Suzanne's is probably the best restaurant in Ojai. My brother hosted a dinner for 65+ people on their patio. The service was exceptional. The food absolutely delicious. And the ambience was lovely sitting right next to the garden. I don't know how they served so many people and had the steak/pork cooked to perfection on each and every dish. Everything... More

This is a beautiful environment and the food is very good. I especially enjoy it for a special lunch near the glass window on the garden. Be sure to make a reservation to be near the garden. I have also been there for dinner and they have good wines and excellent full meals. Exterior is also beautiful and inviting. High... More

We arrived for an early lunch without a reservation and because the patio was already filled we were happy to be seated at an indoor table. The atmosphere is casual and refined, with white linens, hanging plants and large trumpet vases holding white lilies. The staff wore brown t-shirts bearing a variety of pleasantries, such as “have desert,” “ drink... More

Incredible food, incredible service, incredible atmosphere. My husband had the smoked duck and said the next day all he wanted to to eat that dinner again!

Best dining in Ojai. The covered back patio is casual yet relaxing and romantic. There are overhead heaters, a lovely fireplace and fans - so no matter the weather, it is comfortable dining outdoors. Service is casual and staff appropriately attentive. Sandra, the Manager, is wonderful. The menu has something for everyone. Escargot, Blue Cheese Caesar Salad are two of... More

We ate here for a business dinner of 70 people. The food was great and the service was spot on. Great place to eat.

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.
