“"Another Great Meal With A Great New Waitress"”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Again, recently had the pleasure of enjoying a "Last Supper" of all of my favorite delicasies
at my all time favorite restaurant - Bufalo Grill & Market in Santa Ana. This particular dinner
was a very special one since I was facing a very serious and lengthy surgery at Cima Hospital
the next day and had been told that for two months following I would be kept on a very
special and very boring diet plan. In addition to this wonderful and tasty dinner, we were
thrilled to meet a new addition to their dining staff, Kathea. She took wonderful care of us
throughout the meal, speaks perfect English and is indeed a credit to the Bufalo staff. Just
can't wait until I can start eating "Real Food" again at my favorite dining spot.

“Carpaccio to die for”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Good service, great idea. Glad to have access to buffalo mozarella, Carpaccio was excellent. burgers well made, cooked to perfection. Only downside...price! I know Costa Rica is extremely expensive these days, and it´s a novelty meat, but I believe they could revise the pricing structure. also, get a wine list and offer full bottles!

“Water buffalo is good, but stay away from the sea food”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Value for the colon is not one of the triangle that this restaurant tries to achieve.. They have a nice little restaurant and good wait staff... The beefalo is good and of good quality. We had tried it before, but be prepared to pay $25-$30 for a basic meal.... Not value..

$13 for a small plate of bufalo meat tartar.... Really? We tried the squid rings that were obviously old, had a very heavy breading and you received all 12 of them for $13.... over a dollar a ring and these were not giant squid... Hard to imagine a restaurant that is trying to do it right finding a way to justify the prices.. This and two glasses of wine for $40...

“New Decor - But Still Gourmet Service & Food”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We have been back here now three times since they have re-decorated this already beautiful
restaurant with undoubtedly the best service and food in the entire Santa Ana area. Tonight
we chose it to celebrate the American "Mother's Day" holiday. We are now almost "true Costa
Rican's having lived here for five wonderful years in this beautiful Country but still choose to
do the "Mother's Day" thing on the May 11th date where they celebrate it in the U.S. Just
want to mention that while the food is still the very best, and the new decor is exquisite, there
is a wonderful waitress they employ here now, Giselle, who could not be nicer or more
attentive. Her English is more than sufficient and tonight she even remembered the exact
same appetizer that I told her was my favorite, the last time I dined here. Luis and his
family have truly put every effort into making this a very beautiful and special place to dine
and I certainly encourage anyone staying or working in this area, or people staying at the
Studio One Hotel next door, to take the opportunity to dine in this fine gourmet restaurant
because, for sure, they will not be disappointed and will be anxious to come again and again.
