My family has been meeting at Lenny's for years as it's centrally located for us all. The food and service is always excellent.

Four of us had a light dinner......one order of French fries, one order of cheese blintzes with mini potato pancakes (excellent) and one veggie burger. Everyone was pleased. The egg bread they served could be improved. Waitress was exceptionally nice. Cost $48 including tip.

Lenny's has always been good when you want a good deli meal. I enjoyed my stuffed cabbage and it was served hot and delicious. One of my friends had a problem with her matzobrie which was sent back twice because it was not hot. Otherwise, we enjoyed our meal.

The service was horrible. The waitress made mistakes at every opportunity. Our drink order was wrong.... she let us keep our drinks, brought us the correct drinks, but charged us for the more expensive drinks that we didn’t order. Also charged us for an extra drink we didn’t order at all. She brought us a full sandwich when we ordered a half sandwich. Then she charged us for the full sandwich. She was reluctant to change the bill, for some reason. “Oh, I will take off one of the drinks to account for the full price sandwich.” Why not just fix the bill? I sent her back twice to fix the bill, and in the end, I was still overcharged by about $2. But it just wasn’t worth sending her back a third time. It was late, the restaurant was not crowded, and this shouldn’t have been happening. The service ruined it for me.

We were a large party of 8 so it was great to all sit together in a booth. I believe everyone was happy with their meal.

Always enjoy the food at Lenny’s. Service was spotty — hard to get someone to refill water and iced tea. And, bathroom could have used some cleaning during my visit.

The senior menu was a great surprise for us! The bowl of soup was filled with chicken and vegetables as well as a large kreplach! The stuffed cabbage and side salad (coleslaw) was delicious! On top of all this with a Landmark ticket we both got a large piece of cake for dessert for free! What a bargain at 15 a person!!

We have dined here many times, in it's Junior's days through to it's Lenny's incarnation. This last experience was rather disappointing. Service was adequate but a bit slow. Even the pickles weren't as good as usual! We had the turkey loaf dinner, and it tasted more like the bread crumbs it was made with than any turkey. Barely edible. It came with a cupful of gravy, enough for a whole turkey. Even though it was promoted as a healthy option, it came with the cupful of gravy and rice, but not veggies instead (or as an option). The matzo ball soup was just okay. This is not the quality deli we used to enjoy and come to expect.

Service was exceptional - we were well taken care of. This was a busy night as it was the first night of Passover but my reservation was honored and our table was ready. All went well - food was delicious.

Lenny's is consistently great deli food. During a Sunday brunch time, service was excellent and attentive. Three of us enjoyed egg dishes. One of us had pancakes and commented, "not the best." However, the ambience allowed us to spend time leisurely eating and talking and catching up with friends.

The service was abysmal. We were asked to wait to be seated, but after several minutes seated ourselves. No coffee; no menus & no server for 12 minutes until we flagged him down.
They did not make the food as we ordered it & had to grab someone to get the check.
All while the restaurant was half empty.
Not as good as they used to be.

We enjoyed our meal. Soup was delish with a generous amount of carrots and chicken. We ordered two pastrami sandwiches but the amounts in both sandwiches was inconsistent. One had a much larger proportion of meat! Food was tasteful and we will return.

This place has sadly gone downhill since it was Junior's. Food is really not as good as it used to be. Our orders were almost all wrong. The servers are really nice... it's not just not their fault that things are not running smoothly. Maybe the new owners will figure out the problems.

Lenny's is a good place for breakfast -- and also for late night dining after the movies. We've been going there for years and love it. Also, there's lots of convenient parking.
