RingSide Fish House - Fox Tower Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I celebrated our love a week after Valentine's Day. Ringside Fish was perfect for dinner! Food beautifully cooked and artfully served. The crab salad we shared was unique and delicious. My scallops were so tender with risotto adding to the richness. We had a lovely time; with wait staff that were close by but no hovering. A lovely evening all around. Thanks Ringside.
My husband and I dined in the bar on our first date and have come back for every anniversary since. It was only fitting, therefore, that we should celebrate our wedding night enjoying dinner at the place where we went on that first date. The food was spectacular. But the service and care from our server Santi, and the rest of the staff was absolutely superb. Sophisticated, elegant, and just tasty to the last bite! Thank you for making our special day just that more memorable.
Loved the hostess’s facial reaction( froze) as we approached and asked if we can get in even though we had no reservations (we did have them of course). The servers were extremely friendly and courteous. The food was great. Overall we were pleased to spend our Valentine’s dinner at the Ringside Fish House. We’ll be back.
We had an amazing Valentine's Day date here, it really succeeded at making the evening special. I looked around and saw multiple other couples clearly experiencing the same magic. Then the food came and we gorged ourselves on delicious sea food until we were stuffed (we ate The Grand Ringsider)!
Ed was an amazing waiter, we told the manager to give him a raise.
The evening started off great. Checked our coats, beautiful table. Ordered drinks. Took awhile for drinks. Ordered appetizers and asked for bread since by then we were starving. Had to ask twice more for bread. First red flag. Appetizers and salads were good. Ordered dinner. The dishes tasted ok but lacked basic elements like our king salmon needed an acid to brighten. The sturgeon was dry. Still we were there for a birthday and wanted to have a good time. Toward the end of the meal our waiter Edward. was scarce. We didn’t see our take home box delivered and when we asked a bus person to ask him he came flying in and was very snippy getting a bag from the floor (who puts food on the floor) and says “what else do you need boxed up. We didn’t see him bring the bag so it was an honest mistake. We saw him chatting with another server so I guess he was too busy to bring the evening to a close properly. We spent a lot of money on the evening and just didn’t think the overall meal and service matched the prices. I could overlook the meal but not the snippiness of the waiter. This is your job. I gave him a full 20% tip but don’t don’t think he earned it. I didn’t want to stiff the bus people who were great. Please use this to improve.
We came for our 9 year anniversary and it was the perfect place to be! They acknowledged our special occasion and had a card signed by staff and our server, Miguel.
I had the filet with mashed potatoes and a bowl of the roasted cauliflower soup. Every bite of everything was delicious! Husband had the seafood platter with lobster tail, king crab legs, shrimp, mussels, clams and smoked salmon...he devoured it!
Thank you for a night to remember! We will be back soon.
The staff was very attentive. We were greeted and since we were early we elected to go to the bar for a drink first. An attendant came and got us when our table was ready and escorted us to the dining area. The crab bisque soup was very tasty, as was the mixed green salad. My entree, which was the surf and turf had a nice flavor however the temperature was lukewarm at best. I ordered a decaf coffee to have with my desert, but after several minutes when it hadn't arrived I was finally able to get the attention of my waiter who informed me that the coffee had to be brewed. By the time it arrived I had finished by desert. I was surprised that #1 the waiter did not inform me that there would be a delay, and #2 that they didn't comp me my $3.50 cup of coffee. Overall the Ringside Fish House is a nice place, but for the price I would have expected a piping hot entree, and my coffee delivered promptly or not charged since it was so late. Therefore I can only give this place 3 stars.
The Dungeness crab cakes were excellent as usual. The marlin dinner was very good. The steelhead was good. You may not believe it if you haven't had them before but the warm cinnamon sugar doughnuts with dipping sauce is excellent.
The service was also very good.
We were a party of four and were seated promptly at our reservation time. Given the reputation of Ringside and the price point, I would expect a way above average experience. Our food was served warm, not hot, and to the plate, the food was good, but not of a calibre worthy of the price. The high point of our dining experience was the professional, excellent experience provided by our server.
The night was great from the start. The hostess was great and took our coats for us. We sat in the bar for happy hour until our table was ready. The server in the bar knew we were waiting for a table without us telling him and the bar was very busy. The dining room is very nice with a great view of the outside. The waiter was great and they were very on top of everything. The food was amazing. I had the monkfish which was incredible. They brought my husband a desert for his birthday and it was probably one of the best deserts we have had. It truly was a great experience and we will be back the next time we are in town.
