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 of 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 Jason Turner

Great food and service. Bottomless mimosas along with live Sunday jazz music makes it a great experience.

The prime rib was way beyond marbled - several huge chunks of fat. Everything else was average. Service was good.

There was almost no one in the restaurant, food with few options, and a very limited wine list!

The quality of the service has really gone downhill. Mediocre at best now. I had the $62 piece of prime rib. I pointed out it was missing its Grilled w/Onions & Worcestershire Glaze the server told me it melted into the meat. I’ve never seen onions and the flavor of Worcestershire sauce just melt away. I would have said something a second time, but he never came back to check on us again. I had to ask someone else for our check. Wasn’t even busy.

Was glad for a restaurant in the French Quarter to be open on a cold Monday evening - so many were not. Advertised as "dressy" - but in a coat and tie felt over dressed vs other patrons. Ordered prime rib medium rare - was not told they only had well done left until after it was served. Substitute Rib Eye cooked as requested.
Service a little slow - manager/hostess did keep checking. Nice house salad - mixed drinks OK - again a little slow.

Food was decent but the service was poor until the food came out. Then we got plenty of “are you done yet” questions. They didn’t look like they were prepared for brunch for the holiday.

We ordered eggs Benedict for breakfast. We were there an hour before they brought it out. It was cold and we sent it back and left. The table next to us sat down and ordered much later but got their food before us. Bad management. Not what you would expect from such an establishment. I won't be back. BTW been going to NO for appx 30 years so I know the good restaurants from the bad.

Extremely disappointing…We we’re seated 15’ late and then waited ONE HOUR AND FIFTEEN MINUTES for the first course on the pre-fixe. We got the second course and were told they ran out of the first course. The best option on the second course was also sold out. The desert was also sold out. The steak was mediocre and the sides were inedible—clearly pre-cooked a long time ago and reheated. They were actually cold. Never got the drinks we ordered. Nearly impossible to believe a celebratory expensive New Years meal in New Orleans can be so bad. We timed it so we’re seated at 9:30 and done by 11:30 to celebrate New Years. We couldn’t because we weren’t done with dinner until after midnight. $500 for a party of four totally wasted away. It really couldn’t be any worse.

We were seated an hour past our reservation time and only seated because we started to crowd the host stand. After being seated it took a long time to get drinks and begin the prefixe menu. The prefixe menu was published and forced upon us after committing to the reservation and too late to make a change. We noticed our service was about 20 mins behind the table next to us. The food when served was obviously sitting in holding before delivery. Only silver lining was sneaking on the roof of the hotel to watch NYE fireworks - highly recommend!

Christmas menu VERY limited as compared to other special occasions. Soups were excellent- thank goodness.

If you chose prime rib - your ONLY side was fried brussel sprouts. I realize you want to limit the menu during a holiday with limited staff — but how much effort does it take to bake a potato?? We asked - but we’re told NO substitutions on sides. Not very accommodating. So the meal was prime rib and French bread.

No issues with the food, pretty tasty overall. Despite not being particularly busy, our server struggled to take our order, bring our food or refills. The manager actually brought out some of food and apologized for the wait.
I honestly can’t recommend this restaurant to my friends and I won’t be returning

Went for annual Christmas luncheon - fine dining. Booked at 1:30. Group was all there by 1:40. As we are just looking at menu, waitress says we have to hurry bc kitchen closed at 2:00.
Also, no champagne. None. At the Omni hotel/ RibRoom. At Christmas.
We left.

Went for lunch but they only offered brunch. Wanted onion soup and the gladly accommodated us. It was excellent. The poached egg and crab cakes was delicious. Would have gotten 5 stars if lunch had been available.

Book this for our 25th anniversary, specifically noted on the reservation. Waiter did not even ask or acknowledged it. Prime rib was inconsistently cooked: juicy in the middle, salty on the sides. Poor value for the price. There are a lot of good restaurants in NOLA, do not waste your time and money here.

We were thinking there would be music and better food options like in the past for Christmas time. It was WAY too quiet. No fun Christmas activity going on. No fun drink specials like before. Really missed the Christmas cookie martini. This was our third year at the Rib Room and we were very disappointed. Had to go to a different restaurant just to have dessert.
