We love to sit outside on the front patio of Azu and enjoy at date night dinner. They have a surprisingly delicious chicken soup (it has the perfect hint of lemon) and fun tapas.

We LOVE the Farmer’s Market Eggs Benedict. I had a poached egg with lemon hollandaise atop a grated veggie patty which come with a size salad. The coffee is perfect and freshly brewed. The only complaint- the veggie patty was COLD this time.

This looked a terrific restaurant, located at the back of a great bar that served some terrific locally brewed beers. We all really enjoyed our meals but there was something lacking in the atmosphere department which would not make us rush back.

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. We strive to provide the tastiest and freshest ingredients while preparing our dishes with the pure natural flavor of farm driven produce and flavors. We offer organic, vegan, Paleo, gluten free, vegetarian, and other dietary restricted options as well as healthy nutritional options for kids. Our dishes are designed to meet the needs of Everyone who walks through our historic doors. We cater to couples nights out, large parties and receptions, wedding events, Happy Hour connoisseurs, anniversary celebrations, outdoor dining, Tapas tastings, wine tastings, beer samplings, corporate events, and have a wide variety of Tapas and Celebration menus to choose from.
