Look foward to a meal at this cool funky cafe wheneve I am in the area. Great eclectic choices of fresh and locally grown foods. Small plates and big meals as well. Great staff, fun decor. The only down side is that it is not a secret, which means of course it is often crowded, usually with parents taking their... More

I have been a fan of the Lost Dog for years!! They had one in Ithaca too and loved that, but it closed. :( Anyway, lucky they have the "Bingo" one and that is just as great!! The food is fresh, healthy and funky gourmet, even if it's a sandwich. They have a nice selection of beer and wine and... More

This was the perfect place to hang out and eat healthful food and enjoy a glass of red after a long day's drive from Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. Fabulous staff, good chefs, and just the right funky vibe and appearance. I have a couple of dietary restrictions and they cheerfully helped me, delivering a lovely spiced soba noodle soup with edamame,... More

Before there was the downtown restaurant boom in Binghamton, there was the Lost Dog. Go for the good, reasonably priced food or to enjoy music in the lounge. But if you are visiting Binghamton, don't miss the Dog.

We were a group of 7 and I must have ordered one of the more boring sandwiches on the menu: grilled chicken and swiss. It was bland, the tomato far from ripe (I know, it's December) and the bread too doughy. However, my partner ordered the quinoa burger and it was DELICIOUS. I would order that in a nanosecond next...

We were just expecting to eat fast food the one night we were stopping over in Binghamton, but we logged into our trusty Tripadvisor ap, and it told us Lost Dog was #1. It deserves it. It is a quirky, unique place, and we loved the food. Favorites: Wagyu Cheesesteak sandwich, asparagus cakes (weird, but good) and the mac and... More

My cousin brought me here after I had been diagnosed with a gluten intolerance. This was the first place that had awesome gluten free pasta, along with some other tastey choices. I chose to try their Amore', roasted red peppers, spinach, artichoke, and penne in an Asiago cream sauce! I was in heaven! The atmosphere of the restaurant is eclectic,... More

Binghamton reminds me a bit of Baltimore, it's a bit older, a bit gritty and therefore has even a stronger and authentic contemporary character. This restaurant is a perfect reflection of place. The staff were kind, helpful and authentic. The decor is smile inducing...how often are you directed to the loo with "take a left at the blue octopus"? The... More

My daughter had the penne ala vodka and I had the quinoa wrap with Mac and cheese. Both meals were out of this world. Service was great and the decor of this place is really trendy and nice.

I absolutely love this restaurant! This restaurant can satisfy whatever mood you're in. The food is always good and the bar is amazing. I am always eager to try their new dishes because I know they're always going to be good.
