Perfect Anniversary Dinner!

My husband and I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversay here and I can't say enough good things about this place. The ambience was perfect and our server was attentive and friendly. We both had filet mignon and it was absolutely delicious. Can't wait to go back!

This was our third visit and I can't wait for the fourth. The scallop dish is one of the best dishes around. Four plump perfectly cooked scallops over a bed of spinach, orecchiette pasta and a mushroom truffle cream sauce that will have you licking the plate. The salads are fresh and large enough to share. We shared a cheese... More

My first time there determined that it definitely will not be my last. We had an appetizer, both had entrees and we split desert. Our dishes were prepared perfectly. The potato eggrolls, steak, scallops on pasta, and key lime tart made our day. I can't wait to try our next experience at Aqua Terra.

I take a friend for her birthday every year and it is such a treat. Their salads and sandwiches are tasty and unique. Today we both had sandwiches---I had the burger and it was wonderful with guacamole topping on ciabatta roll. The island salad side is a refreshing accompaniment too. We shared the chocolate truffle cake for dessert---rich and delicious!... More

This American bistro is, in my opinion, the best restaurant in Buford, hands down. We have ben going here since 2000, and it has never failed to live up to our high expectations. Food is always very good, and service is professional, and friendly.

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 the tasty shrimp and grits.... 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
