The best food around. Can't beat it. Did not eat this well visiting the south of France two years ago. The chef knows what he is doing and does it extremely well. Great value also. Please open a restaurant on the cape; Harwich, Chatham area.

Always enjoy the food here which is consistently good. A bit loud when busy, but a vibrant atmosphere.

Hidden gem in Dedham!
We came for a quick dinner before a movie and we were in & out in just under an hour...not at all rushed...and our server was very helpful in making sure we were able to make it out on time. The food was really quite good & beautifully presented, and the drinks weren't watered down (just the right amount of alcohol). It's a nice enough atmosphere that you can go casual with friends or cuddle up for a romantic dinner...a versatile gem in Legacy Place! Definitely recommend...and we will come back for sure!

A great experience.
We've been to this restaurant a few times for lunch and decided to try it for dinner. The calamari appetizer was lively and very tasty. The Steak Frites had a nice flavor and I especially enjoyed the Au Gratin potatoes. My wife enjoyed the Sole. Being Mother's Day, we brought the kids. They loved their Steak and Fries and being able to decorate the paper covering the table cloth. Our server was very accommodating, and was attentive without making us feel rushed. All in all, a great experience.

Great food & Wait Staff. The tables are too close together, which makes for a crowded room,.

We went for brunch. The food was very good, but the portions were small. We both got the pre-fix menu so that may have been why the portion size was smaller, but everything tasted really good and the service was great.

post graduation lunch/dinner
we arrived 30 minutes late (had called to let them know) for a 3:30 reservation and we were greeted with great sympathy for the traffic woes. The rest of our party was even later for the same reasons and were greeted in an equally friendly way. The dining room was near empty which kept the noise at a very low level- again great for our celebration. The steak frites were delicious and cooked to order and our vegetarian found a nice choice among the fish entrees. The food was very good and the service was quite attentive, we all found Aquitane to be just fancy enough without being stuffy.

Aquitaine has never disappointed when it comes to fine dining. Great place for a romantic dinner

As always, delicious
Everything is just delicious - from the bread, to the drinks, to the cobb salad with roasted chicken and hunks of bleu cheese, this place is always great.

Another pleasant brunch experience
Last Sunday was Father's Day and the two of us were "sans" a Dad. One was traveling on business, the other dearly departed. So we headed to this favorite spot and enjoyed our patio breakfast. Life is good at Aquitaine in Legacy Place.

I had an awesome swordfish special that was scrumptious. I always have trouble deciding what to order because there are so many good choices...

We ended up going here because this was the only restaurant that would take reservations. It was a pleasant surprise. The food was so delicious. We had appetizers, entrees and had to get dessert. The service was great and the staff was very attentive and polite. Our server saw that it was my birthday and brought over chocolate cake. The noise level was moderate. While there was a buzz in the room, you were still able to hold private conversations and hear your company. Great experience!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM

Great food at acceptable quality to price ratio. Can be very noisy due to lack if absorbing features on the walls

Our dinner was at the Aquitaine Restaurant at Chestnut Hill. Perhaps I put our reservation at Dedham.

After a few poor times, the restaurant seems to have improved significantly. Better attention to detail and quality of food.

A Great Place
I love the whole "French" thing. The decor is fun. And the food is French cuisine. There are a lways a bunch of things on the menu that I would like to try. I've been there quite a few times and will go back.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Back to Paris or Brussels!
The title says it all. We really enjoyed our outdoor dinner experience.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fire alarm went off....food is so good, no one left...and diners were still coming in...the only thing missing was some courtesy earplugs. Uh, maybe free coffee?? Still my favorite....the food, the staff.....the best!!

First time visit, not the last
First, I made reservations from my car parked in the garage at Legacy 5 minutes before reservation time of 630pm. Restaurant had the reservation by the time we walked out of the garage and across the parking lot. Inside decor was classy, but dark. Outside dining was offered and taken. Not much scenery outside, just shoppers and the bee flying from flower to flower in the window boxes hanging beside the tables. The food was great! From the mushroom bisque, escargots appetizers to our main courses moules frites provencal (mussels) and truffled bacon burger, the flavorfull ingredients were noticed but not overpowering.

Enjoyable dining experience!!
My friends and I had a most memorable experience at Aquitaine. The food was very good and each of us enjoyed our different meal.
We were able to sit and relax without feeling rushed as our service was outstanding. The waitress was most attentive and made
our evening very pleasant.

Good before a movie
This is a good place for dinner before a movie at Legacy Place - a bit pricey but the food is excellent. Steaks are on the small side but delicious. Service is excellent and the outdoor space is fun.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love this restaurant, my husband and I go whenever we're craving french fare. Have never been disappointed by the food or service.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am not a person that eats French food that often, but my experience Friday night might change that. The great part about “Restaurant week” I don’t think I would of ever tried this place and I am glad went outside of my comfort zone. The food was outstanding and the service was great, our waiter was knowledgeable and recommended the right wine with our dinner.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I loved the lobster roll and the eggs Benedict Provençal. Beautiful place. Nice service.

Very pleasant and delicious!
The staff (hostess, manager and server) were extremely pleasant and all made a point to congratulate us on our wedding anniversary. The food was delicious. The swordfish was moist and very tender and flavorful. The pasta was some of the best I've ever had. You could also tell that only the freshest ingredients were used. The apple tart dessert ended up not being our favorite; it was good but not as great as the rest of the meal.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and look forward to visiting again soon!

Problem with the baguettes
We love this restaurant, but don't feel the bread is the same high quality as the food. Saturday night we were quite sure that the bread had been microwaved. This is a real no-no! They need to work the bread angle.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
A group of good friends gathered at Aquitane on a quiet night so we were able to hear each other. The food was quite good but what made the evening special was our waiter, Jude. He was attentive, friendly and just a delight. This was our first visit to this location and it has a different feel than the South End. The South End feels more like a bistro while Dedham feels more like a nicer but not over the top dinner place. I wish the business good luck.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service were fantastic! We had a group of 6 for brunch before the Partiots game and the Bloody Mary's were a perfect start to our day.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Brunch for a bunch
We had a wonderful waiter who was attentive but not in your face. He was efficient and helpful and very polite. His name is Jude.
One person had the hamburger and it looked very good . He seemed to enjoy it. Others had omlettes and one of those people thought it was too dry. Another had a benedict egg plate that was very good. the home fries and the french fries were done just right. I would return for brunch or lunch at another time.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best restaurant in the area. Have been there many times...and have tried about everything; never disappointed.

Good Hearty Bistro Cuisine
My husband and I were joined by our guests who had never dined at Aquitaine before. We all enjoyed the Fall menu including squash soup; fresh and lightly dressed salads and wonderful entrees including the velvety sole and excellent hake.
The service was well paced and the hosts were able to accommodate earlier seating which was perfect.
We continue to recommend this restaurant enthusiastically.

One Bad Apple...
This is one of our favorite restaurants to go to. We usually get a seat at the bar and this time was not different. The only thing different was the bartender. Took him 20 minutes to even acknowledge us. I assumed he would not be too attentive. I was right. One of the servers came behind the bar to get something, made eye contact with my wife and I and immediately took our order. The food and wine were, as always, excellent! Never a complaint there. The server and GM could not have been more apologetic and sympathetic. Not the best experience but not bad enough where we won't go back. We'll just be sure to sit in the dining room if he's on the bar.

Great wine bar
Great lunch spot and casual dinner place with a really nice emphasis on wine and French culture.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoyed our late lunch
We enjoyed our late lunch and prefer that menu over the dinner options. Our server was excellent, and very accomodating. Due to the always busy parking lot, we walked in close to the 4pm switch to the dinner menu... we do have watches, so we didn't need to be reminded at the door that "we have 5 minutes" before lunch ends. Kind of unnecessary, a lame technicality when the customer should always be right.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Will certainly return
This was our second experience at Aquitaine and my husband and I had an excellent dinner. We were seated promptly at our reservation time, service was very good and the food was very good. The only disappointment was that the bearnaise sauce was flavored mayonnaise, but I can overlook it because the rest of the food was excellent and the steak was perfectly cooked. This could be a new favorite!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
What makes a good restaurant is the food and the staff. Aquataine Dedham....has all of that, and more. For me, it's like a second home....thank you.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was a first-time lunch experience. (We've been there multiple times for dinner.) Out of four entrees, my husband's turkey club sandwich disappointed him: regular sandwich size (single layer) and not much flavor. Otherwise, the remaining 3 lunches were very good.

Good Place. Good Location
Everything I had at this place is something I had before. The escargots were great and large, but we didn't receive bread until after the escargot was taken away. Would have liked to have been given an escargot fork, but that is just being needy. The wine list ranged from affordable to more pricey, but that is expected and the carafe is a good medium option not typically offered. The mussels and duck confit were great.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is superb, everyone must try this restaurant! They have a lovely bar and the service is impeccable.
