Best veal dishes and world renown duck. Best Caesar salad ever. If you can afford it it is very well worth it.

Our veal seams to get overshadowed by our peppered steak and duck, but it’s one of my favorites as well! More

This was a return visit- each time I visit the area, Euphemia Haye is on my to do list. I did not go to the main dining room on this visit... Just the loft and music bar. Desserts are a specialty here as the evening ends. Save room to share a dessert. Don't miss the emotive jazz - I should... More

Our Haye Loft really is a gem. We’re so happy that you were able to enjoy it on this visit. But, you are right, it’s best to arrive early in the evening. That or to arrive later in the evening (perhaps after 8pm) as it begins to clear out. More

Our first visit here and we were brought up to speed by a very informative waiter. We started with a Bacon & Spinach salad (delicious) and their Classic Caesar Salad which is made just steps away from our table. We enjoyed two of the main course specials that evening, Veal and Grouper. Both were well prepared and tasty. The wine... More

I love this place. Every time I come here I have to get the famous peppercorn steak. If you like steak get it!!!!! Also the duck is fabulous!!! After dinner it's awesome to go upstairs and get a drink along with their warm pecan pie. Best restaraunt in long boat. It is pricey.

Hi Alex! We’re glad you enjoy our retro feel and are so enthusiastic about the Pepper steak and the Duck when you visit Longboat Key. Might I suggest next time trying the apple walnut crumble pie - warmed with a bit of ice cream. So good. We look forward to your next visit, please say, “Hi” when you visit again! More

There is just something about the quaint and somewhat cramped but comfortable environment around the bar upstairs that makes this place special. Very attentive service and nice entertainment. I am telling you the Eggplant Parmesan, real Caesar Salad and the Pizza with Duck are awesome.

27.00 for pasta no meat or seafood in it and soggy. Banana fosters was 12.50 per Person mandatory 2 ppl and it was just bananas with ice cream. Beautiful building and fantastic service. Sorry to say we won't go again due quality versus price. If quality improves would gladly pay the price.

We ate in The Loft which had a good atmosphere and a keyboard player. However, I did think that he could have played for longer sessions. My main complaint would be that I think the staff should be retrained in customer care. They appeared bored and not particularly attentive and when my food was nearly dropped into my lap there...

Nice quiet restaurant in Longboat Key, great food, the owner stopped by to check on us during dinner, very nice man. The tuna sashimi appetizer was very flavorful, very fresh. Salads were made fresh to order, great caesar dressing. The key west Snapper with pistachio nuts was delicious and moist! We went upstairs after dinner, where they have 10+ desserts,... More
