  • Disappointing Service

    Dined on 8/29/2014
    I've been a patron of The Lamb's Club for years. As an editor, I came often for business meals, it was also my go-to before BW and a constant recommendation to out-of-towners. My best friend was here on Friday and our waiter Bhupendr was unhelpful at best. She is vegetarian, he said nothing on the menu with any sort of meat or fish accent could be altered and made her feel like a pest for even asking. She was so disappointed, being a huge fan of Chef Zhakarian and ordered the sole item he said was meat free, a plain pasta. Then when I tried to order the tasting menu, where there were several veg items we could share, he said no, they couldn't time it right. Needless to say we both left unhappy and I'll be trying somewhere new going forward.

    This is one of our favorite spots and go when we want a nice upscale meal in the theater district. This time the food was terrfic and creative as always but the service left a lot to be desired. So much so that we may not return. The waiter was efficient, I will say that for him. He was also curt and argumentative with little interest in providing a pleasant evening. This has never happened there before. All of the staff has clearly been trained to cater to the customer but some do it a whole lot more graciously than others. There were several other service issues that evening so perhaps an off night. They were certainly all efficient and the food was delicious but we were glad to leave by the end of the evening.

    I don't give "outstanding"reviews out very easily; only two others in all the time I have been with O.T., and I think a lot of my enthusiasm has to do with the pure shock of finding this gem after all the theater we've been to and all the HISTORY it has!(We have a favorite place we frequent,not on O.T.); you are greeted in such a lovely manner, in front and by your waiter;I am adventurous in trying wine, but our waiter made a great choice I did not know;the prix fix had great selections from the menu;BUT the menu is really focused and makes you want to try ALL! I can't wait to return WITHOUT going to the theater; go now, and don't wait for a show; all is worth the wait if you have not been here before, or even if you have;ENJOY all this!

    Our food was great, the dining room well decorated and quiet, the menu impressive and the Lambs Club was really set apart by the excellent waiter and his knowledge of the dietary restrictions (food allergies) of one guest. Appropriate courses were suggested (including information on when it would be OK to taste others food or not due to the inclusion of nuts). We really appreciate the attention to detail and had a great time. We will be back!!!

    and experience the tomato tasting menu. We had it last night with the wine pairing and it was an exceptional dining experience. The creatively prepared selections were extraordinary and the accompanying wines were outstanding. Add to that truly excellent service, perfectly timed for our theater appointment, and we enjoyed a marvelous pre-theater dining experience. We will certainly return, and will be looking for the next special tasting offering.

The entire staff served us in a timely manner and made sure we were out the door in time for opening curtain. We never felt rushed.

    Overall the food was very enjoyable, service excellent and the entire experience well worth the price. I only wish they had used local farms instead of ones in CA. I was a little taken back when the waiter told us the tomatoes came from CA. How can you say that to a girl from Jersey!!?? Hopefully he was kidding :).

    Loving the Food Network, I was thrilled to eat at Iron Chef Zakarian's restaurant. We were not disappointed! Two of us had the Loup de Mer and two had the Amish chicken. Everything was amazing. Our only negative was the wine. Being from California, we are very familiar with wonderful oaky Chardonnay. The wines were over priced. The wine expert who came to help brought two Chardonnays that were horrible.

    we were anticipating a great experience and left with it was just ok. the restaurant was nice but not spectacular. the table were difficult to sit at as the bases are large and rounded making it impossible to rest your feet flat. the food was good but not what I would expect from an Iron Chef. The wine list was awesome and they allowed us to try several wines at no charge to see which we preferred. dessert tasted like it came right out of the box very dissappointed

    I've come to respect the words, opinions and advice from Chef Geoffrey Zakarian on the show "Chopped". Becoming familiar with him, I've desired to visit the Lamb's Club for quite sometime and Friday was that opportunity. Chef Zakarian's cuisine was quite the delight as the culinary fare delighted our palette. The meals were most approprately named and both the creative preparation and service methodology served not only to enhance the dishes' flavours and receipt but optical pleasure. The Chilled Sweet Corn soup and Steak tartare were excellent to star off the evening only to be out done by the Amish Chicken. Great wine and desert but the Spagetti was unexpectedly outstanding! Great attentive service and art deco atmosphere. Recommended!

    Hit or miss on some dishes. Black cuttle fish ink pasta (can't rememberwas not seasoned- needed salt and lemon to add some life. Portions are very small. Strawberry mousse dessert was interesting. Jellied candies on mousse detracted from the less-than-yummy dessert. Other guests enjoyed their entres. Very loud even for a NYC night spot.

    Try to imagine elegance, modern up-dating of a historic locale, excellent food & service amid the turmoil and mediocrity that is Times Square dining. Up until recently, you couldn't find it. I have belatedly discovered The Lambs Club, the restaurant attached to the Hotel Chatwal in the mid-40's between 6th & 7th. Highly recommended before a nearby show. A pre-theater prix fixe menu is a great way to pare the prices, too. Yet you will not be cheated on food preparation and presentation. I've only been there three times in the last 6 months, but never disappointed.

    The service was spectacular. Unfortunately, the food was less than mediocre. The only thing that was good was the octopus. It was cooked perfectly and the sauce that complemented it was extraordinary. I had the hanger steak and my friend had the stuffed chicken. My steak looked like little tree stumps surrounding a bed of TOO buttery spinach. It also had round croutons that remind me of the brown bread pieces in Gardetto's. At the end of the meal, all we wanted was the check. It took about 40 min after we finished our 'complementary' dessert to get the bill. By complementary, I mean a waiter made a mistake and our waiter took off the candle and the happy birthday chocolate and gave it to us. We will never be back.

    My partner and I enjoyed a great evening here, cocktails upstairs and dinner in the main restaurant. We were here over the 4th of July weekend and, I have to admit, it was a bit more touristy than on past visits -- people were wearing shorts and t-shirts, which is not matching with the otherwise plush surroundings. Food and drinks all beautifully presented, tasted great and service was perfect.

    With mixed reviews and some hesitancy on our part, we arrived for a late dinner. The octopus was excellent, rich pasta Bolognese equally good, and the Cote de Boeuf outstanding. Wine selection by Juan was marvelous; he selected a southwestern French red that perfectly complemented our meal. This was an old style meal that satisfied and reminded me of a by-gone era when a white coated waiter ensured a perfect meal. Loved it. "Chris" was our waiter and he managed our meal in a way that charmed us.

    My first time having dinner at the Lambs Club was a very positive surprise. The food was beyond excellent. I had the lettuce and tuna tartare appetizers and each was superb. In particular, the lettuce was such a simple dish but the mix of flavors was unique, surprising and perfectly balanced. The Loup de Mer was the best mix of crisped skin and tender meat I have had in a long time. I also tried my friend's hanger steak and it was perfect. Serious foodies must try this place.
