we had a party of 6 and everyone really enjoyed their meals. The dishes are creative and tasty. The service is attentive and friendly. We sat on the outdoor patio which is very nice and quite comfortable.

My friend and I have celebrated our joint birthdays every year for 8 years at White Dog. Last night, we agreed to move on. The prices are higher; the inclusions are smaller (ie: bread is now $8!); the complementary aperitifs (a standard) are gone; and the service was at best, meh.

We sat i outside right by the front door and had a splendid time on a warm evening. Cucumber gazpacho, a thick pork chop over mashed potatoes and gravy, grilled asparagus, a local Pilsner, and a brownie with ice cream were a nice summer meal for two.

The White Dog Cafe was great! Sitting outside was nice but if it’s your first time, I recommend sitting inside so you can take in all of the decor. Dog themed but not it a kitschy way. Food and drinks were great too! Avocado BLT and sangria both 10/10!

We were seated right away - such a great vibe in the outdoor seating area! A bit of a delay on our drink order, but the food came out quick and was so delicious! Can't wait to go back!

We have dined here in the past & while I usually order Lamb Bolognese, I decided to try the blackened salmon & my husband ordered the halibut. Both were delicious but very small portions. We did not order appetizers because we thought the portions would be larger. Bread is $8.00 which is ridiculous, so we couldn't fill up on that. A Dewars & water in a tall glass was $9.00, so we ordered another in a short glass which ended up being $11.00. Same shot of scotch but less water. REALLY???

I really like the Cafe, the service is amazing but the acoustics are tough when the restaurant is busy, it's loud and hard to have conversation. I keep coming back because the food is really good and the service is outstanding even if a bit pricey for the portion sizes.

I have dined at the Wayne and Glenn Mills locations and I found the Glenn Mills food to be much better. The service was very good at both locations but the Glenn Mills was a notch above in their specials and presentation. Always a fan but will go to Glenn Mills next time.

Our waiter, Elizabeth was wonderful. We sat outside on the patio by the parking lot, and it was pretty quiet and food came quickly. We also left a bag at the restaurant & even though we left late they still called us to let us know they had it. Food was good as it always is at White Dog. My dad loved the art.

The ambiance is great you have the option to eat inside or outside. They immediately greet you and the staff is very friendly. My waiter was great and very pleasant offering suggestions if I needed them. Started with the raspberry coffee cake. Drinking a moctail Puppy and a Mojito. Meal was portobello mushrooms sandwich on a brioche bun with japanese mayo and cheese (don't remember the type). Also Farmers plate with eggs over easy however, they weren't over easy they were over hard. They corrected it a d it was very tasty. Ended with a peach cream puff to die for and coffee.

Surprised about some hiccups with the food — tasteless eggs, an avacado BLT that lacked avacado — but service was good

Horrible beet salad!! They just opened a can of beets, cut them in squares, added some goat cheese, and bland dressing. Croutons were dry! How about roasted beets with an interesting dressing!?!

Once again The White Dog Cafe in Wayne did not disappoint. Tonight we went for our 10 year old’s birthday. The service was excellent and the food was superb. This is the place to go for a wonderful experience.

The small wooden tables are very uncomfortable. The people sitting next to the wall have little room to move. The position of the legs makes it difficult to move your legs during the meal. The soup was delivered with a spoon and the wobbly table took several requests before it was stabilized

Met friends here for brunch on Sunday. There was something on the menu for everyone and some great sharing plates. We had the cheese plate, coffee cake, heirloom tomato salad, burger, omelette, falaffel, fries, and the luscious creme brulee to share at the end. Coffee was excellent, as was the Bloody Mary. Our server, Stephanie, was amazing - attentive, helped with suggestions when we asked, and came back at appropriate intervals to make sure our beverages were refreshed as needed. Everyone we interacted with (checking in, etc) was courteous. The restaurant was busy, but the room was set up beautifully so it never felt crowded. They also had nice outdoor seating and plenty of parking. Will go there again.
