I've been to this location a number of times though not for a couple of years or so. It is a pleasant space; I especially appreciate that they do not feel the need to drown out conversation with music ... at least, this was the case at lunchtime. Clean restroom also a plus. I ordered the Croque Monsieur. The bread... More

Aquitaine is always a comfortable place for a nice meal. Certainly OK French-style cooking with only a few better in the Boston area. Steak frites is consistently good, with nice frites and a truffled jus. Duck is nicely medium rare. The veal is good. The wine list is a small selection of ok, overpriced wines, but just fine. Creme brûlée... More

Aquitaine touts themselves as serving traditional French bistro fare; however, the only thing authentically Parisian about it is the wording on the menu. The restaurant is certainly adequate and a very convenient "go-to" located right in a suburban shopping mall with a lot of available parking. The food reads good on the menu, but the implementation is lacking somewhat. You... More

First time at Aquitaine at Chestnut Hill, and had a very enjoyable dinner with our friends. The room is quite nice, comfortable and has a bistro vibe. Service was efficient and friendly. While the food was good, there was nothing that I could say was outstanding however, or inventive. That said, hey are striving for classic french bistro fare, and... More

I have been here several thousand times and it has always been a very good experience. Having traveled to Paris a dozen times, it is a true French menu and well prepared food. Excellent wine list. Just a very good experience every time there.

The food was good and the service was excellent. I had the escargot and the scallops. My wife had the beef and my sister had the fish. They burnt the fish and with no issue they took it back and cooked a new plate. They should have taken all the plates off the table and kept them warm while the... More

Met friends for dinner. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Service was attentive. Our food came to the table extremely quickly, which made us feel a tad rushed, as we were hoping to have a leisurely meal. The food was delicious, but the whole experience was not worth the price tag.

A friend surprised me with a birthday meal. I chose the location. We were rushed through the entire meal. Literally there for less than an hour with appetizers. Her dish arrived cold. I have been to this location several times, however will re-think in the future.

My wife and I had a fine dinner here on 24 October. We each had the French 75 cocktail and it was excellent. We split a March salad and it was very good and plenty big enough for two. I had the steak frites and my wife had the trout. We both thoroughly enjoyed and finished our dinners. A delicious... More
