It was our 29th Wedding Anniversary- and the first time we had been out since being Quarantined due to COVID!!! We chose to eat inside - the seating was definitely social distanced (but outside seating was also distanced)

All I can say is “OVER ALL WONDERFUL” from the time we entered to the time we left. The food, the staff, the ambiance and the price.

We have been to all 3 White Dog Cafe’s and each time we had a great time and wonderful experience.

This is one of our go to places when we have out of town visitors and each time when they come back the request WHITE DOG CAFE!!

OH and Thank You for the Anniversary Gift - what a pleasant Surprise!!! 💙💙

We were seated outside as requested on our reservation, but our view was a parking lot and the door where everyone came in and out constantly—so not ideal compared to the other side of the building with a tent with great lighting and ambiance. The outdoor chairs we were sitting in were also pretty uncomfortable. The staff was super friendly however and the food was tasty and came out on tjme. One thing to note was that the dessert descriptions were lacking.

We sat outside and all tables were generously spaced to maintain “social distancing” and I felt comfortable and safe. It was a nice experience and helped to make life feel somewhat “normal” even if just for 2 hours.

From start to finish, a wonderful experience. The ambiance, the food, and the service were all top notch. Oh, did I mention the food? Incredible and highly recommend. You don’t have to go into the city to have a city type dining experience. I would say this is even better than most in the city.

during a pandemic once it got crowded it was a little too close for me right now. the food was OK.....I had the same thing earlier in the week and it was Amazing! My Salad Nicoise was mediocre and there were like three leafs of lettuce, I rarely say negative things but if your going to spend that kind of money go somewhere else, Mckenzies is better.

We had a lovely meal, delicious food with lots of wonderful choices on the menu. It was a little pricier than I remember in the past, but the quality was top-notch. We were seated indoors and felt comfortably distant from the other patrons during the pandemic.

My first Pandemic in-restaurant dining experience, and boy, did White Dog deliver! I felt super safe in the outside seating which was appropriately spaced, covered with a tent (I'm sensitive to sun exposure) and cooled with fans. Staff was super attentive and courteous - even while masked, which I imagine must be difficult.

I'd heard tales of surly staff at other venues due to spacing, masks, etc. and was nervous. But I assure you - not a thing to fear at White Dog!

Food was OUTSTANDING! I had the watermelon gazpacho, a really nice Sauvignon Blanc, and peach cobbler for dessert. I had forgotten what a pleasure dinning out could be and much thanks to White Dog and their AMAZING and FABULOUS staff for giving me such a great experience! Can't wait to go back!

Overall good experience. I know we are dining outdoors but the mice in the dining area aren’t adding to our dining experience. This needs to be addressed ASAP.

We had an amazing lunch outside under their tent - excellent service from Vance - loved the trout and pork chop! Bar service was the best as a drink we didn't like was replaced with a smile and no hassle!

This was our first but not our last visit. We had a really delicious brunch. It was a bit hot. Next time we will sit under the big tent which seemed cooler. Loved the ambiance. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. We want to come back soon!

We’ve gone here every year for the past 6 years for our daughter’s birthday among others times. We always love it/ the atmosphere, dog photos, great service and yummy food. We ordered two fried eggplant sandwiches and I will say, they had very little flavor. Bummer! All else was very good at our table. Drinks are pricey- ordered a tequila cosmo - $18! 😬 Be prepared to spend $300+ on a family of 5 or 6. Worth it but I’d say more of a special occasion place!

White Dog has a beautiful outdoor setting so that you can enjoy a delicious meal. This is our second time there since Covid and, so far, our nicest experience of outdoor dining during a pandemic :). Their mushroom soup continues to wow me! I had the trout and it was outstanding.
