Diner Reviews
  • "Overrated. Salty sauces and less than fresh fish. Good wine selection. No reason to fight destin traffic to get to this spot."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The food was fantastic and the service was great! We celebrated our 10th Anniversary here and were treated to a super sampler of desserts to help us celebrate. Such a memorable celebration and Tim was the consummate host. Thanks, Cuvee Bistro!"

  • "Nice looking place. Relatively quiet and the ambience could be described as romantic. That's it though. The waiter, who said he had worked there for 2 yrs, performed like a well-intentioned rookie - way too attentive but to the tasks at hand, not to us. Scraping crumbs, rearranging utensils, leaving the bottle of water at the table but constantly returning to interrupt conversations to ask how we're doing and to top off our glasses when we could easily have done it ourselves if we felt it was necessary. I mean it was sitting on our table. He even coached me by telling me "this is the salad fork" as he placed it on the table. I know about the salad fork - thanks. On top of all of that, the food was surprisingly ... meh. Not worth the money."

  • "our favorite in Destin and it would be in any other city. Chef Creehan is a genius with food."

  • "Excellent dining experience. We were celebrating our anniversary and also had our young son with us. While his is a fine dining establishment, the server was so awesome and catered to our son. The food was awesome! A very great experience! Very quiet adult dining! Wonderful tuna dish and mussels!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "When I'm in Destin I'm always eating at Cuvee. I love this place and so does my girlfriend. There are so many good restaurants in the area but I always eat at Cuvee once or twice a week when in town. So glad Tim and the gang are opening up another Cuvee on 98/30A. Can't wait. Be back in two weeks keep my seat warm. Thanks."

  • "The food was the best we had in the Destin area. It does a good job of being more than just a place serving mediocre fish dishes that you find with many places in the area. Highlights were the tomato soup, and lobster, but we were most impressed with the server who not only gave good advice but also seemed to actually like what he was doing and made for a great experience"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "What a great find. We had no expectations and left looking forward to returning. The food was fantastic and the wine list although on the younger side had many great options. Ask for the bar menu too. The flatbreads make a great starter. Our waitress was attentive but not hovering. It was great!"

  • "Great service and excellent food. We had the New Zealand venison and the grouper and it was easily our best meal on the trip."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Anniversary dinner. Wonderful service, extraordinary food (fried green tomatoes very different from The Whistle Stop Cafe; Grouper Vince is the best grouper we've ever had, dessert sampler is a real treat!). A gem anywhere, happy to find in Destin."

  • "Food was good, but not for the price. $9 for a wedge salad and $33 for a small steak is too much."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "I was in Destin for a work trip and everyone that I dined with took me to seafood restaurants. I found Cuvee Bistro online and was happy to dine alone there. The service was stellar, the vegetarian options were mostly from the "sides" but they made a whole plate for me of the sides that I chose. It was the best meal I have had in a long time. The wine list is very good and the atmosphere was just right."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "We always hit Cuvée during our visits to Destin. The staff is always courteous and efficient, and the food is second to none. Seafood is always fresh! Can't wait for our next visit."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "No doubt, some of the best food on the Emerald Coast. Server knowledgeable about the menu and wines. Kind and courteous, Reccomend reservations. and be sure to say hi to the cute dog at the hostess desk."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "I have been to Cuvee before and really enjoyed it. However, this time I did not have as good an experience. The lighting was harsh and strange. Our waiter was nice but new and not very good. The food was mediocre. I just wanted a glass of wine rather than a bottle but there was not much offered that way. It seemed very overpriced for what we got out of it. With all the other great places to dine in Destin, I doubt I will be back."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Fabulous food! Outstanding service! Our third time to visit in 3 weeks and will return next week for a fantastic dinner. "

  • "Noise level was very high at first, but a noisy table left to help quiet things down some. We had a very friendly and professional waiter who did an outstanding job. Food was very good and had an outstanding Pinot Noir. Very busy even on a Thursday night so make sure you have reservations during busy season. "

  • "We used to come to this restaurant when we came to Destin often while living in Biloxi. Since Katrina blew us away and we moved west, we have not been back to the area until now, over 10 years later. Visiting with friends from Toronto and Houston, we wanted to bring them to our favorite restaurant after their name change from Cuvee Beach. How pleasant to find this restaurant as wonderful and enjoyable as it was before! There have been some structural changes inside, but the terrific service began with the reservation-confirming phone call. An outstanding hostess seated us the second we walked in and handed us the perfect wine list. Yvonne did a great job with the creative menu and took care of us beyond our expectations. Thank you!!!!!"

  • "Every thing was sheer delight, including ambience, service, food, wine, and did we mention the service?"
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "We have been wanting to try Cuvee Bistro for quite a while. Just didn't get the chance. We were not disappointed. The service was awesome, the wait staff attentive but not overly burdensome. Food was very good, well presented and perfect size portions. Wine list is great with several choices for half bottles. We will definitely be back. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Great Destin dinner choice. Wine menu is excellent and diverse dinner options. Duck was delicious! Happy hour (11am-9pm) is nice, but be careful since only food and a few drinks are discounted. Overall highly recommend. "

  • "nice bar, good decor, good food. a little tourist-y (pushy bartenders, constantly-smiling hostess), but better than most panhandle choices. "
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "We visited Cuvee on Spring Break. Nice place..the bar was crowded and lively, however, we had our 10 year old son with us. I would not recommend this place for children under 12 years old. Our waiter was good, however, he was way too attentive in which I mean he was at our table interacting and interrupted more than I typically care for when I dine out. The food was just average. My son's burger was so charbroiled that we threw it away. My steak was expensive and not the greatest and my husbands fish was a bit tough. Overall, it was just ok...nothing worth writing home about."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "The service was great, but the food was underwhelming."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "The food was very good. Wine choices were extensive and nice. But the service made our evening. Our waitress was accommodating of my hearing impairment, and she was attentive but not overbearing. She knew the menu and the wine list, and made some excellent recommendations. She took this place from above average to memorable. We'll be back."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "We felt welcome from the moment we stepped inside. The European ambiance was easy - sophisticated bistro chic without being overdone or pompous. Our waiter, Colin, was delightful and knowledgeable. I had the wedge salad to start - the dressing and accoutrments were delicious, but would have preferred good old fashioned iceberg lettuce. Love, love, loved the eggplant medallions! And the foie gras, while being very, very rich, was devinely prepared. Disappointed only in the desserts. Key lime pie had a little too much lime and not enough creaminess for my taste and the creme brulee was a bit bland. All in all, however, we had a wonderful 3 hour dining experience with excellent service and food, worthy of any fine restaurant."

  • "Great place! Great food! Reasonably priced! Would definitely go again."
