About 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 for the seventh time—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.
