Haven't been in some time, and always had a noted an inconsistent experience ragarding taste/prep of food, guess based on who was in kitchen. However this past time i thought it was totally unacceptable for the following reasons: 1) timing in prep/delivery of food. Ordered 2 apps and later 2 entrees, each time their was a very large gap between... More

Great menu, the sushi was delish! However, my main entree contained what seemed like part of plastic bag that I hoped was from the Parmesan cheese in my dish. They did comp my meal which I didn't ask them to do so that was very professional and appreciated. I would definitely go back here.

This place is a restaurant that turns into a bar/club in the evening. The food was good, but not nearly as good as the prices they charged for it. The drinks were good.

The atmosphere inside is pleasant although Seaside Heights is becoming a run down, not-so-great vacation spot. Food was tasty, we all enjoyed our meals. Had homemade gnocchi, very good. Sister had sliders, also good. Mom had the ribs, again they were good.

We had a long wait for a table - 45 minutes. The food was good with plenty of choice but a bit pricey.

My boyfriend and I were spending a weekend at the shore and were sick of crappy boardwalk food. We stumbled upon this place and were drawn in by the music and outdoor patio giving it a New Orleans feel! Once inside we sat in the dining room which was beautiful. The service was good even though it was busy, and... More

My two best friends and I had dinner at Hemingway's Cafe on a recent girls weekend down the shore. We were in on a Monday evening & even then there was a decent crowd. There was a little wait when we first arrived as they were seating a larger party, and then it took a bit for our server to... More

Nice menu selection with something for everyone. Friends had burgers which said they were good, wife had tilapia which was great and I had some real good sushi. The atmosphere was nice and bar was nice while waiting for a table. It was our second time there and will go back again.

I was looking for a quick bite in a nice atmosphere restaurant. It's 5 pm and the waiter was quick and pleasant. The New England Clan Chowder had a delicious smokey / bacon flavor with hints of vegetables. Pleasantly surprised. Salad looked very deliscious. The Talapia I ordered was cooked just right. No complaint for this quick stop.

We've been here a few times, but the story is always the same...the front desk is extremely poorly organized and the employees don't know how to handle a rush; they end up being very rude as a result. We waited 20 minutes before they even took our name down, and there was only 2 of us. 2 employees were seating... More
