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 Lee McCullough

Went for my wife's b-day and they spoiled her big time. Upon arriving she was given a white rose. All of the staff wished her happy birthday when they came to our table or passed by it.

It was a good evening with friends. We had a nice table for four, but service was slow and my beef tips had a lot of fat. Our dining lasted over 2 hours, but the restaurant was full and our wait staff was very nice.

I should have looked online, but every time we've been here before, we ordered and absolutely LOVED the lamb chops. They are even still pictured on the website in a photo. However, they no longer offer this on their menu, and were also out of the filet mignon, so my meat choices were basically prime rib or a ribeye. I was not in the mood for either, so I had a very good turtle soup and bread with butter. Not the meal I had planned, but all else was very good. Without the lamb, I'll have no reason to return.

Food was good, not great! Kale and apple salad was fabulous. Debris sandwich was dry as was the fried fish sandwich. Disappointing to say the least.

Service was very attentive.

Great dinner. We sat at the bar and the bartenders are engaging. The only odd thing was we had reservations for 8pm and the kitchen was closing at 8 so we were rushed to decide.

Been there so many times in the past and was excellent. Now the Menu abbreviated and not what I expected. The side selection & portions were small and not well presented. The food was good not great and our server was attentive and the highlight of our visit.

Grilled prime rib was very good. Unfortunately the medium well done ribeye was over cooked. If you want medium well, you should ask for medium I suppose. We enjoyed the greens and grits.

I used OpenTable to make a late lunch reservation for 2 PM. The server began pressuring us as soon as we got there to place our order because “the kitchen closes at 2”. This was a Father’s Day meal, and I wanted it to be a pleasant experience. Instead, we felt rushed and unwelcomed the entire time. The food was great, and the server was friendly. However, the fact that we felt rushed the whole time really put a damper on things. Had I known their kitchen closed at 2, I wouldn’t have made the reservation, but that should not have affected our dining experience as it’s not our fault that the reservations were accepted at the same time the kitchen closes. Definitely won’t be back.

It was my friend’s birthday and their first trip to New Orleans. We had to send our steaks back twice. Once because they were very over cooked and once because they were very undercooked. Had to ask the waiter three separate times for more bread. Finally had to speak to the manager who was arrogate and seemed very unconcerned about my complaints. Very disappointed and underwhelmed. Will NOT be back.

The food was delicious!! The martinis were great!! They seemed like they could’ve been a little short-staffed. But I think that is the case right now for many businesses. Overall, we had a nice, long leisurely lunch. Glad we weren’t in a hurry!

We celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary. The food was outstanding and while our server was clearly hustling, it was just as clear that the restaurant was short staffed either in the kitchen, on the floor or both. Overall, a wonderful night, as usual.

The service was quite poor. I was surprised as I had not been to the Rib Room since the pandemic. I used to enjoy it and the service was always good. This time the service was terrible - everything took a long time despite the fact that the restaurant was nearly empty. Disappointing.
