A very nice location with a great atmosphere but I do believe overpriced
Nice and quiet - no too loud music.
I had the garlic shrimp entree. Very good but surprised shrimp not peeled.
We live 5 hours drive north of you but would go back again next time we are in Toronto..
No steak knife, had to use butter knife, caeser salad was just lettuce, no dressing or anything else. the steak wasnt worth the price, it came with just meat and the side(fries), expected a lot more for the price.
Great service and delicious food!!!
Delicious. Never had a bad meal
Excellent vegan options, delicious and very well curated !
The staff the food are amazing. I would recommend going for anything
Delicious food and drinks! Great spot, will be back for more!
My girlfriends and I had an amazing meal - all our tastebuds were tantalized! You cannot avoid the small plate menu - the onion bread was to die for!
Lovely ambience and the staff was very attentive. Would definitely recommend ~ we plan to go again!
Appetizers were amazing, mains were alright, I would consider just ordering a bunch of appetizers and not get mains! Service was awesome they were really sweet and welcoming.
It was a lovely evening, the service was the greatest. Food was delicious and we were able to celebrate as a family. Thank you to your team for the attention.
Leña is my favourite restaurant in the city. The food is not only beautiful to look at, but it’s delicious as well. Leña has a beautiful ambiance, decor, & vibe. You won’t be disappointed!
Place was great. Was expecting like a free dessert or something for the birthday event like other places do but did seems they don’t do that here.
First time here. Great surprise! The food was excellent! Would definitely come back and highly recommend it!
Great place for a quite dinner.
Portions are reasonably large.
Dishes are very well prepared.
We were all very pleased with the experience our first time but we will be back
Great food and great services. Enjoy our meal tremendously.
Lena is one of my fave restaurants. Highly recommend
Amazing food, wonderful atmosphere, great music!
The food is always great! We loved it! The prices are always reasonable and the taste is always amazing
Lovely spot. I celebrated a milestone at Lena. I enjoyed the interesting designs in different areas of this restaurant. Traditional plates serving Amazing food. Everything on the menu was outstanding and I have no complaints with our party’s service. Bartender and waiter were great. 5 star.
We went on a Wednesday, at 7pm. The tables were nicely spaced due to Covid and everything was very clean.
We enjoyed $1 oysters, half price wine and a variety of other items. Everything was delicious! Every dish has a wonderful flavouring and choice of fresh ingredients.
Service was prompt, attentive, and friendly.
This is my second experience here, one prior to Covid, and it’s always been an enjoyable experience.
The ambience of the restaurant is really warm and welcoming.
The service is incredible, food amazing. I have eaten here many times and always enjoyed. Would and have recommend this restaurant to anyone it is an great spot to go for drinks, casual or special dining, breakfast,lunch,dinner any occasion
The food was awesome . The staff was great . Will definitely come back again .
I would recommend this restaurant to any one wanting great food, amazing service. I have been many times and always had amazing service and great food. This restaurant is my favourite place to eat lunch, dinner, go for drinks. Staff is very knowledgeable about wine pairings and are happy to help you pick a great wine to go with your meal.
Lovely ambience and tasty food with generous portions and attentive wait staff. Would definitely like to try their dinner menu!
Food was great. Lovely location.
Our server had a bit of a chip on this shoulder. We asked to switch a chair because it was a lot lower than the bench/table and was very uncomfortable and not conducive to conversation or to eat easily (especially with the noise levels) when we initially got there. He abruptly told us “no, you can’t switch chairs - you have to get permission from the front desk as the table next to you might be reserved because of the chair” this is fair, however, he should have gone to ask instead of asking the customer to get up and go ask and make a request. Thankfully, the gentleman cleaning the tables (Indian looking man) was very helpful and took the initiative to do so on our behalf and then allowed us to move to a move functional table.
Dinner was great, service was smooth and the Veal Paillard was so delicious!!
We will be back!
The food was delicious and flavourful.
The noise level was a bit loud and the prices were on the high side too.
That being said, it was still a good experience.
The service was fantastic.
Would recommend this restaurant for whatever occasion you desire the staff is amazing very knowledgeable, food is incredible. This restaurant is my happy place
Poor service. Food was nothing special.
Food presentation was basic.
What an incredible and diverse menu! My family had beautiful, tender pork, octopus cooked to perfection, and side dishes of beautifully spiced legumes that highlighted the flavours of each dish. Would definitely go again!
We had our monthly women’s brunch here on Saturday and it was fabulous. The space was gorgeous, food was delicious, service was great, and the music was on point. It was somewhere where many of us had walked by but never actually tried. We’re glad we finally did.
Food was absolutely amazing and the staff , are top !!
We had an amazing experience, I would highly recommend Lena !
Great restaurant, love the centre bar and main dining room. Very New York feel!
Food was great, service was very good. Restaurant is so noisy. Too many hard surface with no noise reducing ability made it difficult to hold a conversation.
Service was good....food was terrible. I have dined here before, for brunch, and was looking forward to going back.
Very noisy- service amateurish- felt we were getting rushed to get out and it was a Monday night and not busy
