We recently dined here with a party of six and had a most delightful meal. To begin with, the restaurant is beautiful and illustrative of Early California ambience. We were greeted warmly by the staff and were made to feel welcome. The service was impeccable. Our server Fabiola was knowledgeable and attentive. The food was excellent, well prepared, and fresh....

Kate was our waitress and she was enthusiastic and engaged. I was impressed by her knowledge of the menu and her authentic style. I had the scallops and the citrus salad. The presentation of the scallop dish was exceptional.

The locations is superb, the service well trained and the wine list (and Steve the sommelier) awesome. I felt the food was not off the scale spectacular though it was top end prices. An early booking on the terrace gets you a terrific view of the sunset and the all round experience is extremely pleasant.

Local wines for $8 and discounted apps - truffle fries and syrah, please. Sit inside for a cozy bar scene or outside and enjoy the Topah Topah Mountains

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

Setting and ambience were wonderful, service was gracious and deft, and the quality and presentation of the food dishes was inspired and amazingly tasty. 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!
