Is a beautiful space very elegantly designed. We had the special restaurant week menu. Service was excellent. We were made to feel very welcomed and absolutely not rushed. I had the gnocchi which was lovely and then the chocolate mousse which really enjoyed. We indulged in a great bottle of wine with seemed quite reasonable. The valet parker person had... More

We went there for breakfast. The place seems to be very popular. The food was pretty good though a bit pricey. The service was fast and very attentive.

I went for dinner with a friend at her recommendation as it was in her neighborhood and she had not been there since the recent renovation. I was happy to find a very appealing building with a friendly bustling bistro atmosphere inside. I was shown to our table by a friendly manager to wait for my friend. Our waiter, Jon,... More

I moved to Italy a couple of years ago, so whenever I come back to the States I try to get my favorite breakfast: Eggs Benedict. I am so glad my friend suggested this place. They were probably the best I have ever had. Nice setting, good service. Just stay away from Bellinis and Mimosas: they were not that great.... More

My friend and I went there for a Saturday morning breakfast. It was surprisingly empty at 9:00 in the morning for the quality of food we were given. The french toast was the best I ever had and the fried egg was cooked to perfection. Our waitress was kind and the price was very reasonable for how good the food... More

Aquitaine – Boston, MA – 8/1/2016 This is my fourth Aquitaine group restaurant location visit. Each locations décor is a bit different however one common thread shared by all is exceptional customer service and Attention To Detail… At this point I have a certain level of expectation and these people exceeded it. The Boston location just underwent a major renovation.... More

Wow where do I start! After a terribly hectic and stressful afternoon in traffic driving to Boston, checking into our hotel and rushing to make our 7pm reservation we couldn't have been happier with our evening at the Aquitaine restaurant! First we were seated quickly by the hostess which was nice, but then to our surprise a staff member came... More

From the very cordial welcome and goodbye from the manager, to the excellent food and service, we are happy that Aquitaine has reopened after renovations. The interior is very bistro with a modern twist. The Sancerre rose we ordered was truly special. The mussels we split as an appetizer were stellar - some of the best I have ever had.... More

Staying in South End

Neighborhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
