Friendly, efficient staff and a beautiful garden view

The staff is so friendly, very lively and efficient. This restaurant makes me feel at home. I love the overview by staff, always seeing that coffee and water are always refilled. Never any unhappy patrons here.

Mediocre food with a high price tag. Clueless staff who actually avoided answering any questions with an educated direct answer. I can't believe this place charges what they do for the quality of food. Wine list is okay but very run of the mill so to speak and the staff is not educated on the wines at all. Waste of... More

I am so thankful to Suzanne's Cuisine for being the most incredible venue for my wedding reception. THANK YOU! They were so kind and accommodating. The filet was the best I have ever had. We love Suzannes!

Disappointing. My daughter has numerous food allergies. The Ojai Resort contacted the restaurant beforehand and sent the food allergy list to them. When asking about food options my daughter was offered salmon and steamed spinach. When she asked about other options she was told "if she was the only one in the restaurant....." My bouillabaisse was delicious but the festive... More

These reviews are mind boggling as this restaurant would not stand up in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco or even Bellingham Washington as even a 3 star restaurant! Having lived in Ojai for quite awhile I am very familiar with all the restaurants here. I suspect they are number one by a "hair". Saying this is the best in... More

We stayed at the Lavender Inn and this restaurant was listed in the Concierge list of restaurants around town. I immediately honed on this little gem and suggested we dine there on our first night in town. It was Friday night and we weren't sure how difficult it would be to get a reservation but the hostess was very accommodating... More

Not a lot of fine dining in town. We decided to visit because of the great reviews. Attentive service, some unusual dishes, and priced about right for the quality. The wine list was expensive though! We loved the Shrimp dumplings and beet salad. The pasta was pretty good. Bouillabaisse was great and the seafood all fresh. Desserts all really looked... More

We were a group of forty two but Suzanne's managed fast, efficient service and hot, delicious food. The atmosphere in the covered, outdoor patio was warm and inviting. Our group had a great time.
