Located in the heart of New York City's West Village, A.O.C. has become a part of the historic and beautiful neighborhood.

Our extensive menu is a collaboration of handed down family recipes from the chef/owner, Romain Bonnans, and classic French fare.

Savor everything from Omelets to Feuille de Brique for brunch. For dinner you might try our Moules Marinieres (a favorite among our customers), a classic Salad Nicoise or a Lobster Risotto, all while enjoying the casual atmosphere. In the summer months, relax in our outdoor garden and experience a little bit of France.

Food was pretty good, but the service was quite terrible and kind of ruined the experience.

Experience wasn’t good, and I will not go back. Every time I go something goes wrong with the service or the food. This time, we sit down and one of the bread plates was super dirty-no one noticed and no one came to change it. They brought milk for the coffee that had bread crumbs it.
We ordered 2 sandwiches and a burger (veeery easy order !) and they managed to bring us the wrong sandwiches, change them, brought one of them again wrong, change again, in the meantime they also brought us a wrong burger, changed it, the second one was also wrong, took the plate away to go investigate what Table does that burger belong to, them came back to us with the same wrong burger saying “er...was a kitchen mistake, you know, there are so many burgers laying around...there will be no charge for the caramelized onions” ( What if I DON’T WANT CARAMELIZED ONIONS ON MY BURGER?) - which is not an acceptable excuse in a hot spot location such as this anyways, by now the cheese on our food was not warm and melted but a cold brick, and the fries .. well..cold fries. Yum!
The busboy tried to take my plate away while I was obviously still eating, and the general communication between waiters and busboys was very poor. The food is not of good quality and it’s WAY OVERPRICED for what it is. Cute place but cmon, New York ( and the village!) has so so so much more to offer. I know mistakes happen in the kitchen/with the staff but if the food is not so good and also expensive, well then we got a problem ;)
Oh also, the place was not busy.

This place has a nice outdoor patio which is great for dining but the food is terrible so I can't go back to eat there unfortunately.

Cheeseburger and black linguine were barely edible. Waiter was beyond rude. We asked for butter for the bread (that we also had to ask for) and he questioned us that it was at the bottom of the basket (it wasn’t). He came back later and said that they were out of butter. That was very had to believe. Skip this spot and wait the 30 min for Buvette down the block.

After several excellent dinners, went for Sunday brunch. A little less special, perhaps, but still of very good quality. A few service glitches did not interfere with a good time.

Interesting but typical French menu. Good for my adventurous son who enjoyed muscles for the first time, and for my conservative daughter who stuck with the baked chicken and fries. I went with the EXTREMELY RICH seafood risotto. Good cheese selection, and standard French Onion soup. It was a friendly environment and nice larger space behind the seemingly small restaurant front. However, we didn't realize until we left that there was great live music (2 men and guitars) in the front room that we couldn't hear from the back. Be sure to ask about live music when you arrive so you can chose to sit near it if you like.

Overall, a very pleasant French spot in the Village, fairly reasonably priced. Our appetizers were both good, but we were both disappointed in the duck confit was frankly tougher than it should have been. Also, there was a big time gap between appetizer and entree. Service was otherwise good and attentive.

Fun time and great deal at happy hour with $5 French wines/beers and $1 oysters , $4-$5 appetizers. Fish entree with huge side of mixed veggies was fabulous. I even got to practice my French. Looking forward to going back soon.

Food here was great, but it was really crowded, and the tables are REALLY close together, so we felt a little claustrophobic. It was loud. And so dark you could barely read the menu. Despite the fact that the food was very good, we probably won't go again.

Wonderful food and wine. The service was excellent and we all enjoyed the meal. We went to AOC for a birthday dinner and couldn't be happier with the experience. The background music was at a reasonable level and we were able to enjoy our conversation. The banquet seating was comfortable for all 5 of us.

Reasonably authentic French preparations with Francophone staff, though they were sometimes a bit inattentive. Foie gras starter excellent, but avoid the tarte tatin, soggy and with... raspberries? Mon dieu!

The service was great. Food too salty. Had to return the carrot ginger soup. My boeuf bourginon was also too salty, cut of meat should have been better for $29.
Salad nicoise was fine.

I’ll start by saying the food was very good! However, the server was terrible! Unattentive, slow, and not very helpful. We had to keep asking the bus boy to send our server over so we could order drinks. I will also say the restaurant was not busy so there was absolutely no reason for such poor service.. What really set me over the top was I had indicated it was a Birthday celebration on my reservation and there was no acknowledgement of it and the lava cake we order states it takes 15-20 minutes but 40 minutes later it still had not come. We ended up leaving before the cake because we were on our way to the theater. When I told the manager that the service was terrible and that I paid for a dessert that we never got... his response was I’m sorry! My answer to him is I’m sorry because I will never return or recommend your restaurant! I am sure there is an establishment that will happily welcome my 400.00 dinner!

We had a Groupon and the meal was very good but the cost of the bottled water kind of offset the entire Groupon. We've eaten here 3 times and each time every single item was a bit too salty. Entrees were perfectly nice, better than a fast casual restaurant, salad nicoise and a special of cassoulet. Server was -- to be nice, a bit clueless, as every time we've eaten here -- asked how the cassoulet was and she said her dad had eaten it elsewhere and liked it -- . Hostess was smarter but we found we were billed a WHOPPING 7 DOLLARS FOR EACH OF TWO 8 OUNCE PELLIGRINOS. Folks, you can get a litre for 2 bucks easy at the grocery store. Left feeling extremely ripped off with a lame "Sorry about that" from the hostess. Warning - if you didn't get it -- don't order sparkling water, they only have one size and it's 7 bucks for the price of a bottle of half decent wine. Go the the San Pellegrino website and you can buy a case of 24 for 17.99. That's not just a rip off, that's a rip off with the INTENTION of ripping you off.
