  • Really great fusion tapas. The raw bar has some rare items and there is a Portugal vibe throughout the menu.
  • If you like small plates and different cuisines this is a great place for you. Always pretty crowded and food is great. Plates will sometimes rotate depending on the season.
  • Food: Poke with gochujang, pumpkin pupusa, spicy Thai street noodles, blowfish tails, and the churro ice cream sandwichDrinks: Hive mind, buds & bumpers, the one in a grapefruit So, so good.
  • Fun vibe but over air conditioned. Lots of delicious small plates. Try the hot & messy fried chicken sandwich
  • Absolutely love this place. Had the razor clams, wagyu beef tartar with popover, caviar sandwich (a little small but expected with the price), the blowfish was AMAZING, and lobster pasta. Great vibes
  • Get the BLT Lettuce Wraps and the Tuna Poke (if you like spice!)
  • Felt a bit hipster here but really enjoyed!! Something for everyone from sweets to savory. Lively spot with clear crowd filling in around noon. Go early (11am) and no probs.
  • The lighting and sound level are that of a nightclub.
  • It is loud and dark, portions are kinda hard to share.
  • This place is fabulous for dinner and brunch. Inventive cocktails, an amazing pastry chef! I'm addicted to the Chilaquilas and spicy thai street noodles :)
  • Good cocktails. Dont skip the duck confit nachos.
  • Worth it - Parker house rolls w pork butter/miso butter. BBQ scallops. Uni sandwich. Octopus. Ramen carbonara. Churro ice cream sandwich. Cookie dough on a beater.
  • Everything we had was delicious, but the chow fun was definitely the standout. Will be returning to try more of the small plates and dessert!
  • Central square: really creative & delicious plates (lots of good ones for sharing) in a hip setting.
  • The Hummus & Naan is really good, get the charred avocado alogside it
  • Cocktails and food are fantastic! Plates to share, don't pass on the manti or ode to Pablo!
  • The cocktails were fantastic! Get the one in a grapefruit! It's literally in a grapefruit
  • Get a few plates to share & the Grapefruit drink. Also the Jerk Chicken wings were *perfectly* spiced
  • The Grapefruit cocktail is the nectar of gods. Little Gem Salad, Manti and Cookie Dough great. Must return to try Raw bar / ceviche next time. This place is amazing.
  • Creatively cupped in a grapefruit, The Donkey Punch at Little Donkey in Boston is made with Cimarron reposado tequila, cassis, lime and agave for a punch of citrus and a kick of sweetness.
