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.

Took my kids including grandkids for an early brunch this morning! The food and the ambiance is always great! The wait staff made our grandkids feel right at home. They had French Toast and fruit, which was perfect! The adults had the Benedict’s- Ouisie’s and Crab... they were terrific! The mimosas were delicious and the coffee drinks were perfect!!!
Highly recommend this spot for a nice brunch, lunch or special dinner!!!

First time visit - came for Sunday brunch and it was great! Fun atmosphere & service was amazing! Food was very good except husband’s chicken was a bit too peppery on his chicken & waffle plate. Will be back!

I always enjoy dining here, and since the pandemic, I have tipped above 20%. I was a bit disappointed on my last visit when my waiter forgot to bring the soup I ordered. I reminded him after he brought the main course. It would have been a nice gesture to know charge me for the soup since he forget to bring it before the main course.

3 of the 4 of us had the Chilean Seabass, I believe it could have been cooked just a little longer. But the Nice Crunch on the outside was Amazing!
We will definitely be back! Nice Place for a Special occasion for sure. It was our Anniversary. We will all be glad when the Mask can come off. It's so hard to be personable with a waiter you don't know & he's hidden behind the mask!

The ambiance was outstanding, very comfortable, casual yet elegant and fun. Our server, Aldo, was very welcoming, prompt, made excellent suggestions and even asked if it was our first visit, then shared the history of the restaurant with us. This was the perfect way to round out our Valentine’s Day and we will definitely be returning in the future.

I have eaten at Ouisie’s Table since the restaurant opened in its original location on Sunset near Rice University. The quality of the food and service is always excellent. Ouisie’s is our “Go To” restaurant for special occasions, birthdays and graduations.

Appetizers were terrific! Salads and dessert were lovely and the drinks were fine - if pricey - but that was expected. Unfortunately, the duck confit was not up to par and the lamb chops....eventually amazing came to the table as though they left the fridge and spent 1 minute on the grill. This was our first time here and we wanted to love it...it was "good."

The other thing I noticed...the place was BUSY...honestly...uncomfortably so...we will go back because we loved the idea of the place...but honestly, it likely won't be before we have had vaccinations.

Excellent overall experience. Our food was slow to come despite a not too crowded restaurant but our waiter was attentive and apologetic. The New Orleans Red Snapper was well flavored but over cooked. Still, a great overall meal.

We had a fabulous time dining at Ouisie's Table on Saturday for brunch. I had my in-laws and parents in town, and was so excited to bring them to dine at Ouisie's. As usual, the service was top-notch and everyone was raving over their food. They went above and beyond for my 2-year old daughter, bringing the bar dog "Patience" over to sit at the table with us - they even made the dog a drink! It was such a fun and special touch. We love Ouisie's and will continue to support them.

I love dining at Ouisie's!! The country club charm is elegant and down to earth. The ambiance is sweet, warm and cozy with plenty of space to stretch out for large or small occasions.
The menu selection has an exquisite variety, something for everybody.
I always feel relaxed and far away from the bustle of city life.
