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
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.
Fantastic fine dining experience. Great food, good service, fine ambiance. Will definitely return. Highly recommend.
Waiter mixed up all of the orders and drinks .. must have been his first time.
Great food...location was perfect for a romantic date...just an overall great experience!
Overall experience was favorable - especially food and service. However, we had to ask for early-bird menu, instead of it being given along with regular menu. Also, when I asked about Happy Hour drink specials, I was told Happy Hour is only in bar or outside .....after we were already seated inside. The hostess could have informed us before seating as we did have reservations.
Arrived 700pm. Entry served 915pm. Far too long. Manager took about 20% off the billed when we advised of the problem. Waiter was good but kitchen backed up.
Terrible food quality. Mussels in lemon butter and garlic were watery with too much lemon and Salad L’Europe was nothing but greens, not as described AND everything was way overpriced. Too bad for a restaurant which was once one of the best on St Armand’s Key.
A lunch favorite of ours for many years. Consistently good food with experienced wait staff. The crepe and salad make for excellent pairing
We were seated by the kitchen and our server was working outside so the service was slow. They had run out of the special which all four of us wanted so we had to select our second choice.2 out of 4 of us had a decent meal. 2 of us had the pasta bolognese which was very disappointing. The sauce was sweet and had a lot of tomato. The homemade pasta was good but the sauce was so disappointing I would stay away from it. This was a $300 meal for four people and at $150 it would be overpriced. I would not recommend this restaurant .
We had a party of 7 and an inattentive server. She wasn’t available to keep our wine glasses replenished, removed flatware from the table and didn’t replenish it, removed plates while others were still eating. In general ignored us. First experience we have had with service in the many years we have been patrons of this fine restaurant. The food and ambiance continue to be excellent! The management staff always do their absolute best to please
The food, the service & drink was fabulous! Finding a parking was a huge disappointment! Why they do not offer ballet on Sundays?
We travel from NJ to our condo in LBK, every month. And EVERY month we eat at Cafe Europe!!! Three nights ago, my love and I took some friends with us to Cafe Europe. Our meal was terrific!!! I had the NY Strip Steak & it was done perfectly. All of my guests loved their meals. This is our “go to place “ when we come to LBK. We always go on a Saturday night. The service is EXCEPTIONAL!!! The staff is warm and friendly.
I must tell you that one HUGE reason why we go to Cafe Europe is because of a waitress named Marianna!!
She is absolutely THE BEST server we have ever had!!!
She is warm, friendly, helpful & very personable. She is the heart of this establishment!!!!
Great meal and able to enjoy company of family at a special place.
Our server Mariana was so nice, attentive and made it further enjoyable to all.
Annual event for us when visiting Sarasota.
Wonderful dining experience w/Dana! Can’t wait to go back‼️
Great food but they had run out of 3 different wines on their menu. My wife would ask for a wine and 3 times was told sorry but we have run put of it. That is bad enough but understandable for one wine selection but I was very disappointed that it happened for 2 other choices my wife made. The food was great and the music made the night.
My sister visiting from California was blown away by every little detail tonight!! Thank you ALL so much❤️
A perfect spot for lunch on the Circle! The service is always attentive and the food, well prepared. This visit, I enjoyed the ahi tuna, which was very fresh and well prepared, and a bowl of their delicious lobster bisque. The lunch menu is varied and well priced for the location. Sitting outside is enjoyable, and if it's too warm out, enjoy the beautiful, comfortable surroundings inside. We will continue to visit occasionally throughout the year.
Our overall experience was good.We did have to wait a while even though we had a reservation.The waiter was very attentive and the food was delish.
This is one of our 2 favorite restaurants in Sarasota area. The food is fantastic. Great French cuisine. Good wine list. Well-trained service staff. More formal inside. Less formal outside. We go here often.
Restaurant was very nice. Traffic in Sarasota was terrible. Absolute nightmare the last half mile
Great food at a reasonable price. Fabulous service! A nice spot on St. Armands Circle.
For the past dozen years we have lunched at Cafe L'Europe on our trips to Sarasota. It is one of the handful of very best restaurants in the area. Sitting outdoors in front is especially delightful, though a bit crowded with passersby. The lunch menu is highly varied, consistently excellent and moderately priced, for an otherwise expensive restaurant. The lamb sliders with delectable side salad are my top recommendation. We had a splendid waiter, Tony, a Puerto Rican from Indiana, who is a gem. Great place!
really a great find. We all tried different items and shared. Everything was very very good. Service was outstanding and pre-game cocktails at the bar FUN (bartender was great). The special corn seafood soup should be on the menu daily.
Not my first time here and again it was wonderful. My only note is the noise level. I do not think this was a problem last time I was in.
One of few places with a plate-splitting fee. Smoked salmon appetizer was great. Beer selection limited. Portobello raviolis were tasteless.
Wonderful food beautiful atmosphere..
Arrived on time for our reservation seated at a table waited for service then the manager came up and asked if we seated ourselves and we said no the hostess brought us to the table it was already reserved and we said we would be happy to move and she said wait one moment then came back said we could stay then we waited 20 minutes for service and finally had to go up and ask for a server, they basically forgot about us the manager then brought us a drink on the house and Casey was our server and all was good the lunch was fabulous
Always a treat! Cafe L'europe has the best ingredients, my roast duckling was fantastic, with a delicious cherry sauce. The fish is super fresh, and dessert was excellent.
There are plenty of restaurants at St. Armand's Circle in Sarasota, this is one of the best. We always enjoy dining here!
always an awesome experience and food and service superb
The service and food was excellent! We will definitely recommend to our friends when they visit Sarasota!
We go here for Valentine’s Day every year. The food is delectable! The drinks are flowing! The service is exceptional! The owner was handing every lady a long stemmed red rose!
It was ok although we had hoped for better. My wife’s grouper dish was very good. My ribeye was not. Dry and very thin. No marveling
The service was very indifferent. It consisted of a visit every once in a while but not attentive at all
Not high on our list for a return
We had a wonderful time at Cafe L'Europe. The service and food were both excellent and the atmosphere is very nice. This is a great place to eat in St. Armand.
Cafe L' Europe has that old world charm, Outstanding service, Great Menu, Great Cocktails and a very fine Wine list. Our waitress and the Restaurant Manager were outstanding in making sure we were taken care of during our evening!
Go here often. Last two visit not the best. Service was not its usual highlight.
Excellent service, as expected for a high priced restaurant. Food was okay, but not great. Not up to the price that was charged. Wine was about as expected in price. They didn't have the vintage of wine shown on the menu and didn't seem to think that was a problem. To me, if you list the vintage, then that is what you should have available. Otherwise, just don't list the vintage. The restaurant was busy and we were pleased with the overall experience.
Since we grew up in Europe (Switzerland), we are always looking for a good European restaurant. Cafe l Europe was exactly what we were looking for. Service and food was very good and the restaurant has a good ambience. We will gladly recommend this restaurant to others. Even if the journey is one hour for us, we will gladly visit Cafe l Europe again.
