Local fave

There is always a line... but it moves quick. You won't mind at all as you admire all the celebrity pics on the wall. this is a tried and true Italian joint. Especially love the chicken francaise, most every app, and especially the desserts.

This restaurant is an icon in Howard Beach so as they are celebrating their 41st anniversary, I decided to try out their anniversary menu. I have to say the management needs to spruce up the decor. It's old and dated, however the food was absolutely delish. I had shrimp scampi with rice, a medley of vegetables and a salad. My... More

I use to love going to Lenny's sometimes I will go there twice a month. I must say the last 3 or 4 times the food was not as good as it usually is. The baked clams the past couple times have come out very dry even when i ask them if they can put more lemon and butter sauce... More

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.

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
