You can almost never fault the food at London Lennies. Their fish is superb. Though they have always been pricey, it seems to be more so recently. We had a very nice meal but the service left a lot to be desired. Our server was somewhat disinterested, never had the table cleared when there were lots of used dishes and glasses, never asked if we needed anything and without looking or thanking us she placed the check on the table and walked away.

I have been going to London Lennie's for years. Unfortunately the portions are getting smaller and smaller and the price is the same or higher. Not very good value anymore. May have to look for a new Seafood restaurant.

I would have given a rating of 5 but the food was extremely salty. I'm going to assume it was just that day or just my meal. I will try this place one more time.

I've been going to London Lennie's for over 20 years and the food never disappoints. Best and freshest seafood restaurant in Queens, however, the prices seem to have gotten outrageously expensive. This is Queens, not Manhattan! Best bet is to go before 5pm. They have a nice price fixe menu that includes appetizer, entrée and dessert and you have a decent selection to choose from at a moderate price. Be careful in ordering wine/drinks - a glass of wine (4oz) if that, was $13!

Know the place well. Usually enjoy very much. Poor service this time, despite small crowd. Waited what seemed like 10 minutes for someone just to make initial contact & take drink order. Then 10 minutes or more for the drinks. Food was just ok this time. And man working fresh-fish counter encouraged little kids to pose with dungeness crab, which led to series of free-for-all screaming – as though we were at a Chuck E. Cheese. Not what we go here for.

I used to go to London Lennies with some frequency. But my schedule and the distance has caused me not to get there often. It is still a very consistent place with great, lively atmosphere. Of course the food is excellent. Just a bit too busy and staff is somewhat overwhelmed with the numerous tables. I will return.

London Lennies is the best restaurant in Queens. Never disappointed. They have an extensive, creative menu with fine fish selection. Todays visit was a delight, since it was "crab season". Enjoyed Florida stone crab appetizer ($24.) and later crab au gratin. The only thing I did not enjoy was the bloody mary. (Mr. & Mrs. T's mix would have been better!) ALSO, visit the restaurant in December as they always decorate it beautifully for the holidays.

Went as a group of four for dinner. Had a reservation that was immmediately honored. Had asked for a quiet table but was seated near a service station.

Dinner service was very efficient and the entrees were well prepared. I had crabmeat stuffed shrimp. There were 3 jumbo shrimp that had a generous amount of crab filling..

A crab and corn creamy soup was very tasty and served as a thick combination of vegetables. Desserts if pecan pie and key lime pie were good.

The food was delicious, as expected. Love the fried seafood platter! I was not impressed by the bourbon pecan pie for dessert. It didn't taste fresh and the crust was soggy. Nevertheless, I would go there again for a future seafood fix.

The restaurant was recommended by a local business associate and WOW the recommendation was great. The food was terrific and the service was exceptional. We had a great meal with business associates and were able to talk without shouting. Our server was attentive but never made us feel rushed. Since it was a business meeting as well as a meal, we were there longer than the average diner, and our server accommodated our needs perfectly. I will recommend to anyone traveling to the area to give London Lennies a try.

London Lennie's Crab Fest never disappoints. The crab meat quesadilla is amazing. The portion is huge and perfect for sharing. Also a plus is the LL beer-batted shrimp. Large shrimp and generous portion. If you are a fan of raw bar, then London Lennie's is the place for you.

Crab fest lunch was expensive $260 for three, with tip. One drink apiece and only one appetizer and one dessert for the table. The food is always good, the service not-so-much this time. Waitress must have been new as we ordered three crab au gratin main courses and were served three fillet stuffed with crab and shrimp. When we told her the order was wrong she said it wasn’t, until I showed her the shrimp which isn’t in the crab au gratin. She begrudgingly agreed that the order was wrong. But this delayed our lunch by another 20 minutes while they prepared three new entrees. Once correctly served it was delicious. At the end of the meal I was handed a bill for $118, which I knew was incorrect and when I told the Waitress to bring me the correct check she got snippy. I should have paid the $118 check and stuck them with wrong bill, but we did the right thing and paid the correct check. It was a shame because this was a birthday celebration, and the poor service put a damper on the nice occasion. Great food, high prices, and this time poor service.

It was already dark and stormy night. So to going to Lennies was a delight. Read valet service. The crab festival is going on and the menu options were terrific. My clients and I enjoyed choosing from the different menus. Service was great and very attentive. My only disappointment was with the raw bar, I was hoping for an assortment of all three types. However Management will not allow this. One of the selection of six clams tasted frozen and old. The other little neck clams tasted fresh. The rest of our dinners accompanied by a fine Italian white wine was excellent. Special kudos to the crab cake assortment. Fresh and delicious.
