THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Auberge at Ojai Restaurant Review

: Because this old wooden house adjoins a stand of oak trees, you feel like you are engulfed in nature when sitting on the back porch. Get there at the right time and you’ll be able to watch the sun set behind the Topa Topa mountains as you enjoy your dinner. In the winter months, the indoor dining room with a fireplace is a bit more cozy. Christian Shaffer, a chef well known in Los Angeles (he also owns Avenue restaurant in Manhattan Beach), brings a bit of formality to Ojai’s cooking sensibilities. He draws heavily on local produce to create a seasonal New American menu of beautifully plated entrées like a lamb sirloin with grilled eggplant, zucchini and Niçoise olives, or a pork rack with apples and roasted potatoes. Savory items are stronger than the desserts, so the cheese plate with a 20-year-old port might be the best way to end your night. The wine list features Central Coast wineries (including a few from Ojai) as well as European producers.
