This restaurant has a consistent fairly priced lunch. The waiters are friendly but the front of house is surly. Why is that? Bad management. there is no excuse for discourtesy.

I was part of a group of seven (7) who braved a snowstorm to take in what proved to be an outstanding Brunch at Aquitaine Bis in Chestnut Hill, MA. The decor of this restaurant is warm and welcoming and the Brunch menu is filled with mouth watering treats that can satisfy anyone's taste. The breakfast buns are delicious, as were the biscuits and gravy. The staff is both friendly and efficient and I am pleased to report that each person at our table was completely satisfied. We will all be back for Brunch and for an evening meal as well. It will be interesting to see if the dinners here compare with those at its sister restaurant (Gaslight) in the South End. Incidentally, both places have free parking.

We have been here dozens of times and never had a meal that was not delightful. I lived in Paris for several years and find this place every bit as good as its Parisian counterparts.

Our office had our holiday party here - the food and service were excellent! The location is a little unusual, but the atmosphere was still very nice. The steak frites was delicious! Our table sampled a number of desserts, all of which were delicious, though there is one that resembles a cross between French toast and fried dough that was amazing.

This is really 4 1/2 stars, but they don't give that choice.

This is a sophisticated French bistro restaurant.

It is excellent for weekend brunch. They serve tasty freshly squeezed orange juice. The coffee is excellent and very rich.

The Bloody Mary is good and so is the mimosa.

Eggs Benoit is really Smoked Salmon Benedict and it is oustanding. The salmon pastrami is marinatred salmon. like lox. The hollandaise sauce is far above average.

The omellete with lobster and tarragon special is also excellent, but one can barely taste the tarragon. It is not cooked into the dish, but is sprinkled on at the end. Ask for extra tarragon.

The Omelette Alsacienne is one of my perenniel favorites. It is unusual with wonderful french flavors.
