This restaurant is amazing and has been on LBK for years. I first started going to this restaurant in the 80'a to visit my favorite cousin. This restaurant was one we always went to whenever I would visit. I had never had sweetbreads and here they are prepared with perfection. I also loved the table side Caesar. My cousin sadly... More

Those of you familiar with the literary world will recall the house of Miss Havisham's in the novel Great Expectations. This ambiance came to mind as I settled down to an excellent meal at Euphemiia Hay's restaurant recently on Longboat Key, just outside of Sarasota, Florida on Longboat Key. I have eaten here a number of times over the years... More

Bruce, You really hit the nail on the head when describing our restaurant's ambiance! The restaurant is named after the original owner's grandmother, Euphemia, so we decided to style the interior in her honor, with a turn-of-the-century feel. We are so happy that our restaurant evokes the magical, "euphoric" feel that we intended and we are very flattered by your... More

This review pertains to Euphemia Haye's Loft. The bar is quaint and the music is not too loud. This is the second time we visit, the first time we had dessert & tea and we LOVED it. The second time, we thought we'd do a light dinner and dessert. The Waldorf salad was delicious and so were the buckwheat crepes... More

I first visited this restaurant in the 1970's. I've returned many times since. Though ownership and personnel have changed over the years, the spirit has not. The food is always creative and the service is extremely courteous and timely without hovering. The ambiance is perfect - small spaces in a converted house. My wife usually orders an appetizer only and... More

We had a romantic dinner with a waiter that was professional yet personable and funny. From appetizer to entree the experience was awesome. We had the California scallop entree and the snapper blackened. Both prepared perfectly. The dessert room however was disappointing but certainly did not detract from the downstairs dinner experience. The smell upon entering upstairs was of pizza... More

After a disappointing dinner elsewhere, we drove over to Euphemia Haye for dessert. OMG!!!! How do you pick among the choices? The seven of us decided to buy a "few" options and share between us. Chocolate Ganache cake -- to die for!; Cocount Custard Pie -- the BEST!; Apple Walnut Crumble pie -- something to write home about; and Key... More

Delicious food and nice ambiance. Interesting to watch a chef cooking an evening menu special outside of the kitchen. Portions were good sized and bread on the table was a nice treat.

Euphemia is a MUST VISIT for us when we are on LBK. The Snails Leslie is excellent, as is the classic Caesar Salad. For us, that is meal enough, although everything is delightful. We have also called for take out when we aren't able to dine in.
