Diner Reviews
  • "Lunch hour is from 2-4 versus standard restaurants from 12-2. Doesnt really benefit individulas who work in the tower and want a lunch hour menu....."

  • "The Breakfast at this place is really good. Benedict's Eggs with Salmon one of the specialties . They served Starbucks Organic Coffee with many refills, and that's an extra."

  • "Delicious ice cream, truly. Topped with brownies, peanuts, the usual good stuff. My anticipation grew as I perused the plate. However, I payed not enough attention to the placemat right in front of me, where I had just been handed a fork. Why? Why would you do this to me, White Oak?"

  • "We chose to go there because of the good reviews. We were definitely not disappointed! Staff was pleasant and service was excellent. This one of the few restaurants I've been to where I ask for a tonic water and lime and actually get one the first time around (most places send me a club soda). The pricing was moderate, a nice touch. But the food... I ordered a falafel salad, not really knowing what to expect. It was delicious. But the kicker was my wife's meal (it is rare for her to like restaurant food). She ordered wok seared marinated beef with rice and she absolutely loved it! Wouldn't share any of it with me! Will definitely go back when I am in Houston again."

  • "The food was good, but not excellent. The ambiance was loud and busy, but it is in a very busy mall, so that may be to be expected. And the service was mediocre. The surprise was the bill...for only 6 people for breakfast, the cost was $200! No alcohol or anything...and they added in the tip for a table with only six. I think I know why."

  • "We were in a smaller room which was nice but the doors were left wide open & there was ton of noise coming from a large group of about 15 - 18 people seated right outside the doors. Was hard to carry on a conversation at our table..."

  • "Is a nice informal place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner in your hotel. Westin Oaks with friendly service and good food. You have a big window so you can see people walking in the galeria."

  • "The food was very good. And the décor is beautiful. But we went on Valentine's Day and they couldn't handle the amount of customers. Slow service is a pet peeve for me. The prices weren't horrid but they were high enough that I expected better service, even on a holiday. $10 for a glass of house wine. $3.75 for a soda. $17 for a hamburger. $47 for a steak. This restaurant is in the Galleria Mall. The only way I would go again would be if I was already in the mall. I wouldn't seek the restaurant out."

  • "We had an 8:15pm reservation for 2, we were not seated until 8:50pm, after we repeatedly saw people after us being seated. Once seated the waiter offered us the vegetarian option of the menu which only included a "tofu salad". Luckily the hostess agreed to let us order from the main menu and I was able to order a couple of sides. Not sure if we caught them on an off night or what but was not impressed :("

  • "The food and service was superb at the White Oak Restaurant. However, after making a pre-registered reservation; numerous dining couples that arrived on time were kindly asked to wait at the bar for 30 min until a table becomes available."

  • "I've been here before with my mom and the brunch was to die for. Just recently went back with a friend for a valentine's day dinner and the website hadn't made it clear that the only option was their 78$ dinner for two. We were limited in our options and forced to spend more on stuff we probably wouldn't have gotten (ie. dessert, appatizer). Good food but was definitely a little peeved. I wasn't planning on spending that much and the portions weren't very big so just keep that in mind!"

  • "Its been a while since I have been treated so well in a restaurant. The food, the service , the place, the people were all outstanding. I pray that they can keep this quality of dining experience no matter how crowded or busy they get. They have certainly hired the right people to run this place."

  • "Very nice for Christmas. They had a special 3 course meal, however we ordered from the standard menu since one course is enough food for us."

  • "The place was busy, the food was good, and the service was about what i expect on Christmas Day. I am just thankful they were working."

  • "Many of the restaurants inside the Galleria benefit from their location but their food doesn't make the grade. White Oak is a great option for a good meal at a reasonable price. Their lunch menu has a variety of options so even the pickiest eater should be able to find something to satisfy. Based on our experience, I will definitely come back!"

  • "I brought a group of 15 in for my birthday. It was a last minute reservation and it was completely awesome! I knew I picked a good place when just calling to confirm my reservation the lady on the phone was so energetic and caring it really made me happy! Service was great and when there was an error with the food it was taken care of immediately and was apologized for. I worked in a restaurant for 5 years and know errors happen but the way they handled it was amazing considering many restaurants this day ignore problems. Definitely made my birthday awesome and will come back for sure!!"

  • "The calamari was cooked to perfection and the aoili was extremely complimentary. The buffalo sauce was spicy but not unbearably so. The Spanish steak was wonderful (maybe a touch more chimichurri was needed?). Roasted root veggies sublime. The s'mores bread pudding was pretty darn close to being the best I've ever had (and this Southern girl's had her fair share)."

  • "We came in from out of town at Thanksgiving with no idea where to have dinner. Lucky for us we chose White Oak! Food, service and atmosphere was excellent."

  • "The food and service were perfect. For a "mall" restaurant, they were far above my expectations in terms of both service and the quality of food."
    Dined on 10/24/2013
  • "The food was exceptionally good, decor and ambiance were terrific. My guest even commented he had no idea the restaurant existed prior to our lunch but would definitely return."
