Description: Fine dining for meat loversGive in to the primal side of your appetite with a carnivorous dining experience of incomparable quality. With its dark red walls, sumptuous leather seats and intimate atmosphere, The Rib Room is not your usual steakhouse. Beautiful presentation and impeccable service from our waiting staff allow you to enjoy your steak in style. The Rib Room's sophisticated menu offers an exquisite selection of succulent grilled meats, prepared to your exact preference. Be it a flavourful, tender Chateaubriand or an Oakey Angus Reserve Tenderloin, you can be assured of prime cuts, prepared with finesse and flair by our celebrated chefs. Seafood and vegetarian options are also available if you'd prefer a lighter meal. A meal at The Rib Room is one to cherish - so much so that some guests have their steak knives engraved with their names and displayed in the restaurant as a permanent reminder of their visit!

“Lovely ambience, steak a disappointment”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Took husband for birthday meal expecting a decent steak. Restaurant itself is lovely with relaxed vibe and decor. Service also nice with only complaint being that wine was filled far too regularly. Real disappointment was steaks. Quite thin, no flavor and forgettable. Sides were nice. Had much better steak at seafire, tribes and whole host of other steak outlets with various budget. Won't return.

“Steak is the best i've had....”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Myself and 5 friends came here recently and it was such a great experience.
The service was as expected and of the highest order.
If you want to eat the best steak in Dubai, then you must visit here.
The atmosphere was good, and the beers surprisingly good.
Thank you for a great evening.

My wife and I went for dinner here a few weeks ago and were recommended the Wagyu Beef Rib Eye and the Wagyu Tenderlion. Excellent beef and cooked to perfection. Excellent atmosphere.

“A good restaurant even if not exceptionnel”
Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant is good but you can find with a better quality/price ratio everywhere.
The rib is good and also the bread, but my wife choose a burgher and was not so good.
I don't recommend it.
