Diner Reviews
  • "On my second visit I ordered the "prime" ribeye. It was completely flavorless except for the butterfat topping. It almost tasted like boiled meat soaked in butter. Unfortunately by the time that I could flag down our server my companions had devoured their steaks. Although they graciously deducted my meal from the bill I doubt that I will return. "

  • "This was my first time in the Uptown location as I had been to the Eastside location a number of times. The menu here features more seafood which, for me, is a plus. My 2 guests had the prime ribs and they were wonderful: juice, tender, etc. When they had ordered these in the other location, the meat was not as "brimming" with juices as their pieces here. There was a delay in getting our mushroom sides, so they winded up being on the house. This is always a sign of good quality service since human mistakes happen. This will now become my go-to place for steaks whenever I visit Portland. "

  • "We go to RingSide Uptown every year for my dad's birthday, and year after year the meal, wine and service are impeccable. They even took our payment information over the phone in advance so my dad wouldn't be able to pay (he tried, and the waiter took his card to pretend to charge it - it was quite the surprise when he returned with the bill for my brother to sign - and a big hit with my dad). We will be back again next year!"

  • "This was our "special" day and we decided we would go to our old "special", a place we went to when we were first married. Remembering how good the food was then, we made our plans.. We had a wonderful order of onion rings, then a very nice glass of wine.. we split the salad, remembering how big it was and we were very happy we did as it was so good and we still had plenty.. When they brought our steaks, and baked potato we wished we had told them to split the potato! It was HUGE!! But done just right We both had the fillet mignon, my wife a 4 oz. and myself a 6 oz. It doesn't sound like lots, but we each took some home! And it was so tender and the flavor was awesome..Our waitress, Molly, was friendly, personal and very helpful.."

  • "Overpriced and average pretty much says it. It does not live up to it's reputation. Out of prime rib before 8. $60 for a bone in ribeye that was excellent but no better or different than any $45 ribeye. Overall, it was a let down. I wouldnt recommend it nor would I return."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Expected a lot more from this place I'd read about and heard about for years. Not enough wait or support staff to handle the amount of tables they try to handle. Steak was ok but not what you'd expect for $50. Wouldn't go back again."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Steak at ringside is alway great and their onion rings are to die for. The only downside was our waiter who was impatient with us when we asked questions and didn't do anything to hide his annoyans."

  • "We came here to celebrate my husband's promotion, as well as our son and his wife with his first job after graduating from college. The food and service were spot on! We will definitely be back!"

  • "The service was only outdone by the quality of the food. Everything exceeded our expectations. The Lobster Mashed potatoes were to die for. I highly recommend the Ringside to all who want great food."

  • "We always enjoy coming to the Ringside when we come to Portland for special events. It has never disappointed us. I really appreciated the phone call from the Ringside the day of our visit to confirm our reservation and special request. I requested that they have the lobster mashed potatoes as a side and they had them for us."

  • "Life keeps me busy, even though my 3 kids are grown now I find myself still rearrainging my schedule to assist last minute request for help. Grandma never says no seem to be my mantra. I have read reviews and about the numerous awards that the Ringside has racked up over the past several years. I drive by the restuarant at least once a week and announce to myself or whoever is in the car with me that "I will have dinner there and enjoy a steak from Ringside!" As if I was announcing my bucket list to the world. Last Saturday night I check off dinner at Ringside. By far the best meal I have ever eaten! The Ribeye and the Prime Rib were tender and prepared exactly how it was ordered. Our waiter Steven made the evening more than I hoped for."

  • "My sister and I were both celebrating 40 years of marriage to our wonderful husbands and the Ringside was the perfect choice for the celebration dinner. We were pampered all the way and the food was delectable. Our husbands agreed (as they have learned to do after 40 years:)"

  • "We went for Portland Dining month of 3 courses for $29. The food was excellent. The server was in attentive. He never looked our way or asked us if there was anything we wanted. It took 1 hour and 15 minutes for our entree to show up. The place was not packed. Nobody was waiting by the hostess stand. If this had been our first time at Ringside we would never go back. However last year, for the same deal, we had an excellent, enthusiastic server. She even brought us free samples of onion rings while we waited, and the wait was not as long. i won't talk anybody out of going there, but it will not be a prime spot for us."

  • "A Portland institution , the Ringside Steakhouse is always a pleasant evening out. Starting with the valet parking that allows Portlanders to dodge the raindrops the service is unbeatable. The hostess greets the guests with a smile and an offer to take your wraps. Our server was pleasant, helpful and attentive. The drinks from the bar were supurb. The dishes were nicely presented and generous. Always leftovers! The steaks were cooked to perfection. The burnt creme, decadent as it may be, is a tradition!"

  • "We have had consistently excellent experiences at Ringside over the years. Ringside routinely tops other steak houses whose prices are even more expensive. This time we had an exceptional server, Scott, who was personable, humorous, informed, and responsive. Scott took great care of us and made the meal a fun, yet sophisticated, event. The cocktails were superb - best martini in a long time. Overall the food was great, including prawn cocktail, onion ring, and salads. The steaks received mixed reviews from our group - which is an anomaly for this restaurant. The filets were slightly overdone and not quite as flavorful as usual. Regardless, given our previous experiences, the great cocktails, and server Scott, we will be back."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The Ringside remains a special place all Portlanders should consider visiting often. Given the plethora of choices we settled on filets so tender we felt like they melting in our mouths! We took our cousin there for her first grown up meal in Pirtland and also because she requested a great steak. Ringside did not dissappoint."
