Perfect from start to finish
Valet service for our car, table ready on time, fresh crusty bread. Our guests gave everything rave reviews, the dumplings- excellent, fresh salad, whole fish excellent, shrimp had excellent sauce, and the linguine with scallops and shrimp was delicious.

Went for crabfest and the food was delicious but very expensive...even for this place. However, we had a delicious meal and a great evening overall thanks mostly to the wonderful service from our waitress, Amanda.

Branzino was way too oily. That took away from the married flavors of the thyme, fennel, etc. Been here several times and have always enjoyed my meal but not this time. As always the “house” coleslaw did not disappoint.

One of my favorite fish restaurants nowadays.
We go to LL every two weeks. Sometimes we share a dinner with another couple or just the two of us.
Every entree I have ordered it’s delicious..
Their Mediterranean Soup is amazing.
Just last Sunday took some hone to eat again.
Their oysters are to die for.
But then again, everything there “is to die for”.
Love, love LL!!!

Very friendly welcome from host and waitress. Impeccable food from clam chowder to alaskan giant crab legs. Pricing excellent including for reasonable white wine. Terrible Irish coffee but they can be forgiven and you can avoid it!

I've dined at London Lennies several times and I was a bit anxious knowing it would be Saturday night.
LL tends to get crowded and diners get lost in the rush.

But, I love seafood and I love the ambiance of LL. And, this time, my friends and I enjoyed terrifically. Our server Amy was excellent and very attentive, assisted by very polite and caring helpers. The menu was enhanced by some exceptional and delicious specials.

Good for LL, it's a busy ambiance, and Saturday night, lots of families, children, and customers.... and with that, it's very energetic.

The Restaurant has been around a long time which speaks for it self. Valet parking starts and eliminates the need to look for parking, you are taken to your table upon arrival. the service is professional and the food is good. the dining experience is enjoyable.

Glad to report that restaurant has improved since last time I was there when I was disappointed with the food. This time, though, food was excellent ... the swordfish I had maybe a year ago was dry and overdone but the one I had the other night was perfect! Prices were higher, too, but worth it. I suspect they must have a new chef. Service and ambiance first-rate as always. Highly recommended now.

The food is usually outstanding.....the fish is prepared in very interesting ways...halibut with sun dried tomatoes and mushrooms....the mussels with chorizo. The service this time was excellent....not always so. The prices are very high for Queens....Manhattan prices......drinks $14 and up....entrees usually high $30....they should really lower their prices considering the neighborhood. It was $110 each for dinner.
