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.

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.

I usually love this restaurant, but it appears as thought there have been some changes to the menu. My tehachapi salad was too bitter and the egg prosciutto brioche is no longer on the menu. Overall, not a satisfactory lunch especially for the price.

Very surprised by (disappointing) quality of food. Too much salt on entree (cod) and vegetable (saffron peas). Wow-enough to raise your blood pressure. I ate the dishes because I did not to wait for it to be redone...AOC compensated by taking off the final bill...and handled the my comment on food very graciously.

Entree had also too much oil for a gratin. (Focaccia was superb!)

Unfortunately, it seems that food is overpriced for quality (freshness is there; but not execution.).

We wanted tapas for a pre concert meal so we can keep it light. We were seated at a wonderful table in the wine room overlooking the courtyard dining room. Everyone was so accommodating, especially since we had an only an hour before our show. Jeff, our server spaced out our 5 small plates perfectly. The food was amazing and I highly recommend A.O.C to anyone in the Beverly Hills, Hollywood area.

We have been to A.O.C. several times before and have never had such a bad experience. The waiter, Matt H., ignored us completely throughout our lunch. He never came to greet us, so we waited at least ten minutes before my husband flagged the hostess. She had the manager come over, who kindly took our order. No apologies were given. We got our water and drink (finally), and the food was served by other staff members, not the waiter. My order came with a salad instead of fries, and a busboy got that corrected. Our water glasses were never filled again until the end of the meal. Also, the waiter took another 10-15 minutes to get us our check.

How was this experience supposed to be a decent meal at a fine restaurant? This was beyond disgraceful! We're not even demanding customers. A.O.C. ruined our day!

I would never recommend anyone dine at A.O.C., and we are certainly not returning in the future. The staff should be ashamed of themselves.

Host was a bit cold and indifferent. Not outright rude, but let’s say I’ve received a more genuine welcome and response at IHOP when checking in for a table. But once we sat down we quickly forgot her. Our waiter was incredibly charming and attentive. Food was everything we hoped for and then some. Wine pairings were flawless. Incredible dining experience overall and can’t wait to return.

I’m always a fan of a dining experience where you can try many things. Yay tapas! We ordered too many things to list here but it was a really nice mixture of flavors & textures. Savory, buttery, sweet, refreshing etc... The pace at which each dish came to the table was perfect. Enough time to enjoy each item with no big lulls in between. Our drinks were tasty, our server was friendly and attentive and made great suggestions and the restaurant itself has an inviting ambience. Very hip without being overly trendy. I love that you could come back to this restaurant and order all new things and have a completely different meal. I would certainly go again.

The menu is tapas style and the expectation is that you will order about 3 dishes per person. Hard to get out of there for under $200 for two people. The food was good but nothing stood out as unique or creative.

Excellent small plates for sharing.
Tables are a bit close together, but acceptable.
Corkage is $30, normal to slightly below for the level of the restaurant. They will provide a decanter on request.
Food is inventive and tasty without being salty.

Ordered lots of tapas - everything was very good, some things outstanding. Though since it's a sharing place, the portions were quite small. Inside restaurant by the fireplace is beautiful. Outside, under a cover, is pretty, though a bit rustic - doesn't quite jive with the inside. Good service.

My grandma and I enjoyed a fantastic dinner at AOC. We shared the spicy soppressata focaccia, the brioche, prosciutto, gruyère & egg, and the spanish fried chicken. Each dish was better than the last. My favorite was the spanish fried chicken, though the focaccia certainly is an extremely close second. The servers were attentive and knowledgeable. The restaurant itself is absolutely gorgeous - perfectly decorated with the feel of being transported out of busy LA and into a quiet chalet. Can't wait to return!
