The Rib Room

Classic steakhouse in Jumeirah Emirates Towers
  • 1

Time Out Says

The Rib Room at Jumeirah Emirates Towers is an ornate steakhouse fit for special occasions. Brimming with elegance – from the modern décor to its immaculate service – it’s everything a fancy venue should be to impress your date or to celebrate something special.

However, there’s nothing unique to make it stand out. Those expecting to be treated to a lavish display of excellently presented cuisine, neat and proper cutlery sets and waiters to serve guest’s every whim will be satisfied. But it’s all a bit same-same.

And that’s also reflected in the food. There is plenty to pick from with wagyu beef burgers, lamb chops, grilled chicken, steaks, plus, of course, ribs from a selection of countries. Despite its name, there’s a decent selection of vegetarian and seafood options, along with an incredible list of relatively reasonably-priced sides (in comparison to other steakhouses) – with the crispy triple cooked hand-cut fries and indulgent macaroni cheese being highlights.

It takes time for the dishes to arrive, due to the impressive presentation. But it’s style over substance – our steak is disappointing, oozing with flavourless juices. Sauces help, but nothing is memorable.

There are things going for The Rib Room in terms of setting and presentation, but dishes need to make more of an impact for diners to return time and again.
