Freshest seafood around. Wife and I shared the Seafood Platter. Great oyster selection for the platter. Bacon wrapped scallops were also very enjoyable. Cooked perfectly.
Drink and wine selections are also above average.
Like the parking garage right there and very convenient.

The seafood here is outstanding and very good wine selection. We came here for my Moms birthday, there were seven of us. Everyone was happy with their meal but it feels like the menu is exactly the same as it was last few times we have eaten here. It was a Monday night so perhaps they have specials on the weekends to jazz up the offerings.

I’m from Maine and thought it would be fun to try a classic seafood restaurant in Providence. Frankly, the menu was pretty unimpressive in terms of options and the seafood was underwhelming. There were 6 of us and we each ordered something different. Our meal was overpriced, our fish was unilaterally over cooked, and generally speaking I was pretty disappointed. Would not recommend, would not go there again.

Great spot for a pre-theater dinner or just to pop in for oysters and a glass of wine.

Another delicious meal at Hemenway's this past Wednesday. I started with the boneless ribs app which again were fabulous. I also ordered the Newport Restaurant Group (NRG) Stout which was awesome. For dinner, I ordered the Pot Roast plate for a change and I was not disappointed.

I eat at Hemenways probably monthly and the restaurant and service continues to exceed my high expectations.

Unusual for this restaurant was the service. Previous visits they have been excellent. This visit that was not the case. I don’t think it is typical of the restaurant though and highly recommend it

We went to Hemenways on a trip for our daughter's 16th bday. The service was terrific with 2 waiters serving us. The wine list didn't offer an affordable option for the budget minded. The food was extremely expensive compared to the quality. Other than the lobster Mac and cheese, the steak and paella were mediocre as well as the pasta. The servers told us late in the game that there was an actual "kids menu" after our 2 littles had already ordered. The restaurant did provide complimentary cake for the birthday girl which was a nice touch. The ambience was nice but that wasn't enough to bring us back.

Everyone enjoyed dinner as always. Six of us tonight and everyone Dias the same that I hear from everyone I take to this place; this is the best!

Never had a meal that I didn’t absolutely love and the servers are the best in the business. When you want to show your best customers the best of Providence, look no further!

At Hemmenways, we had delicious food in a lovely atmosphere. WE are regulars here, and look forward to going back again. Tuna poke was a staple for us, and it didn't disappoint this time either, but this time the crackers were rather hard--all our party declined! All of the seafood dishes were delicious. Service was also excellent. The only drawback was the price--slightly high, even despite the excellent food.
