Ojai Valley Inn & Spa renovated, opens new dining venues

Ojai Valley Inn & Spa in Southern California opened a new restaurant named Olivella and Vine, and renovated the Wallace Neff Heritage Bar. The opening of these new dining destinations mark the culmination of phase one in a series of resort-wide enhancements.

Overseeing all of the resort's dining is executive chef Truman Jones.

The 240-seat Olivella and Vine restaurant is divided into a variety of large and intimate dining spaces, with art pieces and custom designed lighting throughout that creates a residential feeling. Private dining rooms have hand-carved White Russian Oak farm doors, high ceilings, large windows and a fireplace. A wine library surrounds the private wine room, with a collection of bottles from boutique vineyards all over the world. The private wine room's communal dining table seats 14 and is lit by a chandelier of steel and glass accompanied by artwork and coffered ceilings. Dual patios for al fresco dining offer views of Ojai's "Pink Moment" sunsets.
