Buca di Beppo - Brea Ratings and Reviews
My family & I have always have had good meals at Buca di Beppo. The food, the sangria, and of course the service from the reception desk to our table...excellent. The service we received from our server Jonathan was the best. He was very kind, courteous, and so accommodating. If you can just imagine celebrating mother's day with 6 women and 3 men. But Jonathan was great. He was there & he was very pleasant too.
Lost our reservation for Mother's Day.
Made reservation weeks in advance through Open Table. I received an email confirmation, but when we arrived my wife was told they didn't have a reservation. They started to turn my wife away, until I produced the email confirmation, then the manager stated that she found the reservation. It was a terrible and awkward start to a special occasion.
We were there to celebrate my moms 87th birthday! We requested a round table but none were available so we were stuffed into a long booth. We made the best of it but we were visibly cramped for table space. The dishes are just too large for the table.
Food was great as expected and service was great. We killed the large lasagna. So yummy! The photographer took good pictures but was a bit quirky with asking/confirming who was with whom.
Still a good time overall.
It started off great. Open Table makes it so easy to check in without the hassle of waiting for our table to be ready. Once in, the hostess was great and even gave my family a tour of the restaurant. Once we were seated it seemed like the bartender was also our server. Let's just say he didn't act like he wanted a tip. We waited a while for everything and he had a snobby demeanor about him. I hope this changes soon because we do like this place.
I have mixed feelings about this recent supper. On the one hand, the Chicken Limone was truly wonderful. I could rave on about it--tender, tasty, etc. But the bread was cold, wrinkly, and generally blah. And worse, the green beans had previously been really, really good, and this time they were barely passable even as a side dish. It may be that my previous experiences happened to be at the ideal peak of harvest time--I don't remember the exact month. But even Trader Joe's frozen green beans are much better than tonight's large, tough, and lacking taste. Overall still a good experience.
We've been using open Table for years and have never experienced an issue until today. When we checked in for our reservation on time (6pm) the hostess took my name and said we'd be seated in a few minutes. They were extremely busy but we sat right next to the hostess booth. 25 minutes later my fiancé and I are still waiting, there seems to be down time because all 3 hostesses were waiting around and people that came after us had all been seated. I finally get up to ask and it was as if I never checked in, asked for my name again and what time I had reservations for. Once they realized that we were never checked in it seemed as if we were just accommodated. One hostess immediately told another to seat us. It was obvious that we were never checked in to begin with and they couldn't find our reservation. Very misleading when the girl that initially took our name made it seem as if we were all checked in. We were pretty upset about how it all went down. No one ever apologized or recognized that there was a mistake made. We wouldve been very understanding. We were celebrating our ten year anniversary that we specified in the reservation but no one acknowledged it. Food was great and service was fine. It's so unfortunate that we didn't receive some apology or accommodation. I would never use open Table again for this particular bucca.
The food is family style and amazing! Portions are very large (even the smalls). If you have a birthday you can go to special link to do your reservation and they send you a coupon for a free cake to enjoy on your visit, the cake is large enough for the whole table. The house wines were good too! I love Buca, their food is amazing!
