Have loved this place for many years. The food never disappoints and it's different from the average place. Nice service that reminds us of what fine dining used to be like.
We liked the food and service there!
Love this restaurant. Service good! Food is great! Great location. I had lobster roll. My husband had potato crusted grouper and it was excellent!
Delicious. Loved atmosphere nice experience
We had a great waiter and the food was excellent!
Usually a 5 star experience. However, April 25th was an exception. I did not get the area I requested, terrace table small and does not manage plate sizes, shift manager and waiter apparently overwhelmed, next day lmovm for manager to call but was not returned.
The food is exquisite and inspite of this experience, I will be back.
The worst service I have ever had. We were seated on time. Our dink order was taken promptly. We didn’t see our server for 45 minutes. Waiter implied soup or salad was included with entree. Nope. Friend ordered a gin martini with olives. Came on the rocks with lime. Food was ok
We have been at this restaurant numerous times and it has always been an excellent experience. The service is fantastic as well as the food. This is place is well known so make a reservation.
The food, service and ambiance was fabulous!
Came for my sons birthday!!! The food was amazing and the stuff was was incredible!! Love the place. I Come here few times a month. For my son was the first. He loved the choice of the restaurant and he loved the food. We wanted something simple and relaxed and that what we got. Everything was perfect !!!
Outstanding selection of food and wine. Very attentive and professional service.
Cafe L'Europe is the best restaurant in St. Armands Circle. The interior has the feel of a true European cafe - wonderful ambiance! The waitstaff is incredibly professional, friendly and efficient and the food is outstanding! I highly recommend this wonderful place. One caution: probably not a good choice for children, tho I can't say that from experience. On the two occasions I ate there in the past two weeks I never saw any children.
Great as always. Best food and service we’ve experienced anywhere in the Sarasota area.
Great evening with friends. Alex is excellent. Everything was perfect.
Slow service food was not hot.
Food was not well prepared. Osso bucco was overcooked and tough. Cesar salad which indicated it included anchovies had none. Wine was overpriced.
Four of enjoyed every aspect of our dining experience at Cafe l’Europe.
We enjoyed Oysters Rockefeller, escargot, French onion soup, filet, veal piccata, Ron’s bolognese, and potato crusted grouper. Each was cooked perfectly and delicious. Bother decaf and regular cappuccino were also terrific.
Never a disappointing experience at this restaurant however, this time we had a new waiter and his name was Nick and he was delightful. We ordered the crusted grouper and osso bucco and both were exceptional. The lamb shank literally melted in my mouth — that’s how tender the meat was.
Our waiter was Nick... He did a great job with my guest during a Birthday Celebration.
Hope to go back the next time I visit Sarasota.
The meal was fantastic. Too bad you sat us at the worst table in the restaurant- at one point people were lined up at the bar
and pushing against our table. My husband wanted to walk out!
Sitting inside has always been enjoyable, but this time we were seated outside on the patio (sidewalk). The service was very sporadic and no one seemed to know who was assigned to our table. After a half-hour my husband actually had to go inside to find someone to take a drink order. Water and bread were never refilled and the waiter never came by to see how the meals were and if we needed anything.
Wonderful family dinner! Everything was so delicious. Especially the chateaubriand and short ribs. The bananas foster was the perfect ending to an amazing meal!
Always a great meal at Café LeEurope. Alfredo is a very attentive server. Very nice time as usual
I celebrated my 40th birthday at cafe l’Europe 31 years ago and our meal Sunday was just as awesome!! Thank you for your delicious ness and consistency
Enjoyed a beautiful Birthday celebration here- highly recommend the Dover Sole!
Overall broad menu, great food and attentive service; what you would expect from a high end restaurant.
Mathew went out of his way to accommodate us at an outdoor table and Carlos was an exceptional waiter. The place was extremely busy because it’s spring break however we still felt the same courteous and relax service we always feel when we dine here. Food, setting and service truly makes it a delightful experience.
Service was very good
The food was delicious and beautifully presented
Always a great choice for a romantic date with my wife.
Several options for seating. And the food was fabulous!
Thank you for the great rating! We look forward to serving you again soon! Best, Persefoni N. General Manager
Great food! Great service!
Thank you for the 5 stars!!! We hope to serve you again soon! Best, Persefoni N. General Manager
Dinner was fabulous. Can not complain about the food, but the service was a little slow and the guy on the piano was too loud.
First, let me say this is our favorite St.Armand’s restaurant and we will return again. This was the first time in years we have returned a meal anywhere. Ironically, we ordered the same entree and when they arrived, my husband’s was not garnished at all which should have tipped us off about the kitchen hurrying. They quickly remedied the situation. Then we started our meal only to discover our grouper was lukewarm at best. Sent back entrees. Once again, when my husband was served, no tomatoes garnishing the top. Sent back and remedied. The manager offered us Banana Foster,but we don’t eat desserts. I asked if restaurant had changed owners and it had not. He then decided to comp our meals, which we appreciated and was wise on his account. The restaurant wasn’t as busy as usually when we visit. I think they are challenged to find quality staff coming out of Covid. We will try again next year when we visit the area.
The fanciest and "most oldschool" of the restaurants on St. Armand's. Excellent food, much of it prepared tableside...and well done at that. Hard to find anymore. Definitely a good spot for an important meal. Enjoy!
Thank you for your awesome review! We definitely love to create a memorable dining experience and provide the old school white gloved service that doesn't exist in many restaurants anymore. We hope to serve you soon! Best, Persefoni N. General Manager
Excellent food. Never ever had a bad meal. Our server was super.
Very nice lunch great ambiance but during season and during lunch services was slow to poor after 16 minutes we were served and thinks improved greatly from there
We had a good time with friends. Food was. Little disappointing compared to our last visit.
