Very good food. Good service. Chef Ray visits tables. But last 2 visits have run out of my favorite chocolate Mousse dessert.

On Gulf of Mexico drive near the North fire station. Tucked away with understated signage. We had a lovely dinner with excellent service. Our waiter's name was Mike. This is one of the more upscale places on LBK and while not inexpensive it is an...More

I am a little baffled by the negative reviews. The only negative thing I could say is that we were greated at the door and asked if we had reservations. We replied "yes", the gentleman then grabbed four menus and just started walking. No hello,...More

Super bummed about our visit yesterday. I hate giving negative reviews to places that were once so beloved by me! Our service was not great. Our drinks were empty several times with our server passing our table often. Our once 5 star Brussels Sprouts were...More

Used the loft restaurant (not the restaurant downstairs) for dinner but was not impressed with the service. The waitress was too casual if not careless. It's more like a country pub where one shouldn't expect attentative service. The food was pretty average in the sense...More

I move to longboat Key in November of last year. I lived in Sarasota part time for 3 years total. Hands down the best restaurant in the Sarasota area. The upstairs bar is great anytime and the deserts on display there are to die for....More

Ate here for birthday. It is a lovely setting but you have to really look for the building. Google maps takes you a block away. The sign is light yellow and surrounded by beautiful foliage. The waiters were great, friendly, helpful. Food was delicious. Pistachio...More

Hi Jeffrey, You will have to come back again for dessert! I would suggest either the Peanut Butter Mouse Pie with Myers Rum & Dark Chocolate Icing. It is heavenly but a bit rich. The Apple Walnut Crumble is another one of my favorites -...More

We love eating in the small bar, it's very cozy and intimate. The pepper steak is a favorite. We always want to try the dessert, but never have room.

Hi Linda, Isn't the Peppered Steak amazing... it's my go to birthday treat. Do try to save room for dessert or, even, take a piece home with you. They are worth every bite!

We had a nice dinner, in the happening atmosphere of Euphemia Haye. It's been there for over thirty years I think. Wonderful service! The menu had Fried Green Tomatoes on their appetizer list. Rarely found, and a great treat. The snapper was nicely done and...More

Hi Suzy, Thank you for taking the time to write a review! You are correct, Euphemia Haye opened in 1975 and Chef Ray & D'Arcy Arpke have owned it since 1980. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal and hope to see you...More

Call them about seating in the Loft- we've always gone up there after dinner for dessert. I would say resort wear dressy for clothes, definitely not shorts and tanks tops, but a nice sundress would be ok. They have a wonderful Caesar salad, and fish if you eat it. Call, I'm sure they would happily answer all your questions 😃
