The ambiance and aesthetic is breathtaking. The server was OK. He wasn’t friendly but he wasn’t mean. He didn’t check on our table enough so there were extended periods of time where I needed things (refill, condiments, etc) and was left waiting. It was a Monday afternoon so the restaurant wasn’t busy. Also, I found it odd that gratuity was added to the bill for a party of 2 on a Monday afternoon. I actually think the server gets shorted that way. Finally, the one major downfall of this experience was exiting. There is a different exit from the entrance. There were no exit signs or instructions on how to exit. The elevator let me out inside of the car repair/emissions shop and there were no signs or directions on how to get out.

The food was really good but I wanted to go inside to the loft for pics and wasn’t able to. Was told it wasn’t open at that time but that was the main reason for going . If I do go back it’ll be after 4 when I can actually go inside

Atmosphere is nice here (we dined on the outdoor/oasis portion of the venue). Pizza was good, calamari not so good, and gelato was tasty. Salad was just average, nothing too special even with the grilled salmon on top. Will definitely go back to try some of their other offerings since the atmosphere is nice,

The decor is definitely nice. The food was nothing to write home about. My food came out Luke warm. The Prosecco seemed a bit to bitter which in turn made the drink not enjoyable and the food was bland. I had the leg of lamb with polenta it’s definitely missing something. It needs to be revamped.

We were initially seated in the main area but had to move as a large family could not or would not control their 5 small children, who were running around and screaming the entire time. (They never heard about teaching children to use their "indoor voice."} We asked to move but were given a table still close to the screamers. We finally asked if we could be seated in the Loft and were granted our request. The meal there was very pleasant.

This is a open high ceilings environment, a lot many colors around it , happy people but I little bit loudy. The table location was prime and I like a lot the service. The food was delivered very fast . The lasagna was delicious and the cheese table was amazing but needs to take care about couple spicy bites . And the Sangría was delicious , for the same price than 3 glasees order the Sangaree jar is worth it .

I’ve heard so many good things about BLOOM @ Lena’s and even saw wonderful pics dating back to the winter season. So I planned a Girls’ Night Out (Moms Edition) with some of my closest mom friends. We pretty much all ordered the seasonal Frosé with a lemon drop added and/or sangrias. For tried the spinach and crab dip for appetizers and got different salads; very fresh and not too heavy on the dressing. Majority of us ordered 10” pizzas, but two others ordered the lasagna and chicken Alfredo. All of us were pleased with the temperature, taste and portions; we all go to go boxes. When wrapping up we headed to the front to take pics on the infamous swings. It was so cute and I’m glad we got to experience it!

Lena’s is always great. I know restaurants are struggling with staff shortages, our meal was slow to arrive and came in pieces. But the food was delicious and we will come back without hesitation.

1. The spring decorations are amazing!
2. Drinks - We had peach rosé sangria, peach lemonade, and Fragola Bolle None of the drinks were a hit.
3. Appetizers - wings were just okay, crab dip was good, but the bread that comes with it is hard and tasteless
4. Entree - The waitress recommended the meatball & spaghetti over the pizza because the pasta is house-made. I wish I'd have gotten the pizza. The spaghetti was okay, but nothing to write home about. Lena's Burger and fried brussel sprouts were good. Seafood Arrabbiata was fine, but we asked the waitress if it comes with bread. She said no, but she's bring us some. The bread was very good, so we asked for more. Was surprised to see an $18 charge for the bread. Didn't mind paying for it, but wish it had been made clear that there is a charge.
5. The service was excellent for the most part. Everyone was polite and accommodating.
6. I forgot to get dessert.

I will definitely be back to see next season's decor, and will try the pizza.
