RingSide Fish House - Fox Tower
Birthday celebration - delightful!Delighted in the fresh wild Alaskan salmon cooked to perfection. Service was fantastic even with a packed dining room.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWell-prepared food, very attentiveWell-prepared food, very attentive service, nice atmosphere.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey, but worth it!On the regular menu, salmon and halibut range between $35-40. Ringside is the "steakhouse" for seafood: Simple, straightforward preparation without a lot of fuss that demands impeccably fresh fish. Ringside provides it. A salad of red and golden beets was wonderful, and desserts including creme brulee and a variation on the theme of chocolate mousse were satisfying but not over-indulgent. Friendly, professional service. The view over Director's Park, especially at night, is delightful with the ever-changing light show from the park's canopy.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBesides always excellent steak,Besides always excellent steak, the fish was outstanding and fresh!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Halibut & CalamariAwesome halibut. Waiter was very helpful in navigating the menu. Table by window on rare sunny day became a little uncomfortable.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWorking hard to be upscaleExcellent service. The employees work very hard to make the restaurant a special place for diners (although the plates were put in front of the wrong people). Very good food, but not spectacular. Prices are in range for what they are trying to be. The layout of the restaurant, and location work against the ambiance. It would have been better if it were higher in the building...the view out the window is the back of a sign. The letters in FOX TOWER have holes in the back. I'll go back.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!It doesn't get any better than Ringside for fresh seafood. Expensive, but worth every cent ...5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything excellent! TheEverything excellent! The restaurant was a bit hard to find so we didn't have much time before we had to leave, but the staff was exceptional and got us served and done in record time!

We both had drinks to start, my wife had 2 lemon drops and I an Absolut on the rocks (nice, generous pour). We split the Crabcake appetizer (very fresh), and my wife had a knife & fork Ceasar Salad which had the freshest Parmesan on top! For our entrees, she had a herb & Dijon encrusted swordfish (it's actually Rockfish on the current menu) and I the Cedar Plank Salmon - what a wonderful meal!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOysters were excellent!It was pretty good, nice place.

It is, however, somewhat pricy.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good as it hasFood was very good as it has been before.
We had a new server...his inexperienced showed (took 10 minutes to bring out the last salad for a party of 4 despite saying it would be right out/he asked if we'd been there before and when responded "yes" he still gave us a 5 minute oration on the restaurant and its menu, sustainability practices...wonder how long he would have talked if said "no")
Also, were seated under a speaker...the music was VERY loud at times lat our table due to this. We were told it could not be turned down so we endured through it instead of moving after we had already started our meal. Our conversations were definitely affected depending on the song being played.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to this location becauseWent to this location because I received a gift card.I am so glad I tried the Ringside FishHouse - it was a lovely meal.
