AOC Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I came for celebratory dinner on Sunday night. The service was painfully slow and two dishes were not well prepared. It appeared that the kitchen was thrown off by demand for their LA Restaurant Week menu. Typically, AOC and the other Goin restaurants are wonderful and reliable.
A neighborhood gem! If only it were my neighborhood!!
We were visiting from our of town and enjoyed our 1st meal so much that we returned the next night!
Great Tapas portions, amazing wine list and creative cocktails! The outdoor patio is beautiful at night, but the hidden wine room is something not to be missed!
Please open one in MN!
The receptionist was not friendly in fact may be bias. We were there 15 minutes early. The receptionist refused to seat us despite there are many tables empty and available right there downstairs. She wanted us to wait until the reservation time of 6:00 pm. On top of that she let another couple came after us seated right away while we are still waiting. She took up at 6:03 to the upstairs dinning room and seated us at a table next to a wall at the blind spot while the whole room was empty with 2 tables next to the window . She then seated those window tables with people came much later.
When it come to DineLA menu, we order the main course "pork belly". The plate came with 2 pieces of pork belly. One piece was just the skin about length of you pinky, and the next piece the size of the middle finger (this size is okay except the piece consisted of 80% fat). What a rip-off for the $49 DineLA main course.
The food was great! With a group of 6 people, we were able to taste a bit of everything off the menu. The BEST part of the dinner was the dessert. I had butterscotch pot de crème with fleur de sel & salted cashew cookies, which was TO DIE FOR! Highly recommend this item for dessert, you will not be disappointed!
My favorite outdoor patio dining experience in LA. Instantly transported to Europe for the evening. You must request the patio in advance. Only about half the restaurant's seating is there. There is no bad food on the menu. If it sounds good to you it will be. Service is top rate. We ate olives and dates, followed by a grilled artichoke all with a glass of prosecco. Followed with buttery, garlicky clams, indescribable sea bass, and hangar steak which was about the tastiest hangar steak I've ever had. All delicious with a glass of Santa Barbara rose, which nicely bridged the gap between fish and meat. Or you could order a third glass to go with the steak. I couldn't since I was driving. Finished with dessert and coffee. The staff didn't forget my wife's birthday and put a candle on dessert. Unforgettable evening, even though we've been several times before. Heaven on earth.
We had a great experience at AOC. The quality of the food was excellent, the service was attentive and helpful, no rushing us. The ambienance was relaxed yet lively, friendly locale. Frankly the value for what you got was excellent, so we would recommend this charming place.
I ordered the butter lettuce main course salad with shrimp, there were 4 shrimp on top of 4 leaves of butter lettuce maybe two walnuts and two very tiny thin slice of avocado, it was to say the least, tasteless.
I used to love AOC and Luques, unfortunately, they are just riding on their name now. The total lack of imagination lack of taste was utterly disappointing. If I am paying $26.00 for a main course salad it better have taste and a relative size to it. I will never recommend AOC to anyone or ever go back there again.
Great food for sharing. Ordered 8 dishes for 4 of us, each one of us got a few bites off. Food was delicious and creative, we loved every dish. The waiter was great! He offered suggestions, even a substitution, and every dish was a hit! Would recommend it for anyone who wants to sample a bunch of delicious dishes at one seating!
The place is beautiful, outside siting highly recommended, the food taste and combination is really authentic overall exceptctations. The staff is very servicial.
One of the best brunches I've had in West Hollywood. A simple dish like the grilled blueberries bread will guarantee a great culinary experience!
Came here for a first date and it did not disappoint. Second date was discussed, think we might come right back. Our server (didn't get her name) made excellent recommendations and was such a pleasant person to speak with. Everything we ordered was incredible. The ambience was lively but did not overwhelm the coziness. Thank you for a great evening.
We have been coming to AOC since it opened (visiting at both its old and "new" location), and are always delighted to find it remains one of the nicer dining experiences in Los Angeles. The range of food in small plates means there is always a way to have both old favorites and try out new dishes (although we've never tried something we didn't then add to the "old favorites" list). The patio is lovely, but this time we sat upstairs and enjoyed that as well.
I have been to A.O.C. many times. This time the restaurant had changed significantly.
The hostess was outright rude, the food portions had shrunk in half, and the food itself had too much sauce and same old same old.
Won't be back after so many wonderful times.
I enjoyed everything about my meal at AOC. Ordered the market vegetables with chickpea purée and it was perfect in size and taste. The star of our meal was the chicken with Panzanella and green olives. What a delicious yet simple dish. The service was impeccable, couldn't have asked for a friendlier staff. Great food, service and atmosphere! Can't wait to go back
We had the most glorious Father's Day brunch here. We had a table in the garden where it was bright and airy. Our server, Sage, was absolutely wonderful and took great care of all of us. The food here is always fantastic but sitting in that garden in the middle of a beautiful sunny day makes you feel like you're in Europe.
This is always a special small plate dining experience. The outdoor patio is charming, casual and comfortable. The service is pleasant, not overly attentive but it works. If you want the pace of your meal slowed down, just ask or linger longer on the food that is on your table. The wines by the glass list has much to offer, very affordable. We've had larger pours at other restaurants for the price though, seems things have changed here. The wines by the bottle are interesting organic and sustainable wines, mostly from small wineries and seem to be pricier than they use to be. Chicken liver crostini has been a favorite of ours, as are the stuffed bacon-wrapped dates although both were a tad disappointing this visit. The wood fired egg with gruyere cheese is a very large serving, thick bread, lots of frisee and perfectly cooked egg - tasty. The portion of cauliflower was large, oily spiced. The fried chicken is tasty, with dollop of sauce. Based on past visits, our cheese plate this time was definitely disappointing, lackluster. We have been dining with AOC for 10 years, it has been one of my very favorite dining experiences and for whatever reason, something seems to have changed.
I have highlighted to AOC that me and my party was there for a special birthday, I even mentioned this 3 times, twice prior and once at the dinner. However the staff did not do anything special for us (no cake with candle or anything), yet the table next to us who was also there apparently for a birthday, did get cake with candle and a special serenade by the waiter. I was ver disappointed.
AOC is one of Suzanne Goin's restaurants, a comfy and well appointed wine bar. We made a reservation for the lovely patio, but couldn't be accommodated when we arrived. We were seated in a semi-circular booth in the dining room instead, where it was EXTREMELY LOUD.
We seemed to be an afterthought for our server, who forgot to serve wine ordered by one of my guests, and who was a bit impatient when taking orders.
Nonetheless, the food was very good. You could see how imaginative it would have been some years ago. Now it's just solid Cali-French inflected farm to table, but not great. The quality of the ingrediants was high, and the wine list remarkable.
