This restaurant is wonderful for date nights, special occasions, or just treats. The salmon was the best I've ever had in my life. We went for graduation dinner and it honestly could not have been better.

It took me a while to realize this was a restaurant. You have to walk down a long hallway from N. Lamar to get to the host station. The food here is excellent. I also enjoy getting a drink at the bar with a friend. You won't be disappointed!

We took a candidate to dinner at Lenora's on a Sunday night. They were pretty busy, but by no means full. We only ordered entrees, but the wait was pretty long. There was no acknowledgement of the delay by anyone. Our food was good for all in the party, but the wait was not ideal especially when we were entertaining... More

Their recipe for spaghetti is from the owners Italian mother. It is wonderful. All of their pastas are really good-- the best in Oxford.

Family met old friend there for dinner. Elegant but warm and comfortable. Good variety of classic Italian, closer to finer dining, bill for four of us was $155 including 4 entree's, appetizer, 2 desserts and a modest bottle of Riesling German white wine ($20). Very nice for couples and older families. Perfect for special occasions.

Good atmosphere. Bar good. Big crowd. But shortcomings with restaurant. Some entrees right on. Others a complete miss. Go with the duck. Excellent. Service with our original waiter deplorable. Had to say something to manager to get a new waiter. Would not expect a service issue of this type with restaurant that is supposed to have type of reputation its... More

Had a great meal with family while attending freshman orientation for our son at Ole Miss. Filet was perfect. Our son had the Shrimp and Crawfish Mac and practically licked the bowl. Great, friendly service...but it's Oxford, should I expect anything less? Well done. Looking forward to a return visit.

We had two wonderful experiences at Lenora's over graduation weekend. With a small party we were able to be seated relatively quickly. The food was hot and very good. Great wait staff who seemed well versed on the menu. We had wonderful cocktails from their extensive bar menu. The day of graduation was slightly disappointing as the menu was limited... More

We were in town over the weekend for Ole Miss graduation, and our Granddaughter had reservations for 7 at Lenora's. The service was just so-so, but they were crowded. I agree with one of the other posts that the spot that we were put was about the size of a small closet. My wife had the salmon, and she really... More

If I could give this a 3 1/2 rating I probably would. The food here is very good, a little on the pricy side, but good. It's one of the only few restaurants in town that actually takes reservations. On one of our visits, our reservation which had been made only a week prior had been moved or forgotten about,... More
