Great food and amazing service! It was the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion!
Good when you have a business meeting and are on expense account.
Cousin's 60th birthday. Local pubs are "high dining" to her so spending an evening in a great restaurant with wonderful food and a super staff was a special treat for her.
I expected better quality of steaks (prime rib and special bone-in ribeye) given the prices. The salad was soaked in vinegar.
The Ciopino which my wife ordered was outstanding. I had the filet which was also very good. Good wine selection. Comfortable and relaxed.
Lovely evening. Thank you. Wait staff was excellent.
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!
I love Fish House .
A great American classic restaurant .
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 .
The meal was great from start to finish, and best of all was the service!
We were in Portland for our 50th anniversary and chose favorite restaurants from when we lived there. Ringside Fish House beat them all -- even Jake's!
Great food, nice atmosphere, wait staff was courteous and pleasant
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.
This is the kind of restaurant that my out-of-town business guests like, but it is not my kind of restaurant. That said, the food was very good, the service was friendly and professional, it is a little expensive.
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!
We had a good time because we were old friends. My comments would be that the server was slow, bar service was slow, and some fish was undercooked.
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.
God food and good people
The crab legs were wonderful and great service. My only complaint is that my friend ordered a steak but couldn’t get a baked potato which I believe pairs great with a steak
Just a wonderful Sunday evening dinner, and half price wine is very nice!
Our dinner was delicious. It was a special 3 course meal plus we ordered the famous onion rings of course. I love the Ringside.
Steak was way over cooked. Service was good. Overall didn’t feel like good value.
We had a lovely evening celebrating my husband's birthday. Our waiter was attentive and the support staff were very thoughtful.
The bar was very loud (wood floors, couple of loud groups). Restaurant was fantastic as always. Great atmosphere and excellent service.
I’m a regular at the Ringside Fishhouse. The selection and quality is top notch. I much prefer food and ambiance to Jakes (which has become a touristy chain restaurant). Last night I had the fresh salmon with albacore ceviche. It was amazing. Very exceptional-wine list and sommelier. My husband had Chrissi bowl (did I mention the have fresh raw bar?).
The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. Thank you.
Meal was excellent and the seafood was top notch. Grand Seafood Platter was fantastic, Copper River Salmon and Cioppino we simply amazing. Great spot for business meal or special occasions.
Both downtown Ringside locations have upped their game. The menu is more focused and innovative for a traditional steak and seafood place. Everything the two of us ordered at the Fish House was great and servers were attentive, knowledgeable, and eager to advise on food and beverage options.
This is an extremely pretentious place with good but not great food. Everything was superrrrrrr salty and unbalanced.
Dining with out of town family. Had a lovely dining experience.
We went here before seeing a play at the Keller, we totally enjoyed our meal the food was prepared perfectly, service was great! We really enjoyed ourselves.
Not their best effort. My wife and I split a salmon. She likes hers well done and I can go rare. When it arrived it merely poached, she couldn't even look at it and I tried it and it was far too rare for even me. They offered to make another one properly, but our appetites were ruined by then. Later that evening, the pain reoccurred! Service was absent during the delivery and check in, so the response they made took a while. Although they comped the entree, and were very nice about it, it still was a not a good situation.
Excellant fish very well prepared and parred with the pasta/veges/ spices etc to create a real treat for your tastebuds if you are in to fish.
Cioppino to die for. Lobster that's not overcooked. Attentive staff. Accommodating to gluten-free diets.
We have been to RingSide Fish House on numerous occasions and it never disappoints. The food is presented beautifully. They have seasonal specials and are helpful with specific dietary needs. It is close to theater and in the heart of the city.
Fish House is a classic restaurant ....
It’s a real restaurant , compared to the multitude of wannabe restaurants in town .
Great food , great wine and great service .
On Sundays you pay half price for a bottle of wine .
Who in town has the guts to do that ?!??,
Thank you so much .
Amazing food and service! Loved the Mother’s Day specials.
GreAt food and such personable staff!
RingSide Fish House is consistently excellent. The menu is always full of tempting dishes that are creatively designed. Everything I've ever had there has been outstanding.
Service is very good with wait staff that is very well informed about food and drinks.
It is always a pleasure to eat here
The staff is excellent but the food that night was medium nothing compared to your steakhouse which we haven’t had a bad meal there ever and have been going there for years. Probably won’t be back for a while.
Most of the food was great, room is nice Big problem though - I specifically told the waiter that I was pescatarian, and he allowed me to order a dish that had chorizo in it. As I started eating it, I noticed and had to call him over. He admitted it was chorizo and apologized. Unfortunately, that is an inexcusable mistake. It could be deadly for the wrong person.
