Hemingway's Ratings and Reviews
The food was very good. Service was exceptional. Even though the restaurant was up scale they were Very welcoming of kids. If someone has dietary restrictions- they also offer a vegetarian menu. They even have a nice kids menu - which I presume is a common find in the upscale dining locations in Orlando
The server was nice enough to get us a sumptuous and delicious chocolate cake with strawberry for our anniversary
Fantastic Meal with friends. I have been here a few times. I highly recommend to anyone. If you visit the establishment, you might do well to request Marty as your server. He has been there 19 years, and is better than ever. Great place, friendly and quiet atmosphere absolutely fabulous seafood.
We have stayed at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress several times and always make it a point to dine one night at Hemingway’s, you can guarantee you’ll have a great meal and leave having had a great experience! Staff is very friendly and I honestly dont have one negative thing to say about this place! A must try for sure!
I don’t like to write negative reviews, but this restaurant needs to “step” it up a notch. Service was slow. The salad dressing was average as well as the entire meal. The desserts looked good, but after waiting so long for our salad, etc. not worth the wait.
Ambiance vibes 1990's; not at all unpleasant, just not contemporary and that may well be part of the appeal. Staff are low-key and friendly and the waiter was very professional. Cocktails were well-done; food was very good. It's in the Hyatt Regency but easily accessible for non-guests like we were. We would go back, for certain.
Bread is great. Service was excellent. Food was ok at best. I had the duck. It was a breast and leg quarter. Flavor was good by it was over cooked. It was well done, I would prefer the just the breast, med rare. My guest had the Paella. Looked visually appetizing but he said it lacked flavor. Was a bit disappointed in the food. Nice atmosphere and excellent genuinely friendly staff.
We had a large group of people, family gathering. The price was good for the excellent quality. Not one person in our party had a bad thing to say after the meal. The service was really attentive to us. I even went and thanked the chief personally for the meal he cooked for me (Ahi Tuna). If you’re at the hotel or in the area I would recommend this restaurant.
We wanted to take our friends to an upscale place with especially good quality food and service. Hemingway’s exceeded our expectations. The service was impeccable and our friends were very picky on their food choices and yet the waiter was extremely knowledgeable and handled them quite well. The ambience was especially nice and made for a wonderful evening.
We were celebrating a birthday with a romantic dinner. The restaurant is beautiful and quiet. We were seated promptly upon arrival and greeted by our server Brad. He was professional, friendly and attentive. We ordered the calamari which tasted good but was slightly over cooked. The paella and the crab cakes were delicious and prepared perfectly.
Hemingway's was a disappointment. The Hotel is beautiful but quite snobby. Service in the bar was poor. They were busy which obviously was a challenge for them. Our waiter was excellent. He was from Hawaii and he made up for the otherwise poor reception. He was as good a waiter as I have ever enjoyed. He foresaw problems and prevented or intervened. The food was good though nothing exceptional.
My family and I came to Hemingway's for a nice dinner after Christmas. My brother and I were taking my parents out as a gift. We had come to Hemingway's a couple times before and were happy with the food and service. It's definitely on the pricey side (my crab cakes were $40!), and although the food is delicious, I'm not sure I would call it a good value. My mom's wagyu burger that was $22 was the cheapest item and may have been among the best tasting at the table. Our server, Mike, was great though.
Overall, a lovely dining experience.
My boyfriend and I had been looking forward to our romantic Christmas Eve dinner at Hemingway's but were severely disappointed at the service and the food quality. 30 minutes had passed before we were able to order and another 30 minutes to get our food. Even the patrons at the table next to us caused a scene because their food had taken over an hour to be delivered to the table and the restaurant was not at max capacity. The steak we ordered was cooked to hard and tasted burnt and the Seafood Paella was one of the worst we've tasted. Our waiter, whose service was not memorable enough to remember his name, was not very attentive. However, the two good thing about the restaurant was Jimmy, the gentleman who served us water and seemed to be present whenever we could not find our waiter and the ambiance.
The food is served on a very hot plate but is cold from hanging around the kitchen counter lights. For a supposed fish based menu the salmon for example was inedible over cooked and covered in a glaze which because of over cooking was horrible. The white wine was to near room temperature for my liking. The shrimp cocktail was tasteless. Orlando has many fine restaurants but sadly this isn’t one of them.
Fabulous experience!!! I usually avoid Hotel Restaurants and can't stress enough how happy I was that I trusted reviews and went to Hemingway's. The chef did a fabulous job with fresh ingredients. We had the crab cakes and shrimp scampi. The crab cakes rivaled Charleston's best. I will come back even if I am not staying at the Hyatt in the future.
We have been eating at Hemingways for years, it is an annual restaurant stop for us when we are in Orlando. In the past we have considered it one of our favorite restaurants. This year we all agreed some thing has changed. They ran out of one of their best entree items on the menu
( duck)- which was strange as we had a 7pm reservation. There was too much spice added to one of their meals - drowning out the taste of the seafood and our greatest complaint the service was so S L O W. It took us three hours to get through dinner !? Our waitress- aware of our annoyance brought us a small appetizer as a means to remedy our frustration but...given there were few people dining we find the slow service problem a bit baffling. My hope is they can address some of these issues as the setting is quite a lovely place to eat and I know the staff works hard to provide excellent service.
I often choose Hemingway’s for business dinners. Food and service are exceptional. We were a party of six. They were not particularly busy this particular evening but still set us in a separate area vs seating all guests together. It is not a loud restaurant. You can actually have conversation that all can participate in. They never disappoint
