Food was good, service was good, but premium prices for a panhandle beach town. Not sure that this would be our first choice for fine dining.

I've been a local here for 16 years. I have ate at every restaurant around. I was very disappointed with Cuvée Bistro. When it was Cuvée Beach it was good. I would never eat at this place again. Grossly overpriced, extremely loud, no view, tiny portions, tables are packed in like sardines so much that you can't walk around a... More

Great meal out with friends! Probably my new favorite in Destin. It isn't hard to find excellent food here, but this place has it all. Food was excellent- we all ordered different entries and all were equally great (halibut dish, duck over cheese grits, filet, and grouper). Martinis, wine selection, live music- all was great! Price was a bit high... More

Their food is sub-par. I voiced my thoughts about the food. They didn't like it. Only good if you're willing to accept junk. MUCH better places than this wanna-be.

This restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Destin. It is quite expensive for a meal that is memorable. The best time to go and try some of the food at low prices is at the 5-9pm happy hour. They have a lot of appetizers half off, but get there early because the place gets packed with locals fast.

Had a perfect dining experience with friends. Very helpful waiters, amazing music, and a warm and inviting ambiance. Simply perfect! Already been back and will go back again and again. If your not hungry, just go to sit at the bar for an equally great night!

My husband and I went for Valentine's Dinner. He was able to make reservations a few months in advance. We arrived on time and only had to wait about 10 mins for our seats. The server was very friendly and knew all about the dishes, wines, etc. It was a bit noisy and slightly cramped but we had a wonderful... More

Enjoyed another great meal at Cuvée Bistro, Grouper Vince is fantastic, the fried green tomato with crawfish sauce also very good as all the food seems to be very consistent, super wine selections and bar scene.
