Here again recently for dinner, another fantastic experience. EVERYTHING was thoughtfully selected prepared and presented, from the olives to the bread to the level of salt on the salad. The specials were irresistible, the service attentive, relaxed and friendly, the food superbly prepared. We tried some things we had never tried before (oaked gin, daffodil salad) and found them yummy.... More

My wife joined me in Ojai following a week of business meetings. Staying at the Ojai Resort and Spa, we walked into town and had a delightful dinner at Suzanne's Cuisine. My wife enjoyed the soft shell crab and I had a terrific grilled trout. The best of the evening was the mussels, they were excellent and with more French... More

We came here as a couple but we were travelling with a group of about 24. As it turned out, our whole group ended up choosing to come here. Even though it was a Monday night, they were able to fit all of the group in (spread across a number of tables). Everyone who ate here was really impressed. We... More

We learned of Suzanne's through Trip Advisor reviews and are so glad we did. Our table was on the edge of the garden and it was charming. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We loved the homemade gelato. What a treat. We will be back!

I was visiting a friend in Ojai and she took me here for lunch, as it is one of her favorite places to eat. The restaurant is lovely, the service is excellent and the food is absolutely delicious.

Sometimes you just happen to stumble upon a real gem -- this was certainly the case with Suzanne's Cuisine, which we recently visited. We decided to take a ride through the mountains northeast of LA (which in itself is a reason to head here) and as the sun began to set, decided to see where we might want to eat.... More

While most seem to like a garden table I prefer the front porch overlooking the mountains when the Twilight begins. The bewitching hour at Suzanne's is hard to beat. So it went for our 38th wedding anniversary dinner. Champagne, escargot, the very best homemade French bread, soft shell crabs ( yes, fresh from the Gulf of Mexico). Two healthy size... More

This is a great restaurant, food, service and ambience were excellent. The restaurant is beautiful. We sat inside, but there is seating on the front porch and the back patio. I was happy inside and would have been happy in the front or the back as well. Our table had a white tablecloth, which I love. The back patio had... More

Suzanne's is a delightful restaurant in beautiful Ojai, specializing in local organic ingredients, and made from scratch everything. The beautiful space pales next to the even more beautiful food, thoughtfully prepared and delivered by friendly, knowledgeable staff. The gazpacho special was the essence of summer tomatoes. House made sauerkraut & pickled onions sparkle on the Reuben... This is a gem... More

Wonderful Saturday night birthday dinner - every drink, appetizer, entree, and dessert was fresh and beautifully prepared. The restaurant opens up into a stunning zen garden - every table is a good spot. Service was seamless.
