    My wife and I thought this was one of the most fun dates ever. The ambiance was classy and fun. It was upscale but not stodgy. The tables were either filled with couples on dates or families with kids under 10. The food was absolutely amazing. Everything we ordered was cooked perfectly, seasoned well, and brought to the table in a reasonable time. Between the Arancini balls, Brussels sprouts, vegetable pizza and Lena’s Sunday gravy, the Brussels sprouts were the surprising winner. We have added this place to our favorites in the area and look forward to returning!!

    We love Lena's Loft, but on a Saturday night when business was brisk, it was so loud we had a hard time talking with each other. I don't think they can do anything about that. We won't stop going to the Loft but will choose a less popular time slot in the future.

    The experience was overall great. The waiter was knowledge and made good recommendations, however he wasn't very present at our table during the meal. Never came by to see how everything came out and if we needed anything else (i.e. condiments, dessert etc.) The owner made a presence at our table which was a delight.

    I closed our bill right when desert arrived because we have small kids and wanted to be efficient. We tipped nicely and never saw the waiter again. Had to go to the bar to get food containers for left overs. It was a little weird. He made his tip and bounced.

    In town visiting our daughter. We looked at all of the Italian and pizza specialty places in the area. Lena’s caught my attention over all of the restaurants in the area. We are huge fans of the Roaring 20’s. The options of 3 dining experiences with each having a unique ambiance and menu variety really made me want to see first hand what Lena’s had to offer. We weren’t disappointed with our choice. Before going, I joined Lena’s fam club, downloaded the App. and also downloaded the OpenTable App. It was super easy getting a reservation for the time we wanted. We also earned a Free appetizer. We highly recommend Lena’s. We will dine there again when we visit our daughter again in May.

    Another visit to Lena’s loft, this time for a daddy daughter night with my daughter. There was live jazz music, which gave a nice ambience sat distant from the band but would have been too loud up close. Our dinner and the service was excellent as always, and we had a fun evening.

    I'm not into themed spots but started coming to Lena's during pandemic because they set up a massive tent out back and took good caution with service, allowing us to get out earlier and safer than others. Food is great and the upstairs is actually pretty neat. The 4 top tables are quite large so the overall experience is comfortable.... They don't squeeze you in so even when the place is busy, you at least feel comfortable anywhere they put you. Cocktails are good and the staff has always been top notch. Had a simple spaghetti w bolognese sauce which was really good. It's not a massive portion but you'll have room for the EXCELLENT Brussel Sprouts up front as an appetizer. The vibe changes but at the time of this review, it was a 30s jazz club. Music was good. It is a large room so it's loud. Not a complaint, just a note that this isn't where you go got a quiet dinner. Recommend you check it out. Classy without pretentious service.

    Restaurant didn’t look at my reservation. When I reserved on open table I noted that it would be an anniversary brunch. They sat us in the middle of the restaurant next to another couple. It took over 10 minutes for my server to come to us. At a lot the 7 minute mark someone came and said I’ll server will be over shortly. When my server did arrive I informed them that it was our anniversary and could she seat us in a more intimate location. Our server agreed and sat us in the perfect place. They were very slow. Everything took long to get to the table. I ordered chicken biscuits & gravy. They forgot the gravy. By the time my server returned my food was cold. They offered to bring me gravy to pour on my cold food. I declined. They offered to make me another dish, since my wife had already completed her meal, and they’d been so slow, again I declined. Worse dining experience I’ve ever had. Will not return, will not suggest.

    The food was adequate, but not for the price. The food was well overpriced for portion size and quality. The selection of local beer was notable, but didn’t compensate for the low value of the food to cost.

    We were really excited to eat here. However, the service was horrible. We ordered the spinach dip which was good, the cheese sticks were ok, Caesar salad had no dressing and the margarita pizza was nothing to be excited about. Aside for the food being mediocre, the service was horrible. I don’t drink and don’t drink soda so without any other choices, I ordered water. Which was only given to me in a small glass. I asked for a water with lemon and the server brought a small glass with ice and lemon. I asked repeatedly for a glass of water only to get my small glass refilled. When I asked for a larger glass I was told they only give larger glasses if you’re sitting outside. Aside from the water, it took forever to get our order taken , get serviced and to check out. This was super annoying and at this point I decided we would not be returning. I was upset because we were really excited to eat here and was really looking forward to a good night out.

    The vibe, ambience, and look of the place alone makes it worth going at least once. Customer service was perfect from host to server to waiter. Food was very good. I would give the food a 8.2/10 and the experience 10/10. My wife was able to take a huge bouquet of balloons in the spirit of valentine’s day so that was definitely the cherry on top.
