    We ate outside under the tent and it was delightful. Our server was fabulous, too. We both had the mushroom soup and the beet salad. What could be improved upon is the temperature of the food…the coffee was lukewarm which the server replaced gladly with a new, hot cup, and the mushroom soup was tepid…though I’m not sure if it is supposed to be warmer but I know I’d like it warm -hot. What is great just the way it is is the pleasant gentleman who seated us and our waiter who was great. We hadn’t seen each other in a long time so spent a longer than usual time at the table. He couldn’t have been more considerate. I’m so sorry that I do not remember his name.

    Food was very good, however, the service was very slow. We didn’t get our appetizers until 40 minutes and our main meal took almost just the same. I’m not sure what was happening. Many other patrons around our table were also complaining about the wait.

    Took a friend for lunch for her birthday. Didn’t know it was Parents Weekend for Villanova University. Very busy for a Saturday afternoon. But we were seated relatively promptly and had a lovely meal. I’m a fan of the truffle fries but they weren’t as crispy as usual. Considering the crowd, though, it was all great and my friend was pleased.

    Food was great, as always. We had indoor reservations (made them almost 2 months prior), but they sat us outdoors. It was way too cold to not have heaters. It was uncomfortably cold.

    The food, while not great, was good but expensive. The service was very slow. (I understand there is a shortage of wait staff everywhere). I might dine here again on a nice, sunny day outdoors to avoid the high noise level inside.

    Others in the room were very loud and obnoxious. When we asked for a doggie bag, we did receive a container but not a bag to carry it in. The service was, as always, wonderful.

    Great menu and venue but execution = POOR! Took 10 mins to seat us (despite plenty of open tables), they ran out of Diet Coke? Not sure how. Our reservation was at 1 but apparently all specials were consumed that day (that’s the first thing the waiter said to us). Forgot our appetizer, took an hour to get us our meal but it came out cold, no one checked on us. Very sour experience. We would have liked the food if it came out warm but that was too much to ask!!

    A terrible experience from the very beginning upon greeting. Incredibly slow service. Took forever to get a beverage. Placed an order and have it delivered within five minutes prior to receiving an appetizer. Just one bad experience after another throughout the evening and will never go back.

    Unfortunately, I think the labor shortage has hit the White Dog, we had an unusually long wait every step of the way - and the restaurant wasn’t that full. At the end, our waiter plopped the check on our table without asking if we wanted dessert/coffee- just turned and walked away. The food was fine, though.

    We had a lovely brunch on Labor Day. Our meal felt very relaxed. Even the non-dog lovers among our group loved the decor. And our server, Greg, did an excellent job, especially with substitutions. We would love to see more vegetarian options on the menu. Maybe a veggie frittata? Seasonal quiche? Menu seems very meat heavy to non-meat eaters.

    The restaurant was very nice aesthetically. However, the food was horrible! I ordered lamb and my fiancé ordered meatloaf. We were both disappointed. There were mice (more than one) running around the patio. Our server was nice, and polite. I know it wasn’t his fault. Overall, the place was nice, I wish I would’ve ordered something different and not sat outside.

    We were there on a Friday night. At 7:15pm one of the menu items was not available…or there was a 20 minute delay to cook noodles? They were out of their special of the night…the pork chop…they did not have any citrus vodka at all…they were out…and finally undercooked my burger and It had to go back while my wife sat there with her dinner in front of her waiting for it to be re-delivered to me. I think the spot is great and the service was good but the execution of the food was subpar.

    This is one of our favorites overall. Service is very good . The food is also, and if there is an issue, they are quick to address it. I really enjoyed the mussels that are now on the menu ( did not recall them before), and the gazpacho. And the Hawaiian rolls are a must. I was glad to see Ed, one of the best managers ever , there that night, but all the staff are pleasant and professional. Parking is easy also. And the price point is good, too.
