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.

“5 Stars... And, nothing less”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We celebrated our 43rd Anniversary at Maravilla... I can't think of anything or anywhere else to go for a more perfect evening.

The service was attentive, but not overbearing. The food was spectacular. The bar was excellent. The young man entertaining in the lounge was world class... If you're looking for a special place to celebrate a special event, this is it!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Clean, straight-ahead preparations of classic California cuisine with an absolutely top-notch staff. Don't be afraid to try local wines by the glass; Ojai Vineyard's offerings are a can't miss!

“Excellent service, ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This is a nice restaurant, but our dishes had some flaws. We expected better from a restaurant with this reputation and price point. The steak was not a typical filet cut and was not cooked properly (cold in the center), the potato croquette was nothing exciting and the kale in the vegetable pasta had visible strings and was tough. No complaints about the service, though. Our waiter was excellent.
