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.
We had a great DineLA menu here the other night and the waiter was fantastic. Recommend!
Nice place,diversity options of wine
Mostly a wine bar, with "limited food sources"
Salads, app plates, burgers
Brunch menu looks worth a try?
I used to love this place. I do love the wine and I thought the service attempted to be great, but with the whole Dine in LA menu, the kitchen was slammed. It took an 40 mins from when we sat to get our charcuterie. An hour for salads. And two hours later, we received our entrees. Further, I had made a note that is was my husband's birthday dinner, to which went completely unmentioned. AOC still has the great wine selection it always did, but I felt the overall experience lacked. I mean, I was pretty hungry for about and hour and fifteen minutes of a two hour dinner. That's kind of crazy.
My wife and I had GREAT evening! We got a wonderful table that I requested by the fireplace, our waitress was sweet, enthusiastic and knowledge. The food presentation and taste were EXCELLENT! All staff was attentive but not intrusive. We can't wait to go back!!!!
Casual environment with sophisticated food. Probably could use a little facelift.
The food was amazing, and the restaurant was great - even delicious cocktails. The service was a bit slow, but, they were pretty busy. The night was pretty much off to a bad start as the two ladies at the front door were pretty rude and had a lot of attitude. Not a real great first impression.
Tried this place for the first time, great place to take a date...food, ambiance and service were all excellent. It the prices were "reasonable" by LA standards.
Excellent meal! Really enjoyed the spiced lamb skewers and the clams from the wood oven. The seasonal pea salad with English peas, snap peas and mint was outstanding. We were seated indoors but near the open patio doors, so we got to enjoy the warm breeze. Our waiter was great. I would definitely come back.
AOC was fantastic for a casual date-- had amazing ambiance, incredible shared plates, and a plethora of drinks to choose from. Our server was incredibly helpful in selecting a good wine, and the highlight of the meal was the Spanish Fried Chicken (of course), the gnocchi, and the young broccoli.
I can't wait to come back!
Loved it, food was phenomenal
First date night out after the baby, beautiful experience, earthquake and all!
Great atmosphere. But the food was too heavy and the cocktails were too weak.
AOC is one of my favorite restaurants in Town. The server was excellent and the food was so good as usual.
Spanish fried chicken and clams are exceptional, desserts are a little pricey
a great dining experience.. great vibe lovely on the patio.
The patio has ventilation issues. It is beautiful but sitting there in the day is almost like sitting in an oven. The food was good although the prices for wine are excessive.
The food, service and ambiance were all predictably wonderful. Sitting on the patio on a summer evening eating the wonderful, creative food is about as good as it gets.
Had lunch in the patio and it was really a wonderful experience. Never disappointed.
AOC is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always delicious, creative, and varied. The waitstaff is personable, helpful, and dedicated. The ambience is cozy and charming. A great dining experience.
Waiter needs to stop up-selling. It’s extremely transparent. $8 for those arugula ice teas is a joke. Menu was boring and not as good as usual. I come here often, but will probably not be coming back. Tired of the up-selling.
lovely and charming inside and out, great atmosphere combined with good service and good food ~ not to mention how romantic!
Amazing waitress and food!
Great food and service. The courtyard/patio is AMAZING
Went for a first date, and couldn’t have made a better decision! It was an incredible ambience, delicious food, and our server was just spot on. Highly recommend to anyone, any day.
Food was excellent and our waiter was very attentive without being overly attentive!
Birthday dinner was amazing
Delicious as always. One of my most frequently go-to places to eat. Restaurant is just as good as the day it opened. Only negative is the martinis are in very small glasses.
I have dined often at AOC, and for a reason. In general, I enjoy the dinner menu more than the lunch menu, as it's more small plate tapas style. The dinner on June 19 was particularly outstanding. The server, Sage, was just amazing - super friendly, attentive, extremely well informed about the menu and helped with a perfect wine pairing. The food was great, with special note of the hangar steak, black cod, grilled artichoke, cherries/avocado/etc salad. If ever in need of private function space, the upstairs room is lovely, holds about 20, and has been a perfect venue for corp dinner functions.
awesome food, awesome service,
The location is great and the food was delicious! Cool vibe outside on the patio.
Wonderful meal tonite everything was delicious from the bacon wrapped dates to the fried chicken, hangar steak melted in your mouth the roasted chicken platter and the peach upside down tart with sorbet and ice cream wow wow wow!
Great friendly service Jeff! First tine out on the patio, what a beautiful night for it, truly a special treat,
Thank u AOC
Everything was exceptional except the cocktails. I appreciate the attempt to try unconventional combinations but ultimately, a cocktail should taste like something more than experiment in mixology for its own sake.
One of the best restaurants in Los Angeles....the Ode to Zuni chicken is the best!!!
Good food. Patio seating was conducive to conversation. One of the waiters was flat-out rude.
It's amazing. Stop reading my review and go.
The food was nothing u usual. Hamburger was dry but the french fries, pickled cucumbers and lettuce and tomato was delicious. Turkey sandwich h was good. Nice wine list
Delicious brunch with excellent service!
To be honest, the food and service were very good, but I find it inconceivable that a restaurant of this caliber finds it acceptable to allow patrons to dine in soiled seats?! All of the seat cushions I saw were disgusting. It really set the tone for our dining experience.
The BEST. This restaurant is incredible !! I can’t wait to go back.
