The food was high quality, interesting and satisfying. The service was disappointing and ordinary. The wine list was okay but too many cheap wines with high prices. Love the atmosphere. They have the potential to become a first-rate restaurant, but it isn't there yet.

We had an early reservation before the theater. The room is inviting – the dark wood, long bar, and white tablecloths give it the feel of an upscale French bistro. The bar is very well stocked, which gave two of our diners a chance to...More

I had this expectation of a 1st class dining experience. It was less. This was a business dinner for 4. So I was less that direct with the wait staff. First of all, he led us to a table that was near the front door....More

I went there with my friend today to try their Brunch menu. Too good a deal to miss. For $12, you guess a cinnamon bun, a glass of fresh squeezed juice, coffee and omelette of your choice. Staff was very friendly and very attentive. Enjoyed...More

My team and I chose Aquitaine for their late-served Saturday brunch, and inexpensive French-inspired fare. We arrived about 5 minutes early for our late afternoon reservation, and due the tiny, near-filled to capacity space, we had to wait outside in the rain for our table...More
