 (Atlantic City)·Dined 3 days ago

I was very much looking for trying this restaurant and was saving for a special occasion. Very disappointed overall, arrived few minutes earlier and the hostess showed zero hospitality nor did she try to help us when asked where should we wait for our table. I order a tea and my server never told me my options and just got the black tea, guest preferences... I guess is not that important on a scale of this restaurant. After putting the appetizers order she REMOVED the menus not even asking us if we would like to order entrees?! I had to get up from my table and get the menu back. When asked for the suggestions as a first time guests she just pointed out to one appetizer without giving any description. At that point me and my husband were so disappointed that all we wanted to get out of there and never come back. It ruined our night completely.

This is my 4th visit to Buccan. From the valet to the waitstaff, everyone is helpful, friendly and at ease. The food is amazing, interesting and totally unique. It is my favorite Palm Beach restaurant. Hands down.

I have lived and traveled all of world and eaten at many Michelin restaurants, I anticipate Clay Conley will be recognized by Michelin in multi-stars very soon.
The cuisine is varied, excellent, healthy and creative.
We feel very fortunate to be only 7 minutes drive away, Buccan is our “ go-to”.The best!

Great 1st experience at Buccan. Our waiter, Andrew was the bomb. He gave us a great interpretation of the menu. That was totally necessary for a 1st timer. The menu is mostly small plates but really not that small. You will want to order 2 to 3 of these for 2 people or one per person for larger groups. I suggest you order one at a time... the food came out really fast. We had in order of favorites... sweet corn agnolotti, short-rib empanadas (1 per person) and hotdog panini. The pizza. Also looked amazing.... next time maybe!

We come to Buccan every time we visit Palm Beach and it gets better every time. The food choices are so variable and Everthing we order is always so good we can’t decide what to order next. Wine choices are plenty and prices very reasonable. And best of all everybody seems to be having a great time. You go in not knowing anyone and before you leave all tables around you are “ one group” comparing dishes and wines!
Really good restaurant, try it you will agree!

Disappointed to say the least came hungry left upset because food was ok. Fresh is the only good adjective I can use sorry. Celebrity chef should have higher standards. Definitely won’t be coming back nor will I be recommending to anyone. STAY AWAY!

We have enjoyed this restaurant in the past but this time was a miss! We ordered first the Brussels sprouts and they were extremely over spiced. We usually love Brussels sprouts everywhere we go but these were over the top. Next came the squid ink orrechiette and again, same story, over spiced, over salted. We said we could take it home, cook up another half pound of pasta and mix it together and then it would come out right. Then we waited and waited and waited for our main fish course. It was delicious but the wait was really long!! We did receive a complimentary delicious dessert for our troubles and a then long wait for our check. I guess it was an off night but we think we will pass on this spot from now on. I must say our server was a delight and very efficient but it just didn’t make up for the food and wait time.

Buccan is always a restaurant I am happy to return to… The food is delicious, the service is lovely and attentive. It is lively and usually booked but somehow the noise is quite manageable. My sister had a yogurt chicken special which surprisingly was oversalted. We both have the kale salad to start which was refreshing and scrumptious… Possibly the only edible Kale I've ever had. My Bay scallop entrée was perfect 😊

We arrived at 8:30 for an 8:45 reservation. We were told that our table would be ready soon, they were "just finishing dessert". I got the same answer every 15 minutes as I checked on our table. At 9:30 the receptionist still had no answer on when a table would really be available. We left without eating. Worse. When I looked on open table for an alternate restaurant. Buccan listed a table available at 9:45.

Everything here is perfect. The food is amazing, the service attentive without being overbearing, the wine list superb. Our server was very helpful in guiding us through the menu, and did not try to urge us to order more. We'll go back soon to try more dishes on the imaginative, but not outrageous, menu.

Buccan was highly recommended. We had a nice stroll from the Breakers hotel to the restaurant. Lovely ambiance. My spouse and I shared a nicely done brussel sprout "salad" -- a tad rich and a skooch salty, but pretty tasty. Our ahi appetizer didn't show up, so we canceled it as the entrees were being delivered. My spouse ordered a lovely pasta dish. My snapper was average plus, but not outstanding. Bread accompaniment was ok -- the "crackerish" option being a bit too salty as an offset to the entrees. We'd definitely go back, should we visit Palm Beach again.
