I went to the White Oak Kitchen and Drinks for a business dinner! The server suggested the Hummus and it was fantastic! A nice blend of hummus and pepper! I had the Shrimp Pad Thai for dinner. It was quite good! I would return!

The food is not bad but there is few options, fine for early breakfast (before 10:00) since it is into the Westin Hotel but for lunch and dinner there are better options into the Galleria Plaza and around. It's expensive.

This restaurant was accompanying for our 9 person group however the menu is very limited. I had the burger with egg and it seems a bit dry. The service was friendly and efficient. But so many more options in this area for a better selection.

Enjoyed a delicious breakfast of Green Goddess Juice, Upside down corned beef hash with Challah Bread, Bacon & Egg Quesadillas. Service was near perfect except maitre'd was busy having a coffee and not at her station ready to receive guests - everyone else was brilliant. Food was delicious and served on hot plates.

This was my first time eating at this restaurant. Everything on the menu looked so good. I went with the Kitchen Burger. The meat was so fresh and the truffle fries were delicious. Will be going back to try other menu items. The prices are reasonable as well. You definitely get your money's worth.

Not being overly hungry I stopped in for a couple appetizers. The wings were very good (salt and pepper). Nice and crisp with a good dipping sauce. They were a tad pricey but worth it. Also had some dumplings and together they hit the spot. Perhaps a quicker although more limited option than the Cheese Cake Factory down the hall.

The price of the food overshadows everything else. The food is your average bar food that doesn't have much taste and is so over priced it's ridiculous. It is no wonder the place seemed nearly empty all of the time.

We were hungry and most places were closed at 9 at the mall. So we were resorting to Cheesecake, but they had a 20 minute wait. Luckily I found White Oak. No wait and MUCH better food for similar prices. I don't know why it wasn't busier. Great selection of chef prepared meals. Waiter was awesome, helpful, and funny. Too... More

I'm from the South. Let's just say this restaurant was beautiful and made my 16 friends and I comfortable. Of course I got the chicken & waffles and macaroni and cheese. Great food selection and confidently located in the mall. Shopping + food is a win win for me.
