Brought some new friends here for lunch during our stay in Ojai and they loved the food so much we can back for lunch again the next day. The last time I was here it was still the old building with the take-out window delivery system and so the new atmosphere and patios are terrific; The food is still so... More

We asked locals for the best Happy Hour. The place most mentioned was Sea Fresh. We checked it out. The drink specials were fine, nothing special, but the Happy Hour appetizers were great! The two of us filled up on good seafood on the patio for 20 bucks. Big fun. And our server Raymond was a treat. Check it out!

They offer a variety of food and the prices are descent. They have wild salmon but it is 4 dollars more than the farm salmon. They allow you to make the decision. The service is good and the inside seating has Air and the outside seating is covered and has fans or heaters for the winter dining. We had lunch... More

Very popular restaurant- dog friendly on one side of the patio. If you don't like dogs, be aware. Very "pricey" for a family of 6. When busy or new staff very slow service.

While staying in OJAI for a week with family at an AirBnB house we took Saturday night off from the family and had a dinner for two at the Sea Fresh Seafood restaurant. The seafood was fresh; and the service was attentive. While in OJAI, CA make this your first stop for a seafood meal.

We recommend the Spicy Tuna tartare with its unique Wasabi sauce ! We love the Ceviche ! The Halibut is also excellent always But there are so many other dishes to be tried and appreciated, including a full sushi bar menu . One of the top places in that lovely town - has been there since such a long time.... More

Everybody was very friendly and accommodating. There was a couple of changes to the regular serving and these were handled with no problem. I ordered the calamari and chips and asked for the chips, well done and they came done perfect. I will definitely return.

I have friends that rave about this place so I decided to check it out. I ordered grilled shrimp and vegetables and when my order came to me I expected my shrimp to be grilled. The vegetables were grilled but it didn't look like the shrimp had even been touched by the grill and it was a little disappointing, to... More

Visiting in town and I insisted on hubby eating here because last summer the food was delish. We were not disappointed. While we got there late, the service was good. I got the impression the waiter was trying to discourage hubby from getting sushi...but he could not be persuaded after I reported my sushi last summer was terrific. We ordered... More

Happy hour was a great experience. Good cheap bar food with cheap mimosas. After happy hour food and drinks add up very quickly. Gets very busy and it feels as though the staff are rushing you out, however overall a good time was had.
