Great service, great food, great experience! I would definitely go back and recommend to others. The Beignets is a great appetizer starter; you almost won't want to share after the first bite. The Short Rib was amazing, i switched out my sides to the Herb Roasted Fingerling Potato and it matched well. Finished off with the Sweet Potato Beignets which were definitely a hit as well!

Nic.e decor and lively bar scene. Service was good. The food was mixed. Several sides were poorly cooked and remained uneaten at our table.

The crab cake was divine..by far the best item we had. Overall good service and good drinks made up for average fare....

The food was delicious. However, the area became very loud as the lunch hour filled in. Also, our waitress was very sweet and nice, however service time was pretty slow.

Very nice place and cozy environment. It's a lot bigger than you think as the rooms and table extend towards the back of the floor. Excellent food! Our server (Sean) was friendly, listened to our questions, and was very knowledgeable on the menu. His suggestion of the crab cake and pork shoulder were spot on. We didn't have dessert because we were so full from dinner, but I'm sure they are great. If I had one critique, it was the wait for the food. Appetizers came 15 minutes after we placed our order but the entree's took another 45 minutes. We were not in a hurry to get anywhere but would have liked it to come out a bit sooner. Overall, I definitely recommend this place for you!

While all the food was very flavorful, the chicken was quite dry. The service was good. The place was nearly empty but the noise level was moderate because the space is a huge open area, would hate the be there when its busy. It is a little overpriced particularly the $10 for a single shot of Amaretto.... AND to add insult to injury an additional .50 cent charge, which the waitress could not explain to me what it was for and then said she would have it removed but in the end did not. Absolutely NO, I would not recommend the place when there are more quality places to eat the are more reasonably priced and the food and service is always consistent.

We came here for brunch buffet during Dragon Con and it was a pretty perfect. Food was delicious and service excellent. A little pricey, but worth having regular brunch food!

Rather disappointing that the White Oak makes little accommodations for vegetarians. That being said the halibut I had was outstanding. It had obviously been a busy day and our server was obviously overtaxed. Very noisy place.

White Oak was incredibly busy for DragonCon weekend, but as always they were at the top of their game. We got a patio table so we could dine and watch the festivities. Our server was awesome and attentive although he was pulled in a thousand directions. This place never fails us.

I took a supplier to dinner. The location is very convenient to downtown. The restaurant is very nice inside and can accommodate a larger party. We had an outstanding meal sharing deviled eggs as an appetizer, which were good. The heirloom tomato salad was amazing far exceeded my expectations. I enjoyed the braised short ribs; my associate enjoyed the fried chicken.I tasted the fried chicken as well I think the short ribs is a better dish. The braised short ribs were out of this world. We were so full we skipped dessert. Good value for a business dinner. I will come back.

The restaurant is very nice, even a great place to throw a party. We had a small issue with getting our food in a timely manner, but the manager and waiter made all things right within minutes. Loved it! The food and service is amazing, would definitely return the next time I’m in town.

I'm not sure why this place only has 4.2 Stars? It was across the street from our hotel thankfully so we were able to grab a fabulous lunch. I had the rainbow / kale salad that was outstanding in my husband got the trout. Both were stellar topped it off with the chocolate bombe dessert OMG! Interesting wine list nice glasses and fabulous service made for a great experience.

I would not call the noise level energetic, I would call it conversation thwarting. But the overal experience was, and always it, pleasant.

This is a great place to eat. There are lively areas and more quiet areas - perfect for business meetings. I really enjoyed my meal - although I did not care for my dessert, which was the sticky toffee pudding cake. I am used to warm and kinda gooey pudding cake. This one was room temperature/ cold and kind of crumbly. But my entree was delicious. I'll be back again and this time my dessert will be the ooey gooey butter cake -I tasted it from my coworker and wished I got that instead.

We were sat in a room that is usually used for private events. There was a Tradeshow in town. The room wasn’t very nice and it was noisy. Service was not good either.

In general, our overall experience was good. Food was enjoyable, but the service lacked a little. Little too long to receive a glass of wine after seeing it sit on the bar for a while. Also, had to go fill up our water glasses. Since, the restaurant works with multiple people bringing drinks, food and cleaning off the plates, the server could have done a better job on making sure all duties were being done.
