As usual, Hemenway's did not disappoint. Everything was wonderful for a very nice luncheon with our children prior to one of them returning to NYC. The ambiance, meals and service were great.
Been to Hemmenways many times for both business and personal occasions, and never disappointed. Was the first time there for my date who was very impressed. It was our Server, Sean, though who really made our afternoon special.
First time visiting but it lived up to expectations.
We were not disappointed as usual when we come here. It was a special occasion, birthday. Incredible food, service and ambiance! Thank you Hemenway’s for continuously serving as a go to restaurant!
My mother who is 80 I gave her a gift card to go there and her response to me was it was the fanciest and best food restaurant she's ever been to . For me to see me mom happy and enjoy something is a good feeling. she has traveled a lot so she has been to many places
Food was excellent, but the portions are to small... I ready was ready to eat again five minutes after I left the restaurant...
Disappointed where they seated us especially when reservations were made well in advance. if we wanted to be by the oyster bar we wouldn't have made reservations! The food was good but felt very rushed..we weren't even finished with our appetizers when the soup arrived which had to sit there until we were done with the appetizers, side bread plates were taken away even before bread arrived.. like I said very disappointed when you think your dinning in a high end restaurant and paying $$ prices.
So many amazing dishes on the menu, along with daily chef specials, you have no choice but to come back to try something new. You can taste the freshness of the raw bar and the staff makes you feel more than welcome. Had a great table overlooking the river.
Overseasond paelha you could smell the the overbearing smell of saffron before they arrived at the table rendering the entire meal uneatable, definitely a letdown as everyone else at the table felt disappointed with the quality of the food. Staff was very attentive and friendly.
I took my wife there for a Valentines dinner. We could not have been more happy. The food was excellent, the ambience was wonderful, and our server, Jeff, was fantastic
Whenever I have a special occasion to celebrate with my family, friends or wife....I can always count on Hemmingway's to make it a perfect evening. Making my reservation through Open Table is always easy, and my special requests were not overlooked by the restaurant.
Our meal was delicious and the staff was very professional and accomodating. WE had a waitperson who was professional, and very personable. Overall a perfect evening.
Belated valentine dinner
From our greeting to our departure, top shelf 100%. Food was great, atmosphere was nice, waitress was outstanding, attentive to detail.
Loved the food. Service was good too
Very enjoyable meal with excellent service!
Always worth going to Hemenway’s. Food, atmosphere, service, and the location are perfect for an enjoyable dining experience.
There was no wait for a table because of our online reservation. The waitress was delightful and recommended some fantastic food. Overall, everything was superb and we couldent have had a better seafood dinner.
Drinks were great. Service was great. Noise level was too loud and so was the music. People had to yell over the music. Not for a romantic dinner out.
Clams Casino was terrible. Just breads crumbs over clams. Have had better elsewhere. Lobster was outrageous at $30.00 a pound. Ordered 2 lbs and it looked like a pound and a quarter. Was good but nothing out of the ordinary. Skipped dessert.
My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner on Valentine's Day. It was Ash Wednesday also, so we both chose fish. My scallops would rival anything that we have had in the Boston Seaport area! Service was excellent...would definitely return!!
We tried Hemenway’s for the first time. We anticipated a fine experience. We were not disappointed. As a matter of fact, our expectations were exceeded. Of course, the food was prepared perfectly, plated artistically, and delivered with a touch of competent class. We can’t speak too highly of this restaurant and we plan to return soon.
very good experience 2nd visit for Valentines Day very enjoyable afternoon lunch
We were told by a number of people that we need to eat at this restaurant. It was an anniversary occasion and Hemmenway made it special.
Great food and great service!
Had reservations foe later ans they were able to move us earlier. Good food, server was knowledgeable and had good advice on the seafood pasta entree to made it a little spicier. Will visit again.
Although the kitchen didn't prepare my wife's paella according to her dietary restrictions, the servers and staff were quick to replace her entree, offer a free salad and dessert, and take the entree off the bill. Food was very good.
Service was good, food expensive for quantity and quality. Very noisy.
Our experience at Hemenways was as always spectacular. We got the drink special, a strawberry Bellini with scallops wrapped in bacon to start. Both of those I would recommend to anyone. We follows this with the swordfish with Hollaindaise sauce special that they actually run every night and it is easily the best seafood dish I’ve ever eaten. Our server was super attentive and I never had to wait for anything, he was right there. I would recommend Hemenways to anyone and would definitely come again.
We come to providence 4 times a year and always try new restaurants when we visit but we always eat at Hemingway’s! Best service
Fresh seafood, great martinis, a creative twist on classics, and fabulous service will ensure a return trip to Hemenway's. The RI-style calamari is fantastic, entrees were perfectly cooked and delicious, and the desserts were equally amazing. We were not rushed at any point, but enjoyed the fact that our food was delivered promptly. I highly recommend Hemenway's!
Great experience again ar Hemenways! Our favorite restaurant for special occasions!
