This was one of the best meals and best dining experiences I’ve ever had. Every detail from the valet service, to the host, the waitstaff, the manager, and most definitely the food was just superb. Elegant and classy atmosphere without being pretentious. Great wine selection,...great appetizers/entrees/desserts selections of foods you know and love, perfectly prepared in new and exciting ways. I can’t wait to go back.More

At the end of April, I held my son’s rehearsal dinner on the patio at Ouisie’s Table. The entire evening went off without a hitch. The room was beautiful, the food amazing and the staff went above and beyond the call. We had several out-of-state...guests, and many complimented me on the evening pointedly commenting on the friendly, helpful staff. A big thank you to Ouisie’s for kicking off the wedding weekend with a huge win by showing off our Texas hospitality. Not only will I call them again when I need to schedule another special event but will highly recommend them at every opportunity.More

We recently had my son's Rehearsal Dinner at Ouisie's Table and it was outstanding. We had 44 attendees in Lucy's Porch, which gave us plenty of room to mingle and chat both before and during the dinner. Working with Ouisie's Table to arrange the dinner...was very comforting as they have done this many times. We picked Miss Ruby's Signature Dinner which everyone that was great! The two wines (white and red) were very good also. The three Hor D' Oeuvres were excellent and all liked the variety. The waitstaff were attentive, not overly so, which we appreciated. The restaurant was packed that night and the kitchen did a fine job getting all of our meals out to us at the same time. We used a sound system for all the speeches, that was essential. We highly recommend Ouisie's Table for an occasion like this!More

We had over 75 people at the rehearsal dinner in the main dining room for our son's wedding and it was perfect! Francesca from Quisie's is the perfect event planner and guided me through the process. Shundra of Anderson Atelier designed and decorated the place...with the most amazing flower arrangements and decorations. They were outstanding. The night of the event Edwardo attended to our every need and the food, of course, was spectacular! Rave reviews on all the food! Rachel Neiman provided outstanding artwork on the chalk board. The bar tenders and wait staff were experts at their jobs and very professional. The cocktail hour started the evening in the garden and the entire night was magical! In my imagination I could never have asked for a more perfect evening! I would recommend Ouisie's to everyone I know!More

Went to Ouisie's table for a Friday afternoon lunch.....we had heard wonderful things and were expecting a great meal. What a disappointment. ALL the food was blah.....not taste, no seasoning. The deviled egg appetizer was blah and all you could really taste is the dill....We than waited far too long for our main meals (~45 minutes, but probably longer), such that we were ready to get up and ask for our meals take-away rather than wait any longer. The food came and it was blah....no taste, no seasoning, nothing. In my shrimp-n-grits the shrimp tasted boiled: bland, no seasoning, no char marks, nothing. On top of all that, the wine also was blah....no taste, no body, no finish. An amazingly bland experience and very forgetful. The only saving grace was our server (Danielle) who apologized profusely....it wasn't her fault the kitchen was SO slow and the food blah. Not a word from the Manager either who seemed pretty much oblivious to everything going on although he semed to make himself look busy. Bland food, VERY slow kitchen......be prepared to wait a long time for food you will likely want to forget.More

They did not have close to enough staff to support the amount of patrons on a Saturday night. It took 2 hours to get our food and that was after we ordered and they came back twice to tell us they did not have anymore...of what we ordered. Another unfortunate quality is the restaurant was extremely loud, let me emphasize extremely. It was the worst instance of loud restaurant I have ever experienced. The food was good but did not outweigh the negatives. We will not be going back. Poor service, extremely loud and obviously not ready to be open.More

Ok if you haven't been there you ware wondering what is the comfort dog. Well, if you request, they will put a lifesize statue of a dog ( looks a bit like a Weimaraner )at your table, on a chair- to keep you company- or...just to turn your mood whimsical. Loved the originality of it- and they got me confused from a distance ! ( props for that). All that and its pretty dressed up- lots of prom girls there when we were there. Very attentive service in a pretty room and very very good food. I know this restaurant has been a standard in Houston for a very long time- but it still feels fresh and delivers a fine meal. First they gave us these delicious biscuits- three varieties - and I would have happily made a meal just of them. Loved them all- We had an excellent array of oysters to begin with-very crisp and well dressed Caesar salad, and steaks cooked perfectly. Nice round table too that made it easy for us all to talk to one another. It was all a big hit.More

Delicious chicken salad sandwich with yummy house made chips. The Stilton kit with grilled chicken was also lovely. Always love the mini biscuits and muffins served with whipped butter. And the lemon ice box pie really good! This spot for lunch never disappoints!

We held our son's rehearsal dinner at Ouisie's Table recently and it was pure perfection. They go above and beyond to make everyone happy. They have terrific waitstaff, a great bar, and wonderful food. Their setting is magical. After struggling with other venues and during...this challenging time, it was a miracle that we found Ouisie's Table. We were treated like members of their family and I can't wait to visit them on our next trip to Houston! Thank you for everything!!More

Went for lunch with friends. Everything about this place is classy. Wooden floors, great bar, wall hangings, etc. The service was stupendous and the food was plentiful and delicious. We went for lunch and my friends had a 3 course meal for $20 as they...extended Restaurant Week until end of Sept. I had a pimento cheese sandwich with bacon. Very good. Servers wear masks and gloves. Tables are more than 6 ft apart. Reservations are recommended. There is valet parking for $3.More

Husband and I went to lunch at Ouisie's Table for Houston Restaurant Week (HRW) (during the pandemic). We were quite pleased! All wait staff were in masks, tables separated for social distancing, food was delicious, and waiter very good. We had never heard of Ouisie's...Table before we saw the name on the HRW list. We are so glad we tried it! Apparently under normal operations, parking is limited. Google maps had us parking at a lot nearly a half mile away. Fortunately we decided to try parking at the restaurant, and there were several spots available, along with valet parking. We both ordered the Mediterranean salad, 4 oz filet & shrimp for the entree. I had the lemon ice box pie for dessert, and husband had apple strudel. I am not a fan of salad dressings, but this one was great. The waiter suggested a bottle wine and it was also good with the meal, and not expensive. All in all, a great meal which also helped out the Houston Food Bank.More

We celebrated a special day with lunch at Ouisie's Table. The atmosphere was relaxed southern comfort. The beautiful bar was closed due to the covid restrictions but I would love to have a drink there in the future. My husband and I both ordered their...famous chicken fried steak and it did not disappoint us. The mustard greens, mashed potatoes and cornbread were really good. I could have eaten a basket of little cornbread bites. I will definitely go back and save room for dessert next time.More

Dinner on a slow weeknight at this restaurant can be rewarded with superb service and food, when the restaurant is only half full, if that. I started with a tasty, Pinor Noir from Oregon, poured by our waiter Russell which was a nice touch. At...his recommendation, I ordered the Sea Bass, a fabulous tender and generous portion, perfectly cooked, which came with a wonderful vegetable risotto and perfectly steamed broccolini. I started with the candied pecan salad, which was also sublime. A shot of espresso -- very smooth -- brought a nice ending touch to the evening. My friend and I appreciated the no rush treatment by the waiter, and ideal timing of the dishes. It allowed us a nice opportunity to talk and talk. Can't wait to go back to try another of the many offerings on this menu.More
