Great restaurant

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... read more

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.

We really wanted to have at least one night of great seafood during our trip. We tried a very popular restaurant on the beach (after waiting 45 minutes to sit on the porch) and the food was so tasteless we didn't finish it. The next night, we tried again and made reservations at Cuvée. We were not disappointed. My husband... More

Want a lovely experience with cozy ambience and great food, choose Cuvee. As locals, my husband and I usually reserve Cuvee for special occasions since it is a bit pricey. But you get what you pay for. Chef Creehan never fails to deliver. The wait staff is great, pampering even. The food...oh, my...deeeeeelish! Fancy enough to dress up, casual enough... More

We sat at the bar and enjoyed a few cocktails and several apps. Everything was wonderful. We had the pork belly, grouper sandwich, fried green tomatoes, and an off the menu buffalo shrimp. They were all delicious but our favorites were the pork belly and the shrimp.

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….
