    Outstanding and getting event better - service, food and ambiance. Ringside is one of Portland's top 3 high-end restaurants - perhaps the very best.

    Our group from Seattle celebrated my birthday in Portland for a mini getaway. I had the best and most memorable birthday ever dining at the RingSide Steakhouse. Our wait person provided impeccable service and the prime filet dinner was melt in the mouth delicious. She was so attentive to details and accommodated our friend who is allergic to dairy with other options. All of the staff including the valet were friendly and provided exemplary customer service which made all the diners feel special and welcomed. My husband commented on how well seasoned his filet was and asked about the ingredients. He was given a sample container of the seasoning salt which was so unexpected and appreciated. The steakhouse experience of a bygone era with well dressed wait staff, ambience, and a well curated menu is a rarity.

    You know what you'll be getting at The Ringside, and that's excellence in all categories. Well, "value" is an amorphous term, and I wouldn't say one goes there for "value." Clearly great care goes into preparation, and the restaurant always manages to offer superior, pretension-free service: our waiter had the emotional intelligence to read the table and respond accordingly to everyone in our party. You can be confident that you'll be in good hands here.

    Super great overall, just a couple minor items - my Dad's onion soup did not make it to the table, they apologized and it wasn't put on the view. We should have asked to be sure, but we're not certain if we were supposed to get bread with out meals...the server remarked that the plates that were there when we sat down were for bread, but we didn't order bread and none was every brought out, so just not sure on that. ALL of the food was excellent - prime rib, a new york, a tenderloin, and fried chicken - all cooked perfectly. Only one minor thing, my Mom's Yorkshire Pudding was way overdone. There was no creamy or custardy center and it was very dark and brittle overall - we didn't know how it should have been prepared until we looked it up after our meal, but that's the only item we feel they should have caught and replaced before serving it...Great service (other than the forgotten soup) and the meal was excellent overall, great time for us. We shared two bottles of wine and that was very reasonable, there were MANY wine options, of course....

    The lobster and filet mignon were just okay but for the price; it should have been memorable. The problem was lack of seasoning/flavor. The portion was mediocre too. The onion rings were the best part of or meal/experience. Thank you!

    The lobster mash was so delicious. I have been talking about it all nigth. I will definitely be returning for the lobster mash. Probably the best thing I have ever had. Our server was not very attentive. He forgot our French onion soup and never checked on us from when we got our food until we were finished. A server for the tsble offered her guests a free crème brûlée for their anniversary. Our waiter didn’t even mention anything to us about our anniversary. We definitely weren’t there for anything free but iimangine how you’d feel.

    my only complaint was I ordered my steak to be medium rare and it was much closer to medium. I did not send it back because my dinner date was too embarrassed to have me send it back. I would recommend ringside but was very disappointed to have a top steak house not preparing the steak properly.

    Bone marrow appetizer is my favorite! I'm not a fan of the mashed potatoes that lacked flavor& had a weird consistency. The filet mignon was delicious - perfectly cooked & tender. I'm a butter snob, not a fan of the butter served with the bread. The brussel sprouts were good; I ate very few. Not a fan of the squash - too mushy for me. My friend won't go back with me, though I would just for the marrow!

    Best steakhouse in Portland. Filet mignon melts in your mouth. Onion rings are addictive. Cocktails made with care. Would like to see a wider selection of red wine by the glass instead of so many Pinot Noir choices.

    Excellent food as usual. While not inexpensive you get what you pay for, high quality good food. I brought a finicky relative this time and he said it was the best Prime Rib he had ever had. And he didn't even use their incredible horseradish which for me raises the Prime Rib to another level. No matter what food I am having, I ask for some of their horseradish.

    The food was excellent as usual and service was wonderful. The only problem that was a BIG detractor is that we were seated in the wine room along with a large party of 10 celebrating a birthday. Unfortunately, it was so loud that it was difficult to enjoy a lovely dinner or have a conversation. There was one person in particular that sounded like he was speaking with a bull horn. We actually don’t fault the restaurant guests. We fault the restaurant for being greedy and sitting us in the corner of the wine room with that large party. When the manager stopped by at the end of our meal to apologize for the noise level, I mentioned that it would be great if they gave the entire wine room to the lathe party. And he replied that to reserve the whole room, the party would need to go through “private dining” which I’m assuming means paying more for a private room. So instead, the lathe party gets to have a great time in the room but the experience of any other small group of 2 will be negatively impacted I had not asked to be seated in the wine room when I made the reservation and I will be sure to make a note in future reservations to not be seated in there. If they lead us to the woe room again, I will leave. That is how unenjoyable the experience was.

    Bring back the old bigger menu and dry aged steaks!! It's gotten extremely expensive and I miss the old menu with many more items on it before Covid. Also more limited on the steaks which are dry aged which were always my favorite.
