This place seems to be crowded for a reason - it is popular with students, provide good food, reasonable quality and quantity, fast and reliable service. There is also a nice bar with a small area to sit down and gulp some beer and wine if you wish to enjoy your evening with drinks. They need to include more items... More

My wife and I stopped for lunch at The Lost Dog Cafe during a recent trip to Binghamton and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It's a fun place, full of interesting artwork and artifacts, and the food choices (for lunch) were unusual and excellent. I enjoyed the carrot soup (which was a lot like pumpkin), but the cranberry sauce on my... More

It is seriously the best dish there. I don't go often but when I do it never disappoints. Fun environment, good food, reasonable prices.

A NYC Greenwich village feel in upstate NY. Staff was very friendly. Service was fast. Menu, both food and drink, is eclectic and healthy. My black bean, broccoli, spinach, brown rice and shrimp was very good.

We just loved this place! 3 of us ate and all 3 were wonderfully satisfied with our meals. I am gluten free and had their vodka tomato sauce GF pasta and it was spectacular! We all did the lunch special ($12 and you pick a soup/salad, main and dessert) and it was a great value. Loved the vibe here too.

The Lost Dog is a very pleasant place to eat. I went with friends for lunch and the food was delicious! The waitstaff was very friendly and we were served fresh food in a very short time. Definitely a great place to go!

This is what I would call a "hipster" restaurant--you will find a cross-section of all of the cool kids here. There is wide variety of healthy menu choices and prompt, courteous service. The decor is eclectic and the restaurant is very clean as well. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the acoustics--between the loud music and... More

Waiter was friendly & fast. Got fried calamari app that was excellent - fried just right with a super-delicious marinara sauce for dipping. Grilled chicken sand on french bread was also cooked just right. Side salad with some kind of chili vinaigrette dressing made it delicious. Pasta dish was like a light Alfredo with shrimp and penne. PAsta & sauce... More
