AKA Bistro Lincoln
Excellent food and great service.Excellent food and great service. The only complaint is that there are limited entree choices on the menu. Most dishes are meat. They need to add more fish, in particular!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLazy Saturday afternoonA pre-mother's day brunch was excellent. My entire family enjoyed the experience. I would go back and encourage others to made the trip out to Lincoln, MA. It's a lot closer that you think.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMworth the tripomakase sashimi dinner had imaginative dishes like yellowtail topped with sea urchin roe and a think slice of radish. it was pricey, but much less than comparable meals in the city. the level of staffing and service and frequent changes of flatware are also unusual at this price. i just wish they would make it easier to get replenishments of their excellent baguettes.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAKA BISTRO - UNEVEN?Love AKA Bistro.
Consistently delighted by
(1) DELICIOUS FOOD
(2) KNOWLEDGEABLE SERVERS
Even though we ordered (delicious) appetizers, we were STARVING by the time dinner came out - it was a full 70 minutes between app & entrée, and we ordered everything at once, and were among the first to be seated in the restaurant? Food is so good, we didn't want to spoil our appetites by filling up on extra bread.
TIMING definitely off the night we went - great waiter, but delay in getting our meals seemed out-of-the-ordinary & really felt draining -- not to be dramatic, but lack of communication was the crux of it. Waiter could have just helped set expectations WHILE we waited.
Will return - hope for better timing next time4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBig restaurant in small town!We've had several good meals here both sashimi and French. Looking forward to trying brunch in the near future.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood findLoved eating sushi at the bar, our waiter was great, the apps were fantastic and we loved all the sushi courses. One comment my husband made, is that they should have left the oysters alone more, maybe less things on top, and more oyster on its own.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the 7 course tastingWe enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu.

On the way home my wife says " We have to go there more often" I Agree4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant find in Lincoln, MAAka Bistro was easy to find, it's at the heart of Lincoln center. I had not expected to find a great restaurant out in the greater Boston area so we were pleasantly surprised to have a romantic evening planned at this one. The restaurant is french-asian, we were looking forward to enjoying the blend of the two. We opted for the chef tasting menu for two which comprised 7 courses, 4 sashimi 2 french & 1 dessert. Included as well was wonderfully baked french bread which we enjoyed as well. The service was excellent, non-intrusive and courteous and helpful.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster Brunch experienceGreat food, surprisingly good, in an informal setting and reasonably priced. Service is attentive. We'll definitely be back!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I went to AKAMy husband and I went to AKA Bistro a week ago Saturday. We thought we had a reservation for restaurant week,when we got there we were told it ended so we shrugged it off as we were wrong and anticipated a nice dinner regardless. The food was very delicious & presented well, my husband is a highly trained chef and I have been in the restaurant business for over 30 years. We appreciate a nice restaurant. The only thing we would differently next time is, I would sit next to my husband in stead of across. We also were not crazy about sitting between people so close to us. We do not go out to hear everyone else's conversations. Hearing chit chat in general is one thing but details of everyone's day is another.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMout with group of friends,out with group of friends, we love this place.
