I've been here before and other than the noise level once the restaurant fills up, everything is 5 stars.

In- spot in Palm Beach...Tapas type food, varied selections, everything ordered was very tasty. Good and varied wine list. Service friendly and attentive. Noise level high, but part of the ambiance.

It was our first time at Buccan. Our server Michael could not have been better. He mentioned the Tapas we should not miss, suggested wines that went with them, and arranged their delivery so that the most-filling were served last. Very creative, delicious dishes on the menu. We'll definitely go back.

Delicious food, perfectly prepared. Nice selection, there is something for everyone. I was with a group of 6. We had all of the small plate pastas, they were all great. The hamachi was also very good. I did not eat any of the octopus but my group thought is was over dressed. A few of us had the scallops - delicious! The chicken was also very good. For dessert we had the key lime pie, it was yummy & had a merengue topping.

My wife and I had a great meal here while on vacation. The atmosphere was great on a Thursday night during a slow week in Palm Beach, and the food was amazing. Great experience all-around, and look forward to visiting again in the future.

Our waiter was awesome. The food was inventive but still very delicious. However, we were seated at a two top right next to another two top not so romantic and also very loud. Overall we loved our meal and would go back. We live on Marco Island and this is one of the best restaurants in South Florida. Short rib empanadas are a must!

After buying into the hype, my fiance and I decided to make the 1.5 drive to try out the restaurant. Overall, I would say it has both good ad bad points but seems to be a little overrated. We ordered desert, 1 large plate, 3 small plates and 2 glasses of wine. With tip our bill came to 180.00.
Our octopus, while being the most tender I'd ever had, was overly salty, so much so that I couldn't finish it. It also was laced with a very unbalanced amount of cumin. The orecchiette was good, but again, unbalanced and towards the end, too spicy. The tartar was amazing. The large plate scallops, again way too salty. The service was very good and the restaurant is beautiful but extremely loud. Overall, with what we paid vs what we received, this restaurant was a bust. I'm glad we tried it once and maybe we just came on the off night but I doubt I go back, unless it's just for drinks.

I scheduled my wife's entire birthday surprise 4-night weekend in Palm Beach around dinner one of those nights at this restaurant where we had eaten 6 months earlier when we'd last visited Palm Beach from Miami so obviously it was worth the drive! Go eat there!

We have dined at Buccan 4 yeas in row on our annual biz conference with Coldwell Banker with a groups of colleagues and it is the highlight of the week(8/8/16). On this evening 8/19 just 3 of us came and as usual it was perfect. My portion of the bill was $113 and I think I over tipped, but that is fine.

See you next year, if not sooner. We will have only kind words for your restaurant. Matter of fact on 8/11 we came back with family to dine in your sister restaurant.

My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary here with an excellent dinner. We love the concept of small and large plates. Everything was prepared perfectly in the kitchen and served flawlessly by Francisco, our waiter. We ordered three small plates and one large, dessert and coffee. We had such a good time at Buccan and highly recommend this restaurant.

2 in our group of 4 had a delayed flight. Tried calling at least 10x + voice message to try and adjust reservation. No answer to any calls! Arrived late because of delayed flight and we were consequently sat at the community table instead (which is too large given the noise level to have a conversation across). Had to wait 40 more minutes for a private table to open up. Disappointed with this experience because of that. All it required was for the hostess to answer 1 of the 10 attempted phone calls. Also, no salad options on the menu that evening. Usually have decent experiences here.

Our meal was amazing - the agnolotti to die for! The service was impeccable and our server was perhaps the best we've ever had, anywhere. Cocktails were strong but tasteful. And I wanted to bring home one of those little copper dining tables when we left. Five stars!
