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, fresh Louisiana seafood, and Sunday Jazz Brunch Grand Buffet which includes Bottomless Mimosas.

The restaurant was extremely loud and the food was below average for the price. We both ordered prime rib. I ordered the King Cut which probably 1/3 of it was fat. I asked for medium and it came out well. I am not one to send food back in a fine restaurant but it wasn't worth the money.

This was our first time at the Rib Room in many, many years. We remembered it being very good, but it was magnificent! The service, the drinks, the food - all fabulous! The special fish of the day, flounder, was excellent. Our server, Sarah, was very knowledgeable and helpful in choosing both the wine and the entrees). It was an anniversary dinner with friends, and it could not have been better!

warm reception, seated quickly , took a little while for our server to show up with dinner presentation was very nice. My wife had a filet which was good, maybe a little over done , my prime rib was done right but full of grizzle and fat to the point I showed it to our server when I could find her, Rene ...she seemed more interested in catering to some larger parties manager came over ,apologized and comped the meal and was pleasant about it .... aside for my prime rib it was a pleasant experience and would give it another try

We've been going to The Rib Room for years, but this was our first Thanksgiving dinner after enjoying Christmas Day lunch there last year. The manager Allen, always runs a smooth dining experience and our server, Andre, has been our favorite and has been there for 20 years, I believe. Always consistent here and this why we're frequent guests.

We have dined here many times and enjoyed our experience. However, our Thanksgiving Day experience could have been much better. The turkey entree was quite bland with little taste and the service fell short with ordered items missing and drinks requests falling on deaf ears.
I must add that we visited the Rib Room just 24 hours later and could not fault the food and the service on that occasion was exceptional.

The food was ok (except for the excellent salads), but not terribly creative and relatively expensive for New Orleans. Service was very attentive.

We love the Rib Room. Food and service are consistently great. We had an exceptional experience this time because of our server Jason. He was very helpful and attentive. He even gave us the low down on the Brussel sprout side that was over the top. If your looking for a very comfortable fine dining experience then you can’t go wrong with the Rib Room.

Service was very slow and it wasn’t busy when we ordered. Took a very long time to receive order.
Food was not as good as I remember. It’s been years since I’ve dined there.

The food is quite fine, but it is the service that sets this place apart. From the front desk to the busboy, everyone is attentive, pleasant, and helpful. The room itself is stunning which adds to the experience of dining well in the Quarter.

I wanted to love it.. From the garage where you valet to the restaurant itself through the interior, there is no signage, so it’s not an easy find. We had the seared scallop appetizer. It was delicious, but the scallops were totally soft all around; no sear. The gumbo was very dark and had great spice; would definitely order this again. The apps had our expectations high for our steaks. My husbands king prime rib was cooked properly but lacked seasoning. The horseradish and sour cream accompaniment was good. My filet was sad. I was sad. The seasoning was definitely lacking, but the main issue was the temp. I ordered medium rare, and it was close to medium well. My husband tried mine and was surprised I didn’t send it back. They gave us a complimentary mini macaron plate for my husband’s birthday which was really nice!

We were their for the first day of the Grand Buffet. The food was good fair amount of choices and preparation was great. However I would change the pancake station to crepes. The desert table was more breakfast pastries with two small very good desserts but no spoons for the small cups. Service was a bit slow at first then it picked up it was like everybody was confused we had to wait for serving utensils for some items. The down falll was the price to me 65 per person and additional 15 for mimoss. The buffet was large but I have been to larger ones that included your bottomless mimosas for less. So 80 per person with drinks is a bit too steep in my opinion.

We booked for prime rib but then learned out of prime rib so we had the 16 oz rib eye special, which was over seasoned.

Our server was great but the kitchen didnt follow. Food arrived at different time for everyone.
No music nor atmosphere in the restaurant.
Took ages to get our wine.
