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

Loved this place...not a huge menu but the food was excellent. And...then you get to buy raw buffalo meat to take home! Bought some ground Buffalo (which is much better than the beef here) and some ribs which were a little greasy but the taste!!! YUM. This is a good place to go.

I'm not a meat lover so this review may be bias. My bf is however a meat lover and he really enjoyed this place. The service is great and the dishes are well prepared, fresh and delicious. I have no complaints.

We had the opportunity to dine here in December 2012. I was a little hesitant about ordering the Buffalo as I have had Bison before and it has a flavor while not strong, it is distinctive. Two of us had the Buffalo Burgers with the mozzarella in the middle, and the other two in the group had the Buffalo Steaks,... More

I had the Buffalo Burger. The patty had Buffalo Mozzarella in the middle. It was truly amazing. This will be a must visit every time I am in town. I could tell that the Server (Maybe owner/manager?) really cared about the restaurant and wanted us to have a good meal.
