This was our first visit to Euphemia Haye after having driven by dozens of times. First, the hostess is the best looking girl ever to have greeted me at a restaurant. Had to follow a beach tradition, a champagne cocktail and they made a very good one. The escargot were the best I have ever had and I've had a... More

I actually hesitate to write a negative review, but I really would not go back to this restaurant. And I feel bad. We went because my cousin said he'd never been but always hears wonderful things. So, we went. The food is good and it's obvious there is a talented chef at this restaurant. But this is outweighed by the... More

We had a large group here for a very nice evening. The appetizers were all great. The presentation was quite good and the service was fine. I would have gone with the fish special, but I went with the pasta options instead. Bad choice. Capellini with shrimp and a very lemony sauce. Desserts upstairs were all good.

Hello! Glad to hear you had a wonderful time at the restaurant! We do apologize that the capellini wasn't up to par, We will make this known to our kitchen staff for sure. Thank you for your review and we do hope to hear from you soon! More

My husband and I have traveled to Longboat Key for 16 years and always dine at Euphemia Haye once during our stay. This year food same --- stable, predictably good -- but waiter was so disinterested and somewhat deceptive. I asked for a Greygoose CITRON cocktail. Michael (the waiter) didn't hesitate to take order, but gratefully my husband clarified the... More

This was our first time at this restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed it. My zucchini linguine with tomato was simply delicious as was the gulf snapper with a pistachio crust. My spouse had three smaller plates including the fried green tomatoes, the Caesar salad, and one other. Service was professional and attentive without being intrusive. The only disappointment was his... More

We are very glad to hear you had a wonderful experience at the restaurant. It sounds like you got to try quite a few of our eclectic dishes! Maybe our bartenders need a refresher though, perhaps! Did you have a drink upstairs or downstairs? This information will help us make sure every cocktail our bartenders whip up is better than... More

Disappointed!! I am a long time resident (40 years) of the Sarasota area. I always heard raving reviews of EH and was really looking forward to experiencing the innovative delicious cuisine. The old place would've been eclectic and quaint back in the day however it looked tired and run down. Our view was of the road and a sad looking... More

Hello and thank you for your review! You are absolutely right, those poinsettias do look tired. We had the idea that they might regenerate for next season, but since your review we have cut most of all of them and are now searching for a good Summer – Fall plant! Also, were you able to bring the smothered veal or... More

My husband and I booked dinner at this well known, established place on Long Boat Key after hearing many recommendations. We decided to give it a try for our anniversary dinner. The place has a charming appeal upon entering, we were well greeted and seated promptly. However, from there the service took a downward turn. Our waiter was clearly over... More

For this visit, we experienced their happy hour upstairs for our first stop doing progressive dining. We ordered pizza and ahi tuna and both were delicious. Great service too. Met lovely ppl at the bar. The desserts looked fantastic.
