Beautiful place, very attentive service, delicious food.
First time there, was not disappointed. Loved the rooms and great food.
very nice place. few too many dogs. on the edge of kitsch.
What a nice little gem! Food and service were excellent and the atmosphere was so nice. And the décor, so interesting. We loved it and look forward to another visit.
Restaurant was interesting, but a little snobby for those who don't embrace the entirety of farm to table dining. We found the choices a little limiting and our initial seating right near the work station of the servers to be annoying, especially when there were many other tables available on a low key Sunday evening. The waitress actually was annoyed when we asked to be placed in a less busy area, then put us in a dark corner. It felt like a spiteful maven her part. The waiter had marbles in his mouth and we could barely understand him. Food was good, but my son said it best when he said probably not a restaurant he would return to. We initially went for the dog decor, which was cool .
A great find in a beautiful old Philly townhouse. All the food we had was excellent from the cauliflower steaks to the sea scallops special. Don't skip desert either. Some of the dishes are a little pricey, but the quality and creativity is there with every dish.
We had a lovely time at White Dog. The staff was very accommodating with our party of 3, including a rambunctious 8 month old. We were seated in the back room in a big booth. The energy was great. The mushroom soup was sublime and they have an awesome bottomless brunch cocktail deal which was a nice surprise. We will definitely return to this location.
The staff at White Dog are very kind. My friends from out of town were visiting and they did not pester us as we lingered over our drinks at the end of the meal. We sat down later in the evening so we knew we were not holding up other patrons waiting to dine. It almost goes without saying that White Dog has excellent food; this time I wanted to acknowledge their service.
We have been to this restaurant 2x before, but there seemed to be major problems this time. The seating was uncomfortable and cold. The food/menu seems to have slipped also. The hostess did her best to seat us as close to our reservation as possible (although they seem to have overbooked) and our server was good.
We sat in the new lower floor area and the service was terrible. I couldn’t get my water refilled and the servers seemed frantic.
It’s a fun place and the food was great.
Sad to report that the White Dog was not a very good experience. Menu items sounded great, but did not deliver on their promise. The food was mediocre at best. I do have to say our server was a sweetheart, but the "manager" who was walking around was less than gracious when we needed some assistance with an item that we ordered. She was snooty and made us all feel uncomfortable as if we were bothering her when asking about ingredients in a dish. We just wanted to be sure that we had ordered the vegetarian mac and cheese b/c it tasted like pork. There was a carnita mac and cheese on the menu too. It was a simple question and she was just not gracious or cool about it at all. Why are you there? Just to walk around looking at the tables and guests or to actually help your guests have the best experience at your restaurant? So strange. No one at the table enjoyed their meal very much. Just meh. We will not be returning and will be sure to dissuade anyone who asks about the White Dog. I'm sure they won't miss our business though, because the place was packed. Just not enough good restaurants in that area. It's a shame...
Belated Valentines Dinner
Bun burnt....wrong tea.....very tiny table when other larger tables available....disappoointing
So much better than the radnor location. Little pricey for what it is as it embodies dining persona of the penn campus crowd. Regardless a solid choice.
