    weird rules/policies, or Why my table wasnt allowed to order Barrata

    Hello, Last night I had a wonderful meal (tuna tartar, duck, root beer float) and great service at White Dog. Here's why I'll never be back. I arrived with a group of 6 family members - we go a few times a year because it's convenient to 30th street station when my in-laws come to town. We were given menus - 4 of us were ordering priced fix. 2 were not. O wait, actually 0 are, because despite nothing noted on the menu, the new policy is that the priced fix meal must be ordered by the whole table, our server informed us kindly. We offered to be put on 2 checks. The manager came out and told us it was the chef's rule, "for our own good and the good of our experience" because it would be so hard for us to when to eat what if some people didn't have food in front of them. Stupid, but tolerable. And the priced fix options had $ next to them, so since they could be purchased a la carte, we got over it. And THEN we were told we couldn't have a LA carte from that special menu - even though the menu said "items available a LA carte" on the menu, because that's only available for groups smaller then 4. So my mother in law couldn't have the burrata. My sister in law couldn't have the scallops. What are you even thinking, White Dog? My table had ordered 2 bottles of wine, we were frequent visitors... I'm going to make it my job to tell everyone I know about my bad experience. Enough with the silly rules and stodginess from the lil cafe that use to be about quality in farm to table.

    Great food, Overpriced.

    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!

    Good Food

    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.

    Not so good...

    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.

    Overrated

    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.

    In a slow decline...

    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!
