    Small room. Nice, but decor looked more like a riverboat than fancy dining experience. Wait staff pleasant, but not exceptional. Food good, but limited menu and very pricey. Loved the baked Alaska. What ruined the evening was a very loud, boisterous group at a table who never shut up. They were yelling so loud you would have thought they were at a stadium and not a nice restaurant.Since such a small venue, couldn't hear your own party talk and were tortured by their entire discussions. Brought to the attention of our server, but nothing was done. Not against people having fun, but perhaps they should remind guests that in view of the intimate location, please be respectful of other diners.

    It was our first time there and it was amazing. The cocktails were on point. The shrimp cocktail was very good. We had the king cut prime rib and the lobster thermidor. Both were amazing. Our waiter was awesome. I can’t wait to go back

    Received one drink and one shareable appetizer in the slightly over an hour time we were there. When we finished our appetizer and that was the last time we saw our waiter for roughly 40 minutes. No checking in, no drink refills, no status updates on the food, nothing. We are no strangers to elevated dining experiences and this was just not even close to the experience we were expecting. *Update: The restaurants manager has reached out to us directly about this and we really appreciated that. We will definitely be back to Rib Room to give it another try!

    Small intimate space / room, if you want prime rib, this is the place - the side choices are good and they did offer two off the menu specials - Baked Alaska Flambé served table-side for dessert was a great presentation !

    Mouth watering goodness! The Brussels sprouts were amazing, the mashed potatoes are the absolute best and the prime rib was excellent!!! Cannot go wrong here. Only issue is, I can only get a table for either 2 or 4 people. Our family consists of 5 people, so we can’t go here if we all want to go.

    This was a lovely evening, overall. 3 out of 4 cuts of prime rib were good and our server did a good job. Dessert was impressive. On the downside...we were strangely served mashed potatoes long before any other food came out. The sides were pretty good but the one cut of prime rib that came to the table was mostly fat and gristle, unfortunately. The popovers were dry. Our server disappeared for a bit after that so we didn't feel like holding everyone's food up so we just accepted it. But most notably, our arrival was disappointing. The hostess was rude when we tried to check in ten minutes early. We had to wait outside the doors (which I get since they were just opening - but it seems like there could be a better option for waiting than standing in the lobby of the theater.) At the appointed time our table was not ready. We were told to get a drink at the bar, which we did, but the bartender took so long, another host was trying to usher us back to the Rib Room while the bartender SLOWLY processed our bill. It was rude. It's hard to get good staff these days, I know. But the first tables of the night - no one should be in such as bad mood. Also, the wine list of by the glass wines was both very short and very expensive. When you start with cocktails (also expensive, but pretty good) you don't necessarily want an entire bottle. There is a lot of room for improvement here and I'm not sure I would suggest someone spend the money.

    Everything was great. Food, service and atmosphere were all great. Only odd thing was getting stopped by a waiter asking me where I was going as I walked back to my seat in The Rib Room. Which was odd because he wasn't one of the staff working that room and didn't say anything to the 2 people that walked in ahead of me.

    Food and service was excellent, as well as the atmosphere. The only negative, and it’s not a huge deal, but they forgot our add ons to the entrees when they brought our food out, but they did bring them quickly when we asked. Overall, fantastic!

    Great date night for a birthday. It would have been nice to have been given a heads up about all the road closures for Light Up Night, but we finally found parking, 30 minutes late, and enjoyed our dinner. The dining room is very cute and cozy, tucked away in Meat & Potatoes. Service was friendly and efficient, food was solid. Baked Alaska is a fun and festive dessert for sure!

    My husband and I went here to celebrate our anniversary. Our servers were Andrew and Robert, both of them were excellent and so kind and really went the extra mile to makes us feel special. The food was amazing, I do not know of many places in the city you can get prime rib, but this was worth it.

    After being seated for 20 minutes our server finally approached us. She did not go over the menu or anything and only asked if we were ready to order. We put in a drink order and then waited an additional 10 minutes to get our drinks. We ordered an appetizer and one person at the table ordered a salad in addition to our entrees. The salad and appetizer were served at the same time. We orders the vodka pasta as an appetizer which was delicious, but they did not even bring a serving spook. The prime rib was average, the mashed potatoes were cold and the mushrooms were so salty we did not eat them. We will not return

    Rib Room is a neat concept, but it's a bit lacking in the execution. The room is small and a little shabby in places. While it makes for a cozy, intimate environment, it is a tad too quiet which allows for neighboring tables to hear everything you're saying (and vice versa). The space could more authentic in pursuing the 'Supper Club' vibe they profess to offer. The food is okay. If you're in search of variety, you won't find it here. It's slabs of beef for an entree, or nothing. The appetizers were great - the fois gras was outstanding. The entree, though, was uninspired and under-seasoned. The Yorkshire pudding was as bland as can be, even after drowning it in the tasteless brown liquid that they referred to as jus (gravy). The service was very good - no complaints at all on that front. The brigade assigned to the Rib Room was very attentive and pro-active. Bottom line - if you're looking for a good steak/beef dinner, there are far better options in Pittsburgh, especially at this price point.

    Service was spectacular! The room was cozy and intimate, perfect for our anniversary celebration. My husband and I ordered a bottle of champagne to share, which we both very much enjoyed. We ordered the rigatoni alla vodka for a starter, which the chef split between us both. It was DELICIOUS! My husband enjoyed the kings cut prime rib, and I enjoyed the english cut. We did not order any enhancements and honestly I don’t think you need too. The prime rib was cooked to perfection, and tasted wonderful with the addition of the au jus. For sides, we ordered the fried brussels and lobster mac and cheese. The fried brussels came with a lemon aoli which we couldn’t get enough of! The lobster Mac and cheese was a little cold, but had a fair amount of lobster which we appreciated. The baked Alaska for dessert was the perfect ending to the meal! I would highly recommend Rib Room to celebrate a special occasion!

    The service was amazing. They were so attentive. We went as a birthday celebration. We ordered so much food, and it was all delicious. We split the rigatoni and cesear salad. I got the English cut order of prime rib, which was more than enough. My boyfriend ordered the Queen's cut, and he also had leftovers. Their Brussel Sprouts were amazing. My boyfriend ordered the mushrooms, truffle fries, and creamed spinach. I'd definitely recommend going, although it is on the pricey side!
