Lamb's Club - What was I thinking and why didn't I ask first!?

Spiritchaser | May 15, 201206:21 AM

First, let me salvage some of my dignity by giving some back story. As part of the Manhattan Cocktail Classic we went to an event (and I use that term very loosely) at the bar upstairs at the Lamb's Club. Knowing we would be there and that we would need food afterwards I made a reservation for the restaurant. I should have used the cocktail event as my "canary in the coal mine" and cancelled the reservation but unfortunately I did not. SIDENOTE: I just realized I've already used more time then I think this restaurant warrants so I'm going to cut to the chase.

The space makes you feel as if you are eating in a themed Disneyland restaurant.

The food is uninspired and ridiculously overpriced but the ingredients seemed good quality and the taste was okay but again, zero points for value.

Our (and I hate to use this term because it was undeseved) Captain lacked even a glimmer of interest and seemed to always be looking somewhere else when "interacting" with us.

Every diner in the place looked bored out of their minds. It's also looked like a very touristy bunch. A couple of small children being completely ignored by their mother must have run to the restroom and back at least a dozen times without a hint of discipline.

We could not get out of the place fast enough and after seeing the final bill we realized how many other places we could have gone and gladly spent the money.

I think I better stop now, I'm just getting angry thinking about it.
