After moving back East, I made my first trip back to Ojai and Suzanne's Cuisine-----could it possibly be as good as I remembered from the early 90's?! Amazingly so!!! It's no wonder they've held this coveted spot as the #1 TripAdvisor restaurant in Ojai for so long! My husband ordered the lamb---superior! My pasta, with asparagus, arugula & sun-dried tomatoes...

We loved the backyard garden and the service was good! I had the salmon, which I thought was good, but the vegetables that were served with it were not properly prepared. They tasted like they came out of a freezer bag. My husband had a spaghetti and meatballs dish which was marginal at best. The marinara sauce was thin and... More

Took my mother to Suzanne's for lunch on a very chilly afternoon. She was throughly impressed by the delightful ambiance of the dining room and the delicious cuisine. Suzanne's is consistently good and IS the best restaurant in Ojai. Worth the expense.

We liked the dishes available on the menu, the ambience, and the service. We knew that it was going to be one of the more expensive restaurants in Ojai, but the quality and service were commensurate with the prices.

We had New Years Eve at Suzannes. It was festive, fabulous and we had a great time people watching while waiting for our wonderful food...oysters for me, handmade ravioli for my husband and then roast duck for both of us, along with complementary pink champagne

We were 5 and an 18 month old baby. Excellent food, professional service, warm atmosphere. The high chair was already in place, and we were made to feel welcome from the word go. I would go back anytime. We had been there same time last year and they have kept up their standards.

Not only is Suzanne's Cuisine the best food in Ojai, it might be the best food in Southern California. Always perfect. I particularly love the sand dabs. The ambience and service are great.

An unpretentious restaurant in Ojai. The food was very good and the portions more than ample. Deserts were outrageous. Possibly the best restaurant in the town.
