Despite having a reservation we waited 30 minutes for a table for 2. The steak tartare and the tuna crisps were very good the rest of the food was average (short rib empanadas are over-rated, the sweet corn agnolotti is good but not great like people rave).

We came to Buccan for my birthday and hey were great! Despite one bad oyster that caused me to get sick (they didn't take them off the bill....and it was bad! I'm an oyster expert and this one, granted out of 12, was bad!) But I will still go back. Just not for the oyster platter!

Absolutely no culinary shortcomings to this place! Off the charts food, service and drink. Only part of the experience that could have been better was noise and that was only because of a energetic group close to us. Without any question, we will dine here every time we return to the area.

This is a great hidden gem on Palm Beach island! The food is delicious and unique, and our service, as provided by Andy with an assist from Charles, was excellent. We were also fortunate to meet Kristen, the Manager, who could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Their prices are very reasonable as well, especially considering their location. We look forward to returning for dinner soon.

Amazing food & service, as always. Been to Bucaan several times before this visit. It's 45 min away, but always worth the drive. A real Palm Beach atmosphere & I LOVE the small plates. We always go with 6 or more and get 8-10 different appetizers and rarely get a main dish. The small plates are perfect for tasting the unusual, but not too exotic dishes and what we loved, we ordered again and again. This visit was for my birthday, sat at the Chef's table and got to see the kitchen during our whole dinner. The waiter was exceptional, addressed me by name the whole time, was so attentive and suggested some things we wouldn't have ordered on our own. The food is always consistently delicious and worth the trip from West Boca to Palm Beach. Highly Recommend!!!

LOUD!! And the food was excellent. Service was great. If they would turn the volume down from 11 somehow it would greatly improve the ambiance in my opinion. If you want the Palm Beach party scene with excellent food and service the noise level may not detract from your experience.

Every bite was delicious, try the truffle pizza and anything with the gnocci - serious yum! But, be sure to save room for Rickey's PROPER ICECREAM - every bite was worth every calorie!

Been on our list to dine at Buccan for sometime as it is in Palm Beach and a great destination. We dined last evening and had a great evening . Being off season u can get in. I would call it hip , trendy but not stuffy. It is small plates to share ( which I am not a fan) but it was fantastic. . We had the octopus, ravioli and a mushroom pizza. Very fine food and an excellent experience .
