4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a good place to visit for a special occasion as it is a little pricey. However, the food is excellent and the service is outstanding.

We have live here full time for 4 years. Yet, we never had the privilege of going to this amazing restaurant. All of it's accolades are true and spot on. We are planning to go back in the next month and can't wait.

Amazing place to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. The Haye Loft is great for a more casual dinner!

Hi Becky, Thank you for the quick review! We do have quite a few celebrations here - some folks return every year on their Anniversary, which is always nice to see! And the Haye Loft is great for a more casual atmosphere with a slightly abbreviated menu and, in the summer months, we have our Summer Prix Fixe upstairs where... More

You have two options - Euphemia Haye or the Haye Loft (which is upstairs and more casual with lighter fare and no reservations required/designed for walk ins). For Euphemia Haye proper be sure to make a reservation especially "in season". First class service from an attentive staff. Started with the tossed greens salad that was very fresh with an excellent... More

We are so glad that you had such a wonderful experience! And that you wrote such a nice review explaining both our fine dining and the upstairs Haye Loft. Just a quick clarification, we have live music nightly that begins at 7:30. You offer great advice with making sure you have the time to enjoy both the fine dining downstairs... More

Old, rustic seaside cottage on the outside, hanging vines, white tablecloths and excellent service on the inside. The food? The food is every bit as delicious as promised! My husband had the Filet, I had the Key West Snapper and we shared the creamed spinach. Everything was cooked to perfection. Did I mention the wine selection and sinful desserts? Highly... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! It's always nice to hear that people appreciate the rustic, yet refined, romantic atmosphere. And the food, of course! The Key West Snapper is one of my personal favorites, so I'd say you made a great choice. We hope to see you again and, if you like Brussels Sprouts, I'd... More

We had dinner at Euphemia Haye tonight and it was fabulous! My wife had the duck, which she declared is her favorite dish in the entire world (we have been to 109 countries) and that this restaurant is #1 of all she has tried. I had the king salmon special and it was prepared to perfection, with crab meat and... More

High end restaurant with a special desert second floor with spectacular cakes. Restaurant is gourmet on long boat key, romantic old world Florida. Lower rating because greeter was texting and ignoring guests. Food is good but over priced for quality.

Thank you for your review! It's always nice to hear when someone appreciates our romantic old Florida charm and, of course, the dessert room. I am sorry that you experienced a member of our team more involved with a text conversation than with the guests. We have spoken with all of our staff about their cell phone usage. We hope... More

From all the reviews and storied history, we expected more. The food was fine, but not great. My husband ordered the Peppered Steak which is one of their specialties per our server. He ordered medium, but received a steak which was about half well done and half med-well. I had the Red Snapper and it was good, but nothing special.... More
