Too loud. But delicious and fun.
This is a great brunch spot. I think their quiche is the best in town. The oysters are tasty and served with a spicy sauce, as well as a jelled mignonette. Good bloody mary, too. Friendly service at both table and bar.
Great brunch in a fun and cozy venue. The food is tapas style to plates are small, and though things are not really easy to split/share, the dishes are really enough for a light and not too expensive meal. Excellent service and very delicious.
Great food in a fun environment!
The staff at little donkey are the absolute best in Boston. The food is so good and varied. Always recommend LD to anyone looking for a new spot
Great service combined with an eclectic menu of fabulous dishes make for a really solid experience in Central Square.
Great place to meet a friend for lunch and dine on their eclectic menu
I’d recommend this place as an after work spot for drinks and shared appetizers. Kind of a hipster place. Thought they tried too hard to put a twist of the small plates and The selection is limited if you have dietary restrictions.
I took my college student son and his friend to Little Donkey based on the strong ratings on open table and because they like tapas. Dinner was delicious. It was not typical tapas, however, and it is pretty expensive - especially the wine (really nothing under $60/bottle). We all enjoyed the meal.
Everything was amazing as usual. Have been here quite a few times and it’s always a great experience.
Food is good, especially if you like spicy dishes. Portions were good to share and reasonably priced for the area. Downside was the service- very slow to get food we ordered and they forgot one of our dishes. It is a very loud environment and hard to hear others. Also pretty dark.
I love everything about Little Donkey: the food, the service, the music, and the overall vibe. Long may it live.
While the overall experience was positive, I thought several of the dishes were too salty. The mix of flavors was great, but the dishes were overpowered a bit by the sodium content. Cocktails were good, and our waiter was fun and engaging.
Everything was great about the restaurant the food seem wait her, but the hostess is horrible. She’s a terrible attitude
good food and service.. smoke from the kitchen was an irritant.
Dishes have too many flavors that take away from the protein.
Really great food and service as usual! One of the best brunches in the city!
Was there on New Years Eve for dinner. Food and service was on point. Will return for sure.
We had an AMAZING experience at Little Donkey on New Years Eve. I’m allergic to Peanuts & Tree Nuts and the staff was INCREDIBLE about accommodating me and making me feel safe about every item we ordered. I will definitely be back and I will be recommending this restaurant to friends and those with food allergies!
The menu, food, service is spectacular!
Global tapas make for a globe trotting experience in one dinner. Everything we ordered was amazing, but the highlights include the king crab nachos and the manti (Turksih dumplings). Our server was the best that I have ever had, helping us navigate the menu as well as providing much appreciated positive reinforcement in our choices. Will definitely need to come back!
Delicious brunch! Food does not come out all at once - concept is table sharing. So order a lot for everyone! Wide variety of food worth getting a bite of everything.
Best restaurant in all of Boston, hands down
Delish. Great staffing levels and kitchen pacing for small plates.
My favorite in Boston!
One of my best dining experiences in a while. Superb customer service, excellent excellent food. Now one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. I will certainly be back.
We enjoy Little Donkey but, since we live on the North Shore, tend to save trips for special occasions. Food and drinks are always excellent.
The food was ok, nothing out of the ordinary but the drinks were very good and unique. I’m not sure if the smoke extractor were working but you could see the smoke all over the place and when we walk out we were smelling like food and out cloth were smelling bad because of that.
Awesome as ever!
I am not sure how often the menu changes, but I think offering a greater variation can be positive.
Excellent cocktails. Trendy and noisy. So not a good place for a quiet relaxing meal.
1/2 of the dishes were really excellent. None were bad.
Overall very good but not great.
Really warm inside
Food is always great at Little Donkey, inventive, yet not over-the-top. I wish it weren't quite so dark, and a lot less loud--I know that's the fashion these days, but surely a little padding wouldn't be out of order. Go for great food; don't expect intimate conversation.
Cocktail selection was great and the ones that we had were quite tastey! The food was all tapas style with the nachos being our favorite! I would highly recommend!
First time to Boston and I was really hoping to enjoy some eclectic food from a local establishment. Went for brunch, which was amazing! The pumpkin bread, cheese bread, and burger were so delicious. Only thing that could have helped the burger would have been a better bun; however maybe the flavors of the burger wouldn’t have shone through as much if that were the case. Favorite item though was the sausage. This was closer to an andouille or bratwurst than a typical breakfast sausage and was so delicious I had to save part of it for the end of my meal just to enjoy again. Heartily recommend this place!
I have been a fan of Jamie Bissonnette since his time at KO Prime. He made me one of the best meals I have ever had there. I was thrilled to be able to experience Little Donkey and taste how his collaboration with Ken Oringer has advanced his creativity. The food was exceptional, as was the service. I especially loved the long bean dish, of which I could eat weekly and never get bored. The noise level in the restaurant made it a bit difficult to converse with my husband, which would be my only critique. We were also celebrating my husband’s birthday. He (very inconveniently) went to the bathroom as they were about to bring his birthday dessert, and the server was kind enough to bring the dish back a few minutes later. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we’ll be back!
I loved the ceviche and the burrata. The drunken noodles are also excellent, if you like spicy food
Food was amazing!! Service was excellent. Ambiance is nice but super dark. Everyone in the place was using cell phones just to read the menu!
My favorite restaurant. Drink are equally as great as the food! Tapas style so my flavors to choose from!
Food is amazing as always!
Your team has skill.
