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.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDrA table for 4 on the rear patio overlooking the flower garden made for a pleasurable experience4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMyumeverything was great! service was amazing...setting beautiful and quiet...food was delicious!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food lovely settinggreat food lovely setting and good service thanks alot4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGlorious Garden, French CuisineExcellent.

Every course was delightful and the service was excellent. The view of the garden was also quite enjoyable. Excellent restaurant!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHighest recommendation forHighest 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.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a favorite dining locationAlways 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.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSuzanne's has the most extensiveSuzanne's has the most extensive menu in the valley, full of creative gourmet fare. Service is friendly an professional. I love coming here.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second time drawingThis 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!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dinner could not haveOur dinner could not have been better. The food, wine, and service were great. I had the peppercorn fillet with grilled onions and mushrooms. Really good. Most places go crazy with the peppercorn and overwhelm the meat, not here. My wife had a shrimp dinner. Same thing...seasoning did not overwhelm the shrimp flavor and was fantastic. We will return next time we're in Ojai.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is our place.We had my Wife's Birthday dinner here on a Saturday night. The service was great and the food was delicious. We brought our own wine and was charged a $20.00 corkage fee, even with that we still made out on the wine. I would say that Suzanne's is a little pricy, but you do get good food made FRESH with very good service. So for a party of four that brought their own wine it ended up to be $145.00 a couple. We may not be back every Saturday night but we will be back for sure.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my favorite restaurantThis is my favorite restaurant in Ojai. Food is exceedingly fresh and well expedited. The wine list is quite good too. Servers are helpful, friendly and enjoy speaking about the menu and specials.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHad two dishes which wereHad two dishes which were very tasty but the sauces that were a large part of the flavor were skimpy on both.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the DriveDiscovered Suzanne's by accident over a year ago on a road trip. We had such an amazing lunch we had to go back some weeks later and try dinner. It is a two-hour drive one way from our home, but we now make the trip expressly to eat there about once every two or three months. Have never had the same thing twice, except the Pineapple Gratinee. Close your eyes and pick anything, you won't be disappointed -- everything has been awesome. The staff is warm and attentive. Reservations advised if you come half an hour or more after opening.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen I told several friendsWhen I told several friends I was going to Ojai, they said you have to eat at Suzanne's. The food and ambiance exceeded my expectations. I am looking forward to eating there again.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMIdyllic setting in an idyllic valleWe had lunch in the back patio by fountain. It was an absolutely gorgeous setting, & we were visited by a local scrub jay -- more interested in the fountain than us. I loved the duck confit salad that we split. We also split the roast beef sandwich, and while it was quite tasty, the wasabi wasn't spread as evenly as it could have been. Some bites had none; others were eye-wateringly HOT. Minor quibble. The roasted red potato side was excellent I normally don't drink alcohol at lunch, but we happened to be there during the Pixie orange harvest (90% of all pixies are grown in Ojai). The special cocktail was a Pixie Cosmopolitan which was AWESOME. We were pleasantly full, so we didn't try the desserts, although they sounded good.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSuzanne's was an amazing experienceSuzanne's was an amazing experience. I ordered the eggplant tart with a butter lettuce salad and my dining companions ordered penne pasta with a caesar salad and sand dabs. We all raved about our food and agreed that it was the highlight of our trip. There are so many wonderful choices that the only difficulty was on deciding what to order as it all sounded so delicious. We absolutely loved dining there and cannot wait to go back!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I have eaten atMy wife and I have eaten at Suzannes several times and have always had a great experience. The food is terrific and the ambiance is super. It's great for a couple celebrating a special occasion or just having a nice night out. It's not particularly kid friendly. Best for adults.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to Suzanne'sWe have been to Suzanne's several times and always enjoy our visit. The steak sandwich is great! So are the various salads.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Excellent DinnerThis was my first visit to Suzanne's. Everything was ready when I arrived and the menu was full of choices. I had a seat with a view of the garden and it was a cold night but the space heaters solved that issue nicely.
The meal was fantastic... everything was well prepared. I had steak so I had originally said "well done" but realized that I eat my steak "medium" so I changed that above. The desert was also excellent - a fruit tart with cherries. Not too heavy and very tasty!.
Excellent restaurant!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it so much we went backLoved it so much we went back the next day for lunch again before leaving town.2/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely spot, consistently goodI have eaten here twice and enjoyed it very much each time. The service is always impeccable and the choices original and fresh.12/9/2012 12:00:00 AM
