This is a great place to meet a friend for cocktails, or dinner. The staff was very attentive and poured a perfect cocktail.

We went for breakfast - don't come before 10 am or you will find locked doors. Carine had the duck with poached eggs and mushrooms. It was earthy, well seasoned and even the bread was smoked. Really good. I had the chicken and waffles. The chicken was all white meat strips and heavily breaded with paprikia and very crunchy. The... More

Hit upon AOC kind of by chance when we were looking for an early dinner. We had no reservation but at 5pm we were sitting at the communal table (bar stools, perfectly OK!) and having a drink and some nibbles. At 5.30 they start serving from the dinner menu. We didn't even know that it was a 'small plates' place,... More

A.O.A. is in someway affiliated with Lucques we think. So, it too, has a 3% charge for employee health care costs. We hope that they becomes the rule rather than the exception. We made reservations and we glad of it. The Valet parking was very reasonable and necessary unless you arrive by cab. The luncheon menu presented the four of... More

We recently celebrated the holidays for a girls brunch and were not disappointed! The food was fantastic and the service attentive and professional. We enjoyed the ambiance as well. I would definitely return.

Four of us dined at AOC for brunch and had a good experience. The setting was moderately noisy but we could still converse. The service was good but not notable. The wine list provided some nice selections. I had the Spanish Fried Chicken with Cornmeal Waffle which was very different and tasty. Another member of our party had the duck... More

On yet another indulgent trip to celebrate my just past birthday (well, I've been celebrating for the last three weeks), my friend and I decided to come to AOC for some fancy shmancy tapas. It was an impromptu treat so I hadn't adequately studied the menu prior to arriving. AOC certainly fits the bill of ever trending tapas style hotspots... More
