It was a quiet relaxing dining experience. Xindi was attentive, friendly and seemed to have great experience with alcohol.

The best thing I can say about White Oak is the appearance of the restaurant. Aside from that, there were not many redeeming qualities. We had Sunday brunch (party of 2). We were seated quickly, after that, nothing occurred in a timely manner. We waited ten to fifteen minutes for someone to take our drink order, another ten to receive... More

like to visit this restaurant every time I'm in town. Very good service especially from a lady call Lupita. She has been the best ever. Always go an extra mile to give the best service. Definitely recommend to friends and family.

Need a quick and tasty meal? Try the White Oak Kitchen. It's located in the Galleria near the Westin Oaks Hotel. I believe it is a part of the hotel although it is located outside of the hotel on the 3d floor. I had two delightful and delicious light dishes that were moderately priced that tickled my taste buds. Try... More

We went here rather late on a Tuesday. We used Open Table to make the reservation so that was convenient. We did it more for the points than for the actual need. There was one other person in the restaurant. The place is located in the Galleria mall. It is sort of near the Ice rink if that helps with... More

I've done a lot of catering from this restaurant and the catered food was great. When I dined in the restaurant, it was not the same. Service was slow and food was not great. My husband ordered a burger, I think Red Robin makes it better. I ordered fish tacos. The fish was hard & bland. A better dining option... More

Visited this restaurant because of the reviews and it was within walking distance from our hotel. Good was great!

This place unlike all the tourist ridden mall traps is actually a nice atmosphere to have a business lunch. They have great lunch specials where you can try multiple items . The service was great and food was prompt. The lemon dressing was amazing try it .

Our server catered to our needs as a party with small child. They went out of the way to make sure we enjoyed our food and experience. The haystack style fries are AMAZING. We couldn't stop eating them. Everything was pretty tasty.
