A word from AOC
We've MOVED! Our new address is 8700 W. 3rd Street & George Burns Drive. A.O.C. is a small plates restaurant driven by seasonal ingredients, locally sourced. Our California French cuisine was developed by Chef Suzanne Goin, and has some Mediterranean influences as well. We have 24 wines by the glass and 150 bottles to choose from, curated by Caroline Styne, all of which are either organic, biodynamic or sustainable. And now, featuring a full bar with premium spirits and specialty cocktails. Reservations are encouraged. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Great food and service. Presentation and plates were also nice. Very friendly owners and staff. I had the Angus burger it was delicious:"

  • "AOC never disappoints. Everything was unique and delicious. If you haven't been, don't wait."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "We were seated on the patio at a tiny table tucked between many others and away from the very vibrant bar scene in the main dining room. Once we figured out how to order we settled for four tapas and not our waiters recommended five - Four tapas were perfect for us - I especially liked the cucumber mint salad and the clams, not so sure about the soft shelled crab. Our desert, the bread pudding came with a lit candle which allowed me to sing a private happy birthday to my hubby. All in all a lovely evening."

  • "Decent food, very heavy dishes. ingredients were fresh....but not wowed by anything, just ok. 2nd time here."
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "Our servers were totally in tune with of our group of 6 ladies. They were polite and responded quickly and happily to all our requests including for a quiet, round table. We shared the Indian Chicken salad as a starter - enough for 6 to have a small serving. It was so delicious that we all said we'd return and have it for the main course. We shared various paninis and paninolas (?), all very tasty. The coffees were very good, but the best was the butterscotch pudding desert, just like our Mom's made years ago. We weren't rushed through our meal, even though the restaurant was very busy. We actually had to ask for the check, a pleasant change from most restaurants these days."

Magical black kale, delicious grilled peach salad, yummy fried chicken, fantastic duck cassoulet. And - butterscotch pot de creme extraordinaire!! It was a beautiful evening. Thank you!"

  • "I've heard a lot of great things about AOC so I went to check out the hype. It was fantastic! One of the best meals I've had in a while. The setting, the service and the food were all incredible. I'm still dreaming about the peach salad, fried chicken and clams."

  • "AOC is one of my "go-to" places in Beverly Hills. Great wines, delicious food, spacious bar, beautiful outdoor terrace. This place is a real find."

  • "Great food and service. Who can complain about a bottle of cold rose and a plate of roast chicken at an outdoor table on a beautiful evening"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Friends visiting from the East Coast wanted to go to an LA Triple D restaurant. A.O.C. was listed with unique bites and best ever categories. In no way did A.O.C. disappoint. We dined on the patio and it was pleasant with little restaurant noise but just a bit of street noise. Our entries included the Flaked Albacore and the Soft Shell Crab. Both were prepared with a distinctive but not overwhelming blend of flavors. For dessert we had very inventive and flavorful sweet treats. We ordered a creme fraiche sponge type cake with fruit and pistachios and a frozen cake with raspberry and apricot frozen layers. Both were very balanced in fruit flavors and sweetness--a delight. Service was attentive and well informed."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "My husband and I have been to A.O.C. many, many times, and we recently took some of our best friends for dinner there. We each ordered a different entrée and several appetizers to share. I ordered the roast chicken platter, my favorite dish. I have ordered this same dish probably a half dozen times before. We were told that the chicken and one other entree would take about a half hour to prepare. Well, all of the entrees were brought at the same time, except mine. Everyone sat there politely waiting for my entrée to arrive, but after about 10 minutes, I finally told my guests to please start eating. I sat and waited, but by the time my chicken finally arrived, everyone was completely finished. This was infuriating and embarrassing."

  • "Every dish was interesting and prepared well. A real go-to place for exceptional food."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Overall this place is great. We frequently done at AOC. Brunch was delicious but the service was off. Right off the top they offered us blueberry bread which we ordered but it never came. Then after a good 30 minutes, all our food came at once including salads and main courses AND the blueberry bread! All the food at AOC is amazing but it seemed that they were understaffed. Will still go back- just hope they have better service next time."

  • "This is one of our favorite restaurants for an outdoor evening. The food is really delicious and the ambience is wonderful."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We sat on the patio next to the fireplace, swooningly romantic. It was late, we weren't that hungry, so we ordered all small plates, the corn, avocado and rajas salad, a soft shell crab with fried green tomato and green Romesco, and debated whether we should have the duck cassoulet with fresh shell beans or pappardelle with chanterelles. . . The waitress talked us into the cassoulet, which was lovely, with duck confit and house made duck sausage and much lighter than the usual. A glass of luminous Provençal rose put me over the top. All I can say is Suzanne Goin STILL has it going on-- her food is comforting and familiar without being boring; sophisticated, rustic, robust and delicate all at once."

  • "We had a great night at AOC. We were a group of four and half way through the dinner we wanted to change tables since we were getting a little cold sitting outside- although the restaurant was fully booked they managed to get us another table. Concerning the food: AMAZING! Great taste, sort of tapas style for everybody to share, good sized portions!!Nice variety of dishes: farmers plate, veggies, steak, figs wrapped in baked ham, and great olives to start with...! Very Nice staff, great atmosphere. All in all a very nice place to which we will be coming back again and again!! Thank you for a great night! Also: check out the bar- nice cocktails and bar feeling."

  • "Noisy, noisy, noisy! Impossible to have a conversation without screaming. Food is excellent, especially the Zuni chicken. But very unpleasant with the din."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "have now gone several times to aoc. it seems to just miss being wonderful. the front is very good as are the cocktails. the wait staff is efficient but has each time suggested we order too much, ie 3 plates for each person. it is best to order a few plates and then more if still hungry. liked the squid but the zuni chicken is not up to par. the vegetables are very good and the deserts hit or miss. the patio is one of the best in town. it is at best a b plus which ain't bad. again, front, patio, cocktails is what makes it special."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "AOC is the one! I have been there this week alone for work, pleasure, day and evening. Truly special yet simple food."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "AOC is a great place to have a wonderful meal. I particularly love the farmer's plate which is composed of two spreads, i.e. chickpea and sometimes roasted pepper or eggplant, burrata cheese and some roasted vegetables of the season. I like sitting outside on the patio - it feels like I'm in another country!!!"
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Lived up to all the hype. Superb menu & wine selections. Bacon wrapped dates. grilled peaches salad, duck & bean cassoulet, soft shelled crab, pork belly all masterfully prepared. We were seated in front of the cozy fireplace. Very enjoyable evening!"

  • "Loved the bar scene, great drinks. Food was awesome, small plates, interesting choices."

  • "We had a wonderful time tasting various glasses of wines and little plates of good food. We would be there still if we hadn't gotten too full. We'll be returning."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Our first visit at this location: a lunch for four foodies. The restaurant did not disappoint.Food was good -- a tiny bit below great -- and the service friendly to the very edge of being over-familiar. We sat indoors. A very pleasant room. The outside patio is right on third street and the sound of buses going by was a bit much."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • " I would only go back if I could sit in the patio, and since they won't promise you a table, it's 50/50 it will happen. It doesn't matter if you are celebrating a birthday/anniversary etc. they only put the regulars at the good tables. You will be disappointed."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "It was an AOC birthday for me this year -- first the cookbook and then the restaurant. I remain delighted with both and love the way Suzanne writes about how food has shaped her experience over the years. Believe her when she says her food ideas are constantly changing -- the pistachio aillade in the restaurant was very different from the one I made from her recipe -- although both were delicious."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "I have been hearing about A O C from my girl friend for quite a while and finally went. Eating outside was beautiful as we were protected from street noise. the food was very nice. Used to dinner sized small portions, though told they were larger at lunch. we ordered probably more than we should have as portions were generous though tasting 3 different entrees was fun. The chicken/waffle combination lived up to its reputation. The Indian salad was also nice though a lighter touch on the dressing would have been better. All in all, a delightful Sunday brunch."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Food is great. Delicious brunch menu. Beautiful patio garden. I just don't like the service. The lady was not cheerful nor warm even before I paid."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "We had requested the patio. While we completely understand that restaurants cannot always accomodate seating preferences, we were greeted by an unfriendly hostess who did not acknowledge our request and simply walked us to one of the worst tables in the place right at the entrance near the restroom. When we asked if there was something else available, she merely shrugged and said, "this is all there is." We declined the table and asked to wait for something better, and she huffed back to her stand and ingnored us by pretending to talk on the telephone. She should have at least asked us if we would like to wait for something else. We had to ask the manager to seat us after we found a vacant table."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Some absolutely outstanding dishes. The patio at night is an ideal dining environment. Tom, our server, was simply outstanding - friendly, knowledeable about everything on the menu and wine list; made excellent recommendations. Will definitely go back."

  • "We were coming for the dineLA deal, just to find that the restaurant ended it a day earlier. For the regular menus prices were extremly high. We stayed anyways after paying 6 dollar for the valet . The steak and eggs plate was great, but 23 dollars for it is steep. The chicken and wafer was ok. The salad was drenched in dressing, for 11 dollars it was a micro plate with quatre of avocado and a tiny butternut lettuce. Really?"
