Food was great but the waiter
Food was great but the waiter was clearly overwhelmed so service suffered. It took forever to get him to take our order. He charged me for drinks that I didn't drink and said, "I saw that on your bill but forgot to take it off". When we arrived, someone else was complaining about the service too. The waiter also forgot our coffee. The food was great but not sure I'd try it again when there are so many excellent restaurants in the French quarter. For $160 for two dinners and one glass of wine, I would expect better service, sorry.

Nice restaurant and great food.
We were on an extended weekend trip and had a wonderful meal with great service. The wine the waiter recommended was an excellent accompaniment to my meal. I would definitely recommend.

Beautiful restaurant. The
Beautiful restaurant. The food was good, atmosphere historic and classy, and the service Miguel provided was stellar. My friend had really great scallops and I opted for a pork plate. Should have gone with prime rib - the pork belly was really yummy but the other 2 (roasted and shredded) were dry and bot too flavorful. The gumbo was GREAT.

My expecatations were low
My expecatations were low as it is in a hotel and normally means average food in my experience. However this Rib room in the lobby of the beautiful Omni Royal Orleans is terrific! We ordered gumbo, short ribs, steak, redfish, bananas foster and more it was all terrific. I write this review after visiting 4 other "top" ($$$$) dinner spots- this was absolutley the best of the bunch! And reasonable!

Best in NOLA
My friend recommended this place as must to visit during my trip to Louisiana, and it has been the best meal I've ever had in New Orleans. Food in the Rib Room was exceptional and service superb, attentive and very friendly. Prime rib and scallops were great quality and full of flavor. I will dine there again.
5/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
We would recommend The Rib
We would recommend The Rib Room to all looking for great food, great service, and truly class atmosphere. New Orleans food and ambience at its best.

This is a must!
You have to eat here at least once while visiting the City

Awesome Food and Service
This was a great find, especially for a hotel restaurant. Would definitely return.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was the best experience in Big Easy during my vacation. Food was superb and Miguel our server was very friendly and professional. If you look for great experience and nice wine selection Rib Room is your place.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Known for prime rib, but great scallops, too. Large wine selection with winderful options from moderate to extravagant.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
King cut prime rib a challenge
Great piece of prime rib, about 1 1/2 inches thick (after cooking) grits were super creamy . Good coffee but had no room for dessert. Id go back. Was our most expensive meal that week (even more than Emeril's Nola) was worth it. Seemed like a good bar scene but an older crowd (Ya want young? go to Bourbon street) Decor was classy and smart. we loved it.
5/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
It's been 30 years since we have been to New Orleans. The Rib Room has been a favorite for fine dining and Friday evening was better than I remembered. We both had prime rib medium rare and it came to the table perfectly cooked. Words cannot covey how good the prime rib was. Wonderful birthday thanks to the Rib Room!
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
After trial and error eating throughout the Surrounding Nola area for my friend's birthday (all previous the food was awful or the service was awful) I decided to surprise my friend with this restaurant. The food was incredible. The service was impecable, timely, efficient and friendly. They also made my friend feel special on her birthday by greeting us at the hostess stand with a happy birthday and a surprise dessert. We will definitely be going back there soon

Friend of mine recommended this place, so we made lunch reservation. Food was outstanding and service very professional and friendly. Scallops dish was fantastic and flavorful and moss salad, one of the traditional dishes, huge and delicious, too big for one person. I would go there again, but perhaps for dinner.
6/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Timely, flavorful, attentive.
Will definetly return a fantastic lunch and a perfect escape from the work day.
We can't wait to return for a wash bucket martini.

The Rib Room in the OMNI Royal Orelans has a grand setting. The food was good, the beef excellent. Portions on the large side. Good selection of cocktails, wines and beers all at a reasonable price. the service let the side down as it was on the slow side, it took and hour from enterting to getting our appetizers and then another hour to get mains.
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
The oysters were amazing! First time trying them and I would go back there for more. Service was great. Kenneth kept it light and fun. The redfish and scallops were soooooo good! Will go back there next time we are in town

So perfect we went 2 nights in row!
Being a foodie from NY I am always on the hunt for the best spot in a new town. While there may be great local joints nothing compares to the Rib Room. The food is perfectly worked without being overworked. The short rib is the best I have ever had. Don't load up on apps or you'll never finish it! The service is so warm and friendly. They made my family feel so incredibly special. You won't find thus one in the travel books ( which is how you know it's great) so take a walk along Royal and then pop into this best if the best in New Orleans!
7/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Local Fare!
We met family members from out of town at the Rib Room; they were very impressed with the local flavor; food & service was great!
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was great Friday night dinner. My wife and I ordered smoked salmon with caviar and turtle soup for appetizer , and both of them were outstanding. For main course we had tenderloin and prime rib. You can tell that Rib room offers hight quality of beef. Both cuts were tender, flavorful and juicy. Service was very good, attentive and professional. Restaurant has good wine list. I would be back again.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good atmosphere; good food
Overall a great experience. Great steaks but you must love real butter because steaks are in their own juices with a butter sauce. There are other sauces on menu. Cheese grits are great!
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Requested a table near Royal Street windows and not only did we get that but our table was secluded away from main dining room. We were entertaining a couple for work purposes and it was nice to be in a quiet zone...and great wine list and food!!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding food and service
This was an amazing dinner. Great steaks and service. If you are looking for a relaxed fine dinning experience in a warm and friendly environment please go here.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Rib Room is a great dining venue for a special occasion. The food is excellent. The Chefs use of herbs enhanced the sauces. The staff was receptive to waiting between courses so we could longer enjoy the romantic ambiance. I recommend this restaurant.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Romantic dinner for two, thank you
We had a delicious meal paired with impeccable service. I will absolutely be back. Ask to be seated at one of Norma's tables and feel like your home.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was wonderful and the food was great! We were all satisfied with our dishes. It was as if the chef knew each guest personally, that's how close to perfect our food was. Our waiter was awesome and offered us wonderful suggestions. It was the first time for us all at this restaurant and it really was a wonderful experience :-)
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always delicious and fun
We have a great time every we dine here. Delicious food, great drinks and service and all for a very reasonable price. The hotel, restaurant and bar are beautiful. Seats near windows are great for people watching, you never know what to expect go passing on by on Royal Street!

Great for lunch
I came for lunch to check if it's as great as dinner and I didn't make mistake. Great food, many menu items are very similar to dinner menu with some salad additions and sandwiches. Service was fast and friendly and food delicious. I found new lunch spot in French Quarter.

The food here is good--not
The food here is good--not great, but good. The thing that I LOVE about this place is the "scene", the atmosphere, the feeling! It's such a "NEW ORLEANS" feeling in here. I love the tables by the windows on Royal St.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food at the Rib Room was outstanding. The staff was warm and welcoming. My 6 year old son was well taken care of. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. Kenny, our waiter was very attentive to our every need.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
2nd time eating here. Service from Kenny and food are constantly excellent! Kenny went out of his way for us.

Never disappointed with meal in the Rib Room. dinner was superb. It's good to see new items on the menu.

Rib Room Jazz Brunch is Great
This was our third trip to the Rib Room for the Sunday Jazz Brunch. The food is always excellent and our favorite waiter, Miguel, took great care of us. We also had the best seat in the house, number 8, in the corner against the big street windows. The music on the street and just people watching was a bonus. Pure Nawlin's at its best.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
A New Orleans Classic
The Rib Room's reputation for great food and impeccable service is well deserved and as good as I can remember in my 40+ years of dining there. Dining there is always a memorable experience for locals as well as visitors.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Extraordinary, as always
We've been coming here since the '60's and would never consider a trip to New Orleans without dinner at the Rib Room. Food is always superb in quality, temperature and quantity. Moderately expensive, yes, but well worth it.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth the experience
This restaurant came highly recommended. The ambiance was great. Wood panel walls, etc. very "Old World" and a great view of the street (halloween). The service was excellent. I had short ribs, a bit too greasy. Several in our party had the salmon and were delighted with it.

Saturday in the French Quarter
Brunch/lunch crowd is small and quiet, but it's a great place to start Saturday in the French Quarter. We had a window table, and enjoyed people watching while Andrew, our waiter, gave us extra attention and good menu recommendations. Great meal and drinks!
We miss the large rotisserie from prior visits, but flame-kissed foods were caramelized and flavorful.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great everything, don't miss it!
Food was great, decor and ambiance wonderful, band super. Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a complete experience. Menu is broad but select and food covers all areas of local specialties. Ribs are to die for!!

Sunday Brunch Disappointing
Went here because of excellent reviews of Sunday Brunch. However, went on a Sunday at 9:30AM and brunch selection very generic and not extensive. No Jazz music as other reviews noted. Four of us ordered off regular breakfast menu and food was excellent, but went there expecting a brunch experience so disappointed.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, great service. Had Sunday brunch and enjoyed everything. The band went from table to table and were very good and personable...Would go again any time...
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had breakfast here our last morning before we checked out of the Omni & wish we had more meals at their restaurant. We ordered
the Leidenheimer's French Toast, the Debris Omelet & milk punches.......everything was delicious! And if you didn't have any
Leidenheimer's French bread while in New Orleans, you didn't really experience New Orleans; it's the best ever.

Relaxed fine dining
I took out of town guests to the Rib Room recently + enjoyed a wonderful dinner.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
great birthday celebration
We had a party of four to celebrate a birthday. The staff was friendly and attentive. We had management stop to check on us and more importantly fill our wine glasses. The food was very good. The experience was outstanding. Our service was a stellar balance of attending to our needs without being overbearing.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Recommended by a friend. It's definitely worth the money!
