Anaheim White House review

I got a gift certificate from restaurant.com thinking I had heard of this place so

My dish.

I checked it out with some friends. (Note: There are many restaurants with the words “White House” in them.) The outside is lavish. You drive up where you can only get valet parking and walk right over to the White House – complete with a smaller-scale replica of the building which you dine in, white Christmas lights on it and a dainty lawn that has the feel of a front yard. (Though, I am a bit of a gardener and can appreciate a well-groomed yard.)

It’s a two-story building with many rooms, and having gone back with my family, I’ve dined on both floors. They say on their website the average dinner is $35 per person, and I’d say that’s pretty accurate. I couldn’t get myself to pay over $20 for pasta so both times I got the Pollo Ripieno ~ Umbria Region – ham and Mozzarella cheese stuffed in a chicken breast. (Yes, I’m always about trying new things.)

The server was very helpful and attentive to our first visit, and everyone’s dish was really good. They were very big on presentation, and most of us got a wall made of crackers to accompany our entree. Unfortunately the second time, the service was very poor, and being in a room with bad service means not even seeing a waiter for over ten minutes. So I’d say it’s hit or miss, and the second dining experience was of course, not a good one.

But the food was consistently good, and if you’re looking to have a bit of an event in a somewhat fancy place, it’s worth checking out.

  2. You should try Colori Kitchin in Downtown LA. It’s off of Olive and 8th. Really old school and charming Italian restaurant with everything made from scratch. Has that unique homemade flavor.
