This is a wonderful restaurant. I've been here about four times now and never had a bad meal. The food is wonderful and so is the service and atmosphere.

Lovely meal at Aquitaine in early August. Service was top-notch, friendly and informative. Beautiful decor. Food was quite good and mostly quite authentic. I was surprised at how American its cocktail menu was (no real French aperitifs listed) and certainly the portion sizes are triple what one would find in France, but when in Boston, eat as the Bostonians do, I suppose. The pissaladiere was excellent. Not as expensive as I expected, and although the wines are pricey, they're very good.

A favorite, reliable choice for a special dinner with French-style food, in a lovely, historic Boston neighborhood. Hard to bring myself to order anything other than the excellent steak au poivre with gratineed potatoes, although other dishes have also been great. Friendly, helpful, professional, non-snobby service. Lovely cozy space.

Cons: We really enjoyed it; no cons we can think of.

The South End location offers a beautiful setting and delicious food and good service. We had an anniversary dinner there and thought we were back in France. This is a nice special occasion kind of place.
