Monte Grappa is always packed and for good reason. It's service is friendly and efficient, the choices varied and reasonable, the wine choices small but solid. The locals pack in during the week with the tourists and a few locals on weekends. I love the small bar there too--always friendly and attentive service.

This was a great surprise: to find such a good restaurant in Ojai. It'll be worth going back for. I live in Santa Barbara and it's nice to have a reason for a bike ride. I had a salad with the "catch of the day" which -- as the waitress warned me -- was already flaked and mixed together with... More

While visiting Ojai, stopped in here for dinner. Restaurant is on main road in town and plenty of parking along street or behind in the parking lot. Walking into the restaurant has a good feel to it. Did not have reservation, but were seated quickly - wait staff friendly. We got started with some wine and looked over the menu... More

The patio is a great place to eat and enjoy the view. Waiters and chef will make sure you get what you ordered even special requests.

Stopped in alone and had to wait for a place to eat at the bar. Very lively, energetic atmosphere. I only had a kale salad, but it was tasty and fresh and big enough for dinner. Would come back in a heartbeat.

Happy time in the flash floods of today. The meandering drive through luscious green valleys was particularly pleasant.
