Good food

Ordered Zucchini frites as starter and it was very very good, crispy crumb and not very greasy, came with two dips both were good. For entrées we took pistachio crusted salmon and wok beef. Both were excellent. One starter and two entrees no alcohol $60.

I had a great lunch at White Oak. I had a burger with no bun and sweet potato waffle fries. It was just the right amount of food and the price was reasonable. The waitress was pleasant, quick, and efficient. I couldn't ask for more for a business lunch.

Had no idea it was a part of the Westin, but between that and the mall it's in, you pretty much get what you expect. Service was ok, food pretty average, overall a decent in and out experience to break up the shopping.

This is not your typical breakfast. They had interesting omelets and all kinds of organic dishes. The fruit was so fresh. Fresh juices. The tea selection was great. We went here with the family. Everyone was happy with their food. Service was great. It was nice that all the servers help each other so you are never left unattended. Really... More

This place is located in the Galleria, which is always crowded, by the ways.I decided to make a selection from the lunch menu since I would have a larger meal later in the evening. I selected the Chinese chicken potstickers and the smoked Mac and Cheese. Both were really good, but the plum sauce for the potstickers was really amazing.... More

We ate here many mornings and enjoyed the fact that the restaurant would let us tailor our breakfast to our liking. Service was good although patchy depending on who was on and how busy they were. The only downer was the coffee (it was terrible) however it appears that this is how the locals like it :(

as a vegeterian, these were delicious as I ate them like fries. =) For a nice portion, they were like $4.00, to me, not bad for something healthy. They were served with salsa. So good.

This small restaurant is within the Westin Hotel in the Houston Galleria, and serves a very elegant brunch menu. It was very crowded when my family and I visited, but the servers and managers circulated with proper thanks for our patience during a rather long wait. I'm sure it was due to the Thanksgiving crowds. The servers go out of... More

Have been coming to Twin Oaks for several years especially eating at the bar. Its the best place to eat because ROBERTO and LUPITA are the best. They make my experience eating so pleasant, I only come when they are here. Great atmosphere
