What a great restaurant!! Great food -- amazing service -- We celebrated my parent's 50th wedding anniversary and EVERYONE was so kind; our server, manager, chef, piano player, and owner!!! There was food for all tastes, my teenage boys couldn't stop talking about the steak! We will definitely be back!

The paper table covers did
The paper table covers did not represent $32 entrees. Linen would have been preferred.

The food was very good, from
The food was very good, from the soups to the entrees. I had the scallops, and although it was a small serving, the taste was rich and filling. The filet was exceptional! The bread they served was marginal, but it was served with some interesting whipped butters. Overall the food and ambiance made the evening. The service was a bit slow, and it seemed as if our waiter was a bit overwhelmed and the table of all ladies (that would have been my table) was the the table that received the least amount of attentiveness.

A new discovery for us. Great!!
Incredible food experience. Our second time there in 30 days. Took friends and out of town guests both times. That's 8 meals, and 100 % A+ delivery. I bad the opportunity to speak with the chef. He is passionate about purchasing and delivering quality. Great blend of seafood, beef, lamb, and interesting specials. Just discovered Adams this month.....We'll be back. Save room for dessert.

Great place. They had issues
Great place. They had issues with their wine list. Advertised a brand as a "Reserve" for $129/bottle and what came to our table was not reserve and when I checked it out on my iphone, the retail price was around $20/bottle. Watch out for this. They really need to review what they are getting in from their wine supplier and fix their menu. This was really a great place though and I would go back. And with "fine" dining, you'd really like to see the proper wine glass for the wine you select. OK, maybe I am a wine snob. LOL

Great piano bar in downtown
Great piano bar in downtown Buford. Power went out twice only for a brief second, but we had a great time. Food was fantastic.

Hip atmosphere, great menu...
Great atmosphere, great menu... Adam's is an amazing place to get an intown dining experience while outside the Perinter...Very hip atmosphere where you can have a romantic dinner for two or a gathering of friends to enjoy the lively piano bar...A great experience everytime...

I took my wife here for her birthday. The food was amazing. Wait staff was very knowledgeable. Our wait time was average for a fine dining restaurant. I had the Filet, cooked perfectly and full of flavor. She had the salmon and loved it. I would definitely recommend.

I had a special request for flowers on the table when making my reservation and it was executed perfectly!
5/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great first visit
Recently moved to the area. Love the casual but fine dining scene. Adams was a great choice. Great service. Great food. We plan to return to experience the Speakeasy.
5/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
First, not last!
I specifically chose to fete my guest for his birthday because of the reservations accepted policy, not found in many restaurants these days.
My 8 oz. filet was the best beef I've had in ages though I did feel it was salt seasoned a bit on the heavy side. The spicy shrimp dish served my guest was wonderful as well.
The only negatvie to the restaurant is the piano playing is too loud and interferes with conversation despite the fact we were seated far from the piano, requested when asked by the hostess as to our choice of seating.
5/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
A beautiful evening with great food and drinks at the bar with terrific service, listening to a wonderful piano player. As if this weren't good enough, we finished the evening at the Speakeasy downstairs listening and dancing the night away with one of the best bands I've ever heard!! Could not have been a better experience!!!
5/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome as usual!
A wonderful mid-town restaurant located in downtown Buford. The food is always good and the entertainment is fun.
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We traveled 60 miles to our favorite restaurant. Adam, the owner, was his special great self. Hicham, our favorite chef, prepared an exquisite tenderloin sans sauces. He vowed it would be juicy throughout, and it was down to the last morsel! Tender and flavorful, there are few times you will find this steak to be so wonderful - but Hicham does it daily.
We can't drive over that often, but when we do, we find the finest restaurant in Georgia, if not the entire southeast. As we left a half full and vibrant Adam's, we passed the totally empty Sperata, a place that is overpriced and over lauded. Boy, are the critics confused on this.
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Music setting and atmosphere , they had it all in a small town package , very nice!
6/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutely fabulous food, Parmesan crusted filet mignon melts in your mouth it's so good. Pianist was wonderful kept audience engaged (but not at all overbearing) and took song request. Mixed up the style, some romantic music, some 70's 80's 90's mixes, etc. you can sit at the piano to enjoy the music and drink. We have told all our friends about it and will return :)
6/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall great experience
My wife and I had a great time at Adams. Food, drinks, music and staff. All was great!
Just a couple of things. The hostess did not know downstairs was closed but still took us down for tapas. A nice bartender took us back up and apologized. No big deal but the hostess should have known. Jessica our server was great but please set her up (and Adam's) for success. She is eager to give great service but lacks training on opening wine and clearing tables. Again no big deal but for us in the industry we felt bad for her. Surprised to see that no manager ever stopped by to check on guests. Again a great experience and we will be back soon!!
PS: Good to see a Chef with a toque on. Says a lot about his standards!
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our experience was great - seating was punctual, food offerings plentiful, those ordered delicious. Wait staff knowledgeable and conscientious. Great time, we'll be back.
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great time, recommend
I've always gone to other restaurants in the vicinity as Adam's was a late addition to the Buford main street scene. In looking for a spot for an anniversary dinner, I took a look at the menu and saw some items my wife would enjoy so I booked it. Wednesday is not a night you would need a reservation but they greeted me and sat us at a pre-arranged table including the flowers I ordered. We had great service, great food, seafood platter and the pork tenderloin, good starter with the Crab Cakes, and good desserts with the Creme Brulee and the chocolate mousse. The chef and owner, Adam, there on his night off, came by to check on things, saw him assisting in the kitchen, and later came by to meet us.
We enjoyed the full dinner experience.

We took a group of 6 to Adams to celebrate Father's Day and absolutely loved it! Our waiter was very knowledgable and the food was wonderful. I would definitely recommend the she-crab soup and filet. The atmosphere was nice and the pianist was very good. He played a wide range of music. It is not a quiet restaurant but the noise level was comfortable and we were still able to carry on a conversation without screaming at each other. We will definitely be back!
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I had our 11th Anniversary dinner at Adams on 7/5. Food and Service was outstanding and the piano player was excellent. I had the gorgonzola crusted fillet and my wife had the scallops. Awesome food! I had ordered flowers and the restaurant had them on the table for us when we arrived. It was a very enjoyable evening. We will definitely return for our next special occation. Thanks Adams for a memorable night!

Great Neighborhood Find
Been trying to find some new restaurants to try and we were so glad to find Adams. Our waitress was very sweet, very knowledgeable and gave us excellent service. The ambiance was awesome, we loved the piano player, he played great mix of music that made the restaurant upbeat & a fun place to hang out with friends, but he was not so overpowering that you couldn't talk. Our food was excellent! There were 5 of us dining that night and everyone of us enjoyed our meal, they were all excellent! The food was fresh, very well prepared and the menu had something for everyone. Overall Adams was excellent and we would definitely go back!

Love Love Love this place
From the moment we walked in it was an extraordinary experience. Jess, our server was awesome. The piano guy was engaging and awesome. The chief came out and made a "off menu" dinner suggestion and it was amazing.

Birthday Celebration 7-23-2013 7:30
This was our first visit, and we dined with another couple. Three of us ordered the Gorgonzola Crusted Filet. One person ordered the NY Strip Oscar from the Restaurant Week menu. All if us thought our meals were delicious and well prepared. My husband and I shared the escargot in puff pastry...yummy! Our friends shared the fried green tomatoes appetizer and said that it was also very good. My only complaint is that our server was not particularly attentive...either to us or to detail. Our share of the bill for the escargot, two regularly priced entrees, two glasses of tea, and one Caesar salad was $83.00. Despite the less-than-stellar service, we still left a 20 percent tip. We will definitely return, but not during Restaurant Week.

Wonderful dining of fresh flavors
Piano bar, great for adult dining. Perfect little gem in the city of Buford.
Wonderful service!!! Intimate little restaurant that caters to an perfect date night.
Upscale dining with a wonderful menu of fresh and vibrant flavors.
Their dishes are fresh, healthy and flavorful, which is difficult to find here in Georgia.
Coming from California, we missed this type of dining experience and food.
If it had not been for restaurant week, we would have not known about this little gem.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gwinnett Resturant Week choice....
waiter patiently explained the 3 course selections to us and handled our large 8 count table very well. Only a slight delay in some bar drink orders and mix up btw knowing 3 separate white wine glasses arriving at the same time, but no biggie w/ our gang!
Enjoyed the Rest. Week menu choices...although a non seafood choice would have been excellent!! as the steak Oscar of course had crab, as well as the Monk Fish offered. Landlubbers such as myself stuck to apps, salads and dessert for our 3 course choices..also had a fabulous time ending our Bday din din evening crowding around the excellent piano player and singing along to many songs for 30 mins or so...kind of him to handle our request and large audience! :)

Great Restaurant In Buford!
We had a great experience at Adams restaurant from the moment we walked in the door. I am a picky eater but I must say the food and service was 5 star. The waiter staff was prompt and they went overboard to make us feel comfortable. The lobster and salad was excellent. If you are looking for excellent food, prompt service, in a wonderful atmosphere please check out Adams restaurant. We will be returning to this restaurant.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Last minute choice and we had a great experience. The menu is great, everything we had was amazing. Our service was OUTSTANDING! This is not a particularly kid friendly place, but we had our 2 daughters with us for a family event and the staff was incredibly accomidating with them. The appetizers, meals and desserts were all excellent! We will be going back!

Salty Risotto, Piano too loud.
First I want to say all the things I liked about the restaurant. The staff was really nice and friendly. The food was delicious. I had the trout with risotto and green beans. The cream brûlée desert was a generous portion and perfect. I love the decor. The paintings on the walls are beautiful. However, we went on a night with a piano player. He was an excellent musician but the music was so loud we couldn't hear each other talk. By the end of the night I had a headache. The risotto was too salty. The food took an hour to come out of the kitchen. I would go back again. I'd give it one more try but not on a piano night. This place has the potential to give it's patrons a wonderful experience with a few little changes.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our third visit to Adam's - and each time the food has been very high quality, prepared perfectly, and the service has been attentive, courteous and knowledgeable. We have taken friends here and recommended to friends and family, and all have been equally pleased. We will be back for a 4th visit.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
What A Great Place
Went back for a second time and it was just as great as the first time. The service is very good. Server was friendly and very attentive without overdoing it. Got a table by the piano and that was definitely the right choice. The music was really good and the piano man had us all singing.
The food was better than expected and plenty of it. Had their creme Creme Brulee for dessert and it was the best I've ever had.
If you want a fun evening with great food and service, try Adam's. I don't think you'll be sorry.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Adams was great. We heard from a friend that they had heard it was good. I took my wife for our anniversary and the staff went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our dinner. The food, service and atmosphere were all fantastic. We will certainly return.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Surprisingly fun dinner
My wife and I had a wonderful time on Friday night. I had been wanting to check it out for a while but it was a long drive from Lawrenceville after a long day at work. But it was excellent and I will definitely come back. Great food, great service and the fun music was better than I expected.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Don't listen to ANY negative reviews of this place, it is a great place to dine and have a great time with someone special.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I really enjoyed this dinning experience. The food was delicious and the staff was freindly and attentive. We went too early to enjoy much of the piano player.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food, atmosphere, and most importantly service were all amazing. Knowledgeable wait staff who made great recommendations. Not at all pushy or hovering and great overall vibe to the place.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
There is nothing negative about this restaurant, the food was outstanding, the service was great, the wine list was perfect and even the owner came by our table more than once to make sure everything was perfect and it was. I would recommend this place to all of my friends, I will make this restaurant a regular.

A return visit for us, we love this place. We both enjoyed the Gargonzola Filet after starting with the Fried Green Tomatoes and a Wedge salad. Always great food and good service.
