Pretty loud inside, the food is amazing. Definitely not a first date kind of place unless you are seating outside.

LOVED everything about it, the only thing I would change is the noise level.... Quite noisy ... I wish they would do something to reduce the noise level so that people don't have to yell to talk to each other:-)

We sat at the chef’s table which was by the open kitchen. It was fun seeing all the different menu options coming out of the kitchen. We had the short rib empanadas which were amazing. Hummus and veggies was also good. We had two pastas that were tasty. The corn agnolotti and butternut squash pasta. Also had chicken meatballs and that was wonderful. Fabulous waiter. Overall stellar experience.

We went to Buccan during our "minimoon" on Palm Beach. My friends had gotten me a gift card as a wedding present and somewhere between it getting shipped out and my address, it got stolen and used. Buccan handled the whole situation very professionally. When we arrived, we were lead right to our table at the back of the restaurant where the chefs were cooking everyone's meals. Great table! The manager stopped by and congratulated us. Our two servers and everyone else provided incredible service. The food was amazing as always. Definitely go if you're in Palm Beach, especially for a special occasion!!!

Our expectation was much higher, food tasted ok, if the portions are going to be small, they need to be euphoric. We really tried to find something that stood out. It just wasn't ther. The front door is very impersonal, not very welcoming. Our server on the other hand, very knowledgable, very professional and very attentive. I wish I could remember his name. He is from Morocco. Really wanted to go 5 stars all the way thru. Sorry.

Hi Paull, Our apologies if the front was not as welcoming as you had expected. Trust us when we say that we absolutely want you to feel welcome! We are delighted that you had a great experience with your server! We regret to hear that you thought the food was not up to par. Some of our dishes are presented in smaller portions than others, but all of them should be euphoric, which is an excellent word that we hope to have attached to your experience next time you visit!

Another good meal at buccan. The food was great and the service was attentive. As usual, high noise level, but we were seated away from others so it still felt like we could have a conversation and not scream at each other or worry that others were eavesdropping.

Fabulous time at Buccan! Everything we ate and drank were excellent l! The Sweet Corn Agnolotti was off the charts amazing.
I’m usually more of a protein guy, but this pasta was exceptional. A must try. (Hint: you could always order a small or large portion to share with the table.) Steak tartare was crazy good as was the tuna crisps. The potato gnocchi in its ratatouille was perfect.

Desserts were off the chart don’t miss it. S’mores cake was excellent, I would have liked more ice cream. Key Lime tart was awesome, and we got Chocolate chip cookies freshly made for the whole table with flaky sea salt, incredible.

Service was prompt and efficient. Ambiance was great with real fire lot candles everywhere, tables spaced out, service staff in masks and clean. We will return!

Always love the food and atmosphere if this restaurant. However, somewhat surprised they charged me $22 for a Manhattan (straight up) while most places charge $14. I'll still visit again but won't pay that high price for an average drink.
