  1. It was easy to get a reservation with Open Table for brunch on a Saturday morning. The neighborhood is easily accessible and delightful to walk through. The place itself is cute and clean. The food is phenomenal and priced perfectly for the quality and serving size. I had the Feuille de Brique and my mother had the Croque Monsieur. Both of which were tasty and will definitely bring me back. The waitstaff was courteous, but kind of confusing as we had a server and then other attendants who helped with water and bussing, so lots of people around the table.

  2. The vibe is absolutely amazing. With the hidden dining space in the back and a outdoors yard to bath yourself in sunshine, it's one of the best to go places for weekend brunch

    However, I did not enjoy the service. I called to make a reservation, which was not noted. No one served the table, even for water, after 5 minutes I sat down. The waitress took our orders with a contemptuous look, not responsive for additional orders and very impatient while serving.

    This place truly deserve higher ratings if it has better service. Hope my experience is not representative.

  3. Wasn't impressed.

    +1 star for the outdoor seating, cute atmosphere.  +1 star because the meal was okay, although I didn't feel that it was anything to write home about.

    Went here last night for dinner.  Service was HORRIBLE.  Place wasn't packed at all, although it did look as though they were understaffed.  Wasn't sure if the bread basket contained actual bread or rocks inside of it.  It took about 20 minutes to get someone to take the drink order.  I figured I'd order then because it would be another 20-30 minutes til I saw him again.  After ordering the waiter had to come back 2-3 times to confirm what was ordered, although I don't understand what was so complex about the order since it was something already on the menu and there were no substitutions made.

    I won't be back. Too many other cute restaurants in the neighborhood to chose from.

  4. We have been to this place 3 or 4 times in the past year for weekend brunch. We always take advantage of their weekend special $1.00 oysters at the bar. We start our with a dozen each with a glass of white wine. Then we split one of the egg dishes. Oysters sometimes before noon may sound strange, they are cold and very fresh and a real treat.
    The bartender has been the same guy all the time we have been there and the last few times he remembered us. Always nice. This place fills up for weekend brunch at about 11:30 and stays busy all day.

  5. My friend and I found ourselves on Bleecker street around dinner time and were looking for someplace to go.  We saw AOC and noticed that they had an outdoor space in the back and since it was 70 degress in November (CRAZY!) we decided to go there.  It's super cute, and the outdoor space is pretty big.  There was only one other table filled outside when we got there, but they the time we left it was pretty packed.  

    My friend and I were kind of debating on having the same things, so we decided to share.  We started with the smaller portion (sans fries) of mussels in the white wine sauce and were going to share the seafood pasta as our main.   The mussels were a good sized portion, and so good!  We finished the whole thing, and used the bread to soak up the white wine sauce left over, again, so good!  The pasta was really good too.  It was black pasta and there were shrimps, clams and mussels in it. It might have been a bit big for one person (or maybe not) but sharing was perfect and we finished that too.  Then we couldn't not look at the dessert menu..  We shared the chocolate mousse, which again was really good!  

    We really lucked out with the weather, it was so nice to be able to eat there outside.  Also I thought everything was really reasonably priced.  After sharing an app, a main and dessert plus a glass of wine each it was under $50 a person with tip.  Definitely not bad! Would love to come back again.

  6. A.O.C. is a charming French bistro in the West Village, with an awesome Happy Hour ($5 glasses of wine until 7pm). My Book Club read a Parisian novella, so this was a perfect spot to talk about the book's drama, humor and romance.

    We started with the Mac & Cheese, a dish that is quickly becoming my "go to" at every restaurant. It was delicious with a crispy baked topping. And for my entrée, I opted for the Seafood Puff Pastry, which included shrimp, scallops and mussels in a cream sauce over a bed of spinach, all in a light pastry shell.

    I understand they have a cute backyard area, and I can't wait to come back in the springtime.

  7. The inside looks vintage-y but casually trendy. Had a sandwich that was tasty with too many fries to finish but I like that they were big portions. I like to choose whether I'll pig out or not! It's somewhat expensive for what it is but that's to be expected in the area. The staff was friendly making the overall mood awesome to stay and chat during a calm, sunny, brunch.

    I want to go back!

  8. Second time visiting this fine French establishment! I am also from France and this is legitimate amazing French fare 🙂

    We shared the merguez and fries for appetizer. Loved the thinly crispy fries and the dipping brown-onion sauce! Yum yum yum!!

    We tried the special that day: cassoulet! My favorite when I was a little girl and it was very good. I thought the beans were a little too cooked, but I loved every pieces of meat in there. Just like home! Also had the frisée, lardon, and poached egg salad. That had always been one of my favorite French staple! Every time I go home, I request frisée and lardons to my mom!

    Our waiter was awesome and his accent so thick you could cut it with a knife -loved him and he happy demeanor!
