    The single piece of crispy coated basa fish was so thin and small on the fish tacos, that I wasn't even sure I was tasting fish at all (once I got the middle, that is). It could have just been fish oil with breading for all I knew. It was humorous, yet sad to look at, and disappointing to eat and then have to pay for.

    A good standby restaurant. It is always open. The upper patio deck has been covered in so is very pleasant on hot days. Food is always fresh and nicely presented. Servers are young and friendly. Depending on how busy it is service can be on the slower pace which was fine for us as we were in no hurry.

    Two stars but only because the lamb curry was excellent and the server was super nice. Ordered the pad thai as well and two kids meals. Fish and shrimp was mega overcooked in the pad thai and there was possibly more peanuts than noodles in the dish. As I mentioned, the lamb curry was great but the broccoli and carrots served with it were terrible - undercooked and unseasoned. I can't believe I paid $10 for a kids grilled cheese meal when the sandwich looked that bad but that's what you do when your kid wants it. Chicken tenders were ok. I tasted their fries and they're just as bad as well. Ordered a cocktail with my meal and was encouraged by the server to try a different one than my original request which turned out to be nice but experienced sticker shock when the bill came for the unexpected charge of $8 more than the peach lemonade I wanted. The meals also came out at weird times - we placed the kid's food order first (easily five minutes before our mains) and our mains arrived before the kid's food did. We couldn't eat right away as we didn't have cutlery and asked two separate times for ice in the scotch. We were sent home with a free dessert for the troubles, a cheesecake that was yummy.

    Was pretty disappointed with our experience. We used to really enjoy it here. We had a table for 8 on Father’s Day. 4 adults and 4 kids. First they gave our table to someone else (corrected it). Then, after we placed our orders they told us the system was down and they couldn’t predict when our food would come. Didn’t bring water or drinks for over 40mins. We ordered at noon and got served at 1:40. Other people came, sat, never got served and left. They brought out wrong orders for us and the kids. The kids spaghetti was essentially noodles in a watered down broth. It was very unappealing to the little ones (and to the adults) . Minor things wrong with the other orders and I realize the system outage couldn’t be helped… but still. Shouldn’t there be a back up plan when this happens??. Not sure I’ll be back.

    Our server forgot part of our order (knew he would as he did not write it down). There were also issues with your ordering system which resulted in a long wait for our lunch. Was a disappointing experience.

    We ordered sticky toffee pudding....however the chef forgot to add the stick toffee syrup so made it just cake and icecream. The rest of the food was fabulous and ambiance great...and we got the seating of choice.

    Ordered pad Thai with tofu only for $19.00. Pad Thai came with no tofu. Server brought some later but it was too late and then the tofu was extra and had to be taken off the bill. Pad Thai with nothing but noodles was $19.00. Not acceptable At lunch.

    We enjoyed a nice meal on the 2nd balcony @ Hemingway"s. They have a good selection of beer on tap. My husband had the clam chowder to start. He had the jambalaya which he enjoyed I had the sweet potato & Chickpea curry with mango chutney delicious. We shared a sticky toffee pudding with French vanilla ice cream which was amazing with cappuccino. I had not been since the pandemic they have wonderful food.

    Overall the group consensus was that the food was just ok. The menu attracted us initially because of the wide variety of options; unfortunately the food did not deliver. That being said, it’s a nice spot to hangout for drinks and the vibe is great.

    beautiful location but food was not up to standard. Toast was wonder bread with potatoes that were 1-2 days old. We asked for over medium eggs and they were very runny. Fish tacos were absolutely disgusting. The fish was also a few days old and had been refried. Shredded cheese and lettuce did not match the description. Very disappointing

    I had a fairly long sliver of steel in my mash potatoes. It was in my moth before I discovered it and I was so lucky i didn't swallow it. The waiter was mildly apologetic when I asked him to return it to the kitchen but I heard no apology from the kitchen. Neither was the meal taken from the bill as it should have been. I doubt i will return any time soon

    Place is great. I went to watch the Champions League game and they had a lot of big tvs. The only downside really was the glare on the TV. Really made it difficult to pay attention. But factoring that out, I would come here again.
