The Ranch House
John Lennon. Paul Newman. Barbra Streisand. Although it's tucked away in the Ojai Valley, The Ranch House is no stranger to notable guests. The latest arrivals are also the restaurant's new owners; Italian artist Maria Angela Perna and hotelier Steve Edelson carry on the legacy of legendary founder Alan Hooker. They brought with them Executive Chef Sean Kingsbury, who oversees a menu of farm-to-table American cuisine created without the culinary crutches of freezers, fryers, or microwave ovens.
Lauded on an episode of Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate, the seasonal cuisine changes along with the calendar; recent menus included a braised lamb shank, Pacific jumbo scallops in a limoncello burreblanc sauce, and a gourmet take on the timeless chicken cordon bleu. To complement those flavors, the restaurant offers a Wine Spectator-award-winning wine list with approximately 650 selections. After their meal, guests can tour the rest of The Ranch House grounds, working off the meal as they stroll through the herb garden and bakery.

“We went on a Thurs and were surprised at how crowded it was. I had visited the Krishnamurti Library that afternoon and seen a book telling about how Alan Hooker had started cooking for Krishnamurti's guests, hence his photo in the bar entrance area.”
“Excellent service and wonderful main course.”
