We were on a staycation and wanted excellent dining. We had oysters to start, then a bright and flavorful greens salad, followed by the highly recommended lobster Mac and cheese and build your own surf and turf. All was fabulous. And our wines perfectly complimented our meals. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
Great service. Not rushed. Cabbage salad was delicious. Lovely evening. Easy place to talk to each other.
awesome waiter..Danny..highly recommend
All good, food quality, menu, and drinks. Unlike many occasions in the past, the service was just fair to OK at best.
Overpriced but Excellent seafood - consistently good!
Diane, the server, went out of her way making recommendations on how the meal should be prepared. She even stopped by to ask if everything was oka few times.
Delicious! Great service!
Apps and desert were great. Seafood casserole needs pasta to make it a good dinner and make it worth $32. Zlata our server was great and never rushed us
The food and service were excellent as always.
Loved Diane as are waiter customer service she is great :)
Everything was absolutely delicious, and the surf and turf was unbelievable! It was one of the best meals we ever had.
The only issue I had was that they sat us at a table next to the bar for my son’s birthday. There was no view, and the seating was too tight.
A little busy for COVID but great service and food
Leila was very attentive. We were seated at the perfect table. The food was fabulous! Holly, was in training, but also kept checking with us. Leila is training her well. We had a wonderful time and could not wait to give this review. Thank you.
Excellent all around! It's a little pricy especially the martinis but highly recommended.
Wonderful service, outstanding food.
The reason we came to eat is because we had heard good things from friends.
Our server was understanding and appreciative about the allergies at the table, which was nice. He offered bread 3 times, and we still had to ask the host for it, and someone else brought it. After the introduction, he visited our table one more time to make sure everything was satisfactory, which was roughly 40 minutes after we had been sat. Someone else ran the appetizer, and due to the allergy a manager ran the food. The oysters were not cleaned well, and at 3$ a piece that’s unacceptable. The hot seafood platter appetizer was a good amount of food for the price, and the seafood was cooked very well, but there was bits of paper and a piece of string left over in the plate which doesn’t speak to the level of care an allergy dish should get. Our server did apologize profusely for this and the item was removed from the menu. The baked stuff shrimp were pretty good, but the green beans were unseasoned and over cooked, and the mashed potato’s were whatever. The paella was alright. To sum it up, both items were taken home and still sit in the fridge unfinished.
Maybe it was an off day, but we probably won’t return anytime soon
Food and service is always great. Danny is a fantastic server.
Hemenways is one of our favorites! Eating outdoors on their spacious patio was a delightful experience today - our first trip out for lunch in close to a year! The food was delicious and the service excellent! Can’t wait to return!
While it is a great location and restaurant service is good, I'd rate food medioce. The lobster mac & cheese lobster was chewy and bechamel suacy was not the greatest. We were not impressed and do not plan to come back
We celebrated our anniversary and
Hair in food :(
Hemenway's use to be our favorite seafood place in Providence. This time however the food was just "fair". Swordfish was tasteless. Salmon was ok however. For the food and service it was way overpriced at $200 for two of us.
Service was ok but waitress was not very friendly or personable.
Place has gone downhill in last few years
Two birthdays in the party of 4!
This is one of the best places I have ever eaten at. To start I was stood up and my waitress Ellie was simply amazing. She made me feel like I wasn’t and was soo very kind. She was very attentive and had great recommendations. If you not getting lobster. SEAFOOD CASSEROLE IS WHERE ITS AT!!! The fresh oysters were sooo good as well. I will definitely be returning and it all thanks to Ellie and how amazing the food tasted. Seriously if you are on the fence. Jump it sooooo worth it! Compliments to the chef as well. I’d give 10 stars if I could.
Wonderful! My husband and I enjoyed the experience. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive.
Hemingway’s is amazing. One of Our favorite places.
The food was outstanding. Presentation on the plate matched all the flavors in every single bite of our dishes. However, the service, despite them being hospitable left a lack luster taste in my mouth. If I dine here again, I would return only for the food, not the service. With delicious food and an intimate but casual and welcoming ambiance there is a certain level of service to be expected/required. Upon being greeted tap water was automatically poured instead of being asked if we had a preference to which I ordered a bottled of sparkling water. I had to ask for a shellfish fork for my raw bar appetizer. We were never served appetizer plates, and ate our appetizers out of our bread plates, and were not given serving spoons for our first course which included multiple appetizers. Also, after our appetizers the table was never wiped of debris and properly set for the next course, used silverware should have been replaced, bread plates cleared etc. It is truly the small things such as this that people like myself who enjoy a nice evening out notice almost immediately. Such steps should be necessary when looking to give guests a 100% “like no other” dining experience.
Oysters amazing as always
Service very good
But disappointed in a menu that continues to be a bit mundane and unchanging
We go out to eat for creative dishes!
Food and service was Outstanding as always!
Thank you, Hemenway's for a memorable luncheon on Sunday April 18th. Every bite of food in all courses was magic! Delicious and plentiful. Our waiter took great pride in
telling us about, when asked, the Rhode Island connection to the food. So interested, attentive and well-trained. Ambiance with water view is outstanding.
Joseph provided the best service and, as always, the food was superb
We frequent the Newport restaurant group often however this was not a great dining experience. The swordfish I had was small, overcooked and bland in the black Seabass my companion had he rated eight out of 10.
As always Hemenway's was great. We love it there. The seafood is as fresh as can be, the staff is amazing and the options are excellent!
Anniversary. Have eaten here a few times. Love the food service and atmosphere!!
Our server Jayson was EXCEPTIONAL. He had knowledge of the foods and flavors was smart, kind and funny!
Food was delicious. Bacon on the scallops & bacon could have been cooked more. Overall, a good experience.
The stuffies and scallops wrapped in bacon were great, our waiter Oscar was excellent, and we have no complaints.
We came here for our anniversary and Hemenway's went above and beyond and placed rose petals on the center of the table. It made us feel celebratory and not just another night out to eat. The food was fantastic, everything we got we loved. Definitely will be back!
Our anniversary dinner couldn’t be better. Food delicious, table decorated with rose petals, terrific server Oscar... delicious dessert compliments of Hemenway’s.... couldn’t ask for more than that!
Thank you Oscar and staff for a memorable evening!
Our waitress Theresa was simply amazing, she takes such pride in what she does, she’s so friendly, knowledgeable, and a great trainer !!! As she was trainer a new waitress during our dinner. We’ll deff be back and will ask for her to be our waitress again !!
