Love this spot! Being on the roof was nice, and they were able to social distance everyone.

Hemingway’s is known for its great rooftop patio. The food is acceptable and that’s all you really need.

Me and the girlfriend went for drinks and some appetizers.
I’ve been here many times before and honestly I can not recommend anyone buy mixed drinks here because you can never taste the alcohol. Order gin and tonic and all I could taste was tonic. The drink ended up sobering me after my 2 shots of patron. Ordered another 2 shots of patron that did not taste like the first 2 shots we got but oh well. Sweet potato fries and Onion rings were really good though.

Nice place to go for beer, shooters and appetizers. Can’t agree on mixed drinks. Will still go back great patio and very courteous staff who check at impeccable time frames :)

Hemingways was a great experience because they offer an excellent ambience (albeit social distancing) and great service.
They have made a number of changes to their space to accommodate social distancing and to provide a safe and healthy environment to enjoy the patio weather.

A friend and I really enjoyed our first time eating at a restaurant since the COVID-19 virus struck. Both of us are long-time patrons of Hemingway's, and having been such, we longed for the misting it used to provide on the hot summer days, but understand it missing this time given the reduced capacity required in order to abide by the social distancing rules vs. expense. But this in no way detracted from our enjoyment of the meal. The food was up to its great quality (best pub fare in Toronto IMHO) and exceptionally great service provided by our waitress, Brie. She was a great sport.

Daily Special fish sandwich was tasty but ordinary and small for the price. I guess that’s Yorkville for you. Drinks were good. Patio up top was sweltering. Would I return? Not likely.

Food was great. Staff were very friendly. Our server spoke with us briefly about being back to work. They’ve changed things around to make sure they’re following guidelines. Wonderful service.

The food was as great as always (calamari, chicken souvlakia, fish and chips and pavlova), lovey bottle of wine and very efficient, friendly service. They managed the social distancing well too. If you’ve made a reservation you’re still asked to stand in line so I called and got the manager to radio down that we were there and could come up - only because I was worried they would give our table away if they thought we were late. Hemingway’s is a favourite for sure, looking forward to the next visit.
