    I’ve been coming to the Ringside for 40 years. Sadly, the food isn’t great. There are better steaks available in town. The lobster mashed potatoes were like wax, the lobster dry and flavorless. We’ve had these elsewhere where they were light and the lobster was deliciously sweet, so we know what they could be. The crab cakes could have had canned crab or, frankly, no crab in them at all. With 6 people we didn’t finish them. They were gluey and just not good. This is probably the biggest food tragedy of the evening given where we live…. Local crab is in season and should 90% of the content. The fried chicken was almost too salty to eat. The spinach was awesome, the mushrooms great, onion rings reliable as always, baked potato done well. How one of the oldest steak houses in the City has a hard time procuring quality meat is a mystery. This is very similar to the review I gave almost 3 years ago. This dinner, at the Ringside, is a family tradition. We go there for this reason; the nostalgia, the service. The bar. The memories. I just wish the food was better.

    The Ringside Steakhouse has always been my family's favorite restaurant in Portland for the past 50 years. This is the first time that I was disappointed with the menu. It was very limited. In the past I would order a prime rib dinner which included a choice of salad and a side dish. That was not an option this time unless you ordered al a carte. Although the onion rings and the creme brullee were delicious, the prime rib was not as good as it used to be, especially considering the prices you charge for an entree, a salad and a side dish. For these reasons, it is unlikely that I will come back to the Ringside Steakhouse. I will continue to check your online menu to see if there are any changes.

    We always go to the Ringside for special occasion celebrations. Our waiter, James, provided excellent service. The Ribeye steak for two was delicious as well as our side dishes. Food presentation was impeccably done. My birthday celebration dinner was made even more special with the atmosphere, wonderful food, impeccable service and attention from James .

    The food and service was great at the Ringside. My wife had the filet and I the prime rib Filet was nice but on the dry side. Prime rib was the 16 ounce ,great flavor but a little under done. The au jus was disappointingly served at room temp as I was looking for a warm refill of the sauce to finish the steak. We will return soon. Thanks

    The service was exceptional. The food was great. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was that our NY steak (which we shared) was over-done. Asked for med/rare...got medium. Not a big deal. We'll be back!

Worlds best onion rings! Scott is a rockstar waiter! He had my wife’s and my drinks at the table the minute we sat down! He had planned dessert with birthday candles included! We will be coming back FOREVER!!!

    Need more choices of sizes - not 16 oz rib eye. Better wine prices. Onion rings a must. Tables much too close and noisy diners. Beautiful decor, just too many tables/people.

    My fiancee' and I frequently use our "date night" to visit the Bar and have a nice evening. We love the interaction at the bar and the friendly joust with the bar tenders and servers. Everyone always seems to be in a festive mood. The server remembers our favorite libation better than we do, and is always on top of our needs. And the food is top rated. Everything is perfect, from the oysters in the half shell to the sinful lobster potato side. It is cruel to invite a dessert order, but we rarely miss that opportunity!

    Welp, probably our last time! We’ve enjoyed a dinner there each year for several years. Prices are out of this world. We do enjoy our 15% anniversary discount. When offered a complimentary crème brûlée for our anniversary, we asked instead for small dish if ice crème with chocolate. We got a SMALL dish of icy crappy vanilla something…not creamy ice cream…with terrible tasting runny chocolate. And then, a $5.00 charge for it? Seriously…Ringside you can do better than that and at least match the quality of your steak! Should have been no charge, IMHO. Steaks knives were dull…mentioned it to the roving manager (his constant roving was very weird and uncomfortable - we even asked what his job was) and he said they only lasted so long and they would just throw away and get new. Not Mr. Personality for a high end restaurant with such an impeccable reputation. We were getting close to being done the first time he stopped and asked how ever was; he did offer to get different, but it was a little late. Worst is….we are seniors with disabilities…got there early to get a disabled parking space with the lines so we could open our doors all the way. One of the valets was very disrespectful, tried to convince us to give up that spot. Well my husband cannot stand well, and waiting in line for them to get the car and bring it to us after dinner is difficult. No place to sit outside while we wait. So we stayed and they had the audacity to block our doors so we could not get in, telling us their private property overrides the federal disable parking laws. We’ve parked in that same place many times and never been treated like that. We will not be back and will not recommend to others. It’s just not the same.
