Description: We at Azu believe the best dishes are made from fresh ingredients. We look to the local farmers that we know grow quality organic and natural produce, that help give our menu that special California twist. Our bar menu is filled with craft cocktails with juices squeezed right from Ojai's citrus orchards where are bartenders hand pick fruit to help make the perfect mimosa, martini's, and Richies famous Bloody Mary. We love supporting our California wineries, breweries, farmers, and hormone free companies. We buy locally and organically whenever possible and strive to add a California twist to our Spanish inspired menu. For over 10 years, Owner and Chef Laurel Moore has taken this inspiration and has created a ambiance and menu that has the feel of a mediterranean retreat, authentic destination, and local Ojai escape.

Ate at Azu earlier this month; first visit was a year and a half ago and I've looked forward to going back ever since. Killer menu, perfect for sharing, excellent service. Put Azu on your list of not-to-be-missed restaurants in the Ojai/Santa Barbara/Ventura area.

I have been coming to Ojai for many years and this was our first time trying this restaurant and I am disappointed that I did not try it sooner. A Mediterranean flavor with a tapas menu. I had the seafood paella and it was awesome. We started with some tapas apps - incl the fried calamari which was exceptional. I could tell that a ton of care was paid to all the dishes. My daughter had the chicken dish and it was also fantastic with the risotto. Service was friendly and attentive - not pushy.
I highly recommend trying it out if you have not already!

The food and service were wonderful. It was a very nice way to celebrate an anniversary. We especially liked the chilled peach soup. The only negative was that we had made a reservation a few days beforehand and when we got to the restaurant they had no record of it. But because it was a Sunday night we were able to be seated.
