We've been to Hemingway's three times now so I feel fairly confident in my review. All 3 times were weekend afternoons. The atmosphere is interesting and lively.
The retractable awning on the main rooftop patio is excellent for when the sun gets to be a bit much. Also when it rains.
The selection of food is okay. Varies a lot depending on the time of day. Quality was okay given the prices.
All that said, I would go back there anytime for a casual lunch or whatever, except for the service.
Each time it took several minutes for any server to approach us. This review is based on my last visit.
We had to ask especially for water, which was frustrating as it was over 35 degrees out. We weren't once offered refills on water, and when I asked for more water it took almost 10 minutes. The same went for soft drinks.
Entrees all came out at different times, and no explanation or apology by the various indifferent servers.
I got the feeling that if we were drinking more alcohol we would have been more welcome and had better service. Which would be fine if this was a bar and not trying to be a friendly restaurant.
