Amazing birthday celebration. Would not have gone any other place.
Despite the challenging circumstances the staff was upbeat friendly efficient and the food was delicious as always. We chose AOC as our last night out during our effort add ‘no social contact’. Glad we did! Kudos to a great staff. Thank you
The food was really fantastic, especially the sweet potatoes. We got three dishes plus bread and felt that was plenty for the two of us. The indoor patio is also a really cool area - it has an outdoor feel but indoor warmth. We loved it!
Perfect as always! We had another spectacular dinner at AOC. Love the Dates, Clams, Duck, Hanger steak, and in the veggie section you have to get the farro (I am GF intolerant and no issues) and the cauliflower is a must. Keep up the great work AOC!! We love you!
Outstanding service by Sage! Food and wine incredible as always. Always order extra food for leftovers - especially farro!!
Nice atmosphere and good service. Food is ok, not all very tasty but some like the fish is really nicely done. A bit expensive for the portion size
Excellent presentation, had turkey panini without bread. The fries were perfect skinny with skin on
Vintners platter had high quality cheese, cold cuts and pulled pork pate which was unbelievably delicious.
The blood orange non alcoholic drink was good if a little spicy
Loved Sage the waiter
The food is not as good as it's reviewed to be. I found the food just ok, nothing special. I would go back because it's a nice environment. The apple tart desert was awful.
SIMPLY THE BEST! The food the drink the service the ambience...,perfection!
Everything was great tonight, the cocktails at the bar excellent the atmosphere was cool and relaxed. Our waitress was great and very helpful with placing our order as it was tapas. No complaints about any of the food and we especially loved the halibut and the bacon wrapped dates. Prices were reasonable, we will definitely go back!
I had dined with you a few times before. My wife and I were seeing two couples we had not seen in a while. We were having a great reunion with a lot of laughs. Our waitress, Leah, kind of put a damper on our mood very early in the evening. I was joking about the bartender’s name, Christiaan, having two A’s. This was all being done in the spirit of fun. Leah indignantly responded, “Well he is German.” She brought our drinks and then kind of disappeared when it was time to order. She never informed us she was going on her break. After we had waited some time to place our order, a new server, Alicia, informed us that Leah went on break. Her service was very good and she was more attentive. The food was wonderful… It could’ve been more wonderful if we could see it! The lighting in the room was ridiculously low. My wife and I dine at many of LA’s top restaurants and we always have a congenial and warm relationship with our servers…even the bus boys! This was not our experience at A O C this time.
So tasty. If you enjoy cocktails, this is a great place to get a drink. Wine list is great too.
Everything considered, we totally enjoyed AOC. Olivia, the hostess, was charming, and the waiter very helpful. Martini was excellent, but bartender should fill the glass to the top. Att their prices, 3/4 full is not appropriate Very noisy though. Doubt that anything can be done about that.
Will return soon.
Always a pleasure. Amazing staff. Great vibe. Good food
Food was top tier and the ambience was perfect. The service started out great but once our order was taken, it really fell apart. Hopefully it's a one-time thing. I'll still go back.
We have eaten at aoc many times and it never disappoints. Amazing food, fun atmosphere and top notch service.
Excellent restaurant! Will definitely go back next time I'm in LA. Love the small plates - it was fun ordering several different dishes and sharing with the table. Wine was fabulous too and the server was friendly and helpful.
I mentioned my birthday but didn't have any surprise or attention... disappointed.
lovely patio with good service. Recorded music is too loud, but good country French cuisine.
Good food and atmosphere. The tables by the bar are not as nice as the ones outside.
Racial bias in table seating
The food was outstanding, as expected from Goin’s team. Inventive, tasty, beautifully prepared. The service, less so. On a Monday night with a partially full house our waiter didn’t seem to be able to keep track of us. Very slow, and then our dishes came out in succession even though we made it clear in our ordering that we weren’t in the sharing mode. He didn’t tell us there would be 20 minutes between each dish, so that we ate one after another. Very annoying. The new space is attractive and has a good vibe. One could wish it were a bit quieter, like Lucques, but that’s the modern world. Overall, really good, but be prepared to ask that all be served at once, if that’s how you want to eat. Otherwise, the table will be sharing one small plate at a time.
AOC provides high-level comfort food. For breakfast, I ordered a hash, but this was unlike anything I had ever eaten under that name. And better. Same goes for the dinners, in my experience. When your food comes, you will be surprised--and reliably, pleasantly surprised. Reasonably interesting people-watching also.
From the moment we walked in it felt like we were in a great place. We were greeted with a small from the hostess, and even though we were 15 minutes early they sat us right away.
The server was very helpful, although not sure why we didn't get a decanter for our wine, but still she helped us out with ordering and made some fine suggestions.
Overall, a really good time.
As always, service and food were outstanding! We asked for a patio table and they were able to accommodate our request! The gnocchi was the biggest hit but everything we ordered was great. Our server also helped me select a lovely wine from their list! Looking forward to returning.
A great place for a lunch or dinner. Food excellent as are drinks. Outside dining on 3rd St doesn't get any better
Really like this place the two times we've gone. Every course was delicious. The Farmer's Plate of charred vegetables and hummus/cheeses is so good. The salad was excellent. We got the hanger steak (cooked to perfection with a rich sauce), the duck (also in a very nice sauce), and the fra diavlo shrimp which had this really good, funky cornbread pudding type of thing accenting it. Maybe the only disappointment was desert. The Butterscotch pudding is one of a kind, but the chocolate cake on the desert platter tasted a day old, as did all the other little confections that come on it. But still, a really great restaurant with a nice ambiance. Also, the specialty cocktails are really good here.
Came for lunch with my friends. You couldn’t get a more beautiful restaurant and the staff was amazing! The lunch menu is somewhat limited. You’re either getting a salad or a dinner type entree— so, if you don’t eat gluten and want more than lettuce, expect to pay $35+, without alcohol.
AOC continues to hold itself to the highest standards for service, food quality, and ambience. I fondly remember the old location and still love the "new" one. Our food was perfect, and the staff stood out especially for how they took care of us service wise. There is a reason the restaurant continues to succeed in this town of bright "flashes in the pan."
Service was first rate--greeting was authentically friendly, the waiter was knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and attentive. The food was excellent on each item--it is just that with the "tasting menu" that the main courses (so to speak) were a little smaller than I had hoped. The portion of the halibut and beef cheeks being a little small is the only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 total stars. Salad was excellent and fine to share for two. The dessert of butterscotch pot de creme was delicious and the cookies that came with it made the dinner top rate. The physical place is lovely. The crowd was very happy at each table. I would definitely go back again knowing that it is a sizable investment.
The wine and decor were perfect!
The food was amazing!! The ambiance was perfect for me and my boyfriend’s 6 year anniversary. The portions are pretty small for the price but the flavor more than makes up for it. The service was great as well! Definitely recommend.
Best service in Los Angeles. Also best drinks, wine list, food.
As always, AOC is beautiful to look at with exceptional service and outstanding food, cocktails and wine.
First time there. My wife is vegetarian. I’m not too far off. A lot to choose from. Everything we had was good to better.
Loved it food was exquisite
Food was fantastic. Service was good.
