Buca di Beppo - Maple Grove Ratings and Reviews
Overall bad experience that seemed like everybody there was new to the job and a management didn't care.
For a walk in we were told it'd be an hour wait until I reserved it in open table and was let right in. They were out of booze and ingredients to make several of their advertised drinks and even some common liquors. The food came out on time and was good, but we were told they were all out of big plates so we were served on the small bread plates until I asked for bigger ones. The people at the table next to us didn't get silverware until they asked for it (after their appetizers were dropped off) and when the waiter came back he handed them a pile of silverware and told them they didn't have any wrapped. Then they had to ask for napkins.
The person that dropped off our food tried delivering it to several different tables before he got to ours and had also tried to drop off other people's food to us. I had to go to the bar and ask for water and more drinks because out waiter didn't come back around. I had to do the same with the check after it was dropped off because we were sitting at the table with our card in the holder for ten minutes.
Again, overall bad experience with bad service and instead of anybody trying to find a way to improve the experience all that was given were a couple curt excuses.
We had a 6:15 reservation last night. We were seated around 6:20. We ordered at 6:25 pretty soon after being seated. It took 50 minutes to get our meal to us. The food was lukewarm but it still tasted good enough to eat. Besides I didn't want to go through the hassle of trying to get more food after 50 minute wait for our initial dinner. Our waitress was odd. She wasn't rude and she seemed to know what she was doing, but the way she interacted with us was just odd. She seemed to be doing some kind of Southern California "I'm really cool" routine. It was just odd. We thought it strange that they walked us through the kitchen in order to get us to our table. Over all, it wasn't the type of experience I was looking for. I think there are other restaurants in Maple Grove that can provide better quality food with a faster service time and a more professional wait staff.
Host/greeter/seater was not very friendly. Asked for a different talk and he copped an attitude about it was 6PM and they were busy. Ha, I made the Open Table reservation 5 minutes before we got there AND we walked right by an open table. We eventually ended up at that table. Overpriced like usual when 3 people got there!
Met an old friend there because she likes Italian food and I had a "birthday coupon" for $20 off $40. They were running a "$45 meal deal" promotion that we decided to order rather than do a la carte... and even though the server knew that I had the coupon and that it did not apply to other offers, she did not tell me that until she had placed our order with the kitchen. Had I known, we would have ordered dishes that we like (rather than the limited ones on the "meal deal") and used the coupon. Looks like bad service. The food was cold and so mediocre - bland sauce, overpowering garlic bread (my friend would not eat the latter). It has been a long time since I have eaten at this restaurant, and now I remember why. Won't be going back.
We were celebrating my son's birthday and had a great time!! Our server, Saffron, was AWESOME! The team made our party feel welcome and engaged the little ones with our party in a positive way. The food was delicious and ample for the amount of people in our party! We would recommend Buca di Beppo to others celebrating a special day or to enjoy a delicious dinner.
The food was terrible. Our salad came out before the appetizer. The calamari was spicy which was not told to us. The chicken we ordered was not flavorful and our kids ordered a make your own pasta and it can out with hot pepper flakes instead of garlic. Very disappointed and will have a real hard time going back
We went with a group of 6 +2 kids in the early afternoon. We had to wait a bit for them to get a server together seeing as how they just opened, but the host was super pleasant and let us know what's happening. My drink, the sparking solerno, was super strong. I don't mind a bang for my buck but it could barely finish it and be able to drive home safely.
The prosciutto stuffed chicken was amazingly crispy and the sauce I just wanted to lick the plate. The baked ziti was meh with all the cheese melted on top masking the super tasty red sauce. The shrimp fettuccine could have used more sauce.
The bruschetta is the absolute perfect starter. I could have eaten the giant serving myself
Normally I very much enjoy this restaurant, however, we had several order mishaps - a dish forgotten, another prepared wrong, and then leftovers from another table brought to us instead of our own. In addition, the bathroom (at least the women's restroom) was filthy. I know that this can't be controlled by the restaurant, but the noise level was so high that I couldn't hear members of our party from across the table. Overall, the experience was much less than I had expected or hoped, although the food was tasty.
Manager was very apologetic about an extremely long wait and made it right for our group. They were abnormally busy with prom season and I think it caught them off guard a bit. They made it right with our group but with young kids we would rather have been seated quicker. We would return again as the staff was very professional in a tough situation and I believe they will fix the wait next time around. Can't beat the family atmosphere and value on good food.
Food was very good. Service a little lacking but that may have been because we were there on a Saturday evening that was also a prom night for large groups of teenagers! We were also disappointed that when the server took our leftover food back to the kitchen to box up, she asked us if we also wanted to take the leftover garlic bread home. We said we sure did (we had ordered a large order so we would have some available to eat with our leftovers at home, plus we'd paid for it). When we got home and checked our bag, there was no bread to be found. Quite disappointing. Would be different if we hadn't been charged for it, but really.... Not a huge deal all in all, but still a disappointment.
We made a reservation for 13 for Easter brunch. I work at a church, and holidays are much easier if I do not have to cook. We had a 90-year-old great grandma and a 1-year-old baby in our group. The restaurant recognized that we needed to be served quickly, as the baby would not tolerate a long wait. They did a wonderful job of handling the large group. Good food, great service.
There were 20 of us for Easter. We didn't pre order. The service was exceptional and they helped us figure out how much of each item to order ( large or small). The good was delicious and the servings were very large!! Wonderful day and we would all do it again!!
The service was ok, the waitress only came around few and far between. She also was very assuming and didn't seem to listen to us, but act on impulse. She spilled on our drinks on the table, but didn't offer to wipe it up or bring us additional napkins so that we could do it. All of our menus were also filthy.
