We had a wonderful dinner and our server Katie was amazing, she treated us like we were VIP's and took care of our every need. The onion soup was amazing! My steak was cooked perfect and the garlic mashed potatoes were yummy!

My family and I go to Ringside every March for "March dining month". We have always found the food to be excellent and the service friendly and attentive. We will look forward to going back again with a smile on our faces.

I was not surprised that the Ringside would be slow on a night like tonight, the day before all restaurants were ordered closed because of the virus. Still, I had to have my French onion soup, steak, garlic mashed and crème brûlée. Oh, and a dirty martini with olives. A personal tradition I do every March 15th. And as always the service was superb by Monique.
I'll see you again in a few weeks.

It was so loud sitting in the arched brick dining area - we could barely hear each other. The service was exceptional and the food was very good but way too loud back there! If I ever go again, I would not sit back there.

It is always a pleasure to dine at RingSide Steakhouse. The service is always welcoming and friendly. The food is always top-notch, and prepared well and served attractively. The ambiance is consistent--this is a place that feels like providing a pleasant, attractive background to excellent food and gracious service is RingSide's total reason for existence.

This is our favorite restaurant in Portland. We no longer go for special occasions. Now we go for prime rib Mondays, we went for the March Portland restaurant month, and we love the steak bites and onion rings if we are looking for a smaller nibble in the bar. We always have excellent service, excellent wine and food. We are never disappointed.

The dining month menu was absolutely delicious. Portions were abundant and my steak was perfection. Our server was not engaging--did her job, but wasn't welcoming. I had to send my cocktail back because it was not made as I requested. Although my steak was fabulous, I was disappointed in the appetizer. We ordered onion rings which used to be the signature appetizer for the Ringside. These rings looked like food service frozen, hard battered, deep fried rings--similar to fast food chains--not at all the lightly battered, fresh dipped and fried rings of the past. I'm truly sad for this change.

What a pleasure it was to dine at Ringside! You feel a little transported back in time just walking through the door. The ambiance was intimate and cozy, but unpretentious. We took advantage of the Portland dining month deal and it was delicious with really nice portions. The real highlight of the experience, though, was the service. Our server, Collin, was exceptional. His timing was impeccable. He made a wonderful wine recommendation on an affordable bottle that we were really impressed with. I can’t wait to go back.

Went for Portland dining month, which is very worth the cost. The overall ambience was very moody and would be great for a special occasion.

The food was great the atmosphere was beautiful but the service well beyond fantastic. Everybody that works there from the hostess to the wait staff to the busboy we're on top of it. They make you feel like royalty while eating there.

We went for my partner's birthday and had a beautiful time! Scott was our server. He was very professional, yet warm and fun. Our meals were decadent. The ambiance and setting near the fireplace were inviting. It was a classic, upscale steakhouse experience. I look forward to returning.

Iconic old Portland steakhouse that never fails to disappoint. Onion Rings are a must and go extremely well with their house dipping sauce.

When one is thinking of Portland "old school steakhouse" the name Ringside should instantly pop into mind. From the red vinyl seating to the original light fixtures designed by the first owners, this place is classic! The good folks there have been around almost as long as when we discovered that meat tastes really, really good when introduced to flame. From the moment you step into the incredibly dark cavern of a restaurant until the sad moment when it's time to go, you are embraced in the fine and delicious cloak of Portland's perfect steak house. Dry-aged steaks that literally melt in the mouth will satisfy anyone's need for everything steak. The personable wait staff is quite possibly the best component of this equation. Knowledgeable, patient and kind people who'll treat you like they've known you for years. Simply the best!
So if you're hankering for a steak and folks that'll treat you right, The Ringside is the perfect place for you!

The food & service were above average as expected. My guests and I were quite pleased.
A complaint was lodged however, when I discovered there was NO toilet paper in the ladies room. Seriously NONE! It was only 7:45pm so there really was no excuse for this major fail.
