This experience was INCREDIBLE to say the least. The service was awesome, kind workers and the owner was very pleasant. The food was exclusive, exquisite and so perfect. Dessert was incredible as well. Definitely a perfect date night or for a special occasion.
We usually have a good experience, but our server tonight, Maria, seemed like she couldn’t care less about us and frequently disappeared for long stints. We had to ask another, much busier waiter for more water etc because she was nowhere to be found. When we did ask for stuff like more water or Parmesan cheese for our pizza, she seemed annoyed.
Hi Amanda, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and sharing your experience with us. We take pride in providing our guests with the best dining experience possible and it seems we fell short during your recent visit. We have shared this information with our management team. Thank you again and we do hope you will give us another try.
My family's favorite every day restaurant. Daughter and I loved our pizza and I tried my wife's Chicken Parm, which was excellent.
Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave the kind words! We are delighted to know your family enjoyed our dishes, especially our pizza and Chicken Parmigiana. We look forward to having you again soon.
A slightly overpriced restaurant with good food. The atmospherics suggest the restaurant is uncertain about its identity---for example, super loud old rock music, TONS of children and very dark lighting. Is it a bar? A pizzeria? Also, our waiter forgot about us at the end, kept us waiting 20 minutes for the check, even though at the start we were swarmed upon by two managers in addition to our sever. A confusing experience overall.
Hi. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We like to think of ourselves as a neighborhood restaurant that serves amazing Neapolitan-style pizzas, plus a wide selection of craft beers from local breweries. We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed your dishes, but disappointed that we fell short in the service category. We will share this information with our management and hope that you’ll give us another opportunity to impress you with our level of service.
We LOVE Lenas. Every new visit we are never disappointed. We love bringing friends and family here, everyone leaves loving it too.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us the lovely words! We look forward to having you and your family again soon.
Great b day experience for my daughters 16th Birthday with friends :)
Thank you for the lovely review, Maria! We are thrilled to know your daughter had a wonderful birthday and look forward to seeing you again soon.
This was our first-time to Lena's and it was a wonderful surprise! A great neighborhood find. The gnocchi and eggplant Parmesan is EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD! We will go back just for those two dishes. The spaghetti pasta, which the make fresh, is also worth the trip. The pizza is very good, but not on par with some of its other dishes. Great place. We will return.
Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed everything we have. to offer and look forward to hosting you again soon.
This was the second time we visited Lena's and we just love it. Great rock music and inviting decor. The food is fantastic
Hi Kevin, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are thrilled to know you enjoyed our atmosphere and the dishes you tried. We look forward to hosting you again soon.
Excellent garden frittata! Very nice restaurant. Will definitely return.
Thank you for the kind words, Karen!
Lena’s is by far the best wood fired pizza joint in Alexandria. I recommend the wings as an appetizer and a Caesar salad alongside your pizza. You can’t go wrong with any pizza, but I tend toward the specialties like the Diavola, Korean BBQ or clam. Expect a loud, lively atmosphere, excellent bartenders, and exceptional cuisine.
Hi Katherine, thank you for taking the time to leave us the kind review! We hope to see you again soon.
Our waiter, Mark, was OUTSTANDING. We will be back for sure.
Thank you for the kind words! We will make sure to pass along the kind sentiments and look forward to having you again soon.
We had a wonderful brunch with friends and were not rushed out. We spent 2 hours chatting and catching up. The manager came by to check with us in a positive manner and invited us back as we were leaving. Lena's is a gemming for us.
Hi Stanley, we appreciate you taking the time to leave us the lovely words! We are delighted to hear you had excellent service during your time with us and look forward to having you again soon.
The food was amazing and the service was great! We will be back for sure.
Thank you for the kind words, Stacy! We hope to see you again soon.
Great service from the waitress. The timing of food arrivals was a bit off. My pizza arrived long before eggplant parm. My pizza and both salads were fantastic! Eggplant parm was good, but not “great.” Will definitely go back for pizza.
Hi, thank you for taking the time and leaving us a review! We appreciate the kind words and sentiments for our staff. We will make sure to pass along this information along to the team and hope to see you again soon.
I liked it ok, food was ok, but nothing to write home about; the price for food was exorbitant for what we ordered for lunch, $80 for two people and the servings were small. Nothing on its "Restaurant Week" menu, which is why we went, appealed to us, so we ordered off of the regular menu. We figure this place must be for tourists who don't know the area or about the bounty of other options in Old Town Alexandria with much better tasting food and reasonable prices. Service was good and the restaurant had a nice layout. However, being a local, I most likely won't be returning.
Thank you for taking the time and leaving us a review. We take all matters like this seriously and will make sure to pass this along to the team.
Never can go wrong with the garlic bread and pizza.
Our out of town guests LOVED it and can’t wait to come back again to try other wonderful menu options!
We were looking for gluten-free pizza in Alexandria after visiting Mount Vernon and found Lena’s. The staff was outstanding, especially our waiter. Happy Hour with $5 martinis and wings plus $10 pizzas made Lena’s a real find! The Parmesan wings were hot and crispy. We really liked both the New England pizza and the meatball pizza. The GF pizza crust could use a little work because it was very thin so got soggy fast, but about half of the specialty pizzas are offered GF. Loved Lena’s for HH.
Food was great and the service was awesome.
We lingered for three hours over a leisurely holiday lunch and reunion of old friends, yet we never felt rushed. All of our needs were met promptly but the service was not intrusive. This was my first visit to Lena's, though I'm already a fan of some of the other restaurants in this group (Vola's, The Majestic). This was a good experience. I'd recommend Lena's to a friend, and I look forward to visiting again.
Loved the pizza, salad and service. Ambiance was quite festive as well.
Thank you for taking the time and leaving us the kind words! We hope to see you again soon.
