The food at Aqutaine Chestnut.Hill is consistently delicious! The menu offers a variety and the cocktails are excellent.

Great place for brunch or dinner. The servers are attentive, friendly and efficient. Always very helpful. They know the menu.

The bistro atmosphere is pleasant for dining and it has an upbeat atmosphere. Nice bar!

Aquitaine is a must!

The noise was not energetic, as the rating system suggested, it was unbearable. We were meeting with friends for dinner and could not have conversation at all because the music was so loud. Several times my friend asked to lower the sound with no success. We will not be back to this restaurant because of the noise level. Who said that having a loud music is good for the customers? It is definitive bad for your business.

I love coming here for lunch. It’s a pretty place with a varied menu and the waiter is happy to accept special requests. It’s a little expensive for a vegetable sandwich but very enjoyable.

I would recommend it for lunch but my experience with brunch was disappointing. Despite being among the first to be seated, my party of 6 had to wait about 15 minutes for someone to take our order (coffee and tea did come faster than that, however). When the food came ,it was lukewarm. My Swiss omelette was missing cheese. I would have said something but I wanted to spare my friends from the discomfort of eating while I waited for my food. There was only one slice of toast. It was excellent bread but one slice of toast? I know another friend at the table was disgruntled about that too.

I’ve been coming here for years. The breakfast is really good quality and value. What’s weird is that the staff is always so hit or miss. Our waiter felt bothered with asking for things like a plate to eat food on. The other thing that might sound picky, but they still haven’t changed is that they literally give you 5 small potatoes with your breakfast orders. These aren’t expensive items so it is perplexing. Fresh squeezed OJ is fantastic and great eggs Benedict.

The salmon dish was an overpriced ( i think $32) for a plain piece of fish and truly overcooked vegetables. No seasonings. Very bland. Apathetic manager. “Thanks for the feedback” should have been... wow... i hear youve been here twice just this week. This was the third time. You need to come back and i can understand why you’re saying this. (We won’t be back. )

The service, again, was terrible. Long wait for both our starters as well as main courses. We have been to Aquitaine three times since it was reopened and on two occasions the service was bad. Maybe we are going there too much.

A very mediocre brunch. The scrambled egg dish was soggy Not enough spinach. The fruit cup was very low end. Not though berries it would be helpful to say on the menu the duck contains red peppers. It spoilt the flavor of the dish. Aquitaine should up its brunch game

We haven't been here for several years,and have been to the other Aquataines. The atmosphere was nice, and the soup and salads were excellent, but the main course (salmon) was skimpy, rather bland ,and overpriced. Our waitress was grumpy, and hard to find. Maybe they were understaffed. However, I love French food so we'll give it another try sometime.

The restaurant reopened about 3 or 4 months ago. It was always a go-to place for us; it is even better than it used to be. A renovated restaurant, new menu items and some chef specials along with a great staff make Aquitaine a French bistro with contemporary flair. And Eric, the bartender, handles the bar effortlessly with a friendly approach.

I have been to this restaurant two times this week Since the food was really good .

but yesterday when I had my Reddish , it tastes there is no washing process including. I can taste some sands on the surface of the veggies.

The worst thing was the receptionist , she is not friendly and she did not arrange the waiting people in the ordinal position. I do not hope she has racial issuse.

The dinner was delicious
The waiter made it clear to us that he was not happy that we declined apetizersandc dessert ( we ate calorie conscious) thereby lowering the cost of our dinner and his cut .
We found that audacious and rude.
