My son LOVED the restaurant, the service and the food!! His 21st birthday celebration, though small, was really wonderful. Thanks to everyone for helping us to make this memory and birthday milestone a special one!

The whole experience was great. Even sitting outside with the cold weather was great because of the heaters. We can’t wait to go back. Come hungry!

I'm a "regular" at Aquitaine and loving it.
My guest and I sat outdoors under the stars on a quiet (relative) side street. Our waiter (Dennison) is such a professional! He knows what to suggest and knows what we like. My guest just loves the Sole Meunier and I had the duck, though I had considered the special swordfish.

Our service was not good. We had to constantly flag down staff with questions etc. Our waitress never asked how things were. The goat cheese was missing from my friends goat cheese salad etc

We got lucky to eat outside the week after it snowed in Boston. The weather was great which helped set the mood, the food was great - like it always is - and the staff were attentive. You couldn't have asked for a more pleasant brunch.

Can’t believe I have never been here. My husband and I LOVED our brunch. Eggs Benedict, French toast, Bloody Mary, Cosmo - all top notch. The outside seating area was perfect for a beautiful November day. Can’t get back there soon enough.

Aquitaine is one of my favorite places for brunch. The fact that they are able to serve outside is such a plus in this time of COVID. They now even have heaters and umbrellas in case of rain, which was threatening but never really arrived until we got home. I can always count on the food being great. My new favorite is the brioche french toast! With an egg of some king on the side, I could eat it every day. I saw that Aquitaine is putting in partitions between booths so I will definitely be back when it is too cold to eat outside.

We went yesterday for a family brunch and it was good, we asked for American breakfast and Benedict eggs and both were good.
Probably we will repeat.

Aquitaine has amazing food! We really enjoyed our entrees. Duck chicken, etc were really good. It could improve on onion soup, however.

Waiter took 1 hour to take our order and then 45 to serve. I asked for an omelette without cheese since I am lactose intolerant and it came with cheese. My friends loved the french toast though :)

As the colder weather comes I would suggest that you get more patio heaters. We sat out front for dinner by the street and it was pretty chilly. The heater was a little too far away to give us enough heat.

They overcharged me and my guest. The server messed up the order and forgot things we ordered and we waited 35 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation. All around disappointed as I love Aquataine.

Our waiter tried his best but we waited forever for our food and it arrived cold and was unmemorable, if not boring.
FYI- Cold fried eggs, omelettes, and toast are not worth waiting for.

Delicious! If you get the mussels make sure you order more bread to soak up the delicious sauce. The filet au poivre was absolutely delicious. It’s not a meal I typically get at Aquitaine but I’m glad I did. I loved every bite.
