Hands Down Best Fine Dining in Buford

My wife and I had dinner here Monday evening. Over the last 4 years we have dined at the best fine dining restaurants in Buford and Flowery Branch and this is the best meal we have enjoyed. The bread with the accompaniment tomatoes and basalmic is excellent! The pork tacos were very good along with... read more

I take a lot of business clients here. I also meet my wife here for lunch. We both enjoy the atmosphere, the little downtown Buford area (small town feel) and the great service we always receive. The food is always good. Cosistent. I usually order the salad, crab cakes, and the salmon , scallops or the pene pasta. Not at... More

Nice atmosphere in cute location. Mid-upscale place. Scallops were quite good, rest of the food was good but not great. It is next to another cute restaurant whose name I forget. I enjoy non-chain restaurants like these so much more than mid-upscale chain restaurants.

Food was DISGUSTING. Left barely touched. Won't be back. We went hoping for something great since we live nearby. My husband said his food smelled like urine. Seriously. We really looked forward to going. We didn't complain to management - we just let and decided to never go back.

My wife and I visited on June 3 for our anniversary. We had the crab & avocado appetizer (bland, with too much mayo/filler) and the potato eggroll -- good with a delicious spicy sauce, but only lukewarm from the kitchen. My steak was thin and tough, though properly cooked. Not the quality of meat one would expect for $27. My... More

Outstanding service and delicious fare! The four of us had varied dinners; from scallops to beefsteak to pork loin and all of it was amazing. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Love going to the bar, having drinks and ordering appetizers or dinner. Great bar staff and wait staff. Limited menu (intended) but it never fails to be amazing! Menu changes a few times a year depending on the season. Great for intimate dinners or large parties.

We have dined at this restaurant twice, and will be back again when we are in the area. It is a cute restaurant on Main Street in Buford. The staff is always very helpful and friendly. The food was very good...portions were very generous as we could not finish ours. The dip for the bread that they sell is amazing... More

This review is long overdue. I am an event planner for my company with some hard-to-please diners. We were staying at Lake Lanier and wanted to find a nice restaurant for an evening out. With being from out of town and going only on the recommendation of the resort and online reviews I took a chance. It paid off in... More
