Not a place for coffee, tea, food in general & dessert. Unfortunately, my family were very disappointed knowing that this restaurant is in the high-end Yorkville. Prefer to go to other pubs for beer and drinks.:(

Hemingway’s provides a great atmosphere and their patios allow for all types of weather with heaters and retractable awnings. Good and booze very reasonably priced. Staff are always cheerful. Been going there for years. My favourite haunt!

If you want to watch sports, that is not the place to go. Management would promise games when called on the phone and then don't play them and couldn't care less, simply say they don't remember any calls....quite disrespectful, I have to say.

Good service. I will say the server was very attentive and polite. Horrible food. I got veggie fajitas, it came as if it was sitting under the light for a long time. The wraps weren’t cooked properly. The lettuce was brown. The guac. tasted horrible. My bfs bread tasted as if the dough wasn’t baked properly. Even though they probably don’t actually make it there.
Overall, I ate the simplest dish to make and they could hardly get it right.

Everything was great, felt very safe, and loved the patio. Loved it all except the Pavlova was not great -- like a hard dried out meringue rather than true pav -- which was really disappointing for this kiwi.

A great server and food is what I expected. However, this is the second time I was with a friend and we were offered the worst table on the top level looking out at a ladder and construction. When I come with my husband, I never have this problem. Sexism?

Staff were inhospitable, the lady that showed us to our table didn't even do so much as to smile, she seemed more annoyed. Server was always gone, didn't even make sure that we had enough water. We felt ignored throughout.

Grossly overrated establishment. Atmosphere was not great. Smelt sweaty and like garbage. Floors were sticky and wet. Chairs were plastic and cracked. Service was awful, 20 minutes before getting drinks; said “what ya want”, “here you go” and didn’t introduce herself. Food was over cooked and very dry for calamari and fries.

Good place for casual drinks on the patio. Lots of shade on a hot day and not too noisy so you can actually carry on a conversation without shouting. Sweet potato fries were hot and crispy; Rose’ could have been colder but nothing a few ice cubes couldn’t fix. Was able to make a reservation easily. Service excellent. I will come back.

The food and overall patio was really nice, however there were two things that were bothersome. Our waitress was not attentive and took over an hour to finally take our order (after nudging the hostess). Also we were originally seated in front of a fan that was blowing water onto us, but luckily they were able to move us to a table over. Aside from those two things overall a great time and really enjoyed the food!

I was very impressed with the attention paid to covid 19 spread prevention / mitigation the outdoor seating. A great deal of thought obviously went into this which allowed me to relax and enjoy the experience. The food and service were very good.
