My wife and I attended the Ovide for a Sunday dinner for the weekend. We have lived in Santa Rosa Beach for 8 years and decided to attend the Ovide. The service was okay, but the food was terrible. The pork chops were uncooked, and...my wife's fish was served with the skin on plate. The sides that come with the meal were changed without our knowledge or permission. The waiter was not helpful in this regard at all. The restaurant manager sat at the bar on his computer during our meal. There were 3 other people in the restaurant at this time. The appetizer which was cornbread were cold.More

Do not waste you money eating at this restaurant. I am only giving my honest opinion as to the front, center and back end of this restaurant 1st we waited for five minutes at the hostess desk for some to seat us. 2nd We were...giving one wrong menu which was the lunch menu. Waiter apologized and gave us the correct menu as we sat at our table, I have to say that the food was very bad. We started with the steak tartare and the deviled eggs. We were not given shared plates. And we waited and no one came to our table to see if we needed anything. hence, my husband had to get up and get plates himself. Our entrées gnocchi with tomato and crab, suffice it to say the gnocchi sauce came out of a jar like Chef Boyardee. It did have two wedges of tomatoes and there was no bread to go along with the meal. Who serves pasta with no bread? The gnocchi was supposed to have crab meat, but there was no crab meat and if there was I missed it. This is an additional cost to add protein. Oh, and we were not even offered new cutlery when they took our appetizer cutlery away. Bougie it is but great culinary it is notMore

We loved our evening dining at Ovide. The atmosphere is casual yet trendy & sophisticated. Our server was friendly and attentive. The wine list is robust and a versatile cocktail menu. The menu isn’t large but still offers a wide variety of interesting items. All...our food was fantastic and prepared perfectly and presentation was nice. Overall we had an excellent dining experience.More

My husband and I went to Ovide to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary while we were visiting the Sandestin area. Dinner, for both of was absolutely delicious & perfectly cooked. Our waiter, German, was very attentive, had great customer service and a delightful personality. He...went out of his way to see to it that we had a truly memorable dinner. He definitely succeeded. Highly recommend the pan roasted grouper pigeon peas & rice, lime beurre blanc, baby bok choy with tropical vinaigrette and the grilled berkshire pork chop roasted pepper agrodolce, herb salad. They were both superb!! Truth!More

My Fiancé and I tried something new every morning and All of it was amazing!!!! Let’s start off with how delicious the coffee is!!! Cappuccino and vanilla latte, Starbucks who! Lol. Espresso Martinis on point!! Huevos Rancheros best I’ve ever had! Steak & Eggs Excellent!!! Avocado toast every avocado lovers dream!!! Just perfect! Okay but the French toast just WOW!!!! Best we’ve ever had! Pancakes fluffy yummy perfection! Cheese burger add a fried egg, with truffle fries holy moly life changing. Being a foodie I highly recommend this wonderful place!!!

Wanting to enjoy a nicer meal at Sandestin, we made dinner reservations here for our last night in the area. The restaurant itself is inside Hotel Effie; if you're not staying at this hotel, you'll either have to valet your vehicle or park. Parking is...not readily available here and you may have to park in the dirt lots and walk a bit. The restaurant itself was very clean and beautifully decorated! The food and drink menu were quite robust, and all the food we ordered was excellent! I enjoyed the steak option, while the rest of the family ate a variety of seafood. Everything was cooked perfectly. We also split a few desserts...the portions were huge! My only complaint: our waiter wasn't very good. He didn't seem to know much about the menu, and he forgot standard service items including what the dinner specials were and what the available ice cream flavors were. Overall, great meal!More

First impressions - restaurant was nice, had a mix of elegant and moder decorations. Went there for breakfast, and had eggs Benedict and also the steak and eggs. Both were very good, definitely the steak takes the win if you like steak in the morning....Perfectly seasoned, and requested temperature. Our waiter David was great, he was very nice and offered many recommendations, no issues with our requests and even gave us some local tips to enjoy the surrounding areas. I would try Ovide definitely if you are in town visiting.More

We went with our family and had personalized service from Courtney who catered to our children’s requests and was incredibly versed with all aspects of the menu. We had oysters, beef tartare and ribs as starters - everything was superb. My husband had the ribeye...and I had the grouper; we both enjoyed our meals and I cleaned my entire plate which is very rare!!! The sides of potato macaire and pigeon pea rice were surprisingly delicious accompaniments to our main entrees. Fantastic restaurant in San Destin if you are looking for great service and food that offers something beyond the typical menu.More
