Let me first start by saying prior to sitting down we asked if they were still serving food. The owners welcomed us and we sat outside. The waitress was rude, and acted like she was doing us a favor by serving us. After getting our food, they started rushing us to finish our meal so they could close. We sat outside so one of the workers was bringing all the tables in and literally forced us out because he wanted to go home. The quality of the food was disappointing. The bread was stale, the chicken sandwich I ordered lacked chicken, the beverages were warm when they were suppose to be cool at the very least. So, to mention it took forever to get our food, when we did it was cold and beverages warm, and the top of the event the waitress had a major attitude. Take my advice the place is empty for a reason.

We just left from this place, literally left the place without ordering food. We arrived at 1pm for brunch on a nice spring Saturday. We got a table immediately because the place was virtually empty. I think there were only 3 tables that had people and all of them were already midway through their meals. We started off with coffee which was brought promptly EXCEPT it was cold. I asked for another cup and was brought one with a bread basket. All was good but after that, no service followed! We waited 15 mins to have the waitress come over and take our order but nothing! She looked over at our side but ignored us. There was a guy who seemed like the manager who just stood there with a blank look. Now mind you, we were the only table that didn't have food yet on the table and besides us, there were only 2 other tables already eating so there's no excuse for slow or lack of service because the place was not busy at all! After waiting about 15 mins, I finally got up to talk to the manager-looking guy and told him that no one has bothered to come over to our table to take our orders and I told him I just wanted to pay for my coffee and leave. He apologized but at that point, we were just so disappointed in the 25 mins we were in there and didn't even get to have a taste of on their menu-- which I have to admit looked promising. The guy gave me the check for the coffee. I've been in the service/hospitality industry for a few years and managed a restaurant in Chelsea and in a situation like that, I would've comped the coffee for a dissatisfied customer but like I said, this place did not have any type of service at all!

Went for a casual lunch with a client, hoping for a nice meal. The kitchen, on a Friday, was completely out of chicken. Hmmm... tough to operate a restaurant with a major protein missing. When my sandwich arrived, many minutes later, it had the wrong side, and when I asked the waitress to replace it, she gestured rudely that I'd have to wait to speak to her--she was busy shooting the breeze with one of her pals in the doorway. Riiiight. The sandwich itself was mediocre, and the service pretty much sucked. I definitely will not be going back.

Based on a friend's raves about AOC in NYC, I took another friend here for her Bday . The food was totally delicious & the service was attentive. The waitress was very friendly & helpful. We started w/escargot which was mouth-wateringly good. The same can be said for the le mer seafood risotto--just divine. I had the lamb shank w/wonderful veggies which was outstanding. We picked the poached pear dessert to share cuz it was very b-day like w/whip cream, ice cream & choc. sauce--another winner! I usually eat in less expensive places, except when it comes to a celebration. The prices were not outrageous & did fit the occasion. My friend & I throughly enjoyed her Bday dinner.

I just got back from Brunch at AOC Bistro, and I loved it! The brunch menu is very fairly priced and the food was delicious. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive as well. I will definitely be back for brunch again and again, and will be sure to try dinner in the near future as well!

My husband and I were apartment searching in Park Slope and just happened upon this bistro-- the place was packed, we were seated right away, the food was amazing and the service was ridiculously attentive. I dropped my knife, and before I got down to pick it up there was a busboy giving me a new one. My water glass was never less than half full. The waiter and hostess were both friendly, passing by the table and checking on us. We ate the lamb sausage sandwhiches (huge portion, excellently cooked and spiced) and had the most relaxing and delicious time! We can't wait to move to Park Slope and make this our regular joint! We live in the city now, have eaten in all parts, and I can't say we've found a better bistro than this. My only comment-- don't order the apple tartin, it's not the best :) aside from that, this place can't be beat!

For the price we paid, the food was mediocre, and the portions, small. The bread is served cold, with frozen butter. Ordered a steak dish (I never had a smaller sized piece of steak in all my dining experiences), served with potato gratin (tasted like burned cheese), and a bed of greens that they probably use to mask how little was actually on the plate. And the worst part of all, was that they only take American express cards - actually had to leave the restaurant to withdraw cash! If you're going to charge the price that you do for food, at least do your customers a favor and accept other major credit cards. It's kind of ridiculous - at least advertise that fact before giving them the bill! Will definitely not return - there are much better restaurants in the area, at much better value.
