“The atmosphere of the place was great, the server was very attending and humorous.”
“Brunch: coffee cold & had to be sent back (!”
“delicious outpost in north greenpoint.”
“The food has always been rich and tasty, especially in the glut of thai/mexican/chinese dinner options on the northern end of greenpoint.”
“Overall, good food and service at a more than fair price”
“The backyard outdoor garden seating is nice and the fact that it is BYOB really makes it affordable to enjoy a nice bottle of wine with dinner.”
Great Food. I live in Greenpoint and this place is a great addition to the neighborhood. Everything we've had here has been terrific - the feta and sundried tomato app awesome, and the spinach salad w/ blue cheese and bacon is the best. We actually make a habit of stopping by and picking it up during the week. Bring your own wine and enjoy a terrific meal in a low key unpretentious atmosphere. Beware - avoid the bodga next door - no good wine to be had. Bring your own!
a delicious outpost in north greenpoint.... I've gone to Lamb and Jaffy several times now, and every time the food has been excellent. The lamb and the duck (when they have it) are tender and packed with flavor, the appetizers are especially good, and the atmosphere is quiet and cozy. Service was nice too, attentive but relaxed. I haven't had a chance to try the desserts yet, because I'm always too full. My one qualm is that they dont have a liquor license, and the liquor store next door has an awful selection, so get your bottle before you go.
I totally disagree with your review..
look, I don't really want a ton of bridge and tunnel manhattan kids coming over to my neighborhood and making it hard for me to get a table at the Lamb & Jaffy, but I really must say that the other review is nonsense.
the food is amazing. nothing overly chic or pretentious. start with the devils on horseback, dates wrapped in bacon that come in the cast iron pan they were fried in. the tilapia in brown butter is a personal favorite. no fancy presentation, yeah. but the lamb & jaffy is certainly a gem. perhaps the best thing in the neighborbood (after photoplay, of course).
Sorry, but its just NOT good... gave it 3 tries!. I was so excited when this restaurant opened; this specific area needs a good restaurant on Manhattan Ave. But, after THREE tries-once for brunch & TWICE for dinner, I have given up hope. Brunch: coffee cold & had to be sent back (!!??!), eggs benedict with lump crabmeat/hollandaise sauce on artichoke hearts were also cold, eggs hardly cooked and oozing with clear egg goo-articokes as hard as a rock. Dinner was recently a lamb special - large "gristly hunks of lamb" slopped on plate, swimming in a pool of watery sauce with chopped asparagus thrown all over plate. It was just bad... Another time: Pork medallions w potatoes & apples - only just edible but boring/ uninteresting. My husband didnt like the food each time either. I'm not high maintenance, just wish for good food ...and they could do SO well there-but they just dont have it down right.
