We where there to celebrate a birthday but felt very rushed - I guess we picked a busy night. Not sure we would celebrate a birthday there again. We have been there others times and had a more relax celebration.
Great meal with family for a birthday. Great service!!Thank you
The waitress was excellent, the ambiance was eclectic and the food was pretty good
They were out of the wine we like. Advised we were celebrating a birthday but they didn’t do anything special.
Very few people in the restaurant, a reflection of the poor food and lack of good wine
Eggplant Parmesan and the Gorgonzola Salad were delicious as usually BUT the salad had some bad apples in it that were turning dark.
We heard a manager badgering our waitress and commenting on her performance in front of customers. That’s horrible management and we were very disappointed to hear that.
The food was excellent as usual. The hostess was unfriendly tho. We’ve had better receptions in the past. The waiter took very good care of us and made up for the cold reception.
We ordered the spaghetti with 3 meatballs on the side, I forgot how big the meatballs were, (baseball size) needless to say we had enough leftovers for 2 more meals. Our waitress was very attentive and gave us lots of bread.
Buca is a fun place, just be prepared for noise. We were seated next to a table of 15 (a family) and they could drown out the noise at DFW Airport. It's an Italian place, so I suppose I should expect "mobs", but this is not the place to propose or break up - unless you want assistance. That said, the staff is great, the food is great, service didn't suffer from being seated next to a huge group, and we never felt rushed - on a Saturday night. I love this place. Just beware, I'm not the only one.
It was my daughter’s 21st Birthday & we were there to celebrate. We were seated pretty quickly. However, after arriving, another party of 8 was also seated in the same small dining area. They were very rude blowing straw wrappers at us & laughing as if they were 12. They were also VERY loud!!! The dining area was very hot and we were sweating. & unable to eat our food. Our server seemed extremely overwhelmed, although she tried. Our order was taken but part of it was wrong when brought to the table. The white sangria tasted like a bottle of wine poured over ice... not pleasant at all. I told the waitress it was my daughters Birthday but she was not sang too, nor was a dessert brought to her. We have been to Buca many times & this was the worst. It is very expensive & we only go for special occasions. After tonight, we will not be going back. Very disappointed!!!!
Our waitress was terrible. We sat with no water, didn’t bring appetizer, just terrible service.
We used to love this place but it has gotten so dirty, is outdated, twilight-zone service on New Year's Eve family dinner. At 4:15 pm they were obviously under-staffed and had sub par servers working, not to mention hostess non existent....had to literally walk in to kitchen to flag down someone since there were multiple families in lobby waiting to be greated/sat. From now on I am pretty sure we will be a take-out family since their food is great, but the place itself needs some TLC. Oh, and cheesy garlic bread is always our favorite in town, but this time came out so hard and tasteless. We didn't even let our server know since she could barely handle the few tables she had (we were party of 3). We just sucked it up and wasted $9. OH well.
The service was not great. I felt like maybe we had been assigned a server who had a different section because it seemed we were a last thought. We had to ask two other servers for drinks and silverware.
Went here last Christmas as well. Always a great experience . They’re busy and seating takes a while , but it’s Christmas . Food is awesome .
The bar was out of 3 different wines we ordered. The service was slow and the tables next to us were never bussed. We were surrounded by stacked dirty dinner plates all night. Generally the place was dirty and loud.
Christmas Eve Dinner
The restaurant seemed understaffed, and had trouble getting us seated on time. Food was great as usual, and I attribute the challenges they seemed to have with holiday rush, and won’t hesitate to go back for another meal.
The food is always great and the service is typically very good. Been here many times and it seems that we are always sitting next to a large group. Then it makes it difficult to have a conversation with your party without screaming and it takes away from the service at the table.
If you are going with a group it is an amazing place though. Always have had a good time even with the loud atmosphere.
We go to Buca’s because it’s easy & we aren’t terribly familiar with the area. I always make excuses for it, but no more. We had a 7:30 reservation & arrived at about 7:20. There was no one else in the lobby when we checked in but it quickly filled up with other diners who had reservations. It took us at least 20 minutes to be seated, due largely in part to the hostesses incompetence. Mass confusion is the best way to describe it. Without going into too much detail about our night...slow to be seated, slow to get drinks, slow to take our order, below average & over priced food. I’m not doing it anymore. I’ll find somewhere else to spend my money.
