The service was outstanding and food exemplary! Collin was our waiter — he made a wonderful experience even better with his attention to detail and attentive ways. It was our first experience in the Ringside dining room, and we plan to return soon.

Ringside is a special place. I usually make it in once or twice a year and have always enjoyed the experience. Steaks are fantastic, servers are pros and the wine list is extensive. A Portland must!

My husbands birthday. Steak was amazing as were the onion rings. Best in town. Our server, Kelli, was wonderful and she has a great laugh. The manager, Geoffrey, always makes you feel welcome. The Ringside is always our go to for special occasions or when we have out of town visitors. Until next time.

We ordered a Bone in New York steak. The flavor was terrible! Partly our fault because we ordered it medium well. Besides being dry it had some seasoning, which made the steak taste bad.

Ringside is a Portland classic. The service is outstanding. Getting there is a challenge, but they make it worthwhile. For some reason the staff knew it was my birthday. We were given extras we were not expecting. The food was good. We had meat and potatoes. Go there once in your life so you can say you did.

Go every night if you're wealthy, if not (like me) just go once a year for a special occasion. My fiance and I went for her 30th birthday dinner and had a wonderful time. Dropped over $200 on a meal for two but...yeah, best meal of my life and all that.

Recommended.

The food was superb, filet mignon cooked rare, just as ordered and beautifully sauced, the service was gracious and not overbearing and the environment, many small, intimate "rooms" that facilitated adult conversation in contrast to the racket of most contemporary restaurants, was warm and welcoming. Even the complementary valet parking was done with speed and grace. Prices are high but consistent with the quality of food and service. The wine list is extensive and excellent. Yes, it's something of a throwback to the 1950's. In this instance that's a giant step forward.

When one books a RingSide table, the expectation is that all diners will order a steak. Our party had one vegetarian who opted to order two vegetable side dishes. The server came out with a beautifully presented complete vegetarian entree, every bit as delicious as anything ever served at Tusk. Vegetarians take note: don't rule out the RingSide Steakhouse!
The only negative: Our booth was positioned near the bus station—never the optimal location for conversation.

This has been our go to place for a beautiful, excellent dinner for many years and it never disappoints! They have introduced a few new dishes which were splendid! The Ahi was fresh and so tender! Large portion for an appetizer as well. The artichoke and fennel appetizer is a real winner if you love fennel! Of course the perfect onion rings are a real treat along side the prime rib; that was tender, so juicy and cooked to perfection. Perfect place for a celebration, or a special date night! Always delightful :)

Had a great time. My wife and I were celebrating our 49th anniversary and so want have a nice meal but not have to dress up to much. This fit the bill very well. The service was very good. Took a bit longer to order our drinks and appetizer than it could have but the servers more than made up for the wait, again they were great. Both my wife and I had the supper special. The meat sauce was a bit to salty and the prawns were over cooked, a bit dry and chewy. But all in all we had a great time and will go there again when we have the chance.

As usual the food and service were both very good. However, just a tip to your servers - don’t ever take the check after it’s signed from the table before the guests leave. It’s terrible etiquette and makes the guests feel rushed.

As always Ringside's food is exceptional. We have been treating ourselves to Ringside on December 30 for the last 5 years and always walk out feeling well cared for (and well fed) with no regrets about the expense. This year I was surprised to see that the prices increased and the service, while still good, was not as attentive or professional as in the past. Still a great restaurant experience, but didn't hit the bar that they have set for themselves.
