Description: Our style of food is inspired by the abundant natural diversity and rich ingredients of our valley and local California region. We are fortunate to have our own two acre chef's garden. In addition to the bounty that surrounds us, we are also within miles of the finest wineries in Central California. Our Mediterranean climate allows for a year round growing season.

Sit outside on the upstairs terrace, order a Martini and wait for the famed Ojai 'Pink Moment'. Pass on the Ribeye, dry and salty. Filet very good. Staff is the best!

The view? Lovely, The service? Very good. The food? Ordinary at best and especially disappointing given the reviews, the setting and the prices. Perhaps if the Maravilla offered more local cuisine or even a more expansive menu the chef might be better able to rise to the level of the surroundings — a sumptuous resort and spa. But perhaps that's... More

Beautiful view of mountains and sunset. Excellent but pricey wine list. Food not as expected, just okay. Scallops were done perfectly, crab cakes done well, but food lacked zing. Service very attentive. This was our anniversary and the congratulations became over the top. Sit on the terrace, enjoy the sunset, don't go for a gourmet meal and be prepared for... More

If you stay at the spa, you owe it to your self to have... More

Best way to enjoy Mother's Day. We faced out to the stunning views over looking the golf course and back part of the Ojai Valley Inn and Resort. The dinner and the service were excellent - the lobster basques was incredible and our steaks and the bernaise sauce were perfect!

We were staying at the hotel and had dinner here our first night of our stay. The service was wonderful but the long blonde hair I fished out of my mouth from my bite of the scallop dish was not.

This was a wonderful restaurant - good for a special occasion or just to kick off the start to a weekend. Try the porkbelly appetizer, or the scallops to start and the steak or lobster for dinner
