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

We ate @ the sister restaurant Lucques the night before. The set up - outdoor terrace is a similar look & feel. That is where the similarity ends. The small plates, the service & the food in general were very disappointing. I would not recommend going here.

Friendly ambiance with great service. Server makes us feel like home in this tapas and wine resto. Cocktails are also delicious. Valet service if you need. Would go back for sure.

I returned here after regularly eating at the old location years ago. The food is outstanding and they now have a liquor license, making good even better. This is a great place for groups to share food.

The location is very nice and the menu is particularly interesting: you can choose from different kind of tapas (meat, fish, vegetables...). I chose the sea bass and the clams tapas : both were really great ! The restaurant is slightly noisy , but the service is very good and the overall atmosphere is very friendly
