Visiting in Portland & it was our last night in the city. We were celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary & my husband was craving a good steak. Ringside came as a recommendation from a friend & I’m so glad we took him up on it!!! My husband loved every bit of his steak! I had the steelhead salmon & it was delicious! Service was fantastic! Awesome experience!

Great classic Manhattans! Creme brulee could have been a little better, but over all a good American steakhouse dinner.

Delicious food with excellent service. Our server was Karen. She was knowledgeable, attentive with out being intrusive, and personable. She paced everything perfectly from our drinks, to appetizers, to salads, to steaks, to the delicious birthday treat.
I would highly recommend the Ringside to anyone who enjoys a fine dining experience with amazing food, and impeccable service. They definitely service the best steaks in town!

Best steak we've ever had! (I had the mini filets, and my husband had the prime rib). Good charcuterie plate. The sides were just okay- a bit under seasoned (bland) for my taste. I think they put the most focus on the meat, and well, it is a steakhouse after all so to be expected. Desserts were not so great - but really there's so much food, you might skip it anyway. The atmosphere and service were great. They put a lot of work into the presentation. We enjoyed it- it was a nice fancy dinner out for us.

Delicious food & excellent service justified high prices at Ringside Steakhouse. My family and I enjoyed the wedge salad, Caesar salad, onion rings, and fillet mignon, offered in various sizes and cooked to perfection. The mashed potatoes/loaded backed potato included with the steaks were also very tasty.
There is no place to sit in the bar and have a drink if one arrives before his reservation time, as the restaurant uses this as an extension of the dining room and serves dinner at the various bar tables as well as at the bar counter. As a result we had wine in the lobby, which was not ideal but the waiter was attentive and frequently returned with our chilled bottle of wine to refill our glasses.
Ringside Steakhouse is a special occasion restaurant, but everything was most satisfying and I look forward to dining here again.

Everything was wonderful. I don't like that you have to pay extra to get a vegetable. Many people have a low carb lifestyle for health reasons. While I love potatoes, I can't eat them. You should have a vegetable option on the menu besides potatoes that come with the meal.

I'll preface this review by saying we've dined at Ringside on several occasions and had stellar service by career servers. Unfortunately, last night for our 20th anniversary we can't say the same. It took 18 minutes for someone to take our drink order. We were 2 minutes away from leaving. The server was cordial, but he didn't provide that top-notch experience you expect from a fine steakhouse. In fact, I don't believe he even introduced himself by name. He may have been overworked because he had several large tables, which were clearly more important to him. I understand - that's where the majority of his tips would come from, but it was our 20th wedding anniversary so I felt cheated. We picked Ringside out of all the other steakhouse options in Portland for this special night because we thought we'd get great service in a romantic location. On top of that, our order was wrong. No, I didn't say anything at the time because I didn't care to deal with it and it wasn't an egregious error. But again, I have a higher expectation of service when you pay over $50 for an 8 oz. steak. The food is wonderful at Ringside (their special lobster mashed potatoes was to die for), but the whole package is what has us returning time after time. I've learned that the next time we go I'll be sure to request one of their long-time servers.
