Buca di Beppo - Maple Grove Ratings and Reviews
We went with a group of 6 +2 kids in the early afternoon. We had to wait a bit for them to get a server together seeing as how they just opened, but the host was super pleasant and let us know what's happening. My drink, the sparking solerno, was super strong. I don't mind a bang for my buck but it could barely finish it and be able to drive home safely.
The prosciutto stuffed chicken was amazingly crispy and the sauce I just wanted to lick the plate. The baked ziti was meh with all the cheese melted on top masking the super tasty red sauce. The shrimp fettuccine could have used more sauce.
The bruschetta is the absolute perfect starter. I could have eaten the giant serving myself
Manager was very apologetic about an extremely long wait and made it right for our group. They were abnormally busy with prom season and I think it caught them off guard a bit. They made it right with our group but with young kids we would rather have been seated quicker. We would return again as the staff was very professional in a tough situation and I believe they will fix the wait next time around. Can't beat the family atmosphere and value on good food.
Food was very good. Service a little lacking but that may have been because we were there on a Saturday evening that was also a prom night for large groups of teenagers! We were also disappointed that when the server took our leftover food back to the kitchen to box up, she asked us if we also wanted to take the leftover garlic bread home. We said we sure did (we had ordered a large order so we would have some available to eat with our leftovers at home, plus we'd paid for it). When we got home and checked our bag, there was no bread to be found. Quite disappointing. Would be different if we hadn't been charged for it, but really.... Not a huge deal all in all, but still a disappointment.
There were 20 of us for Easter. We didn't pre order. The service was exceptional and they helped us figure out how much of each item to order ( large or small). The good was delicious and the servings were very large!! Wonderful day and we would all do it again!!
The service was ok, the waitress only came around few and far between. She also was very assuming and didn't seem to listen to us, but act on impulse. She spilled on our drinks on the table, but didn't offer to wipe it up or bring us additional napkins so that we could do it. All of our menus were also filthy.
We went to Buca with my parents and kids for a nice get together. We had a great server and some of the food was good, others OK, nothing was bad. Our biggest challenge was the noise level was very loud which is going to happen from time to time, but in the future I would ask for sitting away from big groups if given the opportunity. Either way, its still a great spot and good value.
Ordered the Chicken Marsala. It had a very sweet taste, like sugary sweet...it made the dish disgusting. The chicken itself was very under-seasoned and the mushrooms had a very canned taste. It reminded me of an airplane dish. We also got their trio appetizer; the stuffed mushroom caps were very good but the calamari was tasteless and the fried mozzarella was soggy and room temperature. Finally, the fettuccine alfredo was ok, could use more garlic.
All in all, a waste of $100. They can do better, but with Buca the food seems very inconsistent.
The staff is always welcoming and fun. The food was great. The waiter had good suggestions and ideas for our group regarding portions and options. We were celebrating birthdays, and the celebratory dessert is out of this world! The only complaint is that it's a little warm in the restaurant .
Server was awful maybe came back twice never brought small plates for bread or dinner plates other staff did said he would bring checks 15 minutes later at least that before I asked for a manager to pay them manager only reply was the server is new. And the table next two us was so loud kids on one end doing whatever the wanted parents on the other ignoring the kids.
We east here usually a couple times throughout the month and it's usually good, but I don't know if we went at a bad time or what happened but this time something was wrong. The pasta and pasta sauce was just horrible there was no flavor at all and the chicken was burnt.
Service was incredibly slow, felt as though the server forgot we were there. Server commented at one point that she saw our food in the "window" for us, came back 15 minutes later with the food, and food came cold (or cool pasta that was now hard/rubbery), Very disappointed to spend $108 (without alcohol) for cold food. I did mention it to the server and she asked it I wanted her to re-heat it. I replied no, as we already waited a long time for the food to be served. I walked out saying I doubt I will ever go back. Very disappointed.
I made reservations two months ago for 7:30 pm on a Saturday for 7 adults. We were NOT seated until 8:40. A restaurant should hold and honor a reservation and NOT give your table away to walk-ins. This would NEVER happen at restaurants in downtown Minneapolis. Oh and on top of it we didn't get our dinner until after 10pm and our waitress was crabby. This pregnant mama was NOT happy. Never eating out in burbia again... my family can learn to drive into Minneapolis.
We waited an hour for a reservation I had made. I was seated and ordered the lasagna but they failed to let us know they had run out of lasagna in the kitchen so when my tables food came out they offered "scrambled lasagna"... Terrible. I should have been offered a menu when they found out they ran out of what I ordered.
Food is always good and service is equally good in a fun atmosphere. My only regret is that we ordered Fettuccine Alfredo and it wasn't really hot, it was warm. taste was great but serving temperature left a little to be desired. We'll still go back for more though!
Very disappointed w/having to wait 45 minutes longer than the reserved time we had. The wonderful ceasar salad that we always love, came with no dressing. The wait for our food took way too long. Was not very impressed. Felt they way over booked themselves!! Not sure if we'll return...
As always the food was wonderful. The apple gorgonzola salad is one of my favorites. It was a very busy night being New Year's Eve but the staff was fabulous. Waited about 15 minuets after our reservation time to be seated, I had however anticipated this happening. There was a very large group with about 10 kids seated near us that was quite loud. Once they left it was just the normal hustle and bustle of a busy restaurant.
Worst experience we have ever had there. After being seated nearly 20 minutes late from our reservation, we were told we would have only an hour to eat before the next reservation would arrive. We were greeted by our server within minutes of being seated. We ordered out beverages and meal immediately. 10 minutes later we got our beverages. Another 10 minutes after that we finally got our bread. 40 minutes later our food showed up. 2 of the 4 meals were cold....not cool, but cold. Cheese on the pizza hard cold. We were offered NOTHING for the back up in the kitchen, cold food or lack of service. Our water cups were empty 60% of the time we were there. I understand they were busy, but it's probably one of the busiest nights of the year....PLAN AHEAD AND STAFF ADEQUATELY!
