From the moment we walked in the service was great. Greeted and sat promptly and held a good conversation with our server and provided many food options. Really enjoyed the overall experience and will be back.

We stopped here for dinner and I was pleased at the healthy options they had. Their kids meal menu was (blissfully) missing mac n cheese and pizza. My youngins did a little grumbling, but eventually settled on the chicken kabobs and they really liked them! The hubby had a steak and I had a gluten free pasta dish made with... More

Good standard American fare. Nothing amazing but if you need a burger, some fries and a few happy hour beers after you land from a longhaul flight then it is perfect.

Very nice restaurant in the upscale Galleria Mall. On lower level near ice rink. Had Chicken Fried Chicken with jalapeño pork belly gravy, corn fritters and mashed potatoes. Was very tasty except the fritters were too dry. No photo of the food.....my phone had a temper tantrum. Full service bar. Good food -- decent prices -- helpful servers.

This place looked so cute. I thought it was going to be one of my go-to American Bistro places. I really wanted to like the food but it was very average. The zucchini frites for starters had no seasoning at all. Not even the aioli could save it. When you tell me "pistachio crusted" salmon, Im sorry, I have expectations... More

After perusing the Galleria Mall, this restaurant offered delicious food, quiet environment, and excellent service. I ordered from the 'Date Night' menu which offered a three course meal. I had the Chicken Pot Stickers, Shrimp Pad Thai, and Cinnamon Roll. From arrival the staff was attentive, and my waiter Luis ensured that the different courses brought out when required. I... More

The White Oak Kitchen is right inside the Galleria Shopping Mall but it is not a food-court eatery -it is on the top floor of tge mall and has a slightly more formal setting than those on the court. It is good for a sit-down chow or just to grab a takeaway. Decent lunchtime fare; nothing too fancy but quite... More

Breakfast for 2 - $44.90. Ok, it's in the Galleria and the restaurant for the Westin Oaks Galleria. But the food was eh - eggs benedict (not runny) and bagel and lox - had to ask for more cream cheese and tomato. So not worth it.
