“A perfect experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2012

I rarely give an excellent rating to a restaurant but A.O.C. deserves it. The ambience's was lovely and it was easy to have a conversation. The food was amazing as was the service. In addition we had some lovely Rose wine. It think this is a perfect place to go as a couple for with friends.

I actually did not want to go here because I am not a big wine drinker and the restaurant does not have a full bar but I am so glad I did.

“Famous small plates place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

I wasn't all that impressed personally but everyone I was with enjoyed it immensely and the popularity suggests I'm in the minority.

“never disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

but haven't been there for a year and the menu needed refreshing the last time I was there. whole concept great except the pontless charcuterie bar set up in back. Excellent wine choices are nicely available by demi-carafe. Allows a lot of tasting.

“Always a dining pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

Have dined here multiple times and love the atmosphere, staff and food. They really know who to do it right! Lemon curd dessert a while ago was and remains the best I have ever tasted.
