RingSide Steakhouse – Uptown
Excellent foodThe food was amazing along with our wine selection and the service was incredible. The members of the staff were very prompt and friendly and were willing to accommodate anything. When we needed warm water for a bottle, it was immediately brought to us, no questions asked. Will recommend to others.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner ExperienceDinner at the Ringside was very enjoyable as we celebrated our daughters birthday. The service and food was outstanding and they remembered her birthday and gave her any dessert she wanted. We go too the Ringsider for special occassion.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMService was exceptional. FoodService was exceptional. Food was fantastic. It was very busy being Mother's Day, but not reflected in the service given by William our waiter.
My mother is coming in from Nevada for my son's graduation and I will recommend she eat here.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in town!This is a special occasion place for us. The food and service are always top drawer. On this night I ordered the special: Cracked lobster, filet mignon w/black truffle oil and the usual sides. The best meal I've enjoyed for 2013. Having said that, each time we eat here is a memorable occasion. My wife ordered the two course special and was equally sated and happy. We're already looking forward to our next visit.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentOnce again the RingSide met our expectation. Great food, great service and great wine list. This night was a bit noisier that other nights but I'm assuming that had to do with prom night. Still all in all it was another great experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite restaurantI've been going there with my family for over 50 years. It never fails to impress. Excellent atmosphere and service and quality of food. Even though I have moved to another state, I still make it a point to make dinner reservations at the Ringside whenever I travel back to Oregon.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPrimo beef and onion rings,Primo beef and onion rings, what's not to like? Our waiter, Daniel R, was gracious and handled our wine corkage with courtesy and humor. We had a great evening with family and friends.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic DiningIf you have not visited the Ringside recently (or at least since the remodel), make a reservation for dinner or stop by the bar for a classic cocktail. After nibbling on an order of onion rings, you can enjoy one of the famous steaks. In our case, the halibut was back on the menu and was delicious with an Asian spin on the presentation. I must say that the service was outstanding! Our server made the evening special with a great sense of humor and just the right amount of attention.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaks, bad chicken liversSteaks were great, my husband and our guests said might be the best they ever had. The asparagus side was perfectly cooked. The chicken livers however were overcooked, hard and dry, I should have had the steak.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentCouldn't have asked for a better dinner, waiter, or atmosphere. Loved it from start to finish!
OMG...the lobster mash was to die for...everything was fantastic.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a treat!Ringside is the place we always count on for the best steak in town. It comes to your table sizzling hot and has never fallen short. The atmosphere is luxurious; dark wood and brick. The way a steakhouse should be. Our special occasions are always spent at Ringside.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA part of PortlandRingside has always been a favorite of my wife and I. We typically visit for special occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries It is a great happy hour stop if your in the area during the week. Food and Service is always the best.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNEED BETTER SALAD DRESSING.I do NOT like your salad dressing and neither does my wife. I can't believe a restaurant as good as yours does not have roqufort or blue cheese dressing with the wedge salad!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMReturn to The RingsideWe returned to The Ringside after a 30 year hiatus. It has added on and gotten even better. Our waiter, Les, was perfect. He was there when we needed him and not there when we were deep in conversation. We were catching up with friends we had not seen in 25 years, lots to talk about. However, we still managed a large order of the world's best onion rings, fabulous steaks, fish and Oregon Pinot Noir selected by Les. Oh, and let's not forget the creme brulee!! The price was not low but, 30 years later I can now afford to splurge on this Portland landmark. Although I live near Seattle, I'll be back, perhaps in 30 days instead of 30 years.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous birthday celebrationFabulous birthday celebration with our family and outstanding waitress.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMRingSide Makes It SpecialRingSide was everything it's famous for. The food was superb. The steak and the prime rib were tender and juicy. And yes, James Beard was right - the onion rings are the best in the world. The waiter (Daniel) was extremely knowledgeable, explaining the various cuts of meat and their properties. He was very professional and very personable; he made us feel welcome and comfortable, as did all of the staff. The newly opened "barrel room" is a great place to eat. We went there for my birthday dinner. I'd love to go back anytime - RingSide makes it a special occasion.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a reliable great experienceAlways a reliable great experience if you love good meat prepared perfectly.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMRoom in back is very loud,Room in back is very loud, hard to hold conversation. Acoustics need work.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMScott was our waiter and heScott was our waiter and he was exceptional. He was very knowledgeable about both the food and the extensive wine list. When the wine we were interested in turned out to be a bit on the young side, he found us a real gem; an Italian wine that was a real bargain, very similar in style to the one we first considered, and a great accompaniment to our meal (oh and did I mention that it tasted great). The steaks were exceptional, especially their Kobe beef filet, and the onion rings were equally delicious.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved the RingSide onceWe loved the RingSide once again-it never fails us.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI have enjoyed this RingsideI have enjoyed this Ringside periodically for over 40 years.

We will be back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHouse of Red Meat!The food at Ringside ranks far above any other steak house I've dined. The space is fairly cramped, and as a result tables are very close to each other. The service people are phenomenal. It's always a special evening when dining at the Ringside.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the Best Steakhouses in US!One of the best, if not the best Steakhouse in the U.S. I love the tuxedo dressed waiters, Lobster Soup, Warm Rolls.....their AWESOME Bone-In Rib Eye Steak and their Pear and Apple Crisp.

I had a little sticker shock after purchasing a la carte sides and dessert. We ordered onion rings at the suggestion of our server and got a huge plate full which we did not eat. Another server at a different table talked about sizes of orders, so I think we were given a very large size. Our server Nancy was very knowledgeable and nice.
