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!

“Spectacular steaks and service - if a little expensive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The Rib Room has to be one of the best meat restaurants in Dubai. It is in the wonderful setting of Emirates Towers and adjacent to the wonderful Agency wine bar. The menu has wide choice of food (mainly meats) with lots of wonderful variations to normal preparations. The prices are a little on the expensive side (particularly when you add in the side dishes) but worth it when you take into account the complete package.
Staff are predominantly brilliant (there was one grumpy manageress on duty the day we were there). The wine list has some very good wines at reasonable prices - relative to the Dubai norm.
The Emirates Towers is a great hotel with lots of atmosphere and always active.
If you can get your hands on a Entertainer Voucher (buy one main course and get the second one free) from a friend, then you will save yourself c Euro 40. So go searching for some friend with a 2013 Entertainer Guide (available locally)
Great experience

“Best steak in Dubai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We've tried steaks in many top restaurants in Dubai but in my view, the Rib Room beats them all. Top quality meat, great wines and good selection of delicious side-dishes. I've been there many times and the service is always flawless and never fails to impress. One of the best meat restaurants I've been in the world. For a romantic date, ask to be seated in one of the side booths as they are more private.

“A nice evening with good steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Nice ambiance and good steaks and many other lovely things on the menu. We had an enjoyable evening.
In common with many Dubai hotels the lighting is very dim and we missed an outside terrace
