Went for Brunch /lunch. Sat outside lovely day! Food was delicious!
I really enjoyed my breakfast cuban sandwich, but the service was very below standard. We had to wait forever just to place our orders, and there were a number of empty tables in the place. The wait staff was friendly enough, but the service was extremely slow!
Excellent Cuban inspired brunch. Rooftop outdoor dining nice ambiance
I was kinda dissappointed in the service we had on Saturday. It was not that busy but they refuse to move us to another tables that remained dirty for 20 mins. We did not leave the resturant until 9:15. The waitress was trying her best to work as fast as she could but it was hard for her to keep up with everything. I was really excited about this resturant and I was so disappointed.
Loved it! What a nice surprise
Our experience was wonderful from the delightful hostess to the fantastic server. All five of our party thought that the food, the drinks, the service, and the ambiance was exceptional. While busy, the acoustics allowed for relaxed conversation. That made for such a pleasant dining experience. Our favorite Asheville restaurant!
My first time eating Cuban, and I would definitely eat it again! My friends and I were not a fan of the drinks, but we would ABSOLUTELY recommend the food! Our reservation was too late in the evening to enjoy the rooftop due to covid restrictions, but I would definitely come again for that alone!
Amazing! My husband is from Miami and this is real Cuban food!
Enjoyed several of the small plate offerings. The mussels were incredible. Service was good but sometimes slow.
We have been to this restaurant for dinner and it was fantastic but brunch left a lot to be desired. The service was bad from the start. After being sat by the hostess we waited for 15 minutes before our server showed to ask about drinks. This would be a trend for the rest of the meal. When our food came it was run by another server who almost dumped it on us and never stayed long enough for us to ask for salt and pepper and hot sauce. My wife's food was almost cold by the time our server checked on us so we could obtain the items we needed. The menu had plenty of choices if we were looking for hotel breakfast/lunch food but we were looking for brunch at a Cuban/Spanish Restaurant. Putting salsa on a breakfast wrap? You can get that at Taco Bell.
They were not over sat as we are still in the pandemic and restaurants are at half capacity at best and there was plenty of staff so I'm just going to chalk the service issue up to a bad day was being had and move on from there. As good as the food was before I will try dinner again just not brunch.
My husband and I have been to Hemingway's several times; this time was for brunch. The service is consistently pleasant and efficient. The restaurant observes proper pandemic protocols. The brunch menu didn't seem very different from the regular breakfast menu, but the food was hot and attractively presented. The coffee was dark and delicious and the refills were prompt. The decor is clean and modern. Also, my husband and I are both over 70 so we appreciate the valet parking, the elevators, and the comfortable seating.
Amazing food and great rooftop setup, but the service was pretty lousy ... something we had been warned about by friends who have eaten here many times. Surly hostess who was upset that we didn't want to be seated at a crummy table underneath a giant TV next to the elevators when there were plenty of available seats elsewhere in the restaurant. And a waitress who disappeared frequently despite what appeared to be a fairly manageable crowd. Nonetheless, the food is absolutely delicious!
For all the hype it was given it was not worth the experience. The food has been very Americanized and is over priced. The ambiance is very much like a sports bar (not a quiet or romantic/cozy spot) but the service was good. Overall, we were very disappointed.
Great dinner for business group.
The food is excellent, the service was very good and friendly. Great place to eat and have drinks after
Hemingway's is dependable. I have tried several of the entrees but nothing compares to the pork chop. That is where it's at.
Food, drinks and service was outstanding! Highly recommend this place for a wonderful Cuban experience, the El Cubano was delicious!
Thank you very much for your review and recommendation. We are so glad you had a wonderful experience dining with us and look forward to hosting you again soon!
Valentine Day Bruch was delicious. The restaurant is open and clean with lovely views of Asheville and the Grove Arcade. Staff were knowledgable and attentive. We recommend the Bloody Mary.
Thank you very much for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed Valentine's Day Brunch with us and had a wonderful experience. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Inside of a hotel, hostess was not friendly, and food was mediocre. First visit so maybe they were just having an off day

Food and drinks were extremely good and we will definitely be returning. I would have given a 5 star rating but the lighting was extremely bright and brought a more sterile feel to the experience. We would love to have been able to enjoy the patio area but it was too cold. Really looking forward to coming back.

Thank you for your review. We are so glad you had a great dining experience with us. We hope to see you again soon!
The food was just ok. I grew up with Cuban food and in a city that has some of the best Cuban restaurants in the country and I wasn’t impressed. Was hoping for a taste of home but this was expensive and missed the mark.
Ann, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. At Hemingway’s Cuba we strive to bring the same authenticity as you would find in Miami, FL. The main difference is that we put a modern twist on things here in Asheville, North Carolina. We’re sorry to hear that we missed the mark but ask if you would consider coming back so we can have a second chance to better wow you. Thanks so much
