Excellent service, excellent meals. What a great restaurant and it was the best meal we had in West Palm Beach while visiting. My husband had the filet it was done to perfection. I had the 1/2 Chicken which was totally deboned and was done perfectly as well. I am gluten intolerant and it was easy to order gluten friendly items. Thanks for such a pleasant meal.

Went for our anniversary dinner and really enjoyed ourselves. Our server, Todd was wonderful! He was very personable and took the time describe some of the dishes in detail. We shared many dishes but our favorites were the homemade black squid ink pasta and the Warm Brussels sprouts cesear. They had a large selection of top wines by the glass and gave a generous pour. A great evening from start to finish and will return!

This was a perfect meal. Our dinner companions were running late due to a childcare issue so my date and I grabbed a seat at the bar and ordered some oysters and wine. The oysters were as fresh as possible and were meticulously shucked, and the mignonette was terrific. The wine list was very thoughtfully curated - we tasted two of the wines before ordering a bottle, and really appreciated the fact that all of the wines are available by the glass which enabled us to make our choice that way. When our guests arrived they had actually brought their (extremely well-behaved) toddler with them and the staff did not blink, but seamlessly accommodated us with both a regular and a high chair for him. We closed out at the bar, and it turned out that the bottles of wine were half price on Mondays (!!!) so our bill was a steal at around $40. The entire evening, every staff member that we encountered was extremely warm and welcoming without being obsequious, and also very knowledgable and efficient. We ordered the hamachi tiradito, warm brussels sprouts cesar, squid ink orecchiette, hot dog panini, shrimp and grits, and parmesan fries. All of the dishes were so expertly crafted and meticulously executed. That sounds kind of generic but honestly, they were so perfectly seasoned and well-prepared, I don't know how else to say it. Everything had such a balance of flavor and texture, we kept thinking that each dish that came out was going to be the best one until we got the next one. Honestly, I cannot remember the last time I ate at a restaurant that had food of this fine-dining quality and also had portions this generous. All of the dishes were easily split between 4.25 adults. We did not get any more wine after the first bottle so our bill for this feast was $115. Um what?! We were just visiting but our friends who live in WPB are very excited to return, and although there are always exciting new places to try in Palm Beach, I have no doubt that we will also be back.

This is still by far and away the best restaurant in Palm Beach. It is the only restaurant with an imaginative interesting menu with dishes full of flavour and in my opinion the only one that comes close to deserving a Michelin Star.
My only tiny criticism, having eaten here 6 or 7 times is their needs to be more changing of the menu.

This was my second time at Buccan and it has been great both times. The menu is interesting but not so eclectic as to be intimidating. The service was great and the setting relaxed and casual. Highly recommend trying it.

Visited Buccan on Mother’s Day. We’ve been there many times and have always enjoyed the experience. We noticed several new items on the menu but we always stick with our tried and true entries. The service was very good. Our servers checked on us often but was not intrusive. Being a holiday evening, the restaurant was busy but the noise was not overpowering. We look for to another dining experience at Buccan

My second visit; took my kids who are foodies and we were all so happy. Steak tartare is the best anywhere! And the sweet corn agliotti deserves its reputation. Amazingly, we saved room for dessert and the shortcake and parfait were delicious. Already planning our next visit.

Chaotic. Noisy.
Appetizers merely fair. We both ordered entree steak and side of broccolini. Steak was overwhelmingly salt. I felt myself swelling as I ate. My wife couldn’t finish one bite. Side vegetable was pure garlic and also inedible. Overpriced at $52 ( which I would have unflinchingly paid if it was good) Rubbed even more salt in the wound.

Only thing better than the ambiance, food, and service was my beautiful wife! Incredible food and overall experience across the board. My best friend, a prestigious exec chef in South Florida, recommended Buccan and he was spot on! Thank you all for the great experience. We’ll see you again shortly.

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.

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.
