Yummy! The food is so delectable and satisfying that the small plates satisfied a big appetite like mine. That is quite the compliment because our waitress told us that each person usually orders 3 things each.We started with 2 items each

Ate there last night with a group of old friends. Haven't been to L.A. for awhile and it was nice to be back in the city. Loved the small plate concept, had a few things I'd only heard of. Sampled several delicious wines, thank God I

The first time went to AOC I loved it, but I have since backed off on that. The dishes are great (farrow w squid one of my faves) but while the atmosphere is fine it feels a little sterile-- kind of a like a big coporate restaurant.

I had never had Tapas before, but this was a good place to experiment. It was quite pricey, but we weren't paying! Their wine list was incredible. They had some wines that were next to impossible to find!My favorite sampling was their prosciutto wrapped figs. It sounds strange but they were to-die-for!I recommend this place for a special occasion because of the price.

we don't get how your site gave this place a 5-star rating! upon your site's recommendation, we went there for valentine's dinner. not only did the place look and feel like 'restoration hardware' (w/ the same bright lighting & everything),

Went with a big group (made reservations for the back patio). They seated us within 10-15 minutes. Nice table, great service. The portions are small - but, hey it's tapas style. Every bite was wonderful. I really enjoyed the skirt steak,

Pros: Cheese bar, food, drink and dining experience.

Great place! Food is phenomenal, but pricey. But here, you get what you pay for. Any time I'm trying to impress a business associate, this is the first place I think of. A guaranteed great experience.

If you one to save up for a special meal out, this is a great place to look forward to. My sister took me here to celebrate my birthday while visiting L.A. and it was such a treat for us (we don't dine out--nicely like this--very often).

The negative reviews truly are a surprise to me. I've gone to AOC several times and never have gotten poor service. The NYE package seemed kinda lame since this was their first year doing it and even the hostesses felt insecure about it

Bacon-wrapped dates, fried oysters, ubiquitous prosciutto, fancified egg sandwiches, sextuple-cream cheeses--there is much for a health-conscious person to avoid on this menu. I suggest going nearby to Joan's on Third or The Little Door
