Ate here last week and had a great lunch. Portions were huge and service was really good. Started with the soup of the day and it was a bowl of chicken with veggies and very fresh. Then we had a smoked turkey sandwich and a turkey club wrap. I asked for a small salad instead of fries and they brought me a main course size side salad and no charge. I will go back.

The only breakfast place in Manhattan I've been to that has HASH BROWNS, yes real authentic hash browns, not cottage potatoes, home fries or whatever spin off of the classic breakfast favorite. Standard fare belgian waffles/french toast/egg dishes are levels above local diners. Oatmeal is incredible for those who are fans. I can see those used to fast food breakfasts complaining, but if you're a breakfast/brunch fan this is definitely the place to go. It can get busy for brunch on weekends fyi.

I use to live just a few blocks away and went to Barking Dog back in the day when there were 2 movie theaters next door! OK, yes, this was 10 or so years ago, when they just opened. Anyway, I liked this place because it was set back from busy 34th Street, and it had outdoor seating. I was alway impressed by the food - coffee shop/diner/pub but better - and the nice outdoor space in which to eat. Salads were superior, and no matter what you got - a simple burger, a special (fish, steak, chicken, pasta) it was well prepared and generous. Then flash forward - I moved north to the lower East 40s and have not tried the menu in a while (OK, years). I order the crab cake and the Shepard's Pie - remembering from years before. The person on the phone asks for my #, realizes I am not in their database, and transfers me to another host who is brief, and a little rude. I take note abd place the order. The food arrives. There is no crab cake, and I notice this because the bill is low. I am irritated. He even repeated it back to me. I try the Shepard's Pie. It's delicious. Just the thing for a cold night. The Shepard's Pie has garlicky beef, carrot, peas, and delicious mashed potatoes. It comes with a side of corn (frozen kernel style, but fine in this type of dinner entree - you can blend with the pie and enjoy in a hearty way), and sauteed broccolli. I never called to kvetch about the missing appetizer, and I question service, but I maintain to this day they have great pub/diner food. Check them out -= preferably in person to avoid a missing item!

After reading couple of reviews and hearing from other sources about this place i decided to give it a go. Rather than ordering out i decided to stop by for lunch. I have ordered an apple, pear and avocado salad. While salad was relatively fresh, it came only with one slice (and i am not kidding one slice) of pear but with abundance of apples and avocados. Pear, is an incredient that actually makes and holds that salad together and after pointing that out to my waiter, he quickly brought up more slices. As for my main i have ordered blackened catfish that was suppose to come with an order of yukon potatos. At least that what was stated on special menu. Incredibly that dish was served to me with more salad ????....Who would in a right state of mind bring a main dish with more salad especially if i have ordered it separetely. Not in a mood to complain again i have finished my meal, paid my bill and left. Overall food was not not terrible (my fish was actually really good). The problem was with unability of either a waiter staff or a cook to pay attention to their own specials as well as the lack of mentioned ingredients in the food prepared. I guess they have their on and off days but my experience will not want me to come back to this location again.

After several people (chronic eat-outers as opposed to me, a home-cooker) recommended the Barking Dog for delivery and checking out the seemingly yummy menu, I decided to give it a go. Unfortunately, my meal was a disappointment. Delivery took more than twice as long as it was supposed to (1 hr to the estimated 25 min). In NYC, the wait times are often a bit longer, but that was rough. Then, the meal. The green salad did, admittedly, have decently fresh, non--iceberg ingredients, but it was bitter and unwashed-tasting. The dressing was not good, some kind of really watered down, bland ranch. But the salad, unfortunately, was gourmet compared to my entree, the pan seared chicken breast (note: it was actually a leg and thigh, 2 fatty, unchewable dark-meat cuts). Supposedly it comes with a sun-dried tomato & wild mushroom ragu. What I actually received was an again watered-down plain tomato sauce (more of a broth actually) with no more than 2 regular white mushrooms, tops. There were none of the advertised fizzled onions; instead there were 3 practically raw (not even crisp-tender), very small florets of broccoli. The creamy black pepper polenta was gluey and over-peppered (and I tend to go heavy on the fresh pepper). I would not recommend ordering their dinners (The okay salad gives me a feeling there's a slight chance the sandwiches would be marginally better--apparently you can order off the lunch menu for dinner too).
