Our server was exemplary, as was the manager and support staff. This was our second visit there within one month. It is apparent that customer service from a friendly and welcoming staff is the signature statement of the Oak Restaurant and entire staff at the Ojai Valley Inn.
We were a bit disappointed with our service at Oak. The food was good but it’s pricey. Overall, the ambiance was the best part of the dinner.
Love the ambiance of The Oak out among the giant oak trees. The food is always amazing....the scallops are always my favorite and never disappoint.
I have been in that restaurant many times, they used to have a better choice of food for lunch and better taste.
I love the patio
Had a wonderful dining experience. Great staff, beautiful atmosphere. Lunch menu was able to accommodate my vegetarian diet. Looking forward to going back soon
Amazing! Felt safe dining there during the pandemic!
Great food and service in a pretty location, and nice that we could bring our pup. However it was very busy with large parties, and children running around, which was especially surprising during COVID restrictions.
One of the most beautiful settings for a meal you will find anywhere.
Celebrated birthday. Excellent service and food, beautiful outdoor setting.
A fabulous new find for us, we will definitely be back!
We had a lovely dinner! Great food and service!
We have been there many times and will keep coming!
The waitress didn’t give us any time. In fact we got ignored the whole night. Even at the end when we asked for the check she didn’t reply, until we finally got up and waited for our check by the hostess’ counter. Great atmosphere and will be back but hopefully not in her section.
Wonderful dinner. The service and ambiance were spectacular!
Perfect, plates were a little small but that's expected from a nice establishment like the Inn. Overall gorgeous atmosphere and top level service.
Great for a special occasion! The service was amazing, having drinks inside before being seated added to the evening. The food was good, perhaps not quite as good as previous visits and a menu change to remove the brussel sprouts was irritating.
Great resort. Any occasion. I recommend outside seating by the oak. Inside is very basic. Food is fantastic!
50th bday our with gf’s
Gardner’s were cuttings brushes or trees and the Noise was disturbing but service and food was good
Great place with great service. Food was amazing! :)
One of the best restaurants you can eat at with a beautiful patio.
Victor was a great server. Very courteous and made good food recommendations. Great ambience with the live music on Saturday.
Once again incredible food and great service in a pretty setting.
We had a wonderful experience for our 5 year anniversary!! Jennifer was our server and she was excellent and made us feel so special. Everyone from the hostess to the waiter assistants were awesome. The food was amazing. The ambiance was perfect. We will definitely be back!!
Very big portions but a nice menu selection and friendly service although not super efficient
Wonderful service, fabulous food.
Food and service was excellent! Wanted to sit outside but patio unfortunately was under construction. Next time!
We came here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner during our stay at the Ojai Valley Inn and absolutely loved it. Our favorite meal was dinner; although the ambiance is less luxurious and more casual than Olivella, the menu options and food were phenomenal. We wish we ate here for dinner both nights during our stay!
Next time give me credit with Opentable when I show up for my reservation.
If you order the a lobster fra diavolo... don’t expect it to contain more than a bite of lobster. Such a disappointment for the price!
Great Service, Good Food but ambience was tremendously lacking. Outdoor seating was nice for brunch but too cold for dinner.
We had a very pleasant experience both times at the Oak.
We ate outside on the patio on a cool evening. The heaters worked well and were not too hot or cold. The lighting was inadequate. Our server was very pleasant if a little too talkative. But, we liked her.
The OVI is expensive, but it is a great property and a great addition to the little town of Ojai where I live.
Phenomenal. Gorgeous. Incredible food. Lori our waitress was excellent.
Had a beautiful birthday dinner with someone special.
The meal was amazing from beginning to end. Chef Rafael’s menu is delicious and the service was perfect!!
The buffet was amazing. Also Fernando was so kind, attentive and focused on providing us with a unique experience. This was nothing short of an amazing experience for my Mom & I.
This was the best meal that we have ever had at The Oak. The new menu has very diverse options. The lobster fra diavolo was delicious. The steaks were very good, as was the lobster mac and cheese.
We came here for our anniversary dinner and our server, David, was wonderful! We loved the food, service, ambiance, and hospitality we experienced there. Thank you!
We had the Cobb salad and the mushroom flatbread and I was in heaven. We sat outside overlooking the golf course and it couldn't have been nicer.
