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.

“Excellent”

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 23, 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.

“Great service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

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.
