    We had a drink and both got the fish and chips which were very good. The restaurant has probably been in Yorkville for 40 years or so and it looks it. It’s really tired, even for a pub, but especially for a “Yorkville” pub. It’s in need of a cleanup and renovation with attention paid to the HVAC.

    I really liked the covered, heated patio! The food was pretty good. It was a bit noise when we were there.....just people talking loud. Thankful the restaurant wasn't blasting loud music, as that would have made it worse. Service was good initially, but then we waited a long time for the bill at the end of our meal. We would come again if in the area.

    Always like Hemingways but found the patio very loud, couldn't really hold a decent conversation with my guest - probably because it is enclosed for the winter. All good though.

    Went for Australia Day event. Sat in the 1st floor bar. It was nice, with acoustic live music. Not too loud. Only shared a bottle of wine as there were various free passed appetizers. Hemmingways is your average Yorkville bar and restaurant so prices are a higher than other Toronto neighborhoods. Ok once in a while but not for the budget conscious

    Great Day! Because it was so busy, orders were understandably backed up. But my friend and I conversed and this was a minor problem. At my age of 82, I dont allow these small distractions to get to me. We are blessed to live in a great country, and to have an iconic bar like Hemmingways at our disposal. Thank you!

    Took a group of Ukrainians here on Christmas day. Was a great choice of resto location. Service was really great, attentive and easy going. Food delivery was quick and accurate. The place was very busy so I was surprised at how efficient service was. This is not a fine dining resto but the meal was very tasty. Nothing to write home about but nonetheless, very good. And the price was extremely fair. Al in all a great choice for a downtown good value dining choice.

    Nothing bad to say per se, I just felt like the atmosphere in the upstairs patio was somewhat lacking. The temperature kept fluctuating between very cold and very hot, our table kept having to dress and undress! Also could have used some music, the dead silence almost make for a bit of awkwardness during dinner. Other than that, food was good, service was great, had a good time!

    We have never been to Hemingway's and had made a reservation. There were lots of tables, but when we arrived, we were seated on the lower level. We told the hostess we were just there for drinks. When our friends arrived, who have been there lots, we moved upstairs. Would have been helpful if we were told upstairs was more for drinks, and downstairs more for eating, since we've never been there. Also, a gin and tonics was $22. Sorry but that's insane.

    We enjoyed a pre-concert dinner at Hemingway’s on Friday. First we were ushered to the upper patio area. It was very very noisy so we asked somewhere else quieter. Actually I made a reservation for downstairs. So the lady quickly moved us downstairs and we settled down, nice and cosy. The food was good and we enjoyed a good conversation.
