The duck was superb!!!! It was tender and in a special sauce.
We love it much we took guests there two days in a row.
We love the place, the staff is really friendly, the food is good and despite that, I give a 2 stars.
When we go to a restaurant, for brunch or diner (and even for lunch sometimes), I think we like to HAVE THE TIME enjoying a good meal with family or friends, and unfortunately in both times we went in this place (family brunch this time, lunch the first time), we weren’t able to feel that we had time... Sunday brunch for 4, 33 min overall for welcoming, order, service and check: we mostly had the feeling next clients were already there, waiting for our table, and it’s really not pleasant...
This was one if the best restaurants I have eaten at in many years. We had a wonderful waitress who had been there 15 years and was wonderfully attentive and knowledgeable! It was graduation weekend and the staff worked exceptionally hard to take care of everyone! Will definitely go there again when I’m back in Chestnut Hill, MA!
Two weeks ago, we made reservations for 7:30 on Saturday night. When we got there, we were told by the concierge that we could not be seated for at least half an hour because even the people with 7:15 reservations had not yet been seated. We eventually ate at the bar, and the bartender was very nice. But we are seriously disappointed at our reservation getting all messed up. We have just moved to this area and until this weekend, Aquitaine was our favorite new restaurant. Please do something to honor this major mistake on your part. Thank you, judy foreman
The saltiest escargots I’ve ever been served. A 45 minute wait for my main course and feeble excuses for the delay. Stay away.
Food very good but VERY noisy; seems noisier since the remodel. One comment: the profiteroles were up to par but very stingy with the chocolate sauce! Almost undetectable! Sole meunière extraordinary!!
The menu is great and the food (mussels, salmon, scallops, and sole) was terrific. The only difficulty was the delay in serving the main course. I think we were just unlucky. We had 90 min to get in and out before leaving to attend a show. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time for coffee and dessert. The food was fantastic and all 4 of us enjoyed every bite. We’ll return!
The reopened Aquitaine in Chestnut Hill is improved in two ways: rearranged layout and glass panels reduce the noise; and the menu is a bit more varied and interesting. Food was excellent, although the choices for desserts were limited and portions small.
Thanks - great service
The restaurant is a welcome quiet reprieve from noisy venues. The service is attentive and the food is fair to very good. My luncheon cobb salad was a nice presentation but bland. Cocktails are abundant.
This is a dependably good restaurant. There are many nice choices-some old favorites and some new.
Came here for a birthday dinner for a friend. The duck entree was delicious! Pate entree was great: wish there was just a little more accompaniments ie jam or honey. Just a little concerned about the floors that seemed really slippery on a rainy day.
Mother’s Day Brunch.
Coffee sloppily poured leaving stains on mug and tabletop.
Food intended to be hot was NOT. Not sure quiche was even at room temperature. Omelet was rubbery as though it had been sitting for a while—and it was not warm. Cheese had started to congeal.
Server offered to bring replacements. We didn’t want to run risk. Disappointed that some accommodation wasn’t made on check.
Mother’s Day Brunch. It took us less then a half an hour to order and eat.
Always an excellent experience at Aquitaine!
Our server was just attentive enough, at his recommendation we tried the ham and cheese quiche - which we hope they add to the regular menu.
Updated space is nice.
Broad menu to choose from.
Service and food was slow.
Food was very good.
Had a wonderful lunch this afternoon. Bravo! The brunch was lovely, the room was bright and airy.
We had a lovely meal. Great duck perfectly cooked! Loved the cocktails too.
Bday. Service was slow. Food mediocre. I wouldn’t go back
Fantastic meal, and great night celebrating with friends
Outstanding! Went for dinner with the girls- what a treat. Will be back soon for my usual!
Delicious food and fun atmosphere. Staff are friendly and accommodating - so we make this a "regular" dining stop.
Bartender Eric is a great guy. He could use a bit of help. Very conversationable. Remember us from almost 9 months ago. Food was great the potato soup and filet ay poivre were top notch. The pasta was fresh and delicious
Techno rock muzak completely spoiled the ambience. Food and service were great, but we will not be back unless the soundtrack is changed to something quiet, e.g. soft jazz, classical, even Edith Piaf.
Great evening out with my sister, Diane. I had the schnitzel and she had the scallops because her husband hates the smell of seafood when she cooks at home. Everything tasted fabulous... love the little bread bites! Will return soon, with or without Diane!
This was our first time visiting since the remodel and we loved the updated feel. The food is as good as always and this will remain one of our favorite go to spots. The beef bourgigon was amazing and the steak frites and the salmon are always excellent. The super hot french bread is something we look forward to and enjoy.
The menu varies from simple to fancier, so it will suit many palates. Service was excellent as were our dinners.
Our recent brunch was disappointing, as this restaurant had been a true gem. Food and service so so and the loud music made it impossible to talk to each other. Staff refused to turn it down when we complained. We won’t be back to what was once a favorite restaurant.
It's nice to have a beautiful french bistro in Chestnut Hill. The food, service and ambiance were great.
Best Restaurent in all of Newton. Easy winner. Brunch very special. Great music all 60s stuff. We love this place.
The service was great, food was a bit salty but the waiter took care of it with no problem. Place looks very nice
A most enjoyable experience. The new design is lovely and the food and service were wonderful.
Great time - as always
The food & ambiance were great.
Lovely decor since they redid it.
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.
Went for my bff's birthday lunch. It was good but I prefer the dinner menu. Service was excellent!
Everything done right for civilized dining
Love it here, always nice to see friendly faces. Ribeye special was out of this world as was our waiter. Definitely recommend, will be back soon.
