    In our six-per-annum visits to New York, The Lambs Club was always one of our MUSTS. Thanks to our latest experience, it no longer is; we probably will not return. What happened? A change in the kitchen staff? The salad starter was simple and pleasant, augering a memorable meal. The main courses? A total disappointment. The broth accompanying the seafood medley hinted of genius; the dish itself was bland and boring. This was equally true for the chicken dish; a totally uninspired concoction. Seriously, how can one mess up a chicken dish? At least the pastry chef shone. Once the waiter realized we were not pleased, he avoided our table and other servers took over. Really? I mean: REALLY? We tipped accordingly.

    But probably better apres-theater so you can linger over the pasta served with the most delicious looking peak season white truffles; I wanted to so babdly; but the prix-fixed for before 6:15 is prepared to the highest standards and works well for us. This is our second pre-theater meal at Lambs Club and I selected it again even tho it was a little further from the theater;it was so wonderful! It was much busier on Friday night, with a very exciting buzz! One problem noted this time: we were three, so a chair was placed opposite seats on a banquette in the far back of this relatively small restaurant;as it filled up and service picked up, our friend's chair was bumped as this became a major passage way;I'm sure they can do better next time!

    The Lambs Club epitomizes the pinnacle of dining experiences. The service is impeccable from the moment you are greeted until you depart. The dining room staff works as a team and flawlessly keeps your drinks filled, napkins folded, and is attentive without hovering. I've never had any dish that I didn't enjoy...I am a fairly adventurous eater and try new items frequently. That said, I often order something at The Lambs Club that isn't normally a "favorite" of mine because the talented kitchen inevitably prepares it in a way that blows my mind. The deconstructed gyro, shaved brussels, and pretzel bites with anchovy butter were the selections this time and were all fantastic. We will return during every trip to Manhattan. Thank you.

    We chose this restaurant from an array of celebrity chef restaurants in NY and we were very disappointed. The manager, John had to salvage the entire experience about halfway through. He had to take over and he actually took our main course plates away and we basically went back and started from scratch. The waiter we had was absolutely terrible. We waited 10 minutes to place our drink order, he finally came to take our drink order and asked if we are ready to order ourfood? We waited 20 minutes to get our martinis and it arrived almost at the same time as our appetizers. We went into our main course with no wine and we were never offered any wine. The only thing that salvage the entire experience was John the manager.

    Poached halibut was not cooked all the way through (they took it off the bill), Strip steak ordered medium rare served medium well and not a particularly good cut of meat. Chilled corn soup very good as was the bread. Service was very good. This was my daughter's continuing quest to eat at all the restaurants owned by Chopped judges. Zakarian--you've been chopped!

    We had dinner for 2 on Saturday Night. It was a special occasion and we requested a nice table. We were taken to the back dining room and seated at a very nice table. The restaurant is smart, quiet but not stuffy in attitude at all. Service is efficient with plenty of time between courses. The wine list is substantial with some interesting selections. There is plenty of choice for all tastes and the prices verge on the reasonable to the exquisite. Food quality is very good but both courses came out only barely warm (mushroom Consume with rib) and the lamb main course. The Consume for the lamb course was too delicately flavoured and a robust Jus would accompany the dish better. Very good but missing something to raise it to the top level.

    The Lamb's Club- nestled close to the theaters, it offers a very first-class dining experience...pre-theater menu is reasonably priced, but the restaurant is on the pricey side, generally speaking. Food is beautifully prepared, service is definitely upscale. Very quiet dining during the early hours, quite full and robust by the time we left to make our eight o'clock curtain.

    If you seek a first-class dining experience before wading out into the Times Square theater district, look no farther than the Lamb's Club. I keep coming back for its pre-theater menu, it's stellar service, and up-dated ambience. Alone, or for couples & groups, you will be comforted and treated like a VIP.

    For foodies and oenophiles alike, there is much to make this a palatal playground. We've done drinks in the upstairs lounge, and have always enjoyed dining in the atmosphere of their dining room. Last Friday, however, left us a bit disappointed. We arrived for our 7:15 reservation and were quickly led to our table. Sommelier AJ (who I guessed recognized us) quickly came over and gave us all a glass of champagne on the house. That's where the service ended as once the "theater crowd" left, so did the staff. Our server, who seemed to be the only one left in the place after 7:45, took a long time to bring drinks, take our order, never checked on the table, never asked if we wanted more cocktails or wine. It was disheartening, to say the least.

    We ate at the Lambs Club for a pre-theatre dinner. It was very good. They offered both a pre-theatre fixed menu or you can order from the regular menu. The service was perfect. The meal was one of the best I've ever had. The noise level was a bit high for us, we found it hard to have a conversation. The dining room filled very quickly and everyone seemed to be talking - so I suppose that is understandable. The restaurant is conveniently located within walking distance of most theatres and Times Square. We would definitely revisit The Lambs Club.

    Dined on 9/20/2014
    My Open Table reservation included a "wish" to have Dover sole, my favorite. I'd looked at their menu before I'd made the reservation and didn't see it. So, it on my reservation was more of a wish than a request. When I arrived I asked if they had it, and they said, "yes!" I was overjoyed! I'm still not sure if they ordered it for me or if they often have it. They seemed to remember that the last time I had Dover sole there, the chef deboned it at the table - they seemed to be prepared to do that again before I asked! To put my request in context, the last time I was there was early June, and the current visit was in late September. btw, the Dover sole meuniere was superb.

    The food is everyting you would expect from an iron chef. The foie gras and chocolate mousse were the best parts of the meal. The black sea bass was good and the Amish chicken was very moist with nice accompaniments. The butterhead lettuce salad was beautifully presented. Our server started out very pleasant and friendly but towards the end of the meal seamed rude--like he would just as soon forget us. Everyone else that brought food to our table or cleared dishes was extremely courteous and friendly.

The staff is attentive, polite and respectful from the moment you enter. I always feel welcome and special there and best of all, the food and drinks are phenomenal. Whether it's a special occasion or a Wednesday afternoon, you can't go wrong here. Big hint, ALWAYS make a reservation in advance.

    I made reservations for my boyfriend and me at The Lambs Club to celebrate our anniversary. We got to the restaurant earlier than we expected so we decided to hang out at the upstairs lounge. Our food was amazing starting from the complimentary bread, amazing entree and sides, all the way to a nice little surprise dessert at the end that said "Happy Anniversary" on chocolate. I was truly touched by the thoughtfulness of the restaurant and the staff. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone whether it'd be for a birthday party, special romantic dinner, or just to eat delicious food!

    I first dined at The Lambs Club Bar for Restaurant Week in July, and was so impressed with the food, drinks, decor and service, I picked The Lambs Club for my birthday dinner. The tasting menu featured seasonal tomatoes; with the wine pairings, it was lovely! In addition to the food and service, which is awesome, the ambiance of the room is beautiful. I especially love the dark wood, and red seating. While it may look stuffy and business-like, the buzz from fellow diners is lively without being distracting. If you like intimate and stimulating surroundings to enhance your dining experience, you will love this room.

Had to flag our waiter down several times throughout the evening to request another round of drinks, finally got tired of doing so. The room is beautiful, so a very nice ambiance in the theatre district.
