Every time we visit Boston we have a wonderful brunch at Aquitaine. We love the location and the environment. We had an eggs Benedict, brioche French toast and Avocado toast with bloody Mary’s. Our waiter was super with one exception. He should have worn a...More

The intimate, Parisian bistro atmosphere, attentive service, and well prepared dishes, are all very good. The background music has changed to less appealing, louder and less civilized music and a return to the former playlist would complement (not detract from) the upscale bistro atmosphere. The...More

My colleague and I enjoy having mentoring and engineering discussions over delightful meals, and agreed to pick something French. This was an excellent choice for a later dinner, and we were seated in a quiet "private" room (glass doors, but only a handful of tables)....More

Had a really nice time at Aquitaine. The service is very professional and attentive. The wine selection was terrific. Two of us had the duck and it was very good. For starters the escargot was over the top delicious. Will visit again for sure.

Tried their brunch and was not impressed. Menu was OK but found portions on the small size plus the food was just average. Maybe we just hit an off day. Our friends have eaten here before and always found the food very good.

Dined here for New Year’s Eve. It is one of my favorite places - always a good experience. Great service, quality food and lively atmosphere. My “go to place” - be it for a special occasion or a random Tuesday.
