--2.5 stars-- Food Quality: 3 stars Food Quantity: 2 stars Service: 3 stars Price: 2 stars Came here for Sunday brunch, and ordered the pomegranate buttermilk pancakes and the country fried steak and orange juice. Wasn't too impressed with either entree, but the (fresh-squeezed) juice was pretty good. The first entree came with 4 pancakes the size of saucer plates. I prefer my pancakes on the fluffy side, but these were dense ad mushy-tasting. Pomegranate seeds in and on the pancakes were a nice touch. However the pomegranate molasses that was described on the menu was sparsely smeared on the plate and didn't add anything to the dish. The country fried steak was somewhat of a disappointment. There were two small pieces of steak, both extremely tough and flavorless. There was barely enough gravy on the bottom of the plate for even one piece of steak. The only thing that saved the dish a bit was the sweet potato hash. Service was standard. Took the waitress awhile to get us the check though. Overall, food was mediocre and overpriced. The bill came out to be over $50 with tax and tip ($12 for two skinny glasses of OJ??). Won't be back again.

Man, if I could afford to eat here all the time, I would. That burger... OMG. And I love that they have a gluten free bun option. Their fries are amazing, with truffle-flavored oil and the perfect texture. I took it to go and they offered me a glass of water while I sat at the bar. It's expensive, probably because of the organic ingredients and grass-fed meats, but it's totally worth it for an indulgence or if you have the funds.

All I can say is what a waste. Why would you spend so much money designing one of the more beautiful restaurants you will ever see and use some of the best locally grown ingredients, only to skimp on service. We waited for our table despite a reservation, and had a waiter who looked to be about 15 who really had no business working in a restaurant of this caliber. The food was good, but not as great as I would hope. Believe it or not, the cheeseburger was the best thing I ate. For $17 it better be. Note to the owners of this restaurant: since you opened the Wayne location the feedback has been decidedly negative about service. Do you really think you can survive on good atmosphere and average food and forgo service? Make the same investment in training your wait staff as you did on designing the decor of your restaurant or you won't be around long.

I am seldom disappointed by a meal out but I found it overrated and overpriced. The portions were tiny, as if to give the impression that the food is exquisite, when it's not. Decent flavors, but nothing interesting or unique. And a big tab. I am convinced that most of the positive ratings here are placed by White Dog mgmt.

Fresh organic ingredients cooked to perfection and very well presented so you get the full experience of a well prepared dish. We had a great time, tried e local micro-brewed beers and enjoyed the attention of our wonderful waiter Ryan. Highly recommended place. We will absolutely come back.

I've been coming to the White Dog Cafe for many years now. As a bar, it is a great place to drink a cold one. As a restaurant, it is good overall although your mileage may vary. I've seen it being superb some years, not so much others, and last time I
