Even though we have been wintering in Vero for years we never made it to The Tides. Well the wait is over and we are kicking ourselves for waiting so long! What a lovely meal. Ambiance is great. Staff is outstanding! We checked out the menu online prior to our visit but little did we know that Renee our outstanding... More

Just love the staff, food and ambiance. It is hugely popular during peak months so book well in advance. You won't be disappointed. I always get one of the many fresh fish options, but last time I had steak tartare appetizer! OMG! I'm still craving it. Such great variety.

We love The Tides. Food is always great. We are locals and this is def our favorite night out for dinner together. We like to sit outside when the weather is good. Desserts are always great and the pear salad and any main course. We typically go every year for our anniversary

My wife and I stayed in VB for a week exploring the town. Part of that discovery was experiencing the local restaurants. Of all we ate at, I would rank The Tides as #1. The staff is accommodating, knowledgeable and polite. I can't tell you how refreshing it is to hear young service personnel say "You're welcome" instead of the... More

From the moment you enter, Claudia is just a great and gracious hostess. She makes sure everything is done to perfection. The waitstaff is great especially Joany. And of course you cannot beat Leann the chef whose recipes are spectacular. There are no negative to this great dining establishment. I wish they can have 10 stars!!! Rick/Peg

This was my third time dining at "The Tides". I am a foodie and love trying new food and restaurants. This is my parents favorite restaurant, so we made reservations two weeks ago to eat here. The service is definitely above average and the food is very good, but I have yet to have anything on the menu that is... More

While everyone says The Tides is the Islands best restaurant, by comparison of say Naples, The Tides is just a nice restaurant, certainly above most of Vero but not we would expect from the best. Service was good, food was very good and prices were high as expected. Having experienced Naples restaurants we were disappointed, but would return with lesser... More

Our first dinner at the Tides was excellent. The staff are attentive but not overly so. All our dinners were nicely presented and delicious. A very pleasant dining experience. Reservations are a must.

Lovely dinner with the rain pouring down outside. Food, staff all first-class. The canopy and roll-downs kept us snug and dry.
