Second visit and thought Again that the food just missed the mark. Not well integrated and sometimes tasteless or overly Fried or spiced. I know some people love it but I don’t get it
I haven’t been to the restaurant for dinner in a few years. I found the food was just ok on this visit. I was hugely disappointed. I had built it up to my fellow diners and they were unimpressed.
It was very noisy as well. I’ve always considered it to be a favorite dining place but I guess no more.
The food, service and atmosphere was great, but our table was in the middle of high traffic area where staff had to constantly squeeze by. It was disruptive and put a damper on all the positives.
We really appreciated the fact that they didn’t rush us, given that they were waiting to turn the table over. However we were eating as we got the dishes so it was really up to them in the end. Dinner is small plates and some were better than others. A shrimp dish tasted great but we were annoyed about having to remove the shells on a nicely composed plate with delicious sauce. Braised duck leg was the standout dish as well as a pea pancake special that evening. Definitely save rooom for the chocolate torte- alone or on a dessert plate. Great restaurant but I think I would go back for brunch again before a second dinner.
Outstanding experience - service was great and food was delicious. Timing of shared plates coming out of oven was perfect. Would for sure reccomend to a friend
the food is outstanding and excellent value. However, the wine mark-up seems quite high.
Amazing food on a magical patio in the middle of LA!
Great service, and the sea bass was exceptional!
This is one of my favorite restaurants. The waitstaff is so helpful, knowledgeble, and professional. My favorite lunch entree is a the turkey focaccia sandwich which is always delicious. For dessert I shared the pumpkin cake with icecream, pomegranates, and pepitas. The budino is also amazing. This restaurant is consistently good.
AOC is wonderful for any occasion, lunch, dinner or brunch. The food is delicious and creative
The service is excellent. I am happy to eat here any time
Everything about AOC is just outstanding, from the food to the drinks, to the service and the ambiance
I'd recommend the restaurant for any and all occasions
As always AOC never disappoints.
Food and drinks were great as usual. Service was subpar for what you’d expect at a place like this.
Outstanding wine list. Nice bar. Staff was all very accommodating.
The server Jeff was great. The food was delicious and well put together. The atmosphere was outstanding. Would definitely come back to this place.
