This place is *super expensive* but the food is really good. I would definitely use this place for special occasions. I attended a very large group dinner in the basement and they provided great service. A small warning to those who like their food separated--your...More

Had a great dinner on our anniversary. The service was great and the food was very good. They dont accept reservations but there was no wait for a table on a Saturday night.

This is a top five restaurant in Gwinnett. It used to be THE place to eat in Gwinnett, I cannot put my finger on what has changed that knocked it out of the top spot, I’m hopeful it climbs up the ladder again.

We have been here several times over the last 12 years, but this time again it was average food, with high prices. So we will not be back anytime soon as there are better restaurants on this street when it comes to price/quality.

Recently had lunch at Aqua Terra in Buford. Lunch was just ok. My husband had a sandwich that was really nothing special. I had the pasta dish with scallops. It was 2 large scallops which had good flavor, but the pasta was not very flavorful...More

My husband and I have eaten at Aqua Terra many times in the past 15 years. We've always had good meals there, but were disappointed last night. Our server had zero personality. When we joked or smiled with her, she kept a straight face and...More
