“Delightful lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

Checked in to our hotel only to have to wait for our room to be ready. Concierge suggested Suzanne's. Got there near end of lunch but they happily seated us. Warm and friendly service, busy with graduation families and visitors. Interesting menu, delicious food, excellent service. Wanted to return for dinner one night during our stay, but didn't have enough time...next time. Sweet garden outside plus patio seating.

“A great spot in Ojai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We had dinner at Suzanne's on a Friday evening in May and it was truly an exceptional experience. Our server was most attentive and catering to our needs. For example, she brought us a bowl of olives when we told her we couldn't have any bread because we were on a weight loss program. For starters we had asparagus soup and a special salad with Pixie tangerines, both of which were outstanding. My wife had a whole trout as an entree and I had a lamb shank. Both were beautifully presented and really tasty (my wife was also offered sauteed spinach in place of rice which was a thoughtful touch).

The whole evening was just a pleasure and we will surely return to Suzanne's on our next trip north from San Diego

“A Highlight of Ojai Dining Experiences”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

We went to Suzanne's Cuisine the first night of a four-day stay in Ojai and it set a high bar for outstanding dining experiences for the rest of our trip. In addition to the great service and extensive menu, Suzanne's offers a wonderful ambiance, both the dining room and patio areas. Especially like the tables that face the garden. We were lucky to get a table for two without reservations -- the only table left. Split all but the entree courses. Highly recommend the dumpling and edamame salad; the special pixie salad, bouillabaisse, meatballs and fusilli, and the Cafe Liegeios De La Maison. Great cocktail menu and wine list.

“Brought back memories of France”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

We happened upon Suzanne's by mistake. What a pleasant surprise. The outside gardens are what drew us in for a closer look. The roses are magnificent. We were happy to find out that they had gluten free options and decided to stay. We were seated in the outdoor patio area. What a romantic atmosphere. Nice choice of local wines. The waitress gave the rundown of specials. There were several tempting choices. I went with the grilled cheese and ham, which the chef gladly modified for me with gluten free bread and left out the special sauce which had flour in it. There were three different cheeses and the sauce was not missed. My husband had the fresh grilled veggie wrap that was grilled to perfection. Still had a nice crunch to it. The waitress was excellent but not intrusive. We ended the leisurely lunch with coffee and cappachino. Unfortunately no room for a nice selection of tempting desserts including homemade gelato. The ladies room had a great bouquet of huge asiatic lilies which permeated the room. The luncheon pricing was very reasonable. Don't pass this one up if you are in the vicinity. Well worth the drive. Great little town.

“Always delightful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Cuisine, service, menu choices are always tops! Suzanne has great flair for creating specials that tempt and meet expectations - as well as her standards of sand dabs, liver, and fabulous salads!
A top cave with interesting choices...bon appetite!
