This was the best restaurant we went to by far in our weekstay.
The service was good. The food was tastey. The wait staff was super nice. However the restaurant ran out of bread which was a little disappointing since the food come a little slow. The drinks were also good! We sat outdoor so it was a bit chilly even with the heat lamp due to its design. However, We enjoyed our overall experience at Aquitaine.
As usual, the setting was lovely and blessedly quiet, the service was excellent, and the food was very good. Highly recommended!
As always, our brunch dining experience at Aquitaine was spot on. The food was great and I can't compliment our server enough. He was very busy but was welcoming and friendly, took time to answer questions, and was kind toward our antsy toddler. Thanks to the Aquitaine team for being consistently pleasant, knowledgeable, and hardworking!
I can't say enough good things about Aquitaine. The food was excellent all the way through from apps to dessert. But even better than the food was the service. Our server was friendly, prompt, professional, attentive, and funny. He truly made our time at Aquitaine a wonderful experience.
Food - excellent though portion of one dish (sole) was small.
Waiter - knowledgeable, helpful, personable without being intrusive.
Dinner was delicious and service outstanding. Great cocktails!
Excellent food. Pleasant setting and friendly accommodating people. As usual, an all around great dinner.
One of the most spacious outdoor patios around. We ate and conversed at our leisure and didn't feel rushed.
Service a little slow. Have noticed this elsewhere probably because of Covid
Wonderful style and visual appeal, combined with attentive and friendly service, keep me coming back for both special lunch dates and celebratory dinners. Cocktails are well-crafted and the appetizers, entrees, and desserts do not disappoint. On my last visit the steak frites selection was perfection.
Went for Sunday Brunch and was shocked by the meager portions and potato chips served with scrambled eggs instead of home fries. It is a far cry from the meals we have enjoyed before the pandemic.
The brunch was poor and took a very a long time. I waited 45 min for scrambled eggs and bacon that came cold, oily and in a very small portion. Very disappointing and not leaving to the standards that this restaurant once had.
Delicious food and our waitress was wonderful. Great menu selection Will definitely be back when I’m in Boston.
Lovely food as always and because they have commandeered a side street dining is not interrupted by car noises or sirens
Everything was wonderful from the service to the food. Great experience
We have eaten at Aquitaine many rimes and have never been disappointed. We brought friends and they were very pleased with everything they ordered.
My wife and I had the escargot and, as always, they were delicious. However, the sole we ordered, which has always been a favorite, was a quarter of the size it usually is. My wife’s portion and mine together would not equal the size of what we have received in the past. If the sole was limited it would have been better to just let us know and we would pick out something else. We realize that there are many shortages in the restaurant industry and would have understood. For the first time ever, we left Aquitaine still hungry. If this had been our first time there I doubt we would return.
The service, appetizers, wine, the outdoor seating and dessert were wonderful! We are assuming that this is an anomaly and do plan to return.
Our server was horrible. We waited so long for our entrees we almost left. We asked the server a couple times about the whereabouts of the meal and she would say "they are plating it right now" and then another 10 -15 minutes would go by. She never came to check on us, never acknowledged that things were slow or apologized for the delay (which is all she would have needed to do to stay in our good graces). She was snippy and rude as though we were causing her problems by asking after our food! We have had great meals at Aquitaine in the past but will not be going back anytime soon.
Food was ok. Fries average , potato gratin average haricot verts good
Aesthetically pleasing, the server needed to be flagged down at a few intervals to keep the courses on tracks following a few lengthy gaps in service, but overall, a very pleasant evening! Thank you.
Excellent food and service!
Have been here many times and it’s usually good. But tonight was an unfortunate exception. The food was not good. Our server was lovely, but service was slow. I’m hoping it’s an aberration and that It returns to its usual standards.
Always great food. Really enjoyed outside dining. Service was fantastic.
They need more staff and an extra set of hands in the kitchen.
We had a great time! Waiter & food was great. Outdoor dining felt like Europe & we loved it!
Hostess and server seemed rushed. I think they were stretched too thin. I felt like I was imposing whenever I asked for something. Also AC inside was on, despite hostess telling me otherwise. Too cold inside. Food, beverage and ambiance were good.
We always enjoyed Aquitaine. But this time, it was off.
I ordered the Steak Frites Parisienne, which was said to include a tomato and watercress side with the NY strip steak. Steak was fine. But one sliver of tomato and two tiny sprigs of watercress does not cut it. Price was too high for what was prepared.
Great dinner experience! Food was amazing and service wonderful! The escargots were divine. I was born and raised in France and I give it a A+!
Fantastic service and the food never disappoints.
Perfect experience, delicious food, friendly waitstaff - I'll be back!
We always celebrate our anniversary at Aquitaine and had another lovely evening. The food and staff are wonderful - I highly recommend!
I've been at this restaurant many times.. I like the atmosphere and the food is usually good. Although, last night the server was very short and sounded a little "robotic".
My husband has hearing and memory issues and, perhaps, he repeats the same questions or has difficulties to understand people, especially if he is in a location that has not good acoustic sound. Another thing that might be hard on old people is the menu being a QR code. Since I was a server in the past, my advice is: If a server is attending a table with old/elderly people, the best thing is to offer the paper menu, do not wait for the customer to ask for one. Offer it ahead and just be a little more patient.
Food is always great. Our entrees took over an hour to arrive due to a back up in the kitchen but our waitress was very nice.
Delectable! When the restaurant in Dedham closed we were so upset! It was our GO TO place to celebrate! Having been to the Back Bay location just once and having had it not meet our expectations based on our many experiences in Dedham, I was leery going here when my wife made the reservations for ourselves and two of our best friends. It was a beautiful night and we sat outside in their make-shift alleyway dining which was actually quite charming. They were not busy so had our waiter all to ourselves. He was polite and timely as well. The cocktails were spot on, as usual. However, it was the meal that was going to make or break the experience and boy did it deliver. I won't bother going into what we had but suffice it so say all four of our meals were devoured to the plain plates. We had an early 7:30 curtain to catch so no highest of calorie desserts were had! Next time.
Delicious food, attentive, but not pushy service, Aquitaine lived up to expectations. Onion soup and branzino were especially tasty. Try the chocolate mousse.
We sat outside in Aquitaine's very pleasant patio. The servers were attentive and good humored. We had 7 people, so sat at two adjacent tables. Everyone enjoyed their brunch.
Delightful place for brunch. Lots of outdoir seating, which is what we were looking for, though the interior looked quite attractive. I liked the creativity on the menu. My omelet with truffle and asparagus was tasty. My companions also liked their dishes
Great food, great atmosphere. Would definitely come back.
Wedding Anniversary- we were greeting with glasses of champagne
