Buca Yorkville Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic food (the duck pasta, duck breast, cured fish/seafood selections and shrimp carpaccio were amazing), great service and nice atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.
Fantastic service and food by the staff and chefs at Buca Yorkville. I really appreciate the fact that they knew it was my wife's birthday and had arranged a gift to celebrate. We will definitely return and have already mentioned this incredible restaurant to our friends. Thank you for going above and beyond.
Outstanding , recommend to anyone and can’t wait to go back!
We are always impressed with the constant high quality food and service offered at this restaurant.. can’t wait for my next visit!
Amazing food, even better service. Would definitely return.
outstanding brunch, loved everything we had. Great environment and decor
Excellent spot for lunch or dinner 2-4 diners. Perfect by south window - natural light and less noisy.
delicious, as always
Food was excellent however service left something to be desired. We were left waiting on two occasions for a significant period of time for wine to arrive. One of the items I wished to order was not available but this was not made clear until well after the order. When one has a later reservation staff should be aware of what has run out and be sure to keep on top of this. It is not acceptable to make a selection and then be told it is not available at the prices and at this caliber of restaurant. It is not acceptable to be left waiting for wine pairing for long periods of time after food has arrived.
We found the food to be of a high caliber but are very disappointed in the service. The room was noisy and difficult to understand staff.
Amazing... from the food to the service to the atmosphere!
Excellent service and delicious food. I could eat those bread knots literally all day...and the pizelle dessert, incredible!
I had a nice dinner with my family and friends. I ordered the veal, buffala pizza, duck egg pasta which was best dish. Apps we had tried seafood and chef choice salami plate...very unique.
Very tasty dessert, we got the Apple tart and tiramisu. Great service but the food was by far the star.
It was my wife' birthday and we always spend it alone together at an eating place. Buca was chosen after reading the write ups. It truly lived up to all the information we read.
We would recommend to all that are looking for an exceptional place to go to relax with outstanding
and excellent menu.
Service was very snobby and rude. We felt like we were somehow not good enough, not trendy enough, not rich enough to warrant our server's attention. That is not the way one should be made to feel in any setting, anywhere. The whole place had that air about it.
The food was not that great either. Pizza was acceptable, pasta was bland and tasteless. The only positive thing we could say is the food came relatively quickly. But we'd never go there again and were sorry we picked it.
Very nice atmosphere. Andrew who was my waiter was very knowledgeable in regards to the menu. Most of it was in Italian so I can't remember exactly what the dishes were called but I had scallops. Very tasty, very light meal though. You'll need an additional dish. Also had a grand frito I think it was called. It's an assortment of fried vegetables and fish. Very good you can really taste all of the different flavors. Something as simple as onion really stood out and tasted great. A little pricey though depending on what tax bracket you're in.
Buck proved to match the considerable hype hear around Toronto as a must dine experience. Our waitress was delightful and the food was inventive and delicious. This restaurant is worth visiting anytime one is in Toronto.
Fantastic food with meticulous attention to detail. Service a little slow at times. Amazing view seated overlooking the open kitchen.
Food quality varied. COD was bland and served on uninspired mush. Veal was great. Starter was great but hugely too small as a sharing option as advertised. Overpriced and inconsistent menu.
Awesome food and service. Tiramisù is phenomenal!
Love Buca! One of my favourite restaurants in Toronto
Amazing food and menu! Every single item we ordered was fantastic! Great for seafood lovers. Max was our server and was a pleasure and made
Great recommendations! Will definitely be back to try the branzino!
Terrible evening with good friends.
All Italian men, hard to understand their English. Each staff member had 1 job. (Water boy , bread boy, Napkin man l, bus boy. No one communicated to each other.No one asked how was the food. Pizza took 90 minutes to arrive. We had to ask for the check 5 times!
The staff are definitely way too cool about themselves. Not friendly, not warm and very very rude to us when we left.
I thought BUCA was one of Toronto’s best restaurant s to take my London, NYC & Paris food friends. Embarrassing . Bad!
This food ‘destination’ would never survive outside Toronto, Canadians are just too nice and polite. Way too expensive to be polite. Maybe BUCA just gets dumb out of town guests — staying at the hotel accrued the street.
I would NEVER recommend BUCA.
Unique brunch experience.
The food was delicious !
But they were out of most of the fish selection.
We had the Branzino crudo. So good!!
Beautiful restaurant with fantastic food, impeccable service and delicious cocktails.
Just about as good as it gets, too bad you get a bill at the end. Top 3 special occasion restaurant for sure. The birthday, boxed take away is almost the nicest gift of any restaurant.
The room is beautiful but the noise level really bothered me and I'm pretty easy going about these types of things. The menu is somewhat limited. I paid $41. for 3 scallops....that's not value even if the food is incredible. I might go back for a drink and starters at the bar.
Overpriced for the food. Would not go back. Service was fine.
Attentive staff and great food. Coffee was delish.
When we first showed up, I wasn't too happy being 15 minutes late resulted in our seat being bumped, but it is reasonable and were sat in a new spot instead. We were served by Scott, who was able to recommend us with good wine and starters. I knew he was genuine when he held me back from ordering an item and recommended a second item instead once based on the conversation we had briefly. Food came out quick and in good portions.
I have been to Buca on King and now Yorkville, I would recommend Buca on King 9/10 times to anyone, but for that special someone who is a seafood fanatic, I would say this particular Buca wins out.
Amazing food , great service, beautiful interior and enjoyed a cool experience to see them cut their signature dish, Branzino in front of you. Also tried Nodini and the Bigoli, both very delicious. Will definitely recommend to all friends.
Order the octopus and the spot prawns crudo. Pasta was exactingly al dente. Wines by the glass are exactingly un-generous tiny pours so just buy a bottle and leave the remains.
My boyfriend and I both ordered the pasta and it was delicious. The portions were just right with enough room for dessert. However, we felt we were not treated with as much respect as our neighbors, likely because we weren't dressed as well or were younger. I would highly recommend the food but felt the service will deter me from visiting again.
It was an enjoyable experience. Our server was extremely attentive and great at introducing us to the menu. He recommended the poached duck eggs with pecarino cheese, which the three of us had. It was quite spectacular. The dessert was light and sweet, perfect after the filling cheese and egg.
Overpriced, bad service, food wasn’t great.
Waiter was rude and had no knowledge of anything on the menu.
Over priced and under deliver, should be their slogan.
Found a live worm in my salad, their response was it's fresh and organic. My thoughts are they don't wash their greens.
Loved it! Food was awesome and we had great service.
The deep fried asparagus with scallops and lobster was amazing. Went off the menu with the pizza and they were very accommodating. Sommelier set us up with a terrific Italian red.. compo buri. Great overall experience!
Always consistent... food, service and ambiance! Their in-house wine expert help us picked the perfect wine to pair with what we ordered. Our server was gracious and was there when we needed him.
