    Cant rave enough about this place. Chill vibe- had dinner lounging in an easy chair and couch. The food was well above any expectations and the wine list is the real deal. The flatbread with smoked bacon and creamy onions and leeks was delectable

    What a gem of a place!! Was going to a show in the neighborhood and picked this place on a friend’s recommendation. It did not disappoint! Food was excellent, & the manager was very knowledgeable and helped us select a budget friendly wine which was fabulous. Highly recommend for dinner with friends or a date night meal.

    I always visit when I am in town and I did again last night and as usual I left feeling extremely content with life! Excellent food (I loved the Duck Magret) and wine selection in a very relaxed space displaying some artifacts from their previous location. Thank you again Leo for your attentive service over the past 11 years (also Andrew who has been there for the same time).

    One of our regular go-to spots in the neighborhood. The staff are exceptional and the owner is always friendly and offers great advice on the many wines they have available. Their charcuterie boards are insane and I love their weekly specials. Also their Sunday roast chicken dinner is fantastic, and you have to order the fries in the wooden shoe. One of my favourite things is that you can purchase any bottle of wine they have on their list for 30% off, and they have an amazing selection of french varietals.

    A friend and I tried Aquitaine recently. It used to be a crepe place before. We both enjoyed our meals - cassoulet and chicken basquaise. We started with a side of pommes frites - we had seen them when we entered the restaurant. They were delicious! The wine list is also very interesting. I'd have given everything 5 stars except it would have been nice to know the prices of the items on the chalkboard. The service was top-notch and we thoroughly enjoyed the décor and ambience. I will definitely go again.

    The dinner this time was better than last time, although the polenta and mushrooms were not very hot despite the iron skillet. The scallops were divine, however, and not so creamy and rich that we felt guilty afterwards. The salmon tartare appetizer special was very, very good and generous. I think I might return frequently just to have the roasted beet & citrus salad. Yum! And the service is OUTSTANDING! Both Leo and the bus-person were soooo nice and attentive, we both felt quite indulged.

    Went in for the Chicken dinner that was advertised on their website for $66. On the website it says chicken dinner for two with frites, salad and a bottle of wine. When we asked the waiter about the wine he said it came with a half bottle and brought us two glasses we ended up paying $69 for the chicken dinner with two glasses of wine instead of $66 for the chicken dinner with a bottle of wine. It’s only $3 more than advertised, but the I went in expecting a chicken dinner with a bottle of wine and got a chicken dinner with two glasses of wine. Little confused.

    Excellent brunch at Aquitaine. The staff was very welcoming. My friends shared appetizers — the crab stuffed zucchini, cauliflower “beignets,” polenta fries (just the right amount of creaminess!), and the duck & waffles as a shared entree. Has a delicious berry aperitif. We enjoyed it so much that my friend came back for dinner the next night. I heard they had excellent wine too! Can’t wait to go back.

    AVOID: The most disgusting food we've ever eaten in SF; beet salad was lifeless and tasteless with overcooked beets; duck confit on lentils was utterly disgusting...sent it back. Go to L'Ardoise for real duck confit. Duck Rueben sandwiches were barely edible. One waiter to serve the entire restaurant. This place will be outta business within a year. Don't waste your time eating here. Total waste of money and huge disappointment.

    What a great french bistro! We were warmly greeted at the door and enjoyed a wonderful dinner in a beautiful restaurant with a very relaxing atmosphere. The staff's knowledge of french wine was impressive and the recommended wines paired perfectly with our courses. We can't say enough good things about the Duck Rueben and the Duck Confit. Two of the best dishes we've had in the City in recent memory. We strongly recommend both! The friendly service was outstanding. Aquitaine is definitely our favorite french bistro in the City!

    Such a terrible experience! We had made reservations for my husband's birthday, but then decided to cancel because we'd had a busy day. However, they called us and asked us to keep the reservation because they'd already ordered the chicken dinner we'd reserved. Given the struggles of restaurants in the pandemic, I agreed, and we came in. We were greeted very rudely by the server, who also demanded that we remove our masks. He motioned us to a table, and then proceeded to tell us that they were out of the chicken. We explained we'd reserved one, and he returned to grudgingly tell us that yes, we could have it. We then proceeded to wait. Eventually, he brought us our wine, and even more eventually, we got water. However, we sat for an hour with nothing else - not even bread. Finally, we got up, left money on the table for the (mediocre) wine, and left. The waiter shouted "thank you!' sarcastically to us at the top of his lungs as we left. I really wish they had just allowed us to cancel, since it was clear that they really didn't want us there. Will definitely never return.

    This was a delightful 'find'; we will be back! The menu features an array of traditional French favorites from poultry, beef, fish, foul and vegetarian options mostly from the south west of France. The robust flavors were enhanced by the quality ingredients. Our server (who happened to also be the owner) provided rich descriptive detail to aid in the selection process. It was all delicious and it all arrived at the same time. The ambiance is warm and welcoming with bright colors echoing those of the region of Aquitaine. The wine list offers a generous variety of choices from the region that partners well with the menu offerings.
