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

Food was incredible. Atmosphere did not remind me we were in the middle of a pandemic, so a refreshing change. Service was fair in that table checks were minimal at best.

COVID has thinned down the prime rib here. It was quite salty. It tasted good, though.

The best turtle soup I have ever eaten...and I have eat turtle soup in a lot of places. The best rib-eye I have ever eaten. One of the best filet mignons I have ever eaten. The sweet corn grits were absolutely amazing. The service was exceptional and attentive, as well as friendly, and the ambiance is what you would want from a great establishment. If you have never gone to The Rib Room then you MUST go the next time you are in NOLA.

The Rib Room once again, did not disappoint. My family has been celebrating milestones at the Rib Room for over 25 years, and we are always delighted. This time Andre was our server and made the experience PERFECT. Thanks to the whole staff for creating such a special graduation dinner for my daughter.

Understanding that these are strange times, we were prepared for less than top-notch service and food. Our server was wonderful and warned us ahead of time that unfortunately, he was working the whole restaurant by himself because management hadn't planned properly. Therefore, our food came out warm, not hot. We also waited a long time to get everything, even bread and our drinks. Luckily, we were the first ones so I can imagine what other tables were feeling. The quality of the steaks were also not up to the normal standard - thin and very fatty. The chef OVERCOOKED a requested RARE and MEDIUM request to being fully well-done. Very sad. The roast chicken was very salty and dry. We won't return until life gets back to normal but we're content with just being able to to eat out again.

Walked in for Lunch on a Friday and it was clear that the Commanders Palace lunch crowd had moved over to the Rib Room, very cool but I was under dressed! Fabulous lunch with fabulous service; a thoroughly enjoyable experience, thank you very much.

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.
