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.

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.

This restaurant was absolutely phenomenal. I’m so glad I tried it. I will be driving from Boca Raton to come here more often. Everything we was incredible. And a great value. Love the small plates and sharing concept. Bravo! Restaurants have seem to go down in quality during and after Covid so congratulations on keeping your standards high.

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.

Overall we loved our visit. We went to Imoto first, which we have visited previously and loved. Imoto is my #1 favorite sushi spot in South Florida so far. After that we headed over the Buccan. We had tartare, corn pasta (can't remember the proper name), and brisket. We loved the first two dishes, like amazing. The brisket was good but overly sauced for our taste. I had an amazing glass of Bordeaux and my husband had a delicious blood orange beer. We ended the meal with a yummy s'mores dessert (that ended with a candle for our anniversary, although if it was my restaurant I would offer a special cookie or something a little more wow factor. A small price to pay for people to remember you restaurant for their special occasions !) We definitely recommend the restaurant. The worst part was leaving and the fact that we got hit with a $60 parking ticket which we have to deal with now. We will be returning.

We went for our Wedding Dinner. The ambiance was nice, valet was a little confusing, but the staff was so friendly! Food was delicious. The sweet corn agnolotti was stupid good (as our waitress said). We ordered it twice on this visit!

With all the restaurants hurting from covid I understand trying to save money on food cost. Drinks should make up for that, pour a little more generously for a $15.00 drink. We enjoyed the ambience and the server was well versed. Tipped 20%

First about the service, our server was a woman from Romania and she was beyond amazing. She went Above and beyond to make our experience magical.

The food, fantastic! Creative, delicious and interesting.

We arrived early around 6:20 and the atmosphere was laid back and easy. By the time we left, around 8:30, it was very energetic. Certainly a place to see and be scene.
