Great food & service. Everything is very tasty & clean. The fresh eggs that are sold are exceptionally good. They are laid by chickens raised by the owners children. I recommend that you buy them, if they are available. Reservations are recommended. We prefer the patio, but be aware of the weather. Ojai can be very hot in the summer... More

I love this restaurant, the ambiance is special and romantic. I can't wait to go back again. (We've been twice) On this last visit, my husband loved his salmon with cilantro pesto entree. However, the Bouillabaisse which I ordered was a tad bland for my taste.

We had no idea what to expect at Suzannes. we were told it was a pretty good restaurant in Ojai. We were in for a terrific surprise. the Salmon on Saurkrout, was the our #1 novelty fish of the year. The mussels were terrific. Even the desert, that we usually never order was terrific. This was our best meal in... More

All ten of us descended on Suzanne's for dinner in connection with a family reunion. We emerged well fed and happy. Great sand dabs. Great Scottish salmon. Great service. The ambience was delightful. The waiters didn't interrupt constantly as so many do, and the place was quiet enough to encourage good conversation. This one's a keeper.

Probably the best restaurant in town. Terrific service. It was a cold night and the usually open space was enclosed in a see through cover, but we lookedout to a beautiful garden.

Suzanne's Cuisine has a stunningly charming look and feel. Our waitress greeted us like we were friends- no formal stuffiness, but VERY professional and caring. Our food reflected a tasty and intriguing intersection of where home cooked meets fine dining. IIf you are dieting, do yourself a favor and don't look at the dessert options!

This was our second visit to Suzanne's. The ambiance is charming, however, the food is over-priced and indifferently prepared. My rib eye steak was chewy and the veggies that came with it over-cooked. My Brussels Sprouts appetizer's taste and sogginess suggested that it had been sitting under a heat lamp for too long a time. We have had the same... More

This is our favorite dining spot in Ojai. Relaxing experience, always excellent service (thank you Kari), excellent menu with perfect execution and presentation from the Chef. We love dining on the patio, it is a casual yet romantic environment - small and quaint and just perfectly relaxing. The oysters, escargot, Maytag Blue Caesar are among our favorite starters. While I... More

We had a delicious lunch at Suzanne's Cuisine and enjoyed friendly service in a pretty and comfortable atmosphere. My husband had the duck salad, which he found excellent and very filling. My main course was a modern take on salade nicoise, which was also delectable and more than ample. Somehow, we made room for dessert. My husband enjoyed his triple... More
