After a long exploring walk around Providence on a beautiful summer day, it was nice to be able to sit in a cold restaurant. Location is good overlooking the river with big windows. They offer kids menu with colour crayons which was nice for our kids. Good selection of food but the taste was just okay, not outstanding

Have lived by shore my whole life and you could not get fresher seafood unless you caught it yourself. Cooked to perfection, I ordered blackened swordfish. Awesome. Very good service and great vibe.

Hemenway's has been around a long time, and for good reason. It is always a pleasant experience with fine food, great service, and a comfortable, quiet(ish) atmosphere. 4 stars, not 5, cuz I can't afford to go very often!

Whenever I am visiting Providence, I MUST go to Hemenway's for dinner. Fine dining at its best! Our waiter was probably the best waiter I ever had. Engaging, friendly, inquisitive of our Providence experience... courteous and informative. He knew the specials inside and out, remembered each order perfectly without writing anything down, filled our glasses before they became empty. Food was tremendous! Lobster bisque and New England clam chowder were very tasty, and the swordfish special was right on the money. Worth every penny for an exquisite dining experience. Even without a reservation, they were quite accommodating.
