    Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing dinner experience. Staff was excellent and a shout out to Chris the mezzanine manager for taking the time to speak with us. We enjoyed the steak tartar, arugula salad, branzino and cod. All delicious and well prepared.

    At the time that I visited they were preparing for Valentines evening. I had reserved for afternoon tea, which they were not serving. So in that sense it was a little disappointing.

    Very disappointed in the food and service. Drink orders were taken quickly but had to ask twice for a food order to be taken. Ordered my lamb pink and it was way overcooked. Sent it back and second attempt was slightly better. Server made no apologies.

    Although I have visited the Lambs Club in the past I have never been on the second floor. I suppose that was the dining area for restaurant week. In any event, the service was personable and attentive. The food ,especially the crab salad appetizer, was divine. Beautifully plated and scrumptious salmon. The specially delivered martinis from bar was a nice touch!

    Went here for restaurant week. The food was great but the amount of waiting that went on was not. We waited for our table for 20 minutes despite numerous tables being open. Once we finally ordered, we waited an extremely long time for our appetizer. The wait between appetizer and main was excruciating. We got hungry again because it took so long and the waitress never checked in on us. When dessert finally came, we only got one of our orders, had to flag down the waitress in order to get silverware and the other dessert. While the food was good, the lack of service means we won't be back. There are too many great restaurants in this city to have poor service.

    I made reservations to the Lambs Club for our holiday luncheon with colleagues. I had been here previously and enjoyed the cocktail specials. I picked this venue because of its close proximity to our office and because it’s great for a large group. I ordered the duck leg confit. Others ordered the salmon, burger, lamb gyro and omelet. We all enjoyed our lunch. My colleagues were very happy with their cocktails. The Lambs Club exceeded our expectations. The food was delish and cocktails divine. I would definitely return and highly recommend for large gatherings.

    While the food was delicious. The service was subpar. We made reservations and when arrived the hostess acted like we were disturbing her by checking in. Shen then sent us upstairs. They wanted to seat us at a table that was overrun by people crowded at the bar. When asked for a different table and hostesses stayed there were none. We went to walk out and normally I am not the type to complain at restaurants however. This is supposed to be upscale. The manager magically found a table and we took it but the initial impression already left at bad taste.

    I booked a table at the Lambs Club Bar and Lambs Club called me twice to confirm my reservation. Quite the surprise that when we arrived we were told there was a private party in the Bar and we would go to the restaurant. The service staff could not explain why during the 2 confirmation calls (include one earlier the same day) I was not told that the Bar was going to be closed for a private party. The service staff assured me we could get the Bar menu in the Restaurant. Not true. Instead of us having a fun time like we would have in the Bar we had to order a full meal off of the Restaurant dinner menu. Frankly if I wanted to have a formal dinner in the restaurant that is what I would have booked. Overall a very disappointing experience.

    First visit. Friends referred us to this theater district gem. We booked late so we were sent to the mezzanine. It was very pleasant though. And quiet. My one criticism is the $30 for soup. It was good. But not that good. The Amish chicken was delicious. And be aware that the desserts are family style, also $30! We had a delightful and very professional server. Would return.

    It is an intimate setting and lively. If you are going pre theater as we were check in early as the atmosphere is enjoyable and people tend to linger at the table and keeping to the reservation time becomes a bit of a problem

    We were at the bar. The room was very nice — retro cool. We went there after seeing the cocktail menu online and it was different when we got there, which was a disappointment. The one I ordered was nothing special (granted I asked for the cucumber one that’s on the non alcohol menu to be made with alcohol. They said it was not a problem but they left out a key ingredient, the egg white). The food did look amazing but the service was not so spirited and between that and the cocktail being meh, we decided not to order any and left after one round. Despite that, we may try to go again, because the food did look that good!)

    Our experience was lovely. We wanted to have a pre show visit with some dear friends and this choice completely fit the bill. Our food was delicious. I ordered the Duck Breast and it was plentiful and completely to my liking. I would recommend this venue for people that like a quality meal with great service.

    Both the service and the food were completely outstanding for our dinner at the Lambs Club Bar. We both had the chicken entrée and it was perfect, both moist and delicious, with a generous sized portion. We had the chocolate and peanut butter cake for dessert and it was yummy. The feeling you get from being there is very old-school New York. You could almost imagine Frank Sinatra walking in the door. Our server was Naome and she was completely lovely and professional. I think the website should post pictures of the seating in the bar. I tried to find some online before we went to see what the seating would be like in comparison to the main dining room but had trouble finding anything that showed what that looked like. I agree with another reviewer who said the ambience would be perfect if they’d dim the lights a bit. The charm of having a candle on your table is lost if the overhead lights are bright. This is a wonderful if somewhat pricey option for a pre-theater dinner in the theater district. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

    I had lunch here in the summer and loved it and thus my decision to return for dinner. From beginning to end it was a disappointment. The woman who took our drink order must have been new or I would hope so. Dewars on the rocks is not a difficult order but the first drink I got was Titos and the second a substitute scotch, only ascertained after I asked. I would have understood if they did not have what I asked for and if they told me this it would have allowed me to select something else. The food was sub par but the atmosphere was the saving grace. I will think twice about going back.

    Nice but very pricey for a bar. A couple of drinks will double your tab. Two of us had drinks, apps, entrees and a glass of wine each and the tab came to over $300.

    I was appalled when the bar bill came and the cost was $24 for a basic martini. We are New Yorkers and eat out often. We always drink martinis with little to no vermouth and have never paid this much or been charged extra for the few additional ounces of vodka—Grey Goose vodka, which is not on the higher end of the scale. It’s insulting and offensive. We did not stay for dinner and will never go back. Instead we went to Osteria al Doge down the block and had an amazing experience.

    The decor was kind of retro but very clean and nicely done. We had made the reservation about a week ahead of time. We were told our table would be in the mezzanine (not the dining room - we were dressed for the theatre so we looked pretty decent I think) with floor to ceiling windows. We were then seated at a very small circular table with one person seated on a bench and the other in a chair set at an angle so that more patrons could be squeezed in to a smaller place. There were other normal tables in the mezzanine as well as the dining room which wasn't busy yet at our 6:15 reservation time. My wife is a connoisseur of lamb. Her meal was overly fatty and over cooked based on her slightly over medium request. My meal of a rib eye was also fatty, although cooked perfectly. Normally the only beef I eat is a filet and I should have stuck to that and had the salmon. The service was attentive. I guess the menu was not as much to our liking and The Lambs Club may be a great spot for you.

    We dined at The Lamb’s Club during Restaurant Week and enjoyed the experience. Our meals were all delicious, and the service was perfect. There was live music in the mezzanine (bar area- where they offer the Restaurant Week menu) which was unobtrusive and lovely. The only complaint I have is the prices of the cocktails are very high ($21 for a sidecar) and coffee is $7 (though they do bring you a small pot). If you are dining outside of Restaurant Week, I recommend requesting the main dining room which is beautiful and elegant - pure deco magic - though the mezzanine is perfectly acceptable when you’re getting Restaurant Week prices.

    We took advantage of the restaurant week menu which has to be the biggest bargain around for great food - chicken is not just chicken here it’s fantastic! Even the pre theaters menu while a little pricier is worth it for great food. Make sure to indulge in a cocktail too
