Booked our reservation for my finances 30th birthday two weeks in advance. Our party arrived 10 minutes early for a 9:30 reservation, I had brought a cake as well early in the day. We were told on arrival it would be at our reservation time which we totally understood and that the table would be ready shortly. We did not sit down until 10:15 at a table on top of the kitchen at a high top. I could understand if we did not have a reservation.. but sitting on top of the kitchen at a barstool was not ideal.

The manager did bring out a few small plates for us to share - which all of the food was delicious and once our service began- was excellent.

Would of rather had an honest answer upfront than standing around for 45 minutes.
Great place for a group of people at an appropriate table.

Steve was a poor waiter. The first bad evening out of 20+ times here. The new dish, shrimp saginacki was not described fully. It had a lot of cilantro which I cannot tolerate. It was in a very acidic tomato sauce and the capers and cheese ,olives and grilling did not work for us. Too many contrasting flavors. The new crispy duck was good. Waiter took away my knife OP before I was finished. He brought the butter too late. Both knives had been removed. Snatched the check before my friend could put her card in. He is not the caliber of the others there. Very unpleasant, brusque.

Buccan is alway beyond delicious. The food was amazing and the service, excellent. The Tuna Crisps, Steak Tartare and the Stuffed Squash Blossoms appetizers were the rave at our table! Wonderful wine selection as well! Our waiter, Sebastian made amazing recommendations and provide us the best service! We’ll be back soon.

We arrived late for our reservation, but the hostess was very friendly and accommodating. We ended up sitting in the bar room, and had a wonderful waiter. We had a delicious bottle of wine for 1/2 price (on Mondays), and delicious food. Love the mushroom pizza and brussels sprout Caesar. Great night!

Really lovely experience despite the hookers at the bar. 2nd time I’ve been to Buccan that ladies of the evening were present. Yuck However, the food was great especially the duck with black rice. And the watermelon martini was delicious. I will say it is a very loud restaurant so be ready to try and talk above the din.

The food here is amazing, lots of unique fun choices so be adventurous. Our waiter, Steve, was attentive, helpful and clearly loves mixing with people, he made the evening that much better. It is exceptionally loud as it gets more crowded but the food and service makes it worth not having quiet conversation!

Always our favorite when in town. Sometimes hard to get a table, but last week we just walked in and scored a couch in the open seating area and ate there. Great service, food, and ambiance.

The things that no one mentions are that the valet is speedy and polite, the hosts are friendly and organized, the bathroom is clean, the M’aitre D checks on every table to get feedback, the decor is contemporary chic.
Most people would be thrilled with only these things and a decent meal.

The menu is creative competent and diverse. A person with a restricted diet can enjoy too!
I think MR Conley deserves a James Beard award for his consistently complex spins on Modern dining.

Also our server, Sebastian was thoughtful, knowledgeable, and completely competent.

Thanks for an awesome night out!

Energetic and cozy ambiance; creative and truly delicious food, served on small plates so you can try a bunch of things. Well run place with friendly service. One of the top couple of places in the whole Palm Beach, West Palm Beach areas. Well worth going!! There is a small bar, a lounge area you can eat in and a large table in the dining room. Perfect place for a birthday party or other special occasion!

Other than having to wait until 9.45 for our 9.15 reservation everything was outstanding. We got there early at 8.15 bc the bar area is so much fun, so it didn’t really matter!

Nice setting, terrific service. The hamachi was way too salty as was the octopus. Chef has heavy hand with salt!!
The filet steak was good but not A+, and the mashed potatoes way too creamy (inedible for me).
General impression: good, but slightly overrated food but high rank for setting, ambience and people watching.
A once a year restaurant.

Buccan never fails to deliver innovative flavorful dishes. I love the restaurant concept: small plates / tapas style, and the sizes are just perfect for sharing. There are so many things to try and we absolutely loved the Tuna Crisp and Steak Tartare -outrageously delicious - so as the Short Rib Empanada, the Brussels Sprouts Caesar Salad, and the Sweet Corn Agnolotti.
Our server, Andrew , was AMAZING!!! He was very professional, helpful and knowledgeable about the menu, making great suggestions for food and wine. Overall, we all had such a great night, the food, atmosphere and service were just perfect! We’ll be back soon!

Superb food, as always! Kale salad - generous serving - perfectly dressed with pine nuts, currants, and Parmesan. Steak Tartar - a wonderful combination of well spiced meat, which is also nicely chilled, with a warm, poached egg yolk on top. Malaysian duck is absolutely fabulous. The leg is prepared in a "duck confit" style, served in just the right amount of curry, over black rice, and topped with shredded, spicy, marinated vegetables - the combination is a real winner. Hope this duck dish stays on the menu indefinitely. The staff is professional, friendly, helpful, easy-going. The open kitchen is fun to see (if one is into cooking). Remarkable consistency over the years. Bravo, Buccan!
