Loved all the food (steak Diane, pork tacos, short rib empanada, tuna tartare, agnolotti, snapper) and delicious watermelon drink. Great vibe in the restaurant and BEST server of our trip. Francisco was awesome!

Great new menu with lots of goodies. We love the hamachi, and they had outstanding pole beans as a side dish. YUM! Always great food at Buccan.

The food is fabulous and plentiful (even the small plates) and the service is impeccable. We ordered five dishes between the two of us and we did not have room for dessert. This was our second time at Buccan and between those two times we have tried 10 different dishes. Nothing disappoints! Don’t ask me what they all are, but as a pescatarian, there were so many options! We hope to go back soon because there were other menu items that we wanted to try , but were to stuffed to even contemplate ordering. We highly recommend Buccan!

Rarely do I get to enjoy quality food and service from restaurants in South Florida, Buccan is one of the exceptions. 3 weeks to get a reservation on a Sunday at 6:45 P.M. but I can understand why; the place was packed and the food was excellent.

empanadas were in a class by themselves. Cookies with meat. Incredible. Excellent swordfish. Highlight was service by waiter Norman who patiently explained the complex cooking and made great suggestions.

We are frequent Palm Beach diners. Buccan has been added to our restaurant rotation. The cuisine is eclectic, and absolutely delicious. We were pleasantly surprised.... We made advance reservations, and while dining, we have already selected our next meal. That's an extraordinary compliment to the chef, when you're planning your next meal, before you've finished the current one. We look forward to our next dining adventure...

This place is one of the best restaurants in Florida. Everything on the menu is terrific. We started with pretzel bread that our table of 4 shared, as we mulled over the menu and enjoyed cocktails. We then ordered several assorted small plates, each one tastier than the other. And to finish up, two of us ordered the duck and the steak larger plates, which we all tasted. So much wonderful food left no room for desert.

This was our second time at the restaurant. The service was a bit slower and one of our pasta dishes came out slightly to the cool side. The wait staff addressed the problem right away and the manager apologised. We will go back another time, hoping it was an off night, because our first experience eating at Buccan was terrific.

I brought 2 new diners. We loved everything. The burrata was delicious, as well as the baby kale salad. We tried the new rich pasta dish with ham, cream sauce. We all liked that. The chicken sliders were new for us and 3 out of 4 liked them. They were great it was just our choice of not liking BBQ sauce. Even the coffee and cappuccino was perfect. Mattie was our very capable server.

Would definitely go backI did happy hour menu. Shrimp scampi, $8 a piece. Very good. Duck confit one of the best I’ve had. Wine $9 excellent. Bartender had no personality only with locals. When I started speaking with locals he got friendlier.

Buccan had some of the most creative, and delicious food that we have ever eaten. We were seated promptly, and had a delightful server named Julia. She suggested the small plates, and we're so happy that we took her suggestions. We had a PARTY IN OUR MOUTHS.....it was truly an amazing experience. We are going back, reservations made.....

We were celebrating a birthday! Excellent service and attention to our daughter’s dietary restrictions. Our appetizers were short rib empanadas, Duck confit and , my favorite, sweet potato samosas. All were delicious and different. Entrees were sword fish, anglotti with sweet corn, and a snapper preparation with rock shrimp. A perfect place to celebrate.
