Little Donkey is an absolute gem. We were there for first seating at 10:30 am on a Sunday. Glad we had a reservation since they were very busy and tables we blocked off by 11:20. Our dishes were delicious and came out pretty quickly. Someone at our table had a nut allergy and every dish was brought out with a clearance of the allergy so that incase she wanted to try other dishes, she knew what was safe. The salmon and Tuna Tartar is delicious, but unbelievably small and full review

It was a cute spot, but the food was nothing out of the ordinary and a bit overpriced for what it is. For instance, the cacao e pepe was comparable to instant ramen. I’d strongly argue that a $1 pack of ramen would’ve been better, and I’m sure other dishes are better in general. Our server was lovely and attentive, that I wish I caught her name. I’d come back for the ambiance and good service, but otherwise, a bit lackluster.

Came here for a work dinner and made a reservation a week in advance (super kind folks on the phone!). Ordered a bunch of dishes to try, but wasn't particularly wowed by anything and left feeling pretty sluggish. We tried the Parker house rolls, ricotta toast, empanada, tandoori beets, Kowloon cauliflower, Bangkok street noodles, mushroom fried rice, cacio e Pepe, and the profiteroles and brownie for dessert. The main issue with most of the dishes was the SALT. Almost full review
