One of the most appalling services by a waiter that I have ever experienced. My daughter ordered the $46 filet well done. The waiter seemed to be trying to discourage her by saying it would take 30 minutes and asked if she'd like it butterflied instead. She said she didn't mind the wait and did not want it butterflied. He then tried to convince her to order the chicken. She reiterated that she didn't mind. After approximately 15 minutes her steak was brought out and it was butterflied. The waiter did not stop by the table at all to check on how everything was and when we got his attention and pointed out that the steak had indeed been prepared incorrectly , all he said is that he didn't tell them to do that; not would she like another steak or was there anything he could do? Not only was it butterflied, but it was also unevenly cooked and certainly not well done. She asked him to take back part of the steak and cook it further. When he brought it back, once again he didn't stop by to check if the problem has been corrected. When we were able to get his attention again, she asked if she could have some more of the butter that was on the original steak. He then came back with an ice cold serving of the butter to go on the cold steak. He explained that it was cold because they had put everything away for the night. He brought the check and then we asked to see a manager and she explained that the problems were due to the the time of the reservation and that the kitchen was closing. We realize it was late, but it was after the theater and if the service and food we're going to be compromised, they shouldn't accept reservations at that time. She agreed to remove the steak from our ticket but I don't feel as if we should've had to ask.I have never in my life not left a tip, but if ever a service warranted no tip, this was it!! I cannot adequately express our disappointment that this was our final experience of our special mother, daughter trip to New York.

A very pleasant surprise find for a restaurant that has been around a long time. We had a great pre theater brunch in a fantastic ambiance. The only thing that was a negative was the live music. Annoying.

Food is always good, but portion sizes continuously are getting smaller and prices continuously going up. Only staff waiter on duty and service was very negligible. I have gone to this restaurant about 5-6 times, but probably will not be back.

We chose the restaurant as our last dinner in NYC and it was a perfect ending to our perfect visit.

We started with the Aged Steak Tartare and the Heirloom Beets. Whitcraft Chardonnay was perfect - a handcrafted California wine - my absolute favorite and a wonderful surprise to find in NY. Next, we delighted in the Agnolotti then dove into the Colorado Lamb and Filet Mignon - divine! Dinner wrapped up with a cappuccino and the chocolate mousse, with the many textures of yum.

Thanks to our waiter for his excellent service and conversation. The night was memorable!

After watching so many episodes of Chopped, I expected better. Food was good but overpriced for what you got. Wine was terrific, but if you charge $22 a glass, at least serve a healthy pour. Service was horrible. Waiter had an attitude. Wait staff doesn’t understand the basics about elegant table clearing etiquette (don’t clear the plates until everyone is finished and don’t ask me 5 times if I’m finished). And plopped plates on the table like a Jersey waitress serving breakfast in a diner on a Sunday morning. Don’t care how famous you are, if you want repeat business, your service needs to match the price you’re charging. Disappointed.

I found the restaurant to be extremely expensive. My main criticism was the wine list. I asked for a glass of the house chardonnay and I was getting a glass of wine for $38. The minute I realized this was by the glass and not the bottle I asked for a cheaper chardonnay and I called the waiter over and he said there were just 2, $38 and $42. I ended up with a Riesling for $12.00. Someone who ate there after the play said his waiter offered him a $22.00 glass of Chardonnay which my waiter did not.

The restaurant is very well located in the mid-town area. We were exited to try this restaurant since we are fans of Food Network, and always try to go to new places everywhere we visit, but were a little disappointed. The best part of the dinner was the bread. We found the restaurant to be overpriced. We suggest the chef to provide a tasting menu where people can choose from the different dishes in the menu instead of having only one option.

Service & ambiance are outstanding but the food left me a little disappointed. The gnocchi was small and hard— flavorful, but not the right consistency. Very small portions considering the price. I enjoyed the experience once but don't think I would go back.

Everything about The Lamb's Club was excellent from start to finish. The cocktail, wine and dinner menu were all impressive and every item we had from each was wonderful. The wait staff included an onsite sommelier which was a fun, new experience for us. I also tried steak tartare for the first time and was very happy with it. My lamb entree was superb and my boyfriend's halibut was delectable. We decided not to have dessert after our meal but as we were walking out, the coat check gentleman suggested we check out the bar upstairs which we did and ended up having dessert and drinks. We were also very grateful that there were available tables so close to Christmas (we dined on Dec 23rd) and we were very surprised that the restaurant was not more full because everything was phenomenal and we would definitely visit again.

The word "Club" is exactly right for this restaurant--one feels as if in an old fashioned gentleman's club in London. The ambience is warm and inviting. The food here is very good, if not outstanding. The service is exemplary. Probably the best restaurant in the theater district.

We return to The Lambs Club again and again because it simply cannot be beat! It is truly the ONLY place to dine if you are in the theatre district and want to avoid the chain restaurants (Olive Garden), old standbys (Sardi's) or delis and fast food. The food is always wonderful and service is attentive. However, I would suggest that the servers' jackets are sorely in need of a good laundering. They were rather soiled and off-putting for an otherwise elegant venue.

Sorry Jeffery Alex wins! We have been to Butter twice recently and it was Amazing! I was really looking forward to this dinner @ The Lambs Club and while my boyfriends Lamb dinner was pretty good the lamb pasta was a disappointment, the cocktail very late & only so-so and the salad just ok. So honestly for what we ordered it was very pricey and a big disappointment.

Went here last year for lunch at this time of year to hear the xmas carolers. Decided to take a friend visiting from Florida for dinner this year for the same experience. The place lacked xmas decorations and atmospher. The carolers were outstanding when they came to your table to sing for you - which was only once during our dinner. When they sang in front of the restaurant, you could not hear them AT ALL as the noise level for so high and annoying. The food was ok, wine was very expensive but good and service was ok- not great. We went to get into the holiday spirit and do the tourist thing only to be Disappointied- but the company was fun so we made the best of it. I would recommend for lunch for the experience but definitely not for dinner

Leave yourself lots of time if have some place to go. Once we got seated (we had a 12:15 pm reservation for 5 and got seated at 12:45) the waitstaff was efficient. The kitchen was not. It took about 30 mins for our food, some omelets and sandwiches, to arrive. As it was a larger group (more than 4) I had to guarantee with a credit card. They were trying to get us into a larger table but that party was not budging. In the end, they took a table for 4 and added an extra seat. Not as spacious as would have preferred.

Pretty room. Good food. Enjoyable background music at brunch

I am glad that I read up that service could be slow. We had a 2PM concert to attend.

We would return but we know to plan ahead. Smaller parties more likely to be seated faster. I cant speak how the kitchen would respond.
