Ojai's Best!

Great food beautifully presented, excellent very attentive and friendly service, and a wonderful ambiance--who could ask for more. This must be the best restaurant in Ojai.

Just checking on my favorite restaurant in Ojai. A friend lives there and I have eaten here often. Reading a review about how another reviewer from Florida says it reminds her of Denny's makes me wonder what I am missing? Very few restaurants offer what Suzanne's has. Beautiful food, decor, environment, hospitality and more! Fresh seasonal food along with local... More

The weather was perfect for patio dining so we enjoyed our early dinner on the patio. This was our first visit to Suzannes and it was as expected. We had wine with dinner and of course dessert. There was enough food to take half our meal and half of the dessert home. It was a wonderful experience and will definitely... More

I loved the ambiance and the décor of the restaurant. The garden is very beautiful. But the food was not as good as the reviews said. It was good but not great. I thought my husband's lamb chops had a smell to it. The cheesecake was not very flavorful. The Cesar salad was so average!

We have been here twice. Average overpriced food. The service is very good each visit and we never feel rushed. There are a couple of better choices of in town, but the patio is a lovely place for excellent coffee and dessert. It's a nice place for lunch if you can get patio seating, inside reminds me of Denny's

With a nice patio to be seated on (to take advantage of great weather), The menu selection was good. Wines by the glass were again good, a tad pricey, but perhaps reflective of the quality. The fresh Copper River salmon was delicious, with good accompaniments. Service was good, and overall a quite enjoyable meal.

This restaurant came highly recommended yet we know that can sometimes be a letdown. NOT HERE! We have reminisced about Suzanne 's at least once a week since our visit. It is a true gem. The food and ambiance were superb. We were seated one row back from the garden and we were mesmerized by the setting. Food, service and... More

The patio was booked and reserved but we had a cozy and quiet corner booth table. Soon the restaurant filled up. No, no white Zin here either, most Zinfandels are dark but the alternate offerings were top of the line. All the food is local, exactly local, and fresh. Excellent fine dining experience.

First visit with business associates. Enjoyed a great meal, wonderful wine and my husband's first escargot! Service was very friendly and helpful. You can sit inside or outside, inside can get a bit noisy. Make a reservation! We will for sure come back when in Ojai!
