As always, the food was fantastic. The service was very slow at this time (10pm on a Monday), however.
First time visiting Little Donkey. We had heard great things about it. Everything was very good. Casual atmosphere, busy night. Drinks were on the smaller side. Wine selection was limited. Prices were reasonable. Food was generally creative and very flavorful with something for everyone. I think this is a great place for locals looking for a cut above fast casual yet not upscale or stuffy. Our waitress was warm, friendly and attentive.
Excellent, as usual. It's our go to spot for bringing out of town friends, because it always impresses! They are also extremely sensitive about food allergies, which we appreciate. Delish!
I prefer earlier in the evening before it becomes quite so noisy.
Cocktails were amazing and the food was delicious. We had 5 share plates between us which was perfect.
Last night was our Anniversary, so we went to Little Donkey. We had a ten minute wait and the hostess gave us champagne. Nice touch. Once we sat down, George our amazing waiter explained the menu. We started with oysters and shrimp.Both were great. The BLT lettuce wraps with lamb bacon, pimento cheese, and pickled red onion. Omg is all I can say. Next was the burrata, with a pistachio and a green garlic sauce on grilled bread. The flavors took over and made you dance. This was followed by a grilled octopus with a charred onion vinaigrette on roasted potatoes. This was perfection. The octopus was cooked perfectly with soft flesh that melted in your mouth. The last dish was a pickled brined chicken sandwich with green papaya slaw, jalapeño avocado ranch dressing. Amazing meal finished off with cheesecake. Overall this place is amazing. Great bottle of wine also. 42 years of marriage and this was special
Way too loud. Food is good, but not enough of it. Difficult to share when the portions are so small.
Delicious food! A tad pricey on the food and drinks, however don’t let tapas fool you- they are very filling dishes.
Everything was perfect! The food was outstanding. The service was 5 star! We both had an all Thai’d up drink that was delicious.
Service was amazing. Food was even better. A little pricey for tapas, but food was worth it! Will go back many times!!
Interesting menu items and every one is delicious (we had 7 dishes)!! Good wine pairings. Excellent and knowledgeable staff. Highly recommend this (as well as Toro!).
Pricey but about right for the quality of the cooking.
Everything we had was well prepared and tasteful. Would recommend to anyone visiting Boston!
This was the first time I went to Little Donkey with a picky eater, but we were still able to find a few options to share that weren’t too spicy or exotic, so it was another great meal and I got to have the whole plate of tuna poke to myself!
Waitstaff was great in making recommendations for both wine and small plates. Truly a great food experience and just the right amount with 4 small plates for 2 including cucumber salad, long green bean, ravioli and waffles w/crab. Great atmosphere for samplings; can’t wait to go back for more!
On point as always
Everything at this restaurant tastes so good! Cocktails are solid too. You get what you pay for.
Little donkey was excellent! Very friendly staff, excellent food, and good service. Would especially recommend the crudo and hummus. The cookie dough dessert was good too. 10/10!
Brunch at Little Donkey is always fantastic. The menu is fun and inventive and the execution is great.
Shout out to the tall hostess on Pride Saturday who helped my party by pushing back the reservation and still accommodating us when my sister and I arrived early after all! (Sorry I forgot your name!) The portions were good, not too much yet not too little. The Turkish brunch pizza special was so good and breakfast pizza will now be the new quiche in my life.
The food was excellent. Service was a mix of patronizing (waitress) and surly (bar staff)
Great as always
All was great! The food for Dinner was Exceptional! Service: Friendly and spot on! Don't miss The Wok Fried Long Beans! Everything was perfect....except when I picked up my fork and knife. The "silver ware" could have been from a kids summer camp cafeteria, or from the dollar store. It bent when I used it. Not a deal breaker, but I was surprised since everything else was so good!
Excellent amazingly unusual foods. Great sharing tapas. Welcoming attentive and accomadating staff. A little loud for my old ears. But would not stop me from return visit. Fun experience.
Nice place. Not very much available for vegetarians but I enjoyed what I had, burrata/salad and hummus with warm bread. Good cocktails.
This was a Brunch on a Sunday. Food was good, service was good.
The reservation was scheduled for 2:45 just prior to closing the brunch and an hour before opening the dinner service. I would suggest that someone not book at this time, everything seemed rushed as employees were trying to wrap up for the next service.
This is my fourth time at Little Donkey and it never disappoints! Service is always great and food is out of this world.
The Wok cooked green beans were outstanding. Other than that the food was just good, not great. The risotto was terrible.
Great food but too loud to have a conversation
Great place to meet friends for dinner!
The bartenders are great and the interior is sleek but that’s about it. I told the busboy I wasn’t finished and he took the half finished plates away Anyway. One minute later another woman came by to clear the plates. Isn’t there a floor manager? Food is nothing special compared to sinners and saints or Barcelona or lots of other tapas places. Small portions without much imagination in flavors or presentation.
Best food I’ve ever eaten in my life. HANDS DOWN. Food is savory and well crafted. Fire playlist. On point staff. Exquisite ambiance.
Ate lunch there. Multiple appealing choices. The service was friendly and efficicient and the food was exceptionally tasty creative twists on common offerings.
Amazing dinner. Nothing by good things to say. Couldn't possibly recommend it higher.
Of the four dishes I shared, three were outstanding. I loved the sea bass, the scallops and the beef tartare. I don’t remember the name of the fourth. It was under Salads. It certainly wasn’t a salad and reminded me of Fluff. It was not that good either visually or taste-wise.
The chocolate and peanut butter dessert was unpleasant for me because I do not enjoy the “spiciness” that characterizes it.
Overall the experience was good. However I am an octogenarian and the noise level was too much for me. Would I go again? Yes, definitely for the food but NO for the overall experience.
Great food! Tooloud
Outstanding food, stimulating to the palate
This place is the best! So many good tapas options. Amazing drink menu
