Great Birthday Dinner

Dined on April 14, 2016

We enjoyed a wonderful birthday dinner celebration with a party of ten. They could not have been more accommodating to the many changes in the reservation and late arrivals. We stayed for hours and our server was so wonderful and patient with us. The meals were excellent and well prepared. Really a terrific night.

Great meal

Dined on April 13, 2016

I came here on business with a client, and the service and food was wonderful. I recommend coming here on any occasion. We had the crab and avocado appetizer which was just okay and we ordered a mixed group of the raw oysters. Everyone's meal was really good (filet, ribeye and fish dishes). Great find.

Disappointing

Dined on April 13, 2016

I went to this restaurant for the first time based on a recommendation from a family member. The occasion was a business meeting with four people. Not one person was happy with the meal. Half of the food went uneaten. We found the food to be poorly seasoned and often bland. Last week I wrote a polite letter to the owner of the restaurant complaining that (a) I had been overcharged and (b) the food was unacceptable as stated above. I did not request a specific amount of money refunded, I just said that I felt some credit was due and asked for a reply to my letter. So far I have not heard one word from the owner of the restaurant. Overall I found my experience here to be disappointing and feel that for the prices at this establishment, one can do much better driving into Manhattan to visit a top steak and seafood restaurant there.

For starters, fish tacos, my favorite ! Dozen sweet and very fresh little necks , great fried calamari and a salad - All delightful. Entrees, better half and myself shared a 2 1/2 lb steamed lobster, usually we share the 5lb, but we requested a female.... Worked out well.... ordering the swordfish too. Also fried Shrimp and Linguini with clams. Our Server/Bartender José was charming, attentive , light on his feet, as the dishes came out out so quickly! Great atmosphere, the bar, always entertaining and lively. Thanks again José, we had blast. Of course the strawberry shortcake, double size chocolate layer cake and the blueberry hazelnut crunch was amazing.

Always a Hit

Dined on April 3, 2016

While a bit noisy, always come back because the food is always up to par. I had grilled swordfish and my companion had grilled scallops. Both cooked to perfection. We shared a chopped Lennie's salad which was delicious as well. Been coming here for many years and will return for many more.

Very good, but pricey

Dined on April 2, 2016

The food was very good, especially the oysters. I got the "Lennies Duet" which is a 7oz. Lobster tail and a 12oz or 8oz filet mignon. I thought it was good, but for the price, I thought the mean could have been better quality. Other than that, I would definitely go back.

The freshest seafood meal you can find in the area!! The menu items are fresh, creative and tastefully prepared just the way you like them. The array of seafood changes by season and market to assure you are getting the best. The sushi is better than many Japanese restaurants I have been to. They always go out of their way to make your visit special! From the lovely ladies who greet and seat you to the professional, friendly wait staff who are all over the top, they can't be beat!

Even better than I remember

Dined on March 18, 2016

My husband and I had dined at London Lennie's years ago, on someone's (maybe many people's) recommendation. We thought the food was good, but the atmosphere left something to be desired. Now, in 2016, we love the decor, and it's a pleasant, relaxing, romantic atmosphere. Our waitress was very personable and attentive, the food was exquisite, and everything went just perfectly. It was St. Patrick's Day, which is also my husband's birthday (the reason for coming to the restaurant), and I noticed that there were several other birthdays being celebrated there with candles in desserts and singing of "Happy Birthday." So, he got that treatment, too. My husband, our son, and I all had a great time, and I can't wait to come back.

Lobster rolls

Dined on March 9, 2016

Been there before. This time ordered lobster roll. Very disappointed. There was very few chunks of lobster in it. Mostly like lobster salad Not at all what I'm used to. French fries were undercooked. Not a good value for the price. I must have been tired because normally I would have sent it back. My husband felt the same. Will think twice about returning

London L in March

vip
Dined on March 4, 2016

This was our first visit and at the end of the dinner, we looked at each other and concurrently said when are we coming back? The hostess greeted us with a smile, asked what our seating preferences were and quickly found the perfect table. Our server approached us very quickly and our delightful culinary experience began. Our server Kathy was warm, knowledgable, and efficient! The menu was Trumpian "Huuuge" and our choices of Lobster Tails and scallops were perfectly prepared and delicious. We shared a dessert of Key Lime pie that was a wonderful combination of sweet and tart and was one of many that sounded very appetizing. We do plan to return often and would give London Lennies 5+++++ stars if we could!

My wife and I arrived around 5PM and were seated immediately. The watriess we had was very knowledgeable and pleasent. She took our drink order and then gave us plenty of time to make our dinner selections. The Manhattan I had was right up there with best I ever had.

Great Seafood Find

Dined on February 26, 2016

We had dinner there twice. Both times the seafood was fresh and delicious. The crabmeat tower appetizer was excellent. I had pignoli crusted red snapper served over sweet potato and spinach gnocchi...delicious! My husband had shrimp stuffed with crabmeat. Although there were only three shrimps, they were very filling. The service both times was excellent! Make a reservation...it was crowded on Friday night.
