Awesome Tuna!

A top rate restaurant. The menu was diverse. It's a little upscale, but it's by the beach so shorts are fine. I had their signature gumbo for a starter and the tuna for my main course. It was excellent. Honestly, probably top 5 tuna ever. The bar menu is very good and prices were reasonable... read more

We were a party of five and each had a different entrée. All were unremarkable in taste or quality. We were seated at the" VIP" table, which was located just inside the front door, across from the hostess desk, a few feet from the "sports" bar. Not what one would expect from a "Fine Dining" restaurant. We were told that... More

We sat at the Pizza Bar and was entertained by Maurizio while he made the most delicious brick oven pizza and ham and cheese rolls. He gave the kids dough to play with and was doing pizza throwing contests with the teens. We had the pasta cabanara and it was heavenly! After dinner we had the homemade chocolate coconut almond...

Cuvée Bistro Destin is probably still the Best restaurant in Destin for food quality, wine list and service. The oyster appetizer and the tomato & Shrimp bisque are the best, the Grouper Vince,Grouper special and Filet also very good as was the BLT salad, will be back soon for the half price bar menu of appetizer's!

I went to this place during a Destin vacation based on the reviews here and came away wondering how they got these reviews. Things were a mess right from the arrival. I get a call asking if I'm coming for my reservation one minute before the reservation time and literally as I'm opening the door - very strange. Then we... More

Never disappointed at Cuvée Destin. The bar is great and the dining is very nice. The service is the best around. They make a great martini with blue cheese stuffed olives. My wife ordered scallops and I ordered the bone-in filet. We shared and created a awesome surf and turf. I highly recommend our server Colin. He was fantastic.

I have never had a bad meal at Cuvée. It is a great, romantic restaurant or even a great place to go with a group. Great wine selection, amazing specials, food, desserts, everything at Cuvée is great.

Outback, Longhorns, and O'Charley's. What do these 3 mediocre chain restaurants have in common? They all serve a higher quality of food than Cuvee Destin. I do not write reviews often and I am most often very forgiving and easy to please. The experience my wife and I had at Cuvee Destin is unforgivable. We both ordered the prime bone... More

We go there for the Venison - it is absolutely divine -year round. If you eat in the bar area, they always have discounted specials and it is quite the scene. The main restaurant side is much less crowded. The server staff are great. This restaurant is CONSISTENTLY excellent. Their reward program / points is a bit of mystery at... More
