    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.

    Title says it all. Food is delicious, fresh and filling. Prices are a little high, but well worth the value. You get what you pay for. I got the Lennie's Duet, with the steak and lobster tail. 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.

    This was my first time at London Lennies and I will definitely go back. The five spice tuna entree was prepared perfectly. The salmon sushi roll appetizer was scrumptious. The menu is filled with dishes sure to keep mermaids coming back again and again. The staff was friendly, welcoming, and super efficient. The restaurant was packed on a Fruday night with a thirty minute wait for a table. Mermaids in the know make a reservation.

    I took my parents for dinner there to have some good seafood. We were not disappointed. We were seated right away despite the fact that we were late. The waiter came over & was polite and patient. No problem ordering appetizers first. We didn't wait long. Portions were good and we could share. Fresh scallops & mussels. Dinner was good too. The spinach was out of this world. It is expensive but once in a while for good seafood it's worth it.

    This remains one of our favorite restaurants. The food is consistently good. This time we had New England Clam Chowder- great, oysters- delicious, caesar salad- good but we missed out wedge salad and steamers- good but a ridiculously small portion for $17. Key lime pie for dessert. We will continue to go back.

    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 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
