What Insiders Are Saying
A.O.C. in Beverly Grove is fancy and sexy and serves top-notch French food as well. Your sex life can thank us later.
location is stunning - very warm and charming. we ate in front of the fireplace and it had a lovely romantic feel to it.
it's somewhat "tapas" style and so it was fun to taste different things. my the char was fabulous as were the lamb chops. Broccolini and blood orange salad did not stand out. Pot de creme for desert was lovely - cookies that came with it not very yummy. Wine selections are great.
service is good - not warm and fuzzy but knowledgable and efficient.
Fantastic, as always! Service was great, but slightly backed up.
This place is always great--i've never had a less than great meal or a less than perfect glass of wine. The table we got was so nice (one of the raised booths), and everything was just perfect. It was really just a wonderfully perfect meal and morning. Nothing here ever feels pretentious even though there is a graceful elegance about it.
This is an amazing restaurant. The food is delicious and very innovative. Every time I have eaten here has been a delight. I highly recommend this as a great dining experience with excellent service.
We went to AOC for my husbands birthday with friends from out of town and we couldn’t haven’t been more satisfied. The food was phenomenal. The atmosphere was lively yet warm and welcome! I highly suggest AOC! It was also fun trying all the dishes since they are smaller plates.
Delicious food and fun cocktails. Beautiful
Outdoor covered area.
First time for half of our group, and it was great! Welcoming staff, awesome space, and tasty food priced fairly.
Only minor knock on the service is we asked our hostess as she was passing for more hot water for one of our party’s tea. We didn’t expect her to get it herself, but to at least pass the request along to wait or bus staff. It never happened.
First time here and loved the overall experience. Brought my parents here to celebrate my mother’s birthday, and they loved it as well. Loved the farmer’s plate and would come back just to eat again. Kudos to the front and back of the house.
My first review... food was amazing, staff was great. Couldn’t ask for a better birthday!
AOC is a great place to go! I visited with my girlfriend recently. Great drinks to start. Focaccia is small but tasty. The spanish fried chicken was good, though my expectations were admittedly high. The best item was the black rice with squid/clams, basically like a paella but arguably better. Highly recommend!
Delicious food served family style. Great way to try a number of dishes. Efficient and friendly service.
wonderful wine bar, food was so good and the wine list is amazing. Service was very friendly. It is pricey though, still i would definitely go back!
Celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday at AOC. The ambience was perfect and the waiter was very nice. The bacon wrapped date and squid were my favorite dishes. Cocktail was also great! We ordered a dessert, I forgot the name, it was like a baked berry cake with ice cream in the middle. Very delicious with the berries inside. They put a candle in the middle and wished my boyfriend happy birthday. Nice dinner but slightly expensive.
Service was great as were two of five dishes (chicken and hanger steak) we had. The others not so good. Realize they change menu but our previous experience was sensational. For the prices we expect more.
Very good food!
I ordered a shared dish for the table when ordering coffee at brunch, and told them we were all pretty hungry, and that glorious blueberry bread with lemon showed up thirty five minutes later. We ordered the food about twenty minutes after we ordered the blueberry bread, and the delivery to the table was only five minutes apart. The worst part is they didn’t even apologize about it.
All the food was delicious, but that doesn’t mean you skimp on customer service.
We did find out they have children’s breakfast options!
Amazing, we had such a brilliant dinner celebrating our friends birthday. Our server was incredible!
Food was great. Tapas style of food service. Staff was helpful and accommodating. The lighting was a bit dark. Hard to read the menu and see food. But other than that, overall experience was great.
Wonderful food. Great service and mostlyngreat ambience. Some weird issues with lighting and music.
Best food ever....always! The service is impeccable, fantastic cocktails and beautiful patio dining.
The service at AOC was especially standout. Each plate arrived in a perfectly spaced order and was cleared as soon as we were finished. There was not a single thing that I would not order again. Fair price for a beautiful restaurant.
Very nice staff, ambience was beautiful and assume is the meals were excellent even if not gourmet-level special, Eben though the portions were gourmet sized. To me all of our didn't add up to a $200+ dinner for two with 2 1/2 glasses of wine. Would come here again to sit at the bar and have a small entree or dessert with my drink at hapoy hour or late night,
Superb local restaurant with excellent food & superb service. But it gelt a bit like they placed an ad hoc table in a doorway. It was fairly loud.
Birthday. They stuck a candle in what she ordered.
We had a big party. And the service and attention was amazing!!!!
Good menu at dinner time. So few choices at lunch, tiny portions, and my lunch was not good fish! Overripe and over cooked!
I requested a quiet round table for a group of 7 and was delighted with the perfect table, which enabled us to have lively conversation . Service was outstanding— the server helped me select an interesting menu for the 7 of us to share. Hanger steak , swordfish and Zuni chicken were especially delicious; also enjoyed curried cauliflower, Spanish fried chicken; dessert platter . Drinks were also wonderful, esp the Green Goddess cocktail. Can’t wait to go back for dinner or brunch
The sweet potatoes and the faro were amazing! We ordered 4 plates and felt it was actually too much.
This is a great place to meet with people who care about good food. The small plates are perfectly executed, inventive without being pretentious. The wine list is terrific, although I still shudder a bit at the prices, they are competitive at this echelon. Servers are efficient and upbeat, happy to allow for a leisurely pace. In general this restaurant seems dedicated to creating an enjoyable ambiance for their guests.
Very cute restaurant, would be great for casual drinks and brunch.
A+. Been many times and loved it but the food was perfect this time.
Our go-to place for sharing delicious small plates and excellent wines.
Fried chicken Amazing as always great service and ambience I love this place. The market veggies were Soggy though we sent it back. Everything else was great I will go back
Very good dinner ... shared plates and unique dishes ...
Great overall experience. Friendly staff and service was wonderful. The food and cocktails were really good as well.
Great food. Great service. Beautiful setting. What’s not to love?
Mostly excellent food, friendly and knowledgeable service, and a beautiful setting in which to dine (especially if you sit on the outside patio). Highly recommend the kabocha gratin (amazing comfort food), the fontina, asiago & white trumpet focaccia, and the grilled hanger steak. Have had much better cheese plates elsewhere and the young broccoli dish was a bit too oily. Portions are small, and value for the price not ideal. Overall, we really enjoyed our meal and would recommend AOC.
We had a large group and they were very accommodating. We ordered a wide variety of dishes and everything was very tasty. Save room for dessert as it’s definitely worth it. I will definitely be back for the new seasons menu.
I had a great time with three of my friends -- we just wanted to brunch and talk. The service was exceptional. We were not hurried. I asked for a quiet table and they did their best to accommodate. The food was delicious -- out highlights were the salmon cooked perfectly on a salad and fabulous french toast. The bacon wrapped dates are always a must. Thank you so much to the team at AOC for making our experience so delightful. We were the 3 hour ladies lunch in the corner. We'll be back.
overall the experience was good. the service want bad but it was quite slow. the cocktails were not good.
