Always a quality place with awesome staff, good food and great drinks. The pandemic has put a damper on things but their heated patios are properly heated and we often found ourselves a bit too warm which is preferable to being too cold!

Amazing time at an amazing venue. So much patio space you hardly notice the COVID restrictions in place.

Just a great please to spend time with friends. Food is excellent. Staff nice. Just a little noisy upstairs at times (unavoidable), but great, bright and cheery atmosphere.

Delicious food! In this climate it's nice to know there's a spacious covered patio.
Lunch rush was loud and busy! There was only one server covering the floor; the poor girl was clearly swamped. We hadn't been served in the first half hour and one of our drink orders were incorrect but felt too guilty to even press anything. They were very overwhelmed. Thankfully the solo server received support once the lunch rush died down.

In short, go for the food, bring patient and easy-going company and ensure you're not in a hurry to get anywhere. A great time can certainly be had!

The service was horrible we were planning on eating dinner but left after apps because our chicken wings were horribly over cooked. No one came to check on us. We had to ask numerous times for our bill.

My date was stunning. Engaging. And witty. Except for some minor cigarette smoke at one point everything was perfect.

The date was a success and we are meeting again soon.

Hope to make it back to Hemingway’s one day again.

Thanks!

As usual Hemingway’s doesn’t disappoint.
Spotless Covid 19 set up, dividers by the tables definitely help with feeling safe.
Service great, speedy and pleasant.
Will surely go back!

Delicious food prepared properly. i.e. food right texture and moist that should be, flavours well-balanced.
Service impeccable. Always feel welcome here.
Very accommodating. We have a ritual of coming for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
This year Ontario rolled back to partial Stage 2 just before Thanksgiving, so no indoor dining. My dinner companion cannot climb to rooftop patio, or sit on high bar stools.
Hemingway's assured us that they had expanded their heated ground level patio, and they would be able to seat us. And they did!
Hemingway's followed all COVID19 protocols, so we felt safe. The front/side patio was very cozy and 6 foot space between us and other patrons.
My companion has brought her sister twice now, and her sister has brought her son and grandson as well. They are all very discriminating foodies, and said they would return because everything was so wonderful! Plus they loved the New Zealand beach photo mural on the side patio wall!

Had not been there for years. The menu has definitely changed, but the value for a spot in Yorkville with such great open space during these difficult times was wonderful. Food was beyond what we expected, service was fabulous and the price point was shocking because it was so great. We will definitely be back.

Staff did a great job with seating, service, etc. Service was super quick. Everything felt very safe on the patio. A little too hot and loud but might have been just because our table was right between the heaters.

amazing experience, food is reasonably price and tasty. Drinks are decent but would recommend to drink before so you don’t spend a lot on alcohol. But other then that 10/10 experience would go again and I highly recommend 😊

The patio is very weather safe. It started raining very hard while we were there and the only problem we encountered was that it got a little loud underneath the tin roof.

It was a nice date night for my partner and I. We were sat at the very top. Server was nice. Service was great. We loved the beer pitchers. The Jays game was also on. Unfortunately we had to leave by 11.45pm on Friday since new rules came up again due to COVID.
My partner loved the steak, just needed more salt and pepper though.
