Dined here for New Year’s Eve. It is one of my favorite places - always a good experience. Great service, quality food and lively atmosphere. My “go to place” - be it for a special occasion or a random Tuesday.

Loved this restaurant. It was a cold and snowy night. The food was amazing and the drinks were good. We loved our waitress Stephania. Can’t wait to go back.

I had the Bœuf Bourguignon, others in the party had the Cod, Filet Au Poivre, and the Salmon. The food was very good. The food was more of an American version of French dishes.

It had been years since I’d had a proper meal at Aquitaine, but after sporadic visits to the handsome bar I decided it was time to check out the dining room side of things. Relatively-recently renovated, the restaurant feels rejuvenated, and late on a Saturday...More

We were in town to visit family and happened to be our anniversary and my son heard that this would be an elegant, nice place, and it WAS. Great service, good wine list, satisfying food, in a calm atmosphere. Highly worth the cost!
