    It was a lunch to catch up with a friend and we needed a place to chat and have a nice meal. High marks for our server. Low marks for the Larder Salad preparer in the kitchen who doused my veggies in salad dressing. They were swimming in a pool of vinaigrette :(

    OVERALL : MEH ( not very good)! Just a disclaimer - we are a middle aged couple who live in Manhattan for 22 years ( still keep a home there) and LA for 25 years, and Have been fortunate enough to have eaten at some of the best restaurants in Europe , china, and US (also many fine mid level restaurants ) from Beijing, Shanghai, Paris, Rome, NYC,, Las Vegas, MIAMI, Rome. London, etc. etc. so maybe our expectations were too high, but I typically prefer the mid priced bistro , or semi upscale gem to a Michelin 2 star restaurant. So what did I not like about AOC? The food: Portions embarrassingly small for a huge price - even for shared plates What we ate. Salmon - decent - but too rich and too small; literaly 2 small bites.$27. Lamb ribs ( I thought it was lamb chops) were charred fat on a spare rib bone, Fried chicken: something I get from Popeyes ( I imagine)......portion large. Hanger steak - tender , pretty good- but all you get is 1 or 2 bites for $29. (I am sure by time it was cooked down was less than 3 oz.) ( I'd rather pay $50 for a prime ribeye or ny cut 120z ) the ambiance -- nice for drinks or a light bite, gather with friends after work. the service - excellent Over all experience - MEH!!!

    We’ve been to the restaurant several times. The setting is really nice, the food is good, but the service is consistently poor. The people are all very nice, so I don’t know if they’re understaffed or if there’s a problem with the kitchen.

    A deeply disappointing meal. None of the hot foods came to the table hot! The “ode to Zuni” chicken was nothing like Zuni chicken - not properly salted, luke warm, and the bread croutons rock hard. The service was annoying with people constantly coming over to ask if we were done when we were clearly still eating. All in all quite a disappointment.

    Zero personality servers... There was more enthusiasm when we were greeted when we walked in. What's the problem with Bread? Where is the logic when two people are having dinner and ask for bread and the server brings out one slice???

    Very disappointed. Service was poor. Forgot to bring entire dishes and dropped the ball all around. Was incredibly upset they had prix fixe menu on table. Once we ordered, two guests wanted this. The waiter said we would all have to order this. Menu didn’t indicate this. Restaurant could’ve done it anyway since we all ordered appetizers and salads. Bad start to a meal. Salmon wasn’t good. Butterscotch pudding was excellent Scallops were excellent. Fried chicken was excellent. Salad was excellent.

    The food was delicious - I have the salmon (wild caught!) and the sweet potatoes and both were very tasty. I had two different wines, one a German white that is hard to find, so I enjoyed that. I would give all 5 stars if it weren't so loud.

    My BF and I always wanted to try this restaurant and Dine LA provided the perfect opportunity. The pre fix menu was perfect because it was tapas style so we were able to try a lot of different plates. The food came hot and delicious. Flavored perfectly. The Spanish style fried chicken is a must, and it's boneless. The staff was beyond friendly and the ambiance was comfortable yet chic.

    Two of us went for brunch. I had seen lemon ricotta pancakes on the menu online and that's what I really wanted and why I chose that place to go to but when we got there they weren't on the menu any longer and that was kind disappointing. The menu skews kind of heavy and meaty. I guess that's more of a fall or winter vibe. We sharing the roasted vegetable platter and I had the baked eggs. a The meals were tasty we enjoyed them and I would go back. We had the brunch option which is a starter and an entree for $35. Our server was very nice and helpful. I wish I knew his name so I could acknowledge him here.

    The food was great. The service was great. I was a bit unhappy to be eating with a very large french bull dog roaming near my table (it was leashed). The management was very nice about my complaint but let me know that since it was a "service dog" with alleged papers it was out of their hands. I have allergies and feel that for the money I'm paying at a restaurant like AOC service or any other dogs should be kept outside.

    First time visiting and it was a good experience. All staff (hostess, bartenders and our servers) were all attentive and made great recommendations. Bacon wrapped dates were a great starter, the fried chicken was tasty and the lamb ribs were the highlight for us. Really great, bold flavors. Finished off with a sweet dessert, would go back again.

    Portions not as small as I do believe from server. Server should give more guidance. We totally over ordered. Sound level is beyond talking ability where you have to scream. Delightful place but needs soundproofing. Probably will not be coming back and only go outside.

    I really hate to write a poor review but overall this experience was very disappointing. We took clients to AOC as an appreciation dinner. We sat down at 7:15. Our drink orders were not taken until until after 7:45 pm and took even longer to arrive. Our server went completely MIA. We finally flagged him down so we could put in a food order. We each ordered the prefixe menu. It took an incredible amount of time between courses. Some people were served together but not the whole table. Servers and food runners had to ask us repeatedly who ordered what. The food was unfortunately really mediocre all around. And at the end of the night the bill was over $500 for four people, which would have been fine but the service and food was so subpar. I actually had to excuse myself early from the dinner because it was nearing 10 pm and the bill hadn’t come (my business partner stayed behind and paid it). With a 7:15 reservation and an infant at home, I never expected to be waiting until 10 pm to wrap up. Our clients noted several times how poor the service was, which was an embarrassment to us. What was supposed to be a celebratory dinner to treat valued clients turned into an expensive and lackluster evening. Sorry but have to be honest.

    Pretty odd. They listed one menu on the dinela web site, but had a different one there. I wanted items on the other menu. Okay, now here’s the weird part. The dinela menu is $35. However, if you order the same items on the regular menu, the total is $28-30. Waited too long for food to come out and it came out cold Won’t be back
