I hated to write this review but, I've been here 4 or 5 times in the last 4 years and have never had a good meal. My first meal consisted of shrimp "bland" another was overly lemon flavored Sweetbreads. The last was dry red snapper with a renegade BONE.

We were visiting friends who live in the area and they said we had to go to the Haye Loft for dessert. I can only say that the big problem is choosing which dessert to select. Standing there looking at the various choices is truly daunting. Each of the six of us was happy with our choice. A fun place... More

So many yummy choices! It would be interesting to have a choice of a sampling of the cold desserts and another choice to order the warm desserts to share with the table.

We chose the Haye Loft for our friends' birthday. The booth was tight for 4 people and the food and service was so-so at best. The plates were too small for easy eating and all dinners were not served at the same time. This place is overrated in my opinion.

We are shocked to hear that you felt our booth was tight! They are much larger than our downstairs booths which regularly and comfortably seat 4. Our plates are normal size if not ample and portions very generous, it is disappointing that you did not love the food. We are wondering if you shared some items and then were given... More

The desert menu is phenomenal. There is something for almost any palette. It is a very cozy spot above the restaurant and worth visiting.

I usually have just soup and salad but there is a wide choice followed of course by the delicous desserts.

What a spectacular, classy, fun piano bar with a limited menu & an adjacent yummy Dessert Room. The bar is beautiful and the bartenders are so friendly! It typically attracts an older crowd, & is housed above an upscale restaurant. It's a pleasure to go to this musical establishment.

Upstairs in the"loft" one can eat, have dessert or just a drink. Nice atmosphere with music most nights. We rarely eat here but the desserts are fantastic. This is also a nice place for an after dinner drink and that is what we come here for. It can get crowded but always a friendly crowd
