Sweet service, horrid food.

Was so excited to try this place, got there early and got a table, ordered wine and salads and mains. Server was attentive and friendly, and not hover-y, despite the growing hordes outside the door. The bread and olive oil was the star of the show. Why didn't they use some on the salad? So... read more

What fun we had at this restaurant in Ojai! Lovely little place with so much energy on a Saturday night! All the food was outstanding and service top notch! We shared a number of menu items family style and they were so good with that thus, we all got to try a lot of different tastes...all good! Would definitely return... More

As a past resident of Ojai, I would eat here with some frequency. I have since moved out of California but last November I returned to Ojai and join friends at OMG for dinner. We all ordered different dishes which all came with a cooked green either mixed into the dish or on the side. It was terribly bitter and... More

I'm a local and have been to OMG several times. I have never been disappointed. Always a warm experience and you won't go home hungry.

We decided to return to O.M.G. for a dinner, because our lunch-time experience was so good. We arrived at their 5:30pm opening time to find a line of a dozen people already waiting. It's obviously a very popular place in Ojai. Within 30 minutes, the place was packed and people were waiting to be seated. Overall, the experience was good,... More

This restaurant has it!s entrance off the Ojai arcade but includes a very pleasant patio for out door dining in the back. All told we ate three lunches here over a 4 week stay - attribute to how much we enjoyed it. Attractive surroundings, professional service and consistently good food.

Had a lovely dinner for two at the Osteria last night, where service was exceptionally friendly and helpful (without being intrusive) and everything we ordered was truly excellent, including a delightfully crisp white wine from the proprietor's family vineyard in Italy. Especially recommend the bacala - poached cod served over polenta with a lovely sauce fragrant of fresh tarragon and... More

We were in town for the weekend, and decided to have dinner at OMG after receiving a recommendation from the bartender at The Ojai Vinyard bar. We arrived early and the restaurant was not open for dinner, so we decided to do some window shopping in the shops nearby. When we returned to the restaurant 20 minutes later, the dining... More
