Had yet another amazing dinner at one of our favorite local date spots! Started off with an Aviation gin martini and crab cakes that had a great red onion and pepper slaw. The halibut with risotto was savory, and the veal on arugula was filling while also being light. Wine pairings were on point, and the peanut butter pie was a perfe ... read more

We were served by Kelsie and Kelsie , who no doubt got sick of all the surprised responses to their names. The girls were very sweet and attentive, and brought us our meals promptly. The food was delicious! I’ve seen a lot of the reviews mention the bread dipping sauce, and they are absolutely correct. It is phenomenal. It was only ... read more

Had not been to AT in YEARS.  My main memories were (1) I thought it overpriced and (2) the bread dip was terrific.  Well, my memory was half right.

The Bread Dip is really that good.

Aqua Terra is the best kept secret in Buford GA . The filet mignon was mouth watering, tender, overall great taste- no steak sauce needed. Everything here is delicious from the bread to the signature dipping sauce to.every last bite. We will definitely be coming back.

Pecan crusted salmon is the best salmon I have ever eaten. A smorgasbord of other items to share: Calamari, bacon covered dates, wedge salad, short ribs, and unique cocktails were also delightful.

Simply put, this is the best restaurant in the entire area. Everything is exquisitely prepared and the most delicious thing you've ever put in your mouth down to the bread and dressing. The shrimp and grits is the best I've ever had.

Aqua Terra NEVER disappoints & we eat there frequently! I recommend to take a chance on the special of the day even if it sounds a bit odd or too many foods mixed together. It won’t be! Reservations are to just call 25 mins in advance plus they have a bar area if you only want to sip on an interesting cocktail. Their service is top n ... read more

Very nice atmosphere. We always order the Lobster Bisque. The Korean Ribs are very full of flavor and we have never ordered one of the Chef's Specials and not loved it!

I have been to Buford countless times but had not wandered into the old town part much, if at all. We were looking to mix it up for dinner and this place came up.

It was our first time here. Great drinks, food, and service. Everything was fantastic. 4 stars only because the filet mignon was not a tender piece of meat. Too chewy and difficult to cut due to too much connective tissue. We did inform our server.

Dinner and drinks with my wife. We split the small plates. Meat & cheese platter was done well.

The service was very fast and friendly. This restaurant is in the quaint downtown area of Buford. The ambience could not have been lovelier.
