This restaurant is a gem. It is in the most interesting building with the greatest decor. The service is unbelievable - not even one bit pretentious or precious. The food blew us away. We lived in NYC for 20 years, and this was one of the most memorable meals we have ever had.

Really nice LA Brunch. Low key, very nice and comfortable patio. Me and hubby both had the wonderful french toast.
Nice touch; one of our friend's order was a bit tardy coming out so the waiter brought a chicken and waffles on the house for the table.

We came to this restaurant after a restaurant recommended by a friend didn't serve its dinner menu even though we had made a 5pm dinner reservation. The full menu at AOC was available at 5pm and everything we ordered was delcious. The preperation of the swiss chard was particularly excellent, as was the lamb merquez. The wine selections by the glass were excellent. We were excited an hour later at the Hollywood Bowl to realize AOC has a concession there selling similiar (if not the same) wines - there we were able to have a bottle of Valdiguié at the same price as the restaurant. Looking forward to returning, hungrier, next time we are in the area.

Enjoyed a great evening with family our first night in LA. Atmosphere on the patio was very nice. Drinks very good as was the food. Our waiter Doug was super. Must try the wrapped dates.

We were a party of nine celebrating our granddaughter's graduation from USC. The wait service was excellent. We did order too much and took the whole chicken home. There was a lot of fish left over, my son mentioned that it was under-cooked and he noticed it was taken off the bill, which was extraordinary customer service. The wine by the glass was excellent. My husband and I had vodka on the rocks and the pour was very generous.
