Terrific food. Terrific service.
We really liked the restaurant ambiance- fun vibe and decor. Service was very slow. We waited 40 minutes just for coffee. We ordered cheese plate and coffee immediately upon sitting and the food came, but no coffee…all food was excellent-honestly had they just placed a pot of coffee and a pitcher of water to accommodate refills then we would have given a higher rated review. I know like everywhere maybe staffing is tough, so measures like self serving common drinks like water might be a time/labor saver for staff…and help the customers be more comfortable. You don’t realize how important just something like a refill on water can be when eating…until you struggle to get water refills while eating.
Consistently good food and service! Always busy which is nice to see and love the environment- warm and inviting!
We waited in a very cramped reception area more than 25 minutes past our reservation time. This is the third time that has happened in recent memory. I will never return to The White Dog Haverford for dinner. Lunch is better, because wait times are reasonable.
There was a huge crowd waiting for tables -- many people were not masked and standing shoulder to shoulder. Our busboy/server wore his mask below his nose. I told our waitress (who was wonderful) and she said she'd correct the problem. She was unable to. I felt very uncomfortable given all of these possible exposures. My food was good and the waitress was excellent.
Love it here!
We took our grandson out for his 18th birthday. The restaurant treated him like a king it was a fabulous experience for him and us
Date night with my husband was awesome!
I love to eat at The White Dog Cafe when I am in the area. They are always so accommodating with my special dietary needs. I loved the arugula and beet salad and had the salmon for my entree. The salmon was cooked to perfection and absolutely excellent. My companion had a burger and throughly enjoyed his meal. Our server was Sabrina and she was very pleasant to interact with and provided great service.
Sabrina is wonderful! The food is the best! Been going to White Dog for SO many years and they never disappoint!
We frequent the Wayne restaurant but we’re in the neighborhood. Food consistent service a bit lacking especially since we were there for lunch @ 230 in the afternoon. Would be helpful if was an explanation or legen given with the cheese plate
Too long of a wait for mediocre food.
Nice brunch menu. We stopped in based on good reviews for brunch. Did not disappoint. We sat at the bar and got good service with no reservation needed.
Apps were brought out after main course
Our server was amazing! She explained everything on the menu so beautifully and provided us with the best service!
The White Dog Cafe never disappoints! Excellent food in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.
Great food. Owner’s awesome. Completely legit.
Great food. Seated very quickly, very nice staff and great waitress. Food was exceptional.Really great evening with my family.
Overall a wonderful experience! We will go back next time we visit Philly
From the beautiful decor to the exceptional service, the dining experience was top notch! The food was delicious and included many vegan choices. The whimsical dog decor was charming. We can’t wait to visit again!
If you are looking for a city quality meal in the suburbs, this is the place to go.
Lovely peaceful evening- just what we needed. Thanks to the wonderful staff and kitchen. Please keep outside dining!
Amazing food ! I had the Mushroom soup and the smoked salmon latkes , my buddy had the tuna tartare . Great service from Amy and her trainee . Always a great experience . Thanks . Will be back
More soup should be served w/ The price of the soup OR lower price ($9/$10). The pork sandwich was soggy and the flavor seemed like it was only pepper, needed more salt & love, the red pepper & idk what cheese? Added nothing just left confusion. I was really excited for this but was left so empty and sad. K.i.s.s! My cinnamule was great & the server was great no complaints. This is my 1st time being disappointed at White Dog. Especially because I spent $60 & left hungry & dissatisfied. Hopefully I can revive this pork sandwich.
The food was simply wonderful, and so was the service. Can't wait to go back!
Food is always good but right now service is slow and poor. Our waiter was nice and doing his best but there was a very long wait to be seated - even with a reservation and plenty of open tables. It took 40 minutes to get drinks and then the kitchen was out of the first 3 entrees we ordered (at 7:30 pm on a Friday)! The meal dragged on for hours. Hopefully they will hire different staff!
Lovely interior. Delicious food
I had lunch outside so noise level was minimal. Food was good and service was excellent. Somewhat pricey for the menu offerings but usually consistent.
Everything was great. Ambiance rating low because we are outside (our choice). Food was outstanding as usual.
Birthday brunch for our son and with our immediate family was fantastic. It was a wonderful meal with great service! Thank you.
The pork tenderloin was tender and delicious and my husband’s mani mahi was SO good
Not worth the money. Seems they try too hard with the menu. Sometimes you just need to keep it simple.
It was awesome!!! Highly recommend
We were seated quickly in a preferred area. Our waitress, Maura, was terrific. Food came out quickly. We shared the Brussels sprout with bacon appetizer and it was out of this world. We also both had the Orecchiette with zucchini, eggplant, burrata and tomato. The fresh orecchiette were delicious as was the zucchini but the eggplant was very tough. Also it would have been better if the burrata had melted into the dish but unfortunately it stayed put in the middle of the plate. Overall we really enjoyed the evening.
Mice were floating around
Bar area dark but guess that’s because it’s a bar!
We sat outside with friendly + effervescent, Tiffany, our server. Firstly the main hostess in blue dress tried to open an umbrella that almost hit me on my head. Tiffany took our order but the outdoor tables were so understaffed that food arrived at room temperature. We also considered dessert given that we were trying to celebrate 2 birthdays...however menus did not arrive and we decided to just pay the bill. Not the best experience at White Dog. 2 Stars for service, food temperature, quality and a near miss by a falling umbrella. I could have prepared a better and safer meal at home.
We waited 40 minutes for a table that we had a reservation on, there was no acknowledgement of us waiting or any offer to sit elsewhere, we waited another 15 min once we got our table to get any service. Our server was terrific, but what came out of the kitchen was pretty inedible…specifically the halibut and chicken dishes. We will not return after many years of being loyal customers.
We had a lovely meal at White Dog Cafe last night. The restaurant is beautiful and the food was wonderful. Our waiter, Devon, was seriously over-worked - had nearly every table in the large room. As a result, service was a little slow and we were not able to get water refills or order a second round of drinks. We will happily be back, though. White Dog Cafe is a wonderful restaurant.
Just an amazing experience- ❣️
