Have been here before on super busy football weekends and food was hit or miss. This visit with students on break and during holiday season, it was a slim crowd. But nice ambiance and the food was wonderful this go round. Wife had "ravioli of the day" - sausage- and it was delicious. I had seared duck breast and it... More

We were in Oxford on a gameday weekend. A seasoned Ole Miss fan made reservations at Lenora's 3 weeks in advance, which was a good thing because the restaurant was slammed. Our reservation was honored. Our server was very good although it did take time for the food to get out of the kitchen (to be expected on such a... More

Yes, sometimes you wait a bit...but always worth it. The locals' favorite, this place is always packed - great bar scene! Love the ravioli and steaks....warning! Strong drinks are served here! One of the tops in Oxford.

I love Oxford, and I love the square. This restaurant will not get my business again. The atmosphere was miserable as we were seated in a room that was similar to the size of my walk in closet and was sorely in need of an update. It felt dirty and was poorly decorated. The staff receives one star. Our waiter... More

We entered restaurant- were asked if we had reservation- maybe 4 tables were filled. We were seated. Water was poured & bread & butter was brought to table. Not a word was said! After 10 minutes, we asked for waiter! About 7 waiters walking all around us, but ignoring us. Ordered - my wedge salad was filled with rusty lettuce.... More

I love this restaurant and have been here many times. There is not a large menu selection, but there is a variety and everything is good. Excellent steaks!

My family loves Lenora's restaurant on the square in Oxford Mississippi. The food is delicious. I recommend the steaks, salmons and salads. The wedge salad is one of our favorites. There is a great cozy atmosphere. The service is excellent. We always get a reservation no matter what the date.

Pleasant and pleasing meal with excellent service in a comfortable ambiance - a Thurs. eve. in a college town. Excellent location. Two of us had the red drum fish. An o K fish overly seasoned, ditto the begins. One diner had a made to order vegetable combination. She was happy but agreed it was over seasoned - especially bad was... More

Once again enjoyed all the busy action at Lenora's before the LSU football game. Steak and salad wonderful, mixed drink very weak for $7.00. go with a beer if you can.

Located in the space formerly occupied by L & M Restaurant, Lenora's redecorated and changed the menu. The seating capacity has been increased, without sacrificing comfort. Although not able to beat John Currence's City Grocery, it compares favorably. I had the seared duck breast, which was deboned, sliced and cooked to a medium temperature, at my request. This was preceded... More
