Been there a dozen times. Food has always been amazing! Seemed like something changed in quality control, maybe a new chef? The tuna app and the tartar were still very good. Dinners were just ok! Made the mistake of going on a Monday because we were going outta town next day and wine was half price which is a good idea in summer but the clientele was different than any other time we’ve been there. We were sandwiched in between 2 extremely loud tables and although we requested a window seat, we were once again put next to the serving station. Although I requested otherwise and there were three open tables by window, they wouldn’t sit us there because we weren’t a 4 top. Maybe I understand that but by the time we left, 2 4 tops were still empty and one of the tables we wanted had a 2 top? When I booked last time it was my anniversary and was assured we would get a window seat but was disappointed because we were sat once again next to serving station. The food used to bring us back but quite frankly, not worth the drive from Delray with the clear ambivalence towards special requests for special occasions! I was hoping the anniversary snafu was a fluke, clearly I was wrong! Oh well, all good things...

We have a condo in Palm Beach and visit often throughout the year. We go to Buccaneers at least 5-8 times a year and it never disappoints. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Fantastic dining experience.

The food is always on point here. Chefs have an amazing array of flavors they combine in their food. It was a bit hot inside on this past occasion but overall the waiters & staff are truly top notch and great.

Buccan never fails! Whether we go there with family or friends, we always have a wonderful meal. The service is impeccable and the food is always tasty and plentiful. We love going with a group so we may order more small plates to share. We love sitting at table #1 so we may watch the chefs prepare the scrumptious dishes. They are not afraid to season the food and that is one thing that sets Buccan above most

Good food and service - liquor and wine prices are way too high with little choice. Lot of good places to eat with reasonable wine list and prices. One vodka nearly pays for the cost of a half gallon of same - way too high.

Excellent, innovative food with a good variety of small plates made for sharing, as well as delicious main meals. The Squid Ink Orchiette was particularly good this evening, as was the carrot and lobster tortellini. Little wonder why this place is always crowded. If you are looking for a romantic dining spot, this is NOT it, as the noise level here is through the roof, but the food is to die for and the service is excellent. This is one of our favorite spots in the Palm Beach area.
