Beautiful new updated renovation. Love the bar area too. Excellent, friendly service, very comfortable.
Ate a nice meal with my mother
The food was fabulous . They seated us right on time.
Delicious dinner with friends. My Schnitzel dinner was excellent as was the escargot appetizer. (I did though decline the special rack of lamb at $41.) Very nice French wine. My wife had the duck l'orange which she thoroughly enjoyed along with a tasty German Riesling. Our friends likewise enjoyed their dinners and the service couldn't have been better despite a busy pre-holiday crowd. In all, a very pleasant though not inexpensive evening.
Nice remodel. Good as always. Bring back the schnitzel with BLUE CHEESE
I eat here a few every few months . If you bring back. SCHNITZEL WITH BLUE CHEESE I would come even more often
The brunch was excellent and a good value. The service was slow, probably because the restaurant was very full. I would go here for brunch again.
We were very disappointed. The menu was limited, the service was glacially slow and inefficient, and the portions were tiny. The manager came to apologize, saying they had gotten “swamped “ with walk-in customers, but they are a restaurant after all and should be able to handle volume. I have had excellent dinners at this location and terrific lunches at the Dedham location, so I was very let down by the quality of this experience.
Food and service were very good.
Will definitely return
Kitchen gets completely overwhelmed by number of people the restaurant accommodates. It took over one hour to get our main course (rack of lamb which they highly touted and a piece of fish). When the meal came out , the lamb looked like they had just removed it from the refrigerator and plopped it on a plate. We had to send it back ruining the meal for the person eating fish as we waited for the lamb to return. Four hours later, we left with a hefty bill and no apology for the unreasonable delay. Really poor for the area’s high standards and clientele.
Try the Friday special, skate frites. Be sure and make a reservation.
The vibe at the renovated Chestnut Hill location is perfect. It feels very special, particularly if you're a regular. In fact, it makes you want to be a regular.
The new settings are pleasant, although I missed the large French posters and photographs.
The staff , also, is very pleasant and professional.
But the food is not as good as it was before.
I was excited to get back to Aquitaine. I like what they have done in the remodeling. But the disappointment came with dinner. The salads were god. No complaints. The scallop dish was fine. The special of the day, the rib eye was well over priced and not a very good cut of meat. Also, ITV was over cooked. Got the price we paid, I would not order that again as i could pay a similar price at Smith and Wollensky.
Doubtful that we would return. Many other better restaurants around for the value. .
We use to go to the city’s Aquitaine all the time and when we moved to Newton, we were glad to see it here. It was a great brunch and great service. Looks pretty since the renovation too.
The decor and cuisine of Aquitaine have the feel of a charming French bistro. My friend and I had an excellent brunch there on a Saturday. The menu included both a la carte offerings and prix fixe options. I had a fines herbes omelette which was accompanied by roasted potatoes, a tiny green salad, and a sticky bun. The food was delicious and the waiter was attentive and helpful throughout the meal. My friend and I had a lot to talk about so we sat for a long time. The waiter never rushed us. It was a wonderful experience from beginning to end.
The duck was served extremely rare. When it returned it was not much better. I am experienced in French bistro cooking—medium rare should not be raw
For my palette, money & convenience, Aquitaine Bis is the best restaurant in Chestnut Hill. Since the renovation, I can't get there enough. From the daily specials, to the drinks, to the wide array of menu items, everything has been amazing.
Glad that the Chestnut Hill location reopened because it's cozy and always good and parking is easy compared to Boston. Mussels and Boar Bolognese were excellent.
The food as usual rates a 10 plus. freshly delicious! Great service as well. Wonderful ambiance.
Food was amazing. Our server was great! And love the atmosphere—both cozy & elegant. We’ll definitely be back again soon.
Poor service, under-seasoned food. Missing flatware. Inattentive service.
A last minute belated birthday dinner. The birthday girl received a lovely birthday note from the staff and a birthday candle with her apple tarte dessert.
Food and service were wonderful. Thank you for a great meal.
We each had the scallops and they were very good accompanied by red cabbage. We split a beet salad that was okay. I had a cocktail that was good. We split a dessert of apple tatin that was good. The bill was @$100 before tip. The restaurant has been remodeled and now has a long bar on one side with a clear glass partition between it and the seating area. There is also another seating area in the back. The noise level is low and makes conversation easier.
I would not ever go back.
Disappointing dinner which was quite expensive. It took the waiter 40 minutes to take our order and we received our dinner 90 minutes after sitting down. The restaurant was only about 1/2 full.
I ordered my salmon medium and it came to the table barely cooked. I sent it back for more cooking. The chicken was bland and disappointing. The brussels sprout and kale salad was tasty but over dressed. The potato gratin received high marks. Not worth a return visit at these prices.
Delicious, welcoming, professional staffing, nice ambiance
I've eaten at both Aquitaine Bis many times previously, and they've both been comparably excellent. I was looking forward to the reopening of Chestnut Hill, so I'm sorry to report my deep disappointment.
Just a few quick comments which I hope will help. The bolognese was a watery sauce with small pieces of chop meat--and very little of it. It was tasteless. The hamburger was dry; the bun was hard--stale. The pain perdu, which has been outstanding in the past, was dry and thin. The tart had a soft, soggy shell, as though microwaved. The waitress was not as attentive as she should have been; coffee was room temperature by the time the dessert arrived. The experience was also a little embarrassing since I had guests with me and I had spoken well of the restaurant when we were deciding where to eat
It might be a good idea to have a conversation with your chef
We went for brunch - a group of 6 people. Not one person was happy with their food. The coffee was not hot, the brioche french toast is deep fried and greasier than a fried dough at an amusement park, the portions are relatively small, and the server was nice, but very amateur. We had to ask for the toast that came with our omelettes and then two small (cold) slices came to the table.
We had an excellent experience at Aquitaine Bis last night (Saturday). Although the restaurant was crowded, our server was efficient, checking back frequently. The food was tasty. Noise level in the glass box was acceptable. The cheese puffs were back. Looks like they were reading the reviews on your site and addressing the issues. We would definitely recommend.
It was a busy Saturday night. Waited 45 minutes for the food. We shared a beet salad. The beets were paper thin. The scallops were over cooked and rubbery. The dish was entirely too, too salty. Inedible. The veal schnitzel would have been ok if there was any veal inside the breading. It’s a shame that the kitchen and waitstaff didn’t have it together.
We love Aquitaine. Food is great, the renovations have decreased the noise level, which is wonderful.
Excellent dining experience! The food was great, quiet spot, all great!
So happy Aquataine finally reopened! Excellent food and service. Best onion soup gratinee in town - wonderful little house puffs to begin - Outstanding crab salad (this is new on the menu) - and - of course - the divine profiteroles (hard to get in Boston - I think a lot of people don't know what they are )
Only criticism is that the music is too loud for quiet conversation - which is a good reason to go here as the atmosphere is cozy and relaxing - If they would turn down the volume of the music it would be perfect!
We are true foodies and eat out several times a week. Aquitaine Bis reopened recently after being closed for renovations. We ate there last Friday and returned again the next weekend because it was so good. The food, atmosphere and staff are all outstanding! We highly recommend it. The staff truly cares about the food quality and overall experience of their guests.
We haven’t been to this restaurant for quite a number of years. We had fond memories of our previous dining experience. But this time we are ver disappointing with their level of service. The wait staff is very inattentive. We asked for more butter which never came. When we asked for a second time, they just took my husband’s bread and plate away. The food is acceptable not exceptional.
I am so happy Acquataine has reopened. It is a wonderful restaurant with great food and very knowledge and attentive waitstaff. My only disappointment was that despite making an early 630pm reservation a week in advance, I was seated in the enclosed bar area where noise and movement by bar patrons put a slight damper on our evening. Next time, I will request the dining room. Who knew that the request needed to be part of my reservation request??
Didn’t enjoy my main course, the sole. It’s prepared differently at the Legacy Place location. Also, the mini loaf of bread at LP is better than the two rolls served at CH.
Replace the two boring rolls with your good French baguette!
Dependably great cuisine. Unfortunately our server was so rushed that he never remained even a moment for questions. 3 times we had to track him down when something was left out, when water was not refilled, when we had a question preordering. He literally would walk by the table and say or deliver something on the run so there could be no response. Spoiled our usual good experience at the restaurant.
