I grew up in Binghamton and each yearly trip home my family and I stop for lunch and/or dinner. Always a great experience. Although, not this time. I wasn't very hungry, so I ordered the brie appetizer and a caesar side salad. Was informed by the server that I could not get a side salad because I wasn't ordering an... More

I went to SUNY Binghamton for my undergrad, and my former roommate had mentioned Lost Dog when I first started my junior year. She was from an area close by; Elmira; and had been to Lost Dog a bunch of times due to their menu offerings; organic, gluten free, all natural, etc. I myself eat almost all organic and, at... More

It's amazing here! The service is really awesome, and everyone is super cool and friendly! The food is unbeatable and has fantastic vegetarian and vegan options! You can't go wrong with their reggatoni a la vodka, beans and greens or Greek chicken! Everything is so good and portions are huge! I have never been disappointed and my tummy always leaves... More

I was on Binghamton for one night. I saw the top spot lost dog cafe. I gave it a try. Chicken lemongrass appetizer was excellent. Ginger lime salmon was cooked perfectly and my wife had the cognac streak and she thought it was very good. Parking was a little sketchy across the street in a parking structure seeming in disrepair.... More

Appetizers extremely small. Ordered the Penne with Vodka Sauce. tasted like jarred garlic. No bread or salad with expensive pasta?? Never again.

This is a funky little restaurant in the heart of "downtown" Binghamton. It's kind of like Zen meets the 60's meets cool college hang out! The service was good, the food was pretty darn delicious and the price was excellent! Great experience!

Looked to Trip Advisor to find a good place to eat while passing thru. This restaurant came up as #1. I understand we are not in a big city or metropolitan area, but if this restaurant is number one, then this area is in trouble! The staff was upbeat and personable, the decor creative and comfortable, but the food was... More

The Lost Dog Café is one of the oldest cafes in the Downtown Binghamton area; it has withstood the test of time as other businesses have come and gone. Located close to the riverwalk, we loved the exposed brick walls and funky décor. The menu had an assortment of standard sandwiches like clubs, classic burgers, broiled chicken - but all... More
