About Ouisie's Table
Known by generations for her hospitality, proprietress Elouise Adams Jones, a.k.a. Ouisie, serves an eclectic collection of Southern foods with an excellent wine list to match. High ceilings and fans in the main dining room it evoke the ambiance of a Texas manor house. The adjacent dining porch overlooking the patio and garden, as well as Cooper’s Wine Bin, provide additional dining and entertaining areas. The daily fare encompasses traditional offerings like her well-loved pimento cheese, the shrimp and grits, and the popular Gulf Coast oysters to the favorite Tuesday special Ouisie’s award winning chicken fried steak with corn pudding. A fine plate of grilled Prime beef tenderloin or a brace of quail stuffed with super lump crab meat with Cognac glaze are good examples of the daily specials one might find on the blackboard.

Ouisie's Table Ratings and Reviews

Had Sunday brunch and it could not have been any better. Our waiter was excellent - attentive, always checking on us and very helpful with suggestions. The food was outstanding - I had the eggs Benedict with crab cakes and spinach and it was amazing! Didn't even use the hollandaise sauce and it was the best breakfast I can remember! We are definitely going back! Bravo!

We have an upcoming wedding and we are visiting different restaurants to choose a venue for the rehearsal dinner. Ouisie's was recommended to us by a co-worker. We were not disappointed. Every appetizer, entrée and dessert was FABULOUS. The restaurant was wonderful, the staff was excellent and the manager was very helpful. Definitely a front runner!

Love dining at Ouises. Maybe because it was a long day of serving people on Fathers Day, the service was somewhat slow and not as attentive as usual.

We always like this place. The food is consistently very good, very good attentive service and friendly. Their valet takes up the whole parking lot and holds you hostage for $ 3.00 which is the only thing I don't like about this place. That policy just rubs me and all my friends that go regularly just wrong.

This was a wine dinner, with wines from Australia and a representative from the vintner to talk about the wines. The room was separate from the main dining room, with tables set for 8. Fortunately, the diners at our table found many commonalities, so conversation was lively, even though it was sometimes hard to hear each other because of the noise level. The food was good, the wines were good, and the service was good. All in all, it was a very enjoyable experience.

It was perfect for a ladies brunch. The inside dining room was a bit louder with a wonderful piano player. We sat outside and it was perfect for chatting, and the bottomless mimosas are a must!!

The service was spectacular! We went for a Saturday brunch to celebrate us getting married and they treated us so well that it made the whole meal special. I would definitely go back there again.

Ouisie's Table Always Satisfies
My BFF and I had yet another delightful summer lunch at Ousie's Table. We were seated on the enclosed outdoor patio, which has a lovely view of plantings. A delicious Caesar salad with lump crabmeat was delicious and perfect for a sultry Houston day. Of course, ladies must visit Cotton Club after lunch.
Had been a while and suggested thisfor a business dinner. Very good food and love the way that they have something for everyone on the menu. I had ribeye, only complaint: ordered medium rare, steak came out solid medium. Had it not been a business dinner, I would have sent back for proper cooking.
First time here. Won't be the last!
My wife and I went to Ouisie's Table because of a recent newspaper article, and because neither of us had ever been there. We had heard of its reputation, but never had occasion to go. From the time we arrived, we were treated extremely well. The staff were pleasant and courteous, and everyone seemed knowledgeable of all the restaurant's offerings. Our waitress made excellent recommendations for wine, appetizers, and our dinner entrees. We enjoyed them immensely. The prices were reasonable, and the service was top-notch. We WILL be back!

Very loud, slow service, average food, waiter couldn't figure out how to split our bill and made several incorrect charges.
Great all around.
Service was very good, food was awesome and the atmosphere was great. Noise level was OK as there were a few large groups. The wine list was very good and with knowledge of several selections I can tell that the mark up is more reasonable than most restaurants in this league.

We went to Ouisie's for brunch. The service was great & food was delicious!
We came here for a friends birthday brunch and the restaurant accommodated us so well! We had a morning reservation for a group of 17 girls. The table was ready and waiting for us when we got there. The service was great and although it was a little bit of a wait to get our food it gave us plenty of time to mingle and drink our morning coffee. Would definitely come back!
Always genteel and kind, top place here.

Food quality and taste was subpar
From the fried oysters, crab tower (crunching down on pieces of shell), asparagus omelet to our bacon pimento cheese sandwiches the food quality and taste was subpar. What a disappointing dinning experience it was, as we truly looked forward to our meal. One bright spot was the heart healthy salmon, which was grilled. The three people that had the salmon said it was good. Maybe the owner / management should taste the food.
Love This Place!
We were a group of four for a special occasion lunch. Food, service, atmosphere were wonderful. Our server, Farid, was so funny and efficient. The food was delectable! We had chicken salad sandwich, bacon pimento sandwich, crepes, and chicken chipotle sandwich. Dessert was a fabulous tres leches cake. This is my go-to place for special occasions.

We went through a special time where the restaurant was celebrating their anniversary, with a few options on the menu as a great price value. As well as a few bottles of wine for a fair price. We enjoyed ourselves, the service was good, the place is very nice and their tres leches is amazing! The entrees were not very good.

I have been a patron of Ouisie's since they were on Sunset Blvd. We spent almost every weekend there for brunch and we continued to enjoy the wonderful food and ambience since. We went on the occasion of Ouisie's 43rd birthday and took advantage of the low prices and consistent high quality. Highly recommended for any occasion.
There were 8 of us for a business dinner. I ordered the Chilean sea bass, which was excellent. The service was great and everyone had a good time.
Great Food - Terrific Service
My wife and I brought another couple to take advantage of the special anniversary menu. Although we pretty much ordered all specials they were great and Marina provided exemplary service. The other couple had never been to Ouisie's before, but they said that they'll definitely come back.

It was packed, noisy and service spotty. We had to move our chairs to let people get by our table. Not a pleasant Sunday and hard to talk. We stayed late so we could talk!
Entertain International visitors
I needed a quiet venue with good food to meet with and entertain International visitors. The wine room at Ouise's Table filled the bill. The service was attentive; the food was delicious ... from appetizers to dessert, and the room was perfect for the 8 diners. Wines and cocktails lent a relaxed atmosphere to the conversation, and the food left smiles on everyone's face. I have eaten in the main dining room (and the porch) many times, but this is my first visit to the wine room. If you have a small group (up to about 10) and want to give them a real treat, reserve that space. Thanks in large part to Ouise's Table, our guests have a very positive image of Houston cuisine. I (we) will be back!

Ouisie's Table is one of Houston's uncommon treasures, especially if you're organizing dinner out for someone with special dietary needs. The food and staff are reliably good with menu options to suite any palette. If you have visiting adult guests, treat them to Ouisie's. It's sure to please!

It's my 4th time visited and always enjoyed food and the atmosphere there. Will have another party there in a few weeks.
Have loved Ouisie's for years, but this time the food was disappointing. Eggs overdone, no butter provided for breads, all in all not a great experience.

Got shoved in a corner at a table for 6 when our table was a party of 5. This was after waiting 10 minutes to be seated.

How good was it, well I have 5 starred everything said. My dream was to live my life out peacefully alone with my girl friend on a deserted island. But I'm not going now, unless there is a Ouise's there! All kidding aside, I think it is a wonderful place to dine.

I would have rated more highly, but unfortunately, a wedding party filled the dining area near the bar to begin their party, which was a major unpleasantness for those of us hoping to enjoy a quiet dinner in the area. Other large gatherings the same night included prom goers and a baby shower. I suppose for those events it is great, but if your looking for a quiet dinner, try a week night.
Count on it!
been eating here for many years and overall, it's always a good experience from the food to the service to the ambiance. the only low spot is sometimes at the front desk, the young staff lacks training or experience.

I've been going to Ouisie's for the last 20 years, as my parents were early patrons of the restaurant at the first location. I can't say enough about the service because that's what truly makes the restaurant spectacular. The food is excellent. The wine and cocktail lists are comprehensive. The atmosphere is comfortable and chic.

Ouisie's offered the best Mother's Day Dinner Menu available in town, and it exceeded expectations. The welcoming service was great as ever. The special Mother's Day Menu had wonderful offerings, including Champagne and cocktail specials. The kids meals were great as usual. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for family dinners and special occasions.

The Mother's Day brunch menue was diverse enough to offee options for ever taste, but not overwhelming. The food was delicious, from appetizers to dessert. The staff are friendly, thoughtfull and very engaging!
