Late Saturday Dinner Date

White Dog was a great choice for our dinner date. We arrived about 8pm and were seated about 30 minutes later. The bar was very busy so we were not able to order a drink while waiting. Our waiter Jason was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were seated in the corner by the glass vestibule... read more

How this restaurant is rated so highly amazes me. I find the food lacking in quality and presentation. My latest and last trip to this overpriced restaurant convinced to never return. I ordered a burger which was priced at $18.00 requesting it to be prepared medium rare.. My wife a chicken sandwich which she thought was good. My burger arrived... More

We stopped for lunch at the Cafe, the crowd is very mixed. Business people to families. The rooms are all decorated in dog paintings and picture themes. All are very enjoyable to look at. The service was good as was the food. Fresh and well prepared.

Great atmosphere and outstanding food. Service was pleasant, efficient and attentive. We were lucky enough to eat outside on a beautiful early summer evening. Hummus appetizer was amazing - especially the roasted beet and red pepper. Parmesan truffle fries - could have had just these for dinner they were so good. Scallops, halibut and rib eye entrees were fresh, flavorful... More

White Dog on Sansom St. has been a favorite of mine for many years, and I was happy when a friend mentioned the Main Line location. I've been there for lunch twice on trips back east, and I'd be happy to eat there any time I am in the area. We usually get a number of small plates and I've... More

After a few people telling us how good this restaurant is, we decided to give it a try on Saturday for lunch as a treat as we new it was more expensive than places we normally go. The atmosphere is unique and quaint and the service was decent. I was excited to try the cheese plate as cheese is my... More

The walls and ceiling are paneled in dark wood, which are adorned with many paintings of dogs, and canine decore is everywhere, with other spaces filled in by copious books and empty wine bottles. Four of us for Saturday brunch and the place was busy. I had the tuna tartare (sensational), while the other had the mushroom soup (

My visit was for a memorial service, with small snacks, drinks, servers. We had a number of handicapped guests. Servers were most attentive, food delicious. Large spaces in door and outdoors. Great parking areas with wide ram for access. I will visit again for a dinner.

Nice restaurant for families and couples alike. Sitting on the veranda on a summers eve is a relaxing place to be even in the heart of Wayne alongside the route 30. Would recommend.
