This review should be 3 1/2 stars, but we can't do halves. The food at The White House was excellent but, although the most important aspect of a meal, it is by no means the only one.
So: the service, although pleasant, was 'spotty'. The slow arrival of the food was acceptable (for most of us) as it was a busy night but the non-arrival of the dessert menu was rather unfortunate, and sent us out early.
The REAL problem, however, was the wine list - or lack of it. I'd checked it out online a few weeks earlier, and it was really unusual and interesting. On the night, however, those wines weren't listed and - after removing the $70 bottle of red - there was ONE shiraz and ONE cabernet to 'choose' from. And this from a restaurant in an area with good wineries nearby. Disappointing? You bet.
Hence the star rating. It's a shame when non-food aspects of a review can get in the way of what SHOULD have been a more successful meal.
