I’ve been going to London Lennies since the mid 60s. Often we go for birthdays and special occasions but we have been going more often lately just because the food is the best for the money and the service is outstanding. A friend of mine who had AIDS in the late 70s worked for them and the owners and management are the most standup people I know. Their staff never leaves!!

Very disappointed in the filet mignon. When I asked for some kind of sauce they said it would take ten minutes to make. I think the filet mignon should come with some sort of sauce. My dining companions had fish dishes and were very satisfied. I have been coming to London Lennie's for years and I have always enjoyed the filet mignon, but the past few years it has become more and more tasteless. Your ceasar salad is the best I've had.

My husband and I were there for New Years Eve. We had a reservation and they seated us promptly. The food was great and we did not feel rushed in the slightest despite the fact that the restaurant was crowded. We’ve been here before and will continue to eat here in the future.

Best restaurant for fresh perfectly cooked seafood. Service is always excellent. Probably been going for over 50 years (not as often as I like now as I moved to Long Island). Always improved and kept up with the times.

Food is always fresh and good. Service is good as well. Portions have gotten much smaller than they had been and prices are rising. Do not believe it is really worth the price anymore. I would still recommend the restaurant but be prepared to spend a lot and possibly still be hungry.

Amazing Food & Great service! Highly recommended! I had the linguini with shrimp & sea scallops sooo good. If you come here definitely go with their seafood it’s super fresh. Their red snapper ceviche is on point and was delish! Definitely my new fave!

I have been disappointed the last two times I've been here, which is sad. I've been going here for over 20 years. I guess they think they're indispensable. We came for Christmas eve dinner. 6 of us. The waitress was rushing us, first off. However, she wasn't rushing the table next to us that were ordering bottles of champagne. Really ratchet.
I sent my bisque back and my creamed spinach because it was literally cold. Not even room temperature. I am always happy to not feel stuffed after a dinner out, but the portions here have gotten smaller and smaller every time we go there. No one felt satisfied. There is never a substitution, even if you have an allergy.
I am no longer a fan. There are just as fine, and lots better restaurants that still try and please their clientele. I will not be back. That's for sure. And I surely wont miss the stale bread they put on the table.

I had noticed a few bad reviews, but it was the same old London Lennie's that my family has been going to for years. Food was excellent, service was good, valet parking was fast, and the ambiance was nice. Recommend to anyone that likes seafood and is in the neighborhood. After all these years, the fisherman platter still is awesome!

Wanted to take a special person out for dinner and celebrate a birthday. When we walked in, they asked if we can be helped. I said I had reservations and she said ok. Give us a few minutes. Waited about 10 to 15 minutes and was then watching everyone get seated. Then the girl asked us again, can we be helped???? I said we have been waiting to be seated. She just said ok, and walked us to our table. So that left a bad taste in my mouth. Getting the bread took 15 minutes as well, and I was already starving. Not a good start to this place.
