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!

“Great Beef Wellington but there are better steakhouses in Dubai”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

I've never seen this place super busy and the décor leads to a more romantic setting.

Food is good and I'm a fan of the Beef Wellington although the potato croquette accompaniment isn't that great.

Unfortunately, the starter / appetiser menu leaves a lot to be desired and the desserts are just ok - nothing to write home about.

Last time I was there, I tried the Ribs (after all the restaurant is named after them) and was disappointed. However, my friend had the lamb chops and these were good.

“The Rib Room, Dubai”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

If you would like to have a good quality grilled steak - this is the venue. The menu has a typical steak offer and you will definitely find the right fit for you. However, the design and deco is missing warmth and atmosphere. The place wasn't very busy.

“Great steakhouse, set-up & Service”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Rib Room is a famous steakhouse located in the Emirates Tower hotel in DIFC. Famous because he was rewarded with several prices during severel years.

The set-up is nice and class and service great and Professional. I went with two colleagues and we all took the business lunch (AED 110 for 2 plates, or AED 130 for 3 plates).

Otherwise, you can choose "à la carte" menu, your favorite dish (steak, fish, ribs, also vegetarian options).
Bread they gave at the beginning of the lunch with butter and cheese cream is perfect.
For the business lunch, you have 3 choices for appetizers, main courses and dessert.
For main courses, we all choose the striploin with thym sauce, potatoes confits and mashed carrot. But a contrario, for appetizers each one choose a different plate. Cardamone and carrot soup for me, ricotta cheese and salad for one and the last person choose the beef tartar.

Nice presentation and food.

I recommand with closed eyes this restaurant.

“Simple”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Simple service, need to improve. Needs satisfactions after food, explanations and less attention to the table...
We had dinner a week ago on saturday. It was our food not cooked well as we wanted. I ordered irish ribeye medium well, but it was medium. Same like my friend also. She ordered tenderloin medium but it was medium well! However thank you for everything! We'd enjoyed our dinner! All the best!
