    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/17/2014
    My husband's AND my father's birthday occurred this month Sept.9th for my hubby and Sept 14 for my father(He just turned 90years of age). I picked London Lennie's to celebrate their birthdays together! It was the 1st time in over 30years that my dad has eaten in a restaurant! After dining there, my dad hasn't stopped expressing how happy he was with the food, the service, and just the warmth of everyone there,staff and patrons! He(my dad) is blind and he felt very comfortable there!My husband and I LOVE the place!A really nice experience every time we dine there!!!

    The seafood is fresh and prepared to perfection, however the restaurant is busy and if your seated on an aisle, It's not very relaxing. The service was top shelf and our server was well informed, friendly and helpful. Going to try weekday lunch, which should be less energetic. The prices are excellent for the quality of the food and service.

    The food was good and the restaurant looked very nice, but the servers all seemed to be running around and over worked. The service was very good when our server was able to come by, but that was far between. A meal that should have been an hour turned into 2 hours and 45 minutes.

    Normally we would go to City Island for a special occasion but we tried different and wasn't disappointed. London Lennies was a fabulous dining experience. Every dish that was brought out to us was special and delicious. My wife who isn't the easiest critic ate without disappointment. I told friends, family and planning my return visit for my daughters 21st birthday. This is a must dine.

    I have been eating at London Lennies for over 25 years. I've always found the seafood very fresh and the sauces are superb. It's an added treat to make reservations ( when I first started there you needed at least 8). The prices are getting a bit high, but I still enjoy the meal.

    I have to say this is the first time we did not have a great meal My wife ordered the crab cakes. The person next to also had them and there were shells in the cakes My wife tried hers and a shell in each of the first two bites She swapped out for a lobster roll but I had to start my meal while she waited. Not one "sorry" from the staff When I ordered my martini extra dirty it came regular and I needed to ask for extra olive brine Again no apology but the server said she saw the bartender add juice We normally have only great meals at London lennies and we will go back, but this meal was not great

    I live in Staten Island, but if I lived closer I probably would go to your place more often. We go to your rest. about 2 times a year. It is a great centralized spot for me and my old friends from Long Island to meet & have dinner twice a year. Keep up the great work folks, London lennys is one of my favorite places to eat.

    A good choice of fish, always served with bread, and slaw. Prices have gone up to where a dinner of swordfish is $31. But that's not too bad, I guess. The side of vegetables is a weak spot. Medley of broccoli carrots and zucchini is tame, when there are so many other fresh vegetables available.

    Shawnequia
    Dined on 7/31/2014
    Was seated promptly upon arrival. For an appetizer, I ordered the shrimp and crab dumplings. The dumplings were falling apart and not as flavorful as I thought they would be. My entree were the crab cakes which again, I thought should have been fried a little harder and lacking more flavor. They weren't overly breaded which was a plus, however, had shells in them which stopped me from enjoying both patties. I ordered the Strawberry shortcake for dessert which was both visually stunning and appetizing. My companion ordered the calamari as appetizer which she said could have been fried harder as well. For her entree she ordered the Lobster roll which she enjoyed. For dessert she had the Chocolate Molten cake which was just OK.

  • NY style classic fish house
    Talkcineman
    Dined on 7/26/2014
    Overall a genre of NY restaurant --family run fish house-- that you don't see any more. Comfortable room, friendly, attentive service, bustling neighborhood attraction. Great raw bar to start--good selection of east coast oysters, couple west coasters too. Best entrees are simple broiled fish in preference to the more ambitious attempts. Beer might work better than the wine selection in moderate price range. Chocolate cake for two or more was a hit with the kids off the old school dessert menu ( strawberry shortcake, bread pudding, NY cheesecake etc). Keep it simple for a fun fish dinner.

    They have an extensive seafood menu -- it's very impressive but important to note that they also have non-seafood items like steak and pasta. Either way, they're all about the seafood and it's fresh and tasty. Nice portions and reasonably priced. Also want to plug that their desserts are fantastic and a nice surprise. Service can be spotty. The first time I was there, my waitress kept forgetting to bring things although very friendly. My second time there, the waitress that served us was just as friendly but provided really great spot-on service.

    London Lennies has always been our place to go to celebrate any special occasion. We make it a tradition to celebrate birthday lunches there and have enjoyed many meals over the years. The food is always superb, especially the fresh coleslaw (my husband is not a big fan of coleslaw but he always makes an exception here). The bread, which comes before the meal, is baked fresh, arrives warm. We love the calamari and Shrimp and Crab Dumplings appetizers. The seafood variety has always been fresh and we are never disappointed. They have always maintained the food quality over the years and is on our list of top 5 go to restaurants. We have always found the waiters and waitresses attentive and courteous.

    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.
