Went there with my fiancée after hearing great things about it. We both had fantastic dishes... He had the special pasta dish and I had the tuna- which we would recommend to anyone- and certainly get again. We had a glass of house wine each and shared a dessert and each had a cup of coffee, and it was over $100 with tip. We sat at the smallest table in the world, and even the food runner commented on the size of it.. But that didn't take away from the food.. I would definitely go again... but maybe for lunch instead of dinner.

Good lord was this place overpriced. I got the Chicago-style hot dog ($7.50) "The Pit Bull" and a side of french fries ($4.00!). Geeze... I know a really good hotdog stand on Temple's University's campus where they charge 50 cents!

The White Dog Cafe has good food but I think its a little pricey. Plus I could do without all the political stuff. Its a little too left wing. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a republican but the owner always is criticizing the republican party and how they're only out for money but during the republican convention 10 years ago she catered parties for the republicans in her restaurant and she took their money.

For years I enjoyed going to the bar & gill section for a late dinner or drinks with friends. Ever since the menu has changed there has been less variety for vegetarians, higher prices, and smaller portions. No more veggie burger! When I asked if cheese could be melted on my fries (as featured on the old menu), the chef was brought to my table to let me know that despite the fact that they do indeed have cheese, they could not melt it on my fries...that was only on the old menu.

Don't buy into the "socially conscious" slant of this restaurant. The food is over-priced and bland. I've had much fresher, tastier, organic fare elsewhere.

This has been my favorite restaurant for many years, but it seems to be suffering a slow decline. The food quality is still good, though the portion size is shrinking. The dining room is so loud I can tell you more about the people around me than the person I dined with, and best of all, both we and the diners around us complained loudly when it was discovered we were seated next to an alley where people go outside the smoke. It was like dining in a bar, pre-Philly smoking ban!

I have been to this place twice - once for lunch by the bar and once for an anniversary in the dining room. The atmosphere was nice except for a noisy table nearby. I found that the lunch menu is less of a value. But the dinner was fantastic and worth the money. I recommend the soft shell crab and the lamb with the heirloom stew. Not somewhere I would go regularly.
