Great meal towards the end they were redoing the carpet upstairs and it got quite loud
The food was good but the service wasn't too great. Unfortunately we didn't get dessert because they forgot about us. After waiting for over 20 minutes we just asked for our check.
very happy I was able to go and enjoy this local historic restaurant. so sad it's gone.
We always enjoy both lunches, dinners and special occasions at the White house.. Their service and meals are always memorable and special..
More then just a fantastic dining experience this is an institution of charitable works too. Very impressed with all the awards.
Food doesn't make sense and wasn't fresh and the steak seemed like it was cooked frozen.
They tried to group Asian customer to one corner whether that was intentionally done or not. First, it is not authentic Italian. I would say Californian or designed to attract travelers. If you are a true foodie, not the place to go.
Food and staff were fabulous, so accommodating of all our needs!
Extremely bad service..do not come here. Rude hostesses and waiters. Save yourself.
First time here and was not disappointed...have heard this placed talked about many times, so in giving it a try I found it to be be excellent high end eating. Service was spot on, food was delicious, and it was nice to be able to hold a quiet conversation with my wife at the table. Is it overpriced.. sure, but it is a nice special occasions experience.
The food was just okay, nothing special, and not worth the price. We had shrimp cocktails and the shrimp was small and tasted defrosted, nothing special. My husband had the prime rib and, again, it was fine, nothing great. I had the shrimp scampi and was very disappointed. It was lacking any true flavor, and once again, the shrimp were subpar. The restaurant is an older house converted. We ate in an upstairs room, the decor was old, but not in a good way. The whole place needed new paint and carpeting and the wallpaper decor was hideous. The service was great.
Fab atmosphere. "Pretty Food" Great presentation.
Our dinner was the highlight of our trip. After days of eating Disney fast food this was the perfect treat. The pasta was amazing but the real wow was the presentation on the meat dishes and dessert. We ordered the soufflé which was terrific, and we also order the Jackie O dessert selection and the whole table was blown away. We can't wait to come back.
Always a great meal at the White House. Love the Branzino! Delicious dishes with beautiful presentations.
Awesome historic restaurant. Was a perfect setting for birthday of a friend.
I had expected dinner at the Anaheim White House to be a truly exceptional dining experience. Perhaps my expectations were too high since what we actually experienced was a good meal at a "fine dining" price . The pasta e fagioli soup and the salmon chocolate were both good but not exceptional. The service was friendly and prompt. The ambiance is interesting but the decor is beginning to show some signs of aging. The Anaheim White House remains a high quality restaurant but it is no longer a "destination" restaurant.
This is our second time and we loved it as much as the first! We had plenty of time prior to catching a concert and we enjoyed a leisurely meal ordering one item at a time. The wait staff was professional and friendly. The food is authentically Italian and presentation is authentically gourmet. They have lots of little side rooms that allow for intimate gatherings of large groups. Decor is elegant and gold. Can't wait to return.
Overall is magical. Food was great and ambiance is perfect. Reminds me of the my grand European escapade and the love for Italian cuisine😃
The service here was amazing. From the moment you walk into the restaurant you feel very special and they aim to please. It was also great to meet Chef Bruno Serato as he made rounds and personally greeted us. The food was delicious and the setting was perfect. We enjoyed having a date night here and hope to come again
This place is the GO TO spot for a romantic dinner for an amazing cause. Food is outstanding and service was great. This is a hidden treasure
This place is great fun! The White House Restaurant is in lovely a refurbished home, built in 1909, in the middle of not-so-lovely Anaheim, and run by Chef Bruno Serato. I have long wanted to try the restaurant because I'd heard of its wonderful charitable entity, Caterina's Club, that feeds local motel kids and provides financial support and work training to many in the community. My husband and I met another couple there for dinner and we were seated promptly and greeted warmly by Chef Bruno. Service was outstanding and the restaurant was beautifully decorated for the holidays. The food was good, though the presentation had a few odd features: my whitefish Florentine was delicious, but it had a side dish of rice in a green sauce, and served in a half a coconut shell. Our appetizer of tasty artichoke hearts was served under an edible pastry shell dyed red and shaped a bit like a catcher's mask. We all cleaned our plates and had a wonderful evening. If I had one piece of advice for Chef Bruno, it would be to limit the presentation flourishes and stick to creating wonderful meals. The menu is great and it stands on its own merits. We will definitely be back!
The food is really really good. The soufflé was awesome.
Went for a pre-Christmas dinner. Outstanding food, drinks and service!
Love White House!!! Another great experience all round.
This was our second visit to the White House, the first being a visit for a tasting menu with a local foodie group. However, this was a birthday meal, which turned out extraordinary. We started off with salads served in rice paper bowls. Next for me was the rack of venison with a red wine and currant reduction sauce, served with mashed potatoes and a side of sautéed asparagus. One of the best dishes I've ever had. My wife's herb crusted prime rib, served with a side of of sautéed spinach, looked fantastic, and she said it was. Dessert was a great creme brûlée with strawberries. Service was impeccable, with someone nearby whenever your glass neared empty or there was a plate to be cleared.
For us, The Anaheim White House is not a place for regular meals, but on a special occasion, it is nothing short of spectacular.
Restaurant very crowded but it is the holiday season. We waited way too long for our server to greet us and take our drink order. We were never offered a wine menu. Food was good but again, waited too long for after dinner coffee and refills.
We would go back again but if service remains the same after holiday season, then they have a problem.
The food is mediocre. This restaurant touts itself as fine dining, but I think it falls short of such. The food doesn't taste fresh and doesn't taste freshly prepared. I ordered a dish that included a lobster tail and beef short rib; and my entire dish was cold. I received a new plate that was warm but not hot. The food itself was bland tasting and didn't offer much flavor. I was expecting to be wowed by my meal and I wasn't. ..at all.
Great place for a romantic dinner. Food great service great atmosphere great. You have to go!!
This place is pretty interesting, I would say just different. I liked pretty much everything, but smell of old house in the dining area was not that pleasant. We have met the Chef, that was a nice touch, loved the Caesar Salad, my pasta with seafood was just ok, my friend pasta with grounded beef seemed better. At dessert wish apple tart was warm. I like décor of the house restaurant.
We had our wedding reception at the Anaheim White House 12 years ago and we go there every year on our Anniversary. We live two hours away and the drive is well worth it! The food, the service and the ambiance is amazing. We will continue to go every year on our Anniversary and, if possible, in between!
Service was excellent. They just forgot to offer us coffee with dessert, hence the four stars.
Food was average at best. Place looks a bit run-down and felt a bit musty. Silverware and glassware were dirty with harden food stains and lipstick. Service was sub-par - had to tell the wait staff to grab a wine list, fill water glasses, etc. Notified the restaurant that we were celebrating a birthday, and nothing was done or offered to us. At this price point, there are MANY restaurants that are worth the visit; this one is NOT one of them.
There was a special event out doors so parking was a problem and service was very slow. I called ahead for a birthday surprise for my sister's 50th birthday and they were so busy they forgot all about it. Disappointing. We had driven over an hour based on a recommendation.
Superior, attentive customer service. Amazing food. Supports a great cause (Catarina's Club).
A wonderful experience and exceptional food. Took my daughters and my sister here for her birthday. Beautiful presentation, tasteful exquisite dishes all surrounded by a beautiful ambiance and friendly staff. I highly recommend this gem in the middle of Anaheim.
It's the third time we go but guía time we took my parents. They loved it. It was, like before, a great experience.
We had a nice dinner. The caesar salad was nice and the NY steak was very good. The presentation is craftful and the ambiance was just right. The price is a bit on the high side.
I will come back if there in another occasion for it.
The ambiance is a little kitsch, but if you're prepared you can have fun with it. As a big group, being in our own room was cool. The food was very good, the service knowledgeable, friendly and efficient, and the sommelier was experienced and had excellent suggestions.
My self and husband were very pleased with the service! !!
