Most amazing fresh Cuban food. Authentic cuisine with real flavors you would find in Cuba, from the app’s to the deserts. If your not eating here while in Asheville your missing out on a one of a kind gem.
Great roof top dining ! Enjoyed the empanadas, vaca frita and the best Cuban sandwich ever!
Terrible service and the paella had little flavor.
Unfortunately, they were out of some items on the menu that the people in my party wanted to order. The service was slow.
Delicious as always. The temperature and weather was perfect for a roof top brunch.
This is a basic, hotel restaurant with no ambiance. It will do if you're starving and aren't willing to wait for an available table at one of the many other restaurants in town.
Fabulous food, environment and service. Would go back again when in Asheville!
Our waitress Helen was amazing!
Food was great, mountain views spectacular from the outside deck. Loved it! Will return. Plus, easy to valet park there.
We sat on the roof top deck, and were able to view the most spectacular sun set. The service was very good, and the food was absolutely delicious. The menu offered a wonderful array of options, and we had a very enjoyable experience.
We hope the next time we dine here the food is better. Concept and ambiance are great.
Very good food!
We highly recommend Hemingway's Cuba! Everything we ordered was prepared to perfection. The pork chops are not to be missed! The server was pleasant and professional. We definitely will return!
Food (Cuban sandwich) was amazing! Service was slow but definitely appreciate the respect for social distancing. Will definitely be back when we return to Asheville.
The service was much better than our previous visit and paella were excellent.
Would visit you again also your sister restaurant Isa's
Love love love EVERYTHING! A favorite of mine and I always bring my work and out of town guests here for the great food and amazing panoramic view ! Great iutdooor seating area
Sat outside on the patio, beautiful night. Food was fantastic. Will definitely be back on our next trip to Asheville.
The food was great but the server ignored us for most of the night. I would still go back.
We had made a reservation well in advance and got to the restaurant and were told the that they were closed. They closed the day before due to unforeseen circumstances but did not have the courtesy to let us know. This was supposed to be an anniversary celebration dinner and we couldn't get in anywhere else. Very unprofessional of them to not let us know.
The restaurant didn’t honor the reservation. They even ‘confirmed’ despite the fact that they closed for the weekend. They never notified us and simply turned us away after we arrived. Never going back.
Went out of our way to find out the restaurant was closed and they didn’t cancel or let anyone with reservations know they were closed.
I was very excited to be able to make a reservation even though it was much later than I usually eat. When we arrived we couldn’t get off the elevator at the restaurant. We then had to ask the front desk why we couldn’t get off the elevator and they told us the restaurant was closed due to Covid. I understand they have to control over that, but they should have sent a text or used Open Table to notify their guests. Asheville restaurants that are open are not open at capacity and the city was packed this weekend. We had to walk from place to place to be told that there was nothing available. Again, I understand they had to close, but I would have appreciated any indication that I would have to make alternate plans (especially since my reservation was later).
A group of 5 of us were in town for a girls weekend and were excited about having dinner at Hemingway’s. We showed up for our reservation at 8:30pm (reservation was for 9 pm) and were told that the restaurant had shut down for the night several hours earlier. We did not receive a call, email or text to let us know. While we were trying to figure out what was happening there were many people In the same position. Everyone was pretty upset. There we were, 5 ladies walking around Asheville on a Saturday night trying to find a place to eat at 9 pm which was was pretty difficult. I really wish someone had let us know so we could have made other arrangements.
Didn’t event get to eat here. We showed up for our reservation and were told they had closed down. Open table didn’t contact us and the restaurant didn’t reach out. Very disappointing.
They cancelled our reservations and didn't even call us. They were closed and so everyone was turned away at the door on a Saturday night during covid. Inconsiderate to not just call us so we could have made other plans.
Great service, great food, great location
Great place to eat and drink, will come back with friends.
Really Good food! Wonderful server. Fun evening!
Wonderful food and great ambiance especially in the time of covid.
Good food, great ambience!!! Cuban food is authentic.
Requested outdoor seating on reservation form but when we arrived we were told it would be another 1 1/2 hours for an outdoor table.. We had chosen this restaurant specifically for the outdoor dining so were definitely disappointed.
Great food great atmosphere
Best mountain view restaurant in Asheville! Cuban food extraordinarie!
My guests loved it... a nice mix of ages, locals and tourists!
The food and service was excellent. The drinks were not. The ‘old fashioned’ I ordered was perhaps the worst I have ever consumed. I would return again.
Our experience at Hemingway's was stellar from beginning to end. We look forward to returning.
We were expecting this to be nicer for the price point. Requested to sit outside and even made a reservation five days in advance, but we were told this wasn't possible even though there were several open tables outside, many filled with people not even dining. We even said we'd be willing to wait. We specifically made the reservation to see the sunset, so this kind of defeated the purpose. The waitress wasn't very attentive and messed up some of our orders. They were out of some of the dishes we wanted. Food wasn't great and was bland. If seating is such an issue here because of Corona, consider making guests of the hotel a priority? It's not fair to those like us who paid for a stay, but can't even use the rooftop bar because it is open to public. Disappointed.
It was a beautiful evening. The food and service were great! Thank you!
A great place to dine while in Asheville. Good food, service and location.
Cool views of the city and mountains
Really special at sunset!!
Great ropa vieja, vaca Frita. And blk beans and we are from South Fl so know our Cuban food! Rice could’ve been better—was not typical Cuban rice but was fine since the rest was delish!
Server was super sweet and bubbly but got a little in the weeds toward the end of our meal.
Overall this was an excellent way to spend my bday dinner. Highly recommend!!
Samuel was an amazing host for the evening. He made us feel welcome, special, and celebrated. We had such an amazing experience simply because of him. The staff seemed to get along really well, and made the vibe of the place feel light and fun. The gorgeous views of the mountains are out of this world. We enjoyed them from the inside and took pictures outside. The entrees, coffee and dessert were delicious! Great presentation and amazing flavors. We will definitely be back!
