Diner Reviews
  • "This place is a Jem great seafood try it and you will be back."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Went there recently and had my favorite of soft shells crabs, which is extremely seasonal. Cooked perfectly to order. I have had this dish many times at many different restaurants and this is one of the best I ever had. I have eaten at this restaurant many times, very energetic, always had good service and good food no matter what I have eaten. Their swordfish melts in your mouth. Whenever there is a holiday, it does get backed up and the service is less accomodating but I expect that from any popular restaurant. Seafood is always fresh. My favorite Queens restaurant."

  • "Over many years as a neighborhood restaurant, London Lennie's has remained consistent. Their fish is extremely fresh, with many choices, their service friendly, and although the room is large, it's not too noisy. My family will keep coming back!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "This is my second place and food is absolutely amazing! Seafood is fresh and taste amazing. It is surely worth the price to pay."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "If you want fresh fish cooked to what ever way you want then London Lennies is the place for you. I started off with a great bowl of New England Clam Chowder and it was very good. Thick and hearty with an abundance of fresh clams. I had a two pound lobster broiled and it was outstanding. The service was very good and the meal was excellent."

    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • " Food all of excellent quality. Portions were good. Service was excellent in so many ways. Table always clean. Water and bread always replenished without asking. Waitress knowing it was my birthday put candles on the cake. The waitress even noticed that my daughter took no ice in her water. Will return and recommend restaurant to all."

  • "Our family wanted to celebrate our daughter's graduation and remembered the wonderful meal we had here before, which was also for a special occasion. We had gotten out a bit earlier than expected and Lennies was very accommodating to our reservation changes. Our 83yr old grandmother was with us and loved her lunch and service, as did we. There were several larger groups nearby but the noise levels remained comfortable."

    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We go to London Lennie's as a treat. Everyone in our family finds something to enjoy on their menu and they make gatherings special. During our most recent meals, the service was terrific. The waitstaff is attentive, but they don't hover. London Lennie's is a neighborhood gem. They make dining out in Middle Village delicious!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "My husband's favorite place for Halibut! The soft-shelled crabs were delicious, and the swordfish and shrimps were excellent."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We dine at London Lennies at least once a week and never tire of it. It's a ritual to sit at the bar at a high top to be right at the center of the action. Although we've been enjoying everything they have to offer, we just recently tried snow crabs. What a treat! We just love this place!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Food was, as it always is, excellent. The service this time around however was sub-par. Our server consistently forgot to bring items we had ordered and/or requested and she conveniently disappeared after the food was served. We had to ask busboys for items our server neglected to offer or bring. And the wait for our check was interminable. Not sure if our server was just having a bad day, but this is not the norm at London Lennies."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "London Lennies is a terrific restaurant for seafood lovers. I had the whole grilled branzini while my wife had the macadamia nut crusted Florida red snapper. Two other diners in our party enjoyed the soft shell crabs. Dinner was unhurried and the service was attentive."

  • "I had Sunday dinner for my grandson's high school graduation. A party of four. Between the delicious food and great waitress, the dinner was a success!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "sever was not great this time (older women). She never checked on us, left us with empty water glasses. left plates on our table and waited for bus boy to clean up all the time(very lazy). She totally avoided us if she had to work. She literally looked at the table with seeing the plates needed to be cleared and walked away. Not happy about that. The food is always great but the older women servers are the worst(2nd time this happens with the older women servers)."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The food is always excellent. Fish and seafood fresh, and there is an excellent selection of reasonably prices wines."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "for those for whom price is no object, this is the place for delicious fish and seafood. Service was very accommodating Our waiter even turned off the overhead fans that were making the room too cold---for me.. "
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "I've dined here for years, and the seafood is always great, starting from the crunchy crusty bread, to the appetizers of fried calamari, and the raw little neck clams. There's an assortment of unique cocktails. Entrees are great, with good portions. And the deserts are a good after dining compliment. My favorite times to go are during the crab fests, and the clam fests. Making reservations ahead of time is advisable. The service is fast, and attentive. There is also valet parking. This is a must try place, for any seafood lover."

  • "We have been here before and it just keeps getting better if you like sea food try it out."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "My wife and I have been going back to London Lennie's more and more lately. Seems like they have improved with age. Not that it was ever bad - I've enjoyed it since I was a little kid (I've been going since the 70's, and my family long before that). It's just that what used to be a good neighborhood standby has taken a few steps up into, dare I say the classy category. Fish is always very fresh, and with the variety of preparations, there's something for everyone. If you live in Queens or western Nassau, and you remember LL's as that old place where you would take Grandma for dinner, give it a try now. It's worth the trip."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Soft shelled crabs are in season. LL's panko crusted crab cakes are the best! "
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "The best raw bar in Queens. They have the freshest and meatiest clams you can find. The oysters are really good also. You won't find better anywhere in Queens. You can go to Manhattan, but then you pay Manhattan prices. Lunch at the bar is a real treat."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Consistently fine dining. The fish is as fresh as can be and the choices are plentiful. I always like to meet friends for lunch or dinner. Everyone is amazed at this gem of a restaurant."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "I really enjoyed the ambiance, but I had higher expectations for the food. Not bad, but not wonderful either. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Best fish and seafood in Queens. Never a disappointment. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014

    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "London Lennies is my all time favorite restaurant. I am a Manhattanite who has dined at the Palm, yet Lennies always draws me back! I have been dining there for at least 20 yrs. Lennies has become an old friend, one I always relish to see."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Have been going to London Lennie's for a long time & this time the food took forever to come out of the kitchen. I don't know if it was the waitress or the kitchen staff. Since it was a Tuesday night we did not come in for extreme leisurely dining and was irritated for the long wait."
