The food was better than average, especially the dessert platter, but the dishes are super small and hard to share. They say each dish is meant for 3 people, yet dishes come with one or two slices of bread. Wine is in 6 and 12 ounce portions per glass. I ordered a 12 oz glass that cost $30
and looked like a 6 oz pour. There are two patios, and one is much nicer. We were relegated to the lesser one.

Great food, cocktails, and wine list, and excellent service as well. We took my parents here when they were visiting and had an outstanding meal. It was very nice sitting out on the patio.

I always LOVE having dinner at AOC. The bacon-wrapped dates remain the most delicious menu item, and that is a very high bar to be sure. This was a perfect place to take my parents; the vibe was quiet enough for them but still lively enough to be a fun evening. Service is impeccable. Not a single piece of food we didn't enjoy.

I arrived late to the reservation but they were still able to seat me graciously. The staff is very friendly and even though we were the last party to leave the restaurant we felt like we weren’t rushed at all. I like that the space is cozy yet the tables are far enough apart and we don’t feel like it’s crowded. The ambience is beautiful but the food is even better. I really love the bacon wrapped dates what I always get and they have a fabulous brunch menu I got French toast with berries and fruit along with the charcuterie board and fresh squeezed orange juice which wasn’t on the menu but they made it happen.

We went for a a celebratory lunch. The food, cocktail, mocktail and iced lattes were all excellent. Everyone loved their choices—Dungeness crab omelet, wagyu beef sandwich with amazing fries, Moroccan salad. Blueberry toast with lemon butter and a small dish of memorable bacon wrapped dates as starters were good. Amazing light as a feather but intense lemon soufflé with blueberries for dessert. The only disappointment was that I had really wanted the courtyard off the main dining room and we were put outside on the former parking area that is now a patio (I didn’t know about that and would have specified the original courtyard). It is too hot out there but at least I got them to give us a shadier table. So that gesture saved the day and everything else was top notch as usual. This is a dependably excellent place.

Requested brick patio for my husband’s birthday. Miscommunication as they have two brick patios. I should have requested “East patio” apparently. It was empty when we arrived but they insisted it was booked and put us in the west facing patio (parking lot updated for dining during pandemic). The setting was nice but the table they saved for our reservation was under a speaker with music that was louder than comfortable. We ate and didn’t linger. Not the best birthday dinner experience. We’re in our 60s. Felt like we were maybe too old for special attention of young front desk staff.

They charged us a health service fee if 5% which we asked to have removed because we were not pre-informed about the conditions. We asked for a bottle Peligrino and we serve d a bottle of house soda water and charged $8 which we forgot to contest. The waiter came by during the appetizers to check in us but then was not seen again till the bill came. The runners brought the food which was overpriced for the size of the portions compared to other “sharing” restaurants and worse the staff could not tell us which cheese was which on the cheese board we ordered snd the $10 fee for parking in West Hollywood was insulting. If we had great service and better value for the money ($8.00 for house water) and were explained how the service charges were applied to a bill for four of $280 it could have been a better experience. They need to take their staff to waiter training. We just felt we were ripped off wrt service, high prices for everything including water and bread (we were 4, and when we ordered the cheese plate I made a point of telling our waiter to be sure there were enough slices of bread for each of us. Of course we got 3 pieces and had to ask for more. They brought another 3 pieces and charged us $3.00 for three half slices of bread. This is not the AOC of yore that I remember.

We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation time but waited about 25 minutes until the waitress led us to a table. The food is great, not exceptional but worth the price.

This is the second (and last) time I will dine at AOC. I loved Lucques and use the Sunday Supper cookbook all the time so I had high hopes for AOC. Other than the courtyard, which is beautiful, it is lacking in every way. Our server seemed put out the entire night, our food was mediocre (and one fish dish was so undercooked it was chewy and required re-fire). It was my husband’s birthday, but they did nothing to acknowledge it. The wine was exceedingly overpriced. If I’m ordering a $75 bottle, it should be good not just ok. Fool me twice. I won’t get fooled again.

We were a party of 8. It was difficult to get a reservation so we booked 5 pm... the only time they had available that WEEK! It was worth going early. We sat in their original outdoor patio by the fireplace. Most of the tables around us were filled but the noise level was minimal. As always, the food was fantastic and the service was great. Take note, the patio they set up in their parking lot was completely packed.
