    While I found AKA Bistro a bit noisy, all outside influences disappeared once I was served. My meal ranks among the very best cuisine I have had in Boston. Every course, whether Japanese in origin or French, was delicate, bursting with flavors, some of which tantalized until identified, and utterly appropriate. A memorable meal! I will return as soon as I can.

  • Food was uniformly delicious
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 6/1/2010
    Food was uniformly delicious except for the limp french fries. The prices are city-high -- $213 for 4 people not including tip. This covered 2 soups, 1 salad, 1 bottle of wine, 2 juices/sodas, 4 entrees. The place is very noisy -- it was hard to hold a conversation without raising one's voice. The waiter said the restaurant plans to add window treatments to help reduce the noise level. The sushi/Japanese menu is served in the bistro side, but only a subset of its offerings are on the bistro menu. There's a separate sushi/Japanese menu which we knew about from our previous visit but had to request. The $45 Chef's "innovative" sashimi was excellent but the amount is not for someone who likes substantial portions of food.

    Japanese/French Bistro in Lincoln - we have visited AKA Bistro 4 times and have enjoyed an amazing culinary experience and gracious hospitality! The Sashimi dishes are unique combinations of fresh fish, spices, and complimentary sauces that are delicious to eat and even harder to "share"! The French menu provides many delicious dishes like Veal Stew, Pork Chops, Coq au Vin - which are reminiscent of a country inn. The kids menu provides a way to try escargot, frogs legs, and other delicacies in a kid-friendly way to expand their culinary horizons. The wait staff is very attentive and welcomes you like you are a member of the family! The entire experience is amazing from start to finish! We look forward to our next visit to AKA Bistro!

    Quality of cooking spot on. Waited on occasion for service but not bad. The menu varies depending on where you are seated, which is less than desirable. I'd like to see the full japanese menu without sitting at the bar, etc. commuter rail access if that is important to you but a nice local drive, so best to travel by car.

Very interesting flavors and beautiful presentation. The final dish -- a soft shell crab -- was a standout. Our only complaint was that we left the restaurant hungry.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 5/15/2010
    Suburban restaurants are a mixed bunch (that's being polite) - my off-the-charts rating reflects how AKA Bistro holds up in that category, but it also holds its own versus highly rated Boston restaurants. A miracle has come to town with the arrival of AKA Bistro and we worry one day we'll wake up and it was a dream.... right now we're just eating there as much as possible. Initially I wondered about the French/Sushi mix but its perfect because there's always something you are in the mood for and there's something for everyone. And, despite being a somewhat fancy restaurant, the kids are made incredibly welcome. I've had lots of different dishes and I've liked them all. Leave room to steal from the kids... their food is great too.

    Dined on 5/15/2010
    Lunch at AKA Bistro is as transformative experience as dinner. Eating on the brick patio under an umbrella, I wasn't sure whether I was in Lincoln or somewhere in the Perigord region of France. The food never ceases to amaze. So simple, yet so evocative. The Perigordian salad is as satisfying at lunch as it is at dinner. The poached egg in homemade brioche is ethereal, a bit of sunshine snuggled in a nest of delicious dough. The only criticism: although it was a sight to behold, the perfectly formed pyramid of rock shrimp tempura with fried shallots and prosciutto "dust" was a bit monotonous without any accompaniment.

Can't wait to return to try another item! AKA Bistro is a wonderful addition to the good pizza restaurant and excellent sandwich shop already available in Lincoln.

    Our experience at AKA Bistro overall was wonderful.Having a restaurant of this quality in the suburbs is a great addition to the dining scene.I had the Omakase tasting menu and the food and presentation was some of the best I have ever had. My husband had the menu du jour.The appetizer,a salad of scallops and mixed lettuces with a lemon vinaigrette,and dessert,a chocolate mousse,was outstanding as was the pork chop which was part of the main course. Our disappointment was with the presentation and plating of his main course. A plain bed of pasta that had not been drained properly with a pork chop sitting in the middle took us both by surprise for a French restaurant and kitchen.Service was good when we had it.A little shorthanded?

We were not disappointed. The quality of the fish was truly top notch. the the innovative sauces and touches Chef Chung creates really make the sashimi exp special. Boy Freind's Foie gras was cooked to perfection - the best he has had in Boston and even better than Bouchon and Bistro Jeanty in Napa. The duck breast was juicy and melted in your mouth.

    Menu was very interesting - the mix of sashimi and traditional french bistro was odd, but worked. The sashimi menu was really neat, and the french bistro menu offered both traditional and more innovative bistro cuisine. Pricey but in our opinion, the only restaurant among all the surrounding towns that's really worth a nice night out. We'll definitely go again!

    We recently found this place at the Lincoln Station. This is a very authentic French restaurant. My friend who lived in Paris for 7 years totally endorsed their Duck confit and Beef Bone Marrow. Plus, they have interesting Japanese sashimis. My husband is now addicted to their Kumamoto Oysters with Uni and Caviar. The noise level is almost unbearablly high and I hope they will do something about it. When we got there our table was not ready, so they need to be better at their table management too.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    AKA is becoming my favorite suburban restaurant. The food is excellent and the hip ambiance makes you feel like you are dining somewhere in Boston or Cambridge. What a gem for those of us who do not always want to drive into the city for quality food and atmosphere. The sashimi bar is one of the best in Boston. Same quality as O Ya or Uni, while definitely a better value when you select the 7 or 10 plate tasting menu. The French menu as authentic rustic French food. Even though some of the dishes look simple the execution is very sophisticated. Again a great value for the quality of food. AKA is probably my favorite restaurant in the western suburbs.

    The menu is daring in its combination of both Japanese and traditional French cuisine. You can have them separately or mix them up and in either case you won't regret it for a second. Of particular note is the rock shrimp tempura - probably the best tempura dish of any kind I've ever had. In our party of six, the foie gras tuna, sauteed lobster, five seaweed salad, rack of lamb and steak/frites also got very high marks. The service was spectacular and each waiter knows his/her menu and wines inside out (they also have an excellent beer list if you like European beers). All in all, an amazing experience. Aka Bistro finally puts Lincoln on the map for star dining. (p.s. no, this is not a shill review written by the owner)

    Excellent food on both Japanese and French sides. You can pick which side to eat on or mix it up. There is almost too much choice on the French side but nothing we've tried has disappointed yet. Don't miss the lobster papaya salad if that appeals to you. Very friendly, knowledgeable service. The decor is also very beautiful--not a reason to eat there but manages to be both warm and elegant. The location is a bit off the beaten path but finding a hidden gem is always fun and--free parking too!

    Squeezeboxer
    Dined on 4/17/2010
    Our second trip to AKA Bistro focused on the Japanese menu, and we had another outstanding meal. In contrast to the French menu, which presents classic authentic bistro dishes such as coq au vin and moules frites (at very reasonable prices), the Japanese side is notable for its innovativeness. Rock shrimp tempura was presented in a cloud of fluffy batter. Foie gras with unagi brought out the best features of both. Tuna tartare was delicately spiced and arrived in a pair of cucumber cornets. These exemplary offerings come at a rather steep price, as is so often the case for Japanese haute cuisine. The sake list is small but carefully selected, and representing a range of prices. The French menu is less rarified and much less expensive.

    Great to have a restaurant in Lincoln. The food didn't wow me but I would try again something off the french side. Although the frog legs were tasty they looked like something I diseceted in science class. We waited a long time for our tuna tartar. At first she said it was already brought on on the round platter which was the salmon sashimi. She greeted us and left for 15 minutes and hadn't told us the specials or taken a drink order. Another wait person came over and took our order. Then we waited another 10 minutes for our wine. I am pretty adventurous and order the frog legs, seaweed salad which I didn't care for. The staff was curteous and apologetic and didn't charge us for the last dish or the seaweed salad.

    A welcome addition to Lincoln and western suburbs but still settling in. Prices are high so food should match, not consistent yet, found the octopus dish tasty but not possible to finish as it was a bit heavy and oily. Need some clean, simple choices in addition to the heavy French dishes. Will return to try other options. My seat location was uncomfortable as wait staff had to squeeze behind my chair to serve the corner table, so there was someone continously leaning against my chair. Server was pleasant.

    We were really excited to go to AKA Bistro after years of waiting for a restaurant in Lincoln. There were 6 of us and we all loved what we ordered. We loved the bread, the desserts, were impressed by the number of champagnes that could be ordered by the glass, and my daughter said the macaroni and cheese was special, too. My mother who is 87 could not hear us talk due to the wooden floors and large table where we were seated, so it might not be a good choice if that is a concern. For me, it was expensive, and a special occasion, but I'm sure others will not feel that way. (entrees start at $22) I"m looking forward to trying the brunch and lunch menus, and the sashimi menu, which was quite unique.
