Articles About Ouisie's Table
“The number one priority when we started planning our wedding was to have great food. We're ‘foodies’ and we've all been to weddings where the food is cold, overcooked, etc. Ouisie's delivered on all accounts - great service and fantastic food! We've had numerous comments since our wedding complimenting the wait staff at Ouisie's. All of the meals at each table were served at the same time - hot, and delicious! The vast majority of our guests ordered the bacon wrapped tenderloin and each one of them was cooked to perfection. The servers never let a single glass run dry... needless to say, our guests had a blast. Add to that, Ouisie's takes care of the cake and the flowers as well (one stop shopping!). The cake was so good that one of our friends that has been strictly sticking to Paleo for months ate a bite... and then finished the entire serving. And the flowers... I can't say enough good things about Shundra (the floral manager) and how great she was to work with. All in all, an absolutely perfect event! Thank you again Ouisie’s!” - T.N
"Simply AMAZING!!" - C.S
“Ouisie's has always been one of my most favorite spots in Houston! The ambiance and set up lends itself perfect for a romantic wedding spot. It was at the top of my list when I got engaged and started shopping for wedding venues. It was the easiest decision I made picking this place. From the get go, Jordan was very responsive and always willing to answer my questions or work with my wedding coordinator. I always had an email response that same day! She was always punctual and polite when I brought up any issues or concerns. Now, let me tell you about Shundra. She was amazing! I brought in pictures of my floral vision and she worked miracles. When I walked into the room on my wedding night, I was blown away. She far surpassed my expectations and it was so fun to work with her! She is a true delight and Ouisie's is lucky to have her. The other comment I want to note, is that the management was present and visible at my wedding reception the whole night! Wafi was there to ensure everything was smooth and any need was taken care of. Ouisie's has impeccable service and I appreciate him being there to make sure everything was top notch. Even being very picky, I really can't think of anything that wasn't up to satisfaction. It was truly a perfect and the most memorable evening!” - J.A
