A word from London Lennies
Owned and operated by the Barnes Family since 1959, London Lennie’s has evolved from a quintessential fish-n’-chips shop to the premier seafood restaurant in Queens. London Lennie’s is notorious for the best in fresh, local seafood selected daily at the world-famous Fulton Fish Market. This leading seafood restaurant hosts the area’s finest raw bar and was honored with the 2007 & 2008 Wine Enthusiast Award of Distinction and the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence from 2007 through 2012.

Diner Reviews
  • "The food was wonderful, service superior and overall experience very high. However, the Pina Colada was terrible, which surprised me. It was Ice with Cream, no liquor taste at all. Another member of my party ordered one earlier when she sat down. The same thing. Since it was a different batch, it seems they do not make good mixed drinks, which surprised me. For a place like this, I am amazed they make weak mixed frozen drinks. This needs to be fixed."

  • "London lennies is an old fashioned fish restaurant in the best sense if the word. Everything is fresh, and well made. There is enormous variety but nothing too fancy. "
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "I've never been disappointed with the meal at LL's. The chef consistently gets it right. You can always count on the freshest seafood, prepared creatively or simply depending on your mood that day, at a fair and reasonable price. The cole slaw is the best I've had since Tony Romas on Crossbay Blvd closed."

  • "My dining companion ordered a single serve glass of sparkling wine. The glass was chipped on half of the area where you would drink. If he had drank out of the glass he would have cut his lip. We notified the waitress who changed up the glass but no apologies or anything. She didn't replace the wine. She just poured it into a new glass.....the food was fantastic which is the only reason I would go back. How was she to know if there was glass in his wine? He didn't bother to drink it even though we paid for it. The service was amateurish."

  • "We have eaten at LL in the past and were very happy to go back. The seafood is excellent! We like to go a bit early on Saturday night as not to have it as crowded and there is a bigger selection of tables. I had the red snapper whole with thai dressing. Very tasty! My husband and I shared the mussels with leek and sausages as an app. The mussels were very sweet and mild and the sauce was light."

  • "The best seafood I've had in a very long time. It is not budget friendly but you absolutely get what you pay for. The tables are positioned close together (not unlike most places) we could hear the conversations of the guests next to us and the table next to them. These patrons were not being loud we were just that close. We were not talking much because the food was so good. We had several munch filled silent moments. When my modest wallet allows I will be going back!!"

  • "This restaurant has been consistently good for all the years it has been around. It has expanded over the years and retained the quality of the food and ambiance. It has gotten pricey for a neighborhood gem which means we cannot go as often but do still enjoy it."

  • "We reserved/ stopped at London Lennie's because we were close by in the neighborhood - and discovered that the food was so delicious that this may become destination dining for us. For those who like seafood - really worth the exploration. Our only challenge: on a Saturday night, the place was really busy. We ended up sitting at the bar instead of a table - BUT the service was excellent."

  • "Dinner at Lennies was outstanding! We spent time at the bar before dinner to try the "Oyster Special" ($1.00 each). Three diferent oysters were served... excellent! Friendly bartenders made us feel like we were long time customers. Next up was dinner. Bay Scallop special was very good. My wife had Surf & Turf. Cooked to perfection Homemade coleslaw ranks with the best we've ever had. Server was very friendly and accomodated all we asked for. The only negative was the size of the tabletop for the two of us. I highly recommend Lennies and look forward to our next visit."

  • "London Lennies has been a "go to" tradition in our family over the years. The food is dependably tasty, service is good. The tasty, fresh food comes to the table quickly. The meal comes with a tasty crusted warm bread, delicious fresh cole slaw. We had some desserts which were especially delicious too. You cannot go wrong with London Lennies."

  • "We love love love the place and the food! But for the first time, we were so disappointed with the service. No one was engaged, waited long for food - so out of LL character. We had friends with us who we had raved to about the place and were definitely put back. As always, the food was a hit!"

It was good but not excellent. I will give it another try in a couple of months to see if it has improved. Hopefully!"

  • "Not for anyone under 50 yrs old. I thought I was in my grandmas house. Food was good but nothing special. I might go back in another 20 yrs or when they upgrade. Also the valet parks the cars on the street and across the boulevard. Not safe at all"

  • "Fantastic raw bar!!! . Appetizers were perfect: shrimp bisque, oysters and raw clams and snowman legs. They gave us 4 dipping sauces but I am always impartial to cocktail sauce with the extra horseradish! Martinis were spot on as well. We had the broiled cod and the lobster entrees, both which melted in the mouth. Delicious. The best ever creamed spinach as the side dish choice was our choice over the other baked potato, French fries, rice options. No room for dessert. But a great meal. We were seated right away. Our reservation was 7 pm on Valentine's Day and it was a bit crowded. We were sitting had had drinks by 7:10. Service was very good. The food was excellent and we plan on going there again!"

  • "Many seafood restaurants claim to have great food but they don't. Not too long ago you could find a ton of seafood restaurants and you compared them for taste and ambience. They began to dwindle away little by little. London Lennies has stayed true to form for many years. I am a customer for approximately 40 years and the food keeps me coming back. No other seafood restaurant compares in quality and family dedication to the founding father. The first time that I tasted the lobster tails my taste buds had a party and my memory of that taste is still satisfied today. It's my favorite seafood restaurant and I dare not go anywhere else if I want to dine on great food. Ellen, Astoria Queens"
