Quick seating on a Sunday evening. Jenny was very helpful in describing the dishes. The mushroom and goat cheese soup is amazing. I could have had seconds. I ordered halibut and truffle fries. They were perfect. Highly recommend this gem of a restaurant in historic...Buford.More

All 4 meals were delicious! Red sangria was amazing. The halibut was perfectly cooked. I'd recommend making a reservation first.

Absolutely delicious. Great service from Jenny! The food was so good and came out so timely that I didn't snap any pics. I had the char grilled steak and my husband had the duck. We started with the bacon wrapped dates- delicious. We will definitely...come back to this restaurant, great dining experience.More

This place is very nice inside. The food is amazing, the service is good and the prices are incredible. You would be hard pressed to find a meal that tastes this good for the price.

Based on recommendations from friends and looking for a new place to try, Aqua Terra Bistro got the nod. We had a reservation for our Saturday night dinner and I would recommend a reservation based on the number of people who were on the sidewalk...waiting. Cameron was our server and did an excellent job. The dinner of choice was the filet, which included garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. The food was excellent and the positive atmosphere of the restaurant will definitely make for an encore performance. Looking at the menu, there are several options and based on our meals, I would say they don’t put it on the menu up unless it is excellent. Based on an excellent meal and great service, the TravelGuy recommends the Aqua Terra Bistro in Buford and look onward to an encore opportunity.More

The menu was very limited, I had the scallops and my wife had the halibut. They were both very good. The prices were high, but not excessive. Nice decor in this restaurant.

We had our son's rehearsal dinner in the newly redecorated Room 99 and we couldn't be happier with how things went. We opted for a dinner buffet and the food was absolutely delicious! The 3 items I got the most positive feedback from my guests...were the salmon, the macaroni and cheese, and the peach bread pudding. The staff was friendly, courteous, and efficient. The space was clean and tastefully decorated. I like the privacy and convenience of the location. I would definitely recommend!More

Our first visit to Aqua Terra. Surprisingly varied menu, and all of our ordered items came in a timely manner, hot and well presented, appetizers as well as entrees included. Service (Kelsey) was amazing too. We were here for two hours and the time flew-by.More

Having eaten here on several occasions, I was a little disappointed in a recent visit. The lobster bisque while delicious has NO lobster in it. But more disappointing is the crab sandwich. The crab portion of the sandwich is wafer thin, no seasoning and charred...black; I should have sent it back.More
