Southern
Known by generations for her hospitality, proprietress Elouise Adams Jones, a.k.a. Ouisie, serves an eclectic collection of Southern foods with an excellent wine list to match. High ceilings and fans in the main dining room it evoke the ambiance of a Texas manor house. The adjacent dining porch overlooking the patio and garden, as well as Cooper’s Wine Bin, provide additional dining and entertaining areas. The daily fare encompasses traditional offerings like her well-loved pimento cheese, the shrimp and grits, and the popular Gulf Coast oysters to the favorite Tuesday special Ouisie’s award winning chicken fried steak with corn pudding. A fine plate of grilled Prime beef tenderloin or a brace of quail stuffed with super lump crab meat with Cognac glaze are good examples of the daily specials one might find on the blackboard.
Lunch and dinner daily, brunch on weekends.

This is one of Houstons best restaurants for food. Diverse broad menu. Only real criticism is the noise can be high at times. Great Sunday brunch too!

Great food, great service and a great time! We had a great meal at Sunday brunch and we like that it opens at 10.00 am on Sunday's.

We went for Valentine’s dinner. It was okay. Not as good as I thought it would be. The food was very sub par, not bad, just not really good. Our waiter was amazingly sweet. We adored him. The restaurant is beautiful, but the food really just wasn’t that good. There are so many great restaurants in Houston and this one just didn’t compete with other places I have been to.

Jalapeno appetizer was warm and cold in different spots. Lamb chops had a lot of fat. Probably will not come back.

Three friends celebrated our February birthdays on Saturday. Food and service were excellent. We topped off the meal by sharing a piece of tres leches cake and lemon ice box pie. Delicious!

Had to send the lamb chops back, and they were great upon return. Rizzoto was watery. Sea bass was good. Will try it again on a regular night.

Pretty underwhelmed with the food. Went for Valentine's. Disappointed that after making reservations 3-4 weeks in advance and was seated at a mini-table. I opened the menu and it was bigger than the table. I get trying to maximize space but immediately turned me off to the whole restaurant. Plus due to Valentine's, there was a set menu. Again, understable but nothing unique about the selection. It was our first Valentine's as fiancees, and we wanted to celebrate. I would have been more content staying home.

Tables so close together - service poor and abrupt, food as if it had been made a day ahead, salad had 6 pieces of lettuce (4 bites), very disappointing for what was once a top notch restaurant. Perhaps just a Valentine’s night but probably won’t be back.

We really like the restaurant. We’ll be back to try it on a normal day. Valentine’s Day can be a little chaotic, so it seemed like the servers were a little stressed out. Nothing bad to say at all. Steak was cooked perfect medium rare. Lobster mashed potatoes were a little bland but good. Everything was overall really good. Drinks were awesome! Wine selection is great.

Valet had 100% of all the spaces blocked off with cones. Really not smart for those that don't want someone driving their car.

Always a lovely experience at Ouisie’s. I had the sea bass and it was incredible. Flaky and just a little crispy on the edges. The pot de creme was excellent. Service top notch. Love this place.

Service was off when I was there for breakfast. Waited about 10 minutes before I had to flag the waiter down (I joined party already seated). I wanted coffee and the table was ready to order but no waiter! The rest of the meal was off. One of my party asked for jelly for his toast and it did not come until after we were all finished.

Returning after many years it was a good reminder why I like the place on the one hand - the food, and stopped going on the other hand - the service. We had a business dinner and enjoyed taking our time to order, but when it takes three times with the wait staff to finally get things moving that is three too many for a fine dining establishment. More disappointingly than that was the over pouring of the wine in such way that the first person to get served could go for swim in the glass and the last one experienced a severe drought. Quite unprofessional. Pity because the food is good traditional southern cuisine and really well prepared. And while the food is an important part of the experience, it takes more for a truly enjoyable evening.
