Regional American (Southern)
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.
Lunch and dinner daily, brunch on weekends.

We waited mire than 30 min for our food. And I don’t like that you don’t have a choice not to valet and you’re charged a hefty minimum to park your car.

Dear, We sincerely apologize the food took longer than usual, we will certainly share your comments with our culinary team and work to better our service. We only charge $3 for valet (Appreciated) inside 610 loop, believe me it's much lower compared to the majority of restaurants, some are $10. It barely covers for the valet parkers hourly rates, but we would be happy to waive it for you next time. Best Regards,

I have loved this restaurant for years, however, they fell short this time. Arrived at 5:50pm for prime rib dinner special only to find out upon ordering they were already sold out. Restaurant was mostly empty. I specifically came Monday night for prime rib because it’s my favorite. Don’t advertise a special like this and then you don’t have enough to even make it to 6pm. They did offer our dinner at the same price, but as I said I came specifically for prime rib. Pretty disappointed as I have been regular customer for years. I understand Covid has placed a burden on restaurants, but please just don’t false advertise. Service was nice as always.

I dine here frequently and have never been disappointed until now. We were crowded next to a large loud crowed when other tables were vacant. Two of us had steaks with unedible potatoes. And that’s hard to get wrong. The Tres leches cake seem very old and stale. The gravy on the steaks tasted like it came from a cam. The wedge salad had lettuce that wasn’t even green.
Has the chef left? Don’t go there till up.dated reviews show that things have improved!

We do have the same chef for 22 years and the Sous chef of 10 years now, consistency is paramount, I feel terrible we failed you.

The only complaint that I have is that the oysters arrived cold and had to be sent back to be heated. Other than that the entrees were amazing! My team and I will be back.

The menu is simple but exceptionally executed - every entree and side was among the best I've ever had. The service was fantastic, kind, and attentative. Prices are relatively high, but the food and experience are well worth it.

The service was very good the server was very personable professional and very nice. The food the only flavor profile with salt that’s all you could taste with salt. I ordered the braised short rib a juice there was hardly any juice and the only profile you could taste was salt.

My wife and I visit annually as a remembrance of the day we met, and our engagement a year later. The food is always amazing, they do a great job with festive decorations and the service is (usually) impeccable. Our service last night was spotty, we had to be careful how we ordered things so everything would come out at the right time/order. There was also a "mixup in the kitchen" which delayed our meal, we didn't mind a little extra time, however given the waiter's inexperience our bet is he blamed the kitchen rather than own up to his own goof. It's a great spot, we'll be back, hopefully the waiter will have improved if we see him again.

One of the finer restaurants in the Houston area. My wife and I went out for dinner during the Holidays and had a best-in-class experience from beginning to end. Our server, Tristan, went out of his way to make our experience as accommodating as possible with our special request orders. I've been to some of the finest restaurants in NYC, Houston, LA, and Chicago, and Ouisie's Table was one of the most memorable experiences I've ever had. I'll be recommending this place to friends and family on their next trip to Houston.

Food was well-prepared but small portions for the price. Not great value.Had been several times in the past but not for 2-3 years. Given the price/value and all the other choices, won't be visiting again for a long while.

Food was good but not great. Its been years since dining at Ousie's and was hoping for similar experience to past visits. Lamb was 60% bone with little meat. Food was decent otherwise. Slow service is what I would expect on Christmas Eve.
