I'm a local of the Destin area and this is our favorite place for happy hour! The service and food are always above expectations. We always ask for Reed at the bar. He is attentive and personable and we look forward to our nights here!

We enjoyed 2 flatbread pizzas (1/2 price for the 5-9 pm happy hour) and delicious. We also had a yummy Lemon drop martini and Cosmopolitans. Melody, was a terrific waitress, friendly and attentive! We will be back for dinner…the bone in filet sounds delish!

This chef-owned bistro is impressive. It is a beautiful space, with a very happening bar scene. We visited on a Saturday evening, fairly early, about 6:30. The bar was full. Since we had just arrived in Sandestin and had no reservation for dinner, we were seated in a side room. We started with the fried green tomatoes -- like none... More

Very impressed with the Bone in Filet, huge portion, cooked perfectly and Prime grade. Judging from the rest of the menu, the Chef clearly knows his food. If there were more places of this quality in Destin, I might visit more often...

Where else can you get Escargot (flown in weekly from France) for an inexpensive Happy Hour snack. Salads, Burgers, Grouper Sandwiches, Flat Bread Pizzas all at an excellent price. Martinis come in Silver Glasses, excellent Bar and Wait Staff and the event runs from 5 - 9 pm. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area. Annnddd you... More

My small family of three had our Christmas dinner at Cuvee Bistro. Undoubtedly, one of the best meals I have ever had! I liked the smaller portions. The server was friendly and knowledgeable.

Thoroughly enjoyed a great holiday week, pre-New Years Eve dinner for six here last week. From the excellent service (ask for Mark, who found the desired bottle of wine although the wine list suggested it was out of stock) to the helpful menu explanations, to the just great atmosphere, Cuvee topped any other dining we did all week. That inlcudes... More

I recently visited the Cuvee Bistro and the service was attentive and pleasant, food was very very good just not big enough portions and not enough of it when served. The fresh bread for starters was warm and very much a harvest bread. I had the Caesar salad which the croutons are fried eggplant, which are to die for. I... More
