Cuvee Destin Ratings and Reviews

We were in Destin for vacation and I must say it was the best food experience we had all week! We were friends with the former owner and were afraid it wouldn't live up to his standards and it far succeeded that in all regards! It's a must in Destin!!

Our experience at Cuvee was fantastic! First of all, our waiter Jacob was among the best we have ever had. He was attentive without being intrusive and the ultimate in professionalism. We had a seared scallop appetizer and an oyster appetizer with an asian flair. My husband had the pork chop (and ate every bite). I chose the venison and it was delicious! And what a wine list!

My wife had the venison steak which was amazing. I had the lamb special which was cooked perfectly but could have used some additional flavor, but was none-the-less very good too. Our waiter and the rest of the wait staff were courteous, professional, and prompt all night long. All-in-all the experience was very nice. We would definitely go again.

My husband and I have never eaten at Cuvée before and our experience was wonderful.
Why did we go this time? I saw a commercial on the TV in our room and just decided to give it a try.
Cuvée did not disappoint!
Funny when I posted on FB that we were eating there, I had several friends comment back that Cuvée was their favorite Destin restaurant!
Joseph was our server and he was wonderfully attentive and knowledgeable about the wines and entree selections.
Cuvée will be on our 'must' list for future beach trips!

We were a party of 4 with reservations. We were seated right away as it was not crowded. We had a feeling right off the bat that the server wasn't into it or us. I asked about the 35.00 dollar bowl of gumbo on the menu and she said it was great and loaded with seafood. When it arrived there was one very small bite of fish and that was it. No rice at all...and all for 35.00!!! She immediantly returned it to kitchen and removed it from my bill. Our friend ordered scallops with garlic butter which the server said could be done but when it came it was something else. The server also had difficulty remembering who ordered what. Probably will NOT revisit

Amazingly good. Every dish was delicious. Wife had a bone in filet which she described as the best steak she ever had. Fried green tomatoes were wonderful. Portions were generous. Pricey but worth it if you love food.

Very good experience overall, especially the service. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. Cuvée has a great menu and offers nightly specials that are fresh and well-prepared, including excellent seafood choices. The wine list is the best I've seen in the area.

The food was amazing but appetizer portion was too small for the price. Not enough to share but a price of over $15. I eat at highend restaurants on a weekly basis and was disappointed at the size of the app at that price
Cuvee Bistro Never Disappoints
This was our fifth visit to Cuvee and each time it exceeds our expectations. This time around our group started with the Seafood Bisque and the Spinach Salad followed by the roasted half chicken (amazing with a crisp skin and moist delicious meat), giant crab legs (get at least a pound per person), the sea bass, and an unbelievably delicious pasta dish. The restaurant offers an exceptional wine list and the service was on point as always. This is our go to place for fine dining in Destin, and it should be yours too.
"Superb food quality with excellent Service"!
Awesome dining experience! Quality staff explained the menu well and went out of their way to help us enjoy our dining experience! The food was delicious from the appetizer through dessert! We will definitely stop there again for dinner next time we are in the area! Thanks to Jacob our "Server" for helping make our anniversary dinner so special! And thanks to the Chef for creating the tasty dishes!!

Wonderful meal in dining room. Had tried bar menu before which is very good and reasonable price during happy hour. Our appetizer was light fried green tomatoes with crawfish. Excellent. Entrees of sea bass and grouper with Brussels sprouts. Very tasty.
Would recommend for any occasion.

The menu choices varied from most local restaurants from New Zealand venison to unique preparations of local seafood. The wine list is extensive as well as the cocktail and after dinner drinks. The presentation of the food was aesthetically pleasing with the service being attentive but not smothering. My only disappointment was the crepe dessert in which the crepes were not crepes but doughy thick wraps around exquisite tasting chocolate filling. I would definitely return to this bistro as everything else was top shelf.

Overall a a great experience. Good service and food albeit a little pricey. Not a lot on the menu if you don't like seafood but that is common in Destin and we were not surprised. Filets were very good as were the side dishes. Service was professional and friendly. They have also added sound insulation so the noise level was much better than on previous visits. Great wine list with a fantastic selection of mid to high end wines.
Great experience at Cuvée!
We had an excellent dining experience at Cuvée on Saturday night. The Kung Pao Oysters were outstanding, the bread service very good, fresh homemade Ceasar salad dressing and although I do not partake, excellent wine list.
My wife's Pork Chop was huge and delicious. I had a special bone-in filet, it was cooked perfectly, but the portion size was very disappointing especially at $58.
Service was very good. Our server Jacob had quick wit and good humor. Very friendly. Only mistake was forgetting my side dish of mushrooms.
Would definitely go back!

This place is a worthy go to restaurant whether you want to impress someone on a date or have a special meal with family and friends. Never fails to deliver a high quality experience with a fantastic staff, wine selection, and menu.

Our white haired SUPER Waiter at our Bar Table was exceptional.
He knew exactly what to do to make our dining there fantastic.
We enjoyed his recommendations and expert service. The Lovely Greeter was welcoming and accommodating.
The atmosphere was perfect upscale casual. Just BEAUTIFUL!
Needless to say, Food was Phenomenal, and if Chef comes to Tampa, we would frequent Cuvee Tampa!!

This is a nice restaurant rated as one of the best in Destin. But, I would beg to differ. The service and drinks were outstanding! The food on the other hand was fresh, but very bland without a lot of taste. With everything else going well for the restaurant, I really wanted to food to be just a good, but it wasn't.
Nice but needs improvements
I ordered the veal chop special. Its appearance was as if the chop was boiled, didn't have much of a grilled appearance. Further, it was difficult to navigate with a knife as this particular cut wasn't of good quality. I didn't get much meat off of it and it looked like a wet tired mop after I was done. My wife's meal was fine with the exception of the green beans which looked as if they were from a can and boiled to death. Further, the quantity was pathetic for the $6 they charged. I expected fresh sautéed beans for that price.
On a better note, the french onion soup was fantastic.
Our first night in Destin, Miramar Beach ...
Our first night in Destin, Miramar Beach. First time at Cuvée. Wonderful experience. Food and service was excellent. We will definitely be coming back on our next visit to Destin. Our waitress was very attentive and very helpful with our choices.
