Does anyone have recommendations for restaurants in the vicinity of Ojai and the Ojai Valley Inn?
The Ranch House which is "funky" in a sort of hippy/60's way but with a good kitchen. Menu items are a bit dated, though, in concept. Wine list is heavy on Santa Barbara wineries and excellent. Ranch House is a favorite for weekend brunches because of its garden setting so reservations are essential.
Other favorite is Suzanne's on the main drag on the north end of town. Most ambitious and very well done. Excellect wine list here, too.
