A word from Buccan
Buccan (pronounced boo-cahn) is a restaurant, bar and lounge in the heart of Palm Beach. The concept, conceived by acclaimed Miami Chef Clay Conley, is primarily a high-end bistro, featuring progressive American cuisine, in a casually sophisticated setting. The predominant characteristic of buccan's menu is a changing array of small plates - highlighting the use of superior ingredients and preparation - offering an adventurous and memorable dining experience. Guests are welcome for a quick bite at the bar, a specialty cocktail in the lounge, or for a long, leisurely evening.

Diner Reviews
  • "Great vibe with a very creative menu. Friendly service and good food. Cannot wait to go back!"
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "Over the top fantastic! Want to try everything! Loved the oysters, squash blossoms and seafood risotto."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Just terrible service. After looking at the menu for a long time, we ordered three things and were nonchalantly told by the server "yeah, we're out of that" - on all three. How about giving us the heads up that you were out of three popular menu items at the outset? Anyway, we ordered more food, none of which was really worth clamoring over and not once did our server bother to check on us or ask if we wanted another glass of wine. The spot is chic and fun and their sushi bar next door is excellent - I would suggest dining there instead."

  • "This is a must go to restaurant in Palm Beach... The food is excellent.... Small plates to share are creative and delicious. Service is always good, and it's a fun energetic place to dine. If you can get a reservation, don't miss it!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Buccan continues with excellent food right here on PBI. Although it can be loud at times the energy level does not over-power te wonderful food prepared and presented accordingly. From small plates to main courses, one never leaves Buccan hungry. The small plates are an excellent way to try many items on the menu."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "We loved everything we ordered. We were four people and enjoyed the selection very much as we shared each dish. We especially enjoyed the excellent tuna tartare, a must try! The atmosphere is fun and welcoming and unthreatening. Overall, it was a positive and tasty experience and would go back again. Our favourite restaurant in Palm Beach!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "I had a unsatisfactory experience at Buccan on my last visit. We were seated next to a large table of impolite and yelling customers. Very low class for a supposedly upscale restaurant. Despite complaints by several customers, there was no management of this unpleasant situation. The food was good but not great so I cannot recommend this restaurant. The restaurant provided us with two free glasses of wine to make up for this. However, we will not be returning to Buccan."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "excellent food, wine and service, with a creative chef whose talent for blending flavors never disappoints. Portions are huge so look to sharing as a way to experience more treats. Sit at the kitchen bar and be treated to chef's surprises."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Erica &Nick Faboulos bartenders! Ryan was a great server. The food was Absolutely delicious. Great hot spot!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "The quality and creativity of the dishes has remained since dining here last year. If I lived here all the time I would be there more often."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "If you like to be around a bunch of people, with a kitchen that's open relatively late for Palm Beach, then Friday nights at Buccan are for you. I went on purpose because there was a dj and plenty of people at the bar. If you want a quieter situation, go any other night of the week except Friday. Make your reservation well in advance, because this is a fantastic restaurant and everyone wants to go there for a very good reason!!! I have eaten here many times since it first opened and have never been disappointed!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We were pleased from start to finssh on the quality and creativity of the chef, the hgh level of service and the well chosen wine list. The lobster risotto and tuna/avocado starters are superb, as are the day boat scallops. Save a bit of room for creative desserts."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Great all -around restaurant in Palm Beach The menu choices are extensive and all we had were excellent. Wine list is impressive by the glass and bottle but most diners were having cocktails. Service also excellent. A Real Nice addition to the Palm Beach Scene - Go if you have a chance!"

  • "Great food. Great ambience, but they do not honor reservations. You can wait anywhere from 1/2-1 hr with a reservation."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I love everything about this place from the absolutely delicious food to the professionalism of the staff to the design of the restaurant. It is a breath of fresh air in a town with many stuffy restaurants."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Great place to meet after work. Great small dish concept, allows you experience a variety different types of foods. Loved the oysters and risotto was 5 star."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Although the food was good, the service was horrible and really effected the enjoyment of the dishes. I understand the small plate tapas theme, but the dishes came out in no good order, a hot dish first, then crevice, which really would gave been a great starter. The small plates weren't changed consistently between courses, once having a soggy plate left from an octopus course to share with a crisp clean ceviche. We were not offered more water or a beverage and were left with swearing empty glasses for the last part of our meal! The energy and noise level of the restaurant although exciting at first became annoying while waiting up to 20 minutes between courses! You get the idea! Very disappointed !!!"
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "This is a Great place with really good food,the service was great and friendly. Would totally recommended this place if you around the Palm beach or West Palm beach area."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "We came for an early dinner, because we knew we would have to wait for a couple weeks to get a reservation during prime time. We were not disappointed! Our server started us out with a warm welcome and explained the menu well. He suggested that we order 2-3 items per person, which we did and shared each of them. All items were delicious. I especially liked the short rib empanadas and my husband really adored the squid ink orecchiette. Can't wait to go back with friends and try other menu items."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "The hamburger & fries were delicious. Our pompano fish was good but a little small. I enjoyed the tuna tartar We loved the half off on our wine!"
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "Buccan surpassed our expectations.Fantastic waiter, food and wine. Our table was clean and waiting for us at 8:00pm, we were seated upon entering the restaurant and it was a crowded Sunday evening."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "This was my second time to Buccan (first time 2 yrs ago) and this has to be the best meal I've ever had. Wish they had a location in NYC!"
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I made reservations two weeks in advance and confirmed that day. However the wait time for my table when I showed up five minutes early was over 45 minutes with limited seating in bar area (due to it being a hot spot). 15 minutes is bearable, but 45 minute wait is not!! Especially given that there was no seating, my guests and I had to stand for the 40 minutes of the 45 minutes wait. Hostesses do a lousy job assisting clientele."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "We for drinks and dinner and decided to eat at the bar. A woman bartender took our orders,she seemed peeved that we asked about the dishes and ignored our requests for the complimentary popcorn offered at the bar,finally, we asked other staff; the busboy, to refill the little bowls of popcorn offered at the bar. Buccan is great, that bartender not so much. We could of had much more to dine and drink, but her attitude drove us off early. It seemed she did not want to give us anything that did not contribute to our check. We think the emphasis of an upscale restaurant is to make the customer happy not withhold the complimentary treats. We realize Palm Beach is both upscale and elite, but that does not excuse rudeness or eye rolling."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Met some friends for dinner on Valentine's Day. As usual we had a fantastic dinner! And, it was great that Buccan had its regular menu and not a "special" Valentine menu because Buccan is ALWAYS SPECIAL - the menu is eclectic and chock full of delicious options that are beautifully presented and exquisitely flavorful. The wine list is great, too, and the sommeilier couldn't be more helpful and accommodating, same with the wait staff. A must!!!"

  • "My husband usually takes me for special occasions (birthday, anniversay, valentines day) We always have a great time. They have an extensive drink menu and I always get the Chez Suzane (SO YUMMY). The food is always delisous and fresh. I love that it is always perfectly seasoned and you don't have to add salt or pepper to anything-it's always perfect. The staff is also upbeat and cheerful. Our waiter this last time was great, super friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and its specials. Definitly a great place."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Great concept with small plates, but not too small, fresh food with lots of flavor and a nice variety. It is what eating right should feel like."
