My friend and I meet for lunch twice a month in the area- White Dog cafe in Wayne was an excellent choice! She ordered the special soup of the day - Ham and Bean - she loved it- I had their delicious mushroom soup - we each had two glasses of Prosecco ! Service was exceptional - Always a wonderful experience at any White Dog restaurant!

Great atmosphere and service, we enjoyed lamb bolognese pasta and Brussel sprout appetizer. The sea bass fish main dish was delicious, but thought the fish was slightly overcooked. Also there was a special on menu for a Caesar salad that was very well prepared and very tasty!

Our group of four had an early 4pm dinner on a Sunday, requesting and sitting at a very quiet indoor table without neighboring diners for most of the meal, which made us feel covid-safe. Service was excellent, all staff wearing masks. We had ample time for conversation and to enjoy the great food - sea bass, bolognese, burger - all perfectly prepared. There was an option for heat-lamp-warmed outdoor tables too. All great - a very enjoyable dinner with friends!

We had a wonderful time celebrating our wedding anniversary! We celebrated our rehearsal dinner at the White Dog Cafe several years ago, and it was so fun to go out there again and remember the wedding weekend. The food was delicious and the cocktails were perfect. The service was wonderful as well, and the restaurant had tasteful holiday decor and lovely music. Thank you for a great evening!

White Dog in Wayne has always been one of my favorite restaurants. The food is fresh and done well and the service is good. It is a charming place.
During COVID, the outdoor area has been great if one does not want to eat inside.
Will continue to dine there.

Food is always wonderful and the ambiance cannot be beat. Service was definitely slow but considering the times and many facilities are short staff it wasn’t a bother for us but if you have a time restriction it’s something to consider

Wine a 5, Butternut Soup a 5, Pork Chop a 1, Mashed Potatoes a 1 (Should have sent back the chop and starch. Didn't want to wait and go through the whole thing.) Wife and kid had sub-par pot roasts. Server had no personality.
Not the first but the last mediocre experience at White Dog for this threesome. There are just too many better places in the western suburbs to spend $200.

Service was excellent. A tad too hot in restaurant temperature wise. Prime rib was a bit thin for the $65 price tab. Overall a nice Christmas evening.

Amazing and amazing atmosphere. We had a great Christmas Eve dinner there and everything was excellent. Love the sophisticated yet lighthearted theme and decor. I'm a dog lover, so maybe a bit biased, but loved it nonetheless. Good wine selection, very fresh oysters and seafood selections. Will definitely return!!
