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

Service was excellent in this nice environment establishment. The word "cuisine" implies finesse. It doesn't mean a plate of liver hidden by mountains of sliced peppers. It doesn't mean a dish piled high with spaghetti and clams - enough for at least two customers. So....nice place to go....yes. But "fine" or "cuisine"... Forget it. Since when are high prices justified... More

We were spending a few days in Ojai celebrating my birthday, and based on recommendations, I chose Suzanne's for my birthday dinner. I sure was not disappointed! We did move the dinner up a night to be able to dine on the patio and it was a good call. The back patio area has been transformed into a magical garden... More

We went to Suzanne's as it was the highest rated restaurant in Ojai. The room is very pretty; we were seated in front of the fireplace. The menu has a lot of "old reliables"; but nothing very exciting or different. The food was well-executed, but nothing that would make us feel compelled to go back.

Get a table on the terrace for a nice, romantic dinner. Service was excellent and the food was top notch. Definitely would recommend Suzanne's Cuisine.

It really is lovely to dine on the terrace, so the atmosphere is pleasant. Service is also very good. The problem is the food, which arrived at our table within five minutes of the waitress' taking the order. I am sure that it was all made in advance. The poached salmon was surrounded by dry looking sliced tomatoes and limp... More

We enjoyed a wonderful evening at Suzanne's Cuisine - the staff was so welcoming, the service was attentive without being intrusive, the food was absolutely delicious and the restaurant was beautiful. Be sure to request a table on the patio - so pretty. Everything we had for dinner was fabulous, but the grilled salmon and chocolate cake were particularly outstanding.... More
