Amazing seafood and service - get the big seafood linguine when you're here - it easily feeds 2 people.

Went to Lenny's clam bar on my birthday. Haven't been there in awhile. I was completely surprised. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was fantastic. I had the October shrimp special. I received six shrimp cocktail, six shrimp scampi over rice and six breaded shrimp. The food exceeded my expectations. I have been going to Vincent's but this... More

We liked the sound of a restaurant near the beach with Clam Bar in its name. The look and decor is like it was a set from The Sopranos ( "Tony Soprano's" picture was on the wall near our table). So that was fun. We were there on a weeknight and from the conversations I could hear I gathered that... More

Went there for lunch and the waiter forgot to put in our appetizer so straight to lunch it was. Our meals were good but not great. That along with the missed appetizer gives it the average review.

Came for dinner and had one of the best meals of my life. I had the cold clams as an appetizer and the ice crab legs as entree. Super delicious and affordable.

I hadn't been to Lenny's in awhile, glad I returned. The menu is very extensive, so much to choose from, it's hard to decide. We enjoyed nice, fresh, littleneck clams, seafood marinara and the lobster ravioli special. The seafood marinara was a nice portion filled with an abundance of calamari, scungilli, Shrimp and mussels. The lobster ravioli had an Alfredo... More

Went there for a party. I ordered the chicken tenders and fries for my son. The were over cooked and tasted like the were fried on the same oil as the fish. They were awful. The plates were chipped up .

I went to visit family in New York in Oct 2016 and the first Italian restaurant we visited was Lenny's Clam Bar. We shared a dozen cherry stone clams on the half shell and had a plate of Clam Linguine for dinner. With the bread that was provided, none of us could finish the delicious meal. Thankfully, we had leftovers... More

We ate here on an overnight layover in JFK area. I got the Seafood Marinara: shrimp (great!), mussels (ok), scungilli (very good) and calamari (a little tough) sautéed in a marinara sauce. served with salad (house dressing is very good) and linguine. I tried the fried calamari and it was prepared well: light batter and not tough. The clams were... More
