I have never had a visit to Hemingway's which I did not enjoy. Of course the upstairs patio is great in the summer season. But the mid-level bar is cozy and welcoming too and so are the downstairs bar and front street seats from where you can watch the passers-by and Yorkville traffic. The staff is friendly and welcoming, and... More

Hemingway's is what one would call your "pub away from home." We all have those spots in our hometown where everyone goes and feels comfortable. It's not over the top and it's not a dive, it just is. We discovered this pub on Cumberland Street in Yorkville and liked it right away. It's a gem for everyone that is visiting,... More

I absolutely love this place. From the warm and welcoming servers to the great food to an awesome selection of taps. Never really there for any food, but when I do have some, its usually finger foods which are on point. But the true star for this place is the patio. Only one quip, the furntiture on the patio could... More

I often go to Hemingway’s for lunch and always stick with my basic favorite burger fries (Best in town). The burgers are thick and juicy and the fries are golden crisp and fantastic. All items on the menu are reasonably priced and the service is fast and friendly. The décor is a little dated but lends itself well to the... More

Came with a large group which means that 17% service charge is added on. Don't hold out for even the basic level of service. Had to ask for glasses 3 times for pitcher of beer, always had to flag her down to get drinks, didn't ask how our meals were.. we know you don't care but make an effort.. guess... More

I’ve been going to this bar since 1998 and I always experienced great service, food and drinks. The setting is one of the best ones (trendy neighbourhood, large patios, tucked away from busy downtown streets, right across from the subway station and less than a minute walk from the public parking). What more could you ask for? We come here... More

Not a bad place to grab a drink. Food isn't particularly great but price is reasonable compared to other places in the area. Patio is nice and always busy with friendly people.

My women colleagues, some retired, get together about six times a year at various places in Toronto. This was an excellent choice for a rooftop patio and a variety of salads which most of us shared. The waitress was kind enough to bring an extra set of plates so we could share the salads easily. They were all delicious and... More

While visiting Hogtown, we decided to visit an old watering hole and were very pleased. The quality and charm were still there. It reminded me of the good old days in Columbia and fond memories of my youth in TO. Designed to look like a ramshackle establishment in the warmer side of Bogota, and I just loved it. We sat...

What works for them is a clean pub and a great patio, and attractive staff. I wouldn't consider this to be a restaurant that's all about service or really prides itself on its service standards. What it does have is a really busy place with great buzz. It's literally across the Road from Remy's which I prefer any day of... More
