I was disappointed on my last couple of visits to this iconic Queens restaurant. The food was nothing special, the atmosphere is as though you are in a large, noisy cafeteria. When we were waiting to be seated, the host was told by a manager not to sit the group ahead of us in the back room because they were... More

So how did I stumble on Lenny's? I was on my way to Joe's Crab Shack only to arrive to find a packed parking lot. No thank you. Since Elmhurst is close enough to Howard Beach, I headed to Lenny's. It's been there forever and now I know why. Unlike, Joe's you don't wait an hour for a table. We... More

I celebrated my grand kids birthdays here, and found the staff and service to be wonderful. If there is one drawback, it is the parking situation. There is Valet Parking, but the lot fills up quickly, especially during special events.

Eat at Lenny's very often......food is always rest and big portions. You get a free glass of wine if you say "I know Joe".....bruschetta is brought out first and warm bread....dinners consist of a salad and entree.....fried shrimp with hot sauce is a specialty. Portions are wonderful, and you will almost always being some home to enjoy the next day.... More

We were overnighting at a JFK hotel, so some Long Island friends took us to Lenny's. A busy Sunday evening, but they found us a table for 5 straight away. This is a real Italian, family restaurant, Great seafood and phenomenal tiramisu. Service was efficient and friendly. If we lived around here, we would definitely be back. A great holiday... More

We stopped for a snack and stayed for dinner. Good food and service. Server overheard me mention my wife's birthday and brought out dessert with a flare on it (no skimpy candles at this place!)

Having been to Lenny's for dinner several times, as well as a private reception, it was good to see that the lunch crowd/menu were up to those good standards. There was a very good crowd (mostly local clientele) in the place for a Wednesday and the lunch menu provided excellent options. Waitress brought a comp bruschetta with a fine basket... More

Had a very good lunch. Raw little neck clams as appetizer were super fresh with tasty cocktail sauce. Shrimp and mussels with medium heat were just right. Espresso and cheesecake concluded the meal. Not cheap but worth the price. Would return.
