The Omni Royal Orleans Hotel is a gem within the French Quarter located near Jackson Square across from the Louisiana Supreme Court building. This was a nice easy few block walk down Royal St from the Marriott on Canal. Not the best signs when you enter through the hotels front entrance; go up the stairs to the main lobby and... More

The Rib Room is one of my absolute favorites in this city. I have been two times recently, and both have been incredible. The first was a business lunch, and staff was so attentive and took care of everything but gave us our space to talk and discuss what we needed. The second I went, I took one of my... More

My wife and I had Thanksgiving dinner at the Rib Room this year. Met our 2 sons and new daughter in law and her parents and my sister. We were given a table with a great view of the restaurant and Royal Street. Had a 3 piece jazz band going table to table paying old New Orleans tunes and taking... More

This was my second time dining in the Rib Room. I booked a private dinner for 9 in the Pipkin room with Nicole. She was great to work with, very attentive to detail and accommodating to our requests. There are three private dining rooms in the basement of the Rib Room. One accommodates about 6, and the other two accommodate... More

This restaurant has a very pretty dining room for Sunday jazz brunch. My son and husband had the BBQ shrimp for a appetizer and they both said it was delicious. I had the blackened steak and it was prefect, tender with great seasoning. They both had the fish which they said was very good also. Unlimited mimosas and a very... More

We were in New Orleans for a few nights between Christmas & New Year's, staying @ The Omni. We chose to eat one night @ their RibRoom. It was a truly memorable evening in gorgeous surroundings with outstanding food. The service was impeccable.

Great location and great for drinks. It is right in the middle of it all. It's a nice break from all the craziness on the streets.

Best described as quiet dining, if you don't want to leave the hotel. Do look for a special offer like the one in my photo, as the regular fare appears uninspired, compared to the excitement of the rest of New Orleans. We paid $50.00 for two simple breakfast plates, because we were leaving this hotel on an early morning tour,... More

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.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
