    We used to come here a lot… even during Covid. Things seem to have changed. Service was unusually slow and they were not busy. Also need a way to get the tent cooler. Even with fans it was extremely hot and it was not hot temperature. Food was okay. Nothing spectacular. Again, maybe an off night but things have fine downhill. Will not be coming back in a while. There are too many other places in that area that are better

    Two of us dined at Lena's for lunch. We had an issue with one of the dishes being undercooked, which resulted in brief attention by the manager. The dish was replaced with a fully cooked item, however we were a little surprised the manager never returned to check on us especially given there were few other patrons in the restaurant at that time. Our server was helpful and very courteous. I believe this was just an "off" day, as I've never experienced a poorly prepared meal at Lena's before, but we were definitely a bit disappointed.

    Lena’s Velvet & Rye is such a beautiful setting. I’ve been during the day and in the evening. The evening times it dim and allows for a sexy ambiance. The food is delicious. We went yesterday for brunch. Daniella was our server and she was amazing! A must try and bring your camera for some super cute pics.

    Pizza was good but toppings were way overpriced. While white citrus sangria was good, it barely has any alcohol. Crap dip had little to no crab, essentially cream cheese dip. Calamari was ok but there were a few pieces of chicken mixed in. Overall, very disappointed with Lena's after all I've heard. Would not recommend it to friends and doubt I'll ever return.

    We had dinner at Lena's (Oasis) for Father's Day, and we left after the appetizers. The floor was disgusting (food around every table), the menu's weren't collected, the mozzarella was hard, dried out and yellow, there were annoying flies and the music was super loud. We will not be coming back.

    Maxwell, our waiter, was great! And the ambience of the Oasis was wonderful! And most of our food was very good but the pizza was very underwhelming. It was a very doughy underbaked crust and the sauce and toppings were flavorless. It did not look or taste like a pizza from a pizza oven -- very disappointing.

    My only issue is that the music was loud making it hard to hear our soft spoken waitress. We also had a spill at our table that was very obvious and yet many staff members acted like they didn’t notice. Had to flag someone down even though we were seated right by the servers station.

    I had many store bought frozen pizza which tasted much better. The spaghetti sauce was so salty that it was un eatable. I had to pick the spaghetti out from the sauce and brush the sauce away with another fork and yet still way too salty!!!

    The food was fine, but the rest of the experience was terrible. The waitress had an attitude from the beginning - as if she was going out of her way to serve us. We asked for plates and utensils for the rest of our party (we were 6 and they provided us with 4 plates and 3 utensils), and it took 15 minutes to get them. The live music in the beer garden was way too loud so much so that we could not hear one another. The worst part of the evening was when the cockroaches came out and were swarming around the patio. We tried to ignore the cockroaches, but more and more came out and came right under our table that we could not take it anymore. We got up and went inside. Inside, the workers were obviously closing up and looked annoyed that we had come inside. We asked the waitress to just bring over our check and that took more than 15 minutes - again, with attitude. We even mentioned to more than three different restaurant staff that there were cockroaches outside and NONE of them batted an eye or even apologized.

    Cute place to take pictures, food was awesome but that’s it. Service was below sub par, server took our order and never came back. Had to get up to ask where she was for things we needed. Made sure to note it was my brothers birthday, not one staff member acknowledged it. I went to the host stand to confirm what they did for birthdays (supposed to be a free desert that comes out with a candle on it, per our server) bowl of ice cream came out with the food runner still holding the kitchen ticket in his hand, auctioning it off to our table. No candle, no spoons. Made it very clear to our server that because she wasn’t present, we were ready to leave and in a hurry. Just to have to wait another 6 minutes for our boxes and the checks. We were super excited to check this place out, as we’ve seen it on social media and are visiting from out of town. Chose this place to be where we spent our money and share a special 18th birthday, just to be wildly disappointed. I waited at the host stand after our meal to try to speak with a manager, but again, nobody was present so we decided to just leave (keep in mind this place wasn’t even 1/4 filled, basically empty) would never recommend to anyone.
