Yes, this is an incredibly romantic spot and great for couples, but as a solo diner wanting to listen to live music, I also felt welcomed and valued by the staff and regulars. The pizza was incredible and came accompanied by a solid red wine recommended by the bartender. The "dessert room" is a den of temptation! No reservations are... More

Hubby and I haven't been to the Haye Loft for awhile, and decided to scoot over for a cocktail and bite to eat last night. 'The Season', as January, February, and March is called on Florida's gulf coast, is in full swing, so who knew if we would find a spot at the bar! Thanks to Eric, the great bartender... More

You can avoid the steep prices at the downstairs restaurant and still have a delicious desert upstairs.

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.

D'Arcy A, Owner at Haye Loft, responded to this review

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.
