    Everything tasted great except for the deserts. They need a little work. We ordered the platter at $30 and it was mostly chocolate (not my favorite). With a little work everything will be great!

    Had an incredible time at AOC Brentwood. We were a party of four and comfortably shared in dishes from all over the menu. Their wine list is delectable, and we were recommended the prettiest Grenache blend to pair with their duck and sea bass options. Just, amazing.

    Love it here. Although the acoustics are intense! We had to move outside so we could hear each other speak! Entree I ordered ended up looking like an appetizer so beware of the fried chicken unless you plan to share it. Super odd to receive an entire skillet of fried chicken to myself. Thought more was going to be happening for that $26 entree!

    Love AOC! Sat at the bar and ordered the Gold Dragon which was delicious. We also had the Spanish Chicken, Soppressata Focaccia and the Farmer's Plate - all delicious but the Spanish Chicken is a can't miss. Great, friendly crowd. Highly recommend!

    Kale salad was undermarinated and painful. Outdoor table was abutting construction. Service good. Good thing I was in great company with an old friend, otherwise might have been brutal.

    Started off well with orders coming to the table then the duck breast didn’t show up when our last item (cauliflower ) came to the table. After 10+ minutes asked the waiter where the duck was. Finally was delivered to the table. No excuse for the slow service especially when we were seated at 6:30 before the crowds arrived.

    It was a nice place for brunch. The wait staff were friendly, especially our server Shana. One observation that stood out was when I made the reservation I indicated we were celebrating our anniversary and didn't get wished a Happy Anniversary when we arrived. Not looking for anything free but it's always nice to be greeted with well wishes on a special occasion like this. Otherwise, AOC was a pleasant place to kick off our day.

    Organized a surprise birthday. Staff was very accommodating to decorations and a balloon delivery which they normally don’t do. That being said, service was inattentive throughout the meal. We regularly had empty drinks. Portions were very small and even though meant to be shared all came at the wrong times. We had to flag down wait staff for water, new plates for the next course, and to request dessert. Disappointed overall.

    I had been really looking forward to trying AOC Brentwood, as I have always loved dining at the original AOC in LA, where I always had farm fresh, outstanding food. I went for lunch with a good friend and sat outdoors, which was lovely. We were told 20 minutes after we placed our order that the chef ran out of Turkey Burgers, so we had to order salads instead. The waiter recommended a particular salad, and my friend asked to remove one item from the salad as she had dietary restrictioin. The salads arrived, and were small, very over-dressed, and after eating a few bites, we realized the waiter gave us the other's salad - so my friend had inadvertently eaten some of what she is not able to have. The waiter did offer to get her another salad, but by then we had been there an hour, and did not want to have to wait longer. The salad was very unsatisfying, and was extremely expensive. So we ended up paying over $50 for two small, unappealing salads. My friend said she will never go back to AOC, we were so disappointed. I expected more from this restaurant!
