Disappointment at Oyster Bar at Grand Central

I recently had lunch at the Oyster Bar at Grand Central. I've never been there before, but I remember hearing good things about it. The service was efficient and friendly, but the food wasn't the best. It wasn't bad, just average.

I has a bowl of New England Clam Chowder, which didn't have too many potatoes (a plus), but add a can of clams to Progresso, and you've got the same meal. My friend and I shared Oysters Rockerfellar, which were filled with way too much spinach and sauce with a miniscule oyster buried underneath.

Has anyone else been lately? Maybe the kitchen staff was just having an off day.
