We stumbled in with our family if six - two grandparents , two parents, and two children. By sitting in the bar during Happy Hour and enjoying food and drinks there, we saved a lot on our bill, because it is pricey. They accommodated the children with chicken and fries, while serving the adults. Husband had sliders off the special... More

I enjoyed a great dinner at Cuvee on July 31, 2014. Our service was exceptional and the food was very good. I would certainly visit Cuvee again.

Being a foodie, I have a chip on my shoulders about so many places in Destin that serve you "thawed out seafood which comes: fried, grilled, or blackened...with your choice of fries and hush puppies". Cuvee bistro is not that type of place. If you want to enjoy fresh, delicious food which is tastefully prepared...give it a try. Tanglewood Farms... More

After enjoying a fantastic experience during the Cuvee Bistro Happy Hour in the bar, we decided to make a dinner reservation for another night. I have to say that the bar menu options are much better than the dinner options. The fish seemed to be under cooked and it was served on top of rice that was drenched in sauce.... More

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.
