Outstanding restaurant with outstanding steaks, strong menu, extremely strong wine list and well trained staff. My only slight concern was that even though steaks are always served with plenty of salt, this one was way over the top to the point of detracting from the dish - maybe it was just a one-off, or there was an accident with the salt cellar, as I'd certainly go back and could also request care next time. Everything else was perfect.

RingSide is a Portland institution, and consistently one of the best steakhouses in the U.S. This is for a good reason - you can’t beat it.

With fond memories of past visits, this experience was lacking.
The service was efficient and outstanding; however, the quality of the meat was disappointing- not at all tender, but somewhat tough. The shrimp cocktail was excellent as were the drinks. Our guests enjoyed the crab cakes as well. We may not return, certainly will not buy meat entrees.

Naturally our friends positioned locally recommended Ringside to us and we were happy to follow through. Spectacular is the word that comes to mind. We reserved foolishly late on Friday itself and found a single opening in the Bar at 5:15. How bad could it be we thought, sitting in the bar. As it turned out, Elegant is the word that comes to mind. It was intimate, fabulously adorned and of course adjacent to the actual bar which was fun to watch too.
Louis served us in great fashion, answering my myriad questions about this and that. Our steaks were perfectly prepared, absolutely delicious and well presented. We will revisit again and again as it easily outdoes El Gaucho!

The filet mignon was prepared to perfection.
We are longtime customers - many decades - but were still surprised and thrilled to be complimented with two beautiful and delicious desserts.
I am pleased to substitute broiled tomatoes in lieu of potatoes.

Absolutely wonderful service and dining experience. After experiencing the after effects of COVID on staffing levels in other establishments, it was a pleasant surprise to discover such seamless service.
We shared a wedge salad, my friend had the halibut, outstanding moist and flaky, I had the prime ribeye, rate. The meat was perfectly cooked and seasoned, the side of sautéed spinach also good. The two Martinis were outstanding.
I love that they have valet parking.

As usual, our dinner experience at the Ringside was awesome...food was perfectly prepared and delicious, ambiance was a bonus to the birthday celebration for our friends, the wait staff was on top of things, and our waiter, James, was friendly, professional, and attentive! Can't wait to schedule another dinner!

We went here for a birthday dinner. Ringside did not disappoint. The steaks (their signature) had a beautiful crust and great flavor. The portions on everything were appropriate. The rest of the food was equally delicious. Our server - Stephan - mentioned that he was new to the restaurant but you wouldn't have known. His quality of service was outstanding. He was very attentive without being intrusive. My boyfriend was delighted to see the table scraper in action to catch our crumbs.

We feel that since we are loyal customers of Ringside Steakhouse we are qualified to comment on the reopening since Covid shut everything down. This has always been our favorite restaurant in Portland and we always come here to celebrate special occasions and we come even on occasions that are not special but just wanting a good meal cause it was always guaranteed in the past. My meal was fine: the twin filets Oscar style however my husbands bone in New York was just average and in fact we have had better New York’s from our local grocery store which is hard to believe cause nothing could ever beat a steak from Ringside. It appeared his steak wasn’t cut evenly so the doneness was different from one side to the other. Another disappointing thing was the menu had very few options and it also appeared the prices have increased(?) We probably won’t return for a while as we are waiting to see if things return to the way they used to be at Ringside…well at least the quality of the New Yorks that is. :(

As usual the food and service is excellent. We looked forward to drinks and onion rings to start our dinner. Then we had lobster and filet mignon. The lobster was delicious. The filet melted in your mouth. Our waiter was very attentive. It was an evening to be remembered.

Service from Kelly was first-rate -- perfectly orchestrated. She recommended a lovely Oregon Pinot Noir (Shea Vineyards) which turned out to be an ideal accompaniment. First to arrive were the onion rings -- exquisite except that the dipping sauce offered was tasteless. The wedge salad was very good -- ice cold and great proportioning of cheese. The filet mignon and ribeye were truly outstanding. The meat was full of flavor, butter tender, and cooked exactly as ordered. The let-down was the Bearnaise sauce. Again, unfortunately, so bland that it might have been mayonnaise with yellow food coloring. The garlic mashed potatoes were a better choice than the French fries. We were way too full for dessert but left happy. Easy valet parking was a great perq.
