Very good meal in the dining room
Fantastic deserts in the upstairs dessert room
Enjoyed drinks at the upstairs bar prior to dinner

It was like walking into a restaurant in Florida from the 1930’s
I thought the decor was awesome

We were celebrating two anniversary milestones last night at Euphemia Haye and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect spot. The service was impeccable, the food outstanding and the ambience perfect. Two of us ordered the grouper special and found it tasty, generous in size and beautifully presented. Another member of our party had the snapper entre' which is a regular on the menu and for good reason. The fourth diner chose the Cannelloni and loved it.
Don't hesitate to visit this hidden spot on Longboat Key; it is definitely worth the drive!

A beautiful and well appointed rest. The food is always excellent. Never go without a reservation. If you like, and it is fun, go upstairs for desert. Pandemic aside, upstairs is fun and has great entertainment.
My wife and I eat her at least once a week when we are on Longboat.

I took my wife to Euphemia Haye to celebrate her birthday. This was our first visit to the restaurant. I selected it based on its reviews and location. David was our server and he was fantastic! The food was amazing. We will absolutely go back!

Very nice ambiance and service. The reason for the low food rating was the lamb shank which was so overcooked that the meat was crumbly. Since all shanks would have been the same - we were told they are all cooked the same- they promptly offered the duck. Yet again, when a duck is roasted whole/half, it takes skill to have the breast and the leg done properly. And they didn’t have the skill. The dessert was the signature apple cake- they need a new pastry chef also. This place has a lot of potential but needs new chefs.

Lovely, old fashioned ambiance. Tablecloths, silver etc. squeaky clean. Seated me crammed between a wall and the salad mixing stand even though there was a 2 seater open the whole time I was there by garden view. Food: Delicious Negroni and starter bread. Filet mignon- great portion and mushroom sauce. Bleeding in the middle. Creamed spinach inedible. Banana cream pie inedible. Staff are very pleasant.

One of my favorite places to have a true dining experience. Euphemia Heye is truely an experience from the ambiance of the converted house with such history, to absolute gourmet food, exceptional wait staff, and then of course the Heye Loft and to die for deserts. You must experience this place! Don’t just go for a dinner out. ❤️

Unique place and cozy atmosphere. Food was average. Waiter suggested the house special “peppered strip” steak - nothing special. To much pepper and overflowing with their house “sauce” - think they spilled a bottle of Peter Elgar’s on the steak.

Once is enough , we will not be back.

Euphemia Haye is always an extraordinary experience. We have been to numerous restaurants while we have been in Sarasota for the holidays and they have been overcrowded, extremely slow service and the food quality has suffered. Not so with Euphemia Haye, here the food and service are perfectly timed and of great quality. My husband had the steak with peppercorn sauce and I had the duck, they were both perfection and worth every penny. Our server kept the meal flowing smoothly without us feeling rushed or with too long between courses. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Euphemia Haye to anyone looking for a superior meal in a beautiful atmosphere with excellent service. What more could you want?!!!

Mediocre dining experience. After being net by an inflexible male receptionist,
we ordered escargot. Unfortunately it was more mushrooms than snails and the
dish was saturated with garlic. Our next dish was a Caesar salad which was again overwhelmed with garlic. If you are a strong garlic lover, this is your place. The
fine dining experience was anything but fine. The duck was good, not as crispy as
hoped with drenched stuffing. After dinner our stomach's played quite a bit of
noise and we were pleased to have two restrooms. Service was decent but
rough around the edges.

We enjoyed Christmas Eve dinner at Euphemia Haye and our waiter, Spencer, made it an extra night. He was attentive but not intrusive, making sure we had what everything we needed. He even looked up a wine rating review to help us select our wine. Food was so perfectly cooked (filet for me and goose special for my husband). We will definitely be back. We even enjoyed the host who greeted us - great sense of humor and impeccably dressed. Thanks for a lovely evening.

Each and every dish was extremely well prepared and elegantly plated. The service was a model of what service should b3 in a top restaurant. The menu has sufficient choices to satisfy any palette even most idiosyncratic diners. And the desert experience is unique. Viva Euphemism Haye.

We were thrilled to get our absolute favorite, the veal sweetbreads, which the waiter said had been unavailable for several weeks. Our timing was perfect, apparently. It is just a lovely place to go this time of year.

Celebrated 2 Bdays here last night! Great, quiet ambiance, terrific service and large, flavorful food. Celebrated first with a bottle of Prosecco that accompanied wonderful snails, a terrific Caesar salad, and Russian crepes with smoked salmon. We paired a terrific Chateau-Neuf-Du-Pape with superb, tender roast duck with an apricot sauce, snapper with pistachios. All were perfectly prepared, well spiced and delcious. Of interest, after you pay the bill, they ask you to go upstairs to the Hay Loft -- a cozy, casual bar, booths and even outdoor seating area that has a csua lighter menu as ell as the place to select and eat your desserts ---- of course, for an additional price. We shared the fruit tart and a delicious key lime pie (best in a long time anywhere!!). In all, a lovely , warm and quiet restaurant that is a world away from the ultra hi noise level places many are used to. While no one could call the food or menu cutting edge, they do "what they do" very very well!

This place has been a favorite for special occasions for some time now. But it was a bit off this past Saturday night. I don't know if it has to due with the continuing fallout from the pandemic, or what, but I was somewhat less than impressed with my entree and, in the case of the Haye Loft, the service. I ordered the duck, which is one of their signature dishes, and something I usually order when I go there. To my disappointment, even though the pricing had gone up, as everything else has during this pandemic, the portion was much smaller than my last experience here, and the duck was cooked to the point it was almost inedible - dry and extremely tough. To their credit, the other diners in our party were all extremely pleased with their entrees (the snapper and the steaks), so mine might have been a one-off situation. And all the other items, sides and salads, were great, as was the service downstairs. In the Haye Loft was another story, though. There were plenty of dessert items to choose from, as usual. Unfortunately, there appeared to be only one server in the entire loft and, it being Saturday night, she was definitely somewhat overwhelmed - to the point that my dessert selection was sold out before it could be delivered. She was doing the best she could, with help from several bussers, but when it takes almost 30 minutes to receive a dessert that just has to be cut and delivered, I'm thinking that's a little long. Perhaps they are in the same situation as most other businesses - it is just about impossible to find help these days. All in all, the meal was very good, but there were some minor issues that prevented me from awarding 5 stars for this particular outing.
