Had the 24oz porterhouse and it was tender as could be and cooked to perfection. Service was impeccable and everything was great. Our bill was just over $200 for two with a modest bottle of wine but the cost was well worth it.

We went again on Wednesday. My wife had the special chicken milanaise and I had the grouper. The meal was perfect. The five dollar wine was a very good value. The Tides is by far the best restaurant in Vero

I am particular about fish therefore no allergy problems but this restaurant is owned by the chef and the majority of items are not seafood so logically yes they can accommodate. But as above call.
