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. General Manager Jason Turner

    We have frequented the Rib Room several times. Something has happened. I'm a believer in you get what you pay for. Unfortunately this time did not hold true. Service was average, we shouldn't have to signal for more water, ask for our check, ask for an additional napkin twice, or wait 10 minutes+ to get our credit card back after paying. The food was "ok", not the servers fault by any means, however, medium rare should not come out well done. If I sent it back everyone else would have finished their meal before I received a replacement.

    The RR has gone down, like a lot of places in New Orleans. Covid really did a number on restaurants there. I've been going there for 50 years, and I've never been disappointed until last night. My guests said they liked the meal, but I was embarrassed.

    This is a beautiful restaurant and the musicians were great - lovely jazz and not too loud. BUT we ordered the prime rib - their absolute specialty - and the meal was disappointing. It was cooked just the way we like it but the 16 oz. rib contained at least 8 oz. of fat and gristle that was not edible. We mentioned it to the server and he just pretty much shrugged and said maybe the chef changed suppliers. Anyway, it was too bad. I’ve been coming here for many years for the prime rib and never encountered such a quality issue.

    What a lovely dinner we had at the Rib Room. We were given a table by a window which we loved. The piano player was singing old time songs. Our prime rib may have been the best meal we had during our three night stay. Excellent.

    The service by Reba and Frank was awesome. The food was delicious. The wait staff was especially kind and friendly with my 8 year old grandson who enjoyed the attention. When I needed to adjust my reservation, I had no problem. The reservation desk was extremely courteous. What a great Thanksgiving meal.

    Celebrating a very special day the night before we were to leave New Orleans! The restaurant is lovely and ambience perfect. Lobster poppers very tasty and excellent house salad. But… the White Fish Almandine was totally sub standard for this level of dining… first plate served so salty could not eat .. another plate brought and that fish cooked to chewy…tasteless Waited for someone to ask how the food is …. Did not happen. Thankfully my husband’s prime rib was excellent so not a total loss. Would we return or recommend ..no as attention to how food is prepared at this level of cost should be superb. If there is an element you cannot serve at an excellent level ..take it off the menu.

    Wonderful dinner. Quiet and elegant dining room. Sat by a window and watched the world go by. I had drum fish that was delicious. My husband had prime rib which was prepared just the way he likes it. He said it was tender and flavorful. Jeffrey our waiter was attentive but didn’t rush us. Best meal of the visit.

    Service was slow, we waited a long time before being spoken to or greeted. Steak didn’t have much flavor-it was cooked a perfect medium rare. French onion soup was lukewarm. Drink order and food order was taken at the same time. It felt very rushed, and for that price it was disappointing. We were celebrating both of our birthdays and the ball was dropped. All together for the price we paid, a very lackluster experience. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone staying in town.

    Ordered the banana foster pancakes & menu description was that it was served with strawberries & banana. It was served without the strawberries & bananas & when we complained , the waitress told us that it never was served with the fruit. We had to wait 10 minutes for the fruit & also waited that long for butter & jam for toast. Our food was cold by then. Unfortunately it was my husbands birthday & we had to deal with bad food & service. We stayed at hotel for 3 nights & never went back to the Rib Room.

    What a wonderful Halloween weekend in the Big easy! This is always been one of my favorite restaurants to visit while in town. The waiters and waitresses were beyond attentive. The major d on point and the food absolutely delicious. One would think it would be noisier as there's a bar directly behind the restaurant but it is not. Try the steak or the lamb and you will not be disappointed.

    I went for the prime rib which was a major disappointment. It was dry and over cooked. Not served au jus either. If the Rib Room should do one thing right is make a perfect prime rib roast.

    Service was poor. Extremely slow. Empty glasses. Out of bread. Just waiting to order…Would have ordered about twice as much food if the waiter had actually stopped by once in a while. Very disappointing. Food was unremarkable. Cocktails were good. Embarrassed to have brought guests for a nice meal with all the ideal table time.

    This is sacred ground in New Orleans dining, with ghosts of phenomenal past chefs and sublime ingredients. My 35 years recollection is that it underbelly was Creole Italian, with perhaps some Spanish influence via managers and perhaps in the kitchen as well. The management remains at a high level. Sadly the restaurant has lost its downtown, resident business clientele over the years, and the flip-flop clad low budget tourists don't kin to a place like this and thank God for that. What was once a room-heating, busy central brassier, is now a solitary salamander used to warm bread. Locals, please do return, its' a great room and a great place. Your presence will require the kitchen to live up to its former glory. They potential remains, but the provenance now includes a generic hamburger. Come back, Veal Tenet! Come back, locals! They should work on the wine list a bit. I ordered lightly and don't think my food was a sufficient representation of what the restaurant is up to. Table service was first rate.

    Absolutely the worst dining experience I have ever had and I travel a lot. Reservations were for 7:30pm but we were not seated until nearly 8pm. Waited for a waiter. Finally one showed up and said there was a miscommunication. We ordered drinks and and appetizer as well as dinner. About 30 minutes later the appetizers showed up but after an hour my wife ask they just charge us a for the drinks and appetizers and we would be on our way. Open Table should take them off the restaurants on their website if the make commitments they cannot keep: like a reservation!

    We had reservations and Bree took 30 minutes to seat us. Once we were seated our waiter was very good that we waited a long period of time to order and then our food was an hour and a half from the time we sit down we finally asked for a manager and she could help us. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    We had online reservations and arrived on time. We were seated by an unfortunately rude young lady. Once seated, there was no follow up. My husband had get another servers attention. We received our drinks and appetizers within a reasonable time. The main meal took so long to come out that we canceled our order. Payed for the wine, not so great appetizer, and bread, and left. Wouldn't recommend waiting your time. Pretty terrible.
