Great lunch!

Stopped in for lunch and enjoyed everything. Had a little wait, but worth the wait. Server was nice and the food was good!

Very accommodating, the people at Wild Donkey. A sunny warm day in May, and our hosts were able to park their little doggie under our patio table. Too much sun? We got an additional umbrella. Not sure which wine? Have a taste on us. And my menu choice - penne with Mediterranean sausage - was tasty. Never got 'round to... More

Interesting combination but great if two people have different food interests. Good service - good food.

For once an American restaurant that serves interesting food in sensible portions for a reasonable price, without bombarding the diner with offers of side dishes etc. We were promised interesting fusion cookery, and that was just what we got. Excellent - we would definitely advise friends to go there.

Decided to try out this place based on Tripadvisor ratings. Small, cozy place in downtown. We did call ahead since there were 14 in our group. We were immediately seated in the middle of the restaurant. The ladies including owner were very friendly and inviting. As others have mentioned, this place is a unique fusion of Mexican and Greek cuisines.... More

First,I must say I am not an adventurous eater. I am leery of spices and ingredients I don't recognize. For a person such as me, this is not the place to go. However, if you like variety and spices, this IS the place to go. I went with friends and the more adventurous among us loved it. For the others,... More

I had the Vegetarian Souvlaki, which is supposed to be broiled mushrooms, bell peppers and tofu in a pita. It actually was a white flour pita with lettuce, runny yogurt, and raw tofu. For $10. There were zero peppers. If they were out of peppers, they should have said so, being that was one of three main ingredients. There were... More

This was the best "lasagna" I have ever had. It was a cross between lasagna and desert... I could eat this every night forever!!! The baklava with vanilla bean ice cream, for desert, was just amazing. Can't say enough about this place. The service was exceptional, the food was out of this world, and the energy was relaxed and happy.... More
