We tried Suzanne's based on the recommendation from our B&B, and it was terrific. From the first moment we had a feeling of warmth and relaxation. The room with its garden view is beautiful. The wait staff was very attentive and professional, and all the dishes were excellent. Save room for dessert. For a dinner of this quality, the price... More

Wifey and I came here on the recommendation from the concierge at the Ojai Valley Inn. We loved it. Shrimp dumplings & duck patte for apps were awesome! I had the rib eye and she had the scallops. Everything was so delicious. The concierge nailed it. We will be back next time in Ojai.

I book at least two business dinners a year at this restaurant and the service is first class. The porch is the place to be and the food is excellent. Sandra has a great staff and they treat everyone like royalty.

My LD and I had lunch on their back patio overlooking the garden and fountain. The food was outstanding. I had their Crab Salad which was light and delicious. My LD had the Meatball Sandwich which she said was so good. We shared the Chocolate Mousse dessert which we both enjoyed. Just wish it was closer to home.

I have been going here since she opened and never once been disappointed about anything. The reason is the owner Suzanne it was never about making money. She does Suzanne's as an act of love. Knowing that let's me order anything any time and its great.

The back garden was very nice. The drinks were great as was the service. The escargot were sublime- leave yourself some bread because the butter and garlic begs to be dipped in. The local Filet was cooked perfectly, and could not have been more tender- I know purists will disagree, because it was amazing on its own, but add the... More

Had a delicious anniversary dinner at Suzanne's on the back patio. Good service, great pasta and shrimp dish. I recommend the cheese stuffed zucchini flowers for the appetizer. Their martinis are also very good.

I've been to Suzanne several times. Never sat inside before. The food is great and I was enjoy the atmosphere. However, the last time I was there by myself I sat inside the house. This may seem strange but the floor creaks. I mean loudly. With staff always passing by the creaking is distracting to the point where I had... More

Suzanne's Cuisine serves honest, deftly prepared and ample portions of good food with a touch of originality in a lovely venue convenient to Ojai's central district. We especially appreciated how friendly the menu is for diners with an intolerance for gluten. Try to sit out back in an are overlooking the garden.
