    I had not been to Euphemia Hayes in over 20 years, and it did not disappoint! My boyfriend and I were celebrating an anniversary and we could not have had a more lovely experience. From the Happy Anniversary sign waiting on our table , in the Taven Room, to the fantastic salmon appetizer and phenomenal meals our evening could not have been better. The service is wonderful, they let you take your time and relax. Afterwards our server escorted us to the dessert room upstairs for sweets and coffee drinks. It was a fabulous night! We will definitely be back soon!

    It was our Anniversary so we wanted a special dinner. I had a wonderful lemon martini. My husband had an old fashion. Hd had better. Both of us had the snapper and it was awesome. The Brussels sprouts were just okay. Really liked the fried green tomatoes. Overall a great night. A bit overpriced. But had a nice evening!

    After many years of being a Florida west coast resident we finally tried this restaurant. It is a remarkably interesting place with a local vibe and much history which is very noteworthy. All was good until I reviewed the bill and saw just one charge that I could not understand... My wife and I split the signature entree (Steak in a skillet with peppercorns etc..- it was good) but the waiter never mentioned the "added" "split" charge to split the main course steak (one of 4 courses we had) nor the fact that this entree was supposed to be flambéed at the table (which I asked him upon seeing it on the menu from the start which he said "yes we do") A 70-dollar New York Strip Steak is a bit much. We probaly wont be going back soon..

    The service was good . The food was not good . This wasn’t fine dinning , chef prepared. If it was , then the chef needs to head back to culinary school for a refresher course. If dinner was $120 for 3 people I would just say ok move on done . Dinner was $275 with tip plus another $68 for dessert. The dessert that they take you upstairs to eat, then have a women explain what they are because non of us have ever had apple , key lime or coconut cream pie before . The dessert does look good too, bad it falls way short of expectations. Save yourself $60 and try the cupcakes at Publix $4.99 and half gallon of milk 2.99 and you be happier and wealthier because of it . This is a $ 343 meal we will talk about for many years to come but for all the wrong reasons . Oh and I left out we all had upset stomachs later that night ! I won’t go into any details .

    We went with friends for a last night celebration. As always the food and service was excellent. This is such a pretty restaurant - homely with a European feel. We all had steaks which were fabulous - definitely the best strip steak in town. Pre ordered shrimp cocktails - delicious. Also enjoyed the warm bacon and spinach salad. Looking forward to our next visit. P.S. We missed you Sammy.

    Fabulous experience. The presentation, staff and food were excellent. I enjoyed the zucchini fettuccine appetizer and my husband the fried green tomatoes, both very tasty. Our main courses were the veal with mushrooms and the grouper, both prepared with an interesting twist. After dinner we happily went to the Hayloft for a delicious dessert. The berry pie al a mode tasted better than home made. Can’t wait for the next opportunity to return with family for dinner

    I have been dining at Euphemia Haye for at least 15 years. I would certainly recommend it to those traveling through as the old school ambiance and nostalgic décor of days gone by is well worth it. This is the traditional gem of the fine dining we all grew up going to. However,,,,I hate to say that the food is not up to par as it once was. The duck as well as the steak special were both as over cooked as humanly possible though the apps and sides were spot on. It has been this way the last couple of times and I will go back again to see if/when it returns to its former glory. If you go, be sure to get upstairs after dinner and experience the desert room. All in all this is a restaurant worth making a trip to.

    A hidden gem in Longboat Key, but it has been there since the 70's! Exceptional food, service and ambiance. The best eggplant parmesan I have ever had, and the grouper was as delicious as it was fresh. The dessert bar upstairs is not to be missed. We will definitely be back!

    Euphemia Haye is worth the travel and wait. We were vacationing in Lido Key and wanted a nice restaurant to have dinner and made reservations here. After being 30 minutes late due to a thunderstorm for our reservation, there was no problem seating us immediately and the night continued as if nothing had happened. I had the cannelloni and my wife had the carbonara. It was hands down some of the best cannelloni I've ever had. The ambience was great and the fact that they have a dessert room upstairs where you are explained all the desserts and detail and then dying separately from where you eat your dinner is a unique touch to the establishment and made the desert experience special. I highly recommend this restaurant for a fine dining experience. It was also reasonably priced. The only thing I thought was odd, was the banana bread that was brought out as a pre appetizer offer. Also, some of the decor could use some updating, particularly posters in the dining area in the back or the odd globe set that one would expect to see hanging in an adolescent boys room, not a fancy restaurant. Minor observations on an otherwise excellent night with great staff and food.

    Hadn't been back since the 80s. My wife put it best: "Old school done well." Her steak was perfect. My snapper was meh. Sauces were really great. We had tuna tartar which was five stars as was the caesar salad. I've had more exciting brussel sprouts though. The dessert room was cozy and fun. But there were people having pizza at the next table! What? All of a sudden I didn't feel I was in a fine dining establishment. Our waiter Billy, was excellent. We ordered a bottle of bubbly. Billy made us feel comfortable and let us enjoy the experience without being pretentious or pushy. At about $450 for two, will come back in a few years. It's a bit over priced.

    The ambience in this place is awesome! It's a very nice restaurant and the service is wonderful. However, the food is extremely overpriced for what you get. We ordered the pepper steak and the snapper. The pepper steak was so overdone, we sent it back. Be advised, it is a deep fried steak, a fact they don't tell you up front. My snapper was just okay, but crust on top was so thick that it overwhelmed the taste of the fish. The sides we ordered, creamed spinach and mashed cauliflower were good, but total bill was over $100 and definitely not worth it. There are definitely better places out there to go to for the money.
