I love the new Oasis at Lena’s, so much so that I invited a friend who lives in DC to drive out of the city to join me for dinner. It was not crowded, as it was a Tuesday night, yet the hostess sat us next to the emergency exit next to the giant tent air machine with a direct view of 7/11. We didn’t ask to move tables because we get it, COVID, but why seat paying customers in the worst seat in the house on a slow night? I don’t blame the hostess, but the restaurant should really consider removing that table from the rotation on slow nights. I did not have the Lena’s oasis experience I was hoping for, especially after spending almost $200.

Great value for bloody mary's and mimosas for brunch! The food came out quick, but the potatoes were luke warm and the bacon undercooked. Everything else tasted great. Lot's of space is available under the tent, so socially distancing while eating out is not a problem.

We have eaten at Lena's before and really loved it. This visit was a whole different story. We appreciate the challenges restaurants are experiencing during COVID, and we have seen several make a shift really well. We love that Lena's has made an effort to create a lovely outdoor space with the "Oasis".

That said, the service was so slow and the food subpar that if this had been our first visit, it would be our last. For that large an outdoor space, they should have at least a basic bar set up. It took nearly 20 minutes for our drinks to arrive, and one of our pizzas was cold and the meatballs were so overcooked that they were like hockey pucks. Kudos for them for making that right by removing it from our check.

However, the whole experience was just...off. Hoping for a shift back to better service and food as things improve in the COVID world.

We had some delicious , fun drinks from the new spring menu and a few appetizers before dinner. The prosciutto pizza was just okay and the French fries were cold but the lobster pasta was really good. We love the new Bloom decor and always enjoy the ambiance at Lena’s. Tonight we were charged $10 for valet parking because everything else was full. That will have us rethinking another night there but we will return.

First, the food at Lena’s is always excellent. We were disappointed with the outdoor eating area, however (the tented Oasis). It was very chilly in the tent, to the point that none of us could take our jackets off. The chairs were also quite uncomfortable, and the music was loud to the point that members of our party couldn’t hear each other. Service was friendly but slow. We will stick with takeout until we feel ready to eat in the main restaurant again.

Good pizza! We had the Di Carne and another pizza with chicken and ranch. We ordered mozzarella sticks for appetizer and they were great as well! Service was quick! When I booked I had 3 options and was unsure what each entailed so we went with the pub area. We had 2 large pizzas for 3 adults and a child and it was plenty. We would definitely order from them again!

Other restaurants in the area should look to lenas as an example of how to operate in the covid environment. We ate in the winter lodge area (upstairs), and felt really safe. The staff wiped the elevator buttons and then pressed for us. They bring hand sanitizer to your table. They do use menus rather than QR code’s, which we have used in the tent (oasis) and tap room (mail level inside). The food is always great. The beer menu has a great selection, but I find it a bit overpriced. That said, they must have invested a small fortune to have covid friendly options. So, I am happy to pay a little extra. The staff are also very friendly with kids. I am excited to go back and see the spring concept as the winter lodge phases out next week. Well done!
