White Dog is a romantic restaurant. We had a cozy table outside. It was a beautiful night. The wine was flowing. The food was fresh and imaginative. The waiter was cool. Just a great place to bring that special someone in your life.

For years I had been going to White Dog near University of Penn. campus and was thrilled that White Dog was coming to Wayne. Somehow, it has lost is's allure and the food is just ok. Except for the mushroom soup which is still amazing.

We went for the Happy Hour menu and drinks mid-week. The was crowded by 6:00 p.m., come early. They have a great selection of small plates and appetizers that you don't see elsewhere. The burgers are especially good, maybe the best around.

Hello. We do not have a printed children's menu but offer several kid friendly items from our regular menu. We do recommend reservations on the weekends as we can get very busy.
