Came here on a busy Saturday night. Loud but fun atmosphere. The menu is small plates and good for sharing. Lots of unique dishes but portions are small. Chimichurri sauce is divine.

We ofter go and bring a group of friends so we can share many dishes, we love so many things on the menu here. Since we are gluten free, it's always great to have a big selection of foods we want to eat. Lena delivers!

Excellent wine list, creative menu, gorgeous ambiance, and top-notch service. Beautiful bar and overall look and feel. A great choice for quiet conversation and excellent food/drinks on South Broadway.

We are low carb people so a Latin restaurant doesn't always make sense. However we ordered their mixed meat plate and mushrooms. Everything was delicious!! We had this with red wine- very generous pour. Our server was fantastic. I wish I could replicate this meal...More

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.
