Diner Reviews
  • "The Lambs Club Bar is a gorgeous art deco bar in Midtown. When I visited for the first time last year, it was considerably more quiet and the service was more attentive. The food is quite good, but you're really paying for the ambiance."

  • "Fantastic art deco decor. Mediocre food (except the lamb meatballs, delicious!), great drinks, & very good service. There honestly weren't many people in the bar although our server was a little difficult to flag down she was exceedingly friendly when we were successful. I suggest you sit at the bar and have a drink but go across the street to Un, Deux, Trois for food"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Made a reservation in the Bar and were up-sold upon entering to their main dining room. I suspect the Bar would have had a little higher energy and perhaps a lower tab(?). Service was quite slow."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "As the old joke goes the food was bad and the portions small ! The prices can't be justified Lovely place and the staff was nice if you serve a well done hamburger (!6 oz and $22.) instead of medium rare as requested you should hire a new cook. the place was empty except for 6 patrons Friday night. "

  • "This was a very attractive bar room in a very beautiful hotel with windows looking down on 44th St. The waitstaff was very attentive. They make great and generous Manhattans in nice glasses and with solid, clear ice. We enjoyed our burgers before heading off to a play. Most of the theaters are within easy walking distance, so this bar would also be great after a play."

  • "Music on Wednesdays and Thursdays a plus. Bar food choices adequate but not exciting. Guys: invest in nicer wine stemware!! "

  • "Enjoyed drinks in the Lambs Club Bar on a Saturday night (post theatre). Great experience overall and I would recommend this spot to anyone looking for a drink in a cool spot. "

  • "On an Iron Chef tour, we chose Jeff Zakarian's Lamb's Club. They seated us on the Mezzanine ( not by request) & handed us a limited menu. We asked for a full menu & the "manager approved our request". We shared the hamachi crudo- delectable, with a light lime flavor, a roasted carrot salad & the lamb entree. While the preparation was beautiful & tasty, the lamb itself was poorly butchered, a bit tough & tasteless. The carrot salad was also tasteless. The wait staff was attentive & pleasant, the space was attractive & it was easy to converse. The cab by the glass was Merryvale- which was divine! Overall a pleasant evening, but had higher hopes for the food."

  • "Wonderful atmosphere, cocktails, and menu. Surprisingly quiet early on a Saturday."

  • "Great for Restaurant week. Bread were fine. Close to Belasco theater."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Unlike many reviews, the service was nice maybe because there were only 2 tables during lunch time. My colleague and I went for restaurant week lunch. It was so empty. The food was not as extraordinary as I expected and my duck was quite salty."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Lovely, sleek setting with excellent food, creative menu items, good service and drinks. Pricey, so Restaurant Week is a good deal."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "The Lambs Club was decent but wasn't what I expected. The staff was friendly and the food was ok, but nothing to comment on. We were seated on the upper level which is more casual than what we wanted for dinner, it's more of a bar/small plates scene. (But be warned, the drinks are very expensive.) Apparently the lower level doesn't open until later in the evening? Also, I know the atmosphere was going for vintage modern but it just felt old to me. I was expecting something more upscale based on what I saw online."

  • "We ate lunch at The Lamb's Club Bar for my SO's birthday. We went with the Restaurant Week menu, and the choices were fairly limited but ultimately proved delicious. I had the celery root soup that was poured tableside and it was the best soup I've ever eaten. I had the cod as an entrée and it was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and the pomegranates on the side added just the right amount of flavor. We had the charred broccoli as a side ($9 extra), which was the only thing I wasn't completely crazy about. Chocolate flourless cake was our chosen desert and it was very good. The service was great and the décor is beautiful. We will definitely go back!"

  • "We loved the ambience and small plates upstairs on a wintry Friday evening. The cheeses, veal meatballs, cocktails and deserts were all wonderful! Pricey if you're not used to Manhattan."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Climbing the stairs to the Lambs Club Bar,music is what you'll notice first- not the very clubby, well-appointed "1930's-ish" decor. That won't cease unless you ask nicely, as we did this Friday evening pre-theater, for a lowered volume to the "soundtrack" of after-work cocktail groups around the room. Definitely not the venue for "low talkers" and the hard-of-hearing, the food is well-presented and, overall, delicious; service is slow-an overassigned/undermanned wait staff handles duties with grace and professional carriage. Even with Restaurant Week, our table of four racked up a $300 bill (finding a relatively inexpensive bordeaux for $55 in an extensive wine list) Portions are small, and there's the $5 cup of coffee at the end. Really?"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "The music max in the Bar level was great but consider a lower sound level"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Outstanding menu, and great decor, but if you expect service for your $$$$$ meal, go somewhere else."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "We sat in the bar area, which I often prefer, and it was perfect. It seemed a bit more casual than the restaurant part downstairs. The menu was very unique and everything we ordered was delicious from cocktails through dessert."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Went there pre theatre with someone who was there many years ago. The decor and ambiance were great. The menu was lovely and well executed. The service was just a little snooty."
    Dined on 7/30/2013
  • "It was like dining in a Baz Luhrmann film. Lots of red lights with beautiful art deco rooms and a few modern highlights. The food was quite good, although overshadowed by the ridiculous overprice, and the service was very good. (No vegetables or starch with the fish dish? It was one big hunk of protein and a little bit of sauce...sides were extra. I dine in NYC a lot but this was too much.) The music was very loud, and it was an odd mix of Beyonce-esque rap and modern and Van Morrison. Dine there to see the interior or for a drink at the bar before or after an event, but don't eat there. I would like to try the main dining room once but I'm sure it will also be way overpriced given the quality of the meal."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "First, the good news. The food at the Lambs Club Bar is outstanding. It's delicious and distinctive. The decor is very impressive. You feel like you are in the middle of a glamorous '40s movie. All of the staff who we dealt with were friendly and helpful. Now, the bad news. On the recent Saturday night that my husband and I dined there, the Lambs Club Bar was terribly understaffed. There only seemed to be one bus person and two waitresses. The manager and host helped out but there just weren't enough staffers to adequately serve the nearly full room. Our water glasses were not refilled the entire time that we were there. One patron actually followed one of the two waitresses around and almost dragged her to his table to take their order."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "Every time I've gone to The Lambs Club-Bar I've had a most pleasing experience. The drinks, atmosphere and great food are the perfect accompaniment to spending time with someone special or a group of friends. The service is outstanding."
    Dined on 12/18/2013
  • "Good food. VERY slow service. Love the ambiance. Front of house needs to get its act together, and fast, or nothing else matters."
    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "Good food, fair prices, lively ambiance. Perfect for pre-theater."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "Went for my Dad's 92nd birthday with theater across the street. Food was fabulous and pre fixe theater menu a great deal. Chef Zakarian was even there. My Dad can't eat salt and they modified his dinner to accommodate him."
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "over priced waste of time. go to a restaurant that care more about the feeding you than looking and acting cool. I would not go back and would not recommend this place."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "Food was excellent, but the service was slow and a bit disorganized. It look quite a while to get our drinks."
    Dined on 11/8/2013
  • "We were seated upstairs in the bar area. Perhaps we needed to specify a nicer table downstairs, rather than a small bar table. Overall, not very impressive. My chicken was dry, limited menu, not up to par as far as a "nice" manhattan dinner. Oh well, it was convenient for theater. Would not return."
    Dined on 10/30/2013
  • "For whatever reason, when we arrived at 5:30 for pre-theater dinner, we were seated in the 2nd floor "mezzanine" area (aka the bar). If there are other patrons present, the bar may not feel like an airport lounge, but it was empty. So what was supposed to feel like an elegant dinner felt like quick snacks before a flight. That said, the food was really very good. And the service was quick and friendly. But I honestly don't know if I would recommend this to a friend, and I can't decide if it was a hot spot, romantic, etc. Whatever you do, request the dining room downstairs. I made the reservations months ago, so I'm not sure why we were shuttled to the annex, but it was not a great experience."
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "The atmosphere and seating were excellent. Felt like a private club. The food was so-so. I liken it to going to foreign country, recognizing some favorite dishes on the menu but when fork meets mouth, you realize 'oh, wait. Not the same dish at all.' I was there on business and our server was very short and quite unpleasant. This is never a comfortable feeling when you're entertaining clients. Would go back for drinks only."
    Dined on 10/10/2013
  • "Great food, but went for a post theatre dinner with an 11:00 Saturday night reservation. Arriving at 10:45 we were unceremoniously shunted upstairs to a dark noisy bar and quickly informed by the sole waitress that the kitchen closed at 11:00 so we had better order now if we wanted dinner. Why take late night reservations in the theatre district when the kitchen is closed? The lone waitress never returned ans after close to an hour I finally asked the hostess to send our bill. Will definitely not return."

  • "Ideal & perfect in every way; except noise level was VIBRANT+++/a bit too loud for good conversation. Otherwise, a memorable venue (decor, service, food, wine/cocktails...)"
    Dined on 10/1/2013
  • "Stopped for a post theater drink. Place was empty. Service attentive (no one else there). Drinks well crafted Would try again at an earlier hour /weekday"

  • "My husband and I booked a table at The Lambs Club during Restaurant Week. It was somewhere I had read about previously so was pleased to see it participating in this great event. It was our first night ever in New York so we were hoping for something pretty memorable. The Lambs Club did not disappoint. The setting is wonderful - there's a really great vibe; the service was outstanding (attentive, helpful, prompt, genuine); and the food was fantastic...beautifully and creatively presented and totally delicious. Thank you so much!"

  • "We visited the Lamb's Club during restaurant week. This we pre-theatre and our 9 year old daughter was with us. She very much enjoyed the hanger steak, artichoke appetizer and dessert. I ordered scallops which were quite good, but was presented with 3 scallops. Perhaps 5-6 scallops would have been a more appropriate portion. Our service was wonderful. Daniel, very much tried to get us served in time for our 7 pm curtain. He then recommended that we return for dessert, after the show. Daniel was on-top of everything. What I found annoying was the very loud music. Because of the loud music, the conversational voices of the diners kept on escalating to a shouting tone."
    Dined on 8/15/2013
  • "The food was astounding as expected. But one day prior to my dining day, I was called by a staff member and she asked if I was going to order from the Restaurant Week prix fixe menu. My suspicion would be that all Restaurant Week go-ers would be seated in a non-prime area (which my group of 4 was). If this is the seating process, that is a tad unfair. Everyone should have an equal restaurant experience regardless of what menu they order from. But maybe my hypothesis could be wrong. Other than that, the food was amazing. I ordered the dive scallops and they were cooked near perfect (a tad overcooked). The hanger steak was on par if not better than most steakhouses I've visited. The service was mediocre, no friendly exchange of words at all."
    Dined on 8/16/2013
  • "Best scallops I ever had. Wine pairing option was perfect. We tried the Mezzanine bar out as part of restaurant week and were delighted. Will be back in near future for main dining room experience."

  • "The food was very good but it was too noisy.Too bad!"
    Dined on 8/14/2013
  • "I've been to Lambs Club before, but just for snacks and drinks. It being Restaurant Week, I thought it was an opportune time to have a meal there. Went there for lunch at 1PM. They sat us in the empty upstairs area instead of the bustling dining area. The appetizers were nothing special or interesting (Burrata, Bitter greens salad or Gazpacho). My main course was way too salty (Duck Rigatini). My friend's main course (Roasted Cod) was fantastic. The desserts were phenomenal. Maybe I'm spoiled by Danny Meyer-style service, but interrupting a conversation to ask if you want another cocktail is a tad rude. It was nice to see Geoffrey Zakarian hanging out downstairs, but he may want to check in on his kitchen and staff."
