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.

Went here for a business lunch and I loved the place from the outside and all the way around. The service was amazing, the decor is absolutely beautiful. The outside terrace where we sat was lovely and great for our lunch meeting. It's on the costly side but this IS Los Angeles. I had never had GREEN Harissa so I... More

My first time at AOC, and I can see why my client from Chicago made this reservation a while ago. He insisted on sharing, and I was excited to try a few things. We started with a salad - market lettuce, cucumber, beets, avocado & walnuts - so fresh and tasty! Our next courses were served at the same time:... More

The food is simple French casual fair--so fresh and delicious! There is a good selection on the menu ranging from vegies, to meats to cheeses and focaccia bread. It is always a full house so if you want a certain evening, book early! I love the pretty outdoor patio area.

I went there with a big group, 18 people. Even so, the service was really nice, and suggested that we share a lot of plates, so that everybody could try everything, and order more. AND IT WAS AMAZING! The food was really good. The restaurant has a organic / farm vibe in their ingredients, but a cool and modern architectural... More

This is be far one of our most favorite restaurants for an intimate date night, a small group or special occasion. The food is spectacular and the outdoor covered patio puts me in mind of being in the East Village. The service is exceptional and the host/hostess are always accommodating. They have a great Sunday brunch. There fried chicken dish... More

Sat at the outdoor terrace. Loved the ambiance and the mojito :) One thing i did not like was the strange smell that breezed through a few time during our brunch. I hope that get fixed
