I noticed some variability in the food. I've eaten there often enough to have had a few repeats. Getting a meal that leaves me longing to return and the finding the second helping is not as memorable has happened twice. Granted the second trip was still delicious, it just didn't leaving the same craving. I am familiar repeated excellence as... More

The food here is absolutely wonderful. Portions are huge, my husband and I usually end up sharing a meal and each getting a salad. Only thing I wish they would change (especially for big parties and on holidays, New Years Eve, etc) is by accepting reservations.

I went here for my 30th birthday and was not disappointed! The food was great! We had the lamb and steak, which I think was a 'daily special', very good! They also bring out a really good bread and dip as an appetizer. Great atmosphere as well. Only issue is that the restaurant overall is a bit dark, could use... More

We have enjoyed going to Aqua Terra for years. They have greatly expanded the restaurant over the years. Still very quaint. The food is always tasty. Go more for a special lunch out these days.

The Mister and I always enjoy a visit to Aqua Terra. Though a tad pricey for Buford, we always get excellent service and fabulous cocktails. Every once in a while, an entree isn't absolutely perfect, but if you get the creamed corn (not on the menu, but ask for it!), you won't care if your steak isn't quite as good... More

What took me so long to try this restaurant? This is a gem in downtown Buford. Delicious food, beautifully presented, in an atmosphere that's relaxing and not at all stuffy. I'll be back for sure.

This is a quality place in the burbs. This place is on par with Buckhead. The food is good and the service is just as good. Love this hidden gem!

Love the food and chef is always willing to accommodate my wife who is vegetarian. It is a bit pricey but when you are taking your special person it is... More

Went after the ice storm and everyone had cabin fever as all restaurants were booked, so tried this one since they don't take reservations, and we could wait for a table. This night was packed with a very energetic young crowd, the wait was over an hour so we figured it had to be good. After working our way to... More
