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. 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 Sunday Jazz Brunch Grand Buffet which includes Bottomless Mimosas.

We love the Rib Room. Food and service are consistently great. We had an exceptional experience this time because of our server Jason. He was very helpful and attentive. He even gave us the low down on the Brussel sprout side that was over the top. If your looking for a very comfortable fine dining experience then you can’t go wrong with the Rib Room.

Service was very slow and it wasn’t busy when we ordered. Took a very long time to receive order.
Food was not as good as I remember. It’s been years since I’ve dined there.

The food is quite fine, but it is the service that sets this place apart. From the front desk to the busboy, everyone is attentive, pleasant, and helpful. The room itself is stunning which adds to the experience of dining well in the Quarter.

Great time in this elegant steakhouse, very comfortable, kind and efficient service. Meat was not the best I had but still very good. The setting of the restaurant is nice, ask for the few tables along the large windows!

Excellent meal and service from the staff. It was a wonderful experience. Only problem was when ordering hot tea, this came to the table cold. It occurred twice and were quickly resolved each time. Definitely recommend Rib Room.

I wanted to love it.. From the garage where you valet to the restaurant itself through the interior, there is no signage, so it’s not an easy find. We had the seared scallop appetizer. It was delicious, but the scallops were totally soft all around; no sear. The gumbo was very dark and had great spice; would definitely order this again. The apps had our expectations high for our steaks. My husbands king prime rib was cooked properly but lacked seasoning. The horseradish and sour cream accompaniment was good. My filet was sad. I was sad. The seasoning was definitely lacking, but the main issue was the temp. I ordered medium rare, and it was close to medium well. My husband tried mine and was surprised I didn’t send it back. They gave us a complimentary mini macaron plate for my husband’s birthday which was really nice!

We were their for the first day of the Grand Buffet. The food was good fair amount of choices and preparation was great. However I would change the pancake station to crepes. The desert table was more breakfast pastries with two small very good desserts but no spoons for the small cups. Service was a bit slow at first then it picked up it was like everybody was confused we had to wait for serving utensils for some items. The down falll was the price to me 65 per person and additional 15 for mimoss. The buffet was large but I have been to larger ones that included your bottomless mimosas for less. So 80 per person with drinks is a bit too steep in my opinion.

Wow, food and service was just superb!! I highly recommend the following menu items: Rib Room salad with blue cheese salad, French onion soup, center cut prime rib, filet mignon, sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts and for dessert Kleinpeter's chocolate ice cream topped with chocolate sauce. Absolutely awesome food tonight. Consistently good. Service was just as awesome!! :)

We booked for prime rib but then learned out of prime rib so we had the 16 oz rib eye special, which was over seasoned.

This was the first time we’ve been to the Rib Room and left disappointed. My husband’s lamb chops arrived at the table cold. The waiter tried to fix it and warm them w kitchen but was luke warm to prevent over cooking.

We will be back but this time was a disappointment as our prior experiences have been excellent.

Impeccable service, welcoming and attentive. Beautiful environment, cozy and roomy leather chairs. The best prime rib I've ever tasted. The desserts weren't the greatest, but still enjoyable. A memorable evening, will most definitely return again.

We chose this restaurant as part of the New Orleans Restaurant Week, the menu choice was small but we felt it looked appealing. The restaurant was quite and our Server was welcoming and informative, we chose our food. The starters were ok but the mains 3 of us chose were to 10oz prime rib, if this was prime rib I would be amazed, there was so much fat content you were lucky if you ended up with half of the 10oz as actual meat. Desert was chocolate cake which was very nice and our Server accommodated the requests for English Breakfast tea very easily but the Prime Rib really let the meal down I`m afraid.

After days of shrimp, oysters and fish in New Orleans, it was nice to sit down in a beautiful restaurant and order the delicious prime rib! This beautiful cut of meat came with several additions but we opted for the surprisingly large baked potato that allowed you to also pile on sour cream, bacon bits and scallions. The servers were great with a sense of humor. We chose an early reservation and a seat near the windows to watch the colorful characters of the French Quarter. The 3 levels of prime rib (not including the additional chef's special) were 8 oz, about 12 oz and the King cut came with bone-in. Our meat came cooked the way we requested. This restaurant was a bit pricey compared to other places serving prime rib but we knew that going in and decided to have a great meal within walking distance of our hotel. We were not disappointed.

Food (veal) over cooked. More burned than crispy.
