Definitely didn’t live up to the reviews. Maybe because Chef Raymond had the night off. We issues with two out of three of our dishes. We were subsequently made to feel very uncomfortable.
D'Arcy was a wonderful host. The restaurant was very cozy and the service was excellent.
It was fun speaking to Darcy and Chef Ray and as usual the wait staff was very attentive.
Always great ... the best restaurant in the Sarasota area!
Euphemia Haye has become a must dine whenever we visit Longboat Key. The food and service are always top shelf and the atmosphere is quaint without being cutesy, plus it is such a relief to be able to have a conversation at the table without having to shout as in some of the newer restaurants .
Our meal was excellent ( salad, grouper, veal.....all specials). The sauces were perfect and the upper level dessert assortment is not be be missed. Somewhat expensive and well worth it
We were so looking forward to going here for my daughter’s birthday. When I made the reservation I stated that. When they called the day before to confirm I again asked about her birthday. They said they were aware. Well, they did nothing. I felt bad for her. The food and service was good but so surprised that a high end restaurant would confirm with you with expectations of something of a surprise. She came especially for this occasion from Orlando. Beautiful place but so disappointed.
Still one of the nicest restaurants in the greater Sarasota area. Small, comfortable dining rooms, wonderful menu beautifully executed, friendly and knowledgeable staff. May it be here another 30+ years.
Unique ambiance- very romantic and a bit funky. An old fashioned restaurant that served very good food at premium price. Steak au poivre and grilled fish were excellent.
Wonderful as I was told by a colleague.
Great restaurant....always a fun time. Our favorite restaurant on LBK.
Perfect choice for an excellent meal in a classic, old style fine dining restaurant
Has been our favorite Sarasota restaurant for over 25 years. It is charming, unpretentious, old Florida with wonderful food. What more is there?
We love it here, food is great and the service is wonderful. My husband and I make sure we come here at least twice during our winter stay. When friends visit, this is the first place we reserve a meal.
Another very good meal, in one of our go-to restaurants. Try the snail or gnocchi appetizers...and definitely the signature caesar salad..and leave room for dessert upstairs. Always a dining treat.
Asked for the garden room on the window and received it. Great service and fun menu. Had the duck- nice and crispy but sauce was bland . My wife had fish which was good. We loved our split Caesar salad. Desserts were tempting but we shied away. Quantity of food is a lot- ended up taking a lot home. It was all good for lunch the next day.
Visit from family
Best food in Florida and the US. Our all- time favorite.
I don't know how anyone could give a bad review to Euphemia Haye. The ambience begins at the front door, the food is fantastic and the service excellent.
Our server was David downstairs, he was an exceptional waiter, attentive but not overbearing or too frequent. His knowledge of the food and recommendations were bang on. The restaurant itself is quaint with old world charm and manner. Upstairs is a little more lively with a fantastic selection of deserts. I believe our waitress was Gabby, again bang on for service and knowledge.
For dinner I had lost duck with raspberry walnut sauce, my date had grouper with mango. Full marks to the chef and the presentation.
Great dinner signature dish Duck music and dessert upstairs in the lounge area
From the moment we walked into the restaurant, we knew we were in for a unique dining experience. The food and service were excellent, and the second floor dessert bar provided a cozy, relaxed environment. We will certainly dine there next year!
We try to dine at Euphemia whenever we come to Longboat. We know the food will always be incredible. Pour server was friendly, attentive and efficient. My husband ordered the swordfish special which he highly recommended. I enjoyed the pistachio encrusted snapper. A tasty treat!
A lovely place set in tropical foliage. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
I had been 25 years since I had their famous roast duck and had tried duck many times, many places and never could it compare to Euphemia Hay. Also they still hand make a Ceasar salad which is Fabulous!!! So delighted to spend the evening of my birthday with my husband in a most charming place. The Loft upstairs had amazing music and we had delicious Key Lime pie which is very different here on the island than anywhere else.
One of my favorite places in the Sarasota area. Reminds me of home!
Euphemia never disappoints. Quality food service and atmosphere. Must dine when in longboat key.
Elegant setting for special occasion. Dessert bar upstairs is a must.
Amazing!!! All I can say is that every night since we’ve been to Euphemia Haye, I’ve been craving my dinner!! Key west fish with pistachio crust and mashed potatoes nd creamed spinach!!! Absolutely wonderful!
Disappointing. Service was so,so. Expensive.. Peppered steak was not to my liking, but that could just be me. Duck was good. Upstairs dessert of banana foster could have been done table side for the price, but was not. Brought out in stained metal dishes that looked like they were previously used to bake in, ya know that used cookie sheet look? Don’t know if we will be back. I remember last year was great.
Celebrated my wife’s birthday , she had the snapper, I had the peppered steak , both outstanding .
The swordfish was excellent, and after we had a cocktail in the bar and listened to a great jazz pianist. The crowd after 7:30 was more my age so it was nice to not be with a bunch of blu hairs at 9:30. Dessert is the best, all mad in house. The owner checked on us (he’s also the chef) and we had a nice chat. Can’t really beat it for staying on the key.
Love love love this restaurant. I have been wanting to make the trip down from the St Pete area for awhile now and final got to check out Euphemia Haye! It did not disappoint! I will be back!
David was our waiter...he makes you feel at home by recalling our previous visits. The food was excellent and there were no mistakes. A lovely restaurant that I highly
Recommend. Moly and Whitey King
We've been coming for years and this visit did not disappoint. A special place to be sure. This time was our 25th wedding anniversary and both of us chose this place over many others as the 'special event' site for dinner. It is unique in ambiance, good food and quiet enough to talk and listen. It was recommended to us by another couple over 20 years ago and it has always been worth the trip from Tampa.
Was recommended and we were delighted on all fronts! Great service, wonderful food...good times.
Charming restaurant. Excellent food and service. Would definitely recommend!
