Aqua Blue's Affordable Luxury


Aqua blue debuted on the Roswell dining scene over 13 years ago, bringing chef-driven, global cuisine to Atlanta’s northern suburbs. Long-time chef de cuisine Kien Sam joined co-founder John C. Metz, Jr. as an operating partner in 2013, leading updates to the menu, bar and private dining.  From steaks and chops to deliciously prepared seafood and premium sushi, the restaurant impresses with variety and the freshest, seasonal ingredients available.   In addition to adding weekday lunch service last year, Sam has focused on fresh seafood and sushi prepared daily, along with hand-cut steaks cooked to perfection. “Our guests have come to expect affordable luxury when dining with us,” said Metz. “A quality meal, extraordinary service and an inviting atmosphere – we make sure they consistently receive all of these elements when dining at Aqua blue.”


To complement the cuisine, the restaurant boasts an extensive, global wine list with wines offered by the bottle and glass, as well as selections of “endangered species,” limited releases or vintages that are no longer available. Traditional cocktails, along with a selection of martinis and sake, await from the bar.

There's always something special going on at Aqua blue.  Each Sunday, any bottle of wine in the house is available for half price. Tuesdays bring $1 nigiri and sashimi, $5 large sake and $3 Japanese beers. Thursday is Ladies Night with $5 specialty cocktails and $5 glasses of wine all day.

“The overwhelming support of our loyal diners and friends has allowed us to serve our affordable and unique neighborhood dining experience for over 13 years now, and we plan to continue to surprise and delight them for many years to come,” said Sam.

In addition to an unforgettable dining experience, Aqua blue is focused on being the best event and special venue for parties and gatherings in the Roswell and Alpharetta neighborhoods. The restaurant's banquet facilities, which offers a beautiful setting of cascading curtain walls, rich bamboo floors and soaring ceilings, can hold up to 300 guests. The updated patio, with colorful landscaping and heaters for the chilly months, is perfect for large parties any time of year. The former sushi bar is now a wine room for intimate gatherings or larger parties.

Aqua blue is located at 1564 Holcomb Bridge Road in Roswell. The restaurant serves lunch Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and dinner daily from 4 to 10 p.m. For more information, call 770-643-8886 or visit
