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.
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.
Would not recommend during restaurant week. Service was horrible: spent a total of 2.5 hours from start to finish. After our 2nd course appetizers (of a 4 course meal) the waiter asked if we were ready for dessert...…..We informed him that we hadn't been served dinner yet. He looked totally confused. They totally forgot to acknowledge the special request I had made...It was our 1st year wedding anniversary. The upstairs 2nd floor seating area noise level was extreme and not enjoyable. This place was ill-prepared to handle this large of a crowd and the entire experience was pretty bad.
The empanadas are the must have on the menu. You can admire the decor while waiting for your food but you will be too distracted by your amazing drink. The service could be better but no matter servers come and go. The chickens empanadas, order...all of them.
Lena and a movie at the Mayan!
We found this gem of a restaurant during Denver Restaurant Week 2018 and have been back MANY times. It is the perfect location for us to have a bite to eat before a movie at the Mayan. The 2019 DRW menu didn't seem to offer different choices than the usual menu, but rather a hearty mix of 4 options. We loved it!
Leña's cocktail and food menu was was an elevated blend of Hispanic and South American cultural dishes and it was all delicious.
Our server was attentive and nice and the courses for restaurant week were especially awesome to experience a lot of what this restaurant has to offer.
All of our food seemed in between warm and cold like they couldn't decide if the dish was supposed to be hot; or maybe the food was pre-prepped and then warmed over to serve. Flavors weren't that impressive. Felt over priced and lackluster.
Wonderful atmosphere with delicious, authentic South American food!
