Suzanne's Cuisine Restaurant Review

: Freshness counts at this mother-and-daughter restaurant in the Ojai Valley run by Suzanne Roll and Sandra Shinall. Many of the herbs used in the cooking are grown in the garden behind the restaurant. The best seats are on the patio overlooking this garden. Service is refined yet friendly, and the eclectic menu reflects California's Mediterranean climate, plus international influences. At lunch, a Niçoise salad is made with sashimi-grade ahi, green beans, new potatoes and a sesame-soy vinaigrette. A grilled beef tenderloin sandwich is topped with sautéed red peppers, onions and Danish Emmental. For dinner, a long list of appetizers and entrées is available, though the selections change seasonally. Golden trout is grilled and served simply with rosemary and lemon. Roasted quail is dressed in a sour-cherry sauce. A Prime rib-eye steak is marinated in ancho chile chimichurri and grilled to your liking. The wine list is impressive, too. But save room for desserts like flourless chocolate cake with brandied sour cherries and homemade vanilla ice cream.

Eat here if you come to Ojai

Fantastic. The food, wine & drink selection is first rate. There are two tables near the fire place. If it's a chilly night, ask for one of them. We were there on a rainy night. They have a plastic drop sheet, which fully insulated the patio section, but being near the fireplace was special. The service staff was attentive but not pushy. We were at the Ranch House last night; neither is inexpensive, but Suzanne's is much better & no more expensive. If you eat in no other place in Ojai, eat here.
