This by far is the #1 restaurant in Destin, Florida. I can’t recall going to any restaurant in my travels where the food is consistently excellent.
This restaurant is the main highlight of my trips to Destin. The first thing we discuss is what night/nights do we want to go to Bijoux.
Not only is the food and presentation deserving of 3 Michelin Stars, their bar and wine selection is top shelf.
Let’s talk about service. I do like having the same server that knows me when I go to a restaurant regularly, but the staff is so prepared, k own their menu and is ready to make suggestions based on the information you share with them about your tastes. They are very low key and not intrusive. Half of the time I don’t even realize my water has been refilled. I would say they move like ninjas.
The atmosphere is formal to casual. It’s a beach town and I’ve seen all types i there enjoying the food and service. But please at least take a shower before you dine here.

If you haven’t tried Bijoux while living in or visiting Destin, you are missing out on a culinary delight; One that will keep you coming back.

My husband and I have been in the Fine Dining industry for 25 years. It is hard for us to find a place that checks all the boxes, Bijoux checked them all! Plus more!

Party of 7. No one was impressed. For the price, the quality of food as well as service was really disappointing. The apps were good... that really was all that above par. Again, for the price... not impressed. If less expensive, it would have been fine. However at $65 for a rib-eye, it has better be a damn good rib-eye... it just wasn't. This was a party of 7 people, so we tried multiple entrees. NO ONE was pleased their meal, but agreed that the appetizers (though small portions) and bread were very good. Hmmmmm. We will not be returning. Service was lackluster and rushed, though the food itself was quite slow. My mother never, I repeat never, received the single glass of wine she ordered. This was just one example. Also, it cannot be blamed on being an off night etc. It was not crowded... they really just did not do a good job.

We have been bragging about Bijoux to my in-laws and finally took them last Saturday. As we have come to expect, every night Chef Holly is just incredible with her creative menu. Elena's service always makes us feel like family. William is always attentive with his wine selections.
There simply is no better fine dining experience in the area and we've enjoyed them all.
Thank you all for another amazing evening!

The meal was okay for the price and expectations of the restaurant.
I've been one other time and service was slow and it has not changed.
The waitress apologized, but it took way to long to get approached at the table as we sat there waiting for 15 min.
I probably will not go back unless a large group is going and it's booked.
The steak was not as tender as a filet should be but it was tasty.
Overall it was not terrible but there is better places to eat in the area for less money.

The food was outstanding and the service was perfect. Wait staff was personal and attentive without being intrusive. Even had something to help with stains when wine was spilled! I would save it for a special occasion as it is a bit pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for. Just what we wanted for celebrating our anniversary!

My boyfriend and I had a date night here on Saturday because we’re on family vacation and opted for a break from the kiddos for an evening out to dinner. We made a reservation on Open Table for 9. When we arrived,
Our table wasn’t ready yet and we were given the choice to eat at the bar or wait. Thankfully we waited less than 10 minutes for a table. The food was excellent. We’ll definitely return!

As usual. Outstanding service and cuisine. The only way I can describe the Chocolate Hazelnut cake is decadent. The reduction in tables adds to quiet and intimacy but I take a little more noise to end this pandemic.

First time visiting Bijoux and we liked it so much we're going back. The atmosphere was pleasant and noise level would have been the same except for one boisterous individual a few tables away, but the restaurant cannot be faulted for that.

We are "foodies" and thus have high expectations of our fine dining choices and Bijoux delivered! My wife had the crab beignet appetizer and said it was the best appetizer she's ever had. My appetizer choice was the fried lobster tail which was wonderful. We both ordered the pear salad and the filet.

The food was exceptional; the filet was well seasoned and cooked to perfection (med rare), served with a lump of melted butter on top. Desserts are all made in house and our choices (strawberry short cake, cheesecake) were great.

As stated, we're going back for more this week. Service was excellent and we highly recommend based on our first visit.

We discovered Bijoux on our second trip to Destin, and wow. Everything from start to finish was amazing. The cocktails were creative and refreshing--we had the watermelon jalapeño martini and ruby slipper. The red snapper special and tres leches dessert were both delicious. The service was great, and we were very impressed with their response to COVID-19. This is our new favorite restaurant in the Destin area.
