Have been going there for many years and the food has always been outstanding. I have never had 1 bad meal there - whether I was there for lunch or dinner. For the first time in many years, I had a wonderful waiter.

We go to London Lennie’s a few times each year. We know we can always count on good food, a good time, and good service. This time, they seemed to be a little bit off on the food But nothing stopping us from going back to give them another try. Staff was extra fun !

Our fish & chips, crabcakes, dollar oysters and happy-hour wine & beer were all good to excellent. Service very good. One minor negative: too many menus! Didn't even realize there was yet more on the back of one. Physically & mentally, shouldn't have to manage three menus per person + extras on table. I understand the different themes of the menus and why you offer them, but at least make the sizes uniform. Better, use "books" with "pages" so the customer only has to manage one thing and can easily just flip pages and understand what's being presented. You can use the kind that lets you insert daily specials etc.

The male bartender is always a little off on service..But Rudy the gentleman who handles the raw seafood does a great job of backup bartender/service.

The place is a bit dark for my taste and the air conditioning wasn't working well, all I felt was the fans, which made it uncomfortable for me right away and I couldn't enjoy my meal. In my opinion its average food for a lot of money. We had oysters, branzino which was well made, mussels and tuna tartar. Service was okay, but definitely needed experience. Unless I am invited I wouldn't choose this place for dinner.

We have been hearing about London Lennie's for years but have not had occasion to be in the area. This past Saturday we were lucky enough to be "in the area".

We were greeted by a friendly hostess and sat immediately. I strongly suggest a reservation as there was already a line forming at 5pm. Our waiter, Rita, was a seasoned veteran and helped us select from the favorites and specials.

Our meal was primarily seafood, both raw and cooked and everything was delicious. We had the chowder, calamari and oysters to start. Dinners were crab tower, fish and chips, seafood platter and a hamburger. All arrived hot, tasty and and bountiful.

Unfortunately we did not have time for dessert due to another commitment but we certainly will try that on our next visit.

We went for our anniversary after a Broadway show. The waitstaff is second to none. Young, attentive, smiley, knowledgeable.

This is a go to place for seafood. we started out with a Hook Platter of mixed raw seafood. Clams, oysters, mussels , shrimp & lobster. Candy from the sea! I then had a whole Branzinni and my lovely bride had the red snapper. Absolutely fabulous.

We indulged in way too much desert. Key Lime pie is homemade and worth it. Also their ice cream is delicious.

We love this place and will go back every chance we get. Oh did I mention the cocktails are great too.

Enjoy

The restaurant is too expensive for what you get. They nickel and dime you. The atmosphere is like a factory. Tables are too close together and the chairs are extremely uncomfortable. As a back sufferer I still have not recovered since Sunday. I wouldn’t go out of my way to go back there.

The very best seafood restaurant in Queens. Fresh seafood prepared with classic simple recipes done to perfection. Table linen service in an uncrowned quiet restaurant. Not a glam, showpiece nor Michelin restaurant, just a place to get a very good, albeit somewhat expensive meal. A place to dine, not just to eat.

London Lennie's never disappoints. From the friendly and courteous front desk team to our server, Mariann. There is always a nice energy at LL on Friday evenings and dinner was exceptional. The Buratta plate is big enough for 2. Raw bar is always amazing; the little neck clams were fresh and ice cold. The crab cakes are meaty and flavorful.
