My guest and I had the most wonderful experience ever, from the food to the drinks, atmosphere, the amazing customer service. EVERYTHING!

The waiter was amazing, he didn’t miss a beat and was very patient with us. I felt like we was all over the place with ordering, because we was a huge party but he made it work, got everyone’s order right and just the wonderful customer service. I can’t wait to come back for the wings and pizza which are my favs. Thanks again for the wonderful experience.. it was well appreciated!!

We’ll be back.

First let me say, Omar in the Oasis is beyond amazing. Unfortunately open table didn't let them know we wanted a regular table (not a high top) so we had some hurdles but when you tell you Omar was on point when it came to making sure my aunts birthday was amazing. He checked every areas to see where he could place us for comfort. Offered different chairs for the high top and eventually at the end provided us with a larger table. The ambiance was wonderful, staff was amazing and attentive. Omar made sure he visited us frequently and the night was officially better because of the time and care he took into our night.

Our reservation was for 8:45 and when we got there it took a while for our waitress to take our drink order and longer to bring them out. 2 couples of our party had ordered bottles of wineand by the time they brought out the drinks it was 9:45. As soon as we poured our wine, the manager came to our table and basically told us to finish our drinks in 15 minutes. I understand that it’s the law right now, however we should have been informed of this as soon as the waitress came to take our order. ( an hour before we got served our drinks). Also, they seemed to be out of everything we tried to order. They did bring out a couple of plates of cheeses, olives and salami. But the fact that none of us got the appetizer we ordered, didn’t leave a good impression. But the food was very good and the ambiance was beautiful.

Atmosphere in Tent dining area was festive since it was Valentines Day. Servers were attentive and answered all questions asked.

We ordered drinks and food which were great. We ordered a second round of drinks after our meak. Unfortunately one drink had a fruit fly floating in it. Thankfully, the Server and Manager quickly came over to take care of the drink and removed it from our tab.

Overall great experience and will return soon. Thank you.

My wife and I have previously been to Lena’s (pre covid) and have enjoyed every bit (sitting outside in the summer, the service, the food, etc). It’s been one of our to-go spots to say the least.

I was curious on how the experience would differ with the whole pandemic but the addition of the winter lodge and the oasis’s seemed very inviting and we weren’t wrong.

The oasis experience was great! It was top notch for outdoor dining especially in the midsts of winter. It was very warm and cozy, pulling us away from the wet and icy outdoors. My only con was that the metal seats were uncomfortable and moved to a table with a bench option as the benches had a soft pillow to sit on but otherwise the service was prompt and the food was delicious.

We will definitely be back to try the winter loft.

Kinda hard to enjoy an $140 meal when the place is so cold you have to keep on a heavy coat and rush to finish so you can get back to your vehicle to warm up . I’ll pass next time .

Parking very limited and those that are available, have extremely tight spaces. Had to leave building to go into a different entrance to use bathroom. Only 2 bathrooms, shared by men and women, for the restaurant
