MidiCi Italian Kitchen - East Providence
Attention to detail was excellent. I arranged to have a cake delivered from a local bakery for my husband's birthday and from the moment we walked in the door I didn't have to say one word to anyone about the cake . When dessert time arrived the cake was presented in a lovely way that didn't was just perfect. The service was excellent from beginning to end and the food was very good.
Service was good but the timeliness and accuracy of the kitchen was not good. Apps did not come out together, over 10 minuets apart, wine on the wine list was not in stock . When dinner came out the steak with my surf and turf was way undercook based on my request. They took it back to the kitchen and the same piece of meat arrived back at the table over 15 minuets later cooked the same. The redeeming quality was the management team did their best to try and make it right with some dessert. I will give it another chance because this was my first ever not so great experience.
Enjoyed ourselves so much we bought 2 GC for family for Xmas.
Absolutely grand! Great service, all around. Great food, all around (three different entrees, 2 apps, 3 different drinks, 1 super dessert.
2 out of 3 meals perfect. Scallops special overcooked and rubbery. We have eaten many times at Hemenway's and will many more times. This is the first time I've every had a meal that wasn't perfect.
Beautiful view of Providence from large floor to ceiling windows. Very friendly staff. The hot seafood platter and seafood casserole are out standing. Great service!
The food is always the most important thing when eating out, however we enjoy the total experience and Hemingways has it all. What made the evening was our Waitress Diane! She made everything simple and special at the same time. Every seat in the house affords a fantastic view given the elevated seating and enormous windows. We like being treated special, even if we aren't dressed up and even if we are only having a martini and a soup. This was the right place for our low key, but very special anniversary dinner. Best of the night was the escargot, which I had never had before absolutely loved in its drenched butter and garlic!!!!
Excellent service and the seating location was fantastic. What a lovely city view to match the spectacular seafood!
Very pleasant service. Food was good, not great
Excellent restaurant. beautiful atmosphere, professional service, delicious food, easy parking.
Great experience in every category! We’ll be back....again!
Great service! Fresh oysters! Wonderful chopped salad with a price of tuna
Reservation made with ease, wonderful table by the window, in the back. Service was amazing (Anya) simply perfect! Food... Excellent, as usual!
I find the service and atmosphere exceptional. Would highly recommend the Newport Restaurant Group.
Your food is always consistent. Anna is my favorite wait person. She is knowledgeable about the wine list and how food is prepared.
Our waitress was lovely and the food was excellent. It is pricey but it is absolutely worth it.
It was a fabulous night out with my family
Our server Theresa, was wonderful and took such good care to make sure everything was perfect.
We look forward to meals at Hemenways every time we visit Providence. Excellent restaurant in every way.
Had an excellent dinner here with the family on Thanksgiving eve. Fresh, perfectly cooked seafood- we especially enjoyed the local oysters, calamari, sea scallops, and the roast fish of the day. And save room for the key lime pie! Service from the receptionist greeting and coat check to our server and service staff was friendly, attentive, and thoroughly professional. A beautiful dining room with a high ceiling, glass walls, and a view onto the Providence River. For a special dinner, you can't go wrong here.
I enjoyed the interaction with the server, they are very knowledgeable. The food was enjoyable and the atmosphere was great.
Brandi was an excellent server. Everything was perfect!
Lunch was terrific at Hemenway's. We had the fish tacos and the fish and chips, both on the Power Lunch menu. We both had a salad first and it was really delicious, with just the right amount of dressing. The fish and chips were crisp, hot and very tasty, and my friend really enjoyed her messy, but good fist tacos. You can never go wrong with a meal at Hemenway's - never had a bad one yet!
We had a great meal except the fact that our server spilled cocktail sauce on my brand new jacket and nothing was done about it. To throw in a free desert since I have to take it to get dry cleaned wouldn't be that hard.
Tyler - Very sorry about your jacket. Please contact Nicole Christie, our Assistant General Manager, at 401-351-8570 so we can discuss your experience in person.
Nice table; had plenty of room even though it was a busy night Food very good Only one objection to the entire experience but one that should be resolved for the future
While the waiter was very personable, he didn’t bring bread over , even during our salad course. I noticed it going by with another waiter so I asked our waiter and he finally brought some by but it was after we had eaten and cleared our salad . Also we had Cesar salad and he didn’t automatically ask if we’d like fresh ground pepper for it which usually in good restaurants including yours had happened in the past I had to ask for it
Thank you James. We are glad you enjoyed and happy that your table gave you lots of room. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your service. We will discuss your experience with our team. Making sure our guests have what they want at the time they want it is important to us. We appreciate the feedback and we hope on your next visit your experience is more of the quality you have come to expect from Hemenway's.
A tad disappointed with this particular visit in regards to the food. It wasn’t bad, but not as stellar as in the past. Our appetizers were calamari and scallops. The calamari consisted of smaller rings and lots of fried peppers, to a point where I could not tell one from the other. The scallops were served warm, as if they had been sitting for a while. Our main course was lobster, which was tasty but a little too chewy. The service was just adequate, yet friendly.
Sorry to hear we did not live up to your expectations JWAs. We continue to strive to deliver exceptional food and service to all our guests and never like to hear we let someone down. We will share your feedback with our culinary team. If you'd like to tell us more, we'd love to hear about what else you observed. Please give Nicole Christie, our Assistant General Manager, a call at 401-351-8570. Delivering a five-=star experience is important to us.
We had an amazing time here for our anniversary. Our waiter was friendly, fast, and knew everything on the menu. Every staff member was nice, and willing to accommodate. Phenomenal service, wonderful night, and the food was fantastic.
Thank you for celebrating with us and we are so happy to hear you both enjoyed. We are grateful for your kind review and look forward to serving you again in the future.
Food was amazing and service exceptional. Beautiful night view of downtown.
Thank you Allison! The Providence Skyline is gorgeous at night - we are lucky to have our view.
Hope you enjoyed the show and your dinner!
We Loved our meal and evening at Hemenway after a long drive from NYC
Thank you Carleen and glad we could be a place to enjoy after your long trip. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Providence.
Another AMAZING meal at Hemenways! We were fortunate to have a wonderful greeting by the concierge, Melissa, whose welcoming smile simply lights up the room. Being patrons of Hemenways for many years, we did hope to see our favorite waitperson, Bill; however he has moved into a well deserved retirement. It was lovely to note that Marissa, our server for the evening, continues with the high standards and professional excellence that has always defined a meal at Hemenways. The meal was well timed, the suggested menu items were on point, and as always - the ambiance was exquisite. Lest I forget - do yourself a favor and order the baked stuffed shrimp. Heavenly!
Thank you SJTravels! You are too kind with your praise. We are glad you enjoyed and we will be sure to pass along your compliments to Marissa and Melissa. We miss Bill - it's not the same without him - but we are glad he is enjoying his retirement. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit.
One of our favorite go to restaurants. Always pleased with best-quality seafood and great service. Brian was great, knowledgeable and amiable.
Ceviche and pan-fried halibut were perfect. We'll be back in a fee weeks for more!
Thank you kowneow. We are thrilled to be one of your favorites. We are happy that Brian took good care of you too. You were in good hands. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Hemenway’s is a fine dining establishment and is among the best options in Providence. It has a diverse menu as well as nice wine and cocktail selections (my Pumpkin King drink was both seasonal and excellent). My wife’s octopus was great and my baked, stuffed shrimp was innovative. The baked Alaska was incredible. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Louise was helpful with options and did a great job.
Thank you Wahoo and we are proud to be considered one of the best. Glad you enjoyed your meal too from the Pumpkin King cocktail to the Baked Alaska. We will be sure to pass along your compliments to Louise too. We look forward to your next visit.
Food was amazing! Great 5 star experience for any occasion!
Thank you! It's always an honor for us to receive a five-star rating from our guests. We're glad you enjoyed.
I love that place, but unfortunately, this time around, the food wasn't up to par, neither for myself nor for my colleagues. Hoping it's a one off, not a trend.
Very sorry to hear this Julia - we never like to disappoint our guests. We'd love to hear more so we can ensure your next visit will be as could as you have come to expect from Hemenway's. Please give Nicole Christie, our Assistant General Manager, a call at 401-351-8570. Not being up to par is not what we are about and we'd love the opportunity to hear the details of your experience.
Greeted kindly, special attention to my elderly mother, considerate staff & excellent food/presentation.
Thank you for joining us Brad and glad you enjoyed. We are glad we could help your mother too. Hope you will join us again.
Allowing people to walk in,in sweatpants and sneakers on a Saturday night...thought they had a dress code...food was o.k. and over priced....will never return.

Sorry if you felt the experience was not worth the value. We will take your feedback to heart. Your satisfaction is important to us and we'd love to someday earn back your confidence. Sincerely, Nicole Christie Assistant General Manager 401-351-8570
Excellent service and beautiful restaurant. Food was wonderful!
Thank you! We are glad to hear that and happy you enjoyed.
Great food and awesome service!
That is great to hear. Thank you.
Been to Hemingway’s many times but a tad disappointed this trip. It use to be our go to seafood restaurant.
Our favorite dish use to be the lobster ravioli in vodka sauce . That is no longer on the menu. In fact there are no pasta dishes offered at all now.
The seafood platter app was partially burnt and not at all like we expected from this restaurant in the past.
Prices have also increased significantly. We don’t mind paying for quality but four pan seared scallops at $32 seemed too high. They were perfectly cooked however.
Sadly our entire party stated after that we won’t be returning here again. Too many other great restaurants in Providence that are reasonable and quieter atmosphere.
The pluses from foursome at lunch - delicious, authentic Rhode Island clam chowder, perfectly glazed salmon with crispy asparagus, huge lobster roll, wonderful crisps of two varieties, tasty tacos
The one negative was one of our diners thought the fish & chips plate was just average.
Loved the booth and the noise level allowed for conversation.
Anya was adequately attentive to our needs, and of good humor.
Deb, at reception, knew who we were as soon as we walked in the door and had time for conversation.
Thank you CeCe43! We are very happy you enjoyed your lunch with us and that you enjoyed our authentic and delicious flavors. We look forward to serving you again in the future.
