So fab to be back. We love LD and missed the food and the service. We sat outside under twinkling trees. We’d never tried the BLT before and damn! Also I’m still thinking about that Ine sundae.
Imaginative, tasty food, great ambiance and service.
Absolutely fantastic restaurant! Everything was creative and delicious. Go now!
Very good food with a nice atmosphere. Lots of options for food and drinks.
It was awesome and the food was great
Little Donkey is one of the better food options in Central Sq. The food is ok but with the exception of the octopus, none of it was especially delicious. It was all good, though.
Dana always creates the perfect dining experience. 12/10 every time
The Little Donkey was recommended to me. It was a very unique menu and i was not disappointed.
Loved our entire meal from start to finish. The staff are excellent and recommended some amazing dishes. Beautiful night to be on their great patio
Emily F was AMAZING!! Loved her and her recs
Excellent food and service. I liked the ambiance, casual Cambridge sheik.
Gotta try the fried cauliflower and lamb bacon BLT!
Food is great. Fun music. Good vibe for a night out with friends
Fun night out at Little Donkey. I’ve been here before and loved it but maybe we just ordered the wrong dishes this time. The octopus was just so so and a very small plate for the price. The cold ramen was good but not something I liked so much that I’d get it again. Tune poke was delicious and so was our ice cream desert.
Great food as always.
Food is not good anymore. Service is below average. And it’s overpriced. Was very disappointing
Delicious food and amazing service! Our server was kind enough to recommend a variety of items for our party and his choices were spot-on.
Delicious! Amazing! Great food, great service. We had a little bit of everything!
Little Donkey never disappoints. From our drinks to our last bite of dessert, everything was perfection!
Having eaten here many times before it was a pleasure returning and having dinner outside under an umbrella. Every course was delicious and the service was excellent. Will definitely return.
Their seasonal changes in the menu make each visit interesting
Hit out of the park. Eclectic delicious seafood and tapas. Great lively atmosphere. Nice server. Only sides a little dark and loud so maybe not a business meeting spot but social. My eats:
There lamb pops were amazing, oysters great, king crab, asparagus cold salad, salmon crudo. All good. I would put salmon last. Nice flavor
Wonderful and creative food. Great drinks. Slightly slow service but perhaps it was just that night.
A little noisy for us. Otherwise great. Our waiter was wonderful guiding us through the menu and, as it was our first visit, commenting that our order seemed a little "robust".
He was terrific!
Great food, drinks and atmosphere! The waiter was also very nice and prompt.
The food is okay. Nothing memorable for the hype of the place. Very noisy and dark with miniature font menus. My eyesight may not be at the level of 20 years ago but still good and it was hard to read.
Food did not wow us which was surprising since we heard such good reviews. Nice service overall and they seated us even though we were late.
Food was good, ambiance was hip and upbeat. Service from our server was rather slow and perfunctory - support staff was on the ball, though. If the food is going to come out so quickly, the speed of service from waitstaff needs to match!
Fantastic per usual, the staff was on top of it and soo attentive and the food was absolutely delicious!!
Very nice waiter, food was quick and delish! Would definitely come here again.
Every single dish (we had 13 in total) was delicious. Amazing!
The restaurant’s layout is very packed and their vibe is a little weird. Decent music and good service. The food is delicious and creative. The biggest downside is that their drinks are bad and they don’t accept a lot of types of credit cards. I don’t know why they have to be cheap like that.
Delicious food, amazing service. Overall an awesome experience!
Great meal at Little Donkey! Love how diverse the menu is. Would come back to try more dishes and reorder our favorites from this past time. Very intimate environment too (dim lighting) - perfect for date night!
An outstanding restaurant where the food is amazing!! Highly recommend for a special night out!
Fantastic menu, great cocktails. It can be loud inside. Great outdoor seating in the back.
Always love this place! Great food, lovely drinks, friendly staff.
Very pricey and food was lack luster, sadly. Service wasn't the best either.
Great food, excellent atmosphere and always fun!!!
The food was excellent. Our waitress was great by providing us recommendations.
