What you would expect from a high demand chain restaurant. Food institutional. Bartender told us since they were busy the last few days, not much wine selection as management forgot to order wine. Waiter was great, food ok - bar service awful.

I would not recommened Buca di Beppo to anyone. It was a bad experience right from the starts. Reservations were set for 8:15 PM on Saturday 2/17/18. We arrived at 8 PM to make sure we were not late. We were not seated until 9 PM. My kids were hungry and my wife was very unhappy. Multiple people were quite unhappy as their reservations were 45 min to an hour late. Many people left, and left in a loud manner. For walk ins they were telling people 2 hour wait. I had reservations and it was almost an hour wait. According to the manager, they had booked 3 banquets and did not have any tables for walk in customers. What poor planning and poor customer service. To top it off, the kitchen was backed up also, so from when we ordered to when the food came out was another 30 minutes. The food looked and tasted like it was rushed out. Notthe quality that Buca is known for. What should have been a fun and loving Saturday night family dinner instead became a waiting game. Waiting to be seated and waiting for our food. And not once did a manager or host come by and apologize for the delays. Open Table should make sure the restaurants they partner with honor and respect the reservations set up in Open Table. Otherwise why take reservations? This entire experience makes me rethink whether I want to continue using Open Table in the future.

The restaurant was very busy, which is to be expected when a large convention is in town. Our table was not ready at the time of our reservation, which was a little disappointing, however the staff quickly made up for it. Our server, Lauren, was great. She was personable, gave great recommendations and most importantly, attentive. My group loved the family style dinner. The food was delicious and came out quickly. This was my first time at Buck but will certainly not be my last.

We've been to this Buca a few times and overall its a great experience every time. There was a mix up this time when we were seated and we were seated in a section that might have been overbooked. Our server was extremely busy but gave us excellent service regardless. We generally visit this location when in the area because its customer service and quality are superb. Would highly recommend if in the area but make sure to book ahead because it gets very busy.

Good experience. Food was very good. We had a group of nine so I wish they had round tables so everyone could speak with everyone. Long tables only allow for conversation with those closest to you. I’d think as a family restaurant, they’d have at least some round tables.

The decor and food are good but the noise level is out of control. I've been at rock concerts where it was easier to hold a conversation.

Food is great but service is very poor. Our server RICO is so unattentive with our needs. Did not refill our water on time, did not give us clean plates,napkins unless we ask and we have to repeat asking before giving it.

Good food, good service, excellent value. The noise level is high, so conversation is difficult. While we knew it was "family style", we weren't expecting the portions of the desert to be THAT big (one desert would easily feed 5, we ordered 2 deserts between 3 people).

We absolutely love eating at Buca where we get a great meal and best of all get to have James as our server! We always sit in the bar area because by far James is one of the best servers of all time! He provides 5 star 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 customer service and always remember us when we come in!

At a convention at the Anaheim Hilton and looking for a last minute reservation for a group of business friends. This place had room and was excellent. Our server helped us choose the right amount of food to serve us all family style. Place was a great value.

We have eaten here plenty of times and have never been disappointed. Our favorite dish as a family is the Spaghetti and Meatballs.
