We went to eat here because it looked nice and had good reviews it turned out to be mediocre ! Their website says there are vegetarian options but there isn't any only spring rolls !!!! I think you have to be local or drive a Bentley to get any good service here. We will not be going back

When we arrived to hostess was on the phone taking care of another customer making a reservation. When she was done, she apologized for the wait, asked our name and and welcomed us to Curvee Bistro. The food was cooked to perfection. All the wait staff assisted in serving. The entire experience was exceptional.

We decided to try the happy hour as it had been some time since our last visit. You get excellent food and beverage choices for a reasonable price. Highly recommend it.

At first I was a little concerned about the prices, which seemed high to me, but admittedly no moreso than equivalent fare in Destin. That all went away once the food started coming, every course was better than the previous, but top marks go to the Chef's signature "sushi grade" yellowfin tuna seared rare and served over sauteed spinach; it...

Nothing...nothing is wrong with this jewel! They have a great "2-for" in early PM and late evening...worth eating in the bar area for. Not geared for kids. Bit pricey in the restaurant...BUT you do get very scrumptious foods. Restaurant a little more dressy; bar area more relaxed. Wonderful food...excellent drinks...nothing, I repeat, nothing can be said negative about it!

We had a reservation for 6:45, but showed up around 6:15 in order to get drinks and appetizers during happy hour. This bar food, however, was so undeniably good that we cancelled our reservation and ate the bar specials for dinner. The kids got barbecue pizzas and I got grouper sliders and french onion soup. My spouse got the signature... More

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....
