We don't get to this area often so I found it on Trip Advisor, thank you. Went for the high reviews of the food and jazz music for after dinner. Husband had the duck, 1 of their specialties. While it was good, it was a bit overcooked. I had the snapper that was good, nothing special. We ordered salads because... More

We have gone to Euphemia Hayes for special occasions and are also impressed with the quality of food and service. The upstairs dessert bar and lounge with music every night is worth a visit also. The table side Caesar salad is the best ever.

We started upstairs with cocktails while we waited for our table. The bar was very comfortable and it gave us a chance to peruse the Desert Room that is just behind the bar room. Downstairs has a very comfortable at home feel. We had a large party and our server handled our group with kind care and attention. I had... More

The atmosphere was good but the food was not high end like we expected. We ordered the tuna appetizer and there were 4 paper thin 1" pieces for $19.50. I was very unhappy with the Large shrimp, split and poached in a white wine, garlic, fresh basil and olive oil sauce, tossed with thin egg pasta. The thin egg pasta... More

Went to the dessert bar for a birthday celebration. Waited at the top of the stairs for about 10-15minutes before being seated. After finally getting a tour of the dessert bar we sat now an ordered a warm and delicious fudge brownie topped with ice cream (portions are very large here, so I suggest sharing). Our waitress wasn't very attentive... More

You haven't been to a restaurant like this. How about dining downstairs and adjourning upstairs for dessert? Since 1980, Euphemia Haye has ranked among the Sarasota area's top five restaurants and one of America's top 200 most romantic restaurants. International travel writer Frommer singled it out as "the most extraordinary restaurant" in Sarasota. The fine dining location at 5540 Gulf... More

We had reservations at 8 and they seated is right away. We were a party of 6 ladies and everyone had amazing meals. Service was amazing. And the atmosphere is warm and friendly. After dinner we went to the upstairs bar and desert room and continued our celebration.

We're thrilled that you chose to celebrate with us! There's nothing quite like a trip upstairs to the Dessert Room for birthdays and ladies nights - so many great choices and, the bigger the group, the more you can choose! More

Pretty restaurant with a clearly well established local following. We sat in the "loft" area next to dessert selection. So far so good. Menu is balanced with a $36 prix fixe option. However, portions are tiny. No veg or sides were offered or suggested. In fact the dishes on the non fixed option were child / starter size. Tiny bowl... More

We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with our summer prix fixe menu. It's one of our more popular offerings because it allows folks to enjoy some of their favorite fine dining options upstairs in the Haye Loft. The smaller portions allow us to make this possible at the $36 price point and, we hope, it also allows... More

Cannot believe other reviews. This is a horrible restaurant. Entrance badly sign posted from car park meaning entrance into restaurant was from empty bar through back of service area - not a good start. Weird decor which was a cross between old lady twee & ski chalet wood. Menu was random, Italian, Asian with pizzas & salads, yuk! Vastly over... More

Hi, We never enjoy hearing that we so vastly missed living up to expectations, but it does happen on occasion. From your review, I gather that you ate upstairs in our Haye Loft which is comprised of the lounge and dessert room. The rooms were designed for sentimentality to match the apartments which were over the restaurant for many years... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! No need to go downtown for fine dining... we love our location next to Joan M Durante park on the Key. It's perfect for taking a nice stroll on the boardwalk through the mangroves (great view of Sarasota from across the bay!) and then enjoying a nice meal with us. More
