    My husband and I went to the brunch on Sunday. I was really looking forward to it as the menu was so appealing. I am not sure if they were understaffed but it took a very long time in receiving our order and everything on the plate was cold with the eggs being warm. I would like to try it again at a different time. The price is great and portions are perfect.

    I had a reservation for two people and my guest food was great, but mine was not. I ordered a pound of wings with fries . They were the worst wings I ever had Very dry over cooked . Receive more wings then drumsticks. And there was hardly any meat on them. I would never order wings there again

    I will never go to Hemmingways again. I wish I could tell you about the food but I can't because I didnt end up eating. The service here is terrible and there is no point in making a reservation. I made a reservation and showed up. Apparently the hostess said my guests were already seated when I got there but they didnt know where. After directing me to where they "thought" they seated them numerous times I was finally told "we dont know where they are seated just look around" I ended up going home because I couldnt find my table. I won't say to anyone not to go but I will say making a reservation is pointless they dont honour them and I really dont know what the reason is that they have open reservations or are even on open table. Never again will I go here.

    Birthday for my sister. Reception got us a fine patio table. Sis had the souvlaki and I had the fish tacos. Both served quickly and were delicious and satisfying. The house comped my sister with a birthday dessert of french vanilla ice cream and whipped cream over a hot brownie! Servers were friendly, knowledgeable and there when you wanted them. We will return for more goodies!

    Service was great - from the front desk to the table, everyone was upbeat, chatty, even (dare I say) witty. Our limited selection of the menu was 'pub grub'. This was Sunday during brunch (11-3?), so I went for eggs benedict (eggs were good but potatoes a bit soggy). My family had: chicken salad and sweet potato fries (both deemed "excellent!"); a club sandwich and fries (deemed "very good"); and veggie fajitas (also deemed "very good"). Drinks were prompt; food was not far behind. All-in-all, a very pleasant Sunday afternoon meal in a great friendly setting. We will be back.

    My family have been coming to Hemingway’s for years, primarily at lunch time. We came to dinner last night and it was incredibly noisy. We could not hear each other. We finished our main courses and left. Just way too noisy.

    Had a nice lunch on the back patio. It was rather noisy while the rugby game was on and fans at the restaurant were cheering, but overall a positive atmosphere with happy people all around. The back patio was nice, especially where we were sitting, at the outer side so we could see the walkway below.

    Hemmingways can be a good option for lunch, and although can be consistent - there are times that it can be incredibly inconsistent. It's either great service with attentive staff, or (like last night - a Thursday night) taking 30 minutes to order drinks and never seeing our server until we had to flag them down for the bill. Just be aware that with a front patio and an upstairs patio, the staff can be overwhelmed and forget tables.

    My son and I came to see the Springboks play Los Pumas. Unfortunately the game could not be shown due to technical difficulties with the feed. The pub did a good job of helping us understand the problem and offered a free drink to patrons who were there to see the rugby . We left after watching 15 minutes of a replay of the previous week’s game. Disappointing but it’s the first time I can remember this happening at Hemingway’s over the past few years.

    Was told by some friends that it was a bar style restaurant with good food and prices. It was my first time there and I took a business friend in from Vancouver. We both enjoyed the experience. Sat on the main floor and it was a bit loud but over all we could converse. If downtown again I would go back.

    Sent the Souvlaki back twice for undercooked chicken. Gave up on it and ordered the Fish and Chips, which I ate while my husband, who had already finished his meal, waited patiently. Server very apologetic. Comped the Pepsi's. Not a great dining experience, unfortunately.
