We were invited by friends to meet them at Hemingway's. We had never been there but were pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed plantain crusted Talipia and Cesar salad and it was excellent. Service was right on (attentive without being a pain) and cocktails were ample and reasonable in price. Our group of four were seated outside away from the music but close enough to enjoy it and still talk. Everyone enjoyed their meals and felt they would come again.

The food was very good and the weather was perfect to sit outside to listen to the music. Unfortunately we were stuck at the second to last table at the end of the seating area and felt like we were practically in the parking lot. Sit close to the middle section near the Italian restaurant across the way.

My friend and I had lunch here while shopping at Coconut Point. My lunch, the salmon salad on baby spinach, was very disappointing. It was a decent sized piece of salmon but was served on a very small handfull of spinach. I don't eat much but finished it off and headed into my friends dish. She had the pulled pork sandwich with fries. It was served on a huge roll and the flavor was really good. Good thing it was a large portion! I ate half of it. The ice tea was watery and not great. The service was slow. Don't go if you want a quick bite.

Ordered sea scallops at 22$ and had only 4 on the plate, each no more than an once or less. Asked manager about it and she said the portions were weighed and that was accurate. After being seated outside we had to go inside and ask a server to attend to us.
