Steakhouse

For 60 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. 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 of 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, and fresh Louisiana seafood. Chef Tom Wolfe / General Manager Jason Turner

    After eating in a few restaurants in Nola (like Arnaud’s), I was disappointed with the Rib Room. The bread and the Korean rib appetizer were the highlights. I thought that the herb 1/2 chicken was nothing special nor was the side dish. Th dining room was lovely however the food was nothing special.

    We had reservations for 6 and were told we had to wait because there were two tables ahead of us. That was fine. We were seated and waited quite awhile before the waiter came. He was nice but… We placed our order and waited about an hour for the appetizer and another hour it more for the entree. We had to ask how much longer we’d have to wait for our food. It fi ally came. My husband’s steak and daughter’s steaks were cold. I ordered fish and the two small pieces were the size of chicken nuggets. Needless to say the fish was returned and we ended up boxing the food to go. Oh I failed to mention they also failed to include the sides with e entrees. This is one I’d definitely never ever ever venture to again.

    We frequent here for prime rib. The quality has gone down the last two times we came in. I had to send my overcooked prime rib back the last two times we dined. Yesterday, when my dish came out medium well instead of medium rare, I immediately sent it back. They brought out another a few minutes later and it was medium, and was an awful cut of meat. Disappointed in my go to place for prime rib. The bread & water guy is SUPER nice and always smiling, so that earns some points for sure, but the kitchen must do better.

    For a restaurant that is about meat. Both of our meals were prepared wrong. The filet was rare and the lamb was well done. Not what we wanted at all. We also found a hair in our French fries. For an empty restaurant we would have hated to see it on a busy night. After spending over 200$ on dinner, it should have been way better.

    We were led to the tiniest table in the room. Our elbows hitting a wall. One of us is disabled and can benefit from a little more table space, and since the room was not even half full and there were 3 slightly larger empty tables a few feet from us, we asked if we could have one of those. No we couldn’t because they must assign tables in an assigned rotation. After much discussion but not before staff embarrassed us, they acquiesced but the evening was already spoiled. Still not sure why their rules take precedence over a diner’s comfort. The restaurant never got any fuller. Our server was nice but the hostess and maitre’d could benefit from diversity training. Food was fine. Lovely setting.

    My husband and I enjoyed a quiet and intimate dinner at the Rib Room. We loved Kendrick, our waiter! He was friendly, personable and attentive. The special of the day, black drum in a crawfish sauce was an unexpected surprise and absolutely delicious!! We will definitely dine there again when we return to NOLA.

    So dated! Waiters had too many tables. Manger wandered around useless. Food was over cooked almost inedible. Nobody checked or cared. Prime rib tacos were gross. Ordered rare prime rib with sweet potatoes and creamed spinach. Got mid well with mashed potatoes and kale. Black drum tasted like fish jerky. Best part of meal was kids Kraft Mac and cheese. Couldn’t get waiter for drinks, dessert or the check. Final insult was check included food we did not order or receive. We wanted prime rib, this was embarrassing. Looked like everyone in the restaurant were hotel guests. Obviously, locals know better.

    Hendrix was a good server. He appeared to be overwhelmed as the establishment was obviously understaffed. Hendrix appeared as though he knows what great service is supposed to look like and appeared uncomfortable that things took so long. Unfortunately our appetizers didn’t make it to the table for nearly an hour. Drinks from the bar were equally slow. The main courses came to the table and were delicious but lucky warm. We hate to give such a poor rating, especially in understanding the impact Covid-19 has had on the hospitality work force. We will give the restaurant another opportunity in the future, in hopes a great review can be left.

    We made reservations to celebrate my husband's birthday with family at the Rib Room Sunday Jazz Brunch. It was just perfect! The food and drinks were delicious. We enjoyed the jazz band and wait service which was very accommodating. The parking at the hotel was so convenient and it was even validated. A wonderful day with family. We are locals and we will be back.

    Beautiful room, great cocktails and great service. But the fish was incredibly hard to cut - seemed as if it had been frozen. The lobster pops appetizer were pretty tasty but barely warm. Very small portion, too. Bread pudding was outstanding.

    my wife and I have eaten here many times. service was not as good as in the past. Bartender made a terrible Sazerac. She did not know how. my wife asked for a glass of wine and they poured the most expensive. my wife had the Queen sized Prime Rib (only place you can get it in NOLA). I had fish, small portion for the price ($28)but tasted good. Waiter acted like he was not there. I am sad to see the decline.

    We got the Crab Cake "benedict", had to send it back because it was cold. The remade order was ok, but the smallest crab cakes I've ever seen - inconsequential. And the breakfast potatoes were nothing but tots, nothing special - says "tots", not "breakfast potatoes" on the menu - we imaged homefries, with seasonings, onion, paprika, maybe rosemary - a letdown. The Shrimp Creole was ok, wishing the shrimp was whole-head. The dish was small for the price, but tasty. We wouldn't get either dish again. The Bloody Mary's were wonderful, saved the day. lol. Service was super slow, food served cold, drinks taking ridiculous times to arrive. The Jazz music was great.

    When I'm paying $55 for a steak and $180 for a bottle of wine, it comes with some expectations. First, the service should be more prompt and my server should know how to properly open a bottle of wine. Second, at those prices I expect a dress code to be enforced, and I shouldn't see people wearing shorts, t-shirts, and backwards baseball caps in the dining room.

    This was anniversary dinner. My prime rib looked like a rump roast. It was huge and presentation was awful. Unappetizing and looked like it was dumped on my plate. It tasted ok but definitely not good. My husband had the same view of his. It was not carved.

    We attended the Mother’s Day Jazz Brunch. I would like to request in the future doing a child’s menu. I bought my 9 year old daughter and the menu was limited to $75 plates which of course she barely ate $10 of it. Overall the music was superb. The service was ok. The waiter could’ve been more attentive. The food was flavorful and a little on the salty side. It could be because my palate is sensitive to high salt content and that seem to be common here where food is flavored with salt rather than herbs. The tenderloin was cooked decently well as far as tenderness is concerned. I ordered well and received several bloody areas but I made due and cooked it more to my liking once I arrived home. Would I return, No. however the point of my day was to honor my mother and she enjoyed portions of her meal and the music as well.

    Our reservation was for 7:30 pm. The service was very slow. We did not leave until after 10 pm, not by choice. Dessert took over an hour to receive and over 40 minutes for our food. This was a birthday celebration for my daughter and I. I told the waiter we were celebrating our birthdays, and this was completely ignored. Meanwhile, we hear birthday singing for a couple of other individuals in the restaurant. Not trying to be petty, just poor service from our waiter. I will go to Ruth's Chris next time for the same price.
