Euphemia Haye - Longboat Key, FL Ratings and Reviews
We had our wedding night dinner here almost 10 years ago and it was amazing. Tonight, since we were staying in the area, decided to have dinner here, and again, amazing. The ambiance, service and the FOOD, delicious! A wonderful place to have a memorable time. Thank you for another fantastic memory!
I have been going to Euphemia Haye for close to four decades. To me the food is the star. It is artfully prepared and consistently excellent. In my opinion their signature dishes, which are Peppered Steak and Crispy Duck, are simply the best you can get. My favorite is the peppered steak, and it has no rival. I have never had one anywhere that compares to it. My wife loves the crispy duck. We do glance at the menu, but we always seem to order the same things because they are that good. The décor is relaxing and elegant, yet unpretentious. The feeling is that of a true French country inn. Their key staff have been there forever, and we know many by name. They have always been friendly and professional. The Caesar salads are prepared at a station in view from most tables, and are wonderful. It is expensive, so we reserve it for special occasions. It is one of our absolute favorite restaurants.
We had a wonderful meal at Euphemia Haye. For appetizer we shared the Chef's Pate and then a Caesar Salad with anchovies. Both were excellent and the portions were ample. Our entrees were Pork Osso Buco and Famous Roast Duck. My wife likes her duck real crispy which it was and it was cooked to perfection. We also ordered a side of roasted brussel sprouts. We ended the meal with Banana Cream Pie that we shared. All in all, an excellent meal. We will dine there again next time in Sarasota.
Delightful and delicious! Loved my wine choice. Conundrum white. The black grouper was flavorful and the desserts were as much fun to look at as to eat. The wait service was perfectly attentive, informative and gracious. And ah... the ambiance... an island setting... It's one of my favorite places to dine on the islands.
We celebrated my husband's birthday with friends. The service by Glenn was outstanding as was every dish we had. The pepper steak has been on the menu forever and is still as wonderfully flavorful as it has ever been. There is a great selections of wine, too. The rooms are decorated eclectic and not too many tables per room. Upstairs in the Haye Loft, the dessert table will surprise you no matter how many times you've been there. Every night there are amazing desserts. Our group shared 4 and not a crumb was left. DELICIOUS!
Enjoyed our experience - food was excellent, the sever was very attentive as well as other support people - I love to see well-trained staff. And we saved room for the dessert room upstairs at which our waiter held us a table so there was no wait. Also I left a note on my Open table reservation asking if there was a cancellation, could be please be moved to an earlier time (9 was all they had on schedule) and the management called me back and got us in for 7 since we were only 2.
We go here annually for our wedding anniversary and we have never been disappointed in anything. The food is phenomenal, the service is above and beyond, and they go out of their way to make to evening memorable. I only wish I could go more often. thank you to staff for making our night fun.
One of the best! Ambiance and service were wonderful but the food - fantastic! And just when I thought it couldnt get any better, we were escorted upstairs to the dessert room. An incredible place to spend a special evening - not to be missed if you are in the area. Can't wait to return!
What a charming restaurant to share with that someone special. The snapper was unbelievably delicious. The filet was more to the medium rare side than it was medium well. The potato pancake was too good not to share. Brian was attentive and made great recommendations. While reservations are recommended, we have no reservations about coming back again.
We normally love this restaurant but this time we felt we were treated very differently due to having our 4 year old granddaughter with us. We were seated in a room away from the rest of the customers and the waiter was not the normal helpful server we experienced in previous visits.
This restaurant is one of the hidden treasures within the Sarasota-Bradenton-Longboat Key area. Great food, great ambience and the deserts ... you just have to experience them! It's a great place for all occasions. Make the drive out to LBK, and experience this wonderful place. You won't be disappointed!
