Very fresh food and nice flavor combinations.

I popped in for a quick dinner of the crab cakes appetizer and watermelon & feta salad. The watermelon salad was first and was absolutely delicious. I'll be making this at home! Very simple combination but the sweet and salty with the vinegar tang was wonderful. The crab cakes were nice and crispy... read more

Had some gorgeous lunches here. The bread and dip that goes with it are to die for. Enjoyed the strawberry, spinach and goats cheese salad. Wish I knew how to recreate it at home, as Georgia is a little far to pop in for a visit. The staff were very nice and it was clean but as a party of... More

My wife and I had the special sandwich of chicken, spinach pesto, ricotta, and a special roll. We both rated it a 5. Tomato/cucumber salad 5, potato salad 5, and strong professional service a 5. The peach and cream dessert was really fantastic too. And at $38 for two with tip for this quality it felt like a bargain. Interesting,... More

Went for dinner with my wife. Our date night. Ordered the Surf and Turf special. Steak was a sirloin and asked for it medium. First steak was done about 1/4 inch and the rest was raw. Sent it back. Second steak was also raw. Right now my stomach is churning pretty bad as I think the shrimp were also raw.... More

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
