Always pleased with the food and service at this restaurant. My wife ordered the the crusted trout and I had the salmon. Both entrees were excellent choices and values. Service was attentive also. Would recommend it.

Excellent value with their coupon (up to $20.00 off) in the SJ Mercury circular "The Eye". Large menu selection, nice size portions, very attentive service.

By The Bucket is one of the Gems of Santa Clara. This restaurant serves very good Seafood and Steaks. The environment is formal dining with Bread in a basket and cloth napkins. Over all a good place for a first date to impress your girl. I ordered the half rack of lamb and it was delicious. My Date had the... More

We quit going to By The Bucket because when you order Veal Parmigianino you get mashed potatoes instead of spaghetti. If you want spaghetti you have to pay extra. I've never had this dish served with mashed potatoes. That's not the way an authentic Italian restaurant does things.

Latest visit to BTB was another success. Good Italian pastas and sauces, tasty salads, decent appetizers, are served along with decent wines. Fresh baked breads, spreads, add to the experience. The fired ravioli appetizer is terrific. Ambiance is comfortable, but not extravagent. Service is friendly and knowledgable. Meal pacing is a bit on the slow side during busy periods (it... More

When we want clams or mussels by the bucket this place is so good!!! The broth is perfect. Service is good. Salads before hand and ordering some garlic bread to go with - just perfect. Full bar on site. Parking is on the lot; it sometimes can get busy here so make reservations especially for the week-ends. Service is friendly... More

I was visiting from out of town and friends had no idea where to go to dinner. We were looking for predictable and found By-Th'-Bucket online. It was good. Cheap wine by the glass kept my host happy, the salad was a salad, and the plate of pasta was appropriately huge given prices were Bay Area average--kind of high. Our... More

Great options for seafood and pasta. We've eaten here several times and never had a bad meal. Make sure you save room for the Mud Pie - definitely big enough to share!

We went down to By The Bucket right after work on a Friday, with a 545pm reservation. By The Bucket advertises with a buy one get one free coupon in the Thursday eye section of the San Jose Mercury News, good 3-6pm for 7 days. Getting here is no easy task on a Friday, as seemingly the whole Silicon Valley... More

Great food.. My family has been going there for years. Try to go early because there always seems to be a long wait to get in. We like it so much that we give people gift cards if they are having a special occasion or as a thank you. It is a loud spot so I say more of a... More
