Went here before a show at the tabernacle. Food was awesome and service was incredible!! I felt like we had 5 ppl waiting on us. We were late and they were so accommodating and our food came out so quickly. Highly recommend!

The chef was able to honor a request for our dinner to make fried green tomatoes for my boss’ birthday. Outstanding. Service level was exceptional. Have the fried chicken.

This occasion was for a work team lunch with nine people. We were seated at a very long table; would have preferred a round table which would have made conversation with everyone easier, but that might not be possible with the room's layout. The food is good; our server was quite good.

We had Josh as our waiter and together with his excellent service, tasty food, and great drinks we had a wonderful time. It was surprising that there weren’t a lot of people there on a Friday night. If this restaurant were in my native Seattle it would have been really difficult to get a table. Thanks for serving us and showing us a good time.

I took a client for a business lunch. We were seated immediately and promptly served. The pace of the meal was brisk, which I especially appreciate at lunch during a weekday. She-crab soup was excellent, glad to see it back on the menu. The burger is also a very good choice. I recommend White Oak for a business lunch.

The waitress was completely clueless - we were a group of 6 paying separately. She brought back all credit card except for one an disappeared. We waited for 20 min with no explanation. She also messed up one of the orders. The food was just OK and overpriced, the iced tea way too sweet. Do not recommend this place.

Booked this based on other reviews but sadly this restaurant was not up to par. Even with a reservation I waited over 10 minutes for a waiter to recognize that we had been seated. I ordered the crab cake appetizer and it was uncooked mushy in the middle. Gross. My husband ordered the scallops and they were raw, almost inedible. No one ever came We had to track down the waiter in the restaurant to get out check as we had tickets to a show and needed to leave. Sorry, but terrible food and terrible service. We are from out of town, so don't worry, we won't be back.

Went in for a quiet lunch, was promptly greeted by hostess and sat. It was a business/personal lunch with a colleague. I brought the family along and they happily catered to our infant bringing a high chair and asking if we needed anything special for him. Damian did a great job on the service and drinks. White oak kitchen is always a go to in downtown for me.

This was our second time at the restaurant we brought my daughter and her fiancé; they were very impressed. Our service was excellent and the food was delicious. I appreciate that there are slight substitutions allowed. We will definitely be back. One side note do not get the small chocolate Bundt cake very dry and unappealing.

Nice outdoor seating area. Food was delicious and looked amazing on the plate. The service was slow because they were understaffed. It would have been nice to have more vegetarian options.

My wife and I made this reservation hoping for a good, peaceful dinner. We were seated beside a large empty table that eventually held a large party of people. During all the greetings and standing and talking I was bumped and pushed in my seat so often that I had to get up and move. We had appetizers which were very good and were going to have the main course and dessert but decided to leave because of all the noise and rudeness. We also didn't finish the drinks we ordered. I was disappointed that the staff couldn't have offered alternate accommodations for us. Really disappointing.

We enjoyed our first visit to White Oak Kitchen. Our table was ready when we arrived at our reserved time. The table was perfect for our party. We enjoyed the food and friendly service. A suggestion - the server should have explained the menu to us since this was our first visit. We over-ordered and could have shared a couple dishes had we known the serving size. Also, I felt that the brunch buffet was a bit over priced at $55 (and we're from Chicago and used to high prices!) All in all, it was a very good experience and I we will definitely return to White Oak Kitchen when we are in Atlanta again.

Had a great dinner with some of my out of town workplace managers attending a trade show. Enjoyed it so much took my wife there the next week. This time I was paying and after $185 dinner for two (we shared an appetizer, salad, entree, and dessert) it was pricy, add another $100 if you don't plan on sharing.
Id say this was a great workplace dinner (tradeshow) but would not be my first pick for fine dining with the wife. This was fine dining and we enjoyed. Great staff and private parking was nice.

Food was great and so was the service. My fiancé and I split the Mac n cheese, the green salad and the bone in filet. We enjoyed them all. The Mac n cheese had a nice kick to it and was a generous portion for just the two of us. The salad was light and tasty, maybe would ask for the cranberries on the side next time, my fiancé wasn’t a huge fan of those. The filet was cooked perfectly. The sauce was a maybe just a little salty if you are sensitive to that, but I enjoyed it. Really liked the carrots, the parsnips were a little bit tough.
