About The Rib Room at the Omni Royal Orleans

For 50 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. In the restaurant's wine cellar, 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, fresh Louisiana seafood, and champagne brunch on Sunday.

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.

We had a 6:15 reservation and the restaurant was not busy. We ordered wine and cocktails. The cocktails were nothing special. We were a party of 6 and all 6 meals including sides were over salted. The waiter asked how everything was and we said salty. Nothing more said. No apology or I’ll let the kitchen know. We left the restaurant and bought 6 bottles of water. The service was mediocre. Waiter was nice but we had to ask for butter, sherry for the turtle soup. This is certainly not our first time at the Rib Room, we’re locals but it will be a while before we return.

My wife and I were celebrating a special occasion so I booked a room at the rib room. We got all dressed up (which i never do) and made it to our reservation on time at 8:30. We were seated by 9 o’clock which is not too bad. But then by 945 we only had water and French bread. The manager came by and said he was coming to take our order and he never came back. Our waitress came by one time told us high And she would be back, and she never came back. It Took so long, I started to look around me at other tables and NOBODY in the restaurant was eating. Only one table had food on it . We were so disappointed in this restaurant, I will never go there again. I would not recommend this place to anybody!!! So disappointing. Thanks for ruining our special night

We ate at the Rib Room for nostalgia because a there is quite a family story about a relative working there fifty years ago. We both ordered the princess prime rib. It was more than enough food with the accompanying sides. I would recommend medium rare cook on the meat. Our server was very attentive, and it was a lovely atmosphere.

I’ve been there on a few occasions.
My experience has always been great, however this time it was so so.
Got seated at 830 but did not get food till almost 10 Pm. Restaurant didn’t seem to be extra crowded. Our order wasn’t very complicated.
Food was good, we just lost our appetite while waiting such a long time.
Sorry.

Hugo our excellent service was outstanding. My turtle soup was delicious, the Prime Rib(Mom & I split the queen cut) was perfectly rare and perfectly seasoned, and the chocolate bread pudding with a glass of Port was a perfect finish. We loved this place-no wonder it’s been here over 50 years!

My college aged son and I ordered steaks and were never asked by the server how we wanted them cooked. They arrived completely rare. Had to send mine back twice and after a considerable wait to get the steak cooked to medium. The restaurant was not even busy so we were completely baffled as to why this took so long. The creamed spinach was beyond terrible . There is a reason why it is easy to get a reservation at this restaurant. Don't bother. Head to Dickie Brennans for steak in the area.

Wonderful place! We were a little hesitant at first, as we were seated in kind of an odd location (next to the bar, all alone, and next to a window), but after people watching for a while, it really was fun. Our server was excellent - friendly and attentive, and the food was really good. We are all Prime Rib fans, and the meals were perfect. It is a very enjoyable experience if you are looking for a nice quiet 'upscale' dinner. Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I always enjoy the Rib Room. We live an hour and a half away with no traffic but it is always worth the trip for a special occasion or just to escape life for a bit. We have never had a bad experience. We went last Friday night for our anniversary and it was amazing as always. The staff is among the friendliest I have ever encountered and they will go out of their way to make sure that you have a pleasant experience. Every course is amazing from the French Onion soup and Scallops for the appetizer to the King Cut Chef Special Prime Rib that is truly orgasmic. Make sure when you go to get a window seat and enjoy the many walks of life that New Orleans is known for. Hats off to the staff and Chefs at the Rib Room at the Omni Royal Orleans!

Waited 50 minutes for our first drink to arrive, despite there only being 4 or 5 tables occupied. One steak had to be sent back twice before it was cooked as ordered (this is supposed to be a steak restaurant, recall). The undercooked steak was comped, but nothing further Despite the dismal service. Would you wait 50 mins in an empt bar waiting my for a drink? Tourist Trap, and a highly sub-standard one at that.

We came for the buffet breakfast on a Saturday. We were rushed by the staff, which was seeking to dismantle the buffet and reset the room for lunch. What's the point of a weekend brunch that is shut down at 10:30 a.m. Moreover, the pancakes and waffles got soggy in warming trays, and other stuff was just okay. Disappointing, as I remember the Rib Room decades ago as a destination restaurant--a place to go for a great meal in a lovely environment and this was fast-food quality.
