This little wine bar is quite a gem!!! Really quality wine choices and such warm hospitality from Lauren and others. The decor inviting & intimate for friends with a nice bar! Even got to watch the classic movie "Sabrina" with Hepburn & Bogart while Christmas music played softly. Another "prize" on their menu is a pear&blue cheese quesadilla that is... More

When we are in the mood to eat light, socialize, or have a nice glass of wine Barrel 33 is where we end up. This place used to have live music prior to the previous owner taking over. I do miss having a cozy place in town to listen to local musicians jam or even get up and dance if... More

This little hole in the wall was one of the best surprises we had while visiting the Ojai music festival. Food was excellent, wine selection was rich, service was first rate and the price was moderate. Highly recommended for dinner or late drink. Sophisticated crowed yet very homey and warm.

We stumbled upon this little gem when our taxi didn't show up. We had the cheese plate (delicious!) and a few beers. The service was quick and the food was tasty. You could tell this is a locals spot, but it was very welcoming and comfortable.

I happened upon this small gathering place because the world series was the TV. I entered and within seconds I was treated like a regular. Meaning David the bartender was great with selecting a wine, and those also seated @ the bar were welcoming. I found this site friendly, affordable with the best local regulars that I left wanting to... More

We ate here on our second night in town. The dinner menu is very lite, meaning it was mostly appetizer-type dishes. We were going to order three, but the waitress talked us out of it since the first one (the Mediterranean plate) was big. I'm glad she did; it was a lot of food! We had the chicken quesadilla for...

$33 for a small pizza and bottle of wine was just what we wanted this night out. Best $40 dinner we had in a long time. Pizza was very thin crust cooked to perfection. Two people can finish and be happy. This was a funny evening. We walk in. No one greets us. We figured out that we were to... More

SInce it's a little off-season and it was a rainy night, we got to know the wonderful bartender, Leanna, and friendly locals who shared the history of Ojai with us!
