Food was outstanding. Such an interesting menu. Monday night is half-price wine night, and we took advantage! Norman is an outstanding server, and made perfect recommendations for our group of 6. We'll be back!

We love coming here for date nights and since we were staying at the Breakers for our sons first birthday we decided to bring him along to share in the magic that is Buccan! He loved it and although I wouldn’t typically recommend bringing a baby to a place like this we came right at opening and they made us feel so special!

The sungold tomato appetizer was strange and mushy. Hamachi was too thick and warm. The short rib empanadas are always a hit.

Stick with the pastas, love the agnolotti and also the squid ink one is incredible.

Yum!

This was our first visit and hopefully it won’t be our last. We really enjoyed all the suggestions of our server and between the 4 of us we tried 7 dishes (hamachi, pork tacos, short rib empanadas, octopus, street corn cauliflower, orecchiette pasta, and ricotta cavatelli pasta).

Great drinks, excellent attentive service, creative new American cuisine. Might be too loud for some, but we liked the ambience. Mostly well dressed clientele. A few guys wearing shorts, but I think this place warrants “big boy” pants.

We have been dining at Buccan for several years now and our dinner this week was just as amazing as ever. The food, service, and atmosphere are unmatched. Martinis perfectly chilled and wine suggestions were spot on. The corn agnolotti is a must have, but the new menu items were just as wonderful. Highly recommend!

Our best dishes were the Confit Duck and the Sweet Corn Agnelotti. The duck’s skin was crisp but the inside was still tender and moist. The Agnelotti was very rich and creamy.

The worst dish we had was the Steak Tartare. It was overloaded with raw garlic.

We went on a Thursday night in May. It was almost painfully loud. Conversation was only possible if you leaned across the table and spoke directly into someone’s ear.

Excellent food as usual. Service started out slow but ended up being amazing, Israel was great. Based on his descriptions, tried some dishes we might not normally have tried and everything was amazing. Delicious! Energetic atmosphere but at times just downright loud.

Our server Fransico definitely made our evening out an experience!!!! He recommended all our dishes and they were all excellent!!! Monday night is also 50% off all bottles of wine. This was our 6 th time dining at Buccan and definitely will be returning. Two of our favorite restaurants on the island of Palm Beach are Buccan and Imomto next door to each other. Grace and Francisco are the best servers you can have. Go to either one.
