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

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

I thought I had to go to a place located in the downtown area or a high end hotel to find a treasure hidden next to the gulf of mexico if you are in the area please make a reservation an prepare yourself

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

The best upscale restaurant on the island. I like to sit in the downstairs bar area. booths only hold four. In an old house. The duck and the pepper steak are very good. Upstairs is a bar an a casual area to eat which is nice. Good deserts

EuphemiaHaye, Manager at Euphemia Haye Restaurant, responded to this review

Hi Berel, Thanks for the wonderful compliments! You're giving away one of the best kept secrets - the great booths in the Tavern Room downstairs. Some people prefer the activity of the dining room while many of our regulars prefer the atmosphere of the Tavern room (and, because it's smaller, it's often a bit quieter!). Because it's booth seating and... More

We very much enjoyed coming here for wine, pizza, entertainment and of course dessert. We always got the apple crumble a la mode. Slice was huge. But it is not an inexpensive visit.

We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the time you spent with us. The Haye Loft has great gourmet pizza - my favorite is the BBQ Duck & Shiitake mushroom. So good! Don's Apple Pie is legendary - we make our Apple Sorbet with the run off from the pie and, I hate to say it, it may be even... More
