Patio's are misted in Summer and heated in Winter, Every seat in the house has a fantastic view of a Large HD screen, ensuring that will you dine, you can also keep an eye on the game.
With the large covered, heated and well-ventilated patio and numerous COVID safety measures they've implemented (reservation and confirmation system, sanitizer stations, distancing between tables, plastic barriers, paper-less menu QR code that directs you first to the contact-tracing information etc) They've done a phenomenal job at ensuring the safety of diners and restaurant staff during these times. This is the only patio I have felt comfortable visiting in 2020.
Great local restaurant. Perfect patio set up well with Covid Safety protocols. Great place to watch sports and excellent service. Staff are all super friendly and accomodating
Food was not the greatest and beer from the keg was flat. Nice looking patio
A good neighbourhood spot. An easy dining experience.
Great location, great food, great service. It’s better to reserve a table before going.
Great roof patio, safe yet warm!
Great food and service
Service was good, not hesitation getting a reservation.
Good atmosphere, location, and food. Great COVID-friendly extended and covered patio.
Great place during covid! Heaters were on and distancing was respected
We were served by Tyler this week. He was extremely professional and very helpful. The food was surprisingly so good. I had the lamb shank. Would highly recommend this place for the service, food and drinks. It was also pretty warm on the upstairs patio. 10/10!
The heated patio was wonderful. The set up was great, good and safe service. Will definitely be returning this winter.
The food and service was great. Helpful staff and a full menu - not a reduced offering. The roof top is warm but fresh air can be felt too. I really appreciated the opportunity to dine out!
I visited on my mother’s birthday with her husband and my wife. We were worried due to COVID concerns about going out to a restaurant but found the facility to be well sanitized with an abundance of hand sanitizer stations. The service was great and staff was friendly. We were outside but sheltered with heaters. Highly recommend and will definitely attend again if regulations continue to allow.
Requests were met with friendly acknowledgements and accomodations
Great food, excellent service, patio is well sheltered and heated. A great place for lunch/brunch.
Casual - not romantic - unless you reserve the tables on the first floor with the fire stands.
Food and service are excellent. I was delayed but the TTC but the staff kindly held my reservation. This has become a regular spot for dining and a drink during covid.
If you need a bit of oasis (or a stay-escape), this is the place to go. Such an energetic atmosphere! Staff are experienced and happy (despite these desperate times), and their food is well prepared. You must try the calamari (juicy and crispy) along with ceasar salad! If cheat night, try their fries... they're simply the crunchy best!
Our server was great. He was efficient and personable. Drinks and food were good. The mood was a bit subdued when it's normally so noisy and crowded. The only awful part was wearing the masks when entering and exiting. I'll be glad when we can get back to not wearing a mask....ever.
Patio dining was excellent - we were comfortable; service was and food was very good as well.
Good Food, great staff, average prices and very Covid-19 safe!
This was my first time at Hemingway's and I was so astounded with the wonderful service. The first thing I noticed was the candlelit ambience. The patio is very large and spaced out. I noticed how the server gave me everything I asked for a bit more each time. I had such a great time!
Sadly, the food arrived cold. Sent it back, but just asking for a “reheat”. Arrived back way too quick. Still cold. Server failed to even enquire if it was “better”. Won’t return.
We are regulars there and service, food, value, people you meet Top notch.
Food was not hot, but we know restaurants are doing the best they can right now, food was tasty, service was fantastic and they are all doing their part to stay safe
Our server Kayla listened to our wishes and delivered our food and drink exactly the way we requested. Good service, tasty food and good value. This will remain one of our dependable spots to enjoy.
My friends are `i love coming to Hemminways. We know Martin, and we've met other regulars as well. The only thing we'd like in the future, is have a seat at the var, and I didn't see an option for that. The nachos were much bigger then our previous times.
As someone who gets cold easily, the heaters were amazing, it wasn't too cool at all. Alex our waitress was super helpful .
the only thing that bothered me was a huge noise coming from the back of the house ... really boring!
We came at the end of the lunchtime crowd, so it was very busy/noisy on our arrival. However, the service was fast and friendly, and the food was excellent (soup & salads for us both). A quite enjoyable lunch, which I hope to repeat again.
Few friends were doing dry November, so nobody had enough drinks to support Trump and make the political chat interesting.
Just had drinks so I can't review the food but I was happy with experience!
Greek salad was good. My husband felt his food was ok, but not great. I had the butter chicken and felt too much cinnamon. I suppose you are appealing to a crowd that doesn't want it too spicy, but i felt could have more of an authentic Indian flavor. Staff were very nice.
I love this place a very relaxed atmosphere
Good food, good vibe and good service. Would recommend.
Great patio. Felt safe during this covid sitch!! Will definitely go back!!
They messed up on many orders at the table (it was a quiet morning too) and my friend found a piece of plastic in her salad. Only pro is the covered heated patio.
We had gone for brunch on Sunday and it was quite busy. The upstairs patio was well heated and sheltered from the weather. The eggs benedict were quite good for the home fries seemed as though they had been sitting around for awhile -- a bit rubbery and barely warm. The Caesars were good. The waiter was friendly.
Service was good. Food was okay. The poached egg on the Benny is a tad bit under, and the plate wasn’t warmed up and the dish got cold pretty quick.
Great place, friendly staff, good food, well spaced out, warm and sheltered. Make a reservation!
Went here for lunch during covid limited lockdown of Oct 2020. Outside temp was 3 but with the many heaters they have on the patio we were fine with our light coats.
