Very surprised by this last minute open table destination. Kind of place you would see tucked away in alley street in NYC/Chicago. Excellent burger/salads/appetizers.
Will go back for sure
It's a nice, casual spot for 2-5 people. Nothing too fancy. The prices are on the higher side. Food is pretty good too.
My husband and I were both craving a good burger and a beer. So we tried the little and were not disappointed. We both enjoyed our burgers and the fries were perfectly crispy! We asked for extra crispy fries. The only small improvement that could have been added to burger was if it was a little pink in the middle. Next time we will ask for the burger to be cooked a little more medium. We will be back!
We've dined at this restaurant several times with friends on a Friday night. The atmosphere is cozy and usually the "comfort" food is tasty. This time we were disappointed with the food. The burger was dry, bland and over fried. The Caesar salad was tasteless and soggy. It's a cute venue so I hope the food improves!
I took my boyfriend out on a date on Friday and we had another couple join us. I wanted to bring him somewhere new, and was pleasantly surprised when I came across The Little online. When we arrived we were shocked that such a cute place was nestled on Lonsdale and neither of us had ever seen it (we live 2 blocks away.) Unfortunately the food took an hour and 20 minutes to come out, and we couldn't enjoy it properly as we had plans to see a movie and had to rush. The food was quite good, but I really wish out of respect the waiter/restaurant would advise us that the kitchen was backed up. The restaurant wasn't full so I'm not sure if this was the case, or if it was just because the kitchen is small (either way we should have been advised.) One more suggestion: the sensor light next door on the back patio is very distracting if you're facing towards the restaurant - would be great if you could block it somehow.
Service was slow....... My wife makes better food for dinner on nights we only have 30 min to make dinner
Awesome burger and fries, excellent patio and service!
Not great. They were out of the drink my husband ordered, and out of the mussels he ordered. The food we did get was good, and our server discounted our bill, but we also had to ask for silverware after our meal had come. Not the anniversary dinner i had hoped for.
Server was unfriendly and inattentive. Food took a long time to come out even though the restaurant was quite empty. We were unpleasantly surprised with a 18% auto gratuity for our large group of 7 - this wasn't mentioned anywhere and the service didn't even warrant a 10% tip. I usually like this place but our last experience was terrible!
Fabulous dinner - deep fried pickles were amazing. Food was fresh, huge portions and delicious. Room is small, but our group was pretty noisy so we didn't mind! Service was 11 out of 10. Will definitely be back.
Delicious food. Openness to special requests.
I have eaten at Little District MANY times since it opened and recommended it to a lot of people too. I have suggested, before, that since your appie prices went up, it would be nice to have a change in the appie menu, but, does not seem to be happening. Ordered the Chorizo sausage and got it uncooked. I knew It was smoked so ate it anyway. When I told your chef he said he did not know why it was not cooked. Really? Glad I did not send it back.
We decided to sit on the small deck at the back of the restaurant. Enjoyed our conversation as well as the comfort food. The server(s) were very pleasant throughout our dinner stay. Good fun!
We love District so going to the Little is just a smaller version of a great restaurant.
One of my favourite places to go ... although I think it might be time to change your appies menu a bit since the price has gone up. Other than that, you guys are doing a great job.
For such a small place (with a teeny kitchen) they have too much food on their menu. I think if they paired it down a bit, they may be more successful. Either way, the food that we ordered was great. We got the prawns tacos and the fish tacos and they tasted great though unfortunately were on a flour tortilla (server told us they were on corn). A girl we were with has a sensitivity and was unable to eat them "as a taco". No one was disappointed with the food, but it did take a very long time to get, even after asking for a rush as we were pressed for time. They were very kind to give us a discount for the food taking so long.
I would like to give this place another try not being in a rush and see how they handle everything.
We enjoyed some of the food, but the room is very cramped, resulting in tables being extremely close together with no privacy. There were obviously in a hurry to have us get through our dinner so they could seat the next guests.
We thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing and laid back vibe at the Little restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised with the happy hour selection of 3$ drinks and small plates (available 3 to 6pm). What a great way to sample several items on the menu! The proximity of the tables adds a sweet community feel but it's not for everyone...
All male servers last night - great change from the cliché of the big chain restaurants.
This restaurant is a block from our home. We go there often with friends and normally enjoy their fabulous burgers, fried oysters and fish & chips. There are other delicious items on the menu as well.
I definitely recommend this restaurant!
I went to this place three times within five days... I think that says enough! Couldn't get enough of the Cajun prawns and 16 buck chuck burger.
