I loved the vibe of Lena’s in Full Bloom. Nice decor and great social distancing. I had the cheesecake which was really good. I wasn’t feeling the entree. I had spaghetti with the giant meat ball. It came out quick so it definitely didn’t seem like it was made to order. The portion was a lot as well. I ended up ordering a pizza to go because I wasn’t satisfied with dinner. The pizza was ok. The wings are good, could use more seasoning. The crab dip wasn’t hot but was good and the bread that accompanied was partially burnt. Drinks were awesome though. I’d come back but probably wouldn’t get pasta.

This place is awesome! I will return and try all three rooms. I ate in the Loft at Lena's. The food was quick, hot and tasty. Really good portion sizes. The servers were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable of the menu and drinks. The ambiance of the room and décor were superb. Great place to take pictures. I briefly went to the Oasis at Lena's just to check the décor and that looks great as well. I will try the Oasis next. Highly recommend dining here!

Italian food is usually hard to mess up, but this was decidedly subpar when compared to other places I’ve been. The spaghetti and meatball tasted like chef boyardee, the risotto was gluey and flavorless. The drinks were great though

After a year of not seeing some my girl friends, I decided to host a surprise bday party for one of our wonderful wonderful friend. Everything about the ambiance to the service to the food was absolutely amazing. Our night together was more than I had hoped for and it was the perfect restaurant to do it- with its super extra covid safe precautions implemented. Thank you to all the workers of Lena’s for all your hard work!

This was our first time to Lena’s! We loved the Oasis. The tables were spaced out & it felt safe. The lighting and decor was very nice! The service & food was great! We’ll definitely be back!

Not only was this a special night out for my Mum’s 70th birthday, it was her first time dining inside (and only my 3rd) since the pandemic began.

The decor of the Loft at Lena’s made for an extra special dinner but the table spacing and openness of the space made us comfortable being indoors which was amazing.

We’re still not ready for regular indoor dining but Lena’s made us feel comfortable for this extra special occasion.

I get that it is covid and things are tough. BUT. My friend was almost done with her dinner by the time mine came and we felt mostly ignored through out.
Tasty food.
Love the Blossom theme.

My waiter Brandon (I think that was his name) was amazing! He was very nice, made sure we had what we needed, and never left our cups empty. The host were also amazing. I never got their names but they brought us a baby high chair without us even asking!

We sat in the Oasis tent area. The ambiance is so cool. There is a great deal of space between all the tables so it was easy to social distance. The good was great and came quickly.

We booked a table at the last minute not knowing what to expect but when we arrived we were shocked at how well the place was decorated (we were seated in the loft). The staff was incredibly welcoming and the manager generously offered us a complimentary glass of champagne as we sat on their SWINGS waiting for a table. The decorations were over the top, really phenomenal. The food was excellent as well but I would go back just for the environment. A+

The music was so loud, that the other guests were then speaking very loudly to hear each other at their own tables. Even our waiter apologized for feeing like he was yelling at us, because he had to in order to be louder than the music. It was just overwhelming and took away from enjoying the full experience.

Had a really good time meeting up with a friend! The waiter, Tommy, would check up on us a good amount, but not too much. He was helpful in recommending food and drinks. Fantastic experience and definitely plan on going back again.

It’s amazing mostly because of the decor- we had a reservation and were early but weren’t seated until an hour and a half after ... but other then that, highly recommend!
