I marked this "average" even though ut's a bit better than that; but it needs something to push it up over "4". If you've never eaten in Ojai before, you won't be disappointed.

The surroundings are excellent. The service is top notch. The food is to die for. This is one fantastic restaurant. We will go back every time we are in Ojai.

I am a pretty tough customer when it comes to creative cuisine. I had high hopes for this place. I picked it out as a lunch destination in ojai because it was highly reviewed for creativity and ambience. I was delighted. Knowing I was having desert, I picked a salad. Smoked chicken, freshest of greens, sun dried tomatoes, pine nuts... More

My husband and I went to Suzanne's for our anniversary, and we had a wonderful evening. We had been there twice before, but not for over ten years. It was just as we remembered. I had pan seared scallops in a Thai coconut curry sauce - simply delicious. The service was wonderful, and the patio seating by the fire was... More

We actually met Suzanne herself at the end of the dinner. But much before that, right from making a reservation, it was very smooth, the waitress knew about the occassion already, gave us a great vegetarian option and even brought complimentary mousse and icecream with a beautiful candle at the end :)

Loved the fish dinner and special tangerine drinks that I had. The dessert looked awesome as well, but didn't have room to try it. Tried to go back for another meal two nights later but couldn't get a table on the patio. Would definitely go back!

Without a doubt one of the best restaurants, food is always excellent and so is the service! Of course it is difficult to choose because I have my favorites: The mussels, liver and the filet mignon with blue cheese are killer. Wonderful wine list and there are always some interesting specials - also a great place to go for lunch!

We were there, unfortunately, over Valentine's weekend so all the meals were a hefty fixed price for 3 items (no substitutions!). The food was good - not extraordinary though. The service was just OK and a bit unfriendly. The room(s) are really fun/eclectic and romantic. Not sure I'd return, but if I did, it would be to give it another... More

We returned to Ojai and Suzanne's Cuisine and again enjoyed food of outstanding quality! We celebrated once a New Years Eve at Suzanne's and still talking about the special place this restaurant is! The food - we tried Fuillet of Bison - and the service - WOW! Thank you - we will return!

Suzanne's sometimes get a bad rap for expensive food and lackluster service. We were there on December 30, and even though the restaurant was busy, we were treated like honored guests. The food was so delicious - cornish game hen - yum - and we were seated near a fireplace. The tables weren't packed in just because it was a... More
