Charming restaurant....casual yet sophisticated. I like it as it easy. to park and fun for my friends. The food is delicious.
We were pleasantly surprised by the delicious food we had in the Chesnut Hill location. The portions, seasoning and produce were excellent, definitively recommended it!
This is my "go to" neighborhood restaurant...I dine here several times a month. As important as the food is the excellent service and the kindness of the manager. Keep up the good work
You requested on your reservation form if it were a special event. It was, so we were both surprised only to have an acknowledgement of happy BD from the desk. Why bother asking?
I could not have been more pleased with our evening! I would recommend Aquitaine in all regards. Excellent meal, loved the vibe and the decor. Service was great. I had the steak which was cooked to perfection!
My husband selected Aquitaine to celebrate Father’s Day. He thorough enjoyed it. The food is always delicious. Great proportions and the menu has quite a variety. In addition the cocktails are fantastic.
The bartender Stephania is excellent.
One of the many reasons we enjoy Aquitaine is that the food is consistently delicious!!
This week was my first time to Aquitaine, and couldn’t have been happier! Our server was accommodating and very knowledgeable. The food was absolutely delicious, they serve cheese puffs and a crunchy baguette before your meal!! Will be back for sure.
Disappointed with service (slow) but food was good. Was surprised at lack of people saying things like “welcome” or Happy Fathers Day, etc. not vital but always nice to hear. Crepes were cold, everything else really good.
Service was unusually slow
Everything was fine EXCEPT the scallops Which sounded like they were in an Asian Based sauce and I Am Very flexible and thought these would be great, But honestly they tasted really bad. The Flavors Didn’t Blend Or have any special Flavor at all. My friend who also ordered the scallops said it was like “eating scallops swimming in pea soup”. Argggh.
Sorry. Usually the food here is So reliably good but we wondered if anyone in the kitchen had tried this dish!?
Go, but don’t order the scallops.
Great restaurant we enjoy the food and services from the staffs
An updated and refreshed dining room still keeps the warmth and coziness of the original dining, while the food and service still shine. Thumbs Up!
Lunch time at 1 pm, not crowded so not noisy. Ordered pastrami sandwich and fries on menu, friend had Cobb salad. Not impressive quality or presentation but ok.
Waiter put dishes on table, walked away. No condiments were brought so had to ask. Had a watery iced tea. Waiter disappeared when time to pay so friend had to go find him.
Dinner better quality but very noisy. I like location and French bread.
Food and ambiance were good, but the service lacked attention and expertise. We were left waiting a few times, and the server didn't look very happy to help us.
Best place to eat inChestnut Hill. No more expensive then all the other higher end places and the food is better
Excellent service and surroundings.
Celebrating my 50th anniversary with my husband. Congratulated by our waiter and two other members of the staff. Given two glasses of sparkling wine on the house. Asked for and got a quiet corner. We will return.
Very lovely experience in terms of food & service
This was the first time we had eaten at Aquitaine Bis since it was renovated. The food was superb. I had the endive salad and Sole meunière. My companions enjoyed the salmon and the mackerel special. The bread came out warm and wonderful. The restaurant is a bit loud. The renovations have allowed for many more tables and the place was bustling. They have achieved a very authentic French bistro style including a surly waiter. The service is the only reason I cannot give this restaurant five stars. Overall it was really a wonderful dinner. I am disabled in a scooter and they were very accommodating. Very glad they’re back.
We had an absolutely wonderful dining experience at Aquitaine in Chestnut Hill. The reservation system performed excellently - our table for 7 was ready right when we walked through the door. The waiters also had no problem joining another empty table to ours to give us more "elbow room". Our waiter was brilliant in attending to our every need - treating my family with the utmost in hospitality. The orders were sent and the dinner was paced to perfection - nothing was rushed, glasses were always filled, and he was never too far away.
The appetizers were delicious: a cheese plate, some escargot, a tuna tartare. Everything was presented as a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. My entree was the filet au poivre and it was a delicious cut of tender beef with some floral peppercorn accents. The potato au gratin side was a nice slab of thin slices with some creamy, melty cheeses.
Everyone was too full for dessert, but my previous visit can recommend the apple Tarte with caramel and vanilla ice cream - sweet and sour goodness to reward yourself.
Merci beaucoup, Aquitaine.
A small gem now across the street from the previous location at Chestnut Hill and parking is easy. Foraged mushrooms in an omelette with multigrain bread and amazing potatoes. Now serving a vegetable frittata as well. Hard to choose which and a lovely departure from the simple same breakfasts at local delis. This was my first time and I can still recall the complexity of the flavors.
Do not miss the Steak Frites and French Onion Soup! Always wondersful to see Chris!
Nice environment, not too big not too small, great and friendly waiter. His recommendation of wine and food were great. Good wine and delicious food.
Excellent meal. Still a bit too noisy for ordinary conversation.
Food always good. The pain perdu was disappointing however- not as good as in past prior to renovation. Will try it again tho and hope it was an iff night
What a terrible experience. If you are looking for a quiet night out this is not the place. Also Aquitaine is much more expensive than indicated. I’ll never return here again
We had an excellent dinner last night at Aquitaine Bis. For me, the Steak Frites was better than I have ever had it before. I really would like to know the secret of the sauce. My wife had the Mushroom Risotto, which was also excellent. We had excellent service from our server, as always.
The duck was superb!!!! It was tender and in a special sauce.
We love it much we took guests there two days in a row.
We love the place, the staff is really friendly, the food is good and despite that, I give a 2 stars.
When we go to a restaurant, for brunch or diner (and even for lunch sometimes), I think we like to HAVE THE TIME enjoying a good meal with family or friends, and unfortunately in both times we went in this place (family brunch this time, lunch the first time), we weren’t able to feel that we had time... Sunday brunch for 4, 33 min overall for welcoming, order, service and check: we mostly had the feeling next clients were already there, waiting for our table, and it’s really not pleasant...
This was one if the best restaurants I have eaten at in many years. We had a wonderful waitress who had been there 15 years and was wonderfully attentive and knowledgeable! It was graduation weekend and the staff worked exceptionally hard to take care of everyone! Will definitely go there again when I’m back in Chestnut Hill, MA!
Two weeks ago, we made reservations for 7:30 on Saturday night. When we got there, we were told by the concierge that we could not be seated for at least half an hour because even the people with 7:15 reservations had not yet been seated. We eventually ate at the bar, and the bartender was very nice. But we are seriously disappointed at our reservation getting all messed up. We have just moved to this area and until this weekend, Aquitaine was our favorite new restaurant. Please do something to honor this major mistake on your part. Thank you, judy foreman
The saltiest escargots I’ve ever been served. A 45 minute wait for my main course and feeble excuses for the delay. Stay away.
Food very good but VERY noisy; seems noisier since the remodel. One comment: the profiteroles were up to par but very stingy with the chocolate sauce! Almost undetectable! Sole meunière extraordinary!!
The menu is great and the food (mussels, salmon, scallops, and sole) was terrific. The only difficulty was the delay in serving the main course. I think we were just unlucky. We had 90 min to get in and out before leaving to attend a show. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time for coffee and dessert. The food was fantastic and all 4 of us enjoyed every bite. We’ll return!
The reopened Aquitaine in Chestnut Hill is improved in two ways: rearranged layout and glass panels reduce the noise; and the menu is a bit more varied and interesting. Food was excellent, although the choices for desserts were limited and portions small.
Thanks - great service
The restaurant is a welcome quiet reprieve from noisy venues. The service is attentive and the food is fair to very good. My luncheon cobb salad was a nice presentation but bland. Cocktails are abundant.
This is a dependably good restaurant. There are many nice choices-some old favorites and some new.
Came here for a birthday dinner for a friend. The duck entree was delicious! Pate entree was great: wish there was just a little more accompaniments ie jam or honey. Just a little concerned about the floors that seemed really slippery on a rainy day.
