It may be known as a beloved River Oaks restaurant, but Ouisie's Table is also an ideal venue for wedding receptions and ceremonies. Accommodating party sizes from eight to 250 people, the restaurant has numerous options for your big day.
Designed by founder Elouise Adams Jones, the restaurant was created to feel like a large and welcoming Texas farmhouse, much like the one Jones grew up in. Her intentions were to capture that same sentiment of family and warmth which now permeates the space, no matter which part of the venue you choose.
Got a small party? Intimate weddings are well suited to Cooper's Bin, a secluded wine room with a soft and romantic ambiance that holds a maximum of 14 guests. For a slightly larger reception or ceremony (20-50 guests), consider Alsey's Nest and The Little Garden. The rustic dining room is named after the architect who assisted in the restaurant's design, and includes a charming fireplace.
If you're planning on 55-90 guests, the enclosed Lucy’s Porch is an excellent option for an indoor-outdoor feel. It's a long, sophisticated room that opens onto the patio, with access to The Bears Garden. To book the Main Room with The Bears Garden, your party should be anywhere from 75-150 guests. This space has tons of character, with a large stone fireplace and a huge chalkboard that you can personalize with messages and artwork.
Owner and operator Wafi Dinari extended the garden spaces to create elegant, outdoor ceremony spaces. The enclosed porch was also extended to allow more seating and to install a wooden floor — perfect for dancing the night away.
Going all out? The full restaurant can be booked for parties of 200-250 guests and grants you access to all rooms. If you're an outdoorsy couple, the Bears Garden can be reserved solo for ceremonies with 50 or more guests. The Little Garden is also available for 50 people or less.
Because the last thing you should be worried about for your wedding is logistics, Ouisie's Table provides an on-site event coordinator to ensure your party goes off without a hitch. And you're free to take advantage of the full-service, in-house pastry department, as well as the restaurant's award-winning menu of Southern brunch, lunch, and dinner dishes. Booking your wedding here is one-stop shopping, but feel free to bring in your own decorator, florist, DJ, musician, or even a live band.
Whether out-of-towners or local Houstonians, your guests will discover it's easy to access the venue from 610 and the Galleria, plus there are valet or self parking options.
One last thing to consider: the restaurant requires no deposit, no room rental fees, and no server or bartender fees. Talk about a happily ever after.
