Decent Brunch

Went for brunch on a Sunday, great service and polite staff. The menu lacked originality, I felt, but the food was decent. I had the chorizo hash that was more of a fritter than hash, so that was disappointing, but it wasn't bad. My boyfriend had the steak and eggs and the steak wasn't very... read more

This French restaurant was outstanding and very delicious from A to Zinc. We had the Red Tuna and the "Cassoulet Toulousain" It bordered on absolute spotless perfection. I have immediate family in France and this restaurant reminds me those small neighborhood bistrots often hide.

The one thing I'll say is that their brunch prix fixe is cheap. It comes with a juice/coffee, cinnamon bun, and one of a few choices of entree. I had the omelette which was over cooked. The apple sausage was actually pretty good. The Parisian crepes were average.

We have been coming here for a few years now and the food and service are consistently good. The moules frites are always tasty as is the onion soup. So many great choices.

My foodies from NY loved this place. nice cocktails for all different taste. We loved the mussels and home made chips and fries. I took my mom for Mothers Day as well and she really enjoyed the limited menu.

Contrary to a review I can see on my screen as I type this, our waitress was prompt, professional and perfect. The food was perfect. My wife had the side of asperagus in... More

Yes, the food is extraordinary. It was our 5th time here. But this time was extremely disappointing. The service was unprofessional in any possible way. The room was too hot. The staff was rude and forgot even basic things. It really ruined the entire experience. I don't think I'll give them another chance, there are enough great restaurants in Boston....... More

Service must be a pride of Aquitaine, careful and engaging conversation, in depth knowledge of the menu and chef's preparation, leaves for no surprises. Their fine wine selections and boogy-woogy hand crafted cocktails mixed to perfection is not by luck. For me, Hendrick's martini with a splash of St Germaine and blue cheese stuffed olives, prix fixe - warm beets,... More
