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.

Great service. We were originally seated inside but they were able to find a table for us on the patio. The staff were all great!

Great food, friendly service. QR code menus on each table so no need for physical menus to be sanitized constantly, plexiglass barriers up in between tables to help protect guests. Covid friendly night out!

We had a lovely time! Our server was amazing, food and drinks delicious, we felt safe as they're very conscious of covid-19 compliance and regulations there... an all-round perfect experience for a safe and enjoyable and much-deserved night out with loved ones after a long lockdown. Good job Hemingway's owner and staff! We'll be returning for sure.

Service was excellent and Covid 19 requirements were closely followed. We felt very safe
and enjoyed being on the covered patio with fresh air. The service was excellent and the food was enjoyed by all. I would recommend Hemingways without hesitation.

This place is phenomenal. The food was outstanding. Was a bit early for our reservation and they accommodated without an issue.

Highly recommended this place.
Buttermilk Chicken Sandwich, Fish Tacos and Nachos are to die for.

You will NOT be disappointed

Server was very unhelpful and surly. Didn’t come to take drink order for 15 minutes and when waived down was very rude. My guest had issues with the menu app and server would not provide information to assist with how to access it and just got her a regular menu. I had to ask twice for sugar for my tea, during which time it got cold. No salt, pepper, hot sauce/condiments were offered for our meals. Long wait to be checked on/order second round of drinks. Had to wait a very long time for the bill. Very poor service overall.

I thought “high top” meant what it implies - the highest outdoor level, but I was wrong. It needs to be clarified when booking. It was very, very loud. Server was slow and never came back to us, so we had to ask for another to get our orders. Overall, it was good though.

The food was amazing (Jambalaya & wings), glacial beers flowing freely and the atmosphere was electric for Raptors game 6. The best patio in Toronto without a doubt. No wonder the Toronto mayor loves this place so much!

The only curious part - it looks like one of the managers put his pants in the dryer too often perhaps. His name starts with an "R" and he is about 5'10 i believe.

Despite COVID measures, you can feel comfy with the table and the attention.
Our server (Steve) was so kind always attentive in case of needing something.

Amazing place

Our server was fantastic, friendly, and attentive.

My sangria and dessert were delicious.

I just expected more from my salmon salad- it was boring and flavourless, and visually unappealing. The dressing had no flavour and the salmon was thin and under-seasoned.

Went for brunch. I got the Eggs Hemy and my friend got the Eggs Benny. Prices are very reasonable, but you get what you pay for. Service was great. Coffee was good. Patios are casual. This is more of a place for having drinks on the patio than foods.

I went there for a night out with my best friend and I booked our table from a week in advance but when we reached there, they didn’t let us go to upstairs tables (the place we always go) and they gave us a seat near bar downstairs which was in middle of the way of people crossing and the environment was so dead and boring. It ruined our Saturday night and we didn’t stay there too long and we left after few minutes. I used to love hanging out with my friends in this pub before but after this very bad experience, I never wish to go back there.

Food was good
Service, when she was there, was good. It was busy so I was not too surprised that it was a bit slow.
Patio ambiance was good
A bit pricey, but hey it’s yorkville

Cheap furniture, poor attitude of a person who seated us: when I arrived there were a few tables reserved but nobody was there yet. Mind that when I reserved the table in advance, I can't really reserve a specific table. So, when I asked the person to seat my friend and I to another two-persons' table on the veranda, she refused being borderline rude and said they all reserved (which is technically, a non-sense). So, I said - I had a reservation, too - why I can't be seated where it is available and how my reservation is different from somebody's else? She couldn't respond and said that we either need to take a table or leave. I wish I had that girl's name but she didn't have a name tag, either. Please remember that when people go out not just to out but to get the whole experience of being out and that person didn't help it.

I’ve been coming to Hem for a long time and usually don’t have issues with my reservations, but yesterday’s experience wasn’t pleasant trying to get a table. We were told that there were no tables available and waited until 8pm (our reservation was at 7:15) before i insisted that there had to have been a spot opening. The lady at the front said that there were no spots open but I insisted that we get placed at the bar and then at a table when it opens up since we already waited 45min. We get upstairs and there are 2-3 open tables.... unacceptable. The service after that was very good and it was why I’m a regular. Hope to not experience a reservation issue again.
