Recent Ojai experiences? Auberge? Other higher end?
Can use some help, hounds. How is the Auberge doing? I had great meals there 25 yrs ago, and it still holds a nice spot somewhere deep in my grey matter. The terrace was fantastic.
Any other great higher end, with striking ambience?
BTW - the more casual spots for lunch like the Tamale place and the Health Food place with a prepared food counter sound great - I'm looking forward to hitting both.
Stay away from The Ranch House, close by in Meiner's Oaks - so pretty to look at, but lousy and overpriced for food. Maybe for a brunch, if one must.
Auberge changed hands and lost the French Country vibe you remember. The Ranch House is very pleasant, though. I live in Ojai and write about the food from time to time. Another good bet for dinner is Feast Bistro. Rainbow Bridge has great sandwiches. Check here for other "local" suggestions:
