Four of us had dinner here the first night staying at the resort. We got to sit outside and had heaters above us. Ordered. Wedge salad as a starter and it was huge, then salmon for dinner. Perfectly prepared, others had the scallops and shrimp linguine. All the food is really good, expensive but that is to be expected from... More

The food is good but it seems like the menu could be upgraded to reflect the spa environment and a more 'Ojai' attitude. For example, it would be nice to see more organic salads and plant-based options in addition to the one or two that they have or maybe offer an alternative healthy menu. There is a room towards the... More

We live in Carpinteria but had never been here. It's pricey, but the atmosphere was great on the outdoor plaza, there was live music, service was excellent - waiter called us by name. There were gnats/fleas getting into things (my beer) but it wasn't enough to ruin the experience. Beautiful grounds, it's a nice stroll to the Oak Grill from... More

The Ojai Valley Inn and Spa has undergone a significant renovation, and the venerable Oak restaurant is a polished gem. It starts with the magnificent setting of an open air covered patio with superb views of the golf course and valley mountains, set under a huge oak tree. The food was outstanding. California burrata and local olive oil for two... More

We had a very good breakfast here while staying at the Inn. The eggs and bacon were as ordered and hot, Bacon was extra crispy which was what I wanted. The tost was also good. However, the coffee service should be much quicker ,especially at breakfast where I need it as soon as possible; Way too slow and also slow... More
