“Lovely place to have lunch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Friends and I enjoyed a delicious lunch at Suzanne's on a bright sunny day in Ojai. We sat on the small terrace which is surrounded by a garden, flowers and other greenery. It was quiet and peaceful. The waitress was very efficient, polite and friendly. I know its an expensive place to have dinner but lunch is very reasonable and well worth the quality of the food and the ambiance.

“A true culinary jewel in little ol' Ojai!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Suzanne's was recommended by some friends as "The Place to Eat in Ojai." This is a fabulous place with outstanding cuisine!!! It has beautiful ambiance with great service and deliciously different menu options!!! A definite spot for everyone!!! When my husband made the reservation, he mentioned we were celebrating our 33rd anniversary. What a magnificent suprise when our dessert plates arrive. (See photos) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Suzanne's!!!!

“Great ambiance, well presented dishes.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Suzanne's prides itself on service and ambiance and well presented plates. They always have plenty of service personnel and the room is very comfortable. A bit overpriced, but they are the only game in town at their level.

“Not for us”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

I guess is just not for us. We don't like to pick a 100 dollars bill and not fill satisfied with our meal. It was OK, don't get me wrong, but it was not exceptional and in the quality-value balance it was simply pricey. We prefer to go out more often and spend the same money on 3 or 4 less expensive places. My fish was cold, the flavor described was not there and we just didn't feel like going back. However, decided to go just for a latte desert for a birthday. Really disliked that the staf was staking chairs while we waited, when there were more than 5 couples at the restaurant. And again, flavors not as described, but at least we pay less than $30 to learn not to return.

“Fantastic.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

My GF and I stayed in Ojai for a girls weekend in November. Out of all the places we dined during our three day stay, Suzanne's was by far our favorite. Can't wait to return in march.
