“Mom counts on this to impress”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

My mother, who also lives in Back Bay, takes people visiting the city or good friends on special occasions. The food is creative and wonderful, service excellent and the experience is always positive.

Innovative brunch menu, dishes perfectly executed. Excellent service even when crowded. Mimosas made with blood orange juice was awesome.

“Very happilly surprised...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I have not been there in a while and I had neglected it and boy were we happilly surprised.
The ambiance was great on a Friday night @ 8:30-9pm when we arrived. We had RSVPed on Open Table and got our A table within 10 minutes. The service was super nice and polite and the manager was @ hand. We shared the seared foie gras and it was wonderful. My wife ordered the Au poivre Filet... it was superbe.. Great cut, I believe it was a large filet mignon, that melts in your mouth and for 30$ I think it's great value. My chicken was delicious. A nice beer & wine selection and great dessert.

We eat out a lot and got somehow blase by restaurants, but Aquitaine impressed us..
Good job will surely come back again.

“Great service, ambience and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This is a must do when in Boston. The spring restaurant week menu was creative and fresh, the salmon was amazing as well as the cauliflower dish, the only disappointment was the veal. The texture was rubbery and was not a pleasure to eat. That was the only blemish on an otherwise tasty evening!
