We used OpenTable to reserve our spot and requested a booth for our 48th wedding anniversary celebration. Everything went smoothly. We were seated as soon as we walked in the door & were greeted by the host/hostess very warmly. The booth was perfect and the waiter let us take our time and truly enjoy our evening. Our very special night couldn't have been more perfect.
Excellent food and ambiance! Creative seafood dishes!
Hemenways is my go to restaurant for business dinners and family occasions all year round.... simply fantastic!
Amazing seafood and great prices! Super fresh and locally sourced. The service was attentive and friendly, and we even received free champagne glasses for our anniversary. It was a lovely experience and we are excited to return!
This is our 3rd time to dine at Hemenways and we live in Boston so you are not close. Every time we have been there the food is outstanding and the service impeccable. We had Nathan last night and he was outstanding. We look forward to returning.
Great service & delicious food!!
Wonderful food and nice view. Best lobster o have had in a long time. We took our chance and took our four and five year old there and they were very welcoming to them.
so great! our waiter was very attentive and friendly, amazing food, lovely patio, and great atmosphere. i recommend!
Ellie was great! Super professional server ! Food always excellent and arrived super fast considering it was Father's Day evening
I have not been here in a bit. I would have to say the food and service was fabulous!
Food was so tasty and our serve Theresa made great beverage pairing suggestions. We really enjoyed the whole experience. Our family also felt safe with the spacing and plexiglass installations. Wonderful time.
The service was well timed and our waiter Kevin was a delight. Funny and well informed. We ate outside and partway thru it started to rain. We were immediately placed at another table. Being outside in the garden area was pleasant except for some loud passerby cars and people. We loved the scallops and the seafood casserole. Desserts were presented beautifully- key lime pie, no flour chocolate cake as well as the creme brûlée all fantastic.
We were given a very nice quiet corner table for my elderly dad to celebrate early father’s day. He so enjoyed it. Thank you to Sara for fantastic service!!! Also Kyle did a great job along side her.
Outstanding service and excellent food. It was a great night out. We will be back again and again.
It was a lovely evening with friends. The view of the river is wonderful. The staff is attentive and friendly. The food is excellent.
1st time out since COVID and it was delightful. Couldn't have pisced a better place!
Fantastic service! In my opinion, a place with mediocre food but great service will win with me, but this place has both. The views are great, menu was amazing and see ice was the best I have received in a while. It’s a bit pricey, but finally a place that is worth it.
Some of wait staff need more training - the person who brought the appetizer touched my silverware tops by mistake and didn’t offer to change them. One of our drinks was spilled on the table. We were not offered wet towels after eating from the raw bar and no bread was brought (other customers got that). Food is good and view is nice.
The staff was welcoming and the waiter was very nice everything was great the restaurant is a place to go to eat great RI food and to spend time with your loved ones
Hemenway’s serves creative and classic seafood meals. I had the best bloody mary ever to start. My dining partner and I shared a salmon roll that was perfect. My sea scallops were cooked exactly right and served on a creative puree. My partner said his shrimp were delicious. The view of the river at sunset was lovely and our server was very professional snd friendly. I highly recommend it.
Very lovely room, and friendly staff. Food and drinks very good. Wonderful experience
It was my birthday and I have to say I had the best meal I’ve ever had in my life. Brian was our waiter. He was friendly, knowledgeable and talked me into getting the whole fish special. I ate the entire meal it’s was unbelievable. We can’t wait to return. Thank you so much for an amazing evening.
Always consistently FABULOUS!! Food, Service, Cocktails and atmosphere. Our server, Diana, was absolutely delightful.
Wonderful food, great service, scenic location and reasonable prices
Danny is the best server ever for families. And we ask for him every time
Best lobster bisque anywhere. Everything was exceptional.
Vegetarian entry was not edible..
One of my party was on the toilet for 15 minutes immediately after arriving home...he had the surf and turf..maybe bad scallops?
We were celebrating two birthdays and an anniversary and our server was wonderful and the food never disappoints!
Just out for dinner
Everything was perfect. Sat in the Regatta room overlooking the river. Food and service outstanding!
Excellent food in a lovely setting. Not a bad seat in the house! Professional service.
Outstanding! Great service.
Another GREAT dinner at Hemenways! Love the friendly and professional service. The food is always top notch. Can't go wrong with the crab legs, filet or swordfish. Save room for dessert. The key lime pie is out of this world!
This is definitely the place to go for a special occasion. Very classy!
We ordered a few appetizers- the calamari and bacon wrapped scallops were excellent!!! Not crazy about the RI clam chowder and the stuff crunchies. We were really looking forward to the paella but it’s nothing to rave about. The overall is very mushy and a bit spicy. We were sat at a corner table and the air conditioner was so strong that our food got cold before we were halfway going through it. Hopefully, we will have a better dining experience next time.
Great experience! Staff were pleasant and helpful, food was fabulous, and it felt good to be out with people. We ordered a dozen local oysters that were fresh and sweet. My wife had the Baked Stuffed Lobster, Fisherman's style and I had the Ahi Tuna seared rare for entrées. Both meals were delicious. Prices were reasonable considering the quality and atmosphere. Service might have been just slightly slow, but we were celebrating my wife's birthday and were not in a rush.
No exaggeration, one of the best meals of our lives. The yellow fin tuna was mind blowing! A dish overflowing with flavor while keeping the tuna the star. Our waiter was friendly, informative & attentive. We can't wait for an excuse to go back.
The server was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The food was excellent.
Overall good dining experience, but not exceptional for this caliber of restaurant.
It was our48th anniversary so we wanted the best! And it was! Thank you for the surprise delicious dessert!
