Cuvée offered a 5-9pm happy hour with half off many drinks and appetizers. Escargot, flatbread pizzas, sliders and much more. Plus, you can't beat a $5 martini!

Amazing place. Service was impeccable and the food was done exceedingly well. Simple dishes with authentic flavors that were delightful and fresh. My husband had the Grouper Vince and I had the Chilean Sea Bass. Both were superb! If you are in the area and looking for high end dinner experience, I can't imagine a place better than this one....

My wife and I had dinner here this week to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. The restaurant is nicely decorated and formal for the beach. We thought the signed empty wine bottles were a nice touch. Our waiter, Randy, was super helpful and brought is 2 flutes of Champagne to start our evening. We also ordered several glasses of wine...

We saw this restaurant featured on a tv program entitled "top 5" restaurants in Destin. We had not heard of it before. This is only our second trip to Destin. They were extremely welcoming and accommodating since we did not have a reservation. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. My husband had an amazing steak and I had the... More

So first time visit for me and my friends, but Cuvee is now officially a staple for us. Incredible food and happy hour, nothing around here comes close. Pretty good live music as well, worth sticking around for late.

By far our favorite upscale restaurant in Destin. Service is impeccable & the ambience is very nice. The Grouper Vince is perfectly prepared with a light pecan crust & a sweet sauce. The King Crab legs were large, sweet & juicy - wonderful! Nice wine list, great live music at the bar. Romantic.

As a business traveler who had never before been to this area in Florida, I went to Cuvee Bistro after my first two choices were not open on Mondays. I'm glad they weren't as the service here was excellent and the food was very good bar fare. Drink and food prices were very reasonable, considering the high quality. Recommend without... More

We were not too hungry, so our friends suggested Happy Hour and appetizers at the bar. We shared a table with a young engaged couple from Texas who were delightful. Our waiter, Jacob, was incredible. He kept us in stitches as he quickly and efficiently served our drinks and food. We called the manager over to brag on Jacob &... More
