Diner Reviews
  • "We had a very enjoyable lunch with an excellent server."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Love Aquitaine, but this Monday was clearly an off night for the restaurant. The bar and waitstaff were not the usual caliber.The food was good, but the portions and presentation we're not the usual excellence. However, quick service due to being a Monday lAm sure it was just an off night. Am a loyal Aquitaine customer."

  • "Although my party has been there for brunch, this was the first time going for the "Dining Out" feature. Our meals were great and tasty!! We definitely will be back. The noise level was quite high and a party of ours who is partially deaf had a hard time. We'll come back at a quieter time."

  • "I generally enjoyed my experience at Aquitaine. The food was delicious, but it was rather loud and the seating is very close together. I would probably go back for an early dinner, or brunch, but it was quite busy when we got there. Definitely make a reservation."

  • "My favorite meal here is the Sole its absolutely amazing, that being said when I ordered it they told me they were out. I guess if something on your menu is a staple and consistent top seller you should try not to run out. Still a good restaurant and their escargot is delish"

  • "Met friends for lunch at 1 pm and everything about Aquitaine was perfect. Would definitely go again."

  • "Went to Dedham Aquitaine for Restaurant week. My dinner was much better than my husband's. I had the polenta frittes (delicious with a tangy tarragon dip), hanger steak, and almond pound cake - everything was very good. My husband had the bean and kale soup (flavorful but very few beans and less kale), buttered skate (fish was good, but the side dish was cold) and panna cotta - not much flavor. Service was terrific - attentive without hovering. Atmosphere was nice. It was romantic but also lively. They seemed to do a nice job of accommodating all different sized groups. My husband noted that the bar looked busy and fun as well."

  • "I had been to the Aquitaine once before for lunch and decided to give it a second try during restaurant week. It was in a very convenient location, with lots of free parking, and a fancy restaurant name. I opted for the restaurant week menu, which turned out to be very small portions and uninspired cooking. I'll have to try the Boston franchise to see if quality varies by location, i do give it high marks for service!"

  • "I love a great cup if coffee and theirs is excellent I ordered omelet alsacienne and eggs were a little dry but flavorful overall from mushrooms and onion. Server never rushed us which was appreciated and she kept the coffee flowing"

  • "My first time here for brunch and it was a great experience. I had the nutella french toast and a side of sausage it was delicious. I will definitely come back."

  • "I love Aquitaine and have eaten dinner their and in the other restuarants for years. The Prixe Fix Sunday Brunch was a huge disappointment. Great price but the food was just so, so."

  • "Wonderful service and a great selection of soups, salads to start, wonderful meals for the main course and excellent desserts."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "We went here on a recommendation and overall were pleased with our 1st visit which was an outing for a birthday celebration. For appetizers we had the gruyere tarlet, onion soup and squash bisque, all of which we liked. The tartlet was just a bit heavy. The bread loaf and cheese puffs that come with dinner were both tasty. For dinner we had the Tagliatelle and the Lemon Sole. The sole was good and had a pretty presentation, the tagliatelle was nice, but a little on the bland side. Portions were good, not small and not too big. For dessert we had the creme brulee which vanished quickly - very tasty. We would eat here again."

  • "Where was the bistro ambiance, great service or great food one usually enjoys at Aquitaine? Who started the trend of bringing crying babies and toddlers to a presumedly upscale restaurant? After the OVER TWO HOURS it took for us to get and finish lunch (And we arrived when it was practically empty) we felt as though we had spent the afternoon in daycare! Back to Chestnut Hill , where we have never had such an experience! Sadly, the rating choices do not allow us to rate our experience as honestly as we might, as Open Table forces one to the positive."

  • "Came in for brunch over the weekend. Food was good, service was OK. I like the ambiance... a nice, bright comfortable spot in Legacy Place. Will return."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "My two friends and I have returned to Aquitaine over and over for a lunch of steak frites, red wine, and profiteroles shared three ways. The food and atmosphere never disappoint. The only thing that might make it better would be to move the restaurant to Paris, and us with it. Thanks!"

  • "Food surpassed my expectations and was piping hot and very tasty. The food was high quality and well prepared. My cocktail was delicious and the ambiance is very nice. Will be going back-"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Service was horrible - had to flag down one of the managers to get a waitress after sitting there for 15 minutes with no one coming by table. Even then service was spotty. Food very mediocre - not worth the money. Will not be returning."

  • "We always have a good time when we go to Aquitaine. The service is attentive, but doesn't "hover" ....and the food is quite good."

  • "Food and service was great. We dine here regularly."

  • "Reasonably priced French bistro experience. Really liked the service. Escargots were great. Enjoyed the ambience."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "The atmosphere makes one want to linger over the delicious food and drink. It's a change from most restaurants one expects to find in a shopping area."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I actually went there because I heard about the wine list not really because of the food. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the food was excellent. The steak was so succulent and the fish that my wife had was perfect. Definitely going back. My server has great and so professional."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "First time I went for restaurant week, and decided to go back again because I had really liked it! We started with the lobster beignets. They were very tasty, however, my friend and I didn't like the sauce, it was a little too sweet to accompany lobster. I got the gnocchi for my meal. Excellent, the sauce was awesome. My friend got the paparadelle, and it was good, but the meat was a little on the dry side, and the pasta a bit bland...I wouldn't get that again.....we didn't really love the desserts, so I'd probably skip the dessert at this place. We got the molten chocolate cake, and the apple tarte. The apples in the tarte were VERY tart...like really sour..and the crust didn't have much flavor, so all we really ate was the ice cream."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We have fond memories of the Aquitaine restaurants, from the South End to Chestnut Hill to Dedham. All great food experiences. My wife is from France and can be a bit "picky" about restaurants trying to pass themselves off as "French". While she always finds something that isn't "authentic" she loves Aquitaine. We'll keep going back."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "When we arrived they were too busy to seat us at our reservation time. We killed some time at the bar which was berry busy. It was too noisy to really have much conversation. We enjoyed our dinners, the flounder and the scallops but were agreeing that the menu is too limited to make it a regular dining spot for us."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Food was great, although if you have a big appetite, be aware they have small portions."
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "Like the menu but most of the dishes poorly executed, i.e. food just isnt good."
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "We have come to love Aquitaine. The meal starts out with an amazing warm loaf of baguette. The wine list is extensive, both by the glass and bottle. The server was really nice to find a way to charge me half price for a glass of wine since I told him I love wine, but can only tolerate a half glass. Really nice personal attention. The soups here are almost always excellent - the squash bisque and mushroom bisque are so flavorful. As for entrees, the Scottish salmon is a real winner, as is the Tagliatelle with pieces of braised short rib. Surprisingly, during out last visit, the big disappointment was the steak frites - a tough cut of beef. And the roasted brussel sprouts were undercooked. Nice patio for outdoor eating in the summer."

  • "I am a big fan of Aquitaine in Dedham....the food and staff are first class. I have rarely had brunch though, and it was a treat this past Monday (MLK Day). Don't miss this gem."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "We very had good entrees (chicken, excellent filet of sole) with disappointing side dishes (brussel sprouts, quinoa, VERY creamy mashed potatoes), along with some very fresh but overly dressed salads. If prices had been more moderate and the service had been more coordinated (entrees were served after we were barely halfway done with our salads), it would have been easier to give this a higher rating. But given our experience, we'd only give it so-so marks."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Excellent food! We all got the Steak Frites and all were cooked perfectly. My wife and I shared a bottle of the Rose Brut which was excellent as well. Service was great. We'll be back."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "This was my first experience with a restaurant in the Aquitaine Restaurant Group that left something more to be desired. Now I'm not saying that I will not visit any other restaurants in the group, I just will not be dining at this location anymore. The Aquitaine in Dedham is too small for its attraction; after making a 12:30pm Sunday brunch reservation, my party was not seated until closer to 1pm with other parties being seated before us. The Prix Fixe menu was a great deal but the portions were on the small side, had I known I would of ordered the full sized course. Overall, the food was great but the Prix fixe selection could use some tweaking."

  • "we enjoy gong here after the movies at Legacy Place; the food and service are both outstanding"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "The atmosphere at Aquitaine is pleasant, the food was good although it arrived not hot and with a sloppier presentation than in previous times. The service was very slow- we had to wait quite a while before even placing the drinks order and then another long wait for the meals. The prices have gone up too-an expensive evening."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Visited here again last night and was again, very impressed! Everything from the service to the menu to the food was absolutely delicious! Two thumbs up for this new gem of Dedham!"
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "This location does not live up to the same standards as South End or Chestnut Hill. Second time I've tried it and been disappointed by the quality of the food."
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "Another great meal on a quiet Monday night. Sara, our waitress, made great suggestions. My husband order the a pasta dish with a side of mushrooms which made the dish (should be combined in the pasta). The mussels app was also quiet tasty. Make sure to take advantage of the staffs expertise, it really is helpful."
