This is a great place for brunch or lunch in the South End of Boston. I especially enjoyed the french toast dish with bacon.

A good place for lunch when you're in the back Bay Area, and the Stephie's on Tremont is over booked, but the service was kind of slow. The food was good overall for the price and I would choose to come here again

Dinner in Boston - at a restaurant we've never visited - Aquitaine on Tremont Street. Dramatic wood features adorns the place but there are plenty of sizeable windows to admit light during daylight time. A responsive staff served us - and even researched the history of Oysters Rockefeller! Juliana was our wait person - knowledgeable and friendly. She served us... More

This lovely little south end bistro is terrific for a light lunch and will make you feel like you've been transported to a tiny french village. You may begin your meal as we did with some wonderful beverages. we enjoyed the St. Cloud and High Tea cocktails which were very refreshing. We began with an appetizer consisting of a split/peeled...

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.

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 flavorful, but I'm from Texas... More

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.
