Never had pricey food with zero flavor before. Farmers Plate veggies was very nice. Ordered Spanish Chicken, Hanger Steak and Gnocci. Beer selection for price was acceptable. Would only recommend for drinks in a cool ambience 👌🏻

Outdoor patio is incredibly beautiful.

Food was great. Two dishes were insanely good. Two were just good.

Service as solid but a little too much pressure to get us to spend more money, which wasn't appreciated.

One of my favorite spots in LA; consistently high quality food and wine, friendly service, and a charming atmosphere. The epitome of California cuisine, locally sourced ingredients in an upscale but laid back environment.

Went for dinner with a group of friends. I like the interior and the atmosphere was nice but
Food was bad steak was burnt on the outside and raw on the inside potatoes were ok but that's about it
Vine selection it's good
Did expected better service for 600$ check
We had 2 bottles of vine before we got our food
I meant 🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️about an hour of waiting
not coming back definitely

Every aspect of our evening was fantastic. As this was our first post-LockDown experience out into the real world, the exceptional nature of our dinner at AOC was particularly memorable. Food was diverse and all items were superb. The sommelier was incredible, pointing us to a reasonably priced German Riesling that was perfect.

AOC has always been one of my favorite restaurants in Los Angeles. Our post-LockDown extravaganza was perfect and memorable.

the front of house staff were really hospitable. our server felt distant but no major complaints. food was ok but servings were way too small and overpriced. bland and nothing special. i really did not like the dessert, it looked unappetizing and was not what i expected. i thought we got the wrong dessert but we ordered the only citrus dessert and the strange thing i was served was citrus flavored. i almost couldnt finish the tiny dessert but didnt want to be rude. we got hungry soon after

Maybe it's just been a while since I've visited AOC or maybe we're appreciating the dining experience as we're allowed out again post-Covid, but this was a near perfect evening. Our waiter was a delight, the food delicious and the atmosphere - even in their converted parking lot - was all that we expect from the beautiful AOC patios.

A nice place for an experience... be sure to request the indoor patio... it is a lot quieter than the outdoor patio. The "small plates" add up. Food was almost excellent... a few dishes were quite oily and heavy. Seems like the type of place you come to more for the setting than the food. Not a lot of budget options in the menu so you end up spending a lot on an assortment of small dishes.

For our first time dining on a restaurant patio since March 2020, this place checked all the boxes. It was spaced out well, the ambience was nice, the wait staff was well prepared, friendly and helpful. It was a little expensive for what it is, which is just a nice place to sit and have a drink in the sun on a lovely patio. The food didn't knock my socks off, wines by the bottle were a little pricey, but again, everything was fine. Staff and patio get an A+, food gets a C+.

Sooo I called in beforehand to see if service animals were allowed in and was told no. While I was there I noticed a woman walking in with her dog. Not cool! I understand the regulations are to keep ur mask on at the table even before getting water. And we were watched to make sure our masks stayed on. Make sure u watching everyone! Another group came in, took off their masks and nothing was said! Please treat everyone equally! Other than that food was amazing and so was our waiter!

One of the best meals we have had in LA. My wife is a vegetarian and had an amazing experience. The cauliflower, peas and fingerling potatoes were all outstanding. The Zuni chicken a the pork were also fantastic. The deserts were less stellar, but still excellent. Can't wait to go back.

Came for a birthday reservation. Excited to try after moving close to this restaurant and saved the opportunity to come for a special occasion. Being the first reservation on a Sunday evening at 5pm to arrive we asked to be seated in the left hand section courtyard and were told it was for VIPs only. Honestly if it weren't COVID, and you didn't need a reservation to get in anywhere at the moment, I would've just walked. Instead we were sat in a converted outdoor section that was ok but wasn't as charming as the interior courtyard. Futhermore, when I came inside later on to use the bathroom and looked over there was only one or two tables sat. Obviously they were very important....

The service was great, the drinks we reasonable and the food was tasty. Overall I'm still left with that VIP comment in my head and honestly whilst I'm sure they won't miss my money I can't say I'll be a hurry to return either because of that comment. I'm undecided if I'd return which is sad as I live close and it is a place I'd frequent if it weren't for that experience.
