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.

Perhaps it was my bad for not knowing that the restaurant is really an event venue. We arrived at 2pm and the place was packed with tables of six or more celebrating weddings and birthdays. We would have left if it wasn’t so late and we hadn’t already valet parked. The piano player would have been more appropriate at a late night rowdy bar than a restaurant. The noise level prevented conversation with my guest and we had to shout our order to the waiter. We dine out about four times a week and are rarely disappointed. We will not be going back to Ouisie’s Table.

Dear Bill, I apologize your experience wasn't up to the level you had hoped it to be. Saturday and Sunday Brunch are very popular that many guests request to celebrate their special occasions with us, hard to say NO. A week day or night would be much better and I guarantee you'll enjoy your time here. We have been a restaurant for 46 years now and weekend events are just part of it. Please return and allow us to give you the great experience you deserve, I will see to it. Wafi Dinari.

My meat was very fatty and the vegetables SUPER salty, but other dishes were good.

Just want to say this time was not as good as the first visit. Fish was tasty but overcooked. Service was great.

Reception and wait staff were very friendly and congenial. Dining room is large with a high ceiling so the noise level is high. Food was good but nothing special. Portions were good sized.

Ouisie's surpassed my expectations. It was elegant--but not stuffy. Delicious food, and lovely staff. A classic, southern-style restaurant with southern-style hospitality.

We had an amazing time for my mother’s birthday party at Ouisies Table. The staff were wonderful and very careful to detail, quality food and hospitality. Hugo was our main waiter and he did a great job. Thank you all, we will definitely pass this on to others.

My friend and I really enjoyed our lunch. The chicken fried chicken was delicious! It was a bit warm in the room with the tall windows, but the restaurant is ideal for special occasions such as wedding showers, baby showers, anniversaries, birthdays, etc. We would love to return for brunch.

Went for Houston Restaurant week. Have been wanting to try this reassurance for awhile. Interior was beautiful. However, we were seated in the covered patio area. Ambiance not as nice...much more casual. We were surprised to see that many of the chairs in this section had black sticky residue (no longer sticky but still black) on the seats, probably from a function where skirts were attached to the chairs with tape. These really need to be cleaned or have the seats recovered.

The food was very good and service was excellent. But a bit surprised imitation whipped cream was used as a garnish for the pots de creme (chocolate mousse). Real
Whipped creme would have been much better!!! Would like to try Ouisie’s again but maybe sit inside.

Superb.. friendly greeter.. the waitress was very professional yet warm.. i had the scallops on a bed of mashed squash and green beans.. it was perfect.. my son had a burger which was also fantastic.. the breast basket is no more but it was replaced by staff offering those little delectables.. choice os jalapeño cornbread, gingerbread , corn cheese muffin .. which was all very yummy! Their seafood choices was yummy and unique.. I broke my keto diet rule today but it was all worth it.. especially with the added bonus of the perfect mimosa!

We four ladies enjoyed a delicious lunch during Houston restaurant week. Delicious food and good value but we did feel like the service was a bit rushed. I have always enjoyed Ouisie’s and would certainly recommend this to my friends

We had a waiter named Russell who was great--the food was great and overall a wonderful dinner.
We were greeted when we arrived early for our reservation and seated right away.
I think my girlfriend really liked it.

Very special place! Ouisie's is spacious but feels warm and inviting. Lots of interesting and seasonal options without being too over-the-top. Plenty of variety. Attention to detail from each server to each plate presentation. Delicious. Highly recommend.

Best ahi tuna salad and grilled salmon salad anywhere. And the coconut bread pudding was excellent and very light, and I normally don't like bread pudding.

Great food in an atmosphere where you can actually talk with the other persons at your dinner. Too often I have gone to places that are more like a nite club and you cannot hear any of the conversation. This place is not one of those and it is much appreciated.

I have been here many times, not sure what happened to it recently. Seating was an issue for some reason, although the place was pretty empty. We were led in with a little bit of attitude and then right back out to wait another 10 minutes to ultimately sit at a booth.

It was restaurant week, but we were not provided restaurant week menus. A couple people wanted to look at it, and we had to request the restaurant week menus at least twice before getting them.

We asked for ice water, one person requested Perrier. The waiter asked if anyone else wanted it, we distinctively said, "No, just her." He proceeded to pour multiple glasses, which no one else drank, removed the ice waters despite our request to leave them and brought a second bottle of Perrier.

We had to specifically request bread service, which, while usually pretty good, was all completely stale.

They subbed out a different vintage on the wine without notification. Multiple items were delivered to the wrong seats. All three fish plates were overcooked. No follow up on the water service.

This experience was very disappointing, especially at this high price point. Big thumbs down.

Service was excellent but the food not so good. My eggs served very under cooked, almost raw, and the french toast was terrible, bread was tough and cold with little flavor. There are so many better restaurants in town the I'm not sure I will return.

Had a surprise dinner here on a Friday night. In preparation, staff was excellent in helping me set up and be fully ready. However, I was told I would get a certain table due to the # of guests in my party, but on the day of, we were put at a different table so it kind of watered down the surprise entrance. Also, waiter was definitely assigned too many tables so order/delivery time/attention to detail was a bit lacking. However, the food, ambiance and good vibes made up for it. He also gave us an amazing slice of Tres Leches cake as well as sang in Italian. There was also a piano player who was very talented. Overall, I think it was a great experience. I will definitely be going back and expect a quality experience.
