This place came highly recommended by a friend but we were underwhelmed inside ring the high prices. The earliest reservation we could get was at 8:30 and they sat us closer to 9:00. The server was great, she knew a lot about each item on the menu. The food was good. Not out of this world delicious as the prices... More

Excellent bar, wonderful food and a lovely atmosphere. Staff are friendly and the food changes with the seasons. Half price wine on Monday's is a real bonus! Really worth a visit if in Wayne .

Our server was very pleasant and attentive. She recommended a lovely wine. The food was good; a little pricy. There was very little light in the room where we were seated. We had to use our cell phones to read the menu. A gentleman approached us as we were paying the bill. He and his wife had requested the table... More

Arrived for brunch (had a reservation), the restaurant was packed but we were promptly seated. Great menu and delicious breakfast breads. Great atmosphere, our waiter struggled a little bit, but being so busy it was understandable. You can't go wrong.

I have 2 young children. They often dine out and they are well behaved. I have a major bone with restaurants that take this as a license to stash me in a corner. The White Dog managed to not only do that, they added the cake topper of a new waitress not quite familiar enough with the restaurant and it's... More

This is a charming restaurant with an excellent menu. the decor is elegant - yet "dog" cute! I recently was here for a wedding shower in a very beautifully decorated private room in the rear of the restaurant. The service was terrific. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a private party as well as going to the White Dog... More

We all loved the atmosphere and decor of White Dog. Very charming. The service was very good. I was disappointed in the food. I had expected to be wowed, but wasn't. I had the winter Bellini, which was good, but I really couldn't taste the blood orange. I had the omelette of the day, which was large, but frankly didn't... More

I enjoyed meeting someone new for a dinner, and was looking forward to a lovely conversation. The place was well-attended on a Thursday night. Glad I made a reservation. We dined in the back room, which had a lovely decor, as does the whole restaurant. Staff was great. We had the Sea Bass special, which was also excellent. Total cost... More

My wife and I chose the White Dog Cafe for an early New Years Eve dinner and were not disappointed. Relaxed atmosphere, great service and tasty food were our rewards. We started with the pear salad and steak tartar - both light, fresh and excellent. My wife's short ribs were juicy and tender and my crab cake entree was filled... More

While, a bit pricey it's worth the visit. Especially when the weather cooperates and you can sit on the patio for your meal!
