Interesting South American tapas menue. Prompt service. Good wine choices. Saturday night is DJ night, pleasant choice but unfortunately a bit loud for conversation...
Food was excellent, the server Camilla was amazing. Location was great!! Very clean. Highly recommend!!
Loved the food and ambience
The overall experience was great. We had the empanadas, calamari and fried yucca as appetizers. All were great except the Aloi which tasted of only mayonnaise. I had the cod which was good but lukewarm. The food was good but not fantastic. I'll have to try it again.
Great brunch/breakfast ok lunch. However the service and ambiance are great.
Amazing! Great waiters
Cesar salad needs improvement. Everything else was good
I ate a fairly pricey burger that was pink in the middle. Didn't like that. Overall, i felt the food wasn't worth the price. Everything else was great!
Awesome service and great food, the prices are very reasonable, higly recommended .
Great bar, restaurant pedestrian
Everything was very nice. Only complaint was that the options for gluten free entrees were very limited.
Food was not of our expectation and very expensive for what we received. Service was also poor as we were seated on the higher level and close to the end.
The service was poor.... our server has 4 tables to attend to but yet he rarely comes by and we had to ask for his presence to get our orders taken, ask for the bill etc... we waited for a long time to get our jackets so finally I had to get our jackets on our own.
Food was very good. We found the share plates small, especially the $24 ham which was barely enough to share.
Waitress was excellent.
Dinner was good. But VERY SLOW
We felt bad for her because our food took an extremely long time to come out.
The table that came in after us got their food before us and we’re almost done by the time we got ours. We ordered before them.
We couldn’t have desert because we had to leave to go to an 8pm show. We got there at 5.
Overall, it was good and I would be willing to give it another chance.
The menu is fairly small but the choices are interesting and a bit different. It was a Friday night so the main floor was rather energetic, but we were upstairs where it is more intimate. The waiter was attentive and very helpful with our choices. It is not inexpensive, but we felt we had good value for the $$$.
Nice. Main dining room kind of pillar-obstructed and back of house sounds are not far. Look forward to trying the lower level bar sometime. Looks swank.
LaLa Bar on lower lever has great drinks, table service in upper levels was very nice, wine list has great choices and a fun innovative menue. Will be back.
Smoked salmon ceviche was truly delicious. The service was impeccable; the server did an excellent job helping us navigate the menu and extensive drink list to ensure that we got the most out of our experience. Would highly recommend and will definitely return.
Our server was fantastic - super attentive and fun. Who doesn't love $1 oysters!
Arrived for a business lunch and was taken to the dining area. 20 minutes after our lunch was supposed to start, I finally reach out to my guest to confirm the restaurant's location. Turns out that she had been seated in another part of the restaurant and had been waiting for me to arrive. We offered the equivalent of $5 off our meal to compensate for losing a significant portion of our time.
Food was uninspiring - chicken avocado sandwich was plain and tiny for the price.
Overall very disappointing. Will not return.
Great food, well thought out flavours. It was really loud, even in the dining area. Otherwise it was a wonderful time!
Delicious food and great service! The only downside is noise level.. it's hard to have an intimate conversation with your table.
What an incredible anniversary night. Service gave us the utmost VIP attention, and even gave us some personalized items for our celebration. Although the half price bottles are limited, the selection is good. The venue is a beautiful spot in the middle of downtown, and I would be very interested in their basement bar sometime in the future. The food was hearty, flavourful, rustic yet with a touch of refinement. I sometimes am hesitant about restaurants that are owned by a larger entity (O&B in this case), but I feel like that the heart of this place sings through, and certainly is one of the better spots I've visited in Toronto. Thank you!
Very disappointing! Our second time at Lena....likely won’t return. Drinks were tiny & food was average at best.
Got off to a rocky start, had a reservation and the hostess had no table assigned to me. I know that reserve signs were placed on other tables because I saw her bring one back after seating the people ahead of me. Yes I came alone but should be treated the same as anyone else who reserved. Another hostess came to the front and immediately was friendly and helpful and gave a very nice table. The rest of the service and food was great!
First visit to Leña and not our last. Service was prompt and initially felt a bit rushed but settled out overall. Food is imaginative and very good. Portions for our mains were excellent (I.e. we didn't leave hungry) Nice to see the option for shareable starters and appetizers vs. Just appetizers and mains. Down side was that these were in my opinion overpriced. Wine list is not huge but provides a good range of wines for every palate and budget.
Delicious food, good small portion sizes. Noise level is a bit high. Got seated at bar level instead of the quieter basement restaurant level for dinner. Make sure to ask to go to the lower floor if you're looking for an enjoyable meal conversation. Not enough waiters working for the crowd. The entrees are overpriced for the small portions.
I always enjoy eating at Lena. The me u is creative and the food is always delicious. This was my first time dining for dinner. Previously I have eaten brunch. I highly recommend this restaurant. I love the ambience too.
The food was absolutely delicious. The service was very good - knowledgeable, experienced, although when it got too busy, we didn't see the servers for a while and had empty dishes sitting in front of us for what appeared to be an unacceptably long time.
The food was very tasty. We both had the steak frites and were very impressed with the quality. The service was outstanding. The only downside was that we found the wine prices a bit over the top.
Great food and atmosphere. The ceviches are amazing!
Food was a delicious in particular I loved the spaghetti with burrata and olives! Very friendly, well informed, seamless service.
Ordered the mushrooms on skewers and the sea bass - they were okay. The tagliatelle with shrimp was a disappointment though - it was bland and dry. We ate the food and it was just okay - nothing to rave about. Saving grace was the excellent service and friendly staff!
Had a nice dinner before the theatre. The octopus was excellent
Better Churros than Madrid :)
Nothing special. Overpriced for the quality of the food which is fine but not spectacular. Sea food pasta too salty.
Burned cheesecake wa great.
Server was attentive and sincere. Food was delicious as always. We decided to eat Tapas style and it was the perfect pace & amount of food. Thank you for a wonderful time!
Everything was amazing from the fantastic drinks, friendly staff to the incredible food and decor. We will definitely be back!
Birthday dinner! Amazing time. Outstanding service
Food was amazing. I have a severe garlic allergy and they were able to accommodate almost any dish. Love a restaurant that can cook well without having to use garlic like so many restaurants who feel they have to put it in everything. Kevin our waiter was amazing and precise. He is definitely in the right job.
