Very enchanted outdoor tent set up behind Lena's actual restaurant. Fairy lighting, lots of space and dividers between tables, plants, overall a safe and delightful atmosphere. Has Lena's usual excellent pizza oven pizzas, homemade pasta, salads and other delights.
Half price wine Wednesday is always a pleaser.

What a creative way to eat outdoors even in heavy rain. Huge space covered with white tent, tons of tropical plants & safe seating! We truly enjoyed our salad, pizza & wine.

If you need a simple & specific review. "Be there or be square" Now that I divulged my age I will say, Have been there 4 times in the last month. I have taken my family to lunch and dinner. Food has always been great. Hoping the Oasis will be able to stay. Of all the places in the Alexandria area, their outdoor COVID plan is the best. Go enjoy .

I feel very safe eating at Lena's Oasis. My suggestion for improvement was that there was a lot of noise from a loud fan. That has not been the case in the past.

The dining experience they have going on there is very innovative in this COVID era. We chose to sit outside under the misters, but were disappointed that management turned off the listing machines when the sun went down despite the temperature still being well above 90°. Thought the last few minutes were a disappointment, over all it was a good experience.

Thanks so much for joining us and we're so happy to hear that the misters help make your visit more enjoyable. In our experience, once the sun goes down, it tends to get very wet under the misters so we turn them off. That said, we'll definitely review this with the team to ensure that they don't get turned off prematurely moving forward. Thank you for your feedback!

It was great to visit Lena’s Oasis! We have done take out a few times since the start of Virginia’s stay-at-home orders but the new Oasis annex was a fantastic outdoor dining option and we look forward to coming back.

I have been reading about this place for a while now. What an excellent job executing the “oasis” for chic outdoor dining in the time of Covid!

We started with a giant meatball, and tuna carpaccio and paired with a salad both could have been meals themselves! My husband was very happy with his clams and linguine, I got the gnocchi , and we got a side of brussels sprouts: more than enough food for both of us and plenty of leftovers! The cocktails were on point as well. I had the limoncello martini and hubby had one of the specialty cocktails. We finished out meal with the passion fruit mousse cake: perfect way to end the meal as it was light and not overly sweet!

We will definitely go back to try the pizza!

Nice brunch w/my daughter at Lena's Oasis. Her alfredo was very good, and my omelet w/salad was fresh and light -- only $10 too. One disappointment was a very average bloody mary. No celery or anything but tomato mix and a slight amt of vodka. My daughter's white sangria was very good.

Did not like the seating where four tables are around structure. It put me too close (within 6 feet) of other diners. I would not sit there again,

Trying out Lena’s new outdoor socially tented ‘Oasis’ with my wife and 4yr old daughter. Great, open and airy space with all dining tables appropriately socially distanced. A great new setting making dining possible during these difficult times, with the great food, and service we know and love at Lena’s. We had a great time and will be back.

I really like the outside seating arrangements. The service was perfect, from the hostess to the waiter (top notch). Being a native New Yorker we take pizza seriously. The pizza was pretty good but the dough was a little dry. Not saying it was bad but NYC has spoiled me.

The transformation into an "oasis" was remarkable. The entire setting was very comfortable and green. The greenery and the gauzy dividers gave customers a lot of privacy, while still keeping the patio open and airy. We thoroughly enjoyed the brunch, and will return for brunch or dinner.
