Mix 10 delightful ladies, excellent champagne and food and you have a wonderful wedding shower luncheon. Most people took the suggestion of the Smoked Chicken Salad and were very pleased with the choice. We were there over the New Years weekend and were in a holiday mood. Suzanne's was a perfect choice and our service was exceptional.

I had read reviews and planned to stop at Suzanne's for lunch, but had not made a reservation. Luckily we got there early enough and were given a table, but apparently, people in the know make reservations even for lunch and the place was soon full! However, I like how the tables (we were on the stone-floored patio) were nicely... More

Excellent Service, good food, great atmosphere. Lots of specials to choose from but always return for the Smoked Chicken Salad with Pine Nuts, perfect! Always a pleasure.

The quasi-outdoor dining room is completely cozy and comfortable, featuring a fireplace and an elegant onsen-like garden. The room has great acoustics as well. The food is superb. Great classic standards, such as escargot and bouillabaisse, sit atop the menu beside unusual, locally-sourced specials. The spaghetti squash replacement for any pasta was a fabulous feature. The local Chanterelle mushrooms were... More

We just arrived in Ojai, and stopped at this restaurant for lunch. We walked in, saw that there were table inside and out and asked for a table outside (surprisingly, there was heat on the enclosed patio but none inside the restaurant). Instead of saying something nice, like "sorry, all of those tables are reserved" we were abruptly scolded. The... More

Beautiful setting. Great wine list. Impeccable service. Let me not forget the food itself. From soup to nuts very tasty. Even the coffee is good. Save up and go for that special occasion.

I passed a woman waking the local trail and asked for the best food in town. She recommended Suzanne's and it did not disappoint. Cannot wait to come back!

A favorite with locals and visitors, perfect for celebrations, romantic dinners and family gatherings. The service is professional and warm, the food varied and appealing. Good for lunch as well as dinner so there is a reason it's always packed. I've been here often over the last 15 years.

Thank Cindy B
