This was my second time drawing
This was my second time drawing dinner at Suzanne's. It's a gorgeous setting with a breathtaking garden...I highly recommend eating on the patio (they have a fire going and heat lamps if it's cold). The food was outstanding and our waiter was very attentive and knowledgable about the menu. Will definitely go back next time I'm in ojai!

Always a favorite dining location
Always a favorite dining location after taking a scenic afternoon drive to Ojai. Since this was a cool evening, a transparent plastic curtain separated the back patio dining area from the garden, but it still provided a pleasant view of the flowers and plants. This evening we had excellently prepared escargot appetizers before our entrees of giant prawns. We accompanied our dinners with a luscious 2010 Edge Hill Chardonnay. For an enjoyable dining experience, Suzanne's Cuisine is hard to beat.

Highest recommendation for
Highest recommendation for this fine restaurant with excellent food. I liked my seafood sampler very much, and my wife loves the meatballs with pasta for dinner. I would sit in the patio with a beautiful garden view at lunch and dinner, even if it's chilly since it's heated.

This was my second visit to Suzanne's and it was excellent. Every course was delightful and the service was excellent. The view of the garden was also quite enjoyable. Excellent restaurant!

It's everything...and MORE!!!
When looking for a restaurant to enjoy during our 4-day stay in Ojai, Suzanne's consistently came up as one of the best. My girlfriend and I love to dine on quality meals. We were not disappointed here! The wait staff was kind, courteous and very helpful with explaining items on the menu. The ambiance was great and we were seated in the patio next to the warm fireplace - perfect for the mid-May evening chill. Our appetizer, salads, main course and dessert were amazing and the perfect portion. Before our dessert came out, we took the time to stroll through the garden just off the patio. We even took time to smell the rose along the way! This was, by far, the most romantic dinner we had while in Ojai. We'll be back soon! Thank you Suzanne's!

A table for 4 on the rear patio overlooking the flower garden made for a pleasurable experience

Suzanne's is special.
Suzanne's is a little out of my price range, so I don't go as often as I would like. But every time I do go everything is near perfect. The food is excellent, the presentation carefully thought out, and the service top notch. The prices are quite reasonable considering the restaurant's all around excellence.

Lovely Garden Spot in Ojai
I have been to Suzanne's twice in the last few months,The staff are friendly & warm -- very knowledgeable about the menu. I was also lucky enough both times to be there at Pixie harvest time,& Suzanne's serves a Pixie Cosmo containing the juice of an entire pixie tangerine. The best cocktail ever for lunch on a hot day! Both visits I requested a table on the patio &both times we were seated at a table nearest the gorgeous garden. I LOVED the crab salad. Just the right amount of dressing, and enough cucumber and red pepper for crunch without overwhelming the sweetness of the crab. I thought I'd have room for the chocolate/pbutter cake, but delicious as it was I had to leave a few bits. Great place for lunch!

superior in every way!
We celebrated our anniversary at Suzanne's, and it was an amazing dining experience from start to finish. Our table was on the patio facing the rose garden, the service was among the best I have ever experienced (and having been a server in years past, I am picky about that!), and the food was so fresh and truly incredible.( I even felt compelled to take a picture of the salad.) From the garden fresh vegetables to the ahi, it was all cooked to perfection. Any trip to Ojai should include an evening at Suzanne's...in fact, we may return just to go to dinner there again!

A Great Experience
Suzanne's Cuisine was an excellent choice. The food was great and so was the service. We were not rushed to finish our meal. It was a great place for a relaxing dinner in Ojai, CA.

Dinner was excellent, really well prepared, generous portions, every bite was savored. Looking forward to our second dinner at Suzanne's.

Great service, great variety of choices to eat, all well prepared. Every course of food was outstanding! Best restaurant in the LA area for foodies!

A lovely place to go for lunch
A lovely place to go for lunch or brunch. The menu is certainly large enough. The food is good, but not great. The patio is so nice though, it makes up for the lack of greatness.

Casual yet romantic
Lovely back patio setting. Delicious food. The pasta is not made on premise which was a little disappointing. My husband had the ribeye which was to die for! It was very casual but also romantic. The wait staff was very friendly.
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
They do it right here... from the super-attentive service to the high quality meals. We love Suzanne's and will be back next time we visit Ojai. Thank you for a lovely time.

We chose Suzanne's for a special celebration. We were seated immediately, the service was attentive, the food was outstanding and beautifully served, and we weren't rushed
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was out first visit, and it was a wonderful one. When in Ojai, we will make it one of our regular places

This was our first time to
This was our first time to is restaurant and we thought it was really beautiful sitting right by the garden. The food was fresh and delicious and very well displayed. My husband had the Rib eye and loved it. I had the Vegetable dish and the vegis were fresh and tasted wonderful. The only thing that was kinda bad was the service the waitress was sour and not very attentive. It didn't spoil our special dinner (my birthday) but we did notice it and commented to each other. I would recommend this restaurant and would return.

Great dining experience
My wife and I had a fabulous dinner at Suzanne's. The ambience is incredible with our table overlooking a beautiful garden. The staff was knowledgeable, attentive and friendly and the food was absolutely perfect. Suzanne's is first on my list of restaurants on my next visit to Ojai.
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of my favorites in Ojai
I've been there twice for dinner and once for lunch. Great food, great wine, nice atmosphere.

Special Occasion Outdoor Dining
Suzanne's is an upscale California cuisine restaurant with a big plus: a patio that opens onto an outdoor garden filled with beautiful flowers with great mood lighting. Excellent food, service and ambiance...and with fresh air. The night we dined was warm so no heaters were necessary - but we saw many heaters standing by for cooler weather. Wine selections were reasonably priced with a good variety. The only negative: the patio chairs have a hard metal back - next time I'll bring a pillow to lean on. Other than that one minor flaw, Suzanne's is a gem!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
A lovely find
Great waitstaff, knowledgable and have good guidance. Outdoor table overlooking the garden was wonderful! A prett scene and delicious view. Reasonably priced, especially the wines! I'll be back. It was a perfect anniversary dinner.

Suzanne's Cuisine is a perfectly
Suzanne's Cuisine is a perfectly relaxing dining location, particularly with a back patio reservation. The lush garden viewed from the covered dining area provides protection from the elements, but maintains an outdoor feel. This evening we had escargot as appetizers that were prepared better than ones we most recently had on a trip to France. For a main course we had a filet mignon with mushrooms and grilled onions that practically melted in the mouth. From the wine list we selected a Caymus Private Reserve cabernet that had a surprisingly small markup from its release price, which is quite unusual for a restaurant and a welcome find for wine lovers.

Couldn't decide what to eat
Couldn't decide what to eat because everything on the menu sounded fantastic. The butterfish was delicious and the squash blossoms fantastic can wait to go back next time we are in Ojai.

We Biked There
We biked to Suzanna's from near the coast. We arrived hungry and thirsty. An outstanding Arnold Palmer arrived at my table within moments of sitting down. Our lunch was delicious and the setting lovely. We look forward to doing this again.
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had an excellent dinner here while in town on holiday. Def. recommend, and suggest requesting a table on their covered patio with views of their remarkable garden.

Heaven in Ojai
Suzanne's is a Alice of heaven in Ojai! You dine while looking at their gorgeous little garden. In the summer they open the French doors so nothing is there to obstruct your view. It's completely shaded and comfortable. My menu favorite is the nicoise which had a light sesame dressing that is so flavorful! Really fresh and interesting menu! Great for foodies!

Great Ojai establishment
Really great place. Patio looks out on a beautiful herb garden. Food is delicious, service very nice. Will be back for sure. Highly recommended.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
A friend and I dined here recently and loved it. My first time there, though my companion had been many times. The staff was friendly and acomodating throughout, from when I called to say we were riunning late to making sure the heater was on in the outdoor patio area as the evening cooled off. The apps and main course were wonderful -- lamb chops and chicken piccata, escargots and gazpacho -- and the desserts delicious and beautifully presented. As it happened I chatted a bit with the owner who was friendly and gracious. Every detail was done well.

Nice dinner in Ojai
Visited our daughter working at camp in Ojai so we decided to take her out for a nice meal. We invited some cousins as well. So our ages ranged from 16-51. We all enjoyed the restaurant very much. Great food; lots of great selections and very fresh. The waiter was very attentive and helpful, though he didn't linger. Had some great cocktails and wine. Beautiful location in the back patio. Stayed for a long time and no one bothered us. Just a really nice night. My only slight complaint was that my cocktail wasn't amazing and was pretty small. But overall well worth the visit.

Always wonderful. Great food and service. An Ojai gem.

This was our second time here.
This was our second time here. We were seated in the very best patio table on a warm August evening. The restaurant was crowded, but we hardly noticed, as we were looking into a beautiful garden. We had the golden trout and the lamb chops -- both with spectacular presentation. The food was superb; the best lamb chops in the U.S.
We would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting or traveling through Ojai, who is looking for a special evening. A bit pricey, but worth it....probably not the best choice for families with kids.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
great Ojai place
We love this restaurant, and make it a point to dine here as often as we can. Their soups and salads to start with are excellent, and the entrees some of the best we have had anywhere. I can especially recommend the scallops in a green curry sauce and the fish, which is always fresh. My wife likes the shrimp with cheese pasta. The desserts are always light and well prepared. We had fresh figs with mascarpone cheese on our recent dinner, and it was very tasty. The service is friendly and professional. This is a restaurant not to be missed if you are in the Ojai area.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
A wonderful dinning experience! From the front patio to the back patio such a warm & inviting place. Great food selection with great special choices. Service was prompt. Would highly recommend for any dinning occasion. .

Another wonderful birthday dinner
For two years in a row I've to come to Suzanne's for my birthday. I love to sit in the patio with the lit fireplace. The food never disappoints. This year I had a salad off the specials menu with roasted figs, blue cheese, arugula and avocado, followed by the butterfish. The name says it all, silky and flaky with a tasty ponzu sauce, served with jasmine rice and perfectly crisp-tender veggies. As it was my birthday, they brought a single tall skinny candle (no singing) in my chocolate peanut butter torte...oh my god. Note to self: share the dessert next time as it's quite large and rich. My Mom ordered an incredible sour cherry crisp with vanilla ice cream. The service is friendly and prompt. If you haven't been to Suzanne's, go!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Well deserved reputation:
Always worth it. Thoughtfully prepared, local fresh produce, wonderful salads (often tastes organic quality: but not advertised as such), French/Italian dishes, nice patio/ambience. not grass fed (beef) and not wild (fish) (at least during our visits).
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic Food, Fire & Service
I'm an East Coaster & love food! On each visit to Ojai, Suzanne's is a must! I had not visited the area in 3 years and again chose Suzanne's. So glad I did, and my guest was very pleased, as well, The restaurant is a must when visiting the Ojai area! Remember though, plan your dining knowing Suzanne's is closed on Tuesdays!
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
We thoroughly enjoyed the three course tasting menu--the food and wine pairings were spot on! Great innovative dishes, fresh ingredients really made it a special place! Can't wait to be back in Santa Barbara to visit again!
