Winemaker Mia Klein suggested we make a few stops if we were going to be in Vero Beach. Our first stop was The Tides fine dining restaurant. This restaurant was in a word, excellent. Chef –Owner Leanne Kelleher really has a hit with The Tides. Her vision of fine dinning with fresh local ingredients prepared through classical methods as well as her own special touch makes this a destination restaurant in Vero Beach. The mahi mahi and her macadamia nut encrusted snapper were prepared to perfection.
Chef Leanne came to our table introduced herself and her “franchise waiter” Kenny. The service provided by Kenny was one of the best we have seen in a while. The Wine List has earned The Tides the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2005 Manager Matthew Moore has done a great job as well in the operation of the restaurant. The Tides has become very popular. Reservations are a must. To find out more about The Tides visit them at www. Tidesofvero.com.
