So it is never acceptable to overcharge clients for food. If that is the premise then AOC fails to perform. Tiny plates with excessive prices and not very inventive. Farmers platter is a tiny portion of cold potatoe slices ( how much could that cost) along with a 'dab" of hummous or whatever. Ridiculous. Service is fine and waiters know... More

This restaurant serves mostly small plates which makes it a bit more expensive than when you first look at the menu. The food was excellent. The service was terrific.

As big fans of OZ reds, we loved the Kalleske Clarry's GSM. The arctic char, arugula, crushed grapes & crème fraîche was excellent, as was the market lettuce, cucumber, beets, avocado & walnuts salad and the farro & black rice, currants & pinenuts. The honey panna cotta with blueberry compote & pear sorbet was a very good ending. Alicia B.... More

Decided to have a drink and dinner at this restaurant last minute. My drink was delicious and very refreshing. The restaurant was full but was able to accommodate us on the communal table. We order a few tapas (the cod fish was really good served with Caldo Verde... for a Portuguese descendent to say that... believe me it was good).... More

A nice place to eat with a very great ambiance, but I don't recommend this place for brunch.May be they have good tapas or dinner but it is a bit different type of food for brunch. Well, I had oven cooked egg with pea I did not like it but maybe some people they like this combination. The staff was... More

Perfect restaurant for lunch, brunch and dinner with friends. Food quality and presentation was excellent without trying to be fussy or uber creative. Most dishes are made for sharing which I recommend here. Service was very attentive and friendly. Explanations for each dish was offered upon serving. Ask for a spot outside for more light or close to the fire... More

This is a lovely place day or night, we booked ahead as it's popular. Our table was in the side garden which is idyllic. You order dishes to share and there's lots of good choices.

Fantastic food, atmosphere and service. The menu is varied with a-la-carte breakfast and lunch options. My friend and I decided to create our own and share. Great cheeses, Jamon Serrano, Olives, Focaccia, Prosciutto wrapped figs... Delicious and spicy Bloody Mary and awesome wine selections. Valet parking available as well as street parking if you find a metered spot.
