    We had a lovely pre-theater dinner in the bar. The food was amazing as well as the service. We were a bit close to the actual bar and there was rather loud music. The location is very beautiful in gorgeous art deco style. We will definitely eat here again and try the main dining room which was also lovely.

    Thought it would be a good light option before the theater - it was light all right. The apps were fine but the main courses were about the same size (and much more expensive ). Sticks with drinks and the apps and eat a meal elsewhere. Also the server was plain frigid - I kept thinking "I'm not really a waitress" - not sure she had a facial expression other then dour until it came time for the tip, at which point I detected a glimmer of a smile.

We ate downstairs the first time and we ate at the bar the second time. Both experiences were great and the food was beyond great. Everything was prepared very well and all the ingredients were fresh.

    The Lamb's Club is one of the most beautiful restaurants in the theatre district, but our service was so awful that we nearly missed an 8:00 curtain with a 6:30 reservation (and we were a half a block from the theatre). We never saw our waitress again after our orders were taken, but no one else seemed to have responsibility for our table. We told everyone that we were pre-theatre yet our food- light bar fare- did not arrive till almost 7:30. We could barely get drinks and had to chase someone down for our check. What should have been a perfect pre-theatre meal was nothing but stressful. I had seen other reviews slamming the service here but thought perhaps they had taken notice and had improved so we took a chance. Big mistake.

By the time our appetizers came we knew we were in trouble! !!! I told the waitress we need to make an. 8:00 pm show. Well the short of it our food never came. Left angry and hungry.

    The dinner was a complete failure on the part of the wait staff and kitchen. After 30 min of waiting I had to ask the hostess to send someone over to take our drink order and give us menus. At that time we explained that we had tickets to a Broadway show and wanted to make certain the kitchen could complete our entrees on time. We were assured there would be no problem. Next our drink orders took 15 min and were wrong. Our orders were finally taken and again we reminded our server of our time constraint. She assured us we would fine. 1 hour later our food arrived but we had only 15 min to "enjoy" our meal. The only consolation is the manager agreed that our horrendous experience deserved to be comp'd. I expected much better from Zakarian

    Considering that we decided to keep our reservations despite the storm, it was such a relief to be greeted by such a friendly and helpful staff. Our server was extremely friendly and was always willing to answer any questions we had. What she didn't know she found out the answer. Starting with the bread, which we were told was homemade, the food was great. The bread was served warm,which not all restaurants do but should. Appetizers were good, I had the lambs club salad,my sister had the crudo of hamachi, my friend had the burrata. The entrees were the best of the 3 courses. My friend had the duck rillette. I must admit I wish I had picked that. Crispy and tasty. My sister and I had the short ribs. I wish they had been a bit more tender.

    Service was superb. Incredibly friendly staff, quick, felt well taken care of. My comment has to do with the food. My duck was far too salty, almost inedible, the mousse cake and passion fruit were just fine, hamachi was well balanced but on the plain side. Sad to say that what I enjoyed most was the bread on the table (which in all honesty was quite delicious). Wouldn't go back for the food, but thank you for the experience.

    I had high hopes for Geoffrey Zakarian. Crudo of Hamachi - Nice presentation but nothing special. Strong sudachi overpowered other taste. Crispy Skin Duck Rillette - Duck was excellent. Tons of meat. Shredded duck topped with a crispy skin and shaped into a bar. Sauce was too salty and the broccolini burned. Honey Pistachio Cake - Cake was too dry. Sorbet too sour. Me and my friend ordered tea after our meal. It took forever to arrive. May they have to boil water? Jon ordered a Peppermint tea and I, Green. We both got Earl Grey. We told the waiter; he said they were correct. He took the teas away and we still got charged $12. Pointed it out and on the new bill, we still got charged $6. At that point, we just gave up.

    Had a wonderful Restaurant Week dinner with friends. The food was terrific, and the ambience was even better. The unusually awesome soundtrack (Peggy Lee's "Fever" in a theater district restaurant?!) was supplemented by LIVE JAZZ at the end of our dining experience. It was terrific. This place is spendy for me-- hence restaurant week-- but I'd love to return for a cocktail or a meal, when I'm feeling flush.

    We had a great dinner at the Lambs Club as part of restaurant week. The pre-fix menu had a variety of options and had a wine pairing we took advantage of. The building/space itself is really nice - very art decco. Only negative is that they weren't really clear about what hours they were offering the Restaurant week menu for. The website just said that they were offering it for dinner but then it let me make a reservation (via the restaurant week site) for 4pm (we had an event to get to). However, they only offer that menu starting at 5pm. Fortunately we were able to relax with a drink and then then moved us to another table at 5pm and everything worked out

    Beautiful ambiance and welcoming staff. Wine list is well thought-out, but a bit pricey. All of the food was over-salted...not necesarry because it would have been delicious with less seasoning. Best items from the kitchen that night were the bread and the desserts. Perhaps the Iron Chef left the kitchen to judge "Chopped" that evening?

    We went to the Lambs Club for dinner during restaurant week. Since I had made the reservations under a nycgo.com link, we were seated in the mezzanine lounge area instead of in the main dining area. We ordered from the pre-fix theater menu and had the wine paring with our dinner. We learned that you could only order from the regular menu or pre-fix theater menu in the dining room. While the decor was lovely in the mezzanine lounge area, I found it to be very noisy due to the happy hour crowd that was in the upstairs. I think I would prefer to dine downstairs for the amount that our dinner cost us!
