There is also an excellent wine list."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Great raw bar, variety of appetizers and huge selection of fresh fish, lobster and crab in any size and style preparation. Only downside...everything is a la carte and expensive. They do, however, have a less expensive pre-fixe option. Great for date nights and special occasions."

  • "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."

  • "This is the place if your a clam and mussel lover.The cherrystone clams and oysters are better then any place i know of.The black mussels and linguine with white clam sauce is to die for.and to top it off the special bread pudding with ice cream desert, recommanded by the waitress, was fantastic.I ve moved 100 miles away since i first started comming to london lennies but the trip back is well worth it.I do not know how over the years london lennies continues to keep up its quality but it does.My waitess was professional and pleasent and all her recomandations were right on.As Arnold says i'll bE BACCCCCK"

  • "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."

  • "Had a biz lunch here and a good time was had by all. I personally don't eat seafood, but the client picked Lenny's. The food was really good, but of course I would like a bigger non-fish selection. The service was fabulous and our server was super knowledgable. Definitely recommend."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
