Farrell's meets Olive Garden. If you are a group of 6 or more this may be fun. Party of two not so much. I was hoping for more because of it being on Open Table. Food was nothing special. Typical chain restaurant quality.

Overall food and service was ok, and I was truly hoping to be more impressed as a first timer. Here’s where it all went wrong.

1) Just because we were a “larger” party of 9 didn’t mean we wanted to sit in a back room with other large parties... there were already 70 people in the room and the noise was ridiculous. We had to move.

2) Our server was a tall robot that didn’t have a genuine care for service. No humor, no personality, and just too serious and literal. She was more concerned about telling us about pizettes for appetizers. She was good at refills tho. Oh, don’t even ask her for directions to the restroom in that maze of restaurant.

3) At the end of it all, she forgot it was a birthday, and was blasé as she asked what flavor ice cream we wanted. When it arrived, she left them on the table, walked away and said she’d be back with singers. I counted two minutes until she returned with a candelabra and singers. Wait, we had to ask for spoons from a busboy because she ran off.

4) The outsourced photographer element is annoying. She kept repeating her prices, and then hovered around the table, repeating prices more, and made the whole picture taking / decision making process uncomfortable.

Look, we’re not prudes one bit, and we eat out often as a family, but sheesh the cadence of it all was very off, and the result very off-putting.

I really loved the environment and the walk through the restaurant, that may have been the best part as a first timer besides the food.

We had to send our appetizer back due to a hair being found in the fried calamari. No problem, accidents happen. Our dinner arrives and while eating I pulled a long hair out of my mouth from the dish of pasta. Absolutely unacceptable! I’ll never dine here again!!!

Great experience during meal. We were asked to leave our table because of a large party reservation. We had finished our meals but were enjoying our conversation and our time in the restaurant.
I feel they could have planned seating better or could have moved us to another table. Family?

Another amazing family dinner at Buca. However, it was my first time using OpenTable reservations here. We had a group of 12 for Mother's Day lunch. Our server, Emma, really added to the experience; staying positive and happy amidst all of our customizations and possible headaches lol. Very pleased with the service and I'm always pleased with the food here at Buca. We will definitely be returning.

Service score low due to host stand, they were in the weeds and it was only 20 minutes after opening, empty tables and it took over 15 minutes to be seated...they seemed totally out of control. On the other hand out server Chris was fantastic and turned the situation around.

We checked in and got seated right away, the service was great, the food was great, I think they raised their prices a bit, but it’s California, so everyone else is too.

As a regular, I feel that the restaurant has gotten much dirtier -- from the entrance to the dining areas... Even the plates and the utensils don't look as clean as they used to be...

Worst service we’ve ever had. I booked our large party weeks in advanced and requested a small room. We get there and get sat in a room with 10 other large groups, and the AC was not working. I requested to be moved. We got moved. But unfortunately our service was not good. Took over an hour to get our food, we sat there 20 minutes with no plates to eat with. So disappointed. We won’t be coming back to this location again.

Not enough sauce for The spaghetti very dry. You offered the meatballs sandwich and I was told it was for lunch only. It did not state that on your invitation.

We always go to buca for bdays. The food was great and faster then expected. The service was horrible thigh. Drew short for Andrew, had some issurmes with bringing out ALL types of our orders. The food came out great cause the other servers brought them to us. But we never got what we asked for even when we asked over 3 times for it, (Drinks) We were there 2.5 hrs and all parties around us were in after us and out before us. It trully was a bad experience duribg this bday party we had. But great food as always. Thank you

Sat us in a pathway of heavy traffic. Order was incorrect and they did replace, just took longer. Wire brush particle in soup. They did take it off our bill. Had to grab our own plates. Food was eh! Could get better food at a different place for the price. Pricey. Waited 30 minutes before sitting. Would not go back.
