Ringside Steak House is so my favorite restaurant. l have been in with groups from 2 to 12 and every time the entire staff is extremely helpful from the valet who parks your car to the bussing staff that clears your plate almost as soon as they are empty. I personally love to get the bone in rib steak (which is bigger than I can eat in 1 meal, so I make eggs out of it the next morning and it's still tender and flavorful) and the lobster mash potatoes. With every bite i'm saying YUM!
LOVE,LOVE,LOVE this restaurant, it is a true gem.

amazing service, lighting, ambiance and valet parking.
Downside is the food was pretty good but not the AMAZING you expect for when you pay high dining prices. Some items where very good but the main thing we went there for was steak. My steak came unevenly cooked and a little under seasoned. Some other items where also rather good but not quite great.

I will absolutely go again because over all the experience as a whole was worth the lower then expected quality of cook on my food.

For more than fifty years, The Ringside has been Portland's foremost steak house. I was awestruck as a teenage prom dater; I was thrilled by the reactions from out-of-town dining guests as an adult, and, again Sunday night, I was treated to the finest filet mignon in Oregon, even more perfect than that first taste in 1964. Perhaps it was my intoxicating dining companion, but, I believe that I had the finest meal of my life, perfect from linen placement to menu guidance to dessert selections, every aspect was impeccable. Six out of five stars!!

Filet medallions were quite nice. Veggies with the sauce unremarkable, where those mushrooms from a can? Hard to go wrong with a baked potato, but not sure if those were bacon bits served along side or something else that could not be identified. Disappointed that the onion ring sauces were the house salad dressing and just plain old catsup. Guess we weren't really disappointed until after we ate some of the onion rings then our wedge salad was served.... with the same house salad dressing as was served with the onion rings. Most likely that is how steak houses worked way back when they were the rage. Nowadays a bit of a disappointment when it comes to expecting a variation of flavors.

Christopher answered the phone when I called to push back our reservation by 30 minutes. His tone was awful...he sounded put out, the voice was flat affect, he had an attitude of "maybe we can help you, but maybe not." He really made a bad impression...and I know how important that moment of customer contact is. It was our wedding anniversary, and I asked if there was anything special that Ringside did for such an occasion. He thought there might be a complimentary dessert, but didn't know what it might be.

We dine at Ringside several times a year! Mary always knows what we order (bone-in rib eye with lobster mashed potatoes) and is always on the ball as far as food and drinks! Meals at Ringside can’t be beat! And having Mary take care of you is a must! The Valet crew knows us too and take great care of our cars... they are a very nice group of guys!

There are a great many fantastic meat-centric restaurants in PDX, but there is a very good reason Ringside is THE steakhouse institution in Portland. No one does it better. It's a very traditional, high-end steakhouse with all the fixins: excellent staff, excellent food, and an excellent wine list. We love coming here and hope it continues as a Portland institution for many years to come!

I’ve been a loyal Ringside patron for twenty years not because they have the best steaks (they don’t) but because the ambiance, service, and rest of the menu compensate to keep it near the top of my list. On this occasion, the waiter was an faint echo of past waiter excellence I grew to expect.

It was my wife’s birthday and I asked for a comfortable, romantic table. That is exactly what we got. Though Ringside is expensive, it is also very special. The food is superb. Service is the same. The onion rings are out of this world! We both had Prime Ribeye steak with baked potato. Additionally my wife had an Oscar treatment on her steak and I added some fried shrimp. Our biggest problem is that we could not finish all the food but that gave us a wonderful “left over” meal the following night!

Do not hesitate to have your next special date here. You will not regret it!
