An overnight stay near JFK found us exploring restaurants in Howard Beach. Reviews led us to Lenny's, a choice that our Uber driver heartily agreed with. Turned out to be a very good experience. Ambiance is classic Italian seafood house, complete with a photo of James Gandolfini peering down from the wall. It was easy to tell that most customers... More

Service was great and friendly but the food wasn't spectacular. Employees smoking at the restaurant entrance was also a turn off.

We came here for Father's Day. We flew in to New York for the day. The only thing that brought this review up to a 2 instead of a 1 was the bartender, who made an amazing Gimlet. The meals had burned garlic, a flavor that can't be ignored. The server was never to be seen. We were greeted with... More

Had a family reunion at Lenny's. The food was good. Service was good. We were in a private room with a big window overlooking the water. Everyone commented how much they enjoyed everything. Would have another party there or just go to dinner.

I went here for a family communion celebration and I will definitely go back! The food was delicious! The pasta, shrimp, clams, chicken and ribs were absolutely fantastic! Cooked to perfection! I will definitely go back to have dinner there!

Since my first review of Lenny's in 2013, I've been back several times. Each time has been a very enjoyable experience. Highlights were the calamari with Lenny's signature marinara sauce, the baked clams and their salmon entree. The eggplant parm is also good, but is oversalted just a pinch. The rollback in Jan-Feb is always a treat -- a great... More

I didn't know what to expect but I was in NY and wanted seafood. The last couple places I tried had been debacles so Lenny's was on deck. We had a great time, a little loud but it's NY right? The food was good, staff friendly and we enjoyed our evening a great deal.
