White Dog Cafe - Wayne
Wonderful DinnerThe menu has so much to offer it was almost too hard to decide. We enjoyed our dinner by ordering a few small plates and shared an entree. The staff could not be more enjoyable and accommodating. We will certainly be back6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and Atmosphere!The food is always excellent and the decor is beautiful--especially if you're a dog lover!!! Each room has a distinct character, including the gorgeous bar, making it fun to visit over and over. The office building facade may through you, but when you walk through the doors, you feel like you've transformed into a Main Line country estate. The original White Dog was a trendsetter when it came to featuring local foods on their menu. Their Kennet Square mushroom soup is fantastic! Can't wait to go back.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible Food and ServiceThe food and service are spectacular! I had the mushroom soup to start (as I always do) and then for an entree had the wild halibut which was the best I can ever remember. My son had his usual: the lamb sliders and burger followed by the cookie jar with milk - a little birthday treat for him. My daughter had the truffle gnocchi and finished her whole plate.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHASA thank youLuncheon for women on school volunteer board to celebrate the end of the school year! It was delicious and enjoyable. Everyone had a good time and loved the food!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM'Special' Night at White DogOn a night in mid-June, three people in our four-person group had one of the entree specials -- halibut with kohlrabi. And we split the special salad of the night -- roasted asparagus with a bunch of other stuff that I can't recall. Both dishes were very good -- imaginative, cooked perfectly, lots of different flavors coming together well. Our waiter happily accommodated all of our requests for customization. All in all, a very nice evening.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambience and great menuvery interesting and enjoyable atmosphere. menu emp=hasizes a natural, healthy cuisine. Service very attentive. Second dinner in two months - both times very enjoyable.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Saturday BrunchI had Saturday brunch at the White Dog, Wayne location--my fourth time at the restaurant. It was an especially good menu, and my party was expertly guided by our server. The food was fantastic, leisurely pacing with attentive service. I cannot stress how good the food was. We shared the cheeseboard and strawberry french toast, then we all tasted one another's entrees. I would have been happy with any of the meals at our table. White Dog honestly does everything well.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved White Dog in the CityLoved White Dog in the City and was thrilled when another opened in Wayne. Love the ambience first, then the food, Wait staff has consistently been friendly, courteous and on top of things. This restaurant makes you feel "happy" to be there. AND, they were very smart to quickly deal with the parking issues when they first opened by providing valet parking during peak times. White Dog is a winner for brunch, lunch or dinner.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have dined at the WhiteWe have dined at the White Dog in Wayne on several occasions. Our most recent visit, on a Thursday night, was not one
of our better experiences. Our reservation was at 6:30 p.m. and we were seated promptly - right next to a table of three and the only other patrons in the restaurant. As the evening progressed, things became quite busy - and noisy. Our server was also
busy and follow-up was minimal. However, our food was served promptly and was very good. The manager - Elliott - was
very welcoming and treated us with great care. Overall, not the best night for us at the White Dog, but we will definately be back.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNOISYA LOVELY EVENING, BUT FOR THE NOISE LEVEL. IN THAT BACK ROOM WITH THE COPPER POTS ON THE WALL, TWO OF US SAT ACROSS FROM EACH OTHER AND HAD TO LEAN IN TO HEAR.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVED the White Dog!I haven't been to the white dog restaurant in years. My return to the Wayne cafe was wonderful. Definitely enjoyed sitting in the sun room to enjoy brunch with my husband. He enjoyed it as well. The BLT was soooooo good and the breakfast sliders were delightful. I definitely want to return.....soon!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDog lover!This was our second visit and we are just as pleased as our first. The restaurant is plastered with all types of dog pictures and photos that are just wonderful. Now lets get to the good stuff. The food is amazing. We had the trout,rigatoni, and the fish special which was mahi-mahi for entrees and it all was splendid. We started with the tuna tartare,steak tartare, and the oyster sampler and the freshness just shined through. Finished up this glorious meal with three desserts, the cookie assortment, pb&j cake and the bread pudding. Needless to say we left very content and eager for our next visit. So so good!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as alwaysI always enjoy eating here. This time our waiter "Matt" made it more of a blast for me and my 2 friends. We went out for my
one friends birthday and she had never been before. Her experience was so good she said she would
definitely be back again and again. The food was great as it always is. So cozy and cute. I'll be back again and again5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLocal hot spotHave been the WD on several occasions and has never let us down...
Love all the different rooms to dine in and the food is always great.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMNot badService was really good but the music (outside) was too loud. We asked our (excellent) waiter a few times to turn it down, which he did, only for someone else to turn it back up again. The music style was too modern and loud and did impair the otherwise very nice ambience. Food was good.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch at White Dogdined here twice for lunch in the last week. The four pastas are an addition to the menu since I was last there. I had the mushroom influenced one and the rigatoni Bolognese, Delicious.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother excellent dining experienceAnother excellent dining experience at the White Dog Cafe. My son cannot get enough of their cheeseburger, parmesan fries and fried pickles. We sat in the library this time and it was so relaxing and comfortable. The White Dog Cafe is top notch and never disappoints.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMCute place with great dishesDelicious food, adorable ambiance. Great place for a family dinner or to gather with friends.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great experienceWe dined at White Dog Café this past Saturday and once again had a wonderful meal and experience. We wanted to sit outside; however, the weather did not cooperate. We were seated inside in a beautiful room overlooking the greenery of the patio. Very bright and beautiful room. Our food was very good and service as well. I had the tile fish special which was excellent. Very nice presentation and just delicious. My wife had a delicious burger. And who can deny the flourless chocolate torte! We will definitely return!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy food fun atmosphereWhite dog is always a consistently good place for a date night or girls night out. I had the chicken with truffle accented mushrooms and wanted to lick the plate )get it what dog... Lick the plate)5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this placeGreat local farm to table fare.

As a dog lover, this place is something that I would enjoy being an owner. I can't wait to go back!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy FoodieOur server Ryan was very helpful in making our dining and wine selections which were delicious. The blackened tuna with pork belly was perfect and my husband's choice of the halibut special was "melt in your mouth" delicious. We were catered to all evening and would highly recommend White Dog Cafe time and time again.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent serviceService was quite remarkable been to both locations several times over the years. Notably the light next to us started swinging wildly, a visit from Madame B? The dog theme is so over the top it is suburban surreal.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Very ExpensiveAwesome spot with an absolutely great ambiance and decor that is perfect for the main line. Food was great but it was significantly more expensive then their University City location which was odd. Overall it's a great spot for a special occasion!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWhite Dog has become one ofWhite Dog has become one of our favorite restaurants! Every time we leave we are already planning when we will return and what we want to try next on the menu. Any guests we have brought here also really enjoyed it.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMconsistent, friendly "go to" spotAlways delcious and imaginative menu. Sitting on the new porch on a perfect Spring evening didn't hurt either.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it-repeat diner, butLoved it-repeat diner, but took a friend this time who relly enjoyed it, too.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding serviceFood was great, plenty of parking but what stood out most was the attentive service of our very knowledgeable server Christian. We would go back just to see him! We had a lovely meal in the bar taking advantage of White Dog's happy hour.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first visit. TheThis was my first visit. The menu had many interesting choices. Not the same old stuff. Service was great. I will go again.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWhite Dog Continues as Wayne's #1Business dinner at White Dog this week. 3 starving business people having flown cross country (2) and across the Pacific (1) all enjoyed their dinners before collapsing from jet lag. High lights are their burger- always great, and their veggies. The fries are great but however they cook their carrots make them even better than fries, amazing!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMParking was difficult andParking was difficult and waitress a little forgetful.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMas always food is gr8 andas always food is gr8 and service friendly and very efficient. noise level is high because of so many groups of women at lunch (and I am a woman!) But food and service and ambience and views make it so worthwhile, who cares about the noise!
DESSERTS TO DIE FOR!!!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Restaurant on the Main LineI love the relaxed feel of this restaurant - just a comfortable place to be. I have been here many times and definitely would return to try more dishes. The mushroom soup was amazing and the kale salad were superb. We had the trout and salmon which were prepared to both taste and look great. The wine list is great and the Service was well-timed and friendly.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulI have been to the White Dog cafe many times. Getting to go there is a huge treat due to the expensive prices, but it is always outstanding. The truffle fries are always a personal favorite and the double cheddar burgers are amazing (especially those buns). The only problem is how close the seating is at certain tables. Otherwise it is an excellent restaurant.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable spotI like very much the design. The service is also great. As for food - one of the entrees that we ordered - scallops, was very mediocre. Kids get a huge burger for very reasonable price.
The rest of the food was delicious. The house cabernet was great.
So I would definitely come again, for brunch or for burgers and wine.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect brunch!Wonderful brunch with unlimited Mimosas and Bloody Marys. Crab eggs benedict delicious!! Gorgeous breads and scones too.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to dineHighly recommend the White Dog. You have to experience this gem. Great place to dine - food / ambience / bar / outside dining. Choices on the menu should appeal to everyone.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly enjoyed our SundayThoroughly enjoyed our Sunday Brunch. Only complaint was even with reservations we had at least a twenty to thirty min. wait for a table. Understandably, it was Mother's Day, but we were finally seated in a tiny corner in the front room. Next time maybe we will request a specific room.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a winner!Food and service are outstanding. The wait on the weekends even with reservations can be a little long, and there really is no "waiting area". But overall the experience is great every time.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI was very pleasedI had heard good things about this restaurant, but this was my first time here. I must say it exceeded my expectations. If you like fresh beets, the beet salad was excellent! And I tasted my husband's tuna tartare which was also wonderful. My entree, Farm and Sea was excellent as well. The portions were perfect. I was sad I didn't have room for dessert. The only thing I might suggest is a little bit more comfortable seating. I was on the bench with a pillow. If you have a bad back, ask for a table with a chair. The prices definitely suggest fine dining. I will be back, mostly likely saving this nice place for a special occasion.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMParking an issueParking lot was full & crowded. Had to park in the back and walk around the building. No walkthru available to get to the front. Our table was set up and ready for my group of 10 when we arrived. Atmosphere was great - lunch time so it was busy and a bit noisey at first but cleared out ater 2PM. Our group really enjoyed the meal!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful time asWe had a wonderful time as always!!! Best Restaurant on the Mainline!!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous!Took my mother here for an early Mothers Day Dinner and everything was fabulous! She is a real foodie and is still raving about the food. Our waitress was excellent with a great sense of humor and very knowledgeable about the menu. The seafood sampler was so fresh and the tuna tartare is to die for. Would highly recommend this gem in Wayne and will be back!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, it was great! MyAs always, it was great! My only complaint would be the noise level. Sat in the main dining room and it was much noisier than the other rooms.. Maybe some sound absorbing ceiling tiles??5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMI brought my good friend inI brought my good friend in for her birthday and she was blown away with the attention to detail. The flatbread special was very good. Anita, our server, was Always close by if we needed anything. All around great experience!!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable EveningI chose the White Dog Cafe in Wayne for my brother's birthday. Neither of us had been there although we live quite close. I made the reservation for 5:30 pm because I had read and heard it was noisy but we were seated in the back room which is beautifully appointed and found it very quiet.
The food was very good although the portions are small. When we left and walked thru the bar it was active although not so that we were affected where we were seated.
Give it a try.
Definitely give it a try.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMIt walks its sustainable talkUnique menu that changes with the seasons, every offering a visual and gastric delight. Wait staff knows the menu. Love the "old club" feel and the dog decor.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
