Description: For more than ninety years, Ojai Valley Inn & Spa has evolved with the times but throughout it all, The Inn has maintained a connection to its locality – especially through its food. Olivella represents the epitome of this sense of place. A restaurant in Ojai Valley with refined simplicity; showcasing the best each season has to offer, suitable for any occasion. Olivella’s valley-to-table culinary program is supported by the local Ojai valleys, ranches, orchards, farms and ocean waters. We embrace the seasonal whims of the region, focusing on the bounty of year-round produce provided by the California Central Coast. Chef Andrea Rodella is proud to present a dining experience featuring the best ingredients of California with dishes and techniques inspired by his Italian heritage.

We experience the new menu and tried the water melon salad that was inspirational and delicious
Service was good but slow (don't plan on a quick meal...but maybe that is a good thing)
All local sourced menu items including the great lamb entree
Desserts were similarly innovative - our table had a range. Felt the carrot cake was a bit dry given the menu listing that highlighted the marscapone filling
Views were beautiful if you were on the balcony and watching the sunset was a treat

Loved the food and service we received here for our 5 year anniversary dinner. Request one of the tables out on the balcony for a great view of the valley.

The dining room is quiet but the service and food excellent. My favorite thing about Maravilla is the El Jefe--a spicy tequila drink that is no longer on cocktail menu but they will still make for you. The chicken, fish and short ribs were all good. The banana pudding with ice cream was delicious.

The menu is not extensive, but the selections are well designed and beautifully presented - the beet salad was to die for!
