Consistent and interesting food. Eclectic menu that changes periodically and great wine list.
It is always a menu with imagination. Very good service but restaurant, like most others, is very
loud. This is a comment I hear often. Shouting at your guests is never cool! Very good valet
service. Please! Noise level is way too loud and I do not prefer to be an "early bird" in order to
have a great dinner and avoid the loudness. It is not "energetic"!

Amazing meal! This will be a staple on our visits. We had the Tuna Crisps, warm Brussels Sprouts “Caesar,” sweet Corn Agnolotti, Broiled oysters, and Short Rib Empanadas. Banana Benignets for dessert were to die for. Go!

I have been to Buccan before and loved it. My son appreciates great food. He was visiting from NY so my husband and I took him there. We ordered 6 appetizers to share. One was better than the other and we were quite full. But I always leave room for dessert. Their cappuccino was amazing and the strawberry shortcake was the best I’ve ever had. What a treat for all.

Literally they brought all of our food within five minutes of each – giving us zero time to appreciate any of the food… This was my second time at the restaurant and I felt as though the quality of the food was not the same… I was really really really disappointed

Buccan is one of my favorite restaurants. I live in Boston and make sure to visit every time I am in Florida, sometimes making reservations more than a month in advance. Their Sweet Corn Agnolotti is so good that the last time I was there, I ordered a second entree to bring back to Boston for lunch the next day. The waitstaff is great and makes the overall experience consistently enjoyable.

My third time to eat at this restaurant. We had the short rib empanadas, pork taquito, brussel sprouts, japanese eggplant w/ lamb, corn agnolotti and squid ink orecchiette. Plus key lime bar for dessert. I would rate the eggplant/lamb and both pasta dishes outstanding. The sprouts and port were very good while the empanadas were okay. The kitchen served the dishes in perfect order. All three visits to this restaurant have been 4+ experiences and I hope to have the opportunity to return again.

The kitchen produces an excellent assortment of small plates, each a creative interpretation of its main ingredients. I suggest focusing on the small plates and ignoring the small set of 'main courses', they're not as good.

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.
