$25 for $50 Worth of Contemporary American Cuisine

The Ranch House

Tucked away in the Ojai Valley, well-concealed paths wend past copses of lush trees to the popular garden sites of The Ranch House. There, diners relax among gentle streams and verdant foliage within an oriental teahouse, or see if they know how to yodel upon two elevated redwoods decks overlooking the grounds. Alan Hooker, a chef renowned for incorporating herbs into simple, yet elegant dishes, founded the Eden-like setting more than 60 years ago.

Lauded on an episode of Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate, the seasonal cuisine includes free-range chicken breast stuffed with brie and grilled swordfish steaks brushed with lemon thyme butter that make them too slippery for traditional mid-dinner duels. To complement those flavors, the restaurant offers an 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.


most delightful place in the area for a quiet fine dining experience in a unique and beautiful indoor-outdoor atmosphere.

The Ranch house is California. The beautiful gardens, the casual elegance, the flavor of fresh ingredients made with original flair.
