Not bad but we prefer Tapas in Barcelona. A big wine list but rather expensive if you do the traditional mistake to order more than two glasses of wine instead of a bottle. USD 75 (with tax and tip) for 4 glasses of Pinot Noir. I totally dislike, in general, all additions to the price shown on the price list... More

Went to AOC with a group of 12. Accommodations were excellent. But this was a group that went there hungry and left hungry. I am sure that we could have been better served if we had ordered individually off the menu but we never even saw one. Service was Meh? Might have been a bit LA for this crowd but... More

We were in AOC 4 days ago with friend. I liked the atmosphere and food but the drinks were even better- Just have a probably non relevant comment- They offered serrano ham in the menu which I found unusual- and as expected it was prosciutto not real serrano ham- :)- Great place for a romantic dinner or hanging out with...

We live in Orange County, and we have seriously considered buying a pied-a-terre JUST so we can dine at places like this more often. We are never disappointed with the food and wine choices here. The original location featured a wine service system that allowed people to order a single glass while keeping the remainder of the bottle fresh. The... More

We only had 3 nights in LA but after our first dinner at AOC we had to go back for a 2nd dinner. The restaurant was lovely. One night we sat on the terrace, the next night at the bar. The staff were very knowledgable in their recommendations of both food and wine, and I had the best dessert I've... More

I have dined here several times and the food is always delicious, the combination of flavors in some of the dishes are outstanding. The service is great ad you never feel rushed. This is a go to restaurant hen we have out of town guests.

We were invited to dinner for our anniversary and were looking forward to enjoy a nice dinner in a great place – We were seated in a beautiful and lovely outdoors patio and had an overall, a very nice experience. The server was slow to come to the table and his follow up uninspiring and did not compliment the image... More

My wife gave me the A.O.C. cookbook for Christmas after reading a review in the Washington Post. After looking through the book, I had to go to A.O.C. when we went to Los Angeles on a recent business trip. Wow!!! I am glad she gave me the cookbook, even more since I ate there. The food is the fresh farm... More
