Great atmosphere & service. French onion soup, lobster mashed potatoes & crème brûlée absolutely delicious! Nice valet parking.

Ringside has a fabulous wine list, including half bottles. They also have excellent staff and a wonderful wine sommelier. I sat in the lounge area and enjoyed a beet salad. While I looked forward to the prime rib, it was super dry. The staff graciously...replaced it with a petite filet. The filet was very good. This is your typical old school steakhouse with excellent service.More

Had prime rib special. Though in the past we've had some great steak dinners there, but this special was pretty much inedible, super salty, low quality. I had an email response from the "Assistant General Manager" who said he would get back to me, but...I never heard from him again. The service at this restaurant is quite good, but not good enough to outweigh this prime rib special and the dinner tab. All in all, a very disappointing experience after patronizing this restaurant for many years in the past.More

My recent visit to Ringside Steakhouse was a pure delight. The historic ambiance, exceptional service from our waitress in black tie, and outstanding seafood appetizers set the stage for a memorable evening. The steaks were perfection, desserts sinful, and the wine list impressive. Ringside is...a must for those seeking a classic and exquisite dining experience.More

It’s a very unassuming building but inside it’s a great traditional steakhouse. Great steaks, good service and the onion rings may be the best I’ve ever had.

After being patrons for over 15 years, we will not be returning. Our server, Susan, was incredible in all ways, but the rest of our experience was incredibly disappointing. We received our steaks (filet & prime rib) which were both ordered medium. We were asked...to cut into our steaks to make sure they were to our liking. We have been here many times over the years and found this very odd. Do they not have confidence anymore in their kitchen? The prime rib was partly medium, but mostly undercooked, while the filet was not even rare. The filet was sent back and returned still undercooked, along with a very dried out baked potato. The person, Christine (I believe) who brought the steak was incredibly rude and abrupt. She asked if the steak was to our liking and we mentioned it was still under. She rudely said something like, "Every house is different" referring to the color and doneness of the steak. She also reiterated it would cook more after it sat more on the tray. We were treated like we knew nothing and were in the wrong. If I'm paying $80 for a steak, I would sure hope the kitchen would know how to cook it. We overheard other diners being asked to cut into their steaks to make sure they were correct, making it seem even more like something was amiss. We mentioned to Susan what happened, and she had somebody else come over and apologize, which was nice, but still frustrating. They did give us free dessert, but our evening was already ruined by being accosted by Christine(?). After more than 15 years frequenting Ringside as a special occasion go-to, we will be looking elsewhere for our premium dining experience.More

We were seated at a small table there were 4 of us and two of us over 6ft and 200 lbs. we asked the hostess if she had a larger table and she said she didn’t. When the waiter came to take our order he...immediately ask us if we would like a larger table? Yes thank you! The service was great and everyone’s food was excellent except for mine. I had order the dry aged prime rib eye. The steak looked amazing grilled with a perfectly brown outside. The problem was that the steak had so much fat that at least 50% of it was uneatable and because it had such a great color to the outside it was impossible to tell the lean from the fat until I had taken a bite. The waiter did notice how fat it was apologized and offer to comp out onion rings. I worked in the meat business for 40 years and I understand the a prime cut of rib eye can have a lot of fat. In my opinion the chef should of never served that steak to anyone. My bad for not sending it back! That being said The Ring Side is a Portland tradition and almost always a great dining experience.More

My fried chicken, something Ringside crows about, was way overcooked and dried out. For the second time. No place better for steaks and onion rings, but a two time loser with their chicken. At these prices they really need to address that. The pieces were...totally unrecognizable, too.More

The food was meh. Nothing was great, and this used to be our favorite restaurant in Portland. The service was lovely, but we were seated at a table that was too small for our party and that was also disappointing. We scheduled our reservation a...few weeks in advance. If they’re going to charge $75 per steak, they’re going to have to up their food quality and offer more comfortable dining. We won’t be back unless things improve.More

Prior to covid's impact upon Portland we looked forward to our visits to the Ringside for special occasions such as Christmas, birthdays, and anniversaries as well as dinner after theater and concerts in the city. Prior to covid the dinners and service were excellent. This...evening 8/27/22 we ventured out to the Ringside to celebrate our anniversary. This turned out to be a mistake that we will not repeat in the future. With the exception of the onion rings the food was mediocre . Onion rings were excellent. Caesar sald hardly any flavor-dare you to find the dressing-croutons hard as rock with no flavor. Mushrooms lacked flavor and did not add anything to the steaks. Steaks were average (Filet Mignon Choice & Ribeye Prime.) Lobster mashed potatoes poor at best--Lumpy potatoes, spongy lobster pieces, and very little sauce --overall tasteless. Drinks--Before dinner Baileys cofee and Spanish coffee not blended well as all you could taste was the coffee. After Dinner Spanish coffee better blended yet cream on top was cold all the way down to the coffee. Service, however, was excellent. The Ringside prior to Covid would provide a review card with the bill. This time however, they did not and sad to say we had to take this medium in orde to let them and others know of their decline.More

I’ve always loved the Ringside since I turned 21 and snuck? sneaked? in among the gray hairs. We sat outside & had impeccable service. Louis was attentive & the other staff were happy to be there. The Crab Cocktail had way too much “mushed crab”...but the sauce was excellent. Steaks & Wedge salad were high quality. The crime brûlée. Yes. Crime. Bit on the thin side with ok flavor. Enjoyed outside-so much quieter. Not quite at the standards I expect. It’s an old-school place who continues on due to its reputation & Quality. I would hate to see it slip into mediocrity.More
