Come with some money in your pocket!

The place has great food. Everything taste good. We have been there a couple of times. Not a fan of the hamburger as it is just meat made into a patty. The highlight of their burger is the things that you put on it. The burger should be the highlight. They are pricey. My wife and I paid $60 for... read more

Not sure why I ordered a seafood salad at a restaurant with Bufalo in the name, but was pretty disappointed with my seafood salad. Had various cooked seafood (shrimp, fish, calamari, mussels) on top of a bed of lettuce, drenched with an overly salty brown sauce that really made the salad unpleasant to look at and eat. The seafood was... More

Had to stay a few nights at Studio Hotel, which is next to NOTHING! So, right down the street was Bufalo Grill so I went in. The owner spoke excellent English which was comfortable for me, since my Spanish is awful. I think he said he was from Argentina and landed in CR. They have a limited menu - very... More

We visited Buffalo Grill twice in a week. It was awesome. Loved the New York Strip and so did my children. Looking forward to returning. More people need to know about 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 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.

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!
