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.

Ouisie's was superb as always. The food, service, and pleasure of a respectful clientele are always appreciated. Their consistent level of excellence never fails to please. We celebrated a birthday in the best way.

Waiter was not helpful with meal choices for Gluten intolerance for my daughter plus just overall. Actually said my choice of side was not going to go well with my fish! Then the butternut squash I ordered was completely cold. As was other plates sides. After mentioning this, nothing was said.
Was told the men’s restroom had an awful smell and was not clean. Over all disappointing. Was just glad for the company I was with!

For the second time in a row we were forced to eat in the extra dining room due to a reception they had scheduled. No piano music and modest decor. This happened before so we asked during the reservation process if we could get a table in the main room and if they had their Friday night piano music. I was told yes to both requests . But just like last time we and our guests (first time diners) were greatly disappointed. We've eaten at Ouisie's numerous times over the years but I don't think my wife will go back.

I hadn't been to Ouisie's for years and was somewhat disappointed. The food was ok but not delicious (eggplant parmesan). Since a wedding was being set up outside, there were lots of people walking back & forth by our table. If the seating hostess had suggested a table further from the patio door, it would have been more enjoyable. Service was fine.

We always enjoy coming to Ouisie’s. Could have done without the piano player. His playing was subdued. But it still made the noise level higher

Ouisie’s Table has been on our must try list since we moved to the Houston area 5 years ago. Wow! So worth the weight. Place was packed for a Tuesday but it seems like that isn’t unusual. Food was superb. Service was also very very good. Only complaint was that our meal came out before we were 1/3 the way through our appetizer. That reflect poor kitchen management. Menu has something for everyone so don’t fear eating here with a variety of palates and foodies. We will surely be back!!

We took out of town friends here, and they have been raving ever since, as have we. Had a great waiter who guided us thru the menu with excellent recommendations. A superb night.

A well established restaurant with great food and excellent service. The Crab Cakes and the Shrimp and Grits are a must — both satisfied my comfort food craving.

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!

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.
