    We love Lena! Sebastian and the whole team are wonderful. The food is great - the outdoor area is perfect. We keep coming back because we know we will have a great experience! The carbonara and the roasted brie with rosemary are especially great!

    We were here to consume, but unfortunately, the waiters were running everywhere. Not enough people, so even if we were a table of 4 near the bar inside, there didn't get the time to come more often. So after 2 hours with just one bottle and two plates (1 was missing). We wanted to order more, but... After a while, we decided to go to another restaurant to eat. Otherwise, great ambiance, location, and design

    Polite, attentive staff. The street happened to be closed off and they had extensive outdoor seating. Was the perfect place to relax outdoors with a glass of wine in the city.

    Seems like a hidden gem... even though it's only a few steps off of Bleecker St.! They only serve wine and beer - but don't let that be an issue. Their wine list is something to see and they are very prepared to make recommendations. The food is very traditional French, and is to-die for! You could go here for a fun shared-plate style wine dinner, or for a little wine date! The atmosphere is quiet, but it feels like it could get more rambunctious on a busy night - but in a good way. I almost didn't write a review because I want to keep it quiet for when I want a table!

    We had such a good time and it was a combination of warmth from Jessica and her male colleague - they wanted to know about us, the food was so incredible; you must try the buratta which was one of the best we’ve had with sea salt, pesto and balsamic reduction and we each had the Tarte Flambe (Alsatian and another with added pesto), the crusts were thin and toppings fresh and generous! We applaud they asked to show our Covid vaccination card!

    Very limited brunch menu (omelettes etc) but what we had was really good. It's seldom that you find soft scrambled eggs any where. These were excellent! Some items on the main menu could be suitable for a brunch item. We'll go back.

    I've always enjoyed dining at Lena's with friends, especially for happy hour and dinner at the end of the week. This is the third and newest location that we've been to, and we tried some of their newer offerings on their menu (the beef tartare and the traditional Bouchée à la Reine for instance). Everything was delicious, including the waffle with whipped cream and chocolate sauce that we shared for dessert. The staff were friendly and made us feel warm and welcome. Overall, it was a great dining experience. I highly recommend Lena's for anyone who loves wine, French cuisine, and a cheerful, relaxed ambiance that feels like you're having a casual dinner party at your friend's place.

    My girlfriend and I tried Léna for an early date night. The location is great, nice and cozy. Favorite part about the night aside from the awesome food, is the impressive wine selections. You can choose your bottle directly from the shelves. Highly recommend!

    Difficult to do better! Seriously impressed! Pierre and his team are seriously putting a new level in the authentic French food in NY! I used to go to the Eldrigge one... this one in west village had just opened and wanted to test it! Amazing, this collaboration with the Chef David is bringing a lot of new textures, and flavors I love the oysters plate.. great new add on for appetizers I also tried the gambas basque style!!! Super tasty and very smooth finish! For wine i tried the Saint Joseph from Chapoutier that Pierre recommended and again a perfect wine pairing Thanks a lot to the Lena team! I love what you are building for us!!!
