A for Atmosphere.
Such a beautiful space. Interesting sounding small plates.
The flatbreads are good. Squash salad was tasteless, green salad was uninspired, lamb-greasy, scallops OK. cauliflower, OK, fish, OK. Not a rave at our table of four.
All-in-all, it's a beautiful place to be but the food was a big disappointment.

It was my first time at AOC and my friend's first time there for lunch. We shared a salad, a sandwich, and a veggie small plate and still managed to save room for a decadent butterscotch caramel dessert. I'm looking forward to dining at AOC again.

We came for a celebratory birthday luncheon, and discovered a very nice outdoor courtyard
The service, and food were delicious, attractive presented nicely.
We all enjoyed the Spanish fried chicken, farmer's lunch and sandwiches

AOC is a lovely restaurant. The food is probably top 5 in LA. Served not pretentiously. Wonderful mix of food, all very high end. But the service is not stuffy, nor is the restaurant. It's a treasure, but not precious. If you can afford it (and it is not cheap), go and enjoy!

The food is sensational. A huge treat. What surprised us on this occasion was that our waitperson was very brusque at first, seemingly almost angry. She did warm up through the course of the evening, but then hovered as if she wanted us to leave toward the end. (There were people waiting for tables, as always.)
Still, this was an anomaly. It is a spectacular, beautiful, fun restaurant. I highly recommend it.

This was my second visit. A friend was celebrating her birthday and I wanted a nice place for the group of us to do that. Plus, it was a perfect meet up spot for all f us since we are all living in different parts of the city.
Now, for the review. I asked to be outside but it was closed for a private party. So the hostess put us in her favorite seat in the restaurant. And it sure was. It faced the whole restaurant and we were still able to look out at the patio! I server Jeff was wonderful. Checked in regularly and even changed out our coffee when we told him it was cold with problem. Great experience all around!

This is one of my favorite places to eat lunch. The food is always excellent. However, this is the first time I've had a table inside and it's a very different experience. We had poor service for AOC standards and it was extremely loud. I'm sure it was an anomaly, because every other time I've been to AOC it's delightful. The turkey sandwich, salads, breads, the iced green tea are not to be missed.
Having dined at AOC several times, we we ...
Having dined at AOC several times, we were not pleased at all with yesterday's service or meal. The service was friendly but we felt forgotten and our plates were cleared and we were brought the bill before having received one of our entrees. There were dark and light napkins on our table and the extras were not removed during the meal. It was a bummer. No accommodation or special apology was given to us about the lacking service. Food was good as always. Certainly our lunch was not what the chef has in mind for this level of dining experience.
Cheese plate was minimal. Waiter never c ...
Cheese plate was minimal. Waiter never came by to discuss what cheeses he had picked for us. Restaurant was not crowded. Hostess was excellent and very nice and accommodating. Not as good as other times we have been there.
What I appreciate most about this place ...
What I appreciate most about this place isn't the food, which I enjoyed but not everyone in my party did, is the stellar service. Our server was fantastic, the support staff was excellent. The one exception was when a second busboy/support staff, not the one who had been supporting throughout the meal, offered to combine two people's dishes that looked the same but were in fact, different, into a single box to take home. We had ordered too much food so both were barely touched. Why would such a suggestion be made when the diners were not sitting next to each other and were different generation adults? That was an odd leap.
I had requested a round table and to my surprise and delight, a round table with the right number of chairs for the entire group was ready and waiting for us. This shouldn't be surprising but lately, it really is a surprise when a restaurant really pays attention to a reservation. I would go back to AOC for that alone but the excellent service and food makes my return a no-brainer. I love this place and although I hadn't been there since they changed locations, all of my favorites were still on the menu. Love this place!

Nice place for brunch with a nice patio and fireplaces.
I started with their virgin cocktail (a mix of cucumber, green tea and Jalapenos) and it was quite tasty. Most places don't bother trying to do cool virgin cocktails so I was happy to see they had the option.
We ordered several dish to share: a farmer's plate (with ham, cheese, vegetables), avocado on toast and an extra cheese plate.
For the cheese plate you can choose between 1, 3 or 5 cheese and actually pick which one you want from their menu. A very good idea.
Butterscotch cream for desert was delicious. Keep in mind they have a sharing desert plate with 3 of their main desert - it's worth not eating too much so you have space for it.
Parking is a bit hard - we parked 2 blocks away. They have a valet on site (but $8!!)

Wonderful food and Ambiance. The service could have been better. We were seated outside and all the heaters were broken. The waitress, was great, but we all thought that she was a bit busy. All in all, a good night.

Our waitress let us down. My wife ordered a cappuccino and I ordered a cup of coffee when we ordered our food, but neither arrived until the very end of the meal. We asked the waitress four times about the status of our cappuccino and coffee order and each time we asked she said she would check, but she became quite sour the third and fourth time we asked.

This is one of my absolute favorite brunch spots. Always a good crowd and the ambience is perfect for an easy Sunday Brunch, particularly if you can get a table on the gorgeous patio. The hosts are incredibly welcoming and attentive, but the service can be slow -- not sure if this is because the wait staff is being unobtrusive. Food is always delicious. Valet parking in that neighborhood is a real plus. Simply brunch perfection.
