Food was average - ok I suppose for what it was. Neither special or awful. But at the end of the meal we noticed mice running around underneath tables! Unbelievable, we were disgusted.

We had been to AOC once before for lunch, which was very good but not overly memorable. Our recent dinner, however, was excellent. From a lovely, freshly prepared steak tartare, to a fresh and carefully seasoned Dourade with sauce vierge, to a crazily lucious truffle mac & cheese, everything we ordered was very well executed. If you like simple, country... More

My wife found this place from Groupon and we decided to give it a try. It was far from our hotel so we took and cab but it was absolutely work the trek. Our waitress was straight out of France. I could sometimes hardly understand her but she was very good. We ordered the salmon carpaccio, I've personally never seen... More

Last Saturday night, four of us walking around Greenwich Village, and any restaurant with an appealing menu said it would be an hour or more before a table was available. (Hadn't had time to try to make a reservation, so it was our fault that we were wandering.) Store front had a poster with Oysters pictured attracted us to A.O.C.... More

The AOC is not very busy in the morning during the week. I had a very delicious breakfast with good Coffee and very good Baguette accompanying the Omlette. The frensh music creates a very cozy atmosphere and the service was nice and fast

Nice atmosphere, good (not great) food, large portions - but frozen chips! Our third visit and it would have garnered a four star review had it not been for the sad end to the evening. I added 15% tip - and was told that it wasn't enough! I'm personally tired of the way that large tips are expected - hey!... More

The menu looked promising, the setting was quiet and French, but the service was slow and aloof. We ordered simply a croque madam and Monsieur. When it finally came 30 min later, the fries were wilted and the sandwiches tepid warm. It clearly had been left under the heat lamps and forgotten. I can see how the food could be... More

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
