The "dog" theme is neat, and unique..The food is locally sourced and the quality is excellent. We went on the spur of the moment with... read more

My daughter and I went for lunch to celebrate the end of her first college year. We found that it's hopping on a Friday, with mostly Women Who Lunch. Our waiter said that other days are frequented by business clients. They provide free valet parking for lunch Mondays-Fridays. Our waiter, Christian, was very patient with another patron's complaint about the... More

My wife & I went last night for my birthday & it was our first time. We had 6:30pm reservations & only had to wait about 10 minutes for our table. The place was mobbed as we did not know it was Restaurant Week. We selected the 5 course dinner for each of us. The food & service were very... More

We had dinner here on a Saturday evening and really enjoyed ourselves. I had the filet and my husband had salmon - each prepared as requested. The entire menu is farm to table, locally sourced - even the wine list is completely North American. I had my first glass of California Malbec, and it was amazing. We are dog lovers... More

We had on a crowdly saturday-evening a nice tasteful dinner. Try the trio of humus. The suggestion of the Day : steak tartare was delicious! Our choice of salads was the top - a lot of flavor, light and nice presented. Good & friendly staff. One point : tables very close together and very noisy atmosphere. Good for friend dinner... More

White Dog is a special dining event for my family. Everything about this restaurant is great! The decor is unique, warm without being pretentious and obviously themed to dogs. The meals and ingredients are sourced locally and seasonally. Our server was very familiar with the dishes and drinks (wine or craft beer) to be paired with our meal. Although not... More

We got a gift card for Christmas for $75 (good thing) and decided to try this restaurant. Menu has a lot of good things to chose from. We started with the grilled artichokes which were excellent. I went with the filet ($38) which melted in your mouth and I added a side of Kennett Square mushrooms. Husband had the salmon... More

The decor is delightfully dog inspired with clever re-use of items. The food is good, but you need a chef's dictionary to decipher the menu. I would not consider myself a foodie, but I have cooked for years and every time I go there are things I need to look up that end up being fancy/obscure words for a simple... More

Went with a friend New Year's Eve and one of the best dining experiences I have had. Food was incredible-from the presentation to the taste. Our waiter was attentive although not overbearing. We enjoyed it so much, we have been back several times since our initial visit! Two reasons I am not giving it 5 stars. Very loud and noisy... More
