It was my 30th bday and we had a group of 7. Suzanne our waitress and the staff took very good care of us. We had a great table in the middle. The food and drinks were delicious! We had 2 lovely appetizers - crab cakes were melt in your mouth. Then I enjoyed a lovely Caesar salad followed by the grouper with a delightful coconut key lime sauce. Superb! We finished up with a banana tiramisu. A hidden gem behind the Hyatt! Truly enjoyable! Thanks all!!

The crab cake and the calamari were excellent appetizers, I recommend both. I had the shrimp scampi for dinner and really liked it. Service was attentive and the room itself had a nice ambiance. I didn’t realize this was in the Hyatt hotel and got a little lost at first. Mentioning it because it wasn’t clear on open table and I missed the sign driving in. The walk to the restaurant was really pretty and you see the grounds.

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.
