Really really poor service— our waiting was super sub par.

Had to constantly look for them, flag them down for simple things like drinks & clearing plates to make more room.

The timing of the dishes was really bad too. Sometimes right on top of each other, sometimes 10-15 mins in between.

Just an overall pretty poor service experience from a place i usually love.

The food was excellent, the service was 5 star! We sat on a patio with a bunch of heaters and it was actually a little too warm which is surprising. Other than that it was a fantastic experience.

Really looked foreword to dinner after daughter gave birth at Cedar Sinai. Service started out well in ordering bottle of wine & changing table bc of draft. Then appetizers came & before 1/2 finished our entrees & vegetable sides came. While reasonably prepared, they were lukewarm & totally rushed our meal. We asked the server to slow things down & somewhat curtly were told everything was small plates & that was the way things were done ( a surprise since there was no explanation on the menu or by the server of what to expect) when I asked the server to speak to the manager he replied abruptly he was the manager & walked off. I asked to have my entree of short ribs heated & they were never returned but still on the bill & had to ask to have the charge removed. Off nights can occur but genuine interest in the customer’s experience shows respect & class.

Visiting this restaurant is a must.
I thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff was so friendly and attentive; and they didn't rush us out; wine and food was terrific.

Can't wait to go back with more family members!

We spent a number of Sunday evenings on the patio at AOC since the opening up after the lockdown earlier this year. The food is so inventive and fresh, and the service is solicitous (though the tiniest tad slow to order, consistent with a shortage of waiters/waitresses). They get it consistently right. Thank you, Mss. Goin and Styne.

After touting this to out of town visitors as “my favorite restaurant in LA”, it was actually very average and disappointing. The spacing of courses and sparse appetizer portions was embarrassing. The outdoor seating was nice but really way too many customers for the space. It was a great place when it was small and cozy and dishes were perfectly cooked. Hoping that the opening of the Brentwood location and new concessions in DTLA do not dilute the beautiful AOC experience.

Our fireside patio seating created the perfect ambience for our girls night out. The cocktails were delicious (Green Goddess!). We tried five or six food items, got doubles of some of our favorites and shared it all between the seven of us and loved every dish. My only suggestion is to provide a bit more lighting on the patio. The ambience is lovely, but it was so dark at our table that it was difficult to see the food dishes. Our large round table had one small candle. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

As good as I’ve always heard it was! (Our server was terrific, thoughtful, and precise; the one-star ding was purely bc he seemed stretched thin in that pandemic-era-staffing sort of way). Ate outside on the patio, which was delightful, but am looking forward to coming back for the dining room.

Sunday brunch with an out of town friend. The attentive waiter suggested the Farm Plate which was amazing; fresh veggies, great spreads. The green Chile carnitas plate was satisfying and had a slow burn from the chili’s. The virgin Green Goddess was also spicy and satisfying.Lovely place to eat or just relax with friends

This was my first time back to AOC, since the covid lockdowns began. The food was as good as ever. Maybe better. Curried cauliflower, Spanish fried chicken, cheese and dessert platters were particularly memorable. And the sommelier led us to some wines that we'd never have chosen without his recommendations. They were spot on. In a word, fabulous!

Had to wait almost 30 minutes in bar for table, despite reservation. Obviously, tapas-style food, but portions were particularly small. Bacon-wrapped dates still the best thing on menu. All food and drink delicious.

My wife and I really loved A.O.C. Everything from the concept of smaller and shareable plates to a very good wine by the glass selection (and an outstanding selection if you're getting wine by bottle). I ended with the cheese plate (20 years in Europe does that to you;)) with the best I've had in quite some time. Super service and if we lived in the area, this would definitely be a regular stop for us.

Overall great food, dishes are on the smaller side so order plenty and share so you can try as many things as possible; drinks are very good; wish they’d update the menu more frequently but great other than that;
