Our server Matthew was awesome. Really seemed like a genuinely nice man, was attentive but not to the point where it was annoying. Keep him around! Food was great as always. Brought my friend here for her birthday and it was her first time, she enjoyed the ambiance and the food. Our table could’ve been better, it wasn’t quite private enough for my liking and when we asked to move to the cute cozy table we were told it was reserved but I don’t see how to reserve that specific table on open table. I have been to White Dog many times and will be back!

Food is always fantastic! Ahi was especially delicious. Service is over the top, provided by Alley, Attila & Jon from the front desk.

Restaurant was full on a Sunday evening. We had a reservation for 4 people at 6:30 and called to say we would be late. Arrived at 7 pm and were seated at a small oval table that is more suitable for 2 people. Server was very nice but everything took a lot of time. Food was delicious.

Dinner was delicious. There were 4 of us. Two of us had the mushroom soup which is always a winner. My husband had the tuna which he loved. We also shared a special appetizer of a duct confit croquette which was very tasty.
Three of us had the beef stew over noodles for dinner. The seasonings and flavor were right on and the meat was very tender. My husband had the lamb shank which was also right on. Delicious and tender.
The wines suggested by our waiter were well thought to match our food. The service was also great. He did not rush us and was very knowledgeable.

We always enjoy ourselves at the White Dog Cafe, in Havaerford, Wayne or Center City. The food is scrumptious, the service is attentive but not overbearing, and the atmosphere is terrific—particularly if you’re a dog lover like we are. I highly recommend this restaurant.
