The Best!

I tell all my clients and visitors this is the best place on the island! Outside doesn't look like much, but looks are deceiving! We even go here for our anniversary too! Food is always great and worth it even at island prices.

Incredible food, intimate atmosphere, attentive staff. Lobster bisque so light and delicate. Roasted pear salad with a difference flavor in every bite. And the Crispy Duck, a house specialty was eaten to the bone. Finished with key lime tart that was a perfect sweet/sour finish. This restaurant is #1 with a bullet. I shall return for every special life event... More

My wife and I ate here for our anniversary. All of the dishes were wonderful and well presented. The wine selection was outstanding and the entire meal was just great. It was pricey but for a special dinner you can't go wrong here.

We usually eat at the Tides one night every time in Vero. The food never disappoints, and the service is spot on. Keep up the good work.

This is a top choice and ranks with the best of dinner spots among our many vacation sites. Kenny was a wonderful server, and just one of about 8 who took care of just 25 tables or so. Service was unobtrusive, professional, uniformly dressed and omnipresent. The food was outstanding. If you are looking for fine dining, look no further.... More

Let me just say that this is the best restaurant in Vero Beach! The service was impeccable, the food was truly amazing. The calamari melted in your mouth. Crab cakes were all crab, barely any filling. Our server, Rainy, was spot on, friendly, a great personality and knew her job well. There is nothing bad to say about the Tides.... More

Outstanding. We had heard about this fine dining restaurant and that it is pricey. We also heard there was a special casual seating daily from 4:30-5:30pm. The entries are not more than $18 with salad. Best food ever!!!! Highly recommend it!! Dress up a little after 5:30, like business casual is good. Service outstanding. Highly recommend it!!

This charming restaurant across the street for the beach on Cardinal Drive has an old Florida charm with its sprawling layout that speaks of a history of a fabulous eatery that had to keep expanding to accommodate it's growing popularity. Each dining room has a different ambiance including the front porch with it's trattoria feel. Each dish on the menu... More

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the front desk staff at the Kimpton Vero Beach hotel. Everything on the menu was delicious and our waiter was excellent. I will definitely go back the next time I'm in Vero Beach
