We went there on a Friday evening. Although it was pretty crowded we were able to get a table on the patio. It was nice but this was looking out on the highway. The service was good and the server was pleasant. We had young grandchildren with us (3 and 4) and there is not a children's menu but the bar menu has some offerings that worked. We let them share a flatbread pizza and it was enough. The entrees, without a salad, were in the $30 range. The wine offerings ran from mid-$30s to triple digit. The food was quite good.

Had reservations here on a Sunday night. Not too crowded when we ate, about 75% full. The service was great and the server was incredibly knowledgeable of the menu. Would return here again and again!

I enjoyed the ambience, busy but not boisterous. There were people there dressed up as well as in business casual. Very good meal and I absolutely loved the bison carpaccio. The meat was delicate and sauce with savory! Some reviewers griped about the portioned out bread. I liked it like that. I don't go to a nice restaurant to fill up on bread! That's so lame! I had a nice meal with good wine. I'd go back again and again!

We are locals and frequent the restaurant often. It is a nice mixture of tourists and locals. It is definitely among the best casual fine dining that exists on the Gulf Coast. Exceptional and extensive wine list. Food is superb. Regular menu never disappoints and there's always an exciting special feature (or two)... Always solid choices are the grouper, duck or venison steak entrees. If you're in Destin, Florida and are needing a special, memorable place to have a great dinner at then Cuvee is your place. Our favorite server is Paige, extremely attentive and professional. Cheers!
