We are from the New Orleans area and we are FOODIES! We ate here one night while we were on vacation in Destin and the food was spectacular! The atmosphere was very inviting and the service was excellent. Another home run, Tim!

This was the 4th time we've eaten at Cuvee Bistro while vacationing near Destin. I'm hoping tonight's experience was a rare miss (i.e., the exception rather than the rule), because it wasn't as good as I remembered. Although most of the dishes we had among our part of 4 were excellent, my entree was a downer. I ordered the prime... More

Our favorite place in Destin bar none. The food is fantastic. The wine selection is great. Nice relaxed, yet elegant vibe. Excellent service. I highly recommend Cuvée Bistro to anyone near Destin.

My wife and I took the bridesmaids from her Sister's upcoming wedding to dinner there after they had a girls day. The spring rolls were good. The BLT salad was terrible. The Caesar salad was not much better. The pork tenderloin was not bad but I've had much better. Parking is scarce. There are a lot better options in Destin.... More

We were in Destin for a girls tennis trip. We headed to Cuvee for cocktails and a light dinner. It did not disappoint.

Go early and sit at the bar until 9 pm and get $5 martinis and half off appetizers. Spring rolls, garlic fries, grouper sliders-they are all good. The martinis are to die for....try the pear! The service is outstanding- the bartenders are fantastic. Will come back every time I am in Destin!!

Great food, service and atmosphere. Table has always been ready when we've arrived. We try to eat at Cuvee Bistro on all of our trips to Destin.

Great experience. The Asian spring roll appetizer had 6 pieces with a sweet/spicey sauce. The Romaine heart salad and BLT salad were great too. Shared the Chilean Sea Bass with the hubs and added the sautéed garlic. YUM! I don't really like fish but it was delicious!

First I must compliment the Chef who went above and beyond his responsibility by treating myself and my guest with complimentary lunch when he forgot to add message to answering machine that they had discontinued lunch service on Thursday. He was very sincere in his apology and invited 6 of us to complimentary lunch. Having eaten there many times prior... More

We visit Destin about once a year and decided to branch out a bit from our usual haunts. This bistro was wonderful. Excellent wine choices, we has the crabmeat eggplant appetizer. I had the spinach salad with Walnut bacon dressing and goat cheese. My entree was the roasted chicken. All were amazing. I highly recommend this place but bring you... More
