Service was fantastic (Yvonne). Support staff very polished. Loved sitting near the kitchen line with the open hearth & kitchen chatter, great energy. Food was perfect, balanced flavors, & texture, same for cocktails. Homogenized jazz, did not match the excitement of food & decor, but whatever…great meal!

Whether a romantic date or a girl's night out, this place has ambiance, food, and service on point. Had the empanadas, brussels, lobster spring rolls, and tuna crisps...all excellent. Within walking distance to The Colony and Worth Ave.

First Honeymoon dinner….food was impeccable. Service was the worst I have ever had. Very impersonal, standoffish while giving other tables far more attention.

By 9pm they were out of a dish we were really looking forward to and the fish appetizer was inedible and had to be sent back. Lovely server and we have loved Buccan every time we’ve been before but this time was off.

Deafening noise level, spotty service, dishes arriving randomly (due to restaurant policy of serving things immediately regardless of the readiness of the food for the other diners at the table). The food is good here, but sound dampening is long overdue, as is consideration for patrons who want to enjoy a course together.

You can always depend on attentive service with very tasteful and unique select dishes. Also cocktails are well-put together although downside can be very noisy depending on crowd size and prices are very high.

Truly enjoyed our anniversary dinner at buccan. We were fortunate enough to be seated at the chef's table, and it's always fun to watch the chefs in action. The food was delicious as usual. I can't say enough about the service. It is attentive without being overbearing. Great experience all around.
