We aat outside and that was the best part. The service was good, but the food? No. Short ribs were half fat. Risotto wasn't risotto but a weird rice. My salad was nothing special and the potatoes were raw. Wouldn't go there again. Way overpriced.
The Potato encrusted grouper had zero flavor. The best part was the shrimp served table side.
Celebrated our wedding anniversary and were treated royally from start to finish. Food was exceptional and plentiful and the complimentary dessert (duly inscribed!) was a really nice touch. Also upgraded our wine selection for free, which was incredibly generous. We were made to feel special throughout. Highly recommended.
Off night ...very quiet ...only two other couples present... Grouper and short ribs not up to par from previous visit...not sure we will be back as there are just too many other great places around the area...a little disappointing.
The setting is great. The food is delicious. Try the tableside shrimp! But what made our experience was the maitre de/host. From getting us a great table, to communicating to us when it would be ready, to ensuring someone took drink orders stat when our server was slammed, and checking on our meal- he did a fabulous job. We’ll be back!
the atmosphere service and food were all excellent i am glade the restaurant was near full capacity. visiting g from PA where restaurants are limited to 25% occupancy is depressing. i will definitely be back next time i am in sarasota
Always consistently wonderful food and great house wine
Cafe L'Europe never disappoints. Dinner, service & ambiance were as they always have been, excellent. Their attention to detail makes it one of the best in the area.
We’ve been dining here for over 30 years. As always, it was wonderful. Cafe L’Europe is a local treasure.
This restaurant doesn’t disappoint. From the very accommodating Host to the servers. Our server Vladimir was excellent. He skillfully prepared The Tiger shrimp flambé tableside and the Bananas Foster both delicious. Every dish we ate was mouth watering. The Veal, the Chicken Milanese,The Steak and Lobster and the Onion Soup. We Look forward to our return.
One of our favorite places to go for special occasions. Great food and drinks.
We were lucky enough to have the couples dinner special which made the dinner super affordable. This is one of our favorites in Sarasota. You will not be disappointed.
Everything was amazing
Such a great place to eat and the staff are wonderful
Felt safe dinning at Cafe Europa. Temperature taken at entrance, must wear mask, all staff wearing masks. Tables were all at the proper distance or more. Did the Savor Sarasota menu and it was outstanding.
This was our first visit to Cafe L'Europe and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience! The quality of the food was incredible, right down to the bread, which was nicely warmed with a delightful crust. We will definitely go back.
Have eaten there many times never disappointed will return when in Sarasota again
We had not been to Cafe L’Europe in a few years, and while the food is still good the atmosphere was disappointing. We remembered a more upscale dining experience; unfortunately it’s now more shorts, tourists and loud groups. Not the romantic dinner we were looking forward to... disappointing.
Fabulous restaurant it was exactly like I remember to 25 years ago
Awesome restaurant! The food is delicious ! And the service is outstanding!! I recommend.
We went to Cafe Europa to celebrate my birthday. We had a terrific meal with a wonderful bottle of wine. Our server, Maria Ann was fantastic and set the tone for a special evening.
Would go again and again! We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service. It would be a local hang out for us if we lived near by.
Always wonderful. Very accommodating on table preferences in light of COVID.
Thanks for the surprise chocolate treat for our birthday girl!
Delicious food, warm and inviting atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff. My son attended a local boarding school and it was a refreshing change of pace to local chain restaurants. And not too fancy that he couldn’t wear a golf shirt and shorts. Highly recommend!
Second time here and wasn't disappointed. A must is the Shrimp Pernod appetizer. This is done tableside and is quite a production. Excellent as well. A had surf and turf and my wife had the short ribs. Both were excellent. Very nice dinner, great service, a must. They are very well prepared for Covid as well. They take your temperature before you go in. Social distancing as well.
They did an incredible job! Didn’t disappoint :) LOVED the French Onion soup served in an onion... wow!
This restaurant provided an enjoyable evening for my wife and me. The atmosphere was elegant with the charm of a European cafe. It was cozy yet had ample space between tables. The Veal Marsala was delectable and the slice of chocolate mousse cake we shared for dessert topped off an excellent meal. Our waiter was attentive and thoughtful. This qualifies as one of the best restaurants in Sarasota.
Always great. Been here many times. If you’re a regular, you may not have tried their table side for two desserts. The bananas foster is fabulous and fun. Their French onion soup is made in an actual onion as the bowl. Fantastic. Best place on St Armand’s. Plus they have outside doggie dining too.
The restaurant itself is stunning, the location directly on the circle of St Armands is incredible, the staff is so accommodating and knowledgeable but the food was heavenly to say the least!! We all loved it and will be back again soon
Excellent service and variety of food. Feels like eating in a European restaurant. Good menu variety (food/wine). Not just for a special occasion. Highly recommend, will be going back when in the area again.
The food, service and atmosphere was as wonderful as always.
Have the duck. It was crispy but not dry. If it is on the menu again, have the mushroom soup. Very flavorful and an unusual find. Have the banana's foster. It has enough rum in it to be a drink in itself. Sit back, have a drink, and allow the staff to pamper you with delicious food and unrivaled attention. We will definitely be going back.
Wonderful dinner - amazing food and sophisticated service. Very accommodating.
Always love it! Always go there when visiting LBK.
The potato crusted grouper and the onion soup are not to be missed
The food is fantastic and very old world. The tableside preparation of many of the items is outstanding. Our service was excellent, the waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about all the menu items. The french bread they give you is very good, the dover sole is to die for and the bananas foster for dessert!
Well worth a trip!
I eat at Cafe L'Europe 1-2 per year, and I've always enjoyed it. This last visit was not as good, however. The food was excellent, but service was lacking in what I expect when I pay near $200 for two. Water glasses went unfilled without multiple requests, and the time between courses seemed endless. To top it off, the server forgot to include the condiments for my leftovers even when I specifically asked for them.
I'd say it was our server, but I noticed other diners having similar issues. It seemed to me that management didn't have adequate staff on hand, or those they did have weren't as competent as what I've seen previously. I won't give up on the restaurant after one bad experience, but if it doesn't improve I'll have to find a new place to eat in St. Armand's Circle.
The food was fabulous and the service impeccable. One of our favorite places on the circle.
Fresh, delicious, elegant, and worth every penny.
