This pub is way above grub level. Everything is SO GOOD from the house hot dog — which is like a chili dog but with melt-in-your-mouth brisket spread over the top — to the sweet fish and chips with malted vinegar mayo. Plus everyone is SO NICE and accommodating you feel like you dropped into a friend's house for dinner. The cocktails are excellent, too, and there's a good selection of beer and wine as well. Definitely recommended.
We've eaten here quite a few times and the food is always great!
They've now added more selections and we loved the scrambled egg sandwich with cheddar cheese. We got avocado on the side instead of meat. Loved it!
Good spot with solid bartender, Nice beer selections and good bar food.
Nice local pub - friendly service - good and plentiful portions.
Good overall place to eat. The waitress was very attentive to our needs. The food was good.
Nice ambience. Chill out place
Food was good. Lined their pancakes
It is always a struggle to find a place for a business lunch where you can easily hear each other and not be rushed by the staff want8ng to turn over the table. When leaving my business partner joked with me that I can't have every business lunch at The Spotted Dog. We are going to try. It really is awesome for business lunches. Best business lunch I have had in the last 3 years in Manhattan.
Visiting family in NYC (Upper East Side). Made a reservation on a Thursday night and found it to be very quiet. The atmosphere was amazing (if you like country chic), the cocktails/wine excellent and food phenomenal. I'm not normally one to finish my meal but it was so delicious, I had to. The only downside was our waitress. She seemed very, very inexperienced. She got our orders all correct and was timely; she just lacked polish and knowledge of the restaurant and menu. To be kind, she may have been brand new or called in at the last minute. My family and I would go there again in a heartbeat!
Small portions that are overpriced. The service was very good though
As a big fan of The Milton, I wanted to check out this new "little sister" restaurant. So glad I did. Some of my favorite dishes like the crispy roast chicken and the mind-blowing cottage pie have made the trip downtown. They've been joined by the eponymous "dog" which is "spotted" with braised short rib plus a few great culinary twists like an Irish burrito. The bartending skills have been transferred as well. The middle room is a bit too "lively" for my taste, so I prefer the slightly more sedate backroom. But with such a kind staff, a good time is guaranteed no matter where you sit.
Comfortable outdoor eating, delicious food and attentive service in spite of every table taken. Would definitely return.
very dark but our waitress turned up the lights so we could try to read the menu. very noisy but there was a sports TV show on in the back area.
$15 for a glass of red wine seemed steep but it was still too dark to read the menu so msybe the menu really did say $15 for house red.
ladies room is for very skinny people. watch out... the floor slants as soon as you enter.
I wish there were a few more healthier items on the menu but otherwise, it's a great place to meet up for lunch. Service was superb!
Had brunch which was well prepared. The eggs benedict were very good, excellent light hollandaise sauce.
Really enjoyed our dinner. Great Fish and Chips! Excellent beer selection. Fun place
Very nice brunch, good service. Would definitely go back and would recommend to friends.
Nice place, went for brunch. with 8 people. Has a big brunch menu and very tasty. The only issue was that it as very dark inside especially for a brunch meal.
We went here for a casual dinner because we were in the mood for some pub style food. We enjoyed the chicken parm sticks appetizer and I enjoyed the eggplant casserole (although it needed something to dip in the sauce). My wife and daughters did not care for the chicken sandwich nor the Caesar salad. The sandwich was greasy and bland and the salad was bland. On a positive note, the beer choices we good.
The food was tasty however the waitress had an attitude that ruined the experience. Too bad since we really enjoyed the last time we visited.
Every time I come here I love this place more and more. The food never disappoints and the cocktails are always on point. The staff are all so friendly and always make you feel right at home. This is an absolute neighborhood gem.
Shepherds Pie had an amazing amount of shredded lamb although was a little too cheesey (and I love cheese). Very rich, flavorful dish!
While there were a few rough spots, we will surely return for another dinner and a pint or two!!
I went for Mother's Day brunch and it was delicious. I had the blueberry almond nutella pancakes and my kids had the eggs with bacon, potatoes and grilled bread. All were really delicious. I would definitely go back again if I am in the area.
