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

When my daughter told me this restaurant was decorated in dog related themes, I was skeptical. I was SO pleasantly surprised. The decorations were adorable, yet very classy, and the food was fabulous. Loved all the local selections. We ate outside and it was just beautiful. Loved everything about this restaurant so we're going back this weekend with the whole... More

Eclectic mix of food stuffs and an attentive waitstaff makes for a very enjoyable meal. Nice portions and extremely fresh ingredients. Every meal I have had here has been delicious. If you are on a budget, check the prices before you arrive to avoid sticker shock.

I think White Dog is hands down the best restaurant on the mainline. Tremendous brunch, great happy hour and top notch service from the moment you walk in. We go a couple times/month and have never had a bad experience.

Not knowing the area, we relied on reviews to pick this restaurant. The atmosphere is quirky and there are a few different rooms with different decor. Food was very fresh and inventive and cocktails were great. It's in an unassuming place - a little outdoor strip mall/offices, almost didn't see it. We recommended it to many others in our group.

Service, food, ambience was outstanding. Our waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable. The food could not have been any better. Mushroom soup is a must have.
