This was a terrific experience except for one thing: we never ate there before and requested outdoor seating. We did not realize there was covered and open outdoor seating. It was quite uncomfortable for us to be in the open seating with no shade. We would have preferred when checking in if we were offered the choice of covered outdoor seating. Other than that, fabulous!
Great drinks and food. Katarina was our waitress and did a fine job.
Thank u for my gift card! Nice touch🎉
Then only problem was that it was cold outside and you had no heat lamps. Fire hazard under the tent, I was told. But, always like the White Dogs in Haverford and Bryn Mawr.
We are outside and there were no heat lamps. That would have been nice, it was cold.
We were treating a friend for lunch. We were greeted immediately and seated on time. Our server was friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. We will be back again. Love, love, love the decor.
Food was incredible, server was considerate, helpful and friendly, environment was very pleasant. Great for both a casual lunch or fancy dinner.
Fabulous food. Spicy lamb rigatoni was delicious, as was the roasted chicken. Service was a tad slow, though the server was quite pleasant. The table clearer was indifferent.
Beautiful restaurant and decor!
Seated quickly to a beautiful room.
Kelly our waitress was great, as well as servers, hostesses.
Food and drinks were incredible, esp the mushroom soup and truffle fries!
A great friendly gem to celebrate Mother’s Day!! 🌹
Mother’s Day - great food & service!
Very good food and ambiance. Quiet , great for family gathering or catching up with friends.
Great food and great service! Loved the outdoor seating area set up.
Delightful brunch for our first Mother's Day! They were very accommodating for our 4 month old.
Most recent visit was for Mothers Day, an annual tradition for us. With White Dog being closed most of 2020, it's been over a year since we've been able to visit.
Our reservations were for a 10am "brunch" and were very disappointed to see that their menu has been significantly pared down. The only breakfast option from the menu was eggs—no sweets like waffles, pancakes, beignets that we previously *loved*, etc. There was only 1 special for Mothers Day and it was… eggs! Crispy pork hash w/ eggs. Sounds great, but playing the same note as the rest of the menu—heavy and savory. Not great with a cup of coffee at brunch.
It will be a while until we go back again and will look for some menu updates / expanded options before making our next visit.
Request for outside not considered. Had to settle for a table inside. Hostess staff was not welcoming or even gracious. Narrow selection on the menu. Unbelievably skimpy, expensive salad. The a la carte bread and butter is worth getting. Our waiter was lovely.
We celebrated our son's graduation at the White Dog in Wayne. The food and service was excellent. We chose to sit outside under the tent even though the weather was cold (still wary of dining inside). My son and I both had the filet mignon, which was great and cooked perfectly. My husband loves the lamb shank and our older son enjoyed the farm to table chicken. We also enjoyed the cheese board. The turtle brownie was scrumptious. All in all it was a wonderful meal and graduation celebration.
It would’ve been better if we were at least offered a drink when we got there. We waited a good amount of time prior to any service.
Great drinks (to the top!), wonderful service and the food was great!
Great food and service as always....will definitely be back.
The food was amazing, the double burger was so good 😊 only thing I forgot to add was bacon. I’ll make sure to do so next time!
You know you're going to like a restaurant when the host/hostesses have a personality. You may think that is a standard feature - but no, it is not. These days. They were smiling ( under their masks of course, but you could tell ) joking around while on top of their game, recognizing regular customers and just generally welcoming ! The person(s) who seated us was even happy to hear all about our dog including us sharing a picture ! Brownie points right there ! And, we heard from our server it was their first night !
Hope you like dogs. There are dogs everywhere. On the walls in all kinds of frames, big china dogs, little china dogs, in the bathrooms - whoever designed the restaurants, which also have so many other aesthetic points of interest, is TALENTED. I loved the warmth and coziness, the separate rooms - from the outside it just does not look as interesting as it does inside so it's a great surprise !
I suppose I should mention the food LOL - husband had these little sweet oysters from the west coast which he proclaimed to be excellent, and we shared the bread. You gotta have the bread, people. We had trout with a cornbread stuffing and shrimp bernaise and is their a better sauce because I don't think so, the roast chicken with butterbeans in some heavenly sauce and creme brulee for dessert. Everything was so perfectly cooked, presented, seasoned - and our waiter was wonderful.
Restaurant like this are why I love to dine out. Why I will never take the challenging hospitality industry for granted. White Dog Cafe is doing all of the things right. Thanks for a great evening !
Consistently one of my absolute favorites. They almost never let me down, the food is always great! I was very sad a few weeks ago when I went to eat at the bar and found it was now required to have a reservation. My husband was away and I got up the nerve to go out by myself only to be turned away. For some reason the hostess was a bit clueless and didn't comprehend the situation. I didn't say anything so she never knew that she caused such an emotional response. Obviously I got past it since we went there the next week for our anniversary.
Good to be back! This I has been one of my favorite restaurants since it opened years ago. This time, as always, the greeting at the front was welcoming with laughter Included. I had the special and my guest had the salmon. I started with the mushroom soup which is not on my diet, but irresistible. She had the fresh oysters. Drinks from the bar were just right. They are carefully observing Covid regulations. So, excellent food, drink and service in a warm, safe environment. Perfect experience!
Food was great. Service was good. Nice atmosphere.
This is my favorite outside eatery since Covid started!
Cheese plate was great without options. Menu was boring. Burger was always the choice.
The decor, food and service was amazing~ The prices are a bit higher but to be expected for Wayne PA
Very nice time— It took a little while for our waiter to take our drink order but Phil made up for it by being quite attentive throughout the remainder of the night.
I think their prices have skyrocketed since the pandemic. I know that previously luncheon for 2 was never close to costing just under $100 and that was with no alcohol involved. I would recommend it to others but I would caution them on the price.
Great service, generous portions and nice location.
entrees served differ from the description on the menu - need to be corrected due to allergy issues, and taste preferences
Fun casual brunch with my BFF!
Food came out all at once amd was way too heavy
We ordered the salmon from the menu. It was served with peas and carrots, no flavor and was completely underwhelming. It reminded me and my guest of airplane or geriatric food.
For a place that charges for bread and butter, gotta do better than that.
We’ve always enjoyed the White Dog. They recently changed to their spring menu so they had some new fish and dessert options, so we took advantage. The food is always fresh and delicious. So nice to be back eating at restaurants again.
We were having so much fun that we over stayed the dining time limit.
Great food, fun atmosphere, great service! All great things!
Great food and service!
New favorite spot! Was at the Wayne and Haverford location so far. My only complaint is I can't decide whether to eat outside or inside because the atmosphere indoors is just SO cool. Love this place!
The server was nice enough but extremely busy
It took 30 minutes to take our drink order and another 20 to get the drinks
The food took a long time too
I had to get up and ask another server for water
I have been to this restaurant before and it was great but this time was not good
