my partner and I went to AOC yesterday, hoping for a nice romantic dinner instead we received poor service, food that was mediocre and overly priced . We've been here a few times with friends and decided this was the last, NYC is full of excellant restaurants so why settle for a place that thinks they can get away with such poor quality just because they are viewed as "french," trust me find another restaurant.

AOC used to be one of those "decent" local restaurants - nothing special but the food was decent, the prices were decent, and the service was almost decent. In the last few months, they replaced a few of the junkier tables and chairs, printed new menus and jacked up the prices by about 30%. It is outrageous as the quality of food, service, and atmosphere remains completely unchanged. AOC is now for the turistas. - we locals are smart enough to avoid.

I have never seen service so disappointing. I went for my birthday. There were 8 of us. They lost our reservation. Drink orders never came. We went to the bar to get drinks after realizing the waiter wouldn't return. Bartender said that always happens because "The service sucks." The waiter was confused when we asked for the water to be refilled during meal. Entrees were brought before appetizers. Some apps and entrees came out simultaneously - some people had no food - one friend didn't get her meal until the minute before the check came. Atrociously bad. I'm a food person, I like a garden environment but despite the food being fairly good I would never darken their door again. EVER.

Went for lunch, party of four, sat out back, very nice atmosphere. Omlets were good, sandwich was good, fries were very good. Service could improve but overall a nice resonably priced spot for lunch in an area where the choices are endless.

We walked in off the street because another restaurant had an hour wait. We were seated in the front corner, ignored, waited over an hour for disappointing mussels (watching people I'm the main area who were seated after us enjoying their meals). Left hungry, angry and disappointed. Avoid, there's far too many restaurants in the wv for this amateur service.

I really like this place, but the woman on the phone can be really rude!

"When one has tasted it he knows what the angels eat" - Mark Twain. Let me make it clear that this was a place that even the ghost of Mark Twain wouldn't venture near. I went here with a few friends and ordered the escargot & confit de canard. The ecargot were chewy and sadly done. The confit de canard was surely reheated and an unfortunate choice. The plus side was sitting by the windows watching the people walking by (to eat decent food - presumably!) I might visit again but not to eat - more to sit by the window and watch the world go by...
