While the service level and ambience were really great, the food left a great deal to be desired. Their famous onion rings were very tasty and the salted caramel cheesecake was an exceptional dessert. However, our Caesar salads and our steaks were utterly lackluster and thoroughly disappointing. A price tag of $450 for dinner for two should have left us wowed not woeful. Sadly, RingSide fell FAR below their reputation and we won't be returning again.

The outdoor dining area is almost as classy as the interior. Well-placed heat lamps, good separation between tables, music, same excellent service.

Ringside has been a favorite of ours for years. The atmosphere takes you back, the mood and feel of the bar, the warm fireplace in the main room, the wine room--where to sit??? The best service anywhere, don't be afraid to ask for recommendations especially from the bar--old school drinks that shouldn't be missed!! The food is fabulous, especially those onion ring!!! Someday I'll try the fried chicken, but the steaks are top! Miss seeing Pork Chops on the menu....!

This is our favorite steakhouse in Portland. The booths, huge stone fireplace, decor, service really set this place apart and after so many years of birthday celebrations, it's a welcome friend. We always order the onion rings and they remain crisp and irresistible. The steaks are cooked to a turn, buttery to cut through and chew. The green beans as a side were even better than the spinach (our usual). And the burnt creme was so tasty our birthday celebrant forgot to share. Had to get one to go! Another lovely night to ring in another year!

Food and service was good but on the high side. Bar was jam packed therefore, nowhere to sit while waiting. Ordering drinks while waiting was difficult.

Delicious food, superb service. Room (wine cellar) was too noisy to have a conversation. This is a great, iconic restaurant, with the exception of the noise level.

Room was loud. Service was rushed. Was not a relaxing meal or experience. Had to ask for the salad after the rest of our meal was served. Had made the 6:45pm reservation to have the Wednesday Prime Rib special on my birthday. We were immediately informed that the restaurant was out of Prime Rib. Not the outcome we expected.

James was an excellent server. The "upgraded" Caesar Salad was great as was the Gin Gimlet and house red James suggested. However, the Prime Rib was somewhat tough and dry. The Yorkshire Pudding tried to make up for it. Go for other than this rib night and you will always be pleased.

We went to ringside steakhouse to celebrate my husband‘s birthday. We were not disappointed. The service was exceptional and the food was very good. We each had a New York steak and some amazing prawns. The salad was fresh and delicious. Highly recommend coming here for special occasions!

I was disappointed. A $400 dinner for four people. Two meals were terrible, halibut and a filet that was undercooked by a mile. Two meals were good. For the price these meals should have been perfect. I have always loved the Ringside but I fear they are falling in expertise, customer care, and food preparation. I have purchased USDA Prime ribeye's, cooked them myself, and had a much better steak than the one I received here, and it was a good meal, but not especially spectacular as you would expect. I will have to think twice before I return.

We had outside seating in their newly opened and fully covered/heated area behind the restaurant. The service was impeccable, as always, and the selection of steaks and accompanies was perfect, as always, starting with the James Beard recommended onion rings. We'll definitely plan to come back the next time we're visiting in Portland.

RingSide has been promoting "Prime Rib Wednesdays" for some time. Three course dinner for $43 per plate. I love prime rib, so we made a reservation for Wednesday at 7:45 PM (earliest available). We arrived on time and waited in a crowded lobby for 15-20 minutes before our table was available. When we started to order the prime rib special, we were told they were out of prime rib. So we ordered off of the regular menu, which is excellent, but far more expensive. With wine and tip, our total came to $290. It wasn't so much the price difference that bothered me as it was the disappointment at not getting my favorite prime rib! I'm not sure how you could run out of prime rib at a steak restaurant when you are promoting it on a certain night. Oh well....
