"The four of us had a wonderful time dining on delicious southern cuisine at LL Dents that satisfied our soul. Just as soul music touches deep into your emotions, so to does Dents food. And oh Lord that Peach Cobbler was smoking!!!"

- Oliver Patterson & family, Hollis, NY

"A group of us from work went in tonight for our dinner break. Our server, Keith, was great, especially highlighting the specials. The food was outstanding, (Mom, don't look at this) better than homemade. We had a special treat when Ms. Dent came and sat with us and brought a sample of a drink she made. Go out of your way and try this place. It's worth the trip."

- Vincent Bellissimo, Oyster Bay, NY

"I knew I was at home when Chef Leisa not only left a conversation she was having in the restaurant to assist my disabled mom through her front doors, but she sat with us for a moment to chit chat. Lillian was a very gracious host and all staff members were pleasant! I would like to sum up my experience in this way: "....some of the best days of my life have not happened yet." Discovering and dining at LL Dent was one of the best days of my life. I now know where to go when I want some great southern food close to home. Thanks for a delightful experience."

- Michelle McDonald, Huntington, NY

"I love receiving emails to see what's cookin' from time to time. My son will not let me forget how delicious your mashed potatoes were. We went to a soul food restaurant for my son's 23rd birthday on Saturday and he ordered mashed potatoes. One bite and he replied, " Nope. Not like LL Dent!"

- Marilyn, Out of State

"Discovered your restaurant by accident while waiting in line for Red Lobster. SO GLAD we switched to you. Have not stopped thinking of you since. Leisa, do you have a cookbook? I wish I lived closer, I would ask to work in your kitchen for nothing in the hopes of gaining some of your delicious recipes. Can't wait to come back...and of course your mother's charm was the appetizer supreme."

- Roy Johnson, Woodside, NY

"Once again, I feel compelled to write about our wonderful dining experience at LL Dent's. My husband and I have often had wonderful meals. We have shared either meals or conversations about our meals at LL Dent with friends and family. My friends & colleagues from PS. 40 now come quite often.

Today, however, we had a brand new dining experience. We came out for your Sunday Brunch. I can't express enough how fabulous our dining experience was. As usual, the food was wonderful and the atmosphere was pleasant, but the hospitality was phenomenal. You are made to feel at home surrounded by family (the ones you like being with) and friends with down home charm and style.

When we left this afternoon, we both felt fulfilled. Food wise and inner self wise. You leave LL Dent's feeling happy."

- Jeannine Brent

"The Fabulous Lillian and the Lovely Leisa cater to customers that appreciate impeccable hospitality and exquisite delicacies. Yes, there is a 'Southern Flair,' but the chef prepares delicious delightful delicacies for the finest dining experience. If ever there was restaurant that takes great care in all aspects of your dining experience, it's 'LL Dent.'"

- Bernard McArthur

"I wanted to thank you for a wonderful dining experience. The food and service was great, not to mention the atmosphere felt like we were at a big family dinner."

- Philip Hessel

"LL Dent is serious about their food and their hospitality!"

- Brenda Wilson and Family

"Every time I come, you guys make me feel like I'm back home
in South Carolina! Love the people and the food!"

- Christopher "Jazz"

"Some guests gave up their table for us on Mothers Day - so I know
I need to come back. It feels like family here! - Thanks!"

- Medea Myers

"I am from Sullivan's Island off the coast of Charleston, South Carolina.
Your food brought me right back to the "old South"... Thank you for great
food! Great tea too!"

- Ryan Devlin

"Taste buds on a journey to Heaven!"

- Lewis & Shelly Knapp's daughter
