We had an excellent lunch. I had the fish tacos and my grilled versus fried request was honored with no hesitation. My wife had the spinach salad with grilled fish and she said it was one of the best salads ever. The 1/2 price bottles of wine at lunch is a nice draw.

We've been to Vue ten or so times, and have never been disappointed. One of the things that they seem to do exceptionally well is salad dressing-go figure. We always get some type of local seafood, and it's always good. One our favorites!

We were eager to enjoy a meal at Vue on our first evening in Santa Rosa Beach. Had heard great things about the restaurant, although these must be from "in season" as the food and the service, overall, was very poor. A couple of us ordered the bone-in strip (per the constant recommendations by the waitress), plus a lobster tail.... More

The buffalo mozzarella appetizer and the scallops were excellent and the menu special of tuna was very good. My husband enjoyed the lamb chops. Not only was the meal good, but the sunset is impeccable.

We will probably never return. We called several times to secure a reservation. The phones were out. We arrived at 4:50 pm. We were told there were only outdoor tables available so we had to sit outside. Our waiter, Michael was very good. I always order the grouper. The piece of fish gets smaller and dryer each time it seems.... More

We have never heard of this restaurant before despite having visited Destin for more than 5 years. Recommended by friends from Panama City. Good service, quality food but not very extensive menu. Overall great experience.

I can't say enough great things about this place. Let's start with the view - it really is a beautiful ocean front view with a gorgeous sunset - I don't think you'll get a better ocean front view. The Drinks - we started with a couple of moscow mules at the bar before dinner - they were phenomenal and the... More

The food was great - a French style Gulf restaurant. Service was professional, though I felt my family of four was overlooked in favor of the extended family next to us. But it was expensive. I usually don't get too uptight about the expense if the food and service are good, but I felt this was a little over-the-top. However,... More

My husband and I visited the VUE to see the actual view this time-not like in winter when it's already dark at dinner. It was spectacular. We also tried the crab cakes appetizer for the first time. They were phenomenal. I went to take our 2 year old to the restroom and he ate the rest of mine while I... More

This is our third time to The Vue and it never disappoints. We like to go early so we can enjoy the sunset. Our food was wonderful as always. My husband enjoyed the red snapper dish and I the Grouper. Not a single morsel left on our plates. Hubby even joked and was wondering why I was so quiet, I... More
