These are small delicious plates you can share with your table. We ordered 4 dishes for 2 people plus dessert and it was filling. Not to overwhelming. Everything was delicious. My favorite plate was the gnocchi with lobste.

Our reservation was at 830 and we weren't seated until after 9. Service was a little slow and we had to track the waiter down for our check. Food was good. The bacon wrapped dates were amazing

I’m sure it was made better by the fact that my wife paid for it long distance much to my surprise. But I have been to a.o.c. before for a private party and this was the first time where I just came in for dinner. Everybody is a pro

Absolutely phenomenal! Every dish was to die for. Loved the tapas style and being able to sample a little bit of everything. I think we tried half of the menu that night with our group of six and there was nothing that wasn’t mind-blowingly incredible! The ambience was gorgeous as well. We were on the outside patio, which was divine. I also saw the inside, with the big fireplace, and can’t wait to go there in the winter when COVID is over! Will definitely be returning and have already told several people they have to try it!

The food, the service, the drinks...all wrong.

It’s too bad as the ambiance is nice but who cares for that when the food, drinks and service don’t parallel.

On to the next experience...

A perfect place to dine. Not only is each dish exquisite, but also the tasteful cuisine blends together to tantalize your tastebuds. Paired with a special wine of your choice, the experience is delightful.

One of our favorite restaurants! Since it first opened in 2002 it has continued to have the highest standards in food quality and service. Very glad they have survived during Covid and figured out how to make it work. Beautiful outdoor patio, safe, and enchanting.

A.O.C. took all the appropriate precautions for COVID. Our server was a rather absent-minded (never refilled water until we finally got his attention at the end of the night, we had to wave him down to get more wine, then finally asked someone else for it). The food, however, was terrific as was the staff that greeted us, served us wine before being seated, and were super friendly and informative about our seating time.

Service was very very poor. Even though it’s Covid you still need to provide hospitality. Our server did t suggestively sell or make any recommendations on food or beverage choices. He Barry ever returned to the table after we ordered. The food on the other hand was very very good. Kitchen did an amazing job. FOH needs to get repolished.

Following placing our food order, our table was only checked on once by our server. Bussing was on point. Food was solid, no real complaints, but nothing stood out. Server was not able to make wine recommendations and was visibly uncomfortable when we asked questions regarding the menu. For what we paid, this experience was not memorable and we won’t be returning any time soon.

During dinner out of the blue there were a number of flies throughout the patio that were swarming the plates. Given we had been here before and never experienced this, we decided to stay and finish our meal. The food was excellent as always, but it was seriously a challenge fighting off the flies. Overall, as the sun set it was slightly more tolerable. I still highly recommend this place, but just an unfortunate evening.
