Our first visit a complete success. Food and service and drinks were outstanding. A bit noisy, but not problematic. Best steak tartar in a long time. Would go back just for that.

We went to Buccan to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I love the idea of small plates because it gives you the opportunity to try a variety of different foods. My only complaint is that it was a little loud but overall the experience was excellent and I will definitely be back.

Buccan has some amazing staff. All are so attentive and energetic! We thoroughly enjoyed Grace at the bar and our waitress from Romania. Food is pretty awesome too with such varied choices. A few tweaks on some dishes would make them even better. The Brussels Caesar had too much dressing and too many croutons. The hamachi could have been cleaner tasting without so much fluff. It didn’t seem to have much spice. But seriously, this is a great restaurant with pretty reasonable prices for Palm Beach.

Our second time there. Was extremely loud. We couldn’t carry on a conversation. Not a good choice for an anniversary dinner. We also felt rushed. The waitress was ok but not overly friendly. But we will try you again at some point

We loved the food and service. The only odd thing was that we were sat in the back where there were only tables of women. It seemed strange to me.

Buccan has the ability to take fresh ingredients and elevate them. Everything I ate was delicious and different than every other item. The cocktails were delicious and the wine list had a nice variety of prices and varietals without being overwhelming. I will definitely go back.
