    London Lennies is my family's favorable seafood restaurant for many years. The menu has a large variety of sea food, including steaks, pasta dishes and chicken. The food is very tasty. Our favorable dishes include the whole roasted branzino, salmon, pasta with shrimp and scallops, bay scallops, fried calamari and shrimp tempura. The service is very professional and friendly. We highly recommend this restaurant.

    I remember when the restaurant was small and, even as it's expanded, the food is still amazing, everything is fresh and service is wonderful. I had the shrimp stuffed with crab meat and unlike most places where the stuffing is breadcrumbs, the shrimp was stuffed with real crab meat! My dinner companion had salmon and said it was the best salmon she ever had! Our waitress was so sweet and so was every other staff member. We went on a Saturday night and even though we had a 6:00 p.m. reservation, we, like a lot of people there, had to wait about 15 minutes to get seated. It seemed a little disorganized but they did the best they could.

    Most local restaurants in the borough that offer seafood do not specialize in fish. London Lennies is the rare exception where you can get a spectacular fresh seafood meal at an affordable price. The valet service can make you late for your reservation, so be sure to leave extra time for that. Also be sure to tell the petite hostess that you are ready to be seated. Both on Friday and Sunday, we checked in with our reservation info, and she had us wait on the side until our actual reservation time, even though our table was open and set. The servers are all amazing!!

    Dined here with a friend Saturday night. It was the last weekend of Crab Fest, which I was looking forward to experiencing. I ordered the corn and crab soup which was delicious. We also ordered fried calamari, it was ok...wasn't hot and a little chewy/soggy as if it has been sitting out. Our entrees were very good, I ordered the fried bay scallops with a side of creamed spinach, my friend the chicken. I was excited to order the blueberry cobbler on the special menu only to be let down when it arrived; it was basically a vanilla sponge cake with blueberry jam on top; NOT a cobbler! I was very disappointed. However, the waitress was understanding when we decided to send it back. Despite my disappointment, this is still one of my favorites!

    I have been to London Lennies many times, and the food and service are always fantastic. It's certainly not inexpensive, but it is totally worth it, especially if you are celebrating something or just want to enjoy one of their amazing fests throughout the year. I always have a good time and a wonderful meal there, especially anything seafood related, as they really know the best ways to prepare those dishes!

    The crab fest is spectacular!! Nothing beats a platter of mixed crab claws (Jonah, Snow and Stone). The crab Quesadilla rocks! King Crab Legs simply steamed served with melted butter should be enjoyed by anyone who appreciates fresh seasonal seafood. London Lennies never lets you down! Outstanding quality, yet affordable pricing.

    London Lennies relies on past fame. The food was fresh ,but the accompaniments given are no longer special treats. The choice of a baked potatoe or coleslaw are not sufficient for the expensive prices for their seafood entrees. It's time for a restaurant menu redo to attract a younger crowd. The crab fest was good but again the price was high for the choices of crab and their mediocre sauces or side offers. If you are looking for a dinner atmosphere than this is the place for you.

    Went there for their Cracking Crab dinner and it was wonderful. Started off with chilled Florida Stone crab claws and they were very good. My wife had the She Crab soup and it was loaded with crab meat and very good. Foe the main course she had the crab cake trio and I had the Dungenesse crab from Oregon. The crab cakes were very good and my dish was excellent. The crab meat was very sweet and with the melted butter (cannot tell my cardiologist) it was very good. We have been here on other times and all the fish dinners are fresh and well done. Great place for seafood lovers.

    Vast array of amazing choices in seafood, and Crabfest was no exception. Dungeness, snow crab, king crab, all on the menu and delicious. The crab bisque would rank well further north in New England. Service was lacking this last visit but is usually excellent. Oyster selection is very nice and always fresh. Never a miss for dinner and the bar scene can be fun on the weekend, with jazz diving up the scene.

Delicious!! Tail was huge, sweet, tender and delicious. Steak I got was medium rare, cooked perfect. My wife got the crab cakes as an entree. Lump crab meat and made fresh and delicious.

    I've been to London Lennies many times over the years. The last two time, 8/14 and 10/10/14, I found the entrees disappointing. Both times my fish was dry and very bland. (I had the broiled seafood platter.) On 10/10/14 my companions had salmon, which they found mediocre. Bread, salads and New England clam chowder are nice. Dessert was a let down: big chocolate cake (which can feed 4) was dry. One persone got sugarless cheesecake. She said it was tasteless. London Lennies is a little pricy. I'm sure I'll return eventually because the service and ambiance is great, but it is no longer a "go to" place for me.
