My son and I had the best dinner ever!! Our waitress Christina was amazing. All the employees were a 10!!! I cannot remember her name but there was a lady with blonde hair in a ponytail and she was great as well. They made us feel like family. We go there quite often for breakfast on Saturdays and Sunday’s and the food is always perfection. I will definitely recommend this to everyone including all my customers at the bank. Thank you all for giving us a great, fun time. 👍👍👍

Ordered my meat very rare and it came medium.
Waitress knew one of our party and had 2 long conversations with her when we were dining.

Our Favorite restaurant in Ventura County. We take all out of town visitors for breakfast, lunch, or dinner depending on occasion. Have never had a bad experience with the staff or food quality. Great selection of dishes and price points, too.

We have always loved this hidden gemstone of a good place to eat. You can count
on your steak to be good quality and cooked to perfection. Love love love the scalloped
potatoes, all else is fresh.

The service with Liz is always excellent. I always try a different main dish and am never disappointed . The abalone appetizer is always a must. Hozy's is one of my favorite restaurants.

We have been regular patrons of Hozys for years and just over the last year to year and a half the time to get served has become way too long. Our appetizers came out fairly quickly but our entree took a very long time. We will continue to join you and your wonderful staff in the future. Thank you Larry Schuss

We were not impressed with our appetizers, the crab was mushy and the abalone just tasted awful. I thoroughly enjoyed my entree though. I had the Sea Bass and it was cooked to perfection. My husband was not happy with the cowboy steak, it was overcooked and lacked flavor. The wait staff was on point and we did enjoy our evening. We will go back and give it another try.

The food and service were excellent. I had requested a booth but was told there was no record. There was a drunk at the bar that was extremely loud and offensive. He stopped my husband when he was returning from the restroom and became very aggressive. The alcohol should have been turned off in order to avoid the incident.

This is a very good restaurant that pays attention to the quality of the food they are serving. The restaurant is not very big, but it was packed the entire time we were there which is a testament to the popularity of this local restaurant. The menu has a great range of offerings in the food we ordered came out hot, promptly and good quantity without sacrificing quality. Surprisingly excellent wine left and a nice assortment by the glass. I can tell that the owner of this restaurant is a very good cook and enjoys his job!

A great off-the-beaten-track spot hidden away in a Santa Paula industrial park. Food was delish and servers were great. We’ll be back.

We love Hozy’s but it was a special occasion ( Jacks 86th birthday) and I had requested a booth.
We got a table out in the middle and it was noisy.
The food was wonderful as always and the drinks were excellent.
Service was fair. We seemed to have about 3 different people waiting on us.
We will always recommend Hozy’s and we will go back.

I was looking forward to trout or sea bass that were on your website that day. When we got to Hozy’s these items were not on the menu so I was disappointed and had to choose something else, which was very good but my disappointment remained. You should keep your website up to date or remove the menu options.

An unlikely fine dining spot in Santa Paula. Comfort food, strong on meats, large portions, good flavors. Service and setting are casual, but good.

Great Martinis accompanied Shahito peppers and
Hamachi, followed by perfectly cooked Prime Rib. The wine list is varied and extensive for every budget. A little noisy, but the food is delicious.

Recommended by a friend of a friend, so we decided to try it for our "date night". OMGosh- Excellent food, wonderful staff and pleasant atmosphere. We had a great time talking with other "regular" patrons about the history of the restaurant, the area and the various food selections offered. We WILL be back and look forward to becoming a "regular"! I can't wait to try the Fried Chicken this next time!!

Food was nice and in generous portion. However, we have to wait for over 30 mins for our table, WITH reservation. Nobody even bother to follow up with us on the wait. Almost lost our table to a couple without reservation, have I not reminded the server we have been waiting for our table. Service was slow but servers are polite and friendly.
