Had a friend in town and he had never experienced the Ringside. We were seated in the first addition, a little side room where it was easy to talk. We had the fabulous onion rings to start. I had the salmon that was cooked perfectly and my friend had a small mignon with prawns and lobster mashed potatoes. Both dishes were delicious.

Over the past 20+ years we have we have been to the Ringside Steakhouse whenever we are in Portland. It has always been our favorite restaurant in Portland. We have always been willing to pay the price for great food and great service. This time was a little less to our liking. Our server (William) was too aggressive in wanting to take our order even though we told him we were just relaxing and wanted to take our time. We ordered the sirloin and a bone in rib eye. The rib eye was missing most of the bone, so not worth the increase in price. It also didn't have that melt in your mouth flavor we were used to. We order the cheesecake for dessert but to go. For the price the size was not impressive. Very small. Overall it was a good dinner but not what we have come to expect and get from the Ringside.

We both had the surf n turf 3 course meal. The salad was lovely, I upgraded to the lobster mashed potatoes which were yummy? My steak was good my husbands was a bit overdone. They promptly brought another and shrimp cocktail to keep him busy while her waited. Monique was terrific.

The ambiance is that of an old time steakhouse with leather booths and tuxedoed waiters. The food was exceptional across the board. The service started out timely and paced. But when the second seating came in service was pretty much nonexistent. The waiter only checked on us one time to say that there was a birthday at the table and that a dessert would be coming out. That took 15 mins. We also asked for coffee and that came about 10 minutes later. No refills of coffee without flagging down a busboy.

This would have been a great dining experience at any time, but to be able to come in at 11:30 pm on a Sunday evening and be served a full, multi-course dinner in the high style is really something exceptional. I believe having had the OpenTable reservation helped. They were expecting me when I showed up, and I had the assurance of knowing that I was not unwelcome at that hour. True, at a certain point I was the only customer left and I felt I shouldn't linger, but we're talking about after midnight on a Sunday. The attention to service continued when my server rushed outside with my forgotten leftovers just as I was getting into my Uber car. I was glad for this the next day!
