Hemenway's Ratings and Reviews
We had a friend in from Texas and wanted him to have very fresh seafood. They did a great job as always. The server didn't know where our oysters were from and after she asked she came back with "Massachusetts" which was not really specific. Otherwise everything was great.
Very disappointed with server and food. Server not attentive. Had to ask her multiple times for same items. My sister specifically asked for no salmon in her dish twice. Her dinner had salmon in it. I had asked for a lobster roll. The waitress checked with chef She said no problem. I was served a dry roll with lobster meat. I will definitely tell my friends and family very bad experience at Hemenways.
Two couples, everyone was very pleased and felt their food was excellent. Went on a water fire evening, sat by the window and could see the fires in the braziers. Only downside was their parking garage was full so had to go search for a parking spot on the road.
I received 2 positive recommendations for this restaurant, so off we went coming from out of town for a wedding. We were seated immediately and our server, Stacey was very attentive and accommodating. We had about 2 hours to eat before we went to a party and were not in a rush. Stacey didn't mind at all. We started with the antipasto plate and cocktails, and it was perfect for 2 people. Prosciutto, cheese, olive tapenade, figs with bacon and goat cheese were all delicious and could have been a meal. There was nothing left. We shared the halibut special which was cooked to a delicate crisp on the outside and tender inside. Served in almost a broth with gnocchi and vegetable, it was the favored of the two entrees. The other was the tuna under the chef specials. The tuna was good, but slightly tough - we could have used a steak knife, and the pieces were a bit thick for my liking. Nothing not to like!
Visiting from Denver, we were looking for a memorable seafood meal in RI. Hemenway's was definitely the right choice. We ordered oysters, chowder, stuffed lobster and baked shrimp and had pecan torte for dessert. Every item we ordered was prepared to perfection and tasted wonderful. Moreover, the waitress who served us was top-notch: attentive, but not intrusive, with a friendly style.
Highly recommended! Food was amazing! Lobster bisque was the best I have ever had! Beautiful atmosphere! Great, quick service! We had soup, entrees, and dessert on a Friday night at 7:15 and we were done by 8:15. Also, the parking garage with free valet is very convienent.
Dined there while on a business trip to Providence. It was highly recommended by Trip Advisor and definitely lived up to the billing. Superb service from our waitress Allie. She was very efficient and definitely knew the entire menu. She recommended the stuffed lobster which all three of us had. Complements to the chef for the excellent meal. Definitely a place to dine at when in Providence.
I have been to your restaurant several times and was very pleased with the quality of the food but that was not necessarily the case on Saturday night when I took 3 friends for dinner. It was extremely loud we could not hear each other talk and very crowded and we were seated in the farthest back corner.
Our wait staff was pleasant, competent and accommodating. I just didn't think the food was that great and was disappointed based on past visits, simple thing like break off the hard awful asparagus end stalks and cook the green beans more than a blanching.
