    Completely empty but seemed like the waiter was extremely “busy” or just hated his job. Not friendly at all. Food is fine….but very pricy for small portion. The 38$ fish comes on a 4” plate like I’m getting cheese and crackers at the Delta lounge. Skip it.

    First time dining at AOC, wait staff was great very attentive and friendly. We did experience a foul odor during our visit. Food instruction was not executed by chef but otherwise we enjoyed delicious food. I feel like the waffle and fried chicken was missing one little element or garnish to make the dish outstanding. Loved the glassware and dinnerware and flatware. We’ll be back

    AOC is just the latest in a string of high profile restaurants that have resided in the former Hamburger Hamlet space. A larger bar has been installed, making the main room a little more intimate than I remember. Tastefully appointed, but not too dark during the day because of a large picture window at the far end of the room. First of all, service was impeccable. The interesting menu is pork heavy, which my wife does not eat, and the waiter looked into modifications my wife could make. The menu is fairly standard fair, what sets it apart is the preparation. Having said that I thought my chicken and waffle was very good rather than amazing. My wife absolutely loved her breakfast sandwich with fries. Prices are decent, and we plan to come back for dinner.

    Extremely disappointed with the food. That is not the standard which AOC normally serves. Every dish was sub par or bordering on inedible: the sticky bun was still frozen in the middle, the carnitas hash was reheated with absolutely no taste, the cheddar biscuit was stale like a solid brick.

    This is a tapas-style restaurant with an inovative menu covering a wide gamut of gastro pleasures. We dined in the fun and busy bar side of AOC but there is also a quieter dining area and outside seating too. Great service from the friendly and helpful hostess desk, to management helping sort the perfect table, to the wait staff (go Chris!) We loved it!

    We used to dine at this restaurant on a regular basis when it was called Tavern. We really enjoyed spending time there and bringing out of town friends there to dine. New name, same owners, similar menu. For several reasons, including food and service, it just didn't measure up for us. We gave it more than one try. Sorry, won't be back.

    Honestly the list goes on and on. Service was absolutely terrible. Serving me plates of food either individual or shared with no share plates and no silverware . Burnt corn bread with softshell crab. Had to ask for a new piece and when they brought me out the new piece it look like someone took a bite out of it. They never returned the old piece to the kitchen to show the chef as if they didn’t care. Female server wiping her face and playing with her hair constantly as she sludges through the dining room. Very unattractive also very unsanitary. Very expensive tomatoes and beans. I will be honest. I don’t mind spending money on quality ingredients but you better make sure that they are delivered properly and there is financial value on a plate. Not very creative very simple and straightforward I get it. Thank you for the complementary dessert. But I still feel that service was atrocious and the food was mediocre.

    Food is very mediocre . Approach seems to be Mix a lot of ingredients together and slop it on the plate! Fish over cooked. Small side of Broccoli drenched in bad oil for $15. Los Angeles food scene is dismal. restaurants like this are getting away with over charging for terrible food .

    What happened to AOC? It used to be great when the Tavern. Lively, dark bar and beautiful dining room with delicious food and great staff. AOC is the opposite. Menu is similar but food is average. Atmosphere has been all but destroyed. Service is still great. Build out the restaurant the way it used to be, up level the ingredients again and you’ll be back in business. Until then I think we’ve given it our last chance.

    So so service. Our order taker, and I call him that because he certainly wasn’t a waiter, didn’t bother to ask us once whether we were enjoying our food. He also neglected to tell us that the food is served family style. So we thought we were ordering an appetizer, two entrées and a side dish and the food came out at random times. I don’t mind that style of serving, but it would’ve been nice to know before hand

    Really enjoyed the food and the ambience! Will say that after we finished our food, our waiter did not check on us for like 20-30 minutes and we were needing water and to get the bill to make it to next appointment. Other than that every thing was great!

    Food and service were both off the charts excellent and while the restaurant was full and full of energy, we felt comfortably distant from the nearest table in the well ventilated, high-ceiling front space. AOC is hitting its stride in Brentwood and should be here for a long time. We'll certainly be back

    I have been to AOC many times at the Beverly Hills location and this was my first time in Brentwood. The service was horrible. We didn't get a side order we ordered, we asked for salt and pepper and got two pepper and it took another 15 minutes for someone to come by our table. Our waitress disappeared for long periods of time. We had two empty champagne glasses and no one asked if we wanted a refill...I had high expectations and was disappointed.
