Nice place. Accessible from Westin hotel or attached mall.

Good range of dishes a a decent price. Had to remind the waiter that he had only brought 2 of the 3 coffees ordered. An easy mistake to make. No issues.

The food was OK, but the ambiance was not great. Alarm bells rang when we sat down and the waitress dropped two plastic straws on the table. The person who served me should be working at McDonalds. Sorry, but she could not have cared less. But the food was quite nice and well presented. Given that it was presented as... More

As we were shopping at the galleria, we came across this place. First time we have been in here and I must say we had an excellent brunch there. Things a little different on the brunch menu than the norm. I had fried chicken and my husband had the pistachio encrusted salmon. Both meals were tasty and very nicely presented.... More

I just love eating here because the management has done such a great job of ensuring the customers experience the absolute best. From the food and atmosphere to the service - it is all so polished and thoughtfully organized. I would recommend this to anyone for any occasion. If you do come, I recommend asking for Sonia to be your... More

A group of us that work in the Galleria area eat breakfast here weekly. We receive a great value breakfast with excellent service. Our fantastic server Lupita, is our phenomenal regular server. She knows our orders by heart and provides us fantastic service. We would not eat there weekly if she was not there!

Very good food and excellent service. The only comment we have is that in 2 of our visits we wait 20 minutes or more for our food.

Went for breakfast after staying at the Westin Galleria. We had 1/2 off vouchers from the hotel which with the vouchers the cost was equivalent to the price you would pay say at iHop or similar. Pancakes tasted premade (frozen), scrambled eggs tasted like the powdered kind you add water to, the potatoes were bland, dry and chewy like buffet... More

With almost everything in the Galleria closed Sunday evening, it was great to find the White Oak Kitchen still serving. MELISSA was a great server, pointing out variations that weren't available on the menu. She was extremely attentive, keeping hot and cold drinks constantly refilled. Separate checks were no problem
