One of the best overall meals I’ve ever had (4 different dishes). The service was top notch from the moment we sat down until we left. 3 different people came to the table to check in on us, but it was pleasant and never overbearing whatsoever. A truly memorable experience because of the food, ambience, and service, which no doubt deserves 5 stars.

Went to Buccan for the first time and it was amazing! The service was great - prompt and our server provided great recommendations. The cocktails were very good. We ordered 4 different dishes and all tasted great and came out very hot and fresh. Would highly recommend!

Always a "go-to" place for any special occasion. Never disappoints and always happy when we can order off the Imoto(adjoining sushi restaurant) menu as well. Best of all worlds.

After almost 11 years of dining at Buccan, this might have been the most magical experience. Had the pleasure of "showing the place" off to a good friend on his first visit, and enjoyed all of the favorites. Francisco is amazing, as always, and it's so good to be back dining. Buccan is hands down my favorite place for dinner in South Florida.

Very tasty and well prepared food, novel menu. My wife and I only had small dishes and shared pasta for dinner, quite sufficient. A bit noisy but very energetic. Definitely a must in Palm Beach.

Manager Bill and his staff were gracious hosts and went above and beyond to accommodate my food allergy. The food was top notch, to say the least. I ordered 2 helpings of the steak tartare and 2 helpings of the s’more dessert… because it’s so irresistibly delicious you cannot stop eating it. I wish I could put Buccan in my pocket and take it home with me. The best food I’ve had in Palm Beach. A must for any foodie.

Insane. The most exciting dinner I can remember. A culinary circus in my mouth with every bite. I wanted to order one of everything on the menu- the tuna tartare is other- worldly, and I’ve had it everywhere in the best restaurants in America. Nothing compares! 😋

Our return to Buccan didn’t disappoint. There were a few issues with some of the dishes we ordered. One appetizer was not hot and the entree sides were also lukewarm at best, and a few items were 86’d. However, it still remains in our opinion to be one of the best restaurants in the area. With really good food, that is not only interesting but delicious as well - we will be back!
BTW: our server Tim was excellent!

Favorite restaurant in Palm Beach County! Everything was SUPERB! Drinks, short rib empanadas, sweet corn agnolotti (chef’s kiss), Florida snapper with shrimp toast, & the shakedown s’mores tart…fantastic! And our food came out super quickly…waiter was great too. Literally no complaints. Can’t wait to go back soon!
