Best Restaurant in Vero

My husband and I eat out often. We have decided that the Tides is the best restaurant in Vero Beach. The Ocean Grill has its history, but the Tides has the tastiest food. We love to eat outside at the bar. The owner and staff are always funny and friendly. As soon as you arrive, someone is at... read more

The service is most attentive and the food excellent. The tables are spaced well and the noise level is moderate.The menu is varied with both fish and meat entrees and many specials.

The service is not as good as 1-2 years ago. Although acceptable the attention to detail and timeliness of wait staff upon first arrival needs some polishing. The food is very good but nothing creative. The atmosphere is good in that it is not as noisy as other places.

The Tides is one of Vero's best restaurants, if not the best. Food is always prepared and served properly, delicious and interesting preparations. Reservations are managed well so waits, even in the busiest times, are minimal. This is simply an A+ restaurant that charges fair prices for top food and service. We prefer the outside seating as the inside is... More

We love it when we're dining at The Tides! Their servers are attentive, attractive and really on the ball. Kitchen is equally managed. The place is spotless.

Nice atmosphere offering both indoor and outdoor seating. Great wine selection. Food and service both outstanding. My "go to" restaurants when entertaining out of town guests, a special celebration or when we're just in the mood for a nice night out. Consistently very good.

The Tides continues to be a Vero Beqch fave with both locals and visitors, at least that is how it seems when you watch the owner walk around, table to table, greeting the newcomers and exchanging personal conversation with the repeat visitors. The menu has some consistent "great every time" classics but always works in some fresh options. Would love... More
