Overpriced

Can't say I didn't enjoy the food and presentation but it definitely is overpriced. Staff is pleasant. I would not recommend the Bloody Mary but mushroom soup and pea bisque were very good. Still overpriced but good. Most of our party liked a place one block over, called Avenue Eatz, better. We had... read more

We have eaten at this restaurant several times when we come to Villanova to visit our daughter from California. We even had her graduation party there, a party of 13. I have never been disappointed. The decor is adorable. The food and drinks are wonderful AND coming from California I think everything is reasonably priced. The wait staff is very... More

I've eaten here several times and the food is generally quite good. Expensive but good. We started going to Happy Hour and that is always lively and much more reasonable and you are able to sample smaller plates. They use mostly locally sourced natural foods.

Had a wonderful experience this past Sunday at the White Dog Cafe in Wayne, Pa. following my daughter's graduation. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. I had the yellow fin tuna special which was delicious. If you have the opportunity, try to get a side order of their "Tater Tots" which are quite unusual and very tasty.... More

Great ambiance; a little pricey. Food was very good and the staff was attentive but not overbearing. We would return again.

This is an elegant place for lunch. The mushroom soup was delicious. Salads were generous in size, and the sandwiches were large and very good as well.

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

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 friends, and were seated without any... More
