Great lounge for drinks

This past week we visited the lounge for my wife's birthday. We had several friends in town that have never been to downtown Binghamton. What a treat. I had only been to the front bar a couple of times and had never visited the lounge. The atmosphere is very cool and the staff was accommodating and... read more

Met friends there for lunch. I ordered the parmesan sage crusted chicken sandwich with asparagus and gouda. It was cooked perfectly with a side salad. My date had the chicken muffaletta sandwich with sweet potato fries as a side. Also very good. The Lost Dog also has a full dinner menu, a full service bar and a nice selection of... More

This place is a bit too trendy for my taste, although the service and the food fortunately make up for the vibe and atmosphere. The menu is somewhat eclectic, a hodge-podge of "traditional" dishes/ingredients like crispy calamari with marinara sauce, hummus, caesar salad, NY Strip Steak and dishes/ingredients usually associated with Asian cooking or with the health-conscious crowd such as...

Stopped in for lunch, first visit. Great space, has an active, natural, attractive vibe. Lots of tempting choices, a wide range of creative offerings - was difficult to choose among appealing descriptions of salads, sandwiches, entrees, daily specials. We chose to share grilled veggie spiedies over quinoa and a chicken sandwich with sun-dried tomatoes on baguette. Both generous, fresh and... More

Nice place for Tapas and a cocktail. Restaurant is separate from bar/lounge which was very nice and more upscale than expected.

The cafe is always busy and it has a great atmosphere. Drinks are okay. But food has not been good even once. I tried pasta it was so salty. Tried chicken sandwich. It was too dry to eat. Burgur was served cold and nkt tasty.... so okay place but food, meh.

Stopped for lunch on the way to the Finger Lake region. Not far off the highway. The waitress was very pleasant and helpful. The food was delicious. We would definitely stop again. Highly recommend.

I stopped here with a friend for lunch and was very happy with the menu in the service and the price. There were many vegan and vegetarian items on the menu, making it easy to eat healthy- of course there were other options as well. I would highly recommend the lost dog Café!

We came with a party of six, and everyone of us enjoyed ourselves. The staff was pleasant and attentive, but not bothersome. They also have some outstanding vegan options. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others!
