Really enjoyed our visit. Foods was great and our server was super. Only drawback, was a little bit too dark, felt gloomy in the early hours. Like the vibe, just needs to be a tad brighter.

A wonderful dining experience! We were a group of 5 girlfriends and had the best time sampling all of the small plates that were coming out of the kitchen. The tomato tart was glorious. Other winners of the night were the Sweet Corn Agnolotti and the Nantucket Bay Scallops. Absolutely superb. We can't wait to go back.

This is my second visit to Buccan and the food hands down does not disappoint. I'm a New Yorker who moved down here last year so trust me I'm a hard sell because the food in Florida in general is just ok. We had the Tuna Crisps and Steak Tartare for our appetizers which were excellent. For our mains we did pasta as thats what we were craving, we did the famous corn agnolotti which did NOT disappoint and the hand rolled maccheroni alla vodka with veal meatballs which was great too. We finished with the s'more dessert which knocked it out of the park! Delicious! Definitely a great spot, trendy, and good people watching. NOT quiet so do not come here if thats what you are looking for. Also a thank you to our waiter Israel, you were fab!

Noise reverberated off all of the hard surfaces and made it hard to hear each other talk and we were a twosome. Food was excellent and the servers too. Basic wine by the glass offerings were not the greatest and the wine was way overpriced. Might go back for food, but not wine or alcohol.

On first impression, I noticed that it was very busy for a Thursday night. The restaurant initially appeared to be observing all CDC guidelines regarding COVID-19. Throughout our meal; however, we noticed people leaving their tables without their masks. I never saw any staff approach the guests. Additionally, a table of about 12 people were placed within arms length of my table towards the end of my meal. I felt so uncomfortable I had to put my mask on and got the rest of my food to go. While the food was good, as it usually is, the experience was a bit disappointing. Also, it took a long time go get our food out, which normally is not the case. Overall, if you are Covid conscious, during this period of time, you should probably stay away or try to eat outside if possible (no guaranteed outdoor seating). If not, you should definitely try this place.

Buccan
Responded on February 6, 2021

At Buccan we take COVID very seriously and are always attempting to adapt to changes. We apologize if the situation made you feel uncomfortable, and we hope that you understand. We are glad you enjoyed your meal and next time you visit we will be sure to be mindful of spacing. Thank you for the feedback and we hope to see you soon!

Everything was excellent...the food , the service and the overall experience. However the noise level is loud as there is nothing to absorb the noise from an open kitchen. There are tables outside which should alleviate that problem if you choose to eat out.
