I've needed a spot where I can go and be ok my myself during some time of transition in my life. Cuvée has been just the spot. The bar staff is incredible. I'm never really alone at Cuvée. And since I don't get off work until 7:00 pm, I'm thrilled to let you know that happy hour lasts until 9:00... More

This is a Destin classic and delicious dining spot. Has a real local, non-tourist, feel to it. Each item I have tried has been fantastic, but every time I am there, the tomato soup is a must have! Happy Hour is truly the best in Destin, by far, and not just because of the drinks. It's all about the vibe.... More

Try the brussel sprouts if they have them. I've never dreamed my least favorite childhood food could ever be prepared in a way I'd come back asking for more. Their steaks? Cooked to perfection. Wine selection? Superb. They have live music as well that echos throughout the restaurant on small speakers which just adds to an already exceptional experience. I've... More

This place has a great reputation, and some of the dishes are quite good. Very good wine list. But overall it is too expensive for what you get.

I've always wanted to try this restaurant and finally visited with friends this weekend. We called for a reservation and the woman told us to just come in, so we ended up seated on the patio. I wouldn't suggest sitting on the patio. There is zero ambiance with the parking lot and passing traffic. We had scallops and fried green... More

We sat in the bar area for happy hour. Our server acted as if she was stressed or too busy to focus on our table. Everything we ordered came out all at the same time, when I was hoping for salads first then the rest of the meal. We were sharing a table with other people so there wasn't that... More

Consistency is always so important when dining out and CuVee Bistro satisfies again! A great happy hour, and fabulous Grouper Sliders, Caesar Salad with Eggplant Croutons and $5.00 top shelf Martini's! The service was great too! The ambiance is beautiful. Can't wait to go in for dinner!

Went for dinner and had king crab and sea scallop appetizers, the king crab was served chilled and already cut open for us, it was amazing! Their Caesar salad dressing was hands down the best ever and the bone-in filet mignon was incredible and melted in my mouth. All of that on top of impeccable service. Our server Randy was... More

We went for date night and really wanted to try a variety of items. They brought the wine menu out first and really made us feel like we were there to relax and enjoy our evening vs. being rushed to order. Our server was very knowledgeable and suggested several house specials that we loved! We had a creamy seafood bisque... More
