You can’t go wrong with a place that has a load-bearing wall made of almost every whiskey known to man. Great food, drinks, staff and atmosphere.

The food was nice, and the service was good-ish.

I say this because despite the fact I made a reservation there wasn’t a spot available for me inside, bearing in mind I was dining alone.

I understand mistakes happen, but still, kind of dampened the experience.

Staff were friendly and the space itself was nice. The food took a very long time to come and came out cold. We were sitting outside with no heaters so when the cold food arrived we were trying to eat fast so it wasn’t completely freezing when we were eating it. Cocktails were very small and not worth the price. Aside from the fact the food was so cold the food was nice so it’s a shame we couldn’t enjoy our meal.

White Oaks is a great little haunt with a good range of dishes and cocktails. Unfortunately not many Vegan options (just two and they are sides), so not suitable for dining, but OK for snacks to have with drinks. The service was fantastic, all the staff were great to us, would highly recommend White Oaks and we'd definitely go back again.

I was looking for a place to converse without shouting. At times the music was too loud making hard to talk. So this affected the score on the ambiance.

Food and drinks are amazing, great southern style but not overly sweet for the Australian palate. The service is always prompt and the staff talk about the food with a passion. We went when they had a musician playing which added to the feel.

Amazing little neighbourhood gem in Greville Street. Delicious South American cuisine, authentic Mexican flavours and great wine/cocktails to match. Was a Wednesday night and it was fairly busy so speaks for itself! Great ambience. Highly recommend

Great drink and food through I feel the portion sizes could be a little bigger for the price.
Otherwise, it's a great venue with a good vibe.

Been a regular for a few years now and White Oak doesn't disappoint.
The service and food are top-notch, the variety in cocktails and drinks is outstanding, to say the least.
The ambiance is friendly but not over the top.
The music playing compliments the bar and gives it a real 'Southern feel' without being too in your face.
The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and are always up for a chat.
I highly recommend The White Oak saloon.
