A word from The Rib Room at the Omni Royal Orleans
For 50 years The Rib Room has enjoyed its reputation for outstanding food and service. Patrons have found the massive windows facing Royal Street the perfect backdrop for Crescent City dining. The woody, Old English atmosphere and high ceiling invite guests to sit back and stay awhile. The softly lit and equally comfortable Rib Room bar offers the ideal setting for sophisticated beverages and extensive wine cellar selections. In the restaurant's wine cellar, diners requiring privacy may choose from the "Pipkin", "Wine Cellar", or "Roundtable" rooms, perfect for small gatherings; each discreetly removed from the main dining floor. On the upper level of the Rib Room we feature a private room for groups up to 40 guests. Winner of the prestigious Zagat Award, The Rib Room offers classics such as slow roasted prime rib of beef, aged steaks, fresh Louisiana seafood, and champagne brunch on Sunday.

    The restaurant made us feel special knowing we were celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary and ended with a special triple chocolate cake on the house. The prime ribs were perfectly done. We enjoyed the view of the French Quarter out our window. The service couldn't be better.

    This place had a wonderful Jazz Brunch and had a three piece Jazz group who came around to each table taking requests. The food was pretty tasty, but a little expensive. I had a the moss salad, which is sort of like a Chicken Cesar. It was really good, and a nice break from all the fried foods NOLA has to offer. The bread is AMAAAAZING. The service is excellent. They also have a nice little bar in the restaurant.

    I love the Rib Room! Amazing that a "hotel" restaurant could be so consistently good! Sitting by the window, you can watch the spontaneous French Quarter second line folks having a ball...The "short" rib is far from short...Fabulous, fork tender...Service is unobtrusive and impeccable...Rib Room is especially beautiful at Christmas-time! Go see it!

    There was 6 of us. Creativity and quality was there however 2 prime Ribs and 2 Steaks over cooked and 2 steaks under cooked. Server must have been new. We had to pour our own wine for most of service, thats difficult with a decanter and we had 3 bottles.

    I have to explain how I rate a restaurant. First I look at what I am expecting based on past reviews, location, look and feel of the place and of course the price. So for example if I was going to Applebee's and I paid that price and got the food that we received at the Rib Room, well I think the best I would give them is a 4 star. Yep - I felt that the food could have been much better, it wasn't just me it was all of my colleagues. Our server was great, and we were seated promptly. That is about the best I can rank this.

    Ever since the waiter ran down the street to buy peanut butter for my 4 year old sister's sandwich, the Rib Room has been a family favourite. It continues to serve high quality American food with a dash of New Orleans panache in a restful setting, suitable for graduation lunches, romantic dinners or a break on a work day. We made a brunch reservation so we could make sure to get some eggs sardou, but the luncheon menu prime rib always pleases. Ask for a window seat on Royal Street.

Located in the Hotel Monteleone, this restaurant is a great find and just off the French Quarter. The food is great and the service is exceptional. Highly recommend!

    The Rib Room provides a wonderful dining experience. It has great ambiance, friendly and attentive service, and a menu that can satisfy any taste. My prime rib was great as was my wife's shrimp. This is the second time in two years that I have visited this restaurant, and it will continue to be on my list of preferred places to dine should I return to New Orleans. This is a great restaurant.

    We come to NOLA often and despite all of the fine restaurants, we always make sure we come to the Rib Room. The dining room is quiet, service top notch with a very professional and friendly staff. As the name implies, it is a beef restaurant and I usually go for the prime rib which is tender, juicy and flavorful. Very good wine list

    We love coming here. This restaurant has been a wonderful place for great cuts of prime rib for years and it did not fail us. We celebrated our sons birthday a couple of nights ago. Excellent service, decent though not spectacular bar, perfect food. Most of us had the prime rib with lashings of creme fraiche,horseradish and the sauce au jus. Good appetizers, salads and sides. One typically orders the baked potato with the meat but I've found that their roasted cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and asparagus are very good too

  • Best Steak in New Orleans
    NOLAFOODIE
    Dined on 6/19/2014
    For someone who is a real steak lover living in New Orleans I've struggled to find a truly great Steak in the city. Thats was, until I ate the Rib Room. The ribeye I ordered was cooked to perfection and was truly a special steak, unlike anything else I've tried in New Orleans. Every side dish and appetizer we ordered was fun, exciting, unique and absolutely delicious. This is not your typical boring steak house menu with the standard sides and apps, every dish had real character and tasted absolutely amazing. The appetizers used amazingly fresh local ingredients to make dishes that were new and exciting. There isn't one single thing on the whole menu I wouldn't recommend ordering. Best steak in New Orleans, period!

    I worked at this hotel 38 years ago. Planned a Nostalgic trip back to New Orleans, celebrating our 32 wedding anniversary with a dinner at the Rib Room. In short, this was a devastating experience to say the least. My lovely wife could not eat the duck, the chicken liver appetizer was a joke. Service was non existing . On a positive note, the wine was perfect and the Asst. manager took of my wife's meal from the check. Last night's dinner at R'evolution at the Sonesta hotel made up for the shortcoming of the Royal Orleans Omni Hotel.
