    I usually don’t put reviews out there, but I had a lot of referrals to go to Buccan and ended up being disappointed. I do want to say that the service was excellent, my cocktail was well made and the steak tartar was the best I have ever had. However, I sampled one of their beef empanadas and it wasn’t great. Then, their house made squid ink orecchiette was over-cooked, the conch was very rubbery and the sausage was also a little dry. I found the dessert menu to be lacking. All in all, for all the hype, it was not what I expected.

    Good evening. Food was excellent, although we liked our small plates better than our entree. Wine prices were okay. We think it's one of the tastier options in the PB/WPB market. Service was solid, but undistinguished. It was off season and on the later side, so the volume of the place was manageable.

    The food was fantastic. The ambience was cool. Service was top notch. It did get kinda loud in there but, for everything else being superb, you can live with the volume. Highly recommend going the “small plate” route and tasting several dishes.

    We arrived, had a drink and then asked to be seated. The signature Buccan cocktail was wonderful and different! The hostess was going to seat us in the “time out” in the back depths of the restaurant but I told her I would not sit there. We were moved to a VERY small table. The hostess seemed she was NOT happy that I did not want to be put back in the corner in the dark. Well I was not happy either. I would request a better table next time. Wish there were a few more wines by the glass on the menu. Food was excellent and well prepared!
