What Insiders Are Saying
A.O.C. in Beverly Grove is fancy and sexy and serves top-notch French food as well. Your sex life can thank us later.
My husbands nephew was visiting from San Francisco, and I wanted to take him to a high quality foodie destination in LA.
I dine regularly at Lucques, but read the article in LA Mag today about fried chicken, and the Spanish chicken and AOC sounded like a great option for dinner.
Unfortunately, the service was sub-standard.
We were seated at 7:30, and ordered 5 plates as suggested by our waiter. The first plate arrived within a reasonable time frame, but the Spanish Chicken dish took nearly 2 hours to arrive.
The food was good, but the service was painfully bad. We won't be returning to AOC anytime soon.
Super cute and charming with creative menu and cool atmosphere. One of my favorite places to go with friends.
Literally everything was delicious. A very special night!
I'm temporarily disabled and only semi-mobile, and AOC was helpful and solicitous so I could have an easy, enoyable night out.
Thank you for being so accommodating of my knee scooter! I saw how well the staff worked with a visitor in a wheel chair, too. Not everyone is so considerate, and those who are deserve recognition. AOC's staff is truly kind. The depth of my appreciation is very real. Thank you.
A wonderful Father's Day brunch - perfect ambiance and lovely food. Thank you!
This is usually one of our favorite spots in Los Angeles, but we were very disappointed in today’s visit. Yes, it was Father’s Day, but mediocre food and endless waiting doesn’t need to happen. The hostess was sour, the waiter was nice but not that attentive and the food (which is usually always fresh and tasty) was lukewarm, soggy, incorrect, and just bland. Not to mention what felt like an eternity after having a small appetizer of dates and toast, which were the best items we had at our meal. The men who bussed and served food were the only saving grace for this sad brunch we had for my husband. We might have to retire AOC from our usual dining roster for a bi, to get this disappointing experience out of our heads.
The food was cold especially the fried potatoes. My poached eggs were only warm and my bacon was way undercooked.
I’ve been there for dinner and have had great meals but I will not go again or recommend this place for breakfast.
We’ve been wanting to try this restaurant for some time now. We fine dine quite often. This is a beautiful restaurant but we were disappointed with everything else. The food is good. The service wasn’t. The food really wasn’t good enough to make up for the poor service. I really don’t know why these servers are so snotty!? There are so many great restaurants out there with excellent food and excellent service so I wouldn’t bother recommending this restaurant or dining there again.
Wonderful fun food, tapas style. Sat outside in courtyard for dinner, ambiance was terrific. Very solid service, only minor drawback was a 20 minute lull between courses. Highly recommend!
Absolutely delicious as always. We had a 6:00 rez for four, and when we arrived asked if we could sit on the patio, which was pretty empty. We were told there was nothing avail: they were all requested. We had a nice view of the patio and watched a a bunch of 4-tops sit empty the entire time. As we left I mentioned it, which the hostess denied.
Left a bad taste in our mouths after a very tasty meal.
This place was honestly a bit of a letdown. Sure, it has a nice European-style courtyard (with a view of a pharmacy out of the window.) It seems technically elegant, but was nothing outstanding. The food choices were underwhelming, and the salads were so basic that you would find similar or better at casual places like TenderGreens or Lemonade (which obviously aren't comparable in atmos, but just talking about the food.) Servers were fine, but knew little about the menu without checking multiple times with others. And it was wayyyy overpriced for what you got. Better places to go in my opinion, especially if you are well-traveled, this may disappoint.
I would give 5 stars if not for the fact that I booked this place for my grandma's 80th birthday brunch and the whole time a waiter only came with water once. The food was quite salty (not always a bad thing) so water was NECESSARY. It also took a very long time for our server to come take orders and check in about our needs and the check.
Great spot in LA. Great drinks!! Food very good. Service outstanding. Our server for the evening was Sage. He is awesome!!! He made it very enjoyable!!
Everything he suggested was amazing!!
We love happy hour.
Everything was wonderful but before we had a chance to look at the menu we were asked if we’d like some almonds and olives, so assumed they were complementary but when we got the bill we were charged nine dollars and six dollars, respectively. Other than that the food was delicious, and the service was excellent. I just wish it had been worded so that we knew that the almonds and olives were charged items,
The food was good but our server was very snobby. Food wasn’t as good as the price would suggest.
Always a great meal at AOC. Love their patio. Drinks are delicious. Fantastic service.
Had a wonderful experience. The service was fantastic and very welcoming. The food also tastes amazing and there are plenty of veggie options. Vegan can be a little trickier but just let your server know and they can make recommendations/ accommodations (cheese on the side, no butter, etc) and the meal is just as yummy! If you are not doing valet, parking can be a little tricky but I suggest looking at the side streets or the structure down the street. Overall, I highly recommend this spot!
We went at 3:30 and the menu was limited. But dinner is beautiful
Loved sitting on the patio. Great service and attention to allergies. Thanks!
Incredible place. Really great service and location. The food was fantastic as well.
Consistently the best restaurant in LA.
One of my favorite LA spots. Great atmosphere and awesome food always!!!
We had a large party and it was great! They were very helpful in the planning and confirming and even helped accommodate a larger party than we had originally planned for. Everyone enjoyed their meal and their experience!
Food was horrible. Coffee was horrible. Service was ok. Dishes were really dirty. Don’t waste your time not your money.
I wish that we had been seated in the courtyard. It was dismal inside.
Awesome food! You have to try the clams cooked in sherry and garlic sauce. Best dish of the night! Great ambiance, too. Our server was attentive and gave great recommendations. I thought the desserts were just okay. Nothing too special.
One of our favorite spots in Los Angeles. A.O.C. never disappoints!
They milk your wallet pretty well: asking for jelly with breakfast toast, showed up on the bill at $4. Really. Then they try to stick you with an additional 3.5% for medical insurance for the staff. We left a generous tip (we usually do) but declined the insurance fee.
It was great -- went with my mom and mother-in-law and the wait staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. All three of us felt like the menu had both a sense of adventure as well as comfort -- not easy to pull off. We also thought the drinks were great. Really felt like a night out (on the early side) but not alienating in any way.
Beautiful setting, great food, good service, lovely experience...
We have celebrated 15 out of 19 Mother's Days at AOC (and previously Orso) and have never been disappointed. This year was no exception. Outstanding server, delicious food, beautiful surroundings - ideal!
Great Ambiance, great wine selection! Server was nice and helpful. The food was amazing!!
Always delicious with great cocktails in a beautiful setting.
First time..this place is nothing special. Waiter was snooty and came with bad attitude. Ignored us the whole time.
I had another great experience at this place. Fair price for the area, the food and drinks are great, I will be back.
I've been coming to this restaurant for about 20 years and it never disappoints! My first time to their new location (well they moved 5 years ago but I lived in NYC) and it was awesome! We had Alex as our server and the food and drinks were yummy, they have a beautiful outdoor garden patio too!
We went for mothers day. Its a beautiful restaurant with $8 valet parking. The food was better than "okay", but I wouldn't call it great. You are definitely going for drinks/atmosphere.
The service was a little all over the place, we had 2 servers ask if we had been helped yet (when we already had been).
Our server also had to come back to the table to confirm our ONE dish order (we spilt a meal). She also did this to the table next to us.
The bar/bartender was amazing! We had a few drinks with him before we were seated. Over all, I would probably rate this place a 3.5 out of 5, but I'd like to go back on a day where it wasn't a "holiday".
Frustrating that they lost my reservation after calling me personally to confirm
Mother’s Day was fabulous! Service was great and food was prepared exactly as I specified, please note that I am not an easy consumer, lol!
One thing that was weak was the quality of coffee. But that is a small inconvenience.
