Ringside has been our go-to place for the finest in dining. It is rich in tradition and that tradition continues. Elegant but casual in feeling. The music (standards) compliments this establishment's notable history. The care taken in the preparation and presentation of the food is outstanding. Simply outstanding.

Classic steakhouse with delicious prime rib cooked to order! Only weird thing was the pile of grated horseradish on the plate; it could easily have been mistaken for cabbage, and a big bite would set the mouth on fire. My recommendation... chop the grated horseradish and stir it into whipped cream and serve in a small dish on the plate. Hot bread was salted and buttery and tasty. Service was very attentive but not too much. We loved the place!! Visiting from Southern California; hope to be back on our next trip.

Wow! Where to begin. Several years ago, my family travelled to Portland for a family vacation. During our stay we chose Ringside for one of our evening mea. To make a long story short: the meal blew our minds from the steak to our server Les, the overall experience earned Ringside a memorable, mythical status in our hearts and stomachs. Fast forward to last night, my girlfriend and I are on vacation in Portland. Needless to say, we HAD to come to Ringside. I was a bit worried that it couldn’t possibly live up to the all the hype I had been placing on it. After all, I was now an adult, I’d had a lot of steaks in the past 8 years, and let’s be real... most things fall short of expectations. This lived up to the hype and then some. Best meal that I’ve had all year...maybe ever! Our server Mary was amazing and made our experience everything and more than we could have hoped for!!!!!! Let’s talk food for a second. The onion rings, best I’ve ever had. The drinks...the Paloma, the Pinot noir flight. The fresh bread with butter. Dry aged bone-in NY strip steak. Loaded baked potato. Creme brûlée. On a scale of 1-10. This is a 10 and I don’t give out 10s. It is that good. Until next time!

Food was great expect one the steaks wasn’t cooked properly, they did fix it but by then everyone else was almost finished. It was my 2nd dinner at Ringside this week and I will continue coming. They have the BEST steak in Portland and my minor issue wouldn’t affect me coming here again.

Spectacular, as always, from the perfectly shaken grey goose martinis, freshly baked sour dough bread, scrumptious caesar salad & the most tender ribeye steak w/a full on baked potato. We skipped the creme brulee since we were already full by then. Everything was spot on. It was our anniversary & we spend it yearly @ Ringside. The place never disappoints. Even the mints are tasty!

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.
