Tardaron más de una hora en darnos la mesa, aún con reservación. La comida es deliciosa

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.

The evening was spectacular. Two suggestions if we may.

Tables for two, would be nice if they were further apart so one can have private conversation.

We felt a little rushed with our meal. Perhaps when making reservations you can let guests know time frame for meal.

very disappointed by the food. it was average at best. Very busy and happening place but given the chef's reputation and my expectations coming from the NYC area it was a let down.

Mike our waiter was fantastic. Loved the eclectic menu and energy there. Clearly one of THE places to go.

Great drink menu and nice selection of bubbly and wine. I’d definitely go back.

Food and ambience are excellent. As expected with a restaurant as popular as Buccan, the noise level can get loud in certain parts of the restaurant. I highly recommend eating at the bar with Drew and Mark.

Great food and service as usual. Sat at the bar this time for dinner and service was just as great as if sitting in dining room. Tried new items on menu this time. Lobster spring rolls and buttermilk chicken sliders are great additions.

WE WERE VERY DISAPPOINTED TO SEE THAT MANAGEMENT DOES NOT VALUE ITS REGULAR CUSTOMERS. OUR RESERVATION THAT WAS MADE WEEKS PRIOR WAS FOR 5:45. NOT THE BEST TIME FOR US. HOWEVER, WE UNDERSTOOD ITS BUSY SEASON. WE WERE SEATED AT ONE OF YOUR SMALL CRAMPED TABLES EVEN THOUGH YOU HAD ROOM AT LARGER TABLES FOR THE ENTIRE TIME WE WERE THERE , WHICH WAS ONLY ONE HOUR. THE WORST INSULT WAS THAT MANAGEMENT WOULD NOT ALLOW US TO ORDER JUST A FEW PEICES OF SUSHI FROM IMOTO NEXT DOOR. IT SEEMED AS THOUGH YOU WERE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR WALK INS .

ANDY DUGARD KNEW HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR REGULARS. YOU SHOULD ALL TAKE A LESSON FROM HIM.

Although the food was delicious and the service was superb, we did leave a bit disappointed...
DISCLAIMER: Don’t come here if you’re celebrating anything. All they do is acknowledge the fact but do nothing about it. It was my birthday and they greeted me with a “Happy Birthday” then our server also made a “Happy Birthday” comment but nothing complimentary or symbolic of the celebration.

It is for young people, as elderly folks desperately trying to fit in, but cannot stomach all the unusual food combinations and flavors. Sad scenery. Lots of single old girls looking for sugar daddy. Overall - it is one of the best inventive food places on the island, but just for those who are young at heart( and stomach).

Our first visit to Buccan and most certainly not our last. We loved the Christmas Eve ambiance; the breadth of the menu and the quality of the food.

We all ate burgers. As the waiter said when we asked if they were good ‘not what we are well know for’. Should have listened to him. Sub standard and sloppy burger. Fries were almost cremated - just not good. The starter had too many flavours and also nothing special. It’s always a good idea for a buzzy evening but the food is always hit and miss.

Terrible service. Every order was wrong, cold food, inattentive server. Loud. We have been to Buccan many times and this was horrible. I’ll never go back. I even reviewed it when it first opened. It has gone downhill...big time!!

Always have a great meal here. Juan, our waiter for the first time, was outstanding. Helpful and so very nice.
Only negative is the noise. Food is great and staff is so nice.

Food was truly just awesome.
And explosion of different flavors my taste buds were pleasantly on fire , we had ordered a nice bottle of wine to complement all the array of different selections
everything we had to taste was excellent .
The noise level in this place however it could be bothered some it's better to make reservations either very early or pass 830 at night
And even at that time is very loud,but then again The place is packed because it truly is
One of the best restaurants in town.
