Aquitane Chestnut Hill recs?

Although I lived nearby for many years my husband and I never visited Aquitane in Chestnut Hill.

I have plans to go there for dinner this weekend. Are there any must haves or must avoids I should know about?

Thank you.

  1. I find everything to be pretty solid here; they're good about intelligently not setting the bar too high, then clearing it without any trouble. All the bistro classics are tasty: steak frites, seared scallops, French onion soup, etc.

    1. I think the pumpkin bisque is disappointing, kind of bland. The mushroom ravioli are good. The apple tarte tatin swims in a sauce that's too sweet.

      1. I have found each of 3 trips there very disappointing. My last memory is of inedible ravioli, squash I think.

        1. The warm sliced beet and goat cheese salad. My favorite thing on their menu. The steak Frites and Mussels too.
