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

We just had a light meal upstairs. The salad was delicious as was the cavelini. We didn't have any desert, but they sure looked good!

They had a dine to the nines three course dinner to celebrate all the local restaurants. We enjoyed our duck, lamb and shrimp dinners tonight. Then, the deserts blew us away. Teal was a great server too. $29. Great deal.

I will start with the bad. Bartender made my wife wait for a drink for a long time. When he realized his mistake he made the drink and told us the drink was on him. The bill came and the drink was in the bill. Not cool! Next the area where they can improve. Its a shame that they restrict... More

The Haye Loft is much more casual than it's parent restaurant, Euphemia Haye. The Haye Loft has a more casual menu, however, you can order off of the full menu from Euphemia Haye. Both menus are prepared by the fabulous chefs of Euphemia Haye. They also have an incredible dessert bar. You can just walk by the bar and choose... More

Waiter bought me the dessert because the food i had for dinner was so bad. The cake was good. Leftovers are dropped in a box that you can get out later without making a mess.

When we heard that Euphemia Haye, one of the Sarasota area's top-rated restaurants since 1980, gave patrons an opportunity to have dinner downstairs and dessert upstairs, we looked forward to seeing how owner and executive chef Ray was going to pull it off. But the Haye Loft Lounge and Dessert Room makes for an exciting change in the dining tradition.... More
