We were recently in the Galleria area. We decided to have breakfast here. The food came out just the way we ordered it and the taste was great. Our waitress, Sonia, delivered the best customer service I have experienced in a while. She continually made sure that we had what we needed and our cups remained full. This industry could... More

Thanks to Qiana, she made up for the not so great experience on our first visit to white oak. Over all the food and service were great. As while as the drink Qiana recommended.

A friend recommended White Oak Kitchen for lunch and a 'trendy, hip, delicious escape' from typical mall food. It was that and more! Kimora was helpful and extremely pleasant from the moment we walked in. Service was the perfect balance of attentiveness and space to allow for a peaceful lunch. Both my sister and I ordered the green tea honey... More

Overall a positive experience. I had the lamb sliders which were great. I sat at the bar on a Tues night and there were 5 other patrons eating at the bar. The restaurant is right on the galleria and so gets passing traffic. I was staying in the Westin Oaks and the White Oak seems to be one of the... More

We had lunch at White Oak because it was not so full as other restaurants in the Galleria at lunch time, and the seating was well-spaced, affording privacy for each table. My wife had a shrimp and mango salad which was very good. We recommend the green salad with cilantro, taco chips, chicken, corn, cheese, and a vinaigrette and peanut... More

I've been coming here since I was a baby twice a year on medical checkup. I love having breakfast here as I feel in home when I'm here.

If you like huevos rancheros this place is for you. Really tasty. Unfortunately the service is too slow. I mean, you have to hunt down the waiters to get more coffee or the check. If you have plenty of time to spare then I guess it's ok.

The menu of White Oak is limited but the value for money is really good. I had the pig and breadpudding and was very pleased with what was on the plate and how it tasted. For sure something to try if you do not want to spend lots of money but still crave for nice comfort food

Migas plate was outstanding. It included eggs, potatoes, and jalapeño sausage (the best part of the dish) Also ask for a roasted jalapeño on the side, adds great favor to the dish :) Our waiter Valentin was amazing.
