AOC Ratings and Reviews

Food was delicious! Our server was delightful, but overly busy creating very long delays between sitting and ordering drinks, food, dessert, etc. - and we enjoy long leisurely meals, generally. This was a little too leisurely. Air conditioning was also blasting which made the overall experience less than comfortable. Underwhelmed.

Nice lunch (my birthday) with a friend.
Best part: the diplomacy + professionalism of "Jessica" who manages
(or should be the manager) of the front of the house. Both on the phone
and in-person she was THE BEST.
If I had a restaurant (or any service-related business) I'd hire her first!

Went for lunch and tried their Dine LA menu. We left stuffed, I guess we a relight eaters. Cheese plate was good, fried chicken was delicious , roasted veggies with burrata and toast was yummy and the turkey sandwich was delicious. Glass of Rose compliments all the dishes. And outside or their patio area was perfect for the SoCal weather.

I don't know what happened. When I'd been before, it was so lovely. This time, the martinis tasted like they added bitters to them (I asked for no vermouth). The food was small in portion and ordinary. I'd had the farmer's board before and it was delightful and delicious and ample, and this time, it was disappointing. One piece of toast for all those veggies and spread and cheese? For the price, I feel like I have had many better meals in LA.

Arrogant "welcome", table was 25 minutes late, we were sent to wait in the bar and then told to "clear the service path"... Had to insist to be seated in the lower floor - meaning the main restaurant. The food was lower than average. The half chicken took 1 hour to arrive and it was terribly dry. Will not go back.

I would not recommend this restaurant.
The food was good, but it was dropped at our table by the bus boy and not by our waiter, there was no explanation as to which dish was being served, just quickly dropped at the side of the table , very poor table side service..
We had to wait 45 minutes for one of our courses . We asked to speak to a Manager?
no one came for 40 min.. We ended up leaving .

I have been here couple years ago and I really liked this place so I wanted take my friends out to AOC on saturday evening however, our server ruined our dinner he was very rude and even though he made a mistake he didn't apologize.
I had to ask to change our server.

There are some dishes I like better than others, but I've NEVER had a bad meal at AOC. Also, they were able to accommodate an out-of-town vegan in our party effortlessly, and it's now her favorite spot in LA! Two thumbs way up for AOC!

We've been to AOC over a number of years: at their original location and their new one. The food and wine list are spectacular and the service always excellent.
Since they specialize in small plates to share, we always just order a whole bunch of different things --- and in past visits the pacing was spot-on --- i.e., bring out the various orders one at a time --- as we finish up the previous one.
This time, however, they really rushed things out --- nevertheless, the food was still hot and excellent --- but the table was just a bit too cluttered at times. Still --- an excellent experience overall --- and still a favorite of ours when we visit LA.

The ambiance was great. I always loved this location. I have dined at AOC on numerous occasions and the dinners were always superb. This is the first time I've had brunch there, and it was disappointing. The ingredients did not seem to mix well, the flavors were off and the meal was not up to the standards of the restaurant's dinner menu.
I had the duck confit hash and a side of blueberry toast. The duck was decent, but most of the rest of the hash consisted of large chunks of potato. The blueberry toast tasted more like tart lemon than sweet blueberry.
My friend has the ricotta toast. The bread was stiff and hard to cut and was accompanied by soggy, uncooked onions.
We'll probably go back for dinner, but I doubt we'll be repeat customers for brunch.

It was our first time in LA and we chose to come to AOC from reviews online and we're delighted about our decision. What a great spot with absolutely amazing service and food. We will definitely be recommending this to anyone else who is travelling by.

Waiters was a little pushy when we were ordering. We needed time to review the menu as it is very unique. I ordered a small salad and a large was brought....I mentioned it immediately but waiter did not respond to making it right. I thus paid for a portion I could not eat.
HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ...
From the beginning we wanted to walk out. The hostess was not accommodating, nor was the server. we were really excited to try the food so we sucked it up and stayed. The food was good, however some of the fresh plates they gave us smelled like fish or dirty water and at that point we couldn't bare to stay there any longer. we asked for the check and left.
it if unfortunate this happened, and I hope they resolve their flaws.

I chose AOC for a Father's Day dinner based on the reviews on Open Table and Yelp. They were absolutely right...the outdoor patio is magnificent, magical and memorable. The food was fantastic. The 5 of us shared several small plates and a platter and were able to taste many delicious items including the brussel sprouts, faro with black rice, short ribs, southern fried chicken and bacon wrapped dates. Additionally, the lemon dessert was divine. And to top it off, the entire staff at the restaurant was professional, accommodating and friendly. We can't wait to return for another wonderful dinner or lunch.
***if you're making a reservation on Open Table, be sure to request an outdoor table in the "notes" section. Definitely worth it!!!

Wide variety for brunch menu items. Well-prepared plates, but had noticed that other tables who seated after us were served before ours. Servers are courteous, but at times took awhile before they returned back to the table after making a request, e.g. water re-fill, or more catsup. But overall a good eating experience under the outdoor canopy.

Service was not up to par. On a Monday night the kitchen was backed up. Our appetizer of clams took over an hour. I noticed our server kept pushing items on the menu that were easier to make as she said the oven was backed up. I'm sorry but I did not come to A.O.C just to have the cheese platter and sautéed cauliflower. Maybe they were short staffed ? On the bright side our wine bottles were amazing !!! Atleast we drank well. Once the roast chicken did come out it was so dry!! Hope they read their reviews and try to fix certain things.
