Diner Reviews
  • "I had the Chilean sea bass. It was moist seasoned with herbs in a beuree blanc sauce over rice and was good. My wife had the venison which was excellent. Nice wine selection. Loved the Brussels sprouts."
    Dined on 8/29/2014
  • "Nice bar area. Recommend drinks and apps not dinner. Food was fancier than it was good. Emphasis seemed to be on how it reads on the menu and looks on the plate as opposed to being well-prepared and tasty."
    Dined on 8/28/2014
  • "I always have a great time. Wine list and upscale dining. Service is excellent. My "go-to" place in Destin"
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "The happy hour is great. The apps and drinks during happy hour are a good deal and the bar-tending staff knows their stuff. The entrees at dinner were great. The steak was prepared perfectly. Negatives, Don't sit on the booths. The booth seats are worn out and uncomfortable. In addition to a marked up wine list, you may notice some fruit flies around the restaurant. For the price, we expected a better dinner environment but will go back for the happy hour"

  • "This was our second trip to Cuvee while on vacation. We've enjoyed everything we have had there! Great food, great atmosphere, live bands in the bar area...great evening!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "This was a return visit for me and first time for a friend who came with me. Chef Tim Creehan never disappoints. We had the pork belly for our appetizer and Grouper Vince for our entrée. Both were as delicious as I remember. We were eating light so did not order the banana cream pie which is one of the best desserts you will find in Destin. This is a wonderful restaurant to take friends and family to. You are never rushed but the service is over the top. We had Jacob who did a wonderful job as our waiter, was always there but not intrusive. I would rate this restaurant as a 10 if I could."

  • "I am a resident living in Miramar Beach...I dine out quite often. The food was good however for the price versus the quality and quantity it was quite over priced. Portions versus price were underwhelming....service was top notch with a stellar wine list. There are many other gulf coast restaurants that easily top Cuvee Bistro for value."

  • "Wonderful food! Service very attentive but not overbearing. Highly recommend this place. But plan to spend a lot of money if you get appetizers, desserts and drinks."

  • "We took my sister who was visiting from Dallas to Cuvee for dinner last night. It far exceeding our expectations. Our reservations were honored with a warm greeting from the host and it just kept getting better. The beautiful and active bar at the entrance plus live band really added to the level of energy, we were then escorted to a really beautiful and quiet dining area that set the stage for a remarkable dining experience. The sparkling water and bread service and the extensive wine list were all provided by our most excellent server, Dylan. We could not have asked for better service, atmosphere, or food and the way it was prepared. Thank you Cuvee for a most enjoyable night out. The attention to detail and striving for perfection shows."

  • "Love this place every time we r in Destin. Tangle wood farms chicken is worth the wait. My grouper was fresh, perfectly prepared. Try the banana cream...dessert. It won't disappoint"
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Had a reservation and came in promptly greeted. Sat down and service was friendly as well as knowledgeable. If someone has not been there before, it is a great place to impress a date or just relax a have a nice meal. They have a variety of flavors and they are always improving the menu and wine list."

  • "The food was phenomenal. Each person in our large party enjoyed the culinary delights we ordered. Appetizers were perfect, and meals were amazing. While we were ok with the food pricing, understanding the care and exoisite preparation given to each dish, we were appalled to learn the extreme mark up in alcohol. While most restaurants mark up a bottle of wine by 30%, Cuvée charges $60 for a bottle of wine you could purchase for $10-15 at any given liquor store. The specific example from our dining was Trinitas Moscato, which averages for $12 a bottle normally, and we were charged $60. Beware!"

  • "Nice place, menu, etc. coulda been great. Oyster app. Over cooked.. Shoulda been great. Fried lobster no flavor..or butter? Over sweet potato purée ? Strange combo but ok.. Wine list was extensive, but to many $100 bottles and not enough $50 bottles. $150 dinner for two with app and bottle of wine. Coulda, shoulda been worth it.."

  • "We are out of towners who happened on the the bistro through a Yelp review by a local. This was our second visit and we plan on returning each time we travel to Destin. This establishment is unbelievable! The food superb and the service impeccable."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Cuvée Bistro is a winner. Very nice restaurant.... Has a great bar as you enter the building. I could see myself sitting at this bar and dining often if I was in the area more often. Although it is a lomg drive from 30A, it is definately worth the trip. I would 100% recommend this as a regular if staying in the Destin/Sandestin area."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Cuvee Bistro provided one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The food was incredible and unique. I had dinner with my wife, kids, and father and we all left very impressed and satisfied. I have visited many fine restaurants, and this one is up there with some of the best. It was the icing on the cake to top off a wonderful vacation."

  • "Overrated. Salty sauces and less than fresh fish. Good wine selection. No reason to fight destin traffic to get to this spot."

  • "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!"

  • "our favorite in Destin and it would be in any other city. Chef Creehan is a genius with food."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We have been to Destin twice in the last two years and each time we went to Cuvée. The ambiance is great and the service is always excellent. But the best part is the food! We have yet to be disappointed. Definitely recommend on your next vacation to stop by and enjoy!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "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."

    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "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"
