We loved all the food - I especially liked the scallops. The wine was also excellent. One thing that is surprising is that, even though the tables are close together on the patio, we felt like our conversation was private and we didn't feel overwhelmed by noise at all. It was really relaxing and enjoyable.

Celebrated our 6th Anniversary tonight. Out waiter, Sage, was amazing. Super down to earth kind of guy who made great recommendations on food and drinks for our first time dining at the restaurant.

This is an absolute gem in an otherwise culinary robust neighborhood. Great cuisine, wine & the occasional celebrity sighting seals the deal for me.

My boyfriend and I went here for his birthday and had a really lovely time. Our waiter, Alex, was absolutely extraordinary and really made the experience. Fabulous wine and desserts, and extra points for the beauty of the back patio. Would absolutely come here again!!

All in a great night. Noise level a bit high on the patio. Prices are pricey but I knew that going in.
Wait staff was great and attentive.

A delightful meal on every level: a welcoming non-stuffy ambience; top-knotch ingredients prepared to perfection; excellent service; a great wine list. The wines are a bit pricey but they are balanced out by shared plates that are very reasonably priced for the quality. Sit on the patio and enjoy a true "this is the life" meal!

Food and service was superlative. Patio music was terrible and it was noisy. Inside the booth was great and the noise level more than OK. The four of us thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant and the adventurous and wonderful food. We will definitely go again for dinner. It's already a favorite for brunch on the weekends.

There was a piece of hair in my food and I literally lost my appetite and couldn't each anything after that. Even the table next to us heard what happened and left the restaurant because of that . One of the waiters that brought our check was rude and so was the hostess that greeted us when we first arrived. It was so uncomfortable to even be there and I was so shocked because of the area that its in I thought was going to have a wonderful dinning experience and it was the complete opposite from what I expected. My friends where so upset and we all will never go there again. The sad part was that we spent $140.00 for something that wasn't even worth it at the end.

AOC never disappoints! Everything from the drinks to the appetizers and entrees were delicious. The French toast with macerated berries was to die for. Service and atmosphere are great also.

We loved every part of the experience from the moment we walked in. Our server was spectacular (Alex, I think). He chose the perfect North Carolina cheeses and selected an amazing dessert. We’ll definitely be back!

The pleasant and comfortable, inviting ambience sets the mood from ones entry. The food is well created to compliment the other choices. The switch to a "small" plate service was not welcomed since my favorite entrees are no longer a full meal, although the price is the same. The service delivered one entree before any sides to accompany that entree, and then the rest of the sides before the other two entrees. This took away from the pleasure of the entire meal. The server appears to be getting us to order quickly as was the delivery of the food was also quick.

Very much enjoyed the stunning daily special - grilled shrimp atop the watermelon and peach salad. One diner had their famous crispy chicken and another a lovely turkey sand on ciabatta (with delicious fries). Our server was outstanding. The prices are a bit pricey but the selections, preparations and overall experience keeps us coming back to A.O.C. when we feel like a special meal.

I came here for my birthday and had a great time. Wasn't aware that it was primarily small plates but was pleasantly surprised by how filling everything was. The scallops were great, along with the squid ink rice.
Very lovely atmosphere. Happy hour rose' was very good.

Everything was perfect except that one of the servers took away a plate as we were still eating. He also tried to take away our sauce for the Spanish fried chicken, but we stopped him in time. I think it would be nice if we are asked if we are done, especially if there is still food on the plate. Besides that, we will definitely be back.
