Buca di Beppo - Honolulu Ratings and Reviews
Service had never been an issue. One thing I watch for is how often they come by to see how we are doing and keeping our water topped off. Food actually came out pretty quickly considering how busy they were, less then 20 minutes. Food was tasty but for me the one drawback is the cost of each plate. If you can live with just one single entree for three people it's affordable at about $10-$13 per person ($30-$39 per small entree). But once you want some variety and go for 2 or 3 entrees the price starts growing from there. Throw in some drinks, appetizers, and dessert...you are looking at about $40-$50 per person before taxes and tip. For that price per person I might rather choose a high end restaurant. The trade off between that choice and coming here though is that you will definitely be stuffed when you leave here compared to an equivalent priced meal at a high end restaurant. So ultimately would I recommend the place? If you have a large group, maybe 6-10 people the cost point per person might actually drop because they do have a larger portion size entree for slightly more and in a larger group you might only need to go with 3-4 entrees. But for a meal for 2 or 3 people, you might feel a bit empty in the wallet when you leave but definitely full in the tummy.
First time coming here after hearing about it from friends. Went here for Valentine’s Day and my wife and I were definitely not disappointed. At first I thought the prices were pretty high but it turns out that the portions are just huge. I shared the chicken Parmesan with my wife and we still had leftovers that we could eat for another meal. My first thought was that there would be a loss of quality with the big portions but the food was amazing and plentiful. I also had a glass of the Buco’s signature red wine, which the waiter let me sample before ordering and it was very smooth and sweet, yet still had some bitterness to it. Would come back here but with a bigger group.
VERY VERY LOUD IN OUR AREA THEY ALLOWED OUTSIDE PEOPLE TO COME IN TO THE PARTY THAT WAS NOT EVEN PART OF THE ORIGINAL GROUP LOTS OF YELLING HAPPY BIRTHDAY NOW COME ON HOW MANY TIMES TO YOU NEED TO SING EVERY TIME PEOPLE CAME TO VISIT THE GROUP THE HAS TO SING
Buca's is always a great place to go. I still haven't learned to not order too many dishes. Even the small size plates are huge! We were celebrating 2 birthdays and were pleasantly surprised with their massive brownie sundae.
The staff was great!
We had 4 generations there and the Manager (I think...) made us feel very special. My 90 year old, fabulous Mother was tickled.
Mahalo Buca for making this day extra special for us. :)
It was the worse ever! We had a very disrespectful waitress named Paulina who did not offer us anything, ignored us the whole time and we have three kids! I have never been treated so poorly in my life and will never go back which is saying a lot because I live in the condo right across the street and until this past visit, had nothing but praise for the restaurant but now I won’t go back because of how the staff there treated myself and my family. I will go as far as I need to up this restaurant’s chain because no one should feel the way we felt dining there. I even tipped $20 on a $80 bill cause I felt bad. I will tell everyone what a horrible experience I had there. I even spoke to the manager and he acted like he didn’t even care, which made things worse. There was nothing done by the staff there and even when I involved the manager, he just brushed it off and made me feel stupid. I’m going to raise this to the corporate level because it was the worse experience ever!
This food is average at best. I had an awful stomach ache just after eating the chicken lemone . My husband sent back his fettuccine alfredo because it was cold and tasted sour. The gentleman who served us was a kind, understanding man and wanted us to be happy and was very accommodating. The best part was getting our photo taken by the woman who sells photos she takes table side. Nice lady. Happy to support. She isn’t affiliated with the restaurant.
Good food, festive atmosphere. Love that you can order food family style and share several different dishes. The female photographer was a gem! She is very good at her job: witty, friendly, and took great photos (however, we did not purchase any as they were overpriced @ $20 each). I think you'd sell more pictures if you made them more affordable , especially since most of us have cameras on our phones.
Everything was good as usual but the beginning was not pleasant. The hostess I guess was having a bad night, and it showed in her service. Not even welcoming us and walking to the table said nothing. Usually we are asked if we want to see the kitchen, celebrating something ,or where the bathrooms are but all I saw was her back. Our sever in the other had was great.
Always love their food but this time was the worst ever, the deep fried calamari and the spicy shrimp was awful, it’s was cold and oily and greasy. The table we were seated was so small and you know if you have been there that their food portion are to be shared . So every time we have to use the table next to us put our used plates even our bread too. Was so disappointed the manager did took the appetizer off our bill but still very disappointed.
Although we had reservations we waited awhile to be seated since they were short on workers. I think we waited about 10 minutes. It could have been longer. They were going to seat us in the bar area and so I requested a table with better view of the TV screen. So we had to wait another 5 minutes.
I was amazed that the food was really good this time. We were there about 2 years ago for a birthday and the food was just okay. But this time I was impressed with my vegetarian pizza. The kids enjoyed the meat sauce spaghetti. The caesar salad would have been excellent but there were just too many croutons. This the first time someone order the brussel sprouts and I must say it was very good.
Service was just okay, not very much people in the bar area.
As you walk in the place is big. But those 2 hostess one with glasses and one without. The one with the glasses skinny chick very unprofessional, unfriendly and has no enthusiasm dealing with "CUSTOMERS"!!!! PLEASE SOMEBODY PLEASE REMIND THIS SNOTTY HOSTESS SHE IS WORKING WITH CUSTOMERS! PUT ON AT LEAST A FAKE SMILE. NO GREETING OR ANY SMILE. She'll take you to your table and don't say anything and just walk away. "WHAT A TURN OFF"! SHE NEEDS TO BE BEHIND THE SCENES AND WASH THOSE DISHES.😠😠😠👎👎👎👎👎 First contact is the most important to set your feelings and mood for that place. And with this hostess I'm not planning on going to this place again. She needs some "SERIOUS TRAINING ON HOW TO PRESENT HERSELF. IF SHES UNHAPPY LEAVE! 😂😂😂😂 Other than that the service was good. Food was good. Just a bit expensive.
