I knocked off a star because, like so many places, the music is too loud. But we had a wonderful meal and the service was very good.

This was an amazing meal. Thankfully we made reservations but still needed to wait a little bit in their very small vestibule, but it was so worth the wait. There were the perfect number of choices, each more delicious than the next. The portion size was perfect as we both cleaned our plates, but leave room for the dessert!

Looking forward to making an excuse to be back in the city so we can eat there again!

Very disappointed with brunch not as good as it usually is.
Portions were large but there was poor quality and overall basic diner type food.
Not something you would expect from a French bistro.

Aquitaine is a visual delight! You can't help but stare in awe of the curated decor and finished of the lovely cafe. The food is even better, if you can believe it! Sizable portions for French cuisine. Lastly, the cocktails were refreshing - and packed a punch!

It doesn't have the same type or quality of food that it had for years. The service is outstanding and the ambience is nice.

We loved our meal at Aquitaine! Our waiter was very helpful recommending his favorite items on the menu when we asked and the food was amazing! It's decorated beautifully as well, but is small so I would recommend making reservations.

Food and servers were very good. However, on a freezing evening, we were subjected to cold breezes from the outside due to a table too close to the door. Only after asking several times did the servers remember to close the inside door each time they came through..and not convenient for them either.
Secondly, and not as important, we had noted on open table that it was a special occasion..my birthday..and no one acknowledged it.

We were seated promptly, and the server did a nice job. We were all impressed by the general ambience, but the five of us were seated at a strange oblong table that made it difficult to make our plates fit; people also kept mistaking whose cutlery and water glasses were whose because of the table's bizarre shape. That said, the food was good; we each ordered different items, and enjoyed everything, although the duck was especially fatty and the escargot was not served in shells (which is what I expected at a French bistro). We were also a bit disappointed that there was no cheese on the menu...but really, these are small points. We had a great time and have no significant complaints.

We were quite pleased by the food and ambience! We were a little disappointed with the service, as it felt like we were left feeling neglected for extended spans of time with the dinner orders not being taken in a timely fashion and then later waiting for the dessert menu long after the dishes had been cleared away. It was not so long to have warranted walking out, but for the supposed caliber of this restaurant, we had hoped for better. It almost felt like the servers at times deliberately avoided your eye.

Thankfully our waitress was excellent because with the host being our first impression we almost left. We had a reservation and had to wait 25 min after our time to be seating. But were then only seated after I reminded him we were waiting AND he sat a couple that said loud enough for us to hear, they did not have a reservation but handed him a cash tip and was seated before us! With the vast number of restaurants in Boston, we will not be back.

Got there for 7pm reservation on time. Waited 45 minutes for table of 6 for 8 of us! Squashed in space! Table seated there before had a 6:15 reservation, so 7pm was never going to work. Don't promise what you know you will never be able to deliver!

I went with friend before theater. Our MO is to share everything, even a glass of wine! The waiter did not look aghast, and we left feeling very satisfied with a great house salad, split, and the duck breast, beautifully presented and yummy, also split.

I went to brunch with a group of friends and everyone was happy with the service and meals. Good drinks too! My group goes to brunch often and this was one of our favs! The only thing that we didn't enjoy, that is not even a complaint, is how crowded and tight the seating is. But we understood after we had the food! Well worth a drive here or stop by if in the neighborhood.

We have been to Aquitaine for Sunday brunch several times. It never fails to please. Varied enough menu, great service, tasty food - french style - (and they were able to accommodate one of our party who has milk allergies). They have good size booths and we were seated on time. You can't beat that!
