Still a Great Place to Eat

A trip to Destin means a meal at Cuvée. This go round I had the Spinach Salad and Tuna. We all split the dessert sampler. This place rocks. If you're heading to Destin, stop in. You won't be disappointed. It may be smart to make a reservation, especially on the weekend.

My wife and I went here for New Years Eve and were treated to an excellent meal with top notch service. We both had the smoked tomato and shrimp soup and the pecan crusted grouper with garlic mashed potato cake. I was stuffed after eating 2/3 of my meal but it was so good that I had to finish everything.... More

Cuvee Destin is an upper scale chef restaurant. The food creations are excellent. The wine list is extensive and includes some outstanding wines. Service is friendly and prompt. But even with all of these virtues it is a bit overpriced. It is a great place to take customers as a business expense.

Our dinner was wonderful as were the cocktails and wine served by a professional, knowledgeable, and courteous server. Noise level can get high so recommend early seating.

Tim Creehan & Pam Wellborn have put together a great team of waiters, chefs and bartenders who are there to please you. This is a high-end restaurant that caters to the client with great food and great wines or you can bring your own wine and pay the corkage fee.

Way overpriced, can't emphasize this enough, $15.00 for a appetizer which should have cost $5.00. Very small entrée portions. Expected more for the money. Service was good. Would not recommend for travelers visiting this area. Was not impressed at all. If I had to do over I would pick a different restaurant. Seems like more suited for local clients.

This is a great change of pace from all the seafood, with excellent food and service. A little pricey, unless you're wise enough to go at happy hour! Eat in the bar then, and you get the same food for a much better price, and lower priced drinks as well!

We went here for Thanksgiving dinner, which was served as a buffet. It was very busy and you needed reservations in advance. The food was absolutely fantastic and lots to choose from. It was easy to eat gluten free. We sat outside and the weather was wonderful. Service was good and friendly, but due to how busy they were, it... More

Went for Happy Hour. This restaurant is very "classy" but isn't "stuffy". Very educated staff, food is quite good, obviously Chef created fair. Wins "Best Happy Hour in Destin" every year. It isn't cheap but the busy bar (we ate at the bar) has a very wide range of guests that are sure to entertain.

We finally tried Cuvee Bistro because we didn't want to drive all the way to our other favorites in Destin. We were pretty disappointed. The atmosphere was decent, but not great--a comfortable dining room along the main drag with no water view. The entrees were all between $30 and $40, which we think is a tad higher than other other... More
