Been 18 months since we dined at our favorite restaurant in LA. Everything is wonderful and true Southern California dining which is why A.O.C. is a legacy and legendary restaurant. Brentwood location is more convenient but does not have the architectural charm of the West Hollywood location.
Bravo!

It was for a birthday celebration. Foods were in small sizes and the waitress who served us did tell us we might need 2-3 plates per person, platters were a bit bigger. There were 3 of us, we ordered 5 plates and 1 platter and it was a-bit too much for us, so 2 plates per person was quite enough (we are all ladies, FYI) and we shared the food so that we got to taste everything. We have enjoyed the environment, service, food quality was top, everything was delicious, it was a great experience and memorable gathering! Thank you everyone work in AOC!

This was our second time at AOC and the service and food were incredible. All meals were well portioned and the menu is updated to reflect seasonal ingredients. neighboring tables were all in good spirits adding to the pleasing ambiance of the patio and dining experience.

The food was great, especially the farmer share plate.
We had a table at 2 so we were rushed to order before the kitchen closed, understandable.
But after we’d eaten no one cleared our plates, asked if we wanted coffee or anything.
Our server over poured our wine to finish it quickly and then a half hour later at 4pm (still without clearing the table) the bill was plonked on the table.
Not a great way to end a meal. If you are that worried about clearing everyone out at 4pm on the dot don’t book tables after 1.30.
Will book earlier next time!

I have been to AOC a few times for brunch and always enjoyed it but not so much this time. The beautiful outdoor space I usually sit in was closed for a private event that evening so we were sat on the outside area which was formerly the parking lot. What is disappointing about this space is the trash bins are hiding just behind the fence which caused tons of flies flying around the tables and landing on our food. There are even tables basically up against the fence which is all that separates the table from the trash bins. I understand the restaurant had to create more outdoor dining space due to COVID but it is so unappetizing seeing flies land on your food. We didn’t touch half of our charcuterie board and blueberry bread because flies had landed on them. I hope the restaurant can figure out how to remedy this issue.

Very pretty restaurant — food and wine are a bit overpriced although tasted good

the server I had seemed obviously disappointed that we were eating light and not drinking alcohol thinking more of his gratuity than our experience

— I was a server myself so I know the type and I know there are a lot of crappy tippers out there — there are also people who tip great on smaller bills — there’s no way to predict so you should just give all tables great service and trust that you will be compensated fairly

at the end of the day I don’t think I’d go back here again —

It was a birthday celebration and all we hoped. We sat in the main garden. It was beautiful and did not feel too close to other diners. Lee our waiter was fabulous and every suggestion he made was great.

Beautiful space, incredible food and great service! Even our 7 year-old raved about the “grown up” food—-which was incredibly flavorful and perfectly seasoned. We ordered 5 different dishes to share and none disappointed. I would highly recommend this restaurant and plan to go back again myself very soon.

The drinks are over priced and did not taste good. They seemed watered down. The long Island ice teas we ordered tasted like lemon juice, we had to send them back. The French toast was good for one, under cooked for another and over cooked for the other and under cooked for another. Very inconsistent. The fruit was good and the chicken part of the chicken and waffles was good. The waffles taste like the were made with corn meal.
The beacon was good and the orange juice was great. The mimosa's were ok but for 16 dollars for a drinks I would expect something more robust.

Food was decent as always. Ryan and Leah (wait staff) we’re absolutely great. We really didn’t like the host, though. She was not warm at all and lied to our faces about tables being available outside. We asked her twice before We spotted two empty ones on the patio. Her response was “oh I guess there is”. “I thought you meant the other patio”.

This stood out to as as favoritism (unless she somehow truly didn’t know) and a horrible restaurant practice. I hope to never deal with her again.

Perhaps I am a bit wistful about AOC's old location, service and menu. While everything was okay, that's just the point.. it was okay. Gone is the extensive small plates menu, and I felt like everything was pretty standard fare. Service was slow, the food arrived at weird increments, and a few of the items were luke warm by the time they arrived. I know everyone is getting on their feet again, but I doubt I'll be back. There are far better options at about the same price range.

I’m certain to go back. The food is outstanding. Understanding these are small plates, the portions are ridiculously small. We also had an issue with our cocktails. The pours are on the light side. We sent our drinks back to be remade. Our waiter went as far to tell us ‘the bartender said you aren’t meant to taste the alcohol’.

The ambience and service were very good. The food and selections are fair, but nothing to write mother about.. I really miss Sunday suppers at Lucques. Nevertheless, the crab omelet lacked seasoning and could have been great with a sauce, the chicken and waffle dish was standard fried chicken ala fast food chicken fingers and the waffle was like a piece of bread that was waffle ironed rather than in a toaster. The other members of our party of six seemed to enjoy their selections.
