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 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 Gene Fields

In a city full of terrific restaurants serving incredible food, this fine dining restaurant is one of the best. The staff was delightful and attentive. Our waiter had terrific suggestions. For our anniversary dinner, we had starters of outstanding French Onion Soup and Bacon-Cheese Fried Oysters, followed by the chef's special 14oz Prine Rib with a side of Shrimp and Grits. Great wine and desert. Spectacular!

WE entertained friends from Florida. The biggest disappoint many was the French bread. It was stale and you tried to serve it as fresh. I had told Our friends how special the bread was!!! I realize it was Mardi Gras day but I also know that other restaurants had very greasy bread.

I can’t express just how amazing it all was. The device was friendly and fun. The Prime rib was the best I ever had (and I’ve had a lot) and the Chef knew exactly how I wanted it prepared and executed it to perfection, and added a fun commentary during its prep! If you don’t come here for a amazing dinner, you’ll have missed out on something special.

Extremely good food in a chic atmosphere, in the heart of the French Quarter. Our waitress was good but the other staff not so much...especially the bartenders.

The food was delicious and there were lots of choices. Great 3 piece band played. I think the service of the wait staff could have been better. Our waiter seemed to be doing most of the work while several others just stood around. Had to ask for drink refills and champagne several times. For the price, the service should have been top notch. Overall it was a nice jazz brunch. Work on service.

We stayed at the Omni Royal Orleans and decided to try the Rib Room restaurant. It was outstanding! Our server, Hugo, was funny and courteous. My husband had the King Cut Prime rib, which did not disappoint at 18 oz with the bone. My 8 oz filet was perfectly cooked. Wasn't busy at 5:30 when we arrived but did get more busy as we kept dining. Great experience!

I’ve dined at the rib room multiple times, unable to count.
As a New Orleanian, it has been a go to favorite, often frequented.
Service was deplorable.
Order a martini on the rocks and it’s served straight up.
Order well brand and premiums are charged
Order one cocktail and multiple more show up throughout dinner, that were not ordered
Order soup before entree; no point i it comes out with salads.
I hope your not thirsty, water and Tea will only be refilled after the meal.
And the food; average prime rib experience. Avoid the lump crabmeat salad; heavy on the vinegar and salt. Simply put, I do not recommend at this time. Having discussed with friends the next day, it’s well known that the Rib Room has slipped. Hopefully, things will soon return to the better.

The meal was extremely overpriced for the food and service. Some of the food was bland. Although they had 4 salads on the buffet, none was very good. I would have liked more dressing, but there was none available. The shrimp creole was runny and had relatively small shrimp in it. The grillards was good with a good taste and texture. I love prime rib, and go there for this. In the buffet, the chef sliced the meat very thin, so to really get any, you would have to go back several times. It, however, was tasty and rare like I like it. It took active requests on our part to clear dishes we had finished from the table - this should have been "automatic" in a buffet! The choice of desserts was limited, and the ones they had were very sub-par for the "premier" dining experience I was expecting. Unfortunately, I would not go back, even though I love the ambiance. We go to Arnauds for brunch frequently - their food never disappoints, is of high quality, is $25 per person less expensive than the Rib Room, and the service is impeccable..

Food was incredible. We’ve been fans of Doris for the longest time, but the prime rib gave Doris a run for their money. Will be back!
