A fantastic experience at Little Donkey! Our server was top notch, very personable, didn’t make us feel rushed but was also attentive. The food was excellent! We had a delicious bottle of wine, great cocktails.
Great food, great place. Our waiter was absolutely amazing and accommodating. Will definitely be going back!
We ordered all different items off the menu and EVERYTHING was phenomenal. I highly recommend the burger. The ambiance and service also was so enjoyable. Will be back as soon as possible!
Breakfast was bad. Ordered chicken that came raw. Everything was under salted. Tasted like it came from a buffet. Had great experiences pre pandemic but this was a huge let down
Super great experience and lovely food. Service was amazing. Cant wait to come back!!
Delicious small plates - everything very well done!
Great bistro with interesting food. Eaten there 3x in the last month- tapas style/family style/make sure you sample all the flavors! Love the blt lettuce wraps. intriguing wine list by the glass and friendly ambiance. if you can get outdoor seating in the back, it is a lot quieter than being right on Mass Ave in Central Square
The service was kind and welcoming and the food was even better than I remembered. So glad they are open and serving again— I can’t wait to go back!
The food was unbelievably amazing and our server was amazing we told her we had to be quick to make it to the Red Sox game and she made sure our meal was perfect alongside coming very quick so we could make the game she also chose our wine to pair with the many dishes we had and chose perfectly
Amazing food!! I liked the dimly lit ambiance as well as the drink list ( I got a mocktail and it was delicious. This was my first visit and I can’t wait to go back.
Frequent diner at little donkey, glad to be back post covid! Everything amazing as usual. Never disappoints, always my fave place to go out to eat.
Except the cheap silver wear it’s back to where it was pre Covid, excellent!
Food was unusual, perfectly prepared and delicious. The service was efficient, friendly and informative. Our server was so knowledgeable and steered us to a post-Covid dining experience that was worth waiting for.
Delicious food, great presentation, excellent service!
Food was fantastic & our waiter was great too! We received 3/4 of our meal right away (tapas style), but then had to wait over 45 minutes for anything else. We ended up having to take the last 2 portions & dessert to-go. Fun vibe & atmosphere + easily accessible from the T.
I loved everything about our experience at Little Donkey. Definitely a favorite spot. Our favorite dishes were the crab spring rolls and octopus casino. The seafood was so fresh.
Great besides asking to sit at empty tables near a space heater and being told no even though we also had a reservation
We love the Lil Donk. Happy to be back after such a long time away.
First place we ate when we were fully vaccinated. Fabulous waiter, great food and a large door that opens and brings fresh air inside.
Great service and creative dining menu. Always fun.
Great to be back at Little Donkey. As good as ever! Wonderful food and service
Small plates but very well balanced flavors. Surprising to have each plates of different cuisines meld together.
It was too cold and windy outside unfortunately
It was SO good. We got the burger, Bangkok noodles and the ghost king fried chicken. It was delicious!
Great place, variety of food. Delicious! We had a great time.
The food was quite good but the portion is quite small. The hostess was not particularly friendly when we checked in. We sat outside and waited 15 minutes before a server came. It was quite chilly and we went there because of the heat lamps but none of them were working. They ran out of propane over the weekend.
I was disappointed as I expected a lot more.
Burned food, cold burgers, terrible service
Menu looked ambitious but the the flavors did not match the menu!
The food was excellent and our server was incredibly friendly and helpful with food recommendations. The food came out rather quickly, but there was a strict 1.5 hour policy and the waiters kept reminding us of that, which made us feel rushed and pressured to leave.
Little Donkey is the best – including their employees! I felt safe there, too, during this (sort of) post-pandemic time.
It was great- fun, socially distanced and great service!
The Gin and Tonic was a hit! Food wasn't exceptional, but good: we ordered empanadas, Bangkok noodles, and spicy chicken sandwich. There weren't a lot of vegetarian options unfortunately!
Not as tasty as I’m used to. Thinking they’re just getting back in the swing of things. I look forward to going back.
What’s not to love about Little Donkey?!?! Everything from the oysters to the cookie dough was delish!
Awesome food. Had to eat in the parking lot, so the ambience was clearly subpar, but that’s not the restaurant’s problem. When covid goes away it will still be an awesome place to eat overall.
First timer. Food was wonderful. We got the Octopus casino, oysters, Mantai, Empanadas, and the crab spring rolls. It was to die for. The octopus was my favorites. Along with the once in a grapefruit cocktail. Which was literally served in a grapefruit. Would definitely come again.
Incredible dining experience if not one of the best!! Service was 15/10. Can’t remember the servers name. We dined on 4/19 at the bar at 6:15p. Friendly, efficient and most of all attentive!! Food came out just at the right times. We finished one plate and voila, the next plate would arrive. Every single dish was exquisite and I was on a Little Donkey high until the next night. My friend and I that I dined with kept reminiscing about how amazing the entire night was. Will definitely be back! And hopefully I can figure out that servers name !
Had a wonderful night at Little Donkey! So happy they’re open again. Ate outside and although it started to rain, the staff was quick to get us covered by umbrella/tent. I forget the cocktail but the vodka/fruit punch one was delicious! The food was so flavorful and bright. Our server George was awesome and was knowledgeable about the wine list. Only distraction was a noise that happened every 6 mins but I know it was out of their control.
It was great to be back despite the chilly weather. The outdoor space heaters were much appreciated.
Love Little Donkey - so happy to return. The food is amazing. The Caviar McMuffin is one of the best dishes on the planet, the Kalbi or Galbi (Korean short rib) is extraordinary, and service always great... I was sad they altered the perfect chicken sandwich but was still delish. I love this place so happy you are back!!!
