Really cosy place with lovely food. It's friendly and chatty and the food is the very best quality, old fashioned French. We had a great evening and I would recommend it to anyone.

Service was decent. OK...food was mediocre. Coq au Vin was fair. Tasty enough but very bony. Looks like they cut the chicken in large pieces and cooked it...but it was so dark in the restaurant you couldn't really see the food you were eating. Lots...More

A.O.C is such a great space! It seems like a lot of the other restaurants on the block but venture out to the back and that outdoor space is something to behold. With a mural of Paris on the wall, song with the perfect setting...More

There are tables in the back that are cozy. The food on offer is of a good variety. Try any Canard dish (duck) ..delicious. Of course being French cuisine, the sauces are prominent. The Wit staff is great and the music as ambience is superb.

This cozy, and dimly lit space has lots of charm and is reminiscent of a little Parisian bistro. You are close to your neighbors, yet somehow the noise level is not distracting and it was easy to have a conversation. The food was amazing. Coq...More

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
