Don't recommend sitting in the downstairs area - it feels hot, still, and quiet. Food was good and that was pretty much the only redeeming quality.

There are so many dining options in Philadelphia we won’t likely return. Our food was poorly timed, forcing the entrees to be piled on top of our half eaten appetizers. When I voiced displeasure I was totally dismissed. An offer to appease the error of comping a ‘few appetizers’ never materialized. And the manager and food server gave minimal lip service without any care. Combing it was a Mothers Day celebration intended to dine in a welcoming space with good food, the infraction was rather frustrating. The dismissal was more the deal breaker. Go elsewhere.

Initially they didn’t want to sit our large group cause two people were still parking. Which was next to impossible with the movin day on campus. They eventually did sit 5/7 of our party. Food was good not great. Overly priced for what it was. Small portions etc. I’ve been to other white dog locations and had a much better experience. They got a few of our main dishes off by a little bit but we’re able to correct that quickly. Overall I would go back to a white dog cafe just not this particular one.

We were also celebrating a birthday but it was not acknowledged by our server or host. We also requested to be seated in the living room but got seated in the worst and claustrophobic table in the wine cellar. The staff looked miserable and distracted. My fiancé is a professional chef with 15 years experience in fine and casual dining and we could tell the kitchen was mismanaged and unorganized. There was an unacceptable amount of fat in the pork belly bennies dish that was unbeatable because someone didn’t clean or cook the pork correctly. This was our first time here and we were so disappointed with the experience we will not be returning. I understand the restaurant industry is suffering and there is inflation, but damn the food was not worth all that money. We had to go eat some tacos at our favorite place later that day because this place left a bad taste in our mouths.

We were at the restaurant on time but was told that there was no available outside seating and we would have to dine indoors. We had a theater performance at 7:30 and by then there was no where else to go. I was very upset and spoke with the manager Mabel who opened a table for us in the cellar where we would be the only diners. Our server Phoebe was attentive as well as Mabel and we had a lovely dinner and made it to our show on time. The check in hostess was very curt and non-accommodating but the manager was wonderful and saved the dining experience:)

Overcooked salmon and incorrect burger order. We were looking for a relaxing, yummy meal that we have grown to count on with the suburban locations. This location just lacked professional service, attention to detail and overall enjoyable dining experience.

Waitstaff initially took care of our orders timely, but then we sat for about 30 minutes with nothing. Large table seated after us and next to us received their food before my party of two. We had to flag down the manager for help, then learned that our order had gotten lost in the kitchen. Food came quickly after that, but we were rushed to eat and leave in order to make a meeting. Manager handled our check, and our server didn’t come back. We noted on the way out that they were serving outdoor diners out front— and we were seated in the back dining room inside. Spread too thin during a busy lunch rush? Unsure. Grateful that I had good company, as the dining experience was uncharacteristically disappointing. However I won’t let one experience prevent me from going back!

Pros: Atmosphere is amazing, food was tasty, & staff was friendly. They have vegan & gluten free options, which were needed by some in our party. Cons: Service was slow & the prices are high for the area.

It was apparent the liquor had been watered down. I know this drink well. If not for that I would have given this restaurant a better rating. I believe you should get what you pay for and not a watered down version. This was a birthday dinner and we were hoping to be sat with a room with dogs as decoration as this is why we chose this restaurant but Alas we were sat in a bird house room and the restaurant was not busy at all. They also did not have white dog shorts in stock to buy for gifts And was told to order them on line instead.
