The decor is full-on, inviting, lively, heartwarming and the food is 99% of the time delicious and beautifully presented. I see a different dog in a painting or photo or other artwork every time I visit. Great atmosphere for a family, friends or a couple.

Colleague and I were in town for a conference. Heard from others about this restaurant. WONDERFUL experience! Farm to Table menu! Waitress very knowledgeable; prompt and efficient service! Had Truffled mushroom flatbread, salmon, crab cakes, and brussels sprouts. No room for dessert, however had heard from others that dessert is fabulous! Great atmosphere. Would definitely visit again when in area!

The White Dog Cafe was recommended and at the last minute during our trip to Philadelphia decided to give it a go. At first a little intimidated by all the high end vehicles in the parking lot and the fact that it is in a Main Line'ish area but we were greeted with open arms - even in our traveler... More

Went for a business lunch and the salmon was pretty dry. The rest of the meal was fine. I should have sent it back but was short on time.

I saw a review and thought we should try this place. From the hostess To Jason our server, they were very nice. The food was good. After appetizers, I think they forgot to bring our sandwiches to us. It was quite a wait, and others that came in were served before us. Nevertheless, I have to give this place a... More

Really thoughtful, delicious food. They're the Farm to Table menu offers so many healthful options. Servers are knowledgeable, helpful and pleasant. Each room has it's own charm, outdoor seating is lovely too. I recommend the charcuterie appetizer - goat cheese was the most flavorful and smooth I've had in a long while. Really can't go wrong with entrée selections. Pear/bread... More

I think that this restaurant is probably wonderful but we sat in the bar for late night dining and it was pretty good. Love the decor and bar area and all the beautifully decorated rooms. Would enjoy coming back.

Whenever I've eaten here (3 times) the staff have been a little off kilter... Not sure why, whether it's us(?) or what but we all remarked on it each time... Very weird. The food is very nice though, but not sure I'll rush back.

We stopped in for a quick dinner and loved it. We arrived just before dinner but were very pleased with the happy hour menu. I had the yellow fin tuna burger which was quite moist and tasty. My wife and son had the turkey and beef burgers both of which were great. The service was attentive and they had a... More
