It was rated #1 on TripAdvisor, so we decided to try it out. Didn't disappoint! Everything was delicious. It wasn't overpriced though it is on a pricey side. Recommend for special occassion/celebration.

Suzanne's Cuizine is impressive. Your experience begins From the moment you walk in And are greeted by every staff member. They treat you like a family member.

We've eaten here half a dozen times over a decade. Seems to have deteriorated with time. Slapdash plating and ambitious menu means nothing is phenomenal. Few dining options in Ojai I suspect is why it continues to be popular.
Service was pleasant but eager to "sell" more items to increase final bill (and associated tip).
Suzanne's needs a reboot.

The best in Ojai. Delicious food. Great service. Lovely ambiance. Get a table on the back patio with the garden view.

Best memory of visiting Ojai. Not one false note during the dinner. Highly recommended.

My only complaint is small. The rice was over cooked on the Branzino dish; otherwise, I really appreciated the light touch allowing the ingredients to speak from themselves. We did not have wine that evening. The wine list is ample, but on the pricey side as is the case in most establishments. The dessert, pineapple gratin was flavorful and I really enjoyed the pineapple ice cream; my companion's peach crisp was very good, but in our opinion a bit too sweet. Service was great as we were attended to by the entire staff not just one server. 4.5 stars.

Ambiance and service were very good. Food just OK. Doubt if I would return.

Suzanne's is a lovely place to dine in Ojai. If ever I'm there again, I will surely dine here. Great salads and fish, and a very decent and well priced wine list.

Lunch menu has so many options from omelette to roasted chicken. The burrata and tomato special was fresh and delicious. The garden patio is beautiful and fun for an afternoon lunch. Will be back.

I would request an inside table if it's more than 80 degrees as the outdoor patio is uncomfortable otherwise. Food wasn't quite as good as past experiences but the desserts were to die for.

Excellent lunch. Lalo was our waiter and was very attentive. The food and atmosphere was perfect.

Outstanding food and service. Deco is somewhat lacking, but is easily made up by the phenomenon service. Once you find it you will undoubtedly be going back. I our opinion best restaurant in Ojai.

Our dinner was delicious looking out at a lovely garden on the patio. The menu is extensive and so many delicious selections to chose from. Our server was superb and we enjoyed a lovely evening dining at Suzanne's. It was our best dining experience in the 5 nights we were in Ojai.

We live in the Los Angeles area and make several trips per year to Ojai. Almost every visit, we stop at Suzanne's. We first tried Suzanne's based on Open Table and Yelp reviews and have had nothing but GREAT food and GREAT service every time we have eaten there. They have impeccable service and the quality and options for food have never failed us. We have taken several of our friends to Suzanne's and they all have been equally impressed. We refer everyone to Suzanne's whenever we can.
