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

    Personally, this is not worth the experience. Although my son loved the rib crown cut, the server was curt and inattentive.

    The atmosphere is so quintessentially New Orleans and the service is excellent without being stuffy or obtrusive. We had a table by a window and truly enjoyed the people watching!! All of this before even getting to a delightful and delicious meal. The Fried Oyster Pastis and chilled beet salad we’re superb. I got the 16oz Prime Rib and it was perfectly prepared. I definitely plan to make a return visit.

    The Rib Room has always had a fantastic atmosphere in the heart of the French Quarter. You will feel very comfortable there, and enjoy a vibrant scene and a great meal. Don't forget to check out the rooftop pool for the best view in New Orleans.

    Had reservations for 7pm, arrived early and were asked to sit in lounge. Hostess Bree never called us and as we went to her station 2 people without reservations were seated where we wanted to sit. Bree never came back until we were seated by someone else. Had prime rib which was supposedly'slow roasted'. It was grisly with lots of unroasted fat. Also, a small spoonful of kale and mushy roasted potatoes. Have been here before and had excellent meals but this was an expensive disaster.

    It has been over 50 years since last dining in the Rib Room.. I wish that it would have been busier and similar to what was experienced years ago but that was the only negative to the evening. Excellent food and the service was equally good. Great memories relived. Thanks Norman Marks

    Food was terrible the prime rib omelet was so salty and dry (really dry), the fruit bowl looked like it had been sitting out for a couple days. The eggs benedict was ok but the tomatoes had 1 piece and it was dried up and the size of a dime. The manager did comp. the meal which was nice but we will never go back there to eat. Dennis

    Bread was not good, just a sub bun. French onion soup had a piece of plastic in it but they did comp it so thank you. Chicken was dry. Salad was just lettuce and dressing and did not live up to the actual description (missing items). Crab pops were amazing and the prime rib was delicious. Had to call another waiter k we for water several times as ours arepa served us. Need to improve service.

    We were seated right away and Jyllian, our server was most attentive. The prime rib and ribeye steaks were served at the desired temperatures. Caesar salads were fresh and the French onion soup was delicious. The Rib Room is our steakhouse of choice when in New Orleans. It’s consistent, affordable and a relaxing atmosphere for fine dining.

    My wife and I dined at the Rib Room and enjoyed our meal. The filet was delicious and fish of the day was very good as well. My wife can’t stop talking about the beet salad. Service was very polished however was a bit slow at times. Peach cobbler was good, not great.

    The pork belly appetizer was not hot. It was warm. The prime rib was, as expected, very tasty. The loaded mashed potato was extremely over-salted.
