Anaheim White House Restaurant Review

: Located in a bright-white, historic 1900s mansion, this West Coast White House has rooms named after current and former presidents, along with opulent décor and professional service. Proprietor Bruno Serato and his longtime chef Eddie Meza revised the menu to feature more artisanal ingredients and traditional pastas, but it still tempers Northern Italian styles with French sensibilities. Start with the hearty and handmade portobello mushroom ravioli or the spicy tuna tartare, which can feed the table. Serato hails from Verona, so one may opt for the savory Verona-style soup with Italian sausage, pasta and cannellini beans. We suggest any of the fresh pastas, such as a classic pasta Bolognese or rigatoni carbonara. For mains, the Mediterranean-style seafood is highlighted by the steamed salmon filet paired with white chocolate mashed potatoes, while meat dishes range from roasted bison and Wagyu steak to rack of New Zealand venison and a juicy filet mignon. For a crowd, order the “Jackie O.,” an invention by pastry chef David Lorenzo, who creates fantasy sculptures from caramel and sugar and then surrounds the plate with bite-size cakes, pastries and chocolate-covered strawberries. Serato and his managers and service crew know their wines, so ask for a recommendation from the well-stocked international list. Sunday brunch is a three-course extravaganza with free-flowing Champagne.

Christmas Eve at the White House
by mgbrks@aol.com on Fri Dec 30, 2011 4:25 pm
 
I visited the white house again for Christmas Eve and boy was it crowded! I do have to say though that with how crowded the restaurant was the management and staff was very attentive in letting us know what was going on. We had a reservation at 7pm and didn't get sat until 7:15pm however the hostess came up and offered us a cocktail while we waited. Once we were sat our server stopped by immediately letting us know he would be right with us. I ordered the Chicken that was rapped in ham and cheese with a mushroom sauce! It was amazing. Bruno the owner was also there walking by all of the tables seeing how we were doing which was very nice since we had never met him before.

All in all this was a great experience and even though we had to wait, they all made sure the rest of the evening went by smoothly.

We will be back
 
Anaheim White House A good overall experience

I had the braised boneless beef ribs that where incredible - I recommend them to anyone. My boyfriend had the poached salmon with white chocolate mashed potatoes. He was in heaven. But I felt everything except my salad was good. Keeping in mind, the restaurant is 100 years old, that makes it even more special to me.
 
Best dining experience by far.
