Great experience and awesome view! Enjoyed the food and selection. Would probably go back here
My wife and I dined here for Sunday brunch and the view from our table was absolutely spectacular. Our food and drinks exceeded our expectations, but our service was a little on the slow side (in all fairness our waiter appeared to be new and other tables nearby seemed to be well attended to). We can't wait to come back and try their dinner menu. One of the best views in Asheville! 5 stars all the way
Sammie was amazing and the food and drinks exceeded our expectations!
The food, drinks and service is top notch! Well worth the wait! You will not be disappointed!!
Services was excellent! We sat inside table spacing was achieved by having large teddy bears placed at tables very creative. The Cuban sandwich is excellent. Also there were several steak dishes that were great. The wings as an appetizer are excellent.
Table was ready. Server was knowledgeable and friendly. Service was fast.
LOVED LOCATION AND ATMOSPHERE! FUN PLACE!
Ugh. That’s all.
I’m not sure if the lack of attention to detail was due to the time of day (end of brunch on a Sunday), but I might think twice before coming back here. As soon as we walked into the restaurant inside the hotel, the carpet at the entrance was filthy. Our table was “clean” when we were sat down, but there were remnants of maple syrup and food. As we walked to our table the floor underneath other tables had food scraps and it was inevitable to notice since the lighting coming from the floor to ceiling windows lit up the restaurant. Our Cuban coffee was cold, but the guava and cheese pastry was delicious. The food was good but I was truly set in an environment that I truly couldn’t enjoy my meal during COVID-19 times. I hope a manger is able to read this and make changes accordingly.
Great rooftop- not busy at all for Sunday brunch. Awkwardly quiet at times.
For the price of ribs, they were pretty mediocre and under seasoned!!
Not sure if the fried gnocchi worked with this dish as well.
Also, some heaters around the rooftop eating areas would be great. We had to choose to either be freezing or enjoy the view.
Otherwise, our waiter Samuel was great and I’m sure I would be back during the summer.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We take great pride in our food, drinks, and ability to create a positive experience. We are working on correcting the issues of limited heaters around the rooftop that you encountered. We are more than pleased to hear that you will be returning again in the summer. Looking forward to you giving us an opportunity to show you our flair!
Bday and engagement celebration
We came on a Saturday for a late lunch. Although we were part of the later lunch crowd, we did not feel rushed at all by the staff. The waitress ordered my mimosa just how I liked it (light OJ) and the view was incredible. My husband loved the Cuban food and flavor. We will be back.
I ordered a steak palomino that was supposed to be a sirloin. It was about 1/8 of an thick. Not only that, but the seasoning was so heavily lime flavored, it was almost inedible. My husband ordered snapper and it was poorly prepared. This was our visit and will be our last. If I could give it 0 stars, I would.
Well run. Great mojitos.
Note this is in the Cambria hotel. Felt a little like a chain or buffet. But food was good. Service was slow. Views of the city were great.
Thank you for coming into Hemingway’s Cuba and taking the time to share your feedback. We appreciate the compliment about the beautiful views of the city. We sincerely apologize that the service did not match your expectations. We hope you give us another chance to show you that the atmosphere of Hemingway’s is authentic and appealing.
Brunch was fantastic. Service was good. Great atmosphere and location. The patio still had snow on it but I can imagine during warmer days, it’s great.
Christmas Day dinner was great!
Christmas Day family meal. Enjoyed everything.
Restaurant food is excellent. One of my favorite places to dine. Service has always been very good. Easy access to the restaurant. Valet parking in the garage and when you leave you text the garage and your car is waiting for you when you exit the elevator in the hotel. Restaurant on a busy night can be loud. That is the only negative I can find with the restaurant.
We went for Christmas Eve dinner. Food was very good. Start with the pulpo and mejillones, both are delicious. We did a few of the festive cocktails and they were well balanced. The staff was lovely. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and helpful when it came to choosing between various menu items. We will definitely be going back again.
Wonderful dinner and service from Joe! Dined outdoors on rooftop, able to hear live music too!
Had dessert and delicious cuban coffee by fire!
Our server was the most fun waiter that I’ve had in a very long time with dining experiences. I definitely give Hemingways an 11/10 for this visit. I’ve been to this restaurant before but this experience was just overall awesome. Definitely a great way to spend my friends arrival home from the military.
Good atmosphere beautiful view. Food is pretty good little expensive but not outrageous
Overpriced for what you get, the service was okay, but distracted and aloof - we had indicated it was our anniversary and nary a word. Would not go there again.
Good food and we ate inside, but could have eaten out on the rooftop patio, but wasn't quite warm enough for the party, but other folks were out there. Nice place!
Always amazing! We did not anticipate the brunch menu...and we have our favorite dishes on the other menus. The server went out of her way to help us get what we came craving! She was so gracious! I wish I remembered her name to give her a shout out!
Alyssa was a great host and was very attentive! She answered all of our questions and we could see how hard she works even with almost being ready to give birth. She was such a sweet person and the food was amazing! I had the breakfast burrito with the guava pastry while my boyfriend had the Cuban breakfast with the ham croquettes. All of the food came out hot and was so delicious! We will definitely be here again next time we are in Asheville!
Great service, fantastic food, warm and vibrant ambiance. Will definitely be returning.
Absolutely excellent!!! Definitely would be back.
The service was great and the order came out promptly. It was fresh, hot and well paired. The value was very good. No wonder this place is so highly recommended. We will definitely be back.
My friend who I went with is from Cuba and she said it was 100% authentic! We ate there for Breakfast and Dinner. Service was ok but I think they had less people serving because of Covid but they all were polite and nice, just had to wait for somethings. I will for sure be back
Our waitress was amazing!! Everything was perfect.
Great Cuban food with a stunning view of the mountains. Highly recommend getting there around sunset.
We were celebrating our anniversary so just wanted to have a nice long quiet dinner and it was everything and that. The food and service were both excellent.
We live in Miami and decided to take our nephew for a good Cuban dinner in Asheville. We were very pleased with the quality of food and the service and the ambiance. The food was wonderful and our server was very pleasant.
Thank you very much for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed the food here at Hemingway's Cuba and received great service. We look forward to welcoming you back during your next visit to Asheville!
Always a great experience
It was probably the best food we have ever had. The muscles with chorizo were perfect but the octopus was incredible. Both entrees were so good. Really an incredible place. Asheville for food is better than I ever expected.
Thank you very much for your awesome review. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed the food here at Hemingway's Cuba and appreciate the kind compliments. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
The waitress was awesome, the food was amazing. The ambiance wasnt that great. Nor was the person who brought our food out - the guy had hair piled on the top of his head messy, dirty finger nails and was rude. He didn't speak, some of the food fell off the plate and he didn't do anything but walk away. He basically ruined a overall good review.
Food surpassed expectations! Service was good and drinks were great. Will return !
Thank you very much for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed the food, drinks, and receive great service. We can't wait to see you again soon!
