The service was good at Rib Room but the overall experience was just ok not great as I was expecting.
Great. We loved it.
Great service, excellent food both quality and taste. Options for everybody's taste. Little bit pricy but worth every dollar.
As an annual guest of the hotel we always try to eat at the Rib Room and were not disappointed this year. Husband had the turtle soup and foie gras as entree. Both delicious. I had a surprisingly wonderful shepherds pie. Not your usual s/p, but loaded with chunks of roast beef and veg covered in creamed parsnip potatoes. Cant wait to t ry that at home! We had a bottle of very commendable and reasonable Filus label Malbec to complement the dinner. Our waitress Norma was attentive tho the room was very busy.
Expected slower service due to New Year's crowd, but the service was really, really slow. Still a great spot in the Quarter and we'll be back, but not pleased at all with the level of service this time.
I booked the reservation to take advantage of the Reveillon meals being offered at select restaurants around town. Unfortunately, The Rib Room chose not to serve their Reveillon menu on Dec. 30 and there was not any mention of this on the website with the special menus. Very disappointing. Our food was good, but not great, excepting the French onion soup, which was off the charts great. My rib eye was brought out medium instead of the requested medium rare (though it still tasted wonderful) and my $8 side of Brussels sprouts cooked with bacon was a dish of complete mush. My friend enjoyed her salad and prime rib. The most disappointing part of the meal was our server who was exceedingly condescending. He seemed relatively unconcerned that my steak was not cooked to order and completely unconcerned that my side dish was awful. Plus he kept calling my friend and me, two women in our 40s, "girls." He was awful. This wasn't nearly as great as my last experience there (2 years ago) but I'll definitely go back given the chance. Just will request a better server.
Overall I was very disappointed. I made reservations a week in advance. We arrived an hour before our reservation to have cocktails in the lounge. I let the hostess know that we were there early and would have drinks until our reservation time. At our reservation time they told us we needed to stand there and wait as our waiter wasn't ready for us....never heard that one before. My mother can't stand very long, so after a while I insisted they sit us....which they reluctantly did. They must have been understaffed for the evening as it took quite a while to get the attention of our waiter and that was the case most of the evening. It was a Saturday night during a busy holiday weekend....so this should not have been a surprise. I browsed the wine list while contemplating our entrée selections. I was thinking of a French Bordeaux so I asked the waiter to speak with the sommelier about the options. I was told that there wasn't one. So, I asked the waiter if he could help me with the options. He indicated that he didn't know anything about the wines. So....for a restaurant of this caliber and reputation I was terribly disappointed. The services was well below expectations and the lack of any wine knowledge was mind blowing. The food was pretty good.....not fantastic as should be expected. My father had the fish almandine and it was very dry. My duck was good. My wife and mother had the fish special which was good.
Unfortunately I cannot recommend this as a good stop when there are numerous other great places within steps of this one and throughout the French Quarter.
Lunch in the Rib Room was great choice! William
The server was polite and attentive. Went with the Turtle soup and Beet/Goat cheese salad and they were delicious. Complimentary valet parking was such a nice perk too!
Best prime rib in NOLA!!! Great ambiance as well.
Excellent service and meal. I have been eating here since 1969 whenever I am in town. The service and the quality of the food never varies, always excellent. And the price is in line for the quality.
