We ordered a steak tartare, It was a little bit spicy. Also we ordered a chocolate mousse and the chocolate outside was a bit thick so it was hard to break and eat. The resto of the food we ordered was very good

We have been going to Buccan for a couple of years now. The small plates are amazing! We especially enjoy going there with our family and friends as we are able to order more dishes on the menu. The wait staff is very attentive, and we love to sit at Table 1 or Table 2 so that we may watch the chefs. It's like watching a dance as they work. The management is always there and want to make sure our experience is the best it can be. We highly recommend Buccan if you are celebrating a special occasion or just for a romantic dinner for two.

I took my brother to dinner at Buccan for his birthday and it was absolutemy amazing. The staff could not have been more congenial from the minute we walked in the hostess was terrific all the way to the bar and wait staff. It was one of the best meals I have ever had in a restaurant. I appreciated the entire staff going above and beyond to make this a special occasion. Thanks to you all! Mary

Three of us dined here earlier in the week and enjoyed a variety of options. The food was superb but expensive. The pork tacos, tuna crisps, sweet potato samosas, agnolotti were all memorable. It was a little loud but we could still converse. Great place for foodies and those that like to share plates.

As always a great experience. Food and service excellent. Did not particularly like the sweetcorn butternut squash pasta that was recommended, but that is my taste, no fault with the actual restaurant.

Excellent overall

We have lived in PB since 1973 and since this fabulous place opened it has been our favorite BUT not easy to make a reservation during the "Season" as everyone expressed on FB.... However; the wait is worth it once you get in, believe me.... Service is great and the food is the "best in town"..

First time visiting and it was outstanding. The food was fresh and delicious. The presentation was also so pretty. The ambiance has a very romantic feel with candles and dim lighting. The tables can be a little close together for a bistro feel but it's not bothersome. Our server, Jonny was excellent. He really made the experience for us. He suggested perfect dishes and was very attentive. He also has a really great mustache! We definitely intend on visiting again so we can try more of the menu.

All good except check in experience. Hostess insisted that we they didn’t have a reservation for us after me telling her three times we do.Finally I had to pull up my Open Table confirmation; then she looked deeper and hound it. She didn’t apologize; she was convinced we didn’t have a reservation and just huffed when she was proved wrong. All in all a good spot; hostess just needs basic hospitality training.

Never disappoints. Food and service always great. Some new menu items and they were excellent. Squid ink pasta with sausage and Conch was really different and excellent! Main courses of Grouper and Bass were also very good. Wines by the glass had many choices and reasonable prices. Will definitely be back.
