Awesome! Would never miss an opportunity to dine there when in St. Armand’s. Potato crusted grupper is the Specialty. A winner every time.
Absolutely first class! The food was some of the best I have had in Sarasota and one of only a few restaurants here where you can experience fine dining.
We went there for our anniversary dinner and requested a table outside on the patio by the rail. I booked two weeks in advance and specified it was our anniversary. When we arrived they acknowledged our request was made, but said those tables weren’t available. We were seated in the front room inside, which was a bit crowded and noisy. We overheard the party that was seated next to us telling the hostess that they also had asked for an outside table. They said they booked on Open Table as well. The person seating them said that their mistake was booking on Open Table instead of calling the restaurant directly. I guess you are treated differently if you call direct. We have never felt that way at any other restaurant we booked through Open Table. On a positive note the dinner for two was a great deal, even though you would only know about it if you checked out their website ahead of time. We had to ask for that special menu. The food as always was wonderful. We visit this restaurant often for lunch and have always loved the food and service, our experience for our anniversary was disappointing. They did not even acknowledge the event with a complimentary dessert like most high end restaurants do. Will still go back, but not for a special occasion.
We had dinner at Cafe L'Europe - St. Armands with a very good friend and her husband from high school who were in town. Our server, Mariana was so sweet and really did a FANTASTIC job! She answered all our questions (and we asked alot about the food choices!) and she really spaced out our dinner so nice! We hadn't seen these friends so it was such a nice paced dinner so we could talk and she really handled that well! We all enjoyed everything we ordered, delicious! We will definitely be back!
Nice outdoor patio seating on St Armand’s Circle.
Went here for a nice prom night dinner and we were very pleased. Our waiter Westin was very polite and attentive and the food was great. The music was live and soft, good conversation and atomosphere.
First time there. Went for husbands birthday. Had a wonderful time. The food was exceptional, all 3 of us really enjoyed what we ordered. We are looking forward to returning for another meal, perhaps the "brunch" on a weekend.
Great food, great service and great music!
I definetly will come back again in my next trip.
The escargot and shrimp appetizers were delicious. We had for dinner a pasta dish with scallops ,shrimp. Excellent. Good service and very relaxing.
Love it here. It never disappoints. We both had one of the specials of the day, which was “Prime” prime rib. It was succulent, juicy, and as tender as could be. It cut like “buttah.” Everything else was equally delicious, and the service was attentive. We sat out at the sidewalk tables under their blue tent-like covering. Very enjoyable!
Nice restaurant with a good ambience. Most of the food was exceptional except for my wife's steak which was plain, bland and not seasoned. Overall a lovely experience for our anniversary.
We always enjoy our experience at L'Europe. Great food. Very good service. A wonderful place to take visitors.
Our hands down favorite restaurant in Sarasota and that’s saying something. Potato Crusted Grouper is always great !!! You can order any dish on menu and it will be amazing.
The food was amazing and the waiter was good, HOWEVER it took an hour to get our food and their were only three other tables being served in the restaurant.
As always, everything was absolutely perfect!! This was a last minute dinner with our daughter-in-law and granddaughter. The hostess seated us promptly and our waiter took wonderful care of us. Service was prompt without making you feel rushed. His recommendations were thoughtful and knowledgeable. I had the Sea Bass which is one the dinners they are known for - it was so delicious! My husband had the potato encrusted grouper which was also fabulous. Our daughter-in-law ordered the swordfish special - as promised it was moist and tender - perfectly prepared. If you are on the Circle, this is one of the best restaurants to try!
We selected Cafe L'Europe on St. Armands Circle to celebrate our anniversary! ...an EXCELLENT DECISION! Chateaubriand for two was EXCEPTIONAL!! ...perfectly prepared with an EXCELLENT selection of accompaniments. Our server Carlos was prompt, courteous, and professional. Our selections were hot and delicious! ...prefect Cappucino's ...and we were served a wonderful complementary dessert! THIS RESTAURANT IS THE BEST OF THE BEST! Valet parking is now available at the rear of the restaurant (not out front). Thank you for a PERFECT EVENING!! Rick & Barbie
Wonderful service and food,!
Excelente servicio todos muy amables, la comida muy buena y el vino también muy bueno
Vale la pena probarlo
Good food and good service makes for a pleasant evening, try it you’ll like it.
We have been here before. Food was excellent (2 had fish and 2 had the Tuesday night prime rib special).
Service a bit off this visit. Wine by the glass was mixed up when delivered. When error was brought to waiter's attention, no apology. For a very nice restaurant I was shocked at no Tanqueray Ten in the bar. Potato crusted fish was not gluten free friendly and it would be nice to offer half sized salads.
It was good
The food and service were excellent. Our waiter, Stephen, was friendly, easy-going, and attentive. He even gave us information on things to do in the area. The downside was that the outdoor seating area was dark and right next to the sounds and smells of the heavy car traffic that seems ubiquitous during tourist season on St. Armands. They did apologize for the poor lighting and have us a candle.
25 years as a customer!
Generally good experience, as always. But don't order the short ribs--very fatty. And their special grouper in potato crust was not as good this time as it usually is.
Food great and service was great also.
Our family vacation was highlighted by a visit to this wonderful restaurant! The food and ambiance were wonderful and our service, by Steve. was superb!! Thank you for a memorable evening!
Good friendly service and descent food
We were welcomed with a smile. Led to a table with an outside view. Staff was pleasant and they brought out a cake for the birthday celebrant. Def. enjoyed it! Café L'Europe is the best value for lunch in all of St. Armand's Circle. Their cheeseburger is the best in Sarasota and they have many more delicious options for lunch! Must try spot!
We had a get together with out of town friends. They loved the food, service and decor. It is a bit expensive but not for the quality of the experience on a special occasion.
The one time each year that I can get liver and know that I will not be alone. We four always meet halfway, at Saint Armands Circle, for lunch at Cafe l'Europe.
Marianna was a great server. Food & wine excellent!
Always amazing meal and service !
Birthday celebration the waiter took it upon himself to have the birthday put on the cake. Very nice touch
We enjoyed a very pleasant lunch. The menu selection was very varied and the food we enjoyed was excellent
Very good service and good quality food
We ate at LE Europa this past Saturday night. The reservation process was simple. We asked for the special dining menu which offers dinner for 2 including wine, appetizer and dinner for $59.95. The food was excellent and the items selected for the dinner special were lovely. We had a party of 5 and all of us enjoyed our meal. We will be back again.
Lively, but not loud! We met another couple for combo of business/pleasure lunch. We can count on great service, interesting specials, and, while busy, still remains quiet enough to have a conversation without straining our ears. Food is delicious.
Cold food bad service over priced
Fantastic fine dining experience. Great food, good service, fine ambiance. Will definitely return. Highly recommend.
