My class is having our graduation ceremony at Cafe L'Europe in Sarasota, Florida. We had been looking all over town for a venue for six months, and were getting frustrated with restaurants taking months to call us back, asking outrageous prices for meals and to rent space and for the night and changing price estimates on us. Then our class rep googled top ten restaurants in Sarasota and found Cafe L'Europe. It is located in St. Armand's Circle, the classiest shopping district in the city, and they were friendly to work with. They responded to our inquires quickly and did not do the bait and switch the other restaurants tried. The space is free for the night - until they close - and all we pay for are the meals. We had a large menu to pick from and were able to make choices that would be in our price range. Not only that, but some of our classmates are vegan, and brought recipes that they would like to eat the day of graduation, and our coordinator was willing to work with them and their chefs so their dietary needs are met. This week we went to deliver the deposit and meet the event coordinator, who showed us the rooms and answered all our questions. It's decorated in a European style, very tasteful and classy. The coordinator was very patient and gave us a good idea of how many people we can fit in the space. She also confirmed that my teacher with a service dogs would be accommodated. Cafe L'Europe is also well known for its beautiful holiday decorating, so we could not be having our graduation at a better time. Our class is very excited to have such a beautiful venue with such a gracious and patient staff and top-notch food.
