our home base, to watch the Final Game of the FIFA Women's World Cup Series. We had many Friends and Family visiting and staying in Yorkville Hotels.
So,we chose the 'Upper Deck Patio" and since our group was fairly large, we were spread out across several tables; all with a great view of the Game on the many 'Big Screen TV's'.

Awesome Food combined with Superb Service (With that special 'Kiwi Twist').

BRAVO !

We were there for lunch on Saturday. The place is very nice, the atmosphere is relaxed, and the ambiance is very pleasant. Next time we will sit at the patio, weather permitting.

Great spot in Yorkville - patio tends to get pretty packed when the weather is good but servers are accommodating and attentive. Never been disappointed by the food or drinks and always had great service

Been going to Hemingways since 1999 - great food, good beer selection and just an overall awesome place to hang out. Understated for Yorkville, which is a selling point!

This was my first time at Hemmingways and it was amazing the staff were so kind and the atmosphere was wonderful, I would 100% come back again and i would definitely recommend this place to my friends. The food was amazing and was brought out quickly which is rare in some places (A+). And the prices for everything were very reasonable. Overall I had an amazing time!! Thank you Hemingways for being wonderful!

Service was good, the only small problem was there was so much tables set out waiters were bumping into my chair everytime they had to attend to the other tables. I felt cramped in

Excellent fried chicken. As long as you're ok with a pound atmosphere it's a good place for pub style food.

Went to Hemingway's for a hockey game. It was promoted to have the game playing with the volume on. The volume kept getting turned off or so low to a point where you couldn't hear anything. It turns out that a group of people did not want the sound on. The manager did a poor job de-escalating the situation and it was frustrating and disappointing that one table could dictate and change the plans that the restaurant publicly announced.

Service otherwise from the servers were good though. It LOOKED like they were understaffed, but were still timely with taking orders and bringing drinks.

What a great spot for casual eats and good energy in the middle of Yorkville. The heated rooftop patio is such a win, and our server was one of the friendliest people I've ever met. Service was extremely fast and portions were generous. I would say that my famous HFC (Hemingway's fried chicken) was a touch overdone, but the meat was still juicy. Their vegetarian fajitas (came recommended) were plentiful and loaded with amazing sauteed vegetables.

Overall, great find and we would love to come back again.
