Table of 9 for my birthday party. Great food, ambiance, and drinks! I highly recommend the Brussel sprouts (we ordered several), and the pizza. Desserts were also yummy, we ordered the creme brûlée, cheesecake and donuts. Only downside is that it took awhile for us to get the last food we ordered and get the check. Other than that it was a wonderful experience with very nice servers!

Good food and service! However, most parking for the restaurant is used for vallet parking and garage was full. Also just see the total of the bill on electronic card machine but not details. Customers like to see their their receipts.

Booked a reservation in Lena's Oasis which was really nice (sans the bugs). The place was kept cool with giant fans and there was plenty of space. The peach rose sangria was great. Calamari and crab dip were delicious. The portion sizes were great and the sausage and peppers pizza was fantastic. Will return for happy hour soon.

Never this noisy. Service was quick,quick -slow-slow. Drinks took too long from 1st. Round to replenish. Waiter was very present at the start, then disappeared. Maybe short staffed but not good for us. Salmon w/Peal Cous Cous swimming in sauce. Cooked perfectly but ruined with swimming sauce. Wine by glass is overpriced.

Beautiful location. Friendly Service. Terrible food! Worst pizza of my life. They threw toppings on haphazardly. The bread was stale, the cheese was bad, they put too much basil on my pizza. The house cabernet was terrible too. Just bad food. The environment and service is good, but they truly need to step up the food quality!

We were unable to order mimosa flights because they ran out of glassware. The Frose’ machine was also on the fritz and we had to wait for our drinks or drink them melted.
Few places to take pictures. I’m not a fan of this summer theme interested to see what it will be in the fall.

Overall great experience for my birthday brunch. I made the reservations and stated that it was my birthday in the reservation. But I guess the server had forgotten. They could make the online reservation a little more transparent in which area of the restaurant you want to reserve. I was trying to reserve the Loft, but got the Oasis instead. I had tried to follow links from the Loft specific page but kept getting Oasis. It was still a nice experience.

Delicious food, beautiful atmosphere, great views, service was a little slow but not ridiculous, the noise was rather loud, probably because there were several groups celebrating. The floors are polished concrete which bounces the sound around. Overall great experience, just go when it's a little quieter (weekdays?).

Very impressed!!! Tiktok brought me when I saw the cherry blossom theme although it was no longer there it was still a great atmosphere. We sat in the large tent out back and I really loved out are seats were sort of blocked off from the others. It made me feel like I was V.I.P lol Out waiter so super nice and constantly came to check on us and making sure our food was what we expected. He also recommended a mix alcoholic drink that was soooooo good!

Price for the quality and amount of food seems to be too pricey for what's listed. I also had a strawb lemonade for a drink which was very watered down and had little to no flavor. Overall, I think the only thing that made it worth while was the decorations. I could have gone some else for better food with what I paid for.

Just okay. Pizza was not very flavorful unless you order something with a bunch of toppings. I.E., the sauce, cheese, and crust were pretty bland.

It took quite a while for one of our meals to come out. My husband was practically finished with his by the time my dish arrived. Not sure what the hiccup was. We come to Lena’s every few months and this is the first time this happened to us, so we won’t hold it against them.

Went here for brunch on a very hot day. They were very accommodating in getting my reservation moved indoors. The decor was beautiful, our server was super nice, and the food and drinks were tasty. Parking might be a slight challenge during a crowded time.

I have been there many times but tonight was not a good experience. We waited a long time for anyone to come to our table to ask for a drink. I asked for service twice. 20 minutes After ordering we were told they were out of STEAK. It was 6:45! Our dinner was okay but lacked anything special. I booked this for a birthday celebration. We didn’t even get dessert. Very disappointed in Lena’s tonight.

Live music was so loud, you could not have a conversation. We were sat at a table 5 feet from the performers. Too close!!!! Then it cost us $15 to park. With tip included. Never heard tell of A Restaurant when you are eating there charging you to park.
