The restaurant is in a hotel which was not immediately obvious from the online description. The food was uninspiring and overly salty. The staffing was minimal and our waiter did the best he could considering he appeared to be waiting on every table by himself.

We had been on our feet all day, and this was very convenient and relaxing.

The food was terrible. I could make better food on my own. The service was not attentive and dull, as if he didn't even want to be there. I was checking this place out to invite clients for brunch or breakfast but after tonight I wouldn't even order a drink there. Burger was clearly burnt and we still got charged for it. I'm sad to say this restaurant needs massive improvement in both service and food.

We pride ourselves on southern hospitality and delicious food and it seems we fell short this time around. Please contact me, I would like to fix things, if possible? My name is Erica and I’m one of the F&B managers . Please send me an email erica@thewhitehallhouston or call at 713-739-8800 when you have a free moment. Sincerely, Erica Storch F&B Team

Food was decent. Good portions but blackened fish wasn't blackened, other plates looked good. Service was painfully slow, took an hour to get main courses and had to ask for water multiple times to get it. Did not get asked if wanted dessert or anything else before check was brought. There's definitely better food and service in downtown Houston.

This tucked away gem is quite nice. My Ribeye was delicious, $14 Margarita felt a bit steep but overall very nice meal.

One of the worst meals I have had for the price. The porkchops were dry, overcooked and the side dishes I received on my plate was not the same on the menu. Very disappointing and not worth the price! I wonder if the chef even checked or tried his/her own dishes. They would be disappointed too! Will never recommend.

I work next to the Hotel that this r is adjacent to so this was the first time I was there since the remodel and new ownership/name change etc. The menu for lunch was bit confusing that was the first thing i noticed . I had the house burger , this was topped with a piece of deep fried cheese which was interesting concept but ruined my burger as it became so greasy I had to take it apart to eat it and the bun was drenched in grease. The others in my part were not commenting much but I never heard anyone say that it was good or bad. This is a choice for convenience. Basically a typical hotel eatery that is moderate/overpriced. i will give them the benefit of the doubt and try this one more time when I am in a smaller group. Warning this was a office group and they would not break the check so we all had to divide the check for the group. Sad in the age of computers.

I'm glad I did not know it was in a Hotel because I probably wouldn't have gone. Hotels usually have frozen food. I'm glad we went. Will definitely go back.

I desperately wanted to like this restaurant. The food was superb. Delicious and beautifully displayed. The service was abysmal. We ordered a salad that never came - at least we didn't pay for it. Apparently, our server never put the order in. Then it took 50 minutes for our food to come out. I could forgive them for that had we not been only one of three parties in the entire restaurant. It's also not an easy location to find. I won't be surprised if this restaurant is one of many in the Houston area that is forced to shutter its doors. Too bad, because the food is really good.
