“A real treasure. ”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Great meal! Great staff! Great atmosphere!!! Very knowledgable, and just fun people. They help you understand and enjoy wine, without an ounce of pretentiousness or loss of hospitality. Cannot wait to go again. It will be the first place we go in Destin from now on.

“Can't judge a book by it's cover!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Thank you Trip Advisor for recommending Vin'tij Wine Boutique! We were unsure of the restaurant from the outside because it is in a shopping center with Burger King, Subway, and McCallister's... But once we stepped inside, we knew we were okay. The food was AMAZING! My husband had the pork tenderloin and I had the pecan crusted chicken and OMG. We didn't want it to end! To accompany the food, we each had a different 'flight' of wine - which was 4 taster sized glasses. It was awesome to get to try so many new wines. Then... The people at the table next to us convinced us to get the deep dish pecan pie with homemade cinnamon ice cream!?!?! There are no words to describe it. Mmmmm! (And if you ask for the recipe, they give it to you!) This place was so good that we would drive back to Destin (5 hr drive) just to eat here! YOU MUST GO!

I've eaten here at least three times for luck and have really enjoyed every meal and the selection of wines by the glass!

“Decent Atmosphere....Bland Food”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We were excited based on the reviews and when we walked in we thought we had chosen a great location. There are wine bottles everywhere and it has an extremely eclectic atmosphere. The service was good, not great. We really wanted to love the food but we didn't. My wife had the Tuna and I had the Mango Salmon. They weren't terrible but there was nothing special about them. It is a pretty expensive restaurant and for the price I am expecting something special. I might return just for some drinks but not the food.

“What a find”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We stumbled upon Vintij driving home from a seafood restaurant as my wife looked for an ice cream place on her iPhone. When we drove up in front, I said, this can't be right. It is a bistro specializing in wines. So she popped in where one of the waiters assured her they have homemade ice cream and other great desserts. So four of us went in and were wowed by the deep dish pecan pie with cinnamon ice cream. The next night we came back for desserts and tried more and made a dinner reservation for the following night.
Talk about don't judge a book by it's cover! This place is between a Subway and a McAlisters in a little strip center. Looks very unassuming. The inside is cozy and colorful. Feel like you've stepped into a different world from a strip center.
The dinner was the best we had on our three-day long weekend. Limited number of dishes, but all were winners. Dont hesitate, go for lunch (less expensive) or dinner (more expensive). And don
t miss the pecan pie.
