Description: Cuvee Bistro in Destin, Florida offers classic French, Asian and Italian influenced delicacies along with award-winning signature dishes by Proprietor and Executive Chef Tim Creehan, including Amy Grant's Seared Tuna Rare and Vince Gill's Pecan Crusted Grouper. A must for foodies and tourists alike, no visit to Destin is complete without sampling the culinary excellence at Cuvee.

We have been to this restaurant probably 100 times over the last 10 years. The food has always been very good and excellent service. Chef Crehan is one of the best chefs in this area. Somewhat expensive but well worth the price.

Have been here several times. Felt the quality of the meal was just a little lower than the last visit. Prices are a little too high for the quality.

My family has been vacationing in Destin for over 30 years and went for the Thankgiving buffet meal this year for the first time. Even at $38 per person, it was worth every penny as the menu was eclectic, superbly prepared, and well laid out/maintained. I have left similar establishments feeling unfulfilled as though I did not get my money's... More

Two of us ate dinner here. We had excellent service and banter with our waiter. The drinks were good but the food was excellent. I will definitely recommend this to friends and family and be back to myself. Great location, plenty of parking

The meal we had here was fantastic. The staff in all areas were attentive and friendly. I had the great pleasure of meeting chef White at his mothers home the night before. We did not do the Happy Hour, but maybe next visit. This is the type of establishment you don't tire of.

I live on the gulf coast and this was my first time. My husband and I took his sister out for her birthday. It was "fancyesque". I felt like I would be comfortable in shorts or dressed up. The service was incredible and our server Colin was very knowledgable and helpful. The food was tasty although it wasn't what I... More

All I can say is the wait was worth it. We arrived around 7pm and the place was oacked. After almost 25mns waiting for a spot at the bar to open. Jim the bartender motioned for us that some customers were leaving. So glad he did. Everything was excellent. We had a couple martinis a piece (my fav was the... More

Cuvee Bistro has become a regular stop on our visits to Destin for the past 8+ years. We used to come for their early bird "2 for 1" entree's...that got us hooked, we loved the quality and creativity of the food (and the great deal!). However, in recent years we haven't seen the "2 for 1" specials any more but... More

We had been here before, but we gave my daughter her choice of restaurants for her birthday dinner and after reviewing menus, she chose this one. First, we had an apparently ambitious waitress, Paige, who thought she could handle our party of 10 (aged 16-50+, who all consider themselves well informed diners). Paige did a wonderful job of handling our... More

After getting a spot reserved for the two of us, our Thanksgiving meal was fabulous. I appreciated the staff working hard to make you feel like family. This was the best cornbread dressing I have ever had. All the food was made with love and tasted like a family meal & we didn't have to prep or clean.This was our... More
