It had been a long time since my last visit to Euphemia Haye. We weren't disappointed. The food was very tasty and service stellar. David was so good, efficient but non-obtrusive. We were so please with the creative cuisine and overall experience. We will certainly be back.

We've been going to Euphemia Haye for 20+ years, and it's always fabulous. Every part of the meal is wonderful, they modify as per the customer's preference, the staff is top notch. If I could afford it, I'd go there every week. And they remembered my mom by name, even though she hadn't been in for 5 years. Just go.

Lovely setting with great service and attention to details. Usually one of our favorite local restaurants, but dinner was less than spectacular tonight. Maybe an off night? Duck and its stuffing were dry and disappointing. We will be back, though!

This was an anniversary dinner and they went out of their way to help us celebrate. They reserved a window table and provided excellent, attentive service. The chef prepared a special off-menu dish to accomodate our vegetarian diet.

Wonderful restaurant to dine at Christmas. A fabulous menu with seasonal specialties such as roast goose...where do you find that anymore?
Our cocktails were well made and our server Michael was terrific. Thanks for your suggestion that we split the Caesar salad. Well done!
We had a very nice meal in a very cozy gem of a dining room. We will be back.

This is one of the finest restaurants on Longboat Key and, for that matter, in most of Sarasota. It is elegant without being stuffy and every item on the menu is superb. You can always tell how well a restaurant is run when you go on a holiday - in this case Christmas Day - when they are fully booked from open to close. This is an exceptionally well run restaurant with all the food coming out perfectly, including some substitutions we made to our main course. We never felt rushed and there was more than ample time between courses for us to relax and enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant. Our waiter "David L" could not have been more accommodating throughout the meal, including assisting the one vegetarian at the table selecting the perfect components for a perfect meal. This is one restaurant I can always count on to always exceed all my expectations.

The food and service were excellent. We had been to the restaurant previously. So we knew what to expect as far as service and quality of the meals. Pricing id a bit high for anything other than a special occasion for us.

Very prompt sometimes rushed service. nice ambience. She had green tomatoes fantastic, I has sushimi average. She was told that they "just checked" and the daily fish special had not come in, so that was changed, hard to imagine they would not have know that beforehand. Her fish was way over creamed could not taste the snapper. I had the most bland sweetbreads I have experienced in a longtime. The service certainly was attentive, however the push to sell dessert upstairs was a little aggressive and persistent. I would not go back there are other places more worthy of the time and money.

The good was very tasty and the wine list was rather robust and sophisticated. The downstairs room is good for dining but a bit small in case there is a large group. Reservation recommended. The upstairs room has live music and delicious homemade desserts!! Worth the price and drive.

Always make an effort to go here on our vacation. Have been going for over 20 years and have never been disappointed. Great dessert experience too. Love the Haye Loft with a reduced menu, but same good service and tasty food, drinks and desserts.

This is our yearly go to restaurant for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. Great menu and service. Welcoming staff and friendly wait staff, very efficient, nice upstairs loft/bar often with music, pleasant surroundings, knowledgeable bar tender. Highly recommend this well established restaurant.

My experience at Thanksgiving was disappointing.
First, I was seated in a very loud room with a large party. I asked to move and they said no, I waited but then asked to move upstairs or leave, then they moved us. I had the duck. The meat was dry but I guess because it was a smaller portion. Apple pie
Was outsmding. I eat here about twice a year and will continue to do so but not on the holidays.

Amazing little restaurant that never disappoints...the owner chef came around and made sure everything was ok personally...our waiter was great....the food amazing...the duck is the best we have ever had...a great dinner with family

Five of us spent $250 on a driver with a car to go to dinner at Euphemia Haye for our annual trip (however four of us just bought houses nearby). The food was outstanding as usual. However the service was horrible for many unacceptable reasons. First of all, we called ahead to see if we could bring our own wine (yes). Corkage fee was not a problem. We arrived 1/2 hour before our reservation but we were seated anyways (early) as they were not busy/full. Our waiter was Clarke, who had an attitude before we even sat down. Clarke took forever to wait on us at any level of service. Was it because we brought our own wine? There was an hour or more between the appetizers and the next course. Clarke RARELY checked on us, asked if we wanted to buy any of the house wine or poured any of the wines that we brought (that was okay. Since we brought it with own own corkscrew we didn't mind pouring our own wine). Our dinner took 2 1/2 hours and we did not have time to order any dessert. In fact, at that point we just asked for our check although we usually go upstairs and spend a lot of money on desserts and after dinner drinks but we had NO TIME because our driver was waiting for us. Our meal was $350 plus tip. Needless to say we were not going to give Clarke our usual 20% tip. As Clarke walked by he yelled out to us that he had not charged a corkage fee for EVERY bottle that we brought with us (were we suppose to add that $20 to his tip??). We will definately be back to Euphemia Haye but the management needs to have a little talk with our waiter, Clarke.

Vacationing on Anna Maria Island for the first time with some idea about where to eat. Euphemia Haye was not on the list but drove past and decided to check out the menu. I'm a sweetbread fan. So, whenever I find a place with sweetbreads, I go .....and was not disappointed. My wife had the snapper and was equally pleased.
Nice wine list.
Liked the place so much, decided to go back 3 nights later.
