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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.
