Sat outside in beautiful undercover setting. Food came out super fast and was delicious. Drinks were amazing I need to find out how they make the wine. We had a stroller and they were very accommodating of moving the table to make space. Would highly recommend!

I love going to CH with friends to catch up over dinner and a tasting! Gianluca is fantastic. If you don’t know what wine you like, you need to go see him! He makes great recommendations. And Lily as our server was equally as great! She was super attentive. We were starving so she made a recommendation to order the arancini balls as she knew they’d come out fast. They sure did and not to mention how tasty they were! I always enjoy a wine flight with my dinner and I can’t seem to not order the potstickers too. I enjoyed the crab and lobster bisque for the first time! I’ll definitely be ordering that again. I can’t wait to go back with more friends as there is always more catching up to do :)

This is an excellent restaurant with a great menu. I enjoyed the eggs Benedict with crab cakes while my wife enjoyed her avocado toast with egg on top. I recommend the biscuits since they’re huge and tasty. We’ll go back!

My daughter and I went to Lena's for dinner 'in the tent' to say farewell to Lena's Oasis - an important and much visited spot during the pandemic. Our dinner was delicious as ever and the service top notch as always. I fine way to say farewell to the Oasis, but we'll be back to Lena's soon.

Had a fantastic experience at Medium Rare in Arlington! Sat outside on the patio, and enjoyed a wonderfully prepared dinner from the bread to the hot fudge sundae for dessert. The steak was cooked medium, hot off the grill, and topped with portobello mushrooms. Outstanding! Had the Pineapple Express cocktail…actually had two…very good! Service was impeccable. 3 cocktails, 2 dinners, mushrooms, hot fudge sundae.. $140.00 with the tip…. We will be back!
