I ate here during a recent trip to Toronto, with friends who were local to the area.We sat outside, which was delightful and very atmospheric. I ordered potato wedges with cheese and bacon. When they arrived, they weren't that hot (or fresh) but they were at least edible. The problems came when we wanted to pay. It was quite busy... More

Went here for lunch on my first day in Toronto. It had great outdoor seating, but that was about the only good thing about it. The food was lousy, and the service was terrible. The water cups were more like dixie cups, and the waitress looked like you had asked her for a limb when requesting a re-fill. Simple things... More

Nestled in Yorkville, Hemingway's is a great place to hangout with friends & enjoy good pub food. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to go to a posh area within downtown Toronto & not have to spend too much, to enjoy pub food in a trendy area.

We went to this place for friday lunch. It has a great food with apetizers, salads, pastas and meats, including a perfect (and big) fish and chips! The whole place, but in particular the patio, have a great atmosphere, making you forget you are in downtown. Service good and fast and an excellent selection of beers!

Ate there 2 days ago and had a hair in my food. They took it back and re-cooked me a burger. At the end I asked what they were going to do for my inconvenience and all they gave me was 1 soda ($2.90 off my bill). I told the manager that was a disgrace and he didn't care because... More

We went to this bar to watch the Netherlands/Argentina game. It was busy, and the televisions aren't well-placed, so the only place we could get a table with a view of the game was on the very top level patio. The television up there was ridiculously small for such a large space. We had to squint to see the ball.... More

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
