Moderately good but expensive food in a pretty setting

Lovely setting, attentive service, and fairly good food - however not good enough to justify the somewhat high prices. My roasted beets and fennel with feta cheese was very light on the roasted fennel, a few bits, and heavy on the feta so the dish didn't feel balanced. My husband enjoyed his simple... read more

We went 2 couples. Service was impeccable and food was even better. If you stay in Ojai this is the best place for dinner, they will treat you like royalty and the dishes are great. We had the chimichurri Rib eye, Lamb Chops, Salmon. Great. Loved it.

This is a really good restaurant and they will not disappoint you. I've been there several times and their menu is always creative and the food is delicious. Interesting regional fare, and this part of California has outstanding produce. Best in Ojai and that means alot

they had a sampling of 3 fishes and I had that, salmon, cod and scallop, with wild rice & grilled fresh local veggies, so amazing. Then I had dessert too, it was a chocolate & peanut butter torte & I thought I had died and gone to heaven, it was so good!

The restaurant is lovely from the outside and the (enclosed) patio is especially nice, with a fireplace and water feature. The food is first-rate and the staff was very attentive and friendly. We enjoyed the cod and ahi tuna, both were generously portioned and well prepared. Definitely worth a visit or two.

The restaurant is in converted house set back a bit from the road with some nicely lighted trees at the entrance to the parking area. We arrived about 45 minutes late for a 6:00 pm reservation on a Saturday evening but the staff was very accommodating and seated us immediately. Which was good because it was our anniversary. We ordered... More

We dined at Suzanne's just last night on a trip from LA. They have 3 distinct dining rooms and the majority of the seating was on the back patio. After being seated I asked to be moved to near a heater. The table I requested was already booked but they moved me to another table with a heater that was... More

It was a rainy day in Ojai and we poked around at Bart's Books. I remembered that Suzanne's was voted the #1 restaurant in Ojai and thou we had been to Ojai several times we had never been to Suzanne's. Our experience was 5 star. Prompt service, extensive menu and when served everyone was pleased. Prices were reasonable and we... More
