We ate here for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the food did not disappoint! Our favorite was the breakfast menu with all types of farm to table options and amazing pancakes. No complaints at all on the dinner or lunch either. Great for casual dining.

The restaurant is way up the hill with no dry route. When we parked with the valet they sent us "just up the stairs" in a driving rain. They have carts all over, guess this guy didn,t see a tip possibility. Don'tknow if the huevos rancheros were the best ever, we,re from texas and eat lots of hr. But certainly... More

The food and atmosphere speaks for itself but couple that with great food and wine and The Oak is a winner! We went there on a chilly night and the staff accommodated us by bringing over heat lamps and blankets. Every staff member showed attention and care in their service. It is not as "fancy" as the Olivella but still... More

The brunch was good - good traditional brunch food with the addition of large shrimp. We enjoyed the bottomless champagne and the music was really nice. Our group very much enjoyed this! We also visited the Oak for dinner. We ate outside and enjoyed the lanterns on the trees.

Recently spent the evening celebrating a friends birthday at The Oak. Our servers were over the top in their dedication to seeing that everything we needed was to our satisfaction.

We had a group of 8 and the service was 5 star. Food was very good. We all had something different and it was hard to get people to share. One guest had food allergies and the waitress was very helpful and accommodating. You can dine in or outside. Great views of the golf course and grounds. We plan to... More

The service was the best. I took home a pub burger and it was great. They also have great pizzas. Big screen TV's, too.

I always think to go to Olivella as I have not been there yet when I spend a day at the Spa. But so far except once at the Spa Café I end up here after a bit in Sun after my late morning Spa treatments. The Club and the Cobb are excellent and the white wine after a tranquil... More

We've stayed multiple times at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. Their anchor restaurant is The Oak. They have both indoor and outdoor seating. Limited but solid menu with local ingredients. Sunday offers a weekend extended boozy bunch. Tip: try to ask for table in corner front so you can enjoy the view of their large peak tree decorated with... More

Both the terrace and the inside of the restaurant have been redone and for the better. The decor is lighter and more relaxed. It now feels cheerful to be inside rather than oppressive. While the menu is largely similar, the quality of the food has gotten better this year. The breakfast buffet and also the individually ordered items were great.... More
