Description: For more than ninety years, Ojai Valley Inn & Spa has evolved with the times but throughout it all, The Inn has maintained a connection to its locality – especially through its food. Olivella represents the epitome of this sense of place. A restaurant in Ojai Valley with refined simplicity; showcasing the best each season has to offer, suitable for any occasion. Olivella’s valley-to-table culinary program is supported by the local Ojai valleys, ranches, orchards, farms and ocean waters. We embrace the seasonal whims of the region, focusing on the bounty of year-round produce provided by the California Central Coast. Chef Andrea Rodella is proud to present a dining experience featuring the best ingredients of California with dishes and techniques inspired by his Italian heritage.

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.

Can't find much to complain about here. Maravilla is the hotel's fine dining restaurant and if you want something special, this will not dissappoint.

We ate at Maravilla for our NYE dinner. I believe it was a 5-6 course dinner and it was amazing! We enjoyed every bit. Service was great and did not feel rushed.

What an elegant but not stuffy restaurant! The choices were plentiful enough and my partner had a delicious beet salad and sea bass and I had oysters with a fab dipping sauce and duck breast with almost no fat left over to obscure the meat. A perfect Reisling wine accompanied the food. The crackers and breads were right on as well. We had no room for desert.
