My hubby took me there for my birthday. Their food was amazing. Their oysters so fresh. Their veal was so tender and juicy. The waitstaff was very friendly. I really enjoyed every moment.

Back in the 70's I briefly lived on Pitkin Avenue next to Howard Beach. Lenny's came to Howard Beach after a long run in Brooklyn's Flatbush section where I believe it originated in the 1960' as a pizzeria. They have grown into a full service seafood house right on the canal and I believe still operate some franchises in other... More

Whomever said you can't get a bad Italian meal in NY, never ate here. I get the feeling this place is about churn & burn more than the dining experience. Food was flying to our table because I think a lot was pre made. We love baked clams, these were so over cooked that the clam was chewy and almost... More

Every dish is good. Specials are reasonable and staff is great. I think they need to update the menus more often (January specials listed in a May menu)? It's not a big deal though, I'll be back!

Italian seafood in a comfortable atmosphere , ample space and seating. superior service. This is the second time we went there while laying over at JFK, a short Cab ride - long enough not to piss off the cabbie and short enough to be convenient for you. mussels were good, pasta dished excellent, try to apron steak.
