Anaheim White House is still Anaheim’s most famous hidden treasure!

This beautiful historical landmark was skillfully crafted by a gentleman named Dosithe Gervais in 1909. Mr. & Mrs. George Waterman purchased the home in 1916; but soon after, the home was sold to Dr. Truxaw and his wife, Louise. The Truxaw family would call this lovely mansion their home for 50 years. Dr. Truxaw was well known to all in the community, with a reputation for “never refusing to help anyone” and for delivering 3,500 babies, spanning three generations.  He died in 1952; his loving wife remained in the home until she died in 1969.  And sadly, in 2001, one of the Truxaw’s last remaining daughters, Louise Sutherland , passed away a month after fulfilling one of her last wishes, which was to have one also luncheon at Anaheim White Hose. She “celebrated” her remaining days of life with one of her favorites, a special Anaheim White House martini!


In 1987, Italian immigrant Bruno Serato took over the ownership of the restaurant, which now features Northern Italian cuisine.  His award-wining excellence and signature entrée befit the establishment, now Anaheim White House Restaurant, and his philosophy is simple; to treat each and every one of his patrons as a distinguished guests in his home. Simple as it may be, Anaheim’s once “hidden treasure” is now recognized worldwide, and is now a “home” to many.

Numerous celebrities such as Danny De Vito, Andrea Bocelli and even former President Jimmy Carter have graced the home’s threshold.   Likewise, Anaheim White Hose has also graced catering events for many, including Madonna, and has even traveled as far as Bora Bora, to delight dinner guest with our magnificent fare.

Not only has it been a home to so many distinguished guests, but it is also a home to several awards of excellence.  Anaheim White House garnered the
DiRoNa award, a very prestigious award given to only a select few in all of North America; and also the highly coveted Golden Sceptre award, the highest honor
award given by the Southern California Restaurant Writers Association.   Their latest achievement is The Five Star Diamond Award, awarded by
the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences,  which boats Donald Trump on
the Board of Trustees.  New of this cuisine extraordinaire has been the subject of numerous reviews in international publications in Italy and Japan.

From Anaheim to Bora Bora, from Jimmy Carter to Madonna, Bruno’s simple philosophy along with the culinary talents under his direction has not only added to the success of this beautiful landmark, but it has made Anaheim White House a true legend on the international culinary map!

Our dining experience at theWhite House was magnificent!  Starting from the
excellent service and friendly atmosphere, we felt like we were are dining at our own home, but with elegance and finesse!


John Chavez the manager (pictured above),  Patrick Fraigoun our Maitre D’, Franco Pafundo the Beverage Manager, and our waiter Valentin gave us absolutely the best, outstanding and royal treatment that anyone could have!  They all made us feel
like we were royalty, and they served us the best 5 course meals and the most beautiful and delicious presentation.  The meals were prepared by the most talented Chef, Eddie Meza whoose talents go beyond any expectations.  Chef Eddie  has
been the White House Chef for about 16 years.

Our dining experience began at 8:00pm, we were introduced to the entire crew which welcomed us to their beautiful Restaurant.  We were very excited
about this place, and I was already anticipating what was going to be the most extraordinary culinary experience of our lives!

Our drinks were fantastic, we had the best Long Island Ice Tea and as per the Somelier Franco’s suggestion I had the L’Apostolle Merlot (2003), a delicious wine, perfect for the food that I was about to have.


We first got a delicious combination of esquisite Pacific Ahi Tuna Tartare and avocado, then we had their famous French touch; Escargot con Aglio e Erbe; Bourgogne escargots baked with garlic and herbs in Pernod flambe.


Next we had the most beautiful creative Nancy Reagan salads; served with baby mesclun green tossed with passion fruit-ginger vinaigrette, served in a rice paper basket, and a Ceasar Salad Ariana; tender romaine hearts with Parmesan shaving and Ceasar dressing, service in a charming rice paper nest, absolutely gorgeous!

We also tasted 3 combinations of delicious  pastas;  the Juventus Ravioli;
Ravioli stuffed with a combination of Italian cheeses in a wild Porcini mushroom sauce, then the Tomba Rigatoni Formaggio, a large tube paste tossed in a sauce of melted Grana Padana Parmesan, sautéed with bacon and a touch of cream, and the Gnocchi con Formaggio; Delicious homemade potato dumplings with their famous Gorgonzola cheese sauce, excellent!


We also experiment the Pasta e Fagioli soup, prepared with spicy Italian sausage, pasta & cannelloni beans, a truly home made soup that makes anyone

For our entrée we had specially prepared by Chef Eddie, a magnificent combination of their Gamberoni with linguine, the amazing Gauthier Maine Lobster with white chocolate mashed potatoes, and the most tender Filetto di Romeo and Juliette (a petite filet mignon cut, oven roasted served with baked polenta over a sauce of Gongonzola cheese).  Our dishes were  decorated with beautiful sculptures made with golden crispy dough that were so amazing to see… that each dish literally deserves a picture for posterity.


We had for dessert their signature Madonna Souffle, which takes about 25 Minutes to be served, but it was worth the waiting, Grand Marnier souffle served with a Crème Anglaise, german chocolate ganache and a Chantilly whipped cream and then the sweet pastry apple tarte serviced with vanilla ice cream!
