The mark of great restaurant really start with their ingredients and White Dog cuts no corners. The ingredients taste fresh and extremely well put together. I have eaten here many times and each time have been impressed...from burgers, to steak, and fish, it's all sublime. The service can be hit and miss, but never bad. It can occasionally border on...

The place is just lovely. The decor is just gorgeous - it's a place to take someone for a special family guest or the visit of an out of town guest. Our service was attentive and checked in often with us. The menu was wonderful and offered a variety of clean food. Presentation was spot on, too. Unfortunately, my monk... More

We sat outside in a lovely oasis of greenery in the middle of a busy street. The service was great and the food was fresh, innovative and very tasty. The ambience of the restaurant is so cool and if you are a dog lover, you will absolutely love the abundance of dog paintings and dog tchotchkes. The restaurant has a... More

We decided to come here for my birthday lunch. The food is always great & the service is always top notch. The manager made a fuss over my daughter & even brought her a cookie after she finished her meal. Great experience!

Always a great time even if you bring 13 of your family and friends with you to celebrate. Always a great choice of entrees with a wide variety of flavors for anyone in your party.

Loved the fun doggie theme! We stopped in after a trip to Chanticleer with out a lunch reservation. We were served in a timely manner. The food was well presented and tasty. A bit pricey, but a good value considering the area. The reason I gave 4 stars vs 5 was the parking situation. Only valet parking was available, or... More

It really has a special team of professionals working there, and every visit they help make my guests and I feel very welcome. The food is the best and for lunch I enjoy the... More

We went there for a quick brunch and got a table without reservation on Saturday. Food is high quality and well prepared. Small portion and pricey. Nice deco and pleasant atmosphere. I will give three and a half stars.

You must have a reservation for this popular spot! The food is gourmet and the prices steep. There are a number of small rooms each with a different decorative theme, beyond the dog thread. There is an atmosphere of high energy and it tends to be rather loud. Be prepared to hunt for parking. A place to see and be... More

I am familiar with the White Dog on Sansom Street in Philly. Found this sister gem in Wayne. Atmosphere is so homey and canine! Waitress was very prompt and attentive. Had the deviled eggs, a new twist on a very old recipe. Broccoli salad had a wonderful dressing and the Benji Mojito was spot on! A delightful lunch.
