Everyday better

I choose the Bufalo Grill restaurtant to celebrate my wife´s birthday and the option was great. The meal was so good, slightly different presentation of the dish tan the last time I ate here. Next time I will try the New York Steak. 100% recommended it.

Since there are so many rave reviews (on which we based our decision to try this place) perhaps we hit a bad night. We were the only customers throughout our meal and the server was very good although the owner/manager ignored us. We were given a complimentary cheese bread and sausage starter - nice gesture but greasy and the sausage... More

I am honestly shocked there are no bad reviews for this place. We made a mistake of walking in tonight because we stayed at a nearby hotel and there were not many choices within walking distance. We had fried calamari which was breaded in Panko so all you tasted was the heavy breading and a gummy,thin strip of calamari served... More

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... More

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!

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....... More

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... More

We visited Bufalo Grill at the recommendation of a friend. It was really amazing. We had fried buffalo mozzarella which was some of the best I have ever had. My daughter had a buffalo burger which she claims is her favorite burger ever. Buffalo isn't the only thing on the menu. I had pork chops that I enjoyed. The atmosphere... More

Just one week ago I had a business meeting close to San Ana in San Jose and we tried to find a quiet place for lunch and talk so we choose a small restaurant called Buffalo Grill. I never supposed that in this place they cook and sell buffalo meat we were a little worried because it was the first... More
