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

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 .

This restaurant had the best French toast that I ever had. Crispy in the outside moist on the inside. Do delicious. Andrew my waiter at the bar was very attentive. I also ordered the weekend mimosa. My children had the pancakes. One order can actually feed two small children. Very happy with the service. Only thing is the Orange juice... More

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.

When shopping at the Galleria, there are large distances between decent eating places. The White Oak is a very handy spot for decent food & wine. They have an evening happy hour and "guilt-free" (low calorie) food options. Start with crab and avocado tower followed by "street tacos" or seared beef and shrimp. The latter comes with a spicy hot... More

We had a lovely diner at White Oak Kitchen, the staff was very attentive. The food was really lovely. My partner had a burger and I chose the squash spaghetti with salmon, which was just delicious!

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.
