Service was poor, we were seated upstairs even though there was plenty of room downstairs so the ambience was nil. The food was not as good as we had remembered.
Great quality tequilas. Atmosphere was amazing.
Great happy hour specials as well.
Great restaurant, excellent location, and wonderful service. Would else could you ask for?
Pretty disappointing. It had been awhile since we had been to Lena, and we thought we liked it a lot. My problem is that the menu is just too limited. When I look at, there's only a couple of things I even want to eat. The shrimp chorizo dish had been one of our favorites, but it seemed very dry and overcooked. Octopus civeche is very good, but I don't think we'll be going back anytime soon.
Hood for sharing. Good eclectic food for all people who are somewhat adventurous. Can see how menu would accommodate dietary restrictions. Good drink menu, good service if a bit slow. Definitely a good new/fledgling foodie spot. Try it, you’ll like it.
Great service, beautifully seasoned dishes, but very loud - we had a hard time hearing each other over the noise.
Went with a group of 8, 2 of which were teenage boys. Food was very good, plates are small tapas style so we ended up with 12 dishes and 3 or 4 sides plus 6 desserts. Food came out steadily and allowed for easy sharing. Service was friendly and responsive. Overall a very pleasant evening!
We have been to Lena several time over the last few years - it keeps improving, and last night May 4 spectacular. The ceviche - so good - just perfect. Also loved the shrimp and chorizo, the tacos de costilla and chicken empanadas. This place is fantastic. We will keep coming back. Love it.
Had no expectations and were really delighted with our experience. Friendly and fast service.
We each an an empanada order of two (the dough on the chicken is very tender whereas the verde is totally different and hard). The flank steak was so delicious. We split the meat order and left very full. Very reasonable . Parking is challenging on Broadway. Next time we'll have the steak again but try the asparagus.
Outstanding service, food, and ambiance. Our server was one of the best I've had in a long time. Food portions could be a bit bigger for the price, but Lena is still in line with most good Denver eateries.
Great food. Great service. My current favorite. Great place to bring the family.
Great Food! Was one of the first to show up on a Sunday morning! So we had the place to ourselves!!
This place was wonderful. I don’t know the last time I had food that good out at a restaurant. Our only complaint was the slow service. I don’t know where our server kept going but sometimes it would be 20+ mins before she’d reappear.
Went to Leña for my birthday and it was perfect! I loved the grilled haloumi and the octopus ceviche as well as the chicken empanada. Their house margarita is delicious and the rest of the cocktail menu is so creative. Our server was very gracious and attentive despite my obnoxious birthday attitude. ;)
Great service, we're impressed by the food. Very good!
the octopus ceviche is great! Would go back for that.
Fun. Latin inspired. Enjoyed the small bites menu options on the brunch menu. Our group enjoyed the different flavors of mimosas too! Great service with a earthy environment.
Great food, a little noisy (all hard surfaces) good happy hour prices. Empanadas especially good.
Good food and really great happy hour prices! Their margaritas are delicious, made with lime juice and agave, not the gross marg. mix.
Didn’t actually get to eat. The bottom is really cute with nice lighting and music but even with open tables down there, they sat us in some top part that fees like you’re the ugly patrons stuck in the attic. We asked to move down and they accommodated that Witt an attitude. Then we didn’t get service for 10+ minutes even though several servers walked by and chatted with the tables on either side of us. We ended up walking out. If I’m going out for a nice dinner, I expect better than average service and this was no service at all. Do not recommend and I hope Lena sees this so their servers realize how rude and disgusting their behavior was.
Great food, ceviche not to be missed and the tres leches is to die for.
Charming restaurant with a vibrant and interesting menu. Lovely wine list. They were able to accommodate some dietary issues/restrictions with no problem at all - and a friendly attitude about it. Everyone in our party was thrilled with the food and ambiance. Thanks!!
Absolutely amazing every time - great food, service and ambiance!
as always, delicious atmosphere, delightful staff, fabulous cocktails.
A tremendous find. You can count on us to be back again
Hidden gem for sure! Great deal on bottomless mimosas on Sundays and the brunch was delicious! Will become a regular at this spot.
The service and atmosphere was wonderful and would definitely recommend it !
Delicious meal and they easily accommodated our large party. Great service and a great time.
Lovely, perfect neighborhood spot. Authentic, delicious Latin food, great friendly service.
A delicious dinner of small plates with a great bottle of wine and terrific service. The ceviche is wonderful, but then again, so were the tacos, fish, small biscuits, and empenadas.
We go here often and love it - good ambiance and good drinks and food. definitely get the mixto entree for the table.
Experience Leña during Denver Restaurant week and the food was soooo good! Great options, great portions, great service. The churros were a great finish to a great meal!
The drinks are great but food quality has declined
Food, service and atmosphere were great, but they crammed a lot of tables close together up top where we were seated and this made it quite noisy and hard to hear between the four of us at our table
My order came out wrong, the food was under-seasoned (all of it). Service was subpar...
Went for Restaurant Week and it was highly enjoyable. I was able to modify my order from the usual menu so I appreciated their flexibility. The portions were large and the food was delicious. I got the octopus which was the best part of the meal. The service was a bit slow but the food made up for it. I would definitely go back to try their regular menu.
Amazing atmosphere and the food is phenomenal. Reasonably priced wine too. We went for Denver restaurant week and I was ecstatic. They were very good about accommodating my gluten and dairy allergies as well.
Loved it. Great night. Have recommended to others.
A small group of us went in for Restaurant Week. Great pricing for the number of courses. Food and drinks were amazing! Our server Sophia was very knowledgeable and attentive. We will definitely be back for another visit.
The food was good, but not what I would call outstanding....where in you think that you to have this again meal again.
Hana was outstanding and charming.
