Excellent selections of local fresh fish, I had Pompano. Be sure to try the pear salad. Conch fritters superb, with excellent dipping sauce. The wine list is very good and reasonably priced. They bring out a desert tray with 12-14 selections making it hard to decide, but we chose chocolate flourless cake with ice cream. In December outside dining was... More

Our party of 9 enjoyed an excellent experience at The Tides. The cuisine, from appetizers, salads and entrees (steaks to seafood) was prepared to perfection. Decadent desserts! Outstanding service. Highly recommend if you are looking for a bit of higher end dining. White table linens. Dressy casual attire acceptable. Highly recommend.

Reservations are a must. Small place 6 seats at bar and we were lucky to get 2 outside Had Mahi Mahi and Duck both were very good. Nice wine list. Professional staff. It would be our regular place if we lived there

This is a great local little restaurant. We had great food and the lamb was particularly good. It went well with a great bottle of wine.. My wife had fish and she enjoyed it also. The evening ended with us sharing a dessert. All in all a great experience.

A few reviews mention Joanie and rightly so! Restaurants aren't ust about the food, it's about the people, too, Joanie is a treasure! We 'oohed' and 'aahed' at every bite from beginning to end, just when we thought the meal couldn't get any better, it did! We would go back in a heartbeat, indeed we tried but sadly the restaurant...

We came here for a conference dinner. Our server Rene was a very nice guy; very knowledgeable and Super friendly. But I'm afraid the food let's the place down. If I ran this place, I'd get down to the Citrus Grill and see what they're doing right. It's the same kind of food, but the Citrus has a better location.... More

We visited The Tides based on its ranking in Vero Beach restaurants and were not disappointed. We called for a reservation and were seated in the garden area of the bar on a hi-top table and the ambience was perfect. The Martini's at the bar were worth every penny for a great pour and service and dinner were both excellent.... More

We go to the Tides every time we're in Vero. Ask to sit outside if the weather is good. We often go for the specials but the duck is always delicious. Nice cocktail menu and the service is excellent. Make a reservation especially "on season". It's always crowded!

I used to be a fan of the Tides, I ate three times in the past two months with their "early bird" menu and the food, service and value was excellent. On Sunday night I had guests who wanted to have a special meal and we recommended the Tides. I was embarrassed! The bisque was all cream, the veal was... More

Our third trip-all for dinner-excellent. I had the grouper and my wife had the special 3tail (grouper). Mine was perfectly prepared as were the vegetables. #1 in Vero and we would agree.
