This was the ideal place to entertain out-of-town friends. Great food, very attentive and accommodating staff, lovely ambience with noise level low enough for our hearing-challenged ears to converse easily.

I brought some friends from out of town in for dinner, we had an amazing experience at RingSide Fish House. From the moment we walked in we were treated like old friends. The host staff was very welcoming and professional. And well dressed, I appreciate that. Our server, Nick did a wonderful job. He was very knowledgeable about the menu, very helpful with wine choices, and very handsome. It's apparent that the staff here works well as a team, four staff members brought out our entrees, very impressive. This way we could all eat together and not be uncomfortable waiting for the rest of the food to come. The food was amazing. We had a salmon collar, octopus, and a whole, fried Oregon perch, to name a few of our choices. We could tell a lot of thought and care went into our dining experience. Thank you Ringside Fishhouse for a great time and great food.

I expected better quality of steaks (prime rib and special bone-in ribeye) given the prices. The salad was soaked in vinegar.

The food was divine & the service impeccable. Arrive early & have a classic American cocktail in the lounge (or you can eat there too). Out of the three entrees, Spouse had the steak and it was so flavorful & tender, our friend & I almost regretted getting the salmon & sea scallops, respectively. *Almost*. Will return to Ringside when we are next in PDX.

My husband and I have dined at Ringside Fish House twice in the last years to take advantage of their Pre-Theater menu. It is a prix fixe, three course menu that has not disappointed, both in value and quality. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The attire is “Northwest Cool”. Oh, and parking is paid at Fox Tower!

A great American classic restaurant .
Great location
Great Food
Great service
Great w....
what happened to the fantastic wine list you had ?????
It’s all mixed up on the card ...
and I , personally don’t won’t to think about Oregon Pinot noir ...
Yes it’s personal , not an offense . But , for me ,
It’s like loosing 50% of the attraction of the restaurant .

So , please , put your little bottles in a row .
Get a wine list easy to read by a French dude like me ...and see you soon ...

By the way , I want to thank you for the cold butter and salt . That was really appreciated .

Went last night for the first time for our 21st wedding anniversary. Started at the bar while we waited for our reservation time, drinks are strong and the happy hour menu is fantastic with good prices. The service was outstanding in the bar and restaurant as well as the food. Will definitely be back again soon, thanks for making it a great evening. Side note, the steak bites and mussels for happy hour are great, the calamari was ok tender but not much taste. For dinner the halibut and whole perch was perfect as well as the oysters on the half shell.

Despite plenty of top competition, Ringside Fish House stands out as my favorite Portland restaurant for top notch seafood. Ambiance, food presentation and flavors, and stellar service all in a very convenient location contribute to a great dining experience. I've had dinner there several times, but recently my wife and I celebrated our Wedding Anniversary. Shannon, our server, our sommelier, and the entire staff at Ringside Fish House made a wonderful evening truly memorable, and my wife and I feel truly special. Bravo Ringside!

My husband’s cioppino was the best he’s ever eaten.
My salmon tail was undercooked, returned for additional cooking, brought back to the table. It was so decimated after the server removed the fin that it really was inedible.
The service was lovely, ambiance nice though.
