A lovely little local place, with fantastic food and a beautiful staff ... nice people. Chicken panini was excellent, and the fettuccine alfredo w/chicken was sublime.

Papa Lennon's is a absolute gem! It's a perfect neighborhood restaurant, casual, quirky and with a very nice staff of locals. But the food is truly exceptional, I have sent many, MANY guests to Papa Lennon's and everyone has absolutely adored it. The tomatoes and salads are fresh and flavorful, nothing corporate here! All fresh and savory. My favorite is... More

Food was good, service was decent, but the final bill astounded us! Three people, pizza, salad, a bottle of wine, a beer and a lemonade, dessert, tax and a small tip... $150.00. OMG!!! If we return, it will be pizza only, and take-out so we can drink our wine at home. Good food, but certainly not worth the price. We... More

My new favorite restaurant in Ojai. We ride the Ojai bike path monthly and always go out to breakfast or lunch. Found this place while searching for a new restaurant on Tripadvisor. Couldn't have picked a better place. Ordered a pizza, soup and garlic fries to share. Everything was great, The best part was the serine atmosphere of the outside... More

The salads, pizzas and sandwiches are exceptional for the price. And the courtyard setting is delightful. Plenty of room for kids and pets. And the music is delightful. While usually its a solo singer/guitar player singing songs from the 60's and 70's, I was blessed to be there when these descendants of the Lennon Sisters had an extended family reunion... More

Yesterday afternoon we ate at Papa Lennon's. My wife had a chicken and brie panini and I had a house salad and garlic fries. The food was fine - nice portion size - served hot and fresh and the price was fine ($24.67 food & one iced tea + one soda). If the food, price ambiance (we sat on the... More

Standing in line to place an order is not my favorite thing to do, but once we were seated in the relaxed patio of this place, everything was great. I had the caesar salad and my husband had a chicken panini. Both were excellent, and we enjoyed a slow conversation over local beer.
