Cuvee Destin Ratings and Reviews

My husband and I ate at Cuvee Destin while vacationing. I work at a chef-driven restaurant in my hometown, so I was very interested in Tim Creehan's restaurant--especially after reviewing the menu! We were greeted and promptly seated when we entered the restaurant. Our server, Mark, was excellent! Very well-informed on the wine list, menu, and specials. The food was delicious; I just wish I had saved room for dessert.

My wife were in Destin for a gettaway weekend and tried Cuvee. We loved it!!! Ambiance was romantic and service was very professional. We both chose the Grouper Vince, named for Vince Gill, and it was delicious! I only wish we had room to try one of their deserts. We will definitely return.

Cuvee was recommended by a resident of Destin, we were not disappointed! The service was good, the food fantastic and the wine list was extensive. The only negative was the firework sparkler on my husbands birthday dessert actually burned a hole in his nice dress shirt, oh well, causality of a fine dining experience.

They had a pet friendly outdoor seating area that we will take advantage of in the future. The sea bass was great and so was the service. The kids enjoyed the pasta with marinara and we all shared the desert sampler. Everything was great. We will be back

Best happy hour in the Destin area from 5:00-9:00. We ate at the bar, and our bartender (Nathan) was outstanding. The full menu is offered at the bar, but some of the appetizers are discounted if you sit in the bar. Impressive wine list with a range of prices. Our meals were terrific, and this is going to be my go-to spot in Destin from now on. The only drawback is the traffic on 98. Ugh.

All employees were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was excellent as was our server, Jacob. Jacob was very professional and personable but not intrusive. Prices were high for the amount of food served. However, I do plan to return for the experience.

I must admit a little disappointment with this dining experience. We have lived here since '03 and finally made it to Cuvee! I am glad someone else picked up the tab because I would have had issues with thirty three dollar entrée dishes that were not as good and twice as expensive as can be had in many other restaurants ! Our dining partners seemed ok with the scallops but the world famous, everybody loves it seared tuna......we each had and I am sorry but there is not a good thing to be said. That is unusual as often as we see positive comments on this place! Maybe it was a bad night but I will be hard pressed to do that again. And 16 dollar tequila shots that are 9 bucks all over town.....Just feel the value and quality are not worth the prices charged here. Just one guys opinion...

Everything was absolutely PERFECT with the exception of the tuna. A little mushy and too much black pepper in the crusting, kind of overtook the dish. Scallops were to die for! Banana cream pie is worth the indulgence!

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 ...
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!!
