White Oaks Restaurant
White Oaks Restaurant began business in 1928, but its doors wouldn’t open until staff had spied visitors through a peephole, creating an aura of mystery that’s never quite left this fine-dining establishment. Proudly touting its history as a hotspot for imported booze and high-stakes gambling during the Prohibition era, the restaurant—voted Cleveland's best romantic restaurant by viewers of Fox 8 in 2011—now celebrates the legalization of spirits with a towering wine rack and solid-gold bust of Johnnie Walker. Six wood-burning fireplaces cast their crimson glow off plates piled with high-end American cuisine, from succulent seafood to creative game dishes such as venison. Elegant wood paneling spans the lodge-like dining room, where a glass wall on the east end overlooks an arboreal wonderland and burbling creek.

“Very good food, cozy spot. Get there in time to see the deer being fed.”
“A good plate, not just a steak on a plate with a fork, salad bread carrots and greens, nice presentation and a olive carrot celery dish with cottage cheese to start...”
“A good plate, not just a steak on a plate with a fork, salad bread carrots and greens, nice presentation and a olive carrot celery dish with cottage cheese to start with your drink, still a little expensive for the quality of steak and size, but the atmosphere makes up for it, still my favorite place.”
“Lovely atmosphere and great food!”
