Amazing… been a few times and it was great all around, but this time it was epic customer service. Working late with a 700 appointment… Thinking there was no shot at moving it back, I called at 6 to see if any chance I could … easing all the pressure the lady answered and instantly asked “what time would you like sir?” I said 730. Instant reply “your all set see you at 7:30”
From that to arriving and the same lady (manager I believe) said “oh yes you were the one panicking on the phone” chuckling. My wife and I were impressed. We sit and Rachel (aka Joanna Gaines) greets us as our server. Just TOP NOTCH customer service, we had zero needs all night be cause of her attentiveness and the place was packed. The food, the drinks even offering booze free espresso after the meal which was off the charts good. I told the manager when I left “you all do this right”. I’ll be back for sure soon…. Worth every penny we spent. The food was oysters (their special). Surf an Turf filet /crab stuffed shrimp (whhaaaaaat!?) and My beautiful wife had 2 kinds of reduction sauce on twin filets. Cooked perfect to a t. Well Done Buckleys!

Celebrating my son's birthday and this place didn't disappoint. The meal was great and my family brought their appetites. The service was a little slow in the beginning but food was worth the wait . Will go back , sure . The prices are bit high but everything is more expensive these days.

Great place to eat. The food is first class and was cooked to perfection. Our waitress was very very good and attentive.
If I was smart I would not tell anyone about Buckleys to make sure I could always get a table. However I can’t deny any one of the best food and service

As usual, food was great and service was just as good. We had the 8 oz filets, rib eye special and sides of truffle fries, baked potato, and asparagus. Blueberry crumble and the Tira Misu crème brûlée were awesome. Wine list for bold cabs is good with all the top names. We dine there about 1x every 2-3 months, never disappoints.

One of our favorite places to eat. Service is always top notch. Jo was our server and she went way above and beyond to make sure we were happy. Tried a new special that they were having, it was BBQ. Unfortunately the ribs were not even close to fall off the bone. Jo could tell something wasn’t right and quickly swooped in and made things great.
Having staff like this is why we continue to go back. Karen the manager on duty was also very responsive. Thank you to both these ladies for the great work.

Buckley's is so consistent after all these years, just one of the reasons we love it. Seeing some of the same staff over more than 10 years and some since day one speaks volumes about the management that cares about its staff and customers. Seafood and beef are always a good bet, and garlic mashers, sauteed mushrooms, and roasted carrots further enhance the plate. Good caesar and wedge salads, shrimp cocktail or baked oysters, and topping it all off are a great bar and bottle wine program. See you next month.

Food was excellent as was the wine list! Table we sat at rocked from being imbalanced so that it was uneven, notified management but nothing was done. Sat at a table near a window that you could feel the cold air coming through as well as sitting near a group of 10 people who were a bit rowdy. Service Excellent!
Just wish it would have been a bit more private to celebrate a milestone anniversary.

My husband and I arrived early for a reservation. One of the hostesses went out of her way to get a drink order for us while we were waiting for our table. We were both very impressed with our service from all of the serving staff. The food was pretty good and we have no complaints regarding beverages, however, I did think the curtains were pretty funny.

We took my parents for their joint birthday dinners and they had the absolute best time. The food was excellent, the service was on point, and the environment was the right mix of cozy but still lively. We had only dined here once before several years ago, but I think after this Buckley's will definitely be in the regular mix.

I’ve been here a few times over the years. Years ago it was good. Last few times I’ve been, the food was very underwhelming. My steak was half well done and half rare which was odd. Mashed potatoes serving was very small, same with vegetables. Truffle fries were all burnt on bottom, with decent ones on top. My wife got lobster ravioli. So salty we both couldn’t eat it. Had a weird sauce on it too that did not compliment the lobster. Seemed frozen not fresh. I had a couple low end scotches due to the scotch prices going up 30-40% on the menu since my last visit. Bill with two drinks, app, and two entrees and tip was 180.00. I felt as though I got scammed. Will not be going back. It’s a shame.

Food was excellent as usual. It was the busiest I've seen. The food was slightly delayed getting to the table because everyone showed up at the same time. Otherwise perfect as usual.

The food was excellent, from the appetizers through the entrees and into dessert. My entire party of 6 was very impressed. Our server, Stephanie (I believe), was very friendly and attentive. the entire staff worked well together to make sure water glasses were never empty and finished plates didn't linger on the table too long. Overall, this is a very well-run establishment with excellent food and drinks along with friendly service. Will definitely visit again.

The bar area is definitely way better decorated than the rest of the restaurant. I missed being in there cause the room we were in lacked ambiance. However our server Todd was absolutely outstanding. As a former server self, I know good service when I see it and he was incredible. Knew what I needed even before I said it.

Go here for the steaks not the seafood. We never have had a single complaint when we ordered steak here I broke out of my usual steak and tried the halibut special which was a bit dry and overcooked. Everything else was great, especially the service

Having eaten at buckleys in the past we knew what to expect. I was surprised that the noise level was quieter than usual which was pleasant for 4 people to carry on a conversation. Food is always exceptional and our waiter Billy was excellent! It was a pleasant beginning to our new years eve.
