This is a great option for a good meal at The Galleria. The decoration is nice and clean, service is polite and helpful and food is delicious. While most of the restaurants have an extense menu, with various sorts of foods, The White Oak focus on a handful set of appetizers, salads and sandwiches. At lunch, try the Lunch Menu,... More

I took advantage of their steak nights promotion on a recent visit. Solid ribeye with 2 sides (they let you sub out any 2 for the 2 offered with the meal, although I would definitely keep the marinated mushrooms). The restaurant was a bit quiet on the night I visited but there are lots of other high end places within... More

It's a pretty good alternative specially for breakfast if your staying at the Westin Oaks. Food, service and ambience are perfectly find. A bit pricey though.

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
