Buca di Beppo - Greendale Ratings and Reviews
Initially the hostess stated (to members of our party) our reservation wouldn't be honored because it was made same day but then when I got there 2 minutes later they had a table ready for us. Found that completely unacceptable. Our server was very forgetful and distracted. Had to ask for things like napkins and such multiple times. Food was good though.
I scheduled my reservation for Mother's Day. I received the confirmation email from Open Table and I even received a confirmation call from Buca's. When the time for my event arrived and I called to make a small change to the reservation, I was informed that I did not have a reservation. After informing my family, we decided to go somewhere else. I called again and I spoke with JT. She wasn't sure how that happened and she did offer to try and fit us in. I informed JT that this situation was unprofessional considering I have an email stating that I have a reservation as well as a phone call from Buca's confirming the reservation. I am very disappointed.
This was my first time at this location and I arrived shortly after 6:00 on a Monday evening. Stood at the hostess station for ten minutes before anyone said anything to me. 2 employees saw me standing there and walked in another direction.
When I finally was seated the waiter SAT NEXT TO ME! Not cool.
This was our first time trying their pizza. While the pizza we had tasted really good, it was way overpriced for what we got. It was just my wife and myself and the menu said a small would serve 2 to 3 and a large would serve up to 5. We are both pizza eaters and decided to get the large so we would have some to take home. I was really surprised when the $29 pizza we ordered (we did add sausage to our pepperoni pizza) to see how small it was. If it wasn't for the fact that my wife found the pepperoni to be too spicy, we would have never had 2 pieces to many. Way too expensive for the amount of pizza we got and no way would a large serve up to 5. It barely filled the 2 of us. We will be going somewhere else for pizza in the future.
They were packed and squeezed us in last minute in the Southridge mall . We sat in the bar and the bartender Gabi was outstanding and went above and beyond to keep us happy and taken care of. The food was great as always! Cannot wait to go back. Also the vice president of the restaurant was there. She was fabulous and our kids loved her. All around great experience. Thank you!
They ran out of their "Sofia Vergara" promotional meat ball dish on a Saturday night and came to give us the good news 10 minutes after they had taken the order ( very disappointing particularly to the 6 kids that were counting on it and the only option they offered for the inconvenience was a whispered apology and spaghetti with meat sauce instead ; we asked for a protein like grilled chicken instead offering to pay the extra money for the meat substitution, but they were not willing to do it. The other dishes were ok , but nothing outstanding or great to mention ( just average; btw , the calamari appetizer was super greasy and the calamari were really tiny). I am not sure I will revisit. The only cool thing and fun to mention is the black and white wall art memorabilia. I am not sure I will revisit ( perhaps if I will be really starving and with no hope to find a table at Olive Garden...)
Buca's is always our choice when someone asks "hmm, where should we go". We have never been disappointed in the food or service. Last Christmas, our family really mixed it up from the traditional food we have every year, to a variety of pans of pasta, salad and bread from Buca's. Not only did it free up a lot of time to spend where it really mattered, with the family, but it was delicious!
The garlic bread was horrible, much to our surprise! It tasted rancid or something. We asked our server, then the manager, about it and were told how it was made but it still tasted bad even knowing how it was different from most. They did not offer to substitute anything instead or to comp the cost. We requested plain french bread, which also had a bad taste to it. The rest of our food was good.
It was my 60th birthday and they advertise themselves as The Birthday Restaurant, well they forgot that little detail on this visit. Our server was miserable, our food was cold, and the entire experience was tragic and we all left very disappointed, didn't even get sung to while other birthday parties in the restaurant were being serenaded. Contacted the restaurant and their corporate office several times with absolutely NO RESPONSE or apology. So I would recommend that your NEVER EVER EVER dine at Buca di Beppo - Greenfield, WI. We have had a great experience at the chef's table in Wheeling and enjoyed a dining experience in the Milwaukee location - but Greenfield...NOT SO MUCH!!!!!
Had a large group and we sat at the "Pope's table" which was perfect! Food was good and service was great. Loved the bruschetta served in a very large martini glass. Ordered two appetizers, and the smaller portion size of two pasta dishes, lemon chicken and eggplant parm for seven people and had plenty of leftovers.
I held a retirement party for a cherished coworker at Buca's. Our Server was awesome, the food was awesome, and one of the Partners came by our table to make sure everything was fine. I have received multiple compliments from everyone who attended. Thank You Buca's for making me look good! And for a wonderful evening.
It was New Year's Eve dinner. We had a party of 10 people. We were seated 40mins later than our reservation. Understood that since it was New Year's Eve. Once seated we ordered appetizers which the waitress had to come back and tell us they were out of. Our refill drinks were not kept up with. We did not get the complementary bread at our tables. The waitress did comp us with free spaghetti and meat sauce due to the situation with the sold out apps. But the lack of attention to our table was most noticeable by our party and thus score is low on service.
We sat next to an open space where the cold air was blowing from the door to the outside, right into our table making us cold...and our food cold. Maybe they need to have people enter through the mall? There were so many people waiting to come in and be seated, they kept the door to the outside opened a lot.
Our waiter was awful. We had to ask multiple times for our drinks. He was rude. At the end when we were paying our bill, the total was right $144 total, we gave him our credit card and when we got the credit card slip to sign, the total was $236...he gave himself a $70 tip. when my husband pointed it out, he wasn't apologetic at all...what if we hadn't looked/double checked? It was a busy night and I'm wondering how many other people he swindled who just trusted he'd to the right thing?
Good food and service, but we figure the pricing is at least twice as much as what you would spend in a restaurant where food is ordered for each person individually. Here, you order a bunch of large-size items for the table and everyone shares. The items are overpriced. If anything, you would think you could save money (buying/cooking in bulk) but I guess you are paying for the uniqueness of dining family-style.
I took my sixteen years old and couple of weeks ago. She is a hard person to impress. After her first experience with the Buca bruschetta, she is hooked. Food is really good, with large portions. My family of three eats the small size, with a little left over at the end. Sure isn't an Olive Garden, and that's a good thing!
Bar was TOTALLY out of Miller products. Asked the bar tender if he had a drink menu/specials -His response was "no-just whatever you want". My friend ordered a Seagrams and coke. When he went to order a 2nd-they were out of Seagrams ! When we were seated at our table (30 minutes past our reservation time) we discovered that they DO have a drink menu! Food was ok. Server had to be reminded 3 times that we were celebrating a birthday-she had already brought the check before they sang Happy Birthday. With a bar bill of $65 and a food bill of $265-I was not happy with my visit!
I've been to this Buca's a lot in the past and normally love the ambiance but this time we were seated on the mall side where it is wide open to the mall and people walk by and look at you while you eat, felt like a food court setting...I wasn't thrilled with this table so I asked right when we got there if we could get another table inside the restaurant more not next to the open mall side and was told no other tables were open but in the kitchen! This was at 6pm it was not busy yet, bar was empty, I saw tons of other open tables for 4 people and was still told no. Next time I book I will request not to be seated in this section...just took away from the Buca's experience if you ask me.
This was our first time visiting this restaurant. Overall it was a very disappointing experience. We didn't have a very good waiter who knew we were there to celebrate an 18th birthday and did nothing special for it. The restaurant ran out of sangria and our waiter Henry kept claiming things weren't his fault that" there's a lot of ineptness going on " at that restaurant, but again not his fault. Our hot spinach salad came ice cold and our waiter did nothing about it. Two out of the three main dishes that we ordered were not very good, (very dry chicken) and to top off the evening they ran out of the Tarimasu that we wanted for dessert! We were even lucky enough to hear another waiter berate a staff member within our and several other diners earshot.
