  • "It is a little spendy. Our waitress said they will be remodeling in January and be more like a grill. The bar's happy hour has the best pizza I've ever tasted. The staff is very friendly and accommodating."

  • " The birthday lunch was a big disappointment. The turkey cobb salad was just okay. The lettuce was soggy. The waiter ( Chris) seemed bored & indifferent. They gave us free onion rings because I made the reservations on line.I also got a 15% reduction on the bill again e -resers. could not use that, because we got the onion rings. The reviews indicated that others used both freebies at the same meal for e-resers. No bread was given with the 2 cobb salads? The table was plain with2 little plates and flatware wrapped in a napkin, pushed off to the corner of the table... maybe for the onion rings?certainly not bread.there was no bread.Chris told me I could use the 15%off next time. No, never again. not a special B lunch at all. disappointing."

  • "The ringside (East and West) used to be "the" place to go for a steak.... But honestly, it needs some serious updating in decor and menu. I had the nightly special... a couple of filet mignon medallions (4 oz), "crispy potatoes" (new potatoes, fried) and garlic sauteed spinach (tasted very musty, not fresh).. it was sadly very boring... my husband had the 6 oz filet (only $5 more than the special and clearly a better choice). To be fair, the filets were beautiful, mine was a perfect medium rare, my husband's 6 oz was more rare than medium rare, but still tasty. The greeting staff are pleasant and helpful. Our waiter was a bit over the top with way too many "my friend's" in his over solicious service. Just needs a serious all over update!"

  • "We've been to the Ringside Eastside many times over the years, for special occaisions. Our trip this time was no exception to the tremendous, courteous service we expected. Frank, our waiter, is one of the finest in the business. The only thing that detracted from our experience was that my rib-eye steak was quite tough and chewy. I probably should have sent it back, but that would have spoiled to mood of the moment. However, the rest of my meal, and my wife's meal, were excellent! We will return."

  • "Food was excellent, as always. Surf and turf was perfect, as was the husband's steak. But what impressed us both the most was an incredible improvement in service. Servers were attentive without being obtrusive, and every course was timed to perfection. Ambiance with the fire and dimmed lighting is perfect for a romantic evening."

  • "Went to celebrate a Job change for my wife. Always had excellent meals and excellent service in the past. Our meal was very good, but service from waitress only fair. Hate to rate a place that I have always enjoyed over the years that low. She didn't appear often and one example was that she asked if we wanted bread and we said yes. Our salad arrived and still no bread and we had to ask other staff to help. If not for the two support staff who did note us looking around for her, I would have asked for the manager. Those two young men became very attentive to us and saved the night. She was pleasant, but wasn't around much (maybe to many tables to service). At dessert time she came by and did a nice job with the final part of the meal."

  • "I think it's the best restaurant in East Portland. We often come here for special occasions. The atmosphere is casual elegance and very relaxing. I always enjoy every morsel!"

  • "Our special dining experience was not up to standard this evening. Fillets were dry and no flavor. Our guests had prime rib that was fatty and hard to cut. Poor presentation and extreme price for quality and quantity."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "I've dined at Ringside - Eastside many times over the years. The experience was always a pleasure -- until this recent visit. The onion rings weren't the wonderful rings I've always enjoyed previously (not awful, just not wonderful) and the waitress didn't inquire beforehand which dip I'd prefer (I like mine with ranch dressing). The prime rib was anything but tender, and certainly not the prime grade I've come to expect from this restaurant."

  • "The restaurant had good service, and the food was good but very pricey for what it was. I travel for business every week and dine with clients quite a bit. I find this restaurant has Longhorn type food with Ruth Chris pricing. When we arrived at our table, my bread plate was noticeably filthy, but the server was happy to replace it with a clean one. Our server had a great personality, and was very helpful. I would probably look further for client dining options if I were looking to impress but for a quick meal the restaurant was ok but, once again, a little pricey for what it is."

  • "The food was cooked to perfection, but for the price there should have been a few vegetables on the plate There was no presentation. My wife ordered lobster tail and there was nothing else on the plate. ( no presentation ) . My wife ordered asparagus, which should have been put on the plate with the lobster .It was in a separate dish."

  • "I was looking forward to this steakhouse, as I have heard about it for years. Red leather, dark walls and lots of meat. The leather and dark walls is what I expected, the food was not. The steak was far more expensive that it should have been and had far less taste than it should have. The waiter only wanted to help us on his schedule (slow) and when we tried to speed things up, he was flustered. Go here only if you want to see an old schools steakhouse, but pay current "trendy" steakhouse prices. One and done."

  • "Went for late dinner with my husband and 10 year old son. Bob our server was fantastic, he made my son feel welcome and eased his nervousness about being in a fine dining restaurant. Within minutes of sitting down Bob had two plates of onion rings brought out which made the boys night. I had the peppered NY strip and it was amazing, my husband had the bone in steak and it took all his will power to not pick up the bone and chew on it when he was done, my son had the steak bites off the kids menu and he said it was the best steak he'd ever had. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a good steak!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "It is always so comfortable to have a meal there and the beef is as good as it gets. The steaks are always cooked as requested and the garlic mashed potatoes are a favoite of mine. My wife always has the special prime rib which is perfect. It is the best of Portland and does not compare to other steak houses, in our humble opinion."

  • "We have always enjoyed the food, the staff the quietness and the ambience. The ringside will be our place to celebrate all our special occasions."

  • "Here is my feedback for our dinner on Saturday. 1. The steaks were quite good, but not amazing. I would expect more along the lines of amazing for the prices you charge. I can only say I've had better for less cost. Maybe putting a little butter or seasoning on the steak would help it approach amazing. 2. The server asked me if I wanted change (I paid in cash). I hate it when they do this - it presumes that they think all the change is for them. It is a major annoyance for me. I did want change, and he misunderstood, and he kept it all."

  • "Our very nice anniversary dinner came with some pleasant gifts: free onion rings for reserving online, 15% off entire food portion of bill, and a free dessert of our choice (yummy bananas foster). Since some restaurants don't even acknowledge special occasions, this VIP treatment was greatly appreciated. Good food and pleasant service, one can see why Ringside has been around a long time."

  • "Ringside is a very good steak house. High quality beef done perfectly to order. We also had the calamari and it was cooked perfectly. The waitstaff, although not very warm, was very good. It was nice to be in a restaurant with a staff the knows which side to place and which side to clear. That seems to be uncommon in the Portland dining scene. If you like onion rings, this is the place to eat them...."

  • "I took my husband, his mom, and his sister for a "surprise" birthday dinner. It was a 5-star evening all around. We were greeted cordially as soon as we walked through the door and shown to our table a few minutes later. because I had made our reservations on-line we were treated to some really good onion rings. Our waitress, Michelle, was very attentive throughout our meal, she made the event even more special with her humor and good nature. We all ordered the tenderloin and, to a person, enjoyed every bite -- it was very tender and cooked to perfection. Because it was Dan's birthday he was offered the dessert of his choice. Crime Brûlée was the choice and it was also very good. We've decided Ringside will be our Go-to restaurant."

  • "The food here is amazing. Steaks are perfect and melt in your mouth. The onion rings are superb as an appetizer, and I can't say enough good things about the lemon cheesecake dessert (huge portion!)! Service from our server sadly didn't match the food though, as he was less than stellar."

  • "Steak and prime rib were excellent--they remain some of the best in the city. French silk pie was very heavy and rich and we had been expecting something light (chocolate mousse). Our server was very pleasant but the service was very slow. My wine was delivered when we were finished eating and we were tempted to ask for our dessert to go because it took so long to receive it."

Wine list was a little pricey, but it did contain some good values. We can not wait to go back. The prices were very reasonable for what we got and represent an excellent value."
