Squaremeal Review of Rib Room Bar & Restaurant ?

DUE TO CLOSE IN EARLY 2017 AND REOPEN AS TOM KERRIDGE LONDON FOLLOWING A REFURBISHMENT

Famous as a bastion of Britishness for over 50 years, The Rib Room “oozes grace and style rather than off-the-wall genius”; it also pleases a smart Anglo-American crowd with its discreet atmosphere, impeccably professional service and well-presented food. Inside, it bears all the hallmarks of five-star hotel luxury with deep leather seats, generously spaced tables and plenty of expensive trappings, while the menu deals in unreformed British cooking – oysters, prawn cocktail (“to die for”), top-notch Dover sole and some of the best steaks in town, according to its many fans. Lobster thermidor, game and ‘seasonally modern’ specials such as wild sea bass with crayfish tails, broccoli, seaweed and clam chowder are also worth trying. A formidable iPad wine list, regular live jazz and the prospect of exemplary G&Ts on the “secret” terrace earn bonus points.

Wine List of the Year Award Finalist

A beautifully put-together longer wine list that is clear, well designed and commendably accurate. Although the French section gets the headlines, there’s clear thought and effort that has gone into the likes of Australia and the US as well, while the iPad list adds a further modern twist.

Grace and Style

by   bronze reviewer (10)

Oct 2013

The main claim to fame of the Rib Room is that it does British food well and it undoubtedly scores in that respect. The Classics on the menu looked a little staid to us but the Seasonal dishes seemed to offer imagination and contrasting flavours so we went for the latter. The food is extremely well done – great flavours and very well presented. Nothing too risky though – this is cooking which oozes grace and style but not off the wall genius. The atmosphere is quite relaxed – smart but not overbearing....

My husband and I treated ourselves to a three-course dinner yesterday evening and we were pleasantly surprised at how good it was despite a recent review I'd seen in the Guardian. We both had beef tartar to start which was prepared at our table exactly to our liking. I had the dover sole for main, which was a bit pricey but well worth it. My husband had the sirloin steak which was tasty and cooked medium to precision. Our desserts were a gloriously sticky ginger pudding with cinnamon ice cream and...

The restaurant itself is a lot nicer that it looks in the photographs online , the feel I got from the hotel as a whole was very much a business impression, quite masculine as well. The Jemeriah also has a cigar menu , with their own blended cigar which customers are invited to enjoy on the terrace. We sat in one of the private dining rooms which seated 12 people, the rooms are very cosy and have a warm front room feel to them, big lights that are dimmed and big pieces of art work. They are closed...

At the risk of putting the tweeters/twits/tw@s (what is the collective noun for somebody who thinks anyone cares what they say in 140 characters or less?) at @hardenbites# to sleep, here's a review from a lawyer, not paid for at all, let alone by the word. The Rib Room sounds like some feminist gathering place, which is an odd choice for a male lawyer to go, seeing as how our profession is so notoriously sexist. Yes, yes, we all know that senior partners prattle on about how much women add to the...

    Located on Sloane Street inside the Jumeirah Hotel is The Rib Room. It&s named very apropos to their renowned roast rib of beef. But there is much more to this restaurant than this one dish, they have an extensive menu.
    The restaurant is a large open plan space, beautifully designed and decorated. From the moment you enter it feels like a special place, and a team of proud waiters are waiting to greet you. They showed us to our table, and the entire evening was a pleasure to experience.
