Vue on 30A
We had a wonderful dinner.We had a wonderful dinner. Great food and great service. We sat next to the windows for a beautiful view of the ocean. This was our favorite restraurant while here on vacation.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful view of the sunsertBeautiful view of the sunsert over the Gulf. Venison appetizer and the Gorgonzola shrimp were amazing! Also recommend the pistachio grouper and scallop main courses. Extensive wine list with reasonable prices. Acceptable selection of wines by the glass. Staff were knowledgeable regarding the menu and made good recommendations. Only down side was the outdoor band which while Ok was just too loud for quiet indoor dining.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been coming to theWe have been coming to the Emerald Coast for 25 years and the restaurants along CR 30-A have proliferated year by year. Vue is a new one but it rocketed to the top of our list of places to dine when we feel like having a really special meal. The ambiance inside is quite modern and beautiful; very light and airy, Florida-style. The service was friendly and efficient both at the bar before the meal and at the table with our waiter from Louisiana. But it was the food above all that rocked. As good as any you will find in the area and we know from years of experience. This restaurant is equal to any ... The one criticism we had was that on the night of our maiden visit, there was an extremely loud singer/band on the outdoor patio.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a vue!!There are many good restaurants littered along 30a, but very few sit right on the beach side as does the Vue. Along with the phenomenal view of the sunset over the water, the food and service were perfect compliments. The Lobster Trio was our favorite appetizer. Everything was delicious!
A great view and delicious food would be good enough. But the service at the Vue was impeccable. Relaxed, crisp, efficient and appropriately attentive, yet unobtrusive. We enjoyed their honest assessment of the warbling of the "entertainment" on the patio--that "entertainment" was the only downside to an outstanding evening.
And to top it off, the sommelier came by and gave my wife a great recommendation on a glass of wine for after dinner!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest on 30AOutstanding service, quality, quantity and presentation.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful ambience.Enjoyed our experience very much. Food and service was great and it's a beautiful restaurant and setting.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Great Dining ExperienceBy far our favorite fine dining restaurant in the Destin area,5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SunsetGreat food, wonderful service and a great view of the sun setting over the gulf!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWow....great findHaving a place in the area, we often think that we know most of the restaurants there. A friend recommended the Vue, which I had not heard of. We sat out on the terrace, which gave us a beautiful ocean view. The staff couldn't have been more courteous. The food was incredible. I tried one of my daughter's scallops, and it may be the best scallop I have ever eaten. I had the steak special of the evening. I can't recall the cut, but it was large, cooked properly, tasted great, but too much. I couldn't finish it. The Vue is a great find. I am looking forward to going back.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMname said it allpatio was noisy so they moved us to a smaller secluded patio with a great view of the sunset and beach. Servicer was attentive and the staff kept checking on us. The food was great. We would recommend highly.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBest view on the beachGreat food and excellent service with the best view on the beach. The chief Gio is a great chef and adds a lot to the dining expeience.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was an outstanding meal,This was an outstanding meal, from the appetizer to dessert!!!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe View at VueMy husband and I had brunch at the Vue this past Sunday. The view, the food and the service were exceptional! We will definitely be back for dinner or lunch very soon.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect view & food!We celebrated our wedding anniversary here while visiting Santa Rosa Beach. It was our first time to visit the Vue and we highly recommend it! The restaurant is on the beach and the view is spectacular! My husband and I had steaks and they were delicious. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. Overall, a very pleasant experience!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinnerMade reservations for 7 pm, but they gladly took us earlier. 28th wedding anniversary and I selected for the gulf view and menu. They were very accommodating. Good service. I had the scallops and my wife the pistachio encrusted grouper. Both were excellent. With soup, 2 entree's and 1 glass if wine, tab was just over $100 with tip. A little pricey, but worth it for the view alone. Would highly recommend.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely Amazing!!!What a diamond of a find! Amazing meal. This is now our favorite place to dine on all of 30-A and you can not the beat the view anywhere along 30-A. Perfect place for sunset. Food was outstanding. Can't wait to go back. Ask for Elena to be your server. We even stayed after dinner and listen to this incredible female guitar player from Nashville on their patio. It was a perfect evening.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Ocean ViewHad a Sunday brunch at this restaurant; view of the Gulf is fantastic; excellent Bloody Mary; staff very accommodating and pleasant.
I had oyster benedict with only three fried oysters....which was a bit of a disappointment but the dish was very tasty. My husband got a Cobb-type salad with baby shrimp and crab.....looked delicious; he said it was good; the restaurant was out of Blue Cheese dressing however.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh noteWe dined at Vue the last night of our vacation and wow...it was the best meal we had all week. The ambience, service, and food were amazing. Both my husband and I had steak and they were cooked to perfection, served over mashed potatoes, but started with a goat cheese salad. Of corse, we couldn't skip desert so we ended our meal with the key lime pie....it was unbelievable. What a great way to end a great vacation but on our next trip, we will make this our first stop.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our 10 year anniversaryThis was our 10 year anniversary trip and the entire experience was truly the best experience we've ever had. Thank you!!! We will return again soon! No complaints!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSandi our waitress was verySandi our waitress was very good and personable. Had a great evening watching the sunset then watching the full moon and reflection on the water.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Vue a special dining experienceThe Vue is Our new favorite spot on 30A! The food is superb and the service is excellent! Attention to details and service is fabulous! The views are spectacular of the Gulf of Mexico! Our new favorite spot on 30A! A gem on 30A!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!The view was spectacular! The food was amazing. I had the Angus Tenderloin Benedict for Sunday brunch. I travel for business and steakhouses are standard fare for dinner. Most do not compare with what was served at Vue.
The only thing I found odd, and trust me, it won't keep me from eating there again, was the amount of bread served. We were given blueberry muffins for a starter, then the Benedict came on biscuits as expected, but it was served with a side of toast. A side of fruit would seem more fitting. Again, I will absolutely continue to eat here. My husband ordered the seafood omelet and practically licked the plate clean.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOMEVery simple.....a totally AWESOME experience. Have been to several mediocre and generally overpriced restaurants in the Sandestin, Santa Rosa, Watercolor area. Stumbled upon Vue 30 by sheer luck (Opentable). Brooke the manager and the entire staff made this a memorable evening for the wife and I. And of course, the Gulf view is spectacular. Much more of a local atmosphere instead of touristy, which was a huge plus for us.
Vue on 30A is at the top of our short list when we are back in the area.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing view of sunsetPretty upscale decor w amazing gulf front view. Interesting menu items. Lobster bisque delicious!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Engagement!On April 15th I asked my best friend to marry me at The Vue on 30A and it couldn't not have been more prefect. The staff was very mindful and aware of our special moment and gave us the privacy that we needed. We look forward to returning to Santa Rosa and the Vue to celebrate our engagement. We are even considering getting married there.
Thanks!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great experience. WeHad a great experience. We celebrated our anniversary and it was the perfect spot. Had the fruits de mer and the pistachio grouper and both were excellent. The view can't be beat and the bar/restaurant had a modern vibe with live music. I was worried it would be stuffy or old based on some other reviews and that wasn't the case at all. They've done an excellent job updating everything and it feels fresh and modern on the inside.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLives up to it's name!We love the Vue. It definitely lives up to it's name....amazing view.
The food is always good. This trip was no exception. The Vue is always a "must visit" on our 30A trips.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDING EVERYTHINGBeautiful restaurant that has plenty of open space between tables that is very odd to see these days. The ambiance is outstanding. We have eaten up and down 30A as well as Destin and I will say Vue is one of the best. 5 star food and dining for a reasonable price that the everday person can afford at any time.
I picked this restaurant for my 40th B-day dinner and I WILL BE BACK and CANT WAIT!
The server was excellent at presenting.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe booked Vue on 30A for theWe booked Vue on 30A for the gulf front location, but were very impressed by the exceptional menu, great food and excellent service.

The timing of the dinner was perfect. We never felt pressure to hurry nor did we wait an excessive time for anything. We will be back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit toThis was our first visit to Vue. It is one of the only restaurants in the area (thats not a themed beach bar & restaurant) that has an ocean view. Food was well prepared and delicious. My only criticism is that the service was slow. I think our server had too many tables to cover. But we will definitely be back and recommend to our friends.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe live on 30A and it wasWe live on 30A and it was our first time to visit this restaurant ... and we were not disappointed. The beach view at sunset is great, and there are few fine dining restaurants on the beach in this area ... this is the one with a "Vue"! The seafood dishes we ordered (scallops and shrimp)were excellently prepared and well presented. We were able to get a reservation one day ahead, even during "spring break", and when we arrived the restaurant seemed full, but we were seated immediately, and at a requested window-side table. Overall, a great experience.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time. Our serverHad a great time. Our server was wonderful and helpful. Scenery was spectacular as usual.
