Very consistent. Very good. Best part is you can choose from Buccan or Imoto's menu. Two of the top 3 restaurants in palm beach.

The food was excellent as always! I was there two nights in a row. the second night we were seated next to a group of loud ladies (alcohol induced). However, it was still worth the aggravation.

My wife and I had dinner here a few nights ago and really enjoyed our meal. We had eaten here before and had a great dinner and this dinner lived up to our hopes of another great dinner.

We ordered mostly appetizers and shared everything. We did order a full order of the corn agnolotti pasta which we loved the first trip and again loved. We also had empanadas, stuffed zucchini squash blossoms and steak tartare .

The service was good. The restaurant has a nice feel not stuffy. We will continue to come back when in the area.

In this case, it was a special occasion, but dining there doesn’t need an excuse. Every time we’ve been there it’s been perfect. They are a well oiled machine! Wonderful service, atmosphere, and in my opinion, the best food in Palm Beach County!

Buccan never disappoints. Food is always excellent, and great vibe. Given primarily small plate service, best if you go with 4 to 6 people with whom you like to share food. Flavor profile in each dish is terrific; every ingredient is perceived without one overwhelming the other.

Phenomenal experience at Buccan! I highly recommend the halibut, tagliatelle and pork empanadas. Everything was melt-in-your mouth good. Service was lovely (no pretentiousness). Buccan provided a fun, lively atmosphere for our dining experience.

This was the best dinner recommendation we could get for a date night. Food was phenomenal. Ambiance was wonderful. We loved it. The waiter was knowledgeable and selected a great wine for us. We were in town on vacation and having a date night and it was just perfect.

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.

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.
