Sat outside in the Oasis Tent. Our waitress’s attitude wasn’t all that, but she was still attentive. The food was really good! Garlic Parmesan wings were EVERYTHING! Flies were a big problem outside. We had to fight them off the whole time.

After figuring out what door to use to go in, a quick elevator ride took us to a beautifully decorated room. The nautical theme is clean and refreshing. Drinks, appetizers, entrees, and desert were great. Our waitress was on top of things. Can’t wait to return.

As so many businesses are experiencing right now, they were short staffed and even with a reservation we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated because they didn’t want to overwhelm any one server. Many tables were open but they wouldn’t seat us because of this issue. When we had the nerve to ask what the issue was, the hostess said because we were one minute past our grace period for our reservation time that she should’ve canceled our reservation to begin with. We were a few minutes late because the valet parking was short staffed & no one was immediately around to help with the car.

I do love the idea of the restaurant changing things up seasonally. It is a wonderful atmosphere. However, they need to do something with their overhead lighting. We had to ask them multiple times before the hostess would agree to let us change our table because a bright spot light was shining directly into the eyes of 2 out of the 4 of us causing us to have to shield our eyes in order to see the people at our table. I would say it was the equivalent of driving with someone’s bright headlights shining on you. Once this issue was resolved, we had a wonderful evening. Our server, George, was fabulous. The food was outstanding! I highly recommend their brussels sprouts, the polenta fries, the gnocchi and the arugula and prosciutto salad.

The ambiance & food was great! However there was a young fellow who was moving too fast in several instances which caused him to almost run into servers several times. Unfortunately he did end up knocking over my drinks.

This caused us to wait longer for the drinks to be re-made.
It wasn’t my waitress’ fault. She was extremely polite, friendly & professional.

We really like Lenas! This is our 3rd time there. We previously ate in the Oasis which I like better if weather is good. It was a bit noisy and cold in the loft Ocean 21. But we had a nice table w a couch. Service was excellent as was food and drink.

Pasta was delicious, but the pizza my friend got had honey on it and it was exceptionally sweet and not that good. A little honey would have been yummy, but the amount it had was overpowering.

Fabulous lunch of caprese paninis served by Elmer and staff. Excellent service, great food, amazing setting combine to make a lunch delightful. Good prices, too. The music could be a bit softer to allow for more table conversations. Once you go, you will go again!

We booked the Oceans 21 Experience and arrived to a full parking lot so we chose to valet (you are given a ticket to hand to your server and the fee is added to your check). The staff was accommodating (we had a party of 10), knowledgeable and attentive and everyone enjoyed their food. The restaurant was clean and provided adequate spacing for the patrons/parties that were dining. We definitely felt like we were being catered to and appreciated the separation provided by the different partitions throughout the space. Service was timely and although they indicate the table is reserved for 2 hours, we did not feel rushed. After dining in the Loft, we visited the Beer Garden and enjoyed some live music. The band even sang Happy Birthday.

Fabulous Sunday brunch menu with an Italian flair -- and the pizza here is also totally awesome. We've dined at OCEANS 21 twice, always with courteous and prompt service! It's a treasure of a place and a fabulous interior space (from someone who has been in commercial design more than 35 years).

The food was okay, I wouldn’t make a special trip for it but would go back if someone else wanted to. The service was extremely poor, I’m understanding to a certain extent but genuinely did not enjoy interacting with our server. We felt like we were not wanted there/ should have just left at time.

I Will not be coming back. The pizza was sub-par, similar to frozen pizza quality at 3x the price. I'm all for buying a $15-20 pizza, but I'm expecting quality Neapolitan style. This was not it. The Ceasar salad and crap dip were fine, but the pizza was such a letdown. The drinks also seemed to lack any real depth of flavor.

Not sure what all the hype is about! Pizzas were cold , found plastic in my pasta and food seemed overall tasteless. Also feta cheese in the beet salad was nonexistent.

Too noisy! Secondly, after the valet took my car, I was outside waiting on the arrival of my grandchildren when I was approached by a panhandler. I turned him down, so he approached a couple who did give him some money. I won’t bring my grandchildren back here because I don’t feel it is safe.
