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. General Manager Jason Turner

    It has been over 50 years since last dining in the Rib Room.. I wish that it would have been busier and similar to what was experienced years ago but that was the only negative to the evening. Excellent food and the service was equally good. Great memories relived. Thanks Norman Marks

    Food was terrible the prime rib omelet was so salty and dry (really dry), the fruit bowl looked like it had been sitting out for a couple days. The eggs benedict was ok but the tomatoes had 1 piece and it was dried up and the size of a dime. The manager did comp. the meal which was nice but we will never go back there to eat. Dennis

    Bread was not good, just a sub bun. French onion soup had a piece of plastic in it but they did comp it so thank you. Chicken was dry. Salad was just lettuce and dressing and did not live up to the actual description (missing items). Crab pops were amazing and the prime rib was delicious. Had to call another waiter k we for water several times as ours arepa served us. Need to improve service.

    We were seated right away and Jyllian, our server was most attentive. The prime rib and ribeye steaks were served at the desired temperatures. Caesar salads were fresh and the French onion soup was delicious. The Rib Room is our steakhouse of choice when in New Orleans. It’s consistent, affordable and a relaxing atmosphere for fine dining.

    My wife and I dined at the Rib Room and enjoyed our meal. The filet was delicious and fish of the day was very good as well. My wife can’t stop talking about the beet salad. Service was very polished however was a bit slow at times. Peach cobbler was good, not great.

    I could write a review about the food if we had ever been served. We had an 8:00 dinner reservation, which we were on time for. At 8:15 we had to ask the hostess if our table was ready. She irritably showed us to a table. It took a few minutes for our server to come to our table and he brought our drinks fairly quickly. We placed an order for appetizers when we ordered our drinks. He came back a short while later to take our dinner order. When I said that I would like the chicken, he said that it had been overcooked in prep and was not a good choice. I let him know that I would need a few more minutes to decide. 40 minutes later, our appetizers had never come and there was no sign of our server. Other servers were walking by us waiting on other tables and looked extremely curious as to why we had been sitting there for so long and still had menus in front of us. But none of them stopped to inquire why. My husband finally went to get the hostess to see if she could find our server. 15 minutes after that with still no sign of our server, or a manager, or appetizers, we left. Went across the street to the Royal House and had drinks and food within 20 minutes. Not exactly the experience I wanted for my husband's 65th birthday, but better to eat before 10:00 p.m. than not at all.

    After eating in a few restaurants in Nola (like Arnaud’s), I was disappointed with the Rib Room. The bread and the Korean rib appetizer were the highlights. I thought that the herb 1/2 chicken was nothing special nor was the side dish. Th dining room was lovely however the food was nothing special.

    We had reservations for 6 and were told we had to wait because there were two tables ahead of us. That was fine. We were seated and waited quite awhile before the waiter came. He was nice but… We placed our order and waited about an hour for the appetizer and another hour it more for the entree. We had to ask how much longer we’d have to wait for our food. It fi ally came. My husband’s steak and daughter’s steaks were cold. I ordered fish and the two small pieces were the size of chicken nuggets. Needless to say the fish was returned and we ended up boxing the food to go. Oh I failed to mention they also failed to include the sides with e entrees. This is one I’d definitely never ever ever venture to again.

    We frequent here for prime rib. The quality has gone down the last two times we came in. I had to send my overcooked prime rib back the last two times we dined. Yesterday, when my dish came out medium well instead of medium rare, I immediately sent it back. They brought out another a few minutes later and it was medium, and was an awful cut of meat. Disappointed in my go to place for prime rib. The bread & water guy is SUPER nice and always smiling, so that earns some points for sure, but the kitchen must do better.

    For a restaurant that is about meat. Both of our meals were prepared wrong. The filet was rare and the lamb was well done. Not what we wanted at all. We also found a hair in our French fries. For an empty restaurant we would have hated to see it on a busy night. After spending over 200$ on dinner, it should have been way better.

    We were led to the tiniest table in the room. Our elbows hitting a wall. One of us is disabled and can benefit from a little more table space, and since the room was not even half full and there were 3 slightly larger empty tables a few feet from us, we asked if we could have one of those. No we couldn’t because they must assign tables in an assigned rotation. After much discussion but not before staff embarrassed us, they acquiesced but the evening was already spoiled. Still not sure why their rules take precedence over a diner’s comfort. The restaurant never got any fuller. Our server was nice but the hostess and maitre’d could benefit from diversity training. Food was fine. Lovely setting.

    My husband and I enjoyed a quiet and intimate dinner at the Rib Room. We loved Kendrick, our waiter! He was friendly, personable and attentive. The special of the day, black drum in a crawfish sauce was an unexpected surprise and absolutely delicious!! We will definitely dine there again when we return to NOLA.
