Menu

Farm Fresh Tapas, Craft Cocktails, Local Wine & Beer 

We at Azu believe the best dishes are made from fresh ingredients. We look to the local farmers that we know grow quality organic and natural produce, that help give our menu that special California twist. Our bar menu is filled with craft cocktails with juices squeezed right from Ojai’s citrus orchards where are bartenders hand pick fruit to help make the perfect mimosa, martini’s, and Richies famous Bloody Mary. We love supporting our California wineries, breweries, farmers, and hormone free companies.
We buy locally and organically whenever possible and strive to add a California twist to our Spanish inspired menu. For over 10 years, Owner and Chef Laurel Moore has taken this inspiration and has created a ambiance and menu that has the feel of a mediterranean retreat, authentic destination, and local Ojai escape.

This is our go-to place for dinner when we come to visit Ojai . The atmosphere is great and we love the sampling of flavors and foods. Our favorites are the chili rellenos, the stuffed dates, the arugula and fig salad and the roast chicken - among many other things! The wine list is great and there's always lots of activity at the bar. We enjoy that this restaurant draws a lot of locals as well as visitors. The back room and patio are great spots for a private party - we held a luncheon there about a year ago for 20 people and everyone loved it!

We are beginning to really love Ojai! Some buddies and I were in for some Mountain Biking and the hotel where we were staying told us about this restaurant and this Wine Makers Dinner. Not only was the place packed but it was sooooo good. The food was fantastic prepared by a Guest Chef I believe and the actual Wine Maker was there for us to talk with and ask questions. I have to say that my buddies and I are of Beer guys but the wine was so good and the staff was excellent! We are sure to tell our friends back home and I know our wives are going to be Jealous!

Definitely the best restaurant in Ojai (although we have so many!!) for a myriad of reasons. 1. Best bar scene (and GREAT bartenders!) 2. Best Mediterranean cuisine 3. Great vegan/gluten-free options 4. Amazing building with warmth, beautiful gardens in back. 5. I've thrown at least 10 private parties here (in the back room and garden) for my birthday, book signings, and writers' workshops and it is bar none, the best private party place in town. 6. Amazing wine list! With hard to find wines. Also have attended wedding rehearsal dinners and winemaker dinners and they were spectacular.

Azu is my favorite place to go in Ojai. The food and wine are wonderful, with exotic choices and sure-fire hits. It is a great place for both larger parties and intimate dinners, and offers an incredible atmosphere. Summer evenings sitting outside Azu can't be beat. I highly recommend it!

Our favourite place to catch a quick tapas and sit at the bar or a full romantic dinner out...always lively, friendly, and delicious! Also, the back room is great for big family occasions or work parties. And so appreciate the commitment to the Ojai community!

Azu is incredible that it offers so much local and tasty exotic cuisine! The Lamb Kabobs are some favorites, but be sure to check out the extensive Wine Menu. But of course, don't forget the deserts and "made on location" Gelato flavors!! ps. And take home some of the Local Marmalade...yahoo!!!

I have been to many restaurants in Ojai that claim to be craft & seasonal restaurants and by far Azu is at the top of my list. Weather it is the house made marmalades, infused liquors, decadent gelato. I have used Azu to help with a catering and I could not be happier with the timely response, the fair price and the over all taste and presentation. The servers know the menu inside and out, the wine list is unbelievable, small batch wineries and even small batch spirit companies as well as their own hand crafted limoncello. My top dishes are the bison blue burger, the seafood paella and for their brunch anything their chef makes with the preserved lemon hollandaise. I always seem to gravitate to the large comfortable dark wood benches that are in the front window where I can look up at the sun setting on Ojai’s Mountain range but for brunch it is a must to sit in the lovely covered garden patio. I have been a few times and noticed the patio was being used for a private party. I never knew they offered that service and it is one Ojai needs!
