The food is tasty. The Yucca Bread is a bit too salty but that could just be my personal preference. Our only issue was that we went with our 5 yr old. She was a bit vocal about not having a children's menu. She did...More

We had an excellent experience at Lena, I would recommend ordering 2-3 dishes per person and it is moderately expensive, the atmosphere and staff were lovely, though the place has a balcony and a high ceiling so it is noisy. The food was a unique...More

The food and the service are good, however, the portions are really, REALLY small. I visited this place a couple of years ago and I have the impression that the portions have gotten smaller and prices bigger.

Description
Lena is a Latin American inspired upscale, casual restaurant with a fun, vibrant atmosphere, focused on sharing and communal dining. The name translates to "firewood", and a white oak, wood fired grill serves as a culinary focal point, offering a vast asado selection of grilled meats, seafood, and vegetables. Other offerings include tacos, featuring homemade corn tortillas, fresh baked empanadas, and other traditional dishes, spanning from South and Central America, Spain, and Mexico. The beverage program is well rounded, with wines from multiple well known and some lesser known producers, craft beers, innovative cocktails, and a wide array of tequila and mezcal.
