This was our first time dining at Buccan, and it was awesome. We started with hamachi, then burrata with peaches - delicious! Entree was swordfish, broccolini as well as crazy good parmesan fries. The burger was so delicious too. Will definitely be back very soon!

Went in hearing good things, but somewhat not blown away by reading the menu online. Ended up having a wonderful time. Peter V and his assistant server were excellent. We ordered a bottle and then went tapas style, firing off orders of 2-3 plates at a time. The food was excellent, inventive, and served in such a manner that nothing was rushed, ever got backed up, or waited upon. Near flawless sequence of service. We had a special time and wouldn’t hesitate to go back when entertaining friends.

Food is always great, ambience always great, Norman was very knowledgeable! We felt that Norman just spent far too much time conversing with us. Being in the industry, we may have come off as talkable! Unfortunately it put a big damper on our night. We weren’t able to enjoy each other very much. It was an unfortunate circumstance as we generally very much enjoy Buccan.

The food and cocktails were good. But the noise level was horrendous..additionally, the seating was way too close. ( at one point, I wanted to ask my date a question, and the noise level was so bad that I decided to text her)
I would not recommend this restaurant if you want to talk at a normal noise level

Based on reviews on Open Table, we thought this would be the ideal restaurant for our wedding anniversary. NOT! Noise level was terribly loud - must have been a meeting of men who did not know how to speak in a conversational way. Yelling, would be more descriptive. Not conducive to what we thought would be a romantic dining experience.

The best part was Francisco, the waiter. He was terrific and did his best to satisfy us. Focusing on the food, we found the overpriced Empanada to be very dry. The port taco was very good, however. Found the Watermelon Tini to be just so so. Certainly not one that's memorable. The "Simple" NY Strip, was large enough to be shared by both of us, and was excellent, although we had to send it back to be cooked to the temperature requested. The green beans that accompanied the steak were over cooked (the first time). The beans with the redone stead were perfect...nice and crisp.

This is not a restaurant we would come back to.

Had a very weird experience here. The service was friendly and wonderful, the watermelon martini was awesome and the chicken was fantastic. Sadly I had to send my filet back twice so I can’t recommend that dish but it’s okay, the manager was very accommodating and remedied the issue to my satisfaction.

For the last several visits, request for specific table has been ignored. Sound level is always an issue (can barely hear the person next to you). Staff much better organized in years past.
