Love Bijoux!! Our favorite restaurant in Destin!!
My wife and I chose to spend our anniversary dinner at Bijoux and left very underwhelmed. She had the filet which was phenomenal. Highly recommend. However, I had the shrimp and grits and found it to be wanting. The grits were stone ground grits, but I felt they had a strange texture, almost like mashed potatoes. It definitely did not taste gritty like many other Shrimp & Grits dishes I’ve had before that also used stone ground grits. I felt this dish also lacked in flavor as well.
The service was very lacking. We waited for at least 9 minutes to even be greeted and sat there waiting about 5 minutes before someone even brought us water. The server was very routine oriented and wasn’t very welcoming or personable. We ordered a nice bottle of wine and our food at the same time...as we had already had plenty of time to review the menu while waiting to be greeted. Wine came and the food was so quick behind it that we were only able to enjoy one glass before we were done with our meal. We had to get the bottle packaged to take home. If we would have known it would be so quick we would have just ordered two glasses. All said and done, we were seated at 630 and was out of there at 710. Although it was fast, I don’t exactly look for speed in an evening fine dining experience. The whole experience was just not what I’m accustomed to with other fine dining restaurants and we will most likely not be back.
Oh, and lastly, the waitress said, “I assume this is for a special occasion?” Like, we looked out of place at this establishment. I’m sure she didn’t mean anything by it, but it was just off-putting.
The following night, we ate at Louisiana Lagniappe for their $54 dinner special for two with a bottle of wine and the service and food were exceptional...for a third of the price.
This was our second time here for Valentine’s Day and it didn’t disappoint. Not only was our food, melt-in-your mouth delicious, but the service was fantastic. If you’re looking for steak, the “Black Skillet” Filet is perfect.
Valentine’s Day:, great cocktails and great deserts. Grouper a bit greasy and snapper special very salty.nice romantic ambience
Great meal and good service. Loved the variety of the menu. Arrive early and try the fries on the bar menu while you wait for your table.
Fabulous birthday meals and service in a perfect setting!
Great food. Great service. Went there for Valentine's day. Would go back again.
Excellent food and service. Fresh red snapper was off the charts!
Such a wonderful evening. The atmosphere was perfect, quiet and relaxing. Enjoyed sitting at the beautiful bar before our table was ready. The food and service were excellent! The Snapper Special was amazing. We plan to go back soon!!!
Food and service were both outstanding. We always make plans to eat a Bijoux when in the Destin area.
Delicious food! Our favorite restaurant during our visit. Service was excellent!
We enjoyed our dinner . Our server was very helpful in selecting entrees and very attentive. The lighting was very dim and it was hard to. See the menu. Our appetizer ( crab beignets) were outstanding- the homemade bread and dipping oil delicious! We both had the specials- one steak and one snapper. Both were very good - not memorable but good. I was disappointed in the $19 glass of cake bread Chardonnay. For the price I was expecting more - but overall a nice dinner out
The food was the best we had in the area! Michael (our server) was the best too!
Best place I’ve found in the area among many good choices. There’s nothing to criticize and much to praise
Fantastic meal. The service was terrific. Great menu. A very enjoyable evening.
Great food great service. Thanks Jack for interesting menu selections.
Food was great! Service was friendly.
Quiet, nice, elegant. Had a wedge salad and a pan cooked filet mignon. Both excellent. My wife had duck appetizer and diver scallops. Both excellent. Cost was about $100/plate including 2 drinks each and tip. Service was attentive and not overbearing. A great choice when in Sandestin.
The decor is lovely. Service was very good. The food was outstanding! Lobster spring rolls, beet salad, grouper almond one and tuna- all delicious and attractively plated! House made ice creams were great- nice variety of flavors.
We had an absolutely wonderful evening dining and celebrating my Mom's Birthday! I Highly recommend Bijoux to everyone.
If you are in the Sandestin, Florida area and would like an upscale meal I can reliably recommend Bijoux. Everything was good except for boring bread and stale lavosh. We had Grouper and Red Snapper which were very good but the Snapper was 40something $ and we didn't feel like that was a good value. The tuna carpaccio appetizer and the pineapple dessert was fantastic. Service was great from the bar to the table.
Every dish, every meal, every time is superb.
Outstanding food, ambiance and service. Excellent experience and look forward to returning soon.
This was the most phenomenal dinner I’ve had in a while. We had the filet and red snapper. Our waiter was outstanding as well, Michael.
Great meal, one of favorite places at the beach. I had snapper and my wife had grouper, both were excellent. Our Server, Lauren was exceptional.
Loved everything about this place!!!
First time - nice theme - appetizers were well presented - tasty and portioned well - scallops were perfect as was the grouper - great wine list. Staff friendly and helpful
NYE dinner was divine. I wished for more selection for the price paid and the event we were celebrating. Everything was beautiful as far as food and ambience. Professional, non intrusive service was a plus. Thank you so much!
As always, the food and beverages were excellent, and the service was outstanding!!! The decorations for New Year's Eve were incredible!!! Good job!!!
The food is always excellent. Great cheese plate and salad. The grouper is really good and so are the steaks. The service was really slow. It was crowded but just took forever to get food. They really need to do something about the desserts. They just don't measure up to the rest of the food. How about some plain old chocolate cake, or pecan pie ? The only reason we hesitate to go back more often than we have is the desserts. Overall this is a really good restaurant.
Food, service were excellent. A crying baby was at table beside us—a bit annoying but understand kids are brought to nice restaurants.
We have dined here several times. The bar drinks are weak on liquor content.
Always have a great experience at bijoux. Happy hour with Harry was fun and a great value. Dinner was awesome with Michael and didn’t disappoint. We tried the fish special of the night and it was superb. I highly recommend this place. Whenever in town I dine here.
Excellent experience as always. Liz and Teri took super care of us. The food was amazing. We love coming back every time.
Bijoux is a local's go-to restaurant. A modern, atmosphere with a contemporary bar and elegant dining room. Service and food are always first class. Delightful seasonal specials. Highly recommended.
BETSY was awesome and our meal was wonderful! Thank you.
Excellent food and service.
Went for Christmas Eve dinner. Service was great. Filet,Scallops delicious. Grouper very mediocre. Needed a sauce or something.
Christmas Eve dinner with family.
Delicious food and wonderful service! The martinis were oh so good, too! The black skillet steak was one of the best I ever had. The grouper was prepared well and the sauce was so tasty. They are glad to switch your sides to suit your taste. Highly recommend you splurge and have a fine dining experience at Bijoux!
