Food was great and our server Norman was terrific. He encouraged us to try small portions of a number of dishes we do not usually find in a restaurant and share. Wonderful idea as we all enjoyed foods we would not routinely order.

The best food in Palm Beach; we had 2 amazing pastas; the Squid ink pasta with conch and the veal cheek pasta with mushrooms.We preceded those delicious dishes with a fabulous tuna, fantastic pork tacos and tasty lobster spring rolls! We sat at the chefs table and were entertained by the incredible chefs.

Tim was excellent! Food sublime.
Corn agnolotti exquisite, as always. The appetizer selections came in a perfectly paced sequence delivered with a smile. The bus boy timed the removal of glasses/ plates impeccably TOO!
Thanks again to all the excellent staff, including the ladies at reception who welcomed us back and made sure we sat down without a wait. Bravo!

Unique, creative small plates. Lots of fun to treat it like a tapas menu and just try different things. Each was just right for two to share. Nothing we didn’t love. Happy, upbeat vibe in a light and airy room. Reasonable prices for the quality, ambiance and Palm Beach location. Would definitely go back.

First time for the four of us. My birthday which I thought they knew. If they did, nothing said or done. We all thought it was fantastic. The other couple already made another reservation. Only complaint is the noise level. V

Unbelievable! Every dish we had was absolutely amazing. Our server was fantastic. He has taken care of us at previous visits,greeted us with a warm welcome and helped us make our dinner and wine selections.

The noise level was so bad I could hardly hear the person I was dining with. The appitizers were good but the entree was mediocre however the presentation was beautiful. I will not go back.

Disappointing experience at one of our favorite places in Palm Beach.While the food continues to be creative and tasty (Japanese eggplant parmesan was to die for! Toffie blondie sliders a delightful take on an ice cream sandwich) the surrounding experience was less so starting with the ventilation system and moving to the main course preparation itself. The day we were here was particularly chilly for PB, but the a/c in Buccan seemed to be on full blast. Three times the chill was brought to the management's attention--once by the people at the table next to us, and twice by me, yet over the course of 2 hours dining the temperature stayed very chilly with a strong draft. Next, the lights kept dimming and brightening as if someone thought we needed to be sure to not be able to see! Finally, the service/main course prep. My partner ordered what was a very nice skirt steak (I know because I ate as she couldn't) done "medium plus" which we explained in some detail to our waiter. I ordered the duck also done medium to medium plus (aka medium well). My duck came out just fine, hers arrived just the cooked side of rare, oozing blood. While our waiter offered to send my partner's meal back to the kitchen, that defeats the whole purpose of a meal "together"-while her entree was in the kitchen being cooked properly, mine would be sitting on the table getting cold! Not a good solution. The best solution would be for waiters and cooks to get it right the first time! If this was a waiter problem more careful listening training would be in order. If a kitchen problem a simple instant read thermometer would ensure that meats were prepared correctly to order. We both wonder if Buccan is resting on its laurels a bit--by the time we left it was packed. Better experience at the sister restaurant Grato in West Palm.

Best restaurant in Palm Beach! We shared 5 dishes plus dessert... everything was delectable. The only thing I would change is the acoustics, but wouldn’t change a thing about the food.

Buccan is without a doubt the best restaurant in Palm Beach. Every detail is thought through and it’s truly a special experience to eat there. We live in New England and look forward to having our anniversary dinner here each year.
