Father’s Day, a night early. Everyone else had the same idea as the restaurant was packed. That said, the food was great. The service fantastic. I will say that when I had the soft shell crabs on a less busy Thursday they were sublime. Three people had them on Saturday based upon my recommendation. No one was disappointed, but I had been spoiled...

The seafood is fresh and cooked to order when possible. Our party had tuna, shrimp, scrod and crabcakes, and all were delicious. We also ordered a delightful bottle of French Chardonnay.
The server was professional and courteous. London Lennies is great for lunch or dinner...you can always count of a great seafood meal, and there as other choices as well. Fun place for special occasions, too.

An old school Queens institution. A must for seafood lovers. They change their menu through the year and only serve what is fresh.

Our reservation was honored on time, waitstaff was very attentive. The dumplings, although very good, were different this time, the pieces of shrimp were missing. Whole fish, scallops, filet of sole, and halibut all excellent. Always excellent.

We have been to London Lennie's many times. The food is always good and the service is always friendly. We love the cold seafood appetizer so much that we order a large one just for dinner. If you like fresh seafood this is the place to go.

Mother’s Day celebration a night early. With Riverbay’s closing a few years ago, London Lenny’s has become our “go to” for seafood-consistently delicious, fresh seafood with attentive, friendly service. Other than a half-hour wait with reses, excellent dining experience.

I'd like to start off by complimenting their leniency, due to Mother's Day weekend the car traffic was unbelievably ghastly, in no way did I think it would take me an hour to get to the restaurant. We called multiple times to inform them of our lateness and every time we were greeted with understand and courtesy, in no way did we lose our reservation or made to wait for an unreasonable amount of time. Service apart their food was amazing, fresh and flavorful. Overall this place is great for any special occasion.

After continuously dining there for over 20+ years, minimum of 2X/week, the quality of the food has lost its edge and reputation. This iconic restaurant in business for almost 60 years was the "BEST GO TO PLACE" for the best seafood period. Menu changes include the elimination of the sushi and sashimi choices, snow crab claws, and a few other minor favorites. We love the staff whom we have grown friendships with but LL seems tired and neglectful of the loyal patrons, whom frankly, kept them in business...... And that's that!

I love food at London Lennies. I can’t say anything bad about quality of food, from its bread and butter to its entrees. However, I have to mention a disgusting thing I saw while eating. Busboy was throwing leftovers directly to the big tray he used to carry the place. He did it several times and the tray was really closed to our table. It’s not nice to see other people’s leftovers thrown so close to your plate while you are eating.

The restaurant and food was fantastic The only negative complaint is that I tried to reserve a table for 7 :30pm-8:30pm I was only able to get 9:00pm Open Table showed everything else reserved. We got there very early, 8:10 for a 9:00 reservation and there were so many empty tables. Don't understand why I could not book earlier. Next time we will take our chances and go without a reservation. This has happened at other restaurants when we book through Open Table.

Awful and overpriced. 3 shrimp in the stuffed shrimp dish for $32 ! Outrageous. Monk fish bland and tasteless. Restaurant did not timely honor the reservation and when I complained the hostess did seat us but punished us by sitting at a table right on top of a group of 13 when there were many other tables available in the restaurant. Our waiter and busboy were great and attentive but otherwise the meal was an expensive disappointment.

London Lennies is one of our favorite restaurants in Queens. The environment is not fancy but comfortable. People who works there are very nice and provide great service. Most important thing...food is always delicious at this place, especially seafood. Strongly recommended to others.

Overall this place lives up to it's hype. My only two comments would be the crawfish boil was a little under-seasoned and the broiled seafood platter was slightly overcooked. Steak, lobster and scallops were A++.
