The Ojai Valley Inn and Spa has undergone a significant renovation, and the venerable Oak restaurant is a polished gem. It starts with the magnificent setting of an open air covered patio with superb views of the golf course and valley mountains, set under a huge oak tree. The food was outstanding. California burrata and local olive oil for two... More

However, the coffee service should be much quicker ,especially at breakfast where I need it as soon as possible; Way too slow and also slow... More

I made reservations for the Oak for my wife and me to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The restaurant is primarily outdoors and overlooks these beautiful oak trees and golf greens. We went on a Saturday night, so we were entertained by live music a few yards away. The staff was incredible. From the moment we walked into the resort to the... More

The Oak seems to have died in the recent drought. It was magnificent... Food out on the terrace is really well made for all meals. And the breakfasts are notably wonderful too. It is kept nice and warm by heaters even though the temperature at breakfast time this New Years week was just about freezing outside.

Truly enjoyed our lunch. The scenery was beautiful and menu very tasty. We had the Brussels sprouts, linguine with shrimp and fish sandwich. All dishes were very delicious. Great way to spend a few hours.
