I had a wonderful time there celebrating my bestfriend birthday. Only concern was the limited parking and seeing the frozen compartments that held food and ice compartments for the restraurant in the garage area. We watched a gentleman come out with a grocery cart to get food out of the freezer and go back into the restaurant. I am not sure if that good for the health environment of the restraurant itself. I would say eventually this restaurant will need more space for parking and storage of goods as well. Overall, I liked the service, food, and atmosphere as well. We had dinner in the Oasis Tent which was located outside the restaurant.

The food was good. I just had chicken Alfredo. Appetizers Calamari and crab dip. The oasis was great and the service was amazing. My only complaint is that when we got the bill the waiter gave us two different checks. Jose the waiter gave us a the check with the gratuity choices and came back with a second check with the gratuity added on. I don’t mind tipping but let’s be clear the lies was unnecessary when he said it was mandatory. And I still gave him more than the suggested amount.

Dined in the Loft - a really interesting space - and would definitely make that choice again. Great service. Great food. My only suggestions would be 1) to turn the music volume down 1 or 2 levels and 2) add something to the ceiling to absorb sound

Service was horrible. I witnessed my waitress greet another table with enthusiasm whereas she greeted my friends and I with a bit of aggravation. (My friend and I are back. The other table was white.) Then they sat us in the corner where employees were coming out the doors. I have been a server for over 3 years and I know that is not how customer service works.

We visited Lena's from out of town. The experience was a mixed bag. To start, there was a bug in one of our glasses. We asked one of the wait staff for a new glass and all he did was refill the same glass with fresh water, bug still intact. We had to get someone else to remedy the situation. Our waiter seemed to be preoccupied with other things because he was completely inattentive. After half an hour of sitting at our table, all we had to show for it were two glasses of lemonade while we waited for our order to be taken. We had to eventually flag down a hostess to take our order while our waiter was still M.I.A. Throughout the meal, our waiter was nowhere to be found. He stopped by our table, at most just once, to check on things. We had ordered a martini which took forever to come. The same thing happened with dessert--it seemed like it took forever also. We noticed other patrons that arrived after us managed to leave before us because their service was much more prompt than ours. When we got the bill, it all made sense. They automatically slap the gratuity on the bill, so there's no incentive for the wait staff to be expeditious. Overall, the food was decent--not bad but not amazing. As long as you are aware that the service could be hit-or-miss, then it's a decent experience overall.

Hi, Let me say this; Lena’s was Everything I expected & More!!!! I had been seeing so many social media videos of what they had to offer & I was excited to see for myself. So initially I wanted to dine in on my actual Birthday (a Friday Evening) but tables were Booked so we decided to book for a Monday Afternoon…3:15 to be exact. Due to traffic, we were running about 10min late, so I called to make them aware & left a vcml…Once we arrived I walked to the wrong entrance by mistake….Okay so it was Kinda rough in the beginning but we finally made it to the Beautiful Elevator & checked in….although we were 15min behind schedule, the Hostess made sure we were able to be seated to enjoy the rest of my Birthday Celebrations….

Now here it goes:

DECOR: 10/10 It’s BEAUTIFUL!!!! Really Chic like…(We dined in Full Bloom)
FOOD: Crab Dip, Kids Chicken Strips, Garlic Parmesan Fries, Margherita Pizza ALL 10/10….Garlic Parmesan Wings 9/10….Lasagna 6/10

Really Enjoyed myself…I plan on going back for Date Night under the Tent. My husband loved it…My kids loved it. My daughters especially!!!

THANK YOU LENA’S…

This is a phenomenal place to eat. It's like being temporarily eating in a place to help you escape everyday life. The food and beverages were delicious and the service and vibe is excellent. This is great for brunch, a meal w/ your friends or a date, a celebration, etc. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it took forever to seat me. Once I was seated, it was smooth sailing and I highly recommend it.

I love Lenas food but my first experience with Loft was hard. Front desk seemed very hassled and so many people were waiting. Restaurant was so so noisy. Our waiter was great though. He was incredibly attentive and understanding and told me management is working on noise level. Food was very good. I was surprised by 10$ Valet. I will try Loft again with hope for better experience.
