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

It was a wonderful meal, lovely atmosphere, and excellent service. I recommend the pork chop or the prime rib. The shrimp was a little over done. Desserts fabulous.

Pretty good experience. Limited beer selection. Please get rid of the vaccine mandate! I know it’s a city ordinance, but the restaurant owners must push back!!!

I love the place bc you can park for free when you go and eat, easy to get to, and make your way to the restaurant. The hostess was on her phone, and I think I startled her, but she showed us to the table. The service was good; I like Renee, but I think she was the only one working maybe, but she did her best to keep up. On to the food, so I have an issue with certain things not being hot, the soup was lukewarm (french onion), the prime ribs were not hot either, which was disappointing. The steak was hot, and the beef rib I had had a slight taste that I couldn't figure out. The salads were great, and the pork belly was GREAT. The sides were ok, and I would skip the greens and the sweet potatoes mash. The meal was ok; I would go back for lunch, maybe breakfast; I heard that it is much better, but I won't be back for dinner; the experience wasn't on par for almost $300. However, I say try it yourself, and I hope you have a better experience than we did.

4 of us dined at the Rib Room for my birthday. The open table reservation worked great.
We did call prior to the date due to covid concerns. The maiter d assured us the resturant tables were properly spaced and they followed guidelines. Upon arrival we were delightfully greeted and immediately escorted to our rerved table next to the window. 1 armless chair was in place at the table as requested. After being seated I noted the overall beauty of the dinning room. The service was great, the waiter (Kendrick) was fun, informed, professional and very helpful. The drinks were good. The appetizers, soups and salad & desert were great. The entrees had mixed reviews. 2 of the prime ribs were not to the temperature / doneness as ordered. 2 attempts by the kitchen, cook did not get it exactly correct. Overall the night was fun, and we enjoyed ourselves. Will give another try sometime. 3.5 stars almost very good. Valet parking was validated. About $100/person.

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.

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.

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.
