Hemmingway's is tastefully executed. The French food is fabulous, consistently good and the service is even better. The setting is simple, small and attractive with character. We were here for brunch that also provides relaxing live music. For brunch, in addition to champayne and other drinks, patrons order their main course plus they have a buffet table where they offer numerous fresh fish, fresh fruit, pastries, salads, etc. While they do not have parking they have valet service. We'll be back!

The restaurant easily accommodated our group of 20. I had made arrangements in advance to reserve tables for an 11:30 lunch. The service was excellent and attentive. The room was pleasant. The food was nicely prepared and presented.

Very charming restaurant in downtown oak park, felt like we were In Europe.
We were looking for lighter fare, this wasn’t the place. A lot of traditional French dishes. Would definitely return to have a fancy meal. Great service and wine selection!

Nice outdoor seating in good weather. Food is good and not run of the mill. Wait staff is efficient. Try the Cuban sandwich. It is wonderful

Weekday lunch for 2 ladies. We were greeted cordially and shown to a table in a back room. Menus, water and a loaf of crusty French bread with butter came promptly. Then we were forgotten until my companion went over to the bar to accost a waiter and ask to be waited on. We ordered; the quiche du jour for me, an omelet for her, both with a side of fresh fruit. They came in due course. The quiche was a sizable wedge, lovely and light with a good crust, not at all soggy...but it was still cold in the middle. My tea came in a little pot which was not offered to be replenished altho my friend got her coffee cup refilled several times. She said her omelet was excellent. The fruit was fresh and tasty and there was quite a large amount of it: different berries and melon chunks plus a bit of pineapple.

Bottom line: food was good, service was a bit sloppy. Lunch for 2 came in at about $38 before tip without dessert or alcohol.
