All good , food was good drinks were good worth the value
Our waiter was outstanding and very nice!!
The food and service were great. The staff was attentive and the food came to the table quick and hot. Four people dined in 45 minutes so they are all about turning tables without being rude.
What should be clear is this is a hotel restaurant, meaning there is the charm of a authentic Cuban restaurant. You truly feel like you are experiencing good food in a hotel. We sat on the roof and I honestly don’t even recall anything feeling like it could be Cuba but may that is Hemingway’s Cuba.
Hemingway's Cuba was very accommodating to our request for our reservation. We sat on the rooftop which has a very nice ambience. Our service was awesome and our waitress was able to answer each question we had. The food was delicious, especially the churros. I highly recommend Hemingway's!
Loved the food, the environment, and the service! Highly recommend!
Was very pleasant. Everything was great!
Thank you very much for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed dining with us and hope to see you again soon!
There is no more beautiful place in Asheville to have dinner or drinks than the large patio at Hemingway's. The chicken "wings", though small, are delicious & are served with a creamy sauce. My husband loves the crispy Hickory Gap pork. Sadly, they have discontinued their Caesar salad, which was a must have for me. Please, bring it back. Overall, a great place to eat, with stunning views.
We had a wonderful experience at Hemingway’s. The view was great, service was excellent and food delicious. Definitely going back.
Thank you very much for your review. We are thrilled to hear you had a wonderful experience and look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Chicken was raw. Had to return twice.

We can wholeheartedly assure you that your experience is not a reflective of the standard of service we require.
What a wonderful experience! The food and drinks were amazing. Gorgeous view. Our server was perfect, very friendly and helpful and prompt with service. We’d been wanting to visit for a long time and were so glad we did!
Thank you very much for your review. We are so glad you had a wonderful dining experience and look forward to welcoming you back soon!
We went after our elopement ceremony, our server was so sweet and attentive. Food was fast and delicious, and the views were beautiful.
Beautiful views and great service. It’s a must in Asheville!
Thank you very much for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed the views and received great service. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
The food was delicious and came out very quickly. The outside rooftop had plenty of space and was perfectly setup for social distancing. It also has amazing views.
Thank you very much for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed dining with us and hope to see you again soon!
My friends and I came here to celebrate a birthday and loved it! The view was beautiful and the service was great. Definitely recommend!
Food was great. Service was poor. Seemed like servers were very busy and it was difficult to get someone's attention. After our food was received, no one came to see if we needed someone and I could not find anyone available to help.
Hello Mary, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We cannot apologize enough for the service you received upon arriving. We are truly sorry that your experience with us was far less perfect than what we strive for. Please accept our sincerest apologies. We hope you will consider giving us a second chance. We promise you would be treated with the upmost hospitality. We hope to have you back again soon.
Amazing! The views are worth it all.
Yuca fries are a must!
I was quite disappointed. I made a reservation that was accepted through Open Table. I was quite looking forward to the experience and as we arrived at the time of reservation, the restaurant was closed without previous warning from anyone. So perhaps the food is great, but I can't tell. At least, the restaurant needs to let people know of unexpected closure...
I made reservations here on open table, which I really didn't want to do because I like talking to people in person or by phone. And of course the system was messed up and I wasn't able to have my birthday dinner there. Hemingways left a message for me right before I was heading out for the dinner. They said they were closed. I don't know if it was a last minute Covid thing or the system doesn't list the fact that they are closed on Tuesdays (if that's true, open table should have refused my reservation request). I like Hemingway's but this open table process was annoying.
Our server was AMAZING, but they were hugely understaffed, so very slow...
Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are so pleased to hear that your server gave you excellent service during your time at Hemingway’s Cuba. We hope to have you back again soon!
Our service was slow but the wait staff were very friendly. Great view and atmosphere.
Thank you very much for your review and feedback. We hope to see you again soon!
It was our Anniversary which server didn’t check with us about although we even brought a special champagne bottle with us to celebrate. Everything else was good overall except she didn’t offer us to open the bottle or serve it a single time... ceviche didn’t have any taste like at all! Octopus was super good and pineapple salad plus vaca frita.
Not sure if staff was low went at brunch time. Took 45 mins for food to arrive to table. Not impressed at all.

The meat was cold no fresh and no have any Cuban experience,
Hello, 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. Thanks again for stopping in!
Thank you for joining us for this special occasion. We appreciate your great review and look forward to hosting you again soon!
A drink out on the rooftop action along with beautiful views, then relax and enjoy a delicious dinner. I recommend sharing multiple small plates for a wide variety of wonderful food.
Thank you very much for your review David. We are happy to hear you had a great dining experience with us and look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
The most amazing food!! Highly recommend! Must try the empanadas and shrimp garlic small plate.
Thank you very much for your review and recommendation. We are so glad you enjoyed dining with us and look forward to hosting you again soon!
Fantastic service, great food and drinks. Waitress helped us choose starters and all were big hits (plantains, pulls, empandas). We were sitted in the back and didn't have a great view of the mountains from our seats, but the ambience was still nice.
Thank you very much for your review Jordan. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
Such a great experience! The food was AMAZING!!!!!
Thank you for your review Sarah. We are happy to hear you had a great experience and look forward to hosting you again soon!
Amazing service, really enjoyed the food and the staff were all very polite. Great food and drink recommendations and amazing service from our waiter! It was my 21st birthday so all of the ladies I went with were really excited and we all had a great time! Great experience for us all and will definitely be back!
Thank you very much for your review Kendall. We are so glad you and your guests had a wonderful experience during your special birthday occasion. We can't wait to welcome you back again soon!

Went for Brunch /lunch. Sat outside lovely day! Food was delicious!
Thank you for your great review Janice. We can't wait to welcome you back soon!
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!
Hi Ashley, Thank you for taking the time for share your experience with us. Please understand that we do take reservations and that involves an arrangement made in advance to have a table available even if that involves having to not turn customers away but to ask them to wait for the next best availability. We regret that this was your first impression of Hemingway’s and hope that you will return to give us another chance to meet your upmost expectations.
Excellent Cuban inspired brunch. Rooftop outdoor dining nice ambiance
Thank you very much for your review Shane. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
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.
Brooke, Thank you for providing us with feedback about your experience. Please accept our sincerest apologies regarding your reservation time of seating.

Loved it! What a nice surprise
Thank you very much for your review!
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!
Thank you very much for your wonderful review Fred!
