california cuisine, fresh beer,

local wine & craft cocktails

We at Azu Restaurant & Ojai Valley Brewery believe the best dishes & beer 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. We feature our sister company Ojai Valley Brewery on tap and over 20 local and International wine's by the glass including wines from The Ojai Alisal Vineyard.

Over sixteen years ago, Laurel Moore opened the doors of Azu, Ojai’s original California Tapas bar, restaurant, and event venue. Moore’s vision translates the best cuisine of the Mediterranean into an exclusive, Ojai-sourced menu. She lovingly restored downtown Ojai’s Bill Baker’s 1910 building, and in turn created Ojai’s eponymous gathering place for community, curious foodies and wine lovers. Her daughter, Elizabeth Haffner came on as general manager in 2006 and together they have built a warm, creative environment filled with inventive dishes and a family-like atmosphere where locals catch up at the end of the week, and visitors to Ojai find an easy mix of casual sophistication, flavors of local soil, and the valley’s most extensive wine list.

Executive Chef and Owner Laurel Moore strive's to provide the tastiest and freshest ingredients while preparing her dishes with the pure natural flavor of local farm driven produce and flavors of Spain, the Mediterranean and North Africa. We offer Organic, Vegan, Gluten Free, Vegetarian as well as healthy nutritional options for kids. We cater to couples nights out, breakfast, lunch, large parties, wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, wedding brunch, happy hour connoisseurs, anniversary celebrations, outdoor dining, tapas tastings, wine & beer flights.

Whether you are looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city or are an Ojai local in need of a special night out, our destination style atmosphere and farm fresh California Tapas, fresh juice cocktails, and local wine and beer, is the perfect place to find sanctuary within a culinary inspired establishment.
