AOC Ratings and Reviews
I HAD NEVER HEARD OF THIS RESTAURANT UNTIL MY CHILDREN BOUGHT ME A GIFT FOR MY BIRTHDAY. WE WERE A PARTY OF FIVE AND MY SON, IN AN EXCESS OF ENTHUSIASM, KEPT DESCRIBING EACH DISH AS IT ARRIVED WITH THE SAME WORD "AWSOME".
IT STARTED WITH THE BREAD AND CONTINUED ALL THE WAY THROUGH DESERT. I NEVER ORDER OR EAT FISH BUT AS A FAMILY STYLE DINNER I WAS STUCK EATING FISH.
AFTER A FEW BITES I COMMENTED "THIS FISH IS AWSOME" . EACH OF THE MANY DISHES WERE INDEED EXCELLENT AND I RATE THIS RESTAURANT "AWSOME".
The service, while usually steller, was terrible today. My food was cold and had to be sent back and the wait staff was inattentive. The worst part - I called ahead to say it was my wife's birthday, yet the waiter didn't mention it, or bring anything to the table to celebrate.
I go to AOC at least 10-12 a year and to Lucques a few times a year too, but the lack of decorum on my wife's birthday means you've lost a well paying customer for life.
We had an exceptional experience at this wonderful restaurant. We ended up ordering four plates to share and each one was excellent. From the Spainish fried chicken to the fingerling potatoes to the scallops and salad. We each got our own dessert and the chocolate cake was worth finishing up an nice evening. The decor and atmosphere is also very nice and helps set a great mood.
Highly recommended but fell a bit short on food taste and quality. Would have been a better value if the food was better. It almost seemed the mastermind chef behind all these wonderful dishes wasn't working and the staff they trained just didn't quite get it. Solid service and ambiance.
I booked this based off reviews on Open Table, and we were not disappointed. The Spanish Fried chicken was unlike any other fried chicken I'd tasted before. Also, I could eat the farro and black rice dish at least once a week. Definitely will come back when in the L.A. area.
We had a wonderful time and the server was very sweet. Unfortunately, he wasn't very attentive to our table. We had to ask for him twice. And it must've been a very busy night because it took quite some time for our friends entree to arrive, which was about 10 minutes after ours.
We ate at AOC a year ago and it was lovely - food, atmosphere, service. What happened? Food was mediocre, atmosphere was still good, service was just okay. Got there on time, but wasn't given anything to eat for 45 minutes. Disappointing as it was a birthday dinner..
AOC never disappoints. The menu has stayed close to the same but how can you ever get tired of wonderful choices like the Brioche sandwich? So good we had to order 2. (one for the teenager). Service is always prompt and friendly. Love the current location. Very relaxing and fun.
Food was good the ambiance was amazing. Our experience was ruined by lack of service. Our server took our order then we didn't see her till she handed us a dessert menu. She immediately dropped the check when we didn't order dessert without offering us coffee or an after dinner drink. She then failed to let us know she was leaving for the night so we sat there for awhile looking for our server because there was a fly in my friends drink and just simply felt awkward. The gentleman that finally came over to assist us was really nice but our experience was already bad.
One of my favorite restaurants. Great food, and service is beyond. Our server physically highlighted on the menu with his pen, which items were gluten free, and which could be altered to be gluten free. My work colleague visiting from NY was so impressed that he too the time, and that there were so many options for her.
The setting is lovely and the sparkling rose hit the spot. My meal was tasty and presented nicely, but my friend's avocado toast basically looked like a piece of toast with jelly in the middle of an empty plate. The ambiance of the place and a tasty dessert were enough for us to leave in good spirits.
Big reputation and spendy prices had us expecting a lot from AOC. What we got was ok, so-so, not really all that special. The drinks were good. The date appetizer was nice, but not unusual. Three small plates were unexciting. Without the sauces, you wouldn't bother. Not much lobster in the pasta.
Very busy when we were there for Saturday brunch. A large birthday party slowed down service for everyone else, but not too bad for a leisurely brunch.
Lovely atmosphere in the courtyard.
Fried chicken & cornmeal waffles are amazing!
Interesting wine list.
I took my friend to AOC and it was her first time. She loved it. We tried the DineLA menu so we had the fried chicken with romesco sauce and cheese and charcuterie plate. Then we shared the vintners plate and foccaccio turkey sandwich. We shared pot au creme butterscotch. The waitstaff are always friendly and helpful and the ambience is warm and cozy.
Very well done menu items - basically everything is delicious and balanced with color, taste, presentation
I love this place for the 'french countryside' feel of the decor - you can almost hear an accordion playing French music in the distance
Attentive waitstaff - no introduction of your food, but at least you eat in peace
Pet peeve: reaching across my plate to refill my drink glass was distracting
This was my second visit to AOC. I was lucky to be seated next to the fireplace, especially on a chilly evening. The ambiance was warm and lovely - just what I was in the mood for. Service was fair - to be specific, the waiter did not ask how I wanted my meat cooked, took a break in the middle of my meal, had another waitress take over, and extremely rare skirt steak [$20 for a small plate] was delivered to my table, as well as unevenly cooked sweet potatoes [$14 for a small plate] (some were tender, some very under-cooked). And once those two plates were delivered, the sub waitress was not available, despite the restaurant being very sparsely populated. Also, the bread they charge $2 for (tacky, in my opinion) was cold and stale. When I brought this to the waiter's attention, he apparently took the bread that was stale and just had it toasted so it wouldn't be cold anymore. Not exactly a solution for stale bread. The thing is, if you're going to charge for bread, which I already think is a bad idea - it better be REALLY good freshly baked bread - not cold, stale bread. The one good item I ordered was the bacon-wrapped dates. They were delicious.
Made rsv through Open Table Dine LA link, on arrival find out they don't have Dine LA on week end. Service too slow. On the bill they added 3.5% fee to cover health care cost to employees with out asking. I'm not sure that this is even legal. Bad experience overall.
One of the nicest brunch spots in a town chock full of brunch spots, AOC is just a great restaurant to hang out in and people watch. The cocktails are great (bartender is top notch) and food is always delicious. The servers go out of their way to make sure you are happy. Always a great time.
I took my family to AOC for brunch. We say on the patio and started out with the bacon wrapped dates and the three cheese platter with bread. Then we ordered the avocado toast, duck confit, french toast & the open-faced brioche with gruyere, prosciutto, egg and arugula - which btw was the best! Overall, the food was very good. We will definitely be back again.
