The best in breed by far of the Palm Beach restaurant market. Creative dishes that present different tastes and experiences from dish to dish. We often go and get 5-6 small plates and a bottle of wine plus dessert. Prices may seem steep but are actually a great value for the money vis a vis other high-end restaurants on the Island. Just great!

The only thing negative about Buccan is the noise level, it can be out of control. The food and service are wonderful so you tolerate it

We dined on a Jewish holiday and before start of the Palm Beach “season” so it was WAY quieter and more relaxed than on a normal night when this joint is jumping. Of course we always find the food and service excellent even when it’s crowded - it’s the crowd that can be off- putting at Buccan with its everyone-on-the-make bar scene and overly entitled patrons. I guess that comes with the territory! Highly recommend the duck, the broccoli and hummus plate, and the the burrata!

We were visiting Palm Beach and Buccan was highly recommended on Yelp. We waited to long to book a reservation and the only time we could get in was 5:45 on Open Table. We booked that and then the concierge said she would see if they would allow us an extra 15 minutes to arrive which they did. Our service and food was excellent and we were never rushed! I highly recommend for any and all occasions. Nice ambience— not too stuffy. Their shareable small plates are a nice size for sharing. Large plates certainly can be shared too.

Food was OUTSTANDING. Excellent cocktails too- watermelon martini! I ordered a few different small plates and all were great- lobster spring rolls, crab-stuffed squash blossoms- amazing. But the one dish I ordered as an afterthought just to have some veggies- the grilled broccolini with hummus and sumac spiced onions was INCREDIBLE. never thought you'd hear that about a side of broccoli, right? it's pretty loud in there, and it was super busy since it was sat night- so the only room for improvement is the length of time to get a drink refill and that sort of thing. but it doesn't take away from the experience at all. food is so so good.

We had an anniversary dinner at Buccan. We really enjoyed it. Great food, great service, a shout out to Andy, took good care of us. Never been before will certainly go back, everything was so tasty. We started with a Snapper Ceviche that was excellent, as was everything we had that followed. I doubt you could go wrong here.

Excellent food, service and attention to details. We weren't rushed and were able to carry on a nice conversation. Even the cappuccino was superb. Quite pricey, but we knew what to expect. Other than the annoying girls next to us snapping selfies with the flash on, the evening was lovely. Would definitely return.

Every visit to Buccan is perfect. Excellent service from the moment you drive up to the moment you walk out the door. Food is always flawless. The atmosphere is relaxing but somehow special. I can’t think of a better spot to meet friends or have a nice dinner for 2.

The food is second to none. The service folks make you feel at home. Prices are reasonable. Ambience is great. What more can we ask for. It’s our favorite restaurant by far. Mark and Denise Sokolich

PS: it was my wife’s birthday and without even asking the staff they gave us a great table right in front of the chefs. It was a special night at a special place.

Lovely restaurant. Loved the setting and friendly service. Dishes were all amazing. I had the Tiradito of fresh fish for appetizer and it was full of amazing flavors. The steak empanada is a must. Fresh and delicious and wonderfully presented. For my mail entre I had Snapper with sautéed spinach and garlic and asparagus. All very flavorful and delicious. My house stand had the beef dish of lomo and he raved about it.
Overall a wonderful experience. I highly recommend it.

We had a group of three and sampled a number of small plates. Each was delicious! Our server gave us good recommendations for both the dining approach and popular menu items. We are from out of town but would make this a "go to" restaurant if we lived in the area.
