By far one of the best places I’ve dined from around the world, and I mean around the world. There was this place once in Heidelberg Germany that had the best, sorry I digress….

We have been to this restaurant many times and have always been satisfied with the quality of food and service. The menu offers a variety of items to choose from and always have specials for the evening. It is pricey but worth the price.

Our waiter, Randy, was most excellent in terms politeness, funny, and knowledge of the menu items! Excellent service! Randy recommended the Grouper Vince for me and it had to be the best grouper I've had in my 3+ years of living here in the Northwest Florida panhandle.

Cuvee has a wonderfully fresh and varied menu. Everything is done the right way. We elected to split an app, salad, and entree and Cuvee obliged. Cuvee does has a reasonable split fee but it resulted in full vegetables on both entree plates. Server was well versed in each dish and made great recommendations. Probably the best fine dining experience... More

Cuvee Bistro is interesting in that it has two sides. One can be seen in the bar at happy hour and the other can be seen in the main dining room. Happy hour here is known for a selection of various martinis and small plates that are half price and good. I have been here several times and been impressed... More

This used to be my favorite happy hour; but on this trip I was a little disappointed. With tip our bill was $40 for one drink each and we shared 3 aps. One was a basket of fries (not even truffle fries!) which were fine for fries. The second was a spring roll that was a little on the greasy... More

We were extremely pleased with not only the food, but the excellent hostesses and servers. It's lovely inside as well. We started... More
