Looking for a casual place to eat with fresh, healthy, tasty food served with a side of cool by a friendly wait staff? Look no further. Students say it's got the best food in town, and with so many national chains in Binghamton, this place stands out. If you want a bread basket, just ask: tasty warm French bread and... More

While driving to upstate New York we stopped in the Lost Dog Cafe to grab a bite for lunch. It's a bit of a hole-in-the-wall on Water Street in Binghamton, but well worth tracking down. We were quickly greeted and seated even though it was clearly a busy lunch hour. I was a newcomer and my friend had not been... More

Very popular with locals. Extensive menu , also has a bar and music in the evenings. Variety if items on menu from which to choose, and they will specialize and modify your choices to taste. A fun place to go to, often crowded.

We love coming to this restaurant. They have the best all a vodka in town. There menu is always wonderful and they have so many vegan and vegetarian dishes to choose from. I'm not vegetarian but I do enjoy veggies and the healthy alternatives as a choice.

Visited on a couple of occasions. Once was for a night time concert - sound was good, atmosphere was good, parking is a bit ridiculous (being downtown and all). One other time was for dinner - same thing about parking, but everything else was really good (food, atmosphere, staff, etc). Overall it was good at all times.

I love The Lost Dog Cafe.....It is one of the only restaurants in the Southern Tier that prepares delicious gluten free pasta that is cooked to perfection. You have to try their lobster sauce....Fun bar, fun place to drink and eat.

Visited The Lost Dog yesterday for the first time and was very impressed!! Everything from the food to the service was excellent. I had the rigatoni alla vodka, which was to-die-for. I typically do not order pasta when I am out to eat, but had seen several reviews of this restaurant mention it and decided to give it a try.... More
