Certainly one of Yorkville's most popular destinations. Hemingway's features a large heated patio that's great for looking down on the goings-on along Cumberland Street. You'll find Australian and basic “bar cuisine”, in short a good place for a few drinks after work or skipping-off during work, the high vantage point will let you spot the ... more

Incredible patio to relax, eat & be merry

They have one of the best patios in the city! Love the food too, very affordable and huge drink selection. Gets very busy, especially during dinner and on sunny days.

Great food and drinks at decent value

A Yorkville staple, it can get rocking on the weekends (upstairs), but is also great for appetizers after work. Try the sweet potato fries, but maybe not the deep-fried shrimp. Reasonably priced for Yorkville

Good Patio

This place has a great patio and decent food. The prices are reasonable for Yorkville and it's always busy. Great place in the summer.

Laid back, easy going attitude reigns at Yorkville's dive. Its mainstay is its rooftop patio home to lots o' beer, sticky floors, plastic patio chairs. With no room to move around the bar, mingle your way around big buck business crowd and down to earth celebs without the pretension. Colin Farrell sightings have been known. In the winter, warm up in dim lighting and what looks like 80s cabin... more

Hemingway's rooftop patio (heated in the winter, and cool misted in the summer) is a popular Yorkville spot to meet for drinks after work. The restaurant downstairs also offers upscale bar fair at decent prices and generous portions.

I would give 4/5 based on the fact that they had an awesome misting system that helped on a very hot day.

Drink prices were average.

My friend had the pad Thai which was great. I had the special (catfish) which was average. Service was 4/5.

Only went there for drinks but they service was amazing. Laura was a great server and bartender. Very attentive even though the were slammed. I never say with an empty glass. Best service I had the entire trip to Toronto. Well worth the hike up to Yorkville.

High expectations, massive disappointment. C'mon it's Yorkville. Atmosphere was great, nice patios all levels. I got some pasta that looked terrible, felt like they threw something together quick time since it took so long. Guess it was party my fault, if I truly wanted pasta, shoulda went next door to Dimmi... more

Business Description from the Web
February 25, 2013

Hemingways has established itself as the famous hot spot and rooftop patio to enjoy drinks and good company any night of the week. It is a conscious effort on the part of the owners to bring a little bit of New Zealand to Toronto. Hemingways is the place where you'll find Hollywood's elite gathered while in town. The multi-level establishment houses three bars serving up a selection of beers... more

Tucked away in the heart of Toronto's Yorkville neighbourhood is this double-decker, roof-top patio (heated in winter and misted in summer). The popular patio and bar is a great place to meet for a night on the town or a drink after work with friends.
