    Seated at a very small table which made eating and drinking a somewhat cramped experience. Several rattan chairs were ripped and very old. Dirty dog martini no longer has pickled green beans- I really missed them!! Waitress never told us the specials and we only found out there were specials when we overheard our waitress telling the table next to us- unfortunately we were already half way through our entrees. Falafel burger had entirely too much sauce. Other appetizers, entrees and desserts were very good.

    I called a day before to request the round table in the bar. The hostess said it could not be reserved, but she would try to accommodate our party if she could. Was very happy that she was able to give us the table!! Our server was fun and very helpful. The food was good. White Dog never disappoints!

    White Dog never disappoints. Had lunch with three friends and we sat on the very cute covered patio. Service, as always, was friendly but professional. Our entrees were all beautifully presented and delicious. I'd particularly recommend the Avocado BLT, tuna tartare, and the gazpacho!

    We love White Dog!. Sat outside on this gorgeous Saturday, it was lovely. Food and service were both excellent. Our server Sarah was friendly and attentive. Always enjoy going to White Dog for brunch, lunch or dinner! Really looking forward to their new location opening which will be much closer for us.

    Server Greg was outstanding. As much as I like the White Dog, I felt $28 for a luncheon salad excessive. The chicken on the heirloom tomato salad was thin and lacked flavor.

    We had a lovely young master d who seated us with care to our request for “ separation”…. Even giving me options. The waitress too was excellent. She was cognizant of when we wanted to be left alone to talk, place our order and receive the check. There were many dining options though I would have liked a few more salad choices. The meal was tasty.

    They claimed something was vegan but apparently it wasn't really. The food was ok, not great, and since vegan apparently means "nothing but lettuce and tomatoes", I paid $18 for lettuce and tomatoes. Not going back anytime soon. Very disappointing.

    My client had the cold noodle salad. She said flavor was good, but pieces so small it was hard to eat. I had tuna tartare and bowl of soup. Very good. But Tuna tartare much small portion than the last time. Always love this restaurant. It was busy for a Monday lunch crowd. That is a sign of a good restaurant.

    The best way to find the true character of an entity (person, organization, etc.) is how they handle situations when things go wrong. We had a lovely experience at The White Dog this past Saturday. We were seated promptly in the lovely covered patio and served with patience and personality by a lovely server. We took our time and ordered coffee and donuts while we read the menu, and lingered over each delicious bite. At a certain point, the bespokely dressed host came over and informed us that on the way to the table, our food had been accidentally knocked into by a server, causing a spill that ruined the possible integrity of the dishes. He explained that they were remaking our meals swiftly. Then he brought out complimentary snacks. Shortly thereafter, our food arrived, warm and delicious. We felt taken care of from start to finish, treated with kindness, and fed with impeccable taste. Thank you!

    For a light dinner I had a Caesar Salad w/shrimp and a bowl of mushroom soup. It was wonderful. We have returned to the White Dog many times over the past five or six years and they never disappoint. The cocktails are wonderfully creative and the ambience is outstanding! You won’t be disappointed!

    It was a nice meal but the room was extremely loud, to the point that we had trouble hearing any basic conversation since there were a couple very rude and loud groups, which unfortunately made the experience less than stellar. That being said, our server was excellent and the food was good.

I've been to WD for dinner on multiple occasions but this was my first for breakfast I'll look forward to coming back again. I especially like the outdoor option during these times of worry about COVID
