Suzanne's is a destination restaurant for many Ojai visitors. Everything is great: the ambience inside or in the garden, the menu for lunch and dinner, and all at a fair price. We have lived here since 2011 we love to take visitors for lunch or go for dinner on our anniversary. Our dinner favorite is prime rib with blue cheese.... More

This was our first visit to Suzanne's. We were greeted and promptly seated by the lovely fire - great for a cold January evening We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here and the service from Keri was excellent. I had a delicious pork loin with a yummy mustard sauce and my husband had the salmon with LOTS of vegetables. My dessert... More

The restaurant had wonderful food in a very pleasant setting. Because I am writing this review so long after eating there, I won't be able to put together as detailed as review as normal. My wife and I really did enjoy this restaurant.

I have wanted to eat here for years and it is usually booked so I felt lucky to get a last minute lunch reservation. It was worth the wait- the food and surroundings were wonderful. A great start to a great trip!

The breadth of the menu flattens out the quality of the food. Better to have several GREAT meals than 30 average ones. Service is good and wine list is stellar (for a pinot drinker especially). Feels a little dated.

What a lovely restaurant! We attempted to sit on the patio cause it's cute, but it was just a little too warm for us, nice that they had heaters though! Had a fabulous dinner inside, the Bouillabaisse was fantastic as were their scallops! Service was great, wine was great, food also great! We'll be back!

Always a pleasure to eat at Suzanne's where the ambiance, carefully crafted food, and fine array of fine food create a jolly meal.

Suzanne's was well recommended so we walked in perhaps with higher expectations than were warranted, also it was a busy pre Christmas evening with a full dining room. Goods: The service was excellent- when my server overheard me telling my husband the pork was tough she instantly offered a replacement dish. Bads: if we hadn't sent mine back we would... More

Suzanne's has been the "go-to" dining experience in our previous six or seven visits, but was a little disappointing this time. 1. We and four other guests (not in our party) arrived at 5:26 for 5:30 reservations. The outdoor temp was in the high 30's. The staff inside busily ignored us until exactly 5:30 (the posted opening time). Suzanne's prerogative,... More
