AOC Ratings and Reviews
Unfortunately to food at AOC (especially the brunch) has really gone downhill. While the restaurant was one of my favorites with a great vibe and nice menu, I don't think I'll be going back. The food at last two dining experiences has been awful. Both times the entree dish consisted of 60% potatoes. Food was greasy and tasteless. The wine list has also gotten very "eclectic" (nothing I really recognize) and VERY expensive. The place still has a great vibe, waiters are attentive but what's a restaurant if the food isn't good?
The food was great, especially the whole fish grilled with a nice touch of coconut rice. We also had a great time people watching. Most especially we were impressed with our waiter who did a superb job of presenting our food and wine. He carried out his job with, I don't know a better word but grace.
Always a great meal here. Tonight the food stopped coming in the middle of dinner - it was a good 20 minutes before the plates came out again. That is rare - usually it comes out one after another like clockwork. Oh well - still a great dinner and always a pleasure to visit AOC.
I was there for Sunday brunch. The menu was OK. It was CA style, I'm accustom to NYC and they are different. The food pricing was reasonable but their wine prices are seriously expensive. I don't think there was a single bottle for less than $50. The eggs I ordered were about $16.
I went here for brunch with significant other. The food was good but not sure why everyone raved about the fried chicken or French toast. definitely good and well worth the price but didn't live up to the 10/10 description I often hear. The building is beautiful though and the value is excellent. Maybe I'll have to try it for dinner.
Came here for Sunday brunch with a girlfriend of mine. She had the chicken and waffles, and I had the AOC brioche with prosciutto.
The chicken and waffles tasted considerably better; the waffles tasted like corn bread and melted in my mouth. The chicken was really crispy and juicy.
The brioche bread was drenched in cheese, so it was a bit on the salty side. Also, too much salad just dumped on top of the meal.
Overall, food was good, but not spectacular. I'd be open to dining here again (maybe for dinner). Perfect place for a date or casual get together with friends.
It's never disappointing at AOC...they have their act together from the moment you walk through the doors you are greeted by welcoming hosts. The waiters and servers are equally as nice. And then there is the food. It is all amazingly delicious. Mostly we order small plates to share. They come out of the kitchen at a perfect pace. The beet salad was so fresh. The scallops were perfectly cooked, exactly the right sear and my fork glided easily into one for the first bite. We also enjoyed the arctic char and the squid directly from the wood oven. All I can say is I cannot wait to go back.
Beautiful experience and a great night! It was my birthday and I wasn't sure if the weather would be right for our outdoor table. The staff said they'd be happy to move us inside but first showed me our perfect patio table, next to a heater, and offered pashmina scarves for chilly shoulders and legs. Perfect! The food was outstanding, delicious, and comfortable. Nothing felt pretentious, just charmingly and effortlessly chic. Highly highly recommend. (Came for birthday dinner with parents, brother, and boyfriend. All enjoyed.)
Another perfect lunch at AOC! Even though the day was quite warm, the shaded patio was a lovely temperature, and it is one of the most beautiful in town, as well. The bacon wrapped dates are the perfect salty snack to whet your appetite, and the lemon zest butter with the toasted blueberry bread - I could have eaten that all day! Our waiter was attentive without being overly so - we'll be back!
Our first dinner at AOC was fantastic....wonderful service and the food was delicious. On our way home from a long trip abroad, we made a list of the food in LA we were craving ...AOC was near the top of our list. Unfortunately our server couldn't be bothered.
While we were "greeted" within a few minutes of sitting down, there was no greeting or welcome. She asked if we had been there before and then told us, "great, so you know the drill" and pushed us to order food within just a few minutes of sitting down, skipping over wine or cocktails . While I did manage to slow her down enough to order a glass of wine, she didn't seem to catch on.
She was barely able to finish her sentences each time she walked away from our table, she only smiled when we left. I tried to encourage her by chatting with her, smiling at her when she spoke, I asked her her name but it's not my job to make her feel comfortable.
The food was still great, but we didn't have a chance to really choose what we preferred because she was rushing us so much.
We had Easter Brunch and it was lovely! The service was just ok due to our waiter going missing a few times for 20 minutes or more. I was out of water, had to flag him down to order, and I had to get another waiter to finalize our bill after he was no where to be seen for a very long time. The restaurant was not overly packed or else I'd give him a break. Otherwise, all other staff was very attentive and friendly.
