    The waitress was great. The dining area was fantastic. The food that I purchased was salty and the sauce was very thick. I decided not to eat it but I did bring it home. I told the waitress and she did say that she could take it off of my check but I declined. Next time that I go to eat there I will order something different because the place is wonderful I just did not like what I ordered. I did not order a drink because they were expensive.

    Food is always delicious. The trouble was with the drinks. The waiter did not seem to understand the request for a Manhattan (with bulliet rye) and an old fashioned (with Jamisons). They both came out looking exactly alike and the waiter assured us it was an old fashioned, which we knew wasn’t. They were both garnished with a dried fig instead of a cherry. We could have sent the old fashioned back but it was tasty. The real shock came with the bill. The “old fashioned” was $12.25 but the Manhattan was $23.25!! For Bulliet??? I have NEVER paid that much for a Manhattan, even with Whistle Pig Rye. RIDICULOUS! Never again.

    Our visit this time was a re-do from a horrible Christmas Day experience. I have to say, there was much improvement. The manager John was very accommodating and open to hearing any good or bad feedback we had. Our waitress was pleasant and efficient and the drinks were delightful. I highly recommend the Limoncello Martini. The food was delicious. We had the Parmesan garlic wings, the crab dip and the two sausage pizza options. Also, the atmosphere was wonderful. The current theme is very beautiful. We will visit again!

    celebrated a birthday dinner here, party of 8...we went early PM before the evening crowd so the place was half empty which was great for us! The décor of the venue was chic and luxe...the velvet couches and gold accented chairs and pillows are beautiful. The Food was fresh and delicious! Jimmy at the bar was nice and friendly as we had drinks to wait for our table. the only major compliant is the parking is horrible, very small garage that was full...valet option if you wish, but I went to find street parking and the neighborhood had signs all over that Lena's guest Do not park here...I was afraid to leave my car on the street, but I did and walked back 2 blocks to the venue. Add extra time to find street parking.

    Birthday, the manager on-site was flexible to accommodate the party inside due to the weather. However the service was very slow for food and drinks, and marking a reservation initially was very complicated due to many of restriction and policies the restaurant has for parties over 10/12 people.

    I brought a group in for dinner, as I have in the past. The new company policy/procedure for group check splitting is a real turn-off. The overall experience was great, but that very, very inconvenient policy has me rethinking future venues for group events. Maybe you simply don't want groups over 4?

    Lena’s never disappoints! Went for a friends bday dinner and the pizza is always the best! Tried two summer drinks and amazing, and topped it all of with a creme brûlée to share! No complaints on the food. Our server did his best managing hectic dinner with larger parties. And the manager Jonathan was great keeping us informed, and check in on us from time to time as well as answering any questions we had during our dinner. Will always come back to Lena’s!

    Idk if it’s an off night…but everything we ordered was legit unappetizing…we literally just didn’t eat it, but I’m not the type to send stuff back. Just paid the bill…my sisters dish had meat that tasted spoiled, the bolognese was giving “boyardee”…pizza was luke-warm and the waitress almost dropped it…most of the staff seemed like they don’t wanna be here bc they’re cleaning the tables with dry wipes…ambiance was ok minus the dripping ceiling from the rain, yet they still sat us near it… I was really looking forward to coming here for my bday today with my family, oh well…but definitely 1 out of 5 stars. Also…My sister told them it was my birthday and they put a candle in a donut she ordered for herself…

    Some of the seating places you away from the main area of thr restaurant (next to a bland wall in the corner) and limits your ability to enjoy the ambience. The food was okay- Lamb was mediocre and extremely fatty. Scallops were good.

    Lena's Oasis was nothing short of amazing. Great atmosphere, food, service, and drinks, what more can one ask for. If you love Instagrammable places, adding this spot to your list is a must. I've experienced the Velvet Speak Easy and I felt like I was in a scene of the Great Gatsby and I loved every second of it. The Oasis took us to a posh Island with perfect lighting, live trees and plants, with an easy Summer breeze. LOVED IT!!

    My reservation was for the loft but showed up at the main building where the patio was… I was never shown or offered to how to get to the loft. This was a date night so the ambiance was super critical, and was missed. I think it’s important if the app asked if you have a desired section then the restaurant should do much better at ensuring the reservation is met as requested.
