Ojai valley is a small town with unique Spanish architecture character about an hour away from LA with few good restaurants. This restaurant is probably the most upscale one in Ojai area located as part of the Ojai Valley Inn & spa hotel which is connected to a very beautiful golf course. A bit more formal fine dining place serving... More

My LD and I had dinner on a Friday evening. They sat us a great table with a view of the setting sun. Our server was very informative with the menu and referred me to the gluten free options. He recommended a superb bottle of California Cabernet Sauvignon. They even served me a gluten free bread basket which I have... More

There is a lot of variety on the menu from fresh vegetables that are grown organically and locally. The meat choices from fish, beef, pork, venison, free range chicken, something yummy for everyone! The menu is very creative which is so nice to see and enjoy!

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
