AKA BISTRO brings a city dining experience to Lincoln with quality food and service, but without city prices. AKA BISTRO serves both authentic
Provençal fare and innovative Japanese sashimi, prepared by award winning Executive Chef Chris Chung. Whether choosing from the French bistro or the sashimi menu, everything will be fresh, seasonal and locally grown when
possible. Surrounded by gardens, the outdoor terrace seats 28. Located just 20 minutes west of Boston at the Lincoln Station Depot, the
surrounding farms of Lincoln will provide much of the produce. Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant will also serve brunch on weekends and provide take-out. Reservations recommended.

Unfortunately, this lovely spot has closed and this was our last meal there. The place became a favorite, not for proximity, but also the excellent food and wonderful staff. We will be following Chris and Christian to where ever they next land. We wish them the best and hope to see them soon!

The white wine sauce with my mussels was excellent, just excellent. Very good fries, an item more important and hard to find than you would think. They do French very well. Miso soup was solid, but not something you go there for. Pork dumplings were tasty and notable. Had the mousse for dessert, so good. You can bring your reasonably behaved children there, they will be welcome as there and you will all eat well. We went for my hubby's birthday dinner as a brunch since that's when we had a sitter. It was less formal than I would have liked for that, but for what it actually is, it does a great job.

After arriving at 7:30, it took quite a while to have someone take a drink order. At that time we were told specials and informed of a number of menu dishes they had run out of, steak tartar...
Then after a long wait to get our drinks, we ordered; also informed they only had one chicken (another regular menu dish).

Waitress came back to inform us they had run out of Beet Salad (A Special). We asked to see manager, asked why they were running out of so many items and instead of apologizing and trying to make things right, he argued with us. I understand limited amount of specials, but not limited amount of menu items.

It was a business meeting. Everyone enjoyed their food and thought very highly of the outdoor seating.

Atmosphere was nice, great food and service, worth the little extra cost.

Great chicken Dish. Mussels too salty but still Delish Creme brûlée excellent. Slow Service, tables that arrived after us were done before we got our meals.

Had the chef's tasting menu. It started off well, but some of the courses were a bit uneven and didn't quite work. Not bad, but not quite foodie level.

The problem we encountered was not only was the mushroom soup cold( the bowl was warm; the soup cold) but one main course was also not hot. The service was good.
We were disappointed.

We've been to AKA SEVERAL TIMES and have always had a pleasant evening. The cuisine is eclectic but always good.

My group had a wonderful time at the bar and really enjoyed both the meal and the ambiance. My seafood risotto was phenomenal!

We really enjoyed the specialty cocktails and the bartender was very quick to recommend something based on what each of us liked/disliked. The food came quickly and the wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. We had mousse au chocolat and creme brullee and they were both heavenly! All in all we had a great time!
