A quaint restaurant in a house on a street off the beaten path behind Ocean Drive. Great menu, a bit pricey but worth the visit.

Every single item that we tasted was fantastic. Plus, there were so many interesting and tempting options, that we felt we could return a second night and still would find a different and equally delicious variety of choices.

The bar tender was friendly and made a recommendation for a cocktail. The hostess was extremely helpful, needed to add people to our reservation, still seated on time. Our waiter recommended the best oyster app ever. The special was the hogfish, there were shrimp, scallops, lobster, clams, and mussels in a delicious sauce. The hogfish was cooked to perfection.

I always add The Tides to my list when visiting Vero Beach, Florida. The smallness makes it a very romantic spot for a great meal. The bartender is one of the best at making hand-crafted cocktails and he knows his wines. I always order one of the following two items: Macadamia Nut Crusted Yellowtail Snapper or the Peppercorn Filet. You... More

We were in Vero Beach for a sporting event with our son. Friends recommended The Tides and we could not have been more pleased. My macadamia nut crusted snapper was delicious. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the chicken saltimbocca. But the showstopper was our son's halibut special, which was very lightly breaded with bacon bits. Melt in your mouth good. And... More

Went to dinner last night at the Tides. 5 of us. Great table. Gina was our waitress and was fabulous. I don't know how they always remember the long list of specials, but they all do it and do it well. Sam was helping out as well and she took exceptional care of us. The specials they offer every night... More

Although we are "locals" we had never been here. We had guests that had searched for a really nice restaurant to treat us. We had an early reservation - 5 p.m. - because we know it's now the busy time. We chose to sit on the patio as it was a beautiful evening. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. One... More

All 5 stars, service, food and presentation. I am lactose intolerate, my dining experiences run hot and cold. I want to be wowed, I want to remember that dining... More

We've been to this restaurant several times when visiting Vero and never had anything less than an A+ experience. We'd recommend going with the fish specials, but there's something for everyone on this menu. Wine list is varied and reasonable, the salads are especially inventive. What makes this restaurant a standout is the knowledgeable and attentive service. While on the... More
