Waitress was overly zealous - kept interrupting - pressed us to order too frequently
The ambience is amazing. Very cozy atmosphere. The food was fantastic and the presentation was beautiful. Our server was excellent and very attentive!!! Overall fantastic experience. Will definitely go back again!!
Nick was a wonderful waiter! The omelet was great!
good food nice surroundings and nice service. will come again.
Great cosy dinner for a friend’s birthday. Great food and service.
Went here for a first date brunch and really enjoyed the food, service, and friendly host staff. Will return soon:)
Service was slow. Also very tight accommodations. Felt like we were dining with strangers at next table. Food was very good!
I love the White Dog in West Philadelphia West Philadelphia and have gone to many times to remember over the past 40 years. This was my first time in Havertown and it felt like a upscale chain, and I guess it was.
We were a party of 5 with reservations but sat directly in line looking into the kitchen with a extra chair stuffed into a four top, not the best experience for a $400 dining night out. But it was Thanksgiving weekend and I will definitely give this location one more try, but might stick with the original just for a better lever of dog art.
White Dog is my go to place! The food, drinks, ambiance, and service are always spectacular.
Our table was ready when we arrived for our reservation, service was good. Food was delicious. Our table’s favorites were the mushroom soup and the braised short rib pot roast.
The food and service were exceptional. We had a wonderful time, as always, and highly recommend White Dog Cafe to anyone!
We dine there a good deal, and selected it for my son’s birthday because we have generally had good experiences. HOWEVER, this time was chaos: We had to wait almost an hour for our food. The cheese plate was a joke: 3 tiny pieces of cheese and some fruit. The noise level was unbearable. I booked some time ago and requested comfortable seating but we 5 were squeezed in. The ravioli, Bronzino, and steak were ok once they came, but the chicken- 2 orders- was dry and tasteless. We had planned to celebrate my son’s birthday during dessert, but left before dessert because of being uncomfortable, the length of time it was taking to get served, and the incredible noise in the back room, where we were. All told, a horrible experience. We paid in cash, but I would like To be reimbursed for the two chicken dinners and the skimpy cheese plate.
Love going to White Dog just for the decor! But once you start eating it’s another reason to live this restaurant! Butternut squash bisque is excellent as is the mushroom soup! Caesar salad was enough to share! Our server Marina was sweet and not overbearing!
Our server was fantastic and the food was good. Overall I think the prices are a little high for what you get but not crazy.
Waitress was lackluster. Couldn’t get drink orders right. Seemed to be elsewhere. Normally great experience but not this time. Will be back and try again
One of our best eating out experiences in a long time. This could become a favorite.
Food was great. Our server Makoto was a delightful man.
Love this place! The atmosphere is great, especially for dog lovers. The food is very good. We had the duck breast, lamb bolognese, salmon and squash ravioli which did not disappoint. The focaccia is amazing. I have never had a negative experience here! Highly recommend.
Lovely restaurant, wait staff very nice, but the food is disappointing. I had an avocado BLT for $17 - 3 little slivers of avocado, one end-slice of tomato that I would not have used if I was making my own sandwich and two pieces of bacon. Meh.
Daniel, our server, was excellent! Celebrated my mom's 70th birthday and it was perfect!
Mara made the experience terrific. Super server!
Although we had to sit outside in the cold (only available reservation), the workers were very considerate. We got our food quickly, but the food was not hot. Overall, good experience and will be back!
The White Dog Cafe is truly amazing. Not only have they maintained their outstanding service and food throughout the pandemic, but they have brought an experience to outdoor dining that can’t be beat anywhere! Where else can you have a 5 star dinner with 2 dogs with ambiance and heaters? The short rib special was so delicious and my 15 yr old scarfed down deviled eggs with caviar, duck breast and truffle fries for his birthday! How about that?!!!
White Dog has become my Go To place for informal business lunches. Principally, because they're the only restaurant on the Eastern Main Line that serves raw oysters at lunch!
Great food, drinks and service - we ate outside and we were afraid it would be cold but once heat lamp warmed up we were never uncomfortable.
Delicious food in a lovely, casual setting. Excellent wine list. Fun "mocktails."
Another great meal!
Lovely ambiance, delicious food, good selection, perfect round table for 9!
I love White Dog cafe. I am a senior at Villanova and it has long since been one of my favorite restaurants. I am not usually one to leave reviews, and I have always had such positive experiences here, but I feel like I should leave a review as my server made a comment that upset me. I ordered the half chicken and asked for fries on the side instead of the normal sides it comes with. I was told that they were out, and asked if I had a backup option. I ordered the waffles instead and told my server that I no longer needed fries as a side, and he replied with "yeah, you don't need any more carbs". I know he probably meant it as a joke, but it made me and my friend who I was dining with very uncomfortable. I don't think it is appropriate to comment on what guests are ordering, and both I and the friend who I was dining with have struggled with eating disorders in the past and it is triggering to hear others comment on what we are choosing to eat. I have never had a negative experience here before and usually have exceptional service here so this comment upset and surprised me. I'm not sure if I feel comfortable coming back after this service.
Food was delicious and our waiter Daniel was great. Decor is beautiful, perfect neighborhood gem!
Very unique and interesting ambiance! The food and service were both great!
Food was tasty and well prepared, all the staff were pleasant and our server, Emily, was excellent.
I thought the meal while delicious could have been served at a higher temperature. I thought the food was lukewarm. The service was excellent, our waitstaff person Emily did a terrific job. The reason we didn't send the food back was the place was exceedingly busy and I thought it would take to long to reheat the food. I've eaten at the White Dog in Haverford 4 or 5 times in the last 3 years, mostly for a late lunch and the food was always just right temperature wise.
Our favorite restaurant when we visit our daughter at Bryn Mawr. Delicious food and great service!
The lunch menu is a bit precious. A couple of simple, unadorned sandwiches would be nice.
This is a neighborhood restaurant for me so I eat there often - usually lunch. Always good food and great service. My favorite for lunch these days is the Avocado BLT - yummy!
Very professional service and delicious food. We really enjoyed sharing the hummus starter which had a lovely assortment of toast and veggies!
Too many unmasked people in restaurant
I dined with my friend Molly, who I had not seen since we were at university together ~40 years ago. She lives in Haverford, and this is one of her favorite restaurants. We ordered a 2017 Grgich Hills Cabernet Sauvignon, which was lovely. Our waitress was enthusiastic but inexperienced, so I gave her some advice on the wine service. We ordered salads to start, I had the special filet while Molly had the salmon, and we shared the Frangipane dessert and I had a wee dram of Whiskey. We spent 4.5 hours catching up, and closed the restaurant down. Great experience.
