Beautiful but...

Love this restaurant but the chicken breasts were very tough and needed to be tenderized.

Their food is always top notch! Wait staff is very friendly and helpful. Love their duck! Sit by the window next to Cahoon Creek and you can watch the Mallards and deer who are often visible. For a quieter, and more intimate, room... sit in the first room on the left with the fireplace.

Another couple and ourselves, decided to celebrate our 20 something anniversaries at White Oaks. Our previous experiences had been very good, however on Sun. Mar.23, it was pathetic. The salads were wilty, duck greasy, dry, and overpowered with sauce. Beef Wellington was served well done and not rare as requested. A corrected Wellingto was served 30 minutes after the rest of the party had finished eating. The rice was salty, overcooked, and nasty looking. Veggies were hard and over seasoned. Scampies and venison were acceptable. The bus boy did a good job of filling glasses and removing dishes however the waitress never returned to the table until she presented the check. What a disappointment this special event turned out to be.

White Oaks is Best in Cleveland

For my money, White Oaks is the best restaurant in the Cleveland area. Outstanding food and a wonderful atmosphere, it just doesn't get any better than this! I would highly recommend the Filet Mignon or Prime Rib, but many love the Rabbit Medallions or Venison!

I can't say enough about locally-owned dining like this. I never had duck before- Holy cow what a dinner. And the atmosphere is remarkable. Awesome date place for 1 on 1. You WON'T be disappointed!

Casual Elegance

Nestled amoung a forest like setting, the White Oaks offers a casual dining experience, without the formality of city dining. Yet the cuisine rivals the best of fare one kind normally only find in the city, with out the city price tag.

Service with a smile?

You won't receive it here! After viewing the White Oak website, we made a 6:30 reservation for a non-smoking window seat. We were told this would not be a problem. When we arrived, no window seating was available. We were seated in a booth --in the smoking area. When we said we preferred non-smoking we were moved to a very small table in a dark corner.

Althought the food was good, the atmosphere was unpleasant, and the service was slow. When we requested coffee and a dessert menu, we were told by one waiter that providing dessert menus was not his job.

We are sorry that we inconvenienced the White Oaks by having dinner there. We certainly won't bother them again.

the WHITE OAKS is tasteful with a romantic can one not enjoy the moment when you are surrounded by the lush greenery outside, enhanced by large windows allowing the mistique of the moment to become entwined with the delicious flavors and aromas of the suculent meal! Magnificent!
